Becky. I too thought Macca would end with Hey Jude. I think he ended both the Golden Jubilee concert ten years ago and the Make Poverty History one in 2005 with Hey Jude (and when I saw him at Knebworth in 1990). Each time it was clearly the highlight of the concert. But as you say perhaps time constraints precluded it.

I was pleased he did Let It Be, one of my favourite Beatles' songs.

Re: Kylie doing "so many songs". Surely if you noticed the number of songs featured in her set you would have also noticed that it was more of a hits medley? Call me a cynic but she happened to release a Greatest Hits CD that very day......

What are your plans for this weekends Jubilee celebrations? Have you got the bunting out? Holding a street party - or just sitting watching it on TV?

I be there in the thick of it...

Our Jubilee plans started with a trip to Cornwall to watch the Olympic Flame arriving in the UK and then the next morning on its first day out, we watched it running past our house there, it was quite surreal to be watching it live on the telly and live out of the window at the same time, I have some great photos of the BBC News Jellycopter, and of course of the flame and its entourage. After that we moved location up to London for very nearly a week and then spent most of that time on the river/riverside in the most fantastic weather we've had this year- we did all the usual tourist stuff as well as eating some pretty strange food- which for us is quite adventurous. We were caught up in a small Jubilee Pageant rehearsal with SBS boats chugging alongside the river-boat we were aboard on the sunniest day ever- it was fantastic. Then it was back home for a few days rest before heading back to Cornwall for the Jubilee weekend, which was the wettest and coldest I've experienced in Cornwall even when compared to our winter visits there: we watched the Pageant on telly, I was a little unwell most of last week but on one of the days there, it was warm enough and pleasant enough, and I was well enough to go canoe-surfing, which I did- it was fun. We arrived home on Friday to discover that the builders have been jolly busy.... lots of stuff going on. I could post a few photos if anyone is interested.

You certainly managed to pick the right week to go up to London, Rach.
Nice shot of the Shard through Tower Bridge.

I remember remarking how hazy it was here as well, despite the warm sun those few days.

Even caught some sun in Cornwall!

We did, Ron, it was fab weather- not as hazy as it looks in the pictures- they've been shrunk for the web - all the colour's been sucked out of them. The sky was blue.

As the river boat was turning - docking at the same place the Queen's barge docked ( although in about one tenth of the time) I thought blimey! The Shard is on the bridge, snap snap snap snap ......A London Icon contains a London eyesore- how to make the Shard look small and insignificant.

The sun in Cornwall lasted an hour- that was it for the entire week.
