Will Queen Elizabeth II See Her Platinum Jubilee? [VIDEO]

The monarchy has always fascinated me. Yes, other countries have kings and queens, but the tradition in England is what is etched in our minds. The crowns, the throne, the whole big show, it's what makes the British monarchy an enduring institution. Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year and she's one of the rare leaders to see a 60-year reign, the other being Queen Victoria, who ruled a total of 64 years. If Elizabeth makes it to her Platinum Jubilee, she will be 96 years old.

I Love You — You Go First – No You Go First [Video]

I am no William -- but, without revealing too much on that special night in July 1983 when I asked Debra to marry me and told her "I love you" I was first to say it. Since then I assumed I was out of the ordinary by doing so because I would have thought women would say the three magic words first.

Muammar Gaddafi Death End of a Nasty Era [GRAPHIC PHOTO]

Ronald Reagan was our president through my high school and college years. In terms of foreign policy, his first term could partially be described as "Reagan vs. Brezhnev." In fact, his fiery exchanges with the Russian leader created fears of a nuclear war, similar to those in the 60s. The TV-movie "The Day After" exemplified such concerns. In his second term, it became "Reagan vs. Gaddafi." And now, it's "Nobody vs. Gaddafi." The long-time Libyan dictator is dead.

Earth Granted 5-Month Extension

So you really didn't think you'd heard the last of Pastor Harold Camping, did you? As May 21, 2011 came and went without sounding trumpets or horsemen in the sky, the old bird must have been bewitched, bothered, and bewildered that his apocalyptic pronouncement died on the vine. Not to worry; the old guy isn't letting any grass grow under HIS feet.

Is it safe to come out? I figured if the world was going to come to an end, it would be apocalyptic. But I guess I can unload my bunker, now. Everybody's still here.
