<quoted text>Thanks El,yeah that last minute goal was a bit spectacular alright kept us in,lol,just looking forward to England tomorrow..
The Federal government will spend 15 billion more this year than last year and the democrats call this a 85 billion dollar cut. Obama was on TV with a row of police behind him as props giving a laundry list of all the dire results of no meat inspectors longer lines at the air ports, teachers being laid off all because they are reducing the amount of growth in spending. We will still spend more but they call that a cut. I am amazed at the ability of politicians being able to lie without the media calling them on it. The media is in the tank for liberals :(

Spring you say Grace? I woke up to several inches of snow. Apparently the groundhog was wrong - winter is still upon us here in the Midwest.
Have a nice weekend and enjoy your lovely wearher.
Indeed! I wouldn't wonder!

Altho' it's Spring,

It's cold enough here too for a shower or
two of snow/sleet.,,
but frosty nights make sun filled days.

<quoted text>Thanks yuo Grace ...
When I was younger I never knew about the concept of a "wake" but now that I have found out about it, I feel this is a good, thing ... a way to bring thoughts back to the positive and to bring closure, and a chance for those who all knew the deceased to perhaps find some comfort in each other as well.
I couldn't agree more, Franko,
I was just saying so.. the other night.
to a friend -
the idea of a wake is psychologically VERY
beneficial, first honouring the deceased
in their own house 'there's something special
about that'

AND

as you say, a gathering in of friends: neighbours:
and relatives, to laugh, cry,'wander down memory
lane' tell stories, each one different,
of special memories of the deceased
loved one.

All told, a wonderful idea.

my dad asked the same thing... when his entire family was sent to a concentration camp.. because his MOM was a teacher and his Dad was a aircraft worker and simply because the rest were home ....

now my MOM was a little luckier she only had a Mussolini

as I recall Britain/France said the same thing to Hitler

do you know what they did??? NOTHING sat and watched
That's my point....we pick and choose who to 'help' and then try to make it about the citizenry who are oppressed. The Iraqis did not ask for anyone's help. I wasn't around, but didn't some the Europeans under Hitler ask for international assistance?

<quoted text>I don't understand why you keep harping on about this, needless to say I didn't mean that ALL the general public are criminals, but rather, Once Upon A Time, criminals came under the category of just the general public. As is the case illustrated here by Grace, one minute a member of the general public, next, a 'hero' of the Paralympics, followed by a criminal...or suspected criminal.
I hope I have managed to clear that up....:)
I realize that Texas have their own way of dealing with things also....
What was I harping on? I must have misunderstood something since I came in the midst of a conversation between you & Denny.

I steadfastly disagree with Denny on guns. Every opportunity he has, he touts gun laws, concealed carry, and makes the 2nd Amendment sound like a carte blanch absolute right to have a gun....which it isn't and doesn't.

I thought his remark about about the 'general public' excluded himself from the category and suggested everyone else in a criminal, therefore he has every right to shoot someone.

As far as the Pistorius (sp?), I have not commented on that as I have not been following any of it so I have nothing to say.

I can't begin to imagine even with the stories shared throughout my life. The provisions in the US were nothing compared to the goings on in Europe. I have no idea why the President waited. Need to brush up on my history.

You have more than one? I recall your son was seriously ill with croup was it? I hope he is now fully recovered and doing all the things kids do these days.

I agree with you about the media Grace, the price they pay for being a 'celeb' hard on the families too.
I dread to think of him being imprisoned...but then again, a life was taken....
If only we could hibernate like the bears!

So does that mean just because you 'think' your neighbor is amassing weapons you can break into his house and kill him first ?

I tend to believe that some people do in fact have a gift. Label it what you will. But it's intuition or energy or awareness. It has been said that humans only use a small fraction of the brain. Perhaps some can tap into it more than others.

No ESP in the psychic hotline sense but in the sense that some have a gift the rest may not.

At least it's beautiful and without the wind 27 degrees (-2.7C) didn't feel too bad.

<quoted text>Hello Grace,of course it would be something you would have to live with for the rest of your life I agree with you,the problem is there is no real deterrent or justice as such when caught.
To be far the Americans don't fanny around at least when they give a punishment you get a punishment the problem I have is the bleeding heart brigade making excuses for them,you know well they hard a hard life,no father,nothing to occupy their minds and so and making it feel like it's your fault they broke into your house.
The thing is what I got I worked and payed for a no toe rag is going to enter my place and take,it might sound to you I'm being big or whatever but I honestly have no problem hurting anybody trying to take..
Anyway hope you have a good day babes and hope Ireland will do ok this weekend..xx
I would not be so worreid about things they can take, it's not worth risking a life over that.

The bigger fear, and the one referenced in the Pistorious case, is that home invasion can result in phsical violence, rapes and murder. And South Africa apparently has a very bad situation of home invasoins involving violence these days.

That represents a smaller portion of all break ins but it is the fear of what harm might be done that can provoke a defence with force.

he's inside a bathroom, nowhere to go .. what does it matter?

the point being, that the girlfriend, if it was her, would answer and he would no he has it dealing with an intruduer. No answer or an answer from someone other than his GF, and he knows he does have an intruder.

This is the flaw I see in the scenario ... he had TIME because of this and a chance to verify what;s what ... a shooting would more likely occur if they were in a face to face confrontation ....

Any sailing in the offing?
Still catching up - the boat is ashore at the moment for repairs and anti-fouling. Already fully booked for the Round the Island Race, have a training weekend in April for the crew and a teaching course at the beginning of May, so the work is starting to arrive however slowly. However, holiday time before that - hope to be in the States in another month.

'Assumption' isn't good enough, Denny
what about common dialogue?
ie.
to the burglar
'I have a gun here and if you don't get the *ell
out of my house now -
or give yourself up -
I'll shoot'
that would be 'some' kind of fair chance to give
anyone.
Hope you'll excuse me for saying
NO wonder guns ' been have been' and 'are getting so many
folks into trouble 'over there'
Interesting that armed police and the military have to shout a warning before they open fire, but ordinary members of the public don't?

I cannot for the life of me believe Oscar's story. He knew his girlfriend was in the house. He went off to find his gun, came back and fired through the door. Wtf? Shades of O J Simpson in my mind - the bloke had a record of violence towards women. Now we'll have to await the trial in June, but celebrity seems to have a different set of laws to ordinary folk.
