At last summer has appeared on the horizon.The winter has been long and cold and spring was non-existent. In the last three wekks as temperatures have at last risenthe growth of everything has been phenomenal.Flowers such as bluebells normally out in March/April have virtually leapt out ofthe ground.Blossom on trees and shrubs has rapidly come and goneand trees are now in full leaf. Plants have virtually grown daily in an effort to catch up lost time.Everything is is a bright green , trees and grass with the new growth. It really is a beautiful time of the year.
Today is a royal wedding.I wish the couple a long and happy marriage! That is really my only interest. But we British do this sort of event better than any other country in the world, we are helped by places like Windsor Castle. We have some many castles and stately homes as backdrops it makes the occasion spectacular. Good luck Harry and Meghan.
Postscript. Beggars in Windsor were offered free accommadation to take them off the streets for the occasion. They refused as there were rich pickings to be had on the streets!
Anybody see the photo of La Toya Jackson this week. she has obviously had some work done on her face and now looks the spitting image of brother Michael.
On the day of the USA embassy being opened in Jerusalem 58 people were killed and approx 2000 people injured on the Israeli/ Gaza border. Every one of them was from Gaza. I know Hamas is a semi pseudo terrorist organisation who Israel blame for everything that goes wrong but have they forgotten they were also terrorists when the British occupied Palestine after the 2nd World War. When is the UN including USA going to get some sort of dialogue going between the two countries. Or will it just go on forever?

I’m not against same sex marriages in any way but is it not a bit silly to suggest same sex dancers on Strictly Come Dancing.Apparently a male pair just reached the final in the Italian version.
There has been a campaign running for volunteers inc. children to collect rubbish from beaches and other public places.Why don’t we concentate on training people inc. kids to NOT throw away rubbish in the first place? Another 10 children were killed at a school in Texas this week . So Trumps firearms policy is working well. Going to school is just so dangerous in the US.
