Just curious -- was it before or after the [in]famous "interview"? 

I got it around the 14th so that was after I think, 🤷‍♀️

You're right, the interview was aired on March 7th.

The spoof video may of been done earlier, not sure

I remember vividly the morning I've heard on the radio about Diana, Princess of Wales's death. 

 

I couldn't believe it.... My heart went to the "boys", since I also had (and have) 2 boys roughly the same age, especially Prince Harry, who was so young at the time.

 

I was so happy for him when he finally found love and happiness, so much so as his older brother.

Me too! my kids were young at the time and couldn't understand why mum was watching TV all day and crying all day. Such a shock. 

Yes, they both deserve to be happy and good they have both found life partners and have families of their own now. 

 

I remember years ago  when they arranged the charity concert in Diana's memory in Wembley. Loads of famous performers and groups. My husband was working for British Airways at the time and they raffled tickets for the corporate box for the show. We got tickets, full hospitality and, best of all we were just below the Princes, fab seats.

So cool, it must have been quite a fabulous experience 😁

 

If it was in 2007, then you're nearer to Prince William than Kate....😉

No worries, it's only half a year (since Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year in September 2021) 😁

 

We were in TOTAL lockdown this time last year, nobody celebrated Passover, not being allowed to leave our houses more than 50 meter (except for food and meds).

 

DH is cooking the Gefilte fish twice a year -- Passover and Rosh Hashana 🌺

 

This Passover, for the 1st time, being disappointed in the ready made horseradish, he decided to try doing it by himself, and it was a huge success!

Homemade horseradish that I've tasted was always stronger than store bought which we happen to like.  My father in law's could clear your sinuses just by looking at it. Weird, I know.

 

I buy frozen ground fish loaves and cook them for about 1-1/2 hours. Not bad at all. Most Israelis I know cook from scratch, so unlike me...slinking away in shame.

He looks unrecognizable with his hair so neat and not spikey. Always a treat to run into someone famous.

Well, I must be in a positive thinking mode the last couple of weeks.  Over that time I have booked 13 cruises, trying to build up the bookings again after so many cancellations  😮 

 

Four of them due to invite from Cruise Wizard Gary, and this last two today,..... due to my sister wanting 65th birthday celebration with big sister along.  And of course, replenishing our lost bucket list to Australia again.  

 

Guess I figure if I start tossing enough against the wall again....something might stick again!  😉 

We were on a TP cruise with Cruise Wizard Gary in 2017. He set up an island excursion in Bora Bora. We had a blast.

What’s RD#47?

Oh for Pete's sake Renee. He is promoting your governor as the next president. Even *I* can figure that one out. :classic_rolleyes::classic_tongue::classic_biggrin:

I imagine the question about the treats is intended to Graham @grapau27.

 

My former FA son, who is constantly in touch with his colleagues who are still flying, told me that the crews are taken by bus to a hotel and not allowed to leave the room until they fly back... Food is left at the door....

 

A whole new "lay over experience"... and not a fun one at that 😢

He said there are a lot of restrictions. They can’t leave the room without a mask on and they must be worn at all times unless eating, smoking or running. When they were waiting on the hotel bus to pick them up they had to wear masks and it was in an empty parking lot. 😳  I did get one text saying he was heading to dinner. He didn’t say that it would be in his room so I’m not sure. I’ll ask him specifics when he get home tomorrow. Maybe some hotels have different rules?

There are lots of confectionery, alcohol,perfumes and after shaves in the airport terminal.

Barcelona centre LAS Ramblas is only a 25 minute taxi fare 30 Euros from the airport.

Tomorrow Sunday probably only touristy shops open.

A curfew from 10pm-6am

Bars and restaurants only open 7.30am-5pm.

There will be a 6 hour time difference.

Hope Mike has a safe flight.

Graham.

I was thinking along the lines of confectioneries. 😁 I have plenty of perfumes. It turns out it was Palm Sunday so only a few little markets were open. I’m not sure if he went to any. I never asked him for anything so I’m not sure if he went to any. I guessing he didn’t. I didn’t realize they were being that strict over there.

How can restaurants serve dinner?  Dinner service, IIRC , starts about 9PM.

It was way too late for us.

He said right now the restaurants can only serve till 5:00, but they can do take out till 10:00.

For real?  Here’s an example, seen just like this on Primetime viewing on Fox. No edits and good with the FCC. 

 

 

 

Seriously. Of course he has😉

 

Just not happy about it.

I got a speeding ticket headed to pick up KFC that evening.

Full moon tonight so I played with the night mode capability of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The moon was giving off a lot of light but not nearly as much as in the pictures. I’m impressed.

Tim Cook was interviewed in "People" magazine last week and they asked him what his favorite feature was on the iphone. And he responded "Night Mode" on the camera. It does look amazingly awesome! :classic_biggrin:

It’s getting ridiculous.

He needs to come up with a better hash tag. Everytime I see RD#47. I think it's a new version of the R2D2 droid.

 

Not exactly a presidential image. Lol
