What is throwing a strop?  Sort of like having a cow or pulling a Britney?  ;)  

I'd say he wigged out a little, not-too-discreetly cheating on his very famous and very popular wife.

Sounds like the same thing....yeah, the Princess Diana thing, I'd agree with that, though I suspect there are many sides, generally unkown, to that story.

What I do know is that Princess Diana carried the ancient welsh royal bloodlines so Harry and William really are Welsh Princes. And it's important to remember that GB, prior to recent christianisiation, has a huge history of goddess worship, something I think still sits in the Land - but this might be another thread...... ;D

Hi Wayne - your post appeared while I was replying to Mike..... 8)

I'm not a royalist, but I have to give Charles some credit for sticking to his organic and nature viewpoints, despite the crap hes got for it - takes some courage too....and the global warming issue is slowly catchinghim up.....

Not sure how I'd cope with being king in waiting and never throwing a strop, always being impeccable in the duty, mind-fuck.

 The very idea of a British tough guy is ludicrous.

Thats fighting talk that is..... ;D I'd say come here and say that, but I am not a tough guy ;D

Apart from managing to live in the wilds of Scotland in Kilts during winter, there is the SAS.

I'm not a military supporter, but the idea of 3 guys jumping out of an airplane and only two wearing parachutes  - to build trust - takes a lot of balls.

Hence the newer title, but still with it's difficulties, First Nations.

President Obama recently had a conference with a representative from all the remaining first nation peoples

and he appointed a member of the Cherokee Nation to his White House team as senior policy adviser for Native American affairs - fulfilling an election campaign pledge.

He also appointed an American Indian as director of the Indian Health Service within the Department of Health and Human Services - the first such appointment.

That reminds me -- what happened to the rule about retailers not displaying Christmas stuff until after Thanksgiving?  I saw several stores in October with both Halloween and Christmas sections, and even more stores this month with Christmas items displayed all along. 

Soon it will be spend on everything all year round - not a good thing as it takes the specialness of each festival/time away and further makes it a commercial enterprise - the original meaning of all of them was clan/tribe/family celebrating life (or the ancestors as in Samhain)

Speaking as a non american I can't comment on the commercialisation of Thanksgiving, but it sits closely in original spirit to our Harvest Festival - celebration of the generosity of the Earth (before it became christianised) and sitting just before the slaughter of most animals for food throughout the winter (can't afford to feed what would be eaten later).

If I recall correctly, please let me know if I am wrong, the Native Americans (more modern appelation being 1st Nations) celebrated thanksgiving and actually provided, via their generosity and knowledge of the land, the very means of the pilgrims survival in the first years without which they would have perished.

'Forgotten Founders' by Bruce E. Johanson looks at some very interesting historical developments in the development of the ideas of democracy.....

I know hospital food gets a bad reputation - but the food in our staff canteen is not bad (and very cheap). It is not in the same quality (apart from the fish and chips) as the rest mentioned here, but with the second meal I have in the evening I have put on 1/2 stone (does not seem to get higher) since working here.

It was very useful last year when I was way ill with real flu (ie collpased on floor unable to move) as I hate to think how gaunt I would have become without it (the 1/2 stone).

Just had pork and leek sausages, parsely potatoes, mushy peas and gravy followed by a tub of custard. 2.10. Beats making sandwiches etc to bring in.

E-bay say he currently has no items for sale

Food porn=Kim Kardashian eating a Carl's Jr. salad.

I have been told Nigella Lawson was quite sexy when cooking too. Never saw any of the programmes though.

I agree with Jez,

Though I believe the acting is a little wooden?

a couple of years ago saw a two foot model of the eagle spaceship - I did not dare look at price but I wanted it.

 ??? did not want a huge library stored on the computer so tried deleting library files - Windows did not ask me if I wanted to delete just the library or the actual files from computer and it deleted the lot.... >:(....two days of work dissapeared...... >:(

Anyway managed to set it up so it does not do it again - luckily the computer recognises the discs already backed up so I don't have to do all the typing again - just click the button - so not as bad as my swear words anticipated.

R. Carlos Nakai - Canyon Trilogy
Meditative, beautiful, echo-y flute. It took me some time to get over my embarrassment for liking this - I heard it in too many 'nature' stores to take it seriously - but I'm ready to admit now that this album has become a desert island selection for me. If you're scoffing now, reconsider the album - you might like it.

I have two Nakai albums, including this one - it is meditative, beautiful and echo-y, but despite the 'nature' and 'new age' connotations it is really neither as it is traditional flute music. Imagine playing a flute in the canyons of the four corners area......

I was tempted and could not resist despite my better judgement. It was huge, bigger than I had ever had before, my mouth watered, my belly quivered - I could not say no, nor wait any longer and despite the consequences I reached out.......

.....and had a huge portion of fish and chips with parsley sauce  ;D - sorry no pictures.....but perhaps that is for the best.... :o
