A Romantic Weekend for Rosemary and her lover Vest

Unless something crops up, this will be my last post until Monday Dec 3, the past fortnight has been fairly quiet; nothing too disturbing except for the thunderstorm last Thursday stuffing three computers downstairs the property of my sons #1 & #5, fortunately my computer was spared the same fate.
Within the past 48hours I have deleted about 60 comments presumably from World United Bloggers, a miscellaneous save the sodding world bunch of religious freaks, seemingly controlled by a very friendly group of Muslims, who recently requested that I become a moderator for Australian content emerging on their blog site. After a couple of weeks summing up the situation and receiving advice from a learned friend(yes , one of them and no charge too) I decided it wasn't my bag and politely told them so. Thus the barrage of eerie threatening comments, mostly cowardly and anonymous. One of the failings of these people is the fact the majority fail to answer - reply to comments , it seems like the proverbial Irish parliament; everyone talking and no one listening.
We now have a brand new supermarket; five times larger than the previous one, the old S/M has been knocked down to provide more parking space. there seems to be more packing of shelves going on than the emptying of , I fear the emergence of a white elephant, leading to possible closure; given time.
Rosemary my nearest and dearest won three prizes at the club raffle on Sunday plus the cash jackpot of $450 - 00, she has earmarked several ways how to get rid of it, Rosemary is not unlike other females who belong to the ancient order of FATMASP.
Oddly the club representative organizing the raffle, was none other than the Mother of Tim 27 the successor to Julie, the former wife of my son Tim 40, whose two beautiful 11 and 14 year old daughters stayed at our home during the weekend, Tamara and Jacinta are never asked nor do we receive from them info on their domestic issues. However, the mother of Tim 27 informed Rosemary that the romance between her son Tim and Julie our Tim's former wife is over, leaving behind a three year son. finally our Tim 40 has been ordered to pay more blood money to cover Julie's loss of income. Incidentally the names Denise & John are Tim 27s parents, also the names of both Tim's 27 & 40 in laws, confusing isn't it.
While I write a few more Xmas cards, I must ask Rosemary to clean the car check under the bonnet(hood) put air in the tyres (tires) before our trip down to the south coast this Friday to visit Tony our # 2 son (He doesn't like that title) Tony is successful like myself he has retired at 51 on a fully paid up 5 acre's near the sea plus 5 bed two bth/rm home. Tony's nearest and dearest Rebbecca at 39 is far too young to retire, in her absence,Tony amuses himself on his 6 metre boat and pottering within the estate.
I have just been informed that it is I who must fix the ------- car , its so hard these days to find a subservient partner, like the saying.
'When you've gotta horse, You don't pull yer own cart."

See you on Monday, have a fulfilling weekend. VEST.

Briton faces lashes in Sudan over teddy named Mohammed
By Caroline Gammell and Aislinn Simpson

A British primary school teacher in Sudan is facing 40 lashes and up to six months in prison after allowing her pupils to name a teddy bear after the prophet Mohammed.


Ms Gibbons asked students to name the toy
Colleagues of Gillian Gibbons, 54, claim she made an "innocent mistake" by allowing the class of seven year-olds to choose the name. But she has been accused of insulting Islam’s holiest prophet, arrested and imprisoned.

If charged and found guilty of blasphemy she faces punishment under Sharia law.

Her actions have sparked protests in Sudan and have forced the school to close until January for fear of reprisals.

The divorced mother-of-two from Liverpool is being held at a police station in the Sudanese capital city of Khartoum, and there were reports that an angry mob had gathered.

As the Foreign Office tried to resolve the situation, Miss Gibbons was visited by consular staff who described her as well, despite her ordeal.

Miss Gibbons had been working at Unity High School - popular with wealthy Sudanese and expatriates - since August, after leaving her position as deputy headteacher at Dovecot Primary School in Liverpool this summer.

However, trouble flared after she let her class choose a name for the stuffed bear as part of a school project.

She was teaching her Year 2 class about animals and their habitats as part of the school’s British-style national curriculum.

She asked one of the female pupils to bring in a teddy bear and asked the students to name it. "They came up with eight names including Abdullah, Hassan and Mohammed," said the school’s director, Robert Boulos

Twenty of the 23 children opted for Mohammed and the toy was taken home by a different pupil each weekend to record a diary of the bear’s "activities".

Mr Boulos said the diary entries were written in a book which bore a picture of the bear and the words "My Name is Mohammed".

It is seen as an insult to Islam to attempt to make an image of the Prophet Mohammed, but Mr Boulos said nothing was written on the bear itself.

Several Muslim parents complained to the Ministry of Education and on Sunday, Sudanese police arrested her at her home on the school premises.

Mr Boulos insisted Miss Gibbons had not meant to offend anyone but said the school would remain closed until January for fear of reprisals.

"She has done nothing wrong but now we are very concerned that there’s a risk to the school and the students from the men in the street," Mr Boulos said.

The police have confiscated the diary and plan to interview the little girl who owned the bear.

A source close to the school said one teacher was angered by the naming of the toy and complained to the headmistress, who is European. "According to what I was told, she belongs to one of the established conservative families in Khartoum."

But a Muslim teacher at Unity, who also has a child in Miss Gibbons’ class, said she had not found the project offensive: "I know Gillian and she would never have meant it as an insult."

The country’s state-controlled Sudanese Media Centre said Miss Gibbons was arrested "under article 125 of the criminal law", on suspicion of insulting faith and religion.

Unity, founded in 1902, is an independent school for Christian and Muslim children aged four to 18 and is governed by a board representing major Christian denominations in Sudan.

Miss Gibbons, who separated from her husband Peter in December 2006 after more than 20 years, is one of several Western teachers who work at the school.

The couple have two children Jessica, 27, - also a teacher - and John, 25, and used to live in the Aigburth area of Liverpool.

Former neighbour Peter Sorensen, 64, said: "Everyone is shocked to hear that Gillian has been arrested in Sudan. We can only think that it’s all a huge mistake, I’m sure she would never have done anything deliberately to insult the Muslim faith.

"We are very worried about the kind of conditions she is subjected to. Being held in police cell in Khartoum must be an horrendous experience."

Mr Sorensen said Miss Gibbons had planned to be in Africa for two years but was hoping to come home for Christmas.

Headteacher of Dovecot Primary School Gillian Jones said: "We are all thinking of her at this difficult time and are absolutely certain that there is no way that she will have done anything to intentionally insult any religion.

I feel privileged that I am able to critisise the stupid archaic pre medieval laws of islam, Sharia law is simply witchcraft, a complete out dated in its purest form load of old Bollocks, a nonsensicle blabbering of unsubstantiated gobbledygook fit only for the ears of the suppresed and its ignorant completely out of touch brain dead followers.

This woman accused of blasphemy or simply insulting allah should be given an opportunity to speak to allah personally to explain her position, then if allah is not available to honor her request in person, then there is no reason for the cruel mindless followers of allah to seek redress on this woman with a great sense of love and giving, and she should be freed immediately.

We can't blame Allah for the present goings on in this world but the persons responsible for relaying his teachings in a manner suitable and acceptable to modern expectations.

It is a constantly changing world that we live in.
We need forward thinking people.
We need more kind and caring people who specialise in achieving the impossible.
