03/12/2008 ~ Tradition

ng of customs or beliefs from one generation to another. Show us a tradition in your space today.
My Traditition may seem like an odd one, but its been traditional over the past few xmas'/ motherdays / birthdays to buy a Book by Bradley Trevor Greive. he puts funny words to Funny Pictures the 1st book we got was looking for Mr Right. and loads of B&W pics with funny captions we have also had the Blue Book amongst others i can't remember What io also like about him is that he supports the Taronga Zoo in NSW Australia. Odd you think why would i like a Zoo a million miles from home!! Well when i went to Austalia when i was 15. Not much was open on Xmas day so we went to the Zoo!!! Had my best ever xmas there, yes it was odd not being with the old people but at the same time liberating, we got up had a mooch down to Circle Quay got the Ferry across to the Zoo and the cable car up to the Zoo. i was wearing my Man UTD shirt, got ribbed by the people at the booking offoce as i think they had lost the last match (i hate football now but back then i <3 Eric cantona) We had Hot Dogs for Xmas got chased by Peacocks and other giant birds in the cafe!!! we went to see the kangaroos!!! You went to through 2 security gates and into a path way with all the Kangers. they had grass and trees and things Part way round there was a carpark type security barrier in the middle of a grassy area, with no fence on either side Similar to the below image my mum looked round and said thats not very safe they could easily escape. Quite loudly and everyone turned round. i couldn't answer her for laughing!!! it was only when we got round to the otehr side and we went out throught 2 security gates thats she twigged1!! ok sorry i got side tracked!!! the Zoo was fab really good all the animals where well cared for and i saw tazmanian devils they are soooooooooo cute!!!!

English English English!!!! i hated my last pic, seemed like a good idea but didn't work out well. All i seem to be able to find is British things not English, but both these Lots of Teabags are made by firms in England!!!! will that do?

28/11/2008 ~ English

This is an appalling shot. taken from the Brownie Guide Handbook 1989 edition!!! I am English, i live in England so why can i not find anything English?? English is a funny language; that explains why we park our car on the driveway and drive our car on the parkway. ~Author Unknown Every American child should grow up knowing a second language, preferably English. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960

11/11/2008 - Remember


Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares2 we turned our backs And towards our distant rest3 began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots4 Of tired, outstripped5 Five-Nines6 that dropped behind.

Gas!7 Gas! Quick, boys! – An ecstasy of fumbling, Fitting the clumsy helmets8 just in time; But someone still was yelling out and stumbling, And flound'ring like a man in fire or lime9 . . . Dim, through the misty panes10 and thick green light, As under a green sea, I saw him drowning. In all my dreams, before my helpless sight, He plunges at me, guttering,11 choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace Behind the wagon that we flung him in, And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin; If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud12 Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, My friend, you would not tell with such high zest13 To children ardent14 for some desperate glory, The old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est Pro patria mori.15

1 DULCE ET DECORUM EST - the first words of a Latin saying (taken from an ode by Horace). The words were widely understood and often quoted at the start of the First World War. They mean "It is sweet and right." The full saying ends the poem: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori - it is sweet and right to die for your country. In other words, it is a wonderful and great honour to fight and die for your country

2 rockets which were sent up to burn with a brilliant glare to light up men and other targets in the area between the front lines (See illustration, page 118 of Out in the Dark.)

3 a camp away from the front line where exhausted soldiers might rest for a few days, or longer
4 the noise made by the shells rushing through the air
5 outpaced, the soldiers have struggled beyond the reach of these shells which are now falling behind them as they struggle away from the scene of battle
6 Five-Nines - 5.9 calibre explosive shells
7 poison gas. From the symptoms it would appear to be chlorine or phosgene gas. The filling of the lungs with fluid had the same effects as when a person drowned
8 the early name for gas masks
9 a white chalky substance which can burn live tissue
10 the glass in the eyepieces of the gas masks
11 Owen probably meant flickering out like a candle or gurgling like water draining down a gutter, referring to the sounds in the throat of the choking man, or it might be a sound partly like stuttering and partly like gurgling
12 normally the regurgitated grass that cows chew; here a similar looking material was issuing from the soldier's mouth
13 high zest - idealistic enthusiasm, keenly believing in the rightness of the idea
14 keen
15 see note 1

this isn't intended to be a personal attack on anyone but i'm feeling so pent up with anger and irritation i thought if i made a list of things that annoy me i can't say that anyone i speak to on line has ever bugged me so sorry if i hurt any ones feelings : 1; men wearing sunglasses 2; babies crying 3; pet birds churping near a phone when speaking to its owner 4; people who feel that the bottom / top of esculators is the perfect place for a chat 6; people who ask a question, don't like the answer then re-ask the question in a million differnt ways 7; the number 13 8; yobs on the back of buses playing music and f'in this f'in that thinking they are the bees knees. 9; people in q's at busy times who have all day to be in that q. 10; sunburn 11; when a sandwich on bread has the 2 slices in opposite directions 12; dolly / clown necklaces 12a; my irrational fear of the number 13
