Important Events

Two events of cataclysmic world significance: firstly, the demise yesterday of the Colonel at the age of 69, a man born in a Bedouin tent at the height of the Second World War. Secondly, the final of the World Rugby in Auckland on Sunday next, between France and the All Blacks of New Zealand. An estimated 2.2 million Kiwis will be watching. It is so important, that one parish vicar in the capital Wellington has requested all his parishioners to come to church wearing black, and has had a giant screen erected to allow them to watch the progress of the national team! It is interesting to speculate how he combines two religions....Meanwhile, we continue to enjoy the Fall and its rainbow of colors under a partly cloudy to sunny sky..

I am also curious if the Kiwis will win!

The second and the fourth picture are fantastic.

What a wonderful world when these two events seem momentous. so much seems to depend on where we look and how we see at what we are looking.

Once again, I know the answer...the KIWI's WON!!! I'm so stoked, because I predicted it weeks before the Rugby World Cup even started...and I issued my prediction on a New Zealand blogger's site :) If you don't believe me, check out Plum Kitchen! I did so at the risk of being labelled a pariah by my own countrymen, but I knew the way the Springboks had played this year, we had no chance of making it through to the finals.
