The Brits on here will remember a little match in 1982 between ourselves and a South American country (recent release of cabinet papers shows that the USA even offered us an aircraft carrier for that one - much obliged fellas). The result then was UK 1, Argentina 0.
Now, in dire economic trouble again (as in 1982) the President of Argentina has decided to sabre-rattle about the Falklands again with a letter to Cameron demanding their return. A friend posted this on fb and felt it was worth sharing:

Yo, I too remember the '82 dust-up; and this week's BBC World News bit about the exchange between the Argentine Pres. and PM Cameron with a side of an opinion piece by the Latina and a Brit newspaper response (which I can't recall right now).

Jolly good show!

The truth is ... the cover-up and the likely Congressional hearings about it are being reported.
Months after the election. When there was the tragic shooting there were reports all over before any facts were known. The Libya was all about not saying anything until all the facts are know. Two total different standards. The media was in the tank for Obama

Check out www.schinpffs.com . I work with a lady whose daughter married into the family who owns the confectionery. I guess it's quite well known out that way.
I mapped that city...
It is right about 3 and a half hours from Columbus, Ohio. We are in the middle of the state.

Coming in late this evening, just to pass on the
good news regarding MillyMolly really. Well, we
spent HOURS at the Vet's but she could not have
had better treatment...incidentally she is about
11 yrs of age, the nurse thought she was a kitten,
she is SO appealing. I voiced my concerns about
her permanently hovering over her drinking water,
we discussed what it may possibly be, Jim thoughts
on the matter in view of her age, is kidney probs,
although not advanced. I mumbled something about
'I was wondering diabetes' but he ruled that out
but spur of moment, did a blood test for her blood sugar, and lo and behold, no sign of diabetes, phew!
So it's tablets to help the kidney disorder..and he
wants to see her in a month's time....
Really appreciated your good wishes.
YAWN..... I was so Bored...
I knew just where to go...hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
;o)

Hi Lady Eleanor... It's great to hear some good news when you have concerns over your pet.. Bless their little hearts They can't tell us how they feel and it takes someone with compassion to see that something is wrong.. You are certainly the one those furkids should be with.. and having a Vet who really cares is a blessing...
I'm glad that MillyMolly isn't diabetic.. that is so hard on an animal.. Humans included... I'll be overjoyed the day a cure is found... My Father was diabetic and I'm hypoglycemic... so that disease runs in our famiily..
I hope that you are having a great day today and I hope that no matter what you do you will enjoy yourself...
I'm talking myself into scrubbing down the bathroom... It Is Not my favorite household chore...hahahahaha
Sending you all of my best and warmest wishes....
((Love-n-Hugs))

think man! Foreign tragedy with Embassy and CIA fatalities. That is inherently a different standard than "almost anything else" because of national security issues.

Media didn't bury this during the election, either.

I remind you that YOU put on this very thread some crap about Libyans dragging Steven's body through the streets, and I called you on it with citations and content.

I hope by now you HAVE seen/heard the official police (CT state police) info made known by 3rd day after the massacre; probably on the 2nd day.

Droning on and on to balance each post of this imaginative Democrats/Obama bashing I won't do, to abide by my posts about 'horse beating'.

Our non-American friends should keep in mind where you're coming from, and that you don't speak for "us" -- "we Americans". Furthermore, "we" all are not necessarily confused by political systems and labels of other countries. "We" may not understand the nitty-gritty nuts and bolts of some machinations, but that doesn't make "us" confused. It just takes a bit of interest outside "our" little world.

I fell asleep while ago
and was thinking about what this year
has for us all.
and about the other years that have gone,
mysteriously to some secret place.

' 2013.. A brand New Year'

****



"In the dying days of December..

I crossed a bridge unknown

Away from where
I had previously been
into another [time] zone.

As I opened my door .
'HE' was standing there,
.. breathing silver mist in winter air

That snowy look about his face
A shimmer frost all thru'
HIS hair

'HE '' said >

'Tis a joy to meet you, my dear..

I AM 2013 - your brand New Year'

'Gifts I will bring .. along the way
You will come to know these
day by day.

And .. by far..
the greatest -
If it's mine to give
is the promise of..

ANOTHER YEAR TO LIVE'

I bowed my head,
I thanked 'HIM" kindly

As off I set, fumbling blindly ..

down the MYSTERIOUS road ..
once more

to learn

what the NEW YEAR holds in store "

I didn't know that reporting had 2 standards. I thought you need 2 sources to report. I guess the news just depends on if it is about a liberal or a conservative. You can't honestly say they are held to the same standard

LOL My wife is not a driver. I would have to put her in the trunk :) A suagar shack comes from Hawaii. The Hawaiians have been like surfs under the king and as the missionaries became the new masters in the sugar industry the Hawaiians worked on the sugar plantations. They were provided a home. A sugar shack. This went on for generations. With a family living in the same sugar shack. They don't grow sugar anymore so they don't need the labor. Hawaiians were sent off the property and out of their sugar shacks. Wood is now a big product and it is not labor intensive:)

They still have cane fields in the islands!
Can we stay moderate in the kitchen!?
Love you El! Thanks for the thread,
Good to know the pets are okay. We call ours "beasts". A behavior thing...

Do you have a lot of Irish?
Does that mean a lot of Catholics in your family?
Lot of Irish. Lots of fans of Manfred Mann --- the Mighty Quinn --- it goes without saying all Catholics although I do not practice anymore (long story). Had some priests and nuns in the family too ...... my mom even considered joining the convent!

Fine piece of television,
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert

nine children to their credit too..

She outlived him by forty years!

I'm so glad I didn't miss it.

The theme song from the movie is beautiful..

Not on the big Island. Pulp wood has replaced the huge cane fields of old. The missionaries went to the Islands to do good and they did very well :)

Just as well for you that she didn't! Might be a little tricky explaining your existence in that case.

Caught half of it before I fell asleep on the sofa (paying for that now - wide awake so a brief burst on here and a large mug of tea). Was written by the same guy who writes Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes (who is a bona fides peer of the realm: Baron Fellowes of West Stafford). He won an Oscar for the sreenplay for Gosford Park. What I saw seemed pretty accurate historically - Victoria's mother was a scheming cow.

I mistakenly thought you were closer to the border. That's why I thought Jeffersonville IN, figured it was close to you. Just an idea I if you think it's a good one. I'm up for other ideas.
