It seems the dry spell that hit most of the Libyan bloggers is coming to an end, thank Allah, although I still feel it is staying a bit longer with me!
Recently I have been so wrapped up in personal stuff that I just could not find the energy or the will to update, now that Ramadan is upon us I am hoping that all of us will find a new lease with many interesting stories to tell, just like last Ramadan, another blog that will definitely be very popular this Ramadan is Our Favourite Recipe Centre, I remember last Ramadan when I was at work and feeling a bit hungry, I would check it out and drool all over the food pictures :o)
The Libyan community in London has hired the Pakistani Community Centre in Willesden for the nightly Taraweeh prayers as has become customary every year, they usually have an Iftar there twice a week as well.
The main news in the UK at the moment is the naming of the parents of Madeleine McCann as formal suspects (ARGUIDO/ARGUIDA) by the Portuguese police (I have written about this case Here) although this does not mean that they are guilty just yet but apparently the police have found a trace of the little girl's blood and DNA in a car that was hired by the parents 25 days after the girl vanished, I have always felt that the way the parents handled this case was a bit fishy and that there is more to them than what we already know.
The other main story today is the death last night of the founder of The Body Shop , Anita Roddick died of a brain hemorrhage, I remember many years ago when I was studying in Oxford how she suddenly became world famous after taking a bank loan of £2000, Anita got recipes for beauty products from Arab Bedouins and native Asians and South Americans, she marketed her products as Eco friendly and not tested on animals, her shops started to open all over the world (is there a Body Shop in Libya?) when she eventually sold her shop chain and made well over a £100 million, she gave about £30 million to charities to help the poor all over the world, she was a woman that Britain will always be proud of.
Finally I'm not sure if it is going to be Ramadan here tomorrow although I think Libya already decided it is. so Ramadan Mubarak to all of you and to Muslims all over the world.
