1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
28th March 1999: The Izbica Massacre
During the Kosovo War, Izbica was considered safe for Kosovo Albanians from neighboring areas to take refuge, partly because of the Kosovo Liberation Army's presence. By 27 March, thousands of Kosovo Albanians from the Drenica region had gathered in Izbica. Most civilians had come after Yugoslav government forces started shelling the surrounding area.
During the night of 27 March, a group of at least fifty Yugoslav soldiers, policemen and paramilitaries entered the village. They wore both camouflage and dark blue or black uniforms, and carried long knives. Some wore ski masks and others had their faces blackened with greasepaint.
On 28 March, nearly all of the adult men fled to the mountains, leaving mostly women, children, and old men in the village. In the field of Izbica, thousands of people were crowded that day, almost all women, children, and old people. Only about 150 men were among them. National security forces threatened to kill the villagers and demanded money. After they got the money, they separated the men from the women and children. Women and children were sent to Albania. The men were then executed with automatic weapons. Some women and old men were also executed.
Villagers who later buried the dead reported counting between 146 and 166 bodies. The Izbica killings were cited in the War Crimes Tribunal's Indictment of Slobodan Milošević and others considered responsible.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I've made Easter a little less relaxed by holding client sessions, but I'm not overly sorry - there will still be plenty of quality time for Son and Missus. With Son having some lads time with mates, horny Missus has already made clear she wishes to take advantage! Tomorrow I will be having my own blokey Lad's Time with Son. It will be his show to organize, so we'll see what he comes up with!
One thing this avatar is never short of is stuff to do! Most of it is enjoyable, and where it does call for effort, the appreciation and recognition I get makes it worth it. Having people love you, trust you and count on you is absolutely the best thing ever!
I've been reminded of a wise maxim - if you really want revenge on those who have harmed you or wish you harm, go on to leave a happy fulfilling life - that's what you rub into their faces. I shall therefore go on to enjoy taking revenge!
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Are you pursuing the things that will actually fulfil you?

John Oliver - The Great Wall of Trump
McDonald’s is the largest purchaser of beef, pork, and potatoes and the second largest purchaser of chicken in the world. Its annual orders for french fries constitute 7.5% of America’s entire potato crop.
9. ZEN WISDOM
The biggest obstacles to our progress exist within our own lives in the form of cowardice and the tendency to give up. Breaking through these barriers will unleash a surging wave of change.
