Good morning. Wet and blustery here and the kitties are very fed up. They snuck out of the back door keeping low cos of the wind, got about 6' to the first corner of the annex and scurried back in after meeting the full blast of wind. No doubt I shall have "help" with my sewing today.
FB - hot chocolate is wonderfully comforting in extreme cold. Glad you're getting lots of northern lights. They don't always perform to order.
Dove - I have always thought that the Guardian has a very blinkered views of supposed Socialist revolutions and happily skim over the human element of the cost on small traders and producers and workers. Same with anyone who viewed Stalin and Lenin with a less than critical eye. Between them they wiped out more Russians and people from occupied territories than the Nazis did in their camps and they were a disaster for the economy. Same with dictators like Mugabe, other African leaders and their like. The right wing press is no better at being honest and analytical.
Pat - most of the skin crackled as it should but I tried your trick with the bits that didn't. Not as successful as I'd hoped but the dogs thought it was yummy.
Haven't seen UK weather reports today but I hope everyone is safe and warm and dry.
