Approved in the US on December 26th, 2018, but in the EU, December 2015. The antivax lobby doesn't like it, not...

Re: New Years Resolutions

All respect and encouragement to those who make New Year Resolutions. I gave up on them myself several years ago, as I lack determination and persistence, and am totally unable to resist temptation. (Or unwilling?) There are things I know I should try to do, and other things I know I should try not ...

Anyone have any similar confessions to make?
As a young schoolboy, not learning German, it took me a while to discover that the poet's name was pronounced "Ger-ter", and not "Go-eth". :gmc

Blind Mystic Baba Vanga's predictions for 2019.

2019 will see Europe's economy collapse, Trump struck down by a mysterious illness that causes hearing loss and Putin survive assassination, she says. Perhaps also worth adding...... ."She died in 1996 aged 85, but has still been predicting what is in store each year." Any guess which reputable jou...

"Ex-Mass." David Rees-Williams Trio.

The jazzed-up Christmas pieces appeared on YouTube about four years ago, and I was very taken with them, but then they all disappeared. But having checked a few minutes ago, they have returned. Nothing to watch, but some beautiful arrangements. VyrXX7eKdkM The complete set is here. https://www.youtu...

"The BBC On the Edge of an Abyss."

Re: Brexit consequences

The opinions of Professor Robert Patman, Department of Politics, University of Otago, New Zealand. A couple of days old, but worth 8 minutes of your time, I'd say.

I wonder if anyone can explain, as I confess I am mystified. ETA. Doing a little search, there was also this from Soubry. (18.12.18) ...
