The Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa, is reported to be currently recharging his batteries on a beach in the Algarve, accompanied by a lady whose name I do not recognise.

Apart from the woman's name, there's little to see unless you are interested in the PM's beachwear.

But guess what they ate for lunch.  CdM reports them as sardine-munchers.

WARNING!

Some of the language that has been used recently towards members and moderators is totally unacceptable and has resulted in at least one temporary ban. Regular posters are very well aware of the forum rules so I shouldn't need to have to keep reminding of them. Everyone is entitled to voice their opinion here but it must be done respectfully, there can be no exceptions.

A challenge, let's try and get through today without the need for any moderation. TY

I know that Scotland is very definitely not the Algarve, but this short clip is pertinent.

Dogs get ticks.  We check Gonçalo after his every walk in the countryside to make sure he is free from ticks.

In most instances, ticks on the Algarve do not transmit Lyme Disease.

However, I have heard in my time here of two people dying from Lyme Disease, because they did not recognise it and they did not get it treated.  Staff at Portimão hospital were distraught, because if caught early on, Lyme Disease responds well to antibiotics.

The warning siren that we have here is walking in areas inhabited by deer.  It appears deer can be reservoirs for Lyme Disease.

Perhaps the same occurs in Scotland?

As another weekend approaches can I ask everyone to please follow the forum rules. The hard pressed moderators do an excellent job in keeping things moving so do consider them next time you feel you need to have a go at someone. 

Let's try and set a new record this weekend by drastically cutting the number of moderated posts. As an incentive, the prize for the member whose has the most posts moderated/deleted over Saturday and Sunday will be a two day ban.

Happy posting!
