Among other places, yesterday I went to All Hallows by the Tower in London. I had an interesting guided tour by the person there (must have been a slow day for him). William Penn (of the Pennsylvania fame) was baptized here and John Quincy Adams was married here (though neither of these events took place while I was there).

And, to incorporate literacy and literature into my blog, this part of the poem 'The Fallen' by Laurence Binyon was engraved on a memorial there:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
