    Well, we're no longer in the EU and history is made.

              I feel very foreign, and seem to have developed slight French accent overnight. Ah well, better go back keeping an eye on the larder so that we don't run out of beans. ;)

                      Me too, Selleri, and I was born there! :-) I hope it works out, though. Despite the vindictive attitude of some Brits. They've got what they wanted so perhaps now they''ll tone down the invective. Or perhaps not ....On a brighter note, there have been some very heartwarming words from the Pres and Alain Rousset (Pres of Region Nouvelle Aquitaine) confirming how much they value the ex-pats here, and reassuring them that they're lives won't be destroyed by what is happening. It's nice to think that they care :-))

                          I'm certain there will be a continuation of the invective Noisette, as long as senior members of the EU come out with things such as "Well, there's only one UK but there's 27 of us, so who do you think is in the stronger position?"... This is not going to be a pleasant set of negotiations this year

                            Wait a minute... I see everyone here. I thought the sky was supposed fall at the stroke of the bell?:heehee:

                            And here you all are. So glad we're still strong in numbers. :hapydancsmil:

                            Interesting times are coming and I, for one, will be very attentive in order to witness the dynamics of a free UK. :)

                                I suppose you do, Andy, but having had a few ups and downs yourself recently, I must say I'm surprised that you've so little empathy for the people whose lives are being wrecked by this business, whether in Britain or elsewhere. Sh1t-stirring media hype and politicians' posturings aside, it seems to have brought out a very nasty side of human nature :-(
