From all the craziness us Americans have had to endure with the political three ring circus lately, should someone read this "speculation" from Borowitz on CNN, it might actually perk quite a few ears up and a colossal sigh of relief would emanate as the multitudes gasp "Finally! A sane and reasonable solution!".

And the people would rejoice and name all their children Georges and Charlottes with the alternate names of Harry, Catherine, Elizabeth with Lupo and Marvin also acceptable.

But seriously, I can't help but to be truly amazed at the robust health and stamina that HM, The Queen presents to us each day we see her. To give up riding totally would be like giving up breathing for her. Its always been part and parcel of her life that she holds dear and a nice, brisk trot around Windsor Castle on her fell pony has got to be one of the most enjoyable past times she has. There are certain things that she has conceded to because of age and to be honest, they're very little ones that a lot of people in their 60s (even me) are already conceding to.

President of the Guinea Pig Club ? If it was not true, I would have sworn it was a sketch from Monty Python!

Despite its amusing name, it actually has nothing to do with guinea pigs,

Another not official event as the CC only has Anne doing official engagements on the 8th. I wonder why The Queen didn't class this as an official engagement???

The Duke of Edinburgh may be 95 but he appears to have a robust constitution after he told a flu expert he has not had the illness for 40 years.

Philip made the revelation about his good health when he joined the Queen on a tour of the £650 million Francis Crick Institute - a major biomedical research centre that aims to develop new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating disease like cancer, HIV and malaria.

With the flu jab recommended for the over-65s, it is not known if Philip has had the procedure but he chatted about his apparent immunity to flu expert Dr Yi Pu Lin.

How can you not love these two?

They are the ultimate pair!

Elisabeth and Philip, while not perfect are a breath of fresh air in the married stakes! I imagine she keeps him grounded and he keeps her laughing!
