It’s not easy to visit Antarctica, one of the world’s cruellest and most desolate environments, but it sure is worth it. Watching great swarms of penguins huddling together, stumbling through blizzards or nose-diving into the bone-chilling water is just astonishing. The smoky grey fluff-ball chicks don’t waddle far from the safety of their parents, but visitors to Antarctica on a cruise can spot them without too much difficulty. And it’s not only penguins - great big albatrosses whirl through the iron sky, far seals sprawl on the water’s edge and whales breach the surf. Abercrombie & Kent offer a luxury 14-night Classic Antarctica Cruise from £10,300 per person, including full-board accommodation, excursions and domestic flights. [Photo: Pexels]
Dumb Okie: It took a conservative to break the ice with Russia. Nixon did it. It took a southerner to pass civil rights legislation. Lyndon Johnson did it. It took a strong conservative to reset with Communist China. Nixon again. It will take someone from the Republican party to wake the Black community from their democrat party hypnosis. Lets all (except the pro politicians) hope that Trump is the guy. Racial strife will never cease until Blacks are no longer kept in the victim state the Democratic Party keeps them in.
