One of the beauties of DVR...I recorded the US Women's basketball game from this morning and later in the evening watched it. Fast forward through all the ads and halftime. Watched a complete game in under an hour. laugh

Well, on the BBC there are no ads at all - a stupid commentary from time to time is a small price to pay. smile

Although saying the Queen was acting was a bit off. I stared at my tv in shock "is that really the Queen? Is that the real Queen or a stand in? OMGosh, it's really the Queen!" And one of her corgis can roll over on cue, I was impressed with that dog. Oh wait, maybe it wasn't a real royal rolling corgi...

I thought the corgis were wonderful, mugging for the camera like professionals.

Until she turned around, I was convinced it was going to be that Jeanette woman who's been the Queen's double for years.

I do not think that Jeanette Charles has aged as well as the Queen so her look alike stints have been few and far between. Shame she didn't wear Union Jack Knickers during the parachute descent.
