Well, El...
After all, Leah failed to take the
prize, eventho' she sang as well as ever,
no point is saying it might be for this reason or that..
or a hundred other reasons -
it's over now and Andrea,
who also sang beautifully, took the prize..
I still feel Leah will [in the right hands]
do extraordinarily well.
Wishing both girls great luck in
their future:
I watched the four finalists at the beginning Grace,
with new eyes as it were.
And I did see what you meant about the male singers,
very good indeed but nothing startling.
The two girls were and it was very close.
Not having watched it all along I felt I could judge the
four 'on the night' but I was hard pressed to choose
between the two girl singers.
Absolutely wish them both lots of luck in the future.

That region is not known for flooding problems, this is quite an anomolly ... a combination of spring runnoff of melting snow in the mountains combined with a lot of rain.
I have to admit I have never read it. I was merely quoting
a well known line or two out of the book.

Certainly is weird weather, everywhere. Wicked in Pakistan,
so many losses of lives. We in the UK have just been forecast
a decade of rain!!! Three weeks ago they promised us hot
Summers of old were returning. For this they are paid!

Wow! I shocked by the flooding. Not something we often hear about in Canada. Alberta is pretty far east of you isn't it? I imagine Vancouver is rainy like Seattle but hopefully you don't get floods like other areas near bodies of water.
Animal Farm? Brings me back to school days .... when banned books made for insightful reading!
Missed you yesterday Quincy...glad to see you today.

Having said that, I am about to disappear...have a roast
dinner in the oven, followed by New York Cheesecake....
serious comfort food.....:)

Indeed.

Not JUST a sport, but an inspiration in times of crisis.

A very thoughtful post, thank you.

Evening all, thank you for all who have wished me well - going great guns right now, eating for England (and the rest of the colonies!!) and feeling very good. Interesting week ahead - keep your fingers crossed for me. Weather is going to be good for those of you in UK area for next 7 days - that's a promise - not too hot, but no rain and more than a little sun.

Hey TOny, glad to hear things are going well for you.

I will be tracking that UK weather since I will be watching all the Wimbledon that I can.

I feel sorry for Federer, he has a bad draw, has to face Nadal, Djokovic and Murray in order to win the title ... they say if he manages to win, it will be his greatest victory ever.

'Evening Tony...most certainly will be thinking of you early
next week...remember, you are half way there!
Heard that the Lions won....it's a-l-l good.
Cheered immensely by the news of fine weather ahead, thanks so
much for that...:)

Hi Franko...I believe Rafael Nadal is in line for Player of the Year, if I have to be honest, he is my favourite player, but all
are so good, so just looking forward to watching some good tennis.

Personally I don't like Rafa quite so much but he is an awesome player. RIght now the top 4 are so good, any one of them could have been world number one at any time in the previous 50 years of tennis. It is rare to have so many good players all at once.

I too will be following Wimbledon - usually miss much of it with working at Glastonbury, but because of my treatment, can't go this year. Be interesting to see if Murray can win - it seems to be something of a jinx for him in SW London!

Watched the Lions' game as weather curtailed the sailing - I have to say that they were lucky: not a great game, although 23-21 sounds close. Some very good individual performances, but neither side really played like a team. Some dreadful refereeing didn't help the cause, but I think the Ozzies were a little unlucky not to win - with a decent kicker, they would have.

Wimbledon has been a jinx for all englishmen for a long time.... also for British women .. the last british woman to win was Virginia Wade, 1977.

At least you had the game to fall back on, I heard (as I
didn't watch it) that the Lions were lucky to win, but
glad they did, it's a good start for them the first test of
the series.
Looking a tad overcast here btw!

Morning El and all,going for my annual review with the nurse shortly for my Hypertension review,had to fast for twelve hours,bloody typical normally I'm ok but feel I could eat a whole dolphin on toast at this precise moment,
Well a great win for the England under 20's and a win for the Lions,the ref was a complete muppet typical Southern Hemisphere,how O'Driscoll got two penalties against him I'll never know and the last scrum was a complete farce giving Australia a chance at goal,I'm afraid that ref needs re training..
