Morning folks

evening Pat......dry and warm this morning. 15 degrees even 16 expected today and most of the country to get the same I think.  Terrible news about those bushfires.  I just remember hot days on the beach at this time of year.  keep safe there 

a walk to the beach in the dark again earlier to clear away the cobwebs.

 Might nip down to gc later....manager assurred me there would be bargains.  I did semi hide something last week but doubt it is still there

Downton vs Eastenders

Posted: 25/12/2015 at 20:34

Still chatting here......

my dad's family was Downtonish.  He hated it ...prob where I get it from.  I remember well how they looked down on, ridiculed and despised the poor.  Bootlicking toadyism is not for me nor should it be for you. It is amazing to me that so many know their place and hero  worship this priviledged few........just  as many abused folk adore their abusers.    They regard us with contempt so, please,  unless we value ourselves properly the class system and progs like Downton will thrive. 

Just consider the guy who writes the series......pomposity personified, " upper class" better than thou  yet profiting from the plebs

eastenders is bad but most people are much better than this and those "toffs" 

ah! That's better . Should fluff a few feathers but in a nice way I hope

Downton vs Eastenders

Neither......Downton is about inherited class, snobbery and oneupmanship.  Why would any of us watch it.  Would coloured folk enjoy watching a prog about slavery?  Eastenders, whenever I see it, is awful. 

However, enjoy whatever it is you watch guys

We went out to see ISS.....It's Santa's Sleigh ....but even with clear skies couldnt see it.  Thought Santa was at door earlier....he has a beard and red hat ....but he looked like my neighbour so I wasn't fooled or excited or anything.  Mind you he did say "ho ho ho" so ..........   Then again he drove off in a Honda.  Life is so hard to understand

Holly is tough. You could do it now and I am sure it will be ok.  It is what I would do...job done then.  However, early spring is prob better Christmas holly if you are at all concerned
