SHERRY, JUST QUICK ONE AS I WANTED TO TOUCH BASE WITH YOU BEFORE I LEFT.

NOT MUCH TO SAY AS I AM BUSY WITH PACKING AND SORTING ETC. STILL HAVE LAST MINUTE SHOPPING OT DO AND I WAS SURPRISED WHEN I MADE OUT THE LIST OF JUST HOW MUCH STUFF I STILL HAVE TO GET, BUT WHICH I WAS NOT ABLE TO GET BEFOREHAND.

ANYWAY, I HOPE THAT YOU HEAR SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT DOUG AND THAT YOU WILL HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS TO TELL ME WHEN I GET BACK.

ENJOYI Y OUR PLANTING AND I WILL SEE YOU ON 2ND JUNE.

TAKE CARE SHERRY.

SHERRY, FOR SOMEONE WHO IS STUMPED.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YOU WERE NOT FOOLED AND YES, A TERRIFIC ENDING FOR US BOTH.

HAVE JUST BEEN WATCHING SOME OF THE INVICTUS GAMES OPENING CEREMONY WHCIH WE HAVE TAPED ALONG WITH ALL OF THE COVERAGE ITSELF. I ACTUALLY GOT QUITE EMOTIONAL SEEING THESE VETERANS WITH MISSING LIMBS OR PTSD PROBLEMS. I THINK IT BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES OF COMRADES WHOM I SAW EITHER KILLED IN ACTION OR HAVING TO BE INVALIDED OUT WITH MENTAL ISSUES WHICH AT THE TIME WERE NOT RECOGNISED FOR WHAT THEY WERE. MY HAT GOES OFF TO THESE PEOPLE AS THEY HAVE ANOTHER PURPOSE IN LIFE AND HAVE CHANNELLED THEIR PROBLEMS INTO POSITIVES. T HIS IS ONE GAMES WHERE IT REALLY DOE SNOT MATTER ABOUT WINNING OR LOSING. JUST TAKING PART IS ENOUGH.

WENT TO THE CAFE FOR THE WEEKLY MEETING OF THE NEWLY FORMED FRIDAY CLUB. AS USUAL IT WAS HILARIOOUS AND TWO OF THEM, A MAN AND WIFE, SAID THEY WOULD LOVE TO COME OUT AND VISIT ME DURING MY CAMP SO THAT IS A DAY TO LOOK FORWARD TO. JUST NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO FEEDING THE WIFE AS SHE IS A NIGHTMARE APPARENTLY AND REALLY PICKY. I ALSO DID SOME SHOPPING FOR THINGS LIKE KITCHEN TOWELS AND EXTRA GAS BOTTLES AND MANAGED TO FILL TWO BAGS IN THE END WITH BITS AND BOBS, AND NOT ALL FOR THE CAMP EITHER. BY THE TIME I HAD FINISHED I FELT LIKE I HAD DONE A WORKOUT IN THE GYM AND WHEN I WENT BACK TO THE CAFE FOR A POT OF TEA, I WALKED IN WITH THE STICK AS THEY WERE BUSY AND DEE IMMEDIATELY TOLD ME TO SIT DOWN BEFORE I FELL DOWN. STILL, IT KEEPS ME ACTIVE IF NOTHING ELSE, LOL. IT WAS SO FUNNY AS WELL BECAUSE A NEW CUSTOMER CAME IN AND OF COURSE DE AND FUBBY AND MYSELF WERE GOING AT IT HAMMER AND TONGUES TAKING THE MOCKEY OUT OF EACH OTHER AND I THINK HE WILL BE BACK AS HE JUST COULD NOT HELP LAUGHING AND JOINING IN. HE WAS TOLD THAT STRANGER OR NOT THAT IF HE CAME TO THE CAFFE HE WOULD BE ROPED IN. WE EVEN HAD A BIT OF BANTER WITH HIM AS WELL AND TOOK THE MICKEY OUT OF EACH OTHER AS THE WHOLE CAFE DESCENDED INTO CHAOS. LUCKILY BY THAT TIME EVERYONE ELSE HAD LEFT, LOL.

SO IT HAS BEEN A GOOD DAY OVERALL AND I HAVE MADE THE MOST OF BEING LET OUT OF THE CAGE, AS IT WERE. NOW ALL THAT IS LEFT IS A BIT OF SHOPPING FIRST THING TOMORROW MORNING AS I NEED SOME BAKING MARGARINE BECAUSE I HAVE TWO CAKES TO DO THIS WEEKEND, ONE FOR CHURCH AND THE OTHER FOR THE RANGERS. I WILL GO AGAIN ON MONDAY MORNING BUT I THINK IT WILL HAVE TO BE A TAXI BACK AS I AM GOING TO BE LOADED TO THE EXTENT THAT NO WAY COULD I CARRY IT ALL AND GET ONTO A BUS.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT I PHONED THE LODGE WHRE THE RANGERS WORK AND THEY HAVE TOLD ME THAT A CHAP HAD BEEN CAMPING WHERE I CAMP SO THE GROUND WAS DRY AND ALSO THAT I AM GOOD TO GO FOR TUESDAY AS THE SPACE WILL BE EMPTY. THE BAD NEWS IS THAT WE ARE EXPECTING RAIN ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH UNTIL FRIDAY MORNING SO WE WILL HAVE TO GET THERE FAIRLY EARLY TO GIVE ME CHANCE TO GET THE TENT UP IN THE DRY AND GET ALL THE GEAR STOWED SO THAT IT DOES NOT GET WET. THE GOOD NEWS AFYTER THAT IS THAT THE FORECAST IS FOR DRY WEATHER FRO THE ENSUING WEEK AT LEAST.

I DID HAVE AN ANGRY OHNE CLAL TO MAKE THIS MORNING. OUR SHED IS BARELY SIX MONTHS OLD AND ALREADY THERE ARE MAJOR ISSUES SHOWING. THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY IS AWAY ON HOLIDAY BUT HIS SON IS COMING OUT TOMORROW TO SEE FOR HIMSELF. IF THESE ISSUES ARE NOT ADDRESSED THEN THEY CAN TAKE THEIR SHED BACK I GIVE ME A REFUND AS IT IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY. THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEMS STEM FROM WHAT I BELIEVE IS THE USE OF UNSEASONED WOOD BECAUSE SEASONED WOOD DOES NOT SHRINK OR SPLIT AND BOTH IF THESE THINGS HAVE OCCURRED AS WELL AS THE RIGHT HAND DOOR HAS WARPED. IT WILL CERTAINLY SOMETHING I WILL BE SPEAKING ABOUT WHEN THE SON DOES APPEAR.

SO BASICALLY THAT HAS BEEN MY DAY. A BUNDLE OF LAUGHS REALLY AND ONE OF THOSE DAYS YOU WISH YOU COULD BOTTLE.

HAVE STILL TO GO TO THE CHAT AND LOG IN THREADS SO WILL BE AROUND FOR A WHILE YET. JUST IN CASE, THOGUH, I WISH YOU A WONDERFUL EVENING TO COME AND HOPE YOU ENJOY THAT CHANGE TO YOUR REGULAR FRIDAY MEAL.

TAKE CARE SHERRY. HOPE TO SPEAK WITH YOU OVER THE WEEKEND.

NOW A DAYS YOU DON'T SEE MANY PEOPLE CAMPING WITHOUT ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME........ THEY TAKE TV'S COMPUTER OR LAPTOPS...........SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST NOT INTO THAT KIND OF THING.............THEY ARE SO USE TO ALL THESE TECHY THINGS AND CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THEM.....

I DRY MY HERBS THEN FREEZE THEM IN LITTLE FREEZER BAGS........ IT'S GREAT TO JUST BE ABLE TO TAKE ONE OUT AND THROW IT IN YOUR SOUP OR WHATEVER.....I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY TRISH COULD NOT WATER THEM............ THAT'S ABOUT ALL SHE WOULD HAVE TO DO................ I BOUGHT THIS THING THAT YOU STICK INTO THE POT AND IT HAS THIS BIG BUBBLE ON ONE END AND THE PLANT GETS WATERED FOR A MONTH SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT,........... I ONLY GOT TWO OF THEM TO TRY AND SEE HOW THEY WORK....

GREAT IDEA TO PITCH THE TENT IN THE BACKYARD AND LET THE GRAND KIDS CAMP OUT FOR THE NIGHT............. WE USE TO DO THAT ALL THE TIME AS KIDS....... WE HAD SNACKS AND LANTERNS WE USE SLEEPING BAGS AND IT WAS FUN......... AS A MATTER OF FACT WE USE TO LEAVE THE TENT UP FOR WEEKENDS WHEN THERE WAS NO SCHOOL....

SO THIS IS OUR LAST TRIVIA DAY FOR 3 WEEKS.................. HOPEFULLY WE WILL END OF A WIN FOR US BOTH........... I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A MAMMOGRAM TODAY SO INSTEAD OF PIZZA I WILL BE HAVING A CHICKEN SUB.............. CHAT LATER MAC.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon NO PROBLEMS TODAY SHERRY.

AS I THINK I MAY HAVE SAID BEFORE, I AM A NERD OR A GEEK OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL ME, LOL. I JUST LOVE HISTORY UP TO A POINT ALTHOUGH AM NOT A MODERN HISTORY BUFF. HAVING SAID THAT MY CURRENT TOME IS A BOOK ABOUT SCOTTISH HISTORY FROM 1700-2000. YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE LIGHT READING THAT I AM TAKING WITH ME NEXT WEEK, LOL.

SZEE, I TOLD YOU THAT YOU AND TRISH WOULD GET ON, LOL. YOUR COLOUR SCHEMES ARE DEFINITELY MY TASTE BUT HEY, IF SHE LIKES IT THEN IT IS HER ROOM.

I GO CAMPING FOR PEACE AND QUIET SO OF COURSE A SITE IS NOT REALLY MY THING. HAVING SAID THAT I WAS AT MY SONE'S EX-PARTNER TO GIVE A BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO MY GRANDSON AND I WAS TOLD THAT I AM STARK RAVING BONKERS FOR CAMPING IN THE MIDDLE OF A FOREST FOR TWO WEEKS. THE LADY JUST COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW YOU WOULD DO WITHOUT ELECTRICITY SO THAT YOU COULD HAVE TV ETC. MARY AND TRISH AGREE WITH HER OF COURSE. I HAVE TRIED TO GET MARY TO EVEN STOP JUST A COUPLE OF NIGHTS SAYING THAT SHE COULD HAVE THE BED AND I WOULD SLEEP ON A MATTRESS ON THE FLOOR, BUT STILL NO JOY. SO WHENEVER SHE TELLS ME THAT SHE WOULD LOVE SOME PEACE AND QUIET TO UNWIND YOU CAN GUESS WHAT MY RETORT IS, LOL.

I WILL TAKE YOUR ADVICE AND SEE WHAT I CAN GET AS IF I AM ABLE TO GROW THE HERBS I CAN DRY THEM OR FREEZE SOME OF THEM FOR THE WINTER. THE GARDENER SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO GET SOME REALLY GOOD TOPSOIL AND QUITE CHEAP, WHICH IS HANDY AND HE CAN ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON THEM WHEN I AM NOT THERE AS NO WAY WOULD TRISH DO IT. SHE HAS SWORN NOT TO GO NEAR ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE GARDEN EXCEPT TO LOUNGE IN IT WHEN IT IS SUNNY.

NOT MUCH TODAY. IT WAS ANOTHER SUNNY DAY BIT WE ARE NOT EXPECTING THAT TOMORROW. IN FACT WE ARE EXPECTING TEMPERATRUES TO PLUMMET SOMEWHAT BUT WE WILL HAVE TO WAIRT TO SEE HOW LOW THEY GO. AS I SAID, WE DID GO TO SEE OUR GRANDSON BUT WE WAITED AND WAITED AND I GUESS HE MUST HAVE BEEN DOING SOMETHING AT SCHOOL BECAUSE HIS BROTHER CAME IN AND WE ENDED UP NOT SEEING THE BIRTHDAY BOY. ALTHOUGH IT IS HIS EX-PARTNER MY SON IS HELPING STILL WITH THE KIDS SO HE IS AT LEAST NOW FACING UP TO HIS RESPONSIBILITIES. JUST A PITY HE DID NOT THINK OF THIS BEFORE NOW BUT IT IS TOO LATE FOR RECRIMINATIONS. HE AFDMITS IT WAS HIS FAULT AND NO, HE WAS NOT CHEATING OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. HE JUST SIMPLY WAS NOT THERE WHEN THEY NEEDED HIM BECAUSE HE WAS ALWAYS TOO FOCUSSED ON WORK AND LACK OF COMMUNICATION. STILL, WE DID SEE HIM ALSO AND HOPEFULLY HE WILL BRING THE TWO YOUNGEST TO SEE ME ON CAMP BUT JUST FOR THE DAY THIS TIME. WHAY I WILL DO IS TO TEST THEM BY ERECTING THE TENT IN THE GARDEN AND HOLDING A SLEEPOVER FOR THEM. IT IS A TEST SIMPLY BECAUSE THE ELDEST IS STILL A BIT OF A MUMMY'S BOY AND HAS, UP TO NOW, BEEN LOATHE TO STAY AWAY FROM HOME. IF THEY ARE TO COME CAMPING WITH ME IN JULY THEN THEY WILL BE TWO HOURS AWAY AND AFTER 6PM THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GO HOME AS THE GATES WILL BE CLOSED TO THE FOREST DRIVE. MY OTHER TWO GRANDKIDS WILL BE FINE AND I WILL NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEM, SO THEY WILL WANT TO COME. THIS WILL BE DONE AFTER I GET BACK OF COURSE SO IT WILL BE A CASE OF KEEPING THE TENT OUT AND READY AS WE HAVE TO DECIDE ON A WEEKEND.

THAT IS ME NOW. AM GOING TO GO OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD AND LOG IN ONE AND THEN GET AN EARLY NIGHT. I AM GOING TO THE CAFE TOMORROW AS I HAVE TO BE IN TOWN ANYWAY TO DO SOME LAST MINUTE SHOPPING SO I WILL ENJOY THAT.

FINALLY, YOU SAID YOU DO THE BAG THING WITH YOUR CHICKEN. ANY COMBINATIONS OF HERBS/SPICES YOU USE WILL BE MOST WELCOME AS WE DO LIKE TO EXPERIMENT AND TRY OUT FLAVOURS WHICH ARE NEW TO US. BUT THANK YOU FOR HAVING A LOOK. YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE SO FAR.

SO I WILL WISH YOU A VERY LOVELY EVENING TO COME, SHERRY, AND WILL SEE YOU FOR THE LAST TRUE OR FALSE FOR THREE WEEKS TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT SHERRY. SWEET DREAMS.

MAC'S QUIZ...

1......... CONAN THE BARBARIAN (1982),.

2.......................ROBOCOP (1987).

3............... SPEED (1994).

VERY TRUE AS MUCH AS DOUG'S BOSS CAN BE A PAIN IN THE REAR SOME TIMES HE WILL DO SOMETHING NICE BUT NOT VERY OFTEN....... LOL......

LAST YEARS PETUNIA'S WERE RED.......... NOT PURPLE...... YOU DIDN'T MENTION TRISH IS PAINTING HER ROOM AND PUTTING PURPLE CARPET IN.......... THAT WILL LOOK SO GOOD AND THE COLOR MAKES IT SO OF DARK COOL AND COMFORTABLE......

AS FOR HERBS YOU CAN PLANT THEM ANY TIME OF THE YEAR............ LOTS OF PEOPLE GROW HERBS IN THEIR WINDOWS......... AND CUT FRESH HERBS ALL YEAR LONG.

I ALWAYS ENJOYED CAMPING WITH OTHER AROUND.............. YOU CAN CHAT AND DO A FEW THINGS TOGETHER AND THEN GO BACK TO YOUR CAMP AREA......... BUT I GUESS IF YOU WANT TO BE ALONE THEN THE PLACE YOU GO IS PERFECT...... YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU FEEL LIKE DOING........... AND IT IS PEACEFUL.........

WELL I HAVE TO DO MY WORKOUT THEN TAKE THE GARBAGE OUT.............

SHERRY, THE EARLY EGYPTIANS ARE MY SECOND FAVOURITE PERIOD IN HISTORY NEXT TO THE ROMANS AND FOLLOWED BY THE CRUSADES AND IN PAFTICULAR THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR. SCOTTISH HISTORY IS CATCHING UP THOUGH, LOL.

1. Tutankhamen

2. Rameses III

3. Hatshepsut

MY QUIZ TODAY IS ON MOVIE SEQUELS THAT, ACCORDING TO THE PERSON WHO MADE THE QUIZ SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN MADE, ALTHOUGH I DISAGREE WITH HER ON ONE OF HER ANSWERS AS WE ALL ENJOYED THE SEQUEL FOR ITS SHEER ESCAPISM, (Q3).

1. This fantasy movie was based loosely on the 1930s writings of Robert E. Howard. It's a violent and bloody movie. The main character is out for revenge against the killers of his family. It featured swordplay, magic and mysticism. Which movie am I describing? It's sequel was released two years later. It played more camp, less gore and had bad casting.

Conan the Barbarian (1982)
Phantasm (1979)
Red Sonja (1985)
Krull (1983)
2. The original movie in this series was a violent science fiction movie. It originally received an X rating before being edited. It featured a crime ridden city and a 'special' police officer trying to stop crime. Which Paul Verhoeven directed film is this? Its sequel followed three years later and was a mess.

RoboCop (1987)
Alien (1979)
Starship Troopers (1997)
Fright Night (1985)

3. 'A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....' Never mind that one, I don't want to aggravate anyone. The movie I'm thinking about is an action movie. It had plenty of action, comedy and a great villain. It told the story of a SWAT member trying to stop a public transit vehicle from exploding. Which movie is this? Its sequel followed three years later. This time the action took place on a cruise ship.

Pulp Fiction (1994)
Star Wars (1977)
Terminal Velocity (1994)
Speed (1994)

BEST OF LUCK.

I AM DEFINITELY HOPING THAT DOUG'S APPEAL DOES RESULT IN AN OVERTURN OF THE VERDICT AND ESPECIALLY AS HIS JOB IS WAITING FOR HIM. DESPITE WHAT DOUG MAY THINK OF HIS BOSS HE HAS BEEN GOOD ENOUGH TO KEEP HIS JOB OPEN FOR HIM, AND THAT MUST SAY SOMETHING.

YES, I DID NOT SEE YOUR LAST YEAR'S DISPLAY AND ASSUMED IT WAS PURPLE AS I KNOW IT IS YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR. YOU AND TRISH WOULD DEFINITELY GET ON WELL AS HER FAVOURITE FLOWER/HERB IS LAVENDER. (PURPLE), AND I THINK I MENTIONED THAT SHE IS PAINTING HER ROOM BLUE WITH A PURPLE CARPET.

IT WILL BE GETTING QUITE WARM WHEN I GET HOME FROM CAMP ALTHOUGH I DO HAVE A SHADY AREA I CAN PUT THE HERB POTS IN. I THOUGHT THAT IT MAY BE TOO LATE FOR THE LIKES OF THYME, CHIVES AND PARSLEY AS I KNOW THEY HAVE A SPECIFIC GROWING SEASON, OR AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT I FOUND WHEN I USED TO GROW THEM. EVEN MINT WILL NOT LAST TOO LONG BUT I AM NOT SURE WHEN THESE SEASONS ARE. NEXT YEAR I WILL HOPEFULLY HAVE MORE TIME AND MAY, IF I CAN PERSUADE MARY, TRY TOMATOES IN GROW BAGS. IT IS A LITTLE LATE FOR PLANTING THESE NOW AND I WILL NOT BE HERE FOR A WEEK IN JULY, (CAMP), AND TWO WEEKS IN AUGUST, (HOLIDAY WITH MARY), SO I DO NOT WANT TO GO THAT ROUTE THIS YEAR.

AND YES, I DO HAVE A LOT OF STUFF BUT REMEMBR THAT I AM NOT ON A CAMP SITE. IF I WAS THEN I WOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE HALF OF WHAT I HAVE TO AS THERE WOULD BE A SHOP TO BUY FOOD AND A TOILET BLOCK FOR WASHING ETC. WHY I DO NOT LIKE CAMP SITES IS THAT I FEEL RESTRICTED IN WHAT I CAN DO AND WHEN I CAN DO IT. REMEMBER I AM CONFINED TO THE AREA I CAMP IN. OK, EVEN WILD CAMPING HAS RULES THAT SHOULD BE FOLLOWED, SUCH AS THE COUNTRY CODE, BUT YOU ARE YOUR OWN PERSON AND DO NOT HAVE TO THINK ABOUT UPSETTING YOUR NEIGHBOUR. YOU CAN DO A LOT MORE AS WELL BECAUSE THE COUNTRYSIDE IS YOUR PLAYGROUND INSTEAD OF A FIELD WITH A MARKED BOUNDARY. IF I WERE ABLE TO DRIVE THEN I MIGHT CONSIDER IT, BUT I WOUD BE SO CONFINED THAT IT WOULD BE POINTLESS ME EVEN BOTHERING, PLUS IT WORKS OUT REALLY EXPENSIVE. I DID PRICE A COUPLE OF SITES THINKING I MIGHT END UP ON ONE BUT IT WOULD END UP COSTING ME UP TO £150, ($CAN278), JUST FOR A PITCH AND THAT IS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. LASTLY, WHERE I GO THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY SO I AM NOT DISTURBED BY PORTABLE TVs, RADIOS OR ELECTRONIC GADGETS. IT IS PEACEFUL EXCEPT FOR THE SOUNDS OF THE FOREST AND SURROUNDING HILLS AND THAT IS THE WAY I LIKE IT. SO BASICALLY THE COST TO ME IS THAT I DO HAVE TO CARRY EVERYTHING I NEED PLUS SOME EXTRAS WHICH I ADMIT I DO TAKE FOR PERSONAL COMFORT. I AM NOT RELIANT ON TRANSPORT IF I WANT TO FISH AS I AM RIGHT ON THE LOCH SHORE. IF I WANT TO SWIM, I CAN DO SO WITHOUT PLEASURE CRAFT GETTING IN THE WAY. IF I JUST WANT TO LAZE AROUND THERE IS NOBODY TO GET IN MY WAY AND I HAVE ALL THE ROOM I COULD EVER USE. IF I WISH TO LIGHT A CAMP FIRE THEN I CAN DO SO WHEREAS NO WAY WOULD THAT BE POSSIBLE ON A CAMP SITE. SADLY THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO GET RID OF WILD CAMPING BUT I DO NOT THINK THEY ARE GOING TO SUCCEED. ALREADY THEY HAVE RIDDEN ROUGHSHOD OVER THE VARIOUS CONSULTATIVE GROUPS BY BRINGING IN NEW BY-LAWS BUT THE OVERWHELMING PRESSURE FROM JOE PUBLIC WILL, I RECKON, DISSUADE THEM FROM INTERFERING WITH THE SCOTTISH CONSTITUTION ANY MORE. REMEMBER, THERE IS NO LAW OF TRESPASS IN SCOTLAND SO YOU ARE FREE TO GO ANYWHERE AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE. IF YOU DO THEN THE FINES ALONE ARE VERY HIGH, AS THEY SHOULD BE ,PLUS YOU ALSO HAVE TO PAY THE COST OF REPAIRING THE DAMAGE AND YOU CAN EVVEN GET JAIL TIME IF THE DAMAGE IS SO SEVERE. SCOTLAND IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE UK WHERE YOU CAN GO WILD CAMPING AS THE REST OF THE UK HAS BANNED IT, ANOTHER REASON WHY I DO NOT THINK IT WILL DIE OUT HERE. IT IS WORTH TOO MUCH TO THE TOURISM ECONOMY OF THE COUNTRY.

ANYWAY, WILL CATCH YOU LATER ON SHERRY. HAVE A GOOD DAY.

Horemhab

Osiris
Hatshepsut
Gleb

JUST A BIT DIFFERENT FROM THE NORMAL QUIZ............ GOOD LUCK MAC.


LAST YEAR I DID MY PETUNIA'S IN RED........ NOT PURPLE......... I THINK YOU WERE GONE WHEN I POSTED PICTURES SO YOU MAY NOT HAVE SEEN LAST YEARS FLOWERBEDS.......... ANNUALS ALSO BLOOM LONGER.......... I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT COLOR I SHOULD DO THIS YEAR......... I'VE BOUGHT SOME REALLY NEAT WIND CHIMES TO HANG ON THE FRONT PORCH..... ONE IS A PURPLE BUTTERFLY......

GROWING A HERBS IS VERY EASY AND YOU CAN GROW THEM ANY TIME OF THE YEAR SINCE YOUR DOING THEM IN POTS.......... I LIKE USE A BIG POT SO YOU CAN PUT 4 OR 5 DIFFERENT HERBS IN IT.............. AND ALL YOU DO IS START IN THE MIDDLE AND PUT EACH HERB BY HIGHT......... A LOT EASIER...

WOW YOU HAVE A LOT OF STUFF TO TAKE CAMPING............. I'M SURE YOU WON'T RUN OUT OF ANYTHING............. I DIDN'T REALIZE IT WAS NEXT TUES........ TIMES HAVE MOVED FAST.......... I BET YOUR EXCITED TO GET OUT THERE.......

IF THE APPEAL GOES THROUGH THEN THE LAWYER IS MOVING A HEAD AND TRYING TO GET ALL CHARGES DROPPED.......... IF THAT HAPPENS THEN DOUG WILL BE ABLE TO DRIVE AGAIN............ SO IT'S JUST THIS AWEFUL WAITING......... DOUG IS GETTING SHORT AND IT'S CRAZY TO HAVE TO WAIT THIS LONG.... AS FOR HIS JOB.......... THAT IS THERE WAITING FOR HIM............ HE WILL JUST HAVE TO FIND A WAY OUT THERE EVERY MORNING AND HOME IN THE EVENINGS........... HIS BOSS HAS LOTS OF WORK FOR DOUG........ SO THAT IS GOOD......

IT'S 2016..

SHERRY JUST GOT UP FROM SUPPER AND WATCHING SOME TV; DR. JEFF, ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET. WE TAPE ALL THE VET PROGRAMMES EACH WEEK FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND IT IS REALLY FASCINAYTING TO SEE WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO AND HOW SKILLED THEY ARE. THE TWO THAT ARE NOT ON AT THE MOMENT ARE THE YUKON VET AND THE ALASKA VET.

I THINK YOU ARE A REAL GLUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT WITH THOSE ANNUALS. OK, THEY DO LOOK SO MUCH NICER AND YOU CAN GET LOADS OF DIFFERENT COLOURS EACH YEAR SO CAN CONSTANTLY CHANGE THE LANDSCAPE, BUT THEY WERE TOO MUCH FOR ME. HAVING SAID THAT I GUESS THE PREDOMINANT COLOUR FOR YOU WILL ALWAYS BE PURPLE. WHAT I HAVE NOT DONE YET IS TO PLANT THE HERB GARDEN AND I FEAR IT MAY BE TOO LATE NOW FOR THIS YEAR. WE HAVE BEEN SO BUSY INSIDE THE HOUSE AND ALSO WITH HAVING THE GARDENER COME AND DO MAINTENANCE THAT SUCH THINGS HAVE NOT BEEN THOUGHT ABOUT. THE THING IS THAT BOTH TRISH AND I LOVE TO USE HERBS AND WE WILL BUY THEM FRESH, BUT THAT CAN BE EXPENSIVE WHICH IS WHY I WANT TO GROW MY OWN.

AND YES, THE CAMPING TRIP IS NEXT WEEK SHERRY, SO THIS WILL BE THE LAST QUIZ WEEK UNTIL I GET BACK. I AM GOING TO BE EXTRA BUSY THIS WEEKEND GETTING ALL OF THE KIT SORTED OUT AND PUT INTO ONE PLACE AND THEN ON MONDAY I WILL GO TO THE SUPERMARKET TO GET MY FRESH GOODS SUCH AS POTATOES, BREAD, EGGS AND BUTTER SUBSTITUTE. I WILL ALSO GO THROUGH MY CANNED FOODS TO ENSURE I HAVE ENOUGH OF EVERYTHING AND THEN ON MONDAY EVENING I PLAN TO GET THE CAR LOADED AFTER MARY GETS HOME SO THAT WE CAN GET STRAIGHT OFF COME TUESDAY MORNING. LOADING THE CAR TAKES UP SO MUCH TIME AND WE COULD BE HALF WAY THERE. NOT JJUST THAT BUT THIS TIME THERE ARE SOME HEAVY THINGS SUCH AS 4 FULL 20 LITRE WATER CONTAINERS, MY TENT WEIGHS 5 KG AND THERE IS THE CAMP KITCHEN UNIT PLUS ALL THE CANNED FOOD, AND THAT WEIGHS A TON. FORTUNATELY, AND IF I GET LUCKY, IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF A FEW FEET TO MOVE THE STUFF TO ONCE WE GET THERE. SO I WILL DROP IN OVER THE WEEKEND BUT THEN THAT WILL BE IT UNTIL 1ST JUNE.

IT IS TAKING A HECK OF A TIME TO GET A DECISION FOR DOUG. I KNOW THE WHEELS OF JUSTICE MOVE SLOWLY BUT THIS IS BEYOND A JOKE. WHAT I DO HOPE IS THAT IF SUCCESSFUL, DOUG'S DRIVING BAN WILL ALSO BE OVERTURNED SO THAT HE CAN GET BACK ON THE ROAD AND HOPEFULLY EVEN GET HIS OLD JOB BACK SHOULD HE WISH TO GO THST ROUTE. MORE IMPORTANT THOGUH IS THE FACT THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO DRIVE YOU AROUND SO THAT YOU ONLY DO ONE TRIP INSTEAD OF THREE. AM KEEPING EVERYTHING CROSSED FOR HIM.

THAT IS ME FOR THE DAY. FOR ONCE YOU ARE THE LAST TO TOUCH BASE WITH, WHICH IS UNUSUAL. ANYWAY, I TRUST YOU ARE NOW ABLE TO HAVE SUPPER AND KICK BACK AND RELAX.

CATCH UP WITH YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.

YES I DO BUY ANNUALS EVERY YEAR........... AS YOU KNOW I HAVE 3 FLOWERBEDS TO FILL AND THEN I DO LOTS OF POTS TO GO ON THE FRONT PORCH............ AND I DO THEM ALL IN PETUNIA'S......... THEY ARE HARDY AND BLOOM FOR ALONG TIME AFTER IT COOLS DOWN........... I COULD DO PERENNIALS AND YES YOUR RIGHT THEY ARE A LOT EASIER........... BUT I DON'T THINK ANY OF THEM LOOK AS NICE AS PETUNIA'S........ PLUS I DO THE ENTIRE FRONT YARD IN THE SAME COLOR......... THEN I PLANT VEGGIES IN POTS AND SOME IN THE GARDEN....... I ALSO STILL ENJOY THE BENDING DIGGING RAKING AND WEEDING......... IT'S GREAT EXERCISE FOR ME DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS......THE PAIN FROM ALL THAT IS WORTH IT IN THE END SO IT'S A GOOD PAIN........... THEY ALL USUALLY NEED WATER EVERY DAY SO IF I'M GOING OUT TO WATER I MIGHT AS WELL DO A BIT OF WEEDING AND IT SURE KEEPS THEM WEEDS DOWN AND I NEVER GET OVERWHELMED........

AS FOR DOUG.................. WELL NOTHING MORE HAS HAPPENED SINCE THE LAWYER TOOK THE PAPERS FOR DOUG TO SIGN............... RIGHT NOW ALL THE PAPERS ARE IN QUEENS BENCH SO APPARENTLY WE'RE WAITING ON THEIR DECISION......... IF THE APPEAL DOES GO THROUGH THEN HIS LAWYER IS WORKING ON GETTING ALL THE CHARGES DROPPED BEING IT WAS AN ACCIDENT AND HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED.............

FOR SURE HIRING A TAXI IS NOT CHEAP.......... AND THEY CERTAINLY DON'T LIKE PICKING UP PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT SHOPPING.......... THEY ARE LAZY..... ONLY A FEW ARE REALLY GOOD........... THE ONE GUY I HAD SO MANY TIMES AND I GOT TO KNOW HIM......... HE'S THE ONE THAT CARRYING MY NEW SMART TV UPSTAIRS AND EVEN HOOKED IT UP FOR ME............. BUT LOTS OF TIMES SOMEONE ELSE PICKS ME UP.......... THE GUY I LIKE TOLD ME TO BUY AS MANY TRAYS OF BEDDING PLANTS AS I WANT...... BUT I NEVER KNOW IF HE WILL BE THE ONE TO PICK ME UP.......... SO I TAKE IT EASY.......... I SURE MISS OUR VAN...... OUR VAN SEATS 7 ALSO....... WE HAVE TWO SEATS IN THE BACK........ BUT WE TOOK ONE OUT SO WE CAN LOAD IT WHENEVER..... OURS EVEN HAS THE THING YOU CAN WATCH MOVIES ON.......

IT MUST BE GETTING CLOSE TO YOUR CAMPING TRIP............. I HOPE THIS YEAR YOU CAN HAVE A DRY CAMP EVERY TIME....... OH FOR SURE I WILL CHECK OUT THE CHICKEN RECIPE..............

1. YES.

2. SALMONELLA.

3. ASPARTAME - EQUAL.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YES, IT WAS SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT FOR YOU TODAY BUT THEN IT KEEPS THE MIND GOING, LOL. NO PROBLEMS THOUGH SHERRY. I DID ONE QUIZ ON THE SAME THEME AND EVEN I FOUND IT DIFFICULT SO THIS IS THE SECOND QUIZ I LOOKED AT. emoticon


A LATE SUPPER THIS EVENING SO FOR US IT IS TAKE OUT. OUR GRANDSON HAS JUST FINISHED HIS RUGBY TRAINING AND IS IN THE SHOWER SO TRISH GAVE ME A CALL.

ACTUALLY, TODAY HAS BEEN A SLOW ONE FOR A CHANGE. I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO POTTER AROUND DOING BITS AND PIECES WITHOUT ANY NEED TO HURRY. A LUXURY WHCIH I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ALL OF THE TIME, LOL.

DO YOU PLANT ANNUALS EACH YEAR? I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT PERENNIALS WOULD BE THE WAY TO GO. WHEN I WAS GARDENING THAT IS WHAT I DID AS THEY WERE MUCH EASIER TO MAINTAIN AND YTHEY WERE THERE ALL OF THE TIME. OK, THE DOWNSIDE IS THAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE THINGS AROUND WITHOUT MAJOR WORK BUT BEFORE I HAD GTO GIVE IT UP I FOUND IT MUCH EASIER TO KEEP THE GARDEN UP TO SCRATCH. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE THAT GARDENER WHO DID ALL THE WORK FOR US. HE COMES IN EVERY NOW AND THEN AND HE IS DING A STERLING JOB FOR US AND FOR REALLY LILTTLE REWARD. IT CERTAINLY SAVES US FROM HAVING TO BEND DOWN AND DO STUFF WHICH WOULD END UP WITH EXTREME PAIN. HE WAS IN THE BACK YESTERDAY AND IS DUE TO COME AGAIN IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS TO TACKLE THE FRONT. DESPITE A COVER BEING PUT DOWN THERE IS STILL SOME GRASS POKING THROUGH AND THERE IS A BIG LOT OF IT ACTUALLY GROWING THROUGH THE DISABLED RAMP. WHERE IT IS COMING FROM I HAVE NOT A CLUE AS IT IS A FLAG PATH UNDERNEATH SO IT MUST BE THAT SPOIL HAS GOT INTO THE CRACKS.

SPEAKING OF DOUG, HOW IS HE AND HAVE YOU HEARD ANYTHING MORE ABOUT HIS APPEAL? I CAN UNDERSTAND A DRIVING BAN IF HE IS AT FAULT BUT IF AN ACCIDENT THEN THAT IS REALLY TOO SEVERE. HAVING TO GET A TAXI ALL OF THE TIME IS EXPENSIVE AS WELL AND NO WAY CAN YOU GET AS MUH SHOPPING OR STIFF INTPO THE VEHICLE. IT IS WHY I AM GLAD WE HAVE WHAT IS CALLED A UTILITY VEHICLE WHICH BASICALLY MEANS IT CAN CARRY UP TO SEVEN PEOP;E INCLUDING THE DRIVER OR CAN BE CONFIGURED TO CARRY JUST TWO BUT HAVE A MASSIVE BOOT, A FEATURE WE WILL BE UTILISING NEXT WEEK.

REALLY NOTHING EXCITING IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. I AM PATIENTLY WAITING UNTIL FRIDAY TO PHONE THE RANGERS TO FIND OUT ABOUT GROUND CONDITIONS OR IF I AM ALLOWED TO GO TO PLANS B AND C. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BE OK AS THE WEATHER FORECASST FOR THE AREA DOES NOT SIGNAL A LOT OF RAIN COMING THAT WAY OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND THE TEN DAY FORECAST IS ALSO LOOKING OK.

WILL CATCH UP LATER ON AS I AM GETTING HUNGRY SO CANNOT WAIT FOR THE GIRLS TO GET HOME, LOL. OH, BTW, I HAVE POSTED THE CHICKEN RECIPE ONTO THE RECIPE PAGE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

TAKE CARE SHERRY. HAVE A SUPER DAY.

LAST YEAR WE USED OVER 60 PETUNIA'S FOR THE FLOWER BEDS OUT FRONT.........AFTER I GET ALL THOSE I WILL GET ALL THE VEGGIES..... IT'S NOT SO EASY TO SHOP WHEN YOU HAVE TO TAKE A TAXI.......

SHERRY, TODAT'S QUIZ IS ON A SUBJECT I DO NOT NORMALLY TOUCH WITH YOU BUT I THINK IT IS NOT SO DIFFICULT AND YOU SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEMS.

1. The sabre-toothed cat (also known as the "sabre-toothed tiger") is a relation of today's big cats, but became extinct around 10,000 years ago, having previously been found in North America and Europe. Which of its teeth were substantially elongated, giving it its well-known name?

None - the name is misleading
Canines
Molars
Wisdom teeth

2. The woolly mammoth was the last of the mammoths to walk the Earth. The species became all but extinct 20,000 years ago, though there were some small populations remaining as recently as 4,000 years ago. Although the woolly mammoth has now left us, its relatives remain. What existing species of animal is the closest relative of the woolly mammoth?

Asian elephant
Polar bear
Black rhinoceros
Walrus

3. The Caribbean monk seal has been hunted for hundreds of years. Which well-known New World explorer was the first to discover this curious and tame species of seal (he called them "sea-wolves"), ordering his crew to kill eight of them for food immediately upon finding them?

Marco Polo
Henry Carter
Dr Livingstone
Christopher Columbus

BEST OF LUCK.

OUR WEATHER CONTINUES TO BE SUNNY BUT NEXT WEEK IT IS DUE TO COOL DOWN ALOT,WHICH I DON'T MIND AS IT WILL HELP KEEP THE MIDGES AT BAY AND SHOULD BE QUITE PLEASANT.

RIGHT NOW I AM UPSTAIRS AND AM LEAVING THE GIRLS TO IT AS WE HAVE MY YOUNGEST GRANDSON FOR TEA AND THEN TO TAKE HIM TO HIS RUGBY TRAINING AS HIS FATHER IS AT WORK. HE IS A LITTLE IMP BUT YOU JUST LOVE HIM ANYWAY, LOL.

HOPEFULLY WE CAN CHAT A BIT LATER ON TODAY. HAVE A GOOD ONE AND DON'T BE BUYING ANY MORE BEDDING PLANTS! I THOUGH I WAS BAD BEING LET LOOSE IN A GARDENING AREA, LOL.

1. EARTHQUAKE AND LANDSLIDE.

2. BANGLADESH.

3. DARWIN.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon NO PROBLEMS HERE SHERRY.

WHEN YOU OLME BACK WOULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW I DID ON YOUR QUIZ YESTERDAY.

YOUR WEATHER SOUNDS GOOD. WE ARE AROUND 17°C HERE BUT IN THE NORTH WEST THEY ARE STILL UP IN THE LOW 20's. IT WILL GO DOWN COME FRIDAY THOUGH AND WE CAN ONLY EXPECT AROUND 10-12°C BECAUSE OF THE NORTHERLY AIR STREAM THAT IS COMING.

REGARDING FORT MCMURRAY I THINK THAT CUEDOS HAS TO BE GIVEN TO THE BRAVE FIREFIGHTERS WHO MANAGED TO COMNTAIN IT SUFFICIENTLY THAT ONLY A FRACTION OF THE TOWN WAS LOST. OKAY, IT IS STILL DEVASTATING, BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT WORSE AND AT LEAST THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS STILL THERE AS NO HOSPITALS OR SCHOOLS OR MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS WERE TOUCHED. THE ONLY THING FOR THOSE WHO DID LOSE EVERYTHING IS THAT THEY MAY NOT GET BACK FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT 2 MONTHS WHILST THE TOWN CLEANS THE AREAS UP AND MAKES THEM SAFE AGAIN. THE FIREFIGHTERS WER SAYING THAT THIS FIRE IS LIKE NOTHING THEY HAD SEEN BEFORE AS IT LITERALLY JUMPED OVER ROADS SO NOT EVEN PUTTING IN A BREAK WOULD HAVE STOPPED IT. OBVIOUSLY THER EIS STILL A LOT OF FIREFIGHTING TO DO TO GET THE BLAZE COMPLETELY UNDER CONTROL BUT THINGS ARE LOOOKING A LOT BETTER JUDGING BY THE REPORTING. HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE THE FOREST TO REGENERATE IS, OF COURSE, ANOTHER THINGS. GIVEN THE VAST AREA IT WILL BE A LOT OF YEARS BEFORE THE TREE LINE IS BACK THE WAY IT WAS AND THE ANIMALS RETURN.

ANYWAY, WILL TELL YOU OF MY DAY TODAY WHEN WE CHAT LATER ON. HAVE A GOOD ONE SHERRY.

ALL OTHER KINDS OF STUFF... I CAN'T IMAGINE LOSING EVERYTHING YOU WORKED FOR AND FOR YEARS........... YOU CAN NEVER GET THAT BACK AND YOU HAVE TO START OVER WITH NOTHING..........

I CAN ALREADY SEE MY GARDEN FILLING UP WITH WEEDS........... AND I'VE PUT NOTHING DOWN............ MAYBE I SHOULD PICK UP SOME WEEK KILLER AND SPRAY THE WEEDS BEFORE I PLANT........ THAT MIGHT HELP TO KEEP THEM DOWN WHEN I DO PLANT......

3. BEER.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YES SHERERY, IT WAS A LITTLE MORE CHALLENGING A MUSIC QUIZ FOR YOU TODAY BUT I THOUGHT YOU WOULD COME THROUGH AND YOU DID. emoticon IT IS GETTING QUITE DIFFICULT TO GIVE YOU A MUSIC QUIZ WITHOUT CHALLENGING YOU THESE DAYS.

SORRY I AM A BIT LATE IN TO ANSWER YOUR QUIZ, (IT IS NOW 10.30PM HERE). AFTER A SUPERB BBQ, (AND I WILL POST THE RECIPE FOR THAT CHICKEN AS IT TASTES DELICIOUS AND I WILL ALSO POST THE TURKISH FLATBREAD RECIPE AS WELL), WE SAT AND WATCHED A COUNTDOWN OF THE BIGGEST GROSSING MOVIES IN BRITAIN DURING THE 90'S. EVERYTHING FROM SILENCE OF THE LAMBS TO PULP FICTION, DANCES WITH WOLVES TO THE MASK BUT, NO SURPRISES REALLY THAT THE BIGGEST OF THE LOT WAS THE JAMES CAMERON FILM, TITANIC.

I AM SURPRISED THAT YOU NEVER HEARD ABOUT FORT MCMURRAY. IT WAS ALL OVER THE BBC NEWS AS IT HAS BEEN FOR THE TIME IT HAS BEEN BURNING. IT NEEDS THE WEATHER TO HELP REALISTICALLY AND FOR IT TO COOL SUFFICIENTLY FOR THE FIRE FIGHTERS TO GET RIGHT INTO THE CORE SO THEY CAN AT LEAST STAR TO COOL IT ALL DOWN. THE PROBLEM IS GOING TO BE THAT THERE WILL BE EMBERS GLOWING FOR MONTHS AND ONLY FEW DAYS OF REALLY HEAVY RAIN IS GOING TO BE EFFECTIVE IN GETTING RID OF IT ALL PROPERLY. I DO KNOW THAT THE PROGNOSIS IS THAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE MANY YEARS TO GET THE TOWN BACK TO WHAT IT WAS, AND I FEEL REALLY SORRY FOR THOSE WHO NOW HAVE TO START FROM SCRATCH AGAIN AS THEY WILL HAVE LOST MORE THAN JUST BRICKS AND MORTAR. SO MANY KEEPSAKES AND MEMORIES ARE NOW LOST AND CAN NEVER BE REPLACED. WHAT WAS SO PLEASING WAS THAT THE WHOLE OF CANADA HAS RESPONDED WITH GIFTS OF FOOD AND CLOTHING AND THE TV CAMERAS RECORDED HOW GRATEFUL THE RECIPIENTS WERE TO RECEIVE THIS.

SPOKE WITH THE GARDENER TODAY AS HE WAS WORKING AND HE SAID HE HAS THIS BOTTLE OF STUFF THAT WILL KILL EVERYTHING OFF. I DISCOVERD THAT OUTSIDE THE GARDEN THE WEEDS HAD STARTED TO COME BACK BIG TIME AND THEY NEED TO BE KILLED OFF ONCE AND FOR ALL AS THEY IMPEDE OUR ACCESS. WE DID PUT IN A GRASS WALKWAY BUT THAT IS GOING TO HAVE TO GO AS THE WEEDS ARE JUST TAKING IT OVER. WITH THIS STUFF HE HAS IT IS HOPED THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY GET A DECENT GAP SO THAT WE CAN GET TO THE PARK EASIER. MY BIGGEST PROBLEM INSIDE THE GARDEN IS STILL GRASS GROWING THROUGH FROM NEXT DOOR. THEY HAVE A LAWN RIGHT UP TO THE FENCE AND OF COURSE GRASS WILL FIND THE SMALLEST OF CRACKS TO GET THROUGH. I HAVE SPRAYED IT WITH WEEDKILLER SO WE WILL SEE IF THAT DOES THE TRICK.

WILL BE UP AND AROUND FOR THE NEXT 45 MINUTES BUT THEN WILL BE OFF TO BED.

DON'T WORK TOO HARD SHERRY.

I WOULD BE THE SAME WAY AS DEE............ NOT SURE HOW THINGS ARE GOING SO I WOULD HAVE TO STOP IN ALL THE TIME........ AND THEN YOU END UP DOING SOME KIND OF WORK WHILE YOUR THERE.......... SHE HAS DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH THE CAFE........ WONDER HOW SHE WILL GET ON WHEN THE BABY IS BORN.......

I'VE NEVER TASTED THE KIND OF MEAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT............. BUT TRISH IS GOING TO TRY AND DO IT ON THE BBQ.......... I WOULD LOVE TO BE THERE JUST TO SEE HOW IT TURNS AND WHAT THE TASTE IS LIKE....... RACK OF LAMB......... THAT I WOULD PASS UP.......... I'D LIKE TO TASTE THE TURKISH FLAT BREAD.....

I HAVE A LOT OF STUFF I WANT TO DO AROUND HERE ALSO............ TOO COOL TO BE OUTSIDE SO I WILL KEEP BUSY INSIDE........

IT IS MONDAY AND IT IS MUSIC BUT I THINK THIS ONE MAY GET YOUR THINKING.

1. The Beatles were a worldwide phenomena. Here is a snatch of McCartney and Lennon lyrics in French.
"Je vais vous achete une bague de diamants mon ami
Si cela vous fait sentir tout droit
Je vais te chercher quoi que ce soit mon ami
Si cela vous fait sentir tout droit
Parce que je n'aimee pas trout l'argent..."
What is the song?

I Am The Walrus
All You Need Is Love
A Hard Day's Night
Can't Buy Me Love
2. It is not just lyrics but melodies that cross borders. Many Americans sing:
"My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!"
The melody is similar to that of the national anthem of a European country. Which one?

France.
Great Britain.
Switzerland.
Ireland.

3. In an unusual move, enemies on both sides of a conflict began to enjoy the same song. These are some of the original lyrics; by which name is the song known in English?
"Vor der Kaserne
Vor dem großen Tor
Stand eine Laterne
Und steht sie noch davor
So woll'n wir uns da wieder seh'n
Bei der Laterne wollen wir steh'n...."

Erika.
Lilli Marlene.
Wooden Heart.
The Faithful Husaar.

BEST OF LUCK.

WATCHING THE LATEST ON FORT MCMURRAY AND THERE IS JUST A TINGE OF HOPE AS I SEE THEY HAD SOME RAIN EARLIER ON AND WITH THE TEMPERATURES COOLING DOWN A FIREFIGHTER WAS SAYING THAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY GET IN AND START TO GET TO GRIPS WITH IT. WE ALSO HEARD THAT 80% OF THE TOWN IS ACTUALLY OK, WHICH IS GOOD TO HEAR, BUT ON THE FLIP SIDE IT IS LIKELY TO BE CANADA'S MOST EXPENSIVE FOREST FIRE IN RECORDED HISTORY WITH INSURANCE CLAIMS RUNNING INTO BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. ALSO THE OIL FIELDS ARE LOSING PRODUCTION AS WELL SO THAT WILL HAVE A KNOCK ON EFFECT IN THE PRICE OF OIL AND NOT JUST IN CANADA.

AS FOR DEE; SHE IS ONE WHO JUST FINDS IT IMPOSSIBLE TO JUST SIT AND RELAX. THINKING ABUT ITDOES THAT NOT REMIND YOU OF A FEW PEOPLE? LOL. SHE WILL BE WORRIED THAT HER HUBBY IS NOT COPING AND EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS A FRIEND THAT WILL BE POPPING IN TO KEEP AN EYE ON THINGS, I KNOW THAT THIS PLACE IS REALLY HER BABY. SHE HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN GETTING THINGS DONE AND BUILDING UP THE CLIENTELLE SO SHE WILL WANT TO KEEP TABS ON IT PERSONALLY.

WEATHER WISE IT IS REALLY GOOD HERE. PARTS OF THE NORTH WEST OF SCOTLAND ARE UP TO 26°C BUT I AM MORE LOOKING AT WHERE I AM DUE TO GO NEXT WEEK AND IT IS AROUND 20°C. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IT IS LIKEY TO CONTINUE UNTIL AT LEAST WEDNESDAY WHEN IT WILL COOL OFF SLIGHTLY DUE TO SOME COLD AIR COMING DOWN FORM THE NORTH. HAVING SAID THAT THE FIRECAST IS STILL FOR IT TO BE DRY AND THAT IS WHAT I WANT.

TODAY WE ARE GUINEA PIGS. I DO NOT KNOW IF YOU HAVE SCHWAMAS IN CANADA, ALTHOUGH I SUSPOECT YOU DO. ITU IS A MIDDLE EASTERN THING WHICH SEES MEAT BASICALLY COOKED ON A SPIT BUT PULLED OFF AS IT IS COOKING INTO ALMOST PULLED MEAT STRIPS. IT ALSO HAS A UNIQUE TASTE TO IT. ANYWAY, A LADY HAS GOT THIS RECIPE WHICH CLAIMS TO GIVE THE SAME TASTE BUT WITH OUT THE NEED FOR A SPIT AND, SINCE THE WEATHER IS SO GOOD, TRISH HAS DECIDED TO GIE IT A GO ON THE BBQ ALONG WITH A RACK OF LAMB AND SOME TURKISH FLATBREAD AND SALAD. I WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT TASTES AND IF IT IS GOOD THEN I WILL PASS ON THE RECIPE AS I KNOW YOU ENJOY MUCKING ABOUT WITH SPICES.

A DAY OF POTTERING AROUND DOING HOUSEWORK AD PUTTING DOWN WEEDKILLER. ALSO MOVING MORE STUFF INTO THE SHED. WILL DEFINITELY BE GOING TO THE CAFE TOMORROW. MARY WILL NOT HAVE THE CAR AS IT IS IN THE GARAGE FOR AN ANNUAL SERVICE AND ROAD WORTHINESS TEST SO I CAN BE OUT ALL DAY. emoticon

HOPE YOUR MONDAY IS A LITTLE MORE RELAXING THAN MINE. CATCH YOU LATER.

HI MAC.................. YES I THINK YOU ARE A LOT BEHIND............. BECAUSE WE'VE ALREADY GONE THROUGH TWO NEW SEASONS...... RIGHT NOW IT'S SO WILD IT'S LIKE THEY SAVED EVERYTHING FOR THE SEASON THAT IS ON NOW....... AND IT HAS EVERYONE THAT WATCHES IT A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY...... YOU CAN'T EVEN GUESS WHAT'S COMING NEXT........... SO I HOPE YOU CAN CATCH UP TO THIS SEASON SOON.....

SO DEE IS ONLY LEAVING ONE MONTH BEFORE SHE HAS THE BABY.......... I'M SURE SHE WILL GO STIR CRAZY BECAUSE SHE'S SO USE TO BEING THERE EVERY DAY AND KEEPING BUSY.......... SO SHE MAY JUST DROP IN BUT THEN THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOMETHING THAT NEEDS DONE.......... I GUESS AS LONG AS SHE ONLY DOES A FEW THINGS THEN TAKES IT EASY......

IT'S BEEN SUNNY HERE EVERY DAY............ OUR TEMPS GO UP TO LIKE IT'S A SUMMER DAY IN JULY........ THE OTHER DAY WE HIT 29C........ I'VE SEEN GRILLS IN THE STORES AND THEY SAY IT'S THE SAME AS A BBQ BUT IT'S INSIDE........... I THINK THEY ALSO HAVE ONES THAT YOU WON'T NEED THE CHARCOAL...... I THINK I WILL CHECK INTO THAT....... SO MANY TIMES I'VE WANTED TO BBQ BUT IT'S EITHER TOO COLD OR TOO WINDY....

I WAS WATCHING TODAY ABOUT FORT MCMURRY AND THEY ARE WORRIED IT'S GOING TO START SPREADING ALL AROUND........ AND THEY ALSO SAY THE FIRE WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BURN FOR MONTHS....... I CAN'T IMAGINE LOSING EVERYTHING I HAVE HOUSE AND ALL......... THAT HAS GOT TO BE VERY DEVASTATING....... IT'S BEEN ALL OVER THE NEWS SINCE IT STARTED........

TIME FOR ME TO GET LUNCH READY..................... ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR WEEKEND MAC.....

SHERRY, THE BLACKLIST IS STILL RECORDING SO I THINK WE MAY BE A BIT BEHIND YOU ANYWAY. IT IS SO FULL OF SUB PLOTS THAT IT REALLY MAKES YOU BECOME A CONSPIRACY THEORIST, LOL. AS FOR DEE; SHE WILL START TO TAKE TIME OFF AROUND AUGUST AND THEN I THINK THE BABY IS DUE IN SEPTEMBER, BUT WE HAVE BEEN TAKING BETS THAT SHE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STAY AWAY FOR LONG. SHE WILL GO STIR CRAZY AND WILL BE CONSTANTLY WORRIED THAT HUBBY IS MANAGING THE PLACE CORRECTLY, LOL. OUR WWEATHER HAS BEEN OK TEMP WOSE IN THAT IT HAS BEEN AROUND 12°C BUT I HAD TO GO OUT THIS AFTERNOON AND THE WIND CHILL MADE IT BITTERLY COLD. ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT THERE WAS NO SUNSHINE IT WAS QUITE CHEERLESS. IT SHOULD BE GOING UP TO AROUND 20°C TOMORROW BUT AGAIN THERE IS LOW CLOUD FORECAST AND WE WILL PROBABLY NOT GET A FULL DAY OF SUN UNTIL MONDAY, WHEN TRISH HAS SUGGESTED A BBQ. UNTIL YOU CAN GET THE PROPANE HOOKED UP YOU MAY WANT TO GET YOURSELF A LITTLE CHARCOAL BBQ. I RECKON THAT YOU MAY EVEN STICK WITH IT ONCE YOU HAVE TASTED THE FOOD OFF IT. THE STEAK DOES SOUND GOOD THOUGH. WE HAVE HAD OOUR GRASS CUT ALSO BUT THE MAIN JOBS HAVE HAD TO BE DELAYED AS THE GARDENER HAS BEEN SICK. HE IS DUE TO COME AGAIN THIS COMING MONDAY AFTERNOON TO DO THE OTHER JOBS. HE WILL HAVE TO COME AS HE HAS NOT TAKEN ANY PAY YET.

I AM REALLY LAYTE TODAY. I HAD PUT ASIDE ENOUGH EGGS TO MAKE MY CAKE AND WHEN I WENT TO USE THEM I DISCOVERED THAT TRISH HAD TAKEN A COUPLE FOR HEERE LUNCH. WITH OUR BUS SERVICE BEING WHAT IT IS I EVENTUALLY WENT TO THE STORETO GET MORE AT 5.10PM BUT DID NOT GET BACK HOME UNTIL 6.50PM. MARY LITERALLY FOLLOWED ME IN THE DOOR. AFTER THAT IT WAS SUPPER OF COURSE SO I DID NOT GET TO COMPLETE THE CAKE PREP UNTIL AFTER WE HAD CLEANED DOWN. I AM NOW WAITING FOR THE CAKE TO COOL SUFFICIENTLY SO I CAN WRAP IT IN CLING FILM AND PUT INT INTO THE CAKE CARRIER AND IT IS NOW APPROACHING 11.15PM!

I HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING THE GOOD WEATHER ALTHOUGH 27°C IS A LOT HIGHER THAN WE NORMALLY GET AND IT NEEDS TO BE A REAL HEATWAVE FOR US TO GET ANYWHERE NEAR THAT. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT THE FORT MCMURRAY FIRE WILL CONTINUE TO BURN AND WE HEAR THAT IT MAY DOUBLE IN SIZE BEFORE IT IS FINISHED. IT LOOKS AS IF IT IS GOING TO CAUSE A OT MORE DAMAGE AND EVEN ESCORTED CONVOYS ARE HAVING TO BE CURTAILED BECAUSE OF HTE HEAT AND PEOPLE JUST DO NOT KNOW IN WHICH DIRECTION GO GO FOR THE BEST. WE HEAR THAT EDMONTON IS A FAVOURED DESTINATION BUT IT IS TAKING PEOPLE A LONG TIME TO GET THERE AND THE TV HAS SHOWN SOME OF WHAT THE FOLK ARE GOING THROUGH. SUCH A TERRIBLE WASTE AND I ONLY HOPE THAT THE COVERNMENT WILL STEP INN AND HELP TO REBUILD HOUSES AND GIVE AID SO THAT PEOPLE CAN BUY FURNITURE AND STUFF ONCE THEY ARE ALLOWED BACK. I HAVE A FEELING THAT HOUSE INSURANCE IS NOT GOING TO COVER THIS.

STILL HAVE TO GO OVER TO CHAT BUT I WILL BID YOU GOODNIGHT SHERRY AND WISH YOU A LOVELY RELAXING SUNDAY. SEE YOU ON MONDAY.

MONDAY AND FRIDAY CLUB SOUNDS GREAT............. IT'S MORE OR LESS THE SAME PEOPLE THAT GO THERE ON CERTAIN DAYS...... EVEN BETTER THE OWNER GAVE YOU THE NAME.... I THINK IT'S GREAT YOU ALL SIT AT ONE TABLE........ I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD MAKE IT EASIER DEE........ THIS WAY SHE ONLY NEEDS TO COME TO YOUR TABLE INSTEAD OF RUNNING AROUND AT DIFFERENT TABLES..... IT'S GOT TO BE HARD FOR HER DOING ALL THIS WHILE SHE IS PREGNANT...... HOW FAR LONG IS SHE GOING GO......... THEN TAKE HER MATERNITY LEAVE......

OUR TEMPS HAVE BEEN IN THE HIGH 20'S........ TODAY IS GOING UP TO 27C.. AND I WALKED TO THE DRUGSTORE THIS MORNING AND IT FELT THAT HOT ALREADY... MY LANDLORD CAME OVER AND CUT THE GRASS AND ROTOTILLED MY GARDEN..... SO EVERYTHING IS READY TO GO.....

YOU ARE SO BEHIND WITH THE BLACKLIST IT'S GOING TO BE HARD TO FINALLY CATCH UP........... I MEAN YOU HAVE TO GET TO THIS SEASON........... IT WILL SHOCK AND SERIOUSLY MAKE YOU WONDER WHAT NOW.... REDINGTON KNOWS THE BAD GUYS AND HAS TAPS WITH THE GOOD GUYS... I THINK IN A WAY HE CONTROLS BOTH PEOPLE..........

I PICKED UP A SIRLOIN STEAK AND I'M GOING TO COOK IT TODAY...... CAN'T USE THE BBQ BECAUSE DOUG HAS TO GET THE PROPANE HOOKED UP....... SO I THINK I WILL GRILL IT UNDER THE BROILER....

TAKE CARE HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND MAC.

NICE TO END THE WEEK ON A HIGH SHERRY.

TODAY AS BEEN A GOOD ONE. WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY THE MONDAY AND FRIDAY CLUB AT THE CAFE. WE GOT GIVEN THE NAME TODAY BY ALAN, THE OWNER, LOL. IT WAS SO FUNNY AS WE WERE ALL AT THE ONE TABLE AND POOR DEE WAS EXHAUSTED BY THE TIME WE BROKE UP. THE CAFE WAS BUSY ANYWAY BUT WE KEPT HER GOING WITH DRINKS AND FOOD ORDERS AS WELL AS BANTER. THE PROBLEM FOR HER TODAY WAS THAT IN THE MDDLE OF US PUTTING THE WORLD TO RIGHTS SHE GOT A VERY LARGE ORDER FOR LATTE COFFEES SO EVERYTHING WAS KIND OF ON HOLD WHILST SHE SORTED IT OUT. COME AUGUST SHE WILL BE READY TO HAVE A REST PRIOR TO HER BABY BEING BORN. I HAD INTENDED ON JUST POPPING IN FOR BREAKFAST AS I GOT THERE BEFORE THE CAFE WAS OPEN. NOT A HOPE. I EVENTUALLY CAUGHT THE BUS AT 1.05PM THIS AFTERNOON WHICH MEANT I DID NOT GET HOME UNTIL NEARLY 2PM. TIME JUST GOES SO QUICKLY WHEN YOU ARE HAVING FUN, LOL.

IN CONTRAST THE AFTERNOON WAS A BIT OF AN ANTI-CLIMAX. THE GOOD WEATHER IS STILL COMING IN AND COME SUNDAY WE WILL BE GETTING TEMPERATURES OF AROUND 20°C SO IT WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY HERALD THE PROPER BBQ SEASON.

TOMORROW I HAVE A FEW THINGS TO ATTEND TO. IT IS BAKING DAY BUT I ALSO NEED TO GO AND SPRAY SOME WEEDKILLER ABOUT IN THE GARDEN PLUS I HAVE THE STAIRS TO SWEEP AND THE OVEN TO CLEAN. WE ARE SLOWLY WORKING OUR WAY THROUGH THE BLACKLIST AS THERE JUST IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO SIT AND WATCH IT ALL. WE ARE AT THE POINT WHERE WE ARE WONDERING IF IT IS REDINGTON WHO IS IN CONTROL OF THE BAD GUYS AS WHEN WE LEFT IT HE WAS HAVING A DRINK WITH THE LADY BOSS OF THE POLICE TASK FORCE. IT WAS INEVITABLE THAT HER SUBORDINATE WOULD BE KILLED I THINK. SORRY, I AM TERRIBLE AT REMEMBERING NAMES, BUT I THINK YOU WILL KNOW WHO I MEAN. SUB PLOTS WITHIN SUB PLOT SO NO WONDER YOU GET CONFUSED. STILL, IT CERTAINLY KEEPS IT INTERESTING.

THAT IS ME FOR THE NIGHT. JUST THE CHAT THREAD TO VISIT AND THEN I AM OUT OF HERE. ENJOY YOUR PIZZA AND HOPEFULLY I WILL GET TO SPEAK WITH YOU OVER THE WEEKEND. IF NOT THEN HAVE A GOOD ONE.

THIS IS ALL ABOUT UK MUSIC SO YOU WILL ACE IT........ GOOD LUCK MAC.

MAC'S QUIZ.

1................ FALSE.

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

3.............. TRUE.

THAT'S TOO BAD THE SHOTS DIDN'T HELP TO EASE ANY PAIN IN TRISH'S RIGHT ARM....... MAYBE THESE SHOTS AREN'T THING THEY SHOULD BE USING,.,.,.,.,. IT'S ABOUT TIME THEY FIND SOME OTHER WAY TO EASE SOME OF THE PAIN,....... LIVING WITH PAIN IS SOMETHING I WILL DO THE REST OF MY LIFE........ BUT TO GET ANY KIND OF HELP TO EASE THE PAIN MAKES THINGS A LITTLE EASIER AND I'VE FOUND A WAY TO WORK AROUND IT.............

THIS OTHER SITE SOUNDS JUST ABOUT RIGHT FOR YOU......... IT HAS BEEN USED BEFORE SO THERE MUST BE A NICE SPACE TO PITCH A TENT..... YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE DOWN OR HALF WAY DOWN...... I'M SURE THE LAND WILL BE FLAT-SIH BECAUSE IT WAS USED AND SO THAT MEANS IT HAS TO HAVE SOME REALLY NICE SPOTS.....

IT'S TERRIBLE THAT ANYONE WOULD WANT TO START A FIRE...... BUT THERE IS PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT JUST LIVE TO TRY AND MAKE CIAOS FOR OTHERS........ THEY ARE MISERABLE AND WANT TO MAKE WHOEVER ELSE JUST AS MISERABLE,.... AND BEING IN A STEEL BOX IS THE RIGHT THING FOR THEM KIND.....

OKAY I WILL BE GOING TO RUN SOME ERRANDS AND GET GROCERY'S.... SO I MIGHT BE LATE COMING BACK.

IT'S 2016..

SHERRY, TRISH IS NOT GOING WITH US THIS TIME, SO IT WILL BE ANOTHER CHANCE FOR JUST THE TWO OF US. TRISH IS HAVING TO GET ANOTHER OF THOSE AWFUL CORTIZONE INJECTIONS, THE LAST OF THREE, AND IT TAKES UP TO SIX MONTHS FOR HER TO SEE IF THEY ARE WORKING. THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING FOR HER RIGHT SHOULDER SO WE ARE NOT HOLDING OUT HIGH HOPES THAT SHE WILL NOT HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY ON HER LEFT ALSO. IT IS HER DECISION BUT, AS SHE SAYS, SHE WOULD JUST NOT BE COMFORTABLE SO WOULDN'T ENJOY IT.

THE SITE I AM LOOKING AT IS ACTUALLY ON THE SAME DRIVE AND IF THE INFORMATION IS CORRECT THE PLACE IS NOT USED ANY LONGER FOR WHAT IT WAS INTENDED. IT WAS ORIGINALLY A YOUTH CAMPING SITE FOR THE LIOKES OF THE SCOUTS OR OTHER YOUTH ORGANISATIONS AND IT WOULD BE IDEAL IF WE CAN GET A VEHICLE DOWN TO IT AND WOULD DEFINITELY BE BETTER THAN THE SITE I USED LAST YEAR. OK, IT IS ON A DIFFERENT LOCH, BUT AT LEAST I WOULD HAVE THE SAME BACKUP I HAVE NOW, AND TO ME THAT S MOST IMPORTANT FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. I STILL HAVE TO TAKE EVERYTHING WITH ME AS THERE ARE NO FACILITIES BUT THAT IS WHAT I LIKE ANYHOW AND I KNOW THE AREA WILL BE FLAT-ISH AND I SUSPECT WILL BE A LOT DRIER AS WELL. FINGERS CROSSED.

AS FOR THE FIRES; IT IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE SCOTTISH FORESTRY COMMISION HAS PERSUADED THE GOVERNMENT TO BACK THE CESSATION OF TRUE WILD CAMPING IN CEERTAIN AREASS. THE MINORITY CAUSE A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH DRUNKENESS, LITTER AND GENERALLY NOT ADHERING TO THE COUNTRY CODE OR EVEN LOCAL BY-LAWS. OUR LAND REFORM ACT STATWES THAT WILD CAMPING IS INTRINSIC TO THE SCOTTISH PEOPLE AND THIS GOES AGAINST IT, AND IT WILL ALSO MEAN THAT SOMEHOW THE COMMISSION IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIND EXTRA STAFF FROM AN ALREADY UNDERSTAFFED ORGANISATION AS ALL OF THESE SITES WILL HAVE TO BE POLICED. THEY WILL STILL BE USED FOR CAMPING BUT I FEAR THAT THISS COULD SPREAD AND THAT WOULD TAKE A LOT OF THE FUN OUT OF CAMPING FOR MOST OF THE GENUINE CAMPERS. WE ARE NOT INTO FORMAL SITES WHERE, APARTF ROM THE FACT THEY CAN BE EXPENSIVE, WE DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND TO SITE RULES AND REGULATIONS OR HAVE TO BE MINDFUL OF OYUR NEIGHBOUR IN THE NEXT PITCH DOWN. NORMALLY, IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE TENT THEN WE TEND TO GET TOGETHER AND HAVE A NATTER AND ENJOY EACH OTHER'S COMPANY WHILST AT THE SAME TIME GIVING EACH OTHER OUR OWN SPACE. HAVING TO CONFINE OUR ACTIVITIES IS NOT WHAT IT IS ABOUT, BUT IT IS ALWAYS THE MINORITY THAT SPOIL IT FOR THE REST OF US. IN THE CASE OF THE FIRE; IF IT IS PROVEN TO HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY EITHER CARELESSNESS OR DELIBERATELY THEN I HOPE THEY CAN FIND THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE, LOCK THEM UP IN A CAGE AND THROW AWAY THE KEY. PEOPLE LIKE THAT DO NOT DESERVE TO BE LET LOOSE.

OKAY, THAT IS ME. I AM HEADING OFF TO MY BED AS I HAVE TO GET THE FIRST BUS INTO TOWN, WHICH MEANS AN EARLY WAKE UP. GOODNIGHT SHERRY. ENJOY YOUR EVENING. SEE YOU TOMORROW FOR TRUE OR FALSE.

I MUST ADMIT THAT BOTH MARY AND I SLEPT LIKE LOGS LAST NIGHT. THE RELAXATION DID US BOTH GOOD AND I WOULD LOVE TO DO MORE OF IT WITH JUST THE TWO OF US.

WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING THAT AWFUL FOREST FIRE I FORT MCMURRAY AND IT IS SO TRAGIC THAT THE WHOLE TOWN MAY BE LOST IF IT CANNOT BE BROUGHT UNDER CONTROL SOON. ALREADY A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE LOST EVERYTHINNG AND I FEAR IT WILL BE SOME TIME BEFORE THEY KNOW THE REAL CAUSE OF IT. WHAT RANKLES IS THAT IT MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY CARELESSNESS OR EVEN DELIBERATELY.

NOTHING MUCH ELSE TO SAY REALLY. THE ROUTINE GOES ON AND I WILL BE OUT AND ABOUT AGAIN TOMORROW AS I HAVE TO GO TO TOWN TO OUR BUILDING SOCIETY TO GET SOME INFORMATION AS IT COULD MEAN PAYING LESS FOR OUR LIFE ASSURANCE. NATURALLY I WILL CALL IN AT THE CAFE AT THE SAME TIME, LOL.

AM NOW GOING OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD TO SEE WHO HAS BEEN IN AND THEN TO THE LOG IN POINT ONE WITH A FINAL RETURN HERE T4O CHCECK IF I HAVE THE ANSWERS FROM YOU.

HAVE A SUPER DAY SHERRY.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YES SHERRY, SOME VERY STRANGE SUPERSTITIONS INDEED.

AS FOR THE BAND STATUS QUO, THEY ARE FAMED FOR THEIR VARIATIONS ON THE THREE CHORD 12 BAR ROC K ND ROLL/BLUES RIFF. THEIR FIRST HIT WAS A SONG CALLED PICTURES OF MATCHSTICK MEN AND THAT DATES BACK TO 1968. THEY ARE STILL TOURING AND ARE STILL PACKING THEM IN. THEY NEVER REALLY MADE IT IN AMERICA BUT ARE REALLY HUGE HERE AND YET THEY HAVE NIT RELEASED A NEW RECORD IN YEARS. ONE OF THEIR MOST FAMOUS IS A SONG CALLED SWEET CAROLINE AND I AM SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FIND IT ON YOU TUBE. THEY ARE A FUN BAND WITH A ROCKING STAGE SHOW WHICH NEVER FAILS TO GET THE AUDIENCCE UP DANCING AND SINGING ALONG.

THANK YOU FOR GOING OVER TO RAD THE BLOG. THOUGHT YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN THE CANADIAN CONNECTION. OF COURSE THERE IS A LOT MORE TO THE STORY BUT I WAS NOT WRITING A HISTORY BOOK, LOL. I JUST FIND IT SAD THAT IN NOVA SCOTIA THE KIDS GET TO LEARN THE SCOTS NATIVE TONGUE AND YET THEY DO NOT TEACH IT HERE. IT IS ONLY PASSED ON FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION AND THAT IS MOSTLY IN THE NORTHERN ISLES SUCH AS THE SHETLANDS AND THE ORKNEYS. I LEARNED ABOUT THIS BY WAY OF A TV DOCUMENTARY WHICH IS WHY I WAS NOT SURE IF THIS IS STILL THE CASE AS A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE SAYING THIS WAS OUTDATED AND NOT RELEVANT ANY LONGER.

AS FOR THE TRIP ITSELF, I THINK IT WAS WHAT WE NEEDED. MARY DID DO A FAIR BIT OF DRIVING IN THE END BUT SOME WAS HER SUGGESTION AND SOME WAS MINE. IT WAS QUITE FUNNY AS BOTH OF US WERE FALLING ASLEEP IN OUR SEATS WATCHING TV EARLIER ON, LOL.

AS YOU WILL READ IN MY CHAT POST I AM WORRIED NOW ABOUT MY CAMPING TRIP AS WE DID A RECCE TODAY AND THE GROUND IS STILL VERY WET. I AM HOPING THAT THE HEATWAVE THAT IS FORECAST DRIES IT ALL OUT AS OTHERWISE I AM GOING TO BE IN TROUBLE. I DO NOT REALLY WANT TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE DRIVE AS I HAVE BACKUP THEIR WHEREAS IF I MOVE ELSEWHERE THAT WILL NOT BE THE CASE.

ANYWAY, THAT IS ME FOR THE DAY. I AM OFF TO BED FOR A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP. IT IS PJ DAY TOMORROW AS I HAVE A PILE OF WASHING TO GET DONE AND SUBSEQUENTLY A LOT OF IRONING AS WELL. A HOUSEWIFE'S JOB IS NEVER DONE, LOL.

HOPE YOU HAVE A SUPER EVENING SHERRY. SEE YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.

2. In China opening an umbrella inside the house will lead to what?

by spitting on your shoes and not looking back until the saliva has dried

NEEDLESS TO SAY I DID NOT DO ALL THAT WELL WITH THESE. BEST OF LUCK.

JUST TO MENTION THAT OUR TRIP WAS RELAXING AND WE ENDED UP AT A MARITIME MUSEUM. THERE IS A BLOG ON MY SPARK PAGE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

SORRY I AM A BIT LATE BACK SHERRY BUT HAVE JUST WATCHED THE LAST SESSION OF THE WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL AND IT HAS JUST FINISHED. MARY IS IN BED SO SHE WILL BE THANKFUL AS I NOW HAVE THE TV TURNED OFF, LOL.

A BIT OF A DAMP SQUIB WEATHER WISSE TODAY AND ALTHOUGH WE WERE EXPECTING THE GARDENER TO COME WE ARE NOT SURPRISED HE DID NOT AS THE GRASS WAS JUST GOING TO BE TOO WET TO TRY AND CUT. NOT JUST THAT BUT HE NEEDS TO REPOT SOME OF THE APPLE TREES TO GET RID PF A WEED THAT HAS BECOME INVASIVE. IN FACT HE HAS A BIT TO DO ON HIS VISIT SO HE WILL BE EARNING HIS MONEY.

SO AN INDOOR DAY FOR ME TODAY BUT WILL NOT B TOMORROW. IN FACT I WILL NOT BE HERE TOMORROW AS MARY AND I ARE AWAY ON THAT NIGHT IN THE HOTEL WHICH OUR SON BOUGHT FOR US. IT IS ONLY THE ONE NIGHT THOUGH SO I WILL BE BACK ON WEDNESDAY. I WILL BE TAKING THE CAMERA BUT AM NOT SURE IF I WILL GET TO USE IT. IT DEPENDS ON TWO THINGS. ONE OF THEM IS THE WEATHER BUT THE OTHER IS MARY AND WHAT SHE WANTS TO DO. SO I AM NOT PROMISING ANY PHOTOS BUT WILL TRY MY BEST. I AM ALWAYS BEING CHASTISED BUT HEH GIRLS WHENVER WE GO OUT AS I LIKE TO TAKE LOADS OF PICTURES AND THEN SRT THE BET OF THEM OUT TO KEEP BUT THE GIRLS DO NOT APPRECIATE STOPPING AND STARTING ALL THE TIME, AND I CAN SEE THEIR POINT OF VIEW.

ANYWAY, I STILL HAVE THE CHAT THREAD AND THE LOG IN POINTS ONE TO GO TO SO I WILL SAY GOODNIGHT TO YOU HERE AND HOPE YOU HAVE A REALLY GOOD DAY TOMORROW.

SEE YOU ON WEDNESDAY.

SHERRY, THE TENTEM. IT WAS THE GUY ROPES AND I LITERALLY ONLY JUST SQUEEZED THEM INTO THE SPACE I HAD. THE TENT ITSELF TAKES UP NEARLY ALL OF MY SMALL LAWN SPACE.

ANYWAY, ONTO TODAY'S QUIZ WHICH, AS USUAL, IS AN EASY STARTER. FROM THE CLUES, NAME THE ARTIST.

1. When my bit of fluff decided that she couldn't turn off the red light, her news had me "Driven To Tears." But then I thought to myself, "Why Should I Cry For You?" Who am I?

Bono.
Nena.
Elvis.
Sting.

2. My old boyfriend left "Skidmarks On My Heart", and every time I'm around the new guy "I Get Weak" and lose my lunch. What's a girl to do? Who am I?

Belinda Carlisle.
Deborah Harry.
Chrissie Hynde.
Susana Hoffs.

3. My main bird "Gloria" and I kept some rather odd hours, and her temper was as short as she was. Needless to say when she found out about my "Brown Eyed Girl" on the side, she went completely mental. Who am I?

Marion Morrison.
Jim Morrison.
Van Morrison.
Toni Morrison.

BEST OF LUCK ALTHOUGH I AM SURE YOU WILL NOT NEED IT WITH THIS ONE. AM GOING TO BE WATCHING SOME TV WITH THE GIRLS THIS EVENING SO MAY BE A LITTLE LATER IN THAN USUAL TO ANSWER YOURS.

WHAT A WAY TO END THE WEEK, SHERRY. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon A QUICK EXPLANATION. MY FAIR LADY IS BASED ON PYGMALIAN, A CYPRIOT SCULPTOR WHO ULTIMATELY FELL IN LOVE WITH ONE OF HIS IVORY STATUES WHICH WAS GIVEN LIFE BY APHRODITE AFTER A REQUEST AND HE SUBSEQUENTLY MARRIED HER. URANUS IS BASED ON CHARAC TERS BY BOTH WILLIAM SHAKEPEARE AND ALEXANDER POPE. FINALLY, PHOBIS IS INDEED BASED ON PHOBOS BUT HE WAS ONE OF THW TWO SONS OF ARES AND NOT HADES. SO VERY emoticon

GOT INTO TOWN THIS MORNING AND SPENT THE BULK IF IT IN THE CAFE AS PLANNED. I DID TAKE TIME OUT TO VISIT THE BARBER FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME SINCE LEAVING SAUDI AS MARY NORTMALLY CUTS MY HAIR, BIT AFTER THE HECTIVE WEEK WE HAVE HAD I WAS ASKED TO GO THIS TIME. AS IT TURNED OUT IT IS A SMALL WORLD AS THE BARBER TURNED OUT TO BE THE NIECE OF OUR FORMER NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOURS WHO USED TO LIVE IN THE VILLAGE HERSELF AND STILL HAS HER MUM AND DAD LIVING THERE. I ALSO MET TRISH IN TOWN AS SHE WAS IN DOING SOME SHOPPING. IT WAS NICE AS WE WERE ABLE TO SIT AND HAVE A COFFEE TOGETHER, A RARITY THESE DAYS.

THIS AFTERNOON THE WEATHER CHANGED COMPLETLY AND AFTER THE SNOW OF LAST NIGHT AND THE RAIN THIS MORNING, WE FINALLY HAD DRY WEATHER COMING IN AND EFVFEN SOME HAZY SINSHINE, ALTHOUGH OUR TEMPERATURE PEAKED AT JUST 7°C. STILL, IT WAS ENOUGH FOR ME TO FINALLY GET A PRACTICE PITCH IN OF THE NEW TENT. FULLY ERECTED IT DOWSTAKE UP THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR LAWN AND I BARELY HAD ENOUGH SPACE TO GUY IT. STILL, IT IS UP NOW NAD WILL BE UP OVERNIGHT AS THE TEMPS ARE DUE TO BE A BIT WARMER TOMORROW AND WITHOUT THE WIND CHILL. IN THE END IT TOOK AROUND THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AS IT TAKES TO ERECT THE OLD TNT. THE DIFFERENCE WAS THAT I FOUND IT EASIER TO DO AND THE RECOVERY TIME FOR MY BACK WAS SO MUCH QUICKER. THE ONLY THING I CAN PUT THAT DOWN TO IS THE FACT THAT WITH THE SMALLER TENT I HAVE TO BEND DOWN TO PULL THE THING INTO POSTION WHEREAS WITH THIS ONE I AM ABLE TO STAND UPRIGHT AND ONLY HAVE TO BEND TO PUT THE PEGS IN THE GROUND. EVEN MARY WAS TAKEN ABACK BY THE SIZE OF IT BUT I AM NOT GING TO TAKE ANY PHOTOS YET AS IT IS JUST A BARE SHELL. I WILL WAIT UNTIL I AM ON CAMP AND THEN IT WILL HAVE ALL THE BITS AND PIECES INSIDE SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO REALLY GUAGE IT.

SO, OVERALL, A VERY GOOD DAY AND ONE THAT HAS BEEN PRODUCTIVE FOR ME. IT ALSO PROVED TO THE GIRLS THAT IC OULD PUT THE TENT UP BY MYSELF, WHICH IS ONE OF THEIR BIG CONCERNS. THEY WOULD NOT BELIEVE THAT ONCE YOU HAVE THE PRINCIPLE DOWN PAT OF PUTTINF A TUNNEL TENT UP THEN IT IS FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD UP TO AROUND THE SIZE OF THIS TENT. ANY VIGGER THEN YOU WOULD NEED A COUPLE OF PEOPLE BUT EVEN THEN IT IS THE SAME METHOD.

THAT IS ME NOW. HAVE STILL TO GO OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD AND ALSO TO THE LOG IN POINTS ONE BUT THEN I AM OUT OF HERE.

HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR PIZZA THIS EVENING SHERRY. I BID YOU GOODNIGHT AND I HOPE TO CHAT WITH YOU OVER THE WEEKEND.

SHERRY, I AM PURELY GUESSING ON THESE. I AM GOING WITH WHAT I RECKON IS THE DAFTEST OF THE ANSWERS AS THAT IS MY FORM OF PERVERSE LOGIC, LOL.

1. A SINGLE BOLT OF LIGHTNING KILLED THE ENTIRE BENA TSHADI TEAM.

2. A SCARAB BEETLE FLEW THROUGH THE WINDOW.

3. THEY BOTH WERE SUFFERING FROM MEASLES.


MY TRUE OR FALSE TODAY CONCERNS MYTHOLOGY. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NOT ALL IS AS IT SEEMS.

1. WE ARE ALL FAMILIAR WITH FILMS SICH AS THE CLASH OF THE TITANS; BASED ON SEVEREL MYTHOLOGIAL TALES, BUT WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT, THE MUSICAL 'MY FAIR LADY' IS BASED UPON MYTHOLOGY AS WELL.

2. URANUS IS THE ONLY PLANET, APART FROM EARTH, WHOSE MOONS DO NOT HAVE MYTHOLOGICAL NAMES.

3. THE WORD PHOBIA IS DERIVED FROM PHOBOS, MYTHOLOGICAL SON OF HADES.

BEST OF LUCK. CHAT LATER.

FRIDAYS TRIVIA......


1. On October 25 1988, a soccer game took place in the Congo between the two teams Bena Tshadi and Basangana. What incredibly unfortunate thing happened during the match?

All 22 players fell ill with food poisoning at the same time and had to leave the pitch
A single bolt of lightning killed the entire Bena Tshadi team
A huge bird landed on the pitch and flew away with the ball
The whole Basangana team were injured in separate incidents and were all forced to spend the night in hospital



2. The famous pyschologist, Carl Jung, experienced a strange coincidence during an analysis session with a patient. The patient was describing to Jung a dream she'd had about an Egyptian scarab beetle. What happened next?

Jung told the woman that he had also dreamed about scarab beetles the night before
Jung's next patient also described a dream about an Egyptian scarab beetle
A scarab beetle flew through the window
Jung spotted a book about scarab beetles lying on his desk



3. Another coincidence, documented by the scientist Paul Kammerer, tells of two men admitted to the same hospital during World War II. Which of these statements is not true?

They were both named Franz Richter
They were both suffering from measles
They were both nineteen years old
They were both volunteers in the Austrian Transport Corps

DO NOT KNOW WHAT ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT BUT I DO HOPE THAT SOMETHING HAPPENS AND WE START TO GET BACK TO WHAT WAS QUITGE A BUSY THREAD WHCIH YOU JUST COULD NOT KEEP UP WITH IF YOU WERE MIA FOR EVEN A COUPLE OF DAYS.

OH YES FOR SURE IT WILL COME IN HANDY........... SINCE IT COLLAPSES DOWN AND GOES INTO A CARRY BAG......... I CAN BET THAT WASN'T CHEAP....NOW YOU HAVE A GREAT COOKER WHILE CAMPING.

I'VE ACTUALLY HAD FRIES WITH MAYO AND I LIKED THEM............. THIS PLACE CALLED NEW YORK FRIES WAS NEW TO US AND SINCE THEN THEY ARE THE ONLY PLACE I CAN FIND THOSE KINDS OF FRIES....... THEY ALSO SERVED SPICE WITH THEM........ AND USED SOME KIND OF SPICE WHILE COOKING THEM............. BOY WERE THEY GOOD.

WE HAVE THIS TOWN NOT FAR FROM US WHERE WE GO EVERY NOW AND THEN......... IT'S ALL GERMAN PEOPLE AND THEY HAVE THIS MEAT PLACE AND SELL THE BEST SAUSAGE AND BEER SAUSAGE I'VE EVER TASTED........... AND WE HAVE TO DRIVE OUT THERE TO GET IT........... THEY OFFER A LOT MORE STUFF THAT'S GERMAN COOKING.

OUR TOWN HAS LOTS OF PEOPLE FROM GERMANY AND THE UKRAIN......(SPELLING)........... MY LAST DH WAS FROM THE UKRAIN....... THEN NOT FAR FROM US AGAIN IS A VILLAGE THEY STILL HAVE THE MUD HOMES AND HORSE STABLES THE WHOLE BIT.......... IT'S MADE INTO A BIG TOURIST PLACE JUST TO WALK AROUND AND SEE ALL THE THINGS FROM BACK IN THE DAY......... THEY COOK OVER OPEN FIRE...... AND THE DRUGSTORE STILL HAVE MED'S FROM BACK IN THE DAY.......... WELL NOT REAL MED'S BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN............ THAT'S WHERE WE MET OMA AND LEN ONE YEAR.....

YOU SAYING THE SPA WILL BE IN THE FRONT YARD..... I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO COME THERE TO JOIN THEM..... THEN TRISH CAN DO A BBQ FOR ME..... LOL......... DON'T YOU THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER IN YOUR NEW AREA IN THE BACK YARD..... WE HAVE SOCKETS ON THE HOUSE OUTSIDE.........

SHERRY, THE CAMPING KITCHEN IS NOT ON WHEELS. IT IS ALMOST LIKE A FLAT BACK WHICH YOU BUILD UP EACH TIME, AND IT COLLAPSES DOWN TO GO INTO A CARRY BAG. I DID NOTICE THAT IT WAS QUITE HEAVY SO THANK GOODNESS IT WILL NOT HAVE TO BE MOVED VERY FAR FROM THE CAR TO THE PITCH SITE.

I DO SO WISH WE HAD AN OKTOBERFEST HERE. THERE ARE SOME TOWNS WHERE ONCE A MONTH THEY HAVE THE GERMANS AND FRENCH COME OVER TO SELL THEIR WARES AND THAT INCLUDES THE FAMOUS BRATWURST AND SCHNITZEL STANDS. THEY CALL THEM SCNELLIMBISS IN GERMANY WHICH BASICALLY MEANS FAST FOOD AND THE STANDARD FOR FRIES ARE SWERVED COVERED WITH MAYONNAISE AND IF YOU WANT KETCHUP INSTEAD OR NOTHING AT ALL THEN YOU HAVE TO SAY. FRIES AND MAYO IS NOT MY THING BUT THE GIRLS LIKE IT. I WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK TO GERMANY AS THEIR FOOD IS OUT OF THIS WORLD. ALSO, IF YOU TRY AND SPEAK A FEW WORDS TO THEM THEY WILL GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU OUT. IT IS ONLY IGNORANT SOLDIERS WHO REFUSE TO LEARN EVEN A FEW WORDS SUCH AS PLEASE AND THANK YOU THAT THEY LET STRUGGLE, AND I HAVE SEEN IT HAPPEN. I ASKED WHY AND IT WAS EXPLAINED TO ME THAT THIS WAS THEIR COUNTRY AND ANYONE WHO WAS LIVING AND WORKING IN IT SHOULD BE AT LEAST DECENT ENOUGH TO TRY AND LEARN A LITTLE INSTEAD OF EXPECTING THEM TO SPEAK ENGLISH. THE BRITS ARE NOT SO BAD BUT I AM AFRAID THAT THE AMERICANS ARE NOT LIKED AT ALL AS THEY ARE THE WORST AND TRY TO TURN EVERYWHERE THEY GO INTO LITTLE AMERICA, AND THAT DOES NOT GO DOWN WELL WITH THE LOCALS. I THINK YOU WOULD LOVE THE PLACE AND ALSO THE DIFFERENT AREAS. I HAVE BEEN TO MANY OF THE PLACES IN CENTRAL GERMANY AND HAVE ALSO BEEN AS FAR SOUTH AS BAVARUA AND BOY CAN THE DIALECTS CHANGE. I THOUGHT OUR COUNTRY WAS BAD BUT IN FARMING COUNTRY IT IS A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE WHICH IS CALLED PLAT DEUTCH. IN BAVARIA IT IS ALSO WEIRD BECAIUSE ALTHOUGH THEY UNDERSTAND REGULAR GERMAN THERE ARE ALSO INFLUENCES FROM AUSTRIA AND THAT ALSO MAKES LIFE DIFFICULT. MEMORIES, SHERRY. WHEN YOU GAVE ME THIS QUIZ IT BROUGH SUCH A LOT OF THEM BACK TO ME. I FIRST WENT TO GEREMANY AT THE AGE OF 14 WHEN ALL I KNEW WAS A BIT OF SCHOOLBOY GERMAN AND THEN I SPENT A TOTAL OF 7 YEARS THERE IN TWO DIFFERENT BASE LOCATIONS WITH THE ARMY WHERE I LEARNT TO ACTUALLY HOLD A CONVERSATION IN THE LANGUAGE AND I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. SO DID MARY AS WELL AND THE ONE THING THAT DID COME OUT OF IT WAS THE BIRTH OF TRISH AS SHE WAS BORN OVER THERE. CRIKEY, THAT IS 34 YEARS AGO NOW AND I CAN STILL REMEMBERE IT ALL SO VIVIDLY.

ANYWAY, ENOUGH OF ME REMINISCING. I AM SURE YOU HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TO ALLOW ME TO RAMBLE ON. I CAN ANSWER YOU QUESTION ABOUT THE SPA. BECAUSE IT IS AN INFLATABLE IT CAN BE COLLAPSED DURING THE WINTER AND PUT UP AGAIN DURING THE SUMMER SO IT WOULD PROBABLY LIVE OUTSIDE ON THE FRONT PATIO. ALL IT WOULD REQUIRE IS AN EXTENSION LEAD TO PUG INTO AN INDOOR SOCKET, AND THAT WOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM AS A LEAD COULD EASILY GO THROUGH THE BACK WINDOW. AND YES, IT IS JUST LIKE ONE OF THOSE WHIRLPOOL BATHS AND HAS BOTH A TENPERATURE REGULATOR AND A JET REGULATOR. IT SAYS YOU CAN SIT FOUR IN IT BUT I WOULD NOT LIKE TO TRY THAT. IT IS, HOWEVER, CERTAINLY BIG ENOUGH FOR THE TWO OF THEM TO SIT IN AND RELAX. WE WOULD, HOWEVER, HAVE TO MIND THE GRANDKIDS IF THEY CAME UP, LOL. IT WORKS OUT CHEAPER THAN A HOT TUB, WHICH WOULD HAVE TO BE PLUMBED IN AND WOULD BE STATIC, AND WOULD BE SUITABLE FOR OUR SMALL GARDEN AS IT COULD BE MOVED ANYWHERE, EVEN ONTO THE LAWN AS THAT GETS THE MOST SUNSHINE.

THAT IS ME FOR THE DAY. HAVE BEEN OVER TO CHAT AND BASICALLY TOLD THEM THE SAME AS I TOLD YOU HERE SO NO NEED TO READ MY POST. SADLY I HAVE NOTICED THAT THER ARE ONLY FIVE OF US WHO NOW CHAT REGULARLY, DEBBIE, STARR, MARY, LINDA AND MYSELF, AND ONKLY OCCASIONALLY DOES ANYONE ELSE DROP IN. OVER THE PAST WEEK I HAVE ONLY HAD TO ANSWER A COUPLE OF POSTS AT A TIME AND I JUST WONDER WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO CAUSE THIS.

ANYWAY, I AM GOING TO WISH YOU A VERY RELAXING EVENING AHEAD. AS I HAVE DONE PREVIOUSLY I GOT MY DAYS MIXED UP AS I SAID THERE WAS ONLY ONE QUIZ LEFT THIS WEEK WHEN OF COURSE TOMORROW IS THURSDAY AND NOT FRIDAY. ANOTHER CASE OF BRAIN FADE, LOL.

I AM GOING TO BID YOU GOODNIGHT AND WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. SWEET DREAMS TONIGHT SHERRY.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon MAC.......... YOU ACED IT TOO............. I'M NOT SURPRISED THAT YOU KNEW THE ANSWERS......... WE DO HAVE MUSEUMS IN CANADA ALSO............ PLUS THERE IS THE OCTOBER FEST WHICH IS ALL THE DIFFERENT CULTURES FOOD......... THEY COME FROM ALL OVER THE PLACE....... AND THE GERMAN WAS ONE BOOTH I REALLY LIKED THEIR SAUSAGE...... THEY SELL BEAR PAWS........ IT'S A GLAZED PASTRY...... BUT NO DOUGHNUT HOLE......

OH I KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT NOW............ IT SOUNDS LIKE SOME OF THE MICROWAVE STANDS WE HAVE.......... CUPBOARD SPACE AND THE FLAT TOP TO SET THE COOKER OR HERE MICROWAVE...... THAT WILL SURE COME IN HANDY.......... HOW DOES IT MOVE?............. OUR STANDS HAVE WHEELS BUT THAT WOULDN'T WORK OUT AT THE CAMP SITE...... THOSE GAS CANISTERS ARE ALSO VERY USEFUL WHEN CAMPING OUT.

THE SPA FOR THE GIRLS SOUNDS LOVELY........ IS IT LIKE SOMETHING THEY CAN SIT IN?........... IF SO WHERE WOULD YOU PUT IT........ YOU CAN BUY THOSE BATHROOM TUBS WITH THE WHIRL WITH JETS AND ALL THE FANCY STUFF....... EITHER WAY THE GIRLS WILL LOVE TO BE ABLE TO DO THEIR OWN SPA..........

SHERRY, I KNOW THESE AS I SPENT A FEW YEARS LIVING IN GERMANY AND CAME ACROSS ALL OF THESE THINGS, INCLUDING FOOD HISTORY AND TRADITIONS, AS THE GERMANS ARE ONLY TOO READY TO IMPART INFORMATION SHOULD YOU WANT TO KNOW. THERE ARE MUSEUMS ALL OVER THE PLACE, INCLUDING GASTRONOMY ONES, WHICH I FOUND TO BE OF GREAT INTEREST OF COURSE. I DO NOT KNOW OF ANY IN THE UK. ARE THERRE ANY IN CANADA?

1. VEAL CUTLET, (MY FAVOURITE SCHNITZEL).

2. HE PROMOTED CULTIVATION OF POTATOES.

3. JELLY DOUGHNUTS, (OR JAM DOUGHNUTS AS WE CALL THEM. PREFER BEARS PAWS MYSELF, LOL. INCIDENTALLY, THE GERMANS WOULD NEVEER SAY 'ICH BIN EIN BERLINER' AS THAT, LITERALLY TRANSLATED MEANS, I AM A JELLY DOUGHNUT. INSTEAD THEY WOULD SAY ICH BIN BERLINER AND LEAVE IT AT THAT).

TO EXPLAIN A CAMP KITCHEN; IT IS THE BASE ON WHICH YOU PUT YOUR COOKER, A WORK SHELF, A SHELF FOR YOUR POTS AND PANS PLUS AN OPEN CUPBOARD TO STORE EXTRAS IN. THE COOKER I USE IS A SELF CONTAINED UNIT WHICH RUNS ON INDIVIDUAL GAS CANNISTERS SO NO NEED TO PACK THE HUGE AND HEAVY CAMPING GAZ OR PROPANE ONES. THEY ARE ALSO SELF LIGHTING SO NO NEED FOR MATCHES OR A LIGHTER EITHER, AND I ALWAYS TAKE TWO, ONE AS A BACKUP AND THAT HAS PROVEN TO BE A WISE MOVE IN THE PAST. OK, THERE IS ONLY ONE BURNER ON IT BUT I SEE THERE IS NOW A TWO BURNER MODEL OUT ALTHOUGH THAT REQUIRES 2 OF THE GAS CANNISTERS AT A TIME, BUT THEN AGAIN IT WOOULD CUT DOWN THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU WOULD NEED TO USE IT.

YES, I ADMIT THAT AT TIMES I AM SPOILT, WHICH IS WHY I LIKE TOTREAT THE GIRLS EERY NOW AND THEN. THEY DO NOT KNOW IT BUT I ALREADY HAVE A JOINT CHRISTMAS PRESENT PLANNED FO RHTEM. THEY HAVE BOTH SEEN THIS INFLATABLE SPA COMPLETE WITH WATER JETS AND ALL. THERE IS EVEN AN ELECTRIC PUMP SO YOU DO NOT NEED ANY EFFORT TO PUMP IT UP. IF I CAN STILL GET IT AROUND NOVEMBER TIME I WILL ORDER IT FOR THEM AND WHAT A SURPRISE THAT WILL BE. BUT AS FOR THE CAMPING, ALL I WANTED WAS SA CHEAP SMALL TABLE ON WHICH TO SAFELY PUT THE COOKER ON. NO WAY DID I EXPECT THIS SO IT WAS A NICE SURPRISE. AS FOR WANTING ANY MPORE STUFF; I DOUBT I WOULD HAVE ROOM, LOL. NO, I HAVE ALL THAT I COULD EVER DREAM OF HAVING TO MAKE CAMPING A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE. THE ONLY THING NOW IS A BIGGER CAR TO CARRY IT ALL IN, LOL. I KNOW I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE, BUT HONESTLY, WHAT MORE WOULD I WANT, LET ALONE NEED? NOW IT IS REALLY TIME TO CONCENTRATE ON THE GIRLS FOR A WHILE.

FINALLY FOR THE MOMENT, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YOU ACED IT AGAIN TODAY SO THAT ONLY LEAVES ONE MORE.

HOPE YOUR DAY IS PASSING NICELY. CATCH UP LATER WITH YOU.

HI SHERRY.

YES, NORMALLY I AM UP WHEN YOU GET BACK FROM SHOPPING BUT IT WAS A REALLY LONG DAY AND WE WERE ALL QUITE TIRED SO WE CANNOT HAVE BEEN TOO FAR BEHIND EACH OTGHER.

NEVER MIND. THERE IS ALWAYS TODAY AND I HAVE BEEN TREATED. HAVE NOT A CLUE WHY BUT MAMRY AND TRISH WENT TO THE OTHER WAREHOUSE PLUS A COUPLE OF EXTRA PACES AND CAME BACK WITH, AMONGST THE STUFF THEY WENT FOR, A CAMP KITCHEN UNIT FOR ME. THIS WILL MEAN I DO NOT HAVE TO BALANCE MY COOKER ON TOP OF ITS COVER ON A PLASTIC WOBBLY TABLE ANY MORE. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE TO DESERVE IT BUT I MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING RIGHT FOR A CHANGE, LOL.

ANYWAY, TO THE QUIZ. FIRST OFF emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon FOR YESTERDAY. I WASN'T SURE IF THIS CAME UNDER YOUR SPHERE OF INTEREST BUT NO PROBLEMS FOR YOU. I THINK YOU WILL FIND TODAY'S QUIZ EVEN EASIER SINCE I AM IN A VERY GOOD MOOD, LOL.

1. Tasmania Highland Chevre Log

2. Blue Rathgore

3. Daralagjazsky


MINE IS IN COINSPIRACY THEORIES.

1. One slant on the Roswell incident is that an alien survived and was returned to his home planet of Zeta Reticuli. This led to a Project to manage the relationship between the US Government and their new friends up the road. What was the "secret" codename given to this project?

Operation Auca
Project Serpo
The Seattle Protocol
Fifth Element
2. Without us knowing, aliens, governments and the Nestle Corporation have all sorts of space hardware in orbit beaming images and ideas into our heads. What is supposed to be the best defence against these space rays?

A dustbin lid
An aluminium umbrella
A tin foil hat
A cardboard box painted white
3. Some conspiracy theories are so elaborate that they become very hard to follow although someone has probably put a lot of work into creating them. For the interested layman there is a principle dating back to the 14th Century which should be taken into account when deciding whether it is worth a second look. That principle is...?

The Da Vinci Law
Garrett's Method
Hoopers Second Theory
Occam's Razor

BEST OF LUCK SHERRY.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon MAC.......... I KNEW YOU WOULD HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH MINE ALSO......

WOW THAT IS A VERY BIG TENT........... I HOPE YOU CAN DO IT WHEN YOUR CAMPING.......... WITH ONLY 3 POLES YOU WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE EASIER....... DOES THIS TENT HAVE A FLOOR OR IS IT THE GROUND IT SITS ON?

GOOD TO HEAR THEIR GOING TO MAKE THE CAFÉ BIGGER AND HAVE MORE FOOD TO CHOOSE FROM......... I KNOW EXACTLY THE KIND OF CAFÉ IT IS....... NEVER MIND COMING IN ALONE AND SITTING IN A CORNER HOPING NOBODY TALKS TO YOU....... THIS PLACE IS FAR TO FRIENDLY FOR THAT....... AND I LIKE THE IDEA OF NEW COSTUMERS COMING AND END UP STAYING.... FOR SURE IF HIS WIFE IS HAVING A BABY HE WILL HAVE TO HANDLE THINGS ON HIS OWN....... BUT HE HAS ENOUGH COSTUMERS THAT WILL BE WILLING TO GIVE HIM A HAND AND MAYBE EVEN TALK HIM THROUGH WHATEVER THE PROBLEM MAY BE.. NO KIDDING NEVER A DULL MOMENT AROUND THERE......... THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT SO WELCOMING...

GOOD TO KNOW YOU WILL CHECK TO SEE WHEN THIS SEASON COMES YOUR WAY OF THE BLACKLIST............. THIS IS ONE YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS BECAUSE IT ALL COMES TO A HEAD AND YOU WILL SEE THINGS MORE CLEARLY.......... BUT THEN EVERYTHING CHANGES AGAIN.......... WHAT A RIDE IT'S BEEN........

HOPE YOU HAVE A RELAXING EVENING MAC........... I JUST FINISHED COOKING SUPPER NOW I CAN GO KICK BACK FOR AWHILE.. emoticon
