Don't be upset Ghost. This is sad political manipulation by the sad government in Argentina and it will be recognised as such.

The British Government have re-affirmed the right to self determiniation by the Falklands people and that stands as the way ahead.

It is to the Argentine Government detriment that they promote such a negative approach.

Can I say Ghost that the information and reports you bring to us all are excellent and assist in understanding what is happening. Thank you v much.

Please note that posts regarding William's uniform during his wedding (which for the record have nothing to do with the actual current events of the Cambridge's) have been moved to Wedding of William & Catherine, 29 April 2011: The Wedding Service .

The UK government said William's visit was routine, that he was there as a pilot only and would perform no public engagements while there. They were as good as their word - we saw next to nothing of William while he was in the Falklands. It's a shame that Argentinians react this way.

Have to laugh though, everything Argentina has been doing lately has just hardened the resolve of the Islanders to remain British. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

Argentina just needed someone to focus their anger on and since William had been deployed to the Falklands, he was the obvious target. Unfortunately, the United States has had its own share of effigy and flag burning in various and sundry countries, sadly including right here in America with many a political demonstration.

So don't be upset over this, Ghost, and I also agree that you do a great job in bringing your fellow forumers information on various and sundry topics. Thank you!

Given a choice between a skiing holiday and a Vegas holiday (and I've done both,) I'd chose skiing hands down. Once you are comfortable on skis speeding downhill is thrilling not to mention the gorgeous snow covered mountain scenery you're skiing through. In fact skiing is my favorite sport and I consider it a lot more fun than say tennis or hiking or swimming, a bit like sailing, but better, IMO. And then there's apres ski - hanging out by a roaring fire, comfortably tired from the runs, sipping and snacking and chatting w/ friends/family.
