    Glad you could get over there to explain the news to our friends in the UK. No matter if there wasn’t a massive crowd at Hyde Park, you always have your multitude of fans here on the site.

  2. Kaye Bair Says:

    Uncle Jay! It just so happens that I have three debate classes at Snow Canyon Middle School in St. George, Utah, and we are getting up to speed on the news by watching UJETN. They didn’t know about Hyde Park, UK, so I am going to show them this episode tomorrow. I think I will also make a corner of the room my Hyde Park and offer the opportunity to freely speak about their beliefs. Thanks for the idea.
    Oh, and also, thanks from my 50 debate teams as they prepare for a battle of wits.

    Thanks, Uncle Jay, for reminding me about Hyde Park Corner. I’m a dual UK/US citizen, living in Southwest England (sort of the boonies). We have tried to make ourselves heard via letters to our Member of Parliament (we get a form letter in return), to the BBC (totally ignored) – so why not pack a picnic and make our way to London and give Hyde Park Corner a try? Though would hope for a somewhat larger audience than you drew, bless your heart!!

    You did get some of the foot traffic and folks riding the double decker to gawk your way during your impressive speech.

  5. Goldie Says:

    Uncle Jay – You forgot to bring the required prop of every speaker -> a step ladder. That would definitively identify as a Hyde Park speaker and not a another nut trying to get attention. Next time remember: step ladder.

    you forget to send me a post card. ah next time
    love goldie

  6. Donna Says:

    I would have listened to you. Unfortunately, I don’t live in London. :(

    Dear Uncle Jay – I am so glad you found time for a little vacation. You certainly deserve one!!! The poor Brits there in Hyde Park surely had no idea it was THE Uncle Jay, or they truly would’ve had to call in the police for crowd control. Glad you’re home safe and sound, and can carry on bringing explanations to us all…who need them sooooo badly these days!!
    Love ya bunches!
    P.S. Any insight on O’s vacation up there in the Vineyard??

  9. John Says:

    Uncle Jay – Next time take me along as your video guy and I’ll wire you up for better audio. Thanks for putting in the sub titles. Really glad to see you speaking to England. Sorta sad that that no one was there to enjoy you. That’s sorta like my sex life is now.

  10. Elizabeth Says:

    I loved the speach to no one (but the camera person). Many days at home i feel exactly like that since me children frequently seem to be standing around clulessly rather than listening to me. My husband finally asked my nine year old “Why does Mommy have to yell so much to get your atention?” He said “Well I don’t take her seriously untill she starts yelling. Then I figure I’d better pay attention and see what she’s yelling about.” Maybe you would have gotten more of a crowd if you had yelled.

  11. Phil Foster Says:

    Uncle Jay: Glad you got to go to London. Did you get to try “Toad in the Hole”, “Spotted Dick, “Bangers and Mash” or a McRib sandwich? Why do they eat prawns instead of shrimp?

  12. kathy Says:

    Welcome back Uncle Jay,

    I’m glad you were able get out of the studio and see some sights. Did you pick up a British accent? Did you have any Fish & Chips? Did you watch the Tele?

    Glad you made it safely home.

    Tallyho Uncle Jay (British speak):

    After seeing the size of the crowd attending your inaugural speech, we now understand why they call this speech place “Hide Park”.

    With cheer and good wishes,
    Robert

    Uncle Jay,
    I know everyone needs a vacation but I miss you when you don’t do your regular routine…er show…er class! It was a juicy week for news here in the states. Can’t wait to catch up with your “teachings” next Monday.

  16. Casey Says:

    Your weekly newsletter/video has helped me get through this summer. My husband had a stroke on Memorial Day, and it has been a life changing event for the both of us. Whenever I get too stressed from “trying to juggle 12 balls in the air at once without knowing how”, I look in on your videos, and get a smile. I learn a little too, sometimes.
