    "Thailand is plunged into mourning following the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who had ruled the country since 1946. With flags flying at half-mast to mark the start of a year-long grieving period, the dead King's son has been named as heir-apparent."

    A good man, and a great king, much loved and respected by his people. Most Thais have never known any other king.

    Queen Elizabeth has now become the world's longest-serving monarch.

    Maiden Gertrude,
    Will you be on the edge of a Cliff when you go off of the wagon? That would sure be a shame. 😛

    You must have me confused with robbie. Perhaps you've had your nose in a position where it fogged your mind a little. 😉

    Oh, us Brits, so proud. So sarcastic, so able to see our significance in the world from the outset, so un-royalist and yet so happy to remember we have the royals. We're an interesting bunch, all in all.

    I saw the king and queen in Chaing Mai. I lived in Thailand for 2 years. NKP (Nakon Phanom), close to the Mekong river. Pretty adventurous time. I was there from 72 to 74 and he was king then almost 20 years. There were literally thousands of Thais on the side of the road into Chaing Mai there to see him go past in his limo. A good time was had by all.
