The weather in England suddenly turned hot and sunny last Tuesday , the day we arrived in London. Perhaps summer has arrived, after the cold snap experienced during the last week. I took a break in the cool shade of the beautiful trees on the walk up to Alexandra Palace. The weather remained great for the couple of days we were in Somerset, to meet a long lost Simmons cousin and to follow some other family history leads. We returned to London tonight for an important appointment to see the House of Commons - Grandfather James Simmons was a Member of Parliament, so we are still tracing the footsteps of Simmons ancestors and appreciating the historical sites connected to the family.
