Thank you SIL. I think everyone knows my obsession is facts, not opinions. I too value Anne's work, and it's thanks to you that I have a better understanding of Luz. I don't know if you go there now, but it seems to me that the Ocean Club has declined ever since Crossland et al sold it due to a lack if investment in infrastructure and in staff.

I've seen you post several opinions as facts

you are missing a lot by not using facebook....I can still use facebook and socialise with poeple in the real world. How do you keep in touch with family in australia...I use FB.....video phone calls ....photographs ..videos ......messaging to keep in touch with my family in australia and around teh world.....it really is quite marvelous...you are missing a lot.

I fail to see how posters can progress the case...particularly if they dont understand the evidence......as i regularly see....

You say you are here for Madeleine....i think you are wrong if you think you can be any help whatsoever...the best chance we have of finding out what hapenned to Maddie is from the two police forces involved..


You forgot Skype wonderful way in which to keep in touch with family/friends.

No, it isn't why we are all here.

I don't 'socialise' on-line.  That's why I have no Twitter, no Facebook, no Instagram accounts.  I do socialising with real people in real-life situations.

I am on here to find out more about the Madeleine case, start-end. 

Don't get me wrong.  If I were to meet you in person, I would be happy to have a drink with you all.  But not to discuss the case.

For Eleanor, I am interested in life in France, because I have visited for perhaps 7 days in total.  And food banks.  Because we have a tradition in Portugal of buying 'extra' food shopping in Dec/Jan each year, to make sure people less well off have a festive Christmas season as well.  There happens to be a long story behind this, starting around the end of the Medieval period, but this is not a history forum.

For Erngarth, a point I am interested in is her Burns Night menu, because of my interest in cooking.

For CarlyMichelle, I could probe for hours about Australia, which is where I think she lives.  I have real-life friends and relatives in Australia.  I watch A-League footie regularly.  Oddly enough, I have just finished watching a programme about the Bondi Beach lifeguards.  This last bit gave me a tiny sliver of information relevant to Madeleine, despite having nothing to do with her at all.

In the totally unlikely scenario that from the forum we were to group together in person, there's a very small number of people I would invite to my house to discuss Madeleine.  I like cooking.  My kitchen here is pocket handkerchief size.  My dinner table sits 6, so that is myself plus 5 guests.

I have been distanced from one of my guests from this forum, so there is a spare place a-begging. It might well be offered to Misty, who seems quite keen on digging further into the facts.

The forum member currently guaranteed a place is G-Unit, who trawls up relevant facts and information on regular basis.

Outside the forum, there is Anne, who confronts some of my ideas, in a constructive manner.  She forces me to think again.

Please socialise responsibly.  But I am here for one reason only.  Madeleine.

This is an interesting comment.

Food Banks in France go back to the last War, as far as I can gather.  Catholic mainly. There is The Restaurant de Coeur, started by a popular comedienne about twenty five years ago.  This is separate to The Commune Food Banks which are largely funded by The EU.  Portugal should be entitled to this..
The Restaurant de Coeur has trollies in supermarkets sometimes.  I always donate something.  In gratitude mostly.  They also have a fund raiser on television.

I have a Blog.  I never discuss or Blog about The McCann Case.

So how do you keep in touch with your family in Australia

Went to The Food Bank this afternoon.  Got some Scottish Smoked Salmon, past it's sell by date tomorrow, but who cares about that?  Also some Shrimps, Pork Chops, Beef Burgers, A Tin of Tartiflet, don't ask.  Really good Bread, French.  Pate and lots of French Cheese, which I am not wild about.  No Cheddar, but you can't have it all.

CarlyMichelle lives in Tasmania.  Really interesting.  Perhaps she will tell us about it.

I have never had it so good.  Britain wouldn't even grant me sick pay on the one occasion I was ill when I was self employed.

My passport has now run out.  Tough.  I won't be renewing it.
