Big Ben celebrates 150 years of bongs

LONDON (AP) — Britain's Big Ben is marking its 150th birthday with a celebration in London on Saturday.

The booming bell first pealed on July 11, 1859 — a few weeks after the clock in the famous tower above the Houses of Parliament began keeping time.

A projection wishing the bell a happy birthday will be broadcast on the south side of the 315-foot (96-meter) tower at about 10 p.m. (2100 GMT; 5 p.m. EDT).

I have a great picture of Big Ben at 3:30am. I am sure not too many people have a picture like that. I was trying to walk back to my buddy's place from The Ministry of Sound.
