Re: Easing of Capital Controls restrictions as of Mar1st

Thank you, that is very timely information. What does this mean though - sorry if I'm being dense i.e. via a debit card with a UK based bank I could take as much as I wanted on a daily basis (certainly not a good way to get cash and only used in extremis.

EU joke(s)

A farmer, named Sam, was overseeing his herd in a remote hilly pasture in Hereford when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the farmer, "If ...

Re: Please settle a wager .

Good grief to original poster...do you know how nature works? Ivy can be a bastard but if you cut it low down eventually you can be clear ...anythig upstream that has has been cut will die off ...it's not rocket science.

FOrgotten what thew topic was...sheesh!

Regardless of many apparent crap situations in my life, I consider myself to be an incredibly lucky person. Could anyone recommend an orphan children's charity that might be interested (for next year) in a good supply of organically (and lovingly grown) vegetables ...I know of one (sort of) in Herak...
