Unlucky For Some

A group of Russians from Saint Petersburg, must have thought their luck was in when they found around a billion roubles in an abandoned mine ..... but sadly for the group it was completely worthless, because it was all in old Soviet money.

One Billion Soviet Roubles .... Worthless Now

The group publish a blog on abandoned sites across Russia, came across the money in an old missile silo near Moscow, buried in Russia's Vladimir region, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. 

One Is A Lonely Number

I was looking around the pub last weekend and suddenly realised that I was stood alone, and that this had become my normal state of socialising for some considerable time.

One Is A Lonely Number .... But More Common These Days?

It was a bit of a shock to realise that I had slowly become a bit of a 'Billy'  (aka 'Billy No Mates'), over the years, and now I had effectively become isolated from my friends and distant family.

They were not native born and bred in the borough, so therefore had deliberately chosen their place of homelessness.

Destroyed By Hollywood

While half watching a very bad movie on the Horror Channel in which Las vegas took a beating from some mystical sword or something .....

The White House Regularly Gets It In The neck ....

This prompted me to think about how Hollywood has destroyed many a city and many of them many times.
