The Recipe


Greetings lads It’s only a few short days away from MB’s┬ádeparture back to the homeland, to kith and kin. MB will take break from the blogging for few weeks ’till he gets back from the Emerald Isle. But as will be burning out the camera with pics, will post up some good ones for all Crosser followers to drool over. Yes lads, drooling will…

The Holy Book


Marhaba & Hello from MB Firstly lads, an apology from MB. In last week’s blog MB used an Arabic word that he though was acceptable translation of the English word ‘prostitute’. It was subsequently pointed out to MB that the word used is a street-slang swear word, not suitable for common usage (as in MBs blog) and likely to cause offense. The Egyptian lad…

Marhaba


Salam lads May you all have some salam/peace in your lives. Its a good thing to have for sure. Mentioned last week that we had some heavy rains out these parts in recent weeks. MB also mention the tornado that ┬áhe recently got caught up in (& survived) and the earthquake that shook the UAE that had its epicenter in Iran. We certainly don’t…

Style


Greetings lads Hope all well with kith & kin. MB arrived back in Saudi on Wednesday after 10 days in Dubai. Apologies for all the spelling mistakes & typos in last week’s effort lads. Made the corrections in due course but alas after I published. Also had thought might mention a few small things to you this week that might make the blog reading…

Happy Valentines!


Greetings ladies It’s Valentine’s Day ladies and am only thinking of my female Crossers of course. So big Middle East greetings and affection to you all, where ever you are sunning yourselves.

Calculation Day


Sabah Al Khaire lads (Good morning lads) Bit on the cold side at home I hear. Hopefully wood fires burning, electric blankets & hot water bottles serviced keeping you all snug & cozy. The weather in central Saudi Arabia is a delight for fair skinned Irish lads with lilly white skin who hate heat & direct sunlight. Its akin to decent Irish Summer weather…

Awakening


Salam, Shalom & Dia DhuitI hear parents are christening their kids with the name ‘Noah’ in ever increasing numbers back home lads. On account of fact a name like that will bestow junior with some ark building qualities from the Gods, and his skills will be in big demand in the years ahead. The new IT! Was chatting with the family during the week…

For the ladies


Salam Lads Inshallah you are all in good spirits, life is giving you bounties and the sun is shining. The HX Report goes from strength to strength as you all know lads but MB is trying to build up the numbers. So if you have any pals who might be interested please send on the details. Or ’email groups’ who might be interested. Further…

New Beginnings

Promise you lads, will remain humble and modest, and continue to welcome contributions from wretches of whatever creed. This is my commitment to you lads and I am man of my word. New to this higher tech world lads so still…
