Happy Birthday to me

08 April 2021

This semi-prime number, 51, is a bit like that, neither meat nor fish (my anguish does not subside).I don’t really want to party, and anyway, the restaurants and pubs here reopen after 12. Since January, we have been in a hard and pure lockdown; perhaps (perhaps) after May 17th, we...

Reiterate the concept
