    Nice try.
    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath

    Slight change to the Sunday Plan...

    Just got back from Bangor Hospital, Mother admitted on Friday with low oxygen levels in her blood - did her usual trick of not informing the rest of the family, no answer on her phone for a couple of days, ring my mate who's a plod on Anglesey to nip round and make sure she's not lying dead on the floor. Then transpires she's been admitted to hospital.

    Oi Brillo, I noticed it was foggy near your neck of the woods!

    How long will she be in hospital for?

    It was spectacular round here! Took DD to school for house orientiering - the views were incredible even by the Snowdonia high standards.

    I did have a slightly odd incident on the way to school. I have to turn onto the A470 at a roundabout. The A470 bends alot round there - but I checked and nothing coming when I turned on. As I turned off the roundabout a few seconds later there was a car very close on my bumper - he must have been speeding. He had daughter in passenger seat - about 4 years old. He then overtook - and pulled alongside and started mouthing something. I just mouthed 2@ at him. He then went totally ballistic and pretended to pull car in towards me. I laughed - which sent him appepletic. Of course after he passed he had one of those Cymru stickers - I think Cymru is Welsh for "short, small minded racist d1ck-head". He then drove really slowly. Just after my turning he stopped his car - I think he wanted fisticuffs.

    Of course such things do not happen in London. People there are hard as nails and most are tooled up. Anyone who behaves like such an idiot in London very quickly gets shanked.

    But what I really don't understand is if he was in a hurry and I got in his way, just go round and carry on. Either you are in a hurry or not. Still, logic is not a strong point of the locals. Not quite sure who someone on benefits(paid for by the English of course) has a car. Stole it?

    Will have a better idea today when I go and visit. Although having seen her today It'll probably be in a box - her lungs are ****'d, COPD. I don't think 55 years of smoking has helped...

    The human body is quite astonishing so hopefully she will push on. Good luck and please let us know.

    Been to see her today, 100% better now they've purged her system of CO2. They've moved her to the respiratory ward an we should have some idea soon when she'll be released. Trouble is her lymphoedema has flared up again so they've that to contend with too.

    Old people, they should shoot 'em as soon as bits start falling off!

    So what fun & frolics do you have planned?
    I suppose I had better ask before HJ gets her knickers in a twist again.

    It would also be great to hear about Zig-Mater.

    No doubt no-one will ask me what I am up to. Which is good really as I hate you all. I just hope I never meet any of you in real life.....

    TFA, another weekend away.

    Tonight: Christmas party of our drinking Stammtisch
    Tomorrow: Train to Berlin followed by beer and food with some old friends
    Sunday: Touristy tulipe followed by The Stranglers and The Ruts
    Monday: Shopping, more touristy tulipe (Christmas markets probably) followed by The Newtown Neurotics who are currently trying to get one of their old songs to no.1 in the UK in time for the election
    Back home on Tuesday although whilst in the hotel I shall also be catching up on work matters

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
