Catching Up (plus Tweets)

My apologies for another long break between posts. I thought I should explain, and also use the opportunity to post some videos and tweets. I’ve been out of town visiting the doc, which always takes me a while to recover from. In addition, my electric lift armchair is broken. Coping without it is difficult.

Spygate is lie-gate (as someone else said, but I can’t remember who). Spygate is a conspiracy theory. It has no basis in fact. It began around three weeks ago when Trump, via his faithful Twitter account, made the announcement that... read more
