Starbucks next to the Jarir bookstore in Riyadh? I've been there!

I always find it interesting how KSA news is reported internationally. See below and the following: https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/43znbp/women_barred_from_entering_starbucks_in_saudi/

The discussion thread on Reddit has 2000 replies, 5000 likes and is trending on 'WorldNews'. The article below refers to numerous Tweets on the subject. Lots of people have an opinion on Starbucks banning women from their stores in KSA....The problem is, that's not what's actually happened at all!

The truth of the story is that one branch of Starbucks has temporarily stopped serving woman customers whilst building work is carried out.
Women reportedly barred entry after gender-separation wall ordered by authorities collapsed

Gender wall isn't quite correct. It's a privacy screen to separate the 'Families' area (for woman and for families) from the 'Singles' area (men only).

I hated last season, it was not well written as it was clear GRRM had his priorities elsewhere. My husband pointed out that it appesrs he really enjoys fame, to the extent that he is no longer writing.

Hundreds of pages? How many "hundreds"? 200? 300? For a guy that writes of upwards of 800 pages, per novel, he might not even be a quarter of the way thtough the process.

I have a feeling my husband's prediction will be true: GRRM will pass before the epic is finished.

Dear Microsoft.

Thank you applying updates to Windows 10 on my laptop. Thank you especially for reverting to US keyboard while doing so. This really helped keep me on my toes when trying to enter my password, which contains special characters. Changing the applied OS keyboard so it doesn't match the physical keyboard really adds an extra layer of security to prevent access to the PC!

I realised what the issue was very quickly (two failed login attempts) but less tech-savy users would probably be stumped by this and left unable to logon. It's f**king stupid, not at all user friendly and easily avoidable.

Hmph!

+Steven Frith​ has excellent taste in brew. Enjoy!

If you can find it, try Koenig Ludwig, and for very $$$ beer, Saxo is a winner as well.

Went to the Woolpack for Sunday lunch. Staff were really friendly, the roast dinner very good value, and the food well presented. Will definitely visit again.
