For a change come into my garden, the Agapanthus, also called Lily of the Nile are flowering now. The garden is fragrant with the blossoms of the Rollinia fruit tree. Yesterday a soft rain has brought out colours, scent and dancing butterflies. It is always a place of peace and tranquility, the mournful call of the rain bird makes it more so.

Impressions of a beautiful flower..

Mirror, mirror on the wall... Botox;

What is the last thing you would want to inject into your face? You have heard of Botox, no doubt, and “deadliest poison” is it’s main claim to fame. 
Botox uses botulinum toxin, produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, and it is so deadly, an amount equal to a grain of salt is enough to kill a 200 lb man. In fact, they even suggest that it would only take 4kg, properly dispersed, to kill every last person on earth. Maybe those crows feet around your eyes should be looked at as  beautiful!

Delenda est; next please;

Carthago delenda est; a sad satire;

Cato the Elder (234-149 BC),a persistent advocate in the Senate for the total destruction of Carthage, and associated with the phrase Delenda est Carthago.

"Ceterum censeo Carthaginem delendam esse" or "Ceterum autem censeo Carthaginem delendam esse: "Furthermore, I consider that Carthage must be destroyed" abbreviated to "Centerum censeo", "Carthago delenda est", or "Delenda est Carthago; "Carthage must be destroyed" is a Latin oratorical phrase which was  popular in the Roman Republic in the 2nd Century BC during the latter years of the Punic Wars against Carthage. Carthage, which had been defeated twice before and had a tendency after each defeat to rapidly rebuild its strength and engage in further warfare. It represented a policy of the extirpation of the enemies of Rome who engaged in aggression, and the rejection of the peace treaty as a means of ending conflict. The Roman senator Cato the Elder 234-149 BC was famous to end his speeches with the words Carthago delenda est. 

How far have we progressed?  I am afraid not very far;
This slogan is still accurate and well used;
 per example

Irak  delenda est;
Afghanistan delenda est; 
Libya delenda est;
Syria delenda est;
next please...what about Iran? OK Iran delenda

nearly forgot tiny Gaza delenda est..

Who knows what is cooking and brewing in the kitchens of big business, big banking and  corrupt governments.
