And now, the Holy Grail for Python fans -
the reunion stage show: Thousands -
some dressed as their favourite acts -

It has been 40 years since they were on our television screens--but those decades have done nothing to diminish our love of Monty Python. Last night thousands of fans--some dressed as their favourite Python characters--descended on London´s O2 Arena for the comedy act´s stage reunion. [Snip] Last night it opened with a trademark animation featuring the face of the late Python Graham Chapman and Doctor Who’s ship--dubbed the ‘retardis’--flying through space before the Pythons came on stage. One of the first classic sketches they performed was the four Yorkshiremen comparing their tough upbringing. The audience were also treated to clips from the

How about the black knight sketch. Perhaps an acquired taste (like much of British humor) but when it was good (in your mind) it was outstanding!

At my gym, the trainer has his clients doing what looks like the "silly walk" around the gym.

When he noticed me laughing, I mentioned John Cleese and Monty Python - no one had any idea what I was talking about. I hadn´t realized I was that old!

I have a few of the old films here - time to watch them ...

Giant metal fences nicknamed the "Ring of Steel", heavily armed warships and military helicopters provided a menacing backdrop as preparations got into full swing for the latest Nato conference today. The 12 mile long security fence and floating firepower have been assembled to protect world leaders as this year´s summit gets underway in Newport on Thursday. [Snip] British warship HMS Duncan sailed into Cardiff Bay today as security was beefed up on the eve of the summit. She will be joined by a fleet of international warships including a French frigate, a superfast Norwegian missile patrol boat and minesweepers.

WASHINGTON--Terrorists from Islamic State claim to have beheaded a second American journalist in two weeks, videotaping the crime and blaming the US civilian’s death personally on US President Barack Obama, who continued to authorize air strikes against the group in northern Iraq despite its warnings. [Snip] Sotloff grew up in Miami, the son of Arthur and Shirley Sotloff, and previously worked for Temple Beth Am Day School in Florida, according to the synagogue website. Sotloff worked in the past for both The Media Line and The Jerusalem Report, filing his last dispatch for the Report from Syria about a year ago,

A ´massive new batch´ of stolen credit and debit card numbers put up for sale on the black market Tuesday morning are now reportedly being traced back to Home Depot. The Atlanta-based home improvement retailer told The Associated Press Tuesday that it´s looking into ´unusual activity´ and that it´s working with both banks and law enforcement. ´Protecting our customers´ information is something we take extremely seriously, and we are aggressively gathering facts at this point while working to protect customers,´ said Paula Drake, a spokeswoman at Home Depot, declining to elaborate.

British troops could be sent to the Ukraine on a military exercise this month, a defence minister revealed today. A platoon of about 30 men may take part in an annual US-Ukraine exercise involving hundreds of troops around Lviv near the Polish border. [Snip] It is one of a series of exercises in eastern Europe designed to reassure Nato member states and to deter Russian aggression. Mr Brazier said the Allies are "ramping up" sanctions against Russia following its annexation of Crimea and its support for rebel forces in eastern Ukraine. Nato estimates Russia has sent 1,000 soldiers into Ukraine

U.S. drone strikes are believed to have killed the leader of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab, who ordered the massacre at a Kenyan shopping mall last year that killed 67 people. U.S. Intelligence officials believe Ahmed Abdi Godane was traveling in a two-car convoy Monday night near al-Shabab´s main base in Barawe when American drone aircraft hit the vehicles with missiles. Six people were killed in the attack and Somali authorities say they think Godane is among the dead--though the Pentagon said it is still awaiting confirmation. Godane, also known as Mukhtar Abu Zubeyr, is al-Shabab´s spiritual leader under whose direction the

Sotloff beheading will arouse

Barack Obama has often scorned American foreign policy that took military action for action´s sake – but the apparent beheading of a second American hostage now presents a profound test of this position. [Snip] The gaffe prompted derision from his political opponents who said the president was not judicious, as his supporters contend, but weak and indecisive. However the apparent killing of the two Americans in the most gruesome manner imaginable now plunges this issue right through the psychological defences of a war-weary middle America that has tried to keep the collapse of Iraq at arms-length. For months now, Isil has

The Daily Beast’s National Security Reporter Eli Lake argued that President Obama was the “last holdout” on taking aggressive action against ISIS on Tuesday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.” “When you have people saying that [ISIS is a threat] for a solid week after the Foley snuff film, and then you have the president say...‘we don’t have a strategy yet’...that tells me, and Josh Rogan and I reported this, the president is the last holdout here.” Lake added that Obama is alone in his own party in his reluctance to take decisive action against ISIS, citing Hillary Clinton’s call for a more

Islamic State militants have released a new decapitation video as a part of a shocking "second message" to the US. Just hours after Islamic State (IS) released sickening footage of the mass execution of 300 Syrian national army soldiers in the Syrian desert, the terror group issued a fresh warning to the US. Posted on Twitter with the hashtag "2ndAmessagetoAmeric", the grainy footage appears to show the merciless beheading of a Kurdish soldier--one of 15 believed to have been captured by IS during fighting in Iraq.

Terror group Islamic State (IS) have threatened the life of a British hostage in a chilling video which appears to show the beheading of a US journalist.

The White House said they are investigating reports the former Time, CNN and Fox News reporter has been killed.

The US military has carried out air strikes in Somalia, reportedly targeting a convoy carrying the leader of militant group al-Shabab. It is not clear if Ahmed Abdi Godane was hit in the strikes some 240km (150 miles) south of the capital, Mogadishu. An al-Shabab source told the BBC at least nine people were killed. The al-Qaeda-linked group has not commented officially on the attack. US officials say they will release further details later. The US has carried out several air strikes in recent years in Somalia where al-Shabab controls many central and southern areas. African leaders are meeting in Kenya on Tuesday to discuss

Support for the terrorist organization Hamas has skyrocketed in Judea, Samaria and Gaza according to a new poll, after Hamas "skyrocketed" Israel with a massive missile barrage and terror war in Operation Protective Edge. A full 61% of Arab residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza would pick Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh for unity government president if elections were held today, according to the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research poll reported Tuesday by Associated Press (AP).

All right, so it was only a straw poll conducted among viewers of yesterday´s BBC Sunday Morning Live debate programme: 95 percent of Britons think multiculturalism has been a failure. But as majority verdicts go, it was a pretty resounding one--and it was delivered despite the BBC´s best efforts to muddy the waters, first by wheeling out two of the nation´s Multi Culti Apologist big guns Owen Jones and Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, and second by pretending that multiculturalism means something other than what it actually means. [Snip] That´s because it means the exact opposite. It´s about separatism, not integration.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their only-son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier´s Chinook helicopter was shown down over Afghanistan. Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

Just resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
