  1. I have bank A/Cs in Thailand and UK. I have a WILL for UK family and a WILL for the Thai family, and never the twain shall meet. Neither one know details of the other, and neither WILL makes mention of the the other. The police are usually the first to be notified of your death, who then notify the embassy. The embassy notify the relevant authorities who then notify the next of kin. This can be done very quickly providing you have filled the name of the person you wish notified, in the back of your passport.
  2. Actually 79 now. And you can only use your head as there were no calculators back then. I like it when shopping give the 105 for the item priced at 55, and out cones the calculator.
  3. The housekeeper got it, my son and wife got it, also her mother and sister got it. But that's only five, I really can't speak for the rest.
  4. Sorry I can't give a proper link to this, but gov.uk/topic/health/protection/infectious diseases states 'As of 19th March 2020, COVID 19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious disease'. Thats the best I can read of a photo of an official UK HCID. See the attached and see what you think?
  5. Why not, when we know better. I seem to remember a saying of, 'A fool and his money are soon parted'. I don't think that has changed. On the other hand, we are not all skinflints or spending more on cheap seconds.
  6. A certain country wants to rule the world by fair means or foul, have you not noticed?
  7. So, those people who dive into the bins for discarded plastic bottles and such like, should do very well out of this government scheme???? Such generosity is overwhelming.
  8. Yes the Cherries were the minnows back then. They have done very well over the years, not that I follow them or ever did. The ladies who owned the Kings Park ground gave the club some encouragement in that if the club should reach the 2nd division, the ground would be given to the club. However, the ladies died before that event and their estate was, to my knowledge, divided between the borough council and the Bournemouth NHS hospital, hence the new Bmth hospital on Castle Lane. Chase Manhattan took over the Cooper-Dean house but I don't know details. You're possibly not interested, as its all local history.
  9. Bournemouth 1 Manchester United 2 1957 A cup match with Bmth I-0 up at half time. The whole town were cheering the Cherries, but alas it was not to be. Get your calculator out, I was 15 back then.
  10. And now go to another immigration office in a different province and compare answers. It would be interesting to know.
  11. The way of the world is what it is. I would suggest you take another look and lay blame at the feet of those who lead. We all vote for those leaders, hoping for change. The pendulum swings back and forth, but the only say we have, is the tick or cross on the ballot paper. I will freely admit mistakes have been made in the past, we can all name a few obvious ones, but in many ways the general public had no say in those actions. It all comes down to, what can you do as an individual, to change the path any government chooses to follow? Other than full on civil war, we follow the leaders we voted for.
  12. If that's an open invitation, I'll pass if you don't mind.
  13. Not going to say you are right, but equally I won't say you are wrong. Thailand has had some quite high figures but these were mostly from around the Bangkok area. I think the same applies to its direct neighbours, the major city's being the most effected. Like so many here on TV believe, the numbers don't add up, but we have no real way of confirmation. Russia, the US, UK and EU appear to have been hit very badly, but again, can we confirm the numbers? Same with the south American countries. We cannot confirm, and speculation only causes confusion.
