Found this today.
Anyone who wishes to discuss the current affairs of the Middle East should probably find Colonel Lawrence's work useful.

This is an interesting article on the subject.

The countdown is almost over. My son is getting married this Sunday, Aug. 3. For me, it's actually Saturday, Aug. 2 as we are leaving home to stay in a hotel near the wedding site & there will be a rehearsal & dinner. I'm supposed to be ready for hair & make-up at 9AM. I'm not a morning person. Today & tomorrow I have to get ready with stuff like mani/pedi, packing, etc. I carry a lot of medicines around.

I haven't been a girly girl in a very very long time.... [Read More]

To the tune of
Gilligan's Island Theme Song - YouTube

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the Skipper brave and sure,
five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour,
a three hour tour.

Shoulder Concerns

Jul 29, 2014 - 4:15 AM - by FourPart
FourPart's Avatar
As part of my diet / weight loss regime I had been regularly putting in 100 x 25m lengths at the pool each week. However about 8 weeks ago I had to cut this short & not been able to do any swimming since because of severe shoulder pains.

My Diet Nurse arranged for me to see the Practice GP who specialised in Orthopedics, who referred me to get an X-Ray, and I have a follow up appointment to see my GP (not the same one, although same practice).

There was an interesting item on the Local News this morning about how the Southampton Council are about to clamp down on Street Beggars (many of which aren't even really homeless) with a Poster Campaign with the slogan "Kindness Kills" urging people not to give to beggars, but if they want to give to text a donation the the "Kindness Kills" line, which is to be set up, which will all go towards groups that work towards getting the genuine needy out of the circle.

The Commonwealth

Jul 26, 2014 - 9:33 AM - by Bruv
Bruv's Avatar
The Commonwealth of Nations formerly The British Commonwealth, is, as far as I know a unique collection of countries.
Many are colonialised nations and former members of the British Empire.
Some present members applied for membership have no connection to the UK.
There are no ruling members just a loose charter promoting simple democracies.

Is it just an archaic anachronism ?

845. Another way to weaken the Euro (7/21/2014)

The energy supply of Europe is heavily dependent on Russia. About one third to 40% of its natural gas and oil are imported from Russia. One important gas pipe is inside Ukraine. If there is a turmoil in Ukraine, the gas supply to Europe will be affected. The economy of Europe would be weakened, so be the Euro. Thats why we saw an upheaval in Ukraine.
