So just whois this “hro001”, you might be wondering! Well, my name is Hilary Ostrov – a British born and proudly Canadian bred cat-lover! I’m old enough that I can remember the days when discussions amongst civilized people were not infected by the virus of “political correctness”. As a Bridgeplayer, I’ve always believed in calling a spade a spade!
I have never been known to suffer fools gladly – particularly Israel-bashers and/or Holocaust deniers, to whom I now give fair warning: thanks for visiting, but please don’t waste your time or mine by attempting to recycle your drivel here.
Politically, I’ve never been particularly partisan (at least not to the extent of being a card-carrying member of any political party). But these days, I’d say that I’m probably an independent who leans towards conservatism.
What can you expect to find if you choose to subscribe my blog?
I consider this to be my quiet little corner of the blogosphere where I shall post various and sundry musings and missives on current events and news stories that strike my fancy (or annoy me!). The “climate change” wars are a very recently acquired interest; other matters that you can expect to see me comment on include my concern about the increasing influence of Islamism – and the consequent increased demonization of Jews, Judaism and/or the State of Israel.
If you are interested in my virtual history, please feel free to visit my personal (but very outdated!) website
