Another rainy day today Monday. A good day to stay indoors and blog and read and watch Man City lose on the telly. In the news I read that the French are abandoning the word "Madamoiselle" in all official documents. It has always been too sexist and discriminatory against women, after all the men were only " Monsieur." But it is such a beautiful word, madamoiselle, it will be sad to lose it. From now on all women will be "Madame". Apparently they haven't used "Ms."
Another bit of obvious news, in the UK they are going to ban suntanning salons for teenagers,the highest cause of death being skin cancer in this age group. About time all countries did this.
It is hard to guess how it will all end in Syria. But if one looks at the history of Lebanon, maybe they will go the same route eventually as in that country.
