Immigrants and emigration — 17 Comments

  1. Wow… I wonder if I invite loads of foreigners into the house, if MY husband will go to Greenland? Well, as nothing else has worked yet, it might be worth a go…

  2. Boghole of a country?! Well, that’s not what I think, I love it and – sorry to dissapoint you – I’m planning to stay, although I have plenty of places around the world I could go to besides my natal Romania.

    We’ll miss you here, and hope you’ll continue blogging even after you’ll become an honoured citizen of Greenland AND win the lottery!

  3. what ya want going all the way up there for? Is there not enough lashing rain, gale force wind and thick grey cloud around today in dear ole oirland for you? on the other hand, I miss snow – I havent seen real snow in years…..

  4. Susan – Do you wamt some of mine?

    Welcome Gabriela! 🙂 Why should I be disappointed if you stay? Actually, Ireland is a grand country. It’s the bastards who run it who have destroyed it for me. Anyway, I believe they gave very few traffic jams in Greenland?

    Charmed – Why not Greenland? Do you want me to mingle with the criminals and wrinklies in Spain?

  5. *gasp*

    It’s started already?!?! I thought we were still in pipeline territory! Is it too late to say goodbye to the funky wallpaper?

  6. Kate – It’s a very practical colour. It hides the Guinness stains well.

    K8 – I don’t think there are many pipelines in Greenland. What funky wallpaper?

  7. Hey, nice snow cat. And the color works well with your arctic overalls. I could talk with the head of VAST (Vermont Association of Snow Travelers) and see if they might have a spare snow cat they’d be willing to part with.

    And it sounds suspiciously like Herself is running an underground railroad type of operation in the basement perhaps? Secret tunnels and all that? Heck, if it helps pay the bills it’s worth putting up with, yes?

  8. Nice…erm…vehicle. I could do with one of those to get #1 down to the bus stop when it’s icy. C’n I have a lend?

  9. I love snow and all but it gets frigidly icy up there! -17C is the winter average temperature! That’s cold. Of course, if Gorebal warming continues, Greenland will have lush green fields yet again. 🙂

    When I was a kid, we got at least a foot of snow a week during the winter. Nowdays, we rarely see an inch of the powdery white stuff. 🙂

  10. English Mum: Why thank you, dear. I don’t suppose you wear glasses do you? 😉

    tt: Glad you posted that link. It fills in some of the gaps in what I’ve read over the past few months.

  11. Kirk M – If you have contacts in the SnoCat area, it would be handy. I need something family sized preferably with less than 500,000 miles on the clock?

    An underground mountain railway? It would be unusual?

    JD – I don’t know what you’re on about. Global warming? It’s getting colder here every year.

    E Mum – You never said that about me! *shuffles off in a sulk*

    TT – Ha! A nice link. As you say – off topic but whet the hell: it’s a good one.

  12. Grandad,

    I think they might have good size one available at Killington ski resort, I’ll let you know.

    Yeah, I guess an underground railroad might be a bit unusual in Ireland considering it’s an American phrase pertaining to the vast network of people who helped fugitive slaves escape to the North and to Canada during the 19th century. Still, you never know.

  13. Are you sure they are foreigners? I thought all the foreigners in the world were on the ferry in Sydney yesterday?
