I deleted a post I had here, saying that I was kinda against war. To be honest I kinda put that up to fit in with the majority of my blog peers in their anti-war stance, because I could see their point of view, but didn't neccesarily agree. Didn't want to seem like some war-hungry, blood-thirsty heathen. I think that the scenes in Baghdad speak for themselves.
Congrats to Dave and Glen on the arrival of their new sprog. Kirsten Zoe, nice name. However I can't help but feel a little bit sorry for Dave who still has yet to obtain a little Dave Jnr to take to the footy. Never mind, eh Dave? And just think of all those weddings you'll have to fork out for!!!! Seriously though, all the best to the Dunlops and congrats again...

I'm just throwing out an invitation to anyone who fancies getting a wee group together to head down to a club called Skye in Belfast some saturday night. You can check out a wee review here. It'll be funky house all night, so if you like the music off that lynx ad with the guy dancing (and who doesn't???) by Room 5 then you should have no reservations about the tunes @ Skye. I've never been so it'll be a new experience for me as well.....

I'm not expecting a big response but thought I'd give it a bash
Sorry folks that I've neglected the old blog recently. We had a wee fight but now we've kissed and made up......

So I thought since Bush moved in just down the road today, I thought I'd better throw my 2p in (is that the correct phrase??) about this whole war....Forgive me if I offend you but I'm entitled to my opinion....Can open, worms everyhere......

Basically I'm really pissed that these anti-war protests are still going on....Like fair enough if you're anti-war, but like the things started so give it a rest. Believe me, Bush and Blair know that some people are super - pissed; they've got the message. They aren't gonna pull out of Iraq. I doubt if the content of the meeting will run along the lines of 'Well I think after spending all this money on sending weapons and troops out there that we should bring them all back. Especially since we're getting a bit close to Baghdad, maybe we should leave them alone after all.......' NO!! It's not gonna happen. Also I seen a protester on the news tonight with a sign saying 'Bomb Bush' What the hell is that about!!!! 'Peace on earth man.....but land a scud on George's head first' What are these people actually against???

I watched 'We Were Soldiers' th'other night. If you've seen it before, you'll know what an absolutely heart-wrenching movie it is. So I'm watching this movie and in total shock at what these men did in Vietnam. Then at the end it gives the names of all the soldiers who died in this particular battle the film focuses on. These people died for their country. Sons, Brothers, Fathers were taken away because they believed in something so much that they gave their lives for it. And that's what our boys are doing out there. They are putting themselves at risk so that we can live in a world that is free of an evil and oppressive dictator like Saddam. So whether you're anti or pro-war, lets support the soldiers that our away from their loved ones fighting for our country, and remember them and their families in our prayers...
