Batteries of batteries

Almost everything I use these days runs on a battery. They are everywhere. Big ones, little ones, minute ones, light ones, heavy ones, new ones and old ones. No wonder the power generation plants are going into meltdown, it is everyone using up energy to create more energy. Hardly a night goes by without the need for something to be plugged in and recharged.

When I was a wee boy I detested battery powered toys, mainly because the batteries would suddenly run out and interrupt your fun and we never seemed to have any spares in the house either. Now, all my stuff seems to need the things, albeit they are now all rechargeable, well almost all. I often wonder what would happen to this old world if we ran out of electrical power. At least no-one could watch trashy telly, I suppose, which would be a benefit. As for the rest of those things we do from day to day, where would we be? Wouldn't do much good for the likes of Microsoft or even Google. No power, no PCs, no internet. No blogs.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Here is a list of all the things I have that need batteries: No, wait. There are too many and I can't be bothered to write all of them down. Suffice it to say that batteries are everywhere.

Do you ever think about such inane things, dear reader? I do hope not.

The Berlusconi Effect

He’s done it again. Once more Italy’s scandal ridden leader has managed to hold onto power in Italy by the skin of his teeth.

His decline is inexorable, inevitable, but Silvio Berlusconi is not at the end of the road just yet.

Yesterday’s victory, albeit very slim, demonstrated how deeply Berlusconi’s talons reach into the flesh of Italian politics and Italian society.
