Yes that is me today, feeling listless, dry, no energy. There is no action around here. Like the seeds hanging on my hibiscus, left from the flowers of last year. Even the seeds have gone, eaten by the birds throughout the Winter.
I could perhaps read the daily newspaper telling me what is happening in the world. What? No newspapers, not allowed, they have been banned. They are spreading fake news amongst the population and insulting innocent people by telling lies about them. What are we coming to in tnhis world? An honest person wanting to do good, trying to improve the quality of living is being ignored and insulted. So he has banned news, especially fake news, that is infiltrating our lives. It is unfair to target a respectable person that only wants the good for his own people and for others. What is this world coming to, if an honest person cannot try to do good and improve our living.
We must be careful today as not everyone means well with us. There are people just waiting for the chance to destroy your country, so keep them out. There is only one way to combat these evil people. Keep ahead, do not trust annyone, be the first and posses arms that are bigger and better than those that the others have. If you do something, then do it properly – no half way house. I am becoming political – no, never, just repeating what Facebook is saying, after all, as I said, there are no more international newspapers.
In the meanwhile I will occupy myself with the Swiss news, we still have newspapers in three different languages. There is also a fourth language, but not worth talking about as that is a minority, and the minorities have to look after themselves. Just taking a look at the most recent news from Switzerland (in english of course, english always first) I see that we have broken records with a brief Spring in Februaty. There will be a new secret weapon to protect our people, mountains, and cows – I read that the Swiss army want to recruit more women, the top comander of the Swiss army says it will be “beneficial” to the army. I have decided to volunteer, and do my part in keeping Switzerland first, or perhaps second, but most important, not last.
It seems that fitness classes will be organised to help female recruits build up muscle strength before being exposed to physically difficult tasks. This is what I need, instead of just sitting around writing blogs I can do something for my country. Mr. Swiss finds that I should forget it. He needs me to cook lunch and do the ironing. He bought me a washing machine so I do not have to wash anything by hand. He also volunteers to put new bed linen on the beds, to help build up his strength.
According to the army spokesman “our society is no longer used to marching from 6a to 11 pm”, although they are underestimating Mr. Swiss. He often takes a walk in the afternoon with his iPod in his ears. Not only physical but mental training.
Yes, we can do it, and how. Of course we will have to organise uniforms, and arm ourselves. I am not sure about rifles and women only have access to pistols, but there are always crossbows, as used by the Swiss heroes of earlier days. Yes, Viva William Tell, an example to all Swiss citizens all over the world.
