<quoted text>Good morning El. I know unions have done some good for the working man but they were far to powerful in the 70's. England was in constant shut down from one strike or another. Maggy got rid of government ownership of industry too. She was a free market capitalist :)
'Morning Denny.

Such as my views are, they are based on personal experience.

I salute the Unions myself, due to previously mentioned reason.

As for the mines. At that time we had coal fires in England.
Suddenly, we were having delivered poor quality coal...it was
terrible, mind you, it was cheaper than that mined from our own
country, and sod the fact that where it came from, South Africa, the health and safety there was that of the middle ages. Plus, to avoid paying tax on the coal from S.A., it was shipped here, the ship docked in Scotland, then went back out to sea again to avoid tax....now I call that very devious indeed.
Ironically, the biggest users of coal were the railways and the power stations. The railways are now electric and the power stations are all gas and nuclear.
They used to burn coal to make gas, but that has been banned now.

SPEECH BY NIGEL FARAGE, UKIP














"I am the Government's Worst Nightmare. I am a White, Tax-Paying, God fearing English man. I am a hard working Brit and I work long hours to earn a living.


I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others. I believe in British products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not to some governmental functionary, to share with others who don't work!

I think owning a home doesn't make you a capitalist; it makes you a smart Brit. I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it. Join in with the majority!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are fellow Brits like Freddy Flintoff and Winston Churchill and I know I've missed a few thousand!!!!!

I don't hate the rich. What I hate is the way they always manage to avoid paying proper taxes. I don't pity the poor, I just hate the way they are always moaning that they are hard done by!!

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

This is ENGLAND.....We like it the way it is and even more so the way it was...so stop trying to change it to look like some other socialist country! If you were born or legally migrated here and don't like it... you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the House of Commons, the seat of our biggest problems.

I want to know where the "Do Gooders" get their money from, and why are they always part of the problem and not the solution?
Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what race, colour or creed you are. And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driving licence. I think it's good....

I dislike those people trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause....Get a job and support yourself and your family!

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

I believe the Union Jack flag should be allowed to be flown anywhere in the United Kingdom !

If this makes me a BAD Brit, then yes, I'm a BAD Brit. If you are a BAD Brit too, please forward this to everyone you know....

We want our country back! My Country.....

I hope this offends all illegal aliens.

My great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Boer War. My grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in World Wars 1&2. I watched as my friends died in Sierra Leone Bosnia, & Desert Storm. Our sons and daughters watched & bled as their friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq.

None of them died for the Afghanistan and Iraq Flag. Every Briton died for the British flag.

At one high school, foreign students raised a Middle East flag on a school flag pole. British students took it down. Guess who was expelled...the students who took it down.

West London high school students were sent home, because they wore T-shirts with the Union Jack flag printed on them.

What is going on?? What idiots do we have in authority?? Enough is enough.

This message needs to be viewed by every Brit; and every Briton needs to stand up for Britain . We've bent over to appease the Brit-haters long enough. I'm taking a stand.

I'm standing up because of the millions who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the British flag.

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message. IT IS NOT !

Britons, stop giving away Your RIGHTS !

THIS IS OUR COUNTRY !

This statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration !

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

1. Get a sponsor !
2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!
3. Live by OUR rules ! Dress as we Britons Do
4. Get a job !
5. Pay YOUR Taxes !
6. No Social Security until you have earned it and paid for it !
7. Find a place to lay your head !

If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !

We've gone so far the other way... bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

WAKE UP BRITAIN !!!

Hi Dear Rose...glad you got the pics, had a moment or two of panic there as I couldn't find the folder I had hidden them in.
Did I tell you we moved the roses which were blocking the lower part of the patio..two are not looking so healthy, could be due to the extremely cold weather we have been having...but it's bucking up, yesterday was a scorching 50, hahaha
Am starting to feed the roses as from this morning and will be giving them a good drenching too. No sun today so can water the leaves also.
I love the rose Peace, one of my favourites, that and Just Joey,
if these two don't make it, will replace with those two.
Have a wonderful day and love to you and to the pack. xoxoxo
Hi El,
I'm so jealous! I would like to see your beautiful yard!!!!! One of our favorite rose is "Take Flight" It is a small bud bright yellow. We had planted it in memory of all the Airforce buddies that boomer has lost. It is not a climber but the last two years it reached over 12 feet high. Hope you and P are well. We just had our first 80 degree day here and it was amazing! Lots of love to you and P.

Afternoon El,talking of coal there are the odd houses that have open fires and still burn coal and logs and what a lovely smell walking home on a winters evening when you get a whiff now and again,such a homely smell well in my mind anyway,lol..
As for unions well I joined the army at Sixteen straight from School,no unions for us,and we had to do the jobs when people went on strike no representation for us or extra pay..When I look at the likes of Bob Crow you can imagine what I'd like to do..lol

Hello there Brighteyes,
I really did think I had already sent...rectifying that immediately and sending today.
That is really amazing that your rose 'Take Flight' would grow
t such a height even though not a climber. As though it were
reaching for the stars! Sounds a beautiful rose.
Absolutely fine here BE and thanks for asking and hope this finds
you and Boomer well and enjoying life.
Much love...

'Afternoon Krypteia...that brings back pleasant memories of home actually, nice.
As for unions, I have never in my life joined one, but I recognize the need for them in the beginning.
It was funny yesterday, no sooner had I read yours about the UKIP when
I had an e-mail forwarding the speech as above from my friend in the UK....I just posted it for the benefit of our cousins across the pond really so they would know what we are talking about.
I am not saying I agree with it all btw. Oh, and my friend's daughter-in-law is Muslim!

Not my cup of tea Denny. To be honest.

I knew nothing about them until Krypteia mentioned them,
have to say they are not as extreme as I originally thought.
No, I will stick with the Liberal party....:)

<quoted text>I have been fine but I was missing our debates :)What do you think about Obama wanting to lower standards for people to buy a home. That is what broke the market to begin with.
How does that saying go "those who cannot learn from history are destined to repeat it"?

I did not hear and can't think of a worse idea. The gov just did a major overhaul of mortgage regulations which go into effect in January. Lots of hoops on both sides. Let the market figured itself out. It's a nice idea but not everyone can or should own a home (sorry if that puts a cramp in your R/E business :-)

Hi Lady Eleanor...
I fell in love with the Peace rose when I was just a little girl... My grandmother had them planted in front of the porch at her house.. It always smelled wonderful sitting on that porch...
What are the Just Joey roses like? I really enjoyed those pictures and some day my friend I will find a way to share pictures with you and the rest of my garden loving friends...
Our high today made it up to 86 degrees but it didn't rain.. it was just humid... Gone from winter to summer in a week.. It's just plain nuts...
We have a pretty strong storm ( According to The Radar) headed at us as I type.. It should be getting here by early morning..
I hope that I will be asleep when it gets here.. and I really hope that I can sleep through it..
My insomnia has been pretty bad this past week and today I guess it caught up with me because I got up at 9:30AM walked the pack came in had a cup of coffee and tried to get started on my day... I did not manage to get anything accomplished... I was so tired.. I fell asleep in the recliner and didn't wake up till 6:45PM...
That is not like me at all so I was really surprised when I looked at the clock..
I intend to get the pack walked here in a few minutes then I am going to go to bed...
I can't believe it but I am still feeling like I could sleep for a week..
I hope that your roses will recover.. They do get a bit picky about where they want to live...
:o)
If I had the enegry I'd go out and transplant those Dianthus before the rains get here so that they would be watered in... but the truth is my hands and the rest of my body for that matter are in no mood for my bright ideas...
;o)
OK that's it for me.. You take care.. Sending You and Yours all of my best...

NO dog can 'REALLY' be trusted, it must be said!

The other day I bought fire wood,
the kindly young man..on seeing i was
old enuf' to be his Mom..
offered to bring them to my car..
I accepted with gratitude but asked him especially

to leave them
by the car door & I'd do the rest ..
as, Ali, the dog, was a fearful WATCH DOG..
and very sensitive to strangers approaching my car.

He thanked me,
and went on to tell me his workmate,
last week, was putting firewood in a car
when the dog inside took a snap at his wrist,
clenching it deeply
and drawing blood!

Consternation!!!!!

ALL off to emergency dept pronto!!
owner stayed & paid ALL medical costs...
victim was agreeable the dog needn't be put down.

"VERY" understanding of him, I must say!

Was it your own pet rabbit Quincy, it's only nature sadly,
but I am sorry to hear it. It's not a pleasant experience,
the rabbit would die quickly I am sure.

It has to be the weather Rose, that is such an extreme increase in
temps, difficult to adjust to that I would think (not that we have
that problem over here) lol..go with what your body tells you and
rest up, you must need it. I truly hope that by now you are feeling more rested and energized.
Am coming in late today, had a million things to do, not saying I did them all, but I did empty and clean out the fridge/freezers something I have intended to do for a while, changed the beds and etc.
Will take it easier tomorrow.
I was sorry that the videos didn't turn out, that they arrived merely as photos, I have an idea on how to get round that.
Feel better soon....:)
Love-n-Hugs...<3
