Three women proposed to in less than 24-hours and each of them said "Yes". I suppose it may be a new world record of sorts!
While Thanet is hidden under 300 feet of cloud, it's bright and sunny past Whitstable this afternoon and was enough to get the last proposal in over Bluebell Hill. Yesterday's were both over the Isle of Wight festival, which from above, looked as though the island had been occupied by a large army of tents!
While I was waiting for the results of today's exercise, by SMS message, of the proposal from the ground, from the potential couple to be, I was entertained by the regular comments from ThanetLife, arriving via re-directed email, into my Blackberry. It did rather strike me that a single individual worrying over who was and was not selected to run in last month's council elections was more than a little pointless in the grand scheme of things but everyone is entitled to an opinion, however bizarre that might appear; one of the remaining few benefits of living in a democracy.
It was pointed out in the news this morning that the retiring Tony Blair's ambitions to become a Deacon of the Catholic church - he met with the Pope this week - may not stop there. In fact, there is no certain impediment, we were informed, to Tony running for Pope one day if he can get the votes of the College of Cardinals once the present Holy Father leaves us. However, following a second meeting this week, which appeared to ratify the imposition of a new European constitution that nobody wants, a space will appear for a new "President of Europe", who is likely to be a retiired President or Prime Minister from a European Union member state.
I wonder who that might be? Any guesses?
