A Short Break

I am currently relocating, so there will be a pause in posts for the next week or so, once the computers have escaped the cardboard boxes. normality will return.

 

Happy Christmas

A big thankyou to everyone who has read the blog, a big thankyou to the guest posters who have taken time out from their own blogs to write for Aardvark and another big thankyou to everyone who has sent me links to stories.

Happy Christmas to everyone, including warming alarmists 😀

All the histories written about the war described the moment the fighting ended, but right up until 11:00 the fighting continued and men died or were wounded.
