One from the vaults

Cousin lgvu asked this question a few years ago and I thought it would be nice to bring it forward again"

This past weekend I rewatched the "Odd Man Affair" (one of my favorites); it's been awhile since I've watched a Season One episode, so I noticed some differences in Illya - physically, of course, but also personality-wise. Aside from the stronger accent, he seemed to smile more, show more expression, especially compared to Season Four - is it just me or did he seem clinically depressed in Season Four?

Anyway, my question is: if you had to choose one Illya, would it be Season One? Two? Three? And possibly, maybe someone liked him in Season Four best?

*And I will add - what about Napoleon? What is your favorite season for Napoleon?

What say you, cousins?

Have you ever belonged to a book club?

Have you ever been to a book signing or met an author?

How do you choose the next book you are going to read?

Guys, I read that the vote isn't necessarily legally binding and that Parliament has to vote on it. Is there any chance that the leaving might never happen?

Today is . . .

. . . Swim a Lap Day!

Swimming is an actively humans are born with the ability to do. Unfortunately, we forget after a few month and have to relearn. It is an excellent form of exercise for everyone, and it is great for anyone with physical limitations. The buoyancy of the water takes the pressure of body and allows for slightly better movement.

We no longer have a pool in our town because the council sold the land to developers (it wasn't until later that all concerned found out that the land has a 99 year covenant on it which states it can only be used for community leisure purposes). The nearest one is six miles away, but is an awful place. Besides, being practically round, I look like a beach ball in a swimming costume.

Yeah, not so much

Is it possible to get rid of corruption in the government?

Robin Hood: is it okay to steal from the rich to help the poor?

What fresh hell is this?

And now we have the worst of all possible worlds.
Our entire country has voted to remain. Anyone care to bet on how long the UK can last now?

Edited, for those unfamiliar with UK politics:
Scotland survived a referendum only months ago, to remain in the UK. Now every single area in Scotland has voted to remain in the EU. Cameron could not have given the Nats a stronger mandate if he had tried.
(And I don't know enough to comment on the rumblings from Ireland so I will not.)

But this morning I am very, very angry.

For $169? Wow, this is so much better than the regular version... You can find the listing here.
