I've been fortunate to have a family who shared a lot of stories and family history. Perhaps that was also a benefit if my mom being the youngest of seven with the next feat being 11 years older than her. Lots of tales to tell.
It certainly helps the cause when family is forthcoming in that
manner, quite the opposite in my family, people were reluctant
to part with any information..then all of a sudden they are not
there to ask..but in doing genealogy I have 'met' living family
via family history sites and also put two and two together with
the aid of bmd certificates. So learning has been one surprise
after another.
I read only yesterday of something which would be personal to
yourself, so please look out for an e-mail when I will put you
in the picture.

see how thoughtful I am, saving you that farewell speech...
again! hehe
hope you having a good day Sir Tally and keeping well.
tell in my thoughts what a very English stance from a commoner ...The woman, a 48-year-old mother of two named Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, later said she was trying to talk them down and keep them from hurting anyone else, especially children. Why did she put herself on the line when so many others stayed away?

hope the Queen expresses good wish to her

Enjoy the heat...while you can.

I heard Jack Frost is planning to fight back
When his weather comes!!

El,
I was out all afternoon in the lovely sunshine,
Brought Ali for a swim, met a cantankerous woman
At the river who asked me to remove my dog as she wanted to
Play ball with her dog and Ali was butting in!lol

Not so easy to say to a dog
'Now dear that game is not meant for you'

I politely said,'they all do that and there's little we can
Do, but, I'm very happy that they play together, if you like'

'
But she was having none of it..
And so I brought Ali away -
too old now & way too many times round the block to end up
arguing about dogs playing ball. Lol

Tho''twas a wonderful day and thankful to
The Powers that Be, that I lived to see it.

But.

That other tragedy is still playing on my mind..
I simply cannot stop thinking of it..

Can anyone enlighten me as to WHY no one came to the soldier's
Aid when he was being to monstrously attacked-
There were men there, we saw video of it..

Recently I was witness to a girl's mobile phone being
Snatched from her hand, just as quickly,
several young men leaped forward and gave chase after the robber.. which went on
for ages.. Being cheered on by the crowd...until eventually
The robber, became fearful and dropped the phone,
Then the case ceased.

WHY did no one do that last Wednesday..
Or intervene!

Wonder was it SO unusually shocking to see two guys
Trying to behead a man in broad daylight..
Surreal, that everyone became numbed..

I suppose I'd have been just like the others,
Had I been there,
Staring in disbelief..
And of little use!

I have absolute admiration for the young woman (0passer by) who
-INSISTED even to the killer-
that she wanted to go and sit by the body
(Now he had died of the savage injuries inflicted)

Apparently the killer said 'why, he's dead'
and
She said,

''I know,
But I just don't want him lying there alone"

What a very basic human wondrous instinct
came into play in those strange moments.

I meant to add,
That indeed, the stealing of a phone and
hacking a man to death
are light years of a difference

- as we all know-

And,
Yet in the lesser case..
folks joined in.. to help!

There's always one like that woman, don't you find Grace?
What a nerve telling you to remove Ali from her dog's space..
no right at all.
Her dog sounds a trifle spoilt to me, lol.

I really didn't know that was what that lady said to the killer,
how compassionate she is and how very brave...I believe she said
'rather me than any children'..had he turned on her.

I understand that people interviewed later after the atrocity, said that they thought that the killers were trying to help him, that they thought he had been knocked down by a car..which of course he had, their car, but when one fellow realized what was happening he 'phoned for the police.

I honestly cannot recall being so shocked over any taking of life
as this...this is a new low. I see a soldier on duty in France, has been attacked, stabbed in the neck, and fighting for his life. An attempted copy-cat?

Same with my husband's family - not forthcoming at all. Hence he is very interested in genealogy and the like. His grandfather was a baseball player on the Chicago Cubs and some other teams in the early 1900s. That's the highlight. The rest he has to seek out on his own. At least there's a wealth of resources available today.

I briefly heard about flooding in TX Denny but didn't catch where. Talk about adding insult to injury after all the tornadoes! I hope no one was hurt.

Why thank you. Unless all this time it's been lies, lies, lies (gasp! and I shudder to think), I rather think that some of us have truly had a positive and meaningful effect on each other. After a while I think one can tell the sincerity and honesty in some. Wouldn't you agree Grace?

Some posters names may not be their given names but that doesn't mean they are deceitful in using a pen name.

As to the part......I don't suppose the lady could have gone elsewhere with her dog?!? People! So selfish and thoughtless sometimes!!

How completely tragic about the British soldier's murder. I am only come across more news. And now a French soldier had been stabbed. What can we even say? It seems things are getting crazier and crazier.

Good Day Everybody,

hope you're having a restful weekend. It's gorgeous in Wales today, I was sitting out in
the morning sun in my jim-jams at half past eight
with a cup of Lipton's English Breakfast tea and
toast and marmalade.(tmi)..:)

Grace...withdrawal smptoms last evening, no BGT,
so watched Friday's recording of the Graham Norton
show, the guest list was amazing, and Graham takes
it all in his stride, he is the amazing one.
MICHAEL DOUGLAS was phenominal, I love that man,
as was Will Smith and son, other guests equally impressive.

'Morning Quincy, Sir Tally, Denny

hope the flooding passed you by Denny and you
are okay.

Good morning El. We have had a few soaking rains that were much needed :) I would love to share some toast and marmalade with you. A comment I heard on English cooking was it is so bad they pour vinegar on it to make it taste better. I use vinegar to clean my windows :)
