Re: WTF is happening in the UK?

Post Independence Day, after the New Year festivities are over, we will have control over VAT, as well as so many other things. :-bd :YMPARTY: That reminds me, I really must arrange for my single firework to be made.

Our regular driver said "it's over". Not so sure. Not in Catalunia it isn't, 200,000 back in lockdown.
Now Galicia is in lockdown too.

How long before it spreads to Costa LagerLout?

Re: Coronabollocks..

So all her bluster about quarantining any English visitors from across "the border" was just bullshit, baloney and hot air? Imagine my surprise!

Re: The Most Mellifluous of British Accents?

Many will recall the seductive voice of a lady advertising a chocolate bar. I remember the voice but not the product. Miriam Margolyes. She's practically an aunt, non-biological, to me. I've known her since she played in the Cambridge Footlights at the Fringe in the 1960s ('66?) and stayed in our h...

In St Lucia one Christmas a garden had all the usual bling including a black Father Christmas.
In the Neverlands, Zwarte Piet is also black.

Routine racism, as is also prevalent in what remains of Dutch South Africa.

Re: Andrew to the Tower?

She's got a lot of dirt on a lot of people. Here's she is, with another youngster-loving chum, on Epstein's jet, visiting Andrew. The Fondling Father himself. https://i.postimg.cc/Kcfpd5xr/WhoHe.jpg Where did she recruit that kid in the Andrew photo? Who's place in Florida was that? :-o BTW, I remem...

Re: Covid - 19: How is it affecting you?

Back in Spain via France. Obviously we are in a parallel universe from the various advisory websites. "Passengers arriving in France from the UK will be asked to quarantine themselves for two weeks". Never happened. Not even a sign. "People arriving at the Spanish border are asked to download a for...

As far as Covid numbers go I find this interesting: Cases: USA 2.8 million UK 280,000 Deaths: USA 130,500 UK 44,000 Source:NBC News reports, Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, state government leaders and health officials. Not exactly proportional. :-? Septics don't do maths. The...

Re: Where do the OFSOs go ?

I see that it took 22 months to sell before she bought it. That's almost two years of relatively boom times in real-estate. I don't understand why it was so (relatively) cheap. It's a lot of house and of beautiful land. Wrt what attracted her to it, in her circumstances, I'd guess the name was an ey...

Re: Where do the OFSOs go ?

I've got no mains sewers. A septic (pardon the word) tank with adequate soakaway works just fine. That property has got its own borehole. Very common in rural USA. No problem there either. Sawyer Road looks good to me. In the US, it wouldn't cost much to seal it, especially when you amortise the cos...

It'll be interesting to see how long it takes wee Nippysweetie to fall in line with the list of exempted countries which has been published by the grownups today. She really hasn't got much choice.

I greatly doubt that the Septics would be satisfied with that arrangement.
