    Re: 21 Feb

    Good evening all,

    We had another sunny day, almost 50 degrees, no complaints.
    Met up with daughter & granddaughter for her 10th birthday lunch. Safe place, only 2 other tables occupied, spread far apart so no worries. We all left full & very happy
    Kids are so funny these days, she mentioned now that she’s ‘double digits’ she has to live another 90 years until she’s ‘triple digits’, Lol

    Cyn, you are always in my thoughts & I hope you know that

    Det, sleeplessness definitely sucks, I get that. Some people can get away with napping so I guess it’s worth a try. I found that if I sleep, even a short time in the afternoon then I am sure to be sleepless at night again. Hope you can find a better way to deal with it than I do, I used to try the afternoon caffeine, can’t do that anymore either, geez. Glad the girls are happy & Good job on the interview. Hope something great comes your way

    Mick, where did the rain go? I think it’s coming this way Saturday & Sunday, oh well at least it will be warmish.
    Hurry up & finish your house & I’ll hire you to do several jobs around here, haha. Glad the fur kids are happy.

    Hello to PQ, Pauly & pie. Hope everyone is OK.

    Have a nice night all!

    Mae all -

    Quick hello again... so glad to read about what's going on for all ---

    OK here, beautiful sunny day and some melting. Got myself to clean and do a walk, and even worked a bit with a client! We were widely separated in her house, it it felt so good to be around another human.

    Mick, goodness, the tasks you get up to! So glad the Peskies are happy... (couldn't get your PM, but thank you...)

    Lav, 50! Wow! That sounds great... so happy your birthday lunch was good...

    Det - I bought arugula so I can make your pesto... looking forward... I think I can use walnuts, right? It's what I've got... hope you feel better...

    PPQ, hope all is well - you too, Sam and Pie -

    Trying my darndest to stay awake until 9 pm... propping my eyes open... going to take all my health aides... feel a little "something" dragging me down...

    Stay well all! Tomorrow is a full moon - I saw it in the middle of the night last night, and it is beautiful... To The Light...

    and finally

    Mr Potato Head to lose "Mr" title in gender-neutral rebrand - BBC News

    An interview with James Corden followed by one with Oprah Winfrey.
    I really wish Harry & Meghan would start respecting Harry & Meghan’s privacy.

    Following the Mr. Potato Head renaming, the publishers of Roger Hargreaves’ “The Mr Men” books are renaming them “The” so children won’t be confused by gender stereotypes.

    James Corden went from Hollyoaks to a Hollywood power player taking over Tinseltown with royal interviews and A-listers.

    Imagine what he could have achieved if he had talent.

    Salmond and Sturgeon. Something fishy going on here.

    I asked my mate why his Dad always called him "Donkey " thinking it might be because he has a big **** or something.

    " Hee Haw, Hee Haw, He hawways calls me Donkey " he said.

    Just seen the news on police officers giving cannabis to inmates to keep em calm

    prisoner: "I asked for hash browns at breakfast not fcking hash bars!"

    When the store manager returned from lunch, he noticed his clerk's hand was bandaged, but before he could ask about the bandage, the clerk said he had some very good news for him.

    "Guess what, sir" the clerk said. "I finally sold that terrible, ugly suit we've had so long"!

    "Do you mean that repulsive pink-and-blue double-breasted thing" the manager asked?

    "That's the one"!

    "That's great"! the manager cried, "I thought we'd never get rid of that monstrosity! That had to be the ugliest suit we've ever had! But tell me. Why is your hand bandaged"?

    "Oh", the clerk replied, "after I sold the guy that suit, his guide dog bit me".

    As he's drinking one drink and the green man is drinking the other, an Englishman down the bar who has had a few too many drinks says, "Hey Paddy!, what's that little green thing you've got down there?"

    The little green man runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a raspberry, "SPLBLBLBLT!," right in the face and then runs back to the Irishman.

    The Englishman mops himself off and says to the Irishman, "Hey Paddy!, what is that thing, anyway?"

    The Irishman replies, "Have some respect. He's a leprechaun."

    "A leprechaun!" says the Englishman laughing, "Boy, I never knew leprechauns were so ugly!"

    The leprechaun runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a raspberry again- SPLBLBLBLBT!

    This time the Englishman is really mad!

    "Tell that leprechaun that if he does that again I'll cut his pecker off!" he shouts.

    "You can't do that" says the Irishman. "Leprechauns don't have peckers."

    "How do they pee, then?" asks the Englishman.

    "They don't," says the Irishman. "They go SPLBLBLBLBT

    The Essex girl went to the clinic with her newborn for the first time. A rather posh looking lady sat by her side. After a while the lady introduced herself, telling the girl that this was her third child and she was to be called Samantha, Amanda, Fawcett.

    The girl smiled politely and said, "That's nice innit".

    The woman carried on, "For my first child my husband gave me a diamond necklace as a gift for being so clever".

    To which the girl replied, "That's nice innit".

    "And for my second child, he gave me a fur coat".

    The girl nodded politely, "That's very nice, innit".

    The posh lady was well into her stride now. "For this child he's taking me on a cruise".

    The Essex girl smiled again, "That's nice innit".

    The posh lady said, "And has your husband given YOU something for the birth"?

    "Oh yes", the girl said, "He bought me some elocution lessons".

    "Oh, and have you learned anything from them"?

    "Certainly", the Essex girl said. "I've learned to say 'That's nce innit', instead of f**k off".

    A jewish boy begged his Papa to let him start working in his father's Optical shop to learn the business of making and selling eyeglasses.

    As Papa finished showing the boy all the styles in inventory, the boy asked, "Papa, when a customer asks me how much for the glasses, what do I tell them"?

    His Papa explained, "Son, you simply use the BLINK method for determining price".

    The boy asked, "What is the BLINK method Papa"?

    His father answered, "Well, son, when the customer asks you how much for the glasses, you say $60". If he doesn't blink, say 'That's for the frames... the lenses will be another $60'. And if he still doesn't blink, say 'EACH'".

    Why We Love the Brits
    1) Commenting on a complaint from a Mr. Arthur Purdey about a large gas bill, a spokesman for North West Gas said, "We agree it was rather high for the time of year. It's possible Mr. Purdey has been charged for the gas used up during the explosion that destroyed his house."
    (The Daily Telegraph)

    2) Police reveal that a woman arrested for shoplifting had a whole salami in her underwear. When asked why, she said it was because she was missing her Italian boyfriend.
    (The Manchester Evening News)

    3) Irish police are being handicapped in a search for a stolen van, because they cannot issue a description. It's a Special Branch vehicle and they don't want the public to know what it looks like.
    (The Guardian)

    4) A young girl who was blown out to sea on a set of inflatable teeth was rescued by a man on an inflatable lobster. A coast guard spokesman commented, "This sort of thing is all too common".
    (The Times)

    5) At the height of the gale, the harbourmaster radioed a coastguard and asked him to estimate the wind speed. He replied he was sorry, but he didn't have a gauge. However, if it was any help, the wind had just blown his Land Rover off the cliff.
    (Aberdeen Evening Express)

    6) Mrs. Irene Graham of Thorpe Avenue, Boscombe, delighted the audience with her reminiscence of the German prisoner of war who was sent each week to do her garden. He was repatriated at the end of 1945, she recalled. "He'd always seemed a nice friendly chap, but when the crocuses came up in the middle of our lawn in February 1946, they spelt out 'Heil Hitler.'"
    (Bournemouth Evening Echo)

    Re: 21 Feb

    Hello all,

    Started with a rain/snow mix then the sun came out - so confusing, haha!! Spent some time cleaning up after my dog outside. You know what happens when all the snow starts to melt, Lol
    More rain due tomorrow so I guess I’ll get back to my inside projects

    Cyn, the little bit of extra light is starting to make me feel hopeful again. I’ve had enough of the gloomy skies, probably you as well.
    Get outside whenever you can, get that Vit D working. Hope you caught up on sleep & feel better today.

    Pauly, my younger grandson hits double digits April 6, haha! I am already missing having ‘little ones’ around but we can’t stop progress.
    Hope your day was good. Are you cutting hair anymore or is that over?

    Mick, the bunny butler, haha!!! We do spoil our friends, haha!!
    We happen to like James Corden over here, he’s funny & unique & entertaining.

    Hellos going out to Det, PQ, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 21 Feb

    Mae all - getting in early this Sunday morning.

    Mick, you do beautiful work, that's definite! What a lovely ledge... hello to the Peskies who Rule...

    Lav, so glad you got sun... gloomy here yesterday, snow/rain, but I got and walked anyway. This too shall pass... your beautiful work is SO being enjoyed by my friends!!! Have fun picking up poop... here at this guest house, I did the "bag" routine... lots of plastic, but fewer "surprises! Enjoy the day...

    Pauly, so nice to hear from you! Good luck, hope your energy stays with you for longer today.

    PPQP, hoping all is well with you, and that you are just busy with work... take care -

    Det, thx so much for posting your cooking video... it inspired me to make arugula pesto, despite the fact that I used walnuts, and forgot the reggiano cheese! Still, tasted good with a little chicken thrown in with pasta (which I rarely have, so that was a treat.) Post more please!

    Well, Pup and I had a scare last night... went to bed unfortunately late... but an hour later, he was in some kind of distress... vomiting, etc. I prepared myself for the worst (rotated stomach, drive to the Emergency Vet an hour away, etc., say goodbye...) but I thought it through and decided to try some OTC meds... Gasex and Pepcid... and about an hour later he was sleeping peacefully. I however got next to no sleep since I was in a big chair next to his bed where I could check on him. At 4 AM, I figured it was safe to move to the couch. At 6:30, he was all bright-eyed and eager for brekkie! Me, not so bright-eyed. But my buddy is still with me... ��

    Hello to Sam, Pie, and any others.
    Enjoy the moonlight, and hold all the light...
