You say Ringo can't sing? I have been listening to Mick Jagger for 50 years and have no clue what his lyrics are! Kris Kristophersonn? was being interviewed about being a famous singer and Kris replied, "Singer!?" "Hell I can't sing!" "I'm a writer!" I went to my basement years ago and tried singing while playing my banjo. My wife called the ambulance.
Have you heard Bob Dylan sing? He's an awesome writer though and love him just the same ... At least your wife new the correct number to call, lol ... the WHAH-ambulance, hahaha

Did you enjoy the movie Flower? It's one I hope to see myself on
the big screen, there are one or two misrepresentations in it
apparently, unfortunately I forget what they are. lol
Rather miffed this evening as it looks like I have missed The Grammys,
I understood it was on tonight but cannot find.
Love, El..<3
Good evening Lady El ... I got all suited up for the gym and planned on going ... I got a late text from Gabrielle stating she was all dressed up with nowhere to go, her back & total knee replacement hurt and wanted to go to the movies ... She's on the way to both locations ... I picked her up and we FINALLY went to the cinema & got the early bird discount ... the movie was very intense and very good. It brought tears to my eyes at the end and I tried to hide them but I wasn't the only one as Gabrielle said "that was sad" and she had tears as well ... LONE SURVIVOR is based on a true story and I will read the book to see what they left out ... 4 Navy Seals sent in to fight the Taliban and were ambushed in 2005 ... it was action packed and brutal ...The lone survivor is Marcus Luttrell and there are several youtube interviews, ie., 60 Minutes, Matt Lauer and others in which he talks about the ambush/rescue ... Cannot say you missed much on the Grammy's unless you are in to hip hop and (c)rap, LOL ... But I did watch it until I fell asleep and apparently missed the good stuff ... Now, why does that now surprise me, hahaha ...
Hope you had a lovely day .. Hello to P, catnip for the kittens and sleep tight, dream light! Love you, mean it! FC <3...

not entirely accurate but close enough until you get into the 30C range ...

El..

We say the same about losing our individuality
having followed the URO, at least GB never did that,
do you think they will ever be swayed?

Running fast into FEB, thought January went fast this year
and was reasonable weather wise -
no 'news' from here as yet!

THANKS FOR THE LINK ABOUT SCHUMACHER,

ads you probably heard, they are trying to awaken him
from his coma just now.

I read in another article, they say
his injuries were far worse than were originally
reported.

Gee! if it were me, and it meant I'd be brain dead
as a result and I'd have to be 'kept' alive,
for years - I'd sure rather they'd let me slip away into oblivion,
can't say what they should do in his case, it's too
big an issue to call for anyone else.

Poor unfortunate soul.

Flower....I won't fret too much at missing the Grammy's then....the Red Carpet was
enough! I recorded it so was able to f/f the bits which bored me.
But about this movie. Guess who got the wrong end of the stick, in other words,
guess who was talking about a completely different movie, lol.
It was when you said Navy Seals the penny dropped!....:)
The one I was referring to is 'The Monument Men'.....the niece of one of the British
volunteers who died in trying to restore the stolen valuables back from the nazis,
and return them to the descendants of the rightful owners, was on the tv recently
sad that her Uncle had not as much as been given a mention in the movie, it
was though the British were not part of it, there were 17 Nations involved from what I understand.
On my wishlist now is Inside Llewellyn Davis ...I think I have that right!....:)
Set in the 60's in NYC, yeah.
Sending love and warm wishes on this bitterly cold day..<3

Grace......no news yet then, no worries, better late.......

Certainly have lost our individuality imo.....but good to have a broader
outlook in some instances.

Let us hope and pray that in time Michael Schumacher will regain his
momentum....it is thought it will take quite some time and that he is
being 'eased' out of the enforced coma.

We are 'on the town' tomorrow....so I'll see you all over the weekend.

Cheers for now.

Hi EL ... what you mentioned here is one of my pet peeves about Americans and Americans regarding movies in WW II ... they portray themselves as the heroes, give little or no mention of anyone but American forces.

WHen speaking to a few more obnoxious individuals, they are convinced that the war would not have been won without American participation, that "without the AMerican intervention you (Brits and Europeans) would all be speaking German now" . They know little if anything of the small portion Americans actually played in the TOTAL war effort from 1939 to 1945 which included many, many more soldiers and casualties amongst European nations compared to American. they act almost like the European nations were the minor players versus the Americans. I think that AMerican war movies are partially to blame for this perception.

when my ex wife was in her coma, she was not breathing on her own which means she had tubes stuck down her throat attached to a ventilator to help her breath. They said it was better that she was not awake with those tubes down her throat. They told me that they would induce the coma if they had to until she started breathing on her own.

This could be the case with Shumacher. Perhaps he is breahting on his own now?

A bit o'personal history for you,{{{ Cuz El }}}. My ex-wife and I used Judy Collin's rendition of the above as one of the recorded pieces in our wedding ceremony.
I won't bore all of you with the whole selection (which I'd have to dig out of my music collection, anyway). Though I can tell you that we replaced the traditional Wedding March with Pachebel's Canon [Neville Marriner/ St. Martin-In-The-Fields] and used the ending of Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture with cannon [Arthur Fiedler/Boston Pops Orchestra]
I am familiar with the latter, that is Tchaikosky's 1812 Overture with cannon.....
Pachebel's I will attempt to find, but that must have been a grand occasion, the occasion
of your wedding. Memories such as that survive the test of time when all else fails.
Thankyou for sharing {{{Cuz Luke}}}

Hey Franko.....

I agree, it just should not happen, it amounts to changing the facts of history.
But I will say that no way would we have won the war had the Americans NOT
come to our rescue, also we would have had to fight the Japenese more than
we did in Burma....so we owe the Americans a great deal. As we do the
Canadians, the Australians, New Zealanders, South Africans, Indians, Jamaicans
Ghurkas, in fact, the British Empire of that time.

I don't know how long your ex wife was in her coma, Franko, in my brother's case
his was induced for one week, I remember what a worrying time it was, but he
was lucky and suffered no ill effects. Just physically weak upon release from
hospital, it took some time to bounce back.

<quoted text>El half the room claps. They are Democrats. If what he say is neutral both sides clap. This was a campaign speech. All the wows he announced have been under his administration for the last 5 year. He acts like his policies had nothing to do with the decline. During the first two years he had control of both the house and the senate and still he did nothing. Fewer people have insurance after Obama care than before Obama care. He promised the cost would be down about $2500 and instead it doubled in cost. Deductibles went way up. Some people have $6,000 deductible before insurance kicks it. We have fewer people in the work force that we have had in 30 years. Median income has gone down under Obama. All the previous presidents since the beginning let Obama with a debt of 10 trillion dollars and Obama brought that 10 to 17 trillion in debt. By the time his term is over he will have left a debt double what all previous presidents combined left.
Maybe I'm simple minded Denny, lol, but surely the Democrats wouldn't clap if they
were being lied to and aware of it, they are not so loyal surely.
I was under the impression that he is hampered every way he attempts to turn. If so, that is not in the interests of the United States of America.

to be honest I believe a different story .... that Germany had pretty much exhausted their manpower (they were sending 14 year olds to war), their reserves, etc etc ... they simply could not have faught much longer .... as to Japan, I am not clear on how they affected the British, I suppose only in British held territories in the Pacific region.

I truly enjoyed listening to that piece, and also the guy playing the guitar to the same
piece of music.....

and that from me who has an aversion to classical music....I blame it on being forced
to visit the Freetrade Hall in Manchester when at school, to hear and see The Halle
Orchestra led by Sir John Barbarolli.

Why oh why did they not take us to Bob Dylan concerts. LOL!

Could be because he was still a kid himself of course.

But your weddings and that of Deer Whisperer must have been such wonderful affairs.

I think of my own first wedding in comparison.

Clutching a slip of paper signed by my Mum giving permission, but dolled up in a MOST
expensive dress, my beautiful (now late) first husband to be and I, hailed two strangers
off the street to be our Witnesses.....got married...then roared off in our Austin Healey
3000 to the open air swimming pool....later spent our wedding night at his folk's home..they were on holiday.

Suited us.

Fair enough Franko...but Germany's biggest mistake was invading Russia, hence depleted manpower. They lost a complete army at Stalingrad.
The reasons we had to defend against the Japanese was their intention to take over
India, which was 'The Jewel In The Crown of the British Empire'.
Quoting Sir Winston Churchill.
