Quote from: Diasi on September 07, 2023, 04:33:10 PMWelcome to the forum Weapons Grade.It must have been a difficult decision leaving your two cats behind. I'm a Trump supporter as I like a politician who's daft enough to try & achieve what he promised during the 2016 election rallies.
Quote from: Weapons Grade on September 07, 2023, 04:54:45 PMHey, it was you know. Miss my cats and miss my wife, not necessarily in that order. Obama, Trump and now Biden. So what changed? None of that bunch would have got near the White House even thirty years ago. Times change and reflect the stupefied societies across the west we now live in. You'd love it over here in Europe. We're just about to discover a mythical green energy source, the politicans will change the earth's climate and by next week at the latest we'll all be equal. Honestly, bigly ugely.
Quote from: klondike on September 07, 2023, 04:52:37 PMWelcome Weapons Grade. Feel free to roust us up with some tales of your adventures in the big wide world. Let'sChat is a spin off from another forum that had some problems but has since recovered with mostly a fresh group of posters who went there from a forum that had some problems... It has been around a bit over a year but most of us have known each other on forums at least for considerably longer.Celery is often a major topic of conversation here but you can always skip those threads without causing offence.
Quote from: Diasi on September 07, 2023, 04:57:37 PMI'm in the UK, North Lincolnshire, but I like the USA political theatre.
Quote from: Weapons Grade on September 07, 2023, 05:18:56 PMin North Korea where I was told that I must be pretty stupid if I didn't even know Kim Jong Un was a desendent of a Sun God.
Quote from: Weapons Grade on September 07, 2023, 05:18:56 PMIf you tell me you identify as a stick of celery you know I'm going to give you an earful, don't you. Certainly, I have tales to tell about my travels, but they don't always go down well. If a population has been conditioned with years of mainstream media news about Putin is a monster, China is taking over the world and the Ukraine is a peace loving democratic oasis and the Azov Nazis are actually freedom fighters, I'd probably get the same reaction as I did in North Korea where I was told that I must be pretty stupid if I didn't even know Kim Jong Un was a desendent of a Sun God. It's difficult to get through indoctrination and most don't even want to.September 07, 2023, 05:23:57 PMOh, my mistake then. I thought you were an American. North Lincolnshire eh? Do they have buses and stuff up there? Did a court send you there as a punishment, or was it a self imposed exile?
Quote from: Diasi on September 07, 2023, 07:37:59 PMI first came to Lincolnshire via a job transfer but left when I retired early & moved to the South East coast.After my marriage broke up I couldn't afford to stay down South so my new female friend & I moved to Lincolnshire as I knew the area & decent detached houses were quite cheap by comparison.I wouldn't leave Lincolnshire now as it was where I lived with the said new female friend who I married not long after we moved here & where my happy memories still are.
Quote from: Michael Rolls on September 07, 2023, 06:59:52 PMwelcome aboard , Weapons Grade. I'm an elderly Englander, based in Scotland, a country I love despite its stupid ruling party. Can't begin how much it must be difficult to leave your good lady and menagerie behind - any chance of joining up?
Quote from: Weapons Grade on September 07, 2023, 09:27:36 PMYes, it is all about memories and especially if they're happy ones. As we get older they're all we have left.September 07, 2023, 09:38:54 PMAs I said, Thai immigration rules say no. I can visit for up to thirty days because after that I lose my pension credit benefits and have to start the process all over again.
Quote from: Diasi on September 07, 2023, 10:06:28 PMWhen you say Thai immigration rules say no, do you mean the rules that the Thai authorities impose or rules that the UK impose on retirees going to Thailand?Also I'm with Mike Rolls in thinking how dreadful it must be to have to make such a decision.
Quote from: GrannyMac on September 08, 2023, 09:02:50 AMCan anyone asylum in Thailand? 😉
