About things

And there's almost no coverage on the US news of the fighting in the Ukraine. Odd, isn't that? Ok, not.

(Oh, and the B-52s are old news. Nevermind.)

Not a heck of a lot in the UK either. Odd also.

I'm not sure I agree, I've heard plenty of reports on the BBC that the fighting there is hotting up.

Feisty. It's like the spirit of Robespierre possesses you.

Hahahahaha.  ;D

That's like Los An-gel-EEZ. or Los Angle-Eez.  (It's Los An-jell-us.)


Then again, I've got co-workers asking if we're moving to Glass-cow or Edin-burgh.   ;D

Eh, not from the LA so it won't matter. ;) 

Apparently one time my daughter was flying home from The 'Cow she had a Kiwi and a "Brit" (translation, Posh English Accent) captain and co-pilot. The Brit would get on the intercom and discuss travel to "Los An-gel-EEZ" and the Kiwi would come on shortly thereafter and pointedly mention it as "Los An-jell-US" rather deliberately. Apparently it went on like that for the entire flight. ;D

Ok, after having watched this... rather amazing situation... for a while now, my remaining question is -

"I see the puppet. Where is the puppet-master?"

(For all you Hellboy fans...)
