  1. Whilst I remember and respect those who gave their lives in two world wars and since, I can never forget that famous quotation fron Clausewitz "War is the continuation of politics by other means" It's the politicians who make wars but the poor bloody soldiers who have to fight them
  2. The original song was written by Jay Livingston & Ray Evans and was performed by Doris Day on the soundtrack of Hitchcock's 1956 picture "The Man who Knew Too Much" During that year it made noi. 2 in the US Billboard charts and no. 1 in the UK Top Ten. In March 1957 it won the Oscar for best original song.
  3. Yummy!!! Yesterday I had a a prawn & mushroom tom ka with a friend, made from tom ka paste Kussme brought over on her recent trip to London, really enjoyed it - But now after eating that lot, how much belly dancing will u have to do to unload those extra pounds???

    !! Condoms !!

    How about "Things go better with Coca-Cola :-) BTW, there was a similar campaign for Walker's potato crisps in the UK about 10 years ago, including "Smoky Beckham", "Salt & Lineker" and "Cheese & Owen" flavours - but they never got round to roping in the then Arsenal and England goalkeeper David Seaman :-)
  5. I guess late October isn't the best time to start your new liife in England Shannon - but I understand exactly what you mean about teenagers and disrespect. As for eating out, you can find good places, but they're few and far between and they can be very expensive. I regularly go to an Indian vegetarian restaurant not far from my home, where we can get a tasty and nutritious buffet for less than five pounds. Hope yr new life over here is happy
  6. I have a lot of respect for Sir Richard, he's transformed the airline business (among others) almost single-handed. The problem for me is that it's over 40 years since I qualified to fly with VIRGIN Atlantic :-)

    My sister also has a birthday on 31 Oct - when we were kids I used totake the p*** about it. Have a good one m8 :-)
  10. Pity there isn't a Nobel prize for the Environmentl, he'd very possibly win that as well as the peace prize he already has. As month follows month of Obama's presidency I'm more and more struck with the contrast in almost every single policy area between him and the total a**hole who occupied the White House before him.

    Anniversary!!!

    Heinz, let me wish you and Arlai a happy anniversary and many more still to come
  12. Moobs, to answer your questions in the order you asked them, the second biggest a**hole in the world (almost but not quite up to the standard of Geo Dubya) and never - the Westminster government wouldn't let it happen.
  13. Looking at the the concept of the Islamic jihad, at the Israeli campaign against the Palestinians and the barren fundamentalist intolerance in some Bible Belt states of the USA, I find it difficult if not impossible to get my head round the concept that compassion is a uniting theme of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. In his best-seller "The God Delusion" Pichard Dawkins made a very telling comment: "When one person is deluded it's called madness, when millions are deluded that's religion".
  14. Stick at it Shannon, once you get used to it the UK is a great place to live. And Iain, it's news to me that they speak English at all in Aussie - and they say the UK and the USA are "separated by a common language" :-)

    Drunken night out

    A guy went out on a pub crawl one Friday night. After drinking all he could manage he went to Trafalgar Square and climbed on the back of one of the four bronze lions guarding the base of Nelson's Column, where he sat shouting "Giddy up"Two policemen turned up and tried to persuade him down, but it took some doing and after he had knocked off both their helmets and pushed them around a bit, out came the handcuffs. As he was led away he screamed at the top of his voice "The whole country's being run by a bunch of idiots"After Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in the police cells he was up in front of the magistrates. Thay fined him 100 pounds for drunk and causing a nuisance, 200 pounds for assaulting police officers and sent him to prison for two years under the Official Secrets Act.

    Happy Splashing

    I could understand it if it was the middle of April in BKK, but good for the cops for taking action - I guess it could technically be an assault as well. Hope the ***** gets a hefty fine
  25. Happy 5th TF birthday Kus - here's to the next 5 :-)
