Then I got smart and flew to Kelowna (half way home) to rent a car and drive the last four hours. Not so smart after all... All the major highways then closed for two days due to avalanches. So I sat for two days (at my mother's place) making her very happy) before driving home. Meanwhile, flights had begun to land... without me.
One day at home and we drove back to Vancouver to put my daughter on plane for a five month trip to South America (Lima first) and then we leave for Hawaii a day later.
Okay, I know with that last sentence you lost all sympathy for me. I understand. And will post some sunset and rainbow photos soon. Please don't hate me - you could channel your winter-blues resentment to Seraphine instead- she got to go to Costa Rica after all.
- Israel has a right to defend itself and Hamas rockets launched into civilian areas is just plain wrong, BUT from a humanitarian and international legal point of view, it can be easily argued that Israel has committed war crimes and atrocities in the past few weeks. More than 800 dead, mostly civilians... shooting at UN workers, preventing the Red Cross from doing its work... and more. Shame.
- President Elect Obama says he'll definitely close the illegal US detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, but it will take longer than he thought. I believe him, but hope people keep reminding him to act so that it doesn't get lost. If the US can stop its policy of torture, illegal detention and extraordinary rendition... it will go a long way to regaining faith from its friends (me for one).
- Kate Winslet (finally the photo makes sense) won two Golden Globes last night. Am I the only one who absolutely loves her work? (If so, please give me a call !)
Is this a conspiracy?
As for Gary, he can wet his abdominal irritations with Witch-Hazel and additionally roast his pretty ass underneath Hawaiian suns. It might turn brown, or red - your choice.
Ghazza - Israel, bad combination. Even Palestine in general and Israel, bad combination.
The choice of course is always determent by the stronger, that is not the law of passion, that is the rule of reality.
Israel holds all the cards, but plays them in vain...
Good tidings to you and your stay at warm beach sand strips.
As for Kate Winslet..you know, I never pay attention to 'stars'?? Mostly, I won't see films if they are a typical star vehicle because you just know the story sucks. The genre and story usually attracts me to go see it..
so what is your 'thing' with Kate Winslet? Anything I should be enlightened about??[g]
Lindsey, wise comments as usual and yes, Guantanamo will be complex but he has to act quickly I believe.
Zee - not sure about the health advice or my itches, but thanks :)
Ingrid, I just think that she's a terrific actress and not a typical star but more down to earth. I liked her in Hideous Kinky, Holy Smoke, Little Children and other films.
i like kate too. she has serious acting skills.
hawaii. mmmm. that sounds like a wonderful holiday.
Thanks for taking us with you in thought and spirit anyway. :-)
