Something completely different. I know I intended to no longer talk politics here, it is too much of a source for discussions and disagreements, and I am here to blog and not to hold political discussions. We all have our own point of views, and I make no effort to show that I do not like the new American guy in charge, although none of my business.
However I do enjoy a good laugh and happened to come across this video from a dutch TV programme on Facebook. One of my colleagues has reproduced it on her blog and so I do not want to withhold it here. All apologies to those with different ideas, but it is so well done. The first few words in dutch, but otherwise all in english. I suppose I should be more careful what I put on my blog, you never know. If it no longer exists it is because a higher power than me made a decision it must go, because it is a fake.
And now back to real Swiss life as I know it. Today is day of shopping. I have no big plans to do something completely different. At my age I might get into the headlines in the newspapers. I will again be armed with my camera on the way to the shops. I have a busy life in front of me for the next few weeks. A visit to my doctor, a visit to my nurologist and my feline has to pay a visit to the vet for her annual jabs – although Mr. Swiss will take care of that one. We used to take all three cats at once to the vet once a year. That was an excursion that needed both of us and stratigic planning. Three cages in the car each one with a cat. It was a real excursion and we needed at least an hour until everything was conpleted. Unfortunately two of our felines have now passed onto the etnernal corn chambers, and we are left with Tabby. She seems to be quite healthy, no problems and will be celebrating her 15th birday this year in April. She also has her own WordPress site and paws every day her thoughts on the meaning of a feline life. At the moment she is sleeping to collect her ideas for today’s words of feline wisdom.
It is still quite cold here, although no snow, and the birds are gathering and watching all the time. I sometimes feel I am in a movie. Alfred Hitchcock seems to have put ideas in the birds’ brains. Now and again they do a communal swoop into the garden. One sparrow alone is no big problem, but 10 or more is approaching an army and they just sit a watch from the trees most of the time. I have a funny feeling sometimes. Yesterday a whole gang of sparrows arrived on the ground opposite my garden. I took an action shot, but could not get all of them into the picture. They looked quite menacing just sitting and watching.
Have a nice day everyone, see you around later if I am still allowed. Oh, and I also tweet, but only crosspostings from WordPress, nothing world shaking and no political manifests. I do not have enough words to say it all.
