Not putting those on as they have my friends in them.

However, it's been in the press:

Compassion, kindness, generosity of spirit: all three apply to Panayiota Drougas and her husband, Dimitris, as they pace the platform of the train station at Idomeni.

There is no reason in the world that they should be here. Idomeni, at the best of times, is a godforsaken place: bleak, barren and infused with a melancholy typical of remote border posts. It is a starkness made more haunting still by the thousands of refugees who, following the railway tracks that have led them to this northern corner of Greece, now live in a squalid camp that has sprung up around the Macedonian frontier – which is, of course, why the couple are here.

“We saw their little faces on television, all these children, so hungry, so tired, and just wanted to help,” says Panayiota, a retired headteacher, handing out the 150 chocolate-filled croissants the pair have brought with them. “They are refugees – they don’t want to be here,” she sighs, eyes streaming in the cold. “We see it as our duty to show them that someone cares. We’re going to spread the word, tell former colleagues and friends to do the same.”

They are not alone. The conviction that compelled the couple to purchase the croissants, get into their car and make the drive from Thessaloniki is one that many appear to share.

Hardship, Greeks have discovered, comes in different shades. For six years they may have been in the eye of the great eurozone storm, buffeted by the depredations of austerity, the byproduct of their worst crisis in modern times.

But the sight of thousands of refugees stranded on their shores, often with little more than the clothes on their backs, has now taken them somewhere else. As the numbers have grown so, too, have the acts of altruism – some recorded, some never seen – nationwide.

In Idomeni, pensioners struggling to make ends meet buy two loaves of bread, one to share with those who have descended on their tiny community; elsewhere, villagers open their homes. On Aegean islands that have borne the brunt of the influx, shops – hard hit by plummeting consumption – donate supplies.

In Athens, where passenger terminals, parks and public squares have been turned into chaotic reception centres, Greeks of all backgrounds and ages have rushed to join the relief effort. Everywhere, NGOs speak of an explosion of giving that has taken them aback. “I could tell you so many stories,” says Caroline Haga, a Finn seconded for the past four months to the country, with the International Red Cross. “In Samos and Chios, recently, every shopkeeper I met wanted to give something for the children. It’s amazing, considering what they’ve been going through themselves. And more and more, every day, are signing up as volunteers.”

Indeed, giving Stormee the information he requested was never going to satisfy him, as his subtext was obvious, but I thought I'd try and give him the benefit of the doubt.  Obviously will not be something I will repeat.

Seriously stop making pathetic excuses

You clearly are not a woman, so why the sham?

As to Tommy, that is a long going bout we have, but I do not hate him or anyone, which shows how you fail to understand anything

You are ganging up and its utterly childish. You constantly make excuses and never admit what you are doing is wrong

So grow the hell up

But - But those voices within his wee-little brain have become agitated {yet again} and despite his acknowledging LordFouls post and repeated post about:

See yet more infantile insults

Again you can call me anything you like, its not going to change a single thing you are shit stirring the pair of you

Again you are not a woman because you were exposed at saying many things no decent woman would ever say where you went off claiming I only could sleep with prostitutes or something as infantile, to your potty mouth is worse than when I swear, and supposedly for an old dear
It simply does not add up



So, once again grow up and I will continue to say this until you do

In fact what started the diversion was Stormee requesting the photo's I spoke about of Greeks helping the refugees, I was kind enough to show him some that didn't didn't have images of my friends on, and he then insinuated that they were library picture, not from my facebook friends. 

So I'd be grateful if the thread was kept open and people like Stormee and Didge did not get the chance to get it shut.

You and storm started and then aspca came along and joined in
Didge asked you all to stop. Isn't that what happened?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

See my post above,   I had every right to complain about Stormee's insinuations and if Didge had not tried to stir thinking he was making himself look angelic, that is where it would have stopped.  Don't get fooled by didge again.

Yes sassy. I saw how it transpired.
You brought a remark from another thread onto here and storm retaliated then aspca came and defended you and attacked storm blah blah
Didge said "neither of you are debating..etc"

Like I said: I didn't see didge do anything on this particular thread (because this is the one we are discussing!)

So as was said earlier:

Then #1   {uncontrollable need to chest bump} and dictate rules that HE NEVER FOLLOWS...dribbled his 2cents worth and the conversation became all about 'HIM' --- isn't that what motivates his royal asinine mentality!  Derail and make the topic all about #1

So when you are absent is this the method that is going to be allowed to continue confused ; because if it is I really need to know and perhaps a formal announcement from the entire ADMIN TEAM should be done ASAP.

1. Glückel of Hameln (1645-1724)

Glückel of Hameln (Photo credit: Wikipedoa.org)
Wrote a memoir of Jewish life in Central Europe covering the second half of the 17th and early 18th Centuries. Her book is an important description of what Jewish life was like at that time. Her account of life provided scholars with an intimate picture of German Jewish communal life in the late-17th-early eighteenth century Jewish ghetto. It was a time of transition from the authority and autonomy of the Medieval kehilla, toward a more modern ethos in which membership in the community was voluntary and Jewish identity far more personal and existential. (For more information)

Israel’s first and the world’s third woman to hold such an office, , she was described as the “Iron Lady” of Israeli politics years before the epithet became associated with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. ; She was often portrayed as the “strong-willed, straight-talking, grey-bunned grandmother of the Jewish people” (For more information)
 
6. Rabbi Regina Jonas (1902-1944)

Boudicca (died 60/61AD)

First comes Boudicca, warrior queen of the ancient Iceni tribe, who led a rebellion that nearly ended Roman rule in Britain. When the Romans plundered the tribe’s lands in modern-day Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, flogged Boudicca and raped her two daughters, the Iceni rose up. With other tribes, they wiped out the Romans’ Ninth Legion and sacked their strongholds at Colchester, London and St Albans, taking no prisoners (according to Roman historians) and massacring at least 70,000. But it is Boudicca alone, standing tall and Titian-haired in her chariot, who is remembered among the freedom fighters, and honoured with a dramatic statue, arms raised, by Thomas Thornycroft, near London’s Westminster Pier.

Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603)

If Boudicca is the feistiest figure from Ancient Britain, Elizabeth I is surely the most famous in more recent history. She is also the first of three queens not born to rule but nonetheless outstanding monarchs. She escaped the disgrace of her mother, Queen Anne Boleyn (executed by Elizabeth’s father, King Henry VIII), then survived the politically dangerous reigns of her brother, King Edward VI, and her sister Queen Mary. Eventually inheriting the throne herself, she emerged a powerful ruler, adept at boosting her popularity by ‘progressing’ around the country and playing up her image as “the Virgin Queen” – ¨though her closeness to her “sweet Robin”, Lord Leicester, might suggest otherwise. While many see in her a charismatic queen addressing her troops as they awaited the Spanish Armada, to others she is the evil executioner of Mary Queen of Scots, the woman who should have ruled England, rather than Elizabeth, merely the daughter of the king’s former mistress.

Elizabeth I

Nell Gwyn (1650-1687)

Of all royal mistresses down the ages, none has graced the job more joyously than “pretty witty Nell”, as Samuel Pepys called her. From an orange girl selling fruit to London theatregoers, Eleanor Gwyn rose to be an actress who caught the eye of the merry monarch, King Charles II, and ended up with a royal pension and a splendid house in Pall Mall. When Nell first made her mark on the stage, London was reveling in the return of the king and court life (in 1660, after the Commonwealth period of Puritan rule), and the spirit of Restoration London is epitomised in her ample-bosomed portrait. High spirits, low birth and earthy humour naturally made her enemies at court, especially among the king’s other mistresses. But, with Charles, she remained a favourite and tradition says that, on his deathbed, he urged his brother to take care of her; just as Lord Nelson begged others to look after his concubine Lady Emma Hamilton.

Jane Austen (1775-1817)

Few lives could be more different from Nell and Emma’s than the morally upright spinsterhood of Jane Austen, our most celebrated woman novelist. The story of her life in rural Chawton and fashionable Bath has been told times over; and her subject, as every reader knows, was the “truth, universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife”. But while Regency London’s high society might be led by libertines, Jane’s demure heroines know full well that even a runaway romance which ended in marriage, like Lydia Bennet’s, brought shame and destroyed her sisters’ hopes of finding husbands. From Pride and Prejudice and Emma to Persuasion, Jane’s final story, it is Jane’s genius to observe, and sometimes satirise, their attention to status, manners and reputation.

Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845)

Mrs Fry may be the least familiar of our famous ladies, but her pioneering work as a prison reformer has long been recognised and still earns her a place here. Born into the Gurney family, her marriage to Joseph Fry united two old and wealthy Quaker families, equally noted for piety and philanthropy, and Elizabeth became deeply involved in charitable work and the Quaker ministry. It was a visit to Newgate jail that opened her eyes to the appallingly squalid conditions women prisoners suffered, crowded together with their children. Thereafter she became a familiar figure, in her Quaker dress and bonnet, prison visiting and reading the Bible. Her campaigning and religious convictions succeeded in reforming prisoners and their conditions, by introducing education, paid employment, female warders, and recognition that all inmates must be treated humanely.

Queen Victoria (1819-1901)

Victoria is the second queen who came to the throne by default, when her royal uncles, King George IV and King William IV, failed to produce a surviving legitimate heir. Crowned in 1838, her initial limited grasp of constitutional matters was soon supplemented by her husband, Prince Albert (whose death in 1861 left her in mourning for the rest of her life); and her favourite prime ministers, Lord Melbourne and Disraeli. With their help, and the colonising power of British forces and trading companies, she became the most powerful woman in the world. At home, her scandal-free private life made royalty respectable, after the racy behaviour of her uncles. If the rigid formality of her Court now seems absurdly stiff, it’s worth remembering that her Court composer was Sir Arthur Sullivan, co-creator of the comic Gilbert and Sullivan light operas.

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910)

The first woman to hold the Order of Merit and appear on a UK banknote, Miss Nightingale was a national treasure before she was 40. Her pioneering work tending British troops in the Crimean War earned her the thanks of a grateful nation. The money raised in appreciation funded her nurses’ training school at London’s St Thomas’s Hospital, and from there her influence and principles spread worldwide. Despite her own ill health she devoted the rest of her long life to improving sanitation and health care, not without a reputation for bossiness. Yet her popular image remains that of a “ministering angel”, as The Times’ war correspondent put it, paying night time visits to the wounded soldiers. Every year, her birthday in May is marked at Westminster Abbey and East Wellow church, in Hampshire, where she was buried; and this year there are special services for the centenary of her death, as well as new exhibitions at St Thomas’s Hospital museum, redeveloped for the anniversary, and at Claydon House in Buckinghamshire, where she often stayed with her sister.

Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928)

Historians may disagree on the help or harm that Emmeline gave to the women’s suffrage movement, but few doubt she was one of its most inspirational figureheads. After years working for votes for women, but with little success, Emmeline, helped by her daughter Christabel, established the Women’s Social and Political Union as a militant wing of the women’s movement. Their campaign of window-smashing, arson and violent demonstrations led to regular arrests, hunger strikes and brutal force feeding, which inevitably drew mixed public reaction. On the outbreak of war in 1914, Emmeline suspended the campaign, encouraging women to put their efforts into war work instead. After peace was signed, women over 30 were granted the vote, and shortly before Emmeline’s death the age was reduced to 21, to match men’s votes.

Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013)

As Britain’s first female prime minister (1979), Mrs Thatcher’s place in history is rightly guaranteed. Yet it is her 11 consecutive years as PM, unmatched in the 20th century, and her role as the first woman leader of a major Western democracy, that make her one of the most dominant figures in modern politics. As leader of the Conservative Party, her pro-privatisation policy and public-spending cuts naturally brought her into open conflict with trade unions and socialists, earning her the nickname the Iron Lady. With victory in the Falklands War and her narrow escape from an IRA bomb in Brighton, her popularity soared and, in 1987, she won a then unprecedented third general election. But her Euro-sceptic and Poll Tax policies had caused division in her cabinet and, in 1990, she was forced to resign as party leader. Two years later, she went to the House of Lords as Baroness Thatcher.

Queen Elizabeth II (1926- )

Like Elizabeth I and Victoria, the Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was not expected to become queen. But the abdication of her uncle, King Edward VIII, propelled her father to the throne, as George VI, and when he died tragically young, in 1952, Elizabeth found herself ruler of the UK and Commonwealth. Since then she has witnessed greater changes in her realms – in society, science, technology, medicine and world affairs – than any of her predecessors can have imagined. They would have been astonished, possibly appalled, at the millions of miles she has travelled, hands she has shaken, and public engagements she has fulfilled. But they would have admired the unwavering sense of duty that has given Britain a head of state for nearly 60 years whose personal standards of service to her country must be the envy of many countries. And doubtless they would have applauded the courage and humour in her Annus Horribilis speech in 1992, only hours after her much-loved Windsor Castle was devastated by fire.

listen sassy...I asked both you and dige to lay off the personal nonsense and so far (within reason) you have both managed it....GOOD

So it's tag teaming to stand up to someone calling you liar.

probably NOT...but it IS tag teaming for the two of you to have a go at didge for trying to stop you and aspca from continuing to fall for Stormees nonsense...why not just tell Stormee to F**k off...no need for post after post of pointless bilge back and forth between you and her...  how many postw wer you GOING to expend chewing Stormee?? talk about killing a thread

I'll note that next time more than one person is having a go at tommy, you and I included.

how many times do you need teaching the difference between "tag teaming" and multiple people challenging a post or even an ideology expressed here...

Another woman I quite admire is, Princess Diana, although we will never know if she played the victim or actually was, the victim.
Still she did an awful lot for AIDS and personally, I found that touching and much-needed at the time.
