6 Jan 2011 – Happy Bday Cindy HALL
On the 12th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me Twelve Drummers drumming… and Christmas decorations all packed. The meaning of 12 Days of Christmas, if it has any, has yet to be satisfactorily explained. According to The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes, suggestions that the gifts have significance representing the food or sport for each month of the year. Nevertheless, whatever the ultimate origin of the chant, it seems the lines that survived today both in England and France are merely an irreligious travesty.
Today’s SIN news: Casual eateries join ban on kids to avoid ‘rowdiness’ Like fine-dining outlets, they say children disturb patrons –

THE ban on children at restaurants here is extending its reach from fine-dining establishments to include even casual restaurants. Such eateries cite the same reason their more upscale brethren do – to avoid rowdy behaviour that disturbs other guests.
Who do you think are responsible for these children and young people? When parents priorities are in the rat-race, the future society result in rats. It is too late to recall the pipe-piper, the 11 day of Christmas was yesterday when there were 11 pipers piping! Perhaps there is still a few hours of hope due to the time-zone difference 🙂
The major responsibilities of parenting are NOT of the grandparents, other family members, house-helps or society. Please don’t have children if you are unable to even help them build a foundation or stability to life, ie loving them enough to raise and discipline them into decent well-beings otherwise the whole society will suffer as we are seeing and experiencing in today’s society!
Congratulations to PS Cafe, will certainly make a visit there before returning to Norway.
