You're not really concerned about this, are you?

Looks like the new wife has been sorting you out

If you do get to Gambia you need to set up a LHS so if I go on holidays there I can get spares when I crash

I dont think I will ever fly BA as they dont allow surf boards on thier planes and Gambia sometimes has some good waves for surfing when the wind blows onshore

The more pc companies become, the less money I spend with them. I inform them of the reason why too!

What's PC about an airline selling service (and airline miles) throughout the world - aka - oneworld?

Not sure what problem anyone would have with this but BA have been pushing their One World Alliance for a while, as have British Midland with their Star Alliance partners, which includes Lufthansa.

That just proves it's been a long term plot.

Ralf, Yeah. My wife and step-children have changed my life.

There are absolutely NO hobby stores, and everyone thinks thhis model airplane thing is just great. The country is perfect for flying. Very few large trees (an occasional baobab) and the palms are spaced out. And the red clay soil is good for runways. I'll have to think about it.

And the waves are great. Not like the Pacific, but are big enough for some long runs. I spend half my time at the beach. Ahhhhh . . . retired life is much more fun in West Africa! I watched a couple of Ozzies for about 5 hours just before I returned to the US.

NO problems, Brian. It;s just that a "One World" anything makes me uncomfortable with the inexperienced President we have now. He's doing his best to sell us out to Europe and China.

Why the concern if you're not living here? Must be that the "One World" thing is a knee jerk buzz word for some folks.

Inexperienced? I dare say that Bush II had plenty of that attribute, even maintained the cluelessness through 2 terms.

Selling us out?

By all means, support what you just claimed with some facts - if you can.

Given that the last President had "no experience" please detail the difference between the two, as I don't seem to recall your concern during his term.

Your own extreme bias (evidenced by this very thread) doesn't allow you to see anything clearly.
