Working class saved the educated cowardly masses…? Yes, They Did!

Just a brief thought following the socio-political shock waves in US and Europe (some still pending): everybody’s talking about the global uprising of the working class – the blue collars that were bypassed by the technological revolution and can’t find their place in the new scheme of things.

How grandma’s advice became a business in the 21st century – BNI case in point

Remember Scarlett O’Hara before her official outing getting advice on behaviour of a proper lady? Not to eat (only married women were allowed to, because they already caught their fish), how to speak, to whom, order of dances etc?

The drag of August and September….השממון של אוגוסט-ספטמבר

I love heat. And sun….But this year it has been particularly extreme due to the almost 100% humidity. And it actually stalled everything, it halted life.
