Our great white hope, lol, Andy Murray is Scottish, there was a time not long ago when he was known to remark that he would wish anyone would win a certain tournament except for the English! lol
Understandable given the history.
But he has earned his way into our hearts, none cheer him moreso than the large English audience at Wimbledon, and although it will be from my armchair, I will cheering him on too.
I do hope that Great Britain grows in unity and eventually puts aside that histroy .. not an easy thing ... Yugoslavia split up due to internal animosity, as did Chzeckslovakia.

Gracious good evening/morning Kitchen-eers. Good and improving health as appropriate to the denizens of dining. So ... we're nigh onto Strawberries and Cream at Wimbledon, eh wot?! Just so, I say we 'huzzah' victory of the now-reigning U.S. Open (golf) champion Englishmen Justin Rose two week-ends past. The Open Championship playing at Muirfield is upcoming in July.

Let me caution franko :)... calling tennis pro and last year's Wimbledon champ Andy Murray and Englishman will get you grief from Sean Connery! I remember that 'row' last year.

Another June baby here; Saturday 6/22. In celebration on Sunday, 2 daughters (and a future son-in-law) treated to a trip to a cavern exploration by boat float tour in southern Indiana. Long day with drive, but an amazing experience.

Mundane, but 'new and different': I had to lure,'corral', and release a skink (lizard) to my woods this evening; with watermelon inside an Ocean Spray juice bottle set away from my "closet-size" utility room where it was hiding under my washing machine. It didn't go in the bottle, but it was along side it where I could trap with broom and dust pan. Had 2 escapes before I could get it outside.

Recently in another Indiana area a young employee made a mistake in cleaning a big cat area and paid a price. Fortunately she is recovering sufficiently to be upgraded in condition:

http://www.indystar.com/article/20130622/NEWS...

She is an adult at 21, and as a budding professional has to be concerned with policy and procedure.

I did see on TV about a gorilla being pestered by little kids in a zoo, and "giving back". I think some perspective is appropriate.

Fortunately this is another of the many viewing areas for enjoyment of being near wild animals *with* a safety glass partition. That said, it is certainly quite desirable for parents to educate appropriate behaviour and respect rendered by their offspring for all kinds of experiences and situations. And starting early is key; but parents can be oh so neglectful.

A conscientious establishment *at least* should follow-through and speak to said parents about such incidents even though there are safety partitions. Further follow-up measurements can be invoked as well if pertinent.

Parents are responsible here: harm or worse to children from parental neglect is always difficult to handle.

Wishing harm or worse to children and assigning responsibility to said children for transgressions of *innocent excitement and glee* from lack of parental supervision is one of the saddest posts in its special way I've ever read on Topix.

It just makes me curious to see what was in the mind of such a man in the early days of his rise to power ... and what was it in that book that inspired millions of citizens to go along with him?

I would never dare to call anyone an Englishmen if they are Scottish Irish or Welsh.

BTW .. Murray did not win Wimbledon, but he did win the Olympics played at Wimbledon.

Have read it and frankly, it isn't worth it. Very badly written, its only interest value is in interpreting Hitler's later foreign policy actions, but even then, it isn't any blueprint: it is very vague.

all credit to the Belgian, he played great. Good luck to him.

You can also root for Laura Robson after the brilliant way she put out the number 10 seed yesterday - 6-3, 6-4. At last it looks as if we might have a class act in Brit females around again - been too long since we could say that. Again, I was dead luck y to catch the game - you wouldn't have thought she is only 19 (although she was junior champion at Wimbledon last year).

Silly really when we are all part of the United Kingdom, although
there are those in Scotland would like Independence, but considering they are finacially dependent upon Westminster (London)
would be a detrimental move.

Silly too, as basically we are a bunch of mongrels, in that most
have some Irish, Scottish and/or Welsh blood...
although I have yet to trace any Welsh ancestry myself...:)

Welsh pride is to be admired, they wear their patriotism on their
sleeves and shout their nationality from the roof tops, yet half of them, particularly in South Wales, have English ancestry.

I can usually spot the latter at a glance, as they are invariably
taller, the Welsh being short in stature.

Absolutely. Be brilliant if she went all the way, certainly

Most unfortunate about the young keeper, so dedicated too, but at the mercy of her co-workers, who apparently were negligent here.
To be hoped she makes a full recovery, and lessons are learnt.

I wish I could catergorise children behaving badly toward animals, however safety housed, as *innocent excitement and glee*..in many cases is it downright wickedness. They themselves know that they cannot be reached by the said animals, and so they taunt the animals to a point of frustration. Can we always blame lack of parental guidance? I think not. I believe it is *in* some kids that no matter how well brought up they are, and however much they are taught, respect animals, off the leash as it were, their true nature will out.

An instance is a very well brought up grand-child of a dear friend of mine. This boy looks like an angel, his grand parents have two dogs, three cats, who in their presence, he outwardly adores.

I had a litter of tiny kittens who I had allowed in the garden, to play on the steps and catch some fresh air. Momentarily my attention was directed elsewhere, I turned to see this boy (aged 10) knocking the blind kitten (Little Nell)(who I kept) off the step. So much for all his parental guidance.

Another instance is our cat Oliver, now deceased.

Oliver was used as target practice and left for dead by a VERY well brought up young man, brought up with a moral background,
his parents running a Christian establishment...wanted for nothing but taught good values.
He was later heard boasting about how many pellets he shot into our cat. Who incidentally recovered with good surgery and TLC.

No, you can't always blame the parents, and I echo Quincy in many respects, the little buggers want a good sharp shock, personally I could willingly give them a 'back hander', LOL.

Meant to say, well done for releasing the skink....
