There is much to be said about the royal family, and all the newspaper reporters and gossip columnists the world over certainly say as much as their libel laws allow. This past week, the tabloid columnists, TV anchors (known as presenters in England), and global bloggers were delighted to announce that Duchess Kate and Prince William were expecting a third child. Interestingly, here in the States, rather than just reporting the impending birth in an objective and respectful way, the news items all crowed that Kate was suffering from horrible morning sickness, was ill and retching, and was feeling quite awful on a daily basis. Wow! Welcome to the world, new Royal Baby #3.

With the change of seasons, many folks are tempted to wax poetically about the tumbling leaves and the falling foliage. I, too, am aware that autumn is just about to envelop us, but I can make that observation due to the lack of falling fur.

Going to a Broadway show is always a treat, but it was extra special when we set out to see “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” a gift from a very kind friend, as our summer family excursion. In the theater, there is a saying that a performer is a triple threat — can sing, can dance, can act — well, this was a triple treat: it was a complimentary gift; it was delightful; it was all about sweets!
