Its a two year project and now into 11th month.  They are progressing very well

I pass them every day, there are several teams and they certainly are working.  They start at 07:30 and work till 16:30.  I feel sorry for them having to work in this heat!!!  The last couple of days has seen a temporary tarmac surface to the road from Tamara to Calle Adelpha.  That will keep the dust down.

Ditto, shame the builders are not as diligent. As it may have been finished by now.

t was 1964 and Paddy was sitting in his local pub in Kerry when a fine looking Italian woman walks in. He offered her a drink and over the course of the night he charmed her with funny Irish stories and songs. She’d never had a night like it before and decided to invite him back to her room.

They had a passionate affair all that summer.
One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant.
Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he gave her a large sum of money and told her to go back to Italy to secretly have the child.

He said that if she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write 'Spaghetti' on the back. He would then arrange for the child support payments to begin.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. 'Honey!,' she said, 'you received a very strange post card today.' 'Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later,' he said.

The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written:
Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.

One with meatballs, two without.

Send extra sauce.

Two Irishmen were waiting at the bus stop when a truck went past loaded up with rolls of turf.

Jimmy said, “I’m gonna do dat when I win da lottery.”

“What's dat den?” asks Mikey.

“Send me lawn away to be mowed."

The man is in hospital wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth calls "nurse nurse are my testicles black". The nurse raises his gown and holds his todger in one hand and his testicles in the other she has a good look and says there is nothing wrong with them sir. The man pulls off his oxygen mask , smiles at her and says very slowly, thank you for that it was lovely but please listen very carefully.

Are my test results back ?

I don't think it will ever happen!  If we leave on October 31 with a no deal (please please  god).

The EU will call a transition period so we can continue as before. The withdrawal agreement will be
re-opened and details thrashed out for future trading agreement.

The problem with SWALLOWS is most will be back in Tenerife for the winter BEFORE 31/10/2019, so does anyone know what happens if you are already in Tenerife prior to this date and have booked return tickets counting 183 days? Do you have to alter your flight home? Insurance implications if you’ve taken out insurance for 183 days and flying home would negate the policy?
