Interesting and valid points. Had not considered the historical influences.
we USA didn't rebel against the Crown and we rebelled against taxes with no voice....

our 1st 7 president were British citizens

German a second language , give thought how unlikely that was , as the hessins did the major fighting against the USA

and that the great Canadian realm is also pining to be French

good points where in one's head maybe

good points huh

Hi Tony...
I bet you make a mean pot of Chili... I bet that Chocolate does work well to enrich that sauce.. and that the garlic gives it an extra zip...
A lot of people like to add spaghetti or macaroni but I like mine with a ton of meat and beans so I leave them out.. it also allows me to make some serious chili burittos and to use the chili as topping for my chili dogs...
Dang talking about it is making me want to put on a big pot today...
I hope that your day has been a good one so far and that your evening will be even better...
Sending you all my best wishes...

Benedict is said to be one of the MOST beautiful,
friendly
gentle, kindly and learned men.. it is possible

altho as Pope, he appeared aloof and austere!

Interesting the public vs private profile

Rained off doing the patio here, was it Krypteia or yourself remarked the weather can change in a heart beat here?!

The sweetest image of your Pack having their treats at bedtime....
they are very lucky to have such a caring owner as yourself Dear
Rose.
I don't have any dogs now, but one time was trained by the Police
to train my German Shepherd, that might sound grander than it actually was, it was a friend who was a Park Police Officer, he trained me to train my dog, within a fortnight and many hours of dedication, my dog was trained to the Police Dog Standard, minus being trained to go for the arm, as it was explained, I would have a lethal weapon on my hands if we went so far.
I managed to reach that level without the aid of a bark collar....:)
In all honesty my friend took me in hand because until that point, it was the classic 'who is taking who for a walk'..that sort of thing, but then he got delusional and fancied his chances at training my Great Dane...we didn't progress very far with that one.
That was all way back when..had many rescues since then, all happy to be just good companions...if they 'sat' and 'down' then that was good enough for me.
Anyway, enough of me, lol..
Have a great day my friend....<3
What a lovely story about unconditional friends of the 4 legged kind ... love reading this kind of material!...

I'm sure there is a lot more good reading but I'm having difficulty keeping up, LOL ...

Lady El ... hope all has been well with you across the pond and all stateside with the others ... Wishing yall a great Wednesday ... those stateside, we spring forward this Sunday, the 10th of March ... My Lantana's are in full bloom, my cacti in full bloom, my pencil cacti are green once again, the purple jew (that's what they're called) are purple once again, the other outside plants are green and healthy ... the pomegranate tree is still barren and the other trees are showing signs of green life as well ... spring has sprung! We had no winter again this year and for that I am thankful ... the sale of the property adjacent to mine when through on Saturday at 1720 when all papers were signed for LESS than the asking price ... the family law attorney brother and the real estate sister GAVE that property away to me and now Jax and PoohBear have their very own yard! Closing is on 4/5/13 ... I'm very happy of the outcome in that sale & transaction ... Wishing all here a very pleasant day ... Have fun & enjoy life! Peace & love ~ FC <3 ...

I'm beginning to miss the Pope already! Isn't it funny how
sometimes we learn of another's better qualities when it is too late. A saving grace in this instance, is he is still around.
Glad you mentioned all of this Grace, far better to think highly
of someone than otherwise.
LOL as to how people might see you...I'm not commentating on that,
been in enough trouble already this week! haha
But I will say that I don't see you as either of those!....:)

Flower....so glad to see you in the kitchen..swiping a duster over
the best seat at the table..and brewing a fresh cup of coffee for
y'all...have missed you more than you would think. Your garden/yard
sounds a real splash of colour, must be warmer there than over here, although yesterday was a bonus, with temps as high as 60F..lol. Much as I love the Winter, it has taken it out on a lot of folk...but, Spring is on the way...it's looking good.
Couldn't help but notice you appear to have acquired the property next door....how interesting, glad it all went through to your satisfaction Flower.
Sending my love across the pond, EL <3..

I still have not had the chance to see the movie Lincoln....but a few facts emerged connecting President Lincoln to my home city of Manchester,
Lancashire, England which I only recently became aware of.

I wondered if anybody might care to read about it, although it is a tad lengthy.

http://www.manchester.com/features/manchester...

I copied this extract...

"And so those that could afford the fare made their way to Liverpool and thence to a new life in the land of the free, the truly free (when compared to the feudal society still prevalent in Britain at that time).

With them they took a name - Manchester. Because Manchester, like Lincoln's brave new world, stood for freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of trade and freedom to aspire.
It seems, as the old saying goes, that `you can take people out of Manchester but you can't take Manchester out of the people'."
