@contrex,
They're not having our extra day off though. Some things are worth fighting for.

Funny follow up line, Snood!

I use to like Trump a lot...especially when he told Rosie O'Donnell off. But lately he has been acting like a chump (especially with the birther bullshit).

I never even looked in on the show, so can't give an opinion. I've soured on the Reality stuff after Adam Lambert lost on American Idol.

I do, however, love So You Think You Can Dance...and highly recommend it. In auditions right now; coming on soon.

There is no evidence that "the Yanks" love the royal family in significant numbers. There's just a vocal minority whom the press hunt down whenever the subject comes up. If one subtracts the ex-pats from that bunch, there's even less reason to assume that "the Yanks" love the royal family.

I see that Setanta is sufficiently prickled by the term "Yank" to enclose it in I'm-so-up-myself sniffy quotes. Must be a Yank.

I see Contrex wishes he had a tool to irritate "Yanks." Sad case, really.

One of the reasons that there are so many brain dead folks, Frank. You know, those people who can't face the truth.

@Setanta,
Close enough Malvolio, and you weren't complaining when we were talking about Liz's undercrackers.

@izzythepush,
No, not even close at all. Is that best shot you've got in your pathetic quiver? I have no idea what you mean by undercrackers--i assume it's some sort of witless slang from your benighted little island. It's really sad to see how desparate you are to pick a fight with me.

@Walter Hinteler,
This reminds me of the 1977 Jubilee. There was lots of fanfare then, and a brilliant excuse for a party. The Golden Jubilee was a more subdued affair, the Queen's popularity had gone down following the death of Diana.

This is different in that there's a real sense of history now, the only other monarch to have had a Diamond Jubilee is Victoria, and people are thinking in similar terms.

I'm taking the little boy to Winchester tomorrow for fun and games in the city centre.

@Setanta,
It's not hard to pick a fight with you. You're always pissed off about something.

I think you're just jealous that you're not a queen.

No, there's nothing that important going on here. This subject doesn't anger me. You've conveniently missed my original post. You just wish you were that signiicant, but you're not, because you're just a . . .

his grounds of faith that all that look on him love

Are you sure he isn't? He does seem rather prone to hissy fits.
