Sadly it can and is but what worries me is it will only be 2016 for what
will seem like a couple of weeks.
Tempus fugit.

Soon be Christmas.

When a woman is saying I would be ready in 5 minutes take off you shoes grab a bier and switch on the TV.

Congratulation on the new grandson.

What's an L1 visa, [email protected]? What happens if you can't get it?

Ah ... got it. Just looked it up. Is it the company's responsibility or yours to submit the application?

Easter eggs for sale in the local supermarket today.

Tomorrow we are to be told how many billions of dollars the NZ public spent on Christmas Eve, conspicuous consumption must be maintained.

Eggs and Bacon for breakfast.
Large mugs of tea.
This equates to contentment.

All the contacts have been scraped for the umpteenth time.
It works again: re-fettle I say.
Chuck out and replace, no.

Good morning.
Looking at the weather radar we are about to start a day long episode
of heavy rain.

I think I'm back in synchronisation with the days again. I completely
lost it over Christmas.
Today is Sunday.

... which reminds me of Tsingtao. One had a Tsingtao beer last week, at one of one's favourite Chinese restaurants.
One of probably only a few good things the Germans brought to that neck of the woods.

Re the self-styled assassination attempt on the Vainglorious Leader
This sort of incompetence is unacceptable.

Back in the day, Britain was Great and did Great things! The de Havilland Comet only broke apart mid flight three times; the Morris Minor and the MGB would start first time after a week of warm, dry weather; the ZX81 would run 1k software as long as you typed it in rather than tried loading it from a tape recorder; and good quality tweed only smelled of piss on really, really hot days in the House of Lords.

Now, we can't even find people with the technical ability to kill a drunken millionaire.

I blame the teachers. No, not me. I was a very good teacher. I blame all the other teachers.
Or is it somethimg much less sinister ?Recall Details for VOLVO CAR - V60, V70, XC70, S80, XC90

Seventy years ago today Lord Haw Haw, (William Joyce), was executed by hanging for the crime of high treason.

If he was around today, the BBC would probably give him a contract.

No th'art wrong, he was a right wing extremist, the BBC are all left wing extremists. He'd be writing a column in the Daily Mail.

Tis dark out there but the weather report tells me that it is partly cloudy,
+5C with not a lot of wind.

Good morning all.

On this day in 1957a dissatisfied plastic surgeon's patient was sentenced in London to ten years’ imprisonment, after he had threatened his surgeon with a gun, complaining that his nose was too short.
