I have no patience when it comes to advent calendars. I can never open just one a day; I need to open them all and as quickly as possible.

If you have an affection for advent calendars like I do, boy, is this list going to be fun. Below is a list of the top advent calendars to give as an early holiday gift or to just gift to yourself.

JOHN HUMPHRYS: My heat pump has me left in the cold… but I’m hot and bothered about the PM

JOHN HUMPHRYS: My heat pump has me left in the cold… but I’m VERY hot and bothered about the PM’s eco-jollity

My first shot at burning down our house was rather less effective than my second. I was a small boy and it was the morning after Bonfire Night.
My mother had popped out and I was bored so I had the bright idea of collecting some of the spent rockets littering the street and throwing them in our fire.

Americans Want To Watch Prices Go Down, Not Biden On CNN

President Joe Biden joined Anderson Cooper on CNN for another one of those gimmicky town halls on Thursday night, and it turns out only a few people watched.
The Biden town hall reportedly drew only 1.2 million viewers, with a meager 271,000 in the key 25 to 54-year-old advertisement demographic — so I guess it was more than a few, but not many more. For comparison, an average 2.83 million people watched Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity on Fox News during the same time slot, more than double the president’s audience. MSNBC’s 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows drew an average of 1.39 million.

Yes, all presidents are busy. But not all presidents make two dozen trips to Delaware over the span of 10 months.
“Do you have plans to visit the southern border?” host Anderson Cooper asked.
Biden said, “I’ve been there before, and I haven’t — I mean, I know it well.

The fate of the planet will be negotiated in Glasgow

Almost every country in the world signed the 2015 Paris climate agreement, a monumental accord that aimed to limit global warming. But it was forged on a contradiction: Every signatory agreed that everyone must do something to address the urgent threat of climate change, but no one at the time pledged to do enough.
In the years since the agreement, the emissions that trap heat in Earth’s atmosphere have continued to rise.
