Book nerds, have you read The Invisible Library? I am loving this series. The hero is a librarian! Parallel worlds, London(s), detectives, zeppelins, faeries, dragons, magic and tech... Oh, it's wonderful so far. The hero is capable, clever, intelligent, and strong! I'm on book two and the current setting is Venice. Loving it! Do give it a read.

Not based on facts, based on ignorance and fear. And now thousands of innocent dogs will lose their lives. Shame on you #Montreal .

#EndBSL   #BoycottMontreal  
To Denis Coderre (Mayor of Montréal, Québec, Canada): If you and your city council politicians insist on restricting and banning dogs because of the way they look, then we and all of OUR friends will choose not to contribute to the City of Montreal...

I really did find something clever to help save you packing space for your roadtrip. Honest!
 
So you've found that amazing airfare to Reykjavík and just had to grab it! But what do you bring?

This is not about censorship. This is about recovering from trauma.

The Council of State gave the ruling following a request from the League of Human Rights to overturn the burkini ban in the Mediterranean town of Villeneuve-Loubet on the grounds it contravenes civil liberties.

Has the world gone completely mad? Shame on the people who promote such discrimination. The 'burkini' is about women having the freedom to be themselves on the beach!!! Glad a High Court Judge has overturned the nonsense law.
