Re: Another Warning About The Philippines

Sadly I think there is as much chance of Duterte ending up in the swamp as there is of Imelda Marcos apologising for all her husband's litany of crimes and returning the billions they plundered from the state. Odd how she is still adored by so many in that country she and Ferdinand raped so effectiv...

Re: A Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood

Generally I do not like writting trip reports for no other reason than I am lazy . . . There have been quite a number of new topics and posts added to others in recent weeks. Surely if those who are regular attenders at gay venues decide for whatever reason they don't want to post, that in itself i...

Re: A Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood

Sounds a lovely day! Are thoughts of relocating to Cambodia receding?

I guess it could have something to do with some bar and other nightlife regulars posting gay topics on other forums who choose not to do so here.

Re: The Lady Was Neither Impressive nor Her Arguments Persuasive

Off mine, too, and I had planned to go in February. Sad that it is the ordinary people who really need the tourist income. But the sort of mass deportation and ethnic cleansing we are seeing is hideous. Despite the balancing act she has to maintain, I cannot believe someone of Aung San Suu Kyi's int...

Re: Where's the Protein?

since iron is mentioned, I also didn't see any iron tablets in Thailand in Boots, Watsons or some of the other shops. Here in the UK, they are available in all the large supermarkets & pharmacies. I have also noticed this. For years I have bought the Centrum nutritional supplement pills in Hong...

The Lady Was Neither Impressive nor Her Arguments Persuasive

For many, many years Aung San Suu Kyi was one of the most admired women in the world. She was credited as being the primary reason for the conversion of Myanmar away from strict dictatorship back to a form of democracy. After the death of Mandela, she and the Dalai Lama, joined in the view of many b...

Re: What happened to North Korea?

As has been said before, the examples of the US attitude to those who have given up nuclear weapons is hardly much inspiration to Kim. Libya? Gaddafi dead and his country in a shambles. Iran? Trump has threatened to tear up the nuclear deal signed by six countries, although how he can do that unilat...

Re: What happened to North Korea?

Trump's latest tweet shows just how much - oops, how little! - the pea-brain knows about North Korea. This emerged a few hours ago- I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad! Last time I heard there were p...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Last night Alec Baldwin picked up an Emmy for his SNL appearances as the Trump. Nice monolgue from Stephen Colbert. Here's part - But if we’re honest with ourselves, and as artists, I think we have to be honest with ourselves. We know that the biggest TV star of the last year is Donald Trump. Yeah. ...
