Thank you, I will listen to that when I have time from my hectic schedule at the moment, I thought retirement meant relaxation but so much to do and the rainy season is here!

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

It’s always nice to see pics of pretty girls so this is one of three girls representing Cebu in the Mutya Pilipinas 2019 beauty pageant. Mutya Pilipinas translates to Beauty of the Philippines.

There are literally thousands of beauty pageants here in the Philippines, every city, town or village seems to have one as part of the local festivals which adorn the calendar.

The major pageants are televised to massive audiences. I remember the Miss United Kingdom and Miss World pageants being a huge audience winner for the BBC until the left wingers took over and banned the broadcasting of these events. Over in the Eastern countries they are still hugely popular on TV with huge ratings.

Are beauty pageants still televised in Europe and America?
Do you miss them in those countries where they are banned?

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Last night I watched Tomorrow Never Dies on TV. I must say that I was disappointed by the fight scenes. Bond looked slow to react and overall the scenes seemed lame. When I look at the same in OHMSS and indeed other films I believe this may have something to do with editing?

Also, just for my own information, one small point. In German airports, are English language newspapers available, or was the Tomorrow newspaper just there for the benefit of the audience so they could read the headline?

Yes, English language newspapers are available in German airports. They're not usually at the top of the display, though.

On an unrelated topic...... Last night with thunder storms we had to keep the
Hound in the house, which got me to thinking ( I don't do it very often ).
Do wolves etc get frightened by thunder and run away from their pack ?

So far this year I've mowed the lawn while it was snowing and barbacued in the rain. Both made sense at the time. I wonder what's next ….

The thermometer by my front door showed 33 degrees Celsius (more than 91 degrees Fahrenheit) today. This sort of temperatures is probably not big news where many of you live, but in case I've failed to mention it ( ajb007/lol ) I live in Norway. I'm not sure, but it might be an all time high record in this little hamlet where I live.

Sounds like something The Doctor might encounter in a few million years, having evolved into an intelligent life form underground whilst keeping roughly the same appearance.

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

Yesterday there was an attack on a mosque near Oslo by the only good type of terrorist - the failed one!
The terrorist was clearly inspired by right-wing attacks in NZ and other places and was active in their internet communities.
Luckily a brave 65 year old member of the mosque charged the terrorist before he managed to shoot anyone. He wrestled the 44 years younger terrorist to the ground and sat on him ( ajb007/lol ) until the police came.
The tragic part of the story is that the terorist killed his own sister before he went to attack the mosque.
