    We should all stop and think.

    A better film than that one is showing now at a small cinema in the US. It's called, "NO CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF ANY KIND"

    Witnesses for a Wedding

    Don't worry. Several decades ago, my first husband, I and a great Roman Catholic priest, were standing in the aisle about to begin the wedding ceremony when the priest suddenly suddenly realized that we were missing a second witness. He couldn't marry us unless we found somebody right away! My...

    Plastic straws banned in BA restaurants.

    I remember when paper straws became naughty. Save our forests! Plastic straws solved that one; we could feel virtuous doing the 'right' thing.

    EU + Mercosur Trade Agreement

    I far prefer as a French taxpayer contributing to agricultural subsidies which provide high quality food than take up my other (nightmarish) option of returning to the UK, my country, to live out its once-spoken-between-tight lips, feeble promise to its own people that they'll have access to...

    EU + Mercosur Trade Agreement

    European farmers are reeling, saying they've been sold out by this agreement with Mercosur. French, Irish and German beef producers are the most alarmed about Argentine beef roaring into Europe to take over the ‘cheap beef’ market which many French consumers scorn...

    Dental implants.

    Yes, he is practising at his same office on Av. Santa Fé: http://www.drspelcman.com/ All the work he performed on me from 2008-2011 is still great and has never let me down in any way. He improved my life. I'll never forget him

    Stricter Border Controls

    Ha ha! I worried that that Officer might be offended by my being a Canadian who kept returning to Arg while never holidaying in the US and being unfamiliar with US chain hotel names. I felt he was stereotyping me in terms of what Canadians 'must want' in his eyes. I've never been subjected to...

    Stricter Border Controls

    The reason why I asked this question now and ever since 2008 or 2009 was because of the following. When I twice told the Officer that I wasn't interested in visiting the US and that anyway, I had no right to do so because I was just in in transit internationality, he told me I was wrong and...

    Stricter Border Controls

    I'm 9th generation Canadian and also British by naturalization later. I remember well the US' and other countries' in transit' lounges during the 1960's and '70's when I had to change flights in the US on my way to and from Canada and Europe. They were pleasant, restful. I too was shocked...

    Please help: issues with landlady

    fredinba, What are you doing to help portenos in Argentina's economy - other than telling foreigners that they should let themselves be ripped off or get the hell out?

    Renewing visa law changed?

    The abuse arises when one doesn't abide by the terms of some formal permission that Argentina or any country gave him. Such as staying there longer than you were permitted to.

    The produce in Argentina is bad. Why?

    After the total of 6 months I spent in BA as a Canadian visitor, I retired to France where I eat only the freshest and best fruit and veg of France, Italy and Spain because this is all that's available to buy. In my estimation, Argentine produce is far superior to the rubbish and rot I had to...

    Physiotherapy / Physical Therapy...

    Ceviche, I've been surprised by how long the educational and training periods are in various countries and jurisdictions to become certified to practise physiotherapy in each one. It's 3 or 4 years in each Canadian province, 5 years in Argentina and I forgot how long in England and across the...

    Physiotherapy / Physical Therapy...

    chrispagden, Physiotherapy is a regulated profession in every country where I've used this modality of treatment as a patient for over 40 years. Are you certified and registered to practice in Argentina by its regulatory body? You've not given us your credentials to practise in Argentina. Nor...

    It's always an inside job

    Re. losing our British pensions, please read this brief description of what financial 'passporting' is: http://ukandeu.ac.uk/fact-figures/what-is-passporting/ If or once the UK stops being an EU member state, it will lose its EU-derived right of ‘passporting’. It will become a non-EU, ‘third...

    It's always an inside job

    I accept your apology. We're good. Making a mistake is a risk we take by posting. Very embarrassing but isolating oneself from engaging would feel worse.

    It's always an inside job

    GMX, It was a shock to read that I'd not been sympathetic about 'jantango' being assaulted and robbed. Thank you greatly for catching and correcting elhombresinnombre's recklessness in attributing to me a lack of warmth towards 'jantango' and what she suffered - when I'd not posted anything to...

    Ink security tag

    Ruining 2 steel forks to save a kid's jacket costing $US3 is idiotic.

    Ink security tag

    Since the early 90's, ink cartridge deterrents have been used by most clothing retailers I've used in England and Canada. I live in France now where I don't shop very often. I can't recall shops here and in Italy where I tend to shop more using inked tags. Their employees, instead, never take...
