Me, I'm not a sports minded person so I just kick back and listen to those of you who are. I would nothing to contribute. We had a March Madness pool chart in the CU branch ----- I thought it was a football pool!!!
I'm happy to just learn something and listen to you rugby fans discuss the weekend game.
....now back to my beagle's latest antics.........
I can't claim to be a rugby fan really, that was a one-off
match I felt compelled to watch...more of a football fan and
that is only a recent development. England and San Marino
are playing as I speak, but I can't get into it.
Too funny about the March Madness pool chart...:)

He's a house dog (plus back yard). if he gets out front he will run off and explore the neighbours houses.(has snuck out a few times, we had to go searching) He also does not know to stay off the road to avoid cars.
Had to laugh at your description of your dog Franko...he does
sound a good natured soul, had a GS one time would welcome
anybody in the house, but the mere fact he was there was a deterrant to anybody with intent.

Sadly, the trip to the USA is off, for this year at least. Have just got back from the doc's after the second heavy dose meds failed to clear up the throat infection. As I suspected he might, he wants me to see a specialist, so can't make any plans and should it get sorted, the ski season in Colorado will be over, which was one of the reasons for the visit. Oh well, there's always next year.
Saw the weather conditions in Cornwall on Sky News this morning Tony, and this evening also. Utterly dreadful..terrible about
the lady whose house collapsed around her.
Really bad in Northern Ireland too, we are very lucky just here touch wood, although just a few miles away they are having it rough.
Sorry to hear your throat infection is hanging on...no doubt you
will be taking anti-biotics, but have you considered Manuka Honey?

Completely forgot to mention what it was I intended to tell you
before!
Have been buried in genealogy today and knocked over a brick wall by finding my Gtx5 Grandfather.....a Landsman on the HMS Syrius in
1804. That led me to delve into the history of the HMS Syrius which quite honestly I found fascinating along with the history of that time.
What pluck they had in those days of old....

I understand the difference between civil and criminal charges. What I don't know is whether a civil charge and a criminal charge can be brought under US law as it can in the UK. We have had a quite high profile case here where the criminal charge failed, but because of the rules of evidence, a civil charge stuck - wondered if it was the same in the States.

Yes indeed,'Collies' ARE particularly

In most survey they always come in on top re intelligence,
followed closely by the poodle!

You spoke so tenderly of your dog..
and I can see clearly why you cannot have another..
pity really..
as you seem SO tuned in to 'how a dog ticks'
which is a rarity, I know!
Also,
be always proud of your birthday..
[as we all should be]-
considering
it is the day [chosen by fate] YOU entered this world -
and that day will ALWAYS be special..
Thanks for a lovely post GN.

We're surviving that rubbish conditons down here!

Have had two loads of antibiotics - the second batch mega strong - so the GP has decided to send me to the specialist. Think he may have throat cancer on his mind, which Manuka Honey probably won't fix. I'm sick of wincing every timne I swallow, which has gone on since the second week in January.

HMS Syrius - frigate that was sunk in 1805. Landsmen were the third level of crew - first was Able Bodied, second was Ordinary Seamen and they were third. Sometimes called "waisters (sic)" because most of their duties were in the waist (middle of the ship), they had little knowledge of how to sail the vessel and worked the guns or acted as boarding party members on an assault on another vessel. Try to check if he was a Quotaman (his dates fit)- can tell you lots about them as part of my dissertation (my MA is in Naval History). Best source to follow up on him is Kew (Public Records Office), which also has an online facility - type PRO in a search engine.

We think life was rough for them - actually they generally had a better diet than agricultural labourers of the time.

As a kid, we had a Cairn Terrier like that - would haqve licked a burglar to death! Beagles, even part, are prone to wander. Lovely natues, but no brains.

it is my understanding that OJ Simpson was first criminally charged (found not guilty) and when that failed he was civilly charged and he lost that.

Take good care Tony. Hope they quickly determine what ails you and you're feeling better soon. Be well and stay well. Hope next year another trip across the pond will be planned.

I think this has already been answered, but yes same concept here. One an be held both criminally an civilly liable for the same action. Different burdens of proof and "punishments".

And some of the people in politics and other legal areas are often business associates and buddies... as well as poeple they donated big money to for their campaigns.

A system might be designed to be fair but all systems can be manipulated or circumvented.
Kind of belies the concept of "may 100 guilty go free lest an innocent man be convicted". Also explains why so many distrust the system.

Took the words out my mouth Tony. Yep, the beagle is a licker and there have many instances I've run down the street trying to catch or find her. One reason I don't trust her off the leash: once the nose takes her she just keeps going like the energizer bunny. She wouldn't come back.
