RE: Babies And Children

I love kids. They are a gift to us and should be cherished. Children are free spirits, and as such can be very endearing.

The nappy changing I can do without though. j/k.

RE: Israel In The Eurovision Song Contest?

Isreal pay into the broadcasting rights. Even Morocco took part once, because they payed. Luxembourg (a European state, even a winner in the past) do not pay their dues anymore, so they are not included. Monaco is another example. It's all financial and the voting is too political for my liking.
