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 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 president’s 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, Ireland’s oldest university, and archives the college has gathered that document the Obamas’ 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 city’s Brandenburg Gate and a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel before returning to the U.S----
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.

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!
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.

'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.
http://www.don-mclean.com/killingmesoftly.asp
I would add that Roberta Flack's version is completely different,
but still easy on the ear.
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.

impediment, have what it takes to cast it aside ..
and simply

SING AND DANCE!!!

bless them, it shows attitude is EVERYTHING.

This speaks *volumes*..

I for one am glad you did put it here Grace.
I enjoyed it immensly, it's catchy, made me
want to dance! Also made me 'step back' and
think on the struggle it must have taken to
achieve this, to have overcome so many obstacles.
All credit to them....
May they keep on singing and dancing and enjoying life,
and giving such pleasure to others.
Thanks Grace.

Icon this...
First of all, Belfast has some of the best hotels
in GB....and the Obamas are staying Dublin?
Secondly, why in Hell's name are we there? Kidding
ourselves we are still a great power. Having surrended most of rule making to Brussels...and cut our Armed Forces to an absolute minimum....
Thirdly...it's gets my goat that any visiting Head of State can presume to interfere with us...the U.K. When they get their own house in order, then
feel free....until then....
El Obama is like no president I have ever seen. He is in constant campaign and vacation mode. He fights against the results of the very programs his administration has done. He is never responsible for anything. The use of the IRS to attack his political opponents he says the first he new about it was from TV> It has gone on for 3 years and still going on. They trot out a lie that it was because of two low level people in Ohio but the trail leads right back to the white house. The head of the IRS went to the whit house over 150 times. The head of the IRS under Bush went to the white house once. People just don't connect Obama to what comes from his administration. He lied and changed the CIA report on Benghazi and told the lie for over two weeks then tries to kill the questions by saying it is under investigation and I can't say anything about an ongoing FBI investigation.

Hi Denny! I tried to find you earlier when I saw your name, but I couldn't decide where to catch you. I searched for the place I met you, with no success and there you were as well as your other place. When I noticed you here, I just had to come to say hello. Hope and pray all is well with you, your wife and family and all around circumstances in general.

Good Day
