Gd day everyone here..

Would like your opinions on this..
You know the MORE I watch the PISTORIUS case
The more uneasy I feel about it..

Before anyone points out the awful deed that was done
I know and understand that,
And whether he is found guilty for murder or
manslaughter in the end is up to the powers that be
who are going through it very thoroughly.

My crib is,
WHY has it been seen necessary to have it so public,
I think there is something deeply distasteful about that,
Not to say voyeuristic..

On every news bulletin-

The world looking on at> a family full of grief and a broken man every day in floods of tears,
People pulling up an easy chair ..sitting down to observe this 'drama' with a glass of wine.(I know one such)

Almost like enjoying someone else's misery..

I just don't feel it's right,
Ok when it's all over, giving the result is good enough
- as he is a well known figure..

But this??? Hanging him out to dry to 'entertain' others????

not for me.

'Afternoon Grace..

I could not agree more so I won't enlarge on anything you have said.

It is also possible that the fellow who has been extradited from the UK to
South Africa on suspicion of arranging his wife's murder will also be
televised. What IS the world coming to is all I can say.

A very important State Visit is underway currently in that, the
Irish President, Michael D Higgins, is visiting the UK following
the memorable visit to Ireland by HRH The Queen on May 17 2011,
when she was received by the former President Mary Robinson.
We here in the UK fell in love with the then Irish President, and
we are enchanted by President Higgins, who gave the most
beautiful speech at Windsor yesterday.
Today he and his wife are visiting Downing Street, the home of
the British Prime Minister.

May Peace reign forever more between our two countries.

OMG, El,

I am relieved to think you agree,
because I was beginning to feel like a freak!

And I'd say your guess is correct about the case you mention,

Wonder - Is THIS the new type of TV >

a cross between sensationalism, and reality TV,
watered with tears..
throw in a shake of MISERY ...
and Hey Presto!!!

You've got a crowd puller!

Very well expressed above El..(Mr Google:) couldn't do it better..

Changing times indeed,
and great things could come from this..

I thought it was beautiful and generous how
HRH wore the vivid green jewels in her crown..
what a beautiful gesture.

The pageantry was exquisite,
Well, of course, it is known .... " no other nation
on earth can equal THE BRITISH when
It comes to pageantry!"

So it has been written here, and I agree 100%

Everything about it, instead of going on and on
with words, suffice to say,
It was like a Fairytale.

This day will be well documented too...
as it continues.

Thanks Grace....thought the occasion deserved something more fitting than
my usual twaddle. lol

Well I dunno about Britain doing it best....Ireland was magnificent in it's
role of playing host to the Royal party. In fact, in looking up the date of the visit,
I watched it all over and thoroughly enjoyed it again.

I think folks here might enjoy
This!

An ordinary priest at a wedding decided to sing HALLELUJAH
Replacing original words with words for the happy couple
He was about to marry.

With his fine voice, It has become a UTube sensation!

Interesting. Makes me wonder if, say, the Judge presiding over the Oscar Pistorius
trial now, would have chosen to allow. There is no getting away from that trial, we
have it on the main news every morning from him walking into court.
An excellent example of why guns should be banned!

I have to say I really enjoyed that, really beautiful, thanks so much
for posting the link Grace.
He could very well have become a professional singer, instead he
chose to serve God. God Bless him.

In the middle of nowhere, this happens in 2014. Unbelievable. TG for cell phones
otherwise nobody would have known. Hope that lady had no lasting effects from
the shocking manner in which she was treated.
Has it been peaceful since that episode?

We had a nice day out yesterday, went to the multi-complex
cinema and saw 'American Hustle'. Absolutely fabulous
movie.
The acting was superb and a good storyline told. True in
part apparently. Loved those characters.

The actor who played Richie was Christian Bale, he had a
very convincing Bronx accent. So I looked up where he came
from and nearly died....he is Welsh of English parents!....:)

After the movie, in the Ladies, I asked two rather elderly nicely
dressed refined ladies had they enjoyed the film. The taller
smiled sweetly and apologetically said 'I don't like bad language,
it completely spoilt the film for me'.!!!!

To my own disgust I found myself saying 'it was completely unecessary,
why do they feel it necessary to insert such language in what otherwise
be an excellent movie'...blah blah blah.

But in truth, I wonder how on Earth anybody could be so blindsided as
to not look through the profanities (I barely noticed them myself)
and accept the movie for what it was, excellent acting and a damn good plot.

Hate myself for not speaking my mind..........
