Funny picture.

Goodmorning everybody!

We had terrible news on tv yesterday! There was a plain accident in Tripoli, Libia, it crashed just before the landing and there are about 90 persons dead, among them about 61 Dutchmen. So all passengers and crew are dead, only one child survived the crash, till now.
They have no idea what caused the accident, may be it will still take a few days before it will be reveiled, if it will be truly reveiled.
Of course our sympathy goes out to all family and friends of the deceased.

In a few weeks, on the 9th of June, we have elections for a new gouvernment, so you can imagine all the parties are running election campaignes. As we have about 12 different parties to choose from for the House of Representatives it isn't always easy for us to choose one. Normally we always have a gouvernment based on a coalition, but the memebers can be of importance. But they stopped their campaigns now for a day or two, because of this aweful accident.

Well, you can imagine that in all the newsprogrammes they are talking about the crash, sometimes just telling over and over the same thing, because new facts just will come out very slowly, especially because it happened in Libia. And although it is a shock to everybody and a sad thing that happened,I wished they only came with a news item when there really is new news! What good is doing all the speculating what might have happened?

Okay, that was about the most important thing that happened yesterday. I really don;t have much more to tell you, just did some errands, that's all. But I have a funny picture to share with you. I made it when we were visiting several faires. And look what people do here, when there isn't a place to park your bike!

And now on to the freebie. It;'s a kit, named "A Noble Friend".
You all  have a great day.!

Good morning. You're a gal after my own heart!! It's one thing to watch or listen to the news, but they keep repeating the same thing over and over. Then they have to sit for days at a time wondering what would have happened if things had happened differently. Who cares? They can't really change the outcome by discussing it relentlessly. I feel really bad for all the lives lost in the accident, and I feel bad for all the families involved. But having to listen about it for days on end can't be good for them either.

LOL. You got me started!!! Your new kit is lovely, and I am inspired by your creativity.

Have a grand day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

Good morning Kyra:)
Thanks so much for stopping by again.:) Love your visits!!
I try to get Jim to take it easy ..especially since his back is already hurting from all the work he has been doing lately..around the house AND on his job.He is just hard headed and when he wants to do something..he does it.LOL It's his back ..so hopefully he knows when to quit.Right?:)
I agree with you about the news.I guess they have to have something to tell us while they are waiting for the new news though.They just change from one reporter to another on the same subject..but if we want new news..we have to listen to the channels that report it.KWIM? I usually just let it run while doing house work and stop when the new news comes on..so I can hear and see it.:) Or....only watch the news a couple of times a day..so that the new news is what comes on first.:)Either way..the new news becomes old news after a day or two...and the cycle starts over again.LOL
Soo sorry your country men and women ( and children) were involved in that horrific crash. So close to making it too.How sad.:(


Hugs,
Valinda
