Where will you be Spring/Summer 2011?

17 Nov

Well, I hope I’ll be somewhere watching The Royal Wedding.

That’s right. Prince William is FINALLY going to make an honest woman out of Kate, or Katherine as he made the announcement to the world, yesterday.

So, here’s my question. Is the lady going to do a flip reversal and start dressing and acting like a ‘royal’?

Here’s Kate in 2008- note: this was for a charity, roller-blade party!

Here’s Kate Wearing a neat skirt suit, she was joined by Prince Harry and Camilla Parker-Bowles at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, when William received the Knight of the Garter – becoming a Royal Knight Companion and the 1,000th Knight in the order.

 

Will she remember to take the labels off the shoes when she gets married? I do hope so.

I wish them all the best. I think they make a lovely couples and she seems ‘normal’.

Oh, I hadn’t seen this before! It’s hilarious!

a random thought

8 Nov

Why is the big red, white and blue country spending billions sending troops to afghanistan/pakistan/ (goodness knows where else) when there are children in africa starving to death.
How is it that so much money can be spent on wars and destruction, destruction that is not actually needed. Why not fix something that is actually ‘broken’? Instead, YOU, yes, YOU being the *blank* *blank* are spending millions on crap, basically.
Michael Jackson was right. We need to save this planet, protect it, make it better. How about by starting with the poor? Feed them. Give them clothes and fresh drinking water.
How about troops going on strike? Refusing to join? Why do these guys keep going to fight unnecessary battles? There is no war on terror. Leave these countries alone and maybe they will leave you alone too. What do you think? You reading this, Mr O?

Miss Simpson on her way!

29 Sep

Miss Jessica Simpson is on her way to Kuwait. She will most likely arrive sometime tomorrow morning/lunchtime for those wishing to catch a glimpse. She will be performing for the troops at the camps, north and south.
Wish just once we could have a concert for us. Taxpayers money in the states are paying for her to fly here, first-class…good their money is going somewhere useful.
Thank God we don’t pay tax, eh?

It’s all so difficult!

15 Sep

I always find Winter ‘difficult’. I’m never sure what to wear and I especially hate Fall… it’s that in between time when you just aren’t sure whether it’s hot or cold…one sweater or two? a jacket or a coat?

Well, just to make it a bit easier, I thought I’d post this year’s trends for this coming Winter 2010/2011!

Trench Coats are back …much to my disgust, I’m not that keen on them, I think they are old and haggered looking but I found this one from Gucci and it is quite nice

It is of beige colour which is much easier to keep clean than white. The material is biscuit wool cashmere drill. It has a beautiful horn button closure with hidden placket, front slash pockets

*90% wool and 10% cashmere

Retail price – 500kd.

What’s next? Shoes? Dresses? Have a look…….

Shoes, well that’s going to be difficult to ‘pin point’ an exact trend..Issey Miyake are opting for ballerina shoes for fall – bit cold no?, Limi Feu for Doc Marten style boots, Anne Valérie Hash for brogues and Mulberry for low boots.

Comfort seem to be the main issue for this winter which DELIGHTS me. As well as flat shoes, designers are making our lives even more easy with practical and easy-to-wear items. Oversize mohair jumpers were Sonia Rykel’s favourite, while Givenchy went for winter-sport style pullovers, Marc Jacobs opted almost exclusively for knitwear

As for dresses, we are going 50’s…yes, you heard that right, retro and vintage are the key words here.

As for trousers Ladies, well, you aren’t going to see much of a trend in them. As we are dating back to the war era…well, ladies just didn’t wear trousers then. Skirts and flouncy dresses all the way. What’s coming next year? 1900’s? It’s almost like we are just working back………..year by year……..

This isn’t rotation, this is preparation.

14 Sep

Well, it seems I’m not the only one thinking..the question isn’t IF but WHEN… Dailymail1 has also been thinking along the same lines as myself.

So, here’s what I’m talking about……..

Michigan – 700 deployed to Kuwait

Monatague – Troops headed to Kuwait NOT Iraq

Rhode Island – Troops from Rhode Island headed to Kuwait

West Virginia – 1800 Troops from West Virginia heading to Kuwait

NH – The biggest deployment since WWII heading for Kuwait

New England –  Deployment commences

Ok, you get my point, I’m not posting any more links BUT ….there are also troops heading here from Florida, Minnesota, New York,  New Hampshire, Delaware, New England and Lousiana………these are the ones that I have found so far….

So- HERE IS MY QUESTION.

WHY?

Are America going to give us a ‘false flag’ attack?

Are Iran going to hit Israel?

Are Israel going to hit Iran?

Are America going to hit Iran?

Well………………………………

All I can say is, God Help Us.

Update: Just read two more .. Alma and Tennessee National Guard also on their way.

This isn’t rotation……….this is preparation.

War seems imminent

5 Sep

Found this article

Ex CIA agent in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards confirms Obama administration has ordered a MASSIVE BUILDUP of U.S. forces in the  Gulf STARTING with Carrier Strike Group 10, headed by the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier. Just last Friday an armada of more than 12 U.S. and Israeli warships passed through the Suez canal amid extreme security provided by Egypt. The ships are headed for the Red Sea and from there to the Gulf. ANOTHER FOUR U.S. warships will be making their way to the region to join the STRIKE GROUP. The Americans have also conducted joint air and naval strike practices with France and the U.K. under the command of American forces, while GERMANY IS SENDING WARSHIPS TO THE AREA, also under the command of American forces.

Both Israel and the U.S. HAVE positioned nuclear-armed submarines in the region. Israel has conducted multiple tests on its missile defense systems to protect its citizens once war breaks out. U.S. and Israeli Special Forces have been deployed inside Iran to investigate potential targets and gauge the willingness of Iranians to overthrow the current regime.

So, at first, I thought, nah, never going to happen but this could be true.

If you twitter and search, ‘kuwait’… you will be shocked at the number of soldiers that are actually using twitter and probably giving out more information than they should. Why did 15,000 leave the states yesterday, due to arrive in Kuwait, today?

Why have Kuwait bought more missiles?

Why did Obama pull troops out of Iraq when it is still unstable? He needs them elsewhere??

I think this is something that we all need to keep a close eye on, keep our passports with us at all times and be ready to get our families out if need be… Drastic you may think but I don’t want to be stuck here when Iran lets off a nuclear bomb. No thanks 🙂

anyway, all this is one person’s fault………….and nothing can be done now.

Oh and one other thing……….. Obama said, Iraq is now secure, troops can leave……..

check out this video. LMAO Look VERY secure. Right?

Update: just found this, interesting…

Unless the reports carry an arithmetical error, the United States sold to Israel an enormous stock of a million tons of JP-8 aviation fuel.

The choice of JP-8 makes sense for an autumn strike because the fuel’s flash point of 38 degrees Celsius make it dangerous to carry in external tanks on long-range flights in summer.

Shelf life of JP-8 is 18 months, but guidelines suggest using it within 8 months. The limitation is especially important for long-range flights from Israel to Iran. Presumably, Israel will receive the American stocks from Iraq, which were produced earlier. The IAF would have 4-6 months to use the fuel.

The amount of fuel suffices for all the IAF jets to fly to Iran 400 times each. So it’s either we’re gearing towards an all-out war, or there is a reporting error, or perhaps the Americans dumped their excess fuel on us at subsidized prices.

This is really scary, I hope nothing does happen. Allah Yastir 😦
