This England Summer 2004 p.40 © This EnglandThis England Summer 2004 p.41 © This EnglandTwo magazines, This England and Evergreen, portray a country of the mind, though it is one that can still be observed, if only in the peripheral field of view. The front cover of the current This England issue (content may change by the time you visit) shows a guardsman in full red tunic dress uniform, replete with bearskin. Beside him two children in American sports style tops, replete with numerals, add a modern perspective. The magazine offers sample articles to encourage subscription, and from Summer 2004 edition you may visit the idyllic English country village of Bosham, which we are advised is pronounced 'Bozzum'.

Clicking the left hand thumbnail will take you to the first page of the article, and the right hand thumbnail to the second page. The pages show today's featured pictures: the harbor, and Holy Trinity Church. You may read the history of the village, including its connection with King Canute, whose egoism has been much exaggerated.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
