    England football team get a very warm welcome.

    It's nice when countries we've helped, give a warm reception with lots of gratitude.

    No more skuddies in the pan.

    For many, this will be a good thing, for some, the days of proudly 'leaving their mark' may be doomed.

    If Teflon is super-slippery, how come it sticks to saucepans?

    I don't think a proper Vegan would go to a place that sells hundreds tons of meat every year

    Aha, I agree with Ryanair above my new Spanish country...

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50497629

    Imagine if every customer did that, where will they all go ?

    And an extra 1.5 tons to fly and extra fuel.

    I think it's bizzare, the rules are pretty clear. But then I use Ryanair a lot, I find the occasional passenger's struggle to understand the pricing quite amusing.

    It's only changed in the last year or so.

    Before you could take two bags. A small bag/case about the size of those small pull along suitcases and a smaller bag, like a handbag or manbag for putting your phone, passport, tablet, packed lunch in.

    The rules changed and now you can only take the handbag... which isn't allowed to be much bigger than an A4 sheet of paper and about 200mm deep. You can only take a larger bag if you take out priority boarding.

    It catches out a lot of people who don't fly very often and assume the rules stay the same.
