FAMOUS FOR FRIDAYS

Sorry , late again. Just seem to have a lot on recently.

The Tower of London has been guarded by Beefeaters (Yeoman Warders) since 1485. One of them looks after the 7 ravens who lives there. There has been a tradition that should the ravens leave the Tower England will fall to a foreign power. My dad was stationed at the Tower during the 2nd World War and he told me they were manacled then so they couldn’t fly away. There are only 37 Beefeaters now and apparently they are considering going on strike re their pension terms. So whose going to look after the ravens? And what happens if they they/

Some local authorities in England are considering giving convicted rapists access to children born as a result of their rape. That is ridiculous! What about the feelings of the woman who was raped?

A long lost Da Vinci drawing was offered to museums at the discounted price of £18 million No museums can afford this price so it will be sold at it’s market price of between £26 -£53 million to a private person.Thats really sad but why cant the private dealer buy it and donate it back to a museum so the public can see ir. Oh and , by the way the last picture, Salador Mundi,  by him went for  £350 million.

A German survey of 130 millionaires found that they think they are something special. they were found to be more extroverted and conceited than the general population. they were more focused on themselves and “getting ahead” than their relationships with others. Hardly surprising !

HUMOUR- During the 1741 general Election angry voters pelted candidates with dead cats and dogs.

Edouard Monet’s cat was eaten during the Siege of Paris in 1870.

Rice Krispies in Germany go “Knisper! Knasper! Knusper!” Must translate as , “Snap, Crackle and Pop .

Sweden makes biofuel from dead rabbits.

The modern politician replies to anything he doesn’t believe in as either “fake news” or doesn’t agree with figures or statistics produced. They don’t have well  constructed and reasoned discussions any more. In fact they don’t actually answer the questions they are asked any more.

A new £50 note is to be issued in the UK soon. It was announced that it would be a scientist such as Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the phone, Frank Whittle , the jet engine pioneer, Jethro Tull, horse drawn seed drill, Patrick Moore, astronomer, Barnes wallis, the inventor of the bouncing bomb. But the favourite is ex Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who was a food scientist, working on ice cream for two years. SOme scientist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OLD FASHIONED WORDS—–

Condiddle- To steal.

Caterwaul- Burst of high pitch screaming.

Fizgig-Someone prone to flirtation.

Pettifogging- Attaching undeserved importance to something.

Trollop- A promiscous woman.

This country now has over 300, 000 homeless people and now have food banks for people who are struggling financially. So how come we now fund overseas aid to the tune of £14 billion.We give £151million to the corrupt leaders of Uganda who distibute to the elite of the country rather than the poor. Other countries receiving aid are- India, £90 million, Pakistan, £402 million, Turkey, £!37million, Myanmar £120 million and Iraq, £82 million. Oh, and China £43million. What we are supposed to get in return i haven’t got a clue.

Now don’t get me wrong i totally believe in helping the poorer countries but it is so important it gets to those who need it most not filtered off by the corrupt and greedy leaders.
