One of my all-time favourite tv shows was called Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds.

There were many actual historical figures like King Louis XIII and Cardinal Richelieu.

But guess what ? All the characters were dogs. Can you believe that ? Just blows your mind doesn't it ?

I mean, whatever next ?

The quality of writing and level of funding is on a different scale.

Also an understanding of the international market. Most Japanese domestic product is an epic turn-off.

As much as I would feel duty-bound to. Sadly, all my episodes of Crossroads do not transfer from VHS tapes to my hard drive by themselves.

Aren't most of the tv shows a trio of idiots wandering around some small town looking for something to eat with ordinary people as dull stooges ?

You can't stop the Russians getting the latest cutting-edge sounds however hard we might try. I'm pretty sure they know other ways of getting Aerosmith and Rod Stewart cassettes.

At least she tried to get all the illegal economic migrants sent off to Rwanda.

Which is actually quite close to where her parents escaped from.

Definition ? Someone showing people something.

Examples : Using woke in a sentence, civvies carrying guns, overuse of national flags and not wearing a mask in the peak of a global pandemic.

I'm no fan of Biden but, by God, somebody has to stand up and try to defend the democratic principles of the US because the Republican Party and most of its followers have gone stark raving mad. And not in a ha-ha, look at the fool type of way.
