Explain a little about it please...

called BARM BRACK, very popular

That's a great link Grace, thanks very much for that. The
Barm Brack is similar to the Bara Brith I make, same principle.
I will be putting those recipes to good use...:)

Good Afternoon Dear Brighteyes,
I feel dreadful putting you to that trouble, but it really is
very helpful of you and I look forward to receiving the photo.
I did try to pinpoint you and yours....and it was an enjoyable journey! When is the festival btw? I will keep the link so I can check the other photographers also, I was impressed with how
the one I viewed captured the festival so thoroughly.
I too love the description of your Tuxedo greeting you in that manner...don't they say that they know you are on your way home when you are a mile from the house? Such intuition they have.
Our bunch have been enjoying the unaccustomed warmth of the day today, it reached a high of 64F..:) so we had quite a little heatwave going on at one end of the garden, yet at the end near the house, still in shade, everywhere was covered in thick coat of frost, the best of both worlds.
Yes, some daffs are up but the later ones bloom in April...
so it's just the King Alfred which are in full bloom now and the snowdrops....I have vases of daffs in the house too..
Hope you had a good day BE and have an even nicer evening.
Love and Peace.
Good evening Lady El. Big hopes for ManU this evening. Our Hot Times Festival is September 6,7 and 8th. You gave me chills when you asked, I only wish you could be here with us!!!! I truly think you would enjoy every moment. Sounds like your babies are enjoying the sun, I can tell you that anytime we have the sun shining through the windows the babies seem to find that very spot on the floor to sun bath. LOL
Have a wonderful evening and go ManU!!!!!!
Lots of love always.

<quoted text>Not a subject I would talk about whilst her Majesty is unwell,but as thank god she,s on the mend I will answer in my opinion.
Personally her Majesty should stay queen until her last breath,if in very I'll health such as good old king George had a couple of hundred years back we had the prince regent as in Charles as such would take a lot of the responsibility until the time of kingship...I think Charles has some good qualities some don't like him because he's out spoken but arn't we all,I personally think he's to be out spoken with these cretins that run Westminster at times.
I like the young princes and so do the younger generation and two fine young men that have and are serving their country,and again unlike the cowardly politician cretins in Westminster..
A very good day to all ,hope you do we'll tonight El..
Thanks for the answer Kryptia , very much appreciated ... looks like I put my foot in my mouth on this one. I guess I don't understand the British citizen's feeling about the monarchy.

i gotta agree, it Is a question many people "outside" have asked.
i think we tend to think of the Queen more as a "figure head" type person rather than a ruler of such. so many times ive heard others say that this is just another rich family who have managed to hold onto a traditon - simply because of just that - tradition.
so i totally understand where u franko are coming from, its just how some of the outside world tends to view the old ways, ways that we may not understand simply because we dont live the same ones.
we in the US also question our own leader, as many other people do with their own. so nothing new there, its questions that make the world go round, makes changes possible. sometimes for the good and sometimes not so much.
i dont personally believe talking about it is disrespectful, and i definitely didnt see anything that u said point to a wish for the Queen to pass on...
so it really comes down to is this kitchen an "open discussion place" feel free to give ur opinions on any matter or is it not?
lots of "subjects" may feel too sensitive to tackle, and if it is for someone it might be better to skip over that particular one.
i myself have learned it saves a lot of unnecessary grief..
just my opinion - carry on all u good people!
Bora Da!
thank you for your comments.

I think between your post and what Kryptia siad a few posts back, it definityl shows that if you are not living in that society, as an outsider, we are fed a different point of view ...

Here we elect a leader and he is gone in 4 or 8 years. We cannot build the attachment that goes with generations of a family being in a highly respected position and holding to the responsibilities from a young age right until their last days.

Also in these days I think many things are more jaded... whoever was the president of the USA I think was treated with far more respect just 20 years ago.

You must'nt give it another thought Franko....it's completely understandable how it wouldn't be of much interest in Canada.
Yet funnily enough, it was from the Canadian Press that I got the information this morning that the Queen had been released from hospital. Did I ever mention how impressed we were that Prince William and Catherine were so well received on their visit to Canada? Seems to belie your claim of little impact, don 't it?
There is definitly a portion of the Canadian population that still takes their old ties to Britain and the Monarchy very seriously .... so when you see the streets of a city lined with fans waving at the QUeen or Prince as they drive by, what you see is the 50,000 or so in that city that are of that attitude. Unfortunatley a far greater portion wonder why we still have the link.

One thing I was going to mention in my post to Pffft .. was a possibly historical influence to attitudes in North America ... that the USA, in their infancy, rebelled against the British and the monarchy and I believe strong anti-British sentiment lingered due to that and spilled over into Canada. I believe that driving on the right side of the road was part of that rebellion. ANd different spelling of words. I heard that German was considered as a possible official language when the USA became independant ... I believe also a as sign of rejection of the British rule over the former colonies.

So some of our attitudes may be a subliminal influence due to that history.

The Pope (whoever is sitting in that role) is by far not a figured head. He is the 'it' man, he is infallible as to his decisions for Roman Catholics, teachings, and tenets.
Don't get me wrong, the scandals and cover ups ..... that's beyond sinful and the responsibility should fall squarely with the sitting Pope --- John Paul covered up a lot. The Pope is the rule maker and translator of the the Bible.
because of the role he plays, the Pope is probably held to a higher standard than anyone else .. he simply cannot be allowed to have any shortcomings.

Historically, only two monarchs of this country have voluntarily stepped aside before death - Matilda (daughter of Henry I) the rightful heir was usurped by her cousin Stephen when Henry died in 1135. This led to a war in which Stephen was defeated and captured by Matilda, but London rose in revolt against her, so in exchange for her son becoming the next heir, she stepped aside for Stephen. The other was Edward VIII in 1936 over Wallis Simpson.
Other monarchs met untimely ends. Edward II was deposed by his wife, Isabella of France in Jan 1327 and ultimately killed at Berkeley Castle in Sept 1327, probably by the insertion of a red hot poker in his anus. Technically, he remained king, although an imprisoned one, until this happened. Richard III was defeated by Henry Tudor in 1485, but as he was killed at the battle (Bosworth Field), he was king until his death. Charles I was executed by Parliament in 1649, but remained king until his death. James II was overthrown in 1688 and fled the country, to be replaced by William of Orange and Mary.
Often those from other countries (and a few in England) suggest that the monarch should step aside, or that the succession should bypass Charles. Neither will happen. There is no precident for it and it would not be set. Cameron has already made an arse of himself over saying that primogeniture should go and women should join the line of succession - it is causing all sorts of problems.
Thanks for the excellent summation on this subject. It is amazing to think that there were no more overthrows over the centuries...

WHen did England become England and when was the first King actually crowned?

Thank you for that Franko..it makes complete sense to me, after all, we can't argue with History. Similar here to be truthful,
I was stunned at the lack of interest shown on the day of Diana's funeral..whereas in London there was mass hysteria from the crowds.
There will be no celebrating here when the new baby arrives....
yet Prince Charles is the Prince of Wales, inaugurated at Caernarfon Castle, but not without incident.
Goes back to when Edward 1st held his first born up to the crowds outside the castle, declaring 'I give you my son, the Prince of Wales'....having built the castle to keep the Welsh out!
Aye, resentment runs deep here, one reason I admire Ireland so much in their welcoming Queen Elizabeth to their country.
Can't win 'em all, lol.
