Work, work, work: I’m at various client sites almost every day this week. Busy, busy. It means that normal household stuff is getting ignored, and I’m spending way too much time traveling. Here’s what I have decided:
|Driving||You can control your time of departure and your route, stop along the way as needed, blast your own music, make phone calls without annoying other people, or just enjoy peace and quiet. You also don’t have to sit next to any hygiene-challenged people.||Traffic, stress, and dangerous drivers.|
|Trains||You can shluff, stretch your legs, read a book.||Loud people. Crowds. The rudest passengers in the world who block the doors when you are trying to exit (Hof haCarmel is the worst!).|
Holiday alert! Watch out for Santas running amok in New Zealand. Hat tip to Central LS.
Open mouth, insert foot: This time it is Will Smith who comes up with an astonishingly stupid comment. Hat tip to Northern LS.
Arab Christians pay the price: Ever since the PA has taken over Bethlehem and Nazareth, more and more Christians have been driven out by Moslem violence. In fact, Christian Arabs enjoyed more protection and security under Israeli law than under PA law. Yet recently, some churches internationally have been blaming Israel for the demographic shift! Aaron Klein has the story.
Further proof that the UK is not yet ready for the EU: They believe in UFOs.
