Why can't we export things like LEGO , IKEA and music like our neighbours do? Sometimes it feels like fish is the only major export we have that doesn't destroy the world.

As usual we manage to separate what's the essence of a thread from what's not really the topic, then we focus on the latter  ajb007/lol

Is it too hot, just right or a bit chilly?  ajb007/biggrin

Hello Number24. My country is not hot all the time there are different weather seasons just like Europe. It also rains and thunder storms but much more than in England with these storms. The lightning is very spectacular always. The heatwave in England is never too hot for me but the winter is sometimes too cold! As the last winter storms from Russia! I did not walk without shoes then!

Over at MI6 ( the MI stands for Mission Impossible  now  ajb007/wink  ) in a
Private message to another defender  of Bond. I said I fully expect
A mention of John Wick  soon, as a fighting style for 007.  Only a couple of " How much better than Bond is MI " posts later. To see
Keanu Reeves mentioned as an idea as an opponent  for Mr Hunt  ajb007/lol

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Oh for goodness sake! Keanu comes across as a thoroughly good egg, but he's the type of actor who either works perfectly in a film or is a total disaster. His range is so narrow that a film has to be constructed around him. The first John Wick film was fun (the second one not so much, for me), but comparing the character to Bond is the height of absurdity.

In the background you can see The Pulpit, where a key scene in the movie was shot.

We do have quite a lot of health and safety regulations, but we take it for granted that people use their brains when hiking i the mountains. I've heard of warning signs near the Grand Canyon - we don't do that here.

Hi gang , it's been far too hot to sit indoors and chat on line , been sitting in the garden drinking a selection of europes finest , so apologise if I've neglected my AJB duties . But now the heat is dying down back on line have we discussed the sad and terrible shooting of a polar bear by a tourist cruise ship ? , I'm not apportioning blame to any nation here because we are all guilty , I'm just wondering what the poster said on board ship ? Limited spaces available , this is your last chance to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat .and if it gets to close we will blow it's brains out  ajb007/mad  ajb007/mad  ajb007/mad

By the way, did I tell you,  I was       "Mad"?

I visited the 100 feet viking ship that's being built.. I don't know the words in English to discuss it in detail, but the main hull is finished. The floor, the dragon head in front, the oars, the benches for the rowers, the mast and the steering oar etc. is still not finished. I look forward to next summer when the ship is seaworthy. It's very large and stunningly beautiful   ajb007/biggrin

I am not sure if this is accurate, but I imagine you spend a good deal of time around Viking ships, eating waffles while wearing bulky sweaters.

We can do that, sure.  ajb007/smile
An elderly American man who travels the world to see wooden ships saw the Myklebustskip earlier this year. He hugged the side of the ship's side and was on the verge of tears. It was the most beautiful ship he had seen yet. The lines are so elegant.

Had a feeling it may have been that video before I clicked on it—watched it a week or so ago and I’m still shocked  ajb007/lol I have no idea how some people could be that stupid! Thinking Alaska (one of their own states) was Greenland and that Russia (the big one) was America...just wow!
