and now for something different... I just took a break from the computer to have me tea and I got to look at CNN on TV and it looks like all heck is breaking out in Libya with the NATO forces firing missiles like they were M&Ms on Libya. I'm so so glad that this is not a US led effort and I got to admire the British for being one of the leaders along with France in this military operation. I say this because as we all know the UK is trying to cut back on its military spending so it comes as a great sacrifice.

No Doc Martin tonight because it is plead night on PBS.

I agree with you Cheers. I am a pacifist and not pro-war but Quadaffi was going to bomb the hell out of his own people, civilians to boot, and I am very proud of the way that US, UK, France and the League of Arab Nations are handling this. The man (Quadaffi) is a complete nutter.

I really don't think that this will go on for very long. If Quadaffi is not in custody or dead by the end of next week, I shall be surprised.

I think her name is Cindy - there was a thread a couple of days ago about airplane fares being much higher than last year - and I believe Cindy's name was mentioned. Maybe you could send a note to Sue (the administrator) and she would put you in touch with the right person.

Don't forget the Canadians.......

Canada has committed six Hornets to help enforce the no-fly zone. The Canadian jets were seen at Prestwick airport in Scotland on Saturday where they landed for a refuelling stop before heading towards the Mediterranean.

I have to agree with what someone else said, 'He is either a nutter or as sly as a fox'. He's done well so far. He got a way with the bombing of the PanAm airliner and who knows what else?

I really don't understand why everyone thinks that the Allied Nations are doing such a wonderful thing in Libya. They never do squat about atrocities by leaders against their people all over Africa. They are just protecting the flow of the purest oil on the planet. IMO!

Have they really? They didn't even get an honourable mention on the stations I have been listening to. Canada doesn't have a large military and are pretty stretched in Afghanistan where they are being dessimated by roadside bombs.
He's definitely a nutter. Have you heard his interviews? He may be sly too but he's a nutter .

I know this sounds silly but I feel suddenly very British and I am extremely proud of the bravery of our British boys who are going in first to wipe out the anti-aircraft guns, control posts and other targets to save people's lives. I am a bit worried that everyone I talk to feels there is a hidden agenda.

The Buxton trip is off due to the bloomin' horrid weather.

We are going instead to Lady Hayes then to Delamere Forest for lunch.

Enjoy your Sunday lunch

It's a beautiful sunny day down in Devon.....
We have had a beautiful week all barring one day. It was my nephew's wedding yesterday which was a real fun affair. It was a second marriage so just a small affair with about 26 people. Registry office followed by a 3 course lunch at a lovely old restaurant in Exeter. Welcomed in by a glass of Pimms and then a sit down lunch . Back to their house for a bit of a party. Met some wonderful new people . A real fun day. Oh yes and the night before the Stag do ....really glad I restrained myself....there were a couple of bad hangovers. Just can't do stags the night before the wedding.
