The last week was interesting in various aspects: I have to have yet another expensive dental treatment. I organised a – small – surprise birthday party for my husband on Saturday, and had a lot of help from my youngest son who did the shopping, carried it all upstairs, helped with the tidying and cleaning and even with the cooking. I think that was the first party ever where I didn't have to do everything all on my own. Meanwhile, after five months of conscription (with only another four months left), my eldest son has decided he doesn't want to do his conscription after all and has claimed conscientious objection. With no chance of finding a place in community service right now, no job and no income, this is going to be interesting if the army accepts his claim.
On to matters Post and community related:
The bad news: Various Twitter accounts were hacked last week. So far, the Post Twitter Account seems to be safe, but that so many accounts were hacked is a little worrying, to say the least. Then there are the rumours about the BBC going to close half of its websites, a few radio stations and get rid of magazines and staff in the process. For all I know, the BBC hasn't yet commented so I am not going to panic until somebody official tells me so.
The good news: We have yet another columnist who earned their badge: congratulations, Emma! Last week, we published an article I had chosen from a former column from the archives. I am delighted to say that Demon Drawer, the original author, has expressed his interest in resurrecting it, time allowing, and you'll find the comeback article below.
As usual, we have a variety of interesting articles to offer, so please enjoy your current issue of the Post.
