It's exactly a week that we attended the wedding reception for Andrew & Becky so perhaps showing a clip or two would be appropriate...it was also the night we lost the car registration plate.
Actually, I'm unable to download the clips. This was their first dance as Mr&Mrs. Yes, I know you can't really see them...
I'll ask my son tomorrow afternoon how to download video clips and include them in a post.
It was such a bright and beautiful day today and I couldn't resist doing a few jobs outside. When Bev returned she told me off for burying her bulbs. Such a response quickly brought back the early frost. Thankfully, she later gave me a smile resulting in a major thaw. She also gave me a full bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate which kept me quiet for a while and is now all gone. I know, I can hardly believe I've polished off a whole bar...and I only gave two squares away!
I have a 20 minute speaking assignment at church tomorrow. I should have spoken a few weeks ago but the snow arrived and the meetings were cancelled. I thought I'd gotten away with it!
I wanted to say something yesterday about the apparent witch-hunt against Tony Blair and the decision to go to war with Iraq. Now's my chance.
There seems to me to be something sinister in the way the media attempts to manipulate the viewer in relation to political issues. It has evolved over the last year or so and is beginning to niggle me. Instead of just giving a report of the news, they are encouraged to give their own personal analysis which is taken as an authoritative voice and is further analysed in the studio by people who know very little, but like the sound of their own voices. What we end up with is the viewpoint of a bunch of rambling know-it alls rather than plain and simple unbiased first-hand extended news reporting... and it's their view which is presented, parcelled and passed to a gullible public as factual. We could hear the man who experienced it firsthand and are surely intelligent enough to either accept or reject his reasoning. We don't need the rest of it from babbling fools.
As far as I was aware, the decision to go to war was sanctioned by Parliament which included the opposition with all party backing, and not solely that of Mr Blair. I'm not a lover of our former Prime Minister but I think what he's being criticised of is beyond the mark...and the remit of the reporters.
I've had my moan now so I should be okay for a while.
Is there anything that niggles you? Go on, have a moan on me!
