Thank you very much. It went very well, it was only a 13 mile run, I normally do 8 miles every day, so — it wasn't a big deal. The weather was also quite good — +21 C, not too muggy and a lot of breeze. It was great.

P. S. It says there in Daniel's report that he is polite. But at home — he can be quite cheeky (нагленький) — especially with me. He would ask me a question out of the blue — some scientific question — about some dinosaur or something else and I genuinely don't know the answer and usually give the wrong answer. He then says «Mom, you are quite dumb as it happens, you don't know much, do you?» I don't take offence, cause he is quite funny. So I would say «I do know quite a lot, ask me another one». And I usually give the wrong answer again — he honestly knows about some stuff a lot more than me. And he says back «Mom, you are even dumber than I first thought. But don't worry, I love you anyway.» When I ask him who he wants to be when he grows up he says «palaeontologist». I say to him «I hope that will change as you grow up, as they don't earn any money».

Do you remember I told you I didn't know how Boris and his gang are going to get their hard Brexit stance through our Parliament — which is mainly Remain Parliament. They are saying they will stop a no deal Brexit. Well, today Johnson said that if need be, he will suspend the Parliament around the 31st of October to leave with No deal. He can do it — it is not illegal, but there will be a lot of shit hitting the fan if it happens — from Remainers.

Can you believe it — today the new EU Commission leader — that German Ursula — said that going forward — the EU will have its own foreign policy without even consulting heads of member states — they won't be required to gather to approve /disapprove any decisions. There will be their own Army - EU army, United States of Europe. They really are moving towards one Parliament, one Government. And those in charge are not elected, but self appointed. This is crazy. I think it is worth getting out of this madness at whatever cost.


P.S. She also said there would be no negotiations over the backstop , but she is prepared to give the UK as many extensions as we want. They don't want us to leave. Backstop , if it was accepted by the UK - would effectively trap the UK in the Customs Union with the EU indefinitely and it would be Brexit in name only. Both Johnson and Hunt said as far as they are concerned, the WA (Withdrawal Agreement) is ripped up. IF there is no renegotiating it - it is "Hello No deal Brexit."

P. S.< Made another photo from the report — re Maths. He won a massive Maths competition recently and is amazing at it. 3 circles means — «significantly above the national average», 2 circles «in line with expectations» and one circle— «there is room for improvement». He has 3 circles in English, science and maths. My daughter mostly has 1 circle in the subjects, sometimes 2 circles .Here is the pic

kids are so funny sometimes

A friend of mine was going to visit Georgia with his family, but unfortunately his wife had to stay home. They decided that he shouldn't cancel the trip and he went to Georgia with their 5 yo daughter.

After he returned home, his wife asked their daughter about the trip and how did they spend their free time there.
And the answer was: "Что было в Грузии - останется в Грузии".

I'm not surprised at all. She is former German defence minister. And she was promoting idea of one European army for a long time. Since German army is seriously limited, they think European army can help EU/Germany to become a major geopolitical player.

Lioness Lola and her cubs


I heard that previous owner was going to euthanize her. She is lucky she made it to Taygan.

She probably repeats after adults. It is funny when little kids use the same expressions as adults do. But with Daniel — he has always talked like an adult, but not repeating like a parrot, he expresses his own thoughts with this ultra scientific language. Even when he was a little toddler in the buggy s ucking on a dummy, he would take the dummy out of his mouth and say something really clever and then put the dummy back in and carry on s ucking it. It used to shock people, and his nickname amongst other moms was Stew, Stew was this ultra clever little kid from Family Guy (American cartoon). And now his language is not that of an 8 year old. The teachers at school are saying his development is miles ahead. My husband says he used to be exactly the same as a kid. At around Daniel's age he co authed this book about Aquarium Fish diseases, which got published at the time - he had lots of different aquariums around the house, his Mom still remembers what a nightmare it was (cause she didn't want an aquarium in every single room you know). He was also just 8 or 9 at the time.

I don't think he has any choice. But the Tory Party has some Remainers too. May was one of them. I think she did everything possible to string Brexit along in the hope that eventually everyone will be so sick and tired of it, that it will be kicked in the long grass in the end (idiom for «put aside and well forgotten»). Tory Remainers are still trying their hardest to stop NO Deal. The thing is — of course everyone wants a deal, however — the deal on offer is not Brexit, but another form of vassalage (being a vassal state) to Brussels, which is even worse than remaining. So — if Brexit is to be, it has to be Hard, that has to be the start. If afterwards Brussels still don't budge, so be it. We shouldn't be afraid to trade with them just like any other country does — US, Russia, China, you name it. Yes, we are a small country, but Singapore is also small, Switzerland is small. And they are doing quite well. And we are the 5th largest economy in the world and the second largest in Europe.

At the moment — the Cabinet is still May's old Cabinet and Chancellor Hammond (all of them will be out of Downing street pretty soon) is putting up this fight, saying he will stop No deal. Jacob Rees Mogg is putting up a fight against him.

Philip Hammond's negative view of no-deal Brexit is pure silliness: it could boost our economy by £80bn

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/07/16/...

In any case, it seems Boris means business as he is lining up a really hard Eurosceptic Cabinet, including the likes of Daniel Moylan https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/07/17/... and Dominic Raab for Chancellor of the Exchequer (he is the ex Brexit Secretary who resigned cause he didn't agree with May, then ran for the Tory leader, but after he was out of the race, threw his support behind Boris https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/06/14/...

Here is what they think about her over here:

Ursula von der Leyen is gearing up to be the most hardcore EU-federalist Commission President in history

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/07/17/...

Fanatical Von der Leyen is the final nail in the coffin for shambolic EU 'democracy'

By the way, today they named the song which has been the most played around the world in the 21st century so far. Guess what track it is. Don't look it up. I will give you a clue — it is an alternative rock group from Britain — Scotland and Northern Ireland.

A lot of things are now starting to come to light, that explain May's behaviour of pandering to the EU in the negotiations and stringing along Brexit for 3 years. There was this BBC Panorama programme, where there were extensive interviews with her negotiating team, etc. She was planning full scale Brexit betrayal.

Michel Barnier told BBC Panorama the thrice-rejected agreement negotiated by Theresa May was the «only way to leave the EU in an orderly manner».
He also insisted Mrs May and her ministers «never» told him during Brexit talks she might opt for no deal.
Publicly, Mrs May has always insisted no deal is better than a bad deal.


Elsewhere in the programme, Theresa May's de facto deputy David Lidington revealed that a senior EU official made a secret offer to the UK to put Brexit on hold for five years and negotiate a «new deal for Europe».

Oh, I know her quite well. She is a little troll who tries to mock adults all the time and I'm sure she said it to make her mom nervous

Interesting phrase. Thanks.

It became too expensive for him to keep her. She was very thin, he was feeding her with some kind of porrigde




She became that gorgeous animal you can see in the vid later when she changed her owner. In Taygan she became much healthier and bigger. She also got acquainted with the male lion called Marseille. That is why people call her cubs «марсельвята»
