Bergholt Stuttley Johnson Free

Former Programmer, retired in between. Living in Northrhine-Westfalia, Germany. The Name "B. S. Johnson" I borrowed from my favourite author, Terry Pratchett. In the books he himself never occured, but was referred to as worst architect of the Discworld (somehow similar to ID).

    Nehammer (Austria) and Orban (Hungary) are also – difficult.Erdogan of course. In Germany, the AfD, also a right-wing party gets stronger. Looks like trouble in the future.

    Ah, now it makes sense. Btw.: Using a “Z” in Germany as a political symbol (maybe sprayed on the side of your car) is illegal.

    I don’t really understand. The “Z” is used as a symbol for the russians. Don’t know, if that got around to Australia. ;)

    I think, I got it. Sheaves is the plural of sheaf – written like that, you’ll find it at google. It’s a big bundle of wheat.

    “Sheaves of wheat” is the title of a picture by Vincent van Gogh, about 1890. And yes, if you look at the picture, it may resemble to people – if you’re half blind and not really intelligent.
