SUNDAY 13th JUNE 2010 07:30 (BST)

THIS DAY IN WW2 (13.6.40)
On the Western Front... The French forces west of Paris are now retreating to the Loire. The British decide to abandon attempts to rebuild a BEF in France and begin to evacuate the British and Canadian troops which still remain in the country.

In Washington... Roosevelt signs a new $1,300,000,000 Navy bill providing for much extra construction. Meanwhile, in response to Churchill's pleas in his telegrams to President Roosevelt, surplus stocks of artillery weapons and rifles have been assembled from US government stores. The first shipment now leaves the USA on the SS Eastern Prince for the voyage to Britain. The US Neutrality Laws have been subverted by first "selling" the arms to a steel company and then reselling them to the British government.

TODAY IN MY LIFE
Much contemplation. Re-grounding, acceptance and surrender the order of today.

TODAY'S THOUGHT
It was amateurs who perpetrated revolution, professionals who created the Titanic.

TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
An odd combination of England in the World Cup and the first Common Cold I've had for many years can combine to undermine mindfulness!

TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Having made an error, which is best, to give it extensive attention or to focus on the next challenge?

TODAY'S ONELINER
The answer is not more gun control, it's more idiot control : D

TRIVIA
A cucumber is a fruit not a vegetable, a member of the melon family, but its taste makes more suitable for savoury dishes.

TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
A will let the events of my life flow through me but only my intention will rule me.
