The Irish Guards are trooping the colour this year for the Queen’s Birthday.
I found it interesting that the colour has the Red Hand of Ulster (Lámh Dhearg Uladh) on it. The iconography continues to be used by organizations in Ulster that target Catholics living in Northern Ireland.

Britain is looking to spend £458k on two ‘Tethered Uncrewed Air Systems’ for the Royal Navy with a flight time of 24 hours and operational height of 90 meters.
There are a lot of advantages to tethered systems. They can link their telemetry discretely down and the power to keep them aloft goes up. Their radar cross-section is small and you can use them as radar pickets distant from the mother ship by running them from tenders/combat rubber raiding craft/RIB. The problems that come with operating these are sea state and wind. A brisk breeze will make them non-operational. A winged UAV that can face the wind like a weather vane might be a better choice.
Somebody has to be thrown to the wolves over the Epstein matter. Why not Prince Andrew? He may have been insulated from other pederasts such that he doesn’t have much to talk about.
There is also an accuser ready to discuss all of the disgusting things that Andrew did to her underage self. She also has a big payday if she’s successful in seeing him convicted in a criminal court.
It may be good for me, or maybe somebody has a profound sense of humor, but my healthcare professional offered a list of ten dishes that I could eat for the sake of health. The list consisted of stews of slimy vegetables.
Unlikely I’ll go in that direction. Tonight, shrimp tacos. Or because it’s MLK Day, maybe chicken?
And speaking of Federal Holidays, this from Frank from Nebraska:
