Civilisation or, as it is here, civilization - perhaps there IS a difference...

A news item this morning covered the death of an infant during its first day in child care upon its mother's return to work. The news caster announced that other than USA, there are only three countries which do not have a compulsory programme (or, as it is here, program) of paid maternity - and/or paternity - leave. The other three were, I believe, Burundi, Guatemala and Papua New Guinea.

RIP Alf Garnett

I had the great pleasure of seeing him do an act in a local night club - was outrageous as usual especially with Viv Anderson in the audience not long after being picked for England -  but afterwards he had long chat with everyone and  was lovely guy.

I don't imagine Till Death us do Part would be allowed today

Have a good weekend

School Reunion
He was a widower and she a widow. They had known each other for a number of years being  school classmates and having attended class reunions in the past without fail. This 60th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles. They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high with the widower throwing admiring glances across the table and the widow smiling coyly back at him. Finally, he picked up courage and blurted out, "Will you marry me?" After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes ... yes I will!"
The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled. Did she say yes? Or did she say no? He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank. He remembered asking the question but for the life of him he could not recall her response. So with fear and trepidation, he picked up the phone and called her.
First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening. As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say yes or did you say no?"
       "Why you silly man, I said Yes. Yes I will! ... And I meant it with all my heart."
       The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.
       Then she continued, "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!"
