In view of the way things have gone so far, with you know who, I recommend reading the book below, before you get too much older. We live in interesting times, it would seem, and bearing in mind this was written by Daphne du Maurier in 1972, it makes for interesting reading.
Enjoy. I did, once I was nearing the end and realised that it was all going to be OK! Quite a sobering read actually, in between the funny bits.
