We have friends/ex-neighbours arriving for coffee in half an hour and then we are out to lunch so there may be a pause, or three, but fear not - "I shall return".
Poor old 'Rupe': He put in a 'yuuuuuuuuuuge' bid for the Sky TV network but some other rascal bid higher. What can one say, except 'ohdearwhatapitynevermind'! Mind you, I am a bit worried because I default to following Sky News because of my deep loathing of the BBC. Not that Sky News doesn't have its faults but A.B.T.T.B.B.C. - anything's better than the BBC!
We shall see what we shall see! 'St. Theresa', as befits a vicar's daughter, has promised to continue total protection for EU ex-pats living in Britain. Now we must wait and see how the EU 'apparatchiks' treat British ex-pats living 'just over there'. I wouldn't bet the deeds of my house on the outcome!
They do things differently 'over there': As this cartoon from The American Thinker makes clear:
The stench is becoming unbearable: I refer, of course, to this disgusting, malignant and dangerous stunt unleashed by the (non)Democratic party against Judge Kavanaugh. I'm not a 'kiddie-winkie' so I know that politics can be a dirty business but this farrago has plumbed new depths. Yes, the Republicans delayed Obama's choice for the SCOTUS so that he ran out of time but they did so using nit-picking procedural ploys all of which were in the rule book. What they did not do is take a filthy accusation against a man without a shred of evidence, sit on it for weeks and then suddenly release it just before his confirmation hearing. Yes, they might well stop him in his tracks but they will also utterly destroy an honourable man's reputation forever. If any American is prepared to vote for the Dems in November they need to wear rubber gloves!
