from Lawrence, this Sunday meeting, Fantasy; help or harm + News

Dear friends,

This Sunday we are discussing: Fantasy; help or harm.
Meeting for now at O'Connors at 6pm for 6:30pm must start!!
In the meantime thanks to the selfless efforts of some of you we are
getting closer to a permanent venue to hold our meetings.
Last Sunday we checked out the Centro Segoviano and another bar not far
from Bilbao. The general impression seemed to be that the Centro
Segoviano, which is above Clamores, is a good place for us. We have the
option of staying in the main bar if we are a few people (ten or less)
or the Tertulia room which can hold an infinite amount of philosophers.
So basically the good news about the Segoviano is that we have all the
space we want, the privacy we want, no football, drinks are reasonable,
and the bonus is that the land lady can prepare meals for special occasions.
On the other hand, the centre is closed for Christmas and Easter, and
the whole of August. And for those you know the place it is not on the
main street but still a short distance from the metro.
Anyway, we can discus this venue and others which I still have not got
round to consider.

------Request from Lawrence on behalf of a student
In the meantime I have a student who will be visiting London maybe
between 12 June and 13 July and would like to find a British family to
stay with during her visit there. She is a university lecturer and is
visiting for work related purposes and not to learn English. However,
she likes British culture hence her wish to stay with a British family.
Most grateful if you can help. Thanks

------Jim asked me to share details with of holiday flat his
sister in law has for rent:

Flat for rent in Playa del Albir
(Municipality of Alfaz del Pi, Alicante)

- Altea is about five minutes by car, however you can also walk there in
about twenty minutes along the promenade. It is a very picturesque town
and the views are spectacular.
- Calpe and the Peñón are also nearby, about 20 minutes by car. You can
walk to the top of the Peñón, however it is a steep incline so be
prepared to perspire a little. When you come down you may feel a bit
peckish so if that is the case there are some fantastic Seafood
Restaurants in the port of Calpe.
About the Flat
The building is on the frontline of the Playa del Albir. The apartment
itself comprises a kitchen, sitting-room, dining-room, a bathroom, two
bedrooms and a balcony. It has two swimming pools, a small one for young
children and a larger one for adults. The pools are bounder on one side
by a flower garden and fruit trees. Furthermore it is fully furnished.

An Immersion heater in the kitchen provides hot water for showers and
for use in the kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted with
Washing-machine, Fridge and Dishwasher.
As it is located in a residential area is not difficult to park in the
street. Furthermore there is free public car park just beside the house.
