Queen Elizabeth II has passed from this cruel world, so now we get King Charles the Somethingth. I can't remember which Charles we're up to.
Unless he abdicates in favour of one of his kids. Unlikely. He's been waiting his entire life to get the crown so... I guess we see what kind of king he is.
The Muppet had nuclear secrets spread out on his hotel floor in Mar-a-lago. Lovely. Including other nations' nuclear secrets.

The good news, such as it is, is that I am nearly finished making samples. I'm including my WIPs because preparedness is sibling to organisation.

For now, there's one more story.
