Pigs are clean animals that normally don't smell. It's the way they are kept at many farms that is so dirty. But not the animals themselves.

Piggies have to wallow, as they don't have the capacity to sweat. For this reason, they appear dirty.

I know pigs themselves are clean animals, and they do not smell! But on a hot day, with the school bus windows open, their pigsty, and uh, their droppings smell a little ripe...

Charles is ever growing in my estimation.

Here in East Lothian (east of Edinburgh) there is a similar free range pig farm (Gloucester Old Spot pigs). It's very messy, but the pigs have a whale of a time! The bacon also tastes totally different from "packaged" pork.

Mine too actually. The more I learn about him, the more I admire him.

I love his smile and laugh in these pics. A few pics we could come up with interesting captions for!
He seems to be having a really good time.

He looks so relaxed and at home. It's nice to see that he's enjoying himself.

It is tradition, not law, that is supposed to keep Prince Charles from encouraging charities? Is he the main benefactor behind these charities or just one of many?

Prince Charles doesn't benefit financially from any of these charities. For example the projects supported in the North West of England (where I live) by the North West Development Board (now abolished by the Govt) were in support of govt policies to help poorly managed schools in poor areas by providing links to local businesses and mentors. He doesn't financially benefit from any of this. In any case all his sending of letters to the govt etc can all be seen as an extension of the monarch's right and duty under the British constitution to "advise and warn" the government. The Queen does this orally in her private regular meetings with the Prime Minister and other Govt ministers, Charles does it by letter.

These yellow chanterelle mushrooms are quite delicious. Hope the Balmoral kitchen staff applauded Charles for his efforts.
