SUNDAY CHOICE “The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives in dramatic—and often traumatic—ways. “Lockdown”, for instance, has become part of our everyday vocabulary in many cities and countries around the world, as restrictions on movements are imposed to curb the spread of the corona virus and living with these restrictions can be challenging.  “The COVID-19 pandemic has served to divide some relationships with loved ones along the lines of vaccination. While in some cases there may be valid reasons for refraining from vaccination, such decisions have repercussions. Given the tensions that COVID-19 vaccination disagreements may cause, relationships may take more work to maintain.  While vaccine hesitancy has decreased over time, many remain unvaccinated across the country. Tensions between those who have been vaccinated and those who remain unvaccinated have the potential to cause a rift in some friendships and relationships with family members. Unfortunately, these disagreements extend even beyond vaccine decisions, as many people still ...

    “BOUNTIFUL BANANAS” – by Des Kelly Source: https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/banana-7/           We used to call them Plantains in Ceylon of the good old days, as I remember them. There were many wonderful varieties, like Kohlikuttu, Aana-maalu, Suwendel, etcetera, and I even remember the tiniest plantain which was named the Sugar-banana by the British, I suppose, because this is where the name “Banana” came from. Being a fruit that was readily available back home, I became very fond of them and would sometimes make quite a meal of them, buying beautiful combs of the fruit, ripened to exactly how much I preferred them to be, from the banana palace in Wellawatte, for just a couple of rupees, per comb.  I loved to choose bananas that were not over-ripe in the slightest, because once they started to show brown spots on the peel, the fruit would very quickly lose their ...

Buckingham Palace – by Des Kelly “THE PALACE”           “EXTRAORDINARY”, is perhaps the most unique description of this building in the heart of London. My thanks to Chris. Lawton who recently forwarded this astounding video of the “place” that is more or less the home and office of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the 2nd, the longest reigning Monarch in history to date. This palace, plus all the other magnificent castles, etcetera, that are owned by this Queen is a worthwhile reward for a Monarch who, in my opinion, fully deserves everything she has been granted in life, as she has practically given all her long years in life, simply to benefit her people, both in England, and the Commonwealth of Countries that come under her reign. Queen Elizabeth has been a most praiseworthy Ruler, having promised her Father, King George the 6th, at a very early ...
