I know all this because I tried to do their Broadcast program, but it was only months after my Transplant, I was still dealing w/what happened during (I came very close to losing it) it and I really should have waited a year before going to College in order to deal w/some things, but I didn't. Oh well, you know what they about hindsight, right? Anyway, I hope that helps a little. :)

It's not a big thing in the UK. Snooker tables would be much more popular.

Anna thanks for the links to photos. I love that Oscar De la Renta dress but not a fan of the Peter Piloto. I don't like the design or finish to them but obviously Sophie likes them. Love the clips of her serving lunch.

Today/tomorrow is when they do a mini hike I think. Can't imagine Sophie will be doing that in a dress!

Prince Edward received an impromptu lecture on B.C. labour relations Friday as he and his wife, Sophie Rhys-Jones, kicked off a five-day tour of the province.

A crowd of students watched the earl and countess of Wessex inspect a naval guard of honour as the lieutenant governor welcomed the pair to Government House.

Prince Edward, the Queen's youngest son, asked the children when school would start again.

"We don't know yet. The teachers are still on strike," answered one girl.
"It also ended school early as well," said another.

A friendly chat Saturday between Jeneece Edroff and Sophie Rhys-Jones, Countess of Wessex, revealed the pair have something special in common: a birthday.

“I’ll be 21 Jan. 20, she’ll be 50 Jan. 20,” Edroff said, as Sophie and her entourage drove away from Jeneece Place at Victoria General Hospital.

Sophie and her husband, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex — the youngest of the Queen’s children — are in B.C. for five days. Sophie’s Saturday itinerary included visits to Jeneece Place, the Our Place social agency and the University of Victoria.

Having the countess come to Jeneece Place was “absolutely amazing,” said Edroff, the driving force behind the facility that bears her name. Jeneece Place, opened in 2012, is a “home away from home” for families with children who need to come to Victoria for

Love the photos of Sophie at JP and the homeless shelter- especially of her serving lunch.
Love her new dress.

Thirteen-year-old Victoria Gardner made the second British royal sighting of her young life on Sunday when she handed a bouquet of flowers to Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

The flowers were picked from her mother Tamara’s garden in Maple Ridge and taken all the way to Vancouver to be presented to the countess before her visit to the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre at Vancouver General Hospital.

Victoria’s first royal sighting was Queen Elizabeth II, during the monarch’s Golden Jubilee tour of Canada. Her three older siblings presented the queen with flowers, but Victoria was just a baby.

So happy the amazingly incredible work being done at the centre w/exo bionics and the exoskeleton frame is getting this attention. It's been shown that if used as early as possible after the spinal cord injury takes place, some mobility and sensation can come back to the Patient. It really is such an exciting field and it's only in the baby years of the research into what and how it can help w/Spinal Cord Injuries, but it is indeed very promising. :)

I also can't recommend everyone looking up Rick Hansen and learning his story highly enough. Rick is a true Canadian hero and also Champion of the Disabled. If it wasn't for his Foundation and the funding it helps w/, several research labs and programs would be no more due to Federal Govt cutbacks.

BTW...If you've ever heard the title song to the movie St. Elmo's Fire and wondered about it, the song is actually about Rick and not the movie. To many Cdns, myself among them, that song brings back several memories of a very special time.

To quote Forrest Gump..."And that's all I'm gonna say about that."

Prince Edward the Earl of Wessex, and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, got in touch with nature as they explored the TCT Coho River Trail in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on Sunday.

The royal couple, who are on a five-day visit to Canada, looked more casual than usual as they explored the nature trail.

Sophie, 49, looked chic in a navy suit with her hair pulled back into a low bun. Edward, 50, looked casual in cream chinos and a blue Ralph Lauren shirt.

the last day of tour is on the 19th. Perhaps they will leave on the 20th. But their final engagements are on 19.

Where are these engagements? The article said their tour ends tomorrow or the next day- that's not right.
