No use telling me about her popularity Denny, no offence,
but you won't hear me extolling her virtues.
She did more harm than good in my opinion, much as I feel
sympathy for her nowadays.

Hi Lady Eleanor...
Good for you letting that man of yours know that it is the thought that counts not the dollar value of a gift... and good for him taking Ginger Bailey to the vet for you.. I do hope that everything went well with his surgery..
I made my Pack of wild dogs mad at me last night because I gave them all a worm treatment... I had to practically sit on Miss Josie Wails... but I got the meds down her and I don't have to worry anymore on her behalf.. I decided to treat them all when I saw one of those nasty round worms in Mr. Mips droppings..
It's so easy for them to get infected due to the feral cats that roam all over the neighborhood... and even though Mip was the only one they have shown up in, I figure it's best to treat them all.. Better to be safe than sorry...
I do hope that your day was a really good one and I hope that your night has been peaceful and that all of your dreams were sweet...
Sending you all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
Good Evening Dear Rose....
It has been a very fraught time regarding Ginger Bailey..
the good thing, he is eating but very very sorry for himself.
I am not happy with way he has been left...his head is swathed in
bandages, he has to keep this on until Monday when he goes back
to have his wound checked....my comment when I was handed him
yeserday...'no collar'?...upon reading the post-op notes when I
got home, a collar is available to PURCHASE. Unbelievable.
I have one as it happens, but will see how he goes.
Worming....you are talking my language!...:) I have found a
preparation which worms, prevents fleas, ticks and also ear mites. Now to see if I can get them at cost!
It's such a relief when we have treated all our pets, this bunch are done every three months...so are due in two months time, when I will also treat the stray who seems to have taken up residence....I have advertised him as 'found' on animalsearchuk, but to no avail, he is very good, sleeps in a a sheltered accomodation provided outside, is totally non-agressive towards this lot...

Have a great evening....almost bedtime here now...
My very best wishes to you...<3..xoxoxo

Something kind of irrestible about that kind
of word play, I always find..

On a more serious note -
apparently >

"NIKE [I am the bullet in the chamber] ad campaign,

The Nike ad campaign featuring Oscar Pistorius was swiftly pulled after the crisis broke

"I am the bullet in the chamber" ran the strapline for the Nike advert featuring Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius."

Kind of eerie coincidence how those words were arranged.

Good night El, sleep well.

Hi Franko....
wondering...how much more could the Roayl Princes contribute?
Prince William is employed by the the R.A.F as a helicopter pilot
in Search and Rescue...and expected to fit in public appearances,
while his brother Prince Harry has just finished a tour of Afghanistan.......
More than we can say for the politicians sons.
you are right, th etwo sons have set a new standard I think ... then again maybe I don't know enough about what other royals have done ... maybe it needs to be better publicized?

All I know of the Queen is that she goes around the world, rides in a car and waves to the people ... that doesn't seem like much.

I suppose somewhere along the line most politicians may start off with the best of intentions and as time goes by they either get sucked into the high of greed & power, follow bad advice from the wrong people, or succumb to mental illness and they aging process. Maybe even a combination of all three.
If its supposed to be "....of the people, by the people and for the people" I guess sometimes the collective 'people' need to make their voice heard.
A very good post and totally agree,unfortunately with politicians now it's what the country can do for them rather than the other way round

<quoted text>We tax on the value of the property here in Texas. We have no state tax so many people are moving from high tax states like California and moving to Texas and Florida . I do like you Vat tax in that everyone pays it. 47% of the people pay no federal income tax at all so they don't care how high the tax rate is. The liberals call for a class warfare and say tax the rich because there are very few rich people and lots of lower and middle class voters. The top 5% pau 95% of the taxes. In California top earners pay 60% of their income. They can cut that about 14% by moving to Texas
Thank goodness it's Sunday - just spent 30 mins trying to check out the US taxation system - went to the IRS site, which was a minefield (Lord knows how your politicans navigate around it)! Complex system to an outsider. Worked out that "payroll" tax in the US seems to be like our National Insurance contributions. Did come across this one, which whilst a little simplistic, does explain the situation to a bear of little brain like me!

http://money.cnn.com/2011/04/14/pf/taxes/who_...

Romney's comment about the 47%, whilst correct, gave the impression that this group paid no taxes, which is inaccurate. It was also very damaging for him politically. What I find astounding is that 12.5% of those in the %50-100K group pay no income tax. That would not happen in the UK.

VAT is like your sales tax. Personally, I find it something of a blunt instrument - 20% added to the price of items hits the poorest hardest. For you, there is the facility to claim it back on items you buy when you visit the UK.

<quoted text>Obama is a great politician and a miserable president. He is know for voting present so he is never on the wrong side of an issue. When Bengazi was under attack he told Peneta do do what he had to do and then there was no more contact at all even though the attack lasted 7 hours. Then for 2 weeks he lied to the American people and said it was a spontaneous demonstration over a you tube film. He lied till well after the election. When he was a Senator he said Bush had spent 4 trillion dollars over 8 years. He called it un American and in 4 years he spent 6 trillon dollars. The federal reserve is buying our T bills. We are buying our own debt and printing more and more money. People wonder why gas is so high. A big part is the devaluation of our currency . By law we have to have a budget put forth from the president by a certain time. Obama has never done that and the Democrat controlled senate hasn't put forth a budget in 3 years. The Socialist in Europe have lots of government handouts and high taxes. Our Socialist have lots of government handouts and low taxes. We borrow half of what we spend and neither party want to raise everyones taxes or reduce spending. They want their cake and eat it too
Sorry, for me some of this does not run. You mentioned the budget. All the news sources I have seen over here have pointed out that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has been blocking the budget - even to the extent of teetering towards the financial cliff (which actually was brinkmanship as even they would not have cut off their noses to spite their faces). The Senate alone cannot pass a budget, it needs both Houses. In passing, the developed world is facing a financial crisis unlike any in recent history: all countries are having to borrow like crazy, including the UK. That crisis began in the banking systems whilst Bush was President and Blair/Brown were pratting about in the UK.

Benghazi was unfortunate - but only Fox News seemed to push the line you give. It was only after the attack that the UK foreign office warned Brits to get out - and they are usually very swift to warn our citizens of danger. I think it caught everyone on the hop - Obama included.

On the plus side, he dealt with Bin Laden and he does now have a strategy to get out of Afghanistan - a war that we cannot win (we never have in that country) and into which Blair/Bush rushed without an exit strategy.

I'd agree K. Unfortunately, we have followed the US route with the selection of our politicians: they come out of university (usually) with the ambition to be a politician. Gone are the days when you achieved something in the country before standing for Parliament - now it is a career path. Consequently, to misquote Oscar Wilde's context, they "know the price of everything and the value of nothing". Like you - disillusioned with the whole self-seeking bunch of them.

I do go about three times a year normally a nations game,Army/Navy and an autumn international,but weighing up the cost as I have a fair bit going on shortly and I saw France a couple of years back when we beat them by a fair score.
