ER, returning to the Padstow tragedy, it is now clear from the initial MAIB report that the driver of the RIB was not wearing the kill cord (as I suspected - these devices are pretty fail-safe).

An accident that has killed two, maimed two others, traumatised the kids and was totally preventable. Sadly, a similar fatal accident in the Lake District (father & daughter killed) a few years ago had the same cause. When will people learn? We can teach them all they want, but if they don't take on board what the information is, there is nothing we can do.
I just read the article. How very sad. Your last statement is spot on Tony. There's either a lack of common sense or people think they know more than the people who teach. Always worse when there are children involved.

tragic beyond words..
Reminds me of taking chances with 'seat belts ' as I mentioned before.

Morning Tony,
good to see you.
How did you know I hate the seatbelt Grace? I have been ticketed for now wearing. It's my choice and I take the risk. As long as I don't take anyone else with me.

Have a good weekend there lady. What's the plan?

Morning El. Went up to "the Garden" yesterday. The colors were beautiful and I never realized there was more than one variety of tulip. Bonsais are one of my favorite.

Always something new. I love the lakes and water gardens there too. They natural beauty is such that I think no photographer could truly capture it. I'm sure there must be areas in Wales and Ireland filled with just as much natural beauty.

<quoted text>It has been my observation that in the USa people are often very extremely democrat or republican .. not as many are more in the middle and moderate in political views. As a result the attitude seems to be "everything wrong with the country is due to the OTHER party .. MY party does it right and things will be better once MY party is in office'...
I don't like government even when conservatives are in control. The whole purpose of our constitution is to restrain the federal government and give the powers to the state

Personally I do subscribe that theory as I do not identify with either major political party. I believe we need more independents. I consider myself to be very socially liberal as in "how I live my life is none if your damn business if I am hurting you". Same goes for other people - what they do is not business and it certainly isn't.
We do not a believe in the same "god", we do not subscribe to the same principles and lets no be hypocrites. My great disdain for republicans at the moment is their out right refusal to work with the president at the expense of the American people. And they are hypocrites -- they claim the want less gov intrusion in private life but have no problem implementing laws determining who can marry, who can adopt and personal family planning matters. They have no problem jacking up military spending at the expense of mental health care and assistance for the elderly & seriously ill.
We are a highly socially irresponsible country when it comes to caring for our senior citizens. Seniors are far more respected and cared fit in eastern countries than in the US. And the vets coming back from unnecessary wars with all manner of injury, what is being done to help them?
The republicans don't believe in the same thing as Obama so I want them to be against more socialism. I am a libertarian so I want no intrusion into our private lives by government.

12?! Wow! They used to be more localized in the Midwest. These days nature us hitting just about everywhere with full force.

The affected area(s) must not be far from you, are they?

You might be right Grace about the amount of politics discussed, but if that is what folk want to talk about, then so be it.
I like to think there is no censorship in the Kitchen...which incidentally belongs to Everybody.(Post 1)

DID YOU KNOW: of course not

Most seat belt legislation in the United States is left to the states. However, the first seat belt law was a federal law which took effect on January 1, 1968 that required all vehicles (except buses) to be fitted with seat belts in all designated seating positions. This law has since been modified to require three-point seat belts in outboard seating positions, and finally three-point seat belts in all seating positions. Initially, seat belt use was not compulsory. New York was the first state to pass a law which required vehicle occupants to wear seat belts, a law that came into effect on December 1, 1984.

if you will read carefully you will notice that censorship was never suggested , however that a solution to a complaint was suggested..don't tell and no body will know ,,,,,

sounded fair to me .....

Hi Quincy...a nice way to spend a day...and I love Tulips,
always promised myself a trip to Amsterdam in the Spring.
You never can quite capture the beauty on film somehow
can you, but nice as a reminder of the occasion.
You have inspired me to make a move and visit our favourite
gardens here which are Bodnant, the Laburnam Archway should
be in full bloom now, so Monday it is, weather permitting.
