Married couple take day trip to France… but FORGET mother-in-law and leave her in Dover car park

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 4:33 PM on 13th April 2010

When a married couple offered to take the mother-in-law on a trip to France, it might not have been everyone’s idea of a fun day out.

But whether it was an accident or not, the husband and wife discovered when they were halfway across the Channel that they had left their elderly relative behind.

The woman, who is in her 70s, was still sitting in their car in a multi-storey at Dover port.

The couple, from Bootle, Merseyside, were apparently distraught and, on realising their slip-up, made an urgent call to Port of Dover Police to plead for help.

The bizarre turn of events were reminiscent of the film Home Alone - in which a couple forget to take their young son away with them on holiday.

Police eventually found the abandoned woman sitting in their parked car.

She was taken for a cup of tea while she waited for her family to return several hours later.

Inspector Neil Care, of Port of Dover Police, said: ‘I cannot recall anything like this happening before during my time and I’ve been here for 20 years.’

He continued: ‘On March 22 at about 8.55am we received a call from the couple from on board the ferry.

‘The elderly woman, who was one of their mothers, was found safe and well sitting in their car.

‘We took her for a cup of tea to make sure she was OK but she was absolutely fine.

‘The couple returned at the first possible opportunity, on the next ferry, but it was still a three hours and 40 minutes round trip.’

He said he did not know where the couple were heading to in France but said they had boarded the ferry as foot passengers and were on a day trip.

Inspector Care said the family, who are in their 40s, did not want to be named.

Sick Day

Crap, I’ve still got the congestion nonsense going on. Felt like a wrung out dishcloth this morning. Underside of my nose is getting raw from the constant blowing. Bleh. And I’m in such a dark mood too.

Yeah, and I was Teh Suck at bowling last night. We continued our race to the bottom, winning only 1 game out of 3 for the ... 9th week in a row? Something God awful like that. Maybe I can blame my cold, but I couldn’t muster jack shit. Right into the pocket time after time after time after time, but leaving the 7 or the 10 or sometimes the 9. And then I’d miss the spare by a quarter millimeter or less, sometimes actually hitting the pin but only enough to make it wobble, spin, or slide aside. Time after time after time. Shit. I barely broke 400 for the night. 413 actually. Teh. Suck.

I was going to blow off my chiropractic appointment today, but when I called he told me he can do accupressure for sinus relief. So I tried some of that. It hurts. Did it do any good? I can’t tell yet. But he recommended that I continue with the steam treatment ... put a towel over your head and a big pot of boiling water and inhale the vapors until you’re soaked through, and with any luck breathing all that steam will open your nose. That’s the fallback treatment every allergic person knows about. It sorta works. And use eucalyptus cream. Vapo-rub! Ho boy! It’s like I’m 5 years old again. Now all I need is my ragged old teddy bear, a thick quilt, a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup, and some seriously violent cartoons to watch.

No, sorry, can’t get those anymore. Instead, I’ll just make something to eat and crawl into bed with some bit of fluff to read. The fluff reading was easy; I picked up a copy of Clive Cussler’s latest, Corsair, a book right up my alley. It starts with a historic flashback to the early US Navy confronting the Bey of Tripoli, with Steven Decatur burning the captured Philadelphia and the first action of the US Marines and the USS Constitution. Fighting the jihadis in their own sandbox ...

… that it is founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it is written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it is their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and the every Musselman who should be slain in Battle are sure to go to Paradise.

- Thomas Jefferson’s testimony to the Continental Congress explaining the justification given to him by the Barbary ambassador to England, Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, concerning their preying on Christian ships, 1786

Some things never change, do they?

We ought not to fight them at all unless we determine to fight them forever

- John Adams on the Barbary pirates, 1787

Nope, they don’t change a bit.

Cussler then shifts back to the present day, where his characters are manning a Q-ship off the coast of Somalia, trolling for the modern descendants of that same mindset. I’m sure merry hell will ensue, with plenty of things blowing up and acts of daring-do. Derring-do? WTH is a derring anyway? Probably a bit light on the cutlasses and broadsides, but you never know with Cussler. So it’s an absolutely perfect novel for me right now.

As for the something to eat ... I sometimes push things to the extreme when I’m under the weather. Not sure why, but maybe I just need really strongly flavored foods to cut through the bleh. So I hit the store, and got a nice big pork shoulder and a bunch of fruit and spices. I’m making up a pernil, so that chunk o’ pork is stabbed full of holes and soaking in a big jug of super mojo criollo, a marinade made from bitter oranges, orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, vinegar, garlic, cumin, pepper flakes, onions, hot sauce, oregano, tumeric, sofrito, adobo, and recaito. It’s been in there since last night, so by tomorrow noon it will be ready to slow cook for about 8 hours. The marinade does such a great job of tenderizing that it might fall apart before it gets in the oven. But when it’s cooked - tasty tasty yum yum! Pulled pork sandwiches, super tender meat, crispy roasted pork skin. And if I make up a batch of dough, I can churn out a few dozen empenadas as well. Plus the whole condo will reek of roasting pork all day long. That’s even better than bacon. Even. Better. Than. Bacon!!

Other people turn to saltines and light ginger ale when they get sick, with maybe some watery chicken soup. Not me!



I’ll get back to bashing on Obama in another couple of days. I’m sure he’ll continue doing stupid things against the best interests of the nation, so there won’t be any lack of topics to castigate him about.

Latest rumor I’ve heard is that the Russians changed the ILS beam at their airport when that airplane full of the Polish government was coming in, so that it followed the glide path straight into the ground. Of course the air crew was refusing a waive off: their equipment showed them to have a perfect landing approach. That will never be provable, especially since Putin has the black boxes. If they ever get turned over to the West, they’ll show exactly what he wants them to show. No one will ever be able to show even a hint of evidence that this tragedy was anything more than a freak accident ... yeah right. Another freak accident, just like the former spy who was accidentally poisoned with that rare and highly radioactive substance a couple years ago. Don’t you ever believe it was an accident. The bear will always bite when he knows he can’t be bitten back, and Russia is really touchy about the Katyn massacre, even though they admitted to it after living a lie for 50 years. Worse than the Turks are about the Armenian genocide.

And now that Poland won’t be getting that nice missile shield ... thanks for nothing, Chairman Zero! ... they won’t say a word. But everyone will know, and remember. For someday.

Council to ban the word ‘obesity’ - so fat children don’t get offended

I have spent unnumbered hours today on the phone and on line making arrangements for flights etc.  Some of my problems are I have to confess, of my own damn making. I knew a month ago that I needed to make plans for this and then instead of just doing it and relaxing, oh no. I had to do things the hard way by dragging my heels and now it’s down to the wire and another week to go.
I was so busy today I never got to read the two papers we get every morning. And tomorrow we have an appointment with our lawyer.  Then I have to finalize the trip and tickets. Next time I will do it differently. I’ll be booked a month ahead of time. Maybe.

At this exact moment I have a ripping headache, sore chest and a damn scratchy throat.  A bug? Nope.  Just a damn fool inconsiderate neighbor two door away who decided to have a bonfire in high winds. The smoke came through our house like there were no windows or doors. That was hours ago and it still smells in here.  The uncaring jerk was burning cuttings that were mostly wet.  Huge clouds of gray smoke and ash falling like snowflakes everywhere.  And that isn’t the first time they’ve done that.  Bonfires are legal here but I have to wonder about a place that’s so worried about air quality allowing that activity.
Ah, rural living.  COUGH-COUGH!

I took a quick break from looking at hotels in our area back home and went to the Mail to see what I’d missed in the hard copy. Came across this.
It figures.  The pc touchy-feely crowd has found another word that may offend some folks and so ....

Council to ban the word ‘obesity’ - so fat children don’t get offended

By Jaya Narain
12th April 2010

The word ‘obese’ could be banned in case it offends fat children (file photo)

In an age of widespread political correctness almost any term can be deemed to offend someone at some time.

But one council has been condemned after it announced it would consider banning the word ‘obese’ because it could offend fat children.

Town hall bosses want to want to replace it with the phrase ‘unhealthy weight’ so children are not stigmatised.

The move has caused fury among parents and anti-obesity campaigners who have branded the scheme ‘ preposterous and laughable.’

Last Second Tax Tips

The Obama Low To Middle Class Tax Credit Can Save You $400 - $800

Don’t Forget Schedule M




New for 2009, Schedule M is a tax credit for the low and middle class. If you have an adjusted gross income between $6,451 and $75,000, it will give you a $400 tax credit. If you earn between $75,000.01 and $95,000 it will give you a pro-rated credit.

There is no “marriage penalty” on Schedule M; taxpayers married filing jointly can double these amounts: if your combined adjusted gross is between $12,903 and $150,000 you get an $800 credit, and if together you earn more than $150,000 and up to $300,000 you get a pro-rated credit.

The nice thing is that Schedule M gives you a direct credit. Cash money baby, as if you had paid this much more taxes the whole time. This means it can increase your refund if you are eligible for one.

An income of $6451 is what you would earn working part-time at minimum wage for 17.5 hours a week.




Hmmm ... thinking. Ignoring all the various credits, etc., a childless single person with a full-time minimum wage ($7.15/hr) job earns $14,872 per year. Given the standard deduction of $5700 and standard exemption of $3500, her taxable income is only $5672, and the tax table amount on that is $568. Even with the $400 Schedule M credit, they still have a net tax liability of $168. So they are contributing to the system, albeit minimally.

It takes a bottom line taxable income amount of under $4000 to get off with less than $400 in tax liability, which would be covered by the Schedule M credit. That means ... $4000 + $3650 + $5700 = $13, 350 adjusted gross income. Which is 36 hours per week at minimum wage, or 26 hours per week at $10/hour. Which is a basic part-time job.

This kind of musing makes me wonder just who we’re talking about when we hear that 47% of the population isn’t paying any federal taxes at all.

under pressure

Crap, I’m sick. I’ve either got some kind of springtime sinus infection brewing, or I’m having a bad reaction to the tons and tons of pollen all the trees around here are spewing. Seriously, we’ve got snow drifts of the stuff outside. My sinuses are so blocked up my eyes feel like they’re going to pop out of my head, and the pressure is making my teeth hurt. I’ve done the steam thing, I’ve done the saline spray, I even gave the neti pot several tries. All help, but for about 2 minutes, then it’s right back to huge congestion. Time to try some OTC medicine, something better than the somewhat out of date dollar store antihistamines I found in the closet.

Bleh.

Otherwise I feel just fine, although this sinus mess is making it hard to get a decent night’s sleep.

so instead of cleansing the world of pirates once and for all … ships will turn off the lights

Just came across this bit of tom foolery.  It fits any number of categories that defy logic and spell Barking Moonbat! Take a look.

Cruise ship passengers told: Keep your lights off to avoid attracting pirates

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 1:49 PM on 10th April 2010

Passengers on two of the world’s largest cruise ships have been told to keep their cabin lights switched off to protect against possible pirate attacks.

It comes in the wake of several high profile cases in recent months involving Somali pirates kidnapping Westerners, according to The Telegraph.

Passengers on P&O’s Aurora and Arcadia ships were told to keep their lights off and not venture out onto the promenade deck between the hours of 6.30pm and 7am while sailing through the Gulf of Aden. Despite the blackout, they were permitted to leave their cabins.

P&O’s cruise ships, which can cost up to £7,000 per passenger, sail from Southampton through the waters off the Somali coast - a hotspot for pirates.

Last year, Paul and Rachel Chandler were kidnapped by Somali pirates who demanded £1.3million for their release.

The Chandlers are highest-profile of more than 130 sailors held captive on the Somali coast.

So perilous are the waters off the Somali coast, the area now has its own patrol of warships provided by countries of the European Union.

A spokesman for P&O told The Telegraph: “Cruise ship security is the industry’s highest priority.”

Methinks their highest priority is trying not to be sued by anyone.  If security means anything, it should mean being armed and committed to the use of deadly force.  I think at some point it will take a catastrophic event, some outrage by the pirates that sicken the world, before any real and deadly serious action takes place.

CRUISE SHIP, LIGHTS OUT.

WE’RE OFF TO THE RACES WITH A FEW WKEND LADIES ….

(ok, before any Brits out there flame me, the title was my very Brit wife’s idea. She said it would be funny. If it is, then I take credit for being smart enuff to listen. If it isn’t, then it’s all her fault and she made me do it.)

Oh ye gods of fashion, you who favour the discreet charm of the little black dress, avert your gaze now.

Let the rest of us sit back and enjoy the most tattisplendiferous highlight of the annual sporting calendar; the style extravaganza that is Ladies Day at Aintree.

Just look at these fillies. Aren’t they fabulous? Never let it be said that the women of Liverpool do not add greatly to the gaiety of the nation.

WEEKEND WOMEN

French born actress who was known mostly due to who she was married to at the time.  Errol Flynn.  They had one son, Sean, who sadly went missing in Cambodia during the Viet Nam era. He was a photographer and by all accounts was making a name in that profession.  His mother spent a fortune after the war trying to find his remains for burial at home in the USA.  It was only about a week ago that some remains of several,who are believed to have been murdered by the Khmer Rouge, were found by searchers.  Some evidence uncovered may be Sean Flynn’s remains.  His mom passed away in 1994, age 90. Her career spanned 1922 to 1937.

Yawn ……. the muzzies are “outraged” again.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The Army was accused of gross insensitivity

Oh surely to goodness not. The army isn’t all warm and fuzzy, touchy, feely?  Who’d a guessed?

The muzzies sure do find all sorts of thing to get pissed about. Now this.  Wouldn’t it be great if once, someone in authority told tell em to all f...off.


Muslim fury as Army uses ‘mosques’ on UK firing range

By Paul Sims

The Army was accused of gross insensitivity yesterday for putting up seven mosque-like structures on a firing range.

Muslim leaders said the replicas were used as symbols of danger and reinforced negative stereotypes of Islam.

The fake buildings - complete with green-domed roofs - were installed on the Black Beck range at Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire.

During training exercises, soldiers are instructed to fire at wooden targets mounted on rails which emerge from behind the ‘mosques’.

Last night, the Ministry of Defence apologised and said it had ‘no intention of offending religious sensibilities’.

But a spokesman said it was crucial that the ‘generic Eastern buildings’ were put up to replicate conditions in Afghanistan ahead of future deployments.

The Bradford Council for Mosques demanded the structures be taken down immediately.

Mohammed Saleem Khan, its chief executive, said their shape and colour made it clear they symbolised Islamic places of worship.

‘It is so obvious. Even a non-Muslim recognised the significance,’ he said. ‘We are trying to achieve unity and cohesion and encourage British Muslims to participate in the Army and we accommodate visits from the Army.

‘But anyone looking at the firing range will think about mosques and Muslims and think about them negatively.’

‘But anyone looking at the firing range will think about mosques and Muslims and think about them negatively

Kinda doubt it takes this for us to see them in a bad light, wouldn’t ya say?  They manage to do that without our help almost every day.

Close The Border, With Tanks

Mexico Loses Drug War, Cartel Controls Border Town




Sinaloa cartel takes Ciudad Juarez

After a two-year battle that has killed more than 5,000 people, Mexico’s most powerful kingpin now controls the coveted trafficking routes through Ciudad Juarez. That conclusion by U.S. intelligence adds to evidence that Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel is winning Mexico’s drug war.

The assessment was made based on information from confidential informants with direct ties to Mexican drug gangs and other intelligence, said a U.S. federal agent who sometimes works undercover, insisting on anonymity because of his role in ongoing drug investigations.

The agent told The Associated Press those sources have led U.S. authorities to believe that the Sinaloa cartel has edged out the rival Juarez gang for control over trafficking routes through Ciudad Juarez, ground zero in the drug war.

The twin border cities of Ciudad Juarez and El Paso, Texas, are a primary crossing point for drugs smuggled into the United States. Control of drug routes in Chihuahua, the state along New Mexico and West Texas where Juarez is located, is vital to Guzman’s efforts to grow his massive drug cartel’s operations.

Most recently, officials and experts believe the cartel is trying to take over of a series of small farming towns east of Juarez. The towns, across the Rio Grande from the Texas farming towns of Fabens and Fort Hancock, had long been under the control of the Juarez cartel and were historically used as staging areas for drug smugglers. But the arrests or killings of local smugglers have left it vulnerable to attacks by Sinaloa leaders.

I think the time for kinder, gentler solutions is over. Something intense needs to be done to shut this corridor down.

Yeah yeah yeah, if there wasn’t a market here there wouldn’t be a problem there. Who cares? The problem right now is that a huge and very well armed violent criminal gang is in control in this town and several others like it nearby. A crime army. On our border. I don’t think having Obama go and bow to them is going to fix things at this point.

NO, IT’S NOT WEEKEND WOMEN BUT AN OBSERVATION

I just happened across Demi Moore a while ago.  She’s 47 and still pretty enough BUT ...

What the heck is it about white ladies with fame and money who can look like goddesses and dress or model like bag ladies? What’s with that?

Hmmm. Maybe it’s a white thing?  You know.  So many have no dress sense at all.  Or, is it just a few who don’t but what the hell. Lets paint em all with the same brush anyway.  Yeah. That’s the ticket all right. Hey, look at Amy Winehouse. A major GAK!  So is Madonna. So many of the Hollywood ‘A’ list dress like they found their cloths under a bridge left there by a wino. But what ya gonna do?  It’s a white thing. Right? The list is too long but you know, if a few look awful it’s a pretty certain thing that the many do as well.  Proof positive that white women just don’t know how to dress.  So based on a few bad examples we come to one really STUPID conclusion.  Does that make any sense? Sure it does.  Of course it does.  But ONLY to really STUPID people!
