They're in The News again.....
Hamas members (above) doing what they do best; indiscriminately firing thousands of rockets at their next-door-neighbours.
Israel's recent retaliation against these terrorists has brought out the usual dungaree-wearing do-gooders, who, even after all the atrocities of the past decades, continue to support Arab terrorist groups whilst venting their anti Semitic hatred.
I just wish that all the state sponsors of Hamas (Iran, Syria, and others) would stop this crazy supply of weaponry, and redirect their benefaction to the welfare of the actual Palestinian people themselves who are being led into a disaster by a single-minded bunch of warmongering zealots.
The Israelis are a hard working and peace loving people who just want to be left alone to get on with their lives. Their children are well educated, their streets are clean, and their fields are filled with healthy crops. Compare this to the Arabs of Gaza, who are forced to live under the thumb of terror, and receive the only response possible from those that they constantly attack.
Wake up Hamas..... it's time to re-think your policy. Spend your money on bread NOT bombs; and stop moaning when those you attack on a daily basis, occasionally fight back.
As you may have guessed, I am no friend of ANY terrorist group, nor am I an enemy of any nation; full stop.
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!
