Staycation 2016

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The summer holidays are almost upon us in Britain, and also in other parts of Europe and people may, at present consider as to whether – if they have not booked already – to spend their money to go abroad or to rather vacation at home. In view of the “aftermath” of the vote of the British people to leave the European Union and the subsequent fall of Sterling vacationing in the UK or at home at home, so to speak, might be a good option.

Walt Whitman Leslie Wu of Forbes Magazine beat my tagline today in wishing you a Happy New Year: Says Wu: “ Although we’ll be ringing in the year of the fire monkey for Chinese New Year in February, it could be said that 2016 will be the year of the cat…Cat cafes are springing up across Canada, where those lacking feline companionship can reserve time with these most reserved of creatures. “ Do I contradict myself?
