    Re: 7th Nov

    hiya all..how are we today then? hope everyone is well.My arm feels like lead this morning ,but apart from that ok.Tomorrow car goes into garage,I have a funny feeling its going to be bad news day .It is making a sound what I would call a piston slapping or tapping noise ,which could at the max mean a new engine .If thats the case then we are talking a good bitof money..about 1500 dollars ..so need to review the options .The intention is next year to get a small car that we can tow behind the van ,at the same time keeping Julies and sacking mine .we shal lsee .

    hiya Techie ,hows you mate? hope all is well with you buddy ..nice to see you..take care .

    hiya Lav ,how are you today then? Sorry to hear about the person you know with colon cancer ..its a horrible thing .Im not being critical ,but in 12 months they found a way to halt the spread of covid ,and yet all the research into cancer and they havent found a cure or a stayer yet? that's simplification at its best and me being ignorant ,but is there no breakthrough .?
    Talking about the covid booster ,go for it ..when I went yesterday the guy who was doing it was laughing his head off ..he went through his little speech and said I need one of your arms ..I said just whack it into that one mate ..he burst out laughing .Im left handed and guess where I got both jabs? yep left arm .take care and have a good day .

    hiya ppqp. ..how's you then? Hope you are feeling better .I understand about your son ,but I think maybes he should have at least given you an explanation? It sounds like work is just going from pillar to post ATM, keep your head down ..as for rain ..you can have as much as you want !!!

    hiya teegee ,how are you doing today then? hope all is well with you today? are things settling down a little for you? yes that park is brilliant ...the thing is ,once you are in the van it is different ...you can be anywhere and it wouldn't matter if that makes sense..take care .


    hello all those who aren't here ,hope you are well stay strong and positive ..

    I got into a taxi and told the driver to take me to a place fifty miles away.

    When we arrived, I got him to sit for an hour with the engine running, then told him to take me home.
    When we got back he asked, 'What was the purpose of that journey?'

    I replied, 'It was just cheaper than sitting in the house with the heating on.'

    My girlfriend and I happily ran hand-in-hand into a church last night and said to the reverend.

    "Marry us."

    He laughed. "Have you both thought this through?"

    I said, "Yes, we think you're so sexy."

    BREAKING NEWS:

    THREE CHEERS for Clive Lee, the brilliant engineer who invented hip replacement who dies aged 82.

    HIP HIP...

    I love the way my nine year old son is preparing for adulthood and it's pitfalls. He spent all his money on a dolls house and gave it his little girlfriend next door saying,

    "Here you might as well have a house now instead of taking one off me in twenty years. "

    Re: 7th Nov

    Mae all -

    Good to hear what's going on with with folks...

    Ah Mick, the truth comes out - left-handed! Hope the news wasn't too terrible about the car... sounds like you have a plan.

    PQ, sorry things are chaotic at work and stressful... they owe you guys some order and leadership! I hope all works out with your kid...

    Lav, glad you had a good outing... but such sad news for that person. I also have heard that sodas and junk are playing a role in a lot of increased cancers, especially in younger people... have you heard of theAcid-Watcher's diet. A. NYC Ear, nose and throats doc, who has researched all the effects from citric acid being added to our food and drinks... creates inflammation and weakens the immune system... fascinating...

    Pauly, what's up - how is the LV weather now? Are you hunkered down, or able to go out? Busy Det, hoping all is well.
    Hello to Techie and all others dropping by... sending light...

    Re: 7th Nov

    Good evening kids

    63 degrees today but I know the cold &wet weather is on the way. We have tons of firewood & a mostly full propane tank buried in the yard for the heating system so we will be fine. I just don’t like to see the browning of everything, bare trees, no flowers blooming, etc.

    Mick, guess what? I’m left handed too although I’ve used my right hand more since I hurt myself handling a German shepherd 30+ years ago.
    I went to the pharmacy today to see about the boosters & was told to make an appointment. So we both have appointments Monday morning to get it done.
    Sorry about your car, maybe it’s not as serious as you think. Buying new cars right now is not easy due to the pandemic shortages yet YB is trying to talk me into buying another so he can use mine to transport Amish folks instead of using his truck on some trips. We shall see about that haha!!!

    Cyn, yeah I feel sorry for my friend’s daughter. I just don’t know what to think or say.
    I have not heard about the Acid-Watcher’s diet - I’ll look it up. I have made a major effort to stay away from processed foods of any kind while following the bone health program. Sometimes you just don’t have the time or the energy to cook everything from scratch though, it’s hard.
    I signed the contract for the craft fair today & paid my admission fee. Now i have to figure out what to take.

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie. Check in when you can folks.
    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Yet another quiet day at work. The prog coord was in and we actually collaborated on some website updates and changes to our Restrictions Exemption Program. Is was really nice to work with her as a peer. We've come along way. LOL

    Mick...if it's not one thing it's another right? Geeze. Just have a talk with the car and tell it you've got plans for next year so hang in there. I can see a lot of my ex in my son. It's like the rules are made for everyone else. Suffice it to say, if you don't pay your taxes your going to have an issue.

    TG...I think I'm surviving this latest hurry up and wait stage knowing that the end is near. I'm just hoping that he will show some leadership and transparency for the staff. Rest assured I'll be letting the board know if that's not the case.

    Lav...we dodged the latest bad weather, it went north and east of us. Numerous storm warnings everywhere but here. LOL It doesn't seem to make any difference how long it's been since seeing a friend, it's like it was yesterday. Sorry to hear about the news. So the decision is made for the Dec fair and I'm sure you'll be busy once again adding to your stock.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Window fitter has been ...changed one of the windows...(saves cleaning them!) Car is in the garage ...waiting the kerching phone call...Julie is away on a spending spree with Amy tomorrow. Much as I would love to go ,my arm is that sore it cant reach into my pocket. Oh dear too bad so sad ...not a bad day here though it looks like rain on the way.

    hiya ppqp...so the prog co-ord has made it to your chrimbo list? go for it .Yes car is in garage ...I talked to it ...but not sure it understands Scots ..though it did flinch when I mentioned bloody scrapyard ..hope you have a good day .

    hiya left handed Lav, how's you then? My mum was left handed too ..but when she was at they used to whack left handed kids across the knuckles to make them write with right hand ..They classed left handers as the devils children.

    I couldnt resist this ...your post " I’ve used my right hand more since I hurt myself handling a German shepherd 30+ years ago." did he have a dog???? so yb wants you to get a noo car?so he can have yours ? has he tried ironing snow???methinks more chance of ....good luck on the sale ..

    MAE ALL...

    Watched all the services nation wide. They were absolutely great. The ex-boss is still haunting me with issues of the upcoming AGM that weren't handled by him. So I'm putting in for overtime today. I have to keep reminding myself that it's not Saturday!

    Mick...I wonder how long you can use your sore arm as an excuse. LOL Didn't realize you were having a window replaced but glad it's dealt with and I'm surprised you didn't clean it first. Not quite the chrimbo list but I think the prog coord realizes she needs to be part of the team since her "protector" is no longer available. I just want everyone to work together to make our community association what it once was.

    Waves to all...have a great day...PPQP

    Re: 7th Nov

    Evening greetings everyone,

    Yep I’m in my shop still stitching up lace ornaments. I have so many designs I’ve collected over the years so I can make a lot & people usually like them.
    The rain is due to arrive tomorrow followed by cold air, ho hum.

    PQ, glad you escaped the storm, phew! It’s too early for that nonsense & you have other things to do, haha!
    I take it your son doesn’t do well with grown up activities. Some kids just seem to take longer to get the plot than others, who knows? Not paying taxes could be a serious lesson. So you & the program coordinator have made at least temporary peace? Nice.

    Mick, keeping my fingers crossed for you & your car
    Getting new windows installed juts before winter gets here is smart. We’ve been through that in several our our older houses., saved tons on heating costs.
    We have had 2 German shepherds over the years but the last one was a crazy girl. Handling her on a leash was difficult & I got my hand twisted badly. I still had to go to work so I switched hands on a moment’s notice. My handwriting is still unreadable even to me haha!
    About he car thing here - I’m not so sure I’m going to let him push me into this unless he comes up with a lot of cash for a downpayment on a new one. I am tired of making payments if you know whaat i mean haha!!

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well.

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 7th Nov

    Haya ABerooooos near and far! another blazing quick check-in from the madman.

    Lav, so glad you are doing another craft fair...wish I was there.

    shouts to Mick, Pauly, PPQ, Treegirl and anyone I've simply missed in my craziness here... whew!

    only 1 shoot this weekend so I should be able to actually do something fun or relaxing. Hopefully will get to the temple on Sunday
    for a formal meditation which is always grand.

    Pauly, yeah how's my old crazy town doing these days?

    gumbo is simmering along... yeah, always cooking can be tough sometimes but somehow I manage to almost always pull off something. Even if it was the dreadful premade meatballs
    I got from the Asian grocer last week trying to save time. They were like balls of totally flavorless uni-textured balogne or something... weird. oh well.

    wishing all the very best m'loves!

    Re: 7th Nov

    Mae all,

    Det, nice to see you - hope you get to your meditation this weekend. Kudos for cooking so much... I seem to have lost either the ability or the interest. Enjoy!

    Mick, glad for the window, crossing fingers for the car... and let's hope the shopping spree is a success... are there things out there to buy?

    Lav, another lefty! Amazing that you could switch hands so easily... your handwriting couldn't be any worse than most docs, I'm thinking ��. Wonderful news for the craft fair... I know you'll have happy customers.

    PQ, sounds like things are stable at work, hope that continues. And good luck with the weather... or is it Lav, or up here in CT that we need luck? I should watch the weather sometime...

    Pauly, what's up girl!?

    Well, I have been having lots of anxiety lately... woke up 3 times in the night last night, the last time I was having a dream where someone was stalking me, and I couldn't scream for help... I woke myself up out the dream by making some strange noise... it took awhile to shake that one off. Hoping for a better sleep tonight.. or at least no bad dreams. I had even done a nice meditation the 2nd time I woke up, so I'm not sure what's going on... hopefully my mind is working out whatever it is....

    Wishing all peace and light ...

    Re: 7th Nov

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well L2 stop it is absolutely pouring down with rain here methinks a good move on not going to the market. Just phoned Julie she's enjoying it however it is really expensive apparently so that's definitely would not have suited my pocket! Got the car back from the garage last night, a couple of jobs need doing on it however some parts he needs to order so hopefully it will be in in and fixed next week properly

    Hiya det how are you then my friend? Something fun or relaxing question mark anything in mind? Whatever it is enjoy.

    Hiya teegee and how are you today then? Yes yes there are plenty of things to buy at the Christmas Market, but really it's a case of do we need anything question mark and the answer that one really is no no. You need to stop eating cheese at night! That's what's giving you the nightmares. It's kind of like the old joke dreamt you were eating marshmallows woke up to find you had eaten your pillow! Hope it all works out take care and have a great weekend

    Hiya lav and how are you today then? What have the Lace ornaments done to you that's so bad that you need to stitch them up haha ok ok ok another rubbish joke! Yes my handwriting is not so clever either I must be honest full stop apparently I used to have really nice handwriting, but when I had my stroke I had to sort of teach myself to write again and it's never been the same not to worry re I can understand it it at a push haha. If you need some rain today don't be afraid to ask we certainly have got plenty of it! Hope you have a good weekend

    Hiya ppqp and how are you today then? Saw the coordinator hasn't quite made it to the top of your Crimbo card list but heading in the right direction? You are probably right in what you say her Ally has gone on so it's now a one man band oh and by the way it isn't Saturday yet either!

    Big shout out to everyone else whenever you are whatever you're doing stay safe and sober and have a great weekend and
