One Rule For Rich

Last weekend the weather was lovely in England. A group of us had lunch in the Bear Hotel in Woodstock to celebrate my youngest daughter’s birthday and Mothers’ Day.

While in Woodstock my eldest daughter and I visited Blenheim Palace (photo below) three times enjoying the grandeur of the palace and the beauty of the gardens and the grounds. The land and a large sum of money was given to the first Duke of Marlborough by Queen Anne and a grateful nation for his victory over the French at Blenheim in 1704. A very handsome present indeed! No doubt he was a great general, but I presume the foot soldiers and the widows and orphans left after the battle got nothing. ‘Twas ever thus!
