Smashed, Salvaged, & Sixty

No new post last week for 2 reasons:

1) The last one merited an extended stay on the home page.
2) Last week I set up another LMLK account at Wordpress.

Beginning now, I'm planning to post the same message on both sites in case one goes down (you never know when it'll happen).

This week I'm merely relaying recent royal news items:

A neat seque from the previous message about 2 intact LMLK jars--This week the UK's Daily Record reported that a modern potter lost her entire collection after tripping over & smashing it 3 days before it was due to go on show!

A week ago, Lewis Smith reported in the UK's Times Online that sections of the King’s Table, a symbol of royal power until it was smashed by Oliver Cromwell, have been found beneath the floor of the Palace of Westminster.

And on Monday this week, Grant Peck reported in the Associated Press that the world's longest-reigning monarch celebrated his 60th anniversary on the throne this week: King Bhumibol Adulyadej, of Thailand!
