I’m Canadian, so not as much of an impact on me. Over here the majority loved the Queen, she was a class act, but Charles… we don’t have the same respect for him.
I think everyone just wishes the crown would skip from Queen Elizabeth to Prince William XD
I grew up watching Betty White in so many different television shows. She was an extremely talented woman who had a wicked sense of humor yet had a very tender heart. She in her own way influenced several generations of women, providing a model for living as an intelligent, tough, kindhearted soul.
I read that too and it would definitely make sense and likely the population would agree as well… but royal procedure states otherwise although Prince Charles is also old now it’s certainly strange that he’d be king in name and would handle at this old age now the affairs which the Queen started doing at younger age. - It’s really a pity. He could always abdicate to William I would think…
I actually don’t think so, a few years ago this might have been the case. Another reason for Charles to be king now is he might not want for his grandchildren what he and even the Queen went through being the heir to the crown from a very young age on.

LORETTA LYNN, THE beloved singer and songwriter whose seven-decade career broke down barriers for women in country music, died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. She was 90. Lynn’s publicist confirmed her death to Rolling Stone .
Rest in Peace, Loretta Lynn. You brought us much happiness!
Oh sad, but she lived long. I only knew about her after watching the movie “The Coal Miner’s Daughter” with Sissy Spacek… I believe it was based on her story how she became a singer.
RIP You can sing now with angels
RIP to Loretta Lynn. So very talented singer-songwriter, and a true country music legend. I remember seeing “Coal Miner’s Daughter” in the movie theater and also remember her guest appearance on “The Muppet Show.” As a child, I thought Loretta being surrounded by all those muppet babies was so funny, but now that I’m an adult, her song “One’s on the Way” hits different. She had 4 children in 4 years, and then twins later on, for a total of 6 children, so she knew what she was talking about when she wrote that song. I also remember her triumphant comeback in 2003/2004 with her “Van Lear Rose” album. She gained a new generation of fans. RIP, Loretta. Your music will always live on. My condolences to her family, her friends and her fans.

Loretta singing “One’s On The Way” on The Muppet Show:
oh my goodness another has passed
Angela Lansbury has passed away at the age of 96. Rest In Peace.
bednobs & broomsticks, and many more!!
I still watch her re-run shows [Murder She Wrote] on one of my regular channel. The old time series were so much better than these junks we have now on regular channels. I also watch Columbo/Magnum PI/Jennie (in the bottle)/Bewitched. I wish those quality programs could come back.
I didn’t know she was already 96 years old. May she REST IN PEACE.
I also love the older shows too. I didn’t realize she was that old too
oh I seen this one so I just had to share
She made [The Beauty and The Beast] so joyful to watch. Her singing and her tea kettle role was so endearing. You made me cry when I saw this bc I completely forgot about this role.
um… I did too!!! and I loved it too
robbie coltrane, passed away today at the age of 72.
You will be missed robbie.
oh my goodness! a loveable character too
There used to be a family at my church with both mom and dad from Scotland; they emigrated from Scotland in the early sixties, I believe. The husband passed away fairly young after suffering a heart attack. When I got to know the wife–a charming woman with piercing blue eyes–I was somewhat aghast to learn what a wretched diet they had as a result of growing up in Scotland during World War II and after.
Everything deep fried in trans fats. Sugar that provided energy more cheaply than fruits, vegetables, and meat. The family joked about pizzas in Scotland being deep fried.
If Robbie Coltrane passed away at age 72 because of issues related to obesity or its often co-morbid diseases diabetes, heart disease, or any kind of cancer, it is especially sad because that kind of death is preventable, at least more within human control than getting struck by lightning or hit by a car.
When it comes to survival and there is limited food supply you eat what you can to survive, since food was also scarce the frying wasn’t perhaps that bad. Imagine how people in Ukraine live where they stayed in war zone… all is smashed every supply broken.
If you read Angela’s Ashes about the writer who grew up in poverty in Irland it’s also mind-numbing. Your diet changes depending on circumstances. Like in Africa many kids had or still have the protruded belly because of one sided diet. As for the people living with stuffed groceries stores you can also see the overindulging with food that isn’t good for your, even the US has the I call it “non food food” in the isle, very unhealthy food yet people buy it cos it’s either sweet or salty, starchy or whatever comfort food.
It would be very wise to learn about food and nutrition in middle school or high school but that could change the shopper’s mind and companies would be loosing those non food food buyers!
Also some people have it in the genes predestined to get sick if they do not limit whatever it would trigger it.
I lived as a 9 yrs old often with canned food heated in hot water in a hotel room where I stayed for 3 months except I had a breakfast with bread rolls and jam… memories after fleeing the Russians as well in 1968… Russia must be reined in!
