Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

New America's Cup skipper?

Yeah, he was on Black Magic ... just not my Black Magic

Prince William is learning the duties expected of a British royal. This time, he's representing his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, on a tour of New Zealand and Australia. He's done ceremonial things like dedicating new government buildings, visiting a children's hospital, and participating in traditional food-related celebrations. He also visited with members of the New Zealand rugby team, and he got a spin at the helm of the New Zealand America's Cup yacht.

After looking at the schedule he has to follow on this visit Down Under, I would have to say that I would hate to have to go through all of the public ceremonial occasions and appearances that he has on his calendar. I do not think I could survive such a grueling routine. At least he had the ruggers and the sailors to lighten things up.
