  1. Is Prince Harry revolting?

    I don't think Harry can forgive the media, and some royals, for how they treated his Mother when she was alive and I think he blames some of them for her death.  He lost his Mother at a very difficult age and all of this could be a reaction to that time.
  2. If you, as a parent, don't tell them, they're going to get the information from somewhere/someone else, possible someone their own age who also doesn't really understand what's going on. They can end up with quite a warped idea of what sex is by watching porn on a smartphone/computer.    Better a few minutes of awkwardness than getting the information from a site that their friend has found online.
  3. Relocating nearby to Munich

      Neither did I, until about 10 years ago when I realised that going back wasn't really an option any more. Luckily, about 8 years ago, I was able to buy the place I'm in and I've watched the prices around me increasing ever since. It was a case of right place, right time, nothing more, but I'm happy now that I managed to do it.
  4. I was brought up strictly catholic. My children were born here in Germany and I made the decision to expose them to the idea of other religions and not stick to just one. It wasn't done in any structured way, but through exposure to them and we used to talk about them, the good and the bad parts.  They went to a catholic kindergarten, did ethics in school, had friends growing up who were from various backgrounds, including Russian orthodox, Buddhist, Hindu, as well as catholic, protestant and non-religious.  I think it’s made them very tolerant of other people’s beliefs.  None of them is religious, but they accept that many people are.  If I remember rightly, one of them was a bit put out that they weren’t having a big party because they weren’t making their communion, but they got over that quickly enough.
  5. What made you smile today?

      Me too, I "lost" my car twice in the same car park in a shopping centre in Frankfurt, and once on the street when visiting a friend.  I'm very careful now where I park my car.  I've even been known to take a picture of the street name, just in case!   
  6. Any IT experts out there? Home WIFI problems

      Sorry to hear that emkay.  I'm lucky enough to have a daughter and a son-in-law involved in IT, so I'm able to hand problems over to them, when I have them.   Stay strong and I hope things start getting better for you all again soon.
  7.   Her first 2 children died in a camp, both from malnutrition and pneumonia, this one has managed to survive so far.  I'm not sure of the rights and wrongs of this, but she was only 15 when she left and she sounds like someone who needs help from someone.
  8. Coronavirus

      Agree, it was just a fleeting thought that crossed my mind earlier, especially as they had been talking about how this virus is affecting people with disabilities more than people without.
  9. Coronavirus

      A similar thought crossed my mind this morning while watching the British news.  2 sisters, the younger one, healthy with no problems, got her vaccination a few days ago. The elder sister with learning difficulties can't get an appointment - that's very odd!
  10. Looking for some English tea

      As would I, if anyone put the milk in first!!!!!! 
  11. Brexit: The fallout

      I saw that too, but I really don't understand it as Ronan Keeting is Irish, so still in the EU!!!!!!
  12.   Who does!    Do they not even see how ridiculous that is. 
  13. Corona hearing in fine proceedings.

    See, different rules all over the place and if you live anywhere near a boarder, it's easy to get confused.  I go to the supermarket about once every 10 days, other than that, I'm at home.     They're not dirty!!!!
  14. Corona hearing in fine proceedings.

    Isn't part of the problem that the rules keep changing.  I live on the border between Bavaria and Hessen and sometimes I had to think about where I was going to be during the day and what was allowed.  It's a bit easier now because the rules are the same everywhere (I think!) and I don't go anywhere now anyway.  People are becoming weary and/or confused by the changes, I know I did more than once.
