    "Unlikely there will be a post next Sunday as I am in Bintan, Indonesia." Croc

    Ahem, it is unlikely that I will ever get a chance to visit Bintan, Indonesia (sob). Mike is probably having to "suffer" through the holidays at the Bintan Lagoon Resort! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaA7rASkkBE with the weather vacillating between a low of 79F and highs of about 89F (sob).

    Its a lot more complex than you think Bob. Its a 10 day round the world. So its...


    1) Tokyo - Aman Tokyo
    https://www.aman.com/resorts/aman-tokyo

    2) Singapore - Fullerton Bay Hotel
    https://www.fullertonhotels.com/full...rs/room-offers

    3) Bintan - The Sanchaya (just the Saturday and Sunday)
    https://www.thesanchaya.com/

    4) London - the usual apartment

    Then back home.

    So I have to plan for suit and tie and cold weather plus warm tropical weather, all while only taking a carry on rollaboard and briefcase.

    I checked with the Bintan and they assured me they have excellent internet access, so you'll be fine making your usual post next Sunday. Glad I could clear that up!

    surely more to this than meets the eye?
    I talked at length to this seller before buying my Birkin. This is the person who bought it from that seller, seemed willing to negotiate if someone was serious and acted quickly. The proportions of the WCM cars are just odd to me, otherwise I would have bought it.

    Sadly no...you forgot a small but critical factor. The world is round. There is a 12 hour time difference. And so at 7am on a Sunday morning (EST) for this in the US Eastern states, it will be 7pm at the Sanchaya where yours truly will be ensconced on the terrace, sun going down, overlooking the mostly turquoise South China Sea, in a wicker chair, admiring some piece of crumpet emerging from the pool, on his fourth gin and tonic, maybe some nuts at hand, a drinks wallah at my side, while i clearly think “@&$k it” at the mere thought of pulling my computer out to log on and list out all those ads.

    And so I will turn to the drinks wallah and say, “Can I please get another G&T, nice and dry, with extra lemon?” with a big smile on my face.

    I know myself too well!

    Don't tell me you're one of those round earthers? That explains a lot...

    Everyone knows that time is a human construct. Daylight Savings does NOT save any daylight. So, show of hands, who is OK with Croc doing the list a 7:00 PM EST, which would be 7:00 AM where he will be, by his calculations. Of course, if we allow for him drinking a bathtub of gin the night before, we could let him sleep in till 9:00 his time.

    Are gin baths good for your complexion?
