    If there are any single ladies, please let me know ;)
    Organoleptic properties :) Man, I had never heard that word organoleptic until your post. If ever able to go to in-person social gatherings again, I'm going to ask a lady her thoughts about the Organoleptics of the food offerings :) I will be sure to give correct academic citations...

    I'd offer you a .22 rifle to handle the squirrels, but the lunatic shooter in Novy Scotia probably has caused all kinds of havoc in Canada (you are on the other coast, IIRC). But for the record, squirrels do offer nutrition when food is in short supply.

    Here "organoleptic" is an usual word on the news, in the reports of the state agencies involved in checking the quality of food.

    First, you would have to pass three tests. ;)

    What do you guys think of this Polish TV show:

    https://www.netflix.com/title/81221644

    The production quality is amazing. I watched it all in the original Polish with subtitles, not silly English translation version.

    Also watching:

    Paulina Andreeva is amazing (the stuff of dreams ;)

    Three tests? This sounds like a biblical, Old Testament kind of challenge :) Anyway, I would probably fail all kinds of tests.

    Subs are OK, the voiceover is not.

    The promotional video for the Rojst series... has little to do with the series, but features one of the great voices of current Poland singing one of the anthems of early 1980s:

    There are sad news too.
    Today, on 30th of April Colonel Mieczysław Stachiewicz, one of the few surviving Polish WWII RAF pilots, passed away.
    Soldier of the September 1939 campaign, he then escaped internee camp in Romania to join Polish Army in France in early 1940.
    After the collapse of France he evacuated to Britain, where he was referred to pilot school, learning to pilot the Vickers Wellington.
    He flew a total of 33 sorties over Germany and Italy with the 301st Polish RAF Sq.

    After that he finished a course of study in architecture (Liverpool) and remained in Britain.

    3 weeks ago he contracted CoViD-19, while being hospitalized in London (for unrelated causes).
    2 weeks ago the Polish Embassy wrote he was recovering well.

    RIP
