Oh my god... it’s full of stars!

A free app for Android phones has the edge on anything Apple’s iPhone™ may have to offer.

This morning I see that the Sun rises accompanied by Mercury, Neptune and Uranus.

It must be so, because it’s on my phone!

I don’t even need to look out the window... in fact, what’s actually out there is irrelevant.

Godwin in a time warp

Quote of the Week from Andrew Bolt:

I remember being attacked when I warned of the strong links between Nazism and Germany’s green groups in the 1930s.

That would have been sometime just before he warned FDR of Japan’s growing militarist ambitions.
