HAHAH! We did both ... we kept the wedding down to under $6000 then spend $8000 on the trip to Europe ...

The dress was $1500 ...
These kids today! They spend the money on the wrong things.....like throwing a huge party for the relatives!

so that part referring to "equality of all races, creeds and religions" matters the least?

I have an original Keith Jarrett, the Japanese version, that I purchased in Japan for 50 US dollars. I have yet to price it with a dealer. However, I say the cd version for 188.00 US!
I will keep my LP.
it's interesting to note that the more valuable records are not necessarily of the top bands ... the lesser known artists but ones with a certain following are more valuable.

On a much more serious note

and Good Morning.. everybody.

I'm between two minds about the whole JIMMY SAVILE
controversy,
I followed it as best I could,
and of course, there are very many things
I haven't a clue about on the face of it,
and all it entails,
but..

what I do find very questionable is this...

All of a sudden people seem to be coming
out of the woodwork, from all sides presenting examples
of 'his weakness' added to ... hospital staff, it has been reported, used tell the children to pretend
to be asleep, when he was due a visit, because,
it's said, they were not happy about his behaviour
with the children?????

What?

and they never did a SINGLE thing about it back then, most odd... and,
when one considers, nearly 100 folks now
[at a guess]by now have come forward
WHEN THE MAN IS DEAD, and stated their
negative experiences, at his hands,
and EVERY SINGLE ONE had an excuse,
when asked 'WHY did you not report it'

Don't get me wrong,
I haven't a clue about the man Jimmy Savile,
so I'm not sticking up for him..
hardly remember him on TV,

I wasn't there to see what went on back then..

Neither is HE here now to speak for himself..

all I'm saying is,
how is it EVERYONE concerned had a different reason
as to why they didn't report his behaviour
when the time was right> 'back then'
that in itself, is quite odd to my way of thinking.

Good Morning Grace,

It does seem you are not aware that Jimmy Savile was questioned
in a documentary as to his behaviour in various parts of the
country, he categorically denied any wrongdoing.

Last night, I am told, a Detective Inspector spoke up on the tv.,
who said he was told about J.S's 'behaviour' in the 60's and 70's
he passed it on the his superiors, but they did nothing about it.

Like yourself, I find it most odd that the nurse who was a patient
at the time, witnessed him abusing a young female patient who had
brain surgery, was very vulnerable, but the nurse/patient who was
apparently incapacitated at the time, did not make an complaints
at a later date.

It seemed everybody turned a blind eye...for material gain?

Incidentally, he wasn't alone. There have been more revelations
about others in the profession, sadly.

Good Morning Folks,

The car passed it's MOT yesterday, so that was a day well spent.

The new microwave came and I am trying to fathom it out, I will be using it instead of my convection oven, well, that was the idea, but being a convection oven, grill and microwave it will take some getting used to.

I found some fabulous recipes online, some from a French Chef...then I found this lady, and love her,
I can relate to her, lol,so I am starting with this one today.....:)

Another example of how different the laws are in our respective countries. Recently two policewomen were answering a call to what they had been led to believe, was a 'domestic' incident, both of them were lured into a trap and shot, followed by a grenade attack.
This was in my home town of Manchester, Lancashire. The 'perp' was already on the run for shooting a father and his son, and handed himself in to the police after this atrocity.

I find it all pretty fascinating and like to learn about people. We may think we had an ordinary family or childhood but when you star looking, it can get interesting.

Would be Olympians, Grammy winners, athletes....what an impressive, eclectic mix.

Thanks for this El,
I appreciate your reply,
yes i remember hearing something vaguely
about his being questioned before.

I agree, the example you gave re the woman who
witnessed a patient being abused [saw her on SKY]
NOW speaks up, I would be annoyed with her for that..
not afraid to go before the people on TV now,
but to remain silent then!!
and the people in the hosp in charge to
remain silent and 'take a chance'

Inexcusable,'I' think:

Anyway,
GREAt you got your MOT, must be a great relief -
we have to have ours done every year noe-
before it used to be ev 2 years!

Yes, the MICROWAVE is an asset, but not for everything
as we know.

Wishing you a pleasant wkend..

Lovely Autumnal day this side!

Pretty much. And I mean that in truth. It wasn't until 1920 women in the US could vote; as recently as 1960s blacks were barred from a lot both by custom and by law. Zoning laws are used to keep mosques or black churches out of town, and also homes for the elderly and homes for mentally challenged.

So no, even today the 'equality' in the constitution does not apply to all US citizens.

I mean that in truth, not sarcasm it jest. And as a women I will only point out that in recent years the republicans have in fact implemented laws in many states to stifle a woman's healthcare and family planning options -- forget controversial abortion, in some places we cannot get both control.

I find it misogynistic and not much better than what we complain about the muslims and other cultures in their treatment of women.

You had mentioned that tragedy with the policewomen. I cannot imagine an unarmed police force ....

'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
Good morning, Lady El ... the couple I met meet at a secure location which has it's own name and is registered with the IRS and has it's own tax ID #(I've already checked it out) and is in close proximity to where my RW BFF lives ... they play all sorts of card games, domino games, Bunko, Farkle and various and assorted board games along with outings at the movie theater or casino trips such as we took ... a very lively group they are ... I felt honored they liked me and my personality to ask me to join their group ... Obviously, I would be the baby of the group but I've always hung out with individuals older than I ... As I said, it's a non-profit organization much like the organization that I'm the co-chairman of which is equivalent to (vice-president) but we call it co-chairman ... we're not as active as this group is but maybe I can get some ideas from the new group I'm thinking of visiting ... sounds like fun to me ...
So, you chose the microwave over the iphone ... good choice, less time in the kitchen works for me, ha! The iphones are over-rated anyway ... my smart-phone is smarter than me and I don't think I like that, haha ...
About the casinos, I've been to Atlantic City back in the 70s a few times, not sure who owned them back them, been to Gulfpost, Mississippi, Coushatta Louisiana and to the one in Choctaw, Oklahoma ... Now, for sure the Choctaw Casino is owned by the Indians and I suspect the others are as well, but do not quote me on that ... I pretty much suspect it, though!... Nonetheless, it's pretty much fun and I like to visit them ...
The baseball playoffs are on ... They've been running late ... The Yankees and Orioles game was well into extra innings (13) last night and tied and FOUR hours when I finally fell asleep ... IDK who won but I certainly hope it was the Orioles!... Justin Verlander was pitching for Detroit against the Oakland A's and were up 2-0 and I hope Detroit won that game ... so much baseball and not enough channels ...
NO COMMENT re: the DEBATE between Biden and Ryan ...
It's to be 86 today and it's been rather pleasant around here ... My lantana is fully bloomed and beautiful ... Jax is eating the pomegranate falling off the trees and my amaryllis is sprouting some new leaves for some Christmas blooms, hopefully ...
Reading the latest 2012 Lee Child book, A Wanted Man ...
Taking Jax to the vet for his annual check up ... PoohBear, bless his heart, took to an upper respirator infection ... My live-in pet sitter had the presence of mind to take him to the vet, called me at the casino and I gave her my credit card number to pay for his care and anti-biotics and steroids ... He's not coughing as bad as she said he was ... Thanks goodness she knows my pup and thank goodness he's getting better. That's all. Love FC
