  • Magda K: I already sent you an email 3 days ago. Maybe I sent it wrong. I find your program very complicated. Now I know Why I stopped login in the last time. I figured I give it another try, because I like the site, and the people. I am trying hard.

...yes it was me, :) I borrowed it from a posting member of my UK site...
Strange to hear of your Irish day at the races...for most of my working career was cashiering and taking bets on the horses...Do you remember the famous hat lady...Gertrude Shilling, she wore outstanding hats to the Royal Ascot Races...

I have been glued to the tv for the last couple of hours...The Commonwealth Day Service...all the Royals attended apart from Prince Philip who has now retired from duty...I of course got up from my sofa and stood to attention as they played our National Anthem, ( yes even I could do that with my MS ) but he who shall remain nameless sat down all through it stuffing his face with his mid- day snack...even if he hadn't been eating he still would have stayed seated... ::)

Link...Gertrude Ethel T Shilling, socialite, born March 3 1910; died October 13 1999...
Some of her head turning hats...

Thank you Jeanne P-FlaJean and Marilyne for taking the time to watch the half hour footage...

Half hour documentary produced for the BBC in 1992 that has proven to be very popular from its first broadcast, and continues to attract interest from across the world in 2018...Margaret Gallagher from Belcoo, Co Fermanagh, N. Ireland, enjoys her rural lifestyle, living without modern amenities...

And I bet she is one of the healthiest people around, as in lifestyle - location.... in health, mind and spirit...She has a much healthier glow than her UK based sister...

Jack wv... is it my imagination but does Mimi look fatter to me? if so, you must be feeding her well...or maybe time for the groomers to shed some of her fur...she does look very cuddle-able, I could give her one of my cuddles quite easily...I love your choice of setting...

A warm welcome Carolyn...sorry to say your name is not ringing any bells with me but then again, I joined this site a year after Pat our founder set it up, guess been a member for 5 or 6 plus years...

Yes sadly we have lost several members during this time, of course some have left, and some have passed away, too many to even think of...

..." Torch " singers is-was a new one on me, I am wondering if it is a similar term to our " Crooners " although they more belong to the males...both are referring to a " sentimental " style...

Rammel... got me inquisitive with your mention of " Torch Singers " never heard of that term before so had to look it us and here  it is..." These (mainly female) singers are known for singing torch songs in a bluesy, jazzy, sultry way to bring out the sensual tones of the voice.."

...that song was also made famous by Australian singer Frank Ifield ( 1962 ) known for his yodelling...then later by Slim Whitman also known for his yodelling...but agree, more in a country and western style..

I should have posted this Valentines day...14 February...

Best Friends...
by Ron Carnell...

One hand in mine, my hand in thine,
We walk through life's stark shadow,
Two as one and one combine,
To fight the night's dark battle.

My strength to thee, and thine to mine,
Our fervor never fallow,
Two friends are one by co-design
To face our common morrow.

I pledge my trust, thy trust is mine,
Through life's deep joy and sorrow,
One for all and all align
And this our common motto.

Best friend of mine, and mine to thine,
No greater love to follow,
Two as one and one define
A friendship to the marrow...

Not the correct month for posting this but a friend on my UK forum posted it...not a poem I have come across before....

" The Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing is a war memorial in Ypres, Belgium, dedicated to the British and Commonwealth soldiers who were killed in the Ypres Salient of World War I and whose graves are unknown. The memorial is located at the eastern exit of the town and marks the starting point for one of the main roads out of the town that led Allied soldiers to the front line. Designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield and built and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the Menin Gate Memorial was unveiled on 24 July 1927."

You might also find this link of interest as well...
" ‘Anon.’ no longer: the author of ‘Man at Arms’ revealed.

Man at Arms

What are you guarding, Man-at-Arms?

Why do you watch and wait?

'I guard the graves, said the Man-at-Arms

I guard the graves by Flanders farms

Where the dead wil rise at my call to arms,

And march to the Menin gate'.


'When do they march then,Man-at-Arms?

Cold is the hour-and late'

'They march tonight' said the Man-at-Arms'

With the moon on the Menin gate.

They march when the midnight bids them go.

With they're rifles slung and their pipes aglow,

Along the roads, the roads they know,

The roads to the Menin gate.


'What are they singing, Man-at-Arms,

As they march to the Menin gate?

'The Marching songs', said the Man-at-Arms,

That let them laugh at fate.

No more will  the night be cold for them,

For the last tattoo has rolled for them, And their souls will sing as old for them, As they march to the Menin gate.

~ Anon.

At around 6.50am this morning ( 15 minutes ago ) I had just let Toby out for his morning toilet and stood at the back door and watched a large bird formation overhead our valley...what a wonderful sight and sound of small birds, and of course by the time I got to the bedroom to get my camera they had gone....
