I think that you are right oldtimer. I find it strange that a rude comment from someone like MW is allowed to stand and innocuous retorts to it are deleted. That really is bullying. However, what the hey, it is for sale.

MW said… Perhaps after Tomkin's posts, I understood more fully from that and what I saw this morning on the TV just how difficult it can be for some to live here and that is without fully integrating which didn't seem to be much more than trying to communicate with the locals and sharing some wine a...

The travel firm said it had seen a "deterioration of trading", due to political unrest in Egypt and Tunisia and floods in Thailand.

Well, this thread has made it to forty pages and, just to go along with the good old forum exaggeration, I’ll venture that there are fewer than that number of people who had come here with any sort of commitment to stay and have now left but, hey, what do I know?. Tomkin made some reasonable points....

Seedy, you asked. Lyn replied, correctly. In theory, it should be writers' group. Does anyone care? Yes, if they are like me. Does anyone else care? Probably not but that is not the point. You asked and Lyn replied, correctly.

Well, Seedy, Google is great, if it gives you the full story. However, going straight to Wikipedia is often far better. And, jakemakes3 is more correct. Wikipedia is great. If you search for flour and then, from the left hand panel, choose Българск ...
