Today's Air Raids...
Berlin by RAF Bomber Command
Netherlands on German airfields RAF Bomber Command
V-Weapons Sites, Northern France by US 8th Air Force and RAF 2nd Tactical Air Force
Orvieto, Colleferro, and military targets in Italy by US 12th Air Force
Aviano, Verona, and Ferrara, Italy by US 5th Air Force
Maloelap Atoll, Wotje Atoll, Kwajalein Atoll, and Mille Atoll by US 7th Air Force
Shortland Islands military targets by US 13th Air Force
Cape Gloucester and military targets on New Britain by US 5th Air Force
Rabaul, New Britain by US 13th Air Force and US AirSols, inflicting particularly heavy losses of Japanese aircraft
The situation of both the Luftwaffe and the Imperial Japanese Air Force from this point becomes impossible. Allied aircraft and pilots are now being produced in numbers that far exceed Axis production. Consequently they are being overwhelmed in air battles with losses that cannot be matched by replacements. The Allies now have air superiority and will soon in many theatres of war be completely unchallenged.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Daughter, our relationship now very dead, continues to haunt my life! This time it's due to the final breakdown of her relationship with Son, and Daughter attempting to use Missus as a tool and consequently upsetting her. Stopping short of intervening, I have had to reassure Missus that she has done nothing wrong.
My policy is that if Daughter begins to make Missus ill, at that point I will reluctantly step in and separate them. What I had considered as just a particularly awful puberty is now I believe more than that - it is a paranoia-based mental illness carried down both paternal and maternal lines that affects the females.
Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it. I can only safeguard the wellbeing of the remaining family. I have to accept how it is and respond accordingly. Though still sad about it, I feel I'm "all cried out" and eager to get on with my life.

the legendary lover Casanova used linen condoms.

Ultimately, our battle is with ourselves. Whether in our activities in
society, or whether in historical, political or economic developments,
everything essentially boils down to a struggle between positive and
