    Re: 25th July

    Ahoy ho ABeroooodles near and far!

    I'm so very tardy as always. I'll sit in the corner while I finish this....

    Holy snotburgers Batman! I got 4 shoots booked today. whew! they are spread out over the next couple weeks but it's an awesome sign and I'm pretty well chuffed as
    our Mick might say.

    Otherwise, just blazing away with live and online networking and all that jazz. Still cooking every day of course. Made an uncharacteristically conventional meal of burgers tonight,
    but of course had to add a side of grilled sweet potatoes, and another of broccoli/mushroom pasta (gluten free). I'm so stuffed! moink.

    been getting to the gym again which is so good for my brain and body. Darlene really encourages me to go which is very sweet.

    Treegirl, that sounds like a fun project with the musicians! and perhaps a bit hectic.

    Lav, too much rain? boy we could use a bunch. it's pretty scary here with draught conditions ongoing. We did get an electrical storm recently so there's
    some groovy weather we're sharing.

    Pauly! so good to see you. Hows my ol' crazy-town doing?

    PPQ, thanks for the well-wishes...they are working!

    ok, I'm told I have to pay attention to a netflix show.... ack!

    be well loves

    MAE ALL...

    TG...OMG, sure wish Lav and I could pop over and help you. We could make goodie bags! After this, no committing to another festival for awhile. You need some you time.

    Mick...glad you're home safe and sound. You had a busy day yesterday and had to deal with it all during the storm. Seems like the new grass had a workout last night and no flooding, all that hard work paid off. Sorry, I won't be able to pop over next week, Britain is not accepting folk from Canada! I'm ready for a big rain thunder storm, it's so dense with smoke out there it looks like it's 11pm. Spending no time outside!

    Lav...hope you don't mind I volunteered our services to Cyn. LOL Glad you had a good time with your friends yesterday, it's certainly one of the things I've missed during Covid. Our vaccine rates are pretty good here too, don't know why Britain won't let us in. LOL The Provincial Government in it's wisdom has announced that as of Aug 16th any and all restrictions are gone. No masks anywhere including kids going back to school in the fall, no quarantines if you test positive for Covid, no contact tracing, nothing. They have decided to now treat it as an endemic like the seasonal flu. Of course they announced this on the same day they announced a rise in covid cases and positivity rates. I believe our Premiere wants to tout his horn about being the first for everything. OMG

    Det...so good to hear from you, I know how time can get away from you. Congrats on the 4 shoots and you should be well chuffed! Glad to hear you're also making time for yourself.

    Had an incident at work yesterday with a homeless man who hung around the community centre all day, mostly sleeping on the cement by our little free library. He showed up around 9:30am and made himself comfortable surrounding himself with his backpack, several shaving kit size bags, lots of books, etc. He then disappeared around 2pm and left all his stuff there. We had our Farm Stand at 3pm and I got several people coming to the door to tell me about all the stuff. Upon further investigation there was also drug paraphernalia, what looked like lock picks, several sets of keys and more. Did not open any of the kits or the backpack. Phoned the police for advice and they figured they should come pick it up. So by the time I got home, late last night, I was exhausted and just settled in with my book. No sign of him today looking for his stuff, probably doesn't remember where he left everything. LOL So I left early today to have some me time.

    Shout out to Sam, Pauly and Pi. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 25th July

    Greetings friends,

    Watching the news on TV, there’s tornadoes in the surrounding counties, oh boy. All we had was a light shower earlier & now the sun is trying to reappear. Can’t wait for summer to be over, honestly.

    Det, congrats on all the new work coming in, yay!! We figured you’ve been busy.
    Glad everything is going well for you. YB just harvested a ton of garlic, OMG! Now we need to find takers for it because there’s no way we can use it all, haha!!

    Mick, I have more weather coming this way & will send it over to you since I can’t send it to Det
    Glad your yard is flood-less too!!!

    PQ, we really could be good helpers for our friend TG (Cyn). I really wish we could help!
    I don’t think any of our governments are making real solid decisions right now. They seem to be bending to all the crying & whining of people. Decisions should be made in accordance with evidence based science only. I will continue to so what feels safe for me.
    I pity the homeless but so many of them are drug addicted & will steal to afford their addictions. Calling the police is one thing but finding somewhere to put them is another. Not enough shelters open to handle all of them. Sad, really. Glad to hear you are looking out for yourself

    Hello to Pauly, Cyn, Sam & Pie.

    Have a decent night all!

    Thanks so much for thinking of me, I am so grateful,that you are all "there"... really so grateful.

    Det, congrats, I knew it would break open at some point -- you so deserve it! Mick, welcome back home, and hoping that the rains ease for you. Lav, the same thing, so sorry you are having this difficuktnweather over and over. PPQ, thanks for all the good wishes. Bags done and distributed, glad that's over with! So sorry to hear about the homeless person... I agree with Lav, there seems to be no thoughts about any solutions... hope your foot is getting better. Pauly, hello - hope all is well.

    Hello to any dropping by... I'll be "underground" over this weekend, so wishing you all well now...

    Re: 25th July

    Hiya all how are we today then?all good hopefully..finally stopped raining thank goodness.

    Hiya teegee How are you today?hope everything is getting a little better for you.take care over the weekend

    Hiya ppqp how are you Then? Hope all is well. So you had a homeless guy with lockpicks etc?don't get me wrong, I've done time in a couple of the old type toughest nicks in Britain,but sometimes you have to question whats going on.the trouble is the drugs is a means of escape as is booze.especially if you're homeless. Trouble is it is acquisitive crime..to fund it prostitution burglary robbery theft ...so address the homeless issues on the proviso they want help..then the escapism won't be needed in theory..yet we weren't homeless but still drank ..for what reason..anyways that's all a bit heavy..take it easy

    Hiya pauly ..hope all is well with you

    Lav keep your weather thanks ��you know what..I never read your post as iam on my phone and yet you are singing from the same hymn sheet.yes the garden isn't flooding either.have a good weekend
    Right folks I'll try and find some jokes

    This morning was surreal.... I was following an ambulance into town in my car when I noticed a small metal box sitting on the rear bumper. When the ambulance turned right the box flew off and landed on the side of the road against the kerb. Call me the curious sort or just the Good Samaritan that I am, I pulled over and retrieved it. When I opened the box there was a human toe packed in ice inside it. Ooops, that’s a serious mistake I thought, so unsure if the ambulance was going to our local hospital I called the hospital and explained what I had found. The lady on the other end of the phone said “Yes, the ambulance has just arrived, minus the box”. I gave her my location and asked if they were going to send another ambulance to collect it?
    The lady replied, “No, we’ll just send a toe truck.”


    Whoever came up with the saying that the grass is always greener on the other side was talking crap.
    You've only got to turn a piece of turf over to see that.

    Essex Police want to interview a man wearing stockings, suspenders and high heels. The Chief Constable has said they must wear their normal uniforms.

    Making jokes about a Dwarf with learning difficulties isn't big and it isn't clever.

    A new study has surprisingly revealed that the English city with the highest-earners under the age of 30 is not London, but Liverpool.

    Fck me, the value of copper wiring and car radios must have gone up recently.


    I like my kids like I like my flour.

    Self-raising.

    I used to date a girl called Polly Graph. It didn't work out though, She was constantly accusing me of lying.

    After severe criticism over her lack of consultation with respect to her new crime bill, Home Secretary Priti Patel was today rumoured to be meeting a senior representative of the Taliban, in a Heathrow Hotel, to consider their input on sentencing tariffs.

    Our new Irish priest is surprisingly open and laid back. In confession on Sunday I said, "Forgive me Father, for I have sinned."

    He replied, "Pfft... Join the fecking club son."

    All the drug taking has ruined the Olympics as a spectacle for me.
    I'm so stoned I can hardly focus on the TV.

    Re: 25th July

    Good evening folks,

    Pauly, none of us wear a genius hat but we do know being in close quarters with unvaccinated people is simply dangerous. The news is reporting this Delta variant is as transmissible chicken pox & the common cold & causes more severe symptoms. We don’t want any of that so we will mask up! Keep yourself safe!!

    Cyn, I know this weekend is going to be busy getting the festival started up. Wishing you all the best, your hard work will pay off. Take care of yourself as well

    Mick, turns out there were 7 tornadoes in SE PA yesterday, none of them close to my location. In Bucks County, just north of Philadelphia there was an EF3 tornado that ripped the roof off a large car dealership & made a huge mess. Only a few minor injuries, thank goodness. This is why I watch the weather so closely, you never know what’s coming your way. Glad the rain stopped for you, I have nothing to send you today, haha!!

    PQ, I hope your day was good & the weekend is perfectly relaxing

    Det, I know you’re working so have fun & make lots of $$.

    Hello to Sam & Pie - check in please.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 25th July

    hiya all ...how are we today then? hope all is well ...raining here today,so glad you mentioned it stopping yesterday lav . can you mention sunshine? see if you can magic some back .glad the tornadoes were nowhere near you .As you say that delta variant is a real spreder it spreads they reckon at least 60%quicker than the original one .It is still spreading and increasing daily here ,but the vaccine has certainly helped to reduce the hospital admissions and mortality rate but it isnt a cure all despite all the politicians saying its over ..is it heck .I was out yesterday and the number of folk in masks has decreased dramatically.Im staying masked up until I feel its safe .

    hiya pauly ...stay safe wear a mask ..how are you then?with regards to the homeless,we have the same here ,loads on the street ,but you can never be sure ..I saw a girl on the street ...begging in a doorway ..a real homeless person told me where she lived ,she has a flat not far from the town centre ,and the tummy is a cushion ,getting the sympathy vote ,its a pretty lucrative business nowadays ..there is even a group that have a monopoly on certain sites and they change round every couple of hours ..outside Aldi ,then Asda ,then the bakers then the market so you cant really say who is homeless .its a real money spinner ..if they dont get money then people buy them food and drink .

    hiya everyone else hope you are ok,and having a good weekend....

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...lots of upset people in Alberta with calls for resignations of the powers that be. I'll be sticking to my own rules and will continue to be vigilant. Glad you were able to dodge the tornados, crazy weather!! It was a quiet day yesterday and decided to pack it in at noon to start my long weekend. We are under a heat advisory so will be sticking close to home. (Pun intended! LOL)

    TG...good luck this weekend, I'm sure it'll all go as planned. Foot is almost back to normal, no swelling just a little bit of tightness still.

    Mick...my first thought when I see homeless people is "There but for the grace of god I go" I can't believe people would actually fake a business out of it. We're expecting rain by the end of the week, can hardly wait for it.

    Pauly...I have seen the homeless in Vegas and I'm sure it's gotten a lot worse since I was there last. I'll be using my mask for some time to come.

    Shout out to Det, Sam and Pi. Hope everyone has a great day....PPQP
