Hi Lynne - have just noticed your message. Looks as if the deep freeze is still on for most of Canada even now in early March. Only rain for us here on west coast, thank goodness.

I wanted to post the CBC program about the life of Paul Robeson:


Wondering if Putin is going to start a third world war about Ukraine. As Obama said, the days of Empire building belong to the past. Well, we shall see.

Take care.  ;- )
