I don't have strong views about this issue, but in general I agree with

Let children be children. Put the parents on the catwalk if they want to compete and see how they feel about it at the end of the day.

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.

'It is perfectly possible for today's students to form a rigorous overview of love, sex and relationships from the complete works of Shakespeare...Romeo and Juliet for underage sex, Titus Andronicus for population control, Othello for mixed raced couples, and just about every comedy for transgender issues...'

One 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?

When I was in the military in the 80's. it was unthinkable to imagine checkpoints in America. We spoke about checkpoints in terms of the Eastern bloc. Fundamentally, checkpoints are illegal and a violation of 4th amendment and clear violation of probable cause. What happened to America the free and home of the brave? You folks have become or are being bred to be pure cowards, afraid of your own shadows...dozens of cops chasing after a little woman and blasting her after she leaves the car.

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.

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.

Hi H. Too little time and too much to read these days. Reviews will do for now. Nicely summarised, this one. M

Transience, 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".

Although this might stick in the craw for idealists, including myself, this is actually not a bad idea. A lot of drinkers or drug addicts do not want to, or simply can not change their ways. If it is oblivion they seek, then let them have it. Let doctors monitor it, get some public use out of it, and cut out the cause of the bulk of criminal activity. It could work if done with enough generosity, sympathy, and altruism, towards those who have simply lost the will to lead a sober life.

Washington Has Discredited America
By Paul Craig Roberts

If only more Americans were aghast. I sometimes wonder whether Americans like being spied upon, because it makes them feel important. “Look at me! I’m so important that the government spends enough money to wipe out US poverty spying on me and my Facebook, et. al., friends. I bet they are spending one billion dollars just to know who I connected with today. I hope it didn’t get lost in all the spam.”

Being spied upon is the latest craze of people devoid of any future but desperate for attention.


Although suggestive – and not just an American thing - there is some truth to this I think, considering social media and what some people do post there.

For example, parents. Do they really think that anyone, except for family and friends, is interested in their little princess or their tough little son, just to mention some "qualities". Maybe it’s just me not being interested, but apart from that, the little children themselves cannot give their consent and I wonder if they would give it if they were aware.

Concerning teenagers, what about parents who befriend their children on Facebook just to spy on them. I don’t do Facebook, but a mother (NL) tried to convince me of her spying on her teenage son argument. When I told her that I find it a despicable thing to do, she didn’t understand me. I might just be "not of our time", but if my parents had done so – were that possible at that time - that would not be something for which they would be thanked.

Meanwhile, the overall body is watching, and smiling in our face.

With the amount of murders done by the cops and without recourse, you could be forgiven for thinking that there was a secret edict circulating, to the effect of instilling a climate of fear, in readiness for the big day, the takeover by a police state.

I tweeted a while ago, if you want to stay alive, never ever call the cops for anything.

What a shithole of a place.

Just because almost everyone is tracking or stealing everyone’s data does not make it feel any better. The big picture is unnerving. Government knows your patterns and where to find you. Cyber-criminals have gigantic new black markets for millions of digital data. Social media companies are aggressively packaging and selling user profiles behind people’s backs. And no digital footprint or activity disappears.

Privacy is vanishing before our very eyes, keystroke by keystroke.

Professor Grundy reserved his most scathing words for the police forces and bureaucrats, who he said may have known what was going on but did nothing to stop it.

Above all, they tell of a complete lack of love in institutions where bewildered children could not comprehend why they were being treated in such a way or why their families had left them in the hands of the nuns.

As for the rest of it!

I had three sons with my second husband. Today I have all the soft cuddly toys I want, a room full of them. Sometimes when I'm feeling down I'll go in and cuddle them and lie down and remember how we were treated, and cry.

You won't be surprised to know, therefore, that the "blacksmith didn't get involved with this case out of concern for little Madeleine" stuff is absolutely true.Following May 3 2007 my interest and concern was not in the least sparked by the disappearance of a little girl, Madeleine McCann, since I had no greater concern for that child than I did, and do, for the thousands of completely innocent and vulnerable children who disappear or die appalling deaths world-wide every day.

Indeed the idea that I should suddenly start "caring" about a dead or vanished child not because of my own feelings or humanity but because journalists – journalists, of all people, for God's sake! – were thrusting a possibly true, possibly bullshit, story about her at me, I find absurd and distasteful. Instead my response followed pretty broadly what I've written above. Accordingly –

We all have different ideas of what a “resolution” to this case would mean. To some, it would be lengthy imprisonment for the McCanns; to others their public humiliation; to yet others, myself included, relief that deception – of us - had failed, without necessarily any punishment of the couple at all. - blacksmith

That deception has failed. That would be marvelous.

Most doctors are not much better than legalised pill pushers for big pharma. Schmoozed by reps and kept up to date at all expenses paid weekends away. There to match up your symptoms to the pill, not offer much in the way of health advice. Not that you can really blame them, they have just ten minutes to get you out of their surgery and are protected by the system as long as they stick to handing out the pills.

Let us all cross our fingers that another war is not the consequence of the insouciant American public, the craven cowardice of the presstitute media, Washington’s corrupt European puppets, and the utter mendacity of the criminals who rule in Washington.

Good morning H

It’s not my intention to drive you mad. I just like to share information, it’s an obsession, along with reading. Sort of therapy, reading and dumping. I trust Teddy’s experience and judgement and hope he ignores if not interesting.

Are you enjoying the outdoors, too? A floral carpet of wood anemones here, along with other things. Would you believe, the pot marigolds from summer 2013 kept blooming throughout the winter. Not sure if it’s a good sign though, apart from the strange colour combination.

Back to the grind, with warm wishes M

Himself said...

Good Morning Maren, and it is morning, 08:30 indeed.

You don't drive me mad in the least m'darlin, your snippets are much appreciated.

Am I enjoying the outdoors? Not as yet, it ain't been the weather, but more the point, I don't seem to have had much spare time what with sorting this place out and packing up the old one. Soon my love, soon.

I have left you a couple of screenshots from a real life crime thing on iplayer. Some young bloke bludgeoned his whole family to death, as they do over there.

I wouldn't have bothered, but for the name of the place.

The New Hope Trailer Park, Georgia.

Dutch? Baby

I’ve got a problem and it’s called a Dutch Baby. Every single time I see someone extol the virtues of that breakfast treat I want to scream it to the mountains; they simple butchered a name, that’s all!! Why does this matter so much to me?? Well, I’ve got a lot of German blood thanks to my dad’s side of the family and I know when my Grandma Bathe first prepared one of these pancakes for me and shared their history, there were no tulips or clogs in sight; nope, none. So I’m here to right a wrong; to share why this is indeed a GERMAN pancake; join my mission won’t you? :)

I haven’t followed the case, but I followed some followers to some extent and read this link http://www.alternet.org/why-i-am-totally-hooked-oscar-pistorius-murder-trial

From a comment: More than a two-minute summary of the day's events is overkill, to put it mildly. But if it bleeds, it leads, even in sports, and Oscar apparently is putting on a wonderful show for those inclined towards cheap soap opera entertainment.

Agreed. That is my unasked opinion. M
