Ski hill shut down because of the cold sounds so paradoxical. Don't apologise, Johnny, as I prefer you going outdoors and having fresh air and enjoying nature rather than sitting behind a keyboard. We have had a gloriously sunny day here. Very enjoyable. Have had two viewing and the last lady suddenly turned up with her hubby and made me repeat my pitch!Hello alp and sorry for the late reply. When you asked about the temp here in Alberta, it was above freezing. But right now the temp is -25C. The snow stopped yesterday so I may get down to the river and see how my birds are doing.
They are shutting down the Olympic ski hill today because of the cold.View attachment 49377
Funny you should mention elderly guy. Son complained that he was nearly mown down by an old man on his mobility scooter! I can't believe that he is still mentioning about that as it happened years ago. Must have been a terrifying experience.Hi,
Not many problems locally roadrunner with bikes. It's so hilly around here a bike rider needs to be super fit and the only bike I'd consider riding would have at least 750cc.
I used to walk up to the post office in the village; then down to our local shop to buy Bron a couple of girlie mags returning home along the valley bottom before climbing again up to our private estate; about three miles in total but I gave it up because it used to flatten me; a number of times as I've returned walking up the lane I would walk past an elderly guy pedalling furiously hardly getting anywhere; I presume he must have died of an heart attack? I do see bike riders and always think how dangerous it now is to ride a bike locally on our very congested roads; vehicles drivers are now expected to give a cycle the width of an airfield if being passed otherwise get a fine for passing too closely.
Kind regards, Colin.
Bitcoin is tumbling. I think the only safe way to get rich is to buy premium bond every month rather than leaving them to the bank. Don't forget that with premium bond, you don't lose your capital. Go on, Colin. Try putting away £100 for 1 year every month. I am sure it will work out better than buying any shares or get rich bitcoins. You might not get anything, but you will not lose your capital. Incidentally, we lost £2.50 last week for the £112 m of Euro million. NOT A SINGLE NUMBER! The only winner is the CEO!Hi,
I keep receiving unwanted emails about "Bitcoin" I keep adding these to spam and deleting them but they keep coming. I don't believe in get rich quick schemes however attractive they appear to be; eventually the bubble bursts ending in tears for many. I wonder how many have started with a small investment "to test the water" and having received a quick healthy profit are becoming greedy which is normal human behaviour investing larger amounts? Better safe being a tortoise than losing the lot being a hare.
Years ago a former neighbour was bragging to me that he was going to retire at the age of 55? He was investing lots of money receiving over 15% interest on the money whilst our savings as usual paid very little interest indeed; I retired aged 53 whilst this former neighbour was still working aged 73; he's recently moved downsizing his house?
The weather is poor here again today hence I'm a keyboard warrior; I've added this just for interest it definitely being in the news.
Kind regards, Colin.
How about this addition?As a cyclist, I'm always hearing from other cyclists about how they're so envious of the cycling tracks in places such as Denmark and the Netherlands. I was never impressed, simply because of the congested bike traffic, like seen in the video below.
And now there are news stories to give me more reason not to like their cycling tracks, especially the electric bikes which can travel quite fast.
A rapid rise in the number of scooters, e-bikes, mini electric cars and hoverboards in the Netherlands and the complexity of regulations on their use is making it impossible to keep the country’s cycle lanes safe, the leader of the Dutch police union has warned.
Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Rotterdam are rushing through different rules about the sort of vehicles allowed on their increasingly crowded lanes, leaving everyone confused, it is claimed.
On Tuesday Amsterdam announced that slower mopeds, known as a snorfiets, would be banned from the bike paths from April. Utrecht is introducing a similar ban at the end of the next year.
But Birò cars, four-wheeled electric vehicles with two seats side by side and a top speed of 34 mph, can still be driven on cycle lanes anywhere in the country.
Yes, some security guard told me to do so. And that's years ago. He said not to buy one block.Hi,
What a run around just to invest in premium bonds; I've now got a block of £200 and will increase this over five weeks to bring it to £1,000 and then wait? I decided to spread the amount rather than put it all into one block.
Next to an allotment alp; when are you moving in?
