Dirty tricks in America

During a conversation with a volunteer guide at Winston Churchill’s residence Chartwell in Kent about the “special relationship” between Britain and America I overheard a determined American voice asserting that Obama had removed the Churchill bust from the White House upon assuming office in 2009, as evidence of Obama’s anti Britishness and pro Islamist views!

It’s a shame that this kind of gossip has gained currency, and I attach a shot of Cameron’s backside (probably his best side) being shown viewing Churchill at his 2010 visit to Obama.
I wish Obama luck in next week’s election.

On a cultural front the English influence arrived in New York with the Beatles in 1964, culminating with  TYO, Joe Cocker, and The Who at Woodstock in 1969.

I arrived, with many UK students in 1970, and loved our weekends away on the sand dunes of the south Jersey shore, principally in Wildwood NJ.

The recent effect of Hurricane Sandy on this territory has been awful. Bless you Americans.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
