Good Morning Everyone,
The Gentle Giant came back this morning, by whom
I mean the stray cat I have been feeding for some months now, so it was action stations, and he was
whizzed over to the Vets to be 'done'.....and hopefully this will curb his instincts, in time, to roam.
Had to laugh. P took him for me while I 'phoned to say the cat was on his way. The nurse asked me 'is he accompanied?'....hahaha
He is described at the Vets as 'the Feral'...a more gentle cat I have yet to meet, he is a darling and there is a home here for him forever. Named him Morgan.
Not a lot to say other than that, it's a lovely day, sunny, has been a light snowfall overnight....
beautiful.
Good evening/morning Kitchen-eers. It appears, and so glad of that, that stormy Sunday in the U.S. didn't hurt anyone here.

Your post, Cuz El signifies that all's right with the world. Another charge-kitty to love and righteous weather.

We shall have tea and biscuits on the Wednesday.:)

Few minutes before I set off to collect one cat from Vets....surgery was delayed until this morning due to a number of emergencies, so I am sure Morgan will be glad to be 'home'....he will be kept in tonight and we are making a facility for him in which to sleep outside cosy and warm, and live the life he prefers.

Hope to back for tea-time Cuz Luke....tea and biscuits it is...:)

Such good news on this cold Winter's day Grace,
will be a wonderful start to the coming year.

Hey Denny...tonight's the night, lol...in fact,
wish I had watched last night as the match was a wash out, not because England lost, but because they were rubbish, much as I hate to say it.
Although Joe Hart (the Goalie) was superb, still
England's number 1.

Wonder what Krypteia and Tony's views were of it.

Leaving freshly baked Banana Loaf on the counter,
coffee is on the go.

Alrighty then. I came 'round a tad early but coffee's good! I'll leave some notes to enjoy though nothing from The Times, Mail, Mirror, Guardian, etc.

And now for something completely different -- I see where Monty Python is re-forming for a live performance.

http://movies.yahoo.com/news/monty-python-reu...

Another news bit I saw recently was about the 50th anniversary of the debut of Dr. Who

I've only seen a few episodes from the Tom Baker and Peter Davison stints because of visiting in northern Indiana with access to Chicago PBS.

The assassination of President Kennedy BBC coverage and power black-outs somewhat affected the first showing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Who#History

Doctor Who first appeared on BBC television at 17:16:20 GMT on 23 November 1963,[14][15] following discussions and plans that had been in progress for a year.

It has been suggested that the transmission of the first episode was delayed by ten minutes due to extended news coverage of the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy the previous day; whereas in fact, it went out just eighty seconds late.[26] Because it was believed that the coverage of the events of the assassination as well as a series of power blackouts across the country may have caused too many viewers to miss this introduction to a new series, the BBC broadcast it again on 30 November 1963, just before the broadcast of episode two.[27][28]

Good morning El. The health care roll out is a mess. All the lies Obama told are coming home to roost. 5 million people have lost their insurance. After a month and a half only 27,000 have enrolled and it is predicted that 100 million will lost their insurance. If your policy doesn't meet the standards of Obama care it is cancelled. So if your current policy doesn't cover birth control it is cancelled. The government does very few things well. Even the democrats are running away from the program. Obama can't run for another term but Democrats who want to stay in office in the next election are running away from the system. Obama used a letter from one lady who was so happy she would have insurance for the first time in years. It turns out the policy is so expensive she won't be able to afford insurance

For a live performance...I didn't realise that Luke. heard them
discussing their comeback on Sky News this evening but missed
that fact. Good for them is all I can think!

Mixed feelings on Doctor Who and the timing of the broadcast.
Would not have missed delay of the first episode personally....
but the series still has it's devotees.

Apparently it is. It appears that one of women is 30 years
of age, indicating she is the child of one of the other two,
one of whom is Malaysian and the other Irish, now aged 59
and 68 yrs of age. A man and woman, both aged 67, have been arrested.
And this in Lambeth, London.

Is this possible do you think? Would love to know
what your views are about this.

I was talking to a charming lady yesterday, no youngster, but very pretty, and with a distinct Irish accent, so much so, I ventured to ask 'mind if I ask,
are you from Dublin by any chance?'

Her answer was a resolute NO...and she went on to explain that she had been brought up in New York State, I think she said Bear Mountain? and that she was proud
of being an American citizen. Rightly so, but tell me, do you believe it possible to have an Irish brogue
having been brought up in America.

I am really puzzled by this.

Past my bedtime so I'll say 'Night 'Night.

I doubt that 100 million would lose their insurance ... after all the insurance companies don't want to lose ALL thier cusotmers, that would be crazy. I do feel, however, that they are making a "statement" to the government with the people they have dropped ... which is "we don't have to keep the marginal customers anymore .... it is a business decision.

In fact, in my opinion, that proves exactly what is wrong with the current system .. it is all about making profits .... not about providing care to as any people as possible. As soon as they could get away with it they dropped 5 million poeple and left them in a lurch ... so much for all those commercials making out the insurance people as so magnamanous....

If she did not have insurance before either then she is no better or worse off than before. The private insurane was also too expensive.

there are parts of some large cities that have such a concentration of people of one ethnic origin that it is possible to hear kids growing up with accents similar to thier parents.

In Canada this is most obvious in QUebec where about 3 million people in that province barely speak any english at all. In Newfoundland and a part of the province of Nova Scotia called "Cape Breton" you hear people with Scottish or Irish accents. They still speak Gaelic in Cape Breton..... there is a singing group from their called "The Rankin family" and they sing some of their songs in Gaelic (here is a link . the second half is not in english)

by the federal guide lines , they have to drop the insured because they don't meet the fed codes ... so believe it

the US can not afford National Insurance . we have to large a population ....

told you this several times .. we are not Sweden
with a 9,555,893 or Canada 34,568,211 (July 2013 est.)

we are over 300 million

for her accent yes.. sounds as if she is first generation and of course her accent would be heavy as I would assume her children would be less
