"A Nabob, two bob. three bob, half a crown", He's a Hindoo Man

Re: Dogs

We have two beautiful German Shepherds Tara a fabulous high Brown 41/2 year old bitch and her son Tygrysek, just 21 months old and nearly twice the size of his momma.

Wonderful fun and excellent companions.  We love them.

Re: How can I watch the 2016 Olympics in English while I am in Poland

OK, so I've cracked it. However, I'm still subject to the onanistic vagaries of the BBC's pathetic scheduling.  I was watching the Women's Cycling Road Trial and it was cut short with about three minutes left.  The announcer said "over to BBC 1" where we were told NOT AVAILABLE.&...

Jon, in the interim it occurred to me that maybe FoxyProxy might be able to help.

And they think they can, they've requested more info from me vis a vis my equipment and settings so with a fair wind I should be getting round the issue tomorrow morning.

I'll let you all know with my progress then.

[quote="operaman"] Popping "watching bbc in Poland" into Google produced these links and others. Looks like a VPN proxy is what you need for iPlayer and maybe a cable package for live TV. Lots of hints for things to try in the polish forums link. http://watch-bbc-iplayer-abroad.consumerdea...

A bit off the wall, but can you pick up The Olympics on BBC radio?  This may work for some events.

Had turned it up fairly loud, then played a few remastered Hendrix tracks without turning the amp down and nearly broke my ears. CDs were mastered very quietly back then! [/q...
