A liar? Really????

Joana case: court says that Leonor Cipriano lied

The Court of Faro will request the Public Ministry to open a judicial inquiry on Leonor Cipriano over the crime of false statements in the trial of present and former PJ inspectors within the “Joana case”.

In the ruling, that was read out on Friday and which the Lusa Agency accessed today, the collective of judges considered that the statements that Leonor Cipriano produced during the trial sessions contained “flagrant and relevant contradictions”, and therefore determined that a certificate should be extracted, to which a copy of the tape recordings was added.

In the verdict, it is mentioned that the mother of the child that disappeared on the 12th of September 2004, in the village of Figueira, in Portimão, “was offered (…) an extensive opportunity to reveal the truth” during the trial sessions at the Court of Faro, but “essentially seized the opportunity to lie”.

“Leonor Cipriano lied about the manner in which she was beaten, about the identification of the persons that beat her, about the time and the manner how she revealed that she had been beaten, in short, she lied about every essential aspect of the statements that she gave”, the verdict stresses.

Underlining that Leonor Cipriano presented “no plausible reason whatsoever to have done so”, the collective of three judges, presided by Henrique Pavão, considered that Joana’s mother revealed “major contradictions” and that she presented “very different versions for one and the same fact”.

The verdict, which will also be sent to the PJ’s Department of Discipline and Inspection, where an inquiry is being held against present inspectors António Cardoso and Paulo Marques Bom, considered the aggressions as proved, although without establishing the aggressors’ identity, and determined the condemnation of two of the five arguidos in the process.

Gonçalo Amaral, a former coordinator of the PJ’s Criminal Investigation Department in Portimão, who was acquitted of the crime of omission of denunciation, was condemned to one and a half years over the crime of false deposition, with a suspended sentence over a similar period.

Inspector António Nunes Cardoso, who is still in service, was condemned to two years and three months over forgery of document, with a suspended sentence over two years.

Former PJ inspectors Paulo Pereira Cristóvão and Leonel Morgado Marques and still inspector Paulo Marques Bom, who all stood accused of the crimes of torture against Leonor Cipriano, following the questioning at the PJ in Faro, in 2004, were acquitted.

Leonor Cipriano and her brother, João Cipriano, were condemned by the Supreme Court of Justice to 16 years in prison each, over the crimes of homicide and concealment of Joana’s cadaver.

Hi Claudia and all,

I wonder if P/poops is booking his/her flight to dash over and give the liar a supportive hug!

Clàudia, no es posible...

¿Mentir esta santa señora? ¿Esta madre inocente? No puedo creerlo... :)

Si dio al menos cinco versiones diferentes fue... fue... bueno, no sé por qué fue, pero seguro que las cinco versiones eran verdaderas.

http://www.herald.ie/world-news/madeleine-detectives-banned-by-hospital-from-quizzing-suspect-1750981.html

Claudia apart from all the carp in that article is Portu-guese ever spelt like this. Also is this not breaking some sort of law to imply such a thing about a European Police Force! Impersonating a Police Officer is a crime one would think implying such (especially to a nation) about the 'Portu-guese police' would be an offence!

No. Of course it's not spelt like that. But does any of it still surprise you? :-)

WHAT DOES BRUNT MEAN TURNS INTO A FARCE? IT HAS BEEN A FARCE WITH ANYTHING CONNECTED TO THE McC'S SINCE 4/5/07!

Madeleine Investigation Turns To Farce
Breaking News12:57pm UK, Tuesday May 26, 2009

Martin Brunt, crime correspondent

Efforts by private investigators to quiz a new suspect in the Madeleine McCann case turned to farce today.

Hewlett had been refusing to speak to the McCann detectives

Raymond Hewlett, 64, this morning agreed to meet the detectives - but they were already waiting to board a flight back to the UK.

They then refused to return to the hospital in Germany where he is being treated for cancer.

Yesterday, the McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell gave Hewlett an ultimatum to meet the investigators by this morning to "help clear his name".

Hewlett, a convicted paedophile, wheeled himself into the car park of the hospital in Aachen and told waiting reporters he would speak to the detectives.

Zodiac and Claudia

Publications using columns often accidentally retain the word division required at the end of a line when there is later editing and the word no longer occupies the same position in the line. You often see it.

Obviously nobody thinks it is spelt like that, any more than you intended to leave out two question marks in your post lol.

Cláudia said...

Hi, Zodiac!
Brunty may be starting to see the light! LOL

Cláudia said...

HI, jennyH.
If those were the serious innacuracies, I would be happy.
xxxx

JennyH said...

I agree Claudia.

Typos are inevitable; you can't say the same about incorrect facts.

Newspapers have so many inaccuracies (and not just on this topic) that you take them with a pinch of salt. Of course some papers are better than others. I automatically distrust anything I read in a tabloid.

Cláudia said...

Hi, JennyH.
What worries me is when the innacuracies are on purpose. And even after the newspaper/website is alerted to the innacuracies, it chooses to insist on them...

JennyH said...

Quite right, Claudia. Some newspapers follow the principle of 'never let facts get in the way of a good story'. Those papers aren't worth lining your cat litter box with imo.

Cláudia said...

The problem, JennyH, is that there are too many which are run as a circus. Oh well...
xxxx

Zodiac said...

Hi JennyH,

The reason I sometimes put two questions marks is because a GNR officer I believe wrote. Raptor (??)

Claudia I think my mouse has a stutter sometimes when pasting. It pasted the same part of the article more than once, either that or I have a nervous twitch!

Cláudia said...

Hi, Zodiac!
Have you been listening to the pink one lately? ;-) LOL
xxxx

JennyH said...

True. But I think everyone in the UK knows which newspapers are rubbish!

Cláudia said...

Hi, JennyH.
But what are their sales figures?
xxxx

JennyH said...

Zodiac ha ha -- I meant your two questions had no question marks. But I was just joking and using them as examples that such things are irrelevant. As Claudia says, it's facts that count.

Don't worry about the stutter. Someone sent me an email yesterday and fifteen arrived ...

Claudia

Are you trying to tell me that intelligent, educated people are in the majority in Portugal? Not many countries where that is the case! 'Mass circulation papers' are just that: designed to please the masses.

Cláudia said...

Hi, JennyH.
The market here for tabloids isn't good. We only have one true tabloid. One in between a tabloid and a serious newspapers and 4 or 5 serious daily papers. We had another but it had to close because they didn't sell and went bankrupt. No other tabloid tried to take its place.
Have to go for a while.
Will be back later!
xxxx

Cláudia said...

Before I go, just read something quite amusing. The pretendy detectives stated that if the seriously ill pervert didn't have anything to hide, he would cooperate with them, talk to them and answer their questions so they could rule him out (or in...).
Who was it who refused to answer 48 questions posed by the Police who was investigating her daughter's disappearance? Hmmm...
Pathetic idiots. Don't make your bosses look worse.

JennyH said...

Claudia

There is the same appetite for lurid news in all European countries. I've seen the newspaper stands in several countries and find it hard to believe Portugal is so different. I have had a look at examples of the Portuguese press and I can see that many of the serious ones have sections with a tabloid feel. When the population is not high (the UK has over six times the Portuguese population) compromises have to be made. Also, in many countries the stuff published in tabloids here appears in magazines.

Newspapers like the Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Financial Times, Independent and Observer are among the best in the world for their quality of journalism.

It is the sheer numbers that make it possible for the tabloids to succeed. Below a certain print run it isn't profitable. You also have to look at factors like the number of people who read papers at all. The number is very high in the UK; I don't know about Portugal.

Cláudia said...

Hi, JennyH.
I didn't say here it was so different. I said this is not a good market for tabloids. here is one which is daily and the other one (which was weekly, I think), went bankrupt.
If people want lurid news, the internet is great for that. Most people who spend their money, want to spend it well because unfortunately there isn't much! LOL
Even our only tabloid suffered some changes very recently. It is no longer a newspaper. It is now something between a newspaper and a magazine. I take it something wasn't working. I have no idea about the number of people who buy newspapers.
Had to call a plumber to solve a small problem here. The bell rang and it was a woman. I know I shouldn't be surprised. But I was. Husband and wife own the business. :-)

Cláudia said...

Just read that a British couple is celebrating their 81st wedding anniversary. That should be worth a new Nobel category prize.

JennyH said...

81 years is some achievement. I wonder whether they have anything new to say to each other. Mind you, at that age I think the familiar may be very comforting.

I ordered some heavy furniture recently from a couple who run a furniture store. The wife did her full share -- possibly more -- of hauling it upstairs. Plumbing isn't normally very heavy work. So good for the plumberess. I think I might trust a woman plumber more than a man, I don't know why! Men always seem to have good reasons why something can't be done.

Zodiac said...

Claudia,

I have just read that article. They have a 74-year-old son. That is a lovely article.

Cláudia said...

Hi, JennyH.
81 years should be worth some sort of award.
I read that the husband is 101 and the wife 100. Maybe neither are able to hear, which would explain why it lasted so long! :-)

"Men always seem to have good reasons why something can't be done."LOL!

JennyH imo it is not irrelevant when it is in a newspaper. Especially when children are encouraged to read newspapers to develope their reading skills and understanding of the English language.

Cláudia said...

Hi, Zodiac.
Nowadays spelling, grammar and sentence construction are out of fashion! :-)
xxxx

JennyH said...

Zodiac, nobody is fussier than I am about language standards. It's a uphill battle. But I would never encourage children to learn anything from the tabloids! Dreadful thought.

That said, typos are not uncommon in daily newspapers as they are printed under pressure and on the run. The best sub-editors can't always spot everything.

Cláudia said...

Language standards, Jenny? Come on, how old-fashioned! ;-)

JennyH said...

I know, I know. I just try to be tolerant and look where it gets me LOL.

I did edit a company newspaper once and boy, is it difficult to avoid typos under pressure. You read what you expect to see. Then you accidentally reverse people's names in captions and they go beserk because they are so important you are supposed to know who they are.

Zodiac said...

JennyH obviously parents would be careful with what papers they choose for their children to read.

Cláudia said...

Hi, JennyH.
It reminds me of my master's dissertation. There was a hunt for typos. I asked 3 different people to read it to detect them.

Hi all!

Finally I get some "me" time (don't worry, kids are in the room next to me and not in a room in a flat I just about can't see down the road), and I have problems with this site! I keep getting error messages saying it can't display the site and then all goes blank! I only got back on here through following a link from Joana Morais' site and even that wasn't working the first time I tried. Also, none of the avatars are showing, just empty boxes, is it just my laptop or is anybody else having problems?

Well I never, LC a liar? Surely not?? (two question marks just for you, Jenny ;-))

I think and I hope that Xxxx has had a nice birthday, but I'm shattered now as I haven't stopped rushing aorund today.

First of all, Xxxx had a bit of a strop as she had a fall-out with her friend over nothing at all. We couldn't bury Willow for ages as it poured with rain all morning and I desperately didn't want Xxxx to see her, or us burying her.

Next, I knocked over the chocolate fountain as I forgot the lead was in a place where we wouldn't normally have one (kid free area but unfortunately not mum free - Lol!). Chocolate everywhere - noooooo!

One of her friends didn't turn up at the shop where she said she would meet us so we went over to collect her. Her mum said that she gets very nervous away from home and might not last the night out & sure enough, we had to walk her back at 10pm.

Another friend of mine brought her son over who has Aspergers syndrome and he had a bit of a silly half hour and was angry with everyone and so he has now gone home too.

The karaoke machine which Xxxx wanted for her birthday has been playing up and so I may have to take it back.

We have already emptied two full bin bags of rubbish and I feel like i've been cleaning and cooking for a life time!

Now all is cleaned up, bar the balloons and the mountain of bedding that the girls will be sleeping under tonight and a few party popper cardboard tops. I have no printer ink left in my printer and so I printed out an important application form at my mum's yesterday, only to find that somebody has put a drink on top of it and all of the ink has run - arrrrggghhhh!

I think I could have emptied a shipping container full of chimps in the house and there would have been less devastation! I cleaned the bathroom this afternoon and the girls have all used face packs and left the bathroom looking like half a dozen coal miners have had a communal wash on the floor in there!

All appears to be peaceful now and they are all happily and, most importantly, quietly watching a film. Me, I think I need a week's sleep now!

Goodnight all.

Hi Cláudia,

How can the Daily Mail make this statement? "Madeleine McCann hunters claim the Algarve is awash with paedophiles." Surely that must be libel.

It looks to me like the Mc Cann's have lost the plot. They seem to be randomly accusing anyone that takes their fancy.

They seem to have forgotten Madeleine completly. Poor child.

The worst part is that some people seem to be believing this latest load of tripe!

All I can say is: GRRRRRRRRR!

JennyH said...

Dylan, that description of a kid's party is classic. I particularly liked the adventure with the choc fountain. Plus a hamster funeral in the middle of it all. That needs a publisher.

Thanks for the two question marks! One per question will do lol.

Hi Cláudia,

Blogger seems to be acting up, just got the same error message and had to use JM's link to get here :-(

All of the party kids have gone now and I have one left who I'm looking after until Thurs eve. Tired this morning!

Rachel's rogatory statements are on Joana Morais' at the moment. I didn't have time to read it all but there are some good comments. It looks like K & G's aim to sue GA has brought loads of people to sights like Joana's and it is good to see that many are now having doubts about the McCanns and can't believe how one-sided our press has been. I suspect that there are many more than those who comment too. K & G did themselves no favours and many people are sick and tired of the continual persecution of 'suspects' and the Portuguese, and cr@p that they choose to distribute through the media!

Have a god day all.

Zodiac said...

Hi Claudia and all,

Dylan you deserve a medal! Sounds like the children had a fab time!
My friend bought a chocolate fountain and decided to use it for the first time when she invited colleagues (all female that she had just befriended in her new job) over for supper one evening after work. Her husband had the task of setting up the fountain and placing it on the large dining table before she arrived with her friends. This was to be her spectactular centre piece! Whilst she and her friends chatted over supper and drinks (in her recently re-fitted, re-decorated kitchen) her OH prepared the fresh fruits and arranged them on a large platter with mallows etc. He was going to be their delightful pudding waiter. Well he switched on the fountain and chocolate splatted everywhere they all got covered with chocolate, the walls, ceilings and new kitchen units and appliances were dripping with chocolate. She was so emabarrassed her colleagues designer clothes were covered with the runny chocolate and she said they were not amused. If it had been a normal dinner party with her normal friends then we would all have been POSL! In the end she was more upset about her kitchen it was just new and she had waited about 20 years to get it. It took an age to clean and the walls and ceiling had to be re-painted. She has moved on from that job and can laugh about it now however at the time it was really awkward for her even though she did offer to pay for their dry cleaning!

Anonymous said...

Hi Helmy,

The McCanns are keen to push the "look how many paedophiles live in Portugal" mantra because they want to propogate the myth that Madeleine was abducted. What is utterly revolting is that given this, they keep saying she is alive and well and have no reason to believe she has been harmed.

I saw on the PH-H that antis are now paedophile supporters. WTF? What cotton wool world do they live in? I think it is those that say that M is not harmed that either belong in this category or they have no idea what paedophiles do to their victims. I can't think of a single anti who has ever said that condone paedophilia. On the contrary, I speak on behalf of all of us in saying that we find it abhorrant and stomach-churningly repulsive. Under no circumstances would I ever want to imagine that Madeleine is with one of those such charcaters. If the pros would like to think that, then so be it, but don't ever accuse antis of supporting such scum and stay away from me and my kids.

Still have a load of clearing up to do.

Hi ALL

Oh are we all Peadophile lovers again those were the days on the DX they really belived if they called us enough names we would all run away and hide...

Dont ya just miss the girly gang and their total support for parents who not only could not be bothered to look after their children prefering the bar but on discovering their child missing worked out a time line did not bother to look for her (which is a shame as now we are being told the abducter only lived 500 yards away) and long past the DX days we find out Mummy cared so much she would not help the PJ by ignoring all their questions....

Lets face it if Madeleine was missing they have played a very dangerous game with her life by putting themselves first which is evil...

I cant belive a mother would take a chance like that with her childs life which is why I dont belive them...

Let's hope Amaral has something that can put an end to this farce then we can all chat about nice things and never have to deal with a pro again (well some of them are nice but the paid to post brigade will all be on the dole)...

Can anyone confirm to me the latest comments that I have read elsewhere that Amaral said he knows where the body is and will be revealing it in his next book.

This cannot be true, surely no one in their right mind keeps that sort of information for a BOOK.

I take little notice of press reports but I was wondering if he had been on Portuguse TV and said something that has started this rumour.

Portugal awash with P's! They really do spout a load of BS. I remember when Shannon Matthews went missing I was totally shocked by the huge amount of P's on the register in just a small radius where she lived! So just how many are registered in the UK? Just how many are there that are not registered? There is no where safe on the planet to leave children in the circumstances that the McC's left their children. Those 3 little children then all aged 3 and under were a danger to themselves let alone abduction!

Can you please try and find out if he was on and what he actually said.

The tick tock BS is a trademark from the brainless.
I'm not a mission person. Mr Amaral was on tv yesterday afternoon. Anyone saying he stated he knew where the body was but is waiting to reveal it in a second book is on (heavy) drugs. And should also be careful.
Got to go.

I guess it would have been front page news if he had said it. if he had said that on national tv, which I do not think he did, I would have said he was on heavy drugs:-) I got to go too

Chrisp said...

Hi all

I've read you all but never posted before. Great blog!

Apparently Dr Amaral said he was 'close to finding the body'. Anything about knowing it and saving it for a book was not said at all. I think Joana Morais has the video on her blog now. I can't watch it with my slow connection, but followed the quick translations on 3As.

All the best

Cláudia said...

HI, Chrisp.
Thanks.
Of course Mr Amaral didn't say such a thing. He has been a police officer for 28 years. If he ever suspects/finds out where the body may be, the first thing he'll do is to call his former colleagues. That, however, doesn't mean people aren't working on it. I'm sure Mr Amaral isn't meeting other former detectives to play Monopoly...

Hi, G.
I had to post this or I would feel really bad about it. I shouldn't have said what I said in my last two posts. Not today. Having said that, Happy Birthday, girl!!!! Have fun but go easy on the bottles. Ignore the posts until tomorrow, when it's not your birthday anymore. :-) Then, it will be from the bottom of my heart.

Glad you enjoyed the vids, Cláudia and Zodiac. Us simple Norfolk folk are the laughing stock of England, but they say that being able to laugh at yourself is a very good quality! I love the "visit Thetford" part, "but leave before you get a criminal record!!!" - sorry Thetford! We have a whole book on Norfolk words too.

I never cease to be amazed at your language skills, a lot of Brits wouldn't understand our peculiar diction. Does Portugal have a version of the "chav"? or an area where they are more concentrated? Ours originally were from Essex, although it's a bit unfair as I'm sure there are plenty of bright people there who aren't even remotely chavvy! They're just a small part of the very varied and interesting cultures that we have here in the UK & I wouldn't want it any other way.

Off for a bit now.

Claudia, I am reading a fiction book called 'Guernica' by Dave Boling set in the Basque region of Spain. Have you ever been there because I like the mentality that seems to be associated with this group in general. And is there language anything like the gutteral Portugese which I think sounds Russian to me.

Message for RP,

I'm not scared of taking my children to Portugal, because I look after my kids on holiday. I NEVER leave them in a creche because my holiday wouldn't be any fun without them, and I certainly NEVER allowed them to babysit each other at such a tender age. In fact, I would really LOVE to visit Portugal with my children, if only I had the money.

So, please don't try to publish such rubbish that people are justifiably afraid to take their kids to Portugal. The only people that SHOULD be afraid are those that neglect their little ones, and, in any case, their kids would be unsafe wherever they go - even if they went nowhere other than the local pub and forgot that they had small children that depended upon them. Shameful.

This vendetta against Portugal has to stop. Full stop.

Claudia,

I think it must be my accent. Foreign people especially think I am Russian. I remember being in Central Park NY and my daughter was having her portrait done by a Chinese street artist. My husband and I were chatting whilst she was having her drawing done and one of the other artists asked if we were Russian. There was a foreign woman having her portrait done also by another artist. I smiled at her and the men with her as it was an excellent likeness. One of the men spoke to me in a foreign language. I tried to tell him I did not understand. He must have understood a little English and I tried to talk to him, he pointed at me and said " you Ruskie". I do not know if it is perhaps the accent and perhaps I might speak quite fast.

Cláudia said...

Hi, Zodiac.
I asked because Russian sounds different from all other languages to me. Apart from other sobiet languages, of course. :-)

Hello

No one is scared of visiting Portugal are they??? I know a few people going this year with their children and they are no more at risk there than they are in England...

Unless they decide to Neglect them night after night to go to the bar whilst leaving the children alone in an unlocked room crying...

Would this be a good time to mention never to sedate your child loose your temper with them and if god forbid they have an accident calling an Ambulance is a better idea than calling Sky news???

I cant belive our press is being so bloody stupid child neglecting parents are the new good news story and a child friendly country like Portugal is turned into peado central... England 2009 cares more for parents who did nothing for a missing child than it does for the missing child it is shameful...

Hi Claudia and everyone -

The Pink One is uttering his usual tripe and saying that Hewlett has an eerie resemblance to the George Harrison lookalike.

He must be having a laugh because they are the complete opposite of each other both in age, and skin colour, eye colour etc. Someone should recommend Specsavers to him!

And the media seem to agree with his every word as usual.

The Daily Wail said that Hewlett has now provided DNA evidence, but of course it's no good in relation to this case they say because the inept PJ's didn't take any unidentified DNA from the apartment, which would have been a bit difficult considering the McCann's had Uncle Tom Cobley and all in the apartment from the moment they decided Maddie had been abducted!

Just why are the media so one sided in this case. Are they so scared it will be solved and they'll sell no more of their lurid stories about it, or is it fear of being sued, or do they perhaps believe their own tripe?

I wait patiently for Goncalo Amaral to put a squib up the lot of them!

Lovely day here today and hot weather expected for a while - hallelujah!

With regard to The Pinky team and the blamange they dish out to their UK McMedia/McPress imo they make it up as they go along. Imo what they are doing regarding Hewlitt is detracting from the real victims of whatever it is he has done. They are giving a paedo his 15 mins of fame and he could possibly make money from all of this. The only people I feel sorry for are the people he has caused harm having to see his face in the Media. It is also disrespectful to the child they claim was abducted. Oops silly me when has this ever been about her?

Hello Hope,

And while they are calling Portugal a paedo haven, they should remember that the majority of those there are said to be British! That says a lot for our legal system which lets them go on holiday to Portugal without a by your leave!! They should be shut up and never allowed back into the community.

The law is not only an ass but also blind to the need to protect children, who should always be protected and allowed to play in parks and go to school without fear of these foul monsters!

3 - Buy a house with a small backyard.

4 - Always have the same number of kids on arrival and on departure.

5 - In case you hire a PR forbid him to wear pink.

6 - If you tell your PR to lie, make sure he does it well.

7 - Don't go see the Pope. It's not original anymore.

8 - Don't get Obama involved in your problems.

9 - Get rid of all your friends who have visions and who change what they say every five minutes.

10 - When on vacation keep doing what you have done until now: come back with more kids. Not less.

If you do this, everything will be fine. :-)

They publish this book and think they are untouchable! Hypocrites! What are you going to lose poops? Not just money I think. Imo your anonymity! That will be interesting. GA and TB have put their names to their books that is what authors do. Also imo if it is exposed the PH-H Blog and Book are remotely linked to the McC's then I hope the contents of the Blog are printed in the papers around Europe. Also the R/Pops posts from all his/her (or maybe that should be his, his and her) blogging on the internet forums should also be printed in the papers around Europe to show the public how nasty and vicious they are. What are the chances of the UK papers printing it? Imo the Book was not a good idea however I am glad you have written and published it. I look forward to reading it for free whilst I shop. Interesting times ahead! Pinky will have to spin so fast he might just disappear up his own H-H, well at least that might get rid of him and his predictable poopaganda!

Hi Claudia,

My grandson has suffered from allergic rhinitis since he was very young and is never without his antihistamine sprays - how people carry on working with the problem I don't know. Lots of pollen around at the moment making hay fever sufferers feel very miserable.

I sneeze a lot, but that happens to everyone. I do cough a lot when visiting London though and it can get very unpleasant, and it's due to the plane trees that are everywhere in that city. It's such a shame because I love London.

Not much news on the Madeleine front right now, apart from some idiotic fish and chip wrap excuse for a newspaper going on about another suspect who was seen in PdeL around the time the tapas lot were all there - taking photos would you believe?

They are obviously getting desperate for news!

Off to a barbecue so see you all tomorrow! Have a nice evening everyone.

I have suffered from it since I was around 13 or 14. But it's not severe and I refuse to take medication. I only take medication when I really, really, really need it. When I had a bronchopneumonia I had no choice, of course, but apart from that I only took a couple of pain killers when I broke my arm and the pill.
I cracked up when I read that. People with cameras in PdL! ROTFLMAO! I bet thre are dozens of suspects there at this moment, taking pictures like there was no tomorrow, the perverts! LOL

Claudia I have no intention of buying it either however I will read it for free if I ever see it on a shelf when I am buying my groceries. I think the mistake I made when I looked the past two times is I looked where one would buy books. Next time I will look where the toliet rolls are on display and have a rummage around there! I might be in the supermarket for longer than I usually am but if that is what it takes to read it that is what I will do. The only way I would buy one is if I was asked to because it was the only way a certain interested party could get it!

Hi all,

Have just watched a Ch4 documentary (yes another one of them!) on "Trophy Kids".

I cannot believe what they put them through, but this quote really takes the biscuit:

"I don't let my son play outside, he might get run over, he's far too valuable for that, one day he'll be worth a lot of money."

This came from a father who's son is a golfer. I think he missed the point. Aren't ALL kids too valuable to get run over? He is either a sandwich short of a picnic or he really does see his son as a commodity. I'm hoping it's the picnic one!!

Hi everyone -

Dylan - amazing that a father would say something like that! He is obviously has the same lack of calibre as shown by Gerry McCann who immediately looked at how much he could make by setting up a Fund and exposing all to the media after Maddie disappeared.

I went to talk to the priest because of baby Sara's Christening. Had to do it because I'll be the Godmother. I'm not a great marriage fan. And even if I was, I wouldn't go for a religious ceremony.
I have nothing aginst people who do it, of course. It's just not the thing for me. I don't like ceremonies in general and I think a piece of paper doesn't define love. (And, of course, breakups are easier and you save money because you don't need a lawyer! LOL).

Hi Claudia - thank goodness for that and very wise! We don't want the patter of tiny feet (other than your God-daughter's) running over the blog!

I know that dentists are marvellous these days with all the modern technology and you don't normally feel a thing. I have never really suffered anything but nerves - it's just the thought that they might somehow slip with their instruments or something. They rarely do of course!

How did people cope many years ago when the dentist or the local barber, gave you a swig of whiskey and pulled out the offending tooth after lots of pulling and tugging -ouch!!

Anonymous said...

Cláudia,

Best wishes for the Christening.

Re the dentist, I haven't had an anaesthetic since one useless dentist squirted it down my throat instead of into my gum (must have been Bark!) and gave me a complex about it. Since then, I've had root canal without and it honestly wasn't that bad. The only time I'd have one now is if they had to pull a tooth. Even I would squirm at that!

Goodnight folks, off up the wooden hill.

Never pulled a tooth (and I hope I won't have to soon) but can't see doing it without an anaesthetic! :-)
Sleep well.

Hi Claudia and Dylan -

Root canal treatment! I think you are both very brave having dental surgery without having everything completely deadened, although I can understand it after what you experienced Dylan.

I have a friend who asks for an injection merely to have a check up - LOL!

I am happy to say that in spite of my advancing years, I still have my own, so that must have been good genes passed on and my two grown up children, and their children, have perfect gnashers too, thankfully! I did start them off at an early age though, which is important.

I hope the Christening goes off well Claudia. I am not religious but I always enjoy Christenings for some reason.

Lovely day today, so lots of walking in store methinks or maybe a picnic.

Good morning all!

Cláudia, that's exactly why I don't like anaesthetics. I didn't mind the numness too much until it went down my throat (the whole lot of it) and made it numb. I panicked!

Some good news (hopefully), from Joana's site and on the 3as too:

"The former PJ inspector will file a complaint with DIAP [Departamento de Investigação e Acção Penal - Penal Investigation and Action Department] against the McCann couple, over defamation, requesting the audition of new witnesses, in an attempt to reopen the process."

Good luck to him :-)))

Hi, Nancy.
I had an anaesthetic for the root canal treatment. But that was it. If I ever have to pull a tooth, then I think I will also ask for one agin. Can't imagine doing it withou being numb!
I'm not a cermony fan at all. But this one will be specal, of course.
Enjoy the lovely weather.

Hi, Dylan.
It must have been horrible. But unlikely to happen again .
Going to put up a new thread about it. :-)
Have a great day.

Good luck to GA in his efforts to reopen the process.

In my opinion, if the McCanns and their tapas friends are all innocent of any involvement in Maddie's disappearance they should welcome the chance to clear their names.

I know that GA said that when Gerry McCann was in Portugal in February last, he met up with his lawyers and a top PSD politician - suggesting that pressure was put on the PSD not to let Amaral be the PSD candidate for the Mayor of Olhao - not sure if that's the correct spelling.

I wish him the best of luck in his attempt to reopen the case, but I won't hold my breath knowing how things invariably seem to go the way the McCanns and their lawyers want.

Hottest day of the year so far in the UK, and the parks and coastal areas are full of people in their bikinis and shorts.

Howwever, knowing good old Blighty like we do, we could be back to high boots and long coats by next week!

Talk about a wardrobe for all seasons!
