Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

That voting was all bloody complicated. RiS yes I had a prepared voting paper but it was discussed. We personally know everyone we have voted for. Given 40 f...ing papers for the European election. Took me ages to find the blank one. Four booths in four different rooms four different boxes in each r...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Sitting with one of our councilers. Told him that we are not letting him near any rope. The intention to go down to vote early went out of the window with raki. Breakfast beer then we will go. RiS you do not get a hangover with raki. As you know ouzo is the killer. Now this is all a bit complicated....

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Raki time, nothing but politics being spoken. We are with one main council candidate and one local one. They both have our votes.

Discussed dinner with chef. Tagliatelli with smoked salmon agreed.

Very early visit to the polling station in the morning.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Morning folks. All the candidates for the elections have illegally obtained voting papers and are handing them around advising where to put crosses. We do not mind as some of the names are complicated. You discreetly take your illegal copy into the booth and swap it for the one given to you. We are ...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Ibbie I have not mentioned ellie hunting to the Admiral but did mention shooting frogs. He just laughed and said that there is a village down the other end of the island where there are more frog holiday homes than locals. We had surveyors in our hamlet this morning for the next frog project. It is ...

Re: Rant of the Day v2.

Not a rant but a comment about elections. Here there is no box for your cross. It has to be a + not a × or a tick. It has to be to the left of the name and exactly in the middle of the name. Anything else it is thrown out. Little old folk with shaking hands do not stand a chance. Neither do I after ...

The only thing I can remember about that place is our 16 year old guide in a bikini taking us on a tour climbing hot waterfalls. I was right behind her. :ymdevil:

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Morning folks. Yes indeed Ibbie. The President is coming up for election and the farmers want ellie numbers reducing. We are hoping that it is going to be controlled. Not American idiots blasting away all over the place. People will be killed. In areas where there used to be hunting the ellies are v...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

At our evening raki place. A friend painting his place with spray paint involving a noisy compressor. Little kid just walked past with fingers in ears. Election fever continues. Big argument about a new road we have been against for 20 years. We will concentrate on getting the Admiral back in then a...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Morning folks, town day but Maun is a bit far so just phoned it. Apparently winter is yet to arrive. It is waiting to get freezing for our return. We seem to be swamped with Americans. Unusual. Nice day now. Must speak to chef about lunch. Edit, the Americans are a group of artists. Fish and chips f...

Try Amazon.de who will no doubt deliver to \Greece, you can then hand carry to Bottie.
Thanks Wodders, they do indeed have the right one in stock. The problem is we won WWII so I do not speak German. But we do have folk here who do.

You do not declare a Mayday for a sick passenger this is abuse of the protocol. Anyway I am now squawking 7700. We have sewage flowing down the street next to my chair. They are working on it but it is very smelly.

Re: The Smokin' Hot Where On Earth Thread Mk III

Tolouse, just guessing given your background. Had to pick a new aircraft up from there with the chief pilot once. I had about five minutes in the sim and had no idea what I was doing.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Ex-A, to bring the discussions of Life of Brian and mayors together, did you know that Brian's (naked) girlfriend in LoB went on to become Mayor of Aberystwyth? I believe that qualifies as an appropriately boring and pointless snippet. No didn't know, but Brian was 'a very naughty boy' being with h...

How long will you have at Jan Smuts/Joburg Intl/O R Tambo Airport on your way back to Bots? There is a Makro 7.4km from there. 2 hrs in transit and will be too busy with fizzy stuff. Trying to get one to here failing that we have a SA friend in Bots who sells kitchen equipment. He may be able to ge...
