58,200 :D

I remember how to do it - but not very quick yet

My score does not register on the system, probably something to do with my system :(

I have never celebrated Halloween in my life :D For people of my generation, this feast was absolutely unknown in France, until Harry Potter -mania.

As Christmas, which is a English importation slowly adopted by French during the 20th century.

    Round about the cauldron go;
    In the poison'd entrails throw.
    Toad, that under cold stone
    Days and nights has thirty-one
    Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
    Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.


    Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the cauldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
    Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.


    Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
    Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
    Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
    Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
    Liver of blaspheming Jew,
    Gall of goat, and slips of yew
    Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,
    Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,
    Finger of birth-strangled babe
    Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
    Make the gruel thick and slab:
    Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
    For the ingredients of our cauldron.

    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.


    Cool it with a baboon's blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good.

    O well done! I commend your pains;
    And every one shall share i' the gains;
    And now about the cauldron sing,
    Live elves and fairies in a ring,
    Enchanting all that you put in.

    By the pricking of my thumbs,
    Something wicked this way comes.

    ME :ymdevil:

Most of us use small cauldrons ;)

Eye of newt, toe of frog and such like are code words for what we actually use, William Shakespeare must have known a lot about witchcraft 8-}

60,620 there was something else I intended to do =))

The situation in Kurdistan seems as though it is becoming even more confusing

If I find it confusing at times, I wonder what the general public in America and Europe think about it :-s

For that reason, some French and Belgian followers on Facebook asked me to explain it, and that is the reason of my political papers (I stopped them when I left France, after 10 years of service in the Institut Kurde).

When I read the press I can just roll my eyes… Some take as reference the opinion of a pro Arab analyst, an other interviewed a pro PKK Kurd from Turkey who does not know much about KRG, etc.

And they repeat as parrots AFP, Reuters, AP agencies, which employed more people from the Arab area if I count all the 'FAYSHKHABUR' I read on Internet…

Twitter makes it worse with all the fake accounts, fake news and fake photos (some out of date or wrong country, some photoshop)

'FAYSHKHABUR' (behind the river) now seems to have at least 10 different spellings :-s

I think I trust Rudaw the most :ymapplause:

Firat often has interesting news - I do not think it actually ever lies - it just twists things around to make the PKK look good

I keep trying to find reliable people to follow on Twitter =))

I have a serious problem with Pirouette. :sad:

Since Papillon is 4 months, she dislikes him and refuses now to enter in the house because he lives there. She only comes to eat at dinner and went.

The other problem is that if I have to come back to France, I will stay in a studio (26m2) and I am afraid she will be mad to not go outside as she used to, especially with Papillon in the same room.

But leaving her as a stray cat again is cruel. So that's a terrible dilemma ifI have to leave.

That's 1 problem among the 1000 tuns of shit fallen on my head.

Not one of your better days then :-s

Your family still live in the countryside - if you have to return to France could Pirouette live with your family?

All my family have cats or dogs already.

If she is there the day I leave, I might try.
