I see your topic on that minimarket
Crabbies beer looks more than drinkable

The day you'll see a topic like:
"Can I live in Switzerland with 1 000 000 000chf" per year?
...
You been grave digging again?

We did have one of those once..
Somebody from Zug- twas a while back, and i dont have the energy to go find it now. Only about 3-7 mil per year - just a little player, hardly even worth mentioning..

guilty.

I found out on another topic of tax rate, that P. Collins was living close.
I was so surprised, I could not stop thinking what he could be doing here-
Why someone rich would stay here (beside tax reasons, of course).

But then it's quiet and peaceful maybe that's what we all need!?

Mind you i'm not an addicted fan- I like the guy's music but I don't care about his personal life.

I've have read throught the years some celebrities statements about why they were in Switzerland, one that came quite often was that neighbors were not annoying them....

Phil he was married to a Vaudoise, but they divorced some time ago. Didn't know he still lived here- perhaps for the kids.

Just wait until they make a mistake:

The day you'll see a topic like:
"Can I live in Switzerland with 1 000 000 000chf" per year?

you'll know it's one of the celebrities!

Not if it's MC Hammer.

So I read in the Migros paper today, that Phil Collins lives amongst us too. Along with Tina, Kimi, Michael-the-Stig..

So are any of you going to own up to being one of these people?
It's not me but I swear that he wrote "Land of confusion" after moving here

Yeah he was in the Migro paper and on tv recently. He has a place in Züri. Maybe if Grumpy gives him a deal on cheese he may turn up at the Viadukt one Thursday?

He can't be too far, he's created the Little Dreams Foundation here, to promote unknown talents in arts and sports.
