Condolences to English contributors

    The Queen came from my parent's generation that seemed to have a more balanced view of duty and integrity and her passing appears to close out the era of that wonderful generation of people and perhaps the sadness felt presently. Maybe people can learn that at a time where there is so much self-inflicted drama, people can go about their duty to society as individuals in the same spirit as that lady.

    I would echo Orion’s contribution. She was a fantastic lady and a model of care to duty and standing by one’s values. Condolences to your UK contributors at this sad time.

    A good many UK contributors add great value to this forum, companionship and comradery is a wonderful thing and helps, as did the actions of the Queen herself, draw a line under all the historical begrudgery.

    I find it baffling that some idiots come into an obviously OT post to complain about it being OT. Are you just stupid or are you pushing some kind of agenda against a dead woman?

    To stay on topic for the hard of thinking... King Charles III is a massive advocate of climate change research, alternative energies and metrological studies. His future support may benefit us all.

    Some people just want to be "edgy" for the sake of it.

    No trees were harmed in the posting of this message, however a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

    I admired the lady as a fellow Christian with a strong sense of duty and dedication in her vocation. It is a rare quality that doesn't answer to great wealth or normal subsistence for both have their own burdens as well as gifts and talents.

    In any case, my condolences once again.
