    Re: CHIT-CHAT Zone

    See what you mean.
    In that case I belive the Norwegians have an ok relationship with their Royal family.
    I also agree with you that the english way to "be Royal" suits no one...
    (Princess Diana was a major loss in that matter).

      i saw your royals,prins Haakon and Mette-marit also on the tv here,just as a lot of other crown prins and prinsesses.

      Diana was a loss,i think that too,but she didn't fit in Elisabitch royalty standahrt,
      but she had done a lot for the popularity fir the royalty.(but thats what i think)

        That was exactly my thoughts. In my mind her death was a great loss as she would have been the one who could have changed that British royalty a bit...
        For the future of the British monarchy, let us all go straight to Prince William Arthur Philip Louis when his grandmother pass away....

          I myself feel that all "Royalty" should be ended as it is so obsolete (I do apologize if I offend anyone). There is no human difference between "Commoners" and "Royalty". The only true difference is that the royal families are descended from Kings or Queens that overthrew others to obtain land and title.

            NEVER let me see you use that term again. I hope that there are some standards on CVF such that we do not insult each other nor each others' royal families where they exist.
            Exactly what do you know about it all, Thijs?

              I strongly agree with Ivy. Opinions are opinions, and each is allowed their own opinion, however there are proper ways to express these opinions especially on delicate or personal issues. Name calling is not among these proper ways. I feel most of us are guilty to an extent in this name calling especially in regards to some of the comments that were made on the SS Norway thread about Governments, courts and ship breaking. We seemed to forget that all that took place with the Norway was perfectly legal (or mostly legal) in the country she was broken up at. Yet we felt that India, Bangladesh, etc should abide by our rules, laws and business practices. I for one was guilty of this. I do hope that we can have proper opinions voiced in future conversation as this is what makes CVF so unique and enjoyable.

                No complicated explanations to Thijs. Just take your frying pan with you on your next visit and use it!!

                  Re: CHIT-CHAT Zone

                  I have just added photos to my Jersey thread and animals thread.. Since Photobucket changed I had a problem connecting back and forth between them and CV Forum so I haven't been able to do two or three photos on advanced, I have had to do it one at a time, because CV is cancelled everytime I change over and I have to start again. Anyone having photo problems ?

                          But you get to pick who will be your Head of State. Unfortunately you have a "hybrid" system that give the President some power, not just a figure head, like constitutional Kings, or Queens. Regardless, they cost taxpayer's money for upkeep.

                            Not correct maybe,but occasionaly distracting....if it is about the head of my mother-in-law.

                              Trying to restrict today's shipspotting activities to Monaco harbour as I catch up on TV viewing of yesterday's motor racing in advance of today's F1 race! Goodness, it looks as if it was sunnier here in Edinburgh than Monaco yesterday!
