I think I might have to start doing this as Saturday Six news as getting it done for Fridays continues to be difficult. I was helping out at my MIL's yesterday so I didn't have time to get this finished and ready for posting.
But here goes:
news I spotted this short video clip of
a 30 lane traffic jam (yes THIRTY) of cars returning to Beijing after a
national holiday. Makes coping with 4
lane stretches of the M25 look like a walk in the park!
news continues to focus on Jeremy Corbyn’s
views on certain things that have little bearing on actual politics. The latest speculation is about whether he
will bow before the Queen and kiss her hand when he takes up his position in
the privy council. These sorts of
stories sell newspaper but it does distract from things that really matter.
Moving on to SPORT:
I’m not really following the Rugby World Cup but it would be impossible not to
be aware that England, the host nation, have been knocked out in the first part
of the competition. Just a tad
In ENTERTAINMENT I
noticed that apparently Justin Bieber’s latest hit has gone back to #1 in the
charts for the third time. This makes me
feel old. I wouldn’t recognise a Bieber
song if he was standing in front of me singing it!
And finally MISCELLANEOUS: This is an article on “The lost art of
getting lost” and I think vindicates my continued use of maps and working out
directions rather than relying on all the latest technology. “We're
raising an entire generation of men who will never know what it is to refuse to
ask for directions.” I know how
stubborn men like that can be. But again
it is definitely a generation thing. My
hubby would fall into that category. My
sons would just whip out their smart phones!
