Commenting on politics in a blog nowadays is quite hard for no sooner have you've formed a theses with a set of facts, things have moved on leaving you looking kinda bemused. For while you might project a scenario, some off the wall strawman thought experiment, you never actually think it'll come to pass. But it comes, and worse. Who'd have thought the US president would close out the US's European allies.

I have my exhibition coming up on Saturday for two weeks. So I've been quite bust making the frames and getting the printing done.

Jessy seems weak in her hind legs and I'm not sure if it's something out of the way or just a slight drag of a muscle. She was running like a mad thing after a midget greyhound who had the wherewithal to exhaust her.

I don't know what to say about this, and then I more than know.

Scum targeted a show designed to entertain, and one packed with tweens. It takes a particularly callous mind to dream up and walk into a venue packed with kids and release a device filled with nails.

Prices I reeeeeally like

Since I wear a hat on the walks with the dog and have a beard for a few years now I'm pretty covered on the UV side of things. But I noticed last year I was getting very damaged lips, then it dawned it was a sort of sun burn. I was blaming the wind, but why on earth would I not get damaged lips in winter when I've been up in force 9 where I couldn't walk upright to summit the cairn and nary a chap to a lip.
The price was a real bonus.

German progress, of sorts

I have finished the course some time ago and am now improving fluency. But it seems I'm stuck to some extent. Yes, I still think this is one of the better ways to learn a language to get yourself ready to visit a place. It's not so good at the usual didactic formation for the written word for you never get enough of a sampling to provide the wherewithal to sustain.

The 250 on the top bar is the number of consecutive days. The 842 are credits for weeks and levels. 10 credits per week and level. The 48% in the shield is the fluency meter. Now it must be said the program adds new words so I've 2452 words of German, where I had 2430 in the post a month ago. Not many you could say, but they are in context and you barely know they are going in.
