Re: "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" Afghanistan

JH thanks for pointing out the mistake - the comment still stands about the current theocratic government of Afghanistan which few months ago kicked out the previous one. A very lightweight comment in my view. You are just right: your view hence no need to answer. In my view you can't dislike peopl...

Re: "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" Afghanistan

Talibans hate the West but love dollars, Euros, medical supplies and food stuff from the West. Not really a decent balanced approach. I am wondering how they would behave is assistance was delivered by all female crews dressed in summer light clothing.

There is a great dish in Greece which I can't remember the name of (RiS?) Beetroot with garlic potato or bread. You piss red afterwards.
It is called skordalia, I think. I make very clear a dish of this delicacy and myself are to be in a different room.

Re: Millions of us might be **** if we ignore the Russian-Ukraine war

Yes, but it was a damn close run thing in '62, don'tcha think? And just because of their nature and balance of power were not used. So it is a rather effective weapon to own. The EU put too much of natural gas on its energy basket and was happy to overtax the carbon to please the Greens and the NGO...

Re: Looking for a new home (=country)

I don't like to spend too much time on a Greek ship to an island hence my preference for island closer to the mainland.

I noticed a piece about Ex-A's favourite Greek island just ignore the text.

ExS, you might have landed in this tight expanse of water as someone said previously.

Re: MD-82 Gear Collapse and Fire at Miami

Plenty of hand baggage coming off there. Anyone taking off hand baggage in an emergency vacation is endangering the other passenger's lives. They should face imprisonment. On one side I agree with you....however....I have my whole life and my business on my laptop. It goes EVERYWHRERE with me.... I...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread V

Somewhat a difficult morning. I went to the pool and did about 1.5 km. Then went to a local pharmacy, was tested (believing it was not-necessary) and before I had time to wait for the result I got the news I wasn't expected. Then I had an issue with the local Belgian owned food store. Returning home...

Re: Looking for a new home (=country)

Provided you like to live by the sea on islands there are two choices that come to my mind: The isles of Aegina off the coast of Athens with frequent services to the capital harbour if a medical visit is needed. Also Sporades island complex is an excellent choice. Obviously Ex-As can tell you what i...

Bad luck, mate. Hope it's a mild case.

22° here last night but 75% humidity. Still no storms.
I am still not sure about since last week I had a part of the office air conditioning blowing on my back which was wet with sweat. I would take a test in a pharmacy.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread V

Good morning members. Since yesterday I have a sore throat and some minor cough. I am taking a covid test with the result it started 10 minutes ago and there is a single solid red line - for the time being... Edited to add 25 minutes after the first drops were placed on the sensor there is a strong ...

UP I know plenty of gas stations around my place say about 10 Km but only a couple of charging spot one of which is really poorly designed.

What has your ad hominem attack got to do with the topic Mr BOAC? Silly or otherwise. What do you want to know about electric cars? We have discussed before but I would only get it when I have full use of an electric car: the anxiety range particularly as there are in general fewer charging point t...

Up early, managed to get some lenghts in the pool before disucssing various culinaries and political issues with a nice lady.

Paid the electricity bill for RiS dad and myself.

Nice warm weather with enough clouds to make wearing sunglasses a random gaime.
