gladys cooper, one talented and beautiful english rose, born on this very date in 1888

EYE CANDY from another time.  Sure wish it could come back.

By the time I discovered her as a movie goer and later movies on tv, she was an older woman and often played someone’s auntie or the hard nosed strict head mistress of a school.  It always seemed to me that she was in every single movie ever made in the 1940s’ and a good part of the 50’s. She was a much in demand character actress, and quite believable in every role she played.  Still, she was not a household name but her face would have been familiar to many.  For fans of the Twilight Zone, if you recall the episode of an old woman frightened of death, who was played by Robert Redford, then you’ve seen her. 
Well, quite by accident, I was not looking for her and didn’t even know her name, I found a bunch of photos and was really surprised by what I found.
Am happy to share the treasure. 

GLADYS COOPER, Dec. 18, 1888 - Nov. 1971

Widely acclaimed as one of the great beauties of the stage, British actress Gladys Cooper had the added advantage of great talent. Daughter of a London magazine editor, she made her stage bow at age 17 in a Colchester production of Bluebell in Fairyland; at 19, she was a member of the “Gaiety Girls,” a famous and famously attractive chorus-girl line. Graduating to leading roles, Cooper was particularly popular with young stage door johnnies; during World War I, she was the British troops’ most popular “pin-up.




.” Switching from light comedy to deep drama in the 1920s, Cooper retained her following, even when leaving England for extended American appearances after her 1934 Broadway debut in The Shining Hour. She made subsequent New York appearances in Shakespearean roles, thereafter achieving nationwide fame with her many Hollywood film appearances (she’d first acted before the cameras way back in 1911 in a British one-reeler, Eleventh Commandment).


Cooper was often cast as aristocratic ladies whose sharp-tongued cattiness was couched in feigned politeness; her film parts ranged from Bette Davis’ overbearing mother in Now Voyager (1941) to the hidden murderess in a Universal “B” horror, The Black Cat (1941)
She won her third Oscar nomination for her role as Prof. Henry Higgins’ mother in My Fair Lady (1964), starred as the matriarch of a family of genteel swindlers on the TV series The Rogues (1964), and even found time to co-star with a very young Robert Redford on a 1962 episode of The Twilight Zone.

World Record by building the largest house of free-standing playing cards.  Take a look

Wow .. Can you imagine how much patience this must take?  Almost as much as as explaining tech thingy stuff to me.  Right Drew?

I wonder if being an architect gives him an advantage understanding laws of stress or whatever. Of course it must. Whatever, it’s still nice to see this stuff.

Don’t breathe on it: Architect spends 44 days creating world’s biggest house of cards

By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 3:50 PM on 10th March 2010

An American architect has broken his own Guinness World Record by building the largest house of free-standing playing cards.

Bryan Berg used 218,792 cards to create a replica of the Venetian Macau, which is on display in its namesake luxury hotel and casino.

Berg took 44 days and 4,051 decks of cards to complete his model inside the Venetian, which sits at the heart of Macau’s Cotai Strip, the China-ruled city’s version of Las Vegas’ neon alley.

Since Macau’s casino sector liberalised in 2002, a spate of Las Vegas style gaming giants have transformed the once sleepy former Portuguese colony into the world’s biggest gaming hub.

Weighing 44 stone and measuring 33 feet by just under 10 feet, the model which consisted of cards stacked without glue or tape, nearly collapsed several times. 

(To us yanks, that’d be 616 pounds. wow)

Queen’s Trinity Cross medal scrapped… because it’s ‘too Christian’. in an UPSIDE-DOWN WORLD

Yeah well, you just can’t have that sort of a thing in a country with a thousand year history of Christianity.  Not the done thing at all dear boy.

I think I would truly like to hang the person who originally breathed the first PC thought and translated it into our world.  What a G--Damn mess it has left us all with.

I wonder how many pilots who were non Christians ( like an uncle) and flew in the AAF or RAF and won a DFC, handed it back because it had a cross on it?  And how about the Iron Cross? Or the Maltese? 

Queen’s Trinity Cross medal scrapped… because it’s ‘too Christian’

A medal personally established by the Queen is being withdrawn after it was deemed offensive to Muslims and Hindus.

The honour - known as The Trinity Cross of the Order of Trinity - has been ruled unlawful and too Christian.

It has been awarded to 62 distinguished residents of the former colony of Trinidad and Tobago over more than 40 years, including cricketers Brian Lara and Garfield Sobers, novelist V.S. Naipaul and many diplomats and politicians.

But groups representing the Caribbean islands’ Muslim and Hindu communities - which account for around a third of their 1.3million-strong population - had argued that the words ‘Trinity’ and ‘Cross’ were ‘overtly Christian’. They also said the use of a cross insignia was offensive.

Five British law lords, all members of the Privy Council, have ruled that the honour breached the right to equality and the right to freedom of conscience and belief.

The Council is an obscure body made up of senior politicians, bishops and peers.

They advise the monarch on the exercise of the Royal Prerogative and act as a final court of appeal for many former colonies.

In the judgment, Lord Hope of Craighead said that the Trinity Cross was ‘perceived by Hindus and Muslims living in Trinidad and Tobago as an overtly Christian symbol both in name and substance’ and as such breached the islands’ constitution of 1976.

It will be replaced with the Order of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago - a circular medal featuring a sun, stars, water and a map of the islands.

Lawyer Anand Ramlogan of Hindu association Maha Saba said of the decision: ‘It’s a vindication of the 40 years of disquiet and unease silently suffered by the Muslim and Hindu communities whose legitimate grievance with the Trinity Cross was flippantly dismissed by successive governments.’

So how come none of you blithering fuckin idiots didn’t turn it down if given?  And how come when a white rep. of this or any western govt. visits your turd world countries, they all adopt your native dress code and go thru all your very stupid looking rituals in respect for your backward asses without complaint.  Bah ... ya’ll aren’t worth it, really you’re not. Are any of you schmucks familiar with the term,” It’s the thought?” What ungrateful ppl you are. 

The implications of the ruling are being studied by lawyers in the Cabinet Office, which oversees the honours system.

Hugh Peskett, editor-in-chief of Burke’s Peerage and Gentry, warned that changing the names of titles to remove Christian references would destroy hundreds of years of history. ‘Part of the significance of an honour is its antiquity,’ he said.

The Queen is due to visit Trinidad and Tobago - which won independence in 1962 - in November for the Commonwealth heads of government meeting.

Girl becomes youngest scout to scoop up all 33 badges… at the age of nine.

Now why the heck would I post this possibly boring article on a mostly political blog site?
Cause there’s so darn much out there about feral yoots even in her age group that it just plain feels nice to acknowledge this one kid.
And I bet there might be a lot more that are not little savages.

Anyway, hey. All those badges?  This kid was sure dedicated and single minded and had her eye on her target.

She’s also a little doll and I betcha a darn good student.

She’s eye-candy in the nicest possible way.  But gee ... I sure hope she doesn’t grow up and become a civil rights lawyer.
Whatever she does do, I’d also bet she will be a success at it.

So hats off and Kudos to this youngster.

Girl becomes youngest scout to scoop up all 33 badges… at the age of nine

By David Wilkes
Last updated at 1:07 AM on 28th March 2009

When Rebecca Hooper joined the Cubs, she was determined to be more than just one of the pack.

It took her little more than a year to earn all 33 available activity badges.

She has become the first girl in the country and, at the age of nine, the youngest Cub of either sex to achieve the feat. 

Rebecca, who was ten this month, has been saluted for her ‘determination and enthusiasm’ by the Scout Association after mastering activities ranging from astronomy to animal care and DIY to martial arts.


Girls have been allowed in the Cubs since 1991, and Rebecca chose them over the Brownies because she found their activities more appealing.

She set to work after a pack leader jokingly told her that she needed to ‘pass all the badges’ before she could achieve her silver Scouting award.

Rebecca, of Toft Monks, near Beccles, Norfolk, hopes to become a vet and particularly enjoyed looking after her family’s pets for the animal carer badge.

For the Air Activities badge, she took her first flight in a small private aeroplane, which was organised by her stepfather Mik Horn, an IT technician, who has a private pilot’s licence.

Other badges saw Rebecca also attend judo lessons, make a computer desk, cook her family a roast dinner, repair a puncture on her bicycle, visit a synagogue, learn how to read a map, sail a boat and tidy up her local churchyard.

Her mother Helen Horn, a teacher, said: ‘I am really proud of her. She has been really dedicated and has had to work very hard to achieve this.’

Rebecca’s passion for Scouting is in the blood. Her mother was a Queen’s Guide, the highest Girl Guide award in her day, and her grandfather ran a Scout troop.

Rebecca, a pupil at Glebeland Primary School, will join the Sea Scouts in September - and her next aim is to get all their 60 badges. Her brother Ben, 12, is in the Sea Scouts, who meet in the same hall on the same night as her Cub pack.

There is clearly something in the Norfolk air that inspires the Cubs - last year the Mail told how ten-year-old Ben Spratling, from Norwich, won all 33 badges along with Leon Johnson, also ten, from Stockport.

Ramirez! (and a bit of News From The North)


PS - did you hear that there is no government in Canada? No, they didn’t shut the doors to save money. The PM kicked out their Parliament so they couldn’t give him the old toss.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper won approval to suspend the country’s legislature for more than seven weeks in a bid to stave off a challenge from opposition parties seeking to bring down his government.

Harper, re-elected in October, told reporters that Governor General Michaelle Jean, the country’s de facto head of state, agreed to his request to close Parliament until Jan. 26. The government’s first order of business will be a budget scheduled for Jan. 27, Harper said, calling on the opposition to work with his administration on a “stimulus” package for the country’s ailing economy.

“The opposition criticism is ‘we have to focus on the economy immediately’ and today’s decision will give us an opportunity to focus on the economy,” Harper told reporters outside the governor general’s residence in Ottawa today. “It is critical for the three parties to work together on the decisions that need to be made with respect to the budget.”

The main opposition Liberals agreed Dec. 1 to form a coalition with the New Democratic Party in a bid to accelerate a stimulus package for the economy and oust the Harper government. The separatist Bloc Quebecois wouldn’t be part of the government though agreed to help it pass any legislation deemed matters of confidence. All three opposition leaders say they’re still committed to defeating Harper when Parliament resumes.

I want to take this seriously, because Canada is our good neighbor to the north. But it does seem like this move will certainly give all their big shots a nice long holiday. If this happened anywhere other than Canada, I’d think it was some kind of junta.

The phrase Old Masters is sexist, authors and students are told.  (Here We Go Again)


About a month or so ago I posted something similar and asked, what next? How far is this gonna go?

Well, my answer appeared in today’s paper. These folks really need to find a job that involves an 8 hour day at the minimum.

I had originally intended to highlight just some lines to stand out, but this is so overly stupid and so overly bizarre, I’ve made bold the entire article.

My Moonbat Award for the week past ...  And it really is NOT funny.

The phrase Old Masters is sexist, authors and students are told
Students and academics are being banned from using the term “Old Masters” and “seminal” because of claims they are sexist.

By Martin Beckford, Social Affairs Correspondent
Last Updated: 1:40AM BST 20 Sep 20

Publishers and universities are outlawing dozens of seemingly innocuous words in case they cause offence.

Banned phrases on the list, which was originally drawn up by sociologists, include Old Masters, which has been used for centuries to refer to great painters - almost all of whom were in fact male.

It is claimed that the term discriminates against women and should be replaced by “classic artists”.

The list of banned words was written by the British Sociological Association, whose members include dozens of professors, lecturers and researchers.

The list of allegedly racist words includes immigrants, developing nations and black, while so-called “disablist” terms include patient, the elderly and special needs.

It comes after one council outlawed the allegedly sexist phrase “man on the street”, and another banned staff from saying “brainstorm” in case it offended people with epilepsy.

However the list of “sensitive” language is said by critics to amount to unwarranted censorship and wrongly assume that people are offended by words that have been in use for years.

Prof Frank Furedi, a sociologist at the University of Kent, said he was shocked when he saw the extent of the list and how readily academics had accepted it.

“I was genuinely taken aback when I discovered that the term ‘Chinese Whisper’ was offensive because of its apparently racist connotations. I was moved to despair when I found out that one of my favourite words, ‘civilised’, ought not be used by a culturally sensitive author because of its alleged racist implications.”

Prof Furedi said that censorship is about the “policing of moral behaviour” by an army of campaign groups, teachers and media organisations who are on a “crusade” to ban certain words and promote their own politically correct alternatives.

He said people should see the efforts to ban certain words as the “coercive regulation” of everyday language and the “closing down of discussions” rather than positive attempts to protect vulnerable groups from offence.

The list of banned words is now sent out to prospective authors by Policy Press, a publisher of social science books and journals based at the University of Bristol, but is also used in many academic institutions.

The University of Bristol’s School for Policy Studies recommends the guidelines to help students “challenge heterosexist assumptions”, and they are included in a “toolkit” to combat institutional racism included on the University of Leeds’ website.

King’s College London says they “may provide a good starting point” and Liverpool John Moores University provides a link to them in its students’ guide. The Open University said they are an “appropriate source of reference and advice” for students.

Napier University in Edinburgh says the list is “well worth looking at” while the University of East London advises its students they should “attempt to incorporate” it.

Even a secondary school in Norwich includes a link to the list on its website, with the statement: “Students may care to consider how far we inadvertently reproduce inaccurate sexist assumptions in the language we use, both written and spoken.”

The list of racist terms features black, which “can be used in a racist sense” and should be changed to “black peoples” or “black communities”.

Immigrants is said to have “racist overtones” because of its association with “immigration legislation”, while developing nations - intended as a more sensitive replacement for Third World - is “prejudical” because it implies a comparison with developed countries.

Although not included on the Policy Press list, the BSA warns authors against using civilisation because of its “racist overtones that derive from a colonialist perception of the world”.

Among the “sexist” terms to be avoided are “seminal” and “disseminate” because they are derived from the word semen and supposedly imply a male-dominated view of the world.

Authors are also told to “avoid using medical labels” when writing about disabled people as this “may promote a view of them as patients”.

In addition, the list says “special needs” should be changed to “additional needs”, “patient” to “person” and “the elderly” to “older people”.

“Able-bodied person” should be replaced with “non-disabled person”, it is claimed.

OKOK, I promise I’ll get to the more serious stuff in a minute. But first ….

Oh my ... Ain’t she pretty.  That isn’t a question.
Only 16.  Wish her well and hope it won’t spoil her as this kind of thing so often does.

It’s great a Brit girl won in the face of all the awful teen news here in the UK about girl crime and girl gangs etc.

British girl wins Miss Teen World
A British schoolgirl has beaten 25 young hopefuls to become Miss Teen World.
By Vikki Miller
Last Updated: 10:48AM BST 30 Aug 2008


Amy Jackson, 16, was crowned in Houston, Texas on Saturday.

She has now returned home to Knowsley, Liverpool to celebrate with friends and family.

She said: “I really thought I had not made the final five, but then I went on to take the title. I was completely shocked and so happy.”

Miss Jackson beat competitors from Korea, Mexico and Russia to win. As part of the entry, she was marked on her stage presence and her answers in an interview.

The teenager received her GCSE results while at the competition in the US, and found out she had achieved nine passes, five of which were As.

She is now considering going to live in Texas for a year to promote the competition. After that, she plans to start her A-levels and then go on to university to study law.

Miss Jackson reached the final in Texas after winning Miss Teen Liverpool and Miss Teen Great Britain competitions.

Her father, BBC Radio Merseyside presenter Alan Jackson said: “The contestants were asked to talk about their home town. She mentioned Liverpool FC, Capital of Culture, the Mersey – there is no shortage of things to say about Liverpool.”

Her 18 prizes include a modelling contract in the US, a wardrobe of clothes, a year’s supply of top cosmetics and shoes and a £10,000 scholarship.

My stomach was torn open… so I tucked my shirt in and kept shooting

I caught this story early today in our Telegraph and wanted to post it when I caught an email from our GOF, with a link to another paper with the same story.
The Daily Mail.  Thanks Grumpy ... The DMail version is much better as are the online photos and the awards to these wonderful young people I call,

It’s kinda frustrating even for me as a foreigner, to see and read about these kids while at the same time I see ppl of the same age sitting in a doorway in Winchester waiting for passersby to drop money in their hats.  All the while collecting benefits from the taxpayer.

Amazing stories of the selfless heroes of Afghanistan
By MATTHEW HICKLEY and PAUL HARRIS - More by this author »

Last updated at 09:07am on 7th March 2008

They all made a pact before they went to war.

Whatever happened to them in Afghanistan no one - dead or alive - would be left behind.

One night in Helmand Province, that pledge was put to the test.

In a terrifying split second, the close-knit group from one of the Army’s most battle-scarred units came under fire from a hail of Taliban bullets and rocket-powered grenades.

Four men were hit and several others temporarily blinded by phosphorus. Their screams of pain cut through the darkness as the ambushed platoon was pinned down by gunfire from two sides.

But the men of 2nd Battalion the Mercian Regiment knew precisely what they had to do.

And today the extraordinary heroism which allowed the young soldiers to keep to their pledge at any cost can be revealed as they are awarded some of the highest military honours.

The men repeatedly braved enemy fire to rescue their injured and fatally wounded comrades from the hands of the Taliban.

Private Luke Cole, 22, carried on fighting after half his thigh bone was blown away.

When another bullet ripped open his stomach, he simply tucked his shirt in tighter “to hold everything in” - and carried on keeping the enemy at bay until back-up arrived.

Sergeant Craig Brelsford, 25, continued to command his men long after he was critically wounded - and right up to the moment he died.

In a singularly selfless act, he ran to put his body between the enemy and his wounded comrades.

It protected them from Taliban gunfire, but cost him his life.

And the 25-year-old platoon commander, Lieutenant Simon Cupples, led a rescue party into the killing zone to carry the injured to safety and recover the dead - again and again and again.

Their astonishing courage - and that of scores of other British servicemen and women serving in Afghanistan and Iraq - is marked today with a raft of 184 awards.

They include the biggest batch of medals since fighting began in Afghanistan nearly seven years ago - a reflection not just of the ferocity of the conflict, but of the conspicuous bravery of British troops.

The ambush near the frontline town of Garmsir underlined the extreme danger that troops face daily in what has turned into a bloody and difficult war.

It played out into a six-hour pitched battle as both sides poured in reinforcements. But true to the pact, Lt Cupples and his men refused to withdraw until the bodies of two fallen comrades were recovered.

Telling their families back home that no one knew what happened to them, he decided, was “simply not an option”.

His valour and dedication is recognised with the award of a Conspicuous Gallantry Cross - the highest bravery medal after the Victoria Cross.

Yesterday he told the remarkable story of that night last September.

The young officer, now a captain, recalled how his men were advancing under cover of darkness when they came under devastating fire from a Taliban trench just 20 yards away, and then from other enemy positions.

“I could tell we had taken serious casualties.” he said. “There was screaming from the men around me. Because we were so close to the enemy it was very difficult to withdraw and regroup, but we couldn’t leave the casualties.

“It was asking a lot for the blokes to run forward into enemy fire like that.

“But they did it because their mates were out there. When you live and serve with your men like that it creates a very special bond. You would do anything for those guys. That’s what drove the soldiers forward.”

Captain Cupples, from Derbyshire, who married his sweetheart, Louise, shortly before deploying to Afghanistan, is due to return with his unit next year.

Also involved in the September firefight was Private Cole, from Wolverhampton, who is awarded the Military Cross.

See that link for photos and more info.  Impressive! But then, bravery always is. And the Brits have it in spite of all that goes on at home.  And I’ll get to that maddening subject later.

Barking Moonbat Of The Week

Perhaps instead of Googling “Gulf Of Tonkin” you all should Google “Psycho Bitch From Hell”. If Google doesn’t immediately show you pictures and verbal diarrhea from Rosie O’ Donnell there’s something wrong with Google. I swear, this Lard-Ass-Lesbo-Loser has gotten on my last nerve.

It’s bad enough that she has spent the last several years claiming the WTC collapse was a plot by George W. Bush to start a war overseas. If ABC doesn’t take this miserable moron mouth off the air soon the whole world will think we’re all crazy.


THE VIEW, March 26

ROSIE O’DONNELL: But interesting with the British sailors, there were 15 British sailors and Marines who apparently went into Iranian waters and they were seized by the Iranians. And I have one thing to say: Gulf of Tonkin, Google it. Okay.

JOY BEHAR: Some other time. Some other time.

O’DONNELL: Well, you know...

BARBARA WALTERS: It could be a decision making time. It’s a very difficult situation. It’s at the United Nations. It’s being examined now. Should there be sanctions? Militarily, we certainly don’t seem to be in the position to do something militarily. But it is a decision making time.

O’DONNELL: Yes, but it’s very interesting too that, you know, these guys, they went into the water by mistake right at a time when British and American, you know, they’re two, they’re pretty much our biggest ally and we’re considering whether or not we should go into war with Iran.

BEHAR: But the U.N. was about to sanction them, also have an embargo against Iran. And the, and the timing [unintelligible] so they distracted the whole world with this.

ELISABETH HASSELBECK: Right and they may be about to expel the inspectors right now, too, which could be considered [unintelligible]

O’DONNELL: Right or it could be just the Gulf of Tonkin, which you should all Google.

Barking Moonbat(s) Of The Week

It is official. Half of this country is barking mad. Unfortunately, they voted for Democrats in the last election and now they expect the Donks to do their will. Democrats are just now finding out about their insane, uninformed, incredibly stupid base.

Memo to Democrats: Good luck, assholes. They’re your people and you lied to them and used them to get into power. Now it’s up to you to figure out how to talk sense into these morons.

Barking Moonbat Of The Week

I can’t help it. This story was so outrageously funny that I had to give one of the players the award this week just for the pure entertainment value alone. I chose the player who started the whole kerfuffle that erupted into nuclear warfare between the Clintons and Barack Obama. Besides, Geffen is a Hollywood Liberal and I just love it when they start cat fights among themselves. Congratulations, David. Let’s do this again real soon!

imageimageDavid Geffen
(PEOPLE) - February 21, 2007

David Geffen gave the NY Times’s red headed hottie Maureen Dowd an exclusive and dished his real feelings regarding Hillary Clinton, Barack’s competition.

Geffen told Dowd: “Not since the Vietnam War has there been this level of disappointment in the behavior of America throughout the world, and I don’t think that another incredibly polarizing figure, no matter how smart she is and no matter how ambitious she is—and God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton?—can bring the country together.

Further explaining his devotion to Obama, Geffen stated:  “Obama is inspirational, and he’s not from the Bush royal family or the Clinton royal family. Americans are dying every day in Iraq. And I’m tired of hearing James Carville on television.”

“I don’t think anybody believes that in the last six years, all of a sudden Bill Clinton has become a different person,”

Geffen says, adding that if Republicans are digging up dirt, they’ll wait until Hillary’s the nominee to use it. “I think they believe she’s the easiest to defeat. Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
