<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!!

<quoted text>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.
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.

<quoted text>Snowden didn't tell our enemies anything they didn't know already but where is the outrage that the government is spying on all of us and the violated the 4th amendment of our constitution. The public is so easily distracted from what is important :(
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, 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.
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.

A pleasant evening here,
I believe poor Mandella is very
close to death now..
Peace to him...
a great man..
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.

You went on an excursion with a hawk El didn't you?
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?

We people tend to forget they are still wild animals at heart and do what wild animals do from time to time.

Recently one of my dogs got a hold of a bird.....the other a rabbit. They may be spoiled and domesticated but they are still wolves with instinct.

Too true they are. Sad to say, when the 'foot and mouth' was
present here in the sheep, many farmers released their dogs
into the hills where they formed packs and survived as their
ancestors before them did.
Hope you managed to save the bird and rabbit!...:)

here is something for you to think about before we dismiss this and USA is an ogre

doing some more research ...

A]....The kirpan is worn strapped to a belt known as a gatra...

B]....Singh said he was wearing his kirpan underneath his shirt, out of sight.

now if it is a display, why was it hidden... then would it stand to reason that security had to be informed...now who and how , who know it was under his shirt????
