  1. Why are you happy today?

    Tomorrow morning - a 2:50 hrs flight & we are on Ibiza for 11 nights...   We are exhausted from packing (out of practice).
  2.   ...Zwiebelrostbraten...
  3. I think you are going to have to be a little more precise about WHERE.  Munich is rather large (at least it was when I was last there).
  4. Business compliance: gifts from suppliers

      I would second that warning.  Its said that if any company wants to get rid of a salesman or manager they only have to examine his last expense claim or two & will surely find something (many managers don't have the time to do expenses & get their secretary / assistent to do the task for them).   I was neither in sales nor had a management position but I was very careful with expense reports.
  5. Brexit: The fallout

      Sounds as he is prepared to be "ditched"!!   I remember the late lamented Dave Allen saying that he had a soft sport for politicians - an Irish Bog.
  6. Suggestions please for warm November getaway

    Not the Balearic Islands in November - usually OK in September & dodgy in October. (In one week's time we will have just arrived on Ibiza...)   Probably not much alternative to Canary islands.  Egypt & co are even further away.
  7. Brexit: The fallout

    Amphibious alternative to Rat casserole:  Toad-in-the-hole!
  8. Brexit: The fallout

      One vegetarian dish would be Ratatouille...   (I'll get my rat-skin coat).
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    Werll, the globe is over-populated but thats another subject & not directly related to Brexit...
  10. Brexit: The fallout

      Where is all that money supposed to come from nowadays?
  11. Financial ombudsman - does Germany have one?

    Seems that you need to talk (even if its a bit late)  to @Starshollow
  12.   To be honest similar happens here - in darkest Niedersachsen (where my club has held its Sommerlager in past years) every two hours would be a good frequency! Nice peaceful area - as long as you are able to drive as the next Supermarket is a 20 minute drive away.  Once you are past driving live gets difficult.
  13. Mobile roaming charges on the Channel ferry

    Does one really have to be "online" every minute of the day & night?
  14. Brexit: The fallout

    Our local newspaper ran this cartoon yesterday - but in colour...
