FFS (Everyday) is an original watercolour painting on paper.

FFS is an acronym for the term “For Fuck’s sake” and is used on an everyday basis by a large number of people, and usually for good reason.

With a lot of incompetence in the world, it is the competent’s “go to” phrase to describe their fellow human without resorting to violence.

The summer solstice, or midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis, or geographical pole on either its Northern or its Southern Hemisphere, is most greatly inclined toward the star that it orbits. In Earth’s case, that star is the Sun.

Own the original painting, Summer Solstice, June 21 2018 here.

The summer solstice occurs during the hemisphere’s summer. This is the June solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the December solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between June 20 and June 22 in the Northern Hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 each year in the Southern Hemisphere. The same dates in the opposite hemisphere are referred to as the winter solstice.

As seen from a geographic pole, the Sun reaches its highest altitude of the year on the summer solstice. The colloquial term “midsummer” refers to the day on which the solstice occurs. The summer solstice day has the longest period of daylight, except in the polar regions, where daytime remains continuous for 24 hours every day during a period ranging from a few days to six months around the summer solstice.

Singapore hosts a summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in what could be an historic move towards peace on the Korean peninsula.

Don’t be fooled into thinking this is the beginning of world peace, however. Shit continues in several other warzones around the globe.

But hey, better than nothing.

Another day, another food revelation…or not.

So then. Eggs cannot kill you. Well, not unless you load a civil war musket with an egg of the hard boiled kind and fire it at point blank range into…

Well, you get my point.

No. Eggs now come jam packed (actually protein packed) with all that good fat instead of that awful bad fat those old eggs used to be laid with.

Bastard hens.

Anyway, bottom line, Eggs are good for you.

Spring Has Sprung

Which spring do you consider the real spring?

Astronomical or Meteorological?

March 1st is the logical choice for me. The clue is in the word. Not to mention it’s tidier than March 21st or such like.

Twelve months, four seasons. Twelve divided by four equals three. Three months per season. March, April, May is spring.

Perfection.
