He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

I think I would rather have a swift execution than be banged up for life.

Is that how long it takes to stick somebody up against a wall and shoot them in Spain?

'Women are partially responsible for sexual harassment because they have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. The desire to be sexually appealing had backfired resulting in attacks from predatory males'.

Just for Rollo:

A Co Down man who killed a dog & then cooked it has been put behind bars for 2 years for the heinous offence.

Needless to say, he has also been banned for life from owning another animal.

'The children of parents who are not equipped to pass on too much knowledge or wisdom will have, by the age of three, heard perhaps a million fewer words than the children of professional parents'.

RolloTheRed Report 7 Dec 2017 17:21

yeah but the professional parents are most of the time out working all hours and networking. Most couldn't even find home without Uber or SatNav.

Their kids get their shed loads of words from their iPad and nannies - who speak every language under the sun except English. . Guess which group will support ukip going forward.

Dermot, at one of the Melbourne suburbs several years ago an Ozzie hopped the fence to stop his Vietnamese neighbours bashing a dog to tenderise it before cooking. True - because I lived near there and found out about it when I went into work.

One man's meat is another man's poison was never a truer saying.

In general, it appears some can lead a healthy life as a fit, non-obese, moderate-drinking, dog-eating, non-smoker & still eventually fall victim to the curse of death.

On a joyful note, this afternoon I have been invited by a neighbour to watch a few surfing snails doing their stuff in his bath tub.
