Re: B sqn lads 1982 - Hohne. Stan, Mick, Sooty and me.

Thanks Pinky and Arnie for that run down on north and south. I have always fancied the wilderness of Canada and would always choose New Zealand over Australia though I have never been to either. I was up over the boarder into Canada whilst working in the USA but made a big mistake: Just before going...

Re: Electric SHOCK

Thanks for the feedback everyone, does nobody support this madness ? Arnie, I was NOT and am NOT suggesting that Global Warming is a con. I am in no doubt as to the FACT that our climate is changing: that is to say that 'a long period of climatic stability is coming to an end'. I also accept that we...

Electric SHOCK

If, like me, any of you environmentally friendly types are thinking of buying an electrically powered car … think again, this is perhaps the biggest con since unleaded petrol ! An average electric car uses about 15 kWh per 100 km. With a kWh (here) costing around 30 € cents that’s about €4,50 per 10...

Re: Good investment

Been very busy with all of the wet weather, harvesting, etc. Your grapes look just great Bob, I'll go along with Mick's idea and order a bottle of your best. At our place that's father-in-laws job, making the wines. He does some really good berry wines too. Anybody remember the Plough at Pitton (I t...

Re: Good investment

Just dug up the second of my 8 rows of spuds, I told you I liked them ! My rows are only 3 meters long which makes for ease of handling and portions the workload somewhat, but most importantly: a single insect net covers an entire row, so there is almost no problem with the beetles. So, in a 3 meter...

Alberta, Canada, Pinkerton's, not into security are you ?

Tell me, is living in Canada really so much better than the UK or Europe ?

Re: Good investment

sweet pea, yup, mushy peas and chips, working mans grub ! Mick, glad that you liked my posh version of 'working mans grub'. We tend to get different sorts of potatoes here, so I don't know the Charlotte, though she sounds delightful :shock:. For sure having the right sort of spud is a great advantag...

Re: B sqn lads 1982 - Hohne. Stan, Mick, Sooty and me.

Arnie, do phones work down under ? And I thought that the natives were still making bead necklaces out of the telephone wires ... so that the phone lines are always down. That's why they use a thingy-me-jig, digerido, or boomerang to send messages. Is it true that with the boomerang you always get a...

Good investment

If I were to tell you to invest in a certain deal and, after just 3 - 4 months, promise that you would get back between 5 and 20 times your investment, what would you say ? ... Well I know of such an investment and it does not matter how little or how much you invest the margins remain the same ! .....

Do you mean that the driver has to get his feet wet when peddling ? Not much changed then eh :wink: ! FFV = Flintstone Floating Vehicle. (I can make out which one is Fred and even Barnie, but the girls aren't wearing their 'floats' :lol: :lol: ) Arnie, not heard from Rick for some time and, as he li...

When we used to swim our AFV's, in my day, they still looked like AFV's. That's a brilliant camouflage job :lol: :lol: !

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

No new input ... Does this mean that poor old 'Herman the German' is finally dead ? If so then may he rest in peace for all of eternity :lol: :lol: :lol: . Probably completely out of order, but ... one of my old mans jokes: When a recent Pope died and went to heaven and received his audience with Go...

Re: MAX SIMON

Bob,

what luck you had, getting things 'first hand' from a person of Max's calibre. After all of his adventures it is remarkable that he lived to be 94. May he now rest in peace, job done !

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

Arnie, interesting that you mention that there were no ovens in Belsen when you first went there. There certainly were when I was there ! Could this be 'presenting things how we (the winners of WWII) want them to be remembered ? Or, as a certain Mr Trump would say, presenting 'FAKE NEWS' ? Myself, I...

Dear Sammy and Arnie, I don't usually start with 'Dear' but I was waiting for and wondering about how the clash of philosophies would pan out and I am delighted that you two appear to have accepted each others opinions without getting shirty; this proves we are all getting old :lol: :lol: :lol:, wel...
