    MAE ALL...

    Pi...thanks for starting the thread this week. I swear this covid virus has zapped everyone's intelligence. Went over to the garden and everyone was behaving themselves. A long standing member and volunteer was there and said the water wasn't turned on. I said that's strange as I asked the building coordinator specifically to turn it on for the weekend. Told her as soon as I finished whatever it was I was doing I'd have a look at it. Asked her where her tap handle was and she just said oh. (we do not leave the tap handles on to avoid vandalism) She went and got her handle and yes of course the water was on. That procedure has not changed since we got our irrigation system. Gotta tell ya, I've been doing a lot of counting to 10 these days. LOL

    Mick...good to see your post. 200 plants, wow! You definitely fit the "go big or go home" bill. LOL We're going to be in the 20's today too with a chance of thunderstorms this evening. The volunteers who raised all the in-ground plots headed up to Edmonton for the weekend. That's where they get all their plants from. We planned on getting together on Wednesday to plant potatoes. Guess what day of the week is supposed to be cold and rainy? Yup, Wednesday. Glad the peskies are doing ok, keep them out of the greenhouse. We don't need Bonnie experimenting with food.

    Wishing everyone a good Sunday...PPQP

    Well back to a normal Monday morning . Up, wash shave breakfast, ring in sick........

    My mate just told me sixty jokes in an hour.
    He's a laugh a minute.

    My girlfriend said to me when I picked her up from work today. "When was the last time you had sex with someone that wasn't me?"

    I said, "Before we met."

    She smiled. "Aw really? That's so sweet."

    "Yes," I replied, "About 20 minutes ago."

    Last week I decided to start the couch to 5k program.

    Done fck all running yet but yesterday I put in a personal best of 6 hours on the settee.

    My mate asked me where I buy my disposable gloves.
    "I don't buy them, I just try on the ones lying about the car parks till I find a pair that fits."
    He said.."seriously mate, that is so dangerous, you're putting yourself and others at risk."
    "fck sake" I replied..."I'm not totally stupid, I turn them inside out first."

    Re: May 17

    Good evening folks!

    Decent day here but it’s a bit too windy making my bad hair month even worse, haha!!

    Mick, I was in the mood for a tasty vegan meal so the lentil pie hit the spot
    Chickens are fine here, so far anyway. I haven’t seen any fox here since YB reinforced the fence around the chicken yard & I put that electronic thing out there that makes noise & scares them off.
    I’m watching for the return of the black snakes, ugh - a spring time ritual around here. Sorry everyone has had to cancel trips this year, not much to be done about that. I’d love to go somewhere too but that’s not going to happen.

    Pauly, keep yourself safe at work! If anyone looks sick, send them on their way.
    Your husband is right, lentils are a superfood. They are loaded with protein, fiber, iron, B vits, etc. I have loads of recipes for lentils, soups, side dishes & salads & more. Meat is so darn expensive right now & doesn’t have half of the nutrition. Here’s the recipe: https://yupitsvegan.com/vegan-shepherds-pie-lentil/

    Hello to PQ, Pie, Det, Sam & Cyn! Hope everyone is OK.

    Have a nice evening everyone!

    Happy Tuesday All,

    PQ, glad that gardeners are behaving. Maybe people do better in smaller groups? Hope the weather doesn’t interfere with the rest of the work you have planned.

    Nice that you received travel refund, Mick. Might there be a non-travel way for you and Julie to treat yourselves?

    Lav, I’m trying to do a better job of eating. Cooking for one is more work than I want to do right now. I’ve been ordering several meals a week from a caterer. Order on Thursday, pickup on Monday. The food is prepared by a chef, minimally processed, with no added sugars. All I have to do is heat it up. So far, a great option for me.

    Pauly, looking forward to stories from your work. Hope you can find some humor in the happenings to offset the stress.

    Waiting on test results for foster dog. Fingers crossed we get them by Friday.

    Re: May 17

    Mornin all ...how are we today then?hoe all is well..Cloudy this morning ,but it has gone really hot here ...tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day of the year so far ,Im still swaying on whether to put my plants into the garden or not ...I dont want them wiped out in one hit .ok brew time ..(tea for moi still)

    hiya pie how are you doing then?hope the dawg results are positive Yes we are looking at the possibility of putting it towards a little motor home .. this is the one we are looking at Autoquest 115 - 2 Berth Motorhome | Autoquest Motorhome Range dont look at the price ...no way would I pay that ...but we need to see whether it suits us or not so when this is over we will hire one first..Ive seen a good few "preloved ones at not bad prices ..plus the fact my little van would be going too so I need to see if it would suffice instead of a car until Julie retires
    We buy meals from a company ..it was Julies idea to start with ..I said no to start with then gave it a try ..and I must confess ..it works ...food is good ...ad also there is no wastage at all.you order from a menu ..they send the ingredients ..you cook ..I would take a guess we save about £200 a month on shopping doing this ..

    Lav...glad the wind is there ..my hair would be all over the place...hows tyou then? hope all is good ..I agree lentils are ace ...I prefer red lentils .so your learned leader has advocated taking unknown tablets ? wonder what the tablet thought when it found out it had taken a dope .best of luck with the black snakes .

    hiya pauly ..yup lentilz iz good ..how are you today then? it has in some cases made people dumber and politicians into dishonest folk ...now I know that doesnt sound believable but it has been know for them to tell porky pies !you look after you n yours ..

    hiya ppqp hope all is ok with you then today?

    big shout to all..

    CNN reports that the Navajo Nation has the highest per capita Covid problem in the United States ,
    and they are having to fight it without running water.


    My best wishes to Running Water's family & friends

    I love living life on the edge.

    For the past eight weeks, I've only washed my hands for 19 seconds at a time.

    Scouse social distancing: Only robbing houses that are two metres apart.

    Statistician, Dr Geoffrey Ellis, has analysed that people born under the star sign Gemini are the funniest ones of all the zodiac signs. While Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are likely to be the least funny.
    Personally, I think all that horoscope crap is complete mumbo jumbo
    ............then again, that's typical of us Scorpios.

    They are making it up as they go along: Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary rants.

    Much like Ryanair pilots.

    "Do you ever think about somebody else when we're making love?" my wife asked.

    Shocked, I said. 'Why would you ask me that?"

    "Because you have VR glasses on," she replied.

    Two new symptoms were added to the list of potential coronavirus symptoms today...the loss of the senses of smell and taste, the police can stop you and question you on these symptoms.

    I was a bit worried when I went out earlier today I did not want to be stopped by a copper sticking his truncheon up my nose and yelling “can you smell this...can you....can you ?”

    Fortunately I was lucky, I was stopped by the fuzz but just to query my lack of taste and I ended up being sent home and told to self isolate for at least two weeks.

    I don’t know whether to be relieved or annoyed, they were the fashion police.

    The shops in town are starting to reopen.

    Just in time for a liquidation sale.

    I'm not saying Donald Trump's stupid but he wants to give a long-dead Chinese philosopher and politician of the Spring and Autumn period a very small gift, upon his next visit.

    All because he heard a member of his government say, "It wouldn't take much to confuse us."
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7

    Mae everybody, Mick I was just gonna ask about your little van when you brought up the RV, I suppose it wouldn't be big enough for both of you, that's why you're looking at an RV, I wonder if DT has coronaviris and that's why he's taking those pills? They'd never tell us anyways but it just seems weird he'd take them just to take them? So many things they don't divulge anyways, I bet if we knew the truth(not just him but all the gov officials) we'd shit our pants! Pie, hope everyone is ok with the pup, Lav I'll hafta look into those recipes and find something tempting, PQ, how's your son doing? Much love to all and wishes for a great BF Tuesday for us all!
