Away But FOAB Keeps Going

President Obama has admitted that US crossed the line and tortured people and a man makes the ultimate protest against Lloyd's bank by defecating in the middle of the banks floor.
Throw in Israel and Gaza and the continuing actions to isolate Russia, the English topping the Commonwealth Games medal table and the Ebola outbreak, the next few weeks would have been some interesting times for a blogger but not for this one because this blog will be left on automatic until the end of August as i go off on holiday.
What i have done is write some blog posts and put them on schedule to post themselves everyday from the 4th until the 25th August.
The posts are taking real life incidents from this day in history and my view of them as if they were happening today and what my honest view would have been then on that day ignoring hindsight or knowledge of how it ended which wasn't easy, the temptation to make some smart alec quip about future events meant quite a few rewrites.
Unfortunately, from August 4 to Aug 25 wasn't the most exciting time in World history but posts include the first and second World Wars, Ancient Egypt, the Russian Revolution, several deaths of famous figures and moments in the Space Race.
It might all go horribly wrong and i will hold my hand up for any historical inaccuracies but if the Blogger scheduling works as it should, the posts will go up each day until i return on the 26th.
Hope everyone has a good summer and see you all at the other end of August.
