@Wolkenkrabber I'm not sure what Robots have to do with Easter (ok, I'm not a Christian, so what do I know) but I'll try to pick those up when I'm in London in March ;D

As soon as we've finished celebrating the birth of Christ, it's straight on to celebrating his death! There were easter eggs in the shops before we even rang in the new year. This year M&S (Marks & Spencer) have chocbots amongst their over-priced easter chocolate range (ironic that the pic says Money Saving Central). And hey, fair play to Smith & Lyall + The Chems. They've made tin toy robots their own 'brand' to the extent that as soon as I see one, I think: Chems.

I think Chems as well whenever I see a robot!

We tend to blow through the holidays at breakneck consumerism speed in the States so Valentine's Day candy was out directly after Christmas, and Easter candy is starting to pop up more on shelves. A store here, Target, started carrying Marks & Spencer holiday goodies for Christmas (shortbread 'cookies' in double decker bus shaped tins, chocolate lollipops sealed in the Union Jack foil, stuff like that) so I'll be curious if we get the M&S branded sweets for Easter this year... 🤔

But yeah like Stefan said not sure what chocolate robots have to do with Easter, haha! 
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.



longer version (I think I prefer the short):


IT'S MORNING TIME!


Assuming that Neuralink will eventually succeed in developing a computer/brain interface (bold claim, considering Musk's track record of bloated and overblown marketing claims for technology he's trying to sell), the devices will be used to stream Twitter, oh sorry X, advertisments directly into brains long before any useful medical device will be even in a prototype state.

Dear Outlook,
Thank you for this really, really helpful auto-correction.

Eurovision just opened with HBHG!  :o

It's a year already since Eurovision kicked off with HBHG?

Well now that the Netherlands have been sent home, it's Croatia v Ireland for the title tonight. Or so I've read.
Ireland used to be the kings/queens of Eurovision but haven't won since the '90s.
The last time Ireland won, it sounded ike this:


This years entry sounds like...this  ::krazy 

IT'S MORNING TIME!

Oh good, we didn't win. 
I'm sick of that song, it's so overplayed here. 
I can hit cheeky lizards if I want!

Didn't expect that comment! Since Croatia's (most recent) inception in 1991(?) you haven't won or hosted the competition. Could be a good tourist advert.
As for the song, well it nearly won! Second is as close as it gets. The song seemed kinda fun and whacky - perfect for a not-so-serious song contest. Does "Rim tim tagi dim" translate to anything in English?
IT'S MORNING TIME!

It's nonsense, that part, doesn't mean anything.
It's a good choice for Eurovision, it's not a bad song but so overplayed it puts Get Lucky to shame.
If it won they would have made it national anthem  ;D
