That's interesting to know, skydragon. I may have to go, my relatives in Inverness have been bugging me about it. I thought you were English.

Lord Bath helps hoist county flag

THE creator of a county flag for Wiltshire hoisted it for the first time at the weekend and is now hoping the people of the county will get behind him in adopting it as their own.

Thanks. I enjoyed reading that article. He seems a very no-nonsense forthright person.

Honour as Camilla joins the Rural

SHE is certainly a dab hand when it comes to flower arranging, having gained a "highly commended" prize at a horticultural show on Royal Deeside last year.

The Duchess of Cornwall has joined a branch of the Scottish Women's Rural Institutes (SWRI) in Royal Deeside.

The Duchess has been active in social issues since she married the Prince of Wales. She has joined organisations help for people who have health problems, or organisation help for animals; and now she follows the royal tradition of the Queen Mother and the Queen to join into women groups.

The Duchess´s patronages
http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/abou...atronages.html

I don´t know the number of women´s groups, but i remember apart from the Scottish Women´s Rural Institutes, that Camilla joins the group of women how support the Calendar Girls, who are fighting against breast cancer.

Tatler Poll

On the list with the ``top 10 most powerful blondes``Camilla came in at sixth place and was referred to as ``a sexy, wholesome gal`` who ``has always been a jolly blonde - more yellow labrador than afghan hound.``
( Chelsey Davy has the second place, Zara Phillips the 25th place)

Hmmh, crazy thing. But better than years ago, as she was "the most ugly/hated woman of the world". But I don´t understand what Chelsy Davy there has to do.

Chelsy Davy was described as ``the new face of royalty``. ( because`` she looked good and partied hard.``)

I guess we all have different tastes! I think Chelsey, while prettyish, is a bit gauche, primarily due to her age. If the relationship lasts it will be interesting to see if she matures into a real beauty.

While Camilla has never been a great beauty, she is vivacious and has a very down-to-earth attractiveness!

I didn't take much notice, perhaps someone could post the article? I think I'd rather be a lovable lab than a posing Afghan, (if I had to choose).

Here is the article, Skydragon. It's focused on Chelsy mostly though. I like what they say about Camilla though. Jolly woman!
