Well, I believe that depends much on people telling us what happens, mostly
of the time. I will try to keep you guys up-to-date on what happens about
Brazil (where I lived for 38 years), Argentina (where my family is and I
tallk to them very ofter - you may not believe but weather and current time
difference is always a subject) and Ireland, where I'm living now. That's
the best I can do to help.

Thank you everybody for the kind replies.
