Last week my back ached from digging in the garden
This week it was sitting at the desk
and I was reminded of this picture.
Today St Peter's is in London. I will not be travelling down. But will watch from a distance. I've listened to couple of speeches. Considering his age and frailty I can just about make out 'vot he svays' and although quite theoretical he is spot on when he says that the things of this world (drugs, alcohol, celebrity, materialism) do not last for ever (in fact just a fleeting moment) but in contrast the love of God does, always has and always will last forever. Well done.
I did struggle when he said he was Gods representative on earth,
I was pleased he didn't mention Henry the Eighth!
I liked the quote that "every economic decision has a moral consequence".
I don't really get the workings of the Holy See.
My big question is why the Pope (this, and all previous in recent centuries) will not eat in public. So no banquets or dinner parties, or hot dogs or even ice creams. I wonder why.
So, instead of going to London and landing a plum seat in Hyde Park, I'm going to go buy a plum tree and park it my gradually evolving garden.
went for a stroll
went for a stroll
Saw some apples,
not far from the house
in fact in the garden
Then another thing
of beauty whilst trying
out some black and white
Then a very colourful
pretty cool as
I was in Nelson country
And then the
reason for the stroll
the local broad and river.
Although only the boat
gives away the river
Why, why, why?
Are tree stumps
to get out.
My muscles ache
my back hurts
but the root is lying lifeless on the lawn
So I guess I win!
Also in the news today....
Norfolk is set to lose 75% of speed camera's.
Does that mean I can go 75% faster ?
In the news today,
4 interesting stories
which are worthy of comment and doubt!
First - William Hague - has he acted inappropriately. I doubt it, all that this story shows is the base nature of the British media - shame on them.
Second - Middle East peace talks - again - let hope some success, but somehow I doubt it.
Third - memoirs of Mr Blair - he's been doing the rounds of interviews to try and sell his book. I thinks he's a good chap and tried his best for the country, but will other people think this, I doubt it - people generally like to have a go.
Fourth - Stephen Hawkin - he thinks that science could explain the creation of the universe and that the big bang was an inevitable consequence of the laws of Physics. Seeing as no one can accurately describe the laws of Physics, including Mr Hawkin, and seeing as what no one can describe how the laws of physics started then I doubt he is right, I still rather believe in the God who created the laws in the first place.
