Cry God for Harry, England and St George!

Today is St. George's Day...the patron saint of England (and Palestine, Moscow, Aragon...and quite a few others!).

There is much written about St. George and his many adventures...of course the best known tale is that of him killing a dragon to stop a princess/fair damsel/girl being offered to the dragon as a sacrifice...

St. George...dragon slayer, martyr and subject of many beautiful paintings..

Today is also the anniversary of an accident that saw me being taken of in an ambulance to hospital. Well - not straight away, had to wait for the parents to come home from their St. George's Day dinner and discover me in a heap on the floor.

He is also the patron saint of the Russian Spy Service. Also the patron saint of Moscow. I have an orthodox church wood carving of him.

It will not succeed in reality, that's exactly what I think.
