"Hold my beer" is a good example.
Elizabeth Windsor, the “Queen” of England has finally died, aged 97, having “reigned” for 70 years.
The wanton destruction and killing by Putin's armies in the Ukraine has shocked the civilised world. Here in Europe we believed this type of thing was all in the past.
