<quoted text>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.
What's the date of the Army/Navy game this year - could meet up for a beer at it?

Found it - 27 April. Trouble is I have a potential booking for sailing that weekend, so it will need to be 'wait, out' for a few days on that one.

by 'collar'

El,
very sorry to hear you are having trouble with
the cat, poor little fella.

Nice touch of Spring here just now..

I always feel that our weather is
somehow rationed! lol.

On a more serious note -

"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.
Very eerie indeed....Good Morning Grace.

I tried to reply to you..and others...at round 4 this morning
on my tablet, but not quite got the hang as yet.

It's a very sad conclusion to Pistorius excellent achievements
where we all admired him so much....and of course, sadder yet
that his beautiful girlfriend has had her life extinguished.

Well, life goes on...here comes my newspaper and the kettle is
on....

Have a lovely day Grace.

Morning ER. A friend of mine sang in the BBC Chorus, so I was fortunate enough to be at the Albert Hall for the Last Night in 2000. Magic.

Sunny here today also - and forecast for that tomorrow. Hoping to get the grass cut then - it's the first time since November it's been anywhere near dry enough to do the lawns.

'Morning Quincy...tried to reply in the early hours, cannot
fathom the Tablet as yet..proud of the fact I can actually
access the internet! Took a while.

Yes, as Grace has said, by collar I am referring to a cone.
I was surprised not to see him in one when I collected him,
but considering the cost of the treatment, I think they could have 'thrown one in'....I do have one as it happens and will
put it on him if need be...so far so good. Hate to see him unhappy like this though, can't possibly let him out and he is
not a happy bunny at the moment. I tell him..plenty of time to go out, lol.

That would be a brilliant memory Tony. Cutting the grass in
February? Must be warmer than I thought in Cornwall! What
little grass we have now the patio is covered with slate, we
strim around late April...

<quoted text>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.
lol Franko...it does need better publicity it would appear.

For the living generation of Royals, the Duke of Edinburgh served as a destroyer Captain during the second world war (Royal Navy)..

the Queen served as a ambulance driver in WW11...she was only 18 at the time, and to mention that all laws from Parliament must go by the Queen, and I believe the Prime Minister has a daily audience with her to discuss parliamentary matters. She represents the country in everything she does....her visit to Ireland is a prime example where she won many hearts...the first time a reigning monarch had visited the Republic of Ireland for many years.

Prince Charles....served as a destroyer Captain in the Royal Navy.
Takes a keen interest in farming and conservation.

Prince Andrew....served as a helicopter pilot in the Falklands campaign.

Princess Anne is a Patron of children's charities. Hands on.

the list goes on.....

they are worth the 60 pence a week per household to keep 'em!

Most years it carries on growing (on and off) throughout the winter. Last year was colder than most, so I didn't have to cut until the end of February!

On another subject,

I remember a few folks here, on the thread saying they intended
going to see the movie LINCOLN,
if anyone HAS seen it, I'd be interested
to have your opinion of it.

I saw the movie, and must admit,
was disappointed, perhaps that was due to
all the hype which preceded it..

The company I went with thought the same,
that.. it was a good movie without being a great one.

I had seen JANGO UNCHAINED previously and
THAT was a brilliant movie, I never thought I'd see anyone outshine
DANIEL DAY LEWIS, who is known to be one of the greatest
living actors of our time,

but in the two movies I mention,

Leonardo DiCapri towered over him, acting wise.
IMO.

Funny how it goes!
