LOL!!! I love that post! Thank you BeatrixFan..

When I was there three years ago for the Jubilee, many of them did not seem shy about using colorful metaphor. Some of the slang I picked up from watching Eastenders.

No, only that there was lots of laughter, and she was quite amused by Ozzy's admiration of her...décolletage. I guess she was in no danger of an unwanted advance...Sharon was on hand! A good time was had by all.

Oh, I know that. :)

Did you all the read about Prince Charles picking up a medicine at one of his visits and asking what it was only to be told it was used to help....men's enhancements in bed?

Apparently he and the staff got a big kick out of it..

I cannot believe how relaxed he has been these past few months. The transformation is mesmerizing..for the first time in a very long time, he looks genuinely happy.

Come to think of it, Ozzy's height comes right to her decolletage so he got a good view.

He is much more relaxed. It is a much better image of him.

Monarchies set to Collapse

http://news.softpedia.com/news/A-Spa...sk-10204.shtml

This article scares me but when I read it, it sounds like the guy has no idea what he is talking about. In a sense, I can understand the collapse of mainland europes monarchies because they have lost so much tradition and royal grandeur that they act like republics. But, they dont seem anywhere near collapse, Norway does seem in danger of a huge political debate emboiling the country on whether to retain the monarchy in the next few years though.

Well, when people start on about what a waste of space a monarchy is, I usually remind them about the United Nations list of countries with the highest quality of life. Year after year, more than half of the top five, top ten, and top fifteen countries are constitutional monarchies.

As long as there's one man alive to say, "You are my King/Queen" then Monarchy exists.

If I am not mistaken, there is still a strong Anti-Monarchy movement in Australia also. Perhaps the Australians on the board could speak about this.

It is not so much anti-monarchy but pro-republic.

At the moment it is on the back burner and will stay there as long as John Howard is PM as he is a staunch monarchist.

These days we hear a lot about Mary of Denmark, as she was an Australian before her marriage.

No-one is really against the Brits having a monarchy but do question whether or not the British monarch should also be ours.

Personally I love the Queen and the RF and would hate to live in a republic but if the majority of people in a majority of states vote that way in a referendum at some time in the future then I will have to get used to it.

I can kinda understand that. I like the British Royal Family too but if we started to have a King and Queen of the United States, it would feel kinda weird!

Thanks for the article, princejohnny. He's talking about the lack of blue blood in the royal houses these days. I can kinda understand him. Prince Charles said before he married that he thought he ought to marry a princess because she would know what she was getting into but he really wanted to marry a nice English girl. He ended up marrying the nice English girls.

But I think its tougher for non-royal brides to be accepted within the royal family.

Countries with monarcys also have high tourism. Isn't that what keeps Englands economy up? If you think about it, the reason people visit England is mainly for the palaces, royal museums, changing of the guards, and such.

In the referendum a few years ago a majority of people in EVERY Australian state voted to reject the proposed change. Four reasons: disagreement with how a replacement Head of State would be elected/appointed; the fear of major constitutional change (which Australians have traditionally rejected); satisfaction with the status quo ("if it ain't broke, don't fix it"); and resentment by "average" people of the cultural elite's claim that the Monarchy denied us our own "identity" and their patronising and condescending attitude of "we know what's best for you".
