Let's peacefully agree to differ here, El ..
and I must remember..
If 'Ali' my lab/collie dog ever bites anyone,El..
I'll tell the authorities

'just cop on, she didn't mean it'
Anyway ..
more importantly....
Tony's news was upsetting.. tonight
but I'm sure he'll be ok...
Good Night El..
Good Night, all....
I don't feel very peaceful about it Grace, at all.

I'm asking myself what on earth are you going on about
comparing your dog 'Ali', the Lab/Collie cross, with a
world class sportsman?

For what it's worth, I would also give the dog the benefit of
the doubt, they are usually provoked imho, and after all,
biting is their defence mechanism. Unless they are rogue dogs,
in which case, or badly trained, different altogether.

But as for the football player, I think his team manager is showing a great deal of common sense in dealing with this unfortunate spontaneous gesture by arranging for a course of anger management, hopefully it won't quell his passion for the game.

This is a team I support, and it would be devastating if the star
player would be dismissed on account of this, when efforts to resolve his actions are in place.

To clear something up, El I wasn't referring
to only my dog - but dogs in general.
just using Ali as an example.
the strict law is..

if a dog bites, no matter how wonderful,
family pet, or prize dog.. or other, that dog is 'put down'..

If a man human bites, a different rule applies,
granted a human cannot be 'put down'
but in this case the next best thing
when a person behaves in such an uncivilised way,
might
be that .. he lose his job.

I didn't want this to turn into an argument,
as I said previously, El..
it is why I said we should peacefully agree to
differ.

It is just a matter of each one having
a different opinion...

I'm sorry you don't see it like that..

I agree with everything you say PFfff..except I do not regard the
surviving young man as not being able to cope with life...
I certainly don't condone what they did...just feel that he is the only one answerable and that it was out of character.
Hardly good timing on my part to show any sympathy, feelings still running high, and I never could understand people who forgave those
who took the lives of their loved ones during the periods we had the numerous attacks over here, but somehow I feel there was a world of difference in their premeditated attacks and the one in Boston.
IMO people who are able to "cope" will Never destroy another - in Any way, shape or form.
the world owes us nothing, but rather we owe it to ourselves to show that we belong.

sympathy and pity are only words that allow for excuses for someone who commits such violent, senseless acts. and in my view, they do not belong here.
but that being said, being able to forgive, every negative aspect in life, is something that one may have to do in order to find peace "within" himself.
and in my view, That is coping....

Thanks PFfff, but the friends and family I have around are a great support group in themselves, especially as four other members of the sailing club are battling the big C at this time - some of the jokes are positively ghoulish!

Dearest El ... I understand you took a fall in the garden ... hope you are on the mend yourself even as you take the time to check on others ... speaking of dog bites, I think, in Texas ---> the first dog bite is free, the second bite the dog is put down ... State Law ... unless it's changed since 2005 since I quit practicing ... Lots of things have changed since then ... I still take CLE (Continuing Legal Education) every couple of years to keep my license up to date but I don't recall any of that in discussion ... I stand corrected, if so ... Hope you and P are well and well wishes yall's way and the kittens way, too! Love always, FC <3 ...
'Morning Flower...
it's a beautiful day here, cool, but the sun is shining and
I have just thrown together a light picnic to take to the beach,
it will be a Bank Holiday in about a fortnight, that is when the
tourists descend, so thought we would enjoy it while it is quiet
for an hour. With a bit of luck, the rain will keep off, we had
a shower this morning.
I never cease to be surprised...didn't know you had studied Law,
well good for you for keeping up to date with it, oh and the law
on dog bites is pretty much the same here.
My knee is still a bit of a concern, really should get it x-rayed I know...darn cat jumped on it earlier in the Summer House, I will have to cut that cat's food intake down, he must weigh a ton, hahaha
Wishing for a lovely day for you and the pups....Love-n-Hugs..xx

Good morning across the pond, Lady El ... so happy you are getting out and the weather is cooperating in order so that you are able ... Yes, you simple must get the knee checked out ... Already had the left one replaced, titanium cobalt, steel derivative ... the neck has a plate and screws in it ... all kinds of bells and whistles go off at the airport and I am quickly summoned to some remote area of the airport, lol ... I pull out the two cards from the 2 surgeons to show where the hardware is located on my person, I get the eye rolls, they'd rather frisk me, lol
Yes, I went to school, it seemed like forever, working 40 hour week for 10 years at a very prominent Insurance Company who allowed me to go to school, encouraged it and paid for some of my schooling AND took 12-15 hours of college a semester ... so NO, I DID NOT stay home on the Saturday night to watch Saturday Night Live, LOL ... cracks me up when people ask me, "Don't you remember this or that of SNL?" ... I say, "No" ... they don't get it, lol ... Back then I had a photographic memory and was book smart ... these days, well ---> not so much, lol ... I think age has a little bit to do with that, one might say, I must say, ha! Anyway, civil/corporate/insurance industry was my area of expertise ... Not much to write home about ... it's 0700 here ... Finally, the pups and I got a whole night's worth of sleep since 4/11/13 ... Now, THAT is cause for celebration! How about a cup of tea ... I'll pray the knee gets better and hear of your trip to the beach at a later time ... Best wishes for a lovely day! Much Love ~ FC <3 ...

'Afternoon Grace....just made a fresh brew..and as always your
name is on the pot!

Where's the harm...remember?

Seriously, in my heart I know it was a shocking thing to
do, brings the game into disrepute and all, can only hope
that it doesn't catch on! It puts the Manager and owners
of the club into a difficult position, it must do, anyway
it is being handled, he won't get off too lightly....

Not worth falling out over Grace....

Hope you are having a great day...
