"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  3. I don't think so, OR, though we do have similar tastes in politics too :-)

    It does us good to take time out from politics, Mrs R. I'd have enjoyed it better if my speakers weren't so tinny - I keep meaning to adjust the controls - and then forgetting!

  5. You're welcome, Lion. Whatever your nation is, there are plenty of images to choose from in the clip - loughs, lochs, lakes and llyns - and Handel's largo does justice to them. They'll all still be here when you come home :-)
