    20th Nov Cambrai Day

    mae all how are we doing today then?hope all is well.Pouring down with rain ,but its bordering on snow!!!its too wet for it to lie.Def not a day for metal detecting .Successfully locked the rabbits up last night ...25 years in the prison service ...and 2 rabbits beat me!!!hope everyone is doing good today.Julie made Scotch Eggs yesterday...she uses turkey breast mince instead of sausage meat..in the ones she makes ,on the weightwatchers points system they cost 2 points ...as opposed to the shop bought ones ranging between 9 and 12..same with lemon cake ,she uses chick peas instead of flour ...they taste lovely.Big issue over here is the bird flu,its causing a shortage in the supply of eggs ..havent started on Hogwarts yet ,I want to run all my locos etc first before I take parts of the layout away.both rabbits doing well,she is being a real nightmare .I think she is in nesting mode .
    have a great weekend everyone.



    There was this American tourist on a trip around Ireland.

    When the tour arrives at Belfast he decides to go for a stroll with the aim of taking in this new culture.
    After he's been walking for a while someone rushes up behind him and sticks a gun in his back.

    The person says to the tourist "What are you, Catholic or Protestant?"

    The American thinks to himself "Great - if I say I'm Catholic, this guy is sure to be Protestant.
    If I say I'm Protestant, he's sure to be Catholic. Either way I'm dead."

    Then he has a brain wave and says to the Guy, "actually I'm Jewish".
    This, he thinks to himself will surely keep him safe.

    The guy behind him then replies "Gee, I must be the luckiest Arab in Ireland."


    Why must I prove that I am me to pay my bills over the phone? Do strangers
    call to pay my bills? And, if they do, why don't you let them?

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    Good evening folks,

    Still cold but dry here so not complaining. I can feel the heat from the wood stove here in my work shop so itís all good
    One of my chickens dropped dead today, wasnít quite 2 years old yet so Iím not sure what happened. They usually do fine in the cold weather, donít know. The rest of them look OK, who knows?

    Mick, when did you ever think 2 rabbits would give you the run for your money? Haha!!! They must be your spirit animal or something
    Staying in & getting work done during this cold snap is fine by me. Iím sure youíre making the most of your time as well. I havenít eaten sausage in years & I also use ground turkey in place of beef or pork in all my old recipes, works just fine. We need to keep our arteries unclogged, right? Have fun with teh trains, youíll get something worked out.

    Cyn, hello to you where I know yuoíre having some cold weather too!

    PQ, youíre always having cold weather, am I right? Haha. Hope your weekend has been a good one.

    Slo, staying in the warmth this weekend I hope? Take it easy & be kind to your knees, please.

    Hello to the rest & wishing a nice night for all!

    Lav

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    Good morning! It is cold here; the furnace is running constantly.

    Yes, pork breakfast sausage is incredibly fatty -shocking when you read the label, and compare it to turkey sausage.

    Every one of those jokes had me in stitches! So true about the mailbox. Although I think Iíd still look like a mental patient in this condo neighborhood if I walked down the street to my mailbox in my robe.

    Iíve gotten in a weird pattern the last couple nights of going to sleep exhausted by 9:00 pm, then waking up at 4-5 am. But thatís exactly what I need to do when I go to babysit Huxley tomorrow, so all good.

    I can tell my broken knee is getting better now at the 6-week mark, and I was able to go shopping yesterday at this sell-off of clothes that were used by the distributors as demos for home parties. I got some good deals!

    No, Lav; I donít have a trusted car mechanic. I was advised by my financial advisor to look for a new car as itís getting to the age when it will need more repairs. But I like my car! Iíve had it for six years, and I like to get at least seven years out of my cars. Iím at 105,000 miles, so thereís still life left in it. Plus, this really doesnít seem like a good year for buying used or new cars!

    PQ, glad the part-timers are there now so you didnít have to spend your whole Saturday at the craft fair at work.

    I hope @paulywogg is doing ok after that terrible blow in her life when her husband died.

    Wishing you all a productive week!

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    Good evening friends,

    20 degrees this morning, chilly!!!! A warm up is on the way though so that’s good.
    Of course the outside water bowls were all frozen solid, haha. Trying to get some work done while fighting off a 6 week old terrorist with sharp teeth & claws Lol

    Slo, I absolutely refuse to go to bed before 11 pm for the same reason. I’m still all screwed up after so many years of shift work it’s not funny.
    Glad your knee is improved, 6 weeks can seem like such a long time when you’re in pain & immobile. I put my foot down & said no new car right now. I like my car & don’t want to be manipulated out of it for someone else’s desire, geez. I’ll think about it maybe in the spring but not now.

    Daisy wants to say a few things: #GB43//…………………………………. Usd&//?/
    She keeps walking across my iPad keyboard haha!!!

    Mick, in the almost 20 years that we’ve lived here 3 of my neighbor’s houses have been broken into in the middle of the day. Living out in the sticks is nice but scary sometimes. 2 of those break-ins were directly across the road from me & I didn’t see or hear a thing. My dogs have always been good about making noise so I guess they have protected my house. Sorry about your neighbor’s van.
    My chickens were all fine today, no one looking sick out there. Did you hear Buffalo, NY had over 80” of snow??? Crazy!!
    I liked the oinkment joke, haha!!

    Hello to Cyn, PQ & everyone.
    Back to work for me, Have a nice night all!

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    Mae all - sorry to miss yesterday, I was getting info out to many people, and my right shoulder and hand seemed very fatigued... I saw a chiro today and it helped some, but I think typing on this phone is not a great idea. I also moved my computer so that can stand while I work... I hope it all helps.

    Lav, maybe I need a kitten to type for me! I loved her message... not sure what it means, but very charming. Good luck sewing with her around! Sorry about the one chicken, but glad the others seem to okay... Hang in there - not too much longer before your ďshowĒ.

    SLO - glad to hear your knee seems to be better!! You deserve good news after 6 weeks. And that is quite a schedule you have going... best of luck with that!

    Mick, loved all the jokes. And sorry about the neighborís stolen van... but you seem to have thought everything out quite completely! Send ďsafeĒ waves of energy. Goodness your travel plans sound amazing. It will be interesting to compare London to the city it was when you were there before! Enjoy your train work and ideas...

    PPQ, hereís hoping that the weekend didnít wear you out totally... breathe! Get warm! Have some hot cocoa!

    Well thatís me tonight... wishing all well -

    My friend thinks he is smart. He told me an onion is the only food that makes you cry, so I threw a coconut at his face.

    Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really angry. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!" The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale. Bob has been missing since Friday.

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for MIA. The craft sale was a huge success so it was worth all the work. Saturday night I started feeling crummy and Sunday I swear I had the same thing that hit Mic. Didn't do anything but stay in bed. Although I was feeling better yesterday I didn't go to work. And glad I didn't. Every time I went to do something I would start feeling crummy again. Feeling much better today and went into work. I'm glad I did as I was swamped. Just had a quick read through and it looks like everyone is doing ok. I will catch up and post proper tomorrow.

    Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    Good evening friends,

    Had a busy day starting with a visit with my NP. I was successful in talking her into cutting the dosage of one of my bP meds in half. I hope that helps decrease the foot & leg swelling it’s been causing. Can’t walk without a lot of pain & that’s BS. If I do OK on the half dose & my BP doesn’t shoot up again I will eventually discontinue it all together. I have a handful of lab slips so I need to make an appt. For bloodwork soon. Then I had torun to the pharmacy to get my new med. Then we both went to Walmart - just because, Lol. Then I got a call from my bank. That someone in Houston, TX attempted to use my debit card number to buy $207 worth of merchandise at a Target store, UGH!! So my account is shut down for a few days while they issue me a new debit card. Why are people such a$$holes??
    Daisy is slicing up my hands & feet so bad she’s upstairs & I’m hiding downstairs in my shop right now. Teething cats are terrorists. She is super cute though.

    Cyn, sorry about the hand & shoulder discomfort. I end up with aching back muscles from hanging over my sewing machine, ugh. I can’t do a whole lot of phone typing either, the iPad is the way to go for me.
    I hope she’s wrong but the NP wants me to have a whole blood workup for RA since my mom had it so bad & the foot & leg swelling was on eof her first symptoms. I’ve had the workup 2X before & it was negative so we’ll see. Hope you are more comfortable today

    Mick, installing more security in our homes is important these days. Glad you found a good deal on Amazon.
    Congrats for watching 7 minutes of Trump anything without losing your mind LOL I have no tolerance for that fool. I’ll see if Daisy wants to write another message tomorrow

    PQ, hope your day was good!

    Slo, hope you had a good day babysitting!!

    Re: 20th Nov Cambrai Day

    Mae all -

    Lav, good luck with the BP meds... congrats for seeing the doc, And then all that shopping... Iím worn out just reading about all you did... then the debit card fiasco! Sheesh... thatís terrible, whatís a nuisance. I hope your new card comes super-fast. And being tested for RA? Iím am sending vibes to protect you... you have such a different diet than I bet your mother had... youíve worked so hard on being healthy... I hope the tests are negative again...

    Mick, so glad you got the deals that you wanted at a good price! And wonderful that Julie is into the Hogwarts theme as well... You two stay well in all that cold!

    PPQ, I figured you were trying to get caught up on everything after the craft show... take it as slow as you can, given the holidays...

    My shoulder, arm, and now wrist are feeling weak, so Iíll just do this short post... I think my body is telling me to take a break from analytical, pressured thinking (left brain runs the right hemisphere...) so I will try to Chill out and meditate more... weíll see how that goes, LOL.

    Hello to all dropping by... May we be well...
