THE HOWARDS OF VIRGINIA
Beautiful young Virginian Jane steps down from her proper aristocratic upbrining when she marries down-to-earth surveyor Matt Howard. Matt joins the Colonial forces in their fight for freedom against England.
love that Cary Grant .... Englishman right ?
Tally Check out the wonderful book Oliver Wiswell. It is the revolution told from the Torry point of view. Remember 1/3 wanted free from England. 1/3 wanted to stay with Briton and 1/3 just wanted to be left alone. Kind of like all Frenchmen would tell you today how they were in the Resistance when the Resistance were mostly Communist

Morning all, the kitchen seems to be draped with strange flags and buntings - could it be that certain colonial chappies are celebrating something? Have a great day over the pond and I will resist any comments along the lines that we should be celebrating the departure!!

I'm spending 7 hours in hospital today for blood transfusions, so have had to arrange for my US visitors to meet me in a pub afterwards - what a bummer!!
Tony I can't even imagine what that's going be like. Thoughts are with you that all goes well.

I agree with you and just said last night - are we he headed for WWIII? I get why the people wanted to get Mubarak out. Why did the military arrest Morsi and suspend the Constitution? What happened?

where smaller dogs must stand back
while the alpha dog has it's meal!
Quite an accurate analogy.

That would be part of my point. Might does not make right in my book. We have seen examples throughout history where it all went bad.

Is that some sort of new Cancer Treatment plan? Does insurance cover the Pub charges? What's the deductible for that sort of thing?
You got it, all part of the Cancer treatment. Kind of you
to take an interest. Wouldn't that be something if insurance
did cover Public House charges....only in Cloud Cuckoo Land honey.

<quoted text>El please excuse us when we refer to England to include Wales Ireland and Scotland. We seldom use the correct term of United Kingdom :) No slight is intended
Thanks Denny.

Thing is, the other countries have their own military regiments,
you would be amongst the first to appreciate that, so when the
Royal Welch Fusiliers for instance, or the Scots Guards, go off
to Afghanistan, they go with pride in their own country, they
have their own language, now revived, they are not English, they
are British.

You being a Texan, would surely appreciate that aspect.

Sore and bruised but thankfully I'm walking OK.

Now that you explain it that way I understand.Texas is the 9th largest oil producing nation in the world. You never ask a person if they are from Texas. If they are they will tell you and if they aren't there is no point in embarrassing them :)

When someone has to make him/herself look better at the expense of others as I've witnessed him do firsthand, your assessment is certainly "right on the money".

On a human compassionate level I hope those who have serious health issues may fare well and see progress. That does give anyone carte blanche to act like a jerk.
