Quotation: The Coalition

My sister wanted Nick Clegg, our new Deputy Prime Minister, to get a mention on my blog, presumably in the spirit of impartiality. So here it is:
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.

Ah yes, impartiality and balance and all that! I note they're each wearing their party colours on their tie...

Hi, Ruth... I just got a lesson in the British parties from another friend from England. She straightened out my confusion as to who is with which party. Since I am clueless (obviously from my gaffe of thinking the new PM is from the party of his rival), I just hope that you all are happy with the people who are elected. Love that picture! Maybe we could borrow them if they work out well! You all give them a trial run first! ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)
