PM Gordon Brown’s ‘crucible of terrorism’

On his Monday schedule: UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has slipped off to Aghanistan today to consult with Pres. Karzai over Afghanistan, ‘the crucible of international terrorism’ as someone has decided to term it….here’s the video.

You know it used to seem a good idea when world leaders consulted together but these days we never know how the plans they hatch will affect us.

Perhaps today’s meeting between PM Brown and Pres Karzai will progress the ‘poppies vs tulips’ debate! Right.

Update 4.27.09:

Gordon Brown ‘snubbed by Pakistan President’: Gordon Brown received an apparent snub today as he arrived in Pakistan fortalks with President Zardari only to be told that he was not available to appear at a joint press conference afterwards.


A smidge of Art: speaking of tulips…Tulipa ‘Maytime’ is now available for download in my Lulu Storefront and more besides.

A big shout-out of Thanks goes to Donna D for the art request!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
