Royals have changed the rules. Even if the baby is a girl, one day, she will wear the crown.

Crown in old fashioned monetary terms was 5 shillings but with decimalization became 50 cent/pence. Today its intrinsic value is a lot more. Half a crown was two shillings and six pence commonly called two and six. Those were the days my friend. :w:

Africans are people born in Africa, not just a subset who often claim the 'title' for themselves to the exclusion of those born on Africa's extremities.

"Driving Miss Daisy" A good movie. But when I drive around KNP and I see idiotic behaviour I kind of lose my cool.

Range home on the range where the impala and the buffalo roam. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day.

Apologies to the librettist of the song for my taking the liberty to change deer to impala.
