  1. 46651 I am innocent. We had only one more day of snow during that period. Since then we only have lots of wind and cold.
  2. I haven't read anything about new activity of U2 recently. Even not whether they are writing new songs or not. I have always predicted the band has (at least) three new albums in them (that is probably bad English), rereleases not included. And I hope there is still unheard material in the vaults. Inhaler, the band of Bono's son Elijah, releases its first album 'It Won't Always Be Like This' on July 16 by the way.
  3. 45642 We had snow here today, April 5. Not real flakes, more a kind of powder snow. But snow indeed. And it was freezing cold.
  4. 45639 The vaccination in Great Britain seems to go very fast. Much faster than here in Belgium. Not even fifteen percent of the population here has got a shot in the arm by now.
  5. 45637 Since last Saturday we are in the third lockdown as a result of corona. It lasts for four weeks. This time I was just in time to have a haircuit before the hairdressers closed their doors. After the previous lockdown and eleven weeks without a haircut looked like a clochard.
  6. 45626 As you know Belgium is a country with Dutch and French speaking people (and a few thousands whose language is German). Both national languages are taught in the two communities. My language is Dutch (Nederlands), not French by the way.
  7. 45620 Here in Belgium you can choose for Latin or Greek in secondary school. I don't know if that is so in the UK.
  8. 45617 I don't know anything about Latin, but I can count. It's a pity though there is no nice round number in sight.
  9. 45606 We had a winter offensive here with ice cold temperatures up to minus fifteen at night and lots of snow. It lasted for seven consecutive days. Yesterday/Sunday it began to thaw and now all the ice and snow is gone.
  10. I want to order a few items from the UK Shop (yes, I'm aware I apparently take a risk when I read the comments here), but I wonder if I'll have to pay a surplus since the UK isn't a member of the European Union anymore. A recent order from Great Britain through eBay has costed me a lot. The extra fees represented almost halve of the price of the item I bought and that is a lot.
  11. 45603 Snow has been predicted here for tonight and tomorrow. And the coming days the temperature will be below zero. That's a surprise. I thought winter was more or less over.
  12. 45599 Astonishing. This the first post here in eight days. The weather in Belgium is very mild for the time of the year. Plenty of rain and wind, but the cold has gone. It seems we will have this year only one day of snow. That was around two weeks ago.
  13. 45596 Counting on a grey and windy day. We had snow here on Saturday that only lasted one day. On Sunday all snowflakes were gone.
  14. 45592 A count a day keeps the doctor away. (or is that an apple? )
  15. 45590 You remembered me to count. Thanks.
  16. This was on holiday in Ireland a few years ago.
  17. This is an excellent choice for the annual gift. Although I already have a copy of the show (U2 was on fire that day!) I am looking forward to receive the package in the new year.
