Just before WWI radio could be heard in the wealthier homes.
Just before WWII TV could be watched in the wealthier homes.
Just before WWIII almost everyone has a smart phone ... will this make a difference ?

For anyone who is young enough ... plant spuds, for the rest of us old gits, get some wine in and a box...

Re: Quite amazing !

Pinky, you have stirred up my old gray matter ! On my first couple of exercises in Germany we encountered vast swarms of May and June bugs. They were the size of half a thumb, with wings. Some guys used their mess-tins, as tenis bats, to knock them out of the air with a resounding clunk. This of cou...

Re: Quite amazing !

Alas there was no second 'air acrobatic show' but the wine flowed freely and a good night was had by all. On the one hand we were disappointed, on the other all the more aware of how fortunate we had been the previous evening !

Quite amazing !

Last evening we were having a drink with friends on the camping site in southern Spain. They keep their garden well watered in this arid landscape. At about 20.00 hrs. and still at around 25ºC countless thousands of insects suddenly started to fly up from their garden into the night sky, it was quit...

Re: Israeli/Iran Conflict

John,
while l have to agree that there are a lot of whores, son's of bitches, pimps and perverts who are very active in Gaza right now, perhaps this topic should be in a new thread !?!
For certain, there's no denying that Brussels is a cesspit of insanity ...

Re: Israeli/Iran Conflict

Hi Arnie, everyone, it certainly seems that our (Western) high-tech weapons are superior to those of our opponents. But they also cost a thousand times more to produce ! The news recently reported that the Huti's were attacking ships with drones costing 2000 pounds and British ships were shooting th...

Re: Israeli/Iran Conflict

John, this, in my opinion, gives Russia every right to attack any factory producing military hardware anywhere in the UK and beyond. Not to mention the transport of such munitions anywhere along their route. If l were a Russian tactician, l would also be planning to sink ships crossing the atlantic ...

Re: Israeli/Iran Conflict

Arnie, John L, and all, well we can certainly agree on the last couple of posts. ln England the Prime Minister is so unpopular that there's a serious danger that he could loose the upcomming election. And even though he makes the usual mistakes of a Conservative Leader, allowing the super rich to be...
