London, England, here I come!

In a few days, I depart for the U.K.—summoned to host ye olde sport of Bingo—as part of a TV pilot for Channel 4!

I’m thrilled to death.  For one thing, I haven’t been to London since the 1980s!  I was a wee lass…

Back then I snapped this cheery bloke at Hyde Park’s famous “Speakers’ Corner,” where British soapbox orators gather to pontificate, rant and rave.

Obviously Mr. Sourpuss was wrong!  The earth still spins, and it’s time for me to leap across the pond!
