SORRY SHERRY, NUT THEY WERE ALL TRUE THIS WEEK, SO EATING CHICKEN WINGS CAN MAKE KIDS MORE AGGRESSIVE IF US RESEARCHERS ARE TO BE BELIEVED. I KNOW, IT BEGGARS BELIEF AND PEOPLE GET PAID TO RESEARCH THESE THINGS. AS FOR THE 62 YEAR OLD WOMAN GETTING MARRIED TO A 9 YEAR OLD BOY; WHAT ON EARTH WAS SHE THINKING?

YES, WE DO HAVE SOME QUAINT RECIPES, SUCH AS BLACK PUDDING WHICH IS PRIMARILY PIGS BLOOD AND ALSO QUITE DELICIOUS. WE ALSO EAR BOTH LAMB'S AND BEEF HEART, WHICH NEEDS TO BE SLOW COOKED AND DE-SINEWED LIKE LIVER. THEN THERE IS THE DADDY OF THEM ALL, NAMELY HAGGIS. THE INSIDE IS MADE FROM THE OFFAL OF THE SHEEP MIXED WITH SPICES AND STUFF AND THE PROPER HAGGIS IS WRAPPED IN THE LINING FROM THE SHEEP'S STOMACH, BIUT YOU DO NOT EAT THE LINING. AGAIN, YUMMY, AND ESPECIALLY THE SPICY HAGGIS. DO YOU HAVE A FISH CALLED WHITEBAIT? IT IS A SMALL FISH AND YOU NORMALLY HAVE AT LEAST 20 PER SERVING. THE WHOLE FISH IS DOUSED IN FLOUR AND QUICKLY DEEP FRIED. DEVILLED WHITEBAIT HAS PAPRIKA ADDED TO THE FLOUR. I LOVE THEM BUT THE GIRLS DO NOT. OH THE QUIRKINESS OF LOCAL FOODS, LOL.

A, TOILING RIGHT NOW AS THE USB OART OF MY WIRELESS MOUSE PACKED UP SO I HAVE HAD TO REVERT TO THE MOUSE ON THE LAPTOP ITSELF AND YOU KNOW HOW I HATE THAT. I AM GOING TO THE STORE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING TO SEE IF I CAN GET ANOTHER ONE. SINCE THE CAKE IS SIMOKE ENOUGH I CAN AFFORD THE TIME.

I WOULD HESITATE TO WAIT ABOUT THE LAWYERS. TIME GOES BY AND IT MAY BECOME TOO LATE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THEM, NOT THAT YOUU WOULD HOLD OUT MUCH HOPE ANYHOW, WHICH IS WHY I SUGGESTED HIGHLIGHTING THE FACTS IN THE LOCAL PRESS AND NEGATIVE PUBLICITY IS NOT GOOD FOR SUCH A COMPETITVE FIELD, AND ESPECIALLY IF IT IS A BIG FIRM. GO FOR THE JUGULAR AND DO NOT LET GO ONCE YOU HAVE A HOLD. USE ANYTHING AND ANY MEANS TO SHOW THESE POMPOUS ASSES THAT THEY CANNOT SIMPLY DO THINGS FOR THEIR OWN EXPEDIENCY AND GREED.

THE TIGGER CAKE REALLY DOES LOOK SO GOOD AND IT IS A SHAME THAT I CANNOT TAKE A PHOTO OF IT AS I NEED NEW BATTERIES FOR THE CAMERA. IT WAS MADE NOT BY A PROFESSIONAL CHEF BUT A LADY WHO DOES HTIS SORT OF THING FOR A HOBBY AND JUST FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. FOR WHAT SHE CHARGED ME SHE WILL NOT HAVE MADE ANY MONEY FROM IT, THAT IS FOR SURE. SHE IS THE LADY I THINK I TOLD ABOUT WHO, PROFESSIONALLY, DESIGNS, MAKES AND SELLS DESIGNER JEWELLERY AND IS DONATING BOTH A PIECE FROM HER LATEST COLLECTION PLUS ANOTHER ONE OF HER CAKES AS RAFFLE PRIZES FOR THE CONCERT. A VERY TALENTED LADY INDEED.

AS FOR THE SEQUELS TO THE ORIGINAL FILMS, I AGREE WITH YOU SHERRY THAT NONE CAME UP TO THE FIRST ONES IN THE SERIES, AND YES, I HAVE ACTUALLY SEEN THEM ALL. I DO NOT NORMALLY WATCH THIS TYPE OF FILM BUT HAVING ENJOYED THE FIRST ONES I DID STRUGGLE TO WATCH THE REST. I CAN ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT WE HAD LUCKY AT THE TIME OF WHITE NOISE AND I HAD TOLD TRISH ABOUT IT. NOW TRISH LOVES VAMPIRES AND GHOULS AND THINGS AS YOU DO BUT SHE ADMITTED THAT WHITE NOISE SCARED HER. SHE HAD A BLANKET AROUND HER WHICH SHE KEPT HIDING UNDER AND SHE HAD LUCKY CUDDLING UP TO HER AS WELL. THAT RARELY HAPPENS, I CAN TELL YOU. THE OTHER REALLY WEIRD THING IS THAT NOT LONG AFTER TRISH WAS BORN I READ A BOOK CALLED FLIGHT 401 ABOUT AN AIRCRAFT THAT CRASHED IN THE EVERGLADES, AND ANY OART OF THE PLANE THAT WAS USED CAUSED APPARITIONS TO APPEAR OR WARNINGS TO BE GIVEN ABOUT MALFUNCTIONS. IT GOT TO THE EXTENT THAT THE COMPANY IN THE END HAD TO DISPOSE OF EVERY SINGLE PART OF THE DOWNED AIRCRAFT BEFOER THESE THINGS STOPPED HAPPENING AND ALL STAFF WERE WARNED THEY FACED THE SACK IF THEY SPPOKE OF SUCH THINGS EVEN IF THEY SAW THEM. IT IS A HECK OF A BOOK BUT DO NOT WATCH THE FILM AS IT DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE. ANYWAY, HAVING SET THE BACKGROUND, I RECOMMENDED THE BOOK TO MARY. TALK ABOUT WEIRD. EVERY TIME SHE PICKED UP THE BOOK TO READ SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN. THE DOOR BELL WOULD RING OR TRISH WOULD SCREAM TO GET HER NAPPY CHANGED. MUNDANE THINGS BIT IT GOT SO BAD THAT TO THIS DAY MARY HAS NEVER READ IT. I THINK THE ONLY OTHER FILM THAT SCARED ME WAS WHEN I WAS QUITE YOUNG AND HAPPENED TO WATCH ON LATE NIGHT TV THE ORIGINAL OF THE BOOK ROSEMARY'S BABY. THE BOOK WAS ALSO REALLY GOOD AND THE FILMM WAS ONE OF THE RARE BEASTS THAT ACTUALLY STUCK TO THE STORY.

WELL, THAT IS ME FOR THE DAY. IT IS PAST 10.10PM AND NOW I WILL NOT GET A LIE IN TONORROW AS I WILL NEED TO GET THE FIRST BUS DOWN TO THE STORE. AT LEAST I WILL HAVE TIME TO ALSO HAVE SOME BREAKFAST WHILST OUT AS THERE IS AN HOUR BETWEEN WHEN THE BUS DROPS ME OFF AND WHEN IT COMES BACK TO TAKE ME HOME.

HAVE A REALLY FABULOUS EVENING BOTH AND ENJOY THE LEFTOVER CHINESE.

HOPE TO CATCH YOU OVER THE WEEKEND.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon MAC............. GREAT WAY TO END OUR WEEK............

MAC'S QUIZ......

1................ TRUE.

2................. TRUE.

3.............. FALSE.

I KNOW THE UK HAS ALL KINDS OF YUCKY FOODS....... PIG BRAINS AND USING BLOOD AND GUTS FOR OTHER FOODS........ WHITE NOISE AND POLTERGEIST ARE AWESOME MOVIES......... THEY HAVE WHITE NOISE 2 BUT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FIRST MOVIE........ THERE ARE POLTERGEIST HAS 3 OTHER MOVIES OUT AND THEY GO ON FROM THE FAMILY IN THE FIRST MOVIE......... THAT I LIKE WHEN THEY BRING THE SAME PEOPLE BACK.....

TIGGER CAKE................ I BET IT LOOKS REALLY NEAT......... THOSE CAKE PEOPLE CAN REALLY MAKE SOME WILD CAKES...... ALL SHAPES AND SIZES AND ANY ONES FAVORITE THING .......... GOOD TO HEAR YOU HAD A NICE DAY AT THE CAFE.......... BUT I KNEW YOU WOULD........

GREAT IDEA TO ORDER THE SALAD AND SOUP FOR THE NEXT DAY......... DURING THE SUMMER I'M OUTSIDE WORKING ON THE PLANTS SO MUCH AND IT'S SO HOT I SURE DON'T FEEL LIKE BEING IN THE KITCHEN........... I'VE ALREADY EATEN 6 CUCUMBERS LOTS OF PEPPERS AND THE TOMATO PLANTS ARE FULL BUT THEY NEED TO GET RED......

WE'RE NOT SURE WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS LAWYER STUFF....... BUT IT WILL BE SOMETHING........ I MEAN HE IS NOT GETTING ANYMORE MONEY FROM US......... THE APPEAL COST MONEY TO DO BUT WE HAVE NO PROOF HE EVEN DID IT.... THIS LAWYER IS LOADED........... HAS A BIG OFFICE WITH TWO OTHER LAWYERS........ HE TAKES MANY DIVORCES CASES AND NOT THAT MANY CRIMINAL ONES......... BUT HE DOES TAKE THEM....... THAT IS NOW THE SECOND LAWYER THAT HAS SCREWED US RIGHT UNTIL THE END OF THE CASE......... I'M GLAD FINISHED OFF THE TIME.

THE FIRST LAWYER WE HAD ON THE CASE FOR TWO YEARS........ HE IS THE ONE THAT TOLD DOUG TO PLEAD GUILTY AND HE WOULD KEEP HIM OUT OF JAIL....... BUT WE FOUND OUT THAT WAS ALL BULL............. HE WAS IN CAHOOTS WITH THE PROSECUTOR........... WE FOUND OUT WE CAN APPEAL TO THE DRIVING BOARD TO ASK FOR LESS YEARS FOR DOUG TO BE UNABLE TO DRIVE...... SEE WHAT HAPPENS..... YOU NEVER KNOW......

WELL I HAVE TO HEAD OUT TO WATER........ IF I MISS YOU ENJOY YOUR EVENING MAC.

1. Antoninus . (Look back at blog on Falkirk Wheel canal trip as the canal actually folloiws some of this wall).

2. Boudicca

3. Butcher Cumberland


TODAY THE TRUE OR FLASE QIUZ HAS BEEN CULLED FROM NEWS STORIES FROM THE INTERNET. YOU JUST HAVE TO TELL ME IF THEY ARE TRUE OR NOT.

1. A Nigerian woman threw out her pet cat for having "homosexual tendencies"

2. A nine-year-old boy in South African married a 62-year-old woman.

3. Eating chicken wings could make children more aggressive, according to US researchers.

BEST OF LUCK.


SHERRY, OBVIOUSLY YOU WOULD NOT DREAM OF EARING THIS STUFF YOURSELF, ALTHOUGH THERE IS A DISH IN THE UK WHICH IS MADE FROM THE BRAINS OF A PIG AND IT IS CALLED BRAWN, AND VERY TASTY IT IS TOO. MOND YOU, THE PIG IS DEAD WHEN THE BRAINS ARE HARVESTED. WE HAVE A CLASSIC SCI-FI SERIES ON ONE OF OUT TV CHANNELS AT THE MOMENT AND IT IS SHOWING FILMS LIKE 'IT CAME FROM OUT OF SPACE'. WHEN OYU SEE THEM NOW YOU LAUGH BUT IN THEIR DAY THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN QUITE FRIGHTENING. I AM NOT INTO GORY HORROR BUT RATHER THE SPINE CHILLING STUFF SUCH AS 'WHITE NOISE' OR 'POLTEGEIST'.

WOW, 28°C IS HOT, HOT, HOT. IT HAS BEEN QUITE MUGGY HERE AND NOT PLEASANT AT ALL. I TOOK MY JACKET WITH ME BECAUSE THERE W ERE LOW CLOUDS AROUND BUT IT ENDED UP BEING PUT INTO MY CHIAIR BAG AS I ENDED UP SWEATING.

AND YES, GETTING OUOT IS FUN. I SPENT A LOVELY DAY TODAY AT THE CAFE AS WELL AS GETTING MY HAIR CUT AND I SURPRISED MARY THIS EVENING WITH A 'TIGGER' BIRTHDAY CAKE. I GAVE IT TO HER NOW AS I HAD NOWHERE TO STORE IT. I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE GIRL WHO MADE IT DID AN AWESOME JOB AND THE END PRODUCT WAS DEFINITELY TIGGER. I WILL NOT BE GIVING HER ANYTHING ELSE UNTIL SUNDAY WHEN SHE WILL GET HER NECKLACE.

I DO NOT SUPPOSE YOU MIND DOUG SUGGESTING YOU ORDER YOUR PIZZA IN FROM THE PLACE YOU WERE TELLING ME ABOUT. IF IT IS THAT GOOD THEN WHY NOT. SAVES YOU A JOB. IT IS THE SAME FOR ME TOMORROW IN THAT I HAVE NO COOKING TO DO. I BOUGHT BOTH MY LUNCH, (LENTIL SOUP), AND SUPPER, (ITALIAN CHICKEN SALAD), FROM THE CAFE. I ALWAYS GET A SALAD ON A SATURDAY BECAUSE I AM SO BUSY BAKING SO IT IS EASY JUST TO GRAB IT OUT OF THE FRIDGE. THE SOUP WILL GET PUT INTO A BOWL AND PUT INTO THE MICROWAVE SO AGAIN, IT IS SO EASY. I HAVE RIB EYE STEAK FOR SUNDAY. HAVEN'T DECIDED YET WHAT I AM HAVING WITH IT THOUGH.

I THINK RHAT YOU SHOULD LODE A CONPLAINT WITH YOUR BAR ASSOCIATION ABOUT THE WAY THE LAWYERS HAVE TREATED DOUG. WHEN A PROMISE LIKE THAT HAS BEEN MADE IT SHOULD BE STUCK TO AND THIS IS NO EAY TO GET OR KEEP CLIENTS. I WOULD TAKE IT ALL THE WAY AND EVEN HIGHLIGHT IT IN THE LOCAL PFESS IF NECESSARY AS YOU WONDER HOW OFTEN THIS LAWYER HAS DONE THIS SORT OF THING AND TO HOW MANY. PLUS THEIR WAS THE SUSPECGTED COLLUSION BY THE PROSECUTION AND THE JUDGE AT DOUG'S TRIAL. I THINK YOU SHOULD SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT THIS AS IT IS NOTHING MORE THAN CORRUPTION OF JUSTICE.

WILL POP BACK LATER ON BUT FOR NOW I WISH YOU A LOVELY FRIDAY.

AS FOR EATING BRAINS AND NOSES.............. I DON'T HAVE A TASTE FOR THAT STUFF........ I WAS JUST GIVING YOU AN IDEA OF HOW THE HANNIBLA MOVIES ARE AWESOME........... I LIKE THAT GORRY STUFF........ AND HORROR ALIENS ETC...

I AGREE GETTING OUT OF THE HOUSE IS A WAY TO HAVE SOME FUN AND SEE OTHER PEOPLE PLUS GET THE GROCERY'S I NEED AND IN THE SUMMER WHO WANTS TO BE STUCK IN THE HOUSE...........

I'M BACK TO WATERING............. TODAY WE'RE HITTING 28C...... WE THINK THE LAWYER IS LYING AND HE HASN'T PUT IN THE APPEAL........ YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT IN WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER THE SENTENCING........ AND HE HAD DOUG SIGNING PAPERS MONTHS AFTER HE WAS IN JAIL.........

EVERY FRIDAY NOW THAT I GOT DOUG TO TRY THE PIZZA AT A NEW PLACE IN TOWN..... HE SAID HE WOULD PREFER TO ORDER ONE ON FRIDAY..... BUT SINCE WE STILL HAVE LEFTOVERS FROM THE CHINESE THAT WILL BE EATEN TONIGHT....... THEN THE OTHER HALF OF SUB TOMORROW'S SUPPER......... NO COOKING NO COOKING.......... I LOVE IT...

SHERRY, WHAT CAN I SAY? I KNEW YOU HAD SOME WEIRD AND WONDERFUL TASTES BUT EATING NOSES AND FRYING A GUY'S BRAINS WHILST HE IS AT THE TABLE..... AND YOU LIKE TO MAKE UP YOUR OWN SUBS, LOL.

I KNOW WHAT OYU MEAN ABOUT GETTING OUT OF THE HOUSE. IT IS WHY MONDAY MORNINGS AND FRIDAYS ARE SO IMPORTANT FOR ME AS I NOT ONLY GET OUT OF THE HOUSE BUT I MEET UP WITH FRIENDS AND THE TIME JUST GOES TOO QUICKLY.

SORRY I MUST HAVE MISSED THE BIT ABOUT DOUG. I GUESS THIS COMES WITH THE TERRITORY AT THE MOMENT. THAT APPEAL IS TAKING TOO LONG.

HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR SHOPPING AND ENJOY THE SUBS THIS EVENING. CHINESE TOMORROW. WHAT HAPEEND TO PIZZA ON A FRIDAY? LOL.

SEE YOU TOMORROW SHERRY. 'NIGHT FOR NOW.

OH YES NOT JUST THE HANNIBLA MOVIES I LIKE ALL THE SHOWS OR MOVIES HE IS IN..... BUT ALL THE HANNIBLA MOVIES ARE TWISTED AND WEIRD..... HE DOES THINGS THAT ARE JUST UNHEARD OF........... AND NEVER GOOD ALWAYS BAD........ I MEAN EATING SOME ONES NOSE OFF AND FRYING UP A GUYS BRAINS WHILE HE IS SITTING AT THE TABLE AND DOESN'T EVEN KNOW............ AWESOME IS ALL I CAN SAY.

I LOVE THE CHICKEN BALLS WITH PINEAPPLE SAUCE......... THEIR DEEP FRIED AND SO GOOD.........I NEVER SEEN SESAME SEED BATTER........... IT SURE SOUNDS GOOD.....

I DON'T LIKE TO SHOP UNLESS I HAVE MONEY........ I'M NOT A WINDOW SHOPPER........ IF I SEE A WINDOW WITH SOMETHING I LIKE I WILL GO IN AND CHECK IT OUT............ WHILE DOUG WAS GONE......... I DID SHOPPING EVERY WEEK...... JUST TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE..........

IF THEY DON'T HAVE TO MIX PAINTS TO GET THE COLOR THEN IT SHOULD BE RIGHT IN THEIR STORE........ AND IF NOT THEY CAN ALWAYS MIX AND COME OUT WITH THE COLOR YOU WANT..... BLENDING IN WITH THE REST OF THE VILLAGE IS A GREAT IDEA....

IT WOULD BE GOOD IF YOU CAN POST A BLOG AND A VIDEO BLOG WOULD BE AWESOME TO SEE.......

NO I MENTIONED IN THE LAST POST THAT DOUG HAD TO SEE HIS PROBATION TODAY........ AND AS SOON AS HE GETS BACK WE'RE GOING SHOPPING.......... I TALKED HIM INTO PICKING UP SUBS ON THE WAY HOME......... CHINESE CAN BE FOR TOMORROW......

THIS IS THE FIRST DAY I DON'T HAVE TO WATER............. IT'S BEEN RAINING ALL DAY........... OKAY I BETTER GET READY TO GO...........BY NOW IT'S EVENING FOR YOU........... SO ENJOY MAC. emoticon

3. THE ANDAMAN ISLANDS.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ANOTJHER ONE UNDER THE BELT SHERRY.

BE;LIEVE IT OR NOT I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY OF THE HANNIBLA LECTER MOVIES. THE GIRLS HAVE SEEN THEM ALL AND TRISH LOVES THEM BUT I NEVER GOT AROUND TO IT.

WOW, I KNOW YOU SAID YOU LIKE TO LOAD YOUR SUBS BUT THAT IS JUST OVERLOAD, LOL. I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AS DOUG IN THAT I ONLY HAVE 1 1/2 TEETH ON THE TOP PALATE AND 3/4 SET ON THE BOTTOM. NOT SO MAD ON SOME OF THE CJHINESE SAUCES. I DO NOT MIND A SWEET AND SOUR SOMETIMES BUT AM VERY WARY AS IT CAN EITHER BE VERY GOOD OR JUST DOWNRIGHT AWFUL. I DO KNOW THAT WHEN WE DO GO TO THE CANTONESE THE GIRLS CANNOT WALK PAST THE DESSERT TROLLEY WITHOUT PICKING UP SOME PINEAPPLE BALLS IN SESAME SEED BATTER.

AS FOR SHOPPING; YES, MARY AND TRISH CAN SMELL A BARGAIN A MILE AWAY BUT I ALSO LOVE TO SHOP FOR ANYTHING. EACH FRIDAY AFTERNOON I GO AROUND THE SHOPS WINDOW SHOPPPING TO SEE WHAT THEY HAVE AND IF I HAVE THE MONEY I WILL GO AND BUY IF SOMETHING TAKES MY FANCY. I AM ON THE LOOKOUT FOR ANOTHER SUMMER JACKET AT THEM MOMENT AS MY OLD ONE HAD TO BE THROWN AFTER 20 YEARS OF FAITHFUL SERVICE.

THE PAINT WE ARE HOPING TO GET IS NOT ONE OF THE MIXES BUT COMES READY MADE. IT IS A COMMON COLOUR AS WELL SO I AM TRULY SURPRISED THAT IT WAS NOT IN STOCK. THE COLOUR IS SANDSTONE WHICH IS A VERY COMMON COLOUR FOR EXTERIORS AND WOULD BLEND IN WITH THE REST OF THE VILLAGE. ACTUALLY, THERE IS A HOUSE IN THE VILLAGE WHICH IS NOT QUITE FINISHED BUT WILL SOON BE PUT ON THE MARKET. IF I HAD THE MONEY I WOULD DEFINITELY BE INTERESTED AS ALTHOUGH IT DOES NOT HAVE AS BIG A GARDEN, IT IS A SLIGHTLY BIGGER HOUSE SO WOULD OFFER US MORE SPACE. MIND YOU, NO DOUNT THE GIRLS WOULD SOON FIND THINGS TO FILL IT WITH, LOL.

I AM HOPING TO GET SOMEONE TO REVORD AT LEAST PARTS OF THE CONCERT SO THAT I CAN PUT SOME VIDEO ONTO A BLOG FOR YOU ALL TO SEE. WHETHER THAT HAPPENS I AM NOT GOING TO PROMISE, BUT FINGERS CROSSED.

OK SHERRY. I PFRESUME THAT DOUG IS NOW OFF TO WORK SO YOU HAVE THE RST OF THE DAY TO LOOKFORWARD TO. ANYTHING EXCITING OR JUST STAYING IN AND HOUSEWORK? WHATEVER, HAVE A GOOD ONE.

EITHER TRISH WILL BE THERE AND IF SHE'S NOT ONE OF HER FRIENDS WILL BE TO LET THE PAINTERS IN TO DO THEIR JOB.....

WHY WOULDN'T THEY HAVE YOUR COLOR............ IT'S SOMETHING MARY SEEN AT THE STORE SO IT SHOULD BE NO PROBLEM........... NOW A DAYS TO GET THE PERFECT COLOR YOU WANT THE MIX TWO OR HOW EVER MANY COLORS TOGETHER TO MAKE THE COLOR YOU WANT......... I SURE HOPE THEY DON'T HAVE TO FIND A BACK UP COLOR........

WHEN WE ORDER CHINESE DOUG GETS THE FRIED RICE AND SHIRMP, I ALWAYS HAVE THE CANTENESE CHOW MEIN... WHICH MAY BE THE SAME AS YOUR HOUSE SPECIAL...

ANOTHER FAIRLY EASY ONE FOR YOU SHERRY. WHICH DOC AM I TALKING ABOUT?

1. "Well, Doc, I've got this friend who is working on a serial murder case and I was wondering if you could help her. In exchange, you may want to psychoanalyze her unhappy childhood. You never know, she might even enjoy fava beans and a nice Chianti." Which doctor am I talking to?

Dr. Zhivago
Dr. No
Dr. Moreau
Dr. Hannibal Lecter

2. "Well, Doc, I've got this friend who has a problem with addiction. He spends most of his time on a website called FunTrivia.com. He read your bestselling book 'Life Strategies', but just can't seem to 'get real'. Is it possible for him to be a guest on your TV show? He's been a big fan of yours since your stint on Oprah." Which doctor am I talking to?

Dr. Phil
Dr. Sigmund Freud
Dr. Andrew Weil
Dr. Drew Pinsky

3. "Well, Doc, I've got this friend and he wants permission to work with you and your friends in the diamond mine. He really admires your leadership and laughs when he hears your spoonerisms. The only problem is that he's rather tall." Which doctor am I talking to?

Doc Hudson
Doc, one of the seven dwarfs
Doc Watson
Doc Severinsen

BEST OF LUCK.

HEY SHERRY, I COULD TAKE YOU SHOPPING. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO ALSO, LOL. JUST DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO INDULGE TOO OFTEN SO MAYBE IF WE WERE TO BOTH WIN THE LOTTERY THEN BRING IT ON.

TRISH IS HOPING TO HAVE HER SURGERY BEFORE WE GO BUT IF NOT THEN SHE WILL GET ONE OF HER PALS TO COME UP AND OVERSEE THE HOUSE WHEN THE PAINTER COMES. WE WILL NOT HAVE TO CANCEL. WHAT WE ARE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH IS GETTING HOLD OF THE COLOUR WE INITIALLY CHOSE SO THE GIRLS HAVE BEE FORCED TO LOOK AT A BACKUP ONE JUST ON CASE. WHY COMPANIES PUT COLOURS ON THEIR PUBLIC PALETTES THE YOU OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO BUY THEM IN THE HARDWARE STORES, OR IS THAT JUST COMMON SENSE?

HOPE YOU ENJOYIED YOUR CHINESE. I LOVE CHINESE FOOD FOR THE MOST PART BUT MY NORMAL TAKE OUT IS CHICKEN AND SWEETCORN SOUP FOLLOWED BY THE HOUSE SPECIAL CHOW MEIN. IT IS A TREAT AS THE SECOND COURSE IS A LITTLE HEAVY ON THE CAALORIES OWING OF THE NOODLES AS MUCH AS ANYTHING. WE HAVE A CHOICE OF DECENT PLACES FOR TAKEPUT AND THOSE THAT DO NOT COME UP TO SCRATCH DO NOT TEND TO LAST VERY LONG AS COMPETITION IS REALLY FIERCE IN THIS SECTOR.

APART FROM THE PEPPERS AND THE SAUCE I LIKE THE SOUND OF YOUR SUB. I WOULD HAVE HAM, CHICKEN, LETTUCE, TOMATO, CHEESE AND SOME EGG MAYO ON MINE. I NORMALLY HAVE TO CUT IT INTO SLICES SO THAT I CAN EAT IT, LOL.

TODAY HAS BEEN A REALLY GOOD DAY FOR ME. MARY TOOK ME DOWN TO THE CHURCH WITH ALL OF MY INSTRUMENTS AND I HAD AN EXCELLENT 6 HOURS OF PURE REHEARSAL. IT IS WHAT I NEEDED AND I NOW KNOW THE AREAS I NEED TO FOCUS ON. IT WAS JUST SO GOOD THAT I COULD BE ON MY OWN AND MAKE AS MANY MISTAKES AS I LIKED IEFFECT, PLUS I WAS ABLE TO PLAY THE BODHRAN WHICH IS SOMETHING I CANNOT DO AT HOME BECAUSE IT WOULD DEFINITELY UPSET THE NEIGHBOURS. I AM HOPING TO DO THIS AGAIN NEXT WEEK.

THAT IS IT FOR NOW. HOPE YOUR DAY GOES AS WELL AS MINE. CHAT LATER.

HI MAC.................. WELL I JUST GOT IN FROM WATERING SOME WEEDING AND DEADHEADING.............. WHEW!! BOY IS IT HOT OUT THERE......... I HAD JUST GOT STARTED AND THE SWEAT WAS POURING DOWN MY FACE.....

I DON'T THINK US GIRLS WOULD NEED ANYONE ELSE TO UPROOT THE PLACE..... TRISH AND I WOULD BE COOKING AND BBQ........ PLUS I KNOW THE GIRLS SHOP LOTS..... THAT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE PASS TIMES.......NOT ONLY THAT THEY COULD TAKE ME TO SOME GREAT PLACES AND STORES....... I WOULD FOR SURE BRING A LOT OF CASH WITH ME.....IT'S JUST TOO BAD THIS IS A PIPE DREAM........ BUT HEY YOU NEVER KNOW...... IF I EVER WON THE LOTTERY I WOULD BE TRAVELING TO SEE YOU ALL.

I WOULD THINK AFTER SERVICE BEING IN SUCH HEAT ALL THE TIME IT DON'T GET TO YOU HOW IT DOES TO OTHER PEOPLE......... EVEN IF I HAD THE WHOLE HOUSE WITH A/C IT'S STILL TOO HOT TO DO ANY COOKING.... WHEN I DO SUBS I LOAD THEM UP........ DOUG LIKES USUALLY TURKEY LOAF WITH LOTS OF CHEESE AND WHEN WE GO TO SUBWAY HE ORDERS DOUBLE MEAT........ I HAVE CHICKEN........ I HAVE CUTUP TOMATOES ONIONS CHEESES PEPPERS FOR ME...... THEN LETTUCE WITH LOTS OF DIFFERENT SAUCES......... I EVEN ORDER MY SUB THAT WAY IF WE'RE OUT.... I CAN HARDLY GET MY MOUTH OVER THE WHOLE THING......... LOL.

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT WASTING YOUR TIME.......... BUT LIKE YOU SAY IT'S NOT THE GUYS FAULT IT'S THE COMPANY BOOKING EVERYTHING THEY CAN IN A MATTER OF A DAY....... AND THEN IT LOOKS BAD ON THE GUY.... BUT I HAVE WAITED LIKE THAT AND GAVE UP ALL KINDS OF THINGS I WOULD HAVE DONE IF NOT WAITING.

OKAY IT'S NEXT MONTH YOU AND MARY GO AWAY.......... SO IT'S GOOD TO HEAR THAT IS STILL ON........ HOPEFULLY TRISH CAN GET THE SURGERY WHILE YOUR GONE AND BE IN MAYBE GOOD SHAPE BY THE TIME YOU GET BACK........... I KNOW IT'S BEEN ALONG TIME SINCE YOU WENT THAT WAY WITH THE GIRLS....... FOR SURE TRISH WILL BE FIND KNOWING PEOPLE WILL DROP IN AND CHECK ON HER.......... WHAT HAPPENS IF SHE IS IN THE HOSPITAL WHEN THE PAINTING IS SUPPOSE TO BE DONE.

DOUG WANTED ME TO ORDER CHINESE FOOD............. SO I'M WAITING FOR THEM TO DELIVER THE FOOD THEN I'M GOING UPSTAIRS IN MY COOL ROOM TOO WATCH SOME TV............. ENJOY YOUR EVENING MAC............ SEE YOU TOMORROW emoticon

I AGREE ABOUT THE HUMIDITY. IT IS JUST SO DEBILITATING IT IS UNREAL. AS SOON AS YOU GET OUT IN IT YOU JSUT FEEL SO LETHARGIC AND HTHERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT. I GET YOUR POINT BUT I WOULD SOONER HAVE A GOOD MOUTHFUL OF STUFF IN SLICES RATHEER THAN SMALL CUBES. IT IS ALSO EASIER TO PICK UP. TRISH PROVIDED FORKS ONLY WHEREAS SOME OF THE BITS REQUIRTED A SPOON! AND YES, IF YOU WERE HERE IT WOULD BE A CASE OF YES, I AM DAFT, BUT I AM NOT STUPID, LOL. I SHUDDERF TO THINK WHAT HAVOC THE THREE OF YOU WOULD CASUSE TOGETHER AND ESPECIALLY IF THEY INTRODUCED YOU TO TWO OF THEIR PALS. THEY ARE THE SAME AND I DISAPPEAR WHENEVER THEY VISIT AS IT IS BEDLAM. CRIKEY, THE FIVE OF YOU GIRLS WOULD REALLY BE TROUBLE, LOL.

FUNNILY ENOUGH, I HAVE NO PROBLEMS ABOUT COOKING EVEN DURING THE PROPER SUMMER WEATHER. WHETHER IT IS BECAUSE I GOT USED TO HEAT LIKE IT IN THE PRO KITCHEN I DON'T KNOW, BUT IT HAS NEVEER BOTHERED ME, WHEREAS THE GIRLS ARE LIKE YOU IN THAT THE HEAT JUST MAKES THEM WANT TO NOT BOTHER AND GO FOR COLD EATS. AS FOR SANDWICHES, BRING THEM ON SHERRY. YOU HAVE TO FILL A SANDWICH REALLY. WE HAVE NOT MADE SUBS FOR AGES BUT WHEN WE DID WE TENDED TO GO OVERBOARD WITH THE FILLING. WELL, YOU HAVE TO TASTE THE FILLING AND IT IS A MEAL. AS FOR THE ENGINEER; I WAS A LITTLE FRUSTRATED TO PUT IT POLITELY. AT KLEAST HE DID HAVE THE COURTESY TO CALL US HIMSELF THOUGH RATHER THAN JIUST GET THE COMPANY TO DO IT. THAT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT HIM. I COULD HAVE DONE SO MUCH TODAY SO TO ME IT WAS A WASTED ON.

MARY AND I ARE GOING ON HOLIDAY NEXT MPONTH, WHICH IS WHEN TRISH HOPES TO GO IN FOR HER OPERATION. IT IS ALSO NOW THE TIME WHEN THE PAINTER IS COMING TO PAINT THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE AND CLEAR OUR GUTTERS ING FROM THE MOSS BUILD UP. WE GO ON HIS FIRST DAY AND THE JOB IS SLATED FOR THREE DAYS TOTAL. IF TRISH DOES NOT GO IN DURING AUGUIST THEN THE HOSPITAL IS OBLIGED TO WRITE AND TELL HER WHY AS UNCDER LAW THERE IS A MAXIMUM WAITING TIME FOR OPERATIONS LIKE HERS, \(12 WEEKS MAXIMUM). BOTH OF US HAVE BEEN LUCKY IN THE PAST IN THAT WE HAVE MANAGED TO GET IN EARLY BECAUSE OF CANCELLATIONS BUT NOT THIS TIME FOR TRISH. LUCKILY SHE DOES HAVE PEOPLE WHO WILL DROP BY AND MAKE SURE SHE IS OK. HER OLDER BROTHER FOR ONE AND HER BEST PAL FOR ANOTHER, SO SHE SHOULD BE FINE.

AT THE MOMENT, AS I SAID, WE ARE OKAY WITH THE AMOUNT OF RAIN WE HAVE HAD AND THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL ALSO SEE OSME RAIN SHOWERS, WHICH MAY MEAN GIVING THE GROUND A BIT OF A WATER BUT JUST THE ONCE ONLY. WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.

ANYWAY, HAT IS ME FOR THE DAY. IT IS LIGHTS ON AND CURTAINS SHUT TIME SO I AM OUT OF HERE AND WILL BE RELAXING FOR AN HOUR BEFORE TURNING IN. HAVE A FULL REHEARSAL DAY TOMORROW SO THAT SHOULD CHEER ME UP.

HAVE A SUPER EVENING SHERRY. SEE YOU TOMORROW.

1. Foie gras (goose liver)

2. Shark fin soup

3. Ketchup


MINE IS QUITE ANB EASY ONE ALSO SHERRY. ALL ON FORMER PARTNERS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE.

1. During the 1960s, Carole King and her husband were one of the most sought-after song writing duos in the music business. When Carole divorced him and released an album in her own right called 'Tapestry' in 1971, it seemed he was all but left in the dust. Who is he?

Jerry Leiber
Gerry Goffin
Neil Sedaka
Mike Stoller

2. A 2009 survey in "Forbes" magazine listed actor Will Smith as the most bankable actor in Hollywood. How many of you still remember he started in 1985 as one-third (later half) of a successful rap group, whose remaining partner made periodic appearances on Smith's hit TV show 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air'? What is the real name of 'DJ Jazzy Jeff'?

William Drayton, Jr.
Jeff Townes
Tracy Lauren Marrow
James Todd Smith

3. For over a hundred years, one of the great business success stories in the USA was the catalogue-based retail outlet chain started by entrepreneur Richard Warren Sears back in 1886. Before the turn of the century, he had acquired a partner and the two made their catalogue a household essential. Strangely, the catalogues and many retail outlets to follow never carried any other name but Sears. Who was Sears' partner?

Alvah Curtis Roebuck
James Penney
Aaron M. Ward
Samuel Moore Walton

YES, YOU WILL DEFITELY GET YOUR MONEY'S WORTH FROM THAT A/C. OUR TEMPS HAVE FALLEN AT THE MOMENT, WHICH IS NOT TOO BAD A THING AS THE HUMIDIDTY HAS GONE AS WELL;. HAVING SAID THAT WE ARE STILL AROUND 18° TO 21°C SO QUITE PLEASANT.

OKAY, I DO NOT MIND CUBED FOOD. I CUBE IT ALL THE TIME WHEN MAKING CERTAIN DISHES, BUT NOT AS SMALL AS TRISH DOES HERS. I LIKE TO TASTE WHAT I AM PUTTING IN MY MOUTH SO LIKE A DECENT SIZE. I LIKE MY ONIONS COOKED FOR THE MOST PART AND WILL ONLY HAVE RAW ONION IN EITHER POTATO SALAD OR WITH CHEESE IN A SANDWICH, AND THEN IT IS WHITE ONION. YOU MAY ALSO LIKE THE DRESSING THE GIRLS USED. IT WAS A MILME AND CORIANDER DRESSING WHICH TRISH MADE UP. NOT FOR ME. AND YOU KNOW YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WELCOME HERE SHERRY. I WILL JUST GO CAMPING AND LEAVE YOU GIRLS TO IT, LOL. (EVEN I COULDN'T COPE WITH THE THREE OF YOU TOGETHER, LOL).

YES, IT IS BACK TO THE GRINDSTONE NOW AND IT IS A SHAME THAT DOUNG COULD NOT HAVE HAD MORE TIME OFF TO SPEND WITH YOU, BUT HE HAS A JOB AND THAT IS THE MAIN THING. YOU WILL SOON GET USED TO COOKING AND MAKING SANDWICHES ETC. AGAIN.

I HAVE HAD A REALLY BORING DAY TODAY. OKAY, I DID GET SOME MUSIC STUFF DONE BUT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR MOST OF THE DAY FOR THE ENGINEER TO TURN UP TO FIX THE VENT IN THE BATHROOM AND AT 3.30PM HE CALLS AND SAYS HE IS SO TIED UP THAT HE CANNOT MAKE IT TODAY AND COULD WE RE-ARRANGE. HE IS NOW COMING NEXT TUESDAY. THE GIRLS HAVE BEEN OUT SO I WAS ABLE TO EAT FISH FOR LUNCH, WHICH WAS NICE. TRISH CANNOT TOLERATE THE SMELL OF IT COOKING SO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL SHE IS OUT OF HTE HOUSE BEFORE HAVING IT, AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY FISH IN MOST FORMS. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE AUTUMN AS ANOTHER OF THE RESTAURANTS WE USE IS PUTTING GRILLED SEA BASS ON THE MENU AND I REALLY LIKE THAT FISH.

AS FOR FAMILY TIME; I THINK THAT ONCE TRISH IS SORTED OUT WE WILL BE ABLE TO ORGANISE A LOT MORE BUT THAT WILL PROBABLY NOT BE UNTIL NEXT YEAR NOW. THE GIRLS ARE AWAY FOR A COUPLE OF NIGHTS IN SEPTEMBER, WHICH WILL BE GOOD AS IT LEAVES ME FREE TO GET ON WITH STUFF FOR THE CHURCH WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. I HOPE EVERYTHIG WILL BE DONE AND DUSTED BY THEN SO THAT ALL WE HAVE TO SDO IS TO CONCENTRATE ON THE MUSIC.

I AM NOT AT THE STAGE WHERE I NEED TO WATER THE GARDEN ALL OF THE TIME BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH MOISTURE ABOUT IN THE AIR EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT ACTUALLY RAINING. I WILL, HOWEWER, BE KEEPING AN EYE ON THE SOIL AS I DO NOT WANT IT TO DRY OUT.

THAT IS IT IN A NUTSHELL. AM GOING TO MAKE A SANDWICH FOR MY SUPPER AND THEN IT IS BACK TO THE COMPUTER AS I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR SOME MUSIC SCORES AND HAVE SO FAR NOT FOUND THEM.

DON'T WORK TOO HARD, SHERRY. CHAT LATER.

I GOT TO FIND A WAY DOWN THERE AND STAY AWHILE UNTIL I GET TO TASTE ALL HER FAVORITES.....

I SURE CAN RELATE TO HOW NICE IT IS TO SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY........ SOMETHING ALL OF US DON'T HAVE TIME FOR VERY OFTEN...... IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU COULD ALL PLAN A DAY AHEAD OF TIME TO DO ANYTHING FAMILY......

I HAD A GREAT DAY ALSO........ DOUG IS BACK TO WORK SO THAT ADDS SOME EXTRA WORK FOR ME............ ONCE I GET USE TO HIM BEING HOME AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES WITH HIM BEING HOME......... I WILL FIND MORE TIME FOR ME.........

OK SHERRY, YOU DID GET Q2 WRONG. IT WAS RAVEL - BOLERO. I DID NOT KNOW THIS EITHER. I AM SUITABLE IMPRESSED THOUGH AS THIS WAS A BIT OF A STINKER.

YOUR QUIZ TODAY.

1. French executioners, or bourreaux, were social outcasts

2. Llama trainer

3. Hanging

BECAUSE I SET YOU A REALLY DIFFICULT MUSIC ONE YESTERDAY I HAVE ATONED AND TODAY I SUSPECT YOU WILL HAVE NO PROBLEMS.

1. In 1968, Dion released a melancholy song in the US, which Marvin Gaye covered and released in the UK in 1970. The song asked,

"Anybody here seen my old friend _______?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lotta people
But it seems, the good, they die young.
I just looked around and he's gone."

All of the following four "friends" are mentioned in the song, but one is *NOT* mentioned in the title - which one is it?

John
Abraham
Bobby
Martin

2. This song, written by the Canadian songwriter Gene MacLellan, was released by Anne Murray in 1970, hitting the charts like a blizzard. Its well-known chorus is as follows:

"Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
And if I could, I would fly away with you"

What was the title of this hit song?

Robin
Hummingbird
Snowbird
Sparrow

3. This song, written by Joni Mitchell was made into a US hit by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. A Matthews' Southern Comfort cover reached number one in the UK.

"I came upon a child of God.
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going,
And this he told me."

Woodstock
Live Aid
Fillmore East
Central Park

BEST OF LUCK.


SHERRY, IN THE HEAT THAT YOU GET I CANNOT BLAME YOU ONE IOTA FOR GETTING AN A/C FOR THE UPSTAIRS. TO ME IT IS A NECCESSITY IN SUCH TEMPERATURES.

IT MUST BE SO GOOD TO HAVE DOUG BACK. THE HOUSE IS FULL ONCE MORE.

TODAY HAS BEEN A REALLY GOO DONE. WE WERE ABLE TO SPEND MOST OF IT AS A FAMILY. OK, THE GIRLS DID GO FOR THEIR HAIR APPOINTENTS WHILST I MET UP WITH MY FRIENDS AT THE CAFE THIS MORING, BUT AFTERWARDS WE HAD A LOVELY DRIVE OUT. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO MEET UP WITH THE LASS THAT IS GETTING MARRIED IN OCTOBER. I WILL NOT SEE HER UNTIL NEXT YEAR NOW. SHE INTRODUCED ME TO A NEW MEMBER OF THE TEAM WHO IS A MEMBER OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY FRO THE PROTECTION OF BIRDS. SHE WAS BUSY TODAY AS THERE WAS A GROUP OF CHILDREN IN AND WHEN I GOT THERE THEY WERE ENGROSSED IN A PROJECT SHE HAD SET FOR THEM. I THOUGHT THIS WAS GREAT ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. TO SEE KIDS OUT DOING STUFF LIKE THIS MMUST MEAN A YOUTH CLUB OUTING AND IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO SEE. ANYHWAY, WE HAD A REALLY GOOD BLATHER AND WE HUGGED AND SAID WE WOULD SEE EACH OTHER NEXT YEAR.

AS IT HAPPENED, THE CHAP I SAID I WOULD BAKE THE CAKE FOR WAS ON DAY OFF BUT NICKI DID SAY SHE MIGHT SAVE HIM A SLICE, LOL. (THE EMPHASIS ON THE MIGHT).

IT WAS NOT SUNNY BIUT NICE ENOUGH SO THAT WE SAT OUTSIDE AND HAD A PICNIC. I HAD GOT SOME WHOLEGRAIN TOLLD MADE UP AT THE CAFE WITH ROAST BEEF, LETTUCE AND TOMATRO AND TRISH HAD PREPARED HER VERSION OF A ROAST BEEF SALAD FOR HERE AND MARY. WHEN I SAW HOW IT WAS PREPARED AND WHAT WAS IN IT I DECLINED THE OFFER. DO NOT LIKE MY SALAD IN SMALL CUBES AND I AM NOT A FAN OF RED ONIONS IN SALAD EITHER. ANYWAY, SUBSEQUENTLY TRISH WENT LIKE ICE. THE GIRLS WERE AT LEAST DRESSED IN LONG SLEEVED CARDIGANS WHEREAS I WAS IN A T-SHIRT, BJT TRISH HAD TO GO NBACK TO THE CAR IN THE END. JUST HOPE SHE IS OK AND IS NOT COMING DOWN WITH ANYTHING. MARY WAS OK AND SHE IS NORMALLY ONE TO FEEL THE COLD.

IT WAS SO NICE TO SPEND TIME WITH THE FAMILY AND WE REALLY DO NOT DO IT OFTEN ENOUGH. WE JUST SEEM SO BUSY WITH DOING OUT OWN THINGS AND I AM GOING TO SPEAK TO THE GIRLS ABOUT IT. WE NEED TO MAKE TIME TO DO THIS MORE OFTEN. I KNOW MARY ENJOYED IT AS SHE SAID THAT SHE WOULD LIKE TO GO OUT AND ABOUT MORE NEXT YEAR. TOO LATE THIS YEAR, BUT THE SEED HAS BEEN SOWN AND WE ARE LUCKY IN THAT WE ARE NOT LIMITED TO HAVING TO USE THE CAR AS WE CAN ALL GET FREE BUS TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN SCOTLAND.

ANOTHER DAY I WISH I COULD BOTTLE, SHERRY. HOPEFULLY YOURS IS GOING THE SAME WAY. CHAT LATER.

MARTINI – PLAISIR D'AMOUR.

VERDI – REQUIEM.

I DO WISH YOU THE VERY BEST OF LUCK WITH THIS ONE AND I WILL MAKE IT UP TOMORROW WITH AN EASIER ONE FOR YOU.

IT IS GONE 9.10PM AND I HAVE JUST FINISHED. I WENT TO THE VCAFE THIS MLORNING BUT I HAD TO BE IN TOWN ANYWAY TO DO SOME SHOPPING AND ALSO SEE A LADY ABOUT MAKING SOME PAVLOVAS. SHE IS PAYING ME FOR IT SO I WILL GET MY MONEY BACK THIS TIME. AM NOT DOING IT FOR PROFIT AS I KNOW THE LADY WELL AND SHE IS A CARER FOR HER MOTHER, FOR WHOM SHE IS HOLDING A BIRTHDAY PARTY AND THIS WILL BE PART OF IT.

THIS AFTERNOON I HAD A CHOCOLATE CAKE TO MAKE, PARTLY THE REASON I HAD TO GO INTO TOWN AS I HAD RUN OUT OF THE SORT OF SUGAR I USE IN THIS TYPE OF CAKE AMONGST OTHER THINGS. THAT WASN'T SO BAD BUT AFTER THE CAKE HAD COME OUT OF THE OVEN IT OBVIOUSLY HAD TO COOL, BY WHICH TIME TRISH WAS IN THE KITCHEN PREPARING SUPPER FOR HER AND MARY. THEN I COOKED MY SUPPER AND AFTER THAT MARYC AM IN SO TRISH WAS BACK IN THE KITCHEN. FINALLY GOT TO MAKING THE BUTTERCREAM AND MELTING THE CHOCOLATE AT AROUND 7.45PM AND IT WAS SO WARM IN THE KITCHEN THAT I HAD TO KEEP PUTTING THE BUTTERCREAM INTO THE FRIDGE TO COOL AS IT JUST WAS NOT WORKING. THE CAKE IS NOW IN THE FRIDGE AND SOMEHOW I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TRY AND GET IT ITO A COOLBAG WHEN DELIVERING AS IT WILL BE AROUND 6 HOURS BEFORE I CAN GIVE IT OVER. THE GIRLS BOTH HAVE HAIR APPOINTMENTS SO I AM MEETING THEM AT THE CAFE BECAUSE WE ARE THEN GOING TO DELIVER THE CAKE TO THE RANGERS STATION WHERE I CAMP. I WILL BE GETTING THE BUS AT AROUND 8AM AND WILL NOT BE COLLECTED UNTIL AROUND 11AM AND FROM THERE IT IS AT LEAST 1 1/2 HOURS DRIVE. BELIV E ME, I AM GOING TO BE KEEPING EVERYTHING CROSSED THAT I DO NOT HAVE A CHOCOLATE BLOB BY THE TIME WE GET THERE.

ANYWAY, RIGHT NOW I AM COOLING OFF AS BY THE TIME I HAD FINISHED MY SHIRT WAS ABSOLUTELY SOAKING WET WITH SWEAT, AND APART FROM THE WARMTH OF THE KITCHEN IT IS PURELY THROUGH CONCENTRATION.

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, A SCHNITZEL IS PORK, IN OUR CASE A PORK LOIN STEAK, WHICH HAS BEEN BATTERED OUT SO IT IS NICE AND THIN AND THEN BRAD CRUMBED AND PAN FRIED. THE MOST FAMOUS OF THE LOT IS THE WIENER , (PRONOUNCED ' VEENER' AND NAMED AFTER VIENNA WHICH IS WIEN IN GERMAN), SCHNITZEL BUT IT IS THE SAUCE THAT GIVES THIS ITS NAME. SOUNDS REALLY CALORIFIC BUT USING PORK LOIN WITH THE FAT CUT OFF IS HEALTHY OPTION TO START WITH. THE CRUMB IS HOME MADE USING WHOLEMEAL BREAD, ZEST OF LEMON, THYME AND A LITTLE PARMESAN. THE PORK IS TOSSED IN FLOUR AND EGG AND THEN THE CRUMBS AND IS PAN FRIED USING OLIVE OIL SPRAY. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT SHERRY AS IT IS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. JUST USE COMMON SENSE WHEN MICUNG THE INGREIENT BUT IF YOU USE TWICE AS MUCH BREADCRUMBS TO LEMON AND THYME AND ONLY ABOUT A TEASDPOON OF PARMESAN THE YOU SHOULD BE OK. HTHE PARMESAN IS NOT FOR FLAVOUR BUT IS THERE TO HOLD THE CRUMB TOGETHER ONCE ON THE PORK.

FISH AND CHIPS WITH COLESLAW AND TATAFRE SAUCE. SOUNDS LIKE HEAVEN ALTHOUGH WE WOULD SERVE OURS BATTERS RATHER THAN BREADED. IT IS A TREAT THAT WE STILL INDULGE IN FROM TIME TO TIME, ALHTOUGH NOT TOO OFTEN FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.

POOR DOUG. JUST GOT BACK HOME AND YOU ARE WORKING HIM ALREADY, LOL. I DO HOPE HE IS WELL AND I KNOW YOU WILL BE SO PLEASED HE IS HOME AGAIN. JUST NEED TO KEEP PUSHING FOR THAT APPEAL SO HE CAN GET HIS LICENCE BACK AND ALSO HIS NAME CLEARED.

AT LEAST YOU MANAGED TO GET OUT INTO THE YARD, HOT THOUGHT IT MAY HAVE BEEN. WITH ALL THE STORMS YOU HAVE BEEN HAVING I GUESS YOU HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THIS WINDOW JUST IN CASE.

OK SHERRY, I WILL AWAIT YOU CALLING ME ALL THE NAMES UNDER THE SUN FOR THE QUIZ. CATCH YOU LATER.

HI MAC.............. I KNEW I HAD TO GET IN HERE AND ANSWER YOUR POST....... I'VE BEEN SO BUSY........ WE'VE BEEN IN AND OUT ALL WEEKEND....... THEN MONDAY WE HAVE A BUNCH OF THINGS TO GET DONE.......... THINGS SHOULD SLOW DOWN IN TUESDAY..... DOUG WILL BE BACK TO WORK.....

WELL YOU HAVE SOME COOKING TO GET DONE........ HOPE IT ALL TURNED OUT.......... BEEF AND MUSHROOM WOULD BE GREAT....... BUT I WOULD HAVE CHICKEN OR PORK WITH MINE.......... GOOD TO HEAR THE GIRLS ARE GOING TO TRY A MEAL FROM THEIR DIET PLAN......... I'M GLAD TO HEAR YOUR GOING TO TRY IT.......... IT'S LOW CALORIES AND MUCH BETTER FOR ALL OF US........ I LOVE POTATO SALAD...... NEVER HAD THE PORK SCHNIZEL......... IS THAT SOME KIND OF SAUSAGE...

THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH SHOOTING GOING AROUND..... THE STATES HAVE HAD THEIR SHARE THAT'S FOR SURE.. WITH LOTS OF PEOPLE HURT OR DEAD....

WE HAVE BEEN OUT WATERING AND CUTTING THE GRASS TODAY....... SO WE WALKED OVER TO THIS OUTSIDE PLACE THAT SERVES DEEP FRIED COD FISH AND CHIPS.... WITH COLESLAW AND TARTAR SAUCE........... YES DEEP FRIED IS NOT GOOD...... BUT I DON'T DO IT OFTEN........... I DON'T LIKE JUST PLAN OR FRIED FISH IT HAS TO BE BREADED FOR ME TO EAT IT.....

I DON'T WANT TO BE COOKING IN THIS HEAT ANYWAYS....... THIS MORNING WE HAD NO POWER......... LASTED OVER 1 HOUR......... COULDN'T MAKE COFFEE OR TOAST...... SO DOUG RAN OVER TO THE 7-11....... THEY WERE CLOSED WAITING FOR THE COMPUTER TO REBOOT........... IT'S 3 PM NOW AND THEIR STILL NOT OPEN...

I WAS POURING SWEAT OUT WATERING........... DOUG HUNG ALL THE CHIMES I BOUGHT....... AND HE PUT HIS HEAD DOWN SO I COULD SPRAY THE WATER AND COOL HIM DOWN...

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon THAT MAKES IT 100% FOR THE WEEK FOR YOU SHERRY. emoticon

OK, TO CLARIFY, THE LADY WHO WAS IN THE HOSPITAL WAS THERE IN THE CAFE TODAY. SHE HAS BEEN HOME FOR JUST OVER A WEEK NOW BUT HAS JUST STARTED TO GO OUT AGAIN AS SHE WAS STILL A PLITTLE CONFUSED UP TO NOW. SHE SUFFERS WITH DEMENTIA AS IT IS SO HER HUBBY HAS BEEN REALLY WORRIED.

AS FOR THE SALAD, I GET IT TO GO. I D NOT EAT IT AT THE CAFE. NORMALLY I EAT IT ON A SATURDAY WHEN IT IS EASY FOR ME JUST TO GRAB SOMMETHING AFTER BAKING BUT TOMORROW I AM CHANGING THE ROUTINE AND AM DOING A BEEF AND MUSHROOM CASSEROLE PLUS AT THE SAME TIME I WILL BE MAKING A BEEF AND VEG BROTH WHICH LINDA TOLD US ALL ABOUT AND THE RECIPE FOR WHICH IS ON SPARK. TRISH IS COOKING OFR US ON SUNDAY AND DOING A MEAL FROM THE GIRLS' DIET PLAN, NAMELY A PORK SCHNIZEL WITH A LIME CRUSTED COATING TOGETHER WITH SOME POTATO SALAD. AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT ONE AS I LOVE SCHNITZELS IN ANY FORM. THE GIRLS ARE ALSO HAVING A SIDE SALAD BUT THE POTATO SALAD WILL BE ENOUGH FOR ME. I AM FINDING MORE AND MORE THAT I AM NOT EATING AS MUCH THESE DAYS AND CAN FILL MYSELF UP WITH LESS. COMES WITH AGE I GUESS.

YES, WE ALWAYS HAVE A BIT OF A LAUGH. IT WAS JUST THAT TODAY WAS JUST OTT AND I HTINK IT WAS GOOD AS IT WAS JUST THE THREE OF US. AT ONE POINT THE OLDER LADY WAS IN SUCH A STATE OF LAUGHTER WE THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE AN ATTACK. I HAVE NEVER SEEN HER LIKE THAT BEFOERE BUT IT WAS SO GOOD AND I THIK IT WAS JUST WAS WE NEEDED.

AM JUST WATCHING TV AND THERE HAS BEEN AN INDISCRIMINATE SHOOTING IS A SHOPPING MALL IN MUNICH. THERE ARE UP TO THREE MEN INVOLVED AND THEY ARE STILL ON THE RUN. THE CITY IS IN LOCKDOWN AND ALL PUBLIC TRANSPORT HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN AS WELL. SO FAT 5 CONFIRMED DEAD AND SEVERAL SERIOUSLY WOUNDED. THE POLICE ARE LOOIJG FOR UP TO THREE BUT IT COULD BE ONE MAN IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS. THE POLICE JUST DO NOT KNOW AND EVERYONE IS RUNNING ABOUT LIKE HEADLESS CHICKENS RIGHT NOW AZS THE AUTHORITES GET ON TOP OF THE SITUATION. THEN THE EU WONDER WHY WE WANT TO STOP UNRESTRICTED MOVEMENT WITHIN THE CONTINENT.

I AM SURE DOUG WILL WANT A DECENT PIZZA AND SINCE IT IS FRIDAY I AM SURE YOU WILL BE OK WITH THAT. BUYING IN DOES SOUND THE WAY TO GO FOR A CHANGE AS YOU WILL WANT TO CATCH UP PROPERLY WITH HIM AND WILL NOT WISH TO DO ANY COOKING.

AS FOR THE WEATHER, I THINK OVERALL I DID MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION NOT TO GO CAMPING. YET MORE RAIN AND QUITE HEAVY THIS AFTERNOON. THE THING IS THAT THE THUNDER STORMS DID NOT CLEAR THE AIR AS WAS HOPED AND WE NEED ANOTHER ONE TO DO SO AS IT REALLY IS CLOSE AND MUGGY BUT BECAUSE OF THE RAIN YOU HAVE TO WEAR A JACKET SO YOUG ET BACK HOME ALL SWEATY AMD FEELING AWFUL.

ANYWAY, I AM GOING TO WISH BOTH YOU AND DOUG A REALLY HAPPY EVENING AND WILL SAY GOODNIGHT FROM HERE, (IT IS 8.50PM). HOPEFULLY CATCH UP OVER THE WEEKEND.

WHY DON'T YOU TAKE THE REST OF YOUR SALAD HOME AND HAVE FOR LUNCH THE NEXT DAY......... IT WILL STILL BE GOOD IN THE FRIDGE..... THAT'S SOMETHING I WOULD DO AND MAYBE ADD A SANDWICH WITH IT........ I RELLLY LIKE THE IDEA THAT YOU CAN CHOOSE WHAT YOU GET IN IT.......... THAT'S LIKE OUR SUBWAY...... YOU PICK ALL YOUR OWN TOPPINGS...

DOUG SHOULD BE HOME AROUND 5 PM.......... THEN HE WANTS TO ORDER A PIZZA FOR SUPPER.......... SO THAT IS WHAT WE'RE HAVING.......... MEANING NO COOKING FOR ME....... IT'S TOO HOT ANYWAYS.......

1. THOMAS BECKETT.

2. MAGNA CARTA.

3. BATTLE OF BANNOCKBURN.

OK, THIS ONE IS A LITTLE TOUGH SO I WILL TELL YOU THAT IT IS A 2/1 SPLIT. WHICH WAY IS, HOWEVER, UP TO YOU. TRUE OR FALSE?

1. Robert Helpmann, the evil child catcher in the 1968 movie, 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang', once said, "The trouble with nude dancing is that not everything stops when the music stops".

2. The pursuit of jumping off cliffs into the sea is termed 'tombstoning'.

3. Joan Collins is credited with saying, "Whoever said money can't buy you happiness, simply didn't know where to go shopping".

BEST OF LUCK.


A REALLY PLEASANT DAY TODAY. WENT AND PAID FOR THE BLINDS AND THEN WENT TO THE CAFE. THE LADY WHO WAS IN HOSPITAL WITH A MINI STROKE WAS THERE AND IT WAS SO GOOD TO SEE HER ALL BUT BACK TO NORMAL.

I FELT SORRY FOR THE OWNER'S DAUGHTER THIS AFTERNOON AS BOTH DEE AND I TEASED HER SOMETHING ROTTEN. IT WAS ALL ON GOOD FUN BUT IT DID MAKE THE POOR KID BLUSH. SHE IS WORKING IN THE CAFE TO GET SOME EXTRA MONEY DURING THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS. AS HER MUM SAID, SHE HAS TO LEARN AND ESPECIALLY WORKING IN AN ENVIRONMENT LIKE A CAFE AND SHE ISN'T DOING TOO BAD. SHE HAS A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE SHE CAN SART TO ANSWER BACK THOUGH. THAT ONLY COMES WITH EXEPERIENCE.

IN FACT THE MORNING WAS GOOD BUT THIS AFTERNOON WAS JUST A LAUGH A MINUTE. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU GET THAT TIME WHEN EVERYONE IS JUST ON TOP FORM; THHAT HAPPENED TOFDAY AND THERE WERE THREE OF US SITTING DOWN AND WE HAD THE WHOLE PLACE IN KNOTS. THERE WERE SOME OTHERS AND THEY JUST COULD NOT HELP BUT LAUGH ALONG WITH US BUT THE BEST WAS SAVED FOR THE LATTER END OF THE CAFE WORKING DAY WHEN THE THREE OF US, DEE, MYSELF AND AN 80 YEAR OLD LADY WHO IS PART OF THE FRIDAY CLUB, SEEMED TO JUST LET RIP AND IT WAS JUST SO MUCH FUN. ONE OF THE BEST DAYS I HAVE HAD FOR A WHILE.

NOW I AM JUST RELAXING. ON A FRIDAY I ALWAYS GET AN ITALIAN CHICKEN SALAD AND I DO NOT KNOW HOW MANY THAT DEE THOUGHT SHE WAS FEEDING BUT MUCH AS I LOVE MY FOOD I COULD NOT FINISH IT. I WILL NEED TO TELL HER TO LOWER HER PORTION SIZES. HER SALADS ARE SUCH GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY AS WELL, AS NOWHERE ELSE DOES IT CHEAPER, PLUS YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU HAVE IN IT.

I LOVE FRIDAYS, LOL.

YOU WILL BE GETTING READY NOW FOR DOUG TO GET HOME SO NO NEED TO ASK ABOUT YOUR DAY. I WOULD IMAGINE IT IS GOING TO BE REALLY GOOD FOR BOTH OF YOU. DO ENJOY IT.

IT'S GOOD TO KNOW YOUR FINGERS ARE STARTING TO GET BETTER AT IT..... DOUG'S JOB IS WAITING FOR HIM......... EVEN THOUGH HE CAN'T DRIVE THE BOSS HAS LOTS OF OTHER WORK FOR HIM......... REMEMBER THIS IS A PLACE THAT TOWS CARS TRUCKS ETC..... WHEN SOMEONE IS STOPPED AND DRINKING THEY PICK THE GUYS ARE UP,.. YOU HAVE TO PAY A FEE TO GET IT BACK.......... BUT SOME LET IT GO SO LONG THEY CAN'T AFFORD IT........ SO THE BOSS OWNS IT......PLUS THERE IS ALWAYS WORK TO DO ON THE TRUCKS ETC........ BUT WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE APPEAL.

A COUPLE TIMES IN MY HOME CITY LIGHTENING HIT THE ROOF AND WE HAD A SMALL TORNADO WITH EVERYTHING ELSE....... THEY LOOK UP AND THE ROOF WAS GONE......... NEVER MIND IT HAPPENED TWICE TO THESE PEOPLE...... TALK ABOUT FREAKY......

SOUNDS GOOD YOUR GETTING OUT TO THE CAFE TOMORROW........ WE ALL NEED BREAKS LIKE THAT THROUGH THE WEEK..... IT'S GOOD THAT THE WINDOWS GUYS ARE THERE TO FIX ANYTHING..... SO IT SHOULDN'T BE LONG AND THEY WILL BE TOTALLY DONE.......

1. A LARGE RESERVOIOR.

2. A SMALL WADING BIRD.

3. A BREED OF CAT.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon EXCELLENT AGAIN FOR YOU SHERRY.

ASKING ABOUT RUTLAND WATER BRINGS BACK SCHOOLBOY MEMORIES AS I LEARNT TO SAIL ON THAT PARTICULAR LAKE. MY HOUSEMASTER WAS INTO SAILING AND HE USED TO TAKE A FEW OF US BOYS ONCE A MONTH DOWN TO SAIL A SMALL DINGHY. I CAN STILL OPERATE THE DINGHY TO THIS DAY BIT SADLY DO NOT HAVE THE CHANCE TO GO FOR IT NOW AND THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE TO BUY AND TO MOOR.

I HAVE JAD A REALLY QUIET AND RELAXING DAY AND AS FOR PLAYING THE GUITAR; THE GURLS WERE OUT SHOPPING SO I DID A BIT THEN. EVEN THOUGHT THE FINGERS STUNG A BIT FROM YESTERDAY I ACTUALLY FOUND IT EASIER TO GET THE CHORDS.

YOU WILL BE SO EXCITED AND EVEN A LITTLE RELIEVED TO HAVE DOUG BACK. I GUESS HE STILL HAS A DRIVING BAN THOUGH, WHICH IS A BIT OF A DOWNER. WILL THAT IMPACT ON HM GETTING HIS JOB BACK? HOPE NOT.

AS FOR THE STORMS, I WAS REGAILING THE STORY I READ ABOUT A LADY WHO WAS IN HER BED WHEN LIGHTNING STRUCK. IT DID GO THROUGH THE ROOF AND LITERALLY MISSED HER BY INCHES. I CAN IMAGINE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PRETTY FRIGHTENING.

I CAN REST MY FINGERS TOMORROW AS I AM AT THE CAFE BUT IT WILL BE BACK TO REHEARSING COME SATURDAY AND NEXT WEEK I AM GOING TO SPEND A FULL DAY DOWN AT THE CHURCH HALL WHICH WILL GIVE ME PLENTY OF SCOPE TO MAKE MY MISTAKES AND GET THEM CORRECTED WITHOUT RFEALLY DISTURBING ANYBODY.

ALTHOUGH I DID NOT GO CAMPING, I AM GOING TO KEE MY PROMISE TO THE RANGERS AND MARY HAS AGREED TO TAKE ME TO THE LODGE NEXT WEEK SO I CAN DELIVER THEM A CHOCOLATE CAKE AND WISH THE HEAD RANGER ALL THE BEST FOR HER FORTHCOMING WEDDING. THEN WE HAVE THE WINDOW PEOPLE COMING BACK. I WAS TRYING TO OPENVA VENT INVTHE BATHROOM WINDOW AND IT SNAPPED RIGHT OFF. ALL OF THE OTHERE WINDOWS ARE FINE AMD TALK ABOUT QUICK SERVICE. ONE PHONE CALL TO THE COMPANY AND THEY ARE SENDING SOMEONE OUT NEXT WEDNESDAY TO FIT A NEW VENT FOR US.

THE BLONDS PERSON CAME TODAY TO MEASURE UP AND THE ORDER IS PLACED. IT WILL TAKE A COUPLE OF WEEKS FOR THEM TO BE MADE AND DELIVEREED BUT ONCE THEY ARE IN THE SHOP JOHN WILL COME STRAIGHT OUT AND FIT THEM FOR US. I KNOW THE GUYS IN THE SHOP WELL AS THEY ARE THE FIRST SHOP IN THE MALL WHERE THE CAFE IS AND WE SEE THEM ALL OF THE TIME. JUST BY USING THE CAFE I HAVE GOT TO KNOW SO MANY OF THE SHOP OWNERS AND MANAGERS. ALL USEFUL CONTACTS FOR LATER ON.

THAT IS IT FROM ME. YOU ARE NOW FULLY UP TO DATE WITH THE McGRORY HOUSEHOLD. SUCH EXCITING LIVES WE LEAD, LOL.

HAVE A WONDERFUL EVENING AND LOOK FORWARD TO TOMORROW AND SHARING YOUR PIZZA AGAIN. emoticon

1. Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV)

2. Johannes Vermeer

3. Iraq


MY QUIZ IS SOMEWHAT DIFFERRENT TO WHAT I NORMALLY GIVE YOU BUT IT IS NOT TOO DIFFICULT. ALL ABOUT CRIMINAL'S EXCUSES.

1. A mythical person who appears in many defences is the 'BHS'. Diane Downs, who shot her three children in an unsuccessful attempt to hold on to her married lover, is probably the most famous to invoke the BHS defence. What does BHS stand for in this case?

Brave Hawaiian Surfer
Big Hungarian Steeplejack
Bushy-Haired Stranger
British Home Stores
2. In 1990, in a California triple murder trial, Christopher Box and Manuel Flores blamed each other for the murder of three people, in a classic TODDI defence. What does this stand for?

The Outcast Dingos Did It
The Other Dude Did It
The Owls Didn't Do It
The Other Didn't Do It

3. In the 2009 Academy Award winning film, 'Milk', Josh Brolin played this assassin, Dan White. During White's trial, a reporter coined a neat phrase that has remained ever since. It could perhaps be summed up as 'a little cake did it and ran away'. What was the neat phrase?

The Kit Kat defence
The fairy cake defence
The Jaffa cake defence
The Twinkie defence

BEST OF LUCK.

I WILL BE GOING TO THE SHED PROBABLY TOMORROW AS I NEED TO PRACTICE THE RECORDER TUNES. THE GUITAR IS NOW ACCEPTABLE IN THE HOUSE APPARENTLY. HAVING SAID THAT I FEAR THAT THE GIRLS WILL GET FED UP EVENTUALLY OF JHEARING THE SAME TUNES OVER AND OER, BU I HAD MY FIRST REHEARSAL TOSAY AND BY ARE MY FINGERS LOOSE AND FLABBY AND MY WRIST SO STIFF. I NEED TO HARDEN UP THE FINGERS AND MAKE THEM AGIE AGAIN PLUS LOOSED OFF THE WRIST SO THAT I CAN KEEP GOING. THE GOOD THIG IS THAT IHAVE NOT FORGOTTEN HOW TO ACTUALLY PLAY THE INTRUMENT.

FROM 1AM LAST NIGHT WE HAD THUNDER AND LIGHTNING ANDD IT KEPT GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES. WE JAD GUYS TRYOMG TO DO SOME SIDEWALK REPAIRS AND THEY HAD TO KEEP DIVING FOR THEIR VEHICLE BECAUSE OF THE TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS. THIS AFTERNOON MATY AND TRISH WENT TO BINGO. THEY MANAGED TO PLAY THE FIRST HALF OF THE SESSION BUT THEN A BOLT OF LIGHTNING STRUCK A DRAINPIPE WHICH EXPLODED AND THE EFFECT OF THE DISCHARGE WAS ENOUGH TO KNOW OUT ALL THE POWER TO THE BUILDING. FORTUNATLEY, THERE IS AN EMERGENCY LIGHTING GENERATOR BUT ALL OF THE PLAYERS HAD TO RECEIVE PARTIAL REFUNDS BECAUSE THE LOCAL COMPUTER NETWORK WAS DOWN AS WAS THE TELEPHONE LINES SO NO CON NECTION CULD BE MADE TO OTHER SITES. AS YET WE DO NOT KNOW IF OTHER BUSINESSES WERE AFFECTED BUT I WILL HOPE TO FIND OUT ON FRIDAY.

I DISCOVERED CELTIC WOMAN BY ACCIDENT AND HAVE BEEN HOOKED EVER SINCE. I NOW HAVE 5 OF THEIR CONCERTS TAPED AND I WILL BE WATCHING THE LAST OF THESE THIS EVENING. IT SHOWS HOW ECLECTIC MY MUSICAL TASTES ARE WHEN SING FOLKS AND COUNTRY, BUT LISTEN TO EVERYTHING FROM POP TO JAZZ TO HEAVY METAL AND CLASSICAL. IT JUST DEPENDS ON HOW THE MMOD TAKES ME. WHEN I AM FEELING LAID BACK THEN THE LIKES OF CELTOC WOMAN IS IDEAL EASY LISTENING. IF I HAVE HAD A REALLY ROUGH DAY THEN I WILL LISTEN TO IRON MAIDEN. I JUST LOVE MUSIC AND IT HAS FILLED A GAP IN MY LIFE SINCE I WAS A YOUNG BOY FIRST LEARNING TO PLAY. I HAVE TAKEN MY MUSIC HALF WAY AROUND THE WORLD AND ENTERTAINED PEOPLE WITH IT AS WELL AS MYSELF, AND I GUESS IT WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF WHO I AM. ALTHOUGH HARD AT THE MOMENT, I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT GETTING BACK ON STAGE AGAIN AFTER SO MANY YEARS. YOU NEVER FORGET THE BUZZ AND WHY MSUICIANS NEED TO TAKE DRUGS IS BEYOND ME AS BEING UP THERE IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE IS THE ONLY HIGH YOU NEED.

ANYWAY, I WILL BE BACK LATER ON TO FIND OUT HOW I DID AND HOW YOU FARED. HOPE THE STORMS GO AWAY TODAY AND GIVE YOU A RESPITE.

CHAT LATER.

WEDNESDAYS TRIVIA.....


1. History is written by the winners, so the saying goes. No clearer demonstration of this can be shown than by the remarkable loss to history of several Pharaohs of the 18th dynasty in Egypt. The official list of Pharaohs showed that the line of succession went directly from Amenhotep III to Horemheb, completely erasing which Pharaoh, father of Tutankhamun, from history?

Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV)
Ochus (Atraxerxes III)
Menpehtire (Ramesses I)
Hugronaphor

2. Han van Meegeren was an artist of prodigious skills. However, his original art, though impressive, was out of synch with critical tastes of the time. To challenge the critical barbs, he turned to forgery and successfully duped the critics who had derided him. They accepted paintings such as "Supper at Emmaus" as original works by which Dutch master, famous for such masterpieces as "The Girl with the Pearl Earring"?

Frans Hals
Rembrandt van Rijn
Gerard ter Bosch
Johannes Vermeer

3 . Colin Powell told the UN he'd found them. Tony Blair told the UK parliament that he had evidence of their existence. Yet, despite this being used as the pretext for an invasion and a war that cost tens of thousands of lives, the UN inspector Hans Blix could find no evidence of these weapons of mass destruction in which Middle Eastern country?

Syria
Iran
Iraq
Saudi Arabia

I FIGURE IT WAS TIME TO GIVE YOU A HISTORY QUIZ.......... GOOD LUCK MAC.

WELL I GUESS YOU WILL BE GOING TO THE SHED A FEW TIMES THIS WEEK..... JUST HOPE IT DOESN'T POUR RAIN....... THAT'S NEAT ABOUT YOUR NEW NEIGHBOR'S UNCLE COMING DOWN NEXT YEAR......... IT WILL BE FUN GETTING YOU ALL TOGETHER FOR A NIGHT OF MUSIC....

WE HAVE RAIN AGAIN TODAY......... IT STARTED LAST NIGHT AND HASN'T STOPPED....... SO IF YOU EVER GET WHAT WE'VE HAD YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY........ I CAN HANDLE RAIN BUT THIS GETS CRAZY WHEN IT'S EVERY DAY NOW STARTING INTO IT'S 3RD WEEK........

YOUR REALLY GETTING INTO THAT CELTIC WOMEN CONCERT LATELY.... I SAY IF YOU ENJOYED THE MUSIC AND IT LIFTS YOU UP....... GO FOR IT.

I'M GOING SHOPPING SHORTLY........... SO I MAY BE LATE GETTING BACK IN HERE.....

SHERRY, HAVING LIVED IN A HOUSE FULL OF WOMEN FOR MOST OF MY ADULT LIFE I HAVE KIND OF GOT USED TO THE FACT THAT I CANNOT WIN IN ANY GIVEN SITUATION, LOL.

I HAVE AGREED THAT I WIK DO THE GUITAR ONLY IN THE HOUSE. THE RECORDER WOULD REALLY DRIVE THEM NUTS AS IT CAN GET REASLLY ANNOYING AFYTER A WHIE OF LISTENING TO THE SAME TUNES OVER AND OVER AND IT IS A LOUD INSTRUMENT TO BOOT, SO I HAVE SAID I WILL DEFINITELY BE USING THE SHED TO REHEARSE WITH THAT INSTRUMENT. THE SAME WITH THE BOHRAN AS THE DRUM IS ALSO ERALLY LOUD, ALTHOUGH I CAN TAMPER IT A LITTLE. FORTUNATELY, MY NEW NEIGHBOUR KNOWS MY SORT OF MUSIC REALLY WELL AS HIS UNCLE IS A FORMER PROFESSIONAL FOLK SINGER WHOSE MUSIC I GREW UP LISTENING TO. IN FACT HE IS DUE OVER HERE TO VISIT MEXT YEAR I BELIEVE AND MY N EIGBOUR AND I HAVE ALREADY AGREED AN EVENING OF MUSIC WITH HIM. REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT WHEN IT HAPPENS.

YES, I CAN IMAGINE YOU WILL BE FED UP WITH ALL OF THE THUNDER AND RAIN. I HAVE JUST CAUGHT THE TAIL OF THE REVISED FOERCAST AND WE ARE DUES SOME RAIN FOR MOST DAYS DURING THE COMING WEK. WHETH3R THAT MATERIALISES WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE BUT IT DEFINITELY SENSIBLE TO CANCEL THE CAMPING.

RE THE APPLES; I HAVE PRUNED BUT I RECKON THE BIGGEST THING IS THAT IHAVE NOT BEEN GIVING THEM ENOUGH WATER, SO TTHHAT WILL BE RECTOFIED IN THE HOPE THAT I CAN GET THEM TO GROW. I WAS SPEAKING TO THE HGARDENER TODAY AND THAT WAS WHAT HE WAS SSAYING TO ME. WE O NOT HARVEST JUST YET SO THR I A LITTE TIME LEFT. FINGERS CROSSED.

JUST FINISHED WATCHING YET ANOTHER CELTIC WOMAN CONCERT. I AM SLOWLY GETTING A COLLECTION OF THEIR CONCERTS AND IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THEY HAVE EVOLVED OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN GOING.

THAT IS ME, THOUGH, FOR THIS EVENING. AM ABOUT TO LOG OUT OF THE COMPUTER AND HIT THE HAY AS I FELL ASLEEP IN THE CHAIR EARIER ON WHCIIH TELLS ME I NEED SOME RESTFUL SLEEP.

HOPE YOUR EVENNG IS A RELAXING ONE. GOODNIGHT SHERRY. SWEET DREAMS.

OH OK YOU CAN ONLY BE IN THE HOUSE IN THE MORNINGS...... WHAT IF TRISH STAYS HOME....... DO YOU STILL HAVE TO BE OUTSIDE.......... WHAT ABOUT MARY WORKING EVERY DAY........ LEAVING ONLY TRISH HOME... I'M SURE THE THUNDER AND HARD RAIN WILL DRIVE YOU NUTS IN THE SHED......... I'M SURE IF IT DOES RAIN THE GIRLS WILL GIVE IN AND LET YOU COME INSIDE..... LOL....

SORRY ABOUT LAUGHING.......... I JUST FIND THE WHOLE THING FUNNY........ THE GIRLS ARE THE RUN OF THE HOUSE MOST DAYS THAT'S FOR SURE........... MARY GOES OUT AND DOES THINGS AND WHEN SHE TELLS YOU IT'S TOO LATE FOR YOU TO CHANGE YOUR MIND...... LOL...... GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS......... GET USE TO IT MAC.

WELL IT'S NOT CHEAP TO GET THE OUTSIDE OF A HOUSE PAINTED........ ALSO PAINT IS NOT THAT CHEAP NOW A DAYS..... SO YOU MAY BE PICKING UP LOTS OF PAINT...... THINK A COUPLE DAYS TO GET IT DONE........ THEY SHOULD HAVE THE FIRST COAT ON THE 1ST DAY AND 2ND COAT THE NEXT DAY....... PLUS YOU HAVE TO HOPE FOR CLEAR WEATHER......... DON'T WANT THEM PAINTING AND IT RAINS...

JUST LET ME SAY WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE RAIN......... WE'VE HAD THUNDERSTORMS ALMOST EVERY NIGHT FOR 2 WEEKS...... THE SUN WAS SHINNING THIS MORNING AND IT'S TURNED DARK AND YOU CAN HEAR THE RUMBLE ALREADY....... IT'S ONLY EARLY AFTERNOON......

WITH YOUR APPLE TREE YOU NEED TO PRUNE IT EACH YEAR IF YOU WANT BIG APPLES.

IT'S TIME I'M GOING TO MAKE SUPPER............. THEN GO UPSTAIRS AND RELAX WHILE IT RAINS OUTSIDE.

IT'S 2016..

1. STANFORD WHITE.

2. ASSASSINATION OF JOHN F. KENNEDY.

3. JAMES EARL RAY CONFESSED TO THE CRIME BUT OLATER RECANTED.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ANOTHER SUPER QUIZ FOR YOU SHERRY.

OK, FIRST OFF I CAN BE INSIDE BUT ONLY FOR THE MORNING SO FAR AS MARY WILL BE OUT AND I AM NOT SURE THAT TRISH WILL NOT BE GOING WITH HER TOMORROW. ALSO, IF THERE IS A LOT OF THUNDER AND RAIN ETC.I WILLBARELY BE ABLE TO HEAR MYSELF THINK IN THE SHED. THE ONLY THING I MIGHT GET DONE IS SOME MORE MUSIC WRITING AND I BADLY NEED TO GET THE GUITAR OUT.

DO NOT YET KNOW WHEN THE PAINTER IS COMING. HE IS GOING TO GIVE US A CALL THIS EVENING AND WILL LOOK TO SEE WHEN THERE IS A GAP IN HIS DIARY. WE WILL BE GETTING THE EXTERIOR WALLS PLUS THE PORCH AND ALL OF THE EXTERIOR WINDOW LEDGES DONE. THE GUY THAT HAS BEEN SELECTED WASS THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS UP FRONT ABOUT THE COSTS AND WAS THE CHEAPEST ALSO. THE NEAREST QUOTE TO HIM WAS ANOTHER £200 PLUS WE HAD TO GET THE PAINT. SINCE WE ONLY HAVE A SMALL TERRACED PROPERTY IT SHOULD ONLY TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS AND THAT IS THE SECOND DAY TO PUT A SECOND COAT OF PAINT ALL OVER.

AS FOR THE WEATHER; WE ARE NEEDING SOME RAIN. ONLY TWO OF MY APPLE REES HAVE PROUCED THIS YEAR AND THE APPLES ARE SO SMALL. I WILL HAVE TO REALLY WATER THEM WELL IN THE HOPE THEY WILL GROW A BIT BEFORE HARVESTING.

AM GOING TO WATCH SOME TV SO WILL BE A COUPLE OF HOURS. BACK LATER.

TUESDAYS TRIVIA...........


1. This murder may have been the first to hold the title of Crime of the Century for the 20th century. On June 25, 1906, Harry Thaw shot and killed this architect on the rooftop theatre of the former Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Daniel Burnham
Louis Sullivan
Stanford White
Frank Lloyd Wright

2 . According to a 1999 poll by Zogby International, which of these events did most Americans consider the Crime of the Century?

assassination of John F. Kennedy
Tate murders
Watergate burglaries
Lindbergh kidnapping

3 . In a 1999 poll, Americans voted the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in third place for Crime of the Century. Which of these facts about the King assassination is true?

James Earl Ray confessed to the crime but later recanted
the murder weapon was never found
James Earl Ray was sentenced to death
James Earl Ray was arrested the same day of the murder

GOOD LUCK MAC.......... I THINK THIS WILL BE MUCH EASIER THAN YESTERDAY.

MAC'S QUIZ.....

1.............. SOUL FOOD.

2............ POP-TARTS.

3.............PRINGLES.

WELL AT LEAST YOU GOT A BIT MORE DONE FOR THE CONCERT.....SO IT SOUNDS LIKE THE GIRLS ARE LETTING YOU STAY INSIDE TO DO THESE THINGS........ WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SHED.....

ISN'T THE GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL HAVE THOSE GRADES LIKE A REGULA B.B.Q.... I KNOW THOSE GRILLS ARE NOT CHEAP....... SOUNDS LIKE MARY GOT A GOOD DEAL...

SO HOW LONG DO YOU THINK IT WILL TAKE BEFORE THE GUYS CAN COME OUT AND PAINT......... THEN WHAT WALLS ARE YOU GETTING DONE.......... AND HOW LONG DO YOU THINK IT WILL TAKE....... I'M SURE THEY WILL HAVE TO COVER EVERYTHING IN PLASTIC FIRST...... BUT IF THEIR PROFESSION IT SHOULDN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL..

OUR WEATHER IS NUTS TOO........... SUNNY THIS MORNING BUT THUNDERSTORMS FOR LATER IN THE AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...... I STILL HAVE TO WATER EVERYTHING ON MY FRONT DECK....... THE RAIN DON'T HIT IT............ THE VEGGIES GET ALL THE RAIN AND THEY HAVE BEEN FLOODED...........WE'VE BEEN GETTING OUR SHARE OF HAIL ALSO...

OKAY I NEED TO GO OUT AND CHECK WHAT NEEDS WATER........... OUR TEMPS HAVE BEEN HIGHER THAN USUAL............. TALK TO YOU LATER MAC.


IT'S 2016..

YOU LIVE AND LEARN SHERRY. I WAS NOT CONFIDENT ABOUT THESE SO I WILL NOW FILE THAT AWAY FOR USE LATER ON.

NOW FOR A QUIZ ON MY FAVOURITE SUBJECT - FOOD. THIS ONE IS ABOUT FOODS OF THE 1960's.

1. Which cuisine, first named in the 1960s, focuses on foods traditionally eaten by African-Americans, especially in the U.S. South?

Down home cooking
Soul food
Pit BBQ
Field greens

2. In 1964, Post introduced a new food product called "Country Squares". However, a competitor was more efficient in getting their product on shelves, taking over this pastry niche: which brand was this?

Toaster Strudel
Nutri-Grain Bars
Maple Bars
Pop-Tarts

3. In 1967, Proctor & Gamble addressed consumer complaints about broken and stale snacks sold in air-filled bags by producing what snack food?

Slim Jims
Sun Chips
Pringles
Ritz Crackers

BEST OF LUCK.

THE GIRLS DECIDED TO GO OUT THIS MORNING SO I HAD TO STAY DOWNSTAIRS AS WE WERE EXPECTING A COURIER TO COME. IN THE END HE DID NOT SHOW UP UNTIL 4.20PM. NOT HAPPY AS IT WAS A MORNING WASTED.

THIS AFTERNOON I DID MANAGE TO GET THE LYRICS SORTED PLUS THE CONCERT PROGRAMME TWEAKED AND I MA NOW SATISFIED WITH IT. I ALSO TRIED PLAYING ONE OF THE TUNE SETS ONT HE RECORDEER AND BOY M I RUSTY, LOL. A LOT OF REHEARSING TO COME ON THAT ONE. I HAVE TOLD THE GIRLS THAT I WILL BE REHEARSING TOMORROW SO THEY ARE PREPARED.

MARY BOUGHT A NEW HEALTH GRILL. IT IS BASICALLY LIKE A GEORGE FOREMAN EXCEPT THAT THIS ONE CAN ALSO BE FULLY OPENED AND TURNED INTO AN ELECTRIC GRIDDLE. AM LOOKING FORWARD TO TRYING IT OUR NEXT TIME I EAT STEAK AS THERE IS NO NEED FOR ANY OIL BECAUSE OF THE SURFACE OF THE PAN. IT WAS IN A SALE AND HAD COME DOWN IN PRICE SIGNIFICANTLY SO WE GOT A REAL BARGAIN.

AS I MENTIONED YESTERDAY, I DID NOT REALLY HAVE TOO MUCH OF A SAY IN GETTING THE EXTERIOR OF THE HOUSE DONE. THE GIRLS HAD MADE UP THEIR MINDS SO IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. JUST A MATTER OF BOOKING THE CHAP TO COME AND DO IT.

WE HAD THE GARDENER IN TODAY AND WHAT A DIFFERENCE. HE HAD A NEW GUY WITH HIM AND THEY OTH DID THEIR USUAL STERLING JOB. THAT IS IT NOW FOR THE NEXT 3 WEEKS EXCEPT FOR KEEPING EVERYTHING WATERED. HAVING SAID THAT, THERE WILL BE NO NEED TO WATER THIS EVENING ANYHOW. THE THUNDERSTORMS THAT HAVE BEEN FORECASTED ARE TILLL ON THEIR WAY BUT ACCORDING TO THE MET OFFICE THEY WIL BE TORRENTIAL IN NATURE AND COULD PRODUCE SOME FLASH FLOODING, NOT TO MENTION THE IMPENDING HAIL STORM. HAIL IN JULY, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT?

THAT'S IT FOR NOW. CHAT A LITTLE MORE LATER ON.

HAVE A SUPER DAY SHERRY.

SHERRY, I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA ABOUT ANY OF THESE. I WILL TRY TO READ THE CLUES IN THE QUESTIONS BUT THEY ARE ALL GUESSES.

1. FLAGS.

2. MUSCULAR.

3. A PERSON WHO ENJOYIS TRIVIAL MATTERS.

YES, THEY ARE OLDIES, LOL. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon A GREAT START TO THE WEEK FOR YOU.

IF THE WEATHER HAD BEEN HOT ALL WEEK I COULD IUNDERSTAND IT BUT IT HAS ONLY STARTED TO GET HUMID AND WARM AGAIN TODAY AND EVEN THEN THERE WAS WATER IN THE AIR ALTHOUGH IT DID NOT OUT AND OUT RAIN. NOW IT IS JUST STICKY. AFTER TOMORROW THE FORECAST IS FOR IT TO COOL DOWN AGAIN AND THE RAIN TO COME BACK. THAT IS UNTIL IT CHANGES AGAIN, LOL.

I HAVE LITERALLY JUST GONE AND FETCHED MY LAUNDRY OUT OF THE DRIER AND IT IS NEARLY 9PM. IT IS AWAY NOW BUT I STILL HAVE THE IRONING TO DO, WHICH I WILL GET AROUND TO EVENTUALLY, LOL. SO MUCH FOR RELAXING. IN FACT I HAVE ONLY JUST SAID HELLO TO MARY AND SHE HAS BEEN IN THE HOUSE SINCE 7PM! HOWEVER, NO MORE THIS EVENING. I DO NOT JHAVE TO GET UP SO EARLY TOMORROW SO I CAN AFFORD TO AKE ANOTHER HOUR OR SO BEFORE EVENING THINKING OF TURNING IN. SO NOW I WILL DEFINITELY BE RELAXING AND AM GOING TO WATCH A CELTIC WOMEN CONCERT AS THAT ALWAYS RELAXES ME. IT IS DEFINITELY AN EASY LISTENING NIGHT RATHER THAN A HEAVY METAL ONE.

OH, AND WHAT DID I TELL YOU ABOUT A DONE DEAL ON THE EXTERIOR OF THE HOUSE? WHEN I WENT DOWNSTAIRS THE DECISION HAD ALREADY BEEN MADE. THE OTHER THING IS THAT THE GIRLS WILL PRPOBABLY NOT BE IN WHEN THE CHAP CALLS TO MEASURE UP FOR THE WINDOW BLINDS SO I HAVE TOLD THEM THAT IF THEY CANNOT STAY IN FOR JUST A OCUPL EO F HOURS THEN DO NOT BLAME ME FOR THE COLOUR CHOICE. WHATEVER I CHOOSE THEY WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH, AND I HAVE ALREADY SEEN A LOVELY LIGHT COLOUR THAT I NOT ONLY WOULD LOVE TO GO WITH BUT ONE I THINK WILL GO WITH OUR DECOR. TOUGH IF THEY DISAGREE.

AS FOR EVERY OTHER DAY WHEN I AM NOT IN THE SHED; I WILL STILL BE OUT OF THE WAY BECAUSE THE COMPUTER IS IN MY BEDROOM SO THEY WILL STILL NOT SEE ME, LOL. I HAVE ALL OF THE SONGS TYPED UP BUT NPW HAVE TO PRINT 3 COPIES OF EACH OFF AND PUT THEM INTO PLASTIC ENVELOPES AND INTO A BINDER. I HAVE WRITTEN ONE MUSIC SCORE OUT BUT HAVE A REALLY TOUGH SET TO DO TOMORROW AS WELL AS SOME OTHER PIANO STUFF THAT I KNOW MY MINISTER IWLL NOT KNOW. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT I AM DOING THIS FROM MEMORY AND I HAVE NOT PLAYED FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. LUCKILY I DO HAVE A KETTLE IN MY ROOM SO I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE COFFEE, WITHOUT HAVING TO GO DOWNSTAIRS, (THANK GOODNESS, LOL). I KNOW I AM GOING TO GET FRUSTRATED AT SOME POINT SO IT IS AS WELL I AM OUT OF THE WAY, LOL.

WILL POP BACK TO SEE HOW I DID BUT OTHERWISE THAT IS ME. HOPE YOU HAVE A SUPER EVENING SHERRY. CATCH UP AGAIN TOMORROW.

The Shirelles
Petula Clark

2. 1970s: Which former teen idol sang this, "the way you hold me not too tight, the tender way you kiss goodnight"?

David Cassidy
Donny Osmond

3. 1990s: Which Canadian singer sang this, "once more you open the door, and you're here in my heart"?

Shania Twain
Alanis Morrisette
Celine Dion
Sheryl Crow

WE GOT THREE KEYS BUT THAT JUST MEANS ONE EACH. WE NEED A SPARE PLUS WE WANT TO GIVE OUR ELDEST SON A KEY FOR EMERGENCIES. IT IS GOOD YOUR LANDLORD HAS A SPARE SO IF YOU DO GET STUCK YOU UKNOW THAT YOU HAVE SOMEONE YOU CAN GO TO. AND YOU CANNOT BEAT GOOD OLD FASHIONED FISH AND CHIPS. IT IS A TREAT THAT WE DO STILL GO FOR FROM TIME TO TIME.

YES, IT IS A REALLY BUSY TIME FRO ME JUST NOW. IN A WAY IT IS FORTUITOUS THAT I AM NOT CAMPING. TOMORROW IS A DAY ON THE COMPUTER PLUS WRITING OUT THE MUSIC SCORES. WEDNESDAY IS A REHEARSAL DAY FOR ME. ON THURSDAY WE HAVE A COMPANY COMING TO MEASURE UP FOR WINDOW BLINDS AND THEN FRIDAY I WILL BE AT THE FRIDAY CLUB, (IT IS THE ONE DAY I HAVE OFF THIS WEEK). SATURDAY IS BAKING DAY AND SUNDAY IS CHURCH, WHICH BRINGS ME AROUND TO A WEEK COME TODAY. EVEN TODAY I WENT INTO TOWN BUT MANAGE A QUICK UP OF COFFEE AND A SANDWICH ONLY AS I HAD TO GET A BUS TO GO TO THE SUPERMAKET I HAD ALREADY GONE TO WHAT YOU WOULD CALL A DOLLAR STORE TO BUY SOME FOLDERS AND SOME DOUBLE SIDED TAPE PLUS WENT TO THE BANK. THIS AFTERNOON I HAD A LOAD OF LAUNDRY TO DO AND THAT IS NOW IN THE MACHINE. I ADMIT THAT I ATE LUNCH OUT WHILST WAITING FOR THE BUS HOME JUST TO ENSURE I GOT A MAIN MEAL. IT WILL BE SANDWICHES FOR MY SUPPER. THIS US BEFORE I EVEN GET TO KNOW WHAT MARY REQUIRES OF ME, LOL.

I SWEAR THERE IS A PLOT TO SPEND ALL OF MY MONEY. NOW WE HAVE THE MAJORITY OF THE INSIDE DECORATION DONE PLUS ALL OF THE NEW FURNITURE WE NEED, PLUS NEW WINDOWS, THE GIRLS HAVE SAID THAT LOOKING AT THE EXTERIOR IT LOOKS SO SHABBY SO WE NEED QUOTES TO GET IT PAINTED! SO THEY HAVE GONE AHEAD AND STARTED THE PROCCESS. OK, THE EXTERIOR DOES LOOK A LITTLE 'DIRTY' AND ESPECIALLY AS QUITE A FEW OF THE SATE OWNED HOUSES HAVE JUST HAD AN EXTERNAL REFURBISHMNET SO LOOK LOIKE NEW. WE WILL SEE HOW MUCH IT WILL COST BEFORE I AM COMMITTING MYSELF TO ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE ALTHOUGH I HAVE A FEELING IT IS A DONE DEAL. I CAN SEE THE ARGUMENTS FOR THIS COMING FROM MARY ESPECIALLY ALREADY, LOL.

APART FROM ANYTHING ELSE, HOUGH, THE WEATHER IS GOING TO TAKE A TURN FOR THE WORST. TOMORROW WE ARE DUE TO GET A BIT OF A HEAT WAVE, THE TEMPERATURES FORECASTING IN THE HIGH 20s IN SCOTLAND AND UP TO 35°C IN PARTS OF THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. HOWEVER, THIS HAS ITS CONSEQUENCES FOR US IN SCOTLAND. AROUND THE AREA I WOULD BE CAMPING THE FORECAST FOR TUESDAY EVENING AND MOST OF WEDNESDAY IS FOR A LOT OF LIGHTNING, THUNDER STORMS AND RATHER LARGE HAIL STONES! THE FORECAST FOR A WEEK TODAY PLUS THE TUESDAY MORNING I WOULD BE COMING HOME IS NOT GOOD AND THERE IS A HIGH POSSIBLITY OF RAIN. HAVING A TENT WHICH WEIGHS 7KG DRY I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT WOULD WEIGH WET! NO, WHEN REHEARSING I WILL STOCK TO THE GARDEN SHED. IT IS WARM, I HAVE LIGHT AND I CAN EVEN USE MY CAMP COOKER IF I WISH TO WORK THROUGH LUNCH AND MAKE COFFEE.

FINALLY, WHILST AT THE SUPERMARKET I WAS ABLE TO SPEAK TO ONE OF THE COMMUNITY LIAISON WORKERS AND SHE HAS SAID THAT THERE SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM WITH PROVIDING US WITH TEA AND COFFEE PLUS A RAFFLE PRIZE. SHE IS GOING TO GET HER BOSS TO CONFIRM THAT TO ME WHEN SHE GETS BACK FROM HOLIDAY, BUT I KNOW HER BOSS VERY WELL AND SHE HAS NEVER SAID NO TO ANY CAUSE SHE CAN HELP WITH SO I THINK WE CAN TAKE THIS AS A GIVEN. THEY WILL ALSO LOOK TO COME ALONG ON THE EVENING ITSELF TO ASSIST THE HELPERS AND VOLUNTEERS WITH SERVING THE REFRESHMENTS AND RUNNING THE RAFFLE. THE CAFE OWNER HAS ALSO SAID HE WILL DONATE LUNCH FOR TWO AS A RAFFLE PRIZE AS WELL SO THESE ARE POSITIVE RESULTS CONSIDERING THAT OVER THER WEEKEND I WAS VOTED DOWN AND TOLD THAT I HAD TO CANCEL GETTING IN THE CATERERS BECAUSE IT WOULD WORK OUT TOO EXPENSIVE, ALTHOUGH WHAT THE LADIES OF THE CHURCH WISH TO DO IS A RISK. THEY WANT TO ASK FOR DONATIONS OF CAKES AND STUFF FOR SANDWICHES AND THEN MAKE IT ALL UP ON THE DAY. I HAVE WISHED THEM LUCK AND TOLD THEM STRAIGHT THAT NOW THEY ARE WISHING TO GO THIS ROUTE THEN I WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. THEY CAN ORGANISE THIS NOW FOR THEMSELVES AND WE WILL SEE WHAT SORT OF RESPONSE THEY GET.

THAT IS IT FOR THE DAY REALLY. I AM STILL WORKING ON MUSIC AT THE MOMENT BUT AM ABOUT TO STOP AND JUST RELAX FOR THE REST OF THE EVENING. HOPEFULLY YOU ARE HAVING A MORE RELAXING DAY TODAY AS YOU HAVE NOT EXACTLY BEEN IDLE YOURSELF. JUST PLEASE BE CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT CROSS THE LINE AND OVERDO THINGS.

WILL CHAT AGAIN LATER.

I'M HAPPY TO HEAR THE WINDOWS ARE IN AND LOCKS ARE SORTED.... BY THE SOUNDS OF THINGS THE GUYS THAT DID THE JOB DID A REALLY GOOD ONE AND ALSO FIXED UP THE POST BOX............ WE'RE WAITING HERE TO SEE IF OUR MAIL SERVICE IS GOING ON STRIKE.......... IT COULD HAPPEN ANY DAY SO WE'RE READY IF IT DOES...... I WOULD HAVE TIPPED THE GUYS TOO AFTER A JOB WELL DONE.....

WE HAVE A KEY EACH FOR THE HOUSE BACK AND FRONT DOOR....... AND A EXTRA ONE IN CASE....... OUR LANDLORD ALSO HAS ONE AND IF I LOCKED MYSELF OUT HE'S RIGHT ACROSS THE ALLY EVERY DAY CAUSE HE OWNS THE BUSINESS.......AS FOR THE ALARM IT WOULDN'T WORK FOR YOU........ I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS NO GOOD IF YOUR DOWNTOWN OR NOT AT HOME........ WE HAVE A FEW DIFFERENT KINDS OF THOSE ONE IS IF YOU FALL THEY WILL CALL..... AND SEND SOMEONE OUT.... I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY WOULD KNOW THAT A PERSON FALLS.... THEY ARE VERY EXPENSIVE...

YOU SURE HAD A BUSY DAY....... THAT'S GOOD THAT YOU SCORED A BIG BOOST FOR THE FUND RAISER CONCERT IN OCTOBER........ THE WAY TIME HAS BEEN GOING 2 MONTHS IS NOT THAT LONG........ IT WILL BE HERE AND HOPEFULLY EVERYONE IS READY,.... HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE HELPING WITH THE MUSIC THAT DAY.......... DO YOU PICK YOUR OWN SONGS.......

I'VE BEEN OUTSIDE ALL DAY.......... I FERTILIZED ALL THE POTS WITH FLOWERS......... NOW IT'S A BIT HOT SO I DRANK LOTS OF WATER WHILE THE SUN BEAT DOWN ON ME..... I HAD TO WIPE MY FACE SO MUCH........ I WAS POURING SWEAT........... FERTILIZING IS NOT WATERING WITH THE HOSE.... I USE THE HOSE TO FILL THE BIG JUG UP THEN PUT SOME FERTILIZER IN IT THEN FILL EACH POT UNTIL THE WATER RUNS OUT THE BOTTOM......SO I HAVE TO FILL THE JUG UP ABOUT 4 TIME..... SOME TIME THIS WEEK I'LL FERTILIZE THE VEGGIES......... OH BY THE WAY.......... I'M GOING TO TAKE PICTURES OF MY VEGGIES IN POTS...... JUST TO SHOW PEOPLE HOW FAR ALONG THEY HAVE ALL COME... I WILL LET YOU KNOW ONCE I POST THEM..... I'VE EATEN 4 CUCUMBERS....... LOTS OF PEPPERS....... JUST WAITING FOR THE TOMATOES THAT ARE HANGING TO TURN RED.....

I WENT TO THE DRUGSTORE TO PICK UP MY MED'S ...... I GO EVERY SATURDAY........ ANYWAYS THIS PLACE RIGHT UP THE BACK ALLY HAS BEEN THERE ALL SUMMER........ THEY COOK AND BREAD THEIR OWN FRESH COD...... I'M NOT A FISH EATER...... IT HAS TO BE DEEP FRIED WITH GOOD BATTER........ SO I DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY....... TWO HUGE PIECES OF FISH WITH HOME MADE FRESH CUT FRIES..... COLESLAW AND TARTAR SAUCE....... I TASTED A LITTLE PIECE OF FISH WHEN I GOT HOME...... AND IT'S SO GOOD....... I'M REALLY IMPRESSED... THEY DO THIS ALL IN A KIND OF SMALL SCHOOL BUS FRESH FISH THEN THEY BREAD IT AND DEEP FRYING ALL WHILE YOU STANDING THERE WAITING...... IMPRESSIVE FOR SURE.

I'M HAVING IT FOR SUPPER................. TIME TO GET OFF THE COMPUTER........... IT'S SO HOT IN THE HOUSE I'M GLAD I DECIDED TO BUY THE FISH INSTEAD OF COOKING IN THIS HEAT......

HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY........... WILL BE WATCHING FOR YOUR SPARK MAIL TOMORROW. emoticon

IT IS emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon AS WELL FOR YOU SHERRY. A NICE WAY TO END THE WEEK.

I HAVE BEEN OUT FOR MOST OF HTE DAY TODAY. HAD TO GO TO THE SUPERMARKET FIRST THING THIS MORNING AND THEN AT 1145AM MY MINISTER COLLECTED ME PLUS TWO OTHERS AND E WENT TO THE INDUCTION OF OUR NEW SYNOD MODERATOR. WE DID NOT GET HOME UNTIL GONE 5PM. TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW BIG A THING THIS IS, THE SYNOD MODERATOR IS THE BIG CHEESE OVER ALL OF OUR CHURCH IN SCOTLAND, SO IS PERHAPS THE EQUIVALENT OF AN ARCHBISHOP IN THE ANGLICAN CHURCHES. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OUR CHURCH AND OTHERS IS THAT WE ELECT A HEAD OF CHURCH WHEREAS OTHER CHURCHES TEND TO APPOINT. OUR HEAD OF CHURCH CAZN SERVE A MAXIMUM OF 12 YEARS ONLY AND THEN EITHER HAS TO MOVE ON OR RETIRE, ANOTHER BIG DIFFERENCE. IT IS NOT A POSITION FOR LIFE. EVEN IF THE CHAP IS YOUNG ENOUGH TO MOVE ON HE CAN ONLY SERVE AS A MODERATOR FOR TWO TERMS AND THEN HAS TO RETIRE, THE SECOND BEING IN A DIFFERENT COUNTRY. OUT LAST MODERATOR CAME TO US FROM BEING MODERATOR OF THE WELSH SYNOD AND HAS NOW RETIRED FROM ACTIVE CHURCH LIFE.

I ALSO MANAGED TO SCORE A HUGE BOOST FOR OUR FUND RAISING CONCERT IN OCTOBER. WHEN YOU THINK, THE CONCERT IS 2 1/2 MONTHS AWAY BUT WITH HOLIDAYS ANS SUCH THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO IT IS RIDICULOUS. ANYWAY, I WAS HOPING TO GET AN ACCORDIANIST BUT WE WERE NOT SURE ABOUT IT. IN STEAD I SPOKE TO A CHAP I KNOW WHO WAS AT THE SWRVICE THIS AFTERNOON AND WHO PLAYS A MEAN FIDDLE AND HE HAS AGREED TO COME ALONG AND HELP US OUT. I AM SO PLEASED AS I HAVE PLAYED MUSIC WITH HIM SO DO KNOW HOW GOOD HE IS. SO ALL I NEED NOW IS A FEMALE SINGER AND THAT WILL BE THE LINE UP COMPLETE.

HOPE YOU HAVE HAD A PLEASANT DAY AND NO MORE STORMS.

1. K.F.C.

2. BLONDE.

3. HOOVER DAM.


TRUE OR FALSE?

1. 1970s Music: Roberta Flack teamed up The Spinners to sing their chart-topping hit song "Then Came You" in 1974.

2. National Landmarks: The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is as wide as it is tall--630 feet (192 meters).

3. The Super Bowl: Miami Dolphins safety Jake Scott was the first defensive player to win the Super Bowl MVP Award.

BEST OF LUCK.


THE WINDOWS ARE IN AND THE LOCKS AR SORTED. THE GUYS A TUALLY STAYED LATER THAN THEIR SCHEDULED FINISH TIME SO THAT THEY COULD GET IT ALL DONE. THEY EVEN ERECTED ANOTHER POST BOX FOR US AS OUR ONE WAS A LITTLE LSHABBY. WE WERE CHEEKY ENOUGH TO ASK AND THE FITTER KINDLY OBLIGED. IN FACT, THE FITTER AND HIS MATE WERE SO PROFESSIONAL AND THE BOSS WAS A BIT OF A PERFECTIONIST AND HE WOULD NOT MOVE ON UNTIL HE HAD GOT A WINDOW IN TO HIS OWN SATISFACTION. I FIND THIS SO REFRESHING AS TIME IS NOT A CONSIDERATION BUT THE CUSTOMER IS. IN FACT, THEY DID SUCH A GOOD JOB THAT I GAVE THEM A GRATUITY ON TOP OF THE INVOICE TO GET THEMSELVES A DRINK. I RARELY DO THIS BUT THEY TRULY DESERVED IT. WE DID HAVE A BIT OF A SURPRISE AS THE LIVINGN ROOM WINDOW WAS NOT QUITE WHAT WE THOUGHT WE HAD ORDERED BUT IN FACT WE ALL LIKE IT SO NO PROBLEM THERE. WE HAVE ORDERED ANOTHEWR COUPL EO F KEYS FOR THE FRONT DOOR AS WE WANT TO GIVE ONE TO OUR ELDEST SON AND HAVE A SPARE. THREE WERE THREE PROVIDED SO THAT MEANS WE EACH HAVE ONE. THEY ARE EXPENSIVE3 BUT THEN THE DOORS ARE SECURITY DOORS AND I THINK I TOLD YOU THAT SHOULD ANYONE BE ABLE TO BREAK IN THROUGH THEM THE COMPANY WILL GIVE YOU £1000. THE KEYS CAN BE CUT BY A SPECIALIST LOCKSMITH BUT WE DO NOT HAVE ONE THAT I KNOW OF LOCALLY. IN FACT THE LOCKS ARE REALLY WEIRD AS THEY DO NOT LOCK CONVENTIONALLY. ALSO THE DOORS ARE WIDER BUT ALSO HEAVIER AND ARE 6 BAR FOR ADDED SECURITY. WHILST DOUBLE GLAZING WILL NEVER GET RID OF ALL NOISE, WE HAVE ALREADY FOUND THAT THE NOISE LEVEL HAS DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY. WITH THE OLD WINDOWS THE TRAFFIC THROUGH THE VILLAGE QOULD OFTEN WAKE ME UP BUT THIS MORNING I COULD HAVE SLEPT ON AS I DID NOT HEAR A THING.

THE LADY CAME TO TELL ME ABOUT THE ALARM SYSTEM IN CASE OF EMERGENCY BUT I WILL NOT BE TAKING IT UP AS IT REALLY IS OF NO USE TO ME. FOR A START IT IS ONLY FOR USE INSIDE THE HOUSE AND GARDEN. I THOUGHT IT CONTAINED A GPS AS THAT IS WHAT I HEARD, BUT APPARENTLY I WAS MISINFORMED. THEN THERE IS THE FACT THAT EVVEN IF I AM AT HOME AND GET STUCK THE PEOPLE THAT ATTEND ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LIFT. IF I WAS TO FALL THEY HAVE AN AIR CUSHION TO HELP ME UP BUT UNDER HEALTH AND SAFETY RULES THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PHYSICALLY LIFT A PERSON. IT TOOK THREE PEOPLE TO LIFT ME OUT OF THE CHAIR ON BOTH OCCASIONS SO SOMEONE TURNING UP ON THEIR OWN AND NOT EVEN BEING ALLOWED TO DO ANYTHING LEAVES ME MUCH INT HE SAME POSITION AS I AM ALREADY, AND THE SERVICE IS ONE YOU PAY FOR AS WELL. IT IS A GOOD SERVICE FOR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AND HAS SAVED LIVES BUT IT IS JUST NO GOOD FOR ME.

AS FOR CAMPING I AM STILL UNDECIDED. I WILL BE WAITING UNTIL SUNDAY TO MAKE MY MIND UP AS THE WEATHER FORECAST SHOULD BE MORE ACCURATE. FOR THE MOMENT ASSUME I AM GOING BUT I WILL SEND YOU A SPARK MAIL TO CONFIRM ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

WILL POP BACK LATER. HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR SHOPPING TRIP.

FRIDAYS TRIVIA.......


1. It is sometimes said that a particular restaurant no longer uses the word "chicken" to describe their food. This is not true; they use the word chicken, and they use chicken in the food. What restaurant was the basis of these lies?

Long John Silver's
Chick-Fil-A
KFC
Popeye's



2. Some people have been influenced by the lie that a certain hair color will no longer exist within a few centuries. It is said that because the hair color gene is recessive, most other hair colors will be passed on to a child, and this hair color will not exist in 2202. What hair color will supposedly die off within 200 years?

Blonde
Black
Brunette
Red



3. Some people tend to believe that there are bodies of dead workers poured in the cement of a famous landmark. It is said that working conditions were so horrible that many died and fell in the cement; and other workers did not care enough to pull the bodies out. This, of course, is false. Which structure is said to contain dead bodies?

Pyramid of Giza
Berlin Wall
St. Louis Arch
Hoover Dam

SOME URBAN LEGENDS......... GOOD LUCK MAC.......


OH NOW I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.......... SOME TIMES SOMEONE ELSE CAN DO AND THEY WILL MAKE EXTRA ROOM........ IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE ALL THE UPDATED KITCHEN GADGETS......

I HOPE THE GUYS FINISHED THE WINDOWS BY NOW........... DID YOU FIND OUT ANYTHING ABOUT THE LOCKS YET......

I'VE SEEN THE CUCUMBERS AGAINST THE WALL......... BUT IT WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY THE ONES THAT CLIMB....... YOU CAN GET THEM AND YOU HAVE TO USE STAKES TO KEEP THEM CLIMBING OR CAGES...... WITH MY TOMATOES THEY GET THIS TINY GROWTH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BRANCH AND I NIP THEM OFF SO I WILL GET BIGGER TOMATOES......

I'M GOING SHOPPING SO MIGHT BE LATE GETTING BACK HERE......... BUT BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW HOW THE WEATHER IS AND IF YOUR GOING TO GO CAMP.

IT'S 2016..

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon DIDN'T THINK YOU WOULD HAVE TOO MUCH OF A PROBLEM SHERRY.

TRISH AHS DECIDED SHE WANTS TO REDO THE DRAWERS AND CUPBOARDS AND MOVE THINGS AROUND A LITTLE BIT. SO FAR WHAT SHE HAS DONE ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE AND IS CREATING MORE SPACE. WE DO NOT HAVE A VERY LARGE KITCHEN. IN FACT IF THERE ARE TWO OF US IN IT AT THE SAME TIME THEN WE GET IN EACH OTHER'S WAY. I HAVE OFTEN SAID THAT IF WE WON THE LOTTERY AND WERE ABLE TO MOVE I WOUL DHAVE TWO KITCHENS; ONE FOR MARY AND TRISH AND ONE FOR MSELF. THE GIRLS THINK I AM JOKING.....

THE GUYS WILL BE COMING BACK TOMORROW AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO GET THE DOWNSTAIRS COMPLETE. THERE IS A CONTINGENCY MORNING ON SATURDAY BUT IT SHOULD NOT BE NEEDED UNLESS THE WEATHER REALLY IS TOO BAD FOR THEM TO DO ANYTHING.

THOSE UMBER BOTTLES I MMENTIONED CAN STILL BE BOUGHT OVER HERE FROM SPECIALIST SUPPLIERS BUT ONLY GARDENERS OF PRIVATE MANOR HOUSES WOULD EVER DREAM OF USING THEM. THEY ARE BASICALLY ON OPEN ENDED GLASS TUBE AND THEY DO WORK. ANOTHER TRICK I HAVE SEEN IS TO GROW THE CUCUMBERS AGAINST A WALL USING THE HEAT THAT IS STORED IN THE BRICK TO HELP THE GERMINATION AND GROWING PROCESS. ONCE THE BUDS STARTED TO FORM THE GARDENER WOULD CUT OUT SOME OF THE EXTRA BRANCHES SO THAT THE PLANT CONCENTRATED ITS ENERGY ON THE CUCUMBER. I SAW THIS YEARS AGO ON A GARDENING PROGRAMME. STRANGE HOW THINGS STAY IN YOUR MEMORY BANKS.

ANYWAY, I MA OUT OF HERE NOW. I HAVE A FEW EMAILS TO ATTEND TO AND THEN I AM GOING TO HIT THE HAY. IT IS STILL RELATIVELY EARLY BUT I FEEL REALLY TIRED FOR SOME REASON.

KEEP SMILING SHERRY AND HOPE YOU HAVE A RELAXING EVENING. WILL LET YOU KNOW ABOUT CAMPING TOMORROW.

MAC'S QUIZ.

1...................TIMOTHY MC-VEIGH..

2.............. O.J. SIMPSON.

3........... CHARLES MANSON.

OK SO YOU SEEN THE PICTURES.......... I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE........ USUALLY YOUR WAITING TO SEE THEM...... AND THIS TIME I DIDN'T PUT THEM ON MY PAGE.... SO I FIGURED JUST POST IT WITH MY POST........ I LIKE THE IDEA OF A BOTTLE...... THAT WOULD KEEP THEM STRAIGHT BUT IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A WIDE MOUTH JUST TO MAKE SURE IT CAN GROW WIDE TOO.

I REMEMBER THE NEIGHBOR THAT HAD TO COME TO THE VILLAGE BECAUSE OF BEING THROWN OUT OF OTHER PLACES....... BUT SHE;S BEEN THERE LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW HOW TO ACT.... ANYONE KNOWS WHEN YOU LIVE IN A VILLAGE AND SMALL PLACES LIKE THAT YOU WANT TO BE FRIENDLY AND COURTEOUS TO YOUR NEIGHBORS... MOST PEOPLE LIKE THAT THINK THEIR BULLY'S AND TRY TO PUSH OTHERS AROUND.......... IT'S TOO BAD ONE BAD APPLE SPOILS THE BUNCH.



I AGREE THE GUYS PUTTING THE WINDOWS IN ARE JUST THAT....... IT'S THE COMPANY THAT WILL HAVE TO FIX IT AND RIGHT AWAY..... THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULD HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE LOCKS...... SO ARE THEY DONE INSTALLING.........

I'VE TRIED TO GROWING FUCHSIA MORE THAN A FEW TIMES....... I LIKE THEIR LOOK AND COLORS...... I THINK THERE BEAUTIFUL IN HANGING POTS......... BUT MINE DIE TOO....... DON'T KNOW WHY......... I GOT ONE A COUPLE YEARS AGO AND IT WAS IN A HANGING POT.......... IT WAS SO FULL AND THE POT WAS BIG........ I FELL IN LOVE...... THEN IT DIED ON ME TOO.......... NO MORE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN TRISH WANTS TO REJIG THE KITCHEN........... MAYBE IT'S MOVING THINGS AND SPRING CLEANING AT THE SAME TIME........... EVERYTHING ENDS UP IN A DIFFERENT PLACE....... BUT IF IT MAKES MORE ROOM THAT'S GREAT........ I HAVE A BIG KITCHEN LOTS OF CUPBOARDS LOTS OF COUNTER SPACE.....

WELL YOU WILL HAVE TO LET ME KNOW IF YOUR GOING CAMPING FOR SURE.......... GOT TO RUN AND WATER.............. CHAT LATER.

David Koresh
Marshall Applewhite
Charles Manson

BEST OF LUCK.

SORRY ABOUT THE LACK OF RESPONSE SHERRY. I REMEMBER WRITING A SCREED ABOUT HOW IN VICTORIAN TIMES THEY USED CUCMNER BOTTLES TO GROW THEIR CUCUMBERS IN SO THAT THEY WOULD GROW STRAIGHT AND BE OF UNIFORM GIRTH. PROBLEM IS THAT I CANNOT FIND IT. I DO REMEMBER ASKING YOU HOW ON EARTH YOU FAILED TO NOTICE IT AS A CUCUMBER THAT SIZE WOULD BE HARD TO HIDE I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT. IT REALLY IS A SUPERB SPECIMEN AND I WILL WAGER IT TASTED GOOD AS WELL, LOL. ALSO, THOSE PEPPERS LOOK DELICIOUS SO YOU HAVE DONE REALLY WELL. JUST HOPE THE REST OF YOUR CROPS DO AS WELL AND THAT YOU REALLY HAVE PLENTY FOR THE TABLE.

I WILL NOT TELL YOU WHAT WE THINK OF OUR NEIGHBOUR SHERRY. AS LONG AS SHE GETS WHAT SHE WANTS SHE IS OK. SHE THINKS SHE IS A BULLY BUT AS SOON AS YOU STAND UP TO HER SHE BACKS DOWN REALLY QUICKLY AND APOLOGISES. SHE INITIALLY GOT MOVED TO THE VILLAGE BECAUSE OF COMPLAINTS FROM HER FORMER NEIGHBOURS. WHY THEY MOVED HER HERE IS ANYONE'S GUESS AS SHE IS NOT A VILLAGE TYPE PERSON BUT RATHER A TOWNIE. I GUESS IT WAS A MATTER FOR HER OF TAKE IT OR GET NOWHERE. I THINK SHE HAS ONE FRIEND ONLY IN THE VIALLGE AND HE IS ALSO A JERK. WE NEARLY CAME TO BLOWS ONE TIME AND HE HAS AVOIDED ME EVER SINCE. ANOTHER CASE OF THE BULY NOT LIKING IT WHEN BEING STOOD UP TO. IT IS SAD AS THE VILLAGE USED TO BE A COMMUNITY BUT NOW THERE IS NO SENSE OF COMMUNITY SPIRIT AND IT REALLY IS NOTHING MORE THAN A COMMUTER PLACE NOW.

WOW, I HOPE IT DOESN'T TAKE TWO WEEKS TO GET THIS PROBLEM SORTED. THE ELECTRICIANS WEREN'T HERE TODAY BUT WE SUBSEQUENTLY DISCOVERED THAT THE PROBLEM WAS NOT PROPERLY FIXED YESTERDAY AND A GENERATOR HAD TO BE LEFT SO THAT THERE WAS POWER TO THE HOUSE.

THE WINDOW GUYS WERE HERE QUITE EARLY ON THIS MORNING AND WORKED AWAY GETTING ALL OF THE UPSTAIRS WINDOWS IN PLACE. THEY DID A REALLY SUPER JOB BUT WE HAVE A PROBLEM IN THAT THE LOCKS DDO NOT WORK SO THE COMPANY IS GOING TO HAVE TO GET THAT ISSUE SORTED BEFORE WE PART WITH ANY MONEY. WE WILL MENTION IT TO THE GUYS WHEN THEY COME BAXK TOMORROW BUT I AM NOT SURE THEY KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THINGS LIKE THIS. THEY ARE INSTALLERS AFTER ALL AND NOT LOCKSMITHS.

SPENT THIS AFTERNOON FINISHING OFF THE RUBBISH BURNING AS TOORROW WE ARE EXPECTING WHAT YOU HAD TODAY, NAMELY A STORM AND SOME HEAVY RAIN. I FEEL FOR THE WINDOW GUYS AS THEY WILL BE PLAYING AGAINST THE WEATHER AND ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY COME TO PUTTING THE LIVING ROOM WINDOW IN AS THAT IS THE BIG ONE. I ALSO REPLACED THE FUCHSIA IN THE MEMORIAL BITOF THE GARDEN. MARY FOUND A LOVELY ONE ON HER SHOPPING TRIP AND THAT IS NOW PLANTED OUT. JUST HOPE THIS ONE SURVIVES.

TRISH HAS DECIDED SHE WANTS TO REJIG PARTS OF HTE KITCHEN AND SO SHE HAS BEEN DOING THAT. I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT AND WHAT SHE IS DOING WILL CREAT MORE OF A SENSIBLE LAYUT, PARTICULARLY INSIDE THE CUPBOARDS AND DRAWERS. IF SHE IS WILLING TO DO IT THEN IT SAVES ME A JOB.

THAT IS IT REALLY. NOTHING ELSE SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING. I WILL NOT BE GOING TO THE CAFE TOMORROW AS, APART FROM THE FACT I DO NOT FANCY GETTING SOAKED, I HAVE THE MECKS AGENT COMING TO DO AN ASSESSMENT ON ME TO SEE IF I QUALIFY FOR ONE OF THOSE ALARMS THAT YOU CARRY AROUND WITH YOU. I WILL PHONE THE CAFE TOMORROW AND LET THEM KNOW SO THAT THEY DO NOT WORRY SOMETHING ELSE IS WRONG.

JUST A PRE-WARNING SHERRY. I WILL BE LOOKING AT THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR NEXT WEEK AND IF OK I WILL BE AWAY CAMPING. SO TOMORROW WILL BE THE LAST QUIZ DAY UNTIL AFTER I GET BACK.

ANYWAY, YOOU HAVE A GOOD DAY AND WILL CHAT LATER.

OKAY YOU SEEN THE PICTURES ON OMA PAGE........... BUT THE ONES I POSTED ON THE CHALLENGE WE PICTURES I TOOK WHEN EVERYTHING ME AND OMA GOT AT THE GREENHOUSE PLANTED............... WHAT ABOUT MY FOOT LONG CUCUMBER....... DID YOU CHECK THAT OUT........ I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY VEGGIE THAT BIG...... AND PLANTED IN A POT NOT THE GROUND.

WE GOT ANOTHER STORM LAST NIGHT............ I'M SO TIRED OF ALL THIS RAIN AND LOUSY WEATHER.......... MY PLANTS NEED SUNSHINE AND HEAT TO PRODUCE NICE JUICY BIG VEGGIES.

THAT NEIGHBOR GOT LUCKY THEY GIVE HER ANY POWER AT ALL.......YOU'D THINK AFTER BEING TREATED SO GOOD SHE WOULD CHANGE HER TUNE AND BE A BETTER NEIGHBOR........

THEY DID ALL THAT ON MY BLOCK WHERE THEY WERE FIXING A WATER PIPE... AND HAD TO PUMP MY WATER IN CAUSE THEY HAD TO TURN THE WATER OFF TO THE HOUSE.. THEY TORE UP PART OF THE ROAD....... WE HAD A BIG HOLE RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE...... NO ONE COULD DRIVE DOWN SO WHEN I WENT FOR GROCERY'S THE TAXI DRIVER HAD TO DROP ME IN THE BACK ALLY......... THEY WERE JACKHAMMERING EVERY DAY FOR TWO WEEKS....... MY BEDROOM IS RIGHT IN THE FRONT SO I COULD HEAR IT LOUD AND CLEAR........

IF THEY LEFT THEIR TRUCKS YOU CAN BET THEY WILL BE THERE TODAY ALREADY........ SO I HOPE MARY PARKED WHERE SHE CAN GET OUT AND HOPEFULLY THERE IS ROOM FOR THE WINDOW GUYS TO GET IN...

WELL I GOT LOTS TO DO.............. TALK LATER.

1. MARTIN MARINER AEROPLANE.

2. GLOWING 'WHITE WATER'.

3. TRUE.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon AS KNOWLEDGABLE AS EVER SHERRY. I CERTAINLY DID NOT GET ALL OF THESE.

JUST TO CLARIFY, I DID COMMENT ON YOUR FRONT YARD BUT NOW I REMEMBER IT WAS ON OMA'S SPARK PAGE. SO SORRY ABOUT THAT. IT IS WHAT I WAS MEANING WHEN I SAID YOU HAD IT ALL LOOKING SO NICE AND NOW THE STORMS HAVE CAUSED YOU MAJOR UPSET AFTER ALL OF THE HARD WORK YOU PUT IN.

SPEAKINGOF STORMS, WE HAD A MOTHER OF A RAINSTORM STARTING ABOUT 20 MINUTES AGO AND IT HAS JUST FINISHED. THE RAIN WAS COMING DOWN THAT HEAVY IT WAS BOUNCING OFF THE GROUND. IT HAS NOW FINISHED, FORTUNATELY. THE ELECTRICIANS HAD TO ABANDON WORK AND RUN BACK TO THEIR VEHICLE.

WE WERE NOT ON RESTRICTED POWER. IT WAS OUR JUNCTION THAT WAS USED TO BYPASS TEH SYSTEM SO THAT OUR NEIGHBOUT AT LEAST HAD LIGHT AND WAS ABLE TO COOK A MEAL. NOTHING ELSE. NO TV OR POWER SHOWER. SHE DID ACTUALLY SAY THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING THE GUYS TO DO THAT BUT, AS MARY SAYS, THERE IS NO WAY WE WOULD SEE ANYONE WITHOUT POWER IF AT ALL WITHIN OUR POWER. WE ARE NOT LIKE HER OR HER HUSBAND.

IT SEEMS AS IF THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN SORTED BUT THERE IS NOPW A NBIG HOLE IN THE PAVEMENT WHERE THE GUYS HAD TO DIG TO GET AT THE MAINS SUPPLY. MARY WAS SPEAKING TO THEM AND IT ALL TURNED OUT TO BE DOWN TO A PLASTIC CONNECTION. AMAZING THAT SOMETHING AS MUNDANE AS THAT HAS CAUSED SUCH CHAOS NOT TO MENTION THE EXPENSE OF DIGGING UP THE PAVEMENT AND NOW REPLACING THE TARMAC OVER IT.

AS FOR THE WORKMEN BEING OUT SO EARLY; WE HAD INTIMATED THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE HAD WE BEEN TOLD ABOUT THE MAINTENANCE SO THAT EVERYONE COULD HAVE BEEN PROPERLY PREPARED AS EVEN NOW THERE ARE STILL BITS OF ROAD THAT HAVE NOT HAD HARD CORE ON THEM BECAUSE OF VEHICLESS BEING PARKED. IT TURNS OUT THAT OUR COUNCIL IS TO BLAME AS THEY DID NOT EVEN TELL THE MAINTENANCE CREWS UNTIL YESTERDAY MORNING, THE FIRST DAY OF THE MAINTENANCE. THEN THEY WONDER WHY THERE IS AN OVERSPEND EACH YEAR. HAVING THE CREWS COME OUT TWO AND THREE TIMES IS COSTING A FORTUNE. IF WE HAD KNOWN THE VEHICLES WOULD HAVE BEEN MOVED AND THE HARD CORE COULD HAVE GONE DOWN IN ONE VISIT THUS SAVING A LOT OF MONEY.

NOW MARY IS WONDERING IF SHE SHOULD PARK OUR CAR ON THE ROAD SO THAT THERE IS A SPACE FOR THE WINDOW GUYS TO GET IN. THEY ARE COMING JUST AFTER 9AM AND THAT IS A LOT LATER THAN THESE GUYS STARTING, IF INDEED THE MAINTENANCE CREW IS COMING BACK TOMORROW. IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY AND NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. WHOEVER IS IN CHARGE OF THESE PROJECTS NEEDS SACKING AS THEY CERTAINLY DO NOT KNOW ORGANISATION. THE OTHER THING THAT IS GOING TO CLASH IS THE FACT THAT THE BIN MEN COME TOMORROW TO EMPTY THE TRASH SO THEY WILL HAVE TO TRY AND GET THEIR DUSTCART UP THE ROAD. THE GIRLS WILL ACTUALLY BE OUT TOMORROW MORNING AS THEY NEED TO DO THEIR SHOPPING FOR NEXT WEEK. I AM JUST HOPING THAT MARY WILL NOT ONLY BE ABLE TO GET OUT BUT CAN FIND A SPACE TO PARK UP WHEN SHE GETS BACK. WHAT A NIGHTMARE.

ANYWAY, AM GOING OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD TO POST THERE AND THEN I WILL BE CALLING IT A NIGHT. HOPE YOUR STORMS ARE NOW OVER AND YOU CAN BEGIN TO RELAX A LITTLE. HAVE A GOOD ONE SHERRY.

2....... YOU'LL BREAK YOUR MOTHER'S BACK.

3............... IF YOU DROP A BROOM HOLD YOUR NOSE AND JUMP OVER IT THREE TIMES.

THAT'S CRAZY YOUR STILL ON RESTRICTED............ THEY WERE THERE YESTERDAY TAKING CARE OF THAT....... PLUS YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO BLOCK YOUR DRIVEWAY....... AND THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER TO BE QUIET SOME PEOPLE ARE STILL SLEEPING AT THAT TIME OF THE MORNING....

WE HAVE THAT BIN PROBLEM TOO WITH PEOPLE GOING THROUGH THE GARBAGE BINS OUT BACK......... LOOKING FOR FOOD AND BOTTLES THEY CAN RETURN........ I'VE SEEN A FEW GUYS DOING THAT.......

MAC YOU KEEP NOT READING ME TELLING YOU TO GO TO THE CHALLENGE THREAD AND SCROLL DOWN TO ONE OF MY POSTS WHERE I POSTED MY BIG CUCUMBER...... AND A BIT FURTHER DOWN I POSTED SOME OF MY FRONT YARD PICTURES........ SO HAVE A LOOK.......... THE FRONT YARD YOU MAY HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN FURTHER......... BUT CHECK THEM OUT.

AS FOR SPARK CHANGING THINGS AGAIN.......... THEY DO THIS ALL THE TIME AND NOT LET US LEADERS KNOW SO WE CAN TELL THE TEAM......... EVERYTHING IS STILL THERE JUST UNDER DIFFERENT HEADINGS.

OK SHERRY. HOPEFULLY THIS ONE WILL BE RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY.

1. According to an old wives' tale, what should you do while passing by a cemetery?

Hold your breath
Pray for all the lost souls
Say 12 'Hail Marys'
Put your thumb on your forehead and yell "Beaver!"

2. According to an old wives' tale, what will happen if you step on a crack on a sidewalk or walkway?

You'll break your mother's back.
You'll meet a man named Jack.
You'll find a money pack.
You'll cry on the way back

3. Three of these are actual superstitions about brooms, but one isn't. Which one is NOT a superstition about brooms.

If you drop a broom, hold your nose and jump over it three times or you'll be poor.
Never take a broom when you move or you'll take the bad luck from your previous home with you.
If you stand a broom in a corner, it will bring a stranger to visit.
If someone is sweeping the floor and sweeps over your feet, you'll never get married.

BEST OF LUCK.


IT TOOK NEARLY ALL DAY FOR THE ELECTRICIANS TO FINALLY UNCOUPLE US BUT THEY HAVE STILL NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND AND REPAIR THE PROBLEM FOR NEXXT DOOR AND SO THEY ARE STILL ON RESTRICTED POWER.

THIS MORNING WAS A BUSY ONE FORME AS I SORTED OUT MY ROOM AND MOVED SOME OF THE CAMPING STUFF OUR OF THE WAY SO THAT I NOW HAVE A BIT MORE SPACE AND THE WINDOW CONTRACTORS CAN HAVE SOME TO SWING AROUND IN. MARY TOOK A MORNING OFF; HER ONLY ONE AGAIN THIS WEEK. THIS AFTERNOON IT WAS ALL HANDS TO THE PUMP. MARY AND TRISH DID SOME MORE SORTING OUT AND MARY HAS TAKEN SOME STUFF TO THE CHARITY SHOP PLUS A LOAD MORE DOWN TO THE RUBBISH DUMP. FOR A LOT O F THE AFTERNOON MARY COULD NOT GET OFF THE DRIVE NECAUSE OF THE ELECRICIAN'S VEHICLES. THEY HAVE NOW GONE BUT I AM JUST HOPING THAT THE WINDOW COMPANY ARRIVE BEFORE THEY DO TOMORROW OR ELSE THERE COULD BE A PROBLEM. MIND YOU, WERE NOT BEST PLEASED THIS MORNING AS THE ROAD MAINTENANCE CREW WERE SHOUTING AND RUNNING THEIR EQUIPMENT AT 6.30AM WHICH IS FAR TOO EARLY EVEN FOR THOSE WHO GET UP AT THAT TIME. THEY ACTUALLY WOKE BOTH MARY AND I FROM A LOVELY SLEEP.

WHILST THE GIRLS WERE BUSY THIS AFTERNOON I WAS OUTSIDE BURNING RUBBISH. IT IS A SAD REFLECTION OF OUR TIMES BUT ANYTHING WITH AN ADDRESS OR IF THERE IS A RECEIPT THAT WE HAVE USED THE DEBIT CARD FOR IT GETS BURNT BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FOUND GOING THROUGH PEOPLE'S BINS AND EVEN THE DUMP TO TRY AND GLEAN PERSONAL INFORMATION. I DID MANAGE TO GET ALL OF THE STUFF BURNT BECAUSE TWICE I HAD TO LEAVE IT BECAUSE OF RAIN, AND THE SECOND SHOWER WAS REALLY HEAVY. THERE IS A LOT OF LOW CLOUD AROUND STILL ALTHOUGH IT IS CURRENTLY DRY.

THAT IS US FOR THE DAY. MARY WILL BE GOING FOR A SOAK IN THE TUB AND I WILL BE DOING LAUNDRY AS MY CLOTHES REEK OF SMOKE. WILL LEAVE THE SHOWER UNTIL JUST BEFORE I GET INTO BED.

HAVE A GOOD DAY, SHERRY. CHAT MORE LATER.

P.S. WHAT IS SPARK UP TO CHANGING AGAIN? ANY IDEAS?

SHERRY, SHAME ABOUT THE FLOWERS. YOU REALLY DID HAVE THAT YARD LOOKING NICE. HOPEFULLY DEAD HEADING THEM WILL ENCOURAGE A SECOND GROWTH.

IF YOU SCROLL DOWN TO MY LAST REPLY OF THE DAY TO YOU YESTERDAY I DID MENTION ABOUT YOUR CUCUMBER AND YOUR PEPPERS. GOOD JOB ON BOTH AND AM GLAD TO HEAR THAT ALL THE VEGGIES HAVE SURVIVED.

NOW YOU NEED TO GO AND PUT YOUR FEET UP. A COUPLE OF HOURS IN THE GARDEN IS ONE HECK OF A WORKOUT.

2. MAURITIUS.

3. MALAWI.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon CANNOT GET YOU WITH ANYTHING LIKE THIS SHERRY. ANOTHER GOOD WIN FOR YOU.

SORRY I AM A LITTLE BEHIND BUT WE HAVE JUST HAD FUN AND GAMES. THE PEOPPLE WHO WERE WORKING ON THE ROAD HAVE DONE SOMET4HING TO THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY AND THE NEIGHBOUR I WAS TELLING YOU ABOUT HAS HAD HERS CUT OFF FOR NO APPARENT REASON. BECAUSE WE ARE ALL NOW ON SEPERATE LOOPS IT IS A MUCH BEYTER SYSTEM SO THAT THE WHOLE VILLAGE DOES NOT GO OUT. ANYWAY, THE ONLY WAY THAT SOME POWER COOULD NE GICEN TO HER OVERNIGHT WAS FOR THE ELECTRICIANS TO JURY RIG A CONNECTION FROM OUR JUNCTION BOX, THROUGH OUR LETTER BOX AND TO HER JUNCTION BOX VIA HER LETTER BOX. I DID ASK IF SHE WAS BEING PUT ONTO OUR ELECTRICITY BECAUSE OF THE EFFECT TO OUR BILLS BUT WAS TOLD THAT OUR MAINS BOX WAS BEING BYPASSED SO NOTHING WOULD CHANGE. SO FOR THE PAST 40 MINUTES WE HAVE HAD OUR ELECTRICITY CUT OFF WHILST THE MEN WERE SORTING IT. IT WILL BE THE SAME TOMORROW WHENEVER THE ELECTRICIANS TURN UP TO DO A PERMANENT JOB. WE WERE SAYING THAT IT IS A GOOD JOB IT HAPPENED NOW IN A WAY AS AFTER FRIDAY THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE. THE NEW FRONT DOOR WILL HAVE BEEN INSTALLED AND THERE IS NO LETTER BOX ON IT. GOODNESS KNOWS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE IF A SIMILAR EVENT HAPPENS. IF ONE WAS BEING REALLY NASTY ONE COULD SAY IT WAS POETIC JUSTICE AND I WISH WE HAD SOMETHING LIKE YOU HAVE HERE AS HIS VEHICLE WOULD HAVE BEEN TOWED A FEW TIMES UNTIL HE LEARNT SOME MANNERS.

IF YOUR YARD IS IN SUCH A MESS YOU MUST HAVE HAD SOME PRETTY POWERFUL STORMS. FINGERS CROSSED THAT EVEREYTHING IS OK AND THAT YO UHAVE NOT LOST ANYTHING. WE HAVE LOST ONE OF THE FUCHSIAS FROM THE MEMORIAL PLOT SADLY SO THAT WILL HAVE TO B RPLACED. IT IS STRANGE HOW OUT OF GOODNESS KNOWS HOW M ANY I HAVE TRID TO GROW ONLY ONE HAS REPEATEDLY BEEN STUBBORN AND COME BACK TO GIVE US SOME GLORIOUS FLOWERS YEAR ON YEAR. IF YOU REMEMBER I HAD OVER 20 AT ONE TIME AND THEY ALL DIED OFF EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE AND WE HAVE HAD THAT NOW FRO THE PAST 12 YEARS. SO I DO WISH YOU THE BEST AS YOU HAD IT ALL SO NICE AND THINGS WERE RALLIY COMING ON WITH THE VEGGIES. I JUST HOPPE THAT YOUR HARD WORK WAS NOT IN VAIN AS THAT WOULD BE A TRAVESTY.

TRISH IS BACK TO NORMAL NOW BUT IT TOOK AGES BEFORE THE NUMBNESS WENT AWAY. SHE SAID THAT SHE WAS GIVEN JIUST THE ONE NEEDLE BUT IT MUST HAVE BEEN A REALLY POWERFUL ONE AS IT LASTED A FEW HOURS. NORMALLY THESE THINGS TEND TO EASE OFF AFTER MAYBE A COUPLE OF HOURS TOPS BUT NOT THIS ONE. THNBKS FOR THE KIND WORDS, THOUGH. WILL PASS YOUR THOUGHTS ON TO TRISH WHEN SHE COMES UPSTAIRS.

THAT S ME FOR THE DAY ALTHOUGH I STILL HAVE TO GO TO THE CHAT THREAD. WILL POP BACK TO SEE IF I GOT YOUR QUIZ CORRECT.

I WILL NOT WISH YOU A SUPER DAY AS SUCH BECAUSE I KNOW YOU WILL BE DREADING WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO BUT I DO WISH YOU A HAPPY ONE AND THAT EVERYTHING TURNS OUT OK.

SEE YOU LATER.

TODAY I ASK YOU TO IDENTIFY THE CELEBRITY FROM THE CLUES. I DID NOT DO VERY WELL OVERALL WHEN I TOOK THE QUIZ BUT I DID GET THESE ONES.

1. You wouldn't call me Shirley, but you'd know me from my movies. "The Naked Gun" (1988), "Spy Hard" (1996), and "Wrongfully Accused" (1998) were just a few after I took flight in "Airplane!" (1980). Oh, and I'm not really Enrico Pallazzo. Who am I?

Mike Myers
Red Skelton
Leslie Nielsen
John Candy

2. Sure, I've faced off against zombies and potential alien invaders, but the real challenge comes from designing clothing. I designed my own wardrobe for "Extinction" (2007). What is my name?

Li Bingbing
Angelina Jolie
Milla Jovovich
Ali Larter

3. At one point, I had two different TV shows; one was a reality TV show about modeling and the other was a talk show bearing my name. All the while I was still modeling myself. Who am I?

Tyra Banks
Heidi Klum
Oprah Winfrey
Kelly Osbourne

BEST OF LUCK.


A DECENT DAY TODAY. VISITED MY GRANDSON WHO IS 10 AND TOOK HIM HIS CAKE. FOR ONCE HE WASS MORE INTERWSTED IN HIS NEW SOCCER STRIP, LOL. NO DOUBT MUM WILL HELP HIM EAT IT AS SHE HAS A SWEET TOOTH.

FELT SORRY FOR TRISH AS THIS MORNING SHE WAS AT THE DENTIST AND COULD NOT EAT HER LUNCH BECAUSE HER MOUTH WAS STILL SO NUMB FROM ANAESTHETIC. SHE FINALLY MANAGED TO GET A DRINK AND EAT A SANDWICH AROUND 3 THIS AFTERNOON.

I THINK I HAVE MENTIONED THE NEIGHBOURSS ON ONE SIDE OF US BEFORE. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHAT THEY ARE LIKE. THE LOCAL COUNCIL IS RESURFACING THE VILLAGE ROAD AND NATURALLY THEY CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH BECAUSE OF PARKED CARS. NOT EVEREYONE HAS A PLACE TO PARK SO THEY HAVE TO PARK ON THE ROAD. OUR NEIGHBOUT DOEA HAVE A SRIVE BUT THE HUSBAND PARKS HI WORKS VAN ON THE ROAD ANYWAY. SO, AS OYU WOULD DO, EVVERYONE MOVED THEIR CARS TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD SIN ORDER TO ALLOWN THE MEN TO HAVE A SYARIGHT RUN ON OUR SIDE. THAT IS ALL EXCEPT OUR NEIGHBOUR WHO, WHEN ASKED BY THE WORKMEN IF HE WOULD MIND MOVING HIS VAN, SIMPLY REFUSED POINT BLANK. DO NOT KNOW THE REASON BUT HE IS BOTH STUPID AND IGNORANT. YOU WOUD HAVE THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE BOTH COURTESY AND COMMON SENSE TO MOVE AS WE HAVE WANTED OUR ROAD RESURFACING FOR AGES SO ARE REALLY PLEASED TO FINALLY BE GETTING IT DONE. HONESTLY, SOME PEOPLE...... (TRISH FOUNND THIS OUT AS THE BIG MACHINE BROKE DOWN OUTSIDE OF OUR HOUSE AND SHE WAS SPEAKING TO THEM ABOUT IT).

TODAY IS THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM AS TOMORROW WE HAVE TO START TO MOVE EVERYTHING SO THAT THE INDOWS ARE CCLEAR FOR THURSDAY. NOW THAT IS REALLY GOING TO BE FUN!

HAVE A SUPER DAY SHERRY AND WILL CHAT LATER.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon HARD TO GET YOU WITH THE MUSIC STUFF SHERRY. I ADMIT THAT WHEN I TOOK THE QUIZ I KNEW 1 AND 3 BUT GUESSED 2. I USED TO LISTEN TO BILLY JOEL BUT CNANOT RMEMBER THIS ONE.

AS FOR THE LIFTING AND STUFF, IT WAS ONLY A MINOR TEST AND I DID NOT PUSH TOO HARD. I JUST HAD TO GET STUFF MOVED SO NOW WAS AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY TO SEE IF MY BACK WOULD TAKE IT. SO FAR, SO GOOD. I WILL NOT BE REALLY POUSHING IT AT ANY COST. EVEN NEXT WEEK I WILL BE TAKING MY TIME WITH SETTING UP CAMP. IT SHOULD TAKE NO LONGER THAT 2 HOURS TOTAL BUT I RECKON IT WILLTAKE ME NEARER 4 AS I TAKE LOTS OF REST BREAKS. IF I DID PUSH MYSELF THEN I WOULD NEVER EXPECTANY SYMPATHY BUT E STILL HAVE LOTS TO MOVE AROUND BEFORE THURSDAY SO I AM AFRAID I WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO GIVE MYSELF A WORKOUT. SO WILL BOTH OF THE GIRLS AND I KNOW THAT TRISH ESEPCIALLY WILL REALLY SUFFER FOR IT. THE WINDOWS AND DOORS ARE BEING PUT IN SO IT IS ALL HANDS ON DECK AS THE GLAZIERS WILL NOT MOVE ANY FURNITURE OR CRTEATE SPACES. THEY ARE NO ALLOWED TO UNDER HEALTH AND SAFETY RULES, WHICH MEANS WE HAVE TO DO IT. IT US WHY WE ARE TAKING THINGS IN STAGES. OKAY, I DID TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SORT MY TINNED FOOD OUT FOR NEXT WEEK, WHICH IS THE HEAVY BOX THAT BROKE ON ME WHEN TRANSFERRING, BUT EVEN WHEN LIFTING THAT I WAS SITTING DOWN AT THE TIME. SO DON'T WORRY. I WILL NOT BE OVERDOING THINGS UNLESS REALLY NECESSARY AND I DO NOT SEE THAT AT THE MOMENT.

I TELL YOU WHAT, SHERRY. YOU SEND US ONE OF YOUR THUNDERSTORMS AND WE WILL SEND YOU SOME OF OUR SUNSHINE. IT IS QUITE UNCOMFORTABLE RIGHT NOW. I AM SITTING IN MY ROOM WITH THE WINDOW OPEN AND STILL I AM FEELING SO WARM AND CLAMMY. ONE OF YOUR THUNDERSTORMS WOULD BE GOOD RIGHT NOW AS IT WOULD REALLY CLEAR THE AIR.

OK, THE CAKES ARE OUT OF THE SANDWICH TINS AND ARE COVERED OVER FFOR THE NIGHT. THE TIME IS PAST 10PM SO I AM OUT OF HERE. JUST THE ONE QUESTION WHICH YOU ASKED YOURSELF. HOW ON EARTH DID YOU MISS THAT CUCUMBER? IN VICTORIAN TIMES CUCUMBERS WERE GROWN IN WHAT TANTAMOUNTS TO OPEN ENDED GLASS TUBES TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE STRAIGHT AND OF PRETTY MUCH EVEN GIRTH SO THAT EVERY SLICE WOULD BE THE SAME FOR THE TABLE. YOURS IS A SUPERB SPECIMEN AND YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF IT. NICE PEPPERS ALSO, BTW.

WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW BUT FOR NOW I WISH YOU A VERY PLEASANT EVENING. GOODNIGHT SJHERRY, SLEEP TIGHT.

1............STEPPENWOLF......... BORN TO BE WILD.

2.................. BILLY JOEL........ BIG SHOT...... I HAVE ALL HIS GREATEST HITS.

3.............. SUPERTRAMP........ DREAMER....... I LIKE THIS ONE A LOT.

I SEEN SOMETHING ON TV ALSO ABOUT FOODS THAT PEOPLE EAT LIKE INSECTS AND WORMS....... THEY DO A LOT OF THIS STUFF DEEP FRIED......... I DON'T CARE HOW THEY TRY TO COVER UP THE TASTE OF BUGS AND STUFF THAT HORRIBLE......I COULD NEVER EAT IT.....

WE HAD ANOTHER THUNDER STORM LAST NIGHT......... I TELL YOU MY PLANT ARE REALLY TAKING A BEATING........ IT'S BEEN STRAIGHT RAIN ALL DAY........... I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS STILL IN A WHEELCHAIR HOW EASY IT IS TO FORGET TO LOCK THE BREAKS AND IT ENDS UP ROLLING......

ARE YOU TRYING TO DO YOUR BACK IN........... WHY WOULD YOU BE PUSHING THINGS THAT MUCH AFTER NOT LONG AGO YOU HAD A BAD TIME WITH IT.... YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN LIFTING A BOX THAT HEAVY......... I WON'T BE GIVING YOU ANY SYMPATHY IF YOUR BACK DOES GO OUT....

WELL IF THE HOSPITAL IS GOING TO KEEP HER YOU KNOW SHE IS NOT DOING THAT GOOD...... THAT'S VERY HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE...... AND SO DANGEROUS...... HEARTACHE WAITING TO HAPPEN.....

BY THE WAY I TOLD YOU TO CHECK OUT THE CHALENGE........ IF YOU SCROLL DOWN YOU WILL SEE MY FRONT YARD....... THEN YESTERDAY I POSTED THE CUCUMBER I FOUND......... MAC IT'S AT LEAST A FOOT LONG AND THICK........ I DON'T KNOW HOW IT HID THAT LONG BECAUSE IT'S SO BIG....... BUT SCROLL DOWN TO A FEW DAYS AGO AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT MY FRONT YARD LOOKS LIKE

GOT TO RUN.......... CHAT LATER.

1. FRIED.

2. TARANTULA SPIDER.

3. CHOCOLATE.

THERE WAS A PROGRAMME ON THE TV NOT LONG AGO ON THIS AND DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A SOCIETY OF EDIBLE INSECT LOVERS IN USA. THE TV PROGRAMME 'THE CAKE BOSS' FEATURED AN ORDER FROM THE SOCIETY FOR A CAKE MADE WITH MEALWORMS IN IT PLUS SOME OTHER DESSERTS CONTAINING OTHER UNUSUAL EDIBLES. SORRY, BUT NOT FOR ME, LOL.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED A THUNDERSTORM TO CLEAR THE AIR. WOKE UP THIS MORNING AND WAS COVERED IN SWEAT. HAD TO WEAR A JACKET GOING INTO TOWN AS IT WAS RAINING AND THEN I SPENT THE REST OF THE DAY WITH IT IN MY BAG AS THE SUN CAME OUT AND IT HAS BEEN DRY EVER SINCE. I DID NOT GET CAUGHT OUT THIS TIME THOUGH AS I PUT MY SUNGLASSES IN MY BACK ANY WAY JUST TO MAKE SURE. MY BACK IS ABSOLUTELY FINE. I AM LUCKY, THOUGH. I HAD JUST PUT MY CHAIR OUTSIDE THE DOOR AND TURNED TTO LOCK UP WHEN THE CHAIR DECIDED TO MOVE AND RUN AWAY DOWN THE RAMP AND ONTO THE ROAD. I MANAGED TO CHASE AFTER IT BUT FOR A WHILE IT WAS TOUCH AND GO AND MY BODY WAS SCREAMING. LUCKILY I WAS FINE BY THE TIME I GOT TO TOWN AND THINGS HAD CALMED DOWN.

I DID PUT MY BACK TO THE TEST THIS AFTERNOON BY TAKING SOME STUFF DOWN TO THE SHED, AND NOT LIGHT STUFF EITHER. ALSO DID A BIT OF SORTING OUT IN THE SHED AS WELL AND ONE OF THE CONTAINERS WAS SO HEAVY THAT IT ACTUALLY BROKE ON ME SO I HAD TO TRANSFER THE STUFF TO ANOTHER ONE NO RESIDUAL EFFECTS SO, FINGERS CROSSED, THINGS ARE LOOKING GOOD RIGHT NOW.

AM HOPING TO GO AWAY NEXT WEEK FOR A WEEK, (19-26 JULY). I GET BACK JUST IN TIME FOR MARY'S BIRTHDAY, (31 JULY). I ALREADY HAVE HER BIRTHDAY PRESENT SO I AM AHEAD OF THE GAME IN THAT RESPECT.

A FOR M Y FRIEND; THINGS ARE STILL UP IN THE AIR. SHE IS IN INTENSIVE CARE AND WAS QUITE POORLY UNTIL YESTERDAY AFTERNOON WHEN SHE SEEMD TO BE A LITTLE BETTER. I AM GETTING THIS SECOND HAND, OF COURSE). APPARFENY, THOUGH, SHE HASS A BIG HURDLE TO OVERCOME. THE RADIOLOGIST WILL NOT SCAN HER BRAIN BECAUSE SHE IS SUFFERING WITH EXTREMELY HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND THE DOCTORS ARE HAVING A RIGHT ROYAL BATTLE TO GET IT DOWN. YESTERDAY IT WAS 156/128 WHICH, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IS AN IMPROVEMENT. SHE HAS TO BE WITHIN ACCEPTABLE PARAMETERS BECAUSE OTHERWISE IT COULD AFFECT THE SCAN AND GOVE A FALSE READING WITH THE BRAIN HAVING AN EXCESS OF BLOOD WHICH COULD MASK WHAT THE DOCTORS ARE LOOKING FOR. SO WE CAN ONLY STILL WAIT AND SEE.

WILL BE LATE IN COMING BACK THIS EVENING AS I HAD FORGOTTEN IT WAS ONE OF MY GRANDSON'S BIRTHDAY'S TOMORROW AND I PROMISED HIM I WOULD MAKE HOM A CHOCOLATE BIRTHDAY CAKE, SO I AM AWAY TO DO THAT NOW. WILL PROBABLY JUST BAKE IT OFF THIS EVENING AND FINISH IT OFF TOMORROW MORNING PRIOR TO VISITING HIM.

ANHYWAY, HERE IS MY QUIZ. AS USUAL ON A MONDAY IT IS MUSIC, BUT I WONDER IF YOU CAN REMEMBER WHO SANG THESE LYRICS?

1. An easy one to start. Who sang this: "Get your motor running, head out on the highway"?

Steppenwolf
Led Zeppelin
Black Sabbath
Cream

2. "You wake up in the morning with your head on fire". Who did it?

John Lennon
Three Dog Night
Billy Joel
Elton John

3. Only true classic rockers will know this one: "Can you put your hands in your head, oh no".

Pure Prarie League
Supertramp
First Class
Animals

BEST OF LUCK. CATCH YOU LATER ON.

HAD A GOOD DAY MYSELF AT THE CAFE, BUT GOT SOME BAD NEWS. TWO OF THE FRIDAY CLUB MEMBEERS WERE ABSENT TODAY AND IT TURNS OUT THAT THE HUSBAND WAS TAKING HIS WIFE TO THE HOSPITAL. IT WAS A PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE TO START WITH BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT SHE HAD SUFFRED A STROKE AND DIDN'T KNOW IT. WE CAN ONLY SURMISE THAT BECAUSE SHE ALSO SUFFERS WITH DEMENTIA, WIRES GOT CROSSED AND IT WAS NOT PICKED UP AT THE TIME. I WILL NOT FIND OUT ANY MORE UNTIL MONDAY BUT I DO NOW THAT SHE HAS TO GO FOR A BRAIN SCAN TOMORROW. SHE IS ONLY 58 YEARS OLD AND A LOVELY LADY, AND HER HUSBAND IS A REAL LIVE WIRE. THIS WILL HAVE HIT HIM HARD.

MY BACK CONTINUES TO IMPROVE AND HOPEFULLY THE WEATHER WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO ALSO. I WENT OUT THIS MORNING IN MY HOODED JACKET AND WITHOUT SUN GLASSES. BIG MISTAKE AS THIS AFTERNOON WAS SO WARM AND THE SUN SO BRIGHT YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT SUMMER HAD ARRIVED, LOL.

AM JUST WATCHING THE NEWS AND I THINK THE WHOLE WORLD HAS GONE MAD. FIRST YOU GET POLICEMEN POINTLESSLY SHOOTING PEOPLE THEY STOPPED AND THEN YOU HAVE SNIPERS KILLING POLICEMEN BECAUSE THEY ARE ANTI-WHITE. SO SAD AND SO UNNECESSARY.

OK SHERRY, I AM OUT OF HERE. HOPE YOU HAD A SUCCESSFUL DAY AT THE SALES. KICK BACK NOW AND ENJOY YOUR PIZZA SUPPER LATER ON.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.
