I thought this had already been agreed:

Millions of Britons will have to pay €7 (£6.29) every three years for visa-free travel to the EU from 2021.

The post-Brexit move was confirmed by the European Commission in response to a question to its President Jean Claude-Juncker.

The Brexit is screwing things up even more: looks like Brits will be isolated. Even for a visit to mainland Europe a Schengen-Visa for 52 GBP might be needed. Does that include a Northern Irish crossing the border to Eire?

Britons may need £52 visa to visit mainland Europe after Brexit

I can understand that more and more MPs leave their parties over all this nonsense, be it from Labour or the Torys.

It doesn't matter, whether those are directly Brexit-related. Undeniable fact is, that the cooling of world economy due to Trump's trade wars etc. adds to the problems of the Brexit, we European expats already suffer from. The exchange rate of the EUR to THB is down to 35.3, the GBP is down to 40.6 THB. No reason to rejoice the Brexit wouldn't be a problem, it definitely is part of the problems, even if it weren't a major problem.

There are many saying, the Brexit leaves both the EU and UK better off , if cutting the ties wouldn't cause new problems or bring old ones back like conflicts about the border between the UK and Ireland.

Energy & Environment / No drought this year, says irrigation dept
« Last post by Johnnie F. on February 20, 2019, 07:46:50 AM »
Let's hope they're right!

"THE ROYAL Irrigation Department (RID) announced yesterday that Thailand will not suffer from drought this year as there will be enough water for use until early 2020.

Deputy director-general Thaweesak Thanadachopol said an official survey in irrigation zones had learned that there will be sufficient water supply for consumption and farming.

Thailand will not experience a repeat of recent drought disasters because the RID and related agencies had undertaken a detailed study of water usage over the past two years and are planning drought-tackling measures to cope with any problems that arise, he added. (Full article: The Nation)

Two days ago they predicted extreme heat:

"PEOPLE MUST brace for extreme heat in the days to come, as an extraordinarily hot and arid summer has been forecast for Thailand from Thursday, while seven provinces in the North and the West are expected to experience extreme heat at 40-44 degrees Celsius.

The entire planet will see warmer-than-usual climate this year, the world’s leading climate scientists have warned. They said if the global temperature kept rising, there was a 50 per cent chance that the global average temperature in 2019 will break the previous year’s record and become the second hottest year ever in history.

Due to the forecast for scorching heat in Thailand this summer, the Disease Control Department’s Occupational and Environmental Diseases Bureau director, Dr Chantana Padungtod, has urged people to be more cautious about exposure to the heat for too long and to keep hydrated so as to avoid a heat stroke. (Full article: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30364285).

Let's hope, there will be enough water to take cooling showers and enough electrical power to operate all the air conditioners people will want to run. Like the RID is planning for water, people should be planning how to cool, what to do about these drops in voltage, that will render air conditioners useless.

For that super full moon announced a small cloud won't do much. It's got to be a huge cloud. Is there any? ;)

The photo gallery still does not work. I might have a look at that later... :spin

I decided to not mind any further the failure of our Coppermine photo gallery connecting to the database that got corrupted in these server problems, as the "GALLERY" function of this board seems to be working fine. It was just the AEVA MEDIA mod that years ago did not have such "exciting" functions. So for now I rather look into that gallery already integrated into the forum software. Please let me test it for a while and find out in what way it is best used and what it is best used for!
