Karadžić trial update:

Also Standard and Poor's further downgraded BiH to junk bond status:

Will there be a government in BiH?

It's been at least a year without one!


The Fake Presents For Under The Tree:


Middle of the night here...

People must have been in and out of here. The lady next door has two little dogs. I was warned they can be a bit barky, but this is only so if there are strangers. That is what dogs are FOR!
I mind people who don't belong here coming in and out, not the dogs doing what they do.

So you didn't come here for that, here's some news:

So someone from the Dutchbat is going to testify:

Misli Mine!

A couple of longish opinion pieces:

Kultur Korner:

I watched the 60 minutes interview with Angelina Jolie. The trailer for her film was shown. It's probably on a level with 'Nafaka' your basic cheesy war film only at least Nafaka was local all the way. Even the 'American' is an Afro-Bosnian.

I found the brief 'love scene' in the trailer unpleasant and I am no prude, just did not care for it.

Looks like the actual footage related to the war is decent. I do like that she used Bosnian actors, and filmed in a language she herself does not speak. That is edgy and pretty brave.

I will want to actually see the film before deciding what I think.

Angelina Jolie herself kind of unnerves me.

The original article:

Preview of Angelina Jolie 60 Minutes interview:

Apparently Ms. Jolie leaned rather heavily on someone's book about the war time in BiH.

Trial News:

So Karadžić thinks he deserves a break..?

I don't think so!

In other news, I has my hair cut and I donated it to Locks of Love. It was turning into way too much work. My choices were to go dread, it was trying to dread up on me anyway, buy badly, or to do what I did do.

Christmas Cactus Flower



I put the battery operated candle in s Lemon Sqeeze with the top cut off to make a hole, then put those in a round pot. Then put some pebbles so the candle would stay put. Then I used a small plastic bag. Did something similar with one of those small LED flashlights.
Works very well and eliminates fire hazard .
