surprised they haven't done anything for St George's Day/Shakespeare's birthday yet, unless they haven't got round to it!

they've certainly had a good week, what with the Chaplin and yesterday's, which will be hard to beat, although personally I've always thought that there was something rather creepy about Chaplin, I think it's the moustache!

Well the St George's Day one didn't come up on Google UK's homepage, not surprised you missed it!

In Honour of Sergei Prokofiev (Russia
Ive loved that story since I was a child, and still love introducing it to my students, who get to act it out with such relish!
