Good trick, Weavis! I need some tuck. I'm going to go out and do this right now to every boat I see!

He didnt leave it to me in his will so it only works so far.

Nice man. Was in 'business' and that was as much as I was told and as much as I wanted to know. i think it was property as he seemed to have a few places around.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Another typical Welsh day. Dark, slight rain.
Could be worse, it could be nice and I couldnt see the view for the heavy rain.

A lot of the top economists are predicting another financial collapse before the end of the year. On the bright side, there will be a lot of cheap boats, and on the dark side, we wont be able to afford them.

Life is so interesting.

38 degrees C (100 degrees F) here with no wind. Mega and super yachts as far as the eye can see in all directions.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

It'll be 89 F here today. THats (89 - 32) 5/9 x 1 x 1.

See. Another reason for not living in Europe. YOu go around having to calculate everything. Street signs. Distance. It makes you sad, and gives you an accent.

I have to interview someone today. I will ask him a trick question (why is a banana?) and saw the front legs of his chair to be slightly lower than the other, and make one just a hair lower, so it wobbles.

It will be fun.

I am a fun monkey.

Im not good with interviews. There is an immediate hate with the process either being the statue or the pigeon.

When a candidate turns up, I turn him or her loose on the patients for 1 hour. Watch how they does. I then check references and ask around to get personal info......... I then give a tricky but doable patient 'what if' scenario.

And then, do I like him or her.

Job is secured or lost on the last one.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Gary,

You and the apeman need to get a boat.

The Pamster and I found a beautiful bay 20 miles south of Olbia today, crystal clear water, almost totally deserted, wonderful small beach with only a few people. Went snorkeling, paddle boarding, swimming. We'll probably stay a couple of days.

Ken
