  3. International schools in Berlin

    Do you want your kids to  study in German or English?
  4. Darmspiegelung - colonoscopy

    I had a colonoscopy recently. I did not opt for the sedative as I wanted to watch everything and be in control as much as possible should anything go wrong. One polyp was found and a biopsy was taken and I am now waiting for the result before they decide on the best way to remove it. This means having a secong op, going on the diet again and taking that damm laxative that goes straight thru you. This is far worse than the actual operation.
  5. Can anyone recommend a vnp?

    I will not be  continuing with my VPN quest. Too damm complicated. I will remain contented with the BBC World Service. There are some good programms and it is so relaxing to listen to the radio and give my eyes a rest. A good examle is  The Force of Google in which the dubious practices of Google are explored such as directing searches to their own products.
  6. Can anyone recommend a vnp?

    Thanks for all the info. Would a VPN give me additional benefits? A while ago ,somebody got into my betting account and squandered the lot on silly casino bets. Would a VNP prevent this?
  7. Can anyone recommend a vnp?

    I would like to access stuff like the bbc iplayer. At the moment I cannot do this , but with a VNP I should. So if anyone can recommend one , I would be grateful. As long as it is not illegal.

    I agree  that I have been given excellent support from Toytowners  e.g Panda Munich. I will never let them take her back to China.
  9. how to print my British Airways ticket

    It is curious indeed. What is wrong with an industry wide standard? Anyhow , I am pleased to tell you all that I ckecked in OK  and printed my boarding pass off. But I had to take a screen shot  and do it that way as it was not obvious how to save it in a PDF form. It should do.

    So typical of Ryanair. I avoid them where at all possible
  11. how to print my British Airways ticket

    I booked my return ticket recently. I went with EasyJet this time and did it all in a few minutes. From booking the flight to printing the ticket took less than 15 minutes . Why can`t all airlines offer this? Why insisit on checking in inside 24 hours of departure.  If things go wrong , there is not much time to fix them. E.g. my computer screen died a few months ago and it took well over 24 hours to get a a new one fitted. What if this had happened at just the wrong moment?
  12. Obituary thread of notable or obscure folk: Cindy Williams

    Kirstie Alley made me laugh a great deal as did all those great characters from Cheers. I can still watch it now and have a good chuckle, It must have been a hard act to follow Shelly Long , but she did it wonderfully well.

    Step 1 complete. Did the  advance passanger info today. I will follow LeonGs advice and get my ticket printed before going to the airport. If that does not work , then I can always get another one at the airport.

    Honestly , as long as I am on the plane , I do not care about what seat I have.
  15. how to print my British Airways ticket

    I do not have a printer , interner access or a TV at home , but I can use the library to print out the boarding pass before I travel to the airport. This would make me feel a lt better. I really do no.t like going to the airport without a boarding pass already in my hand. Especially when I remember the British Airways terminal 5 opening fiasco of a few years ago. But the boarding pass issued at the airport is a solid chunk of material , rather than the flimy A4 from the printer.
