    Makes it a lot easier to watch the morning news-ertainment. I tape
    4 hours worth and watch them in 1/2 hour instead of the usual 1 1/2.

    But I have to admit I watched he piece on the wedding cakes on
    yesterday's Today show.<g> Cookies crumbled into chocolate? I'm
    in.

    Oh yes I can! Got no tv.

    Actually, mom has one in her bedroom (aka the black hole) and she'll
    be holed up there all day fer the wedding. Jinkies! I get a day off.

    OBfood. Think I'll make some split pea soup or butter beans. Got the
    ham and ham stock. Made sf's killer carrot cake last night. I'm
    drowning in good food!

    Ha, I do the same thing. I get the highlights of the news, some
    segments are interesting/informative, but who could sit through
    4 hours every day. The past weeks and now this week especially,
    ZZZZZZZIIIP. Really, I don't care about seating plans and
    commemorative plates.

    I did finally watch two royal segments for the first time yesterday,
    hats and cake. Funny.

    I shall not watch the ceremonies and I have little respect for
    hereditary positions but I have to admit that William and Kate are an
    attractive pair of young people and, even with a sense of foreboding, I
    wish them a long and happy marriage.

    Compare them to the awkward strangers his parents were when
    they got engaged, it's a breath of fresh air. I wish them the best.
    It's certainly not their fault the media's gone mad over their wedding.

    It never ceases to amaze me how much interest people have in that clan
    if in-breds. What amazes me even more is how much more fascinated
    Americans seem to be in the royals than Canadians. I get the media from
    both sides of the border and it the American sources devote a lot more
    time to the upcoming wedding than ours do.

    I'm sure there are millions and millions of Americans who could not
    care less about it. You're confusing the media interest with viewer
    interest.

    I'm a traitor. I haven't watched any of it. I wish them well - they
    have a tough road ahead.

    Supposedly William's favorite cake. The other thing that might appear
    for one of the meals is "Eton Mess." I saw a brief on that - very
    amusing - big mistake turned into a favorite dessert with only 3
    ingredients.

    I love it all, don't care if everyone thinks it's silly - ever since
    Queen Elizabeth was a little girl. I had a scrapbook of pictures and
    articles from current magazines when I was young in the 40s - have
    kind of kept track of Elizabeth and Anne ever since. I probably come
    by it honestly - half my family ancestors are English, and my paternal
    grandmother was a real Anglophile, if that's the correct word. I had
    a something-great grandfather who was Lord Mayor of Dublin (not
    exactly English, but the UK nevertheless). This will be the second-in-
    a-lifetime future-king royal English wedding I will watch on TV - the
    beautiful couple certainly has my best wishes, and I don't see the
    marriage failing. Any foreboding I have would be attached to
    William's job as a rescue helicopter pilot - not exactly the safest
    thing in the world.

    Not really. The media delivers what the public wants, as evidenced by
    ratings and sweeps which these days are very accurate, since cable and sat
    systems can easily survey what channels you use. Respectable journalists
    might cover a story for a couple days because it's news, and for no other
    reason, but the extended hooplah only exists because people are watching it.

    It's good you didn't say magazines. They are inundated, as are the webzines.

    I expect to see Popular Mechanics come out with a Royal Wedding
    Commemorative Issue.

    If it was a special about the royal wedding, I'd go along, but it's just
    your everyday morning shows the people watch anyway, there are
    more things than just that. They often have a lot of content I'm not
    interested in, that's why I record and fast forward through it, as other
    people do.

    I do not know what the ratings are for dedicated Will & Kate movies
    or shows, and they were put together in anticipation of interest. I
    don't know anyone who is that into it, we were just talking about
    that at Easter. Lots of coverage, no one into it.

    Oh, Nancy, come join me at 4 am for crumpets and tea! I listened to my first
    royal wedding -- Elizabeth and Phillip -- in 1948 on the radio in my dorm
    room. Bless 'em all (some more than others, of course)!

    Hey, why not, it's a free country. I don't think it's silly except
    how they're filling a lot of time every day on it. Easy enough
    for me to ignore.

    Neat. My paternal grandparents generation moved here from
    Ireland, but none of them were Lords of anything. Heh.

    They seem down to earth, to me. Better matched than some
    marriages I've known.

    Really. He seems determined to serve like many of the people
    there in conflicts.
