Will Prince Charming Be Welcome?

WILL PRINCE CHARMING BE WELCOME?A famous man... I'll be forgetting my own name next... once said, "I can stand anything except a succession of indistinguishable days."  Sounds like he wouldn't cope well with lockdowns.   

I'll Stick to my Grandfather Clock

I'LL STICK TO MY GRANDFATHER CLOCKOn the edge of a black hole in space, time stops.  If we move away after a few minutes, a million years might have elapsed in the rest of the universe.  I know what you're thinking, and it sounds crazy to me as well.  There must be lots of mad scientists roaming around avoiding captivity.

There's Trouble in Store

THERE'S TROUBLE IN STOREWorking in a large organisation must be quite depressing at times.  Just think - whenever a famous person dies, someone at Wikipedia has to change all the verbs into the past tense.  While fighting back tears, if they admired the deceased. Is there such a publication as Who Was Who?

There's Still a Lot of Coffee in Brazil

THERE'S STILL A LOT OF COFFEE IN BRAZILI once ate dinner in a restaurant called Chez David - where else? - in a market town in southern France called Castelnaudary, famous for a rich slow-cooked casserole known as cassoulet, of which it claims to be the world capital.

Religious Tourism – Part 3, Islamites

MertolaPart 3. In my books on tourism potentials in the Algarve and the whole of Portugal, I mentioned religious tourism as something with great profit, to come. In the book RESSURGIR, on my chapter about the FUTURE OF TOURISM, I repeated it.

Is there a cure for the Lovesick Blues?

IS THERE A CURE FOR THE LOVESICK BLUES?Most vaccines are developed to prevent disease, but medical researchers, like dress designers, are never satisfied with last year's fashions.  Their holy grail at present is the creation of therapeutic vaccines to treat illnesses after we have contracted them.  Could a future vaccine cure my bagpipe-playing? Or make Frank Ifield's 'Lovesick Blues' a thing of the past, like his yodelling? (But not Frank - he'll be 85 by the time you read this.)
