Hi folks,

News-wise, all eyes are across the oceans as Trump and his campaign team face a series of high-profile legal battles but there are a few stories this side of the pond which we’ve been keeping an eye on.

Firstly, the looting of British Second World War shipwrecks 
by thieves stealing steel from the vessels. These ships are designated war graves as they still contain the remains of sailors killed during the conflict in the Far East. It can’t be stressed enough that this pirate activity is profoundly disrespectful to say the least and should be dealt with immediately to prevent any further damage to the resting places of some 830 war heroes.

The second story that grabbed our attention was the fact that the majority of young people (and an awful lot of the overall population) don’t know when the First World War happened  or how many servicemen and women lost their lives in the conflict. It’s this sort of ignorance that directly leads to situations like the story above, where people feel no connection to the sacrifices of the past. We’ve got to do more to ensure that people are armed with the facts if we want to reduce the risk of history repeating itself.

Let us know what you think about these stories or any others that have caught your eye recently over on our Facebook page,  just keep your comments PG-rated, please!

Joke: Cows

A former is being interviewed about his cows for loacl TV.

Interviewer: How much milk do these cows give?

Farmer: Which one? The Black one or the brown one?

Interviewer: Brown one.

Farmer: A couple of litres per day.

Interviewer: And the black one?

Farmer: A couple of litres per day.

Interviewer(naturally a bit flummoxed): I see. What do you give them to eat?

Farmer: Which one? Black or brown?

Interviewer: Black.

Farmer: It eats grass.

Interviewer: And the other one?

Farmer: Grass.

Interviewer(now annoyed) : Why do you keep asking which one when the answers are the same?!

Farmer: Because the black one's mine.

Interviewer: Oh, and the brown one?

Farmer: It's also mine
