  1. France has one of the higher divorce rates in the world, 55% Why worry about something that has not happened yet? If you want to marry her then pop the question, if she says yes then concentrate on having a good life with her.
  2. Hmmm, I guess we-re all old farts who have a dislike of karaoke. No suggestions or answers to my question. :unsure:
  3. I assume that is a question. I think that it would be a struggle in the Phils as well as in the UK. Add in the fact that your pension would be frozen, no annual increases, if you lived in the Phils will make it even worse in the future. Here in Colombia, I could comfortably live on just my UK old age pension. The Uk has an agreement with the Phills in that you do get the increases over here how long that will last is anybodies guess :bash: Oooops, I didn-t know that.

  5. I am certainly not a fan either but I am trying not to be Ebeneezer Scrooge this year as I now have a family, I can assure you that although it has an output of 1200 watts it will be played at a lkevel that MY poor old ears can tolerate comfortably.
  6. That's the system Jake. Nope, I don't want to use my existing music, I want pop songs etc without the lyrics but with a subtitled video so that the "singer" can read and sing the words to the backing music. I can go online and hook up to millions of tracks on youtube karaoke channel but due to the spotty net connection (just like the Phils) it may prove to be a nuisance. I was hoping to use a hard drive to feed the hard disk in my new equipment.
  7. What better place to ask about karaoke/videoke than a Phils forum? I have just bought a new home cinema/surround sound system (LG LH725) and one of the addidtional features is the ability to use it for karaoke. The system is "smart" but our internet connection here is a bit dodgy at times so I want to be able to put something onto a hard drive and use that rather than rely on an internet connection that can freeze or drop out at busy times. Having something sent by post/mail is not an option so a download that is not too heavy seems like the way to go. Any suggestions for this complete
  8. The countryside here would be a dream for you. Very cheap cost of living too.
  9. I'm with you every inch of the way Jack. This is the view from every room in the (L shaped) house apart from the lounge which we only use at night. .
  10. Ten years ago it was over 100 to the pound http://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=GBP&to=PHP&view=10Y
  11. Jack, I have the same thing here. New lady has a good well paid job for the local energy co, recent stats show that she serves almost double the number of clients as the next busiest person in the company. Her hours are 7.30 to 5.30 five days a week but she usually gets to the office around 6 .45 and sometimes doesn't leave till 8 or 9 at night. Add to that the frequent Saturday work and it's all too much. About 10 weeks ago I suggested that she review her pension age, amount etc as she was adamant that she would retire at 56 with full salary for the rest of her life. Best thing I could ha
  12. As many of the board members are of the more "life experienced" type I thought this might be of use. About 5 years ago I went on a 5 day fast to try to clean up my body a little, it involved a week of raw food and then 5 days of herbs, Bentonite clay and organic apple juice plus LOTS of water. On the fourth day I heard a “plop” as I peed but paid no real attention, later that day I heard more “plops” and there on the side of the toilet bowl was a lentil sized/coloured stone, I collected a dozen of these over the next day or so. I thought they were kidney stones but on checking up info o
  13. Yeah, stuff your body with chemicals so that you can carry on abusing it. Seriously, a change in your eating and drinking habits is called for, no alcohol on an empty stomach is a vital rule to follow if you suffer from gastric problems, don't go to bed on a full stomach either. A nice stroll after a meal is an excellent aid to digestion. Those little blue pills will also give gastric problems.
  14. I have a new desktop with windows 8.1 and didn't like it so I installed (free) Classic shell which improves it a LOT. When I built the desktop I installed an SSD to hold the operating system ....... worth every penny of the $84 I spent. It boots to full desktop in less than 30 seconds. I'll wait a while before trying 10, my laptop runs on 7 which to my mind is the best windows OS for a long time.
