My big son complained that his younger brother watched YouTube on his smartphone and thus polluted the recommendation algorithm of YouTube so instead of suggesting him his usual stuff he is now stalked with videos for preteens...
Now that is really the pits.

LOL.
The intelligent house will soon give you lists like:
brushed teeth - check!
put both socks on - check!
kissed the wife good morning - check!

Alzheimer may not be cured - but beaten.

Indeed.

"The Moscow authorities have dumped artificial snow in the city centre for New Year festivities, as this is now the Russian capital's warmest December since 1886."

Good to see that something is finally being done about climat change.

It's too sunny. Some more snow in the mountains would be nice.

Attended my second day of French lessons today, I've learnt to say Je ne comprends pas by heart.
I don't know what it means though.

You got it then.

All you need to learn really is "je ne parle pas français". The ultimate killer.

PS. Have you learnt what a 'metro' is yet?

I was once in the Paris metro it had no idea where I was.
Sortie was simply not on the metro map.

Yeah, that is not customer friendly, is it.

Raffles though managed to use a metro in Switzerland, which - unless I'm not up to date - does not exist here.
