Isn’t the war in Ukraine terrible?

Which brings me neatly to Ascension Day. Happy Day after Ascension Day everybody! Yes, Jesus has gone up into space on a rocket propelled cloud and is well into inter-stellar space by now.

And to anyone who thinks I just bolted on the war in Ukraine as a feeble excuse pretending to talk about the news, I’ll remind you that it was Ascension Day in Ukraine too (except the heretical Orthodox sect who don’t celebrate it ’till June 2).
