  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (born Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark10 June 1921 – 9 April 2021) was a member of the British royal family as the husband of Elizabeth II.

Philip married the then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947, following distinguished service in the Royal Navy during World War II. Together, they had four children — Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward — eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
 
When Elizabeth ascended the throne in February 1952, on the death of her father, George VI, Philip’s lifetime of service as royal consort began.
 
Over the decades, Philip often accompanied the Queen on royal engagements, and conducted thousands of his own solo appearances. He once referred to himself as “the world’s most experienced plaque unveiler,” while the Queen lauded him as her “constant strength and guide.”
 
Philip continued making public appearances well into his 90s, retiring only in August 2017. (Source: CNN)

Photo IDs

Georgia’s new voting law requires a drivers’ license or state ID number be listed to submit an absentee ballot to vote, among other new reforms. The state already required ID to vote in person. It had previously relied on signature matching to verify ballots.

Coca-Cola Chairman and CEO James Quincey issued a statement Wednesday night saying the company is “disappointed in the outcome of the Georgia voting legislation.”

And yet Coca-Cola required a valid photo ID for admission to their shareholder meeting.

  1. I always enjoy your work because I get a chuckle. I didn’t answer all your polls today because I don’t have children. I do know lots of people who do so I shared your quote from Bruce Lee. I was an art teacher so the teacher in me had to post his wise words! Thank you so much! Keep up the great work you do here.

  2. I like that last bit. It is called an honest spoiler. Some people think a book can change a person. It helps only when the person himself is willing to effect the change. Reading about changing and doing something to actually change are two different things.
