Re Vera Lynn. That song about Dover was written by two Americans and some sort of morale booster but as we all knew here there are no bluebirds anywhere near Dover-apparently at the time of writing it was seen as being something of happiness indicator-such as the line "Mr Bluebird's on my shoulder" from the "Zip-per-dee-doo-dah" song from Disney's film(live action & animation) Song of the South and Judy Garland sang about "bluebirds fly" in her song Over the Rainbow from 'The Wizard of Oz'. One theory is that the 'bluebirds' were actually the RAF who wore blue uniforms flying over Dover(in their aeroplanes) on their way to get the Germans, which I think is pretty plausible.

Today I managed to get a new tape recorder(BUSH) and discovered that it had a USB socket to record directly on to it from tape-BUT the downside was I noticed that that space had been sacrificed to the tape counter and lack of one of those means I have no way of knowing how to find the song or tune I want, but instead use the CUE part which uses a screeching sound as it plays quickly to the next cued piece. Ah well, can't have everything I suppose.

So Theresa May has set 29th March as the trigger for Article 50 and EU negotiations. I still think she will fail to get any kind of real deal from the 27 member countries; it might well be that we have support from a few but not all including France, Germany and Italy...BUT before that some of them have their own battles for leadership so we shall see but it could be another Cameron moment where he promised to get a good deal for Britain and singularly failed miserably. Would May want to call a snap election? Again not sure but then I am equally not sure that Corbyn would be a good enough leader - he has won 2 massive mandates but does that justify him being a credible candidate for future PM? Again only time will tell.

I went to see Andre Rieu in concert at Wembley a few years ago, longest encore I ever heard, lasted about two hours! They did a tribute to Dame Vera, and she appeared on a huge screen on a recording of an interview, I think she got the biggest ovation of the evening, and the Maestro showed her such huge respect it was dereply touching.

I once saw her interviewed, and with a tear in her eye she spoke about singing 'We'll meet again' to soldiers just off to war, she said 'I knew I had to give it all I had, because so many would not be coming back' There will never be a forces sweetheart that will come close to her!

Default US to ban electronics on flights from a dozen countries

Just heard on CNN and seen on the BBC:

Passengers travelling from 10 airports in eight countries will be barred from carrying most electronic devices on US-bound flights, officials tell US media.

Airlines from certain countries in the Middle East and Africa will require passengers heading to the US to check laptops and tablets in the hold.

The directive is reportedly the result of a security threat and could be announced as soon as Tuesday.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) declined to comment on the issue.

Only when he knew he was losing the war that he'd helped start.

Everybody knows Martin McGuinness started the war in the 1590s.

McGuiness was a leading light in the rearmament of the Provisional IRA in the early seventies, he was the deputy commander of the Derry Brigade, responsible for hundreds of murders, murders of Catholic and Protestant, members of the security forces and indiscriminate bombings which killed and maimed men, women and children. He either agreed with, or directly gave the orders for these actions.

I have always had sympathy for the people of Northern Ireland, I have always felt the Catholic Civil Rights movement had right on their side, but I have never agreed with the killers from both sides, who indiscriminately murder the innocent. McGuiness topped this list, when you have seen the sights I have mentioned previously on this subject, picked up the severed hand of a one year old girl, I went, broke down and cried with the Padre after that one, you cheer the death of people like him and pray he has been replaced by someone without blood on their hands.
