I don't even know where to put this, I am not grieving I am just needing to get this off my chest. Be warned I may ramble...

My husbands Aunt is in the hospital, she has terminal cancer, 3 kinds in fact, bone being 1 kind and it is extremely painful for her.

2 weeks ago she opted for assisted death. Paperwork is all in place, and tomorrow she meets her maker (so to speak). She told my husband 2 weeks ago, she is in so much pain, and does not want to linger and... [Read More]

The BBC has started making reference to the LGBTQIA+ community.

This is beyond unsayable. I have tried reeding the passage aloud and whether I use the letters or the full text (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or asexual and others) it screws up my sentences.

From now on I'm going to quite legitimately add myself to the acronym as an undecided, and the term for... [Read More]

What a pleasing actor he was over the years. The first time I saw him act was as a doctor throwing caution to the winds with an Armenian sheep. His talent was clearly extraordinary.

The Australian Federal police Raided our national broadcasting company offices yesterday. a couple of days before raided the home of a prominent journalist (completely different matter) I keep saying "it has begun" I knew this government would do this. Something is very wrong . When the polls put Labor ahead and the new PM says "this is a miracle" because even he didn't think he had a chance.

That chap without whom there would be no Brexit Party, yes? Nigel. The chap who can't go walkabout without some random protester tipping a pint of McDonald's Sugared Vomit over his fresh-pressed suit.

Thank you Mr Farage, you achieved several positive outcomes at the European Election last week.

First of all, UKIP. Remember UKIP? You used to run UKIP if I remember. Right wing thugs.

Moral outrage

May 26, 2019 - 11:51 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
I think - I may be wrong, it's only a suggestion - that if you handed round a questionnaire asking what aspects of eighteenth century life were moral outrages on a scale way past any other, the most common answer would be slavery.

My other suggestion is that if you ask the same question about today's society when it has taken on the same aspect of "the way things used to be in the old days", there will be a dead-heat tie between slavery, imprisonment and killing things... [Read More]

Costa Rica in mid-November, which coast first?

May 17, 2019 - 3:34 AM - by hardus77
Hello all

We'll be travelling to Costa Rica (first trip to the Americas, yay) next November for a 3-week trip.

Since we have a fair amount of time, for the first time my main questions are not about what to see but in which order. We are flying in and out from SJO, so logistically speaking the first idea is to do a circular route.

Freddie Starr RIP

May 10, 2019 - 4:44 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
I am moderately certain I never saw Freddie Starr perform, neither on stage nor on television. I'm moderately certain I never heard him sing on the radio. I suspect I have him in the same mental compartment in which I keep Bernard Manning and Jim Davidson.

I'm sorry he was hounded out of the country. The press creates and the press destroys, long live tabloids so long as I never have to pick one up.

The English are in many ways an unattractive people.

So, finally, all the health emergencies have been dealt with, and the SunDancer is fully functional, and we are heading off on a wandering.
I will be dropping in now and again to see how things at FG are going, but will probably not be too regular for a while.

We plan to avoid the big cites and Cold weather.
I'll let y'all know how that works out.

City of Los Angeles hostile to Civil Liberties

Apr 26, 2019 - 12:54 PM - by tude dog
tude dog's Avatar
The city of Los Angeles decided to eliminate the Natural, Civil and Constitutional Rights of many of its citizens, that being the right to assemble and petition the government. This is not so much about the NRA but the arrogant City Council of Los Angeles.

I can just imagine the outrage had the action been taken against any number of activities organizations.

Special news report the cathedral was going through a renovation could be a contributor to the structure fire.
flames are 250 foot high - doesn't look as if any attempt is being made to fight the fire.

Prom night

We went out to dinner on a Saturday night - restaurants are very busy - check in get a beeper. We're seated dinner is delicious. The workers are setting up tables for a large group.
When here it comes - a parade of young ladies in their gowns and the young men in beautiful suits - it was sweet.
I had a flash back - way back (1974) when I was 16 yrs. old in my gown for my Prom.

Did you attend a Prom - if not why?
