Comment on The Write About Love Project by Jenny

Elizabeth,you write masterfully. I'd love to being a part of your blog. I feel rather shy about opening my heart and soul in words. Any suggestions? Your Aunt Wylly would say "write what you feel, just write" and for a daily reminder "use your imagination" "find another way to get it done". I must say using my imagination hasn't always been on my side.

LOVE Poldark. It has made me even more determined to get to Cornwall to explore.

Comment on Remembering Major Bradley Gene Cuthbert by M. Williamson

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:11:36 +0000

I proudly wore my bracelet with the name Capt. Bradley Cuthbert on it for years.(image) it made me cry most days to look at it knowing that someone's loved one was missing. I always prayed for him and wore it long after the POWs were released. The name is etched in my mind for life. Can never say thank you enough for those who serve our country .

Comment on Then & Now – Two Grandfathers With 82 Years Between Them by Kim

Just happened upon the cycling picture after searching for photographs of historic Polperro and it is lovely. We have just purchased the cottage left of the photograph, not captured unfortunately, the person taking the photograph was probably standing right outside it. Would have loved to see it at that time.

I'm an American who's fallen in love with an Englishman as well. I've begun researching my best options to move to Surrey in the next two years (because I've heard it can take at least that long to get your affairs in order). I'd love to read very detailed tips and stories in that area! I'm absolutely frightened with all the horror stories I've been reading.

Comment on Mt Eden April Fool’s Prank – Truth Or Fiction by Tony Milne

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 01:15:38 +0000

As a lover of a good and extraordinary prank - I'd heard that story as well but could never find any facts to back it up, I did come across a similar story (which I now believe is the basis for our Auckland Uni prank story) of someone in Alaska doing this as an April Fool's Day prank. I would still love to see any evidence of it having been done in Auckland...

Isn't it interesting how one piece of cloth can change people's perception of each other. I subscribe to a rideshare driver's support group on Facebook and a recent post had a photo of a female driver with a bandana over her nose and mouth. Immediately others called her a "thug", but it's purpose was simply to guard her from breathing in dust.

How are you doing, Elizabeth?

Comment on Altarnun – Pausing To See More Than A Road Sign by Christa Sola Bedwin

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 19:36:34 +0000

Thank you so much for this post!! I went through Altarnun on the bus today and was too shy to ask if I could get out to take a photo of the wonderful bridge (I should have asked, I think they'd have said "sure!"). I googled for a photo and found so much more in your blog. Thank you! Especially for the carvings on the sides of the pews and the wonderful notes about the buildings and all. What a great blogger you are.

I really appreciate your sensitivity here, your thoughtfulness about that momentary experience. We will need souls like you in the days ahead.

Hate seems to be still spreading from her camp. Why hasn't she appeared on social media and tell her supporters to stop this marching and destroying other peoples property. She asked Trump if he would accept the outcome of the vote on TV and his reply was not sure and she was all over him for his comment and so was the media. Well it seems these supporter of Clinton can't accept the vote as well, yet she isn't coming out and condemning these fine people. You complain about people's fear of those who wear scarfs. There wasn't any fear before 9-11-01, or Boston.

I'm with you on this one Elizabeth. On election night, as I lay alone in my bed watching things turn Trump's way, I had the blanket pulled up over my chin the way a child does when it thinks the boogeyman is in their room. Because as far as I was concerned, the boogeyman WAS in my room. Trump did NOTHING to discourage the attention and adoration of white supremacisists and bigots and just general "haters" during his campaign, and now we all have to pay the price for it. And what I can't understand even more, is the so-called non-bigoted, intelligent people who voted for him, how could you vote for a man so full of himself and so full of hate and disrespect for so many others, speaking vitriole at every rally, stirring up the haters and making them think they found the leader who would speak for them. We always knew these people existed in America, but they were "under a rock", knowing their views would cause trouble. Not any more. And that's why we're afraid.

Thanks John and Elizabeth for bringing a sensitive subject to the awareness of more people. I pray that all that read this blog have the generosity of heart to be more tolerant and accepting of all diversity.

Eloquently expressed Armella. It is all too easy to open the floodgates holding back bigotry and bullying. Not so easy to close them again.

It has been 3 days since the election results have stunned me and half of the US population. It has been 4 days since I read your blog and I am very sorry for your experience. I was born in St. Louis of immigrant parents(invited by the US government to be practicing physicians). I have lived in my ancestral country for 8 years and returned to the US in 1970. Even though I am a US citizen, I have been told to "go back to where I have come from"(as recently as 2 years ago), denied service in restaurants and other places, mowed down by shopping carts, questioned by healthcare professionals because they couldn't believe I am the parent of my Euroasian sons all because of the color of my skin and the shape of my eyes. I have risen above all this, to do well in my chosen career with harder work, more determination and drive. After awhile, I have forgotten that I am different until some ignorant racist person brings back the reality that I am not of his/her race. My 12-14 year old children were taunted on the soccer field, when their opponents couldn't take the ball away from them in soccer games. Some coaches told me I didn't belong in their league. I coached a team that was a cacophony of different ethnicities and religions. We practiced a lot and worked hard and yet homogeneous teams and coaches tried barring us from playing, questioning my teams ages, and the right to be in this country leading to questioning their right to register for playing in the league. The campaign and election results have legitimized bullying rhetoric that strikes fear and shakes me to my core. The result causes me worry, that intolerance for my Muslim friends, my gay friends, married or not, can continue to have the same rights as married couples, my nieces and nephews out of college, but not yet 26 will have healthcare coverage/be dropped for preexisting conditions, or have the right to decide their own reproductive capacities, and if there will be a total disregard for the preservation of the air, water, and land quality that is in constant threat from climate change and fracking. I don't have any other country to call home, but I sincerely believe the majority of this country hold values that reign supreme above our elected officials. We need to hold on to these beliefs and hold these leaders accountable if they forget. They are instruments of government that can be impeached and replaced. I will keep an open heart and mind and give Mr. Trump an opportunity to heal and improve our lot, but if he steps out of line, I will use all the fire I have within, to join an insurrection to get him and the congress out quickly!

Let me say this, Wendy ... whatever is going on with Wordpress or your particular server, your inability to post a comment has nothing to do with me. I have approved each of the comments I have received from you even though I have not had an opportunity to respond as I would have liked. I have been away from sustained internet since the election only able to snatch brief moments of access on free WiFi which is not near long enough for all I have to say. Additionally, I am totally heartbroken and pissed off over the election of someone I see as a despicable human being. It may take a couple more days before I can compose myself enough to say more and before I have uninterrupted access to the internet.
