    Ah, George W Bush could always be relied upon to come up with a pearl of wisdom!
    My favourite is the Nancy/Ronald Reagan one! 🙂

    I have always a view on politics – why bother with it … look at Italy – how many governments haven’t they had through the years about 200 … and nobody cares. Still Italian has a good lifestyle.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
