Monday's random stuff on Tuesday

MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- As royal households go, Queen Elizabeth II's newest acquisition is unlikely to be confused with Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.
Queen crowned owner of abandoned house under medieval law - under a 607-year-old law, ownership for abandoned dwellings in the area automatically reverts to the British monarch.
It took years of investigation to identify the building's last owner, a dissolved company.
The son of its former director refused to take responsibility for 9 Parkdale Ave., and the rot set in.
Ralph McCabe, who lives next door says he's caught 109 rats in the past six months.

Do you think she will fix up the place?



NEW YORK (Billboard) -- The Eagles hope to take flight with a new album -- sooner rather than later, according to guitarist Joe Walsh. Eagles prepping 1st new album since 1979.

Wow, a blast from the past!



NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Diamonds are no longer a girl's best friend, according to a new U.S. study that found three of four women would prefer a new plasma TV to a diamond necklace.

Hmmmm, I choose diamonds.
Well...I do! ;)

I can't imagine women asking each other, "So, he proposed? How big is the TV?"

Let's exchange links--I'm putting a link to your blog up on my site today.

I'm sure that Dave will be thrilled about the Eagles new tunes. He showed me a concert DVD of theirs that he has... I'll be interested to hear it, too.

Diamond or plasma television.... I think I might be with you on preferring diamonds. Because you know if a guy buys you a plasma tv, it is one of those gifts that is really for him more than it is for you.

hotboy said...

The queen owns all the swans too, I think! Hotboy

Spinning Girl said...

Lovin' those Eagles ... Oooo hooo, witchy woman.

Osbasso said...

The TV isn't so bad, but it's a bugger to cram into one of those little boxes.

The Melody Censor said...

I choose diamonds too!

Jason said...

Imagine proposing to a women and instead of the little box, bring in a big, rectangular box and open it as he pops the question.

Lee Ann said...

David ~ haha, You would have to have them come to your house to show it off!
linked you too! ;)

Violet ~ I am looking forward to the Eagles new release. Yes, I cannot help it, Diamonds make me happy!

Hotboy ~ Lucky queen!

Lee Ann said...

SG ~ Oh, that is a good one. The Eagles are one of those classic bands.

Os ~ You are right! haha

Melody ~ I love the sparkly!

Jason ~ I am imagining...oh, but with a much smaller box! ;)
Haha, you are cute Jason.

Cinderella said...

Becky said...

I would take the diamonds, keep the freaking t.v.!

MyUtopia said...

Cool! Can't wait to hear their new album. I have their lp that I inherited from my mom.

Lee Ann said...

Cinderella ~ Yes, I do :)

Becky ~ I am with you on this!

Myutopia ~ Oh excellent! I have a fairly good vinyl collection! I never listen to them though.

The Husband said...

i can't think of many girls who would choose a TV over diamonds.

Lee Ann said...

Carl ~ So sweet! If you did, I would treat you like the King of the Castle!

Cinderella said...

P.S. Rob Thomas is hawt =)

Lee Ann said...

Cinderella ~ you have that right! ;)

jamwall said...

wasn't glenn frey's last hit that "you belong to the city, you belong to the night" song?

Lee Ann said...

Jams ~ Very good...2002!

angel, jr. said...

Does that mean when I propose to a woman I should offer her a choice of settings-- "in platinum" or "wall mounted"?

Lee Ann said...

Angel ~ haha, yes, that would be a good idea!
My preference...uh, let's see...hmmmm....platinum! Surprised?
;)

NMOTB said...

Hi, You have a really nice and interesting blog! I found you via Cinderella's Blog!:-)

Lee Ann said...

nmotb ~ Hey! Thank you for visiting the Castle. We have fun here, hope you will come back more often.

Tumbleweed said...

Had to stop in and say HI!! Miss you.

Ellen said...

Poor Mr. McCabe.... if there's an excavation, the rats will really come out of the woodworks. Just so glad I don't live next door to the Queens new acquisition.

I'll take the TV over the diamonds. I'm not happy knowing that they use small children in slave labor to extract the diamonds from the mines, myself.

And yay for the Eagles! They were the cats meow back in the late 1970's... and I still like them today.

Instantiable said...

Wow, I haven't read you in a long time. If you ever had a chance to say hi to me, I'd be able to check more often =P

john said...

will you settle for a plasma tv showing diamond ?

Mystical Me said...

What woman are they asking this question anyways? I would rather have a Beautiful Pink Diamond anyday over a TV. LOL!!

David Amulet, that was funny!! How big was the TV!! LMAO!!

Take care sweetheart & I hope all is well with you. Love always, MM XOXO

Lee Ann said...

Tumble ~ Hey, I have missed you too. I will come over for a visit. Any particular time better than another?

Ellen ~ I know, the rats, make me sick! I know, Saur has been very informative about diamonds. I just can't help myself, the sparkle just makes me happy. The Eagles are just so classic.

Lee Ann said...

Instantiable ~ Hey! I am glad to see you. I will come over for a visit. Thanks for coming by. Please do come back again soon.

John ~ hmmm....nice try John!

Mystical ~ Oh, pink diamond. Very beautiful!
Thank you, hope all is well with you too sweetie!

Fred said...

The Missus is with you 100%. There's no substitute for diamonds. Sigh...

ticharu said...

I'd so much rather have the diamonds! Plasma TVs are a complete waste of money. Diamonds are easy to carry and hold their value really well.

Lee Ann said...

Fred ~ Yes, I completely understand Fred!

Tich ~ You have some very good points!

The Appalachianist said...

I see that it's 2053hrs and 90 degrees in Birhmingham, sounds like it's been a rough day.

Lee Ann said...

Hey App!
Yes, it has been over 100* for a week now. The heat index is about 5* higher. Damn humidity.
It is good for making you feel like dragging around.
I shouldn't complain to you, I have it great compared to you.
So good to see you. I am so glad you keep in touch.
Be safe!

twolf1920 said...

LeeAnn-You are SUCH de Gurly-Gurl! How about the Plasma TV AND the Diamonds?

Lee Ann said...

T ~ Thank you, that is perfect!

robmcj said...

Plasmas are not forever.

Lee Ann said...

Rob ~ You are right...perfect response!
