Apr 29th 2011 7:12PM It isn't so much the dress. If you really look at the picture, the poor girl looks like she partied all night and threw it on. The dress is actually quite lovely, and would look much better on someone who didn't have a cruise full of bags under her eyes, and a hairbrush. I don't know who she is, as I don't keep up much with England's "elite". But she looks tires, stressed, hungover, and pretty much miserable. I would like to hope that she is ill, and that is the reason. Sometimes it is better to look for a reason, instead of just criticizing a look. But to agree with several comments before mine, she looks awful. And looks about 10 years too old for Harry, who I think is a truly terrific kid.
Apr 29th 2011 7:06PM I think Queen Elizabeth has grown more lovely over the years. She looks beautiful here. Some women age gracefully, and she is the one I think of the most when I think of that. God bless her, and William and Kate. This was a wonderful wedding, classy and more understates with elegance than many before. I wish the young couple all the best, and I wish the Queen more of the same.
Feb 28th 2010 6:20PM I live in Ocean Shores, Washington. A couple of years ago, we had an evacuation because of a tsunami caused by an earthquake off the coast of California. I had an early warning because my neighbor across the street was in the reserves and he had a call hours before anyone else. He came over and told me about it and told me I should pack myself and my 2 cats in my pickup and head towards solid ground. I told him no. I wasn't going anywhere. He laughed and told me he had a sixpack under the seat in his boat and if it got bad, I was welcome to both.
Two hours later, 2000 cars were trapped in the 4 mile access to the highway waiting for breaks in traffic to leave the area. An hour after that, when the tsunami warning was called off, 3000 cars were trying to turn around and return home.
The media has portrayed tsunamis as the next community-based trauma, when in reality, the possibility of "killer waves" from an earthquake hundreds or thousands of miles from your homes is nonexistant. The probability is that the tides will rise within 4 to 5 feet, and the biggest wave from over an earthquake 300 miles from your coastal home is less than 12 inches.
This is a reality that I have documented over the last 30 years living in a coastal town that will be one of the first to be decimated if a tidal wave caused by a tsunami will destroy.
Be more down to earth with this whole factor, do some research, be smart about things. These things do actually happen to kill off small coastal towns, but if yours is not one of them, please do not panic. The traffic accidents, heart attacks, etc., are their biggest victims.
Take care and take care of your own.
