Well now, clever lady,
You are on to something here,
I totally agree El,
we ALL *know* by now what he did & that it was wrong and deceitful..
but, he came forward 'eventually' and admitted his faults.
There is something nasty in some folks [a lot, unfortunately] who wallow
in a witch hunt, and like a hungry dog, with a bone -
REFUSE to let go! until the person is trampled into the ground..
I sometimes wonder is it that, in doing so,
they give themselves a psychological boost!
kinda like > 'LOOK at how much better a person *I* am!!'
[their halos tightening on their heads]@!!
Glad you and I see it in the same light Grace.
I mean, granted what he did was wrong, but really,
feelings have reached fever pitch...to a point of hysteria.
Sheep!

Thankful here too Franko.
In Ireland we are never subject to severe
weather extremes!
a little bit of 'this & that' in all seasons!
As you 'may' have read there's a bit of controversy
here at the moment about HORSE DNA being found in
burgers, they had to destroy literally millions of burgers
[ thinks... dern!! wish I coulda had some of those for my dog]
but, anyway,
the jokes are flying since..
one example>>
FRIEND > 'Will you join me in a burger @ Mc Donalds?-
my treat'
FRIEND> Yeah nice one, thanks'
OTHER FRIEND>
'what would you like on it'?
FRIEND>
'A tenner each way'
LOl
LOL Grace. That is actually very funny.

There is a French Chef writing in today's newspaper,
and saying how we, in the UK, are arms raised in horror
at this happening, and yet we eat cute lambs and cows.
Both of which are on an equal footing with the horse.

I got Quorn mince with which to make my Spag Bol this
weekend. It's a start!

Happy Sunday to all!
The problem with Lance was denial! Then he attempted to throw other athletes under the bus! Come on man, own up to what you did!!! We all know about how scandalous the baseball players that testified before Congress became the talk of sports. Yes, there is no doubt Lance created a charity in the war against cancer. That was awesome! The back story there is he soon dumped his wife that stood by him for YEARS, for Sheryl Crowe, who later was diagnosed with breast cancer. Talk about Karma...
On a lighter note, Lady Madonna and Eleanor RIgby will remain classic songs from the Beatles. Love the lyrics...
When I was teaching, above the door to my library, I had one word on a piece of lime green paper, the color of Apple Records...
IMAGINE!- John Lennon
Enjoy your day all, peace.
Happy Sunday Boomer,I do appreciate all that, but time to let
it go don't you think? I don't mean to be flippant when I
say the way people are going on...and on...they are not too far
removed from those who would stone him to death, publically.
How must the man feel, having to tell his son..don't take my
side any more?

Very soothing visual of your choice of wording above your
library door!

What is Quorn mince? Spag Bol, also? I have never heard of those items. Would you be a dear and explain.
Maybe I missed that dish in my travels to the UK.
Thanks.
Here in the USA, there are different producers of horse flesh that they want to market. Sure, the uproar was crazy! Then again, after 3 years in the Far East, I never knew what was in a lot of meals I ingested! All I know, to quote Oliver Twist, "More, sir!"

hahaha 'be a dear' lol
Quorn is a soya product which can be used in dishes which
require beef, or lamb, etc. It is a healthy alternative and
of course cruelty free.
I often made Spaghetti Bolognese using it, and am reverting
to type.
I will go mad with the bay leaves and Parmesan to give extra taste.

(Parmesan cheese)!

Interested to know..where were you in the UK? Was you stationed here?.

Good Afternoon Lady Eleanor...
The new furniture is all in place and I am one happy gal...
I just love it.. The colors are a perfect match to my walls.. It's just plain pretty!!
We are having our last day of sunshine and warmer temperatures today... We will hit the 40's but then tonight the temps are gonna fall and we will be getting hit with a blast of extremly bitter cold.. Our highs predicted for Monday are from 8 degrees to 12 degrees... That means it'll be ZERO and below if we have any wind at all... I am so not looking forward to that so I'm going to enjoy this day as much as possible...
My Silly Daffodils are starting to pop up... just to let me know that Spring is on it's way... and I tell you it can't get here soon enough for me...hahahaha
Sending you all of my best and Warmest wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
Sounds gorgeous Dear Rose...I do love the colour scheme you chose.
Are you all prepared for the big freeze? We are having that kind
of weather right now, in fact, we have been snowed in,not me, I
have been out making a snowman, actually I went out to clear the path
but ended up making a snowman, he isn't finished yet as I ran out of
steam..
Clancy would be out in it all day if he had the opportunity but I am
afraid of his little paws getting frost bite. Lady (the Lab) loved the snow, she would push a snowball around with her nose, and was in her element when it snowed...never imagined I would have a cat as crazy
for it as much as Clancy...very companionable little man he is.
Have a fabulous day and take good care.
Love-n-Hugs..<3

Greetings to Brighteyes, Sir Tally, Cuz Luke, Franko,
Froggie...

{{{Cuz Luke}}} seven minutes away from the start
of 'Call The Midwife'...a new series...it's thanks
to you I found it!...:)

Caught the game between Man U and Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon...Man U were winning until the very
end, when the one American in the Tottenham team scored thrity seconds from the end! Great game for all that although Manchester United needed the points
to keep them at the top of the League.

QUORN vegetarian products are excellent El,
I use them a lot, and they do a wide range
[as you will know] the QUORN mince is great as we
can add ANY flavours we choose..
the only exception here [I find] would be
their sausages, but I'm sure that varies
from person to person..

Here's another joke..

'So, I guess, that would make Lance Armstrong..
a drug peddler'

lol

'Poor Lance'

Good Day Boomer,

That's interesting re the horse flesh they want to
market,
as you may have heard,
HORSE and PIG DNA and were found in what was passing for beef burgers
over here, they are taking a VERY serious view of this..

If one goes to purchase BEEF, that's what one expects..
.. and should honestly get -
not some hidden unspecified ingredients,
would prompt one to ponder 'what else' might be included!
that we dono'about..

PORK, as we know is a serious 'NO NO' in some religions,
so if people unknowingly buy meat with pork derivatives
added ... HOW bad is that!

and far more serious,
if people happened to have allergies to these
'unmentioned' mysterious additions!!!!

the mind boggles!

Anyway,
I see what would be termed as
quality meat here just left behind -
choice sirloin cuts being sold off for a pittance!

why?

because..
suddenly... trust, sadly, has gone!

TKY for that. I don't generally antagonize and I don't bully but I am also not a wallflower. As I said 'hell hath no fury like a Quinn scorned". There are few if any people RW and cyber who I dislike. Who and how many dislike me in either or both worlds remains to be seen.

I remember a few years back there was big controversy with McDonalds frying in like beef oil or something and the Hindus in Europe or maybe Muslims because of it.

There are so many people these days who have issues with food -- for religious reasons, food allergies, gluten/dairy intolerance -- that I find it wholly irresponsible and bad business not to sell exactly what you purport to be selling.

Do I agree with government nutrition mandates? No, but as a diabetic I find them helpful in my food choices and diabetes management. By the same token as I said with all the folks with food issues, it also a good business and marketing strategy to provide the information ...... but accurate information.

Mildenhall and Lakenheath RAF, 70's, 80's and 90's. Just passing thru with temporary duty. Made it to Newcastle for coal, Ely for the cathedral, and Cambridge for the university. Maybe we me in a pub in the Wash. I was there too. Hotel Mildenhall. You bring back memories that I have long forgotten. Thank you.

Grace, thank you for chiming in. We all know that different cultures have different tastes in menus. When in Rome so to speak... My first trip to France I had to try the cold potato soup. I will NOT attempt to spell it. A wonderful dish. Spain had gazpacho, yum; the UK with Sheperds Pie, good and I will go with the traditional fish and chips!

Whereever I traveled, I ate what was local. Good food and bad food and intesinal madness! Gotta do what the people do!

Denny, this one is for you. Navy for four years, we could talk at great lengths. Your time served gives me an idea of your age. Do you remember when the river area of San Antonio was unsafe? I was there in 1973 and you did not go down there after dark.
The North American Spring Fling is taking shape. Will you join us in person or Skype?

Southeast Asia, Cambodia, Laos, and the baby lift in 75. KAL 007, the first GULF WAR, and Bosnia. welcome home my brother.
I refueled aircraft inflight, hence the name "Boomer". Nothing to do with subs... you know what I am saying!
