Re: Super Blood Wolf Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 20/21st

Just a coincidence that today is a blood moon lunar eclipse and a 6.7 (technically yesterday) occurs. 2010 also occurred during a full moon. Yeah just a coincidence, how many major quakes have occurred when there wasn't a full moon? There was a guy after Christchurch quakes called Ken Ring aka the ...

Re: Brexit

I reckon the EU must be getting to a point of "just piss of already Britain " it's not as if they haven't got enough other things going on there at the moment that need their attention, The EU can't hang around waiting for Britian to sort their shit out , which they haven't been able to come close t...

Re: Fresh milk and farmers cheese

Given up dairy!!?? That’s a big statement , coming from El Lechero. Did you find any satisfactory cheese substitute? Haha yeah, I'll still eat it if we go out, on pizza or something like that but not really prepared to keep buying (and paying more than in NZ) inferior dairy products, I'll survive o...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

there is a fine line, judgment call regarding indivdual employees. probably bigger issue with gringos just ariving is them trying to be too friendly, buddy, buddy with an employee or their family. without a much better feal for the culture, it almost always causes problems and misunderstandings. ke...

Re: The official thread re the future Valpo megaquake

Well, that was a biggie in Serena. Scenes of panic, tsunami warning, things falling down, electricity off. Still getting the odd little aftershock. I bet , yeah it looked like scenes of panic alright on Twitter videos, as is to be expected, maybe they should remember that next time they always try ...

Re: The official thread re the future Valpo megaquake

Well the last one was 1730 with an estimated 300 year cycle I believe when they looked at sediment strata some years ago. The 1906 one apparently was not a part of that fracture. I looked up that 1906 you mentioned (an 8.2) and found out there were 12, yes 12 !! Earthquakes over 7.0 over a 16 year ...

Re: The official thread re the future Valpo megaquake

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

Out of curiosity, I wonder how many of the responders on this topic have ever actually been in this situation? I have, a long time ago, but certainly never for millions of Pesos. Three times, once for 2 million and another for 1.7 million, and one for 500k managed to eventually recoup about 1 milli...

Re: Brexit

When you are thinking how screwed up and paperwok and beauracracy is annoying and sometimes wonder how did dongs get so complicated in your life and or your business, just chuckle to yourself and think , Brexit , that's what I do, it seems to help.
