French breeders say high temperatures have led to eggs being lost and UK supplies could be hit

The UK could face a turkey shortage this Christmas as a heatwave in France has resulted in dwindling supplies of eggs for farmers.

French breeders provide about a quarter of eggs hatched in the UK that go on to become the birds that form the centrepiece of festive dining tables.

Inmates having a feast while federal employees stay unpaid during government shutdown

"This is appalling," said Coleman prison union chief Joe Rojas. "We're not getting paid, and the inmates are eating steak. The inmates know what's going on; they know about the shutdown, and they are laughing at us."

And still I'm laughing about it. I hope the inmates enjoyed their meals while the guards to watch them. I know out of the news how those guards are working, and how many of those people incarcerated there are innocent, or didn't deserve to be jailed. And what do those people do? They keep this system of injustice running, even being paid for this crap. They deserve this treatment, for it is the same what they are doing to the people they keep behind the bars. The tables have turned, at last.

Drumpf, who has demanded $5.6 billion to help pay for a disputed border wall, later acknowledged warning Democrat leaders that an impasse could last for months or even years if a deal cannot be reached on financing for the wall.

Meanwhile: The #Queen's Speech

The Queen, 92, will say: "I believe his message of peace on earth and goodwill to all is never out of date. It can be heeded by everyone; it's needed as much as ever."

You can clearly see that the monarchy has worn off in these times, even her speech has lost all connection to reality. You can believe on whathever you are happy to believe in, but shouldn't it be a little bit more realistic? When you have seen even jsut a small speck of the pariamentary debate about the Brexit plans, you can feel glad when they end without someone having lost some of one's teeth. Goodwill and peace among us are something we have moved far away from.

The Queen will say: "Even with the most deeply-held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding."

A good step, but unfortunately, it's no step that would be taken nowadays. People are far more likely to... Show more...
My immediate family on Christmas Eve. This year is a bittersweet time because we are missing my older brother who passed away last January 15th.

Outgoing senators and representatives express their uncertainty

As senators who were either ousted in the elections or decided to retire and not seek another term reflected on their time in Congress, many expressed dismay at how divided #Washington has become as lawmakers retreat to entrenched partisan positions that leave little room for compromise or common ground.

And it all took place when the Republicans let an utter douche become not only their primary presidential candidate, but also let it happen to him becoming the president of the United States, although it could be seen clearly he was unfit to serve due to his mental derangement. They let it happen, openly, because they didn't see their responsibility in this situation. Thank the #GOP for this man, and the senate's state of the art. It was caused by Donnie and irresponsible #... Show more...
some kind of nut

Acrylic Paint

I finished this acrylic painting of an antique gramophone just in time to give it away as a Christmas gift.
I'm learning how to paint with acrylics and the challenging part of this painting was figuring out how to portray a metal object. I also had to fix some ghastly white highlights on the gramophone (I painted large, solid white highlights straight from the tube in true beginner fashion).
Acrylic painting is fun but I do not know all of the tricks so painting tips are welcome!

Trump made a 7 year old's #Christmas Eve

“The way he used it … I’m not sure exactly what he meant by it. It’s an interesting use of language,” Mr. Lloyd told BuzzFeed. “That conversation was a tad awkward over the rest, but I didn’t have an issue with any of that.”
“I’m a teacher. I’m OK with the vocabulary,” Mrs. Lloyd said. “He was very kind. I was very impressed with the phone call.”
“It made her Christmas,” she added.

Glad to hear Donnie managed to not ruin someone's life, regarding the two children whose lives he has ended with his border policy.

On Donnie's question to a 7 year old who still believes in Santa

Following Drumpf's line of questioning, Rather hit the president over his stance on climate change, questioning which was more "marginal:" The belief in Santa Claus after the age of 7, or not believing in man-made climate change and its effects on the world.
"Just a thought: Which should be considered more 'marginal' - believing in Santa at age 7 or not believing in climate change at age 72?" Rather tweeted.

Drumpf made headlines in November when he rejected a report detailing the effects of climate change drafted by scientists in his own administration, pointing instead to America's air and water, which the president referred to as at a "record clean."
