vossy7 et al,

Apologies for being absent, but as anticipated the start to my year has been extremely busy as I am sure you have seen on the media - I have been in and out of a few places on work, some reasonably pleasant, some far from pleasant! ;)

I return to the sandpit early next week, but will log in when I can.....

Keep safe One & All :)

BTW, it is note and of great historical importance that the US of A heralded their first Black President approx 8 years ago, it now seems that against all wisdom they may have to welcome their first Orange President ;)

LOL! :D Without specifically naming any posters by name, admittedly it has been most refreshing not reading so much 'doom & gloom', Russia bashing and frothy rants. There is definitely too much 'doom & gloom on the Globe at the moment; I am not sure we need to read so much about here! But, each to his or her own :10310:

Thanks Vossy7 - Dia Duit!

BTW, Having noted 'Slainte Chugat' from your video, do you think that the English slang 'Chugging' I learnt in a UK public house is derived from 'Chugat'? ;)

I trust that your lovely ladies are in good fettle and that your Babushka is still carefully & expertly tending to your garden estate? It will soon be time for her to paint all that woodwork! ;)

Welcome back.:) Doom&gloom observations not necessarily stop one from building one's private paradise and/or even cashing in on doom&gloom (you, of all people here, know more than all of us combined about that, I assume, so no need to be shy).

Oh I really wish I could tell you how I feel about this post. Why don't you take a break and let your elderly mother make you something to eat. Then you can have some tea and go to bed.

I have already dined in a nice restaurant full of laughing euro-holders just like me, but I can indeed do with a cup of tea. However, leave my mother alone. How is your squatting doing? Nice and cozy down there?

Chugging = Charity Mugging
Chugger = Charity Mugger

The term given to people that work fork charities on a commission basis and aggressively stop people on the street.

Welcome back.:) Doom&gloom observations not necessarily stop one from building one's private paradise and/or even cashing in on doom&gloom (you, of all people here, know more than all of us combined about that, I assume, so no need to be shy).

RL, I am not shy about living in my mini-paradise which has benefited from the doom & gloom. Allow me to explain, like many others with my previously earned skills working for Governments / Military, I earn my money by seeking to successfully protect People & High Value Assets in High Risk countries, or areas within countries, from direct or indirect threats ranged against them; these could include from extremism, civil unrest, local or regional conflict, Kidnap, Serious & Organised Crime, Assassination etc.

My task is to effectively produce and manage mitigation strategies to counter the threat(s). For instance, in a North African country approximately 3 years, I deployed to protect a high occupancy building surrounded by very angry, well armed demonstrators - Suffice to say, after very quickly devising mitigation measures and implementing them over a period of 3 days & nights of being under almost relentless attack, I successfully managed to lead just under 200 people alive from the building to a place of safety / secure assembly area.

So, yes I do benefit from the 'doom & gloom', but my main task is to extract people from the 'doom & gloom', or allow those to safely operate within the 'doom & gloom'.

Somebody recently asked me how many people I have killed. To me that is irrelevant, those whom have died, deserved to die and were all legal deaths. It is better to ask, how many are alive today - that number is well into many 100s across many countries and religions - Now, most importantly, I am sure that those who actually knew that they were under threat and are alive today are far from 'gloomy'! That is the most satisfying part of my job apart from returning after each deployment ;)

To lighten the mood, a joke.............

An Australian tour guide was showing a group of American tourists the Top End.

On their way to Kakadu he was describing the amazing abilities of the Australian Aborigines to track man or beast over land, through the air and under the sea.
The Americans were incredulous.

Later in the day, as the group rounded a bend on the highway they discovered, lying in the middle of the road, an Aborigine...
He had one ear pressed to the white line, whilst his left leg was held high in the air!

The bus stopped and the guide and the tourists gathered around the prostrate Aborigine...

"Hey Jacky," said the tour guide, "what are you tracking and what are you listening for?"

The aborigine replied,

"Down the road about 25 miles is a 1971 Valiant Ute... It's a red one… the left front tyre is bald...
The front end is out of whack, and him got bloody dents in every panel...
There are 9 black fellas in the back, all drinking warm sherry.
There are 3 kangaroos on the roof rack and 4 dogs on the front seat."

The American tourists moved forward, astounded by this precise and detailed knowledge.

"God Lord man, how do you know all that?," asked one.

The Aborigine replied:... ‘I fell out the ****en’ thing about half an hour ago!" :D
