Hats, Health and Honor

The anti-biotics I’m now on are solar-sensitive (if interested in my latest health problems see here). This means that when I’m out in the now blazing sunshine I have to wear gloves and a wide brimmed hat. The hat in question is a Fedora. In the photo below you’ll see that I’m now back on the roll-ups, having recovered from a mega chest infection, which came on the tail of mega dental work in February and March…

Zonked as I am on all the meds, it took me a while to remember who else wears a Fedora…

    Wiltshire Police said further tests on the substance were being carried out in a bid to identify it.

    Amesbury is about ten miles from Salisbury, where former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia were poisoned by a suspected military nerve agent in March.

    So, a few months later
    two more people have been taken to Salisbury Hospital for mystery poisoning, they are not yet calling it a deadly nerve gassing
    but a major incident has been called

    MoD Boscombe Down is actually right on the edge of the town of
    Amesbury, it has the highest level of security. I can count eighteen Hardened Bunkers.
    Also only three Kilometres from DSTL Porton Down.

      The U.K.government’s emergency committee, Cobra, has met in the Cabinet Office at an official level to discuss the events in Amesbury, which is being “treated with the utmost seriousness”.

      Russians at it again?

    Nasib border crossing, between Jordan and Syria, now back in the hands of Jordan and Syria.

    When it was taken and held by terrorists in 2015, there were then, no open border crossings between Jordan and Syria.

    Muhanad al-Asfar, a senior member of the Syrian Exporters’ Union, described the loss in 2015 of the border post as a “catastrophe” for the Syrian economy.

    As long as Turkey and Israel and Qatar and Saudi Arabia and America and Australia and France and the U.K.
    leave Syria alone, they stand a slim chance of recovering from this horror

    There was a joint Syrian-Jordanian Economic zone, just on the Syrian side of the border, adjacent to the Nasib border crossing, this through route to Aqaba, on the Red Sea, was a major transit for Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Iraq as well as Jordan, the closing of this crossing and the economic zone has been a financial catastrophe for Jordan, recently, the Jordanian prime minister was forced to step down because of protests about austerity.
