of course ... but that is beside the point. The entire point was that telling me to look at a map was a stupid way of discussing the SYrian sitatoin because it does not provide the information one needs to have the discussion. WHether I knew anything else or not is not the relevant issue of my point ...

Don't forget, the USA had an isolationist' policy until Pearl Harbour, Dec. 1941. Then they had to declare war on Japan and came into the Second World War. And thank God you did, but we
paid back every penny.
As for the civil rights issues in the South, remember it was
William Wilberforce (British Parliament) who fought for the abolishment of slavery.
Why would a country the size of the USA need assistance from elsewhere?
The slave trade is a tricky one - we abolished the Trade in 1807 - which was the work of Wilberforce. However, slavery in the British Empire was not ended until 1834 (power of the sugar interests in the Caribbean). Ironically, it was not until 1967 that slavery was made illegal in the UK - make of that what you will! It was clever of Lincoln to make slavery rather than the right of secession the issue once the Civil War broke out - it took UK support for the South away (cotton interests in Lancashire were keen to support the South for trade).

It may be associated with what she eats.
Thanks for reply, Tally.

Thanks Tony....I do know from my interest in Industrustial history
that Lincoln sent a letter to the mill workers of Lancashire, and
of course they had to down tools when the cotton supply dwindled from the South, the mills shut down. Very clever of Lincoln agreed, in fact I recall a statue of him in Platt Fields Manchester, now moved into the City I believe.

Grace....one or two questions for you!
Is this a new development with Ali?
Have you introduced a new diet?
Is the odour FROM or ON her?
Surely a Vet would only recommend shampooing a
large dog such as Ali if he/she considered it was
a skin problem....
I had a Labrador/Cross myself, and I cannot recall
ever having to shampoo her.

Tony. Having weavers in my ancestry, was wondering if the silk weavers would be affected by any of the closures, although a
different process imagine they worked alongside the cotton weavers?

I would like to contradict a rumour which has been going around that the cook in this kitchen (who
happens to yours truly) has been slipping Viagra into the Blueberry Muffins. It just isn't true..
