    Stella, your lead photo shows such a lovely scene. Here’s a website with letter from Lord AlfredTennyson regarding the Cornwall area: http://kimberlyevemusings.blogspot.com/2015/03/alfred-tennysons-thoughts-on-idylls-of.html

    Another view by a photographer named Maniple about which he says, “I took this picture of Tintagel’s remains in November 2005.” It’s in the public domain, but I think it’s so well done that he deserves to have his name known.

    and then….

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. John McCain says doctors have given him a “very poor prognosis” as he battles brain cancer.

    McCain underwent surgery in July for a brain tumor that was later found to be a form of glioblastoma, the same type of cancer that took the life of his former Senate colleague Edward M. Kennedy in 2009. McCain tells CBS’ “60 Minutes” in an interview that aired Sunday night that he thinks about Kennedy a lot. He says Kennedy continued to work despite the diagnosis and “never gave up because he loved the engagement.”

    McCain says he has “feelings sometimes of fear of what happens,” but counters that with gratitude for having lived “had a great life.”

    He adds: “it’s not that you’re leaving, it’s that you β€” that you stayed.”

    Dear Mike Tomlin, James Harrison, Ben Roethlisberger and another Steeler who feels a need to criticize Bronze Star recipientΒ Alejandro Villanueva for honoring the flag that his brothers came home under, you can all go to hell.

    On Sunday your team had 3 options, stand and support America, sit/kneel and disrespect America or 3 take the coward’s way out and abstain, vote present, hide in the tunnel because you were too afraid to be seen as pro-American or Anti-American. What a vile low cany-ass choice you made.Β 

    β€œI was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team.” Tomlin told reporters.

    Your team does not come before America.

    Why should anyone be forced to act in a way that is against their moral code ? The poor boys millionaire club could not all agree on whether or not to disrespect America so you hid. We Americans understand. Trust me.Β 

    Let the kneelers kneel, the sitters sit, the patriots stand, own your beliefs. Own your side. Everyone with a working knowledge of the contract law knows that the players disrespecting America could have been fined in accordance with their contract.Β 

    Remember Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf? He was fined $30,000 after disrespecting the flag and choosing to sit on his butt during the anthem. Once he was fined he worked out a compromise and stood, he recited Islamic prayers under his breath bit he did not disgrace his team by directing the American flag, the anthem, America herself.Β 

    The administrative branch of the NFL is tax exempt. I hope that exemption is revoked. The entire league is subsidized with billions of tax payers dollars, for what, so you can spit in the faces of the people who support you. No more.Β 

    You have backed the wrong horse. Sometimes not choosing a side is choosing through omission.Β 

    You’ve taken something that unites Americans of every color, creed and religion and managed to divide them through your cowardliness and fear of offending the “wrong ” people. Fine them or fire them this is behavior that is covered in their contractsΒ β€œconduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the National Football League.”

    Honoring 9/11 is detrimental, wearing pink in your hair to honor breast cancer survivors and casualties is detrimental, twerking is detrimental but dishonoring the American flag is not detrimental to the integrity of the NFL. Hypocrites. You lousy lowlife mamby-pamby money grubbing cowardly political correct assholes can all go to hell.Β 

    Your decision to hide in the tunnel is disgusting and cowardly. Your decision to criticizeΒ Alejandro Villanueva a war veteran, a man who fought for your freedom, a man who saved lives, a man who was willing to lay his life down for you, a bronze heart recipient is beyond words.Β 

    Mike Tomlin, James Harrison, Ben Roethlisberger and any Steeler who has the audacity to criticize or questionΒ Alejandro Villanueva standing for the National Anthem, choosing country over his team, you are what is wrong with America. As a team you boys get a ball from one of a field to another and celebrate. As a manΒ Villanueva rescued wounded soldiers while under enemy fire and you cowardly clown hiding in a tunnel because you could’t decide whether or not to stand or sit for the American flag have the misguided intrepidity to criticize Villanueva’s Β dedication to America?Β 

    I hope my fellow Americans pray with me for a holy curse on your team, that you not win a single game for the rest of the season. I hope that you lose your tax exempt status, I hope you rethink your disgusting words and actions.Β 

    May the souls of the faithfully departed brothers and sisters who came home under the American flag haunt your every moment.Β 

    Sincerely,

    Fed up American.

          Remember the album cover for Bat out of Hell? I only ever saw it as a kid in Jr. High, in the junk mail Record Club booklets, and never actually heard it. I always assumed it must be really, really heavy metal stuff, like Megadeth or Slayer or something, based on the album art.

          The art certainly didn’t match the music, when I finally heard it in my late teens.

          Not by a long shot. It’s as if Simply Red made an album called “Kill ’em All”, and then it turned out to be a nice, soft, groovy soul album.

    I cannot wait to see the NFL’s Super Bowl stadium half-empty. They’re going to have to pay the homeless, and feed them beer and food, to fill that stadium.

    And the Neilson ratings like the Limbo dance. Sorry, advertisers, but you backed the wrong horse.

    America wakes up, slowly. Trump just lit the fuse that will wake them up more effectively, because he knew what the reaction would be.

    People, right now, are abandoning the NFL, because there are many, many other options available for entertainment and distraction and hobbies. Same reason I abandoned TV and Hollywood. I knew they all hated me and my kind 15 years ago. Football fans are just now, late to the game (as it were), realizing that all these overgrown children playing a child’s game with a ball for $25M per year hate them, too, and all that they stand for.

    I want to see a half-empty Super Bowl stadium.

      Via OregonMuse on the Morning Rant at AoSHQ this morning:

      Progressives are such mindless kneejerks, PDT should spend the next weekend tweeting condemnations of child molesting, female genital mutilation, and setting little babies on fire. Then sit back and watch progressives fall all over themselves defending child molesting, female genital mutilation, and setting little babies on fire.

      Trump knows this. Whatever he condemns, they will defend. Whatever he defends, they will condemn. He’s like Johnny in The Devil Went Down to Georgia. He knows how to play that fiddle better than they do.

  16. lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
