If you're stuck in traffic, why get all upset and curse? You'll get there when you get there and cursing won't change that ---- take in the autumn colors and listen to some music.

Good day to all!

Good morning to you Quinny. Have a great Wednesday.
Ah, yes. Instead of road rage, put on some Seals & Croft. "Summer Breeze"

Of autumn ... wow Quinny, that's a big pile of punkins and squash!

And good Wednesday to all coming by for ... El's kitchen best coffee!

Joining in the recent short debate about the Troubles in Ireland....mercifully now relatively calm, but it
also made life very difficult in England in the 70's
I cannot count on one hand the number times I myself
have been in a building which had to be evacuated due
to a 'bomb scare'...
Until recently, if not still in force, the streets of N. Ireland are sectioned off by 'peace walls' separating the two religions.....but this has been taken to a totally new level with this really beautiful idea of a 'peace wall garden'....

Good afternoon, Cuz El. Living walls ... very cool!

What a lovely colorful scene in your avatar also. A few trees have burst in full color -- reds or oranges mostly -- around here, but so many more are slowly turning.

Denny & Dear Deer Whisperer -- how wonderful we can all just get along in spite if being from 1 blue state and 2 red. Who says conservatives and liberals can't get along?! The three of US should be in Congress....oh no wait, I'd still be outnumbered...
Risking over-simplification, in reality I'm "blue to purplish" in a "red to purplish" state.

Several Indiana cities of different size categories have Democrat mayors, and some with Democrat majority city councils, and often those Dems have conservative influences. State governance has been from both parties over the years. Counties governance trend "red". Representation trends "red" in the U.S. House of Representatives.

For several years in recent past, Indiana had a Republican and Democrat Senator until Sen. Bayh (D)-- a former Indiana governor -- chose not to run for re-election. The moderate Republican Senator Lugar was defeated in the Spring primary, if the Republican is elected in the general, both Republican Senators of Indiana will be in the Tea Party's pocket.

Thank you -- feel better soon. I had it while back and fortunately got rid of it. Still contemplating if a flu shot is worth it.

Wonderful ! That's not something everyone can brag about!!!
And thank you Grace for sharing your experiences earlier. I'm a sponge and love to learn about people in general and folks in other countries in particular. I tend to think for the most part we're all the same - just trying to live our lives, support out families and enjoy a little bit of life.
I'm one of those Americans who hasn't traveled much outside the continental US, not so much for lack if interest but for lack of money. In my limited experience I've found one big city really isn't all that different from any other.
No place has a rosy, peaceful history unfortunately but on the other hand it makes us who we are. The trick as they say is to learn from history or we're destined to repeat it.
Why we celebrate Columbus Day in the US is anyone's guess. He was a brute to put it nicely. "the people's history of the US" by Howard Zinn is a fabulous read. There are some who criticize the book but I have seen some info repeated in other sources especially how the native Americans were treated.
Well there's my philosophic diatribe for the evening......or in your case morning.
Have a good rest of the week and Kudos to your Grammy winner!!
My husband's grandfather played on the Chicago Cubs baseball team in the mid-1900s as well as for some other minor league teams.
Thanks again Ms Quinn,
and indeed, as you rightly say,
NO country is blemish free when it comes to history,
but, we have to make the best of everything..

The Grammy was a great asset to my son in his line
of work, he was [and still is] inundated after that!
it was just a lucky combination of luck/talent at
that time..

Thank you DW, I understand your post and
take your point, renewed congrats are always
easy to take too(:

El,
Don't worry in the least,
it might console you to hear, the other day,
I was sending a get well' message to someone I know
as well as i know cyber names of the regulars here,
when i had it finished and in the envelope
NO WAY could I remember her full address!

I just couldn't believe it!
senility was the first thing to spring to mind..

I left it a while [as they tell you to
do in this type of situation, when it suddenly
pops into the head] but it DIDN'T!

I had to go to rounds top look it up!

see! it happens us all..

lol, well I don't know about 'all'
but it happened me.. lol

Glad the flu folks had is on it's way out.

warm greetings to everyone here.

Good morning Grace. I had a wonderful hunting trip. I saw 13 deer and 4 of them were trophy bucks. El will be pleased to know they were out of bow range ;) I saw one mule deer. They are very large deer with ears like a mule :)

Watched the first episode of Boardwalk Empire last night, OMG, it was ultra scary, really good! I was so relieved when Gyp Rosetti handed over the little dog, Regina, to Margaret! Nucki seems to have changed a lot, don't you think?(don't give anything away now will ya, you are ahead of us here)...
Never knew Bruce Willis was a musician...that man has so much going for him...:)
What is it you are having to collect from Georgetown? Hope you got that sorted, nothing worse than having to make a journey unecessarily...I sometimes have repeat 'scripts sent by post for the cats, but twice now they have gone astray. I don't like to suggest they get proof of postage, but then again I don't want any onus to fall upon me.
Boardwalk again tonight....I have never known an hour fly by so quickly....
Hope you are having a brilliant weekend.....Luvsya <3
Good afternoon, Lady El ... I missed Sunday nights episode of Boardwalk Empire and forgot to watch it on Ch131.com on Monday because I was coming back on the tour bus from Oklahoma from the Choctaw Casino in Durant Oklahoma ... it was a great weekend of fun and frivolity, LOL ... By Tuesday, when I remembered it, it had had been replaced by some other show so therefore I have not seen the 3rd episode, drats ... so you'll have to tell me what went on ...
Nothing much in Georgetown, just my trial pair of contacts and now I'll have to have my opthamologist write up a prescription and MAIL it to me because 3's a charm and I think that is the correct prescription that will work for me ... 3 trips is enough out of my way and I think they'll work for me ... I had a blast at Choctaw Casino ... broke even ... didn't lose, didn't win ... made some really good buys on sales they were liquidating on their summer stuff ... bought a beautiful Brighton wallet for my niece and some really cool stuff for my nephew ... they'll be pleased when I fly to Atlanta a week from today to visit them for almost a week ... it'll be good to see them again ... I have sompe pretty good photos of my Choctaw trip on my Facebook I put up yesterday afternoon ... nothing to flashy but I did have loads of fun ... Met a very fun couple in their 70s who invited me to join their non-profit seniors organization ... they're quite lively and fun so I may think of joining them once in awhile ... what a lovely pair they were ... Well, I just get going as there are things to do today ... Lovely seeing you today ... Enjoy every bit of your day ... Much love, FC <3 ...

What a beautiful thing!!!! I've seen smaller scale in the botanic garden I mention, but never anything of that scale. I have to view it again on my PC instead of the phone for a better view.
It didn't do it justice really, it really stood out in the inner city
landscape. I should love to see it, it has been planted to embrace all, both Protestants and Catholics, I don't fall into either category being Interdenominational, but I 'look' Catholic. I don't know if Grace will agree with me, but I do believe it is possible to judge one's religion by appearence. Strange as that sounds.
I was talking to some Irish ladies some time ago, in the restaurant at the hospital actually, and one of them told me ...'you have the 'look'.

Who are you again?!!!(giggling) Honestly Grace, I have surprised
myself forgetting such a thing, thanks for the reassurance though,
I do appreciate that, I think one tends to worry more when friends
or relatives of ours, such as you and I have, who have tragically
been struck down with Alzheimers. But I think we are both most unlikely to ever reach that stage, and thank the Lord we are as mentally fit as we are. Still cross with ,myself for forgettin'.
Agreed that no country is blemish free when it comes to history....
it took my coming here to live to learn of my own countries hand in things.

Jerry Sandusky, former assistant football coach at Penn State University and head of a now-defunct Second Mile charity for young boys was sentenced to essentially a life sentence in prison for child molestation related convictions. He is eligible for parole at 98 years of age.
Two university administrators are awaiting trials for covering up information about Sandusky's behavior conveyed to them.

'Afternoon Flower...although late evening here as I speak...well
it's great to see you and to hear what you have been up to, are
the casinos still owned by the American Indians? I know they are
in Atlantic City as my friend in the RW occasionaly visits them.
Sounds good fun.
Where would you go to meet up with the couple you met, do they live
in your area? Nice when you gel like that, a couple we met on holiday in Portugal were around that age, they were Scottish and really good fun, I nearly died laughing when I saw Peter and this chap singing Kareoke, they sang 'The Wonder of You' and I thought he was taking the
Micheal, hahahaha
Went to the hairdressers this morning, had my hair done in a 'Vidal Sassoon' type bob, next week I will have steaks put in.....
Oh, I decided on a new microwave rather than an iphone, it's being delivered tomorrow, it's a combination microwave so I can use it as a regular oven, and also has a grill, it will be handy and hopefully save on the cooking costs not to mention the time.
That's all the news, not very exciting, but all I got....lol
Very very nice to see you again.....Much Love from me...<3

I don't know Grace's opinion on the topic but I guess I think it's the thing features - historically Italians, Irish and Polish were Catholics; Germans were generally Lutheran; Greeks, Orthodox; and of course Jewish is both the ethnicity and the religion. I have friends from the Philippines and they are Methodist --- it's predominantly either Methodist or Catholic there.

I hadn't thought about physical features associated with a religion, I just always thought certain ethnicities tended to practice this one, while another group practiced that one.

To paraphrase William Shakespeare "the first thing we do let's kill all the Republicans"

Social conservatism has no business in American politics. It violates the constitution -- the part about the alleged pursuit of life liberty and happiness. Oh wait, I forgot the Constitution provides that "all white Anglo Saxon Protestant Men" are created equal....women, ethnic minorities, and non-Christians be damned!
