The quality on my subscriber copy is right and the contents are very good as the free plan as well. So, in the whole, I'm very satisfied about it.

Thread: How much do you spend on the hobby per year?

Well folks, I don't know what's coming next here in Portugal with the "bail out" but since Janury the Gov. takes off, each month, 350 Euros from my salary after taxes! (I'm a top senior engineer in the company at 1 year to retirement - imagine what happens to the others at lower places!)
 
So the 600 Euros that I had as my annual budget - including club and national association fees (150 E) must decrease.
 
However, as I build from plans and own designs my spents are more with balsa, spruce, glues and covering because I've all the hardwear needed.
 
Cheers,
 
Augusto

KC - well said. Whether you like Marmite or not really doesn't matter of course - and in that respect its like so many other things in life that people think matter - but don't!
 
Its like "which Mode is best", "IC or Electric", "Slope or Field" etc. etc. there are no right answers - over the history of the world at lot of folks would have been a lot happier if they had realised that. Its Gulliver's Travels - the "big enders" and the "little enders"

Ahhhhh...but who's better - Clapton or Hendrix?

One still is ... the other was...

I must agree with you Terry.
 
And I think that Bach's music goes very well with Monet's impressionist paints, and the hands of Keith Jarret (a jaz musician) in that hapsichord made a very good "ensemble" .

50 years ... already? ... good memories from those days! ,,, time flies
 
 
BEB - you're very right indeed! that was me making some confusion! In fact, I was forgetting the "blue lane" and you know why? because everytime I go through the "blue lane" I don't feel it as costums!
 
It's understandable UK as a reluctant European! it only wiil be need to read History! and I support that position BEB.
 
Cheers

BEB, you're making some confusion. When you come from UK to the Continent - CE zone, you only have to show your passport at the the country of your entrance to be registered in the Shengen Protocol. You don't need to pass through customs becose you're coming from a CE country - free circulation of goods.
 
After entering the CE space you, as a CE citizen, are free to go werever you want inside CE zone - free circulation of people and goods.
 
The same for us when we go to th UK; arriving at Heathrow we show the passports to be registered and contrled by the British policy system. We don't need to go thtough costums or declare goods. After this, we are free to go to Scotland, or Irland because we are CE citizens and beeing contoled by the system as you are..
 
For those goods I order from UK, I pay VAT as you in the origin (UK) and they come to my address without paying anything else and without going trough the costums. From US or from other countries out the CE is the same as for you, but that's an other story!
 
Cheers,
 
Augusto
