I have no idols.


I never had an idol. JD Salinger once said he felt it is wrong to name whome he admired unless they were dead, I agree at a certain extent.

I have no idols either.

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadow. If I fail, if I succeed, at least I live as I believe.

No matter what they take from me, they can't take away my dignity.

Sorry, must go, my lighter has run out.

But I guess the core of this topic would be 'What is an idol in your eyes?' It can be looked at differently.

I'm convinced that Phil's on his way out, but that's probably more hope than anything else. "Hope" because I'm in the mood for a nice state funeral, and also because I'd like to see the Queen's attitude to mourning - will she take the Victoria approach, don black garments on a permanent basis, and cloister herself away for her own duration?

I can't see the Queen being a widow for 39 years, myself. Anyway, there's no reason why Phil shouldn't make his 90s. He doesn't have a history of poor health and he seems active enough at the moment. Genetics is on his side too - his mother lived to 86 and his grandmother to 87. In fact, looking through his relatives you can see that most live to very old age as long as no-one assassinated them (as happened to his uncle, his grandfather and two great aunts).

A lovely article about Prince Philip and how, in one part of the world, he is believed to be immortal, the son of an ancient spirit who inhabits a nearby mountain.

"Despite worshipping the prince for half a century, the villagers [...] only learnt recently that his birthday falls on June 10. Ambitious plans are under way to celebrate the occasion this year.

There will be dancing and a feast. Chief Jack Naiva has acquired a Union Jack, which will be raised and saluted. But the celebrations will only really be complete if Prince Philip turns up, say the tribespeople.

"You must tell King Philip that I'm getting old and I want him to come and visit me before I die," said the white-haired chief, who thinks he is about 80. "If he can't come perhaps he could send us something: a Land Rover, bags of rice or a little money"

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow

Cargo cults are the in thing with hacks at the mo then. I read about the John Frum cult on the BBC the other day.

Must be a slow news week what with Harry being posted to Iraq, Britney having a grade 0, Italian prime minister resigning and collosial squid being caught in antarctic waters...

Isn't he also related to Vlad the impaler going back about 14-15 generations?

Not sure, but it's eminently possible. Possibly a clue could be found here.

I found this story although it only indicates that Prince Charles is related doesn't mention Philip though

The article says that Charlie's great-grandmother (Queen Mary) was a descendent of Vlad. Not sure about that, but Queen Mary's grandmother was a daughter of a Transylvanian count.

With someone of his age, you cannot say that he isn't going to die anytime soon, but I think it very unlikely. I'm sure he'll still be here in five years time...

Indeed, everybody is related to everybody in New Pitsligo.

As for everybody being realted to everyone else, we can measure this by the amount to people who claim to have a connection to Charlemagne. There are a good few people in the geneaology circles claiming descent from him. I'm about 42/43 generations down from him.
Being related to everybody does have a downside. I was horrified to find that Princess Diana was one of my very distant cousins.

Anyway. The Duke of Edinburgh is is great health for his age but at 87 he can't have that much more left in him. I think he will be dead by 90 though. Just a hunch.
