      Yeah. Went to Grimes Graves and then had lunch and a walk in Thetford.

      How interesting to have a statue of American Revolutionary patriot, Thomas Paine, in England. His words are eternal:

      "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

      This image would be a welcome addition to ~~


      THANKS!
