“The City is a world within itself. Centred in the heart of the metropolis, with its innumerable capacities for commercial pursuits, it presents at first sight, to a stranger, a most mysterious and unfathomable labyrinth of lanes and alleys, streets and courts, of lanes thronged with bustling multitude whose various occupations, though uniting in one grand whole, seem to have no direct association with each other.” ~ D. Morrier Evans
Did you see the Eclipse? If so - let me know where you were. Sadly we didn't see anything over in the land of scones and crumpets. Not that we would have anyway, as it was lovely and cloudy! Still, today was the day the mighty Big Ben bell stopped bonging for the next four years. Although it will still be used for special occasions, including New Year's Eve and Remembrance Sunday. The 13.7-tonne Great Bell has sounded on the hour for 157 years and last fell silent in 2007. The Great Clock it forms part of is to be dismantled and repaired.
It's caused a bit of kerfuffle in Britain... people saying it's a disgrace, others that it's just a bloomin' bell and there are plenty of other things to worry about. And that's true, but us Brits do like to have a bit of a moan about such things. And I had a lovely collection of messages the last time I mentioned this! I wasn't planning on posting this evening but saw this lovely shot via the @history Instagram page and couldn't resist. Even without the sound, this wonderful view is truly magical. Have a great evening! 🇬🇧 Visit Blimey.com (see link on my profile) to read more! Want your Photos of Britain to be featured?

If he wants to be with you he will.
If he wants to call you he will
If he wants to marry you he will
If he wants it if he truly wants it they will be no need for persuasion
NEVER FORCE A MAN TO BE WITH YOU BECAUSE IT WON'T WORK
Male or female the more you push the more you ruin it and hurt yourself ,the more you look needy and desperate and none of these things are attractive.When you let it happen naturally and authentically it will be beautiful but if you force it to avoid pain of losing what is not meant to be.You will miss out on what is meant to be. Believe in yourself FORCE NO ONE TO LOVE YOU "Just let it be...."
