In a lot of Pacific War histories, Guam is swept aside and banished as insignificant. How soon they forget, many might say. In Tokyo, soundtrucks festooned with World War II colors still extol those lost in a gallant defeat. In America, elders like Louis H. Wilson Jr. and George Tweed would never forget.

UK enters ‘new chapter’ outside European Union as Brexit transition period ends https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/31/uk/uk-eu-end-brexit-transition-period-intl/index.html
Love is warm, and I’ve warm water, coming through the tap,But water heaters break, and so warm water do I lack, Cold water’s not so nice, but soon no water do I have, For all thing’s ‘spire in the end, and soon I have no lav’, No food or clothes that comfort me; I am a dreadful mess, And all the things I did depend, of them I’ve less and less, We think that we can well depend on this and this and that, But all that we depend upon, I ask: “Where is it at?”It has eroded, gone away, in time too so The Earth, And even what’s eternal goes; no more the second birth,’ Til all we see and know of which we all were so aware, And I am so alone, and into nothing do I stare, When all goes blank, but at that moment I can not conceive, For nothing, nothing it is left; there is no come or leave.
These easy lines so easy from this happy, tippy board, Excruciating processes are all we can afford, Awful and so terrible that words can not express, And centuries, millennia, a moment does compress, Starvation, plague combine, with wars that are within, without, Where nothing preps for nothing, “Needles! Darkness,” do I shout.
An eternity of sufferings and nothing lasts not long, Except forever, and forever, infinitely strong. Will sheer awareness then “emerge,” and what will happen then? Warm water bubbles in, and someone wonders where it’s been.

— “I had spent an hour in the bank with my dad, as he had to transfer some money. I couldn’t resist myself & asked…
”Dad, why don’t we activate your internet banking?”
”Why would I do that?” He asked…
”Well, then you won’t have to spend an hour here for things like transfer.
You can even do your shopping online. Everything will be so easy!”
I was so excited about initiating him into the world of Net banking.
He asked ”If I do that, I won’t have to step out of the house?
”Yes, yes”! I said. I told him how even grocery can be delivered at door now and how amazon delivers everything!
His answer left me tongue-tied.
He said ”Since I entered this bank today, I have met four of my friends, I have chatted a while with the staff who know me very well by now.
You know I am alone…this is the company that I need. I like to get ready and come to the bank. I have enough time, it is the physical touch that I crave.
Two years back I got sick, The store owner from whom I buy fruits, came to see me and sat by my bedside and cried.
When your Mom fell down a few days back while on her morning walk. Our local grocer saw her and immediately got his car to rush her home as he knows where I live.
Would I have that ‘human’ touch if everything became online?
Why would I want everything delivered to me and force me to interact with just my computer?
I love to know the person that I’m dealing with and not just the ‘seller’. It creates bonds of Relationships.
Does Amazon deliver all this as well?”’
Technology isn’t in life.
Spend time with people .. Not with devices.”
