From my all time favorite newspaper in the whole world the
U.K. “Daily Mail”.

As is my normal wont I am NOT giving you a direct link to the article that contains these pictures.
The article, though, as ever, VERY POSITIVE about this wonderful,
World Class tribute

is about a stupid controversy raised by another U.K. newspaper.
I don’t want to confuse 
any of you with that.

If you want to see the article use the above link to access the admirable “Daily Mail”.
You will find it easy enough.
All I will say is screw the bloody ‘Guardian’. 


One of these Blood Red Poppies is MINE.

Paid for it in August.

I won’t get it till January 2015 — but that is FINE with me.

Wear your Red Poppy with PRIDE.

This is all great stuff.
I LOVE it.
Anything and everything to promote Poppy Day.

Yes, it makes me very homesick.

The acronym ‘TfL’ that occurs in the article refers to ‘Transport for London’.

Enjoy.

I have been wearing my Canadian Red Poppy, with pride, this week.

During my morning ritual of listening to an hour of CNBC financial news while lying in bed, drinking coffee and reading ‘stuff’ on my 10.2″ Le Pan pad, I heard on Wednesday morning that Fiat Chrysler intends to spin off Ferrari as a separate company. Made sense to me. Ferrari owners must be fed up of hearing jokes that their $300K is nothing but a souped up Fiat.

Just wished that I had had the foresight to own Fiat Chrysler shares before this announcement. I might toy with looking into getting a couple of shares in the new Ferrari company. Though I have driven in one once that will be about as close to Ferrari as I will ever get. If nothing else the ground clearance on Ferrari’s just don’t lend themselves to dirt roads like the one that I live on.

Then I heard one of the CNBC clowns claiming that Fiat Chrysler was keeping Maserati because it was a better brand. I cannot comment on that. I do not know either of these makes BUT it put in mind something that I am more familiar with: Rolex vs. Ebel.

Ebel, hands down, is a better timekeeper than Rolex. But nobody in the U.S. other than the true cognoscenti have heard of Ebel. So Ebel, other than in the right circles, has no status, cachet, in the U.S. So folks buy and wear Rolexes.

Well to me that is what it boils down to with Ferrari and Maserati. Ferrari has the ‘pulling power’. Maserati will only be appreciated by the experts. Offering a young lady a ride in your Maserati, in most U.S. cities, probably bar L.A., will probably be misunderstood to you trying to be crude. But you say Ferrari — and you are all set.

So Rolex vs. Ebel. Ferrari vs. Maserati.

Now I remembered. I really must keep an eye out for a real cheap Ebel.
