I am a die hard fan of Coronation Street. Everyday at 7:30 on CBC. One of the greatest shows ever. The only bad thing is that we are several months behind Britian. Right now Katie just killed her Dad Tommy and they just arrested Martin Platt. I did not expect this story line. I thought Katie was gonna have her baby and try a relationship with martin. I also love Doctor Who. Cant wait till it comes back. And the only news I trust is BBC. I can understand the Mancunian accent perfectly but I have a hard time understanding the Cockney and southern accents sometimes. Camillas hat would have been perfect if it werent for that spiral shrapnel sticking out.

I hear a clip of her voice -- I do think that her voice is a very stong point for her. Not what I would've imagined by looking at her. Not shrill, very comforting and she seems to have an even tone when she speaks.

Good for her.

Camilla has been a horsewomen her whole life - it builds very strong legs - hence no flab there.

Well, I've heard that Jesus can turn gay people straight, but I had no idea that Camilla had the same effect.

I don't mean flashy & when I say BIGSHOW. I mean that this is a Very Very Very Important Trip for both. Representing Their country here in America. It is ok when they are in their own element( other royal dinners ) or Ribbon cutting cermonies, etc..... But this is something Bigger. It is like comparing a Regional Championship to the Olympics.

That is what I mean. I know that they aren't flashy,

All from AP
Much better outfit. Well except for the Big BUG on her jacket:p I see that someone has done their homework & probably got the hint from that Rag The New York Post.

OK panther, now I understand you. Thanks for explaining. :)

Actually I just saw that clip of Camilla speaking and she sounds EXACTLY what I thought she'd sound like - deep and husky.

After all, Camilla is one of the sexy Shands! Sexiness is in their veins, the combinations of the genes from father family and mother family. It is said that Annable and Laura have similar sounds. Just make men feel thrilled.I think people who meet Camilla will really find her pretty, attractive, and glamour.

For those of you with CNN.

Larry King Live just had a whole hour devoted to their trip with Joan Collins (the one and only Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan Dexter), Joan Rivers, Hugo Vickers, etc.

It will be repeated at 11:00 pm CST, 12 pm ET, and I am not sure when overseas.

That was one of my least favorite Larry Kings on the Royals. It was a bit boring, way off topic sometimes, and the people kept saying things that didnt make sense. Didnt learn much and felt like I lost an hour.

I am glad that Charles helped her down the embankment(sp) trying to walk down that loose gravel hill in heels is dangerous. & think Charles finally caughton & helped her out. Yeah, he is suppose to walk in front but, jesus, HELPE A GIRL OUT will yeah. It is after all the gentlemen thing to do. all we would need to have her roll down the hill & break a hip or someting.

Yeah, I caught the tail end of it. Joan Rivers was the biggest Comic Bashing the Royals back in the 80's 90's. She had a showl HBO special from England. I mean that she took no prisioners. & everyone knows how mean Joan can be.

But, I loved how they were still trying to Build it up here. Yes, I think that the trip ( barring any major errors or anything short of Charles knocking off the President) this trip in their eyes & their PR people & all the other spin doctors out there will say that massive success.

I think the trip will be a success for them & for the 19% of the public that actually really truly cares about it. The Truth is that people may be courious(sp) like stopping to look at a accident. But, that doesn't mean that we are all giddy as a school girl.

But, Joan needs to stop with the plastic surgeies already. Good God she looks awful. that goes for both Joans. Completly fake & stiff like

One thing I would like to point out as I am watching Larry King, is that any poll taken in the U.S. usually includes only about a 1,000 people.

Now mathmatically and statistically speaking, there is no way in heck these represent a nation of almost 300 million people..

That is, and I have said it before, polls are useless entities. They represent nothing in this country.

C'mon..think about it...how can 1,000 people even represent a city of 2 million or so in this country from a polling perspective?

It drives me crazy when they say these things.

do not know if you saw this on american tv but on the bbc news they showed charles and camilla meeting members of the public in New orleans and one woman was looking with total adoration at charles when he was nearby and she asked can I give you a kiss, he bent towards her and she held his face gently with one hand and kissed his cheek and he was all smiles and kindness.

Saw him in NY at a cocktailparty surrounded by 3 longhaired blondes, they looked from behind like triplets and I imagine without knowing him that he enjoyed the NO moment more.
