Wham bam thank you Ma’am!

I am sitting in a bar. Shiny copper spotlights adorn the ceiling, tan oak wood covers the floor, and the whole place is lit in a dark yellowish hue, giving it a swanky feel.

South Georgia is a nice long way off

8th February 2020 26

                                                ‘Can we just escape?’ ‘If this is progress, please can I just get off.’ ‘Where will we go?’  older British people ask,  dreaming of a simpler age. ‘Portugal?’ they say hopefully. ‘Lots of immigration problems there and in Spain. The chaos on the Greek Islands will spread like blue dye swirling through a bowl of water.’ their all-knowing friend … [Read on]
