I think so too.
You already went through the bank crisis in 2008 when the Parex Bank was taken over by the state, no? I've heard that now the Latvian banks are in better shape and not so full of the Russian criminal money.

Anyway, let us know how the first euro days are going. You have more 'normal' exchange rate but here many people spent all their first money in euros and needed social services to help them afterwards, adult people but hey, I do idioitic things too, including with my money so I'm hardly the one to judge.

I've seen it like 3 times too I guess, not in full the last time on TV.
I guess I have the functioning heart, I've become a total crybaby in my old age btw.

Well, I just pay with my card in order to make it easier on everyone, I still haven't got any euros in my pocket The prices are still displayed in both currencies but now the price in euros is first and with bigger letters. I obviously haven't gotten used to it yet, it seems as if everything has gotten much more expensive

I didn't see the whole match and missed the end but Rafa beat Peter Gojowczyk 4-6 6-2 6-3. He had a bad start with 0-3 and losing the first set but that's Rafa & the experience for you.
I bet the hatas are fuming in GM again.

Final tomorrow, VAMOS!

Our silly boy did it anyway. I gotta watch it later.
6-1 6-7(5) 6-2 vs Monfils. We have the first title of the year.

Rafa wins Doha. Running out of things now that he hasn't won at least once. Where's the motivation...

First title in January for Rafa, long overdue!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

What an excellent start of 2014!

Rafa wins the Doha title (the first time he's won the first tournament of the year) and Lleyton wins the battle of the dads. My two favorite fighters doing well.

By the way, I thought that Monfils looked good: that hairstyle suits him.
