Good morning, Cuz El. You're 'secondly' and 'thirdly' are beyond my understanding so I must defer.

I don't get the ire [:)] about the family separating themselves from the business meeting the Pres. is attending in Belfast to take in some Dublin doings?!

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-17/obam...

----First Lady Michelle Obama and the presidentís daughters, Malia and Sasha, who accompanied him to Belfast, will travel to Dublin, Ireland, for the duration of the summit. Their itinerary includes a tour of Trinity College, Irelandís oldest university, and archives the college has gathered that document the Obamasí Irish ancestry. They will also attend a performance of Celtic dance company Riverdance.

Obama and his family will continue on to Berlin with an itinerary that includes a presidential speech at the cityís Brandenburg Gate and a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel before returning to the U.S----

Hi El! By all means get your mad up
Never been to Ireland so I will take word on best hotels in Belfast..was blissfully unaware of the goings on in Brussels......but whole heartedly agree that US presidents tend to be full of hubris and have the unmitigated gall to tell other heads of state how to run their own countries !

As if Clinton or Bush 1 or Bush 2 or even Obama would take that sitting down!! Disgraceful!

That is right El,
We will agree to differ on this,
whilst Roberta sings it well, no doubt,
but sings it like everyone else sings that song..
the 'VOICE UK'
girl gives it a very different treatment..
and that appealed to me -
and
NO offense taken El..
That's the beauty of 'opinion'
each one is different,
and valuable.
'Morning Grace,

lovely morning here, looks like Summer has returned.

'Killing Me Softly'....

It was written by a gentle lady for a gentleman.

I doubt very much if she would have cared to hear it sung
in this manner, and neither did I.

It wasn't just a case of personal like/dislike, it was
an opinion I voiced on the how the song was intended to be sung.
A poem set to music.

If you will, please scroll down to the video where Lori Leiberman
sings her song.

I would add that Roberta Flack's version is completely different,
but still easy on the ear.

Dono' much about the politics of it, El,
but ..
apparently when Obama was in Southern Ireland before,
he said many times how he thought his daughters
would love it so much and vowed he would bring them
back, and that's what he decided, on this trip - they stay in Dublin,
visit Trinity College, have a private showing of
RIVERDANCE, etc...while he talks 'shop' up North(:
That's nice Grace.

It would have been even better had the Pres brought his family
to Southern Ireland specifically for a vacation...he is here on
business and it's an insult to a vibrant city to stay elsewhere,
in my opinion.

Good Morning Cuz Luke..
Interesting link, thank you. If he can do some good then so be it,
personally I cannot understand foreign intervention, but if his
popularity and charisma drives a point home, then all to the good.
The President certainly has a busy schedule ahead, we wish him well and hope he has a safe journey.

G'Morning Quincy...
now how often do I get my mad up?...:)
No doubt about it, Dublin is a beautiful city, I have been many
times and loved every minute of each visit. It is merely the
principal of the thing, the Summit is held in an equally interesting city in it's own way, and remember, when Obama's
ancestors were around, both Southern and Northern Ireland were
one.

And part of the British Isles. England, Ireland, Scotland and
Wales.

Since we joined the European Union, many of the laws now are
laid down by Brussels. Sort of like the USA being dictated to by Canada. In my simple way that is how I see things..:)

However, they are not responsible for thousands of our soldiers being made redundant this morning..that is of our own doing,
soliders who have served in Afghanistan, Iraq, coming home and
chucked out, no pension, shocking.

Well you know my views on our cowardly treacherous politicians I hate them all,if Westminster went up in a ball of flames I'd throw a party the only thing I'd get upset about is such a beautiful building getting ruined,,,,Thank god for the monarchy..

Just a difference of opinion here, El...
not an issue, and I am perfectly fine with that.

In the same way THE BEATLES 'Yesterday' is sometimes
played as an instrumental piece, tho' not
originally intended to be -
I have no problem with that.

I hope the girl LEAH from Belfast will win the VOICE competition
outright, as she deserves "in my opinion" and
there are many others whom, I am sure,
hope she won't!!

we are all different ... and life's the better for that.

A sweet day here too,
The Obama's are off to visit Glendalough, in Co Wicklow,
a most God given beauty spot, lovelier still when
framed in sunshine.

An excellent example Grace...

Paul McCartney's first wife Linda, fell in love with the MUSIC
of Yesterday when it was released in the USA in September 1965.
She was not a fan of the Beatles, but fell in love with the
music.
So I can see why Paul would not object to an instrumental recording
of the song being released.

Paul's birthday today 18th June. Happy Birthday Paul!

They will love the Co. Wicklow. From the garden of my previous
house I could see the Wicklow Mountains....wait, I have mentioned
this before. Getting boring now!...(:
Better still we visited it one year, it did not disappoint.
