Will Diego Garcia Ever Be Retuned To Its People

Diego Garcia

Diego Garcia is the largest island in the Chagos Archipelago region which lies in the Indian ocean and is halfway between Indonesia and Africa.

The island currently houses a vast US military base, the Chagos Islands population was expelled in the late 1960's, after the USA had leased them from the UK. It is due to expire in 2016.

The inhabitants always believed they would be able to return to their homes. Now it seems the lease will be extended by a further 20 years.(to be agreed by December 2014).

It seems Diego Garcia may never be retuned to its people.

What Will Happen To Your Money If The Euro Fails

Euro Money

It maybe not if the euro fails, but when the euro fails.The euro seems to be doomed in many peoples eyes and if you have your investments or money tied to the euro you will want to know what will happen to your cash.

The European Union is fighting hard to save the euro, but can we really believe that no country will pullout of the euro.

Greece looks likely that if any country drops the euro , they will be the first to revert back to their original currency, the drachma.

The Euro and Your Money

No matter how many bail outs we have, and the optimistic and upbeat news we are fed from the media, we are surely just witnessing a currency in decline......

Why There Will Never Be A Full Enquiry Into The Banking Scandals

Do We Need An Enquiry Into The Banking Scandals

As yet another banking scandal hits the headlines , the manipulation of interest rates which has caused more misery for the average citizen and leading to an even greater mistrust of the banking system today.

What the people who have placed their trust in banks need to know is are they going to be protected from the rogues with a full enquiry into the banking scandals.There is a distinct reluctance from the British Government to hold a full enquiry into the bankers deception.


"Where there is power there is corruption; where there is absolute power there is absolute corruption."

Do Germany Want To Take Over Europe?

Europe Takeover

Germany it seems are the leaders of Europe,they are dictating to the struggling Spain and Greece as they attempt to overcome their Euro woes as they and other Euro members continue the bail out.

Are Germany plotting to take over Europe or have they always intended to take over the sovereign Nations and gain fiscal control over the member states of the European Union.

European Single State

Brussels, the seemingly quiet Belgian city is the bona fide base of the EU. Here the zealots that are intent on creating a single state to rule over are having their task made easier, as the euro crisis grips the weaker countries tightening the screw on their weak economies........

Buying and Selling Hitler-The Nazi Collectibles

free content

German Fuhrer

Adolph Hitler may have departed this world, but due to the part he played in world history his presence on this earth will never be forgotten.Hitler is still written about in many books, and still visible in many war documentaries.

A quick search on ebay reveals to me there are over 12,000 items for sale related to the searchHitler.However this does not include any of Hitlers personal artefacts such as his cigarette case,personalised cutlery, spectacles and a Youth badge encrusted with diamonds.

The above items were withdrawn from a German auction house sale in October 2011 following severe objections from The European Jewish Congress led by president Moshe Kantor; stating that glorifying such items from this dark and sinister era would corrupt young Germans and Europeans about the Holocaust.

The Rotten Fruit ?-Is Fruit Sugar Bad For Your Health

The Rotten Fruit ?

In the United States the recent concen over the use of fructose corn syrup has led  to it being  branded as the devils candy- and many  irate parents are declaring they don’t want their children eating corn syrup in their food.

Here in Britain, the Food Standards Agency  do not regard fructose corn syrup as an additive and is classed as thick sugar, not widely used and not a danger to your health.A quick look in my local supermarket and I find it is used in many brands of cakes ,biscuits, yoghurts,ice-cream and many energy drinks.

Corn Syrup is a natural healthy sweetening product and derived directly from fruit. it is added to many processed foods we buy, but now food experts believe fructose is linked to cancer,dementia, heart disease,diabetes and kidney damage.

Stay Sharp - How To Sharpen A Knife

There are many ways to sharpen a knife. The traditional honing steel is the easy way to keep your knives sharp,here is an easy step by step guide to sharpening your knives.

Keeping A Sharp Knife

Whilst  recently carving my latest roast joint of beef,I realized I was making a hash of it again.The reason being the knife I was using was not a sharp as it should be.The solution I always used to use was simply to go out and by a new knife, rather than sharpen the knife.

Well apparently I have now been informed you should be sharpening your knives every time you come to use them.So what is the best way to sharpen a knife.

Honing Steel

A stone is probably the best  for grinding a well used knife,but for home use a honing steel is a perfectly good method.A honing steel is basically a rod of hardened steel,and ingrained with tungsten or diamond grit, they will last a long time.After cleaning  in soapy water, they should be dried thoroughly.

My earliest memory of a honing steel is of my father sharpening the carving knife using a criss cross technique.Here is a chefs routine for sharpening a knife.

How To Sharpen A Knife

  • Firstly lay a damp cloth on your work surface or chopping board keep a small amount of pressure on the handle of the knife sharpener,but don't press down too hard.The cloth will stop it from slipping.
  • Pick up your knife in the other hand and firstly place the heel of the knife(the thickest end)of the blade nearest the handle end of the sharpener, with the blade at a 15-20 degree angle to the rough sharpening surface of the steel.
  • Pull the knife towards you running the blade of the knife down the honing steel.This should be completed in a swift movement,so as the tip of the knife finishes at the tip of the sharpener.
    knife sharpening
  • You should proceed with these sweeping movements,alternating on each side of the knife blade until you consider the knife to be sharp enough.
  • Next is quite an important part that some people forget:make sure you wipe the blade of the knife to remove any metal filings that mat have accumulated.
  • Now you can test how sharp your knife is by testing it on a root vegetable such as a carrot.Now you should have a knife sharp enough for any job in the kitchen.
