Remember the days of ‘Duck and Cover! Drills’…?

Growing up during the Cold War it was always a worry that “the bombs” would drop any minute and we would all have to “duck and cover” in order to survive – that is, if we weren’t in the blast radius of the explosion we might stand a chance at surviving by practicing ducking and covering under our desks if at school…  But the real worry was the radiation – the fallout – from the bombs after they had exploded…

Once again, unfortunately, it is time to dust off the instructions and get them to all the schools in the nation on ducking and covering should the air raid sirens come to life within the next four years…

As Trump continues his war of words with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un the bomb-shelter business is seeing a rise in their bottom line…  Nowadays, bomb shelters are referred to as “survival shelters”…  In Japan there is an intense demand now for such shelters…

Let’s hope cooler [and smarter] heads prevail to pull us back from the brink of disaster of the nuclear kind…!
