  1. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    Wildlife returning to Britian's streets..  
  2. Coronavirus

      It is pretty good at preventing some particularly nasty types of meningitis in children.
  3.   Googling suggests only by going the naturalisation procedure.   "I lost my German citizenship because I acquired a foreign nationality. Can I get my German citizenship back?  In principle it is possible for former Germans to be renaturalized. Key conditions include the ability to support oneself, mastery of the German language and proof of ties to Germany. Generally health insurance for Germany is also required. Chances are very much increased by a readiness to relinquish all previous nationalities."
  4. Bought a cat

      But the airport set up is for convenience, flights coming in from multiple places.   Irish and British do not need a passport to travel between the two countries.
  5. Bought a cat

      But you seem to be puzzled as to why there was no "security" between Ireland and the UK (do you mean customs, immigration, or something else?).  This seems to be exposing staggering ignorance on your own part.   The worker at the airport was merely expressing, in admittedly rather simple terms, that in regards to his job, the two countries are regarded as one and the same, as opposed to other countries.   And though I understand your concerns about Covid 19, I found your comments (as did my Irish husband) on complaining about people living on the border having the temerity to cross over it grating.     
  6. Coronavirus

    Matt Hancock also tests positive. 
  7. Why are you unhappy today?

      I understand how people get upset about stuff, but calling barristers unethical for providing a good defence in an adverserial (or other) legal system is misguided.  If you were charged with a crime, would you expect your representative to do less?  Can you give examples of a better system?
  8. Weinstein convicted

      Thank God that is not how things work.
  9. Stop the spread of Moronavirus on Toytown

  10. What are you cooking today?

      Jesus, that has just put me off eating them.  Will freeze until image has gone.  But to be honest, all the farting stuff really ownly happens to people who start eating beans for the first time.  Few weeks later gut bacteria are healthier and happier and react differently.   The farts and excrement from people who eat loads of meat are way more nauseating.  
  11. What are you cooking today?

      I find that sometimes German baked beans the beans are too crunchy.   But I make my own version based on this Grauniad recipe that is similar to the Heinz ones.  I use a pressure cooker so not to long. Overnight soak (using much less salt that suggested) then about 7 minutes once pressure reached then slow release method.   And make a big batch and freeze in portions.  Obvs make other beany things, but my younger son prefers these.  Extra butter and Worcestershire sauce helps too.   Actual recipe at bottom of article.
  12. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

      There are many cancellations.  But from the Heathrow website multiple German and Italian and other European flights arrived this morning and others flagged as "on time" in the next hour or two.   Eurostar also still working, though with limited trains as so many people have cancelled.
  13. Coronavirus

      DB have stopped ticket control on regional trains.  Suspect this is more widespread, but perhaps do not want people to feel confident about it, for obvious reasons.    
  14. Why are you unhappy today?

      There were a lot of conflicting statements from witnesses and from the main accuser. I guess the jury were just not sure enough about it all to convict him.  
  15. Why are you unhappy today?

      8 women, 5 men.
