I sometimes used to refer to someone as a "berk".....until I discovered it's rhyming slang origins. Now I am prone to add "...in the original etymological sense" ....for added effect :vs

Sadly we lost another expat on Friday night. Her name was Bernice, lived alone up towards the Movenpick road on the East side for many years. I only ever saw here once, she having had the reputation of being a difficult woman to interact with. She literally wasted away, not certain as to her age, but she was elderly. But one thing that has to be applauded, awkward woman or not, was the dedication that two female expats gave to her over the last two years caring and seeing to her daily needs. Some should remember this when calling us a lot of stuck up and self opinionated snobs. There are far more good than bad living here.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.

May Bernice rest in peace too. God bless her and her loyal friends.

I hope she is in a happier place, spent many an happy hour with her, and I would like to reiterate Dusak's praise for the two ladies who cared for her so selflessly during her long illness.

Many gone home to escape the heat, many gone to the Red Sea, thats why we do not hear from the "Committy" anymore, the founder members have moved because of their love of Luxor. Goodness knows what happened to the ones that resigned maybe they are starting it off again.

Since my last post there seems to have been a post by the committy, so with a bit of luck it may be active again, maybe until next Summer. I know what you are saying, "Why have this support when it is maybe only 6 months of the year, when some of us live here all the year around?" If you love Luxor you will be here all the year around warts and all!!

I am still awaiting replies to e-mails I sent to the "Committy" last January, don't think I will get any replies now, oh well like most things you have to do it yourself or get no where... At least I am finding out things has I go along. :lol: :lol:
