    Default Did you know? A bit of a laugh, don't you think?

    I was reading an article on the presentation of a newly bred rose to Queen Elizabeth by the Royal Horticultural Society called the Duke of Edinburgh Rose.

    I thought it a bit of a laugh that the president of the society has the name of Keith Weed.

    Lol....

    But...For every rose sold, the company Harkness Roses will donate 2.50 pounds ($3.50) to a fund aiming to help a million more young people from all backgrounds take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Awards, a popular youth award program set up by Philip in 1956.

    Yeah, all the rich contribute a Name...but not the money. That comes from the rest of us.
