they have no authority to capture a group of females ANYWHERE, their objection

that women shouldn't be educated...
WHO says!
At least Michelle Obama who has clout -
being wife of POTUS..
and she's using it.
They want to swap these girls for POW's..
(Terrorists) to us.
But.. the authorities say NO DEAL,
so who knows how this will play out!
The only thing that can be done is the use of military force. The answer is you kill the terrorist but no one has the will or desire to do that. If the US stepped in and killed the the world would complain about our intervention. Grace everything the Obama's do is about politics. Michelle increased Obama's political standing at no cost to her making her statement. Who could be against helping these poor girls. The dirty sad truth is under sharia law women have no rights. It take two witnesses to prove rape. Women can be beaten. They can't drive a car and they call this a religion. They are straight out of the 10th century

Extremely late in coming here this evening.....

some interesting views on the situation in Nigeria. It has to
be mentioned that the Crusades have been going on for 2,000
years, at least, there will never be an end to it because there
will always be the extremists on both sides who want to carry
on the fight.

I have to agree with Denny. Those holding up their hashtags
and messages mean well, but what good will that do? That's
going to persuade the Islamist extremists to release the girls.

Grace, I so agree with you, much as we would like Madelaine McCann's
parents to have closure, or better yet, a reconciliation with their missing
daughter, she is after all, one of very many who go missing every year,
with little done to find them.

I heard recently of 1,000 Aboriginal girls/women who have been taken
and many murdered in Canada, nothing done to find them.

Furthermore, can I ask, without giving offence, why would any country
be neutral at a time of need? Surely it is a Global responsibilty?

Michell was not speaking off the cuff. She had the speech written for her by political experts. At no time did she use the name Boko Haram and at no time did she use the word Muslim. There is a film in America called Honor killings. Muslims have protested the showing of the film and it has been pulled from many theaters. It shows Muslim women being beaten and talks about fathers and Brothers murdering their children and sisters. They call this honor! We are so afraid of offending Muslims. America should remove all aid and finance from countries that practice Sharia law

This brought tears

"A bump in the road" .... remember that calloused statement? Do you recall the President referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road?" The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANON).
*THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI *
*We're the battling boys of Benghazi *
*No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.*
*Just a fiery death in a blazing hell *
*Defending our country we loved so well.*
*It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,*
*fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.*
*We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate *
*Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.*
*Just the two of us, and foes by the score,*
*But we stood fast to bar the door.*
*Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,*
*So we fought, and we fought, and we fought 'til we died.*
*We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,*
*But Barack Obama didn't give a damn.*
*Just two dead seals who carried the load *
*No thanks to us.........we were just "Bumps In The Road".*

Good Evening El,
True what you say, there will always be extremists
On both sides.

Lest their be any misunderstanding I meant by neutral,
'not fighting a war situation' but beyond that, of course,
we, like everyone else, in this country..
abhor the kidnapping of these girls and the burning down
of their schools ..

I know what Denny said about people objecting doing no good,
I see that differently, it's a honourable thing to be able to voice
an opinion and speak out loudly when we see wrong being done,
and many voices together make a public outcry eventually
and can have some effect, better than remaining silent (I think).

Difficult to see how this will unfold,
because the authorities say they have no
notion of releasing the people BOKO HARAM want.

Good morning all my friends. It rained all night and is rather cool out this morning. The lake is still down by 7 foot. It is funny to see the boat hoses with boats suspended over dry land and no way to get the out. It will be another year for them not being able to use their boats

Thanks Grace, and Good Afternoon.

'not fighting a war situation' and I quote.

That's all very well Grace, but let me ask you, are you happy with that?

I mean, supposing it is the only way to put a stop to this happening
again, would you yourself be happy to leave it to others. I know I
wouldn't.

Nobody can just sit back and wonder how it's going to pan out, something has
to be done, and credit to the Americans, they are sending in manned surveillance
planes.

Good Morning Denny. That was a very powerful poem above. Who wrote it, was it
a relative of the deceased? Very moving indeed.

Tell me about the rain. Sunday it never stopped all day long. And it was only 48F....
yet everywhere is blooming, we had sun yesterday, inbetween trying to fix my pc
I was out in the garden. It was lovely.

Good Morning Sir Tally...

and thankyou for the sweet Mother's Day wishes......most appreciated.

Loved hearing about the Lilac trees where you grew up. A lovely memory..
I expect the fragrance of them now brings back those memories.

I was brought up in a house with a walled garden, and the predominent feature
were pink rambling roses. Matter of fact, I took a clipping of that rose everywhere
I lived, and they took like they had always been there. I took rose cuttings
to the USA but Customs confiscated them!(: Understandably in retrospect.

PC wise.....as they say here in Wales....'don't talk'! Did a system restore but bad as ever.

The 40 shades of green.. Enjoy.
I'd say El will have a thing to add too
about to green of lovely Wales!

How beautiful was that?! Loved this, thanks Grace. I had forgotten
how pure this lady's voice. Incredible how much alike are Ireland and Wales.

Very hard to know how to solve this one,
It's true, as you say.

Unfortunately, violence always breeds more violence,
We saw that so clearly with the invasion of Iraq..

And yet when ealing with the likes of ABUBAKAR SHEAKU (the top man)
apparently of 'Boko Haram' terrorist group, it's very hard to make the
right decision, as we know, they want prisoner exchange..
and the other side realise if they release these madmen,
even worse will happen, if they don't the girls will
be sacrificed..
Hobson's choice!

Thanks re RUBY MURRAY song,
Yes, she was a part of the past.

BTW,
I can imagine Wales looking gorgeous in May..

It's just history repeating itself, don't you think so Grace?

All in the name of religion. So we can only hope for the best for
those kidnapped and all those like them.

I am far from a war monger, but would hate for nobody to do nothing.(grammar)!

Everywhere looks glorious here as I am sure it does in our sister country.
May is reaping the rewards of the April showers..and adding a few of her own.

Am off to the Vets tomorrow, I look forward to that run, although it takes up the
whole afternoon as they don't go by appointment, and it is always crowded.
Last time I went I was in there for hours, there was the dearest little boy who
was fascinated by the cats....he was also fascinated by door handles and kept on
locking the door, I noticed his mother said to him 'come over here, Mr. Jangles
will be here in a minute' and the child fled to her! One occasion I said it
myself to him and his little legs scampered off fast as they could carry him, lol,
hope Mr. Jangles was a good guy and not some kind of threat!

Anyway, will see lots of scenery en route...just going for a check up for two of the
babies!

You enjoying this weather Grace, and Ali??

El,
You'll laugh at this, when I mentioned WALES in my last post,
Just after that I went into the kitchen,
put the radio on, as usual...and did a double take when I heard a male voice
Say 'Were you thinking of Wales,
At first, I thought the house was haunted, Ha ha! But no, it was just an ad on radio
for various holidays !

We must be in sync, as, ALSO ..tomorrow afternoon,
I'll also be at the vets! have an appointment made for Ali's annual
Injections plus kennel cough treatment(she hates that one)
The minute I take her there, she KNOWS and wants to bolt!
won't come out from behind me, but of course, they are so highly
trained they are lovely to her and always manage to coax her out!

Yes, we're both enjoying this weather, cool enough but lovely
To look at..

'Mr Jangles'-
lol
Nice story:)

LADY EL..........

Day five of the Rochester Lilac Festival begins Tuesday, and as warm as it promises to be it might be the prefect day to see what they've got in store.

For you vino lovers, Tuesday begins the festival's Wine and Chocolate pairing. It's back for a second time this year.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, visitors can taste more than 150 vintages from more than 30 winemakers.

For only $15, wine will be "perfectly paired" with gourmet food, cheeses and of course, chocolate.

Also on tab for Tuesday, performances from Spencerport High School Jazz band, MoChester a Live classic album: Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon and much more.
