Abolition of noble and clerical privileges in France...

But, being France, it was not quite what it seemed.
You could buy out these privileges, which would then be extinguished.

Good news though with regards to your op. Dont want you going any where yet! Also hope everything settles down with Tim and he realises what a wonderful familly he has. At this end I am really loving the Olympics and cant tear myself away. Makes you feel really pround to be British at the moment and we are third in the tables. Yippeeeeeeee.

LDL: Most Chinese couples in mainland China are firing blanks nowadays in an unsuccessful attempt to reduce the population , Limit 1 child per couple, but you knew that didn't you.

My Niece Jane: Thank you for your message. Tim is on the mend, we hope. We are glad you are enjoying the 'Five Ring Circus'. Aussies here are very tearful over their lesser awards and few of them too.
Could be the Vitamin Pills they are taking, if so Swisse could be a Swizz. Love you too xxx.

HI Vest


I agree with most of what you say. I wanted to correct you on one thing you wrote on a mexican website a few
years back. I grew up with the Posner family in Miami. They were not Jews they were actually Catholic.


Take care


Sam

Sam: Things I dont remenber that come back to bite you,

Vest said...

Hi Sam. Unsure where you are coming from . The .article I wrote on the Mexican? blog , does'nt come to mind, refresh me on this. Any how I do tend not to discriminate between differing callings within the faith industry and respect their beliefs even though I shall remain a doubting Thomas, which is my right too. Any how I hope what was written was not offensive assuming it was me and not some other person. Thanks for calling, you too take care.

i don't blame you in this world we live in i am very skeptical and there is so many bad things happening in the name of religion.

Vest said...

Sam: Unfortunately I cannot recall this . Please send copy of the original comment on the website it was supposedly sent to.
