Just off topic but how are you liking being back in rainy England Glynn & Susan,
you must be missing your life in Turkey all your trips although the weather has
been kind to us this summer the best in years but we are now back to the normal
rain, rain and more rain, sick of seeing it this last week. :)

AS you all know I spent a lot of cash in Soke hospital last year, and we made the decision to come back to UK, we left Turkey in July last year, and do not have any plans to return at least not this year.

We lost a fair amount in cash due to the exchange rate it was 2.9 last July, and even worse had we waited till this year.

Well we did almost 6 years and loved it, but it was time to come back.

I see the elections are on very soon I can't see there being a big change in the government there, how much is beer now? here it is so cheap and lots of different brews to go at.

At least we can say we did it,
