I wrote somewhere about how…… Continue reading Eight weeks and still counting
I was watching MSNBC news this morning, obviously it was all about Covid 19 in the USA, the horrendous crisis there resulting from poor leadership, bad decisions, lies, and ignorance all coming from the dumbass dictator in the Whitehouse. The economy is more important to him than peoples lives, he wants everyone back at work,…… Continue reading Covid 19 Confusion

The sequel to any movie is invariably naff compared to the original. There are a few exceptions, but I can´t think of one.
