Holiday in Malta.

type102

I went for a week with my wife to Malta in February. The weather was great, warm and sunny about 63 during the day but can get cold at night.

But it was completely different to our past holidays spent in Spain and Portugal.

No music bars or karaoke bars, none of the usual shops you would see elsewhere, very little entertainment outside your  hotel.

United Nations Condemn Vatican.

type102The united nations report out to-day condemns the Vatican for not doing enough to protect children and to name and prosecute paedophile Priests who carried out these acts.

People thought the new Pope would turn things around and get this all sorted out to the benefit of the church, it’s people but most of all the children, but all he has done is to start an enquiry which will take about twenty years to report back with the findings that nothing took place and everything is fine.

The big favourites were taken apart, the Denver team and the quarter back hadn’t a bloody clue what to do to stop them. The defence should have stayed at home for all the good they were, and as for the attackers how many times did they fail to get the first ten yards.

Well done Seattle Seahawks you played like champions.
