Many GBN.com readers will be looking forward to a four-day holiday weekend in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen. The celebrations will be world-wide: in addition to being the British Monarch, The Queen is also the Head of State of 15 Commonwealth realms and Head of the Commonwealth itself, a voluntary association of 54 independent countries.
Next week GBN.com will focus on the 175th Anniversary of John Deere, the Company founded in an Illinois blacksmith shop back in 1837, which incidentally, amongst its many credits, holds a ‘Royal Warrant’ that uniquely covers the supply of agricultural, groundscare & horticultural products to The Queen’s household.
Much closer to home (and at a very much lower level) there are celebrations in the offices of GBN.com This morning we published our 10,000th story! All our stories are accessible in the archive and provide a unique resource of information about golf. In fact you could spend the whole weekend just looking through the records…… Oh, I forgot – you probably have a party to go to.
