We used to have a website that showed a number of pretty hilarious cartoons scanned from the pages of Punch magazine. This site has now closed, but we have kept an archive, here:
Gentle Giant’s Ray Shulman dead at 73.
I love Gentle Giant live and find their musicianship extraordinary, but their albums can be difficult.
Ryuichi Sakamoto, Japanese electronic music maestro, dies.
According to some reports, there is a large minority of people in the UK who have said that, given the chance for a vaccination, they would decline. Just how selfish can you get?
I know people who have said they will not have it. Why?
The “it’s only like bad flu/it’s a hoax” opinion is still very common, despite the number of cases and deaths. As, indeed, is the “Bill Gates wants to tag us all so he can control us” idea.
One person I know is not having it because a friend of hers knows someone who has seen a website that says it could be dangerous.
A neighbour says she has heard that it has been tested on people and that they could have become ill, so that’s a reason for not having it.
I’m still trying to understand this.
At least the Pope says it is ok to have the vaccine.
As I write this, D Trump, the so-called president of the USA, is finally giving some indication he is ready to leave the White House. Not admit defeat, of course, oh no, but at least go.
The probability is he will resign early, have the Pence man pardon him and his family from all crimes past, present and future and will just go off to make the same old wild claims and announce he is running again in 2024.
While Trump did get a record numer of votes, his opponent got very many more, millions more. For Trump it was a humiliating defeat. His lackeys will be telling him he won, but the lackeys are mostly nuts, especially Giuliani and the Sidney Powell woman.
The Trump lawsuits have been dismissed as without merit and wasting court time. He and his team should be punished for bringing the democratic process into disrepute.
We can but hope that Trump and his pals get their just desserts.
