This was funny and rather SAD. Played right into the ‘Fake News‘ narrative.
To be fair, the U.K. “Daily News” quite often steals the march over the rest when it comes to breaking U.S. news.
Not today. Got it totally wrong.
I was watching it live on TV when I pulled up the ‘Daily Mail’ on my pad. The TV is telling me that there is confusion and the ‘Daily Mail’ is emphatic. HUGE type too.
Hurts their credibility — and yes, I know that there are millions that will claim that the ‘Daily Mail’ has never had any to begin with. That is a tad unfair. I started reading the ‘Daily Mail’, while living in the UK, daily, home-delivered, over 40-years ago. So, we have a long history. But, I am UPSET with this. They should not have rushed.
The ‘Thunderbird Lodge‘, right at the entrance to the Canyon, is the historic & iconic hotel at Canyon de Chelly. This bell has been there for ages. It is well known. I have yet to find out what it was used for. It might have been a meal bell given that it is at the back of the cafetaria.
I took all of these, bar the yellow lily, this afternoon at the AltonHannaford. [The lily was at the McDonald’s across the ‘road’.] So, I am using my Sony a7 II, with the big 90mm lens, kneeling down, when I hear this voice saying: “aren’t we so lucky“. We was, of course, talking about the flowers. I had to agree.
When I saw a news story this morning that Michelle Obama had officiated at a wedding over the weekend, it got me thinking. I kind of knew that ex-First Ladies do not have an automatic right to perform marriages. Yes, she, as a very qualified lawyer, could easily be a Justice of the Peace (JP), but I had never heard of her mentioned as a JP. Then I vaguely recalled that I had also read that Barack had officiated at a wedding.
Is that a prerogative of a President and does it get carried over even when he leaves office.
I had to look it up.
Aaaahhhh! Simple when you know. They became ‘Temporary Officiants‘. In their case that would not been very hard. Cool. Neat. Glad I looked it up.
