OT: On Tweets and Social Reach re. Muslim Ban

Although I said to someone bts the other day that I shall abstain from political comment on my blog in the future, I just cannot keep quiet on the recent/current developments in the US, i.e. the Muslim Ban. Disclosure 1: I am *not* a US citizen, but I believe that world politics are significantly shaped…

2017 Armitage Weekly Round-up #4

Wake-y wake-y! It’s time for your regular Saturday update. How are you keeping, ladies and gents? Are you as glad as me that January is almost over (and not a horrible continuous funeral like last year)? I am sloooowly easing myself into the year.

2017 Weekly Armitage Round-up #2

Gee, it’s quiet. Rich is all but vanished. I was off the scene for a week, too, nursing a deeply annoying flu. Back in business since yesterday, but nonetheless, everything currently feels as if it is only running on half-steam. Somehow my brain must have gotten affected by the flu – I can’t concentrate on anything,…
