Re: Papal Visit

,,,l A careful reading of what I have written reveals that I have no intention of trying to defend the guilty, but only the innocent. Not so. The "innocent" are the children. I fail to see any relevance in this remark to the discussion in hand. The innocence of the victims is not in question, no on...

Re: Papal Visit

JD, Pope Benedict is easily defended and for all the lashing around to be seen hereI have still to see a single piece of evidence. As for the Church's "intelligence service," do tell!

Re: Papal Visit

Hi Folks, I've been away due to my dad's recent brush with lung cancer - and what a first thread to see when I come back! The Pope is a visiting Head of State; he deserves the same standard of welcome as any other Head of State. I hope that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth will be accorded at least the ...

Re: Three towns Veterinarians - Topic for March

When I was sixteen I did two stints of 'work experience' with G. J. Kennedy. Being allowed into the operating area was like walking into Diagon Alley for a schoolboy! Alsatians with glass in their feet ("volunteers to hold it please, while I insert the needle..."), putting down pensioners' four-legg...
