  1. . a rave from the past Longcross , Runnymede UK. green area of much rain ,trees and horses. also The Magna Carta in 1215 = “All Men are born Free of bondage” etc , (apart from taxes lol ) indeed still valid into today’s tech age, sadly nothing changes ,
  2. My internet has a problem lol , my ISP is BT , (Brit Telecom )
  3. don't post much these days I have regressed back into historic cars , and letting computer tech past me by in the fast lane , indeed going back to my roots inn my old age but logged in to say Happy Peaceful NEW YEAR in 2017 it's already arrived in the UK ,
  4. Just to add my tuppence worth , Now the day has arrived , thought I would share my thoughts that I sent in Email to a good long term Friend across the pond , looks like it will be a close result , which is bad news , same as our Brexit vote "Leave" won by a 1.85 % majority of folk that voted , it divided folk almost 50/50, and the row is still going on , we now have unrest on the streets and I figure violence will be next , it's taboo to ask a Brit how they voted , it carries a risk of getting a punch in the face , which is very unlike the normally placid Brits , this is going to last another 3-4 years , while the country has lost sight of making Britain Great again , fear the same may happen to America , meanwhile Putin is LHAO while watching from the wings , ww 3? doubt it , why bother when your opponents are staging a comedy on stage , Just my take on things , hopefully I will be proved wrong on that , indeed this world needs some stability at the moment , who will provide it is yet to be seen , but IMHO that red Bear is going to take some caging , Best Regards USA Roco.. (temp resident UK )
  5. · Women fighters will share rooms with male Royal Marines commandos · Head of the navy said that the move would boost 'team cohesion' Admiral Lord West, former head of the navy, said: 'Hot blooded men and women want to have sex so inevitably there will be the on odd incident. but when they are going off to do their Tarzan course, the last thing that will be on their mind will be sex. If they are going to be part of the Royal Marines, then sharing a room makes sense.' A Royal Navy spokesman said: 'We continue to consider the policy to determine whether women could be accommodated in the same rooms as men, which includes ways of segregating areas to maintain privacy. No decision has yet been made.' -------------------------------- Holly mackerel , makes me wish I was young enough to sign up again, being Tarzan fit back then I could have chewed my way through a partition wall in seconds , indeed me Tarzan I will call you woman Jane .
  6. Hi guys , I do still exist and look in occasionally and test , ( with the help of of medical science and my Brit FTTC , lol ( Brit humour ) but noticed I lost my “ news anchor title !, maybe because I haven’t posted any European news for years , so OK here goes , totally lost on your new presidential elections , over here we voted to leave the European Union , our prime mister resigned , our beloved Queen ( 90 ) said stay calm ,, we followed our true leader and did , now we have our seconded ever female Prime Minister ,all within 3 weeks heck I have no problem with that , lets be honest males can do the walk and talk , and nothing more IMHO got the feeling my American cousins will get a female president , well maybe then our special relationship will blossom again , even if it’s only talks about shoes and handbags,
  7. from ancient memory wasn't all American settlers from the UK, convicts or am I mixing it with Australia ? truly never took up my choice to vote in the uk , heck it pays off , some folk say posh gitI, suppose you voted for XXX I can say honestly I didn't,. politics trouble me zilch , ( never met one that wasn't' in it for his or her own gain , but world movements bother me , indeed Americas freedom , is to be admired , but why do folk need to carry a fire arm , you have ever faced invasion ,? moving on Obama love him or hate , has keep world peace , and that's fragile at best , hence my post on choose wisely , nothing more to be read into that, I only follow world news from a investment angle, the latest is America is heading for a down turn by 2017, so pull your money out now, and Britain voting to leave the brotherhood of Europe it will add to our woes , might just pull my money out and spend it in the local cat house
  8. Hi,Guys & Tommie, as you know as a refugee from WW2 I grew up with American kids from , even today I stand proudly behind USA flag, but beginning to worry about the choice of your next president , a quick poll of local UK folk they are saying " oh , that’s Homer Trumph , what do you expect they had a President that had no ability apart from being a movie star meanwhile back at home in UK , we are having a vote on on leaving the European Union,within 30 days , the usual for and against crap is being reeled out by leaders ? that have a financial interests , I shan’t be voting as after 55 years I am still an alien in the UK , ( long story) almost book length)_ But just posting to say Please guys vote wisely, this world needs a strong president/leader.

  11. Hi Granpa , With my English/ Queens English " what jolly posh yah * my slight French accent after all these years marks me out as odd in the UK especially when living in London , either way love regional accents ,
  12. Hi all from Roco UK Tis that silly season yet again , Time to weigh down the postman with Christmas cards and to spend a kings ransom for stamps on folk you never liked anyway, don’t get me started on food buying for a 2 day break , why do I always buy a large jar of picked onions ? , they never get eaten indeed the silly season , I wonder if Turkeys get excited about Christmas grouse over have a great Christmas , BTW I read somewhere you guys don't have Boxing Day (26 Dec ,) , It's tradition in the UK the day to box up unused food from Christmas Day to give to servants and the poor , Things change very slowly in Britain Roco
  13. I Thanks, I am just happy to still be around Testmy.Net , it's been some years now just checked it will be 10 years next Feb , !!! how time fliess and things change , The UK sport of gravy wrestling , has been overtaken by women's rugby , the game normally played by guys with odd shaped balls , heck we now have females also playing with odd shaped balls , and on my old Twickenham rugby ground , Sigh if I was only younger , would have made tackling head first more interesting ( it's to promote the ladies rugby club )
  14. Hi guys , it's been a long time Just posting ( who groaned at the back ? ) just got out of my usage limit of 40Gb a month , now feel like a sprinter coming off the starting blocks , Now on unlimited for $12 US a month cheaper , same ISP BT our original national phone/internet provider, by = , It worked maybe coz I now have Virgin Cable available , for me "non merci" Also not been around much , been doing a farewell tour of the UK , while I am still able , Noticed my rating is stuck at 127 , heck me and Muddy were neck and neck what seems like only yesterday , What can I say “ vote for me “ just don’t ask me about Tech stuff ,I only do the unique English sense of humour thing , although I am not English , just lived along side them for many years , it sort of rubs off I guess:-0 anyway have a great 2016 Best regards Roco
