Marie said in her easy to understand Danish: "I've sailed all my life and I love it".

The appropriately attired Joachim talked about the facination of a tall ship, that everything is done manually.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #33, 2010.
Tre Prinser på heden - Three Princess on the moor.
Written by Ken Richter.

The three Princes visited Hjerl Hede open air museum in central Jutland. The museum show details from rural life more than a 100 years or so ago. The museum is 100 years old.
Huge tracts of western Jutland used to be moor beforehand, but in the mid 1800's and also a direct consequence of the defeat in 1864, where Denmark lost so much fertile land, the moor was put under the plough. That is an unglamorous but economically important part of Danish history.

A couple of enthusiatic boys, and a probably no less enthusiatic dad tried driving with a steam locomotive, try riding a væltepeter = velocipede, apparantly also known as penny-farthing. You know, the oldfashioned bikes with a huge front wheel.
They aso tried making pancakes over open fire, have a look at an ox-cart and try their luck as black smiths.
They also had a closer look at the animals that are still present at the remaining moor. I.e. holding an adder and a lizard.
The smith required some help from a couple of boys, Nikolai and Felix and started out by stating: "You look like a couple of rascals". "They are", agreed Joachim on the spot.
Here they helped the smith at the anvil, operating the big bellow and the result was a small skinning knife as used by the Greenlanders, which the boys got home with them as a present. Another present was a horse shoe made from copper.
Felix was cracking up when the way too big bowler worn by the smith was placed on and nearly over his head. A luck he's got ears! (*)

Joachim said afterwards: "The boys have swallowed it all up (the experience) and they have seen that it was possible to have fun more than a 100 years ago, where there wasn't so much modern technology.
The children take it in in a completely different way, when they see it in real life. It's completely different from a modern amusement park where everything have to be bigger and wilder".

- And this concludes the summaries for this week.

(*) Many navere = travelling artisans, still wear the traditional clothing associated with their guilds. In this case a bowler hat.

Joachim as patron for the Asthma Allergy Association.
I looked through the threads and there is no mentioning of Joachim being an allergic, which he is and as such he is patron of Astma og Allergi Forbundet = the Asthma and Allegy Association.

From my archive:

Excerpts from article from the AsthmaAllergy Association’s member magazine.

Prince Joachim is patron of that association. The article mostly refer to a service called Pollen Count of the Day, which in DK is announced along with the weather on the two main networks.

Dagens pollental gør mit liv nemmere – The Pollen Count of the day makes my life easier. - In the pollen season of course.
Written by Stine Ramlyng.

Q: When did you become allergic to pollen?
- “I was nine or ten when I felt something for the first time. The eyes itched and I just scratched. But I couldn’t understand why it continued and had a test done. In that way I found out that I was allergic to grass and birch and a little bit towards furry creatures. I definitely respond to cats. It goes straight to the breathing if I’m near especially longhaired cats. In theory I should also be allergic to horses and dogs but I feel nothing”.

Q: How do you use the Pollen Count of the Day?
- “I follow the Pollen Count of the Day carefully, when it’s season for grass and birch. If the number is too high I know I have to take my precautions like for example take preventive medicine. My experience with the Pollen Count of the Day has taught me that if the air is dry and it blows from the east and it at the same time is high season for birch then we in the area of Copenhagen get all the Swedish birch right in the head. On the other hand I have the advantage that there isn’t much birch west of Schackenborg. And as the wind usually blows from the west down there I’ve found out that this is the place to be when the count for birch is high. But grass is over the country, so I’ll never quite get away from that……”.

Q: In what situation have the Pollen Count of the Day been of particular use to you? (*)
- “In connection with my wedding last year I was particularly attentive of the Pollen Count of the Day. Spring had come a bit early and it was high season for birch and grass. And then I thought: - its one thing I’m standing there with tears in my eyes and that always look good at a wedding. But if I stand there with swollen eyes, how smart/good is that going to look. – So I kept myself well informed about the weather and the Pollen Count of the Day”.

Q: What did you do to avoid the swollen eyes?
- “I stayed – as far as possible – inside for the last couple of days before the wedding. Apart from that I have a pragmatic doctor what pills I could take a few extra of to avoid the worst symptoms. At the same time it was also important that I didn’t take some of the strong pills that makes you sleepy. So there were definitely some risks and consequences I had to take into consideration prior to the wedding. Because it would be terrible if I suddenly lay there. I didn’t think that was somehow the day to do that”.

Q: You are a farmer. How much are you out in the fields during pollen season?
- “Less than I would like to be but I’m out there, because it’s the best place to get a sense of whether the crop is thriving and to see that everything is going well. Therefore it’s very important for me to be able to go out there, even though it’s pollen season. But if it’s high season and the wind is blowing from heavily, then I stay away. I put my health before the crop”.

Q: What symptoms do you get when the level for birch and grass is too high?
- “That varies. But I can get everything from swollen eyes, troubled breathing, itching in the eyes to a running nose. And then I know I have to take my medicine against allergy and if it isn’t within reach a certainly shall not pop outside and run half a marathon and strain the breathing.
If I have forgotten to take my medication and I get an overdose of grass, then there can be five sneezed on top of each other, completely without warning. And apart from that hurting and know I have to go out and rinse my nose (with water) or it’ll just continue. That can be really irritating”.

Q: Does it irritate you to be allergic to pollen?
- “Yes, it’s an irritant. Like for example if have forgotten my handkerchief and only have a kitchen roll nearby. Then you during half a forenoon will have all the skin under your nose worn off. So I have learned that when we approach the season I might just as well have soft tissues ready. There will be plenty of need for them.
But apart from that I live with the allergy because I know my symptoms and through the Pollen Count of the Day know when they come”.

Q. “What is your worst experience with the pollen allergy?
- “I had a single asthma attack at thirteen or fourteen, when I went to boarding school, I moved a lawn which had become a bit too long and that went straight at the breathing (**). I got problems breathing and was if my throat twisted. It was bad. I couldn’t lie down because that only made it worse, so I sat upright and slept. It was a very unpleasant experience.
Four years after my first asthma attack I got one more, when I was in Australia after having moved a lawn”.

Q: Were you scared?
- “Yes, I was a bit scared, because it was a considerable stronger attack than the one I experienced four years earlier. It was at the end of the day and the chemists were closed. Apart from that there were 30 kilometres to the nearest chemist, so it was extra unpleasant to know that I couldn’t get any medicine. Again I had to sit upright and sleep. The next day it had settled down and then I could go to the chemist and buy some medication. The most unpleasant thing is that you can’t breathe”.

Q: What have you done when you have had an asthma attack?
- “I can remember that at the boarding school there was some kind of readiness. It was something about putting the snout down some mixture in a warm solution and then breathe thoroughly.
My own experience is that if it’s really bad it’s really about getting a lot of moist air down the nose and lungs, then things very quickly settle down again.
But I’ve also learned the hard way that if the allergy is bad, then apart form washing the hands often, rinse the eyes with water. The hard way is to sniff water up trough the nose. It’s unpleasant but it works quickly. And water you can get practically everywhere. At least in Denmark.

Q: Have you allergy towards pollen limited you in any way?
- “Not really, because I think I have learned to take my precautions – and also to take preventive medication, like if I have to go to a animal auction/show (***) during high season for pollen. But as a hunter hunting in the spring in a birch wood or birch shrubbery, it certainly is sometimes a choice between the stag or yourself….”.

Q: Because you yourself have allergy your children automatically also have a greater risk of contracting allergy. What thoughts do you have on that?
- “Just from the consideration that allergy is getting more and more common and that we today is more aware of it, I keep an eye on my sons, when the season is coming. But fortunately there have been no signs of anything yet”.

- Billed Bladet also deals with this interview and adds the late Queen Ingrid suffered from hay fever and Queen Margrethe was committed to hospital in 1996, with an acute case of allergic attack.

(*) Prince Joachim is naturally being addressed with the formal you.

(**) Not affected the breathing. Joachim is during this interview using a number of more “youthful” rather than correct expressions.

(***) Don’t know the word. Those who live in the countryside will be familiar with this sort of gathering were animals are displayed and auctioned.

If I remember correctly these four girls are high school students, who have developed a simple and quick way to test a drink for drugs. The aim being to prevent drugrape.
The concept is currently being developed but if it turns out to be as cheap and simple to use as the initial tests point to, it will really be a useful thing.
