Is it just me or has EOS just recently  become a  very very very  boring place to be  ?????  Perhaps it is because of the loss of many vibrant ,enthusiastic and passionate posters who don't seem to post anymore  ,Why ?????? 

Well the truth is  many old favourites have completely disappeared  Why ?

Perhaps many have left the forum because they were not heard or even worse belittled in their attempts at justice , honesty  and understanding .Many posters were  trying soooo hard to change things  and give a fair and  balanced  opinion  but perhaps  they became scunnered (an old  Scots word which means extremely dis enfranchised  or  to put it another way p***ed  o*f in the extreme )

For whatever  reason be it an unlike or  indifference to the views of those who can not smell the roses or a  protection of the equilibrium  .Who knows!!

 I have no idea but for some reason  the forum has become  a tedious boring exchange  . So much so that I am loathed to log on at ,all . Come on please guys  !!!!!! surely we can do much better than a 2010  Internet version of El Dora do !!!!  Yawn Yawn !!!!!!!    Scunnered !!!! JA

I agree. I want to start posting but I can't when there's nothing to post about.

Julie Anne, to be honest every year towards the end of the year the site starts to get a little quieter around November time.

It's all part of the cycle.

If you want to liven things up a little then start something fun!

Some constructive input would probably be more welcome than just posting this.

Justin

there's always people needing help or advice and those active need to be on hand to help and offer assistance and advice.

Some threads don't always get a reply and that's a pity becuase I know there is always someone here who knows the answer or can point someone in the right direction.

We need more sharing of knowledge, experience and knowhow.

A site like this can be the first port of call for any query on life/living in Spain.

Hi Julie Anne,

Why not start a vibrant & interesting thread of your own? Or are you just too boring?...

 I have been a member of EOS practically since it's inception.

I agree the site has "slowed down" somewhat in the last few months

There are many members who were regulars on here that don't visit anymore.

This is a shame because there were a variety of individuals with professional experience or just ordinary people with experience of living in Spain

They gave good sound advice and helpful tips and guidance.

So, with those people "missing" now, it's up to the new members to make the site interesting and lively again!

You cannot join a forum just to read what's going on without having any input.

A forum is only what the members make it, so get typing!

Defence Attorney:

Will you please state your age?

Little Old Lady:

I am 94 years old.

Defence Attorney:

Will you tell us, in your own words, what happened the night of April 1st?

Little Old Lady:

There I was, sitting there in my swing on my front porch on a warm spring evening, when a young man comes creeping up on the porch and sat down beside me.

Defence Attorney:

Did you know him?

Little Old Lady:

No, but he sure was friendly.

Defence Attorney:
What happened after he sat down?

Little Old Lady:

He started to rub my thigh.

Defence Attorney:

Did you stop him?

Little Old Lady:

No, I didn't stop him.

Defence Attorney:

Why not?

Little Old Lady:

It felt good. Nobody had done that since my Albert died some 30 years ago.

Defence Attorney:

What happened next?

Little Old Lady:

He began to rub my breasts.

Defence Attorney:

Did you stop him then?

Little Old Lady:

No, I did not stop him.

Defence Attorney:

Why not?

Little Old Lady:

His rubbing made me feel all alive and excited. I haven't felt that good in years!


Defence Attorney:

What happened next?

Little Old Lady:

Well, by then, I was feeling so 'spicy' that I just laid down and told him
'Take me, young man. Take me now!'

Defence Attorney:

Did he take you?

Little Old Lady:

Hell, no! He just yelled, ' April Fool!' And that's when I shot him, the little bastard

How´s this for livening things up a little?

ANOTHER BLONDE JOKE

A beautiful blonde teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided
to hire herself out as a 'handy-woman' and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do
neighbourhood.

She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs
for her to do.

'Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,' he said, 'How much will you charge
me?'

Delighted, the girl quickly responded, 'How about $50?'

The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and everything she would need was in
the garage. The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, 'Does she realise
that our porch goes ALL the way around the house? That's a bit cynical, isn't it?'

The man replied, 'You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes
we've been getting by e-mail lately.'

Later that day, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

'You're finished already?' the startled husband asked.

'Yes', the blonde replied, 'and I even had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.'

Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to her along with a
$10 tip.

'And by the way,' the blonde added, 'it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus.

The Banana Test

There is a very, very tall coconut tree and there are 4 animals,

A Lion , A Chimp , Giraffe ,
.....AND... 

A Squirrel 



They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree. 


Who do you guess will win? 


Your answer will reflect your personality. 


So think carefully . . .. 
Try and answer within 30 seconds.
 Got your answer?


Now scroll down to see the analysis.

If your answer is:

Lion = you're dull. 
Chimpanzee = you're dense. 
Giraffe = you're a complete moron. 
Squirrel = you're hopeless.



A COCONUT TREE DOESN'T HAVE BANANAS. 




Obviously you're stressed and overworked. 
You should take some time off and relax

1) Is it just me or are all the pictures in Irene & Alan's posts just blank boxes?

2) If everyone else sees just blank boxes why didn't you say? 

I would guess you're copying & pasting from emails which causes the blank boxes.

I love this one.

There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms.

Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 am.

The next day at 8:45 am there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door.

The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee.

He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.

The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up.

At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's. She has aroll of plush Red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.

The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.

The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches Lena .

'I'm sorry,' he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, 'but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday...'

'Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles.
