Remember her?
I remember Rula Lenska. I had no idea she was a Polish princess. Was she? I thought she was a marketing invention. Was it hairspray she advertised?

Rula Lenska (born Countess Roza-Marie Leopoldyna Lubienska, 30 September 1947) is an English actress. Best known for her work in the United Kingdom, she is remembered in the United States for a television advert that presented her as a celebrity, even though she was not widely known in the US at the time the advert was produced.

She has appeared extensively on television in the UK and is notable for her red hair and "40 a day" voice. She is divorced from actor Dennis Waterman.

Waiting for a friend to show up, so we can start boiling the pasta. The sauce is ready. The garlic bread just needs to be heated. DH forgot that today was Sunday and that they had planned on having food at a Japanese restaurant tonight.

I didn't know it was broadcaast in this country also. I assume those of you who live in Canada, get her broadcast. I haven't been listening to any news today. Any report on how Prince Philip is doing? The last I heard was that he was rushed to the hospital with chest pains.

I don't know how the average British subject feels, but I would hate to see the Monarchy end.
