Oh my Ghosh
Excuse me for not writing much today.
I got home to find 'Er Indoors, Our Kid and a couple of visitors from the in-law tribe sitting without electricity. Since 10 o'clock this morning it had been disconnecting at shorter and shorter intervals but, of course, they had done nought to remedy the situation.
I immediately sent emissaries to the local hardware shop to buy replacement fuses. If everything is OK, you can read this. If not .......
Actually there's nothing I can report which my online colleagues haven't already done.Bart's Expat Newsletter
carries two links about this morning's force 6.8 earthquake
with an epicenter 190 kilometers west of the coastal town of Sibolga in West Sumatra, including one by Arijit Ghosh in Jakarta at Bloomberg. No casualties have been reported.
carries the news that the Corby judges in Bali will re-open her case to hear evidence from many Australians including the owner of the 4.1 kilograms of marijuana found in Corby's bag.
"It was me what done it, Sir. I'm prepared to spend twenty years in a Balinese jail."
Actually, these witnesses will be able to give evidence via video link
as they are already in jail.

I like H which is for hegemony and Halliburton. Hegemony (huh-JEM-uh-nee) is when you're so big and powerful you can do anything you want, like appointing a horse to the Roman Senate or openly handing out billions of dollars in contracts to people everyone knows are your friends. H is also for hubris.
