Stephen Hawking sings

Monty Python's "Galaxy Song"

Last night


Sky over back gardens

Cakes today

The neeps who say knight

While Walking on Wood End Road

Time of cinnamon, time of thyme,

Time of rosemary, time of myrtle,
Time of violet, time of may,

Time of juniper, time of boxwood,
Time of forget-me-not, time of yew,

Lemon thyme, purple thyme, honesuckle, cloves,

Time of elder, time of mountain ash,
Time of tree of heaven, time of oak,

Time of sycamore, time of chestnut,
Time of wild service, time of lime,

Love lies bleeding, love in a mist, foxgloves, hops,

Time of woodbine, time of papaver somniferum,
Time of ladies' bedstraw, time of thorns,

Time of ivy, time of mushrooms,
Time of morning glory, time of hay,

Bellflower, bluebell, harebell, celandine, phlox,

Time of hawthorn, time of jasmine,
Time of blackberry, time of lilac,

Time of cinnamon, time of thyme.

Greater London is 50 years old

All about the amalgamation of boroughs and the former County of London (Diamond Geezer). All the present London boroughs were established in 1965, made up from amalgamations of smaller boroughs, except Harrow, which is the only one that was already entire. For example, Brent was formed from the earlier Wembley and Willesden boroughs. It's interesting stuff and well illustrated with maps.
