Back in 2013 someone asked "What Comes After a Diamond Jubilee?"
and we were favored with a list of contrived names for very rare
anniversaries to carry on the name traditions despite having
used up the ascending sequence of ever-more-valuable substances
with Diamond for the 60th,capping up with "Oak" for the 80th.
Today I learned there are people who have dubbed the 90th
Queen Elizabeth II marks her 65th year of reign and 70th year
of marriage this year,but the odds are still against 20 or 25
more,much though Lord Olivier may have meant "May the Queen live
forever!" at the end of "A Queen is Crowned".
Time will tell.
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
