<quoted text>Morning El,yep a superb game and running rings round Inter Milan was unbelievable they were lucky they didn't concede more goals to be honest,it was unfortunate that Bale got yellow carded,I thought his foot gave way and fell but the ref booked him for diving but I suppose in the penalty area that's what he saw,now he's banned from the next game..
Now rugby all weekend end to look forward to,I put a five pond bet on England to beat Italy by certain amount of points..
Found an update on the Rooney 'situation' and Fergie said that we have his word that Wayne Rooney is staying at Manchester United.
He wants the two newspapers who ran the story to apologise.
Of more interest to yourself Krypt...Jermain Defoe is on video saying he thinks that Bale is like Ronaldo...speaks very highly of him.

Morning everyone here,

Rainy today, you know that soft rain..
but in between there's a nice touch
of Spring.
My son is in Australia doing an album,
and says he can't get used to the heat! lol

El,
Have you any idea when the British version
of THE VOICE is beginning?

Ours is half way through, and to date,
nothing special about it..

I enjoyed the British version last year
and thought Tom Jones was ideal, as a judge.

Again you are a wealth of knowledge Tony. It is also interesting how the history we were taught in school is so watered down from what happened.

Good morning El. I must have had my lucky shoes on yesterday. I won $100 at one builder lunch and won a bottle of wine at a cocktail party later that day :)

depend if you stand inboard or outboard Capt..

The result was mutual disaffection and a persecution of the Puritans, particularly by Archbishop William Laud,... cast the Puritans out of the Church of England.

Must admit I was of the same opinion as Quinn...a lot of sources would have you believe that they left because of religious persecution..in fact, I was watching a programme only the other night on the tv., Who Do You Think You Are..when actress Ashley Judd discovered an ancestor was one of the Pilgrim Fathers, but
he himself was imprisoned presumably for his beliefs prior to going to America, in fact she was shown the cell, and the plaque above denoting his imprisonment.
Also Tony, I learnt elsewhere that if those who had broken away from the Church of England did not attend serves on Sundays and Holy Days, they would be fined a considerable amount of money.
All which points to persecution?
Appreciate your comments on those matters. Thanks...
Indeed, fines were imposed, starting in 1559 under the Act of Uniformity of Elizabeth's reign and going on until 1650 under Cromwell. However, these were aimed specifically at Roman Catholic families, not at puritans. The fear was Catholicism as many plots arose against Elizabeth sponsored by RC sumpathisers. You must remember that at the time the Pilgrim Fathers left for America, Puritans were still part of the C of E albeit harried by James who hated them as Scottisn Presbyterians had been the bane of his life in his younger days as King of Scotland.

As to imprisonment, without knowing the details of a particular case, I can't comment. Puritans were imprisoned, but generally for going against the King, not because of their religion. That is not to say there weren't examples of persecution, but it would be more a matter of excluded from court, public office, military and church positions etc.

Be a little cautious of what the TV tells you - some programmes are very good historically, some are not always of the greatest accuracy.

Quite right about Laud's persecution of Puritans, although I can't recall him casting them out of the Church of England. However since he did not become Archbishop of Canterbury until 1633, 13 years after the Pilgrim Fathers left, he played no part in their initial departure.

It may be that both you and ER are mixing up the Mayflower with the Griffin, which sailed for America in 1633 and again 1634 and had on board Anne Hutchinson for the latter journey, although I can find no record of her being previously imprisoned. Subsequent settlers to America, particularly after the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 (he went for the Puritan jugular so to speak!) did flee persecution, which leads to the assumption that the first settlers also did.

info:

The Mayflower passengers were mostly from the English counties of Kent, Essex and Lincolnshire. Religious persecution exacerbated their flight to America

apologies, got the Holland part a little short... England-Holland-England-Americ a

The Pilgrim's journey to America began in 1608 when they were forced to leave their native England for Holland. Their Puritan religious beliefs were in conflict with those of England's Anglican Church. As the Anglican Church and the monarchy of King James I were one, the Puritan's opposition could be interpreted as treason; consequently, they felt it prudent to leave the country.

By 1620, the Puritan's experience in Holland had gone sour and they returned to England with the objective of making passage to America.

It was a lovely surprise to see you here last evening Paise, I
was in a mad rush as I had got held up getting back from the
Vets so it was action stations with about five minutes to spare before the match started...
We are fine here thanks for asking, and I sincerely hope that your husband has made excellent progress and that you are both well and
enjoying life after the ups and downs. Winter has not been too kind but I realize it could be much worse judging by the reports of the weather conditions over the Winter period in the US. Puts everything in perspective. We are in for more cold weather over here but all prepared and looking forward now to Spring.
How is the landscaping coming along, still busy? Ground manageable?
Make yourself at home here my friend, some freshly made muffins
over there...coffee is always on the go!...
I hope your match went as you wished!
Winter over here has been a bear! And we're not landscaping yet because the snow cover won't go away. We've had a major flood, in which the house did wonderfully, we stayed here high and dry, fearing no power outage, now that we have a wood burning stove installed.
Hubby is completely healed, thank you. He got the rest of the insulation sprayed in this Winter once his customers were tucked in for the season. I've been taking care of the grandbabies two days a week. One daughter babysits for the other daughter, but she has school 2 days a week, so I cover those days for both of them. Highlight of my week, many times.
My mom's had a heck of a time of it, but today is in relatively decent health, considering. Much to be thankful for, life is good.
I do hope you and the Mr. are enjoying the days, your family and your little beloved friends on four legs.

Do you know how much water they carried with them? None. They carried beer :)

Not so in the case of the Mayflower, don't know about the Griffin, but it was quite usual to carry beer as it didn't go off as quickly as water. Everyone thinks the Mayflower left from Plymouth - we even have the "Mayflower Steps" in the city and many US tourists come to see them. Not quite accurate...

They originally sailed from Southampton with Dartmouth as their last port of call. However, a storm forced them into Plymouth, where they spent one night at the Greyfriars gaff (now the Plymouth Gin distillery) before setting off again. Unfortunately, they could not top up their water in Plymouth as it was contaminated by cholera. Thus, they called in to Newlyn (beside Penzance) to top up. Thus, all the furore about Plymouth is just a clever marketing exercise!

Thanks for raising that point Denny as otherwise we would not have known the reason why. It must have been so daunting for them not knowing how they were going to be received once they set foot on dry land...those who survived the journey that is.

It was a well played game, Krypteia's team were playing Inter Milan and they won hands down.
Such great news about your husband Paise, and also about your Mom, glad to hear she has got on top of whatever it was ails...not the best time to be under the weather literally, so a relief to you I am sure.
Sounds like you have been with those little ones, a blessing that the landscaping had to be put on hold!...Hopefully things are warming up by now.
Am off to town early this morning, so I will make this short this time. Really very good to be in touch with you once more.
