    Re: October 20th

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...feeling much better today, thanks for asking. Back spasms!!! I feel your pain. Every 3-4 months since you were 20? That's a pain. Sorry for the pun. How long do they last? Hope you get relief soon. Like Mick says, stay out of the line of fire.

    TG...I appreciated the parliament primer as well. Seems we all have our crosses to bear. Canada just had it's election yesterday and we now have a minority government, and I'm quite happy about that. No more "Just shut up and do as I say", everyone is going to have to get along.

    Mick...got to both my doctor appointments and they suspect I'm anemic and may need iron. Got the blood work done so will see what comes next. It's sunny but cold here with a strong north wind. The gardeners have till Oct 31 to put their plots to bed for the winter. Most of them have done so but sure there'll be the odd one that does nothing. One of the members cleaned up and put all my plots to bed while I was in the hospital. That was greatly appreciated.

    Lav...you've got to get that chicken coop light on a timer so you don't have to think about it. I'm glad you didn't end up with that huge tuna, even if most of it was taken. Nice that you could get out for lunch yesterday and that the g/kids behaved themselves.

    It's tortellini and alfredo sauce for supper, nice and easy since nothing is homemade. LOL Have a nice evening all....PPQP

    Re: October 20th

    Greetings Abbers,

    Zero sun & rain all day. We were supposed to go see our younger grandson play baseball this evening, oh well. Little league baseball has consumed his life since t(e school year started. I think itís helping him to mature & not behave like an a$$hole so much, lol.

    PQ, wow you be be a bit dehydrated & anemic. Get yourself loads of fluids & ask about an iron supplement. Be gentle with yourself
    The simple truth is we donít heal as quickly as we did when we were kids. Iíll be thinking about you.

    Pauly, what are the back spasms about? Is it a muscle thing or do you have any kidney disease? Take care of yourself too!
    Obviously the person doing the hiring at your business is not good on picking up vibes from applicants, geez!

    Cyn, I think this is IP weather, for sure!
    Iím such a crappy sleeper any little bit of light annoys me too. I imagine you also hsve city & neighbor noise now as well. Maybe blackout shades & noise canceling ear buds are in your future.

    Mick, the only things left in the garden are YBís figs & theyíre producing quite a few. Heís been slicing them & dehydrating them, yum.
    I have a few late blooming flowers left but not much. Apparently the amish community had a lot of frost damage last weekend. It was right at freezing when I got up Saturday morning. We usually donít get frost this early & it didnít last.
    The political arena around the world seems to be going straight to hell. Whatís to come of all of us?

    Hello to Det, hope you are well..

    Have a nice night everyone.

    Re: October 20th

    Mae all -

    PPQ, I hope you get it all sorted out about the iron.... our health is such a delicate balance of things, it's a miracle that we all function as well as we do! Best wishes - take it slow!!!

    Lav, good news about your grandson, wow that would be great if this helped! IP chicken soup (using a boned roasted chicken that hubs bought a few days ago) was delicious. Hubs is having arthritis issues with his hand, and reflux issues - he is going off of gut meds, so he is happy to be eating healthier - less pain, and easier GI. Tonight; cassava flour crepes with mushrooms and rainbow chard... trying to get some veggies into him!

    Pauly, dear me, hope that the spasms go away. Crazy at your work! Wish you could be in a place where you didn't have to deal...

    Mick, the Scottish brigade joke was priceless! Thx - I will be sending that one on... enjoy those last few flowers...

    Hello to Det and Sam, and all others... cheers for a good Hump Day...

    Re: October 20th

    hiya all...how are we then?firstly ...that lorry found down Essex with the bodies in it ...irrespective of wht you think or your beliefs ..you have people escaping from a regime to better themselves being taken advantage of by greedy merciless scum ,fleecing them for in some cases their wordly possessions and putting them into debt for the promise of a new life .I dont usually go over the top and watch my language ...but in this case I hope they catch the murdering bastards and deny them the right of life .
    Instead of all the political bullshit...why dont the politicians unite in stamping out not only the trafficking ,but also the reasoning behind why they need to leave their homeland .
    In addition to that ..I got a speeding ticket today through the post..automatic camera on the motorway ..58mph in a 50 zone.. so the options are I guess £100 fine and 3 points on licence..or the possibility of a speed awareness course £90 classroom course and no point or fine ...guess what Im going for if I can

    hiya tree hows you then?hope all is well ...did you get the veggies into hubby ? glad the jokes are ok .

    hiya pauly ..no Essex is the other end of the country but its immaterial its a burden shared by all ..hows your day been?

    hiya ppqp ...so you may be a knee Mick> thats a very small Irishman...ok ok coat has been got ..did a bit on the railway ...made a bridge etc ...Julie was at work so I used the food mixer to make papier mache clay ... took a wee while to claean all the print off it but its cool now!the rockwork is looking good..you take care

    hiya Lav hows you then?hows the baseball ..? I did a bit of work in the garden ..its supposed to pour down as from tomorrow ..

    Re: October 20th

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...hope things continue with your grandson, maybe that's what he needed, to feel a part of something. Got the results of my blood work back and my hemoglobin is low but has been improving. When I was discharged on Oct 2nd it was 85, yesterday it was 112 and normal is 185. So the doctor figures I don't need iron that it'll continue to improve. I don't know, I'm still contemplating just getting some OTC iron pills. Any advice? I have been drinking a lot more water.

    Pauly...I haven't had hamburger helper in ages, that's going on the list. Tonight I'm cooking up a couple of steaks, think I need some quality red meat. LOL And that is why I don't discuss politics with family, they'd all be dead. LOL

    TG...yup I do need to slow down, so I took the afternoon off. LOL I'm ok in the morning but fade fast, so will pay attention to that. Crepes sound delicious, something else to add to my list.

    Mick...I just can't imagine a life I would need to escape from just to survive. I am so lucky to have been born in Canada. I hope they catch the bastards and end them as well. So you'll be sharpening your pencil eh? Is that the Irish coming out? Glad you were able to get all the print off the food mixer, don't know how that would have gone over with Julie.

    Was supposed to have a Community Garden meeting tonight but I decided it would just be too much. They can handle it on their own. Hope everyone has a good night....PPQP

    Re: October 20th

    Good evening Abbers,

    Baseball was rescheduled for this evening, so we just got back. It was fun watching the little ones play, they’re learning the game. My hands were half frozen though, the temp dropped to 46 degrees. The kids didn’t seem to mind
    Tomorrow morning we will be at our granddaughter’s school for grandparents day fun!

    Pauly, I mentioned kidney disease because unexplained back pain is often the result of some kidney problem (infection or stones). Hope you’re feeling better now.

    Cyn, my grandson apparently needs sports in his life & that’s OK. He started soccer yesterday & will be finishing up fall baseball on Saturday. He does seem happier, hope it lasts.
    Glad your soup was good, love soup . Don’t know if I mentioned but yB has been using CBD oil on his arthritic wrists with great results. Just a few drops massaged in does the trick. I have found trying to get men to eat healthier is like trying to bleed a rock ~ not so easy, haha. Good luck with your efforts!

    Mick, that’s really sad about the 30 people. Human trafficking is happening everywhere, good business for scumbags
    Sorry about your speeding citation, happens. Over here we have an EZ PASS system which allows you to drive thru a toll booth without stopping. The device that pays the tolls is attached to your windshield. One time I let YB use my car & I ended up getting a fine in the mail for an unpaid toll because he drove thru too fast & the camera didn’t register the device on my windshield. I made him pay the fine, Lol

    PQ, you can always try an iron supplement for a short while, see if it helps. You need Vit C to absorb iron properly so keep that in mind. Actually, the liquid form of iron is easier on your system, just a few drops. Don’t overdo it though or you’ll have to deal with constipation. Glad you are looking out for yourself, take it easy!

    Hello Det, Sam & anyone else looking in tonight.
    Have a nice night all!

    Lav

    Re: October 20th

    Good afternoon and how are we today then ? hope all is well... it has just started to pour down with rain, just as Bonnie found a way to get into the plants so I've just had to chase all over the place and I'm soaked to the skin in while she sits and dries in the conservatory. apart from that Just Another Day in Paradise.... so let's have a brew and carry on

    hiya ppqp how are you today? so you have a low hemoglobin ?as for improving your iron get some spinach girl haha and no I don't mean a Popeye invitation!! drinking water won't do you any harm either take care

    Hi lav how are you doing? did you enjoy the baseball? 46 degrees! that's the middle of summer .I saw your picture on FB of the polytunnel .looks quite good with plenty of things grown over it... loofahs as you call them. Have a good day

    hi everyone else whatever you are, I hope you're enjoying life today in its sober state take it easy and have a good one

    A few years ago, the Sierra Club and the United States Forest Service were presenting an alternative to Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population.

    It seemed that, after years of the ranchers using the tried and true methods of shooting and/or trapping the predators, the tree-huggers had a "more humane" solution. What they proposed was for the animals to be captured alive, the males castrated, then let loose again...and thus the population would be controlled. This was ACTUALLY proposed to the Wyoming Wool and Sheep Grower's association by Sierra Club and USFS.

    Well, all the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes. Finally, an old boy in the back stood up, kicked his hat back and said, "Son, I don't think you understand the problem." These coyotes ain't fckin' our sheep....they're eatin' 'em".

    and a pretty appropriate one.......


    A man was speeding down the highway, feeling secure in a gaggle of cars all traveling at the same speed. However, as they passed a speed trap, he got nailed with an infrared speed detector and was pulled over.

    The officer handed him the citation, received his signature and was about to walk away when the man asked, "Officer, I know I was speeding, but I don't think it's fair - there were plenty of other cars around me who were going just as fast, so why did *I* get the ticket?"

    "Ever go fishing?" the policeman suddenly asked the man.

    "Ummm, yeah..." the startled man replied.

    The officer grinned and added, "Ever catch *all* the fish?"

    3 women: one engaged, one married, and one a mistress, are chatting about their relationships and decide to amaze their men....

    That night, all three will wear a leather bodice S &M style, stilettoes and a mask over their eyes .

    After a few days they meet again.....

    The engaged girlfriend: 'the other night, when my boy friend came back home, he found me with the leather bodice, 12 cm stilettoes and mask. As he saw me he said: 'you are the woman of my life, I love you'...then we made l*ve all night long

    The mistress: Ah! me too, the other night I met my lover in the office and I was wearing the leather bodice, mega stilettoes, the mask over my eyes and a raincoat, when I opened the raincoat... he did not say anything.....but we had wild sex all night

    The married one: 'the other night I sent the kids to stay at my mother's for the night, I got myself ready: leather bodice, super stilettoes and mask over my eyes....my husband comes back from work, opens the door and says:

    'Hi Batman, what's for dinner'?

    This lady wanted bigger breasts, so she went to her doctor to get a referral to a plastic surgeon. Her doctor says he would like her to try an exercise before surgery or drugs, see how it works first. He stands up to demonstrate, holds his arms straight out to the side, rotates them counterclockwise, and says, "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, if I do this enough, I'll have a big bust." She tries it, the doctor tells her to do that as often as she can, and come back in a week.

    One week later, she's back at the doctor, and tells him that it didn't work. The doctor asks her how often she did the exercise, she says 4-5 times a day. The doctor tells her to do it more, 30 times a day at least, and asks her to come back in another week. She tries this, performing the exercise whenever she can.

    One day, as she waited to check out at Safeway, she started her exercise. "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, if I do this enough, I'll have a big bust."

    The man in front of her turns around, asks if she sees Dr. Johnson.

    "Yes, how did you know?" she replies.

    The man faces her, places both hands on his hips, moves his hips in a circular motion, and says, "Hickory dickory dock......."

    Two Irish brothers Mick and Paddy have made a promise to their uncle. They had an Uncle Seamus who was a seafaring gent all his life and before he passed away, he made the boys promise to bury him at sea.

    Of course he did pass away and the "boys" remembered to keep their promise.

    So off they set with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded onto their rowing boat. After a while Mick says, "Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy"?

    Without a word Paddy slips over the side only to be standing in water up to his knees. "Dis'll never do Mick, let's row some more".

    After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side again but the water is only up to his belly, so on they row.

    Again Mick asks Paddy, "Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out Paddy"? Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says, "No dis'll neva do". The water was only up to his chest.

    So on they row and row and row when finally Paddy slips over the side and disappears!

    Quite a bit of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting himself into a state when suddenly Paddy breaks the surface gasping for breath.

    "Well is it deep enuff yet, Paddy"?

    "Aye it tis! Can yer hand me da shovel".

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...so just living the dream are you? LOL Trust Bonnie to evade you as it starts to pour. You get yourself warm and perhaps a big bowl of soup for supper. Love the new engine and bridge and the rocks turned out really well. I just happen to love spinach, in any form, so have been eating a lot of that.

    Lav...popped by the pharmacy today and picked up some iron supplements that the pharmacist recommended. They didn't contain any Vit C so picked some of that up too. Will start tomorrow and see how it goes.

    Managed to put in a full day, must have been that steak I had for supper last night. LOL Have a great night all...PPQP
