That or we fear upsetting people of other faiths (or no faith for that matter). While in turn they have freedom to openly practice their festivals without fear of upsetting the "Christian" majority. So it can't be that can it? We live in a free and fair society. Or so I am told by the politicians.
So when the times comes, I will be wishing everyone a Happy Christmas. No doubt I'll be dragged off by the PC Brigade and given a stern talking to.

I've just watched the early evening news and they showed images of some dead people.
Now I enjoy watching action films and the like, where (obviously) actors pretend to die but I have a real issue with seeing pictures of real live, sorry, dead people. I know death and murder goes on far more than maybe I choose to believe but I find it distasteful and lacking respect. Do we have to see this sort of thing with our dinner? Is it because we are no longer easily shocked that we accept such images?
Maybe I'm the only one that thinks this way..?
21 Nov 07 Muffinhead says: sometmes its the only way to drum a message across but i have a problem with it that is its showing no respect towwards the dead person.Its not like they wll be handed a permission form to sgn to allow ther faces to appear all over national tv.Then again long go are the times of respect and honour

One can of Tuna, flake
One can of Sweetcorn
Mayonnaise, more than you think necessary
A splash or two of Worcestershire Sauce
One to two desert spoons of strong spreadable Cheddar cheese
Mix together and serve on its own, as a filling for a sandwich with wholemeal bread or as a topping to a baked jacket Potato.

Believe me, vomiting and diarrhoea at the same time was not pleasant at all Sunday night. Due to then having a very tender stomach, when I was finally able to get to sleep Monday morning it was only on my already weakened back. Spent the rest of the time unable to stand, sit or lay due to the pain in my lower back. Woe is me!
Dad was up in the early hours of this morning, having picked up the bug more than likely from me. I just hope that thanks to all the drugs she is taking, mum avoids this one. She really could do without it. Should know by Friday I guess.

They want to restart chemo treatment as soon as possible but she is not yet strong enough by a long shot. Despite the results the other week from the Path' Lab, he also believes mum still has the C Diff bug and is unlikely to shift it for a couple more months. According to him you can't shift it just like that, especially if your immune system is so low in the first place.

After around an hour of quietly turning my room upside down, not to mention the attic room and also my car by torch light, I determined I had lost it and settled back to bed. Yet another thing to worry about and add to the list of things keeping me awake.
Needless to say this morning with little effort, I found it.
Isn't it strange how the mind works at times? For no apparent reason something pops into your head and bugs you. It becomes the most important thing yet your rational mind keeps trying to butt in and tell you it's not important, that it can wait. That voice is a little quieter than it should be and somehow the things that play on your mind take on a life of their own...

It appears the "C Dificile" hospital superbug she had a few weeks or so back has returned with a vengance and with it the severe diarrhoea and sickness she had before. Mum has not really been eating for nearly a week and is unable to take on enough fluids. She is very ill.
15 Sept 07 David says: Sorry to hear that. My thoughts are with you.

The good news is that for the first time since being diagnosed in Sept 06, the tumour in her Liver is slightly reduced. The hospital have lined up some meetings with other specialists, do some more tests and build her up over the next month, then restart the chemo treatments.

I think also I may be able to restart swimming lessons with Little Lad in September. They had severe problems with the pool they were using back in December last year. After a couple of false starts, where the pool was OK for a couple of weeks then out of action for several, it seems all is up and running. Can't wait to get back in the water with him. Not so sure about the early starts on a Saturday though.

A boy of 12 has appeared in court today, charged with assulting a man with a cocktail sausage. Apparently the "victim" thought he had been hit with a stone. Can't he tell the difference? One is rather crunchy, the other tastes of pork.
The child's mother said the court action was an "utter joke." but accepted her son should receive some type of reprimand. Manchester Police and the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) are now reviewing the case after the judge questioned their decision to bring it before the courts.
Here's the full story: << http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/6958826.stm >>
I'm just pleased to know that crime levels are now so low that all the police have to worry about is underage food fights. Don't even get me started on how much tax payer money this has all cost.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Of all the Harry Potter films I've seen, this will be the fifth. LOL
Having recently re-read the book prior to seeing the film, I'm convinced the big fight towards the end looked far better at the cinema than it ever did in my mind. Don't know why- it's usually the other way round, with the cinema version being a kind of let-down but not this time.

I guess the best way to sum it would be if you could imagine a Die Hard Greatest Hits compilation cd, that would be fairly close: All the best bits you remember without the bum single that only managed to scrape number 40 in the charts so to speak.
Action more or less from the very first moment through to the end and every set-piece action moment swiftly followed by a quip from one of the stars, most often Willis as you might expect. The man himself seemed to me to be on good form, with the ocassional acknowledgement of the passing of the years since the last outing. The plot was strong enough to hold my attention (as did the explosions), mirroring current themes and concerns.
My only concern being that it makes enough money in the box office to convince the studio to flog the franchaise beyond it's sell by date. Other wise full marks from me.

You spend £200 on a new washing machine and when it goes wrong, you call the repair man out.
You spend £100 more on a child's electric bike and when it goes wrong, you throw it away. Why- where's the sense in that?
End of thought for the day.

The BBC have confirmed the rumours that Kylie Minogue is to join David Tennant in the 2007 Doctor Who Christmas special, "Voyage of the Damned." The plot is said to involve the RMS Titanic and Kylie will have a major (one-off?) role. According to executive producer Russell T Davies,"This will be the most ambitious and best Christmas episode yet." Shooting on this and series 4 is due to begin shortly in Cardiff.
<< http://www.kylie.com/ >>
The full story carried on the BBC News web site may be found at: << http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6262094.stm >>
Elsewhere it has been reported, the Doctor Who series 3 final "Last of the Time Lords" was watched by 9m viewers with a 39% audience share. Let's hear it for heavy advertising and poor weather!
The BBC have also stated that Freema Agyeman who took the role of new companion Martha Jones in series 3 is not leaving the show. In fact she is to film 3 episodes of the next series of Torchwood before rejoining Doctor Who mid-series 4, along side Tennant's Doctor and an as yet to be named new character. Some reports suggest the new character will be played by Tom Ellis who appeared in "Last of the Time Lords" playing Thomas Milligan.
Sadly it looks unlikely John Simm will return to the series, although I guess anything is possible...

Has been a bit of a rubbish weekend.
Mum had to be taken into A&E Friday: her GP was concerned by the test results she had on Wednesday. Apparently the hospital shouldn't have let her go home in the first place.
Mum's blood count was at an all-time low and she had picked up an infection, along with some unpleasant side effects. Also an examination Sunday afternoon has reveiled an enlarged Spleen.
So she spent the weekend mostly wired up to a drip and starring at four boring walls. No doubt more tests, prodding and poking and boredom is in store for her these next few days. At least she is now in the right place to receive the best possible care and now has a bit more colour in her cheeks.
Oh and it's dad's birthday today. I guess it will be cards and pressies down on the ward tonight.

As some of you know, having aquired a taste while visiting Boston a good few years back, I love Sam Adams Boston Beer but being stuck in the UK have problems getting hold of the stuff. I like it so much I even bought shares in the company!
My local Waitrose and Sainsbury supermarkets used to stock it until around Christmas 06 but for whatever reason don't anymore. So my quest began to find anywhere else that stocked Sam. So far no good.
However while visiting Tesco's recently I discovered they now carry Brooklyn Lager- another gem of a beer I have had the good fortune to sample. I cleared the shelves in the Wokingham store last week.
I would invite all beer lovers to give these two wonderful products a try; you never know you might enjoy them.
And if anyone has any suggestions where I might get hold of Sam Adams beer here in the UK, please let me know.
Here's the official web sites:

Gonna sound really sad now.
Having lost access to Sky a while back, I haven't been able to get my fix of season 3 of Battlestar Galactica.
So I've bought the Mini-Series plus seasons 1 and 2 cheaply on DVD with the intention of watching each and every episode in order. I'm halfway through season 1 and had forgotted just how good it is and what compelling drama it is.
Can't wait til season 3 drops through my letter box.
