  1. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    So Hamburg is currently winning..a local animal protector had a phone call tip yesterday and found SIX puppies alive (barely ) in a rubbish container in the middle of nowhere. Despite its beauty and all the rest of it, we can´t handle that any more...never ending story. I´m flying to Hamburg in March to deal with some bureaucracy eg Brexit and to start getting a feel for where we want to be. There´ll be  a lot to wrap up here but we have to.  
  2. Brexit: The fallout

  4. Brexit: The fallout

    It is indeed, hellfire! And the things the Brits and French couldn´t agree upon over a cup of tea...  
  5. Brexit: The fallout

    Bits moving to York etc. Sounds like the moans about EU  politicos  and Brussels and Strasbourg moving around! Put all the politicians under one roof and hope for an Act of God!

  9. Thanks,Janx! My clip ended suddenly... More on  this great man:  
  10. I still find this description " woman of color " strange. When I was growing up in England, there was often this casual racism " loads of " them coloureds " around here now " (meant offensively ), " Coloured " was an apartheid term in South Africa and I even remember watching a football match on German TV about 25 years ago and was horrified to hear a commentator referring to a black player as " der farbige Spieler." Have we moved forwards or backwards??? If " women of colour " find it fine, ok, I´m fine...but I find it strange.
