How is the political shuffling going over there? More orderly than here I hope.

Maybe it should have said "May be hot" Maybe?

No need for the addition of "maybe not". It's all in the operative word "maybe". This would imply that it is not a certainty either way.

"Maybe hot" suggests it could also be at room temperature. Quite different to the unambiguous alternative "Do not touch because it is hot".

For the linguaphile

In Wales, in Llandudno Junction, in the Old Station Hotel, before renovations, in a decidedly low rate room, in the bathroom where the handle of the hot water faucet went 'round and 'round without producing anything, where the temperature was April brisk and the bathroom window didn't shut there was a heated towel rack with this sign posted above: "Do not touch rack maybe hot,". Given the general maintenance of the room and the fact that the rack remained at room temperature whether plugged in or not we felt it would be helpful to add the words "or maybe not" to the cautionary note.

"Mr. President what we have here is a Doomsday gap"

"The whole point of the Doomsday Machine is lost if you keep it a secret."

"OK, sir, I'll shoot it open but you're going to have to answer to the Coca-Cola company"

"There will be no fighting in the War Room"

Did you ever watch a film (sorry, movie) titled Dr Strangelove - Or How I Learned To Love The Bomb?

"Presidential" apparently now means retaliating instantly by popping off a bunch of missiles without ever discussing it with anyone, without finding out the guilty party, without getting authorization from Congress, without informing the public or other countries and without much thought about the unintended consequences.

I think you are right. I think it will turn into a real mess. Neither Russia or Iran will simply shrug their shoulders and ignore the bombings. However you and I are in the minority. Germany, France and the UK have all been, officially, supportive of the bombings.

Trump supporters in the US are figuratively cheering, waving their big plastic #1 fingers , chanting "We're number one", generally acting like they are at a sporting event. The more sedate are claiming the Trump is now truly acting "Presidential".

I think he is terribly wrong. He is playing with fire after his comments regarding North Korea and he could be over-reaching himself.

The Russians won't stand for it much longer and they are not exactly isolated as Obama once claimed. Far from it.

Whenever I watch Trump speaking I think of Alec Baldwin. If Trump is a reflection of America then the sooner the United States is isolated the better. Quarantined would be a better word.

Here's a copy and paste from http://www.HangTheBankers.com:
Despite Trump tweeting that any attacks on Syria are a bad idea when Obama was in office, suddenly Trump seems to think it is a good idea. This view is not being shared by his supporters and the majority of the American people and people around the globe.
Without an investigation into the chemical attacks and who carried them out, the US fired over 50 Tomahawk missiles into Syria.
It makes no sense for Assad to attack his own people at a time when the Syrian government is winning the war against ISIS and things were starting to settle. So who benefits?

Life is a balance. Each person has to find their own.

Quality of life is directly linked to good health. You must be fit to feel good.

I have, but I will die of old age sooner than from the effects of sugar. Quality of life is as important as length of life and for me quality includes dessert.

I avoid sugar in foods so none of that is of interest to me. No biscuits (cookies), cakes nor chocolate. I am on a strict no sugar regime.

Have you not heard the warnings?
