Merry Solstice (a few days late) from Kincraig to all my TH friends, whatever you celebrate, how, when or why. As Nick said (here's us agreeing again, Nick), the days will soon get longer. :smile:

Apparently the shops are all closed today.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Our local shop, run by a Pakistani Muslim family, isn't - they make a bundle on Xmas day selling booze and those essential but forgotten little items.

We have an extremely multicultural neighbourhood so I'm sure there will be shops open today!

Happy Summer Solstice. Just back home after having celebrated with friends (dinner and bonfire) at Alpe dei Fiori (Flowers' Alps - near Lugano).

Yes Kbell, if you speak Italian and/or you live in this country or in Ticino I suggest you visit on Fb "Movimento Umanista di Lingua Italiana".
We are just a few and new friends are waaarrrmlyyy welcome.
