Posted in: Does sleeping in separate beds make for a happy marriage or relationship? See in context

How about separate continents?

Ha.Separate mattresses or futons are good Everyone sleeps in a different manner,active or somnolent.

Separate rooms can be exciting,with a surreptitious swing across verandahs in the wee hours.

Posted in: French city rekindles burkini row with pool rule change See in context

This is very interesting,since,in most French piscines,men are required to wear trunks rather than shorts.

I managed to trick my father-in-law into sporting banana hammocks at a pool in the UK,whilst we bought said same grapeslingers,and joined him.

Posted in: French carmaker Renault to sell Russian operations to Moscow See in context

@Eastman Renault is dead brand anyway.

Sales in Japan are dead low now.

I've seen more and more even down here in the Ryukyu Islands, especially Kangoos.Very popular,and must be reasonably priced with good dealer support.

My son's new bike is even a Renault.

My Grandfather had a Moskevitch.

You had to tap the speedometer like a barometer.I asked,"How fast are we going?";"Between 50 and 120!".

The windscreen wipers flew off at any opportunity.

He reversed right through our garage, didn't notice.T72 grade steel.

Another open and shut case.

On the island where I live,the number of mentally challenged residents due to inbreeding and alcoholism is astounding.

Facilities for them are the biggest business.Worrying thing is,unless you report your relative as in need of help, they're out and about,driving and causing mayhem.

How's this relevant to Japan? What's on TV here doesn't make any difference, it just turns on with the lights when people get home.
