  1. Cover band recommendations for a wedding

    Unsurprisingly, Berlin + ceilidh + band turns up quite a few results...
  2. What made you laugh today?

    Credit where credit's due...one week is pretty good (for him)
  3.   Interested in the truth, indeed. As POTUS 45 tweeted shortly after the "shithole" controversy "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used." We have his word for it.   So here we are once again: humbled - and schooled - by HF's debunking of ideologically skewed commentary and gossip. After all, let's remember that HF voted for Brexit not with any personal gain in mind, but selflessly, for his country. Even when Farage goes all wobbly and starts to suggest a second referendum, we can be sure that HF's square-jawed integrity and principled plain-speaking keeps us all on the straight and narrow.   In that spirit - and I speak as one who is guilty of poking fun at Trump on these very boards - I'd appreciate HF's help to examine this video to see if it has been tampered with in any way in order to disrespect the POTUS.       
  4. Why are you happy today?

      Taking a bidet for a ride? Well... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bidet_horse  
  6. Why are you happy today?

    A minor thing - my bike lock has been jamming, so I popped into my local Schlüsseldienst / cobblers and he gave it a few squirts of his "better than WD40" unlocking fluid and hey presto, it's now loosened up so i can properly oil it. Point of the tale - when asked what I owed him, he smiled and said "nothing".   Hardly a world shattering anecdote but just goes to show it's not all "Schnauze" in Berlin. Plus of course when I have something to fix properly he'll be our first port of call.
