Happy Saint George's Day, the Patron Saint of England.
Today marks the day that a fire breathing dragon was slain. <insert mother in law jokes here>
In old England, brave George is remembered for summoning tremendous strength, courage and determination. He killed the dragon that has been attacking the villagers, destroying their crops and turning their homes into ashes.
|Saint George and The Dragon visit London City|
He paid for his beliefs when he made a plea to the Emperor Diocletian to spare the lives if Christians. The Emperor decided that if George cared so much for these lowly citizens, then he must also be a devout Christian himself. He was tortured to force him to deny his faith and when this did not yield the desired response, he was beheaded, at the age of 33.
The slaying of the dragon is symbolic of the courage George showed against the Emperor. It is however a little ironic that George did not win his battle, nor did he ever set foot in England. He was born in Turkey and died in Palestine.
Saint George's day was adopted in 1222, when he replaced Saint Edmund the Martyr (King of East Anglia) as England's Patron Saint.

Margarita Pracatan is a Cuban singer who found unexpected success in the 1990s.
Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing her own unique rendition of a beautiful ballad performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat.
For the first time ever in London City, Margarita performs a breathtaking show which also serves as a heartwarming Birthday message to her Majesty The Queen, who turned 90 during the week.
A show not to be missed!
Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

We started counting New Residents born into London City a few years ago and not from the very beginning. So although this is not an all time record, it is a modern day record.
And today we reached a milestone, the 100,000th New Resident in London City.
And here he is!
Thank you JuicyBalls for making the 100,000th new resident a memorable occasion for everyone.

In concert on Saturday: Dolly Parton, the Tribute show in London City.
Dolly Parton, was terribly poor for the first six minutes of her life, and then became wealthy beyond the dreams of Avarice for the next 70 years, but hasn't lost touch with her humble beginnings.
Partly because no one wants to hear songs about a billionaire with tax return problems, when poor and broken hearted sells better, Dolly has endured over the years by reinventing her image over and over.
Come party with us on Saturday from 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL.
