Correct. #2 is difficult but from the same genre and era (late 60's/early 70's).

Honesty system, rules are preferably paraphrase the question instead of exact quoting, try to do it from memory, and don't look up the answer from internet or book. I'll start with two. #1 we'll jump! I can't swim! Ha! are you crazy? the fall will probably kill you! #2 (difficult) I quit. (looks at ...

Re: The World Cup 2018 general pub chat thread.

The game has become utterly boring since the last two times I watched it - 1978 Argentina - Netherlands and 1990 when Roger Milla played.

Re: LandReg searches, e-mail alerts when occurs@ chosen property [free]

I registered my house a year ago when I bought it. I've had one red flag notification since then emailed to me - seems to me it was related to my solicitor paying the stamp duty on my behalf.
