Evening notes

We didn't have a white Christmas, but we just might get a white Easter. The long-range forecast mentions temperatures of 4C on Easter Sunday. Great.

The mystery of famous French author Antoine de St Exupery, who disappeared whilst flying a mission during World War II, has apparently been solved. A former German fighter ace has come forward, admitting that he shot down St Exupery. He is famous for the story of The Little Prince, who lives on an asteroid.

The Princess Diana inquest has heard one more rumour that I don't care to hear about. Paul Burrell, former butler to the Princess, says he removed a blood-stained ring from Diana's finger after her death. Burrell himself has refused to give further evidence to the inquest. Want to know more? Read here.


  1. Sounds like it you want to have a chance of successfully hiding your Easter eggs, you'd best not dye them....just leave them white.  ;o)  -  Barbara

  2. we had a few white Easters when I lived in Montana; never stopped those Montanans from going out and having Easter egg hunts :)


  3. We've been out and about all day up Shap and Penrith way.  It was bitterly cold, but sunny up there.   The wind was blasting arctic cold from time to time.  This morning we woke to frost too.  If we get snow at the weekend I for one won't be surprised as it usually visits us around this time of year if it has a mind to.
    I am no longer interested in what new depths the Diana Inquest comes up with.  Sad to say....

  4. I don't know that I recall ever having a white Easter ~ it would be interesting to say the least for egg hunting!  

  5. and since when was Burrell  there?????????????????????????????????? That gutter rat's capacity for being utterly horrid know's no bounds.

  6. WTH is wrong with Paul?  Was he in love with or obsessed with Princess Di? He always has something new up his sleeve. I hope you do NOT have a white Easter!!

  7. Dearest Guido,
    As a child I adored the author Saint Exupery . Imagine how horrible I feel about this idiot shooting down this shooting star!
    I have always hoped (against rational thought) that Dianna was not murdered. She was such a fantastic , wonderful person!
