    It is.
    I know how hard is to march in a straight line. Each time I watch it I'm fascinated by the way they turn the corner.

    It also will use a lot of experience riding on a horse and playing an instrument, I think. Making the horse walk the direction it should go.

    thats right,they make it look easy but i'm very sure it isn't,i feel sorry for the ones lining the Mall who can't move,it must be such a relief when it's over and they can move again.

    oh that's a shame,it's a wonderful sight,we see the Red Arrows quite a lot when we are in Lincolnshire,when we are at antiques fairs there they often practice so we get a free show.

    What I admire on such occasions is the discipline of the spectators when they're marching towards Buckingham Palace.

    Well, we have Justin Bieber, so top that!

    We invented the Pop Tart, FaceBook, roll-on deoderant, those little packs of sweetner and the space shuttle, so there.

    If we need to see colors, we have the net that Algore invented. I think we invented the color green, too.
