Yes. "A Brief History of Humankind", (466 pages), does sound a bit intimidating, but actually it's very approachable. I just got a bit sidetracked by Daphne du Maurier... :thumb

The first in the collection was "Don't Look Now", made into a film in the early 70s by Nicolas Roeg. So I moved on to "Rebecca" (1938), her classic novel, again made into a film by Hitchcock. I'...

Re: Brexit consequences

And another view, this time from the Canadian Globe and Mail. "A self-destructive madness grips the U.K. as a no-deal Brexit looms."

Re: Brexit consequences

A view from "Der Spiegel", written before yesterday's march. "Watching a Country Make a Fool of Itself." No country in the world has cultivated arrogance the way Britain has.

It IS strange! With chaggle's larger version, the central sort-of-pillar does seem to move, but pretty slowly for me.
