I think many of us can identify with what you are saying about Sweden, our investment in BEM being the example. The Swedish bureaucracy is really quite sickening as far as we are concerned, but the Swedes obviously hold an alternative view, or things would be different. It is possibly just something they have grown up with and something they therefore accept as the norm. Some may even suggest it is merely being thorough. Lol.
We don't quite know where the sp will go in the short term, so it's probably wise of you to keep your Italy house sale money safe for the time being, see how it goes. Not to mention it shouldn't be long before the next news.
As for being a bit slippery though, I don't agree with that at all. it's not necessary, in my view anyway, but hey, perhaps with such serpent-like attributes you could have been a market maker eh? You should maybe come out of retirement and give it a crack:
Scene: Old custard heels (you) is on line one with a special deal for Mr Gullible. Custard cleverly adopting a foreign accent so he can be ultra slippery and avoid being traced to his rented industrial unit in Doncaster:
"Zees stock is going to boom, so you 'ave to be een queeek!"
Very interesting indeed. I say just built a bridge so the trucks can use the road and everything else go under. Otherwise pausing operations for the few weeks a year sounds like a good option. Night all and thanks for the interesting comments today
We love the North York Moors. Great area to walk in. It's the largest expanse of heather moorland in Europe! If you saw Flying Scotsman at Grosmont it would have been the middle of March last year. We travelled behind her from Grosmont to Pickering. She made mincemeat of the difficult 1:49 gradient up the Esk Valley. We like to stay at the New Inn at Cropton which is so relaxing and has it's own brewery at the bottom of the car park - Great Yorkshire Brewery. My favourite beer is aptly named Blackout....
Sounds like nice day out in the Dales. I go out on Wednesdays with a geriatric hikers group. There are guys in the group who are well into their 80s and as I'm only a wee boy of 73 they refer to me as the youngster. The guy that organises it has been hiking in the dales since he was a boy and knows every inch of it.
One day last summer we walked to Grosmont, one of the stations in the dales on the Middlesbrough to Whitby line to see the Flying Scotsman. It's a beautiful machine and it stopped for a while so that everyone could have a good look at it.
Uncle Eric what's a hooker doing at the docks, I thought they played on a rugby pitch.
I've got a story for you. Years ago when I was involved in the motor trade I used to meet up with my friends and associates late evening a slightly sleazy bar in Middlesbrough. The owner had agreed that the local 'working girls' could come in for bevy when they finished work as long as they didn't try to do any business.
They were nice girls and we used to have a blether and a good laugh with them. There was one girl called Ann, a bit younger than the others and very beautiful. One night she came in looking absolutely shattered. I said Ann you look really tired, let me get you a bevy. She said thanks Ed, I'm worn out, I've been off me feet all evening. True story.
I'm in. I now have more shares than I had when I sold the lot 13 months ago. Originally planned to exit ( with a healthy profit ) when I retired, which is now 25 months ago. Best to be a bit slippery, Eric. Keeps folk guessing. Sold my place in Italy a couple of weeks ago. Everything tells me it would be foolhardy to use some of the proceeds here just yet. I rely on a devilish combination of research and instinct, which is by no means infallible. I don't like being beat by a share with such sound fundamentals. BEM owes me money I should have already collected. I am so ****ed off with Sweden, a country which, for so long has been peaceful and wealthy, it continues, wrongly, to believe that peace and wealth are a given and so behaves in such a high and mighty fashion. Sweden needs to acknowledge the economic imperatives of supporting it's precious culture.
