Good bye to Gibraltar from the cats.

The first of us to leave…

Scholastica, Niamh, and Richard are all set for the beginning of their great adventure. They are going just across the border to La Línea de la Concepción to begin their chauffeur-driven journey to Caergybi. They have no need of quarantine as they have their nice Gibraltarian EU pet passports. They are the equivalent of the…

Politicians sometimes surprise me…

Every now and then, politicians surprise me. For instance, The Rt Hon Peter Robinson MP MLA is supporting religious freedom and freedom of conscience.

Earlier this month, there were figures with scoliosis or brittle bone disease modelling the latest fashions in Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse. The campaign was…

Having rejected our name and substituted “Friend”, the writer did not even extend the usual courtesies of prefixing it with “Dear”. Furthermore, I do not believe that he and I have ever…

An hour outside…

Today, I made it outside. After nearly a week of being indoors, I decided that the visit of Andrew’s old friend from irc, Craig, was a reason to get up and head out. I made it down to Casemates Square where Andrew and I had some breakfast in Café Modelo. Met up with Craig and…
