Oh Yes :lol: But pleased to be part of a Green fringe - now to get the majority to realise what's happening around us and to play their part in minimising the damage, as well a seizing the opportunities for green businesses.

How about using Duolingo.com to learn a new language ?
They have recently introduced a sort of league table for the users, such that a competitive element is brought into the picture.

Some users of this forum, might enjoy learning a european language, now that they have some free-time available. :wink:

Thanks to people here who mentioned Duolingo, here, some time ago. My french-speaking abilities had slid away since my year house-sitting in Picardie.
Things are rapidly improving.

+1 for Duolingo. Excellent way of tuning up your language and pronunciation skills, and its free! Great for keeping the noddle tuned up too...

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. CTC gone but not forgotten!

Not sure if my brain is starting to go, went into a ladies toilet by mistake today, back home I put water on the stove to cook lentil soup*, put the vegetables in, then realised I should have put the lentils in first :?
Think I shall reread this thread again

*should I downgrade to tinned soup to save thinking?
