Princess Anne sparks ‘let them eat horse’ headlines over remarks to charity | World news | theguardian.com.

this speech of hers advocating we eat horse meat, sounds sensible to me, but she is being criticised for it. generally my impression of the princess is that she is a really sensible person with down to earth views who dont make many public statements and anything she says is worth considering.

one thing… is horsemeat nice to eat? or is it the truth that any meat is nice to eat if u know how to cook it.

it can be universally acknowledge to be a self apparent truth that anything can be made nice to eat if u know how.

just some observations

I have a happy life, and so there isn’t anything to rant about. And that means not much to write about. Haha.

The paradox of life. When u are happy with your life, there is not a lot of things to say about it. We all know that it is boring to hear another person say how happy they are and how their life is so wonderful.

Whilst we all seem to get pleasure to read of others ranting about their lives, or about something that happened to them which upset them. Well, perhaps not so much with pleasure, but certainly u get a lot of people ‘liking’ something when it is something that is upsetting the writer.

When I write about things that happen to me, it is with bemusement, or joy, ( when I find something that someone had thrown away which I like.) Or when people’s behaviour puzzles me.

I have been reading this book by will storr, ‘the heretics’ and it is such a good read and gives me further insight into people, or confirms my own views, that I find it a great read, and don’t want it to end.

My friend from Bournemouth has come and gone. It is for 3nights this time. (his national express fare is £20 return this time and even then it was for 3.30am start, and 11.30pm return.)

He came to attend the heritage exhibition in Olympia. The one where someone presented a paper about how they found from the dna y chromosome that England and wales have a million people descended from Romans.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/9888402/One-million-Brits-descended-from-Romans.html

They concluded this from discovering linkages in the dna to Italians. And so they jump to the conclusion it must be the romans. Someone did mention that the roman army was not only made up of Italians. But I guess like will storr would put it, we concoct stories that pander to our own prejudices. Haha.

My friend is very keen on discovering his ancestors. And had been coming back from the exhibition every day with loads of brochures which he gives to me for some reason. Haha. I have told him I have no interest in it. But by now, we should all realise that people don’t listen. Haha.

It just means more rubbish to throw away in the recycling bins.

And he had been coming back with sweets too. They give them out and he had been taking them. So much so that at the end of the exhibition, one stall holder gave him a whole bag of these sweets . He ask me if I want them. I said no and I suggest he brings it back to give to his friends. He said he will give it to the salvation army in Bournemouth.

Well, it must be nice to get so caught up in a hobby… researching your ancestors must be rather fun for those who want to know about their ancestors.

It bores me rigid.

But to each his poison, I say.

I read that 1 in 3 don’t save any money at all.

I think u might have to take that with a pinch of salt. This is because u are penalised if u are on benefits if you have savings. So many people save but not in a bank account, so that no one knows and they wont tell anyone about their savings either. Even if you are not on benefit, it pays not to have any savings. This is because if u have to go into a old folks home, u will be penalised for having savings.

And horsemeat found in ikea meatballs

This technology of identifying dna is uncovering a huge horsemeat racket that may well have been going on for years. In the past no one can tell where the meat comes from and so it was the perfect con.

Maybe now we can legitimise horsemeat and arrange for horses to be included as another meat source. Maybe we can even have horse farms…

I have discovered a tv channel called movie mix, that shows movies that I have not seen before.
Tonight at 9pm I found that they are showing a movie called Django. I clicked on it thinking , what! is it related to this oscar nominated film Django Unchained?
Well it looks like it is the first one. So tarantino’s Django Unchained is a sequel, or a prequel, or something. Haha.

The movie mix channel is not listed in my tv guide, nor in the online tv guide. Strange isn’t it? So I cannot go there to find out who made the first Django.

added. discovered that i can add movie mix to the list. so here is the link to that movie

The trouble is , it is on at 9pm, and that slot is always taken up by good stuff. Like tonight my favourite bbc2 death in paradise is showing. So I shall see Django after it is over then, at 10pm. added. correction, the death in paradise is tomorrow. 

Movie mix is channel 32 in the freeview.

added.11.30pm. its a ridiculous movie, dubbed badly in english. haha and quite laughably silly. not sure what the original language it was in. i did not see it to the end. instead i switched to bbc4, about chivalry and the 100 yrs war . that was interesting.

i have noticed that films are never as good as i think they will be and i lose interest very quickly. books will always remain my favourite entertainment.
