Food for thought

News Corp Europe, owned by Australian-American media tycoon Rupert Murdoch (very Rich Australian with American Citizenship) , purchased the Latvian television company "Latvijas Neatkariga Televizija" (LNT) and 70 percent interest in television company TV5.

Now I do not know if this is good news or bad news for television in Latvia, however one can but hope that the Australian soaps so dominant in UK daytime tv, do not arrive in Latvia, the thought of Neighbours with Latvian voice overs is to much to think about.!

Now it is rare for me to have to consider retracting or apologising in regards to previous bogs, however on this occasion I do feel obliged on behalf of J.... (English who is now known to all and sundry by his Latin pseudonym of "Erecticus Straightenus") to let it be know to all village members that he did indeed cough up last night the Ls 20.00 relating to the Zvannieki Grand National Draw, and that he did so in good grace. He has also committed to organising a similar fund raising event in the near future !

Now for the Indian Dinner night this forthcoming Friday 18th May, at this time I have the following names
A.... (Second hand goods)
S....... (Cat Flaps) but only if his wife lets him
J..... (Wooden gates)
C.... (Telecommunication Guru)
Friend of above to be confirmed
P..... (Horse fixer)
Me subject to night shift needs

So as things stand we have four confirmed (Green) and three possibles (Red) - anyone else interested please let me know before Friday.

So as further food for thoughts I leave you with these two little pictorial thoughts on life
