What claim has your piety on my deference?
Good morning Maren.I thought this might be more convenient for us both.
RE http://bit.ly/1847mYNWhat do you mean benjamins? lol Deja vu.
Yes, I suppose it's getting towards that time of year.What a difference a day makes. Saturday, there were twenty odd light aircraft on the beach outside my window, on a beautiful still day. This morning, it's like Cape Horn.
I sent you a link (I think) about Spinoza, I can't find it anywhere?
I can't find it either; reminds me of When the Mind imagines its own lack of power, it is saddened by it

Ciggy break.I think I must have pressed cancel instead of publish. Can't multitask.Or as LBJ said of Gerald Ford: "He can't chew gum and fart."It was nothing major, it's just that I was watching this:Simon Schama explores the bright, hopeful moment when Enlightenment thinkers and revolutionary armies brought ghetto walls crashing down - allowing Jews to weave their wisdom, creativity and energies into the very fabric of modern life in Europe.One of the most of fruitful branches of this Jewish renaissance was in music and the stellar careers of Giacomo Meyerbeer and Felix Mendelssohn established the enduring tradition for Jewish musical prodigies. However, the remarkably successful integration of Jewish talent into the mainstream of European culture and commerce stirred up the ghosts of ancient prejudice, decked out in the new clothes of romantic nationalism and the pseudo-science of anti-semitism. The road to the hell of the Holocaust was paved by the diatribes of Richard Wagner, while the trial of Alfred Dreyfus led Theodor Herzl to conclude that without a homeland of their own, Jews would never be free of the millennia-old persecution.http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03bkmvs/The_Story_of_the_Jews_A_Leap_of_Faith/UK onlyAnd yer man Spinoza came in for a reasonable mention.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baruch_SpinozaNot a fellow I knew much about; still don't don't really, I don't seem to have had a minute since.Perhaps another rolly,and read it now.

Consistent.Have you checked the Loathsome comments Chuck?
Yes I have. Disorganized secretary.
13:26One British newspaper revealed that the “White Widow” was actually leading it and had been witnessed in a veil, “shouting instructions in Arabic”. It did not say why she should be using that language to a group who spoke Somali and, many of them, seemingly, English. Kenyan officials pointed out that the fighters were all men, although some of them had gone into Westgate pretending to be women, dressed in niqabs."One British newspaper" > The Mail (and didn't it go to town on that connection)I do read the Mail, or should I say, I suffer the Mail. My appalling, chavy younger sister takes it and drops the old ones at my mothers.She and he both (husband) are the epitome of Mail subscribers. Ghastly. Ah Pepe.But the bulk of the fighting force is essentially composed of bored teenagers bought by roughly $300 and the vision of meeting 72 virgins in paradise.Although I really shouldn't have picked up on that alone.But you know how it is?
18:18 I tweeted t'other day.17:10 I don't know how much of that to believe, it could be all for what I know.But one thing I do know, life is cheap; especially when it's someone else's.My father-in-law that was, he was out there in colonial days. Governed a prison that held the Mau Mau.

What happened to America the free and home of the brave?

Thanks Chuck.It's along those Maren, but from what I have read, it might be something to live with for a day or two until Adobe sort it out.The other option is to revert to issue 10.3, the only problem with that, is that with it being old version the download comes as a zip (as opposed to a straight download) which is full of stuff I don't understand.It's only flash player that is effected, I can get most other things.Speaking of which, F1 is about to start. So later honey bun, later.
Ah my little tulip, what are you like?A sideways fix, but a fix nonetheless.From your link.Found a simple fix. Got to uninstall programs, and uninstall (disable) the flash player 11.3 plugin...Not the player, just the plugin. Everything should work fine after that. And so it does.Many kisses upon your person.

Spain summons US ambassador over spy reportshttp://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-1-210319-Spain-summons-US-ambassador-over-spy-reportsThe European Parliament has already asked for a key EU-US bank data-sharing deal aimed at fighting terrorism to be suspended.
My eyebrow went up a shade when I saw the $228, let alone the rest of it. What a way to live. George Schwab, 62, of North Carolina, said he was "perfectly happy" with his plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield, which also insured his wife for a $228 monthly premium. But this past September, he was surprised to receive a letter saying his policy was no longer available. The "comparable" plan the insurance company offered him carried a $1,208 monthly premium and a $5,500 deductible.And the best option he's found—— on the exchange so far offered a 415 percent jump in premium, to $948 a month.
a $1,208 monthly premium That is an extraordinary amount of money to find each month.
Hi H. Too little time and too much to read these days. Reviews will do for now. Nicely summarised, this one. MTransience, memory, the sweet sadness of nostalgia, and the human ability to adapt are Ruge's themes. He regards three generations' worth of experience with vivacity and humour, and the clarity of one aware of his own ticking clock. His longing for a country with "no need of heroes" is intact, and soothed by "the indifferent, distant roar of the sea".http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/reviews/book-review-in-times-of-fading-light-by-eugen-ruge-trans-anthea-bell-8744053.htmlhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxb2YX0SmhEhttp://andrewhammel.typepad.com/german_joys/2007/01/das_lied_der_pa.html
