    summoned Camilla and told her Charles would be divorcing her "without a penny", and that she is a drunken disgrace. Camilla was demanding $380 million to keep her mouth shut about dirty little family secrets. Will the throne still go to Charles, or does the Queen believe that William and Catherine should be the nominees? The Queen is... show more
    summoned Camilla and told her Charles would be divorcing her "without a penny", and that she is a drunken disgrace. Camilla was demanding $380 million to keep her mouth shut about dirty little family secrets. Will the throne still go to Charles, or does the Queen believe that William and Catherine should be the nominees? The Queen is said to be also unhappy with Catherine, because she still acts too much like a commoner, wears her hair too long, and refuses to put fish weights in her skirts. What a dilemma to face when one is 88! What do the people in the U.K. think?

  • I have a serious situation that I'm going to be facing soon. I befriended a woman (the sister of another?

    friend). The woman was widowed at 36, and she became very depressed and ended up as an alcoholic. As a result, her siblings rejected her and she has been unable to work steadily due to her depression. She survives by reason of her family's having "old money" from oil, property, investments, etc. She put both of her children through college, she went through alcohol detox and has been sober since 2007. Because of her past drinking, however, she is the embarrassment of the family, and her children were also ashamed of her. Her daughter, in particular, has totally estranged herself from her mother. The daughter inherited a lot of precious jewelry and valuable items when the grandmother died, and she also thought she was entitled to a large monetary settlement. It was explained to her that the money from the grandparents went to her mother and the mother's siblings, not directly to grandchildren. Her comment was, "Oh, so my mother has to die before I get anything. Hmmm." During this past year, her mother has become quite ill (possibly terminal). She rewrote her will, paid off her son's final college debt and is preparing herself to die. She is 53 and the daughter is 28. The daughter hasn't seen her in eight months, and claims that her mother is only faking illness to get attention. My personal opinion is that the woman is dying of a broken heart. Her daughter found out that her mother has changed the terms of her will and some insurance policies that would have been p.o.d.'s, and she (the daughter) will not immediately get a huge amount of money. Since I am virtually the only person who is her mother's friend, she is now claiming that I have unduly influenced her mother, that I have secretly been skimming money out of her mother's accounts, and that I am taking advantage of her mother's "fragile mental state". She has put out the word to everyone that she is going to sue me for everything I have the minute her mother dies, and that she will "destroy me". I'm 75 years old, I'm physically disabled, I live on a fixed income, and I don't have access to any of her mother's money. Her mother keeps a large amount of cash in a safe in her closet as well as having bank accounts. Her daughter claims I am systematically stealing by begging the mother for loans. I have never done this, because it's not my money and I get by all right just as I am. I have no way to prove my innocence, and I hate to break off my friendship with this poor woman. How can I protect myself, besides hiring an attorney (which I'm going to have to do).

  • Has anyone been treated for a severe cystocele, and if so, what method was used?used?

    It's my understanding that mesh was previously used during surgeries, and now that has been discontinued because it caused infections and sometimes permanent damage. Kegel exercises are ineffective at this stage, and I think surgery is my only option. I just wonder what to expect.

    My cardiologist prescribed a certain medication for my particular condition, and Aetna is attempting to force me to take a generic, cheaper med. (There isn't a generic for the prescribed one). They're also assigning me a "prevention specialist" nurse who is supposed to help me learn exercises and a diet that will supposedly wean me off most, if not all, my meds. I'm wondering if this is the norm for what's coming with the Affordable Healthcare Plan. I'm 75, I already exercise, have been through cardiac rehab, and I follow a cardiac diet. I feel like Big Brother is watching me.

    countries besides the U.K. (Sweden, Denmark, Luxembourg, Spain, etc.) to get a flavor for the way the people feel toward their royalty. In those countries, the people seem much more affectionate and closer toward their kings/queens than the British do toward the British monarchy, there is none of the morbid curiosity over pregnancies and the paparazzi don't follow the royals around. . Rather, royal christenings are celebrated by the entire communities in their churches and the public is invited. Is it because the other royal families present themselves to be more "human" and warmer toward their subjects? They don't seem to mind being touched and loved by their countrymen. I would think their standing in their countries is just as regal as that of Queen Elizabeth. Maybe it's because their countries aren't as wealthy and don't have all of the "trappings" of multiple palaces, crowns, royal coaches, etc.

  • We are planning to visit St. Croix next year, and we're looking for a reasonable hotel that is clean.?

    The only resort I know about is the Buccaneer, and prices start at well over $300 a night. We just want something that is clean and safe--not luxurious. If anyone has been there, please give me some names so I can look them up. I would prefer something that is family-owned, if possible.

    Since it's known that Duchess Kate and her sister, Pippa Middleton, don't care for Princess Beatrice (e.g. they refused to let her sit with them a style show, and Kate "forgot" to tell Beatrice about the dress code at a skating event, leaving her humiliated and in tears), and Prince Andrew complained to the Queen that his... show more

Also, would Princess Beatrice worn that ridiculous hat to William and Kate's wedding as a form of retaliation, in order to draw attention from the bride (which it did)?

    I have a friend whose granddaughter has this terrible condition. Her skin looks like fish scales, alternating with huge boils. Her hands and feet are so swollen, she can no longer work (she is 21). It has affected her spine, and she has to use a TNS unit constantly. She has been told there is a medication for the condition, but one injection costs $5,000, not covered by insurance. Does anyone know of a person who suffers with this, and what they have done for it? This girl is presently seeing a rheumatologist as well as a dermatologist. They have told her it is an immune system disorder, similar to lupus. They're not giving her much hope for improvement, much less a cure.

    and the dr. didn't like what he saw. They then did a sonogram, and found some precancerous "calcification". I'm to go next Monday and have a needle biopsy. I will be lying prone on a table with my breast "hanging through a hole in the table" so tissue can be extracted. They will then insert a metal "tattoo" to mark the area. Has anyone has this done, and what is the recovery time for this procedure? I have to be off all medications (blood thinners) for at least four days beforehand and I will be taking antibiotics afterward to prevent infection. I'm 74, have a heart condition, and passed menopause a long time ago. My daughter is a breast cancer survivor, so I'm hoping this is not what I'm facing.

    The Queen yesterday issued an order that all "commoner" members of the royal family (Camilla, Kate, and Sophie--Prince Edward's wife)--all have to curtsy to "blood royals" both in public and private. Princess Anne--The Princess Royal--seems especially disdainful of them, and especially toward Camilla. Reportedly, she left Camilla standing out in a cold rain until she decided to show up late to an engagement, and Camilla couldn't enter the place until Anne did. She also repeatedly called Princess Diana "The Dope", because Charles made fun of her first husband, Peter Phillips. He called Phillips "Foggy" due to his not being too bright. Reportedly, because Anne has always been known as "The Plain Princess", she highly resents the attractive members of the royal family. She hasn't been at all warm toward Kate, and it angers her that Camilla and Kate get along well. She has demanded that her elevated status as a "blood royal" be deferred to at all times, in spite of the fact that she declined to give her own children royal titles.
