  1. Audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing as an agent jokes, “We have an orchestra here.”    
  2.   Muscular rhetoric in defence of separating children from their parents. Why not go the whole hog and change your icon from that mouldy old statue to something more contemporary that celebrates your whole-hearted approval of these actions? For instance this image seems a perfect match for Conquistador.  
  3. Simulating Sitzpinkeln

    How about a flatulent salvo culminating with a spirited "olé!"

  6. Brexit: The fallout

    New Dad's Army stamps could well be Brexit stamps.    Personally, I'm with John Le Mesurier

    Here's a handy guide. Note the end of the scale.    
  10. Apple ID in UK & Germany

    Very helpful, thanks! Five different Apple IDs is quite an achievement.
  11. Apple ID in UK & Germany

    My Apple ID is still set up for the UK Apple store, but I occasionally want to be able to access Apps that are only available in Germany.   In theory it's possible to set up two separate IDs for two countries as long as you have a billing address in both and also as long as you use another email address.   It's all laid out in this article from 2015 https://www.cnet.com/how-to/create-a-second-apple-id-for-downloading-apps-in-other-countries/   However when I get to the screen to sign out, I get the warning that all items in iCloud will be deleted from my iPhone but without the option to keep or delete (as indicated in the article). I'm running iOs 11.4.   My question: has anyone successfully tried this? As already mentioned, I do have two separate billing addresses in UK & Germany, so it should be theoretically possible, but I'm slightly hesitant to take this step.
  12. To accommodate a couple of folk who are out of town, shifting to the following Thursday 14th, same place, same time.
  13. Believe me: I spoke to them on the phone and this is their limit for online transfers.   https://supportcentre.natwest.com/Searchable/913208362/What-are-the-payment-limits.htm  
  14. Well I'm with NatWest, so have to operate within their parameters.
  15.   No, it's NatWest's upper limit for daily transfers. Barclays is 10K, Halifax 25K and so on.
