We had a week in Valetta in August. So much quieter then normal, especially Upper Barrakka Gardens. Was easy to find a seat any time of day. Was still lovely to be there. I've not been on for quite a a while - does DJB still contribute on here. Was always good for a chat with his Geordie expressions.
Well spotted Ray. I can easily see it
fire works at grand harbour tonight
The Fountain looks as though it could do with a really good clean looking dirty at the moment
Hi all, sorry to say that waves_malta on line radio request station is now o from 11.00 am to 13.00 BST, that is 12.00 to 14.00 CET. The reason is that the VJ who did 10.00 to 12.00 CET, sadly passed away. The isolation station was his idea but is still transmitting as above.
When the sun is on the wall in the background it looks there is a picture built into the blocks/stones. I would guess that is just the worn crumbling surfaces of the blocks, but it does look like an abstract design.
Blowing a gale today 20/4
Good Morning Avril, you ok Dear ?
Hi all you missing tbis Island waves_malta is a request radio station on line from Malta. Its the isolation station. 10.00 - 12.00 CET.
Cheers Kevin, we will all party when this virus is over, and then go on holiday !
Hi Derek05, That's bad news, your plans have been hit harder than ours, I hope you've managed a refund. I now have to contact the hotel near Glasgow airport where we'd booked to stay and park the car before the flight and stay another night when we return, I don't mind if it's a voucher from them as we use them everytime we fly from Glasgow although it will be for 3 rooms as our daughters were going with us. The holiday company have said they will refund if they have cancelled the holiday, which they have, although I'm sure that a refund will be the last option, we will see. Maybe it will have to be a road trip this year when we come out of lockdown. Thanks for the birthday wishes, I've passed it on.
Hi Kevin, rough about your holiday cancellation, we know the feeling, we were due to go to Lake Como in Italy TODAY, and we were off to France the 3rd week in May, for 5 weeks, but not anymore!! Something to look forward to in the future. Not sure how you will go on getting a rebate, most holiday Companies really don't like giving out rebates, they will probably try to persuade you to take a holiday voucher, so you choose a different venue (when safe), or wait until Malta is ok again. The problem with all this is, when destinations are safe again, the prices will probably increase sharply, to enable the travel companies to get back some of their lost revenue. Hope you go on ok, and a Very Happy 70th to your good lady !
Hi Avril, I remember the secretaries doing something like that to the new girl in the office, I thought it was a bit harsh but she's now a high flyer in the local council so I guess it did her no harm. Speed typing was never an issue in my job so I didn't progress past 2 fingers on each hand. It's just been confirmed that our Malta holiday in May for my wifes 70th has been cancelled but as we can't leave the house for another 8 weeks we wouldn't have been able to go so it's going to be a case of re-arrange or try to get a refund. Stay safe.
Hi Kevin, when I learned to type, the keys were either covered up or the letters removered, we had to touch type and remember which key was which.
Hi Derek05, thanks, yes it's certainly been a profession that's evolved, I’ve seen so many changes since the mid sixties, as colour TVs became slimmer in the seventies and eighties we amused ourselves with thoughts that soon we’d be able to hang them on a wall, as computers arrived we thought that one day we’d be talking to them, giving them names, asking questions and commanding them to do menial tasks, the popular TV series ’The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ had their agents communicating through video wrist watches. I guess it’s all happened just as we imagined. I wonder what the next 50 years will bring. Stay safe everyone.
Hi Kevin,sounds like you have had a great working life, now enjoy retirement when all this virus stuff has gone away !
