Do not disturb.

Break Glass In Emergency

The Electoral College will meet on the 19th of December. It is almost certain to formalise the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States.

Almost certain. Thereby hangs a tale.

Maybe he won't be looking so smug after all?

Surveying her territory in the garden.

American Nightmare

Twenty-four days after the election, and the reality of the forthcoming Trump administration is beginning to sink in. We are in a scary place.

How did we get here, and what happens now?

To reiterate: If the Comedian were a real person, he'd be loving this, and also working for Trump.

Polls, Predictions, and Russian Roulette

In the aftermath of the US election, prediction websites have been heavily criticised for giving Clinton a high chance of victory. This is not the fault of the sites themselves; I think it has more to do with the mindset of the users.

This is really safe, right?

Cute Cat Friday 2016-11-18: Joni's Gotcha Day

Today is a very special Cute Cat Friday: It marks exactly one year since we brought Joni home from the Blue Cross.

Sadly things didn't work out between her and our other cat Belle, and we decided to rehome Belle. It was hard, but we are more sure than ever that we made the right choice. Joni has thrived in our home. She is amazingly patient with our toddler, maybe because she is a mother herself and thinks of him as an unusually large kitten.

Joni is a happy, confident, affectionate cat and a much loved member of our family. Here's to many more years together.
