NZ’s Pregnant Prime Minister (plus Tweets)

First off I must apologise. (Yes, that’s how we spell it in New Zealand.) I’ve been neglecting my website for a couple of weeks. There has been writing going on, but none of it made it here. Two posts are progressing slowly, and one may actually see the light of day. (Not every post I write makes it to the website; I often decide they’re just not good enough.) I’ve also been doing... read more

A New Prince, God’s Grace, and Blasphemy Laws (plus Tweets)

The American People DIDN’T Elect Trump (plus Tweets)

Everything is the same as usual with me. The problem was I didn’t have a laptop. On Thursday morning while rushing to answer a Skype call from a friend, I sent my laptop flying across the table and onto the floor.... read more

A Miscellany of Stupid (plus Tweets)

I wasn’t planning to do a Tweets Post at the moment. I’m working on a couple of other more substantial posts that are taking a lot of time. However, there are a few things I want to bring to your attention. They’re not Good Things. They’re WTF things. As I’ve said before, I’m (very) slowly doing a post about John Bolton. I think Donald Trump is aware that bringing... read more
