GREAT excitement over here today
The OBAMAS are hereabouts..

Mrs Obama introduced her famous hubby to
talk to a hall full of students in BELFAST.

He .. the great orator, as usual, didn't disappoint!

She, Mrs Obama and daughters are staying in Dublin
a few nights, they will visit Trinity College,
and observe the tracing of HER ancestry,
later a visit to a special performance of
RIVERDANCE in a Dublin theatre. et.. etc..
bit of red carpet treatment!

How lovely the Obama daughters are turning out..
and Lady Obama still has that warmth which
captures everyone, it seems.

can be seen in SKY NEWS..

I imagine you will look in... El, knowing your
keen interest in current affairs.!

El,
Wonder do you still have time to follow>

THE VOICE UK?
I find it GREAT,
with all due respect very much better and more
captivating than the Irish version
[ducking the stones and arrows] LOL

but credit where it's due..

I think this girl LEAH,
from Belfast is *extraordinary*
a unique talent IMO .... to me she stands
out MILES
[thought so from her very 1st appearance.]

from the others who are also very good..

I expect LEAH to win the whole competition.
with ease..
She's just amazing.



Other opinions would be nice..

[thanks]

And...

Re Tony, your previous post -

Many of us on Offbeat think the same - me included -
& it's why I made that special thread for him..
which is very well supported by many others
who have great admiration for Tony1003.
and how he's dealing with 'this period of time'

Afternoon now so I will say Good Afternoon Krypteia.
I got lost on Wikipedia agin..lol.. d'you know, I never ever
realised the original reason for naming the Grenadier Guards
such, figures I know, but it never occurred to me. Just shows,
we live and learn all the time.
Is their march tune The Hugeonots by any chance? If so, my
favourite also.
Brilliant performance from England Rugby squad, I don't often
watch the Rugby but I shan't be missing next Saturdays match.
btw, what's happening with Bale? Oh, and did you see the Man City
line-up....spot the Englishman! Who is the odd one out, lol.
Unbelievable.

Good Morning Denny....can't remember if I got back to you at all,
wanted to ask you how your wife is, as let's be honest, it's a bit of shock all round when something like that happens, however minimal. Hope she is okay by now..and you too!

Big fuss over here about a supermarket stocking Kangaroo steaks, half the price of beef, but I won't be touching them.

How much is that, per person? A lot of people gripe about the
cost of maintaining the Royals, but at 60pence a year, who's
complaining?

It's a lovely thread Grace, really well visited by people
who otherwise, would not have had the chance to wish Tony
well, not being visitors to the Kitchen.

You are never a brat Trish..not in my eyes anyway, and you are
always welcome here...

Thank YOU for your exceptional greeting embracing Fathers AND

'Lo Grace..

all the time in the world of an evening, but sad to say, I
have 'gone off' The Voice'..I found it was getting a bit
too predictable...sorry to be such a misery....:)

Did you see those on Sky News discussing the winners of
BGT?! Being Hungarian that is. Also saying that it is
unfair for children to compete with adults. I have to say
I am in agreement, what think you?

I think we all feel the same Denny...

Not too bad when the weather is fine to have the windows
replaced. We had the double glazing, windows and doors,
installed in the depths of Winter...it was a nightmare,
but has been a blessing since.
Good luck with the job...

I can see that, in a way, El,
with so much singing,@ least in BGT
there is great variety..
yes, always a bit dodgy competing with children AND
animals, I agree - through NO fault of their own,
they gain a natural advantage.

Anyway, THE VOICE final is on next Saturday night.. should be a good show if you want to see it.

That girl Leah is extraordinary,
she's like a female Michael Jackson [voice wise]..

Grace.

You wouldn't want anything but the truth I am sure.

Leah was killing me alright, and it wasn't softly.

It wasn't for me I'm afraid, I thought she murdered
the song.

Now this one is sweet...

https://www.youtube.com/watch...

just my opinion of course. And no offence intended.

You'll be delighted with the new windows,

I was,

but the few spiders who had set up home there,
rent free, weren't too happy(:

Sorry Grace, I don't mean to be a killjoy.

First off we have hundreds of scouts scouring Britain to find
the most talented act...and a bloody dog wins it.
('scuse my French)

Then, on Britain's Got Talent...a Hungarian act wins.

Is it me, or is there something not quite right about this? LOL
