Re: The Mallorca Squad

Sometimes you just have to accept that somethings in life are too big to overcome.

Then go sailing.....

But you don't have a boat yet, or do you?

Re: The Mallorca Squad

It could be worse Weavis. You should go sailing sooner rather than later ...

I will get the energy up to go in a while. Just taking the tranquillo approach until a balance forms.

As one door closes another slams in your face.

Vida loco

Re: The Mallorca Squad

My buddy has a lovely Princess motor yacht.
I can see the attraction....
And the need for a huge income to run the thing...

I dont think anyone is not getting along here Salty..... the written word is a easy to misinterpret...
Hoppy just wants to know if I have secretly bought a boat for Mallorca.. the answer is no...
Praire is a long time Mallorca cruiser and catching me up to date... She is Canadian so the humour is almost Brit...

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Sad news about Monte passing away.
Brings all our own problems into perspective.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

In Olbia riding around on my new Brompton folding circus bike.

Much warmer here than in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, 'gotta love this global warming that takes place once a year.

Some kinda fried meat festival taking place this weekend in town. Lots of small projects to begin, but right now catching up on severe jet lag and slowing down from working seven days per week.

I want to buy some of the salted pork, what kind would you recommend here in Italy? I'd like to buy the entire leg and have it on one of those racks where I can cut off what I want

Limited internet here, I hadn't read any of the posts prior to writing. Very sad news about Monte.

Prosciutto di Parma is the most common.. but try some of the local hams from Sardinia.. also Tuscan.. if you can get it..
Also its best hung.. with a small dish below to catch the dripping which adds flavour to any cooked dishes.

I hadn't read the thread about his passing when I read this post. Gary, this fellow in Andraitx, that wasn't Monte was it? Terrible either way, but someone we 'knew'.... would be awful.

No mate.. Jen and Monte are in the Caribbean..
The Frenchman is as far as I'm aware not a CF member.. tho' our sympathies go out to his family as well..
