A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

Before, during, and for a short while after the recent US election, I over-generously gave Trump the benefit of my doubt; I couldn't believe that he would continue in his boorish fashion once he had his knees beneath the oval office desk. It would have been in his best interest to become more 'pragmatic and presidential'. How very wrong I was; as we all now know, he refused to become so.
If anything he has become more of an oaf than before. His arrogance has increased, his posturing is more pronounced, and his questionable mental state even more in question.
The man is a laughing stock, as well as being a serious danger to every single one of us. The USA used to be seen as a progressive, modern, country; it is now seen as a 'toxic' world problem. As a respected Washington commentator recently said 'It's like watching a great power committing suicide in front of a global audience'.
I suspect that the orange hooligan wishes to go down in history as the man who destroyed North Korea. Maybe both he and fat boy should be locked away safely before they destroy the whole bloody planet.
If that wasn't enough, he's started to insult Britain. YOU DON'T DO THAT Sunshine. Yet again, I despair.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
