I just wrote a lengthy post, but decided to delete it as it would probably have fallen foul of the rules against discussing politics.

However, yeah, there's more to this story. The guy has lived in the country on and off for twenty years, hence his interest in it. Also, he went there with the approval of his supervisor and department to conduct a series of pre-arranged interviews, so it's not like he's just been bumbling around asking awkward questions to the wrong people in blithe ignorance of what could happen.

Just had to fork out more cash to have my new cooker installed. Old one died on Friday night, the last thing I needed right now

Today my son came out in chickenpox, hurrah...

To be fair it gets it out of the way when he is at an age where he won't remember it.

Gone old skool

Bought a Soda Stream ! I drink Coke Zero like anything so i thought a cheaper way might be this soda stream. Pretty good so far, got some 'Coke Zero' (Or Rolla Cola) from Amazon and its not bad, bit of a different taste but i'm not that fussed by that. Just a nice cold fizzy drink.

They look fancier than the old 80's ones, no more plastic bottles either. Next up a sandwich toaster ;)
