        The  Prince is back in the nest!  No more MRE !  (“MRE is military jargon for meals-ready-to-eat”)…. The young Prince completed pilot training  in a Royal Air Force Prop Plane….He bravely did a brief  “tour of duty”….Is a “royal wedding” next? ….Like his father– the young Prince will wear the Royal “kilt”  when he finally does marry….

The Archduke Dominic Habsburg, a 69 year old New York architect,  has put his family’s castle (pictured above) up for sale at “only” $135 million dollars.  The Archduke (a member of Romania’s “former” Royal Family) commented to reporters that he would only sell the castle to a buyer who would treat the property and it’s history with appropriate respect.

(Renee’s aside: “News flash!  News flash!  your ArchDuke-ship, sir.   Ain’t nobody, nobody, gonna be ‘dissing’  Vlad — now are they? “….

And–the sign read:  CASTLE FOR SALE, CALL: TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000…)
