Re: Football World Cup.

I think that's the reason, David. But of course, it could be incidentally important in terms of momentum for the winning team. The English team arrived needing a morale boost after the national teams recent performances in International tournaments. A good performance against Belgium would see them ...

Re: Football World Cup.

The game against Panama ended 6-1. And England advance to the next round..however, the next game is against Belgium which is a horse of a different colour..
As it has been described a number of times this World Cup, Belgium is a team of superstars

Re: Football World Cup.

I'm watching on Telemundo and didn't catch what the commentators said, nor do I think my Spanish is good enough to identify what they said, but wasn't that penalty situation actually an offside right before? As in, the play that made the situation where the penalty occurred, should've been an offsi...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

I stopped thinking of myself as a would-be 'advanced practitioner' or as a less 'advanced practitioner' about the same time as I stopped pretending to be a Tibetan.
Whats left?

The River Thames at high tide. The hills of Surrey in the rain.
Same as it ever was.

Re: ahimsa and pest control

:thumbsup: That was exactly the situation Aryjana. As I said there less than a month before the inspection. Starving them out was not an option given the timeframe. There was good reason to suspect that the local authority was out to close the place. Scotland in those days was a hotbed of Presbyteri...

Re: ahimsa and pest control

A true story. When CTR was abbot of Samye Ling he inherited a large colony of rats that came with the building. Most of the time the humans and rats coexisted, although they (the rats) often stole foodstuffs used in pujas. But around that time it became clear that the local authorities were taking a...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

I use a calendar I bought online because I like the pictures.
I stopped being a pretend Tibetan about the same time that I reverted to my birth name.
Its all just more stuff to clear away.

Re: Football World Cup.

As the parent of an aspiring footballer, we are all football mad in this house watching every match. While the Oranje are my team generally, with them out I am really happy to see Belgium firing on all cylinders. Hazard and Lukaku are in phenomenal form. Could this be the year they make the final? ...
