    Morning all
    little colder than a couple weeks ago; 12 F as opposed to 65 not so long ago. Mick, I remember getting my first tractor with power steering, for once I didn't miss the "good ol days".

    off to surveying land, finally getting back to a parcel I started before Xmas. Finally got help from none other than my daughters BF. He's on his way to owing me 2 months rent so we're working out a deal of work = rent for a bit till he gets caught up. He had just gotten laid off yesterday. We'll see how this works.

    got the beast yesterday, perfect day for transporting frozen foods! Odd thing is I don't eat much meat at all. Find it doesn't agree with my bodily functions the next day... TMI, perhaps?

    Well off to feed and all that, glad to see you're back PQ.

    Mae everybody,Mick,that sucks!one day I was leaving work and I heard a crunching noise under my car and all of a sudden it was hard to steer,called hubs and told him and it was some belt and I had to get the car home quick cuz the belt controlled the temp too so it started overheating,it was the worst trying to get that hard to steer,rising temp car home! Sam,never tmi,look at the stuff I post haha I was looking at the blood type diet and it makes sense,I'm o so I should stay away from wheat,dairy,beans but can eat meat PQ,yeah we definitely missed you,sounds like you've been going through a lot,I'm on my next half-assed attempt at quitting smoking, I have an e-cig too and I like it but I love the real ones anyways much love to all,I hope we all have a great Wednesday

    Good morning Abbers, happy Hump day

    Mick, good luck with the car, hang onto your wallet. I know the pain of maintaining cars
    I remember those cars without power steering back in the day - they were a b*tch to park, ha ha!!

    Sam, at the risk of TMI - I gave up eating red meat years ago too for the same reason, ugh.
    There was a time, many years ago where we would buy a portion of locally raised beef & fill up the freezer but not anymore. I have learned to be more creative with vegetables, grains & beans, ha ha!

    Kuya, travel prep already?
    I know you are going to have a great trip

    MAE ALL....

    Mick...thanks for kicking us off this morning. Since you're in a rush this morning I'll supply the coffee. Sorry to hear you're having car issues again. So grateful for the new wheels as I haven't stressed over winter driving once. I often think what did we used to do at work before computers.

    Sam...thanks for the welcome back. Our temps have dropped off today as well. We're at 8F with a windchill of -4F. Good luck with the surveying. I think it's great that you're able to help your daughter's friend, everyone in Alberta can relate.

    KY...I'm with you when it comes to meat.

    Pauly...I'll half-ass attempt to quit right along with you. LOL

    Lav...thanks. And thanks for the link, perfect timing. I'll be bookmarking it and checking it out later today.

    Got time for another cuppa but there's no jokes to go with it. Boss has set up a meeting with a web designer this morning. The board of directors is getting frustrated over the state of our media presence. Boss has been trying to avoid the issue all together. Actually wish he'd stay out of it and let me handle it. LOL Have a Wonderful Wednesday all and all to come.....PPQP

    Best of luck on your car, Mick. The only thing I know about cars is where the gas goes in, so unable to offer you any helpful tips

    New e-cig here too.

    how is everyone?

    What's the difference between Scousers and Noah's Ark?

    Noah's Ark only took two of everything.

    On a sightseeing trip in the US, I found myself next to a young American girl

    "Did you hurt yourself when you fell from heaven?" I asked her.

    "Oh I love your English accent!" she exclaimed "So charming as well....are you trying to chat me up?" she continued bashfully

    "No, not at all! Just speculating on how this came to be" I replied as I gazed over the Grand Canyon

    President Barack Obama has gone against the will of Congress and announced a series of executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence in the US.

    "If we can make it possible to unlock a phone with a fingerprint, why can't we do it with guns?" he said.

    Is he for real?. How the feck can you unlock a phone with guns?

    "Since I know how much you like One Direction," I told my daughter, "I thought you might like to see them. Would I be right in thinking that?"

    "Yes! Yes! Yes! Oh my goodness!" she squealed.

    "Excellent," I smiled, "Well they are on that poster over there behind you."

    Saudi Arabia cutting all diplomatic ties with Iran after their embassy was attacked?

    That'll mecca mess.

    News: China replaces one-child policy with two-child policy.

    Now parents can stay at home with one child while the other one's at work.

    Tuesday 5 Jan: Police have confirmed the Yorkshire town of Whitby is 'cut off' accessible only by 4x4 vehicles.
    Asked about access to the port, the spokesman confirmed they were concerned there 'seemed to be a lot of water in the dock area too'.

    When I was younger, I always wanted to be an Illusionist.

    No matter how hard I tried, I never managed to perfect the Illusion of sawing people in two.

    Much to the dismay of my six half brothers and two half sisters.

    Rejection is all about who you no.

    Scratching my head on the Grand Canyon sightseeing joke. Can one of you translate for me?

    Lav, just have to post this pic of Stella and the same breed of dog that I have. What a coincidence!
