JFK at the White House
John F. Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th President at noon on January 20, 1961. In his inaugural address he spoke of the need for all Americans to be active citizens, famously saying, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." He also asked the nations of the world to join together to fight what he called the "common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself." In closing, he expanded on his desire for greater internationalism: "Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you
On November 22, 1963, when he was hardly past his first thousand days in office, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was killed by an assassin's bullets as his motorcade wound through Dallas, Texas. Kennedy was the youngest man elected President; he was the youngest to die. President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on November 22, 1963, while on a political trip to Texas. He was shot twice in the neck and head, and was pronounced dead at 1:00 p.m. Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested at a movie theater at about 1:50 p.m. He denied shooting anyone, claiming he was a patsy, and was killed by Jack Ruby on November 24, before he could be indicted or tried.
This picture was taken minutes before he was assasinated
"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country"

Ronaldo penalty in the 33rd
A penalty scored by Ronaldo in the 33rd and a beautifully placed shot by Giggs in the 80th sealed the 17th title for the Devils. It is the 10th title under the eyes and leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson and the 17th for the Manchester United Football Club. Giggsy marked his record-equalling 758th appearance for the Devils in style by taking the throughball from Rooney on his stride before slotting it home.
It was a cruncher I say, because throughout the game, the home team controlled possession for long periods and enjoyed the majority of chances. Heskey, Koumas and M. Bent all failed to convert the half chances they had. It was huge relief when Ronaldo converted the penalty when Rooney was brought down in the box. However, it was a something else when Giggsy did it in the 80th. I was practically jumping and screaming in Bulldog. Of course, we had a legion of fans present - Kash, Surin Sir, Ross (who will be in Moscow to watch the Devils take on the Blues in the UEFA Final) and of course our dear Alison.
No one else deserves to lift it up more than the MAN himself - Superb play Giggsy
Congratulations my dear Red Devils and lets keep the flag flying high as we approach the UEFA Champions League Final match in Moscow against the Blues.
I will end this post with a few messages that were sent before and after the game. Some of which are totally original and brilliant:-

The coat color of a GR can range from a light cream color, into the yellows, or even into darker golden or copper shades.
Shedding: Moderate Shed
Male Height:23-24 inches
Male Weight:65-75 pounds
Female Height:21.5-22.5 inches
Female Weight:55-65 pounds
The GR does well in different living situations as long as their family takes the time to make sure they are well exercised. While a large fenced yard or a secure area that provides room to run and play is ideal, a GR can also thrive in an apartment environment. In this situation, it is important to check with local parks and public areas to determine what their rules are in regards to dogs and other pets, and see what would be most suitable for taking your dog to for play and exercise time.
Hip Dysplasia is a skeletal issue that leads to extreme discomfort, swelling, arthritis and even lameness. The high demand for this breed has often led to poor and unhealthy
Recent studies and surveys have indicated that cancer is rapidly becoming the most common cause of death for GRs, the most common types being hemangiosarcoma and Lymphosarcoma. While genetic factors also play a role in cancer illnesses in GRs, environmental causes are also a big cause of different cancers.It is imperative that you find a trustworthy vet in your area and be active in the health care of your dog. Keep up on the immunizations that are recommended, as well as any shots that are required by your community. Establish a strong relationship with your vet and good communication skills, and talk about changes that you can make in regards to care, lifestyle and diet that can help your dog live a long and happy life. Be informed as to warning signs of illness, as well as what steps you should take in case of an emergency with your GR.
