  1. What are you listening to right now?

      Live version (better): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1Wp2ASqyxI    
  2. What are you cooking today?

    I cooked Pork Chops in Cider again.  Served with boiled rice (Uncle Ben's 20 minute) & peas. The wife says its one of her favourite meals.
  3.   One of my flying pals is in the local voluntary fire brigade. He says they do not attempt to put out fires in electric vehicles.
  4. Brexit: The fallout

    You're most probably correct - but maybe at least the two in the Tower?
  5. Brexit: The fallout

      Mine also - issued January 2018 so its good for some time to come!   (Maybe by the time 2028 comes along Boris & Fromage will both be in the Tower & GB will be back in the club).
  6. A gift to a doctor

      ...and they need to be brushed regularly (the best bit comes at about 2:35):    
  7. I believe a notary would do this (will of course charge for the service).
  8. Then you are better prepared compared to many who post similar themes here.
  9.   The did have enough money to keep it flying - albeit due to a lot of effort.   The Vulcan XH558 ceased flying at the end of 2015 due to the third party companies responsible for maintaining it withdrawing their support. By that time it had 10% more flying hours than any other Vulcan.  They had also used up all the spare engines originally available.   (I grew up close to Woodford aerodrome where the Vulcan was built & maintained).      
  10.   If you listen to John Hutchinson (retired BA Concorde captain) the cause was due to a string of things (as is often the case), starting with the faulty re-assembling of the main left-hand undercart.  The missing part was found on the shelf...    
  11. Brexit: The fallout

      The late lamented Dave Allen once said that he had a "soft spot" for politicians.     ...an irish bog.
  12.   However,  there are numerous offers for vacations (in warmer climes) that are "adult only" i.e. no kids. The reviews in places such as holidaycheck are not negative in this respect.   By "adult only"  there is no indication that anything "smutty" is involved.
  13. Been in there - also the one in Seattle.    
  14. Is Harburg a safe area to live?

    It will get worse - apparently  @john g.  is set to return to Harburg fron Crete!
  15. Inheritance of a joint account

       I'm afraid your assets are frozen as +299 is the Country Code for Greenland.   really?
