I have talked about CHOGM before. Checked the dates. Starts Sunday, November 10, 2013, Remembrance Sunday, in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Of course there will be the de riquer group photographs of all the important Heads of State from THE Commonwealth. Many, if not all, will be wearing poppies. That will be quite a sight.

Appears Canada’s whoever, what’s his name, the guy that is pregnant, Canada’s most famous politician, Rob ‘the cracker’ Ford, or somebody like that, is not going to attend.

GROBR.

Probably turn up wearing a White Poppy anway. So no great loss.

Gather the turbaned, wheezing old geezer from the Sub- can’t make it either. Thank Vishnu, Krishna, whatever and whatever. Another guy who is a total waste of time.

Here is Canada’s MOST FAMOUS son proudly wearing a Canadian Red Poppy. If anybody should be wearing a White One it should be this pregnant sex symbol, Canada’s sexiest man.

I learned something new today. Wearing poppies is NOT universal across the old Commonwealth!

Found this on Yahoo.

Here is a picture from that visit (I think). From 2011. Pictures one of my FAVORITE people — no, no, not the ‘tampon’ Prince.
Desmond.
My MAN! Just seeing his picture makes me feel good. What a person. South Africa was blessed to have him and Nelson.

Click for ‘The Telegraph’ original with the Poppy in the banner.

I looked for pictures of Nelson with a poppy. Couldn’t find any. There are some with Nelson with the Prince — but they are PLASTERED with copyright notices. So I won’t bother to show them.



Two other Newspaper reports, both from the ‘Digital Journal’, about Remembrance Day in Johannesburg, South Africa. In the first you can see Poppy wreaths BUT nobody wearing the blessed symbol.

The Australian cricket team, in 2012, while playing South Africa, wore the Poppy.

To the Americans that think Boston won a ‘world series’, IT helps if the competition is between TWO different countries.
