Just two days officially married and the sparks are flying about. But no one said it would be a bed of roses......ooops ......I meant I Iris........not her of course but the Fleur. But soon, as young lovers so often do, there was the make-up......not the cosmetic kind but genuine kiss and....steady......just words really... nice ones like I didn't mean what I said........ it was a mis-understanding.....and so on and on and on.....why can't they just send flowers....
In the language of flowers, an Iris means: your friendship means so much to me.

German party cool on Blair for EU......oct26 2009.
Joerg Essen, explained his party's position "We know Tony Blair for a very long time but I must admit there is a sympathy in my party for candidates from a smaller country," he told the BBC.
"We want to bring European countries closer together, and I think if someone is from a smaller country these people are more sensitive and they know the problems of the smaller ones, and I think that would be helpful for Europe. Europe is too dominated by the biggest ones".
"The EU should have no-one as its president. It is, and always was a treading block and giving it a president will merely blur the line between economic co-operation and political intervention."
