Thanks, Valberg.

A drotkvad, that's a medieval word. Meaning something like a poetic praise of you liege. (Lord/master/sovereign).
QMII will have appreciated the gesture, no doubt.

And now for PH, he was out with the boys again.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #21, 2014.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

He and other old boys went hunting on the island of Bornholm.
Six of them in fact and they sailed onboard Dannebrog to Bornholm. (*)
And as usual they started with some male banter. Some of the gentlemen are mature, and well rounded - some would say ripe...
PH started: "Tonight we can eat the brains of the animals. But you won't dare eat brain"?
Christan Kjær (perhaps the most ripe of the gentlemen) retorted: "I dare, but surely you need it more than the rest of us".

They were not expecting large game on this deerhunt, Christian Kjær again: "It's after all not the weight that matters". Leading to an immediate remark from Peter Zobel another of the gentlemen: "Says you", and pointed at the belly of Christian Kjær.
Christian Kjær was very merry, being newlywed: "It's nice to be a newly wed, but it's after all not something new to me, I've tried it three times. After twenty years of marriage I always end up being replaced".

They had a great time, but only managed to shoot two animals, oh well. PH: "I saw 27 animals, but didn't shoot any. They were too small".
So it was PH who secured the dinner in the evening. Apparantly he knows a local suppplier of fresh fish, and he obtained some, which he the (conscript) cook onboard Dannebrog had bought at a "secret place".
"I'm crazy about fish. As an ex-French I eat more fish than many Danes. And these are very fresh. We are going to have them tonight and tomorrow".

- All this to give you an idea of how PH is enjoying his semi-retirement. Because articles like these are regularly featured in BB, I just rarely summarize them because I don't think they are considered that interesting.

(*) Danneborg is every year around this time in its shakedown phase, where the conscript crew are gaining their sealegs for the upcoming summer cruises.
And often PH hitch a ride. - After all the ship has to sail somewhere...

A little funny thing about Bishop Elof Westergaard: He is the son-in-law of a former Churchminister A.O. Andersen, who I´ve known since my childhood :)

Thanks, Iceflower

Møllerup Gods = Large farm/small manor is located in one of the most idyllic little spots in DK.
An hour and a half comfortable bicycle ride from where we live BTW - or twenty minutes if you are a teenage boy on a scooter...

This area, Mols, is famous or infamous for the Mols-stories taking place there. Some of the stories going back to the 17-1600's and ridiculing the locals for being incredibly stupid.
Examle: There was a stork trampling around on a field ruining some delicate crops. The locals discussed what to do and agreed on chasing the bird away.
But hey! One of the brighter locals pointed out: if one of us walk into the field, he will also trample down some of the crops and that would somehow defeat the point.
Hmm, what to do? Then the local genius came up with an idea: If four of them carry him on a stretcher, then he won't be trampling down the crop and he can get to the bird and chase it away without his feet touching the ground.
And thus they succeeded in chasing away the bird...

- This story, which we learned about in school BTW, originates back from the early 1700's.

I guess most countries have similar stories about a particular part of the country where the locals are less bright than elsewhere.
They are akin to the French stories about the stupid Belgians.

Muhler ,
What do you think of the interview Prince Henrik gave in french.
I saw it on place Royale , and he sad that it is terrible being less than his wife.
He said could you imagine King Philippe and Princess Mathilde ?

The interviewer said but in England.... but England is an island.....
There was a lot of bitterness ..

Haven't seen that interview.

But as for his wish about becoming king, he can forget all about it!

The politicians has said no, and the people say no as well, so he just has to live with it.
And my personal comment to that would simply be: "Grow up, PH"!

A gallery of PH unveiling a bronze sculpture in the town of Gråsten, next to the manor.
Looks Africa inspired to me.
