M&S charge 5p for a standard plastic bag at their self service checkouts. I always use the 'no bag' option as I believe I should be getting a discount for doing their work for them. Sainsburys, Asda & Tesco don't charge for them. And as far as I know, neither do Aldi or Lidl.

In my country, plastic bags are charged which is okay.
In Tesco it is 3c in particular. The price is ridiculous, but I still think in case when I, as a customer, decide to use self-service cash desk deserve some small benefit and 1-2 plastic bags for free would be fair enough.

Well, there is still at least one great advantage on paying at those self-service cash desks, namely you don't have to spend time in line because there are often bunch of empty cash desks, but I think this could motivate some lazy people slightly.

You may indeed. I currently live in Austria, but my favourite country has to be France. I love the people, landscapes, food, roads, villages, towns, cities... I'd love to live there some day...

You wouldn't exchange Britain for France now, would you?

Actually, if the prospect was there and I can get nice secluded property in the Provence or Dordogne, then I would.

I don't know about Romania, but this summer I'm spending here in Turin reminds me a lot of the one I spent in Munich... lots of rain temperature rarely over 20°C...

There was a lot of rain comparing with usual values, but temperatures higher (around 25-30), although not as high as usual. July is called "the oven", it didn't confirm it's name though, still warmer then Germany.

But I think this summer is weird in all of Europe.
As was the winter, which was no winter at all.

Here in NRW June was 4-5 degrees warmer than February which is crazy in this part of the world. July was a bit warmer, the hottest day of the year was that of the German Formula One GP (near to 40 °C) but August is so far rainy and not quite warm, today it was 21 °C.

Sad
He was apparently suffering from depression and alcohol abuse. First clues hint that it was a suicide. He was found at home.

In those cases we'll never know the truth. 10 years ago the former cyclist Marco Pantani died in a hotel room, aparently for cocaine overdose But recently, some rumours about a possible murder came out.

It doesn't have to do with money. You can be depressed with or without money...
