Queen Elizabeth II sells gin
 
Queen Elizabeth II sells gin.

Queen Elizabeth II is selling gin made from leaves found at the back of Buckingham Palace as cash from tourists visiting her residences has plunged. Royal Collection Trust, a department of the Royal Household, launched a premium small-batch London dry gin for sale in its shops on Monday, infused with bay and mulberry leaves found in her back garden. It comes days after it was reported revenues from tourists visiting her homes were wiped out by the coronavirus pandemic, causing an £18 million ($22 million) black hole in the finances. Up to 250 workers have been offered voluntary buyouts, according to The Sun newspaper. Selling at £40 ($50) a bottle, the Buckingham Palace gin will help bolster the royal finances. All profits from sales of the gin go to the Royal Collection Trust, which is a registered charity, and will help fund the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, the trust said in a statement. The Royal Collection is among the largest and most important art collections in the world, and one of the last great European royal collections to remain intact.

#Emoji

World Emoji Day
 
World Emoji Day

Emoji's were first created by Japanese artist Shigetaka Kurita in 1999. Japanese mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMo, originally used emojis created by him to deliver weather reports to its pager users. Kurita created a set of 176 emojis (pic below) as part of team DoCoMo. New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) acquired the original design & has them displayed as a wallpaper. Also, the Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year 2015 was: 😂 yes, the 'Face With Tears of Joy' emoji. For the first time an emoji was chosen & it was the most used emoji of that year.
On a parting note...
