Passion? Grudge Match, do you mean,Pete?

Anne, your wedding and 'snip ' (what that?) sounds gorgeous & to remember, but yes, pity about the no-sleep and noise! Also pity you weren't 'invited in'. But I'm glad you had a good time withal.

Linda 'snip' is circumcision (sp?)done when a boy is between 9 and 13 (I think).

Here's some info (male palinites cross your legs). ;(

Unbelievable end to the Croatia V Turkey match earlier. It was 0-0 and went into extra time. It remained 0-0 till the last minute of extra time when Croatia scored. Game over ? No Turkey scored within less than a minute with literally the last kick of the ball taking the match to a penalty shoot-out which Turkey won.

Yay!! I was jumping round the kitchen!

I hate penalty shoot-outs though; I was watching through my fingers!

I imagined the scenes in Turkey - fireworks, horns blaring and general mayhem!

It would be GREAT if they beat Germany in the semi-final on two levels. Of course they would then be in the final which seemed impossible at the beginning, but also it would be a blow against Germans who have not exactly been nice to the many Turks living there. Though really I prefer to keep politics out of footie, well out of sport altogether.

AFERIN, TURKIYE!!!

I'm about to settle down to watch the Holland v Russia game and from what I've seen of these two teams it should be a cracker.

Gee, if it goes like this, the final will be Russia vs Turkey. Eugh. This is European championship, for Christ's sake !...

Anne, oops, took eye off the ball for tha tone (Snip). Should have been obvious! Thanks, though

(I'll check out your clip sometime, I expect there's a ritual to it all)

Husband delayed by about 1 hour getting home late after the Turkey match. Public transport (and cars) all held up by the demonstration. Police there watching it quite benignly.

Wish them well, but pleased we shall be in Battle for the final. Don't think there's a Turkish community there...
