Re: Idea

...and anyone who is out all day, returns in the evening and has a contribution to make to a thread, might be barred from doing so simply because they missed their chance.

Re: Idea

Leave things as they are; I see no reason to change. Threads invariably veer off topic - and I'm as bad as most for doing that - but it makes the thread no less interesting. No different I suppose to a conversation in real life.

Re: Bird on a wire

Why would you want to scare off birds? Best bit about waking up in Cyprus is the birdsong. Go to Mandria and see what a nuisance pigeons are. The rooves are coated with pigeon doo-doo. They are a real pest. I've placed spikes strategically on our roof and one of our windows to prevent them alightin...

Re: Sunday Lunch

We're big fans of Pericles, but not for the Sunday buffet, good though it is. We prefer to go a weekend evening. In the winter months there's a nice log fire going. Invariably free desserts and coffees. We buy moussaka and stuffed tomatoes in bulk from Pericles. We and daughter share one tray of eac...

Re: Is Trump mentally ill?

Whilst I think Donald is a catastrophe waiting to happen can he be any worse than Ronald, Richard, George W, et al? :( Shane In one week he has already proved that he is. According to ITV News tonight, they're trying to sort out the mayhem created by the ill thought out ban and most people detained...

Not sure whether this article (story widely reported in many other newspapers/media) is indicative of the 'Narcissistic Personality Disorder' referred to by OhSusana, but sounds like it could and will hardly will endear Trump to William and Harry if the State visit does go ahead: http://www.thedaily...

Anyway, there is another petition now...

Donald Trump should make a State Visit to the United Kingdom. ;)

So there is. And as I write, it has garnered 102,000 votes. Slightly less than the 1.67 million who say they don't want him to meet the Queen.

Re: Petition in support of Trump UK visit

An hour or two ago Yahoo reported that well over 1.5 million people (self included) had voted in favour of Trump NOT enjoying a State visit.

The alternative petition in favour of Trump seeing the Queen had gained just 77,000 votes.

Easy to determine which way people are thinking.

Re: Is Trump mentally ill?

Perhaps that's why it got so many signatures, people signing from outside the UK made it void and was, therefore, sidestepped. Made it void? How so? From the petition site: "Only British citizens or UK residents have the right to sign" Last time I looked at my passport I was a British citizen :lol:...

SFAIK, you cannot claim the discount retrospectively. I believe that date was before the discount was introduced.

Line 3 on Americans killed by Islamist Jihadists is 9. On 9/11 by that quantity they did 313 years worth, so evidently they are having a well earned rest.
Underneath it says 10 year average. All the figures were 10 year average. 9/11 was in 2001.

Re: Is Trump mentally ill?

I'm so incensed by Trump and what he is about that I actually took the trouble to find and sign the anti Trump State Visit petition. Up to 1.5 million signatories now. Even if the petition is unsuccessful (as seems likely) and he comes for his photo-op with the Royals, the demonstrations will be ple...

There are a fair amount of Chinese kids at the ISOP, so some of them definitely do stay. Indeed. And ISOP is now part-owned by Chinese investors. Chinese have invested in far more than just 'houses for residency'. Though Wallace is right, whole developments have been sold to Chinese, which of cours...
