    Monday 26th September is the Day of the Shop Assistant.


    All big supermarket chains and shopping centres will be closed


    Stock up !!


    Thank God for our Chinese friends, who never close.

    It's a bloody disgrace.


    We need a new rear light for the car. Nothing is available in Argentina and no one can give a date when they will be here, - Can get it in Europe for 140 euros, Uruguay for 200 more or less..


    No one can tell me how much tax I will have to pay.

    I'll repeat, Argentine women don't miss a thing. I'm often reminded of this.

    She'll say, "Oh is she the one who...?" or "Yes, I remember her..." usually in reference to a gathering when or if I spent too much time talking to a person of the fairer sex.

    God forbid that I would harmlessly flirt or that a woman would with me. I'd never hear the end of it and be constantly reminded.

    YIP WE SHOULD GET A T-SHIRT MADE .....

    She seems to give you very practical answers to your queries and questions.


    Nice girl.


    Wouldn't be allowed in my place. I pick my business associates on the basis, are they 20 years older than Mrs GJ


    At least 50 lbs overweight .


    And no blondes allowed at all...

    Is The Globe a UK or US scandal rag? I’m thinking it’s yours, not ours? In any case, tabloids care only about selling papers, not about any semblance of truth. So it’s probably not photoshopped, but the real item. Despicable.

    I think it is US based , the price is in USD, bottom left corner.


    Even though it has been vox populi for years in the UK , no one dared to publish it as far as I can remember.

    I don't think anyone envies them at all.


    Some people love the whole concept.


    Others just get annoyed that they get a pile of cash for doing very little.


    Just read in the Telegraph that Charles decided to tell Harry that the Queen had died , five minutes before it went public. What kind of father is this guy? You tell the bloody PM, who had been in the job for about ten minutes, before he tells his own son.


    Why does he hate him?


    Because he married a girl whose skin is a different colour?


    Or does he not see him as his own son?


    I cannot get my head around this one at all.

    Trevor Noah is a very popular comedian, not exactly a journalist, but he certainly does have his point of view. I wonder if people in countries that formerly were part of the Empire actually could blame a monarch who didn’t reign until the last half of the 20th century, and who had no political power in any case?


    This did make me wonder, GlasgowJohn and UK Man , how your parents felt about the monarchy and how both of you feel?

    My family is a bit of a mixture - one-half Irish and one-half Scottish Presbyterian - Ok the Presbyterian grandfather got thrown out of his church because he married a Catholic.


    My father was always encouraging the whole family to read and think about things. He always said you should be ruled by someone you voted for not by someone who was born in the right place at the right time with the right parents,


    The Monarchy doesn't rule as such but they affect the way government works - you pay taxes to His Majesty, not to the government..the Prime Minister is the Head of His Majestys Government.


    The Royal Family doesn't pay income tax or inheritance taxes.


    Occasionally, people will say they are good for tourism. Maybe, but no one will tell you The French chateau system brings in ten times more cash than the Royal family.


    Right now, UK ltd is in a bloody mess. Maybe it's time for a radical change.

    Actually, I think now is the time and the place to debate the future of the monarchy.


    After the accession of Charles, it is too late and the debate will be false.


    Already we have seen or heard accession oaths that do not accept all religions that are practiced in the UK - this is a disgrace for all.


    There have been jokes by BBC Journalists laughing at Roman Catholics. the second most important religion in the UK.


    Charles is trying desperately to reinstate his brother Andrew into society. Why? He or his dear mother paid someone 12 million pounds to keep quiet.


    Is Andrew the type of person we want in a position of authority?


    This is a debate that should happen now and I think it should happen before the coronation.

    Think I have had two or three Fernets + Coke in the last 14 years here. Certainly not on my list of favourite drinkies.


    if you fancy a wee bitter after dinner, I would go for Gammel Dansk from Denmark.


    But why drink bitters when you have any of the malt whiskies out there looking for love and attention?

    I also remember another Italian bitter from my last trip to Italy - Ramazzotti. That wasn't bad either.
