Really? That long?

Have I really not posted on the blog since October?
Alright, I did drop working on the future in favor of going back to prehistory. But I recently decided to switch back to the present and work on current events some.
I am not working much on the far future or middle future. The near future is being connected. I don’t have much for the next 5 years. Within the next year, the major anticipated event is the US 2020 Presidental election. President Trump is already campaigning for re-election. On Sarah Hoyt’s blog, one of the commenters referred to the crowded field last election cycle, and mentioned 76 Unknowns. It seems appropriate. I didn’t even try following this last time, but the Knowledge Base has developed enough that I can give it a try this time.
Looking ahead in the next month, Brexit negotiations and another Summit meeting between President Trump and North Korea are anticipated.
Modern history is being connected to more cities. For the 20th century I am reviewing Asiatic peoples, and for the early 21st century I am reviewing Latin peoples. The late 2010s are being connected to cities.
Current events, those of 2019, are a month behind. So far, there are references to earlier events in the 20th century, since World War II, and I will be looking into these a little. The connections to nations and peoples are not yet very broad. Western Civilization is dominated by Anglic peoples. So far, political events in the United States are getting most attention, followed political events in Venezuela. I will be looking deeper into both religion and government, although government has more associated events.
I wanted to go to LTUE again this year, but car repairs this last fall were too costly and ate my savings. I have also not put much attention into creative endeavors, so I don’t have as much to show as I wanted. Hopefully I can go next year.
