Unlike certain other countries we don't have to boast about our cheeses as we know they are simply the very best - its a debate however which of Stilton and Cheddar is the absolute best.


(One thing that is beyond debate it that Dunlop is the one we gave the world so they could have a good laugh....)

Sorry Julie, I know some of us have been fortunate in having to work tomorrow, while others are less so and have to be at home, or worse - out shopping....

Ya know, you English chaps are quite the friends.
Although the US patriot I happen to be, I think it's a bit sorry that we parted on such poor terms many years ago.
We might be quaffing together.

When I was on the boats, I and my shipmates raised quite a few with our British and Aussie counterparts. I distinctly remember one night at the Waltzing Matilda pub and the Kangaroo Pub in Kowloon, Hong Kong (along with quite a few I only vaguely remember (8{). And there were several times when the Aussies visited Pearl Harbor, and the time on USS James Monroe when we made port-calls at HMS Faslane and at Edinburgh. And the next patrol, when we called at HMCS Shearwater in Halifax.....

And of course, we do it here, virtually, all the time.

Speaking of which, I could do with a pint of John Courage Ale, thank you very much.

Tomorrow is the big day. We're placing Oonah next to her daddy. They've put her at the cemetary in Wijer, where we used to live because at that moment I couldn't give my permission to put her next to Seppe, who's at the cemetary of Paal, where my father-in-law lives but now everything is finally arranged. Hope the kids won't be too sad tomorrow...

I was so touched by Lisa. She took Oonah on her lap in the car and was singing to her and telling her she missed her so much and how she wished Oonah was still here. It was a very emotional moment.

Yoko said she didn't understand how Oonah could be in that tiny jar. I explained her those were Oonah's ashes but she didn't understand it and I couldn't bring myself to telling her, her sister was 'burned'. Too cruel for a kid so young.
