No problem.

I got my first "worried about you over there" email yesterday so I guess it's started making the rounds on international news. It was my stepdad and he was comparing it to experiences he had in Vietnam when something similar happened during the war, haha.

It probably sounds really dramatic, but if you're not hanging out in one of the protest areas you'd never notice anything was afoot. My wife was complaining at the news last night because it was about Park dragging her feet on moving haha

Ukraine has banned Russia's singer Yuliya Samoylova from entering the country, will perform by satellite feed

Ukraine should be stripped of the contest and barred from entry for a certain period. This is acting against everything Eurovision is about, is trying to manipulate the result, blatantly political and will ruin what should be a special week for Yuliya Samoylova. Eurovision's response is pathetically weak

and Russia has had to pull out since none of the pathetically weak compromises offered by Eurovision authorities are going to help. Ukraine and hatred have one, the spirit of Eurovision has lost and the craven authorities are doing nothing about it bar little words

If we ever win Eurovision, just bar anyone with a strong entry to increase our chances of winning. The authorities will clearly let us fix the tournament in our favour judging by this

Not Europe related, but here in the states I thought I'd share a good news article, sicne at times thigns seem so grim.

An Indiana woman had a $30k wedding called off, but rather than letting it all go to waste she threw a dinner party for the homeless instead. Link
