I would really have liked to see close up pictures of the carriage and the painting with the M&Ms. M&Ms are my absolute favorites and would love to add those guardsmen to my collection of M&M stuff. I betcha it was Red that stood guard.

If I ever got into one of those factories, they'd have to call security to get me out. Mmmm.. Chocolate!

It'd love to see the carriage and the painting too. Though I'd probably eat them all .

If sensory tubs for OT had chocolate, more kids would want to go to OT, and actually touch stuff. I have some kids who are on the tactile defensive side, and I think chocolate would be the only thing they'd be willing to touch without having a meltdown.

Sadly, the tubs I worked with had no chocolate, only things like sand, rice, and dry cereal! Had there been chocolate, I would have been in paradise....

I can only imagine, because I'd be begging the OT to take me to the session, so that I could 'encourage' the student to participate...errr...have some of that chocolate in the tub .

Joe Little ‏@MajestyMagazine 2h
Daniel Craig aka James Bond has had another close encounter with the Queen, this time with his wife for a 'dine and sleep' at Windsor Castle

That must have been a great honor for them.

OMG What is Kate Bush wearing? Someone tell she is at Windsor Castle not at the supermarket, please.
The Queen's dress is fabulous!

Kate Bush stays out of the limelight these days, I'm surprised she went to the investiture at all.

I agree that the Queen's dress is a real cracker.

Who is Kate Bush and, she looks like she just got out of bed. I was under the impression you are supposed to at least look presentable when you meet the Queen. Hmm.
