Happy Ukrainian Christmas! It’s HOT here – 39 degrees today, and we’ve had high temperatures most of the week.

I’ve been working my way through a good book or two, but haven’t had as much time to read as I need to finish any of them yet!

Winter Sunset

Two members of my family headed off to Europe this week, and two more are going next week. Then I’ll be off in August. I need to start thinking about that!

Some of the places I’m going next month are currently around 47 degrees every day (116.6 Fahrenheit)… I guess I’ll pack light this time.

Another week, another seven days of Trump scandals and sexism, Russia scandals, Putin’s troops continuing their slow invasions of Ukraine and Georgia, terror attacks, anniversaries of terror attacks, an Englishman being jailed for going to fight as a terrorist in Ukraine (and then arguing that you’re only a terrorist if you’re a Muslim in Syria).

What a wonderful world we currently live in.

I propose mandatory IQ and general knowledge tests before anyone is allowed to leave their house!
