I suppose now that Ivanka Trump has been found out sending hundreds of official emails through a private server, it is now inevitable that she is set on a course for incarceration??

Fox News Sunday – Chris Wallace was combative…..almost…..
Sunday, 18th November 2018

He asked all the right questions, stood together with CNN and the rest of the “fake press” but if it had been a British interview there’d have been some tough backup questions.

At around 7 minutes in, Wallace barely hides exasperation when he said “The idea that you call us the enemy of the people…..we’re all together…..when you call CNN and The New York Times….we’re in solidarity Sir…..”

The whole clip is worth watching.

How utterly awful that the President forgot the name of the town destroyed by fire and called it “Pleasure”…..

How utterly awful that the President forgot the name of the town destroyed by fire and called it “Pleasure”…..instead of “Paradise”.

Quite how he could make such a mistake, one cannot imagine but I feel sorry to the people counting on his support and empathy.

I also feel sorry for the President – a very embarrassing and painful moment for him no doubt. Perhaps a reaction to the shock of what he saw around him.

Our thoughts go out to all those lost in the fires in California…..

With, now, over 1000 people missing; this unprecedented event shocks the world.

The destruction of an entire town is something we cannot begin to understand here.

RIP to all those who have lost their lives and our heartfelt sorrow to those who have lost family and whose appear on our screens every night surviving in tents and just wanting to go home…..

One hopes the authorities can do something quickly to relieve the conditions these poor people are enduring.

Betrayal…..”HER” deal is NOT better than “NO DEAL”……

Who can you ever trust in politics again after the farrago of rubbish that we were conned with yesterday as our Prime Minister gave away our democratic rights?

Our this so-called “deal” to leave the EU has turned out rather like the occasion Pooh got stuck half in and half out of Rabbit’s house!!

Under the proposal we pay 39bn GBP to leave but remain locked-in to EU rules for as long as it suits them, with no ability to make our own deals with third parties.

This is not what we voted for in June 2016.

Best go for “NO DEAL”, keep the 39bn, cut ourselves adrift and call the bluff of the soothsayers crying “woe”.

Ghostly Sculptures in Slimbridge Churchyard commemorate 100 years since the end of “The Great War…..”
Tuesday, 13th November 2018

The village of Slimbridge, south of Gloucester, is best known as being a home for migrating birds who flock to the marshy area on the banks of the River Severn. Its a “Mecca” for Birdwatchers or “Twitchers” !

This weekend (11th November 2019), to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War, local Sculptor, Jackie Lantelli, has struck a moving, powerful and extremely poignant chord with her beautiful but harrowing installation of ghostly sculptures in the Churchyard at Slimbridge. The soldiers, made from chicken wire, stand at the foot of the graves of the fallen.

It’s not just a name on a grave any more. You’ve got an actual physical thing, and it makes you think this was actually a person,” Jackie said.

A wonderful and moving experience for all that visited including the guys from the recycling truck, all of whom respectfully photographed and admired the display in a few minutes momentarily “stolen” from their hard days work. One of them said to me:

We won’t be seeing the like of this again for another 100 years but now I must go back to my bins…..”

…..another touching moment when you realise this may have happened 100 years ago but the words
Lest We Forget” still hang true

NOTE – I should add that the music on the video…..the Hymn “Abide with Me” was written by the Vicar of Brixham – a fishing town just four miles away from where I was born and bred in Devonshire, England !
