    I don't know how it is over there, but Ms. Markell is in the news every stinking day here. When I sign in to my computer my home page has 3 or 4 (MINIMUM) stories/articles on her every single day. She's in the "Style" section, the News section, the Gossip/Entertainment section, the Foreign News section, the Good News section. If she picks up a kids ball I'm sure she'll be in the Sports section too. I am soooooo tired of Meagan Markell I could freaking scream. So...

    Is she in the news 24/7 over there or is it just an American thing? Are YOU as tired of hearing/seeing her name as I am?

    What sort of a game is this, looking at a picture of Father Aristotle?

    Well I usually log on to the forum to get away from it.

    She does come up but not with the overkill you seem to be getting :scared:

    After Diana died there was a kind of understanding the press wouldn't intrude so much. Not sure how much of an effect it has today, but our main news events right now are reality tv shows and brexit....

    Goodbye England's rose
    May you ever grow in our hearts
    You were the grace that placed itself
    Where lives were torn apart
    You called out to our country
    And you whispered to those in pain
    Now you belong to heaven
    And the stars spell out your name
    And it seems to me you lived your life
    Like a candle in the wind
    Never fading with the sunset
    When the rain set in
    And your footsteps will always fall here
    Along England's greenest hills
    Your candle's burned out long before
    Your legend ever will
    Loveliness we've lost
    These empty days without your smile
    This torch we'll always carry
    For our nation's golden child
    And even though we try
    The truth brings us to tears
    All our words cannot express
    The joy you brought us through the years
    And it seems to me you lived your life
    Like a candle in the wind
    Never fading with the sunset
    When the rain set in
    And your footsteps will always fall here
    Along England's greenest hills
    Your candle's burned our long before
    Your legend ever will
    Goodbye England's rose
    May you ever grow in our hearts
    You were the grace that placed itself
    Where lives were torn apart
    Goodbye England's rose
    From a country lost without your soul
    Who'll miss the wings of your compassion
    More than you'll ever know
    And it seems to me you lived your life
    Like a candle in the wind
    Never fading with the sunset
    When the rain set in
    And your footsteps will always fall here
    Along England's greenest hills
    Your candle's burned out long before
    Your legend ever will

    Well, I just opened my home page in another tab and a quick run down of my front page has 14, yes 14 different stories about her and/or your Royals as pertaining to her. Everything from What she's wearing to how your Queen has broken old standards/traditions for her to what her and her Husband xmas card means and look like to what she can't eat now that she's a Dutchess to more on what she's wearing...…. ad infinitum.

    Its tedious and boring as hell …… to me anyway. I GUESS there's a market for this tripe since there is so much of it though. Makes me shake my head for real.

    No :lol:. Actually its a news round up sort of thing. Top stories from around the world kinda. Keep meaning to see if there's a way to cut out some of the sources it pulls from or topics but just haven't gotten around to it. I'm not there much anyway but sheesh does this Markle mania go on and on.

    You yanks and your royal obsessions. If you weren't so classless and had a decent bit of history about you, you wouldn't have these problems

    Sadly I agree with you Neil. We as a Nation DO seem a mite obsessed with the British royalty. I can't for the life of me understand it though. To ME (no offense intended) royalty of any kind is outdated, passe and well, just plain silly. Don't get me wrong your Queen seems really cool but a "Queen" or "King" c'mon man lol. The very idea someone was/is "better" than another just because of birth is repugnant to me.
    Yeah, we're a very young Nation and still in our adolescent phase but still ……..

    Well it takes all sorts. She's both as loved and hated over here as much as anywhere.

    You do seemed obsessed with British class though, you plebians. It's why we flog you our tat as antiques, our vastly inflated sterling jewelry, and you love pish like Downton abbey.

    It's odd considering the vast majority of the population loathe the class system in this country.

    Odd here too actually. At least to me. I mean...…. we fought not one but TWO wars with you guys to get away from your class system and "royalty" and yet...…… we seem to faint with delight when a "royal" deems to even notice us ….smh. A clear sign that our country is in decline in my opinion. As you stated earlier, we're a young Nation and we still have to learn from experience the things you Europeans have already learned because of our hubris. The American Exceptionalism thing you know. We still need to go through our Dictatorship phase …… our revolution phase ….. our religious government phase. Sometimes I'm actually glad I'm old and will die before any of that plays out. At least I hope so......
