Two things happened today


Lots of things happened today but two things stand out. When I say ‘lots of things’ happened today, I mean, of course lots of ‘things’ happened today on the international stage. Imagine how many ‘things’ happened today. Quite a sobering and awesome thought really. However, in the world of the social norm two things stand out:

    here’.
    So far, ‘Lilo’ is lying low which is probably not a bad thing; I have manure to dig in.
