Did you hear about the huge explosion at the cheese factory in France ?  De-Brie everywhere...



 If I have learned anything in the last year, it is never lie to an X -Ray technician. They can see right through you.

I must have gone to the palais many many times but after watching the you tube movie.I hardly rrcognized the place. They must have jazzed the place up from the days I went   there (!942-1950)















































I must have gone to the Palais many many times, and seeing the you tube  mavie I they must have jazzed the place up somewhat. I would never have recognized ti at all. I'm talking of the 1943-50 era.

No northing is sacred anymore  People think if something is over 50 yrs old it should be demolished. It is haappening everywhere Solution?  Justfight back as much as you can.
I looked with interest at the pictures of the Park ,I remember as a child sitting on the stones in front of the stocks. They were worn down then by thousands of folk sitting on them.  Which was the same at Ladysmith barracks where the Sentries marched 20 paces up and down all day and the walkway was worn away.  Is it still to be seen?

dj...  Give yourself a thought,      1. Trump believe it or not will run away with the Presidency . 2. The recent squad of four AOC,Tlaib Pressley and Omar will eventually sink the Democrat ship. 3 In your list of failures you did not show his wins.   Many first's in over 30 years.
The American public are deathly afraid of "Socialism" I have asked many many US people. 4. Voters in the small states back Trump.so he will win most electoral votes. {I am sure you do not like that system}?.

For all you Trump haters We here in the North AmericaThink Trump is the best President in a long time. Look at the economy Brilliant. We Canadians wish he was here instead of the useless Trudeau.   Sure he may be a jokester but he is not a politition   and that is why he is great.
The Brits brought a lot of the unhappiness on their own with allowing mass immigration. Do you not realize the in less that a 100 years  Gone will be the monarchy ,Muslims will rule over you the numbers are inescapable. Even today cities are ruled by anti-British people.

 If at first you don't succeed.... maybe try doing it the way your wife told you.



 I'm currently reading a series of books about rock climbing. Wow that first one was a real cliffhanger.



 Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman
