  1. You ask the greatest questions! In response to the glass half full/half empty question:

    I am an opporunist. So, the point is not that the glass is half full or half empty. The point is that there is room for more beverage. Hopefully wine! 😂

      1. I am glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, I have never been fond of that question either. You will find that answer typically shuts people up when they ask that question, too! 😆

    I saw their Netflix documentary. No plans to read the book. Their story maybe important to them but not to me. But I do feel that the British monarchy has outlived its usefulness. Just my view, and I’m sure most people of your country won’t agree with me.

    Is the glass half full or half empty for you?
    Always half full. Can’t help it as I’m a born optimist.

    In your opinion – as individuals do we matter and if so/not why?
    We all matter! If not to the whole wide world, but to those around us. Family and friends especially. Why? Because our presence makes a difference in their lives too.

    What mistakes do you make over and over?
    Tripping, knocking my knees and shins on objects in my way, slipping and falling. Again and again!

      1. Thanks Rory. I actually fail to see why people think that one family had the God given right to rule over them? What’s so special about them????

  3. I do not know enough to judge Prince Harry but superficially he seems like a glass half empty guy. I love that no matter what I do, my glass keeps getting refilled at least to the halfway mark. I matter to a fault. My mistakes are repeated so often I just call them bad habits.

    What are your views on Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex’s published memoir ‘Spare’ and the media coverage supporting it – even if you haven’t read the book?
    I love Harry and Meghan ❤️ … I think the royal family is just that “a family”… full with issues and problems… unfortunately they are on the world stage. Is not a family that has the luxury of privacy which I am sure is added pressure.

    This is the world and this is life … no one ever said it was fair, no one makes it out unscathed, or alive

    We all have crosses to bear and good for Harry – I like him alot! I like he is finding his happiness and his space

    Is the glass half full or half empty for you? I’d say half full usually

    In your opinion – as individuals do we matter and if so/not why?

    Depends on situation or person you want to matter to??

    If government – good luck

    What mistakes do you make over and over?

    Umm little things like forgetting to hit reply lol ✌️😝😄

    Otherwise mistakes are lessons you learn from 😘❤️ … albeit eventually lol … maybe? 😉 life usually makes me ✌️

    1. Hey Trisha, some excellent answers in this batch with some great provocation to boot. I like Harry, but am sick and tired of the coverage of it all. But l am not a royalist so it doesn’t bother me in that way.

      I think there are more pressing matters to be occupying the news than H&M, but that is the way of celebrity lifestyles, there will always be those that lean that way and want to read about them.

      There are always two sides to a single story, there are always heroes and villians and neither H&M are any less guilty of villianous behaviour than the firm are – they have just voiced it.

      1. Haha no provocation meant … just always liked Harry (the red haired one ❤️😘 lol)

        Yes – but that is with everything

        The royal family is no stranger to massive press lol ✌️

        Oh let me count the ways lol ✌️😘

        I think with the royal family is little different – in the age of news media they are just a fixture in England … always been in peoples lives … they a family the world has watched for long time… generations… and like I said they are just that “a family” with as much dysfunction as any other family… they just on world stage

        So people feel they know them?

        Not to mention people like to judge others lives instead of looking at their own

        And yes – there is definitely more pressing matters – they just maybe offer a break for people to focus on instead of the crap of the world or their own lives which may be lacking?

        But yes no one in the world actually focuses on the actual serious issues of the world – the world has ADD … they can NOT focus – there are many worldly distractions from actual issues and problems

        My grandfather used to say “there are 2 sides to every story and then there is the truth”

        I always thought that was terrible thing to say – but I understand that better now… cause everyone sees differently so … what you say… what I say… and what actually happened unbiasedly

        Not that I care …but for discussion purposes… you call the royal family “the firm” … that makes them sound awful!! Like a mafia or very cold and unfeeling – do people call them “the firm” ?

        I don’t mind the royal family – I just don’t pay attention unless someone makes me lol

        Agreed both have equally done wrong and could have been handled better – but I will also say sometimes in order to have any change you need to rock the boat a little?

        Diana did

        So funny that you refer to people who pay attention to royal family “royalist” lol

        That makes me think of America back during the American revolution lol

        My mom loved the royal family – she sat glued to tv for Princess Diana and Charles wedding – she thought was such a fairy tale ❤️ sparked her imagination ❤️ she viewed it so dreamily lol

        And when the kids were born lol – she was all excited and wanted to know

        The closest we have to a royal family would have been the Kennedy’s – but we all know what happened to our Camelot

        You must be inundated with coverage over there lol

        I feel you!!

        Next year will be our presidential election so here comes all the political fighting and bullshit for us Omg it’s gonna inundate our tv and I can’t handle that. Not that I watch tv – but that means no live tv and no news or nothing even what would normally be my pattern

        I will avoid political ugh 😑 here it comes

        Would not be so bad if they actually discuss (like adults) the issues, make realistic promises, speak civilly … and with intelligence and integrity

        But that is never done. Ugh 😑 I dread cause that’s just gonna be everywhere!!

        If you think we bad with holidays – ugh elections 😑 ugh … that’s a double groan

        So I can sorta feel you ✌️

        Mine is for a presidency …
        So it is bit more important …but still gonna be just unbearable!!! “Shoved in face daily”

        Ready to watch some shit go down over here? Grab your popcorn 🍿

        2024 US elections … coming to a world stage near you lol 😑 ugh 😑 I cringe

        Ugh what is gonna happen this time? Ugh 🤦‍♀️

        At least the royal family doesn’t make one cringe 🤷‍♀️?

        But yours is always all the time probably …since you live THERE lol … that’s history too

        But I can imagine how much coverage over there lol

        You win for having it at all times

        Mine is only every 4 years ✌️

        To some like my mom – your royal family was a fairy tale … we don’t have anything like that… so she was just curious and dreamy

        She wasn’t obsessed but loved all their big happy moments 🙌

        Eh live and let live… doesn’t effect my life what royal family do 🤷‍♀️

        But president can effect my life 😮

        Ugh I hope it goes well in ‘24 🙏😳

        I don’t trust either party at all – I am waiting to see what the shit show will be this time

        Mine gives me feelings of anxiety … I do not feel that with the royal family 😊❤️✌️ they can write books, sure 📖 why not make money with your story? If there is interest and you are able. Whatever

        So 🤷‍♀️

        Mine is harsher 🙄 ugh – I just hate the awfulness so I don’t like it

        Yours is beloved lol …I don’t mind yours

        Yours is more paparazzi sensationalism of every detail – but the family is loved by many still

        It doesn’t bother me cause I don’t pay attention unless someone points it out or they make huge news lol

        Do I still provoke you? Lol ✌️

  6. What are your views on Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex’s published memoir ‘Spare’ and the media coverage supporting it – even if you haven’t read the book?

    I might read the book since it’s his story. I don’t watch the media coverage.

    Is the glass half full or half empty for you?

    Always half-full!

    In your opinion – as individuals do we matter and if so/not why?

    Everyone matters. We get lost in looking for acceptance from others and the world instead of the person in the mirror.

    What mistakes do you make over and over?

    Not believing people when they show me who they are. I have a tendency to view them how I want them to be or know they could be.
