    I have not followed progress avidly but one thing I do wonder though is – Now that they are settled in California and have left many of their issues behind then why are they raking them up again? Surely if you leave a bad situation you are normally wanting to forget about it?


    True . but when people publically s…[Read more]

  • I saw parts of the interview  on Dutch TV.

    What’s obvious is that this is really a family matter which has got so totally out of hand mainly due to the interference of gossip columns gutter press and speculation plus a public hunger for the misery of others.

    I think the vaccine is going to give some protection but its not foolproof and opening borders is a sure way to get this thing started again. I think anyone silly enough to think of going on holiday right now is just taking a foolish risk. Latest news is that some poorer countries wont have their vaccine until 2024 .

    I think it will be wise to…[Read more]

  • [quote quote=228682]It’s sad to hear that Cassandra. We would never want to be there but there are events that have happened through the years, even in Europe, in which similar has happened. It just shows how barbaric people can be when they think they have the upper hand.

  • [quote quote=228437]Nothing else at the moment. I suppose if I found something in an area of interest, I would try it out. I’m so used to everyone just using social media rather than forums, but I like this format better!



    Agreed social media is great but this allows for more focused discussions and I like that.

    But is is e…[Read more]
