Obamas were a lot worse, Michele Obama touched the Queen's bum. That was awfully disgraceful and people banged on about it for years after over here. Some said she did it on purpose, cause she has a complex about being black — like «a chip on her shoulder» (this is what they call it here) — like «look, I am black and can touch the Queen's bum». I don't know whether that was the real reason or just negligence.

The visit went pretty well I think, although not without controversy

Donald Trump visit: President praises UK-US relationship as 'greatest alliance world has ever known' - live updates.



https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/06/04/dona...

Boris Johnson declined to meet Trump and spoke to him over the phone, he said he was busy with the Tory Leadership campaign. Trump did meet May in the end, but not privately — just for show. And he is meeting Nigel Farage. Farage didn't decline. Also he is meeting Michael Gove (he is another contender for the Tory leadership, but I don't particularly like him). Corbyn was addressing the protesters against Trump. It is quite unbelievable, that Corbyn is allright with meeting Hamas, but he snubs the Royal Dinner with the American President. Then afterwards, when his party put some pressure on him — he requested to meet Trump, but Trump snubbed him back.

-Nigel Farage meets president at Winfield House
-Corbyn snubbed by Trump after requesting meeting
-Boris turns down invitation to meet president, taking phone call instead
-President tells PM that NHS would be 'on the table' during a trade negotiation

We have roses blooming all over the place. You know — Rose is the national flower of England, thistle — Highlands (Scotland), Bluebells — Lowlands (Scotland), Shamrock (clover) — Ireland, Daffodil — Wales.

This rose bush is just beautiful, this is next to the front of our house, as you drive into the estate from the road (our house overlooks one of the commons). I'll insert a pic I took yesterday, it was sunny and lovely, today is raining and wet.

It is! Gorgeous flowers. My granny had a lot of roses in her garden when she was healthy enough. Garden roses remind me of my childhood.

Btw, this cat that lives on the ground floor is called «Арбузик». It's because she is round and has stripes.

Why wouldn't anyone take Arbuzic home? She is so cute and lovely. I managed to take some pics of our Fifi in our backgarden the other day. She is just a couple of months older than a year. A cross between Burmese and a mongrel, but her shape, ears and agility — are from Burmese — she is incredibly agile and an excellent hunter. One day we forgot to buy her wet food — we buy a very good one from Pets at Home, so had to give her dry food for one day and the next morning she brought two dead finches (small birds) to our front door, which she hunted down. I think the psychology behind it with cats is this «You don't feed me what I want cause you think I am useless and not good enough. Well, look here — I am doing my bit, earning my keep, I brought some food home for you». We felt so sorry for the birds, we never forget to buy her wet food anymore. Here she is in our back garden hunting for insects:

A woman who lives next door to me took it after their own cat has died but her husband rebelled against it and she had to give up. But Arbuzic refused to go back to the streets so she lives at the ground floor for 6 or 7 years already (I don't remember exact date). Our concierge is taking care of her.

A charming kitty. I hope somebody else picked him before it was too late.

You know one day I found a little kitty in the bushes. I heard him meowing when I was going home. It looked like someone dropped him there. I stood for a two minutes thinking about what should I do with it. I tried to pick him up, but he ran away. Two years have passed already but I can't forget it. I couldn't notice him in the grass, he was so small. Still thinking is he managed to survive or not. I hope somebody else picked hime

What a shame, why don't you take her?

What do you mean by that? Fifi is our cat.

When Fifi was a tiny kitten, she used to sleep in my daughter's doll's house from Frozen (I will see if I can find a pic).





She is a very gracious cat - very lean, agile, very active. Can be a bit bity and scratchy and wouldn't do what she is told ever. But - very loving as well, she purrs like a tractor (very purrry) and likes to lick me first thing in the morning.

Oh, I see, you are talking about the homeless kitty. It is such a shame. Especially in Russia, where winters are so cold and severe. Here in Britain — well, we don't have homeless pets as such. Because there are tons of charities and organisations who protect them — like RSPCA (Royal Society for Protection against Cruelty to Animals), Blue Cross (these are free vet providers for those who are poor), and a dozen others. Some of them are very powerful and very well funded, I read somewhere that people here donate more to pets' charities than they do to children's charities. Also -unless one intends to be a registered breeder, the first thing one does when getting a kitten is to neuter them (so that they can't have kittens), microchip them and vaccinate them.

Grin (25771),

They have been celebrating D-Day here today (Normandy landings by the WWII allies) — first in Portsmouth, then Normandie — with the Trumps.





It is the 75 year D Day Anniversary. It was a massive operation. Just watching about it on the news.

Well, she seems fine. And during these years she got used to our concierge. It's like everybody in our house has a cat now)

We have lots of homeless cats. They are coming in dozens every evening because there is a Georgian restaurant nearby, they give these cats some food.

It is a right thing to commemorate this day. I also think that some officials from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia should be invited as well.
