General Discussion / What was you favourite toy as a child
« on: July 19, 2014, 10:11:16 PM »
Most of us would have had a favourite toy when children.
Mine was a walkiing doll. When I held her hands she would walk moving her head
On one occasion her eyes went into her head  :'( and mum sent her to the dolls hospital and had them fitted back in  :)
Anyone else had a favourite toy (Apart from Fly who likes Barbie Dolls )

16 bags of Walkers crisps for 54p takes some beating.
Had a bag of the French Fries with a potted dog cob tonight. Nice  :P

Will check what we pay Fly but I think the Walkers were on offer and maybe running out of date so if you can guzzle them before they run out of date yes they were a good buy.  :-*

Quote from: Alsatian
It said that he'd been part of an entertainment team at a holiday camp!! You could tell too!

I cringed at that Alsatian, he really was poor, be enough to put anyone off.
The newbie made us laugh though as in our early cruising days we got lost so many times, mainly because  there were decks on the ship where you couldn't walk from front to back ( never can remember the proper names JRRRRRRRRRRR ??????
These days generally that isn't a problem.
I think if they concentrated more on what cruising is really like for the passengers it may encourage some people to try one, the cabins where they film the staff are nothing like the pax cabins  - or I wouldn't be cruising that's for sure

Don't know about the Barbie Doll - but I bet Lidl could give them a run - their crisps are lovely and you get a full bag not half a bag like Walkers.

Umpire - the only sense I could get from TT was from the Southampton Office.
We had no internet for 2/3 days and to cal the help line number is a nightmare.

The UK and USA always seem to defend Israel, who profess they are only interested in the 'tunnel' which Palestine's use.
This is a conflict which has been going for a long time.
Why are they covering up what is really happening?

Mmmm I don't think it's doing too much to promote cruising, but maybe it's not intending too.
Deputy Dan the would be cruise director - bit of a plank!
Best thing about the programme tonight was the sunset!
The balcony looked a bit small as well.

Loved that remark by a pax = 'all you can see it water' no sand then  ::)  :))

Different theories bantering about on this issue now.
Questions as to whether it was shot by people who didn't realise it was a passenger plane also Russia's still in the equation. Seems getting hold of the 'black box' is top priority for some??????

General Discussion / Re: Assisted Dying

I'm totally in favour of assisted dying and I hope someone will help me should my quality of life require it.

BTW - it's assisted dying.

I quoted from the programme Dave which was assisted suicide as I think that must have been the way it was being looked at.

Suppose to die is one thing but to die by means of other ways rather than just slipping away is another would you say?

Anyone agree with this?
I know there has been something on TV tonight but haven't watched it.
My thoughts - if someone is terminally ill and doesn't want to go to the bitter end, then why shouldn't they make the choice?
People who are fit and well may think it's wrong, but if roles were reversed would they think differently?
