Re: Enter the Wokeness

Not sure what you mean about funding priority. Art Institute of Chicago is an independent educational and non-profit institution. It has an endowment, and membership, and other sources of income...

Re: Pics From Home (UK)

Ipswich is much underrated. I’ve seen it described as the biggest and most substantial town in England that ISN’T a city (for various historical reasons.) It has several very impressive &...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Thanks for the link, I’ll read that Ringelblum diary.

Here’s one interesting piece from Ha’aretz about the Judenrate controversy. It’s been a contentious issue for nearly 80 years, the...

Re: Pics From Home (UK)

One place I’ve never been to (but hope to visit this trip) is Felixstowe. Just a few minutes from Ipswich by train, it’s quite a bit more London-accessible than Cromer. It has a reputation as a...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

It does need to be recognised, though, that the Holocaust as a topic is not just a simple binary - either you “believe in the Holocaust” or you are a “Holocaust denier.”

Like any other topic that...

Re: Pics From Home (UK)

Here’s one of a tractor pulling a fishing boat up to above the high water line. The tractor phenomenon seems common in Norfolk, in places where there’s no harbor. Cromer has a fleet of antique,...

Re: Pics From Home (UK)

I thought you were having a larf when you said Monaco. But, amazingly, there apparently IS a Hotel de Paris in Monaco!! Must have been started as a subsidiary of the one in Cromer?

Re: President Trump.

Very different roles, aren’t they, Canadian & US senates? I always assumed the Canadian Senate was created to emulate the House of Lords in the UK, where the Commons is clearly preeminent but the...

Re: President Trump.

Agreed, but I can live with that, because although it is egregious & undemocratic, it is fixed and not amenable to partisan tinkering. Population shifts can make small rural states more purple too -...

Re: Moving back to UK but not just yet!

My son had a similar experience when he applied to four places in England for his masters degree. Two offered UK fees, two international. He accepted one of the schools charging international fees -...

Re: WTF back in the UK

Hard to pin royalty down by national origin. I mean, the Duke of Rothesay’s father certainly wasn’t an actual Greek. But was he English, German, or Danish?

I’d never heard of Allen Stanford. That certainly is an interesting story.

Re: WTF back in the UK

As you get older, your options start shrinking. I now know I’ll not be a King or a Queen. :(

But at least I can go cycling without wearing a suit & tie :thumbup:

Re: WTF back in the UK

All those countries seem to have aged and portly monarchs. The only possibility is Belgium.

Re: WTF back in the UK

Hmm .. the Queen of Denmark is in her eighties, I don’t think that is her. And I don’t think the guy is the Queen’s husband. Are they imposters?

Re: President Trump.

Seriously, if I’ve spent money on elections, it’s always Senate candidates I support. At least it’s a level playing field in individual Senate elections, with no gerrymandering possible. And each...

Re: WTF back in the UK

In addition to Deputy Private Secretaries, there are Assistant Private Secretaries. And Equerries. That’s just scratching the surface. Each of those officials will have a supporting team.

Re: Moving back to UK but not just yet!

Is a longer stay in the United States a possibility? Because after four academic years in US schools, your daughter would be well qualified for college or university in the US.
