Apocalypse Snow/Wind/Rain 2

... she is French – I am English and Driss is Moroccan by birth – and that she was being prevented from accessing the house she was born in, even though she hasn’t lived there for since before our road and chalet was built! It’s going to have to be a damage limitation exercise as if we challenge this further and lose we will end up paying all costs, compensation and I will end up in prison.

Not miraculous stuff found in books eight and a half centuries ago, not magical hagiographic type-stories that sound the same for every single saint, not naturalistic phenomena that strain credibility, but the kind of miracles that sick people pray for every day, and that parents and children dream about. The "I-threw-away-my-crutches-and-never-nee ded-them-again" kind of miracles that defy medical science (is that the right term today?) ...

... heads and won’t change.

I pay a total of 6 different taxes; tax on my personal income with only a 7000€ allowance, income tax on my business of 14.1% but without the ability to offset any costs, habitation tax which includes my TV licence, council tax, a holiday tax for each person who stays here at 0.34€ per person per night and a new local annual business tax of 200+€. Three of those are fixed regardless of ...
