Is anyone else beginning to think that all cruise ships are run on a shoe string and are not worth the money and are dangerous?

There are things out there that none of us fully understand. Some are more attuned to those than others.

In the late 70's I had a session with a medium and she said something will happen in a three. It could be hours, days, or weeks, but you will know, you will know. That was at 8pm. At that time I was living on my own in the ground floor of a house, the upstairs tenants were away. Almost to the minute at 11pm I put my hand on the door handle to the ground floor bedroom, to retire and

W H U M P !

There was this god almighty noise from the first floor and dust coming down the stairs. I though we had a burglar that had fallen through the roof! Gingerly creeping upstairs I discovered that an area 10ft sq of plaster had perished and dropped on the floor on the upstairs landing. Could have happened at any time but EXACTLY three hours later, just as I touched that door knob? That was scarily weird.

Ain't going to one again ....

The problem is that now Russia is not a top world power any longer, their armed forces have to be kept engaged in something or other, else most would probably defect out of boredom. Hence all this pseudo warring in their satellite states, and posturing towards Nato countries, of which there are 28 Members. Russia was part of the Warsaw Pact which ended in 1991, succeeded by the CSTO.

To a certain extent regular Russian insurgence into areas close to sovereign airspaces keeps NATO airforces at a constant state of readiness, which saves them having to carry out as much training and exercises as otherwise. But it is a very big irritation when we should be putting more attention to other activities such as predicted terrorist attacks.

But you can't totally ignore Russia.

It has the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world. It has the second largest fleet of ballistic missile submarines and is the only country apart from the United States with a modern strategic bomber force. Russia's tank force is the largest in the world, and its surface navy and air force are among the largest ones.

But their bear was castrated a long time ago, and doesn't growl any more. So I repeat, Russia piss off. Go and find something better to do with your time.

The fall out of love bit is normal day to day life.

Isn't it?

Name three things you find irritating about your partner.

Her her and her.

If you could change anything about your partner’s family, what would it be?

Them.

:-))))

We in the UK are getting thoroughly tired of your childish and pathetic playground games. So Mr. Alexander Yakovenko, you are "tolerated" as an Ambassador in this country, so kindly tell your puppets Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedevyour who presumably authorise this, to stop taking the piss.

Scotland showed the way how to make a lot of money from Nessie, can't blame others and the Colonies for wanting a slice of the action with their own versions.

The immigrant vote is to be ignored at ones peril.

Two seats will be contested at the General Election where the majority of voters were born overseas. A record four million people born abroad will be able to vote in May after a decade of mass immigration, a study predicted yesterday. The figure – up 500,000 since the last election – represents one-tenth of the electorate.

In 10 areas outside the capital at least a quarter of voters are foreign born, according to the study. Such voters will make up a third of the electorate in another 25 seats, and at least a quarter in a further 50 constituencies, according to experts at Manchester University. Their report says those born abroad are likely to hold the balance of power in 20 key constituencies – including 12 Labour marginals, six Tory seats and two held by the Lib Dems.

Large numbers arrived when New Labour was operating an ‘open-door’ immigration policy – a strategy designed, according to Labour adviser Andrew Neather, to ‘rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date’. Under arcane rules, citizens of 54 independent sovereign states can register on the electoral roll as long as they have an address in Britain. In many cases, the arrangements are not reciprocal. Britons are not allowed to vote in Canada, Australia or the three most populous countries in the Commonwealth – India, Pakistan and Nigeria.

In 2008, a report commissioned by the then prime minister Gordon Brown called for changes in the rules to prevent Commonwealth nationals without UK citizenship from voting in general elections. The report was never acted upon by the Labour Government – nor has the issue been addressed by the Coalition. MigrationWatch has suggested that ‘one possible reason’ why Labour ignored the report was that minority voters are more likely to support the party.

Sorry it's the Mail.

I am happy to confirm publicly that I am a a great believer in astrology, but to do that properly you must get a professional reading and interpretation. Just glancing at the stars in the daily papers is really silly.

Having said that, Taro is scary, so are mediums, had a couple of scares in that area. Never let it be said that I haven't explored that side of things, 'cos I have. Listening Julie :-))
