This is basically a public service announcement. The details of how you do it are less important than actually just doing it!! I like the slogan of 3-2-1.

The Book of the Month for July is Doctor Faustus by Thomas Mann and the Track of the Month is 'Has He Got a Friend for Me ' by Richard and Linda Thompson.

The RNLI is a great charity doing excellent work. It always has done. I chipped in 25 euros (not boasting) to swell its coffers. Thumbing my nose at Nigel Farage was simply an added bonus!

Donations to RNLI rise 3,000% after Farage’s migrant criticism

I got stung for what is the first time in my life. I was #cycling along today when I suddenly felt a stinging sensation in my thigh. Looking down, I saw a #wasp (I think it was a #YellowJacket) sitting there. I hastily brushed it off my leg. The pain persisted all the way back home. I can see why some people hate these aggressive little gits. I applied some #vinegar to the spot at home which relieved the symptoms quickly.

I shouldn’t laugh, but it was so predictable, that I can’t believe people are still surprised. UK shops are going to import food from the EU, because here is no one to pick it on local farms. 🤣

BTW shelves are emptier every week. There are no jams or veggies in local Coop, there’re no local vegetables or fruit in Morrisons – just two aisles of potatoes + some imported aubergines and courgettes, Spanish garlic and onion, apples & pears from RSA…

Well done #brexshit

The reason I love mathematics. Not the calculator based skill where you do arithmetic or do some complicated calculus stuffs but on the pure mathematics side where mathematicians rigorously reason out using logic about certain structures. Their methods are damn so accurate, precise, so logical, and truthful.

This is part of this year’s harvest of #gooseberries. It’s surprising how sweet they taste despite appearances. All in all, probably close to about 600 g with more to come, which should last a while.

What a good idea it was to drop all legal restrictions last Monday. Which bunch of libertarian idiots thought that one up, I wonder?
