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.
I think if you look around many nations of the world you will find some internal divisions based on historical events ... QUebec has twice voted to separate from Canada, the last vote being about 15 years ago and losing 51 to 49 ....

There are those in the USA who still think the south should be a separate country, and some in TExas still fly a Texan flag saying they should secede.

Look at Israel/Palestine. Tibet wants out of China, taiwan claims sovereignity and still faces the possibility that china will force them to rejoin.

How's business Franko?
Are you kept going?
Don't forget to enjoy these
short lived summer days, in the meantime..
there have been too many distractions so progress has been slower than expected. That's OK, no rush ... I am earning money either way, just long term the business will be the better choice ....

Hi franko! I figured,really. I was just funnin' around about the "caution". And thanks for the factual correction about the gold Olympic win for Murray at Wimbledon. Yep, I confused that.

Very many congrats on the new baby...a good date to be born.
Good morning, Cuz El.

oh no! What I meant to convey by "Another June baby here; Saturday 6/22. In celebration on Sunday, 2 daughters..."

The trip was a birthday present for the birthday boy ... ME! And the daughter that is getting married in September showed off on her smart phone her new "baby" ... she is primed to adopt a 2-year old Samoyed from an animal shelter Thursday. She's presently the mother of 3 cats and a pit bull breed variety, and a gentle one thus far. Hoping the new dog doesn't change that.

Great stuff..

Hello Cuz Grace! Thanks, but I'll have to reiterate, there is no new grand-baby but for a 2-year old Samoyed dog about to be adopted.

The birthday baby was me.:)

<quoted text>Good Morning to you Quincy...
I remember that when you petted the 'gator, brilliant photos,
but like you say it was under guidance and the animal was not
forced into a situation, and had anything gone wrong, you would
not have expected the alligator to pay the price.
Nor me. When I used to do publicity shots at the local zoo,
long long ago, I took two chimpanzees along to an event, they
were only young, but there was jealousy between them, had one turned and I had gotten in the way, I would have regarded it as
completely on my head, it was my choice to take them, the Keeper accompanied us and I had visited them nightly after work to get to know them, and let them get to know me.
Same when I was hit in the eye by an elephant.....
I'll not go on, but on that occasion my first thought was that
I had to make it clear the elephant was doing what came naturally, guarding his territory.
You went on an excursion with a hawk El didn't you?

<quoted text>Good morning El. What is going on in the kitchen this morning? What do you here on TV about America? Here Snowden is all in the news and the Obama scandals have taken the back burner. 5 top IRS people have been fired so the story it was only 2 low level people in one office has been proven to be a lie
I say go Edward! He's a whistleblower not a traitor and Washington us trying to strong arm the rest of the world. Kudos to Hong Kong!!

The blending over boundaries can be interesting, too. A tier of two of northern Indiana counties could easily be split between Illinois and Michigan. At the southern state line, those could easily be Kentucky associated.

But the blending east and west, if any, is so gradual that without signs you can't tell if you're in central Indiana or central Ohio; or, central Indiana and central Illinois.

<quoted text>'Morning Denny,
George Osborne has taken the heat of Edward Snowden today
he is announcing his new Government spending plans apparently.
You know, where they take money away from the needy and send it
to foreign countries. Sound familiar?
Lots on about Snowden here also, nothing about Obama that I am
aware of.
Not surprisingly the US government has been accessing phone records and Internet records domestically and internationally ---- a fishing expedition --- and Snowden exposed the program. He just lacked a well thought out exit strategy. The US wants him back and most of the world is not interested in helping Washington.

Bingo! People are more pissed at Snowden and Glen Greenwald of the Guardian in the UK than they are about our government conducting a fishing expedition without probable cause to pull records.

Good Morning Dear Luke,

In which case a Belated Happy Birthday to you {{{Cuz Luke}}}
glad you had an enjoyable day.

Looking forward to hearing more on the new member of your
soon to be wed daughter's family and hope it goes according
to plan. Have the two dogs met as yet? Love Pit Bulls,
there used to be a tv programme I would watch 'Pitbulls and
Parolees' wonderful what they did in saving this breed, but
it seems to disappeared from view...pity.

It's never going to happen Franko, but it's a nice thought and thanks.

To be honest, I was unaware of the history until I came to live
here, and believe me, I learnt the hard way. I keep telling 'em
it's nothing to do with me, lol.

Best left...glad we are in agreement Grace.

Yes, Nelson Mandela...it is as though he is
delaying leaving this world to give his people
time to allow him to go...

A great man indeed.

One of my worst moments was being pecked through the eye
by a Pea-chick. It was sitting on my shoulder at the time,
you know, like they do, lol, I turned towards, and he
spotted the movement of my eye and wham. Didn't hurt
funnily enough and reassuring to learn that the eye is the
fastest part of the human body to heal.
But did I sue the management who took me in the area to see
the pea-chicks. Not at all, nobody forced me...
Thinking back, I can still see the look of incredibility on the
Optician's face when I went in with this little hole in my eye....
before he fell about laughing!....:)

I think Checkers moved on to other things. It was nice chatting with her.

Things are good here. With all the tian we've had my veg garden is getting really big --- so are the weeds!

How about you Fish? Getting in a garden this year?
