Chatterbox LXXXI - Rodney

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Unless you have the time and the legs (steep steps) to walk away from the quayside to where it's still quite serene

Even some of the river cruisers are big these days, we saw some of the "Viking Long Ships" (sic) on the Danube in October - huge :shock:
I am going on a river cruise (Douro) in October, but the boat is a tiddler compared to them

The problem in Cyprus is different, it is All In Holidays, where everything including locally produced alcohol is included, you may have to pay for some water sports. I understand this type of holiday is a godsend to families with children.The problem is that so many people just do not leave the hotel except perhaps for a coach trip to the mountains so the bars next door and tavernas are going out of business. More to the point the visitors are not seeing Cyprus.
By coincidence Deb was in Paphos on Saturday, she used to work there. She drove up from the harbour area to the Old Town which has had a major face lift. She told me that it is now posh coffee shops, shops selling tat and lots of empty premises. I have been reading in the local paper that Paphos town council wants to fill the area the area with "artisan shops", whatever that means. The problem is that the few remaining artisans were driven out by because the road works and access problems prevented them from trading

The local shops do quite well when the liners arrive, not with the passengers, who either stay on board or go away on bus trips, but with the crew, they love the more down market shops of the local town and the charity shops have a field day. They send lots of stuff back home for their families.

Alice was one of the front runners when Charlotte was born, it is a royal name but not too obvious, and a nice simple name anyway
I would be slightly surprised if they chose Albert, because I doubt Kate would like the inevitable Bertie
But it's up to them after all :)

We did a small boat cruise (50 of us) on the Douro a couple of years ago. Felt more like a house party. Loved it.

Similar to small boat Croatian cruises, one with only 30 on board. Tying up on the promenades enabled us to miss the excursions and just wander at our own pace around the back streets.

After we retired we did a P&O cruise 'cos everyone said we would enjoy it. We did, though back then the ships were quite small compared to today - about 2,000. We enjoyed it but not enough to make it a habit. My view then was it enables the British to go abroad without leaving their own country. However, we did say if one of us ever became disabled then we wouldn't hesitate - all were well looked after. My older sister, who still spends her days gardening, can't walk very far - it's a way for them to have a holiday without doing very much - picked up at their door, stayed on board mostly, but could take short walks round the ship as well as the dockside and no washing up. Plus superb evening entertainment.

The only other large ship cruise was an Alaskan one, no other way for us to see that country, and coupled it with Vancouver, Vancouver Island and the Rocky Mountaineer - unforgettable, still. Thanks for reminding me. :D

You'd think so- being Shakespeare's birthday. Our Ollie-Boppet is well impressed as it is his birthday today too. :D

Mum, dad and I went on a cruise (around the Med) years ago when I was 9. It was one of those holidays of a lifetime (dad was recovering from a serious illness) and they loved it as did I at the time. It was like Butlins At Sea. Would probably hate it now though I still remember some of the amazing experiences such as Pompei and Dubrovnik and the rock of Gibralter (loved the monkeys :) ).

Breaking news....we've accepted offer on our house!!! Thought it was never going to happen. Such a nice couple- I met them last week when they came round for a second viewing and we spent quite a long time sitting in the garden and chatting. I can tell house will be going to a good home as it were. Market has deffo softened- we've had to come down quite a bit on price- but it should be enough for us to find what we want. We've made an offer on a house and are waiting to see if they'll accept or not. Fingers crossed....

Just tuned in to ITV to watch Tipping Point and found that instead of a quiz, there's some overexcited woman talking to a man in a street about crowds blocking access to a hospital for patients and ambulances. Quite how you can talk about that for nearly half an hour is beyond me... :rolleyes:

Stupid BBC reporter keeps saying the new baby is heavier than both George and Charlotte, apparently unaware that this would mean he weighed more than the pair of them put together, but of course she meant bigger than either of them
What's bizarre is that I have heard two other BBC reporters today make the same simple error in completely different contexts

And they've just had a BBC "royal correspondent" say "Prince Harry was catigated to be the spare to the heir" Pardon? :shock:

I'm awake in the middle of the night - reading back has been hilarious!

Congrats Seatallen! Brilliant news!

The avocado article reminds me of the QUANTAS mag I was reading in a plane yesterday. Designed for wealthy business people (who probably wouldn't read it anyway) it was filled with details of luxury haunts around the world which served similar things. One offered cured egg yolk with other items, I am curious to know how it is done.

Pleased to read here first that the royal baby has arrived safely. Very clever of her to have so neatly missed the Queens birthday. I shall bet Leopold for the name.

Good luck with the PPI Aero, I wonder if I will have any more good news when I get back? :bounce:

Good evening everyone,
My lunch out with my old work friends was lovely and evolved into a long catch up. I just got back in time for my early evening Tesco delivery. :o The conversation certainly was wide-ranging with lots of laughs. Food wise, we went for the soup or fries + sandwich option so I need to think about a meal for this evening. A "bung it in" frittata I think might just fit the bill. I had the soup which was lovely - chicken, bacon and brie which wasn't as rich & heavy as it sounded though I found my baguette lacked a bit of oomph (prawn mayo), nothing actually wrong with it just a bit underseasoned.

Weather has been dire and it is really quite cold tonight, I've had to pop the heating on. :(

Morning all,

A serious nip in the air with cloud cover today. Lovely!

I have the council coming today to help me get my radiators working. I have no intention of having them on, but as I said to the lady in the repair department, I've got three stiff knobs that need looking at. Better to get them looked at when there's no immediate rush ready for when I do need to use them. Mr Intercom Man might come by to fit a new unit in my hall as the current one is hanging on by a thread. It does make me wonder why the previous tenant left it like that when, as far as I can tell so far, if there's a repair needs doing the council, unlike private landlords IME, are straight on it! Anyway, other than that, more droll unpacking!

Good morning wild ones. I think the new royal baby might be called Phillip after HRH. We will probably find out today. The weather is not looking good today. We have had two accidents outside our house in the last two days. On Sunday a council worker turned to quickly and tipped over into the road ripping a wheel off his buggy. Yesterday we had builders giving a price for a job when bang, a lad on a motor bike run into the back of his parked van :rolleyes: Gawd knows what will happen today if the things happen in threes rule is true :shock:

Morning everyone :wave:
The sun has just broken through the morning mist and it is promising to be another beautiful day. However that does mean everything will have to be watered.

Talking of which. We desided not to dig up the ceanothus which died on us last year but to cut it back and plant a variety of climbing plats with it to give colour for longer. DD has a lovely honeysuckle and a clematis Montana over her fence. The honeysuckle has load of suckers springing up. How should we root these? Also I imagine the Montana would be easy to propogate.am I correct. We've already got a solanum on the go.

Waiting to hear the chosen name. Mr R's father was Aurthur but he used his second name Sydney. His uncle was Albert Victor but when he became a very senior officer in the RAF he stopped being Bertie and suddenly became Victor ;) ;)

Gery and cool with April showeres forecast here

The chirping thing is still chirping, didn't think it would manage more than a week I'm beginning to think I should Get A Man In - but which one? Would an electrician have some kind of detection equipment or do I need to go to one of the shadier shops off Tottenham Court Road and get some kind of spyware? :o It occurs to me that I will be playing backgammon with the best electrician I know on Thursday (if I make it as out all day) so I might ask him for some advice

Have a good day
