….of birds, Queen, & recipe…


…”Backyard bird count shows B.C. has most diversity in Canada”…”Special K, champagne: Queen Elizabeth has made it to 90 with this diet”…

SOMETHING ABOUT…..“B.C. boasts Canada’s greatest diversity of wintering birds while in North America the northern cardinal proved to be the most frequently reported bird, followed by the American crow, mourning dove, dark-eyed junco and downy woodpecker.”

SOMETHING ABOUT“Her day begins with an Earl Grey tea and biscuit, followed later by Special K or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffles and a prelunch gin with Dubonnet. Lunch is a salad and chicken, or fish and vegetables (never starch, when she’s alone). Afternoon tea is a must, with its cookies, cakes and crustless sandwiches. Dinner is meat, perhaps with a rich, creamy sauce. Dessert might be strawberries from Balmoral farm or sweet white peaches from the greenhouse at Windsor Castle. She does have her vices and reportedly likes chocolate for a treat and Champagne for a nightcap.”

Salut sings—“long live the Queen!”
