It’s official: people are stupid!

Well, well – it’s been a funny old day! LOL. I was just at a meat market in a big city and in a 60-second conversation with a meat trader – he told me “..people are stupid! They don’t know what they’re doing or where they’re going.” This chap ownsRead More

Musings over the past 6 months
