:scared0015: were you there...you know why I made this as a thread?? coz this week she was in New York again, addressing the United Nations, again...her second Speech to them...half a century later :laugh:

Here she was back again this week http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-MlHTgnA3o ummm...anyone else wonder where Prince Philip has got to....? You know he is a lot older then her, and I've had fears for a while his health is ailing somewhat...I heard it was extremely hot in New York this past week...I hope nothing is wrong...ohh...he's sat in the Audience....thats...most odd.

I turn 63 soon, so I could have been there. I do recall seeing it on TV though.

There was coverage of the recent speech at the UN too.

As for the temps, what can I say? It was 15 degrees hotter in New York that day than it was where I live in Louisiana.:scared0015:

:laugh: you might be our most mature patron :w00t:

I have to say MMA is a big Hit in the 60-90 category, more so with women I find...but you'd be suprised...my Nan is 86...and she likes MMA :happydancing:


I wonder if the Queen likes MMA :ninja: She likes Horse Racing you know, infact she breeds horses for races.

Now in Ancient times, it was the Nobility and the wealthy that would host competitions in combat sports, they wouldnt directly dictate, obviously...just like I dont suppose the Queen herself actually works every day with her Horses...but she owns the stable :cool:

Do you know that two days ago we passed the start date for an old festival of Roman Games for Appolo :huh: (that might be slightly before even your time :laugh:) Ludi Appolinares, until the 13th of this month. :punch:
