Verdun, I don't quite get the terrorist / criminal link.

I want terrorism stopped, I just don't believe that closing our borders, even if it was possible, would help.

I don't want to live in a country that tries to isolate itself from the rest of the world. I want as much variety as possible. How much poorer would my life be, if I had never tasted a chicken vindaloo!?!? The alternative is that we adopt the views of UKIP, or worse.

I can't wait for the Caribbean either Hosta.

We cannot keep terrorists out. They are already here and if the current lot go, they will be replaced by others.

A closed door policy, will not keep us safer, we need to ensure that we provide all means necessary to stop future attacks.

Morning all.

Am feeling confused and slightly numb this morning, like many others, I expect.

We are expecting severe rain, with possible flooding,  so I am about to go and check that the stream is flowing freely, with no potential blockages.

Sorry to hear your news Chicky, I do hope things start to improve. I cannot imagine what it is like to be in your situation, with the person you love the most.

In our thoughts

In the end we must believe that democracy will win. If not we will descend into the dark ages and the way of life of the majority will be destroyed by the fanatical minority.

I now believe that the ability of the security services to monitor our communications must be allowed. So what if they find out about some of the dubious sites I may visit, it may just keep me safer.

Evening all.

Miserable all day, so didn't feel guilty about curling up and reading all day.

I have won a competition on a share trading web site, which is how I try to supplement my pension. It is an iPad mini. Lovely to win something, although not sure I have much use for it.

Fairy, count me in. I have plenty of reasons to be very grateful to Mountain Rescue and have given them money in the past.

Just about time for a drink I think.

See you later.

Morning all.

Much colder today, plus wind and rain, looks like I will be curled up somewhere warm.

I have already put my seed order in to Chilterns Chicky.

Have a good day everyone.

It's my birthday

Always good to hear about Gods chosen city. Often used to like a good sing in the pub. but not usually carols.

Afternoon all.

Turned out sunny, so I have been trying to do some one armed tidying up. I had not appreciated how useless my other arm is. Trying to wield the secateurs one handed is proving very difficult.

Glad your OH is brighter chicky, his body has under gone a major shock, so it will take time. Hope he is more patient than I am.
