Cowart's Common Room

Today is Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Yesterday, Britain finally took a step towards having a new government, when Prime Minister Gordon Brown stepped down, in order that David Cameron could become the new Prime Minister. Cameron will preside over a new coalition government of Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, led by Nick Clegg, despite some serious differences between the two parties. It does recall the notion that politics makes strange bedfellows. (Clegg is young enough to be my son. Shocked)

In even better news, Faith's little Yorkie came through his surgery well. Faith "gets him back" later today, and it's sounds like there will be much celebrating in the household. And while we're on good news, congratulation to HS for getting a print included in International Exhibition of the Royal Photographic Society. HS and WW, the "dynamic duo" of photography. Lots of newsy stuff every day in the Common Room posts. Do make a point of checking, and sharing a picture, thought or experience.

Today's tea is Scottish Whisky tea, though it (strangely) contains no whisky. (Sounds like politics without politicians. Rolling Eyes) Store-bought lemon creams in the biscuits tins lemon with tea is good.

Hope you have a grand day!

Preseli Mags's Avatar Good morning Bear! That tea sounds most intriguing ...

It's the first time a Prime Minister has been the same age as me. Now does that make me old or the PM young?

I'm glad to see William Hague as Foreign Minister. I met (and interviewed) him when I was a reporter and he was Welsh Minister and - politics aside - he's a really nice person.

Interesting times for the British political system.

Have a good day everyone!

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Mmmm - not sure about the tea. What does it taste like? Perhaps I will try some. I can never understand why anyone would want to spoil the taste of a good cup of tea of coffee by adulterating it with whisky or brandy etc. But then, 'chancun a son gout' as they say here. (Can't find out how to put the accents on)
Pass the biscuit tin please - down, Rufus, DOWN!

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Hmmm not sure about the tea Bear...I am the anathema that is a Highlander that doesn't like whiskySad
Although I did find a very dark one once that was more like bRandy that I could be persuaded by (I believe it was called Loch Dubh)
Looks like our MP is up for the Scottish Secretary and he's only 37.

Westerwitch's Avatar Go on then I'll try it. Like FN not mad about whisky, or rather very particular about what I drink. Whisky tasting tea . . . . after you with the biscuits Rosie.
