Strictly For The Birds

Odd what you think about when you walk a dog. Image is from Elland C.C. website. I've asked them and they don't mind.

Another Day

I think I'd be less worried if it were me. Although 'no evidence of disease' was declared two years ago. The clinical trial isn't over until 5 years after the last person finishes the course of treatment. So it's crossed fingers and worry-worting everytime a 3-monthly check requires just a few more tests. Everything was OK, though. Another bullet dodged.

A Street Called Hoffnung

An old one. I thought I'd posted it here, but couldn't find it. Image is free to use in acc. with CC4.0-SA It shows the Stasi Museum.

Struthio

Not the name of a minor Shakespearean character, but the genus Linnaeus first applied to ostriches, which once upon a time was applied to the Emu and later not. Escaped common ostriches in Australia have established feral populations. Image from pixhere.com and doctored by me.

Anyway. I love this...

Thank you

 for being such a good egg, in spite of the grim business you're dealing with. My mum, who nursed my Dad through a long drawn out dementia decline, is now difficult, inclined to see slights where none are intended. My sister bears the entire...

stuff. How marvellous that Spartak Moscow is quite a villainous chap, as back in the bad old days their football team was full of soldiers who were quite villainous themselves.

I do like the bold type for certain things that would have...

humour is the only antidote to extremism... Where are the satirists? They should be firing broadsides port and starboard, the answer to the rise of the right is most definitely not a jump to the left, despite what Frank'N'Furter says.
