    So mysterious. Why always does the medical profession shroud information about our bodies in such mystery or false benevolent cheerfulness.

    We await your news with bated breath, Bluebiird.

    Wow, Farnoosh, it's good to hear from you. Graduating from college is a real milestone. I'm sure you will rise to the occasion of carving out a career for yourself. I was always the opposite about work. I did not want to volunteer my services, but I worked for years in an inner city school with kids who are considered underprivileged. I loved it! I hope you find something to do that you love, too.

    Anna Karenina is one of my favorite novels, too.

    There is an error. I am an American, and I am not responsible for the criminal acts of the Israelis on the Palestinians. This is just a continuation of the ethnic cleansing that the Israelis have been doing since the 1940's, and another example of how Israel ignores international law.

    Thanks Qimi. Got back home a few hours ago without hitches. It's been a great trip and fulfilled its purpose.

    I thought you should know. That's how it began.

    Maybe you just want to be on the winning side. No one like's a loser, right?

    Well, okay, but

    don't expect me to come back here.

    1500 civilians in Gaza, as of about a week ago, have been slaughtered, while. . .

    3, civilians, in Israel, have been killed.

    This is what's known as a slaughter, genocide, horror, wrong. Atrocity.

    Or, if you don't like those words, unequal conflict.

    Look at pictures of Israel, - what do you see? Some small damage- look at pics of Palestine, what do you see? Total devastation.

    1500 civilians killed, while more than 6,000 wounded.

    Anyway- in Gaza they don't leave their homes. They feel like they are in prison. We have the prisoner-guard thing going on in a mass scale.

    People who dissent in Israel are clubbed in the streets, if they do so online they're sent death threats and hate-messages. This is what you're backing up Virgil.

    500-to-1 is not right, it's not fair.

    Hate never ends hate - endless war won't stop this - but calling it out is absolutely necessary, this insanity, this bloodshed must stop.

    And how did the State of Israel get started? Villages were slaughtered. Truckloads of dead bodies were hauled around to other villages - just to show them what would happen if they did not move.
    In case you care.

    Sounds lovely, all the wandering down narrow streets and taking it all in. Glad you and your son are bonding and enjoying a new culture.

    Excellent Mick.

    I've been round the Massey Ferguson plant which was in Coventry. Unfortunately they were bought out by Agco - an American firm who shifted the operation. The site has been flattened and a large housing estate now resides there.

    My committee colleague Terry used to work there and talks fondly of factory life - the camaraderie and scams.

    They don't make machines like they used to. And they probably don't make as many great fathers as they used to. Wonderful read Prend. Thanks.

    Wonderful reflection, reminds me of my '66 VW Beetle with a 6 volt battery and always having to park at the top of a hill in winter.

    I'll tell you what Nik. How about I shoot some bullets at your house, through your windows, at your door, when your walking by. I assume you're not going to call the police? It's ok to shoot rockets and not retaliate?

    The problem can only begin to be resolved when all parties involved are willing to compromise. Compromises on the part of Israel have historically led to more conflict. The other side ... compromise doesn't seem part of the radical vocabulary ... so yeah huge attitude changes are needed, on some sides more than others. Until then we have bombs.

    Everybody there is partly responsible.Israelies do what it was done earlier to them. They try to survive. Their situation is not so simple. Around Isreal vast majority of countries (all) is islamic. I know that there are many victims. However, yesterday in Poland was the anniversary of Uprising in Warsaw. Below the link to texrt about it: Then, nobody helped us.
    But coming back to the my main idea: Don`t you think that noobdy blames other islamic countries, their neighbours? Many wealhy people from Kuwejt or Emirates really could help them instead of building towers in the desert. On the other hand, look at the difference between Isrealies and Palestines. Theo only solution is education.

    Nevertheless, the situation in Israel should be changed.
