    And she confessed that the modern Nobel committee is an embarrassment to Swedes based on Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and Barrack Obama...none of whom, she pointed out, ever brought real peace to anyone.....
    Outstanding to hear that someone there gets it. Im thinking Sweden's greatest exports are its women, their mauser rifles, and the mora knife.

    That nitro stabilizing process had other benefits, it was discovered by people who manufactured and processed it that they were getting headaches, and low blood pressure. Later that became useful to heart patients, it lowers mortality in myocardial infarction by 5%. Thats the little story I give my students on ntg.

    ....no knows this, but hell is the "death watch" journalists do with Queen and family or, the Nazi land of DOTHINGSOURWAYORGOHELL Vatican.

    You cannot speak to the queen, approach or turn your back. You may make eye contact, but briefly, and you never, ever touch them......and the pope is worse.

    I made a mistake once and used a four letter word when speaking to Phillip...he was cool but my colleagues had a good story.....

    If I had been old knowing what I know now and Phillip asked me why he got ghosts on his telly, there would have been a very big story....
    Thats awesome, Ive never met Royalty. There was an incident recently where Lebron James was meeting the princess and in a photo he's touching her arm. He was all sweaty as well.

    I like older male patients because they hit on the nurses and cute physicians at work.

    And yet more irony....

    Lets see if he stays that way. I suspect the death threats he and his family received for his policies will inspire him. His children have been harassed in grocery stores, and someone threatened to "gut his wife like a deer".

    Im reminded of Reagan who was initially a democrat, even doing campaign ads for Truman. And then one day he met a stalinist marxist who told him that despite this fact that if Stalin was able to beat the US, that Reagan would be imprisoned and then killed-all without missing a beat.

    Reagan would later be threatened by marxists many more times, from within the actors guild to in the white house. Im sure it was influential to him.

    Yup. Viagra was developed for the same heart patients, and ended up being used in other ways.

    Royalty really IS different and I sensed in my few encounters they have great discomfort and anxiety with the public world.

    BTW, for Expo I was in a receiving line with Chuck and Di, he has a hell of a hand shake, she was a wet fish, no eye contact. Chuck got me into talking about sailing so I invited him out to which he famously replied "Dear me, I should say that as an officer in the Royal Navy the last place you should have me is on a sailboat."

    I have discovered that we do not have to hit on anyone....they come to us. Not kidding, I am approached all the time by women in the early 20's. I confess though, I have cultivated the look, I am fit, 6' 210, with white hair and beard and a snappy African walking stick.

    I think they have the mistaken belief that I am "safe"....

    but had I known then what I have come to know about women now, I would not have gotten to be old....

    That one I know about, I had a friend who made the pleasant discovery as a heart patient...

    however by that time acting on it is dangerous

    It has been awhile since I read it, but Peggy Noonan's book on Reagan "When Character Was King" deals with that. Not surprisingly, what never changed in his life was his faith, which intertwined with his ideology....we forget this guy cracked wise to the surgeons when he was shot "Please be Republicans"...

    Think Obama would be that cool?
