After addressing her as "Your Majesty" once, it is correct to address the 
Queen of the United Kingdom as "Ma'am" (pronounced to rhyme with "ham") 
for the remainder of a conversation.

The only other Diamond Jubilee celebrated by a British monarch was in 1897 in the reign of Queen Victoria.

Okay, is this amazing or what, flower shaped ice cream cones! 
They're from Amorino.
 Such a great idea. According to this site, there are ...44 outlets in France, 
the 2 in England, not to mention the 1 in Belgium, the 7 in Germany, 
the 1 in Austria, as well as the 1 in Italy and 
the 4 in Spain all do the same.
Founded in 2002 by two enterprising Italians (Cristiano and Paolo), Amorino Gelato Al Naturale.

Omg, there is an Amorino shop in NYC!!! Whoo hoo! $6.50 a medium sized cup
 but as many flavors as one wants in one cup. Reviews.
60 University Place at 10th Street. Guess where I'm going tomorrow!?


How the Amorino place looks inside.

Uh oh. Looking up Amorino, I just learned about yet another great gelato place! Grom gelato.  There's one shop at Broadway and 76th Street and another in the West Village, off Sixth Avenue near Bleeker. Yay happy choices.
