    For a woman who prided herself on ensuring the Queen always looked her regal best, Angela Kelly was curiously disorganised in her own life. A visitor to her grace-and-favour house in Windsor Great Park was taken aback when she offered to make a cup of tea. ‘She put a tea bag in a mug of cold water and put it in the microwave,’ the guest recalled yesterday. ‘I bet that never happened to the Queen.’ There were domestic dramas at home, too. On one occasion Miss Kelly rang a royal aide to complain about an infestation of rats. A flunkey was despatched to investigate and found that the rodents were nesting in plastic bin liners full of clothes — among them royal garments — which were dumped all over the house. When these stories reached the Queen’s ears they were often received with wry and benevolent amusement. As dresser, personal assistant and confidante, the Liverpool docker’s daughter occupied an intriguing role in the late Queen’s life. It gave her considerable influence over other more senior staff and a position of...
    Chicago Sun-Times Washington bureau chief and columnist Lynn Sweet wrote a harrowing eyewitness account from the shooting at the Fourth of July parade on Monday in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park. In a column published on Tuesday, Sweet wrote about her experience attending the parade not in her job but as a civilian — as six people were killed and 24 others were injured in the attack allegedly carried out by Robert Crimo, 22, who was arrested on Monday after an hours-long manhunt. “I just wanted to go to this parade and enjoy the day. Hang out with friends. Maybe after the parade, go to one of the stunning Lake Michigan beaches that hug this North Shore suburb,” she wrote. “Or maybe have a swim at the Highland Park pool, next to the fire station. That fire station transformed into an emergency operations center after the unimaginable — is this a cliché? — happened.” Sweet described the parade as “delightfully normal” until “it wasn’t.” “I was watching and listening to the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band perform on top...
    Eerie photos of Sydney's abandoned monorail stations have surfaced on social media, inspiring nostalgic Aussies to reminisce over the popular old travel system. The single-loop monorail opened in 1988 connecting central business districts, including Darling Harbour, Pyrmont and Chinatown, but was removed in 2013. The stations were once bustling with locals and travellers alike, but now remain untouched and have been frozen in time for almost a decade. The stations can be viewed from the ground and look like odd extensions to buildings.   The images shared online show the abandoned monorail stations across Sydney (pictured) The stations were once bustling with locals and travellers alike, but now remain untouched and have been trapped in time since 2013 when the monorail shut The single-loop monorail opened in 1988 connecting central business districts, including Darling Harbour, Pyrmont and Chinatown    Ads promoting city sightseeing tours and a very early version of an Opal style card can be seen on the walls   Sydney local Simon posted images to the 'Old Shops Australia' Facebook group alongside the caption: 'The station is all boarded up...
    ON the surface, this three-bedroom house on the market for a mere £57,000 could be the bargain of a lifetime. Any potential buyer ought, however, to look more closely because there’s big catch that might make them think twice. 5The house is set in pleasant woodland with shops within walking distance The property is set in woodlands in rural Finland and the outside of the single floor is pleasing enough on the eye. But open the door and visitors are greeted with a riot of garish colours and that make the house look as if it has been frozen in time from a 197Os porn movie set. Floors and walls are painted luminescent pink and even the bed has a a nightmare inducing pink headboard, Elsewhere, the pink of furniture in the living room is illuminated with orange lights in the around the ceiling Dotted around the house are Venus De Milo – style statues of naked women to add to the seedy feel. There's no escape in the bathroom, though, which has 'I'm singing in the rain room',...

But self-confessed "lazy" mum-of-two Kerry Davies, 40, will be chilling on Christmas Eve with a glass of wine in hand, as she's NEVER cooked the meal for her kids. 4Kerry Davies, 40, is a self-confessed lazy mum and admits she NEVER cooks Christmas dinnerCredit: Supplied The estate agency sales director, from Crewe, Cheshire, has only cooked Christmas dinner for husband, NHS worker Kevin, 44, once in their 20 years of marriage.

    Carbon dioxide cold traps have been identified on the moon for the first time,  following decades of uncertainty that pockets of the frozen gas even existed. If found to hold solid carbon dioxide, these cold traps would be a vital source of fuel for future lunar explorers, along with helping scientists better understanding how water and other elements on the moon formed. A team of American scientists found the cold traps are in the permanently shadowed regions at the poles, where temperatures can stay a consistent -352 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold traps measure a total area of 78 square miles, with the largest area in the Amundsen Crater hosting 31 square miles; they are also located in the same traps that hold water ice.   Scroll down for video  These cold traps measure a total area of 78 square miles, with the largest area in the Amundsen Crater hosting 31 square miles, and are also located in the same traps that hold water ice However the researchers note: 'The existence of carbon dioxide cold traps does not guarantee the existence of...

    BEN CHILWELL will be reminded of better times when the biggest club tournament in world football resumes tonight. The last time the Chelsea defender kicked a ball in a competitive game was also the high point of his career when he won it back in May. 3Ben Chilwell tasted Champions League glory with Chelsea in MayCredit: The Sun From Champions League winner to bystander for England at the Euros and now on the bench without a look in as the new season gathers pace. Boss Thomas Tuchel has held talks with his £50million left back and revealed that Chillwell’s mood darkened as the summer wore on and the glow of victory faded. Chilwell is yet to play a single minute of any game for Chelsea or England since that memorable night against Manchester City in Portugal on May 29. But as the calendar rolls on and European football arrives there is a glimmer of hope that he might finally be seen back on the pitch. Tuchel said: “It has been difficult for him, absolutely. It’s pretty normal.  “He came from...

But officials haven't budged even as other countries gradually open to Americans.A tangled web of Covid-19 border restrictions has limited who can travel to the US.

    For the first time in history, a biodiversity creature identified as a rotifer in Siberia was able to reproduce after 24,000 years of frost. With the naked eye, its species are invisible. According to contemporary dating, they have lived on this planet for thousands of years. They get their name from the wheel shape they hold, and they may resemble one of the most resistant biodiversity on record.

    I was rummaging through a seldom-opened drawer in my desk when I came across the 8×10 black-and-white photograph. It’s a bit creased and rumpled, but oh what a pleasure it brings to the eyes and the mind. A happy moment of life captured for all time with the click of the camera. A happy scene from 40 years ago, now brought to life again. On the left is son Kelly, then 23, and on the right is son Kendall, then 22. They are holding opposite ends of a stringer laden down with heavy fish – chiefly sauger and walleye –, each of which had provided much pleasure in the battle that subdued them. In the middle, looking over their shoulders, beaming, is my father, Bruce, then 72. The churning waters of the Ohio River can be seen in the background. And farther upstream, outside the camera’s view, rises the gates of the Greenup Dam. And I’m so happy that I remembered the Canon hanging around my neck. In these days when it seems everyone carries a smart phone with an...
    YOU WOULD be forgiven for thinking hell has frozen over when looking at these snaps of the Sementnozavodsky region in Russia. The eerie images, taken 11 miles from the coal-mining town of Vorkuta, depict a derelict ghost town of which every inch is covered in snow. One of the coldest cities in Europe, Vorkuta plummets to unbearable temperatures as low as -50C in the winter months. It is the fourth largest city north of the Arctic Circle, hence its extraordinary weather conditions, which sees mammoth buildings covered in blankets of snow. But the numbing temperatures and rising unemployment have left some areas of the settlement deserted. Its estimated population of 70,548 people endure short, cool summers and long, snowy winters in the town, that was once home to a Stalin-established Gulag prison camp. Aerial shots of a construction car park smothered in the white stuff will have Brits thanking their lucky stars next time its windscreen-scraping season. Disused lorries have been buried by the snowfall. Impressively large icicles dangle in front of the windows and down the front of...
    Billionaire Bill Gates has said that Texas Governor Greg Abbott was 'actually wrong' to initially blame the state's catastrophic blackouts on wind turbines that froze in a historic winter storm. On Thursday morning, the power cuts in Texas fell below one million for the first time in four days, but many people remained without electricity or safe drinking water. It came after the deep freeze knocked out roughly a third of the state's electricity generating capacity, with poorly winterized wind, natural gas, coal and even nuclear plants forced offline, officials with the state's grid operator said. In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday, Hannity asked the governor: 'I'm not against nuclear energy either. I'm not against wind turbines, but my question is, if they have these rolling blackouts and you got freezing weather, and they're not reliable, and it's use it or lose it, what good is it?' 'This shows how the Green New Deal would be a deadly deal for the United States of America. Texas is blessed with multiple sources of energy, such as...
    She may be 51, but with her smooth skin, wrinkle-free forehead and impressively unlined eyes, Jennifer Lopez doesn’t look a day over 40. In fact, she looks no different than she did a decade ago. Yet when one fan recently took to social media to claim that her youthful glow must be the result of wrinkle-zapping Botox injections, the singer was quick to shoot them down. ‘For the 500 millionth time . . . I have never done Botox or any injectable or surgery!!’ she wrote in reply. ‘Just sayin’.’ Miss Lopez is not the only celebrity whose face seems to be frozen in time. Here, ALISON BOSHOFF looks at the stars who still look the same as they did a decade ago — leaving us all wondering how do they do it? When a fan commented on Instagram last week that singer Jennifer Lopez, 51, had ‘definitely’ had Botox, J Lo categorically denied it. She then added a plug for her own skincare range: ‘Get you some JLO BEAUTY and feel beautiful in your own skin!!’ ...
    It makes sense for Maureen McCormick to co-host “Frozen in Time.” In 2019, McCormick and her “Brady Bunch” castmates starred in HGTV’s “A Very Brady Renovation,” in which they replicated that show’s original studio set inside the house seen on the ABC series (1969-74). “Frozen in Time,” premiering Monday on nascent streamer discovery+, finds McCormick and designer Dan Vickery (“Design Star,” “Love It or List It”) making over the interiors of Southern California homes stuck in time warps dating back to the 1950s. “What’s so interesting in this process is you can see [the homes’ owners] getting excited, then scared, then excited and scared again,” says McCormick, 64. “It can be a rollercoaster ride for them.

    Florida man has one more thing to worry about now, as local newscasters warn that frozen iguanas may soon rain down on unsuspecting residents of the Sunshine State. Several local Florida news personalities warned viewers Tuesday morning to be on the lookout for a hail of unconscious reptiles due to a recent drop in temperature — and as Ron Burke of ABC affiliate WPBF explained, this wouldn’t be the first time. Burke said he hadn’t seen any of the stricken lizards just yet, but added that “this coldest weather this season we’re having right now could lead to that peculiar sight in South Florida: Iguanas laid out over roadways, sidewalks, golf courses, all over the place, alive but unconscious.” “Now the National Weather Service is warning that ‘We cannot rule out an isolated falling iguana or two this week,'” he said. “Last time we saw it was back in January, and trappers we talked to then described the scene as raining iguanas.” “Now, because they are cold-blooded reptiles and need heat to survive, the sudden temperature drop shocks their...

In 2017, he ventured into the abandoned St Brigid's Hospital, which opened in in 1833 and has sat abandoned since 2013. He saw old hospital beds, wheelchairs sitting in empty hallways, and what was once an isolation room. "It's impossible not to think, 'Gosh, who's been here?'" AdamX said. "If these walls could talk."

    The skeletal remains of what is believed to have been a rich man and his male slave fleeing the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago have been discovered in Pompeii, officials at the archaeological park said Saturday. The partial skeletons were found during excavation of an elegant villa on the outskirts of the ancient Roman city that was destroyed by the eruption in 79 A.D. It's the same area where a stable with the remains of three harnessed horses was excavated in 2017. Pompeii officials said the two men apparently escaped the initial fall of ash, then succumbed to a powerful volcanic blast that took place the following day.

    Garbage collectors dressed up as Frozen characters in Rhode Island last week as the tail end of Hurricane Zeta brought unusually early snowfall to the Ocean State.  Snow started falling in parts of the state just before Halloween as Zeta moved from the Gulf Coast through southern New England bringing with it cold, wet and windy weather.  Northern areas including Woonsocket were blanketed Friday while Rhode Island police were called to respond to multiple minor snow-related accidents on the roads.  This marked the first time in nine years Rhode Island has experienced snowfall by Halloween and one of only 16 times during the month of October since 1900.   Rhode Island experienced Halloween snowfall for the first time in nine years this year and some garbage collectors dressed for the occasion, sporting Frozen character costumes for the holiday season Garbage men were caught on camera dressed as Elsa, Anna and Olaf from Disney film Frozen
    (CNN)Archaeologists have uncovered evidence of an Iron Age massacre, frozen in time for thousands of years until excavation. Discovered in 1935 and first excavated in 1973, the ancient town of La Hoya in northern Spain's Basque Country was destroyed in a violent attack between 350 and 200 BC.The town was never reoccupied, and those who died in the attack remained where they had fallen until the town was excavated. La Hoya was destroyed in a violent attack between 350 and 200 BC.Hoping to find out more about the attack, researchers from the University of Oxford and a team of archaeologists from the United Kingdom and Spain studied 13 skeletons already recovered from the site, in the first detailed analysis of the human remains. Men, women and children were among the dead. "One male suffered multiple frontal injuries, suggesting that he was facing his attacker," said Teresa Fernández-Crespo, lead author of the research, adding: "This individual was decapitated but the skull was not recovered, and may have been taken as a trophy."

Today is a big day for Disney+ as it adds the biggest animated movie of all time and Broadway sensation Hamilton to its schedule. 4Frozen 2 and Hamilton have hit Disney+ just in time for a major streaming boostCredit: ©Disney Enterprises, Inc. Their arrival coincides with Disney+ lifting restrictions on its streaming bandwidth to boost picture quality. The company - along with other streaming services including Netflix and Amazon Prime - had reduced their streaming quality earlier this year at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The decision was taken by the companies in a bid to reduce the strain on broadband networks around the world as millions of people were placed in lockdown in their homes. Thankfully broadband infrastructures have been able to cope with the increased demand due to people working from home - or having more time to binge their favourite films and TV shows - and so Disney+ has followed its competitors and lifted the streaming restrictions. 4Today is...
