Morning all :) I think that is most definitely and orchard Hannah. We had the most luscious plums and one of the peach tress is covered in peaches. Hoping to keep them from the birds long enough to get one. Also have an apple tree that is loaded. Pistachio trees are covered with nut YEAH, My garden is doing okay but am battling some sort of little beast that is stealing tomatoes and the birds are bad this year. It has started to rain a bit. YIPPPPPIE emoticon We need it so bad.
Still have not made any beg decisions about this neck. Waiting to get more input from the drs have an appointment with the neurologist on the 23

emoticon every time I try to answer this post my boss walks in!

Arlene thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers - hoping all turns out GOOD what ever route you take, please keep us posted re looming surgery. emoticon

I'm not even to try and talk about our freaking politicians be course they not! don't even have a proper education, only been educated on how to enrich themselves!

On a happier note, got my rain water tanks - 7500lt in total. Next job is Solar for the geyser - new hot water cylinder is in and ready for the panel, just waiting for the quotes to come in. So broke emoticon but happy! Spend most of the day preparing my one & only flowerbed, only planting waterwise & indigenous. More Fruit trees coming to plant this weekend, going to put in quince and lime as they do very well here.

I hope you get some rain as well Arlene, nothing grows when there's none!!

I hate the career politicians as well and those that go into it straight out of college. They never have any experience in the real world and they think they have the right to dictate to the rest of us how to live.

Peace and long life - Jules

Birds can be so destructive. They were trashing our fruit trees earlier in the season. I think they found better pickings for the moment in that department.
I like the house wives idea for sure. Even if they limited the time they could serve would be helpful . These people make a career out of screwing every one :/
I wish we would get a bit of ran. Hoping we get a decent monsoon season

Sorry to hear about your health problems Arlene. It sounds like whatever the doctor wants is going to cost a lot of money and take a lot of time to fix.

It's been cold and crappy here, at least we've had some rain so it's kept our water tanks filled.

I don't have a problem with the rabbits here, I do, however, have a problem with the parrots eating my tree fern fronds. The poor thing looks like a skeleton at the moment, it looks like I'll have to cover it, it seems that I'm covering just about everything these days.

I think all of our governments need a slap upside the head. The bullsh!t they come out with and expect us to believe is ridiculous. What we need are a few housewives to do the budget and teach these bozos to only spend what they have.

Sorry about your co worker HUGS
It has been so hot and miserable here. And it is only June :/ No rain. We had to fence the fence because the quail and bunnies have been eating out veggies to the ground, I see some new growth so hoping it is working.
This new doc thinks I need to have 2 disc's removed from my neck and to have it fused in 2 places. Not sure how I feel about that. I just know I am down to one client so money is tight and I do not feel like taking on anymore work. :/
Hannah I have always had a good active healthy outlook on life.I know wish I had lived it up a bit LOL
Jules the people that run our country are a nightmare too... just keeps getting worse and worse for those of us in the low middle. emoticon

Great news about your back Arlene, holding thumbs his treatment will give you some relieve of the constant pain. Now if only we knew how our bodies was going to let us down in "old" age maybe we would have taken better care??? maybe not...I don't think I would have ever been able to take it "easy".
I have also found a brilliant knee surgeon, always amazes me how people are meant to cross one's path. Met this young girl from who I bought a purse from on our local buy & swop page and she just had her 3rd knee op, last one done by this surgeon who had to sort the mess out.
emoticon not looking forward to funeral of co worker today....feeling sad & miserable....and tomorrow we vote emoticon emoticon need your prayers!

Arlene try the Adblock (the link is below) I installed it and it made a big difference. All you have to do is pick whatever you are using i.e. IE, Chrome etc and then download it.

www.adblockplus.org/en/chrome

I must admit I was expecting the cortisone shot to hurt, but all I felt was some pressure. I have been using my personal ultrasound machine, but I keep forgetting to do it ..... talk about lazy!!

Did you know that lasers can help with the pain? I bought a laser pointer from Amazon that has a strong enough laser to be able to penetrate down to @2cm. If you can get someone to point it and hold it on to your back you might find some relief. The link for the laser is below as well.

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0050PNOUS

ef=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


My brother uses light therapy for mouth ulcers and finds it really works, if the pointer doesn't work for you, you can always play with the kittens with it!!

I do not like all the pop up adds I get on SP I understand they have to try to keep the site free .However I don't really care how Uncle Ben cooks his rice. LOL
I have only ever had those steroid shots in my back. I must say it was not a great experience. Jimmy had one in his hip and he was all good . Guess it is person related.
I almost always wake up around that time .I hate it. That must be when my sleeping pill wears off. I take advil for my back but it always hurts. I will not take narcotics .I think I am just gonna have to get more used to sucking up the pain. All the discs are wearing out and am getting bone spurs and pinched nerves YEAH!!! SIGH

I've got to go in for my last guided cortisone shot in my shoulder. This bursitis just won't go away. I've also wake every morning with major back pains, I've tried different pillows etc it always wakes me at @3.30am and I just have to get up and have a pain killer.

I'm not sure I'm liking this new Sparks format, it seems really pale and it stretches all across the page, I suppose I'll just have to put up with it as I'm sure they aren't going to change for me.

I had an appointment with the back surgeon today. He was really nice and positive, He wants me to have another MRI and to try some pt and stretching to see if that will loosen the muscles. He thinks I will not need anything in my lower spine surgically corrected for 10 years, He wants more test to determine neck but sounded pretty positive the I am all good just have a whole lot of worn out parts LOL

I wish my aches and pains would lessen. I am starting to feel like a whiny cry baby. I believe it is all just arthritis and things wearing out. It is so frustrating. I am going to listen to a orthopedic guys mouth move on Wednesday, I can not say I am really a fan of any type of back surgery.. I also do not want to earn a depend because I ignored something.

Same here Arlene, I was having such extreme aches and pains along with the wonky feelings and hot flashes. I actually thought I might have been suffering from MS or something like that. A week or so on the patches and the pains have disappeared, I still get a few when I work to long and hard outside but that's to be expected.

I'm still eating my tomatoes, the plants have bit the dust but the produce is still living on, along with the eggplants and zucchini.

Way to go Hannah, that along with some manure and a bit of dirt should be the start of a beautiful veggie garden.

Bon Scott back then was just a young bloke, this was before AC~DC when he was in a group called the Valentines ........ boy was I young back then.

Hannah you must email me your new address, I have the latest Alborada CD to send you.

OMG Jules! you dated Bon Scott! WOW! of course that counts big time, this is emoticon LOL ok I have nothing that can out do that, my Dad was way to strict and with 3 older brothers who had to chaperone me to every social event - my "youth" was way to boring.


Discovered a pile of old wood on top of the garages & out buildings flat roofs, will definitely put it to good use to make raised beds out of. The biggest bonus was the "compost" on top of the roofs - rotten leaves & wood that hasn't been cleaned for donkeys years, super stuff! Luckily my garden man used his grey matter and showed it to me, we started a compost heap straight away-so thankful! big saving!

Be patient Hannah, you'll get your garden soon. Do the things around the house that really need doing and hold off paying for stuff that can wait. The garden beds can be done really cheaply using just wood and some weed mat then fill with either soil or as I do, mushroom compost, at least this way you'll be able to get some veggies in.

I've got nothing spectacular to tell about me, I did, many years ago, go out with Bon Scott the first singer of AC~DC does that count? I was a bit of a groupie in the day (not necessarily in the strictest term though) but I did go clubbing a lot and knew a lot of bands and singers. Now I'd probably drop dead after a long night out, don't you just hate getting old?

Jules you go girl, feeling very jealous I'm still lagging behind where my BIG ideas about my vegetable garden is concerned. Will get there! keep on telling myself one step at a time, so much do to in that yard and that old house is draining my purse - just got a quote for a veranda at the back, eish,(SA saying for wow) it's painful.

Wendy, I was born & bred on a farm in Natal, near the Mozambique border emoticon and can speak Zulu(black language) fluently. We moved to Cape Town in 1990 but I still miss my "homeland" .

Now how about something I don't know about you guys? time to tell ..... emoticon

Wendy I love to be outside. I cleared out what was left of the tomatoes, eggplants and zucchinis today. Forked over the raised beds, added some well rotted chicken manure and some dolomite, hopefully I'll be planting some Autumn/Winter veggies in a couple of days.

Arlene I went of my HRT last year but I just had to go back onto it again a couple of weeks ago. I had incredibly painful joints, was tired all the time and when I'd get a hot flash I'd feel like I was going to faint. The doctor put me on patches which are much safer than tablets the second time around. I'm now human again thank goodness

Peace and long life - Jules

Good morning everyone!

Arlene your in New Mexico, ok. I remembered you were somewhere that was warmer than here usually and pretty. Sorry to hear about your tomatoes. What else have you or will you be planting this season? We can't plant tomatoes here til mid may to early June. When all the danger of frost is gone.

Jules Good to hear you get to work outside longer. I love being outdoors in nature. Do you do a lot of Gardening? Hope you get some rain soon Jules!

Hannah were you born and raised in Cape Town? What a beautiful place. I hope to make it there someday. I have a lot of wanderlust! Have fun doing your planting this weekend. I am jealous. I really want to plant something outside!

Our house is passive solar so it stay at a nice temperature on its own once the sun comes up in the winter.We use wood to heat when it is cold. In the summer it gets a little warm so we run the fans and the A/C I used to be such a happy person before hot flashes hahahaha Jimmy actually likes it be cause he has always run a bit warmer and I used to whine about being cold.

My granddaughter still wants to be a vet. Her step mother said she is okay with being attacked and is happy it was not her little step siblings out there . She sounds like such a sweet little girl. I hope one day to know her much better. She lives so far away . I have not held her since she was an infant.

That is fantastic Arlene! hope she does not develop a phobia for our 4 legged friends - never the dog always the owners fault, so terrible that she had to suffer the idiots handiwork emoticon

Wendy well done for remembering! Yes I'm in sunny South Africa, right at the very tip-Cape Town. Best weather now, just perfect emoticon coldish early morning & at night, not too hot during the day, just right so one can spend the whole day in the garden. Exactly what I'm doing this weekend! planting all my plants that has come from the old place & been patiently waiting for me to finish unpacking emoticon .

We've been having an Indian Summer here for most of Autumn, which is nice when you are working outside, but we really need some rain to fill the water tanks and to top up the aquifers and creek. I suppose it won't be long 'till it's cold and then I'll be complaining.

Arlene I hate hot rooms, I keep the AC/heater on overnight to @65F during the Winter, mainly for Steven my brother, he suffers from COPD as well as left ventricular dysfunction, so he has trouble breathing when the temperature get too low. It is nice to have the house at a comfortable temperature during the colder months.

Peace and long life - Jules

Wendy same thing here. I am in NM .It was nice and warm. Yesterday morning it was 28* some of my tomato plants are not going to pull through even though we covered them :/ Grr. My body can't adjust to the crazy weather either. I am never sure how to dress. I am also a caregiver and some days have different clients. One guy has a super hot home the next one is freezing UGH!Today it was in the low 80's HOLY SMOKES Hope the weather evens off soon. for you :)
On a high note my grand daughter is doing great.She is going to see the Dr tomorrow and will have her stitches out. :) :) :) I am very happy about that

Glad to hear Arlene! emoticon emoticon

So how is the weather where you guys are? If I remember correctly Hannah is from Africa, Jules is Australia so I guess you guys are experiencing Autumn. And Arlene is on opposite side of the U.S then me somewhere in CA. Well, I am here in Pennsylvania and I am freezing!! It's supposed to be Spring here but I guess mother nature didn't get the message yet. Monday I did a little hike it was very nice out, mid to high 70's F (23-25 C). Now this morning went I went to work at the shelter. it was 23F ( -5 Celsius)! Now I don't mind so much the colder weather except my body can't take the back and forth temperatures. So I just made some coffee in hopes to warm up quickly

I've been tired all day today too Arlene. I was working outside all day (no rain)

I came in for a nap but was way too keyed up to lay down for more than 10 minutes, so I got up and made potato waffles with the leftover mashed spuds from last night

Like you I rarely get a cold and when I do it doesn't usually hang about for long ..... must be my robust chest emoticon emoticon

Hannah did I miss something, what happened to your knee?

No sooner than I mentioned rain and we have it and have had it for the last few days. Good news is we needed it, the tanks have gotten a much needed top up and I don't have to water the garden. On the down side, I can't plant my carrots, bok choi or purple sprouting broccoli until it stops raining.

Hi guys. It's been awhile. Hope all is well with you. My cockatiel and parakeet died so I just have the Peach front conure now, Even though it has been about a year since they have been gone. It's very different just having the one bird. I've always had several. But I decided not to get any others because I also have a dog and a cat. And with the three of them its a lot of work.

The goats are fat and sassy let the kidding begin LOL Chucky is doing better . I have gone back to letting him have his plain old seeds and got him a new toy. He seems a lot let stressed and his feathers are coming back in. I gave him Cheerios one day and he tore every feather out :( figured okay buddy you win.

Good Morning all you Bird Lovers!!!

What's up? How are your birds? All good on your side? what is the weather like?

Very windy here not too hot but dusty and dry. Birdies kept inside, waiting for a nice day to recharge their Vit.D levels.

Much love xxx

emoticon Hi Danlin. I clean my birds cages once a week but replace the newspaper at the bottom of the cages whenever it's needed. A fantastic cleaner is water with vinegar(about 125ml to a litre of water, you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil to it, pour into a handy spray bottle. This is great to spray the whole cage and perches & ladders, it will soften the poop and easily wipe of, or just spray on and leave it to dry. This is totally harmless to the birds and should combat mites too. I spray everything with this, rope ladders and all toys, bowls should be properly cleaned with hot water and soap - just make sure you rinse well.

Hope this helps emoticon

hello everyone, Hoping someone could help me out. How often should I be cleaning my parakeet's cage and what is the best thing to use to clean the cage with? I want to make sure I get all the poop out of the cage and disinfect really good and clean her food and water dishes well, as well as her toys

hugs
Danlin


No body ever promised us a tomorrow.

Hate is a very strong word.

Think before we use it

Hugs DanLin

Have a wonderful day!!!!

You will soon get mobility back when you start loosing Patsy. The couple of winter kilos I gained has an impact on my knees too, so happy I discovered those Transact patches for the pain. I used them over the winter and they really do help together with my Eucalyptus and Peppermint essential oils, brilliant to keep the inflammation under control. So happy it's summer and I can walk without pain, suppose it's still bad for you because you guys get summer rain...not good for the aches and pains.
Are you still working Patsy or have you retired now?

What is it with us women and emotional eating, don't worry my weight also went up this year!
Must say not as bad as in the past, so I do have more control but still not TOTAL control...hehehe, I shall put all the blame on the crap going on in out country. Seriously, it's no joke, "jy moet hare op jou tande he" it's hard. But as always we bounce back, dust ourselves off and get back on track. So my friend, we will do this together!

Are you following a diet plan? logging your food on Spark? and have you got your exercise plan?

I'll go 1st - Food intake for my is fine, it's the sweet stuff that needs to go. Exercise has pick up again with summer, got into the pool last night for the first time :) and I'm planning to go to Pilates & Yoga classes from the 15th Dec(on leave then) for a month.
