Oh, don't be withholding the 'nice dress' clip!!...please share :) I have never heard of this before...I know Mary sometimes struggles with the language, but what was she REALLY trying to say?

I think you may have misunderstood Muhler's post. I think
"what a nice dress"
is what Mary often says to the lovely little flower girls. Muhler was just noting that it was not said this time as two boys presented the flowers

Maybe she needs a stock standard phrase for encountering flower boys...like 'How lovely' or 'Good job' or 'Great name' or 'Nice to meet you' :)

That's correct.

Yes, or "Cool hair". From personal experience I know that boys, and not least teenage boys nowadays pay a lot of attention to their hair.

Thanks, Fairy Tale.
Mary was asked whether her own twins would end up in the registry one day. (It's voluntarily. Those who do have their genes checked and fill out questionaires by researchers. Currently there are more than 80.000 sets of twins in the Danish registy. And because it's so old it attracts international attention. The aim of the Australian registry, for which Mary is also patron, is the same. It has been around since 1980 or so). Mary replied: "Perhaps".

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #4, 2013.
De har et særligt forhold - They have a special relationship.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As we all know by now, Mary attended the 60th jubilee of the Danish Twin Registry and that took place at Southern Danish University in Odense. (*)
Here 150 sets of twins were invited in the age from eighteen to 90 years old. The twins were seated in rows at the auditorium, next to each other and many wearing matching clothes and matching ways to gesticulate. - It must have been an interesting sight....
Well inside, Mary and the others listened for an hour and a half about the research results the Danish Registry has been the basis for.

Mary said afterwards: "I have been surprised as to how wide the research is and how big a significance it has been for everything - from schizophrenic (**), heart deseases and diabetis".

It can get demanding to have twins: "It's lovely! Of course it can get a bit hectic, when there are two of the same age. But it's an enormous priviledge to see how the two little ones develope and the special relationship they have together"

Do they already have a special connection with each other?
Mary smiled: "Yes, you experience that clearly. They have many similarities but being fraternal they also have many differencies. They have a special relationship and it's a gift to wittness".

Will they stick together in thick and thin?
Mary laughed heartily: "I'm sure they will".

About being patron for the Danish and Australien twin registries: "I'm incredibly pleased to be patron and to learn much more about this subject today. That makes me very proud, because the register is a huge contribution and because the knowledge that comes with such a registry has so big a significance for the whole science within health".

Will Vincent and Josephine one day end up in the registry? Mary: "Perhaps".

We are also informed that the earrings Mary wore are from Ole Lynggaard. They are in the shape of a leave in 18 carats gold with 46 brilliants and a big tear shaped cut gem.

(*) Southern Danish University, for which our Marie is patron, is unique among the Danish universities in not having a home town. Instead the various departments are spread out over several towns and cities in the southern part of Denmark.

(**) That word is hard enough to spell in Danish, in English it's a downright challenge!

Yesterday evening, Mary attend the opening ceremony of "Premier Global Conference of the ESC". She also held a almost 10 minutes long and very impassioned speech IMO.

Picture of Mary arriving : https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.n...77355778_n.jpg

Video of her arriving:


Mary's entire speech:

A funny little note: Halfway in the speech Mary wishes all welcome and says she hopes they will find some time to experience a little bit of Denmark. She then reveals that spring is her favorite season of the year ... then she smiles and adds .. but we are not so lucky today. And she is absolutely right, it rained from morning to evening yesterday and we got as much rain on that one day that we usually tend to get in an entire month

Thanks, Roskilde

You bet! We had 61 mm over here that day. We almost swam home from work.

A worthy cause that deserves attention.

Oh, probably that the torch actually did light up as on cue.

They will indeed experience Nordic nights. Dusk is setting in at 22.30 at this time of year. It will be dark only a little before 23.00.

ADDED: In case anyone should be wondering, the tune the drummers and fifers from the Tivoli Guard is playing is: København = Copenhagen.

you met the challenge well with the most difficult word in your list: 'schizophrenia' is the name of the disease and a 'schizophrenic' is someone who suffers from this terrible condition. 'Disease' and 'diabetes' are two words that no one likes so don't worry about them. Thank you as always for the translation

Yes, Mary asks the light in the torch to turn on and in the same second.. it turns on. . You know, our Crown Princess is clever and can many things and to conjure is one of them

BB has a long interview with Mary this week, where she is talking about her work for Women Deliver.
Most of it is already known from interviews but there are a couple of questions of interest.

Jeg bruger mit hjerte - I use my heart/I follow my heart.
Interviewer: Ulrik Ulriksen.
Billed Bladet #27, 2013. (Yes, I always write the magazine and issue, to make it easier for me to go back in my archive and find it and naturally also as a curtesy to the magazine. - In case you were wondering).

Q: Where does you commitment for the cause originally stem from?
M: "My commitment stems from a meeting with a female obstrititian, gynocolgist, from Chad in Africa. That experience has stuck with me and I've been thinking about it ever since.
The female doctor said to me that when a woman in Chad is getting pregnant, she has one foot in the grave. Ever since I've been thinking: - How come that a woman today has to risk her life by giving life. We do know what it takes for the woman to survive. It's relatively simple and uncomplicated solutions which can be very efficient. But there has to be a will from top to bottom and the other way around for it to fall into place".

Q: You have broken through with great effect already on your first big Women First conference. How are you about obviously being one of the big profiles among the many fantastic strong and wellknown women?
M: "That's difficult answer. It's my firt time at such a highly profiled conference and it's the first time I've been with so many strong women who for so long time have worked on putting focus on women's rights.
I'm very glad to have had this opportunity to use my voice in this way. I think I can contribute with another angle because I see the whole thing with new eyes. I see after all the problems with my eyes and my background and use the knowledge I have and from that I may come up with new ideas. Or at least I feel I can contribute with something.
But I was very nervous before the conference and before I had to go on stage in the final panel-discussion with so great accomplished women as New Zealands former prime minister Hele Clark, Finlands ex-president Tarja Halonen and the African Theo Sowa.
The profile I have now is something I've been building on since I heard the words which the female doctor said to me in Chad years back. It's something I've been working on for seven years now or something like that. It's been a slow process, but I'm pleased with where I am now and with what I can deliver at various levels".

- An interesting insight into the background, eh?
And in translating what Mary said I noticed that she used a number of phrases, that are common in English, but which she has clearly translated to Danish. Which actually made it easier to translate what she said into English. - Confused?

Thank you, Dazzling.

The name comes from the fact that King Frederik VI in 1814 signed a law ensuring that all Danish children would get free schooling. It was the beginning of Folkeskolen = the state public school.

Beforehand schooling took place on a local level, homeschooling, by private tutors or in special "latin schools" for talented children spotted by the local clergy, nobillity or magistrates.
And it was predominantly reserved for boys. Meaning that a large percentage of the population, mainly the rural female population, recieved little if any schooling.

Things didn't change over night of course. Teachers were hard to come by and those who taught were badly paid, more often than not less than competent and often the lections were focused almost solely on learning the "Kattekismus" = basic Christian values and rules. Because this was also about ensuring that the children would grow up to be good Christians.

However, by mid 1800's Denmark, Sweden and the US mid-west (very much because immigrants brought the policy of public schooling with them) had an almost 100 % litteracy rate. Defined by almost 100 % of all children going to school and leaving with at least basic skills in reading, writing and arithmetics.
