Re: surprize

I don't know, Sam. At least it was someone who was trying, which is more than you can say of some.

It was your chance to say what you'd like to see done in your area. Go for it. :D

Re: Anzac

Very interesting, Jeff. Thank you The section of letter I posted above was written by a young soldier, William, to his father in Birchip, Vic. It was an account of the battle of Sari Bair. He survived the war, came back, married and had a family but died in June 1939 at the relatively young age of 5...

Anzac

Saw some photos of commemorative art from Gloucestershire, England. Very effective, I thought. Probably suitable for ANZAC day too. http://i.imgur.com/e0vHnjp.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Wjn5VYo.jpg I've lately been putting together some of the family history too, and here's a small bit of a letter writt...

Re: The Royal wedding

Sorry danet, I've seen it now.

I read somewhere that Australia was giving them a donation to a favourite charity. Maybe they got the hats plus the charity donation.
It would make sense if most presents were donations to charity. It's not as if they need a new dinner set or vase or anything.

Ralph-nail on the head. The yanks are right. :D I'm a bit disappointed no one has commented on the dress yet but what can I expect, I suppose, on a board of mostly males. I liked her tiara. Stunning. Veil, stunning (bit on the long side though, given her train was fairly short) Dress, elegant, timel...

Re: The Royal wedding

If you enjoyed it, fair enough. All I am saying is I thought he started off well enough but I was waiting for the message and was disappointed as the theme didn't develop. It's not that I don't enjoy preachers with passion. I grew up listening to a few Irish priests so I found the black minister on ...

Re: The Royal wedding

I don't think clear thinking is always one of your skills, Andy. You run on emotional reaction, not logic. I never said there was anything wrong with Harry marrying Meghan. I never said there was anything wrong with the gospel singers, in fact they performed well, although I do suspect part of the r...

Re: The Royal wedding

The preacher's sermon was very poor & lacking in substance, andy.
I don't care whether he was black, white or purple. In fact, I suspect the only reason he was asked to talk at all was because he was black.
To me, that is not up to date at all. In fact it is just another form of racism.

Re: The Royal wedding

I would not have minded the preacher or his style if he had actually had any depth or intellect to his speech, but he didn't. He was supposed (apparently, so I read) to speak for 3 minutes and went on more like 15-20 mins and all he said was love has power over & over. 2 seconds' worth. The speech w...

Re: The Royal wedding

Well, they had beautiful weather for it.
Whoever chose that preacher though should have been shot. The man spent about 20 minutes yelling the same thing over & over. They should have given him 2 minutes, max, if they needed to have him at all. Personally, I don't think they needed to have him at all.
