Today was a day when I was able to be part of a very special event the elevation of my brother Nicholas to the House of Lords where will sit as Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth . It was interesting to see how the Palace of Westminster functions and share dining space with figures such as Lord Mandelson and Lord Lawson.
Also in the news was the commemoration made for the many losses of lives associated with the coal mining in Wales it being 100 years since the UK's worst mining disaster (nearly 500 lives lost).

I note how important they are becoming in many fields including contemporary art.
