On one trip, I went horseback riding in Hyde Park.If you are interested, I will locate their business card in my little travel Rolodex.And yes, ppauper, I also detect romantic undertones here.Good for ULtraviolet. Try not to burn this young army officer with your UV radiance.

My weekend works well if there is a dangerous liaison or not. Champagne is always a good way to round off an evening along with a pipe and the dulcet tones of WH.
