You looked after the Kitcheneers so well {{{Cuz}}}
hope you like the new Autumn weight tees, all carry
the flag of one's own domain on the back.....
I have two...one has the George Cross, as does Krypteia's
and Tony's....my other has the Welsh Dragon...Draig Goch!
Love the new Fall tee-shirts! My first observation moving yard yesterday was the the leaves that had fallen. Breezy enough that more fell/fluttered as I mowed.

I was estimating when I should commence blowing leaves out of my roof gutters and minimizing that activity until it's not required.

Been 'perfect' weather for a few days past, ending this morning with rain.

Extremely interesting link, many thanks for that, much detail
of which I was unaware.
Cuz Luke....I would be grateful if you would explain the association which you mention.
We have yet to watch the 'bonus disc' will be doing so over the weekend.
I guess I'm 'offbeat'. Because I was so impressed by this production, I declined to view the 'bonus disc' to date.

Sincere thanks to allow me to amend the flaw in that assertion. I omitted the fact of the creative mind of Shakespeare for the association of 'band of brothers'.

From the same link source:

The title for the book and the series comes from the famous St. Crispin's Day Speech delivered by the character of Henry V of England before the Battle of Agincourt in William Shakespeare's Henry V; Act IV, Scene 3.

Idiotic.
Now there are plans in motion to provide free school breakfasts to ALL children under 7 yrs. Regardless of how much income their
parents/guardians earn. Fine, but the reason for it is, so many
children are going to school hungry because their parents/guardians cannot afford to give them a breakfast.
WHAT?
How much would a bowl of cereal cost for heaven's sakes, a piece of buttered toast, and a warm drink.
And what happens when the child turns 7?
Would appreciate anybody's views on this please.
Here we give breakfast and lunch to kids. Training them to be dependent to the state. You may find it odd that we don't want government health care. It has already going to cost twice as much as was promised. Insurance was supposed to go down by $2500 and instead there have been huge increases in cost. A man of 40 has seen a 370% increase in cost in some states. The unions say it will destroy the 40 hour work week. If an employee works less that 30 hours the employer doesn't have to provide insurance so huge lay off making people who were full time part time. This is a train wreck. Congress has been made exempt by staff and congressmen being paid more money to cover the higher cost :(

LOL, everything is relative:)
I remember in the war years, once, staying in a hotel
with my parents, they each had a matchbox full of sugar!
which they produced at breakfast and evening tea time,
I [not knowing anything about rations:) thought this
was just magical, and the thoughts of actually
OWNING one such matchbox of sugar occupied all my waking hours,
as how to get one! sweet innocence lol.

El,
Thanks for your last tender post
about the little lady..
and her faithful companion, who died.
Grace...did you ever get your matchbox of sugar?

As of course any responsible parent would. I understand there are families struggling, but I fail to understand how anybody can claim not to be able to provide a breakfast for a child before sending them off to school. I don't buy it, at all. Like I said, how much would a bowl of cereal cost....and at the risk of sounding
harsh, half these families will not go without their ciggies, or their beer.
Your situation with the congressmen sounds similar to that over here, too many administrators.....

How often I thought that, and sometimes even if the person
saves 3/4 cents they'll buy some other item
they didn't intend to at all in the first place -
spending even more than intended.
Along the same lines, did you ever witness a person fidgeting
madly at a pedestrian crossing, not even waiting for lights to change,
but darting across as cars whiz by..
and at the other side they just stop aimlessly looking
into some store window:)LOL
the amazing thing here is how many parents lead their kids against the lights

'Morning Cuz Luke. For some reason I refrained from watching that final disc, the bonus disc, for the same reason as you have, and on reflection, I will leave it alone. From the link you provided I see it is as true to events as was possible....not interested in how it was made, etc., suffice, it was made.

No, allow me to thank you for displaying my ignorance! LOL!
But how very interesting, and thanks for claryfing that {{{Cuz}}}x

'Morning Denny. I do apologise, I misread your first line.
Would that be as a matter of course that the kids are given
breakfast and lunch, or does it just apply to a certain income
their family have? Lunch has always bee available at school even
whn I was at school, but never before, breakfasts. Lunch is to
b paid for unless the child is from a poor family, when I was at school the children who were unable to pay for their lunch one could count on onehand, now it is in reverse, one can count on one hand the number who actually pay. Speaking of the area I was in school.
As for the part-time idea, that came into force here many years ago, and it certainly does not provide any security for the employees. It's madness!

Grace, a story such as that is always touchingly sad to know. With the passing of the doggy companion, it's also mindful of what we can see/read from the minds of creative talent: "does art imitate life, or life imitate art".
Such things sadly occur from time to time. There are manifestations observed, but little is scientifically known, about how medical conditions -- not just Alzheimer's -- may affect the human mind. Sometimes a person can go into a trance-like state depending on laxity of medicating, even while driving which has potential tragic results for others.
Within the range of possibilities, some that are seen as just being merely forgetful and can fend for themselves may cross that threshold into "lost" at any time, with dire results. Some sufferers may be "constantly" in care of others, but still get out on their own, and that includes some in facilities not just in family/friends care.
Good Sunday greetings, Kitcheneers!
That is so DW,
and also, each case is entirely different
from the next one,
this lady had been used to going out briefly to the
local store always coming back,
and then came the date she crossed that threshold
you mentioned into 'lost'

I always think 'to err on the side of caution'
is a good adage here.

Like El,
I saw a relation pass thru' many stages of alzheimers,
to the end.

It is one illness I'd like to dodge,
but these choices are never ours.

Thanks for your good reply, DW.
