  2. Brexit: The fallout

    Improvement in UK car exports fails to offset domestic decline as production falls in January     Surely that will pick right up now that Brexit's got done.
  3. Brexit: The fallout

    I'm tempted to buy this one for HF:
  4. Suicide - would/could you kill yourself?

    One of my mother-in-law's best friends went to Switzerland for AS a few years ago. She was in her late 60s and had been battling on-and-off cancer for 15 years or so. When it came back the 4th time, same type, this time apparently one of those "just a matter of time, now" diagnoses, she had had enough. Didn't even bother with chemo or radiation, went straight to Dignitas for an appointment, which was only a few months later. In the meantime she did intensive traveling to visit her best friends, but didn't even tell most of them what was up. 
  5. Forgot about the pictures, sorry - please see this dropbox folder.
  6. 2 big pillows for sale; 7 EUR is the total price.   - firm - 72x72cm - Model "Inner" by Ikea - can be used as floor cushions, too   The (freshly washed) pillow cases have broken zips so you should probably get new ones. We keep them on to keep the pillows clean. After moving we no longer need them, maybe someone else has some use for them so here they are.   If interested please get in touch via private message was I won't be actively monitoring this thread.   Thanks!
  7. President Donald J. Trump

    Don`t forget the "pray away AIDS" thing too.
  8. President Donald J. Trump

        Oh Dear...   What`s the betting Trump withdraws this lawsuit but not until he`s used it to whip up his base and idiots like J2 at his rallys. Also would he not have to testify under oath,if so I think that`s the last thing he or his advisors  want him to do.   Talking of Trumps advisors and idiots. The is the man Trump unbelievably gave a presidential medal of freedom to..   I`m sure J2 believes this conspiracy implicitly but ffs.
  9. President Donald J. Trump

      The guy who screwed up in the past with the HIV outbreak, same guy who advocated that lung cancer was not linked to smoking,   Yep, good idea.
  10. President Donald J. Trump

    I wasn't sure whether to post this here, or in 'What Made You Laugh Today'...   Trump names VP Pence to lead coronavirus response    
  11. What's got you flummoxed today?

      My counter tops are textured. I wouldn't knead bread dough on them, anyway, as I have a bread board for that.   @Sannerl That was nearly amusing.
  12. Stupid package stuck in customs at Frankfurt airport

    I had the same thing last year a package from USA was held in Frankfurt and the status never changed. I didn't receive any notifications, I didn't have any luck trying to contact someone at the Zollamt. It was like that for six weeks and then the package just turned up with an €8 euro customs charge! Status still says it's stuck in customs. It really is a waiting game!
  13. What's got you flummoxed today?

        You obviously never breathe in the kitchen.  
  14. Stupid package stuck in customs at Frankfurt airport

    No I am afraid that I haven't gotten a note, email or call. The only reason I know the package is in customs is because the US postal service has stated its status as there.
  15. Today
  16. Coronavirus

    Coronavirus cases surge to 400 in Italy    
  17. Why are you unhappy today?

    Thanks everyone. As for the new place; it's idyllic for me (and Shoshanna my cat as I'm surrounded by fields with so many meeces). Obviously there's so much of Sabine here with me and it'll stay that way, but yes, maybe it does help a little to be away from the house we shared in Erding.   Spidey; shower her with ice cream!
  18. Visiting Berlin for the first time in March

    Lab.Oratory is a gay sex club.   Thai Park will not be open in March.  
  19. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Rolling pastry or kneading bread takes place in the Sailor household directly on the counter top.   (Meat / Veg do get chopped on a board)   We survived so far. But then I only clean up with soap / water.  
  20. Only in America...

    Milwaukee shooting: five dead at Molson Coors campus after employee opens fire     This is the 45th mass shooting in the USA, so far this year, and February isn't over yet...
  21. Brexit: The fallout

    Google is your friend : £15.99 when they are finally available   Or, a subscription to the New European - they'll then send you one "for free"
  22.   They can ask to produce it from day one without any reason.  And they can do it for just one person.  Bringing discrimination or bullying ("mobbing") won't work, somebody tried that already and lost the case and there is now one Urteil about it.   Sorry, I made a mistake, the 12 months limit is part of our ETV and not a general law.   I actually didn't know this when I posted previously here.
  23. Only in America...

      So the school called the cops because a 6 yr old had a tantrum ? Then the cop took her away in handcuffs (cable ties) ? OK - he got fired   No minimum age for marriage No minimum age for arresting Serious need to be dragged into the 21st century as regards human rights.   more
  24. President Donald J. Trump

    Oh dear...
