@garry n' all I saw dudes from WuHan and other parts of China posting here so might as well try my luck too. For anyone currently in China, would you care to recommend a reliable VPN app that works better than the well-known ExpressVPN which I haven't been able to upgrade from SuZhou for about 2 months... According to online Chinese source, their mirror site has been completely shutdown. I am urgently looking for an alternative. Thanks in advance.

:xmas: (Weihnachts)Stollen :xmas:
Just in case you've to go into a lockdown, it's never too late you use it positively:

https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/nov/25/how-to-make-stollen-recipe-felicity-cloake

And no, Stollen won't be gone after one week, simply put it fully wrapped in a dry, cold place (eg an unheated cellar) so the butter it contains won't get rancid, that's it.
Traditionally a Stollen is kept that way for about two weeks before served! JFTR, I've had one stored that way from late Dec till the beginning of March without a problem. Guten Appetit :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSOjoUq_5tk

PS. Marzipan isn't really used in a traditional Weihnachts-/Christstollen. I doubt that you'll find it that often if checking out German recipes. Nevertheless, Marzipanstollen (without raisins!) is another Stollen variant.
PPS. Feel free to have it with a cup of tea or coffee :)

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (S) had tears in her eyes when she met the press after Thursday's visit to a mink farm near Kolding.
- We have two generations of really skilled mink breeders, father and son, who in a very short time have had their life's work destroyed.
It is important to say that it is not their fault, it is the corona's fault that the profession cannot continue,
it sounded from Mette Frederiksen, as she wiped tears out of the corner of her eye.

Don't really know what this is all about .... but if anyone wants to access BBC or other channels from China (like myself), you probably need a decent VPN www.wallmama.com in order to bypass the Great Firewall of China. I've personally used ExpressVPN for a long time until recently it stopped updating, I saw AstrillVPN recommended by various Chinese sources. Bottom line without such app, you pretty much isolated from the internet.

How to detect if it is a nuclear bomber >> Anti-flash white
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-flash_white
ru :
Some nuclear bombers had the underside of the fuselage painted anti-flash white with the upper surfaces painted light silver-gray.
This was true for the specially fitted, single Soviet Tu-95V bomber that test-deployed the most powerful bomb of any kind – the 50+ MT-rating Tsar Bomba on 30 October 1961
– as it had the anti-flash white on al its undersurfaces and sides
uk :
Anti-flash white was used on the Royal Air Force V bombers force and the Royal Navy Blackburn Buccaneer when used in the nuclear strike role.
us :
Many Strategic Air Command nuclear bombers carried anti-flash white without insignia on the underside of the fuselage with light silver-gray or natural metal (later light camouflage) on the upper surfaces
--
if you see this airplane ( with color Anti-flash white ) ... no problem--- just "Duck and cover" > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMnKNHNfznE

I hope you've been saving your money...

Samsung 110-Inch MicroLED 4K TV
https://hypebeast.com/2020/12/samsung-110-inch-microled-4k-tv-info

Include pictures of the TV in the types of homes that only people that could afford this TV would own. Probably most AutoHotkey forum users.

and has a run time of 100,000 hours (roughly over a decade). [...] This kind of technology does have its disadvantages from a consumer’s point of view as the 110-inch display will cost roughly $156,000 USD
That's a fair an(nu)al $15.6K. Simply add it to your $70K hairstyling ;)
