08:45 – It was 59.9F (15.5C) when I took Colin out around 0715 this morning, overcast and breezy.
Happy Birthday to me. Today I turn the Big 0x40. Barbara is working the Friends of the Library bookstore from 1000 to 1330 today, after which she leaves to drive down to Winston. She’s having dinner with Frances and Al, staying the night, and heading back up tomorrow morning. It’s also Al’s birthday today. Poor Barbara and Frances. They’re big on celebrating holidays, including birthdays, while neither Al nor I celebrates holidays, including birthdays.
We finished watching the second season of the new version of Poldark on Amazon streaming last night. Looking for something similar to queue up, I came across several recommendations for Outlander, so we sampled an episode of that. It certainly has good dresses, better than Poldark, and the lead character is an Irish cutie. That’s good enough for me to add a series to our watch list, and Barbara said it was fine with her.
There’ll always be an England? Maybe not, judging by the Brit response or lack thereof to muslim outrages. I wrote off western continental Europe long ago. They’re apparently unaware that they’re being invaded by hordes of scum intent on killing, raping, and destroying western culture. What they need is another Charles The Hammer Martel. Instead, they have Merkel and Macron. I no longer have any sympathy for them. A country that refuses to defend its women isn’t worth saving.
But I didn’t expect this of England. They have a very long history of defending their shores from invaders. On the other hand, they do lose every millennium or so, a thousand years ago to the Normans and two thousand years ago to the Romans. So they’re about due to come under the rule of a foreign invasion force. Trouble is, the muslims are much, much worse than the Normans or the Romans, both of whom at least represented Western civilizations. The muslims are neither Western nor a civilization.
Long-term, I expect we’ll see a large influx of Brit refugees arriving in other Anglo-Saxon countries, which is to say the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Let’s just hope it doesn’t come to another miracle of Dunkirk, but this time on a massive scale.
