What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

What do you think about beauty pageants?

I was watching something on television last night about a beauty pageant, and it was about children. I felt sorry for some of them as they didn't really want to do it, but their parents made them.

Do you think that in this day and age, beauty pageants are ethical, because they are just about what you look like?

Or do you think we should be trying to celebrate other things?

    Whether it is children or adults @GemmaRowlands I really do not like them at all. I don't like dog shows for that matter either.

    I don't like dog shows either, as the dogs get literally no say about whether they take part or not.

    I once went to a cat show. It was quite a curious experience, especially as soon after I saw a wonderful BBC drama about a cat show. It was remarkably accurate. I laughed all the way through.

    I imagine a cat show would be more difficult than a dog show though, as nobody can make a cat do anything it doesn't want to do!

    You'd be surprised how compliant they can be @GemmaRowlands. It's a bit like going to the vet. Suddenly they become very submissive and not at all their usual selves.
