Re: G.E.

I made no comment on it being unacceptable, unjustified or offensive, simply to back up another poster that they are not alone in being influenced by the delivery of a message. Also to say that by making choices, as I do in what to listen to after trying with an open mind, or whose insults I eventua...

Re: If the internet crashed and could not be recovered

I would buy and read loads of text and reference books like I once used to and have very little time or interest in reading fiction. I would buy local and national newspapers and also the English press. I would spend a lot more time asking people what they did, finding all about it if it could ever ...

Re: life expectancy up!

You are absolutely right! Also the much improved infant mortality rate is the reason why the statistics would have us believe that we will live 15 years longer than our parents who were supposed to have died at 70. Neither they nor us were dead at birth. My grandmother had given birth to 10 children...

Re: Happy Election Day!

Recieved an E-mail from Currencyfair today, I have not used them or any currency transfer company for over 5 years and am certain I have never had any E-mails from them since back then, clearly they are hoping to scare up some business. The pound has reached a two-and-a-half year peak against the eu...

Re: life expectancy up!

Do you expect to live longer than your parents? Assuming they did not die from accident etc.

Are you in better health etc than them when they were your age?

If you got to their time of life in the same or worse health would you want to live the extra years that you expect?

Re: G.E.

Its not selfish prejudice or blindness to decide not to watch something because of the way it is being said (example with venom & hatred) or the use of foul language, I had been forewarned and did try then made my choice. I cant unsee all the Tweet postings or screenshots repeated here with the F wo...

Re: What is the meaning of Brexit?

In my last 2 visits, and the last one was 5 weeks, hand on heart I cannot actually recall having any dealings with British employees or self employed or business owners, not a single one. There probably would have been one or two natives on the tills at Tescos but they are all auto tills now, bound ...
