Sod Today… Bugger Tomorrow!   Leave a comment

As the sign says “Sod Today” and while you are about it I suppose you could “Bugger Tomorrow!”

I saw this sign when I was tottering around the planet while researching my wonderful unputdownable next book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ I was in, where else, America of course, I love the American attitude but unfortunately the “Sod Today” ideal seems to be coming home to roost and things are getting tight for a nation that doesn’t know what living above your means err, means!

Dealing With Armed Airline Passengers   Leave a comment

I was in Turkey a little while ago researching my soontobereleased bestseller ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ when I saw this sign. I promise I was trying to mind my own business and indeed everyone else’s – but in my defence that is what a Travelogue writer does isn’t it? I have to say it wasn’t the way the judge saw it but heigh-ho that’s the way the fortune cookie crumbles sometimes isn’t it.

So this is, I believe, how the Turks deal with armed airline passengers and it is a worrying revelation they let them collect the weapons before boarding the aircraft from the Silah Teslim Yeri or Weapons Delivery Location that is worrying isn’t it!

Please Can Someone Explain This Sign   Leave a comment

Being an innocent Cat does sometimes have its problems, which I have to say are sometimes almost as bad as not being able to lie something that comes naturally to most humans, I have explained in my latest book ‘Getting Out Excerpts From a Cat’s Diary’ that Cats find it impossible to lie read my book if you didn’t know that you’ll love it.

Unfortunately being an innocent Cat means that one is disadvantaged just like when I was with a couple of humans the other day and they saw this sign and couldn’t stop laughing.

Please can Someone Explain This Sign

Why they were laughing I have no idea, but I know that my lovely readers will end my embarrassment and tell me what this sign means and why its funny just let me know in a comment or write to me at thecat@thecatsdiary.com.

Proof – That Austrians Love To Share   Leave a comment

I have a feeling that the poor old Austrians and for that matter the Germans too have had a bit of a bad press these days being accused of being selfish and running the EU like it’s some sort of private playground but I am happy to tell you, my wonderfully cuddly readers, that I have discovered some evidence to the contrary.

Proof  That Austrians Love To Share

Ok so it’s a little overbearing to tell guests, even ‘dear’ ones that they must not eat their own lunch and, I presume, must share it with everyone present.

But although the sign is a little bossy it’s well intentioned, because as Bono the tax dodging bozo will tell you, if you allow him, there are millions of people all over the world going without, he just focuses on the more photogenic ones! So sharing is good.

What do Arabs Know Roundabouts?   Leave a comment

As this sign shows in both Arabic and English no one knows where the hell they are going and what will happen next in the Middle East.

In Two Minds About Visiting

I went to a few Middle eastern and Arab countries while I was travelling around researching my Travelogue and I have to say and I have to stress that if you are considering holidaying or worse living in any country in the Middle East do yourself a favour – DON’T!

There isn’t one country that could boast having just three elements for a successful visit these three important elements are of course:

  • Cleanliness

  • Personal Safety Guarantee

  • Inviting Citizens – they are only after your dollars

But then of course that criticism applies to a number of countries that believe for reasons best known to themselves that they would make great family holiday destinations, such as Great Britain, India, South Africa and so on.

Mmh I Think I’ll Have 2 Plates of Big Holes!   Leave a comment

I love travelling, though it has to be said that I didn’t really enjoy the travelling I did while researching my forthcoming blockbusting, unputdownable bestselling book, which if you haven’t heard is a Travelogue, called rather cleverly I thought, ‘The Cat’s Travelogue.’

Not only didn’t I enjoy the travelling I was more or less forced to visit countries that I would never ever think of travelling to, such as oh Bangladesh, Pakistan and two or three African countries, where even the locals don’t want to live in if they can help it and are desperate to immigrate from.

One of the great things about travelling is that you get the opportunity to taste the local cuisine or if you go to France you get to taste recipes stolen from the world’s master cooks the Italians.

Sometimes when you travel to countries where, for reasons best known to themselves, they have yet to learn one’s language their attempts to translate a menu into English has me (and I hope everyone else or I am wasting my time here) rolling in the aisles.

Here is a wonderful menu from a rather quaint restaurant in Madrid, as I said I rather fancy the ‘Fried Big Holes’ mainly because they must be better than the ‘Calluses to the Madrilenian’ surely?
