Excuse my Sweaty Palm - BBC & K. Kaunda

I picked this grovelling piece up from the BBC news sight....

"News has been to Zambia as part of a special series looking at how
Africa is faring one year on after the promises of increased aid made at the
G8 summit in Gleneagles.
Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia's first president, talks
to Jon Cronin about life in office, his hopes and fears for Africa, and his
one-time dancing partner Margaret Thatcher.
"Although my voice is croaky
because I'm having a slight cold, I will sing you a song."
With that Kenneth Kaunda,
Zambia's founding president and the man who played a crucial
part in southern Africa's liberation struggle, takes up his guitar and
begins to sing.
The former leader lives a quieter life now than when he
led Zambia through 27 years
of one-party rule.
These days he devotes
much of his time to the battle
against the spread of Aids, one of the
biggest threats facing the region.

Two Rhino's fighting

This photograph of two Rhino's Fighting was taken at Paignton Zoo in Devon. I am not a great lover of Zoo's but this one is excellent.

From the great samurai philosopher Dr. Seuss

From the great samurai philosopher Dr. Seuss:

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead,
and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat.
I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

Reflect on this and be at peace.

Biased BBC

http://www.biased-bbc.blogspot.com/ Found this interesting Blog, worth a look see.
Is the BBC biased, not just biased sometime they appear to simply make things up. Or maybe i am being too harsh, maybe they do not bother to check stories before they go on air.

Not a abomination

""Tom Wright, the Bishop of Durham in the UK, warned that a moratorium was needed on creating any bishops living with a same-sex partner until there was consensus in the church.

But in an impassioned speech, Bishop Robinson argued that the question was whether the church recognised the life of Christ in its gay and lesbian members.

It was not primarily about the future of the worldwide Anglican communion, he said.

"I am not an abomination before God," he said. "Please, I beg you, let's say our prayers and stand up for right."

He told the BBC that resolutions proposed by the convention were part of a conversation - one that he would not shy away from.

"I won't walk away. I will stay here and I will talk with anyone who is willing to talk. I will be as faithfully true as I can be with people who can be equally as faithful," he said."

This quote was taken from the BBCnews site. What does the last sentence by Roinson mean? It sounds like 'Spong speak'
