Gunman Kills At Least 12 In Thousand Oaks, California, Bar Shooting
The shooter was armed with a Glock 21 .45-caliber handgun with an extended magazine that he purchased legally in Simi Valley

I woke up to another maddeningly senseless shooting. I had recorded the Premier League match between Everton and Brighton-Hove Albion Wednesday night and I was able to hide my head and soul from the carnage in the replay of the match.

This is why we have these interludes to real life - especially now that they come weekly to our television screens.

BHA just tied the match at 32:55. At the least for the next hour or so I won't have to listen to anything more than the incessant chant from the fans in the stands.

Well, the only games I watch are the big internationals and my beloved Manchester United, though I only tend to tune it towards the end and I watched the second half of the Juventus Champion League game. So, I was kinda doing other stuff coz Ronaldo the Portuguese man scored a goal for Juventus and I had given up...…. but then they scored two goals in the last minutes and won the game by two one! I was very excited!

But as for the guns and the shootings, well of course top story here in England and so very sad.... yet again. I hate guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Football? Americans get confused over that! ("Foot" + "ball". Hmmm....)

I hope everyone understood that I meant 'soccer' (ugh, sorry) when I mentioned the Premier League.

Association football = soccer, a term that originated not in America but in England:

It isn't just Americans who refer to association football as soccer. The soccer term, which @Jehanne noted originated in England, is also used in Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and others.

Personally, I find Aussie Rules the most interesting variant, but it's not as easy to watch on American telly as it once was. Sad

So, of course, first..... Miki..... Oh Miki..... Miki, Miki, Miki!!!!!!

England 3 USA 0

Aaaah…. enjoyed that. Didn't watch it but saw the goals on the news. So Aussie Rules Tara? Absolutely fantastical, for more than one reason! Fun, lots of action, free flowing...… and ….. buff guys in skimpy tops and short shorts. Could watch it for hours, only drawback, the cameras often too far away to watch the interesting bits closely. Embarassed It's on BT Sport quite often. Celia xx

I have heard people refer to soccer as being "football" here in the US, some guy on Fox Sports; he was from Europe, though.

I actually had lunch with her back in 2012 when she was pitching an inclusion of her athlete oriented facility in one of my real estate projects. (Didn't go anywhere, but she was nice!)

What's happened to all ya pics Miki? I reckon your pic hosting site is up the creek! I use postimage.io, it's reliable and folk can't access personal picsfrom it coz it goes via a url.... oh lordy loo if they could access some, I'd die of lingerial shame, sheer brazen shame. Embarassed BTW, came here to say England beat Croatia 2-1 with late goals and are in the semi finals of the Nations Cup, not the world's biggest tourney, but not bad!

I have been using a site named tinypic.com that will take an image and resize it. I tried logging on to it today and I was getting 404s.

I have a couple of website, I should probably upload and refer to those urls.
