* There is a lovely sense of non sequitur about the Irish bookmaker taking bets on who will be the next Pope. It smacks of turning the temple into a market place. 🙂
* If you ever find yourself on a night flight between Sydney and Brisbane, try and get a window seat on the left hand side of the plane. It’s truly a magical feast for the eyes.
* So apparently Camilla Parker Bowles will technically be the next Princess of Wales, and the ceremony to adorn her with that title will take place probably on the same date as the Pope’s funeral. Can anyone say “cluster f***-up”? The fates have been against this marriage of Charles and Camilla from the first. Mind you, most of us can’t bear either of them, and won’t acknowledge them in their future roles. I’m sure this will do wonders for the republican movement, so all’s well that ends well!
