Re: The Old Guys

Outnumbered is ok, but it gets samey. The Memsahib is a fan of it.

My guess would have been Sabadell, since it is Banco Sabadell, but I see Mactep is ahead of me.

Re: A Trivia Question

I think we ought to be able to take Luxembourg off the list, in all the arsing about British armies have done in the cockpit of Europe someone must have wandered through it. There have also been incursions into Guatemala in the bickering over Belize, though not an invasion per se.

Re: UK Keyboards

Hmm, I have a keyboard case for my iPad and it has the € symbol but on the "2" key. I can't think what a UK apple keyboard looks like, other than a standard qwerty layout.
