This is happening all over Australia. Nothing to do with climate change. No action by our governments required.
No kidding Sherlock. You think we haven't noticed?
I could not possibly endorse drowning The Trumpet, but if a terrible accident was to happen.........
I had to read this quite closely. I expect it will be a bit hard for a non English speaker to understand. It was hard for me to understand but it is quite clever.
Pedestrians are left out of this equation. Where do they fit? It is a good cartoon, and so true.
It used to be British American Tobacco, British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell who were the behemoths. Perhaps they still are but Nestle is certainly up there.
This one is quite remarkable. Melbourne's trams, country trains, buses and suburban trains.
Looks awfully like a picture of a tram to me. The battle goes on and the futility of calling trams light rail vehicles has pretty well been confirmed, as even those in authority are starting to use the word tram. I've heard light rail vehicle was invented by spin doctors, not wanting their modern vehicles to be associated with rattly old trams.
This one is a photo by Jackie in Toronto and I hope she doesn't mind me using it. I've seen similar in Australia but not the last line, which made me really laugh.
Untimely Fathers Day gif. I love how so many fathers are now so openly loving with their children.
I don't know where this came from but isn't it sweet. Grace or Gattina may translate, but I don't really think any translation is really required.
Has Boris done the impossible? A few days will tell, but I think he may have. Now, I really have no view on the merits of stay or leave. It is complicated. I was very surprised that long term English resident Friko, the widow of an Englishman, has had to sort her status out.
My stepmother gave me a reasonable explanation as to why my late father seemed so unaccepting of me as being gay, yet he really liked R as my partner. My father could simply not understand the sexual attraction of one male to another and felt repulsed by the thought. Fake news? Straight men now seem to understand what gay men are about and accept them as different, and while it is not their thing, they don't mind if it is a gay man's thing to like blokes in that ever so special way. So, this would not have been my father, and thank goodness as he would have embarrassed the bejesus out of me. Airport outing, I am not wanting, thanks.
