I'm sat here in my comfortable office in Kabul APOD, but I can't help thinking of those poor ******* of ours sat in PBs and PRTs......

Woke up early. family still in bed. I have not felt this lucky in ages, my thoughts and best wishes are with those who would choose another location this day.

... I read and made a note of this quote years ago ....



The Christmas Truce of 1914 was the final twitch of the 19th Century in being the last public moment at which it was assumed that people were nice . Further it was also the last gesture that human beings were getting better the longer the human race existed .
