Tong, keeping bees is one of the most interesting vocations and/or studies in psychology. Luzhkov (mayor of moscow) is a bee keeper. Are you interested in honey bees? :)

There are quite few but surely:

1. Russian humour is mainly in Russian (English is in English);
2. Humour (no matter the country of origin, is based on some local stories (history, politicians, ways of behaviour, ways of living), which can be understood only by locals

Yes I agree in a way. But there is a simularity in British humour and Russian humour. About Grannies or Babooskas waking across the road or climbing the stairs and trying to avoid them, and them carrying the big stick. The men acting as ladies, all similar comedy. Look at Mr Bean.

But Mr Bean is a visual actor, and has been successful. However the biggesr comedy is too complicated for the rest of the world, such as Only fools and Horses. Massive success in UK, But not understood anywhere else.

I visited Moscow for 4 weeks in 2007 and felt that I missed out on a lot because then because I knew, maybe, a dozen words of Russian. So I'd like to return with more vocabulary and confidence - then I can go back to Ostov in Novogireevo and give a bollocking to one particularly rude cashier who, several times, made me feel like a retard who'd crapped in his pants.

There are numerous people from this forum whom I'd love to meet and talk to face to face, and quite a few I'd enjoy getting wasted with.

Honey bees are amazing. They were the first things to know that the Earth is round (despite having a brain of less than a million neurons) - they navigate by using the sun as a reference point and can calculate its position even when it's on the other side of the world. They have a built in map of the sun's movements and learn local topography, and communicate to other bees the whereabouts of nectar up to 12km away by using a complex language of dancing and buzzing. It takes the lifetimes of 12 bees to make half a teaspoon of honey.

No, I'm not a bee keeper, but it's interesting that Luzhkov is. In the Western Isles we have a unique species of bee, which has 7 stripes....

-Are you a Psychopath? or just a dancer?
-Are you actually in Moscow?
-Why do you post on two Forums in Russia?
-Are you wearing a kilt?

:question: :zoom:

- A psychopath has a personality "disorder": my personality is merely "untidy".
The "dances with psychopaths" thing is a play on the film title "Dances with Wolves", in that I am quite comfortable with and form constructive relationships (on a good day) with people most others would rather avoid.

- No, I live on a Scottish island - next land to the west is Newfoundland.

- After visiting Moscow 3 years ago I wanted to find out about work possibilities/requirements/legalities/paperwork/etc....this has not proved fruitful. Ideally, I'd hoped to make a living from English-speaking expats with mental health problems: my presence on the forums being a subtle sort of advertising. In 3 years I've had negligible PM communications on the subject......so there is either no demand for my services or my posts have chased them all away.
I don't often post on the "other forum", for no particular reason other than that I was here first and established some rapport with a few people. I also like some of "the others", but full participation on both forums (fora???) would take more time than I have.

- I'm not wearing a kilt right now. I don't own a kilt (it's about 600 for the whole shebang), but hire the outfit for weddings. They are actually extremely comfortable to wear and are a babe magnet, despite my bony knees (I also lack a sufficiently large arse to make the kilt swoosh as I walk).

- Disability frightens me - being totally dependent on the mercy/goodwill of other people is scary. Because most people do not have any mercy or goodwill - even when they are paid well for it. Alzheimer's/stroke/catastrophic accident.........takes me onto your next question.

- I haven't considered suicide (as the best option) since my first marriage proved non-viable. As a professional carer (and by nature an enthusiastic amateur) my most important consideration would be not leaving too much mess - this incorporates a painless exit. I shall elaborate......

Suicide, however apposite from the suicide's perspective, inevitably leaves a bad legacy - the surviving loved ones/family/friends feel shit. The more important the suicidee was to a survivor, the more lasting impact it has...for more than one generation. Even when it is entirely understandable that someone kills himself to avoid pain and distress in the people he loves, it's messy (e.g. terminal illness with a long period of disability where someone kills himself before he becomes a burden)....the loved ones can feel betrayed.

Some people kill themselves with anger, and leave a nasty display.

- Really close friends? No. Sometimes I try to imagine having one, or two, but my imagination fails me. On-your-side-no-matter-what is a feature....but I've never had it. All my relationships have been conditional.

- Scottish nationalism. I'm English, actually. I don't really like nationalism - it smacks of parochialism and lowest-common-denominator-us-ism. The circumstances of my birth are not a personal achievement that I can feel proud of.

- My habitual tipple is red wine (Italian/Spanish/SA/French/Chilean/etc). But when I really want to get cunted - it's Drambuie.

- I was happiest at the birth of my son. What man wouldn't be?

4 - USA: because it's the USA.
5 - Russia: because of it's immensity and history and cheap vodka.

Continuous partying....throughout 1979 I virtually chain-smoked cannabis, but currently my excessive partying is restricted to Hogmanay celebrations which last 3-4 days here.

Hi, MickeyTong!

I am curious:
- What three main things do you respect in a human and the opposite – three things that you hate?
- Call please three things in women’s appearance, character or behavior which can attract your attention on the first meeting (it may be a chance meeting and of course I mean positive effect ;-)
- What is your hobby?
- What is your favorite place in a town of your living or may be not so far from your location ;)?

Thank u)

I respect professional competence/other talents, resilience to recover from setbacks, confidence which does not depend on denigrating others.
I hate hypocrisy, greed and wilful stupidity.

Some people (male, female, any age, any background) seem to be surrounded by a metre of fresh air, they exude personal quality.....
I am attracted to a woman who feels comfortable with how she looks and knows that style comes from inside. I'm attracted to confidence devoid of arrogance. I like a good voice, intelligence and courage. I'm attracted to a woman who is attracted to me.....(Duh.....I like people who like me.)

Reading is a compulsive pastime, but sometimes I like to fool myself that I can play the guitar and sing. I enjoy cooking, but only if I can swear a lot when things don't progress smoothly.

There are many beaches near where I live and even in summer they are largely deserted. The sand is white and the Atlantic is crystal-clear (but cold even in summer, despite the Gulf Stream).

However, trees are a rarity here, so I enjoy the Castle grounds in my town, where there are many trees.

I didn't bring anything to cook.....only chocolate and vodka. I had only a very limited experience of Russian cuisine, because I didn't know what to ask for or how to ask for it.
I was very impressed with Russian chocolate.

I wasn't in Moscow long enough to become habituated to anything, but at first I did miss cheap cigarettes.

Vegetarians a moral position; forgiveable if driven by genuine dietry need; or stuff your mates new girlfriend does to make an impact in the curry house?

I was vegetarian for 5 years, in disgust at the obscenity of factory farming. As they say, "Meat is murder, but a bacon sarnie is justifiable homicide" - it took only 1 cocktail sausage to return me to full carnivorous indulgence. Until then, I'd imagined myself to be a man of principle.....But still, a veg thali in a good Hindu-run restaurant is scrumyum.

smoking ban in pubs, your views please.

Smoking.......I recently stopped smoking for the umpteenth time since 1972, so the pub ban suits me. However - a pub is a licensed, specially designated place where adults go to deliberately consume a drug (alcohol) and where tobacco has historically been smoked. Granted that no one should be obliged to work in an unhealthy environment, but no one is obliged to work in a pub. I think the ban fits in with the alcohol industry's family-friendly "responsible" PR....personally, I like pubs with a bit of sleaze, places where children and other delicate petals are not allowed.

OK, seriously now:

Having spent a considerable part of my life in the financial field, Douglas on the Isle of Man was a, let's say, business excursion. When there, I did notice a certain peculiarity with the indigenous population unbeknown to me on my first visit. They had a few certain recognizable facial characteristics that seemed to be prevalent throughout the rest of the original settlers as if they all had been related. Certainly unidentifiable to me was their uncanny ability to recognize peculiar characteristics of different families throughout the Island and their ability to trace their ancestry to a common suitor.

So my question is: Exactly how big is the place you live on and if it as small as Douglas then when can we expect Fibre there?

I have a son aged 25, from my first marriage - he doesn't like me and we are not in contact.

I've lived in several parts of the island since coming here 14 years ago, and I think I've settled into a comfortable rut rather than happiness. There's been no excitement since about 2 years ago when the Lord's Day Observance Society protested at the airport against the first plane to land here on a Sunday.

Most young people leave the island for higher education and/or employment.
People here tend to be either teetotal or excessive drinkers/druggers. When I first arrived here I socialised with the fishing community: when these guys are at sea they are (supposedly) 100% sober and straight, but as soon as they land the party starts - alcohol, speed and hash to establish a baseline, and a couple of microdots for fun.

Our catchment area is the whole of the Western Isles, population about 27000. Bear in mind that there's a range of looniness, with anxiety disorders and mood disorders being most common (apart from substance misuse problems). Not everyone needs a hospital bed, not everyone needs medication. People get better, people relapse.

Usually only once a year, around Burns' Night. Depending on which butcher you buy it from it can range from so tasty you can't tell what it's made from, to something instantly recognisable as offal.

But when I'm away from home, you can't beat a Full Scottish Breakfast: haggis, black pudding, bacon, sausage, potato scone, fried egg, mushrooms and beans. 'S math sinn!

Jeez, you made me homesick - to the point of booking some leave, need some finer details, (until your post I was under the impression that you couldn't beat a 'Belfast fry') - willing to experiment but I want to get it right:

is this a meal you would prepare at home or is it best purchased from a cafe? Contents wise: ketchup or brown sauce? Toast: white or brown; buttered or dry? Fried Bread? No tomatoes? Do you have white pudding in Scotlandia? Mushrooms grilled, fried or boiled? suitable accompanying beverage Tea / Coffee / Irn Bru?

thank you

Of course you can do it at home - if you can be bothered with faff in the morning......but I only eat it from a cafe. Brown sauce is a must, and buttered white bread, or fried bread. I forgot about the grilled tomatoes and grilled mushrooms. White pudding is on the menu (but I don't like it). All washed down with strong tea. (Irn brew to start with if you have a hangover.)

Shall I tell you about my life
They say I'm a man of the world
I've flown across every tide
And I've seen lots of pretty girls

I guess I've got everything I need
I would't ask for more
And there's no one I'd rather be
But I just wish that I'd never been born


And I need a good woman
to make me feel like a good man should
I don't say I'm a good man
Oh, but I would be if I could

I could tell you about my life
And keep you amused I'm sure
About all the times I've cried
And how I don't want to be sad anymore
And how I wish I was in love

I'd been on the verge of divorcing his mother when she announced that she was pregnant......so I stayed with the venomous bitch until he was 6, largely because she threatened to kill herself and him if I left. Subsequently, she made contact with him very difficult and infrequent, and evidently coached him in what to say to me. After another 2 years I left town and moved here, with no contact after that.

It was hard for me..... until I met him again soon after his 18th birthday. He had developed encephalitis and was in hospital, so his mother phoned my workplace. He had "allegedly" become epileptic after this, but his "seizures" were bad imitations....I spent a couple of weeks seeing him every day, and then phone calls every day....he would say very little (but still coached by his mother), but his mother would jabber on for up to 2 hours, making it clear that if I wanted any contact with him it would be entirely on her terms. For about a year this worked on my feelings of guilt, but I finally dropped the guilt and fully accepted that divorcing her had been the right thing to do, and that there was nothing I could do now to get anything like a good relationship with my son.

.........that there was nothing I could do now to get anything like a good relationship with my son.Maybe he sees things through his own eyes and is able to make his own independent decisions at some point in the future. It certainly sounds like you did absolutely everything you possibly could, and much more, to make things work. But there are limits and certainly a time to stop bending over backwards and jumping triple somersaults while holding an unboiled egg in a spoon in your mouth.

Good that you were able to drop the guilt trip. Who knows, maybe he's interested to see who his father is one day. He can certainly know that you were around in his early years and that you cared. Maybe sons learn to grow up and not to believe everything that they're told or maybe he's been totally brainwashed. Maybe he calls you sometime if he'd like to. I hope it for you Mickey. It's good when sons and dads are together - good for both the sons and the dads - although I know it's not always possible but we do our best.

I love the blues. So do people both younger and older than me. I think it's an acquired taste that comes from personally experiencing loss, pain, sadness, longings which will never be fulfilled.....Maybe the "young" are too optimistic, or feel themselves too invulnerable, for blues music to resonate with them.

Here is a snippet of news from where I live...

http://www.hebrides-news.com/prison_has_no_fear_23610.html

"Calum John Macinnes, 34, of 16 Keose, Lewis, has appeared in court 24 times and sent to jail on 11 occasions, including eight spells in the past three years, his lawyer explained."
"As he was being driven to Stornoway in a police vehicle he told officers he knew where they stayed and threatened to burn down their houses..."

This low-grade specimen of humanity was given a 6 month prison sentence (which means he'll be home after 3 months).

In most parts of the world if you threatened to burn down a cop's house....your fecking body wouldn't be found....

On a side note - I used to live in Keose 12-ish years ago, and I know C J MacInnes and his 2 younger brothers. They are a family of scrotes. Keose is a very small and beautiful village of maybe 25 homes - everyone knows everyone, and nobody locks their doors (I came home one afternoon to find the postman sitting in my kitchen drinking a pot of my tea, which he had made for himself. He had the decency to offer me a cup). Upstairs I grew my own cannabis from seeds taken from the half kilo I brought home from Zimbabwe after my Mum died. After the crop was harvested I was curious to know what would happen to the male plants (which are psychoactively inert), and left a few to carry on.
Well....my partner and I went to Inverness for a few days and when we returned we discovered we had been robbed!!!!!!!!

Nope. It was the MacInnes boys and a friend of theirs, who took alcohol, lighters and useless male plants. So, with a few friends I went to their house to ask for the return of my property (which included a particularly nice soapstone chillum with sentimental value), in a very civil manner as their parents were present. Of course they denied doing the deed.

The next night all my car tyres were punctured, so I called the police and related the background story, including the stolen cannabis plants....

A couple of years later when I was the Drug and Alcohol Liaison Nurse I was required to contribute to the local Drugs and Alcohol Action Team, whose remit was to formulate plans to "tackle the issues". It included people from the health service, social services, education department, the press, voluntary agencies, churches and....the police. The first meeting I attended was a bit uncomfortable for me because the police representative was the same cop to whom I'd reported my plants being nicked. Fortunately, by this time I'd had my hair cut and looked respectable, apart from the earrings.
