Just a little corner of England here in the Milkyway.

Please feel free to contribute/comment. Graphics can always cause some bandwidth difficulties, so please limit your pics to 800 x 600 pixels. Thanks.

I'll start with a crunching theme. This is Bunny Chatrill making one of his crunching tackles for England v Wales in 1924 (England won the match)

The state opening of Parliament.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip enter the royal gallery through the north door.

Alex Goodhind, 24, from Melksham, Wiltshire, who covered his house in 130,000 Christmas lights, says the soaring cost of electricity will not spoil his festive display.

I'm not sure if he's still crunching MilkyWay ;)

"Teddy-nauts" see the curve of the Earth. The toys were launched on a helium balloon by schoolchildren working with the Cambridge University Spaceflight team.
The educational project saw the bears reach 30km on a two-hour, nine-minute mission which landed near Ipswich.

One of the UK's rarest moths, the netted carpet moth (Eustroma reticulatum), has made a comeback in the Lake District after an absence of nine years. A team of conservationists, led by the National Trust, reintroduced cattle grazing in the area, which created an ideal habitat for the moths.

Just a wee correction frae a 'British' Scot.

You have two picks showing Parliament photos, one showing our 'British' Royal family and the other shows the 'British' Red Arrows Display Team.

Hardly a little corner of England! But we in Scotland are used to this confusion!

Happy crunching guys - from another 'British' team

Hello Evodude, I'm so sorry you are confused ;) The jets are flying over England and the photograph of the Royal Family was also taken in England. In both cases the House of Parliament is in England. Most certainly a big corner of England!

btw, och aye the noo :)
