Better to stop before things really escalate, I think.
Sorry, I was posting as you did! :)

I never realized that Putin was that short, for some reason I was under the impression that he was the taller sort.

Thanks for an understanding reply,Alicky.:)

There has been an explosion at Jordan's port of Aqaba

Failed Jordan attack on US ship
A missile has been fired at a US Navy ship docked in the Jordanian port of Aqaba, officials said.
The rocket flew over the USS Ashland and hit a neighbouring warehouse, US Commander Jeff Breslau said.

its alarming that this sort of thing has happened while the King is away.

King diagnoses political ills

By Maha Al-Sharif
Political pundits were squeezing their minds pondering at the level of political discord, among the legislative and executive authorities in the country, that forced the Hashemite Monarch to address both authorities on the people’s frustration with their elected representatives. His Majesty initiated a key milestone to framework the duties and responsibilities of the executive and legislative authorities.

where is Queen Rania lately? Haven't seen her much since the vacation in Croatia.
I was expecting her to accompany King Abdullah in Russia.
Oh but I suppose she wants to spend time with her kids, esp. little Hashem.

I guess she and her family are in a very secure place because of what recently happened in Jordan:

(" Three rockets were fired at two US Navy ships in Jordan's Red Sea Aqaba port on Friday, but missed their targets and killed a Jordanian soldier on land." )from www.gulfnews.com :20/8/2005

There's a photo of QR after KH's funeral and she looks beautiful, if this is how she looks without makeup during the mourning days then I assume she is beautiful. Of course, not in the glamorous way she is now but I guess she is the sort of people that the least change would lead into an overwhelming result. All she did, beside the nose job of course which I think it's a piece of cake these days, is a mini makeover on her hair styles, makeup and wardrobe but the result came in fabulous.

Anyway, if she ever wants a long lasting and waterproof makeup, she should dump such brands as Christian Dior or Lancôme, brands like Ben Nye, Crylon and Atelier would do the task just fine .

I have never seen the color of Prince Hashim's eye, are they blue? If not, I think it's kind of disappointing that all of KA s' kids didn't inherit his blue eyes, the hue of them is attractive and I think his eyes are his best feature so it would be great if one of his kids would have them. I could be wrong because I never took a close look at their kids' photos but if the memory serves me, none of them had blue eyes .
