  1. indeed. I read (and was glad about it) that the flood of donations for Notre Dame triggered donations for the rebuilding of the three baptist churches that had been burned in the South.
  2. you have a local spy, that's almost as good as living here. Migi has a rhododendron (in a big pot), I think the red is about the colour of yours. But it is later, so far it's only buds and we hope there are blooms among them.
  3. and some idiots on Twitter posted a video of people trying to clear the roads for the rescue and firemen teams and asked, "Are they crying Allahu akbar??" (I think it was "Allez, allez!") The world is getting dumber by the day. Trump suggested the French use "flying water tanks". The French released a note saying that using firefighting aircraft would have destroyed the building (they were discreet and didn't mention the Orange Abomination )
  4. yes, the huge distances probably are the problem. We have barely any lines above ground (only the huge overland ones), but then we are a rather tiny country in comparison. The rhododendrons are beautiful, bess the vibrant red goes well with the blue sky, too
  5. Watching Notre Dame burning last night was so sad.
  6. yay for the generator! it always seems to me that in a country with so many trees, having exposed power lines isn't the best of ideas …
  7. I think I have three iPods two are tiny and only good for music, one is bigger and sits on a speaker, that is my stereo. And my iPhone is also my iPod when it comes to audiobooks.
  8. GPS is actually really easy to use. I have it on my iPhone and haven't got lost ever again (which was my special power, so to speak ) You see a map, and an arrow points the way you should go (I use the option for walking)(of course ). You also can get the directions in a spoken or written version. That is actually the kind of app that can make real sense. There are a huge lot of apps out there nobody needs, though.
  9. yes, same here. It's rather sad.
  10. yes, all the stuff we have to deal with … Since I keep "inheriting" Migi's phones I have a rather new iPhone. And I have a lot of apps on there and some fun with it … But I have to be careful; I have been decreasing screen time lately
  11. oh okay, i was a bit confused
