Nothing broken! Also, no dishes done. However, tomatoes have been sprayed for caterpillars, so that's something.

Beaitifully written story in the Sydney Morning Herald today, on the disaster that was Yitzhak Rabin's assasination. (http://www.smh.com.au/world/yitzhak-rabins-assassination-proved-a-perfect-way-to-kill-arabisraeli-peace-20151030-gkmqnq) I remember hearing the news: I had the radio on in the shower and was drying myself off when the bulletin came on. I felt as though I had been punched in the stomach, and sat on the side of the bath and cried, because I could feel the hope that had been so cruelly and stupidly extinguished, and because a genuinely good man had been cut down by a fool. It's hard to believe it was 20 years ago tomorrow. I still miss him.

I remember when Anwar Sadat was assassinated, too. And Kennedy. Yes, older than dirt here. The loss of whatever future might have been if not for some misguided idiots with weapons. When Kennedy was shot, it felt like the world just stopped for three whole days. I will never forget that.
