The Death Penalty.
I am well aware that amongst my occasional readers there are some who are 100% against the death penalty. Normally speaking I am too, but in certain cases I feel obliged to make an exception
There are certain people whose acts are so evil that they are sentenced to their WHOLE LIFE in prison; they will NEVER be released.
These people can be counted on one hand (or maybe two), and I cannot see any reason whatsoever why judges shouldn't be offered the option of sentencing them to 'a painless lethal injection'.
It upsets me to think of all the people who will be involved with looking after this young woman (above), as she starts her WHOLE LIFE sentence. What on earth is the purpose of keeping her alive?
There are certain crimes, so unimaginable and unforgivable, for which the perpetrator should understand that they are obliged to surrender his (or her) right to life. Personally I would include little Miss Star Face; she's done enough damage in her short life as it is!
N.B. I can't even bring myself to mention this nasty girl's name!
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
