Have you ever been a participant in a parade? What did you do?
I attended the funeral of Blair Peach in 1979 along with 10,000 other people.
For those that don’t know he was a teacher from New Zealand who lived in London & taught special needs children.
He was a campaigner against racism & while attending an Anti-Nazi League rally in Southall, was killed by police.
Regardless of countless witnesses & a huge cache of illegal weapons being discovered in the possession of the police, plus a barrage of lies & refusals of cooperation from them, no one has ever been charged with his murder.
In a report released in 2010 it clearly states that the investigators identified an officer as the one “…who almost certainly killed Peach.”
If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
I would most definitely go to the Opera, because I love live performances of all kinds.
If it was a story I was unfamiliar with I would first make sure I had a general outline to guide me through all the unintelligible caterwauling.
I’d quite like to go for a meal & a drink afterwards, as well, if anyone’s offering.
Why did you start your blog?
I’m an artist, photographer & writer & I wanted an online presence, in order to share my stuff.
To achieve that I realized I would need to create an online identity of some kind.
So I created Khana’s Web.
What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
Celebrating the Summer & Winter Solstices with my family.
Whether in London or Haifa it usually involves a barbecue, music & booze.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Grateful for …
The loan of a car from my husband’s brother.
We had the car for over a week & we managed to get to some great places.
Yesterday was our last day with wheels & we went north with the kids.
We hiked up to the top of a ravine & climbed down to swim under a waterfall in the pool below.
It was fantastic.
Looking forward to …
Flying to London next Tuesday & seeing my kids & grand-kids.

I sure enjoyed reading your answers this week. The answer to the parade question was interesting. Hate crimes are so very vicious and cruel.
Maybe one day I will figure out how to do videos…digeridoo that is. 🙂
Thanks Cee & yes they are. I know it wasn’t exactly the kind of parade you had in mind, but we marched 10,000 strong for what seemed like hours, although I’m sure it wasn’t, so I thought I’d include it 🙂
I like your “love live performances of all kinds” followed up with “unintelligible caterwauling” 🙂
Ha ha, I couldn’t resist that one lol 🙂
wow, thanks for sharing the information about Blair Peach. I hadn’t heard it before, and it is just sad that he died under those circumstances especially.
Hi Sheena, yes very sad indeed. They were dark times for Britain.A lot of police corruption & institutional racism was exposed.
