    Kids eating a meal with others with not only their phone out, but with headphones plugged in.

    We've always had no phones/tablets while eating or in a car. Enjoy chatting with your family, play I spy or Pictionary games etc if the kid is there.

    For the last while, while (double while) eating outside, kids not only have their phone or tablet out, they also have their earphones in, while out eating with their family. Sitting at a dining table with their family glued to their phone with headphones in.

    *shakes head*

    Daily moan, over and out.

    The fruit game is a good one to keep them entertained on a long drive.

    You each take a turn in naming a fruit and have to drop out if you can't name a new one. The winner is the last person who can name a new fruit.

    This creates all sorts of discussions like, are tomatoes a fruit or veg? Are pumpkins a fruit or veg? (both fruit). And did you know that nuts are fruits?

    And a word to the wise... if you're playing in the West with non Thai kids, keep a few Thai exotics like longon and lamyai up your sleeve for the end, and you'll win every time.

    As a parent, my wife and I absolutely had a mandate. There are to be no phones or computers in the rooms and none while eating bfast, lunch or dinner. As a parent you have that control.

    Sadly nowadays all I see is parents who give their children those devices as a babysitter rather than being a parent.

    The pork chop I just cooked and ate was awful but it still wouldn't have been improved by a game of I spy.

    This really shouldn't be a moan but...

    My eldest has moved into halls of residence at university with a new computer, kitchen and bedroom stuff.
    No expense spared on my part.
    I've had to push him every step of the way.
    He met a toxic lead weight of a girl over a year ago and his A grades plummeted to the point where we though he wouldn't get in.
    Fortunately he scrapped through with the absolute minimum of effort.

    He's just posted a pic of himself and his dead weight of a waster girlfriend in his room.

    I despair sometimes...
    Shalom

    Charging for condiments. Charging 2 quid for condiments.

    Cheeky.

    It seems to be the case in the UK now that you just walk outside and a hundred quid is gone.

    There's probably charges for parking in the restaurant carpark too.
    I recall in mainland Europe , they charged for katchup and condiments 20 years ago. i assumed the UK was the same

    ^Work or income from assets taxed. Doesn’t sound as if they would be taxing pension or savings. We should keep an eye on this one.

    I don't know what you and fucknuts are on about. But i remember it from decades ago and i watched a travel video recently in Paris or something and the vlogger was talking about how he was charged for condiments at a restaurant. But instead of finding that video , i could just tell y'all to get bent instead

    In Portugal, you also need to be aware that bread, olives, butter, and other condiments or appetizers that are automatically brought out to your table are NOT free. You will be charged for whatever/how many you use/eat.
    The charge is not necessarily outrageous, but just something to be aware of

    This morning at 0914 NZST a 6.4 quake 70 km west of Christchurch. It didn't do much but roll for about 10-15 seconds. So, not a moan, I guess.

    Carry on.
