That Bulgaria must be a dangerous place laugh

I read that the drug mafia is avoiding Bulgaria as a transit country and going through the new state of Kosovo instead.

Dublin City Marathon was won by Ukranian. By Paul Melia


Tuesday October 28 2008

RECORDS were broken and marriages made over the course of yesterday's 29th Dublin City marathon.

A record 11,700 runners pounded the capital's streets for much of yesterday, but sporting fans will have to prolong their 15-year wait for an Irish winner just a little while longer.

The first of the elite athletes home was Ukrainian Andriy Naumov, who crossed the line with a time of 2:11:06 over the 26 miles, netting himself €15,000 in the process.

He looked like he could have kept running. Grinning from ear to ear, the 36-year old pronounced himself to be very happy with his performance.

The biggest-ever field of runners made their way in bitterly cold conditions to Fitzwilliam Square for the 9am start, with runners taking part on behalf of charities, as well as serious competitors intent on being first over the line.

There was plenty of brightly-clad athletes taking part, including a group of Frenchmen in tricolour wigs; 67-year old Viking James Hempsey, who has run 32 marathons; a pair in Batman costumes; and one man dressed in full army regalia, including backpack and boots.

Happy

Lord Iveagh -- aka Arthur 'Ned' Guinness -- was dressed as a toucan and running in aid of the Iveagh Trust, and while many of the contestants wore grim expressions of serious sporting intent, others were happy to stroll hand in hand, enjoying the morning sunshine.

In all, the field took 10 minutes to pass and by the end of the day a couple of world records were broken. There was also one marriage proposal -- with Ashley Eidmann taken aback by the sight of her boyfriend on bended knee as she reached the finish line.

Galwayman Ernesto Antonio (44) broke the world record for a heart transplant recipient, breaking his previous time by eight minutes and coming home in 3:45.

Londoner and honorary Limerickman Simon Baker broke the record for completing a marathon on crutches, coming in at in 6:47:58 -- almost half an hour quicker than the previous fastest time.

"You're now talking to a world record holder," a delighted Simon, who ran in aid of children's charity the Bubble Gum Club, said. "I'm wrecked, but I had a great team. I had 14 stone coming down on one leg, and it really hurts. I'll probably take it nice and handy this evening."

It was more about taking part than winning or breaking records.

Man charged with bus terminus stabbing
A 21-year-old Palestinian was yesterday charged with stabbing a Libyan at the Valletta bus terminus.

Akef Meji Werd pleaded not guilty to grievously injuring Abdulrzaki Albuashi at 10 on Saturday evening.

Mr Albuashi was stabbed with a pointed object during an argument between the two.

Magistrate Joseph Apap Bologna granted Mr Werd bail against a personal guarantee of €1,000.

The police also filed an application to deport the victim who allegedly is in Malta illegally.

Send me to prison as I have no money, bus driver pleads

A bus driver yesterday asked to be sent to jail rather than be fined, claiming he was completely broke.

The 60-year-old man, Gerald Scicluna, who walked into the courtroom covered in engine oil, pleaded guilty to insulting and slightly injuring the husband of the Sta Venera mayor in an incident sparked off by the council's complaints that his garage in Cannon Road is in a dingy state.

The incident took place yesterday at 9.30 a.m., just outside the man's garage in Sta Venera.

The victim, Joseph Vella, said, when contacted after the court hearing, that he was outside his china shop, spraying insect-repellent, when Mr Scicluna went round. He started insulting him, his wife and his mother as the shopkeeper walked back into the shop.

Once inside, the bus driver, who followed him, started beating him. Partly because of the shock and partly because he was wary of damaging the ceramics on display, Mr Vella said he did not react.

"He was like a bull in a china shop," Mr Vella recalled later.

A crowd assembled outside the shop, attracting police attention. In fact, Mr Scicluna was arrested on the spot and arraigned shortly after.

He immediately pleaded guilty and Magistrate Joseph Apap Bologna proceeded to pass judgment. When he found out that the punishment would be a fine, however, Mr Scicluna objected, saying he would rather be sent to prison because he was completely broke. "I already have €30,000 in debt to pay to my bank" he said.

The magistrate, however, said there is no way he would send Mr Scicluna, who was not represented by a lawyer, to prison. He was fined €233 and given a month during which to pay the amount.

The case attracted the condemnation of the Local Councils Association which expressed solidarity with the mayor, Elizabeth Vella, and her husband.

The mayor said after the hearing that Mr Scicluna has a very dirty garage in which he keeps his vehicles. "He thinks he is above the law" and went after my husband because I am a woman, she added.






..... do you still think Bulgaria is dangerous??? dunno

wave
I did get robbed (not mugged). On Monday. Yesterday I went to the police in Vidin and filed a complaint and looked at some mugshots on a computer. I was pretty sure I recognised one of the faces.
Today 4 cops in 2 cars from Belogradchik, which has jurisdiction over my village, came to my house and asked me a lot of detailed questions. We spent well over an hour in the warm sunshine, me providing as much information as possible in my broken Bulgarian. One of the cops, a woman, wrote everything down and I had to sign the paperwork in several places.
Then to my great surprise they went out to the road and brought in this handcuffed guy who had been in one of the cars! I immediately recognised him as one of the culprits!
laugh

Btw you can thrash me anytimerolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing Did I really say that?

Yeah the CNN weather map showed the line between the cold snowy sleety windy weather and the warm, nice, pleasant sunny weather a couple or 3 days on the trot.

Cutting diagonally to the North East through about Trieste/Croatia/Slovenia. This line is edging eastwards though and I'm preparing my getaway. laugh
