    More On The Dog Doo

    I just watched a lady dragging her little dog along the pavement (sidewalk) It dragged its arse along a full block. Do locals not realise that this is a sign of worms?

(yes I know, and he is not very happy about it). So why do I never see a hearse. You would think that...

    An introduction

    Having been on this site now for over three years now, I think perhaps it was time I properly introduced myself.

    Traveler Cheques

    OK, I don't use them, but I was asked today where they can be cashed and was at a loss to answer. Does anyone know, or has anyone used them here. I know that big hotels will cash them but anywhere other than this, just in case I am asked again.

    Congratulations to those born before 1960

    CONGRATULATIONS . . . to all born before 1960 First we survived being born to mothers who took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads of bacon, processed meat, tuna from a can. Then our cots were covered with lead based brightly coloured paint. We had no childproof lids on...

    Main de Dieu

    Are we Brits now going to get some sympathy from the Irish (or visa versa)? Will Thierry Henry now be demonised in Ireland like Maradona is in England? Will the French be wearing t-shirts with Homer Simpson wearing French colours crying Main de Dieu? :rolleyes: Just asking.

Scruffy individuals, they dressed in whatever they could find, old anoraks, holey jumpers, torn jeans. I am not being judgemental just observing. Now on my latest...

    In a city where nobody does anything for themselves, does celebrity change everything? We hear from celebrity commentators that the stars are knitting, now on every corner where once were cafes, are wool shops. I walked down Scalabrini the other day and it is now almost exclusively wool shops...
