What type of relationship are you looking for? Do you want a fling, a
secret affair or even just a one-night stand? Or would you prefer to be
colleagues, best friends, or maybe marriage partners? Please let me know.
Let me ask you a simple question to test your general knowledge. What do
you get if you combine Portugal, Ghana, the US, Algeria, France, Brazil
and Argentina? And no, the answer is not a World Cup victory.
As a result of Germany's World Cup win, 13 July 2014 will go into the history books as a day of national celebration. But should the country be celebrating 8 July 2014 just as much — and for a reason other than football?
I'd like to ask you two very simple questions and I'd like some straightforward answers, please. The questions are (a) would
you be prepared to pay to read this blog and (b) if so, how much would
you be willing to fork out each week?
After 25 years of living in Germany, I can look back and say that I have never for one moment regretted my move from the United Kingdom. At the same time, I still love the UK and its people, with their humour and resolve.
When a friend moaned that “the computer keeps crashing and it’s so damn slow”, I had a feeling there was more to her problem than she realized. It wasn't her “ancient” three-year-old computer, but her “young and innocent” 13-year-old son.
I know, I know. My prediction a few weeks ago that England would win the
World Cup is looking a bit shaky after the team's defeat in their
opening game against Italy on Saturday night. But hope springs eternal.
