The festive season approached suddenly: Christmas, New Year, Biblical Magi.

Isn’t that a great side effect to unemployment?
In the meantime, since we still have electrical power, which enables access to internet we can share some content with you. There’s a conversation with Stuhr Senior, a colourful choice of old Polish medicament pamphlets, leśmian song by Katarzyna Zdanowicz-Cyganiak, and much more.
