First up, 2021 Q1, RIP.
The vaccination rate is chugging along under the focused planning and action of the Biden administration, masking, and social distancing. So maybe we are turning the corner in the pandemic soon. Here’s to RIP 2021 Q2 and COVID-19.
Thank goodness for Joe Biden; what would we have done without him and his operation Warp Speed. :-J
And kudos to Al Gore; I’m sure he assisted in the development of the vaccine – he’s such an innovator.
The Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen’s “strength and stay” for 73 years, has died aged 99.
A statement from Buckingham Palace on Friday said: “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. Further announcements will made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”
He grew up nearly penniless, and was known when young to describe himself as “a prince of no particular distinction.”
The article continues with information on his character, sense of duty, commitment to the Navy and then after marriage to what he saw as his role of Royal consort.
He was noted for non-PC remarks that might have reflected his sense of humor, or else hisupbringing (in a less multiculturally aware, age).
@f00l He also had a sense of humor that was relatable, even in the milieu of the Royal Family. Here he is greeting the queen on her birthday on her morning walk around Buckingham Palace, disguised in full Beefeater dress uniform.
