Coming of age

22 November 2022

I don’t know how long this post has been in draft, with its date and time already predefined.And it is also one of the few that have been published after being in the draft: by now, I have lost count of those that have gone straight to the bin instead.There...


Starting the day has become complicated

21 November 2022

You feed your two black cats, Petula and Gigi, taking care that they don’t fight each other. Then comes the stray cat, renamed Tigger, and don’t you want to give him something to eat too? And the two squirrels arrive, one of which is pregnant.Then, perhaps, you can have breakfast...


Will there be life after death?

19 November 2022

It’s not a philosophical question, although that is my field.It is more of a concrete question: I had heard of human composting some time ago, but I thought it was futuristic. Instead, it already exists: it is done, for example, by a Seattle-based company that specialises in the service. The process...


For Christmas, send me your wishlists

Go vote, thieving misery

21 September 2022

As usual, the rest of us vote by post, and I have already done my duty.And as usual, I remind you that you must: 1. Inform yourself. Even if you already know what to vote for, look at the election programmes of the other parties. It never hurts; it is...


The Queen is dead, and I don't feel so good either

20 September 2022

Yesterday was Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. Since it was a national holiday, I watched it from the comfort of home, on the BBC.Today I went to the new office and felt a bit like a schoolgirl on the first day of school.The building is very nice and distinctive, the coffee quite...
