Jean Writes 2017


Lifestream 2017

Happy New Year!  May this year a better or even better than last year.

This year is going to be an interesting one.  Donald Trump, the much maligned man, will be occupying the Oval office of the White House.  Though USA is not the sum total of the world, Trump presidency will be felt by most of the civilised world.



  1. The main news today is the result of the 89th Oscars Best Picture award. It was embarrassing to say the list. The fake result was given and the fake winner, the LA LA Land, were already on the middle of their acceptance when they had to say that the real winner was Moonlight. Warren Beaty and Faye Dunaway (Bonnie & Clyde) said and showed the card they were given had Emma Stone’s name of La La Land so they assumed La La Land was the winner for Best Picture. To further complicate things, Emma Stone said she was holding the card and trophy the whole time that the Best Picture was being announced.
    Donald Trump must be in his element watching this goings-on as Hollywood has taken it upon itself to censure Donald Trump left, right and centre. Well how the Mighty Hollywood had fallen. Perhaps it should clean its own backyards of fakery before obsessing about Donald Trump. It is just so ENTERTAINING!!! LOL

  2. For the first time in the long history of Metropolitan Police Services (188 years) a female commissioner has been appointed.

    Congratulations Cressida Dick, I heard you truly deserve the position! 🙂

  3. Well, today is my birthday. I received a very lovely news as a birthday gift almost a couple of weeks ago which I cannot really say. I will though in a good right time.

    Cheers to me and to you all.

    Have a wonderful day.

    We went to Delisserie in Mill Hill for my Birthday Dinner. The restaurant is a New York Deli Style.

  4. The 64th Miss Universe pageant was held in Manila, Philippines. The eventual winner amongst 86 candidates was Miss France. The last time France had a Miss Universe winner was 60 years ago.

    Congratulations. Apparently Miss France was a clear winner, truly deserving, none of the brouhaha of last time when Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Columbia when in fact Miss Philippines won. The whole spectacle showed that though the girls were beautiful, they were not quite beautiful in behaviour. Hahaha

  5. Aha Theresa May is the first world leader to meet up with the newly elected Donald J Trump at the White House.

    Another thing is that the bust of Churchill removed from the Oval Office during Obama’s term has been returned to its former place of honour. 🙂

    It looks like this meeting affirms the special relationship between UK and the US.

  6. We went to church today to say a fond farewell to our local vicar, Reverend John Wainwright, who is retiring.

    He is not completely leaving the church of England but will probably do other things within the Christian community.

    Farewell,Rev. You are going to be missed. Thank you for all you help, support and advice during the years.
