Albert Finney, star of stage and screen and one of the great British actors of his generation, has died at the age of 82. RIP.

If you want to see how hot out of the gate he came into the world of movies, I highly recommend you check out Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960).

Here is Dr Philippa Whitford ‏MP questioning the government on the "serious shortage protocol":

UK government attempted to sneak legislation through that would allow pharmacists to change prescriptions *without* consulting GPs, in times of shortage (e.g. due to Brexit).

I suggest you postpone any illnesses until after , it'll be safer.

Looks like France is going head on with embracing fascism:

Covering your face during a riot would cost 15.000 and/or prison and there will be a police-vetted list of people who are not allowed to protest.

Looking forward to lunch today (as always).

It is going to be Courgetti carbonara. Yum!


loves playing games. Here he is advising me that I should go for a "Volles Haus" and not a "2 Paar" (Kniffel).

Now I forget who i was talking to about corvids :-( They are crazy smart. Check out this experiment a crow takes 8 steps to solve a puzzle.
One day I tossed some salted peanuts to some crows. They took them to a puddle to wash them off.
I started buying unsalted peanuts just for the crows.
Pretty soon they knew my car.

EU President, Donald Tusk, being criticised (in the UK) for this statement:

"I have been wondering what the special place in hell looks like for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it safely."

I don't see the problem. Hit the nail on the head. The truth hurts.

Interesting points on secret UK plans to monitor cross border traffic from/to N. Ireland & the Republic. Effectively the UK conducting mass surveillance on a foreign state (i.e. Ireland).

I just made a post where I discuss men's fashion.

This photo detail taken from the post I boosted earlier about the Don McCullin exhibition.

Photo taken in 1958 shows how little men's fashion has changed in 61 years. You could wear one of those suits now and it wouldn't look dated.

In fact you could probably go back another 50 years and suits look pretty much the same.

Hairstyles look unchanged, too.

A good article about the career of Don McCullin.
