Queen Elizabeth joining the YouTube generation..?!?
Yea right... I've got 50 bucks that says the Queen hasn't got the
foggiest idea even how to start a computer far less anything else
for that matter that involves the Internet. Most likely her PR
department is doing all the work for the sake of a "photo opt" with
Queenie..

Em, she isn't a techophobe
I heard that she has used a computer, done e-mail, have a iPod, and has a mobile since the late '90s (a Siemans C35i). Okay now do I hear a cheque of £23.50 on my way.

Plá ar do theach
Avenging and bright fall the swift sword of Eireann,
On them who the brave sons of Usna betray'd!
For ev'ry fond eye he hath waken'd a tear in,
A drop from his heart-wounds shall weep o'er her blade!

By the red cloud that hung over Conner's dark dwelling,
When Ulad's three champions lay sleeping in gore
By the billows of war, which so often, high swelling,
Have wafted these heroes to victory's shore.

We swear to revenge them! no joy shall be tasted,
The harp shall be silent, the maiden unwed,
Our halls shall be mute and our fields shall lie wasted,
'Till vengeance is wreak'd on the murderer's head!

Yes, monarch! tho' sweet are our home recollections,
'Tho sweet are the tears that from tenderness fall;
Tho' sweet are our friendships, our hopes, our affections,
Revenge on a tyrant is sweetest of all!
