The boots up on my feet made many dread

To see my body without any head.

Who was allowed inside the Tower that day?

With her life the lady had to pay.

The adults in her life had a feet of clay.

Is there any humble person who can pray?

I would like to write a book instead.

Light a fire and find out who is dead.

God preserve the humble from decay.

Why did Shakespeare write so many plays?

The Lady Jane

Would you wish to be the Lady Jane?

At risk of being murdered if she fails

In truth she had a short and trying reign

Her tears fell down like clouds of steady rain

When Mary Tudor caused a fearsome gale

Would you wish to be the Lady Jane?

Her emotions hurt an agile but strange brain

As the Queen she had been sometime hailed

In truth she had a short and startling reign

She was valued less than turgid drains

There are no photos but her face was pale

0h,would you have liked to meet the Lady Jane

She should not have married Guildford in disdain

Better to await the holy grail

She had an almost non-existent reign

They did not let you from the Tower on bail.

Nor provide a boat in which to sail

They made the Lady Jane into a clown.

How much further could you travel down ?

Alfred relaxes and God steers


King Alfred

Lately I have been loaned by providence a graceful beautiful cat.Early on he was a shrinking, hunched and nervous creature who slept by the back door on the daily newspaper.He ate hungrily and drank water with a drop of milk.

He was reluctant for a couple of weeks to venture further but as the tranquil peaceful time went by he began to sleep on a towel by the hall radiator and eventually on my knee.

The most striking change was in his size.As he ate more and was petted more he relaxed so that when stretched by the fire ,more of his body was in contact with the floor and he looked larger all over.He was loosened up and comfortable.

If he were human I might say he had a good mother.He is affectionate and initially I feared his demands might be excessive.When he came onto my bed I was concerned.But after five minutes of being stroked he went off to his own place again.

Sometimes when he’s been out in the garden he reappears with an air of humorous triumph as if he has worked a miracle to enter through his door.Another time when I was reading in a different room from the usual one he appeared mid morning with a face full of more expression than I can easily put into words.

He was anxious and relieved,puzzled and afraid,happy and a touch angry with me.How can you do this to me? was his query.Suppose you had gone altogether?Oh,the insecurity of being a tame cat.

I wonder why cats do not miss their own species.Or maybe they meet them outsi


de.Often though they fight to defend their territory but fortunately they have no WMD as yet.I like to read and stroke him as I muse over my book,

Microsoft never cold call you





“Avoiding technical support scams

Cybercriminals don’t just send fraudulent email messages. They might call you on the telephone and claim to be from Microsoft. They might also setup websites with persistent pop-ups displaying fake warning messages and a phone number to call and get the “issue” fixed. They might offer to help solve your computer problems or sell you a software license. Once they have access to your computer, they can do the following:

  • Trick you into installing malicious software that could capture sensitive data, such as online banking user names and passwords. They might also then charge you to remove this software.
  • Convince you to visit legitimate websites (like http://www.ammyy.com) to download software that will allow them to take control of your computer remotely and adjust settings to leave your computer vulnerable.
  • Request credit card information so they can bill you for phony services.
  • Direct you to fraudulent websites and ask you to enter credit card and other personal or financial information there.

“Remember, Microsoft will never proactively reach out to you to provide unsolicited PC or technical support. Any communication we have with you must be initiated by you.”

Below is more information on what to look out for with telephone and web pop-up scams and how to report them:

Why did Israel allow settlements on the West Bank?

security passover


Why do the Palestinians and now the US see that as a problem?

Settlements have already made it considerably more difficult to envisage a Palestinian state, not least because the huge apparatus of roads, military infrastructure and protected land that services them – an estimated 40 per cent of the West Bank in all – which helps to cut the occupied territory into separate cantons and often swallows up Palestinian farmland. Second, opponents of settlements argue that they have had a profoundly negative effect on the peace process, put at its most extreme by Amos Elon, the Israeli writer who died this week and in 2002 wrote: “Imagine the effect on the peace process in Northern Ireland if the British government continued moving thousands of Protestants from Scotland into Ulster and settling them, at government expense, on land confiscated from Irish Catholics…”

Inevitably that effect is magnified the more they are allowed to grow. Which is why Palestinian President Abbas, who saw President Obama yesterday, has been arguing he won’t negotiate with Israel until there is a freeze.

Democracy can fall.

When first I came to London town
They said I did not fit
My accent was too foreign
And I had no English wit.

My ancestors were Viking folk
Celts and Saxons too
And possibly I’m Roman
And possibly you are too.

Why the wish to classify
To control and to divide?
A lot of insecurity
A handful of false pride.

If England is divided
We need an enemy
.Who shall be the enemy?
Is it either you or me?

Democracy can break and bend
Democracy can fall.
Perhaps we were all misled
By the Berlin wall.

Hidden in defences now
We cannot see too well.
We see the shadows flickering
The cave’s a prison cell.

Blinded by anxiety
By insecurity
Let’s take off our eye masks now
To see what we should see.
