HI MAC................ OMA LEFT AFTER WE HAD SUPPER............. THEY HAD TO GET BACK TO THE HOTEL IN EDMONTON AND PICK UP HER AUNT TO SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE HOTEL TOO........ SO SHE HAD A LOT MORE GOING ON........ I WAS WIPED OUT.........THEY ALSO GOT UP EARLY TO RUN TO THEIR NEPHEWS PLAY AT SCHOOL THE DAY THEY LEFT CALGARY..... SO IT'S ONE BUSY SCHEDULE FOR THE BOTH ALL WEEKEND..........

I HEAR YOU ON THE SPENDING........... I GUESS YOUR RIGHT IF I FIND NICE PLANTS I WILL BUY THEM........... WHEN DOUG IS AROUND HE USUALLY TELLS ME WE DON'T NEED IT...... SO I'M TAKING ADVANTAGE OF SPENDING WHILE HE'S GONE....... LOL..

I FIGURED AS MUCH THAT MARY WOULD GET HOME EAT WASH TV AND BED....... SO FOR SURE IT WAS A LONG DAY FOR HER......... I HOPE SHE HAS HER ENERGY BACK....

OKAY WE HAVE THE OLDER CAMERA AND IT HAS A CHIP I TAKE OUT AND PUT IN THE USB PORT.......... BUT THAT'S WHERE I HAVE A PROBLEM.......... I CAN'T SEEM TO GET IT IN THERE RIGHT AND I END UP PUSHING IT TOO FAR AND TAKING FOREVER TO GET IT BACK OUT......... I WAS TALKING TO DOUG LAST NIGHT AS I TOLD YOU I HAVE HIS IPHONE...... AND HE TAUGHT ME THE MAIN STUFF BEFORE HE LEFT.......... AND SO HE TOLD ME I COULD TAKE PICTURES WITH THE PHONE AND TOLD ME WHAT CORD I NEED TO PLUG IT IN TO THE USB PORT............. SO I THINK I'M GOING TO GIVE THAT A TRY AND SEE HOW THAT WORKS......

BUT OMA SAID WHEN SHE GETS HOME SHE WILL POST THEM........ WE BOTH TOOK A BUNCH OF MY VEGGIES FLOWERBEDS AND FRONT YARD........ AFTER WE BOUGHT THE PLANTS AND UNLOADED THEM WE TOOK MORE PICTURES.......... SO BETWEEN US THERE WILL BE A LOT TO SEE OF MY YARD.

THE WAY THINGS ENDED FOR YOU IS IT REALLY BRINGS OUR DOLLAR DOWN......... I GOT THE IMPRESSION THAT EVERYONE WANTED TO STAY IN EUROPE...... BUT YES YOU WILL SURVIVE........... WE NEVER LIKE HOW OURS GOES EITHER.

WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW........ emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon A SUPERB END TO THE WEEK FOR YOU ALSO.

OK SHERRY, YOU LAUGH AT ME WITH MY CAMPING GEAR AND THEN YOU GO TO A PLACE AND END UP SPENDING ON PLANTS LIKE THAT. I DON'T KNOW. TWO PEAS IN A POD I GUESS, LOL.

THE THING IS THAT I AM OUT OF BREATH JUST READING ABOUT WHAT YOU DID. WHAT AN AWESOME DAY YOU THREE HAD TOGETHER. HOW LONG IS OMA UP WITH YOU? WILL YOU GET CHANCE TO DO SOME MORE STUFF TOGETHER? I JUST FEEL SORRY FOR LEN WHO HAS TO PUT UP WITH THE TWO OF YOU TOGETHER, LOL.

IN THE END MARY GOT HOM AROUND 9PM. IT TOOK HER 3 HOURS TO DO A 45 MINUTE COMMUTE AND SHE THINKS THE TAFFIC JAM WAS CAUSED BY FLOODING ON THE ROAD AT ONE OF THE SMALL BRIDGES ON THE WAY HOME. SHE DID TRY TO GO ANOTHER WAY BUT OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF PEOPLE ALSO HAD THAT IDEA AS THAT WAS LOG JAMMED AS WELL. IT WAS VERY MUCH A CASE OF EATING A QUICK SUPPER, WATVHING TV FOR HALF AND HOUR JUST TO OME DOWN A BIT AND THEN BED. SHE LEFT AT 5.45AM SO IT WAS A REALLY LONG DAY FO HER.

I CAN TELL YOU HOW TO DOWNLOAD YOUR PICS SHERRY. YOU SHOULD HAVE A USB OR SOME FORM OF CONNECTION WHICH PLUGS INTO THE CAMERA AT ONE END AND YOUR COMPUTER AT THE OTHER. ONCE CONNECTED THE PC SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY PICK UP THAT YOU HAVE AN EXTERNAL SOURCE PLUGGED IN AND YOU JUST CLICK ON IT AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. IF USING WINDOWS IT WILL ASK YOU IF YOU WISH TO DOWNLOAD PICTURES AS ONE OF THE OPTIONS. YOOU CAN EVEN ERASE THE PICTURES FROM YOUR CAMERA AT THE SAME TIME AS IT WILL ASK YOU TO TICK A BOX IF YOU WISH TO DO THAT. THAT WILL DOWNLOAD TO YOUR PC AND THEN YOU KNOW HOW TO UPLOAD TO SPARK ANYWAY. GIVE IT A GO AS YOU WILL BE SURPRISED AT HOW EASY IT IS.

TODAY HAS BEEN A KICK BACK DAY. EVERYONE IS STILL COMING TO TERMS WITH THE FACT THAT THE REFERENDUM ENDED AS IT DID AND THOSE WHO VOTED TO REMAIN IN EUROPE DO NOT LIKE THE RESULT AND HAVE CALLED FOR A SECOND REFERENDUM, WHCIH THEY WILL NOT GET OF COURSE. SHOCK WAVES ARE RESOUNDING IN EUROPE AS THEY DID NOT EXPECT THE BRITISH PEOPLE TO VOTE TO LEAVE THE EU AND NOW THERE HAS BEEN QUITE A LOT OF KNEE JERK REACTION FROM THE EUROPEAN MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT. FORTUNATELY, THEY DO NOT HAVE A SAY AT THE MOMENT AS TO WHEN NEGOTIATIONS WILL START AND IT IS NOT GOING DOWN WELL. A LOT OF TURMOIL AHEAD I FEAR BUT WE WILL SURVIVE.

ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR WEEKEND WITH OMA AND I WILL CATCH UP AGAIN WITH YOU ON MONDAY WHEN YOU CAN TELL ME THAT YOU WENT TO MORE SHOPS AND SPENT OUT, LOL.

TAKE CARE SHERRY.

3. BULL SEMEN.


AS EVER ON A FRIDAY, IS IT TRUE OR IS IT FALSE?

1. If you find a defective state quarter, you could get a large prize from the U.S. mint.

2. CD purchasers can go to a website and claim money in a price-fixing lawsuit.

3. A 1997 episode of "Pokemon" triggered epileptic seizures in over 600 children.

BEST OF LUCK.


I CAN RECALL A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK WHEN OMA VISITED YOU AND YOU WENT ALL OVER THE PLACE WITH HER AND A HAD A GREAT TIME. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BOTH ENJOY CATCHING UP AND SIMPLY HAVE A BALL.

WILL NOT POP BACK NOW BUT COME IN TOMORROW WHEN WE CAN CHAT. RIGHT NOW I AM WORRIED AS MARY PHONED 2 HOURS AGO SAYING SHE WAS STICK IN A TRAFFIC JAM AND DID NOT KNOW WHAT TIME SHE WOULD BE HOME. SHE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY SHATTERED WHEN SHE DOES GET IN.

SO I WISH YOU AN ENJOYABLE EAVING WITH YOUR PIZZA. CATCH YOU AGAIN TOMORROW. SAY HI TO JEANETTE FROM ME PLEASE.

YES SHERRY, IT HAS BEEN A GOOD WEEK SO FAR. I WILL AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT TRISH AS SHE IS UNABLE TO EXERCISE AT ALL AND IT HURTS HER JUST TO STAND FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME. I CAM ALWAYS FIND STUFF TO DO TO RAISE A SWEAT AND MARY IS ACTIVE ENOUGH DURING THE WEEK SO NO PROBLEMS THERE.

I CAN IMAGINE THAT YOU WILL BE SWEATING BUCKETS. I DO NOT NORMALLY HAVE MY WINDOW OPEN AS IT IS ON THE ROAD SIDE OF THE HOUSE AND WE GET A FAIR BIT OF TRAFFIC COME THROUGH THE VILLAGE EVEN AT NIGHT BUT RIGHT NOW IT IS OPEN ALL OF THE TIME AS THE ROOM JUST GETS SO HOT AND STUFFY THAT I WAKE UP DRENCHED AND IT IS SO UNCOMFORTABLE. WE ARE OBVIOUSKY HAVING SIMILAR CLIMATES AT THE MOMENT.

AM NOW GOING OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD BUT YOU WILL HAVE READ ALL MY STUFF ANYWAY SO NO NEED TO READ IT AGAIN. FRIDAY CLUB AT THE CAFE TOMORROW AND I AM ALSO ON THE PROWL FOR DONATIONS OF RAFFLE PRIZES FOR THE CONCERT IN OCTOBER. YOU NEVER KNOW BUT IF YOU DO NOT ASK THEN YOU DO NOT GET AND I AM BRAZEN ENOUGH TO ASK, LOL. I ALREADY HAVE ONE IN THE BAG PLUS A PART SPONSORSHIP OF GOODIES FOR THE INTERVAL SO I AM WELL ON THE WAY.

SEE YOU TOMORROW FOR TRUE OR FALSE SHERRY. HAVE A SUPER EVENING AHEAD.

GOODNIGHT AND SWEET DREAMS.

I AGREE WITH ALL 3 OF YOU CUTTING DOWN AND EATING HEALTHIER FOODS WILL BE EASIER..........MARY BURNS CALORIES EVERY DAY BECAUSE SHE WORKS......... AND AS LONG AS YOU CAN STAY BUSY AND EATING RIGHT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOSE ALSO..... AS FOR TRISH I THINK SHE WILL HAVE PROBLEMS JUST EATING BETTER........BUT AS LONG AS SHE DOES WHAT SHE CAN SHE WILL LOSE BUT JUST A LITTLE SLOWER... IT'S A GREAT IDEA FOR ALL OF YOU.......... STAYING HEALTHY AT OUR AGE COMES WITH EXERCISE OF SOME KIND AND EATING THE RIGHT FOODS.

OUR WEATHER IS AT 24C.......... BUT I'M VACUUMING AND WASHING FLOORS SO I'M POURING SWEAT........ OKAY MAC TALK LATER.

3. BILL GATES.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon NO PROBLEMS SHERRY.

I THINK THE PARASOL IS AN ENGLISH THING. IT WAS THE FASHION THAT GENTEEL LADIES OF VICTORIAN WEALTH THROUGH TO THE 30's AND 40's WOULD CARRY A PARASOL ON THEIR TRAVELS AS THEY DID NOT WANT THEIR SKIN TO CHANGE COLOUR. THERE WERE SPECIALIST DESIGNERS AND IT WAS A MARK OF HOW RICH YOU WERE AS TO THE DESIGN ON THE PARASOL. AT FIRST PARASOL DESIGNS WERE HAND PAINTED BUT PRINTING WAS FOUND TO BE A LOT EASIER AND CHEAPER FOR THE MANUFACTURER SO THAT TOOK OVER. THESE DAYS THEY ARE NOT USED AS MUCH ALTHOUGH MORE SO THE ELDERLY TEND TO USE THEM STILL. JUST SOME RANDOM USELESS FACTS FROM THAT NERDY BRAIN OF MINE, LOL.

HAD A GOOD DAY TODAY. WE WERE ABLE TO CATCH UP WITH MY ELDEST SON AS IT WAS HIS BIRTHDAY LAST MONDAY AND FATHERS DAY LAST SUNDAY. I GPOT A SMALL AMAZON VOUCHER FROM TRISH AND A NEW FISHING ROD FROM MY ELDEST. NEVER DO GET ANYTHING FROM THE MIDDLE ONE. WENT OUT FOR LUNCH AS WELL BUT WE AREE GOING ON A NEW FOOD REGIME AS OF SATURDAY SO NO MORE TREATS FOR A WHILE.ALL THREE OF US ARE DOING IT SO WE WILL BE ABLE TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER. MARY AND TRISH WILL BE EATING THE SAME BUT I WILL BE EATING A BIT DIFFERFENT AS SOME OF THE STUFF THEY EAT WOULD NEVER ENTER MY MOUTH, LOL. (CHILLIES FOR ONE). WE DECIDED BECCAUSE WE HAVE ALL PUT ON A FEW POUNDS SIMCE LAST CHRISTMAS AND WE WANT TO GET THESE OFF. IT WILL BE HARD SIMPLY BECAUSE NONE OF US IS REALLY ABLE TO EXERCISE ALTHOUGH I DO TRY AS BEST I CAN TO STAY ACTIVE. ALSO, I WILLHAVE A HEAD START AS NEXT WEEK, WESTHER PERMITTING, I WILL BE REPAINTING THE FENCES AND THE SHED, AND THERE IS A LOT OF WOOD TO PAINT, LOL.

WE GOT AWAY WITH IT WEATHER WISE BUT IN THE SOUTH EAST OF ENGLAND, INCLUDING LONDON, 1000 LIGHTING STRIKES PER HOUR WERE RECORDED AND PARTS GOT A MONTH OF RAIN IN LESS THAN 6 HOURS. NEEDLESS TO SAY THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF FLASH FLOODING AND HOUSES HAVE SUFFERED AS A RESULT. UP HERE, AT 1.30 THIS AFTERNOON THE TEMPERATURE ON OUR FRONT PATIO WAS 27°C. THAT DECREASED A COUPLE OF DEGREES AS WE WENT INTO TOWN BUT THEN, BY 3PM THE TEMPERATRUE HAD FALLEN TO AROUND 19°C. AT LEAST IT HAS STAY DRY THOUGH, AND THAT IS THE MAIN THING.

THAT'S IT SHERRY. WILL REPEAT ON THE CHAT THREAD LATER BUT AM CLOSELY FOLLOWING THE NEWS RIGHT NOW. I MAY BE UP MOST OF THE NIGHT AS THE RESULTS OF THE REFERENDUM COME IN.

CATCH YOU LATER.

THURSDAYS TRIVIA....


1. On December 4, 1941, the US Secretary of the Navy, Frank Knox, declared: "Whatever happens, the US Navy is not going to be caught napping." A VERY short while later, three days to be precise, a large naval contingent was caught doing that very thing by a Japanese attack force at which location?

Pensacola
Fort Worth
Guantanamo Bay
Pearl Harbor



2. In 1964 this actor was turned down for the lead in a movie because it was deemed he didn't 'have that presidential look'. After a while, it became apparent that the American public disagreed, because he was elected the 40th President of the United States. Who was he?

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Ronald Reagan
Martin Sheen



3. Even those who were intimately involved in the computer revolution could not make predictions that seemed accurate for much of a while. Which software magnate is alleged to have declared, in 1981, that "640k ought to be enough for anybody"?

Mark Zuckerberg
Steve Wozniak
Bill Gates
Stephen Hawking

GOOD LUCK MAC......... MINE IS EASY ALSO..

MAC'S QUIZ............

1................ J.K. ROWLING.

2............... L. FRANK BAUM.

3................... J.R.R TOLKIEN.

OKAY I KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT NOW,. WE JUST CALL THEM AN UMBRELLA FOR THE OUTDOOR TABLE........ THEY USUALLY TAKE A SMALL PIECE OF CONCRETE THAT SORT OF FITS INTO THE HOLE GOING INTO THE GROUND.......

TODAY MY QUIZ CONCERNS AUTHORS OF FANTASY NOVELS. IDENTIFY THE AUTHOR FROM THE CLUES.

1. My name is Hermione Granger. My parents are dentists, but I'm a witch. I don't like to brag, but I'm the best in my year! The wizarding world is more dangerous than I expected, though, and I've spent a lot of valuable study time fighting evil with my two best friends. Which writer shared our exploits with the non-magic world?

Peter S. Beagle
C.S. Lewis
J.K. Rowling
Stephenie Meyer

2. My name is Dorothy Gale, and I come from a gray, gray farm in the state of Kansas. Everything changed for me when I was suddenly swept away to a magical kingdom, a land of wonder and danger and miraculous friends. What writer somehow found the words to describe my indescribable adventures?
J. K. Rowling
L. Frank Baum
C. S. Lewis
Patricia Wrede

3. I was born Sméagol, and I had a happy, peaceful life. Then my cousin found my precious and I had to kill him to make him give it to me. I gave up everything to protect my precious, even my name, even my people and my habits of speech. We had to be tricksy -- the nasty hobbitses called us Gollum and stole it from us! Who wrote about the precious, but took the side of the hobbitses?
Anne McCaffrey
C.S. Lewis
J.R.R. Tolkien
Terry Goodkind

A PRETTY EASY ONE SO BEST OF LUCK.

JUST TO ANSWER YOUR QUERY; A NORMAL PARASOL IS AN UMBRELLA USED FOR SHADING YOU FROM THE SUN. THE GARDEN ONE IS MUCH BIGGER, OF COURSE, AND GOES THROUGH A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GARDEN TABLE SO THAT IT SHADES ALL THOSE SEATED. IT NEEDS A SOLID BASE IN ORDER TO STAY UPRIGHT BECAUSE IT IS QUITE A HIGH UMBRELLA AND QUITE A LARGE ONE, AS YOU CAN IMAGINE. I AM SURE YOU HAVE THE SAME BUT OBVIOUSLY YOU CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE.

1. PILTDOWN MAN.

2. CHARLES II.

3. EMILE ZOLA.

LOVED THIS ONE AS ALL THESE ARE SO WELL KNOWN BUT I HAD NOT THOUGHT ABOUT THEM FOR A LONG TIME.

MY QUIZ IS ALSO PRETTY EASY SHERRY.

1. We sang our songs for mortal ears
We had a bad agenda
Get some wax to plug your lugs
If minds you would defend-a!

Who are we?

Gorgons.
Sirens.
Vegetable lambs of Tartary.
Harpies.

2. I hang around in graveyards
I like to eat the dead
Toes and feet and fingers
Then I eat the heads.

Who am I?

A vampire.
A zombie.
A ghoul.
A mummy.

3. In lonely spots you hear of me
Shy am I and wild
You've surely read a lot of me
By which name am I styled?

Yeti.
Bigfoot.
Sasquatch.
All three.

BEST OF LUCK.

WOW, THAT MUST HAVE BEEN A REAL STORM FOR YOU TO HAVE LOST THE SATELLITE LIKE THAT. HOPEFULLY THAT IS OVER NOW AND THE WEATHER IS IMPROVING. PARTS OF THE BRITISH ISLES ARE DUE TO GET THUNDER AND LOCALISED FLOODING, ALTHOUGH NOTHING SERIOUS, AS OF TOMPORROW. THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT OURS IS NOT DRIVEN BY THE WIND BUT IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT WE HAVE NO WIND AND THAT IT WILL BE SO HOT AND HUMID.

NOW YOU HAVE ALL OF THE PLANTING DONE I HOPE YOU WILL POST SOME PICTURES. PLEASE LEET ME KNOW AS SOON AS YOU DO. I LOVE TO SEE WHAT YOU HAVE CREATED.

IT IS 12 MONTHS TO THE DAY SINCE MUM PASSED AWAY SO NO HOUSEWORK GOT DONE. INSTEAD WE WENT TO A PLACE THAT MUM LIKED GOING TO AND PAIID OUR RESPECTS THAT WAY. WILL EXPLAIN IN FULL ON THE CHAT THREAD.

WE DO HAVE THE GARDEN FURNITURE SO NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THAT. MARY HAS JUST BOUGHT A NEW PARASOL AS WELL AS THIS CONCRETE BASE FRO IT WHCIH IS GOING TO BE REAL FUN GETTING INTO PLACE AS IT IS SOLID AND EXTREMELY HEAVY. WE HAVE A TROLLEY TO GET IT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE GARDEN BUT THEN WE WILL HAVE TO TRY AND MOVE IT INTO POSITION BY HAND. I MAY JUST LAET THE GARDENER HAVE A GO AT IT AS HE HAS A LOT MORE STRENGTH THAT ANY OF US.

OK SHERRY, OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD NOW. SPEAK LATER ON.

WEDNESDAYS TRIVIA....


1. The best lies to tell in the scientific world are ones that perfectly fit with the prevailing view of the time. So it was with the "discovery" in southern England in 1908, of human remains that supposedly provided the missing link between apes and humans. What was the name given to the fraudulent remains?

Neanderthal Man
Lucy
Peking Man
Piltdown Man



2. Titus Oates had a long history of spinning yarns. It even landed him a brief spell in prison on one occasion. However, in 1678, he fabricated a series of stories that had far-reaching consequences, including the execution of more than twenty men, all incorrectly charged with being part of a "Popish Plot" to assassinate which recently re-instated English monarch?

James II
Henry VIII
Victoria
Charles II



3. Alfred Dreyfus was convicted in 1894 of betraying France by giving military secrets to Germany. But his conviction was all based on lies. The conspiracy was uncovered after re-examination of the case was prompted by the famous letter "J'accuse", written by which famous French author?

Victor Hugo
Jules Verne
Honore Balzac
Emile Zola

SHERRY, YOU KNOW FINE YOU WOULD BE REALLY WELCOME. JUST THE SORT OF THING I NEEDED TO BRIGHTEN UP THE EVENING. WATCHED THE DEBATE AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT NOTHING THAT WAS SAID HAS CAUSED ME TO CHANGE MY MIND BUT IT WAS HEADY STUFF SO TO READ YOUR REPLY HAS BROUGHT A LITTLE LIGHT RELIEF.

AS FOR THE BBQ; FOR ONCE I ACTUALLY LEFT FOOD. TRISH BOUGHT THESE SAUSAGES WHCIH WERE MEANT TO BE DELUXE HOT DOG SAUSAGES AND MUCH LOWER IN FAT ETC, THAN NORMAL SAUSAGES. THE GIRLS MAY HAVE LIKED THEM, BUT AFTER TASTING MINE WENT INTO THE BIN AS ALL I COULD TASTE WAS THIS ARTIFICIAL SMOKE FLAVOUR AND I DON'T LIKE IT. THE REST OF THE FOOD WAS GOOD, THOUGH, AND BESIDES, THE WEATHER FORECAST IS NOT GREAT AGAIN. WE HAVE HAD OUR COUPLE OF RELATIVELY DRY DAYS SO WE ARE NOW BACK TO LOOKING TO GET RAIN AND POSSIBLY SOME THUNDER STORMS. IT WAS AS WELL THAT THE GARDENER CAME TODAY AS I DO NOT THINK THE GRASS WOULD HAVE BEEN DRY ENOUGH TO CUT OTHERWISE.

TRISH IS NOW ENJOYING HER NEW BED. I JAVE TO SAY I TRIED IT AND ALTHOUGH IT IS COMFORTABLE IT IS A LITTLE SOFT FOR MY LIKING AND ALSO HAS A MEMORY FOAM TOP MATRESS OVER THE COILS. A MEMORY FOAM MATRESS IS OF NO USE TO ME AS I MOVE AROUND IN MY SLEEP TOO MUCH TO CREATE A 'MEMORY' SO THE ADDED EXPENSE WOULD SIMPLY BE A WASTE. I SUDDER FROM BLOOD POOLING QUITE QUICKLY SO HAVE TO KEEP TOSSING AND TURNING JUST TO REMAIN COMFORTABLE. IT DOES NOT MAKE FOR A RESTFUL NIGHT ALTHOUGH LATELY I HAVE BEEN FEELING A LOT MORE REFRESHED IN THE MORNINGS.

THAT IS IT REALLY. MORE HOUSEWORK ON THE AGENDA FOR TOMORROW AND I WIL SEE HOW MUCH I CAN DO BEFORE I HAVE TO CALL TIME ON IT. LATER ON I WANT TO HOST A GARDEN PARTY FOR SOME OF MY FRIENDS BUT A LOT OF SORTING OUT HAS TO BE DONE BEFORE I WILL BE READY TO DO THAT.

WE NOW HAVE A DEFINITE DATE FOR ME TO GO BACK ON STAGE AND DO A CONCERT. I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO IT AS I MISS BEING UP THERE AND ENTERTAINING PEOPLE. IT IS NOW A CASE OF ME REHEARSING LIKE MAD AND I WILL BE TAKING MY GUITAR ON CAMP IN JULY AS THAT WILL BE AN IDEAL TIME FOR ME TO REALLY GET DOWN TO WRITING OUT THE MUSICAL ARRAGEMENTS ESPECIALLY FOR MY MINISTER WHO WILL BE ACCOMPANYING ME ON THE PIANO WHEN I PLAY THE RECORDER FOR THE JIGS AND REELS. THERE IS A LOT OF WORK TO BE DONE NOW TO GET THE THING READY AND ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT UNTIL OCTOBER, IT REALLY DOESN'T LEAVE TOO MUCH TIME WITH PEOPLE ON HOLIDAYS AND THEN HAVING TO TEACH SOMEONE THE SONGS. BRING IT ON. THE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE CHURCH AS WE STILL NEED TO RAISE A LOAD OF CASH TOWARDS THE FORTHCOMING REFURBISHMENT.

THAT IS IT FROM ME THIS EVENING. IT I NOW NEARLY 1030PM SO I AM OUT OF HERE.

HAVE A SUPER EVENING AND I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT SHERRY. SWEET DREAMS.

TUESDAYS TRIVIA....


1. She was a Christmas Day baby, but left her native shores as a young girl to stow away on a ship to a new life in the land of the free. Stirred by the words of one of the nation's greatest orators, she signed up to serve in the War Between the States - as a man. After the war she settled in Illinois and lived quietly as a man for 40 years before being admitted to a care home. It was only when she became mentally infirm and was admitted to a hospital that the truth was discovered. Which maiden was buried with full military honours and lies beneath a memorial erected by the people of a grateful town?


Annie McGaughey
Annie Pimperton
Mary Maher
Jennie Hodgers



2. Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, is undoubtedly one of history's most beloved heroines. She has been the subject of plays by Schiller and Shaw, operas by Verdi and Tchaikovsky, cantatas by Rossini and Honneger, a satirical poem by Voltaire, and paintings by Ingres and Rossetti, among many others. Among the more unlikely artists to have fallen under her spell was this American satirical author, whose works generally exhibit a rather atheistic tone.

Washington Irving
William Faulkner
Theodore Dreiser
Mark Twain



3. Emily Davison was an impassioned and vigorous campaigner for the right of women's suffrage in the United Kingdom in the early twentieth century. So committed to this cause was she that, in the words of fellow campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst, she believed that only the loss of life "would put an end to the intolerable torture of women". Which of the following of her campaigning acts led to her premature death, unmarried at the age of 40?


Bombing the home of David Lloyd George
A hunger strike whilst in Strangeways prison
Running in front of the king's horse during the Epsom Derby
Leaping from the upper gallery in Holloway prison

GOOD LUCK MAC........... A BIT OF HISTORY WHICH I KNOW YOU WILL FIND EASY,

I THINK IF YOU KEEP ACTIVE IT HELPS THE BODY AND KEEPS IT HEALTHIER........ TAKING BREAKS WHEN YOU NEED THEM.......... GOING TO DISNEYLAND IS A BIG THING........ SO YOU KNOW THE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO TO KEEP YOUR HEALTH IN GOOD SHAPE.

WHEN WE LIVED IN THE DUPLEX I HAD A POT GARDEN ON MY SMALL BELCONY...... NOW HAVING THIS WHOLE YARD I'M TRYING TO FIX IT UP AND EACH YEAR I WANT TO BUY A SHRUB OR TREE........ I WANT THEM ALL TO BE FRUIT TREES OR SHRUBS....... I DON'T WANT ANYTHING THAT GROWS TOO HIGH,,....... I'VE DONE LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS THIS YEAR WITH THE FRONT......... I ALREADY HAD THE PORCH FILLED WITH PETUNIA'S......... ALONG WITH THE ROCK GARDEN AND THE PATH DOWN MY FRONT SIDEWALK......... WITH PLANTS IN FRONT OF THE PORCH...... A LOT....... BUT LIKE I SAID I HAVE STARTED TO FILL THE LITTLE FRONT DECK WITH NICE POT STANDS FILLED WITH PETUNIA'S....

IDENTIFY THE STAR FROM THE CLUES.

1. "Farewell, my lovely," I overheard a gentleman say to a woman as I moved toward the centre of the room. I knew this was an important moment - if only I could remember the name of the chess-playing detective who had solved mysteries in such films as 'The Big Sleep' and 'The Long Goodbye'. Can you help me remember?

Sherlock Holmes
Sam Spade
Phillip Marlowe
Perry Mason

2. All these noir celebrities are making me dizzy! Surely, I know that profile! Though many of his films are not considered strictly 'noir', his movie 'Vertigo' is generally acknowledged as representing the sub-genre. Who was this prolific and clever director?

John Huston
Alfred Hitchcock
Stanley Kubrick
Frank Capra

3. I wandered into the next room, where, on the mantelpiece, I spotted a "black figure of a bird"; I know that Joel Cairo offered Sam Spade a $5,000 fee to find it; but who played Cairo in the quintessential film noir, 'The Maltese Falcon'?

Lee Patrick
Humphrey Bogart
Sydney Greenstreet
Peter Lorre

A PRETTY EASY ONE SHERRY. EVEN I GOT THESE CORRECT, LOL. BEST OFLUCK.

SEE YOU TOMORROW SHERRY. SWEET DREAMS.

MONDAYS TRIVIA.........


1. Welcome to the gardens of Hever Castle. As we are in the "Garden of England", what better place is there to start the sightseeing?

No-one is sure if Anne Boleyn was born here or at Bicking Hall in Norfolk, but King Henry VIII certainly used to visit her here. Surely they didn't let the portcullises down, when he showed up! In which county of England can you find Hever Castle?

Essex
Kent
Cornwall
Yorkshire



2. Welcome to London. We are in the Banqueting House, Whitehall. It was built quite some time after the Tudors (1619-22) but as there is not much else left of Whitehall Palace (most of it having burnt down in 1698) we don't need to be that pedantic.

And Whitehall, with more than 1500 rooms, was the palace where Henry VIII made love and married his second Queen, Anne Boleyn, where they may have watched some tennis or even a cockfight in venues installed at Henry's wish.

But what kind of "entertainment" is associated with the 21st century Whitehall?

United Kingdom Government
Disneyland London
London Zoo
Oh no, not that - at least not official



3. Welcome to this magnificent building, that no London tourist should miss. It is where Queen Anne Boleyn met her destiny: just like the uncles of her husband, Henry VIII, who were last seen alive here.

Where are we now?

Pentonville
Holloway
Tower of London
Belmarsh

MINE IS A REAL EASY ALSO.......... GOOD LUCK MAC....

MAC'S QUIZ...

1.................... RIDERS ON THE STORM.

2.................... SOMETHING.

3.................... NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN,,

I LOVE VERY ONE OF THESE SONGS........... GREAT MUSIC BACK IN THE DAY..

AS FOR LIZ BEING ABLE TO GET PREGANT............ I THINK TRISH HAS IT RIGHT........ I'M SURE THEY FELT AT THE TIME LIZ WAS WORKING FOR THE FBI....... AND FINDING TIME FOR MATERITY LEAVE AND SUCH THEY THOUGHT ADOPTING WOULD BE EASIER....... OR WHEN THE FOUND OUT LIZ COULDN'T CONCEIVE.......... AND WENT TO THE FERITILITY DOCTOR I THOUGHT HE WAS HELPING THEM AND IT WAS A 30-50% THAT SHE COULD........... AND THAT'S WHY THEY WERE SO HAPPY WHEN LIZ FOUND OUT SHE WAS PREGNANT............. THAT'S ALL I GOT FOR YOU ON THIS SUBJECT..... LOL..

AS FOR DOUG'S LAWYER.......... HE TOLD THE SECTRETARY THAT THEY CAN FORGOT THE WHOLE THING AND THAT'S WHEN HE STARTED TO BACK PEDDLE........ IT WON'T BE LONG......... SO HIS LAWYER ISN'T BACK IN THEOFFICE UNTIL JULY LONG WEEKEND.......... IF DOUG DOES GET OUT AND THE APPEAL COMES THROUGH LATER THEN THE LAWYER CAN STILL GET ANOTHER HEARING AND HOPE DOUG GETS FOUND NOT GUILTY.. WE WILL SEE WHAT WE CAN OR WILL DO ONCE DOUG IS HOME.

A VERY WASY QUIZ TO START THE WEEK POFF FOR YOU.

IDENTIFY THE SONG FROM THE EOND LIONE OF THE LYRICS.

1. In this 1971 song the title is repeated twice. "Into this house we're born; Into this world we're thrown" are the next lines to which song?

Riders On the Storm
The Doors of Perception
Light My Fire
Billion Dollar Babies

2. No classic rock quiz would be complete without an appearance from the Fab Four. This second line comes from which 1969 song? "Attracts me like no other lover".

Something
The Way She Moves
She
Maggie Mae

3. Clocking in at over 7 1/2 minutes, this song didn't get the airplay it deserved on its initial release. "Never reaching the end; Letters I've written, never meaning to send" are the second lines to what 1967 song?

Songs I'm Beginning
Books
Nights in White Satin
Letters I've Been Reading

NOW I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU, OR AT LEAST CLARIFICATION OF AN ANSWER. I WAS DRIFTING ALONG WITH MY THOUGHTS EARLIER AND FOR SOME BIZARRE REASON I CAME ACROSS A QUESTION CONCRNING THE BLACKLIST. I ASKED TRISH HOW LIZ WAS ABLE TO HAVE TOM'S BABY AS I THOUGHT, CASTING MY MIND BACK TO THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE FORST SERIES, SHE WAS INFERTILE WHICH WAS THE REASON THEY WERE CONSIDERING ADOPTION. TRISH SAYS NO TO THIS. SHE SAYS THAAT ALTHOUGH LIZ WAS HAVING FERTILITY PROBLEMS IT WAS NOT IMPOSSIBLE FOR HER TO CONCEIVE AND THE REASON THEY WERE LOOKING AT ADOPTION WAS THAT THERE WERE SO MANY IN THE WORLD DESERVING OF A GOOD FAMILY HOME AND THAT LIZ COULD GET PREGNANT AT ANY TIME. MY MNMEMORY BEING WHAT IT IS I AM NOW NOT SURE. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN REMEMBER AND PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY.

AS FOR THE LAWYER AND HIS TARDY WAYS; DOUG MAY BE RIGHT SEEING A HE IS HOME NEXT MONTH. HOWEVERE, THE THING IS THAT IF HE CAN CLEAR HIS NAME HE WILL GET HIS LICENSE BACK WHEREAS IF HE JUST DOES HIS TIME HE WILL STILL HAVE A DRIVING BAN AND WILL NOT BE AS USEFUL TO HIS BOSS. IT MAY BE LATE IN THE DAY BIT IF THE LAWYER CAN BE PERSUADED TO GET OFF HIS BACKSIDE AND DO THE JOB E IS PAID TO DO THEN EVEN IF DOUG IS HOME, HIS NNAME WILL HAVE BEEN CLEARED AND HE WILL BE ABLE TO DRIVE. ALSO, THERE IS THEN THE SUBJECT OF COMPENSATION FOR LOSS OF EARNINGS EETC. AND I AM SURE NO SENSIBLE LAWYER WILL WANT TO TURN DOWN A CHUNK OF THAT. SO THINK ABOUT IT AND WAY UP THE OPTIONS AND TELL THE LAWYER STRAIGHT THAT YOU ARE PREPARED TO GO ELSEWHERE IF NECESSARY AND THAT HE WILL MIS SOUT IF HE DOES NOT DO THE JOB HE IS BEIONG RETAINED TO DO. ALSO, YOU CAN TELL HIM THAT YOU WILL ALSO BE WRITING A LETTER OF COMPLAINT AGAINST HIM TO WHATEVER IS YOUR EQUIVALENT OF OUR LAW SOCIETY AND THEY HAVE THE POWER TO LEVY A HEFTY FINE RIGHT UP TO STRIKING THE LAWYER OFF THE REGISTER SO THAT HE IS NO LONGER ABLE TO PRACTICE. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON SHEERRY AS I THINK IN THE LONGERE TERM IT WOULD BE TO BOTH DOUG'S AND YOUR ADVANTAGE. JUST MY OPINION, AND OF COURSE IT IS UP TO YOU AND DOUG IN THE END.

HOPE YOUR DAY IS GOING WELL. CHAT LATER.

WELL DOUG HAS TOLD THE SECRETARY THAT'S HE MIGHT AS WELL CANCEL THE APPEAL SINCE HE WILL BE OUT IN JULY...... DOUG HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO TALK TO THE LAWYER IT'S ALWAYS HIS SECRETARY........ WHICH IS FINE BUT NOT EVERY TIME HE CALLS FOR 3 MONTHS HE HASN'T TALKED DIRECTLY TO THE LAWYER...... THE THING IS EVERY TIME DOUG HAS CALLED HE KEEPS GETTING A STORY........ LIKE WAITING TO SEND A LAWYER UP THERE SO DOUG CAN SIGN THE PAPERS.......... HE WAS TOLD THE GUY WOULD BE THERE FOR 2 MONTHS... THEN HE FINALLY SHOWED UP..... NOW HIS LAWYER IS IN THE HOSPITAL.......... SINCE THEN IT'S WAITING AND NOT GETTING A STRAIGHT ANSWER,

HI SHERRY. YES, THE BCK HAS TAKEN A POUNDING AND I CANNOT DO ANYTHING RIGHT NOW. I AM TRYING TO KEEP MOVING, AS YOU SAY, BUT I WILL SURE BE GLAD WHEN IT FINALLY DOES LOOSEN UP. I AM DISAPPOINTED FOR DOUG. DON'T THESE LAWYERS WISH TO EARN THEIR MONEY? I WOULD GIVE THE FIRM AN ULTIMATUM. GET MOVING OR FORGET IT, PERIOD! IF THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO DO ANYTHING THEN TELL THEM YOU WILL FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL. I KNOW JUSTICE WORKS SLOWLY BUT THIS IS PLAIN RIDICULOUS. THEY WILL SOON HURRY UP WHEN THE SUBJECT OF POSSIBLE COMPENSATION COMES AROUND AS THEY WOULD LOSE OUT BIG TIME.

IT IS SUNDAY AND I SO NOT USUALLY POST ON A SUNDAY BUT MY BACK HAS GOT ME OUT OF BED EARLY AND I WILL PROBABLY DOZE IN THE CHAIR AT SOME POINT AS IT IS MORE COMFORTABLE. JUST PART OF LIFE, I GUESS. I HAVE TO GO DOWN SOON ANYWAY FOR A SHORT WHILE AS I HAVE TO FILL THE SPONGE WITH JAM AND CREAM READY FOR CHURCH.

HOPE YOUR DAY GOES WELL SHERRY AND THAT YOU CAN TAKE A DAY OFF FROM THE GARDEN AND RELAX. I AM STILL WAITING TO GET OUT IN MINE AS SINCE I GOT BACK FROM CAMP THE WEATHER HAS NOT BEEN KIND AND THE MARE'S TAIL IS LOVING IT.

TAKE IT EASY AND I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

HE GETS OUT OF THE HOSPITAL LONG WEEKEND IN JUNE........ AND BY THEN WHO KNOWS......... DOUG IS THINKING HE WILL PROBABLY DO HIS TIME AND GET OUT BEFORE ANYTHING HAPPENS........... THE LAWYER WILL RUSH IT CAUSE DOUG TOLD HIS SECRETARY THEY MIGHT AS WELL FORGET THE APPEAL......... SHE WAS BACK TRACKING NO NO DON'T SAY THAT IT WILL BE DONE.......... SHE'S BEEN TELLING US THAT FOR OVER A MONTH......... IT'S THE MONEY THEY DON'T WANT TO LOSE............. PERIOD!!!

I DID WONDER BUT IT WAS MEN IN BLACK 3 THAT CAME OUT IN 2012, THE FIRST ONE BEING IN 1997 WOULD YOU BELIEVE? (JUST LOOKED IT UP ON IMDB). CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IT WAS THAT LONG AGO.

ANYWAY, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YOU END THE WEEK ON A HIGH.

NOW I AM OFF TO BED. I DID MYSELF AN INJURY YESTERDAY WHEN CLEANING OUT THE FREEZER AND WOKE UP THIS MORNING IN AGONY WITH A SIDE STRAIN. IT TOOK ME ALL OF MY TIME TO GET OUT OF THE BED AND AS FOR PUTTING MY SOCKS ON..... IT FEELS A BIT LOOSER AT THE MOMENT BUT THEN I HAVE BEEN OUT AND ABOUT. WE WILL SEE HOW IT IS TOMORROW MORNING. HOW ARE OYU PROGRESSING? ALSO, HAVE YOU HEARD ANYTHING MORE ABOUT DOUG'S APPEAL?

HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR PIZZZA. WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT SHERRY. SWEET DREAMS.

1. COAT, SHOES AND WOOLLY HAT.

2. SITTING ON A CHAIR.

3. VICTORIA TOWER GARDENS NEAR PARLIAMENT.

MINE IS ALSO A VERY EASY ONE SHERRY. ALL BASED AROUND EGGS FRECIPES.

1. "You can do this," Plodd says, handing me an egg. "This is a classic egg dish. I learned how to create it perfectly when I was in France. In Metz, to be exact. It is essentially an egg custard with bacon, in a pastry shell, and real men do eat it!" What dish is Plodd teaching me how to create?

quiche lorraine
stratta
frittata
deviled eggs

2. The kitchen is hot, with the rice, smoked haddock and hard-boiled eggs cooling, and Caparica hands me a bowl of sliced onions. "Fry these," he says, "until they are soft. Then add the spices, while I flake the fish. This is an old family recipe, but the basic dish is from India. Do you know what it's called?"

egg in the basket
bubble and squeak
kedgeree
frittata

3. I'm in the kitchen with Puddles_08, and she is showing me how to make a truly impressive breakfast dish. "Timing is critical when you are poaching the eggs," she says, handing me two split English muffins. "Pop those in the toaster while I stir the Hollandaise sauce and check on the ham. Everything is almost ready, but do you remember the name of this dish?"

Eggs Provencal
Eggs Oscar
Eggs Benedict
Eggs Beauregard

BEST OF LUCK.

SOME OF RED'S THINGS ABOUT HOW HE KNOWS LIZ IS COMING OUT...... BUT THEIR STILL NOT TELLING US WHAT EXACTLY THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN RED AND LIZ...... THINK ABOUT IT RED HIRE TOM LONG AGO AND TOLD HIM TO STAY AWAY FROM LIZ...... WHICH HE DID NOT........ SO I THINK IT WAS TOM THAT TOLD LIZ THEY NEED TO GET AWAY AND MAKE RED THINK SHE IS DEAD WOULD BE THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP HIM AWAY FROM HER............. I ALSO THINK LIZZY'S DAUGHTER IS GOING TO HAVE A BIG ROLE IN THE STORY STARTING OUT THIS YOUNG........... YOUR RIGHT THE WAIT IS NOW ON.....

I'M JUST GETTING READY TOO COOK SUPPER............. SO I'M OUT OF HERE TOO......... ENJOY A RELAXING EVENING MAC. emoticon

SHERRY, I ONLY GOT THERE ON GUESSES TODAY BY A PROCESS OF ELIMINATION SO I WAS LUCKY. Q3 IS CORRECT AND I CAN RECOMMEND THAT IF YOU GET A CHANCE DO WATCH ELEPHANT MAN. HURT REALLY SHOWS HIS ACTING SKILLS HERE AND IT IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY. MIND YOU, ANYTHING JOHN HURT DOES IS GOOD AS HE IS A FABULOUS ACTOR. MAKES YOU FEEL OLD WHEN YOU SUDDENLY REMEMBER THAT YOU WATCHED THE LIKES OF MCLEOD AND THE BEVERLEY HILLBILLIES. HAVE YOU SEEN THE MOVIE? IT IS REALLY FUNNY AND THE CAST DID A REALLY SUPER JOB OF RECREATING THE CHARACTERS.

SO emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YOUR FIRST WIN OF THE WEEK. HOPE YOU FEEL A BIT BETTER NOW. YOUR TWO OTHER QUIZZES WERE ON THE DIFFICULY SIDE AND, AS I SAID YTO YOU, YESTERDAY I DID NOT GET ONE CORRECT SO YOU BEAT ME THERE.

BETWEEN US I THINK WE HAVE THE NEW SERIES OF THE BLACKLIST SEWN UP, LOL. INTERESTING YOU THINK THAT RED WILL EVENTUALLY TAKE TOM OUT. WE STILL REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT HIS TRUE RELATIONSHIP WITH LIZ IS AND I AM WONDERING IF WE WILL EVER FIND OUT. AS YOU SAY, WE WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.

AM JUST ABOUT TO GO OVER TO THE CHAT THREAD AND THEN THAT IS ME FOR ANOTHER DAY.

HAVE A SUPER EVENING SHERRY. SEE YOU TOMORROW.

MAC'S QUIZ.......

1.............. DENNIS WEAVER..... MCCLOUD.

2............... BUDDY EBSEN...... THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES.

3........... JOHN HURT....... THIS ONE IS A QUESS.


NOW AS FOR THE BLACKLIST............. YOU DIDN'T MENTION SEEING THE PART WHERE LIZZY DIES........ SO I FIGURE YOU HADN'T SEE IT YET..... I'M SHOCKED THAT KATE HID ALL THIS STUFF FROM RED......... I DO THINK HE WILL KEEP HER ON FOR AWHILE..... UNTIL THE RIGHT TIME HE DECIDES TO KILL HER...... WHICH I'M SURE HE WILL DO..... NOBODY DOES THAT KIND OF STUFF TO RED....... ESPECIALLY ONE OF HIS TRUSTED.

THE END OF THE SHOW WERE RED FINDS OUT THAT LIZ IS ALIVE.......... IMAGINE WHAT HE'S THINKING........ ALL THAT BACK STABBING........ AND HOW HARD HE TOOK HER BEING GONE.... THEN TOM TELLING HIM TO STAY AWAY FROM THEIR DAUGHTER IS SOMETHING RED WILL NOT FORGET...... TOM IS STILL UP TO HIS OLD TRICKS AND HAS LIZZY THINKING HE HAS CHANGED....... THAT WILL COME OUT SOONER OR LATER..... I THINK TOM IS STILL ALIVE.......... IT WILL BE RED THAT TAKES HIM OUT IN THE END............

I AGREE I THINK LIZ WILL GO BACK AND WORK FOR THE FBI...... AND YOUR RIGHT BOTH RED AND TOM WILL GO LOOKING FOR LIZ.......... PLUS I AGREE THEY WILL END UP BEING TOGETHER FOR THE SAKE OF GETTING HER BACK......... YES THE FBI HAS CROSSED THE LINE ON ALL THINGS..... I THINK TOM WILL WORK FOR HIS MOTHER......... NOT WANTING TOO BUT BECAUSE I THINK HE'S CROOKED AND LIKES HIS MONEY TOO MUCH........ LIZ RAN AWAY WITH HIM THINKING TOM IS DONE WITH EVERYTHING AND I'M SURE HE'S NOT DONE BEING A SPY AND KILLER.

SO THERE YOU GO THEY HAVE US AGAIN WAITING FOR THE NEXT SEASON......

1. BLACK OPAL.

2. BROKEN HILL.

3. JOHN MONASH.

HAVING SET YOU A COUPLE OF DOOZIES THE PAST COUPLE OF SAYS I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY AND GIVE OYU A RFESPITE WITH TODAY'S QUIZ. NAME THE ACTOR.

1. Which actor was chased by a big truck in a movie (1971) and then chased crooks around New York on a horse in a TV series (1970-1977)?

Dennis Quid.
Dennis Franz.
Dennis Farena.
Dennis Weaver.

2. Which actor nearly got to follow the yellow brick road but became Davy Crockett's side-kick. Then he was the head of a backwoods family in Beverly Hills, California that is. He ended up as a private detective and his name is _____ .

Edgar Buchanan.
Buddy Ebsen.
Walter Brennan.
Jack Elam.

3. Which actor's evidence helped to convict Sir Thomas Moore in "A Man For All Seasons" (1966) and was the first to have his guts ripped out by an "Alien" (1979)? He also had trouble with an Elephant, Big Brother, a Naked Civil Servant and Hellboy.

William Hurt.
Ian Holm.
John Heard.
John Hurt.

RE THE BLACLIST, IT IS AS I SAID. WE HAVE WATCHED TO THE END OF THE SERIES AND BOTH TRISH AND I GUESSED THAT LIZ WASN'T DEAD. WHAT WE DID NOT EXPECT WAS THAT TOM WOULD FIND OUT ABOUT HIS MOTHER FROM RED AND THAT KATE WOULD GO BEHIND RED'S BACK IN ORDER TO TRY AND GET LIZ AND TOM AWAY FROM HIM. ALSO, AS I SAID, TOM'S MUM RUNS A HIGHLY DUBIOUS BUT SUCCESSFUL SECURITY AGENCY WITH, IT SEEMS, CONTACTS ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE. BUT TO LEAVE THE SERIES ON A CLIFFHANGER LIKE LIZ BEING TOLD THAT HER KIDNAPPER IS ACTUALLY HER DAD.... WOW. WHAT IS RED GOING TO DO NEXT AND, AS I ASKED, DID THE KIDNAPPERS SIMPLY KNOCK TOM OUT OR DID THEY KILL HIM AS PER THEIR ORDERS? IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG WAIT UNTIL THE NEW SERIES STARTS. SO COME ON. NO STANDING ON THE FENCE. I RECKON THAT BE SUCCESSFUL, BUT AT A COST, AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT MAY BE. I THINK THAT TOM IS STILL ALIVE AND THAT HE WILL TRY AND GO AFTER THE KIDNAPPERS SINGLE HANDED WHILST RED WILL ATTEMPT TO DO THE SAME. ALONG THE WAY THEY WILL MEET UP AND SUBSEQUENTLY BDE SUCCESSFUL AT RESUING LIZ, BUT I DO THINK THER WILL BE A COST. RED WILL KEEP KATE ON AS SHE HAS BEEN SO USEFUL BUT ON A SHORT LEASH THE SECURITY AGENCY RUN BY TOM'S MUM WILL, I THINK COME INTO IT MORE AND MORE AS THE TASK FORCE IS USED FOR OTHER THAN JUST THE ROUTINE WORK THEY HAVE BEEN DOING. NOW THAT THEY HAVE CROSSED THE LINE AND IT IS KNOWN IN HIGH PLACES, I THINK THEIR JOB JUST MAY BE EXPANDED A LITTLE.. I THINK THAT LIZ MIGHT BE PERSUADED BACK TO THE TASK FORCE SO THAT THEY CAN KEEP RED SUPPLYING THEM WITH INFORMATION AND AT THE SAME TIME UTILISE TOM IN WET WORK OR UNDERCOVER OPS. I DO NOT THINK WE HAVE SEEN THE LAST OF THE GIRL WHO SAVED TOM'S LIFE WHEN SHE SHOT HIS WOULD BE ASSASSIN, (CAN'T REMEMBER HER NAME OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD). I THINK SHE MAY BECOME AN ALLY ALBEIT ON A PROFESSIONAL BASIS ONLY. NOW YOUR TURN.

AS FOR NCIS, I ALSO STOPPED WATCHING IT A WHILE BACK BIUT I AM KEPT FAIRLY UP TO DATE BECAUSE BOTH OF THE GIRLS STILL WATCH IT.

LOOK FORWARD TO CHATTING LATER ON.

THAT'S WHAT I MEANT WHEN I TOLD YOU TO WATCH IT.......... LIZZY DYING...... WAST'S THATY A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM....... RED IS IN A DAZE AND IS REALLY TAKING LIZZY'S DEAD HARD.............. BUT YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS SEASON BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WILL REALLY MAKE YOU MAD...... I THINK THE ACTORS LOVE THE FACT OF HOW THEY CHANGE THE SCRIPT AND KEEPS EVERYONE WONDERING......... IF LIZZY'S DEAD IS WHERE YOU ENDED OFF THEN LIKE I SAID THE SEASON THAT I JUST WATCHED IS THE ONE THAT TURNS EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN....

I USE TO WATCH NCIS ALL THE TIME............ I WATCHED THE ONE WITH THE BLACK GUY....... I THINK IT'S NCIS L,A...... AND I USE TO WATCH THE ONE YOUR TALKING ABOUT NOW........... OTHER SHOWS CAME ON AND I HAD TO GIVE ALL THE NCIS A BACK BURNER.

SHERRY, YOU GOT Q2 WRONG. THE ANSWER IS THAT A PERSON WHO SEES THEMSELVES WILL DIE NEXT. STILL, YOU DID A LOT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN TAKING THE QUIZ. THIS ONE WAS FROM FUN TRIVIA BTW.

OK, THE BLACKLIST. WHAT ARE THESE SCRIPT WRITERS DOING TO US? TRISH AND I WATCHED THE FINAL 2 EPISODES OF THE LAST SERIES TODAY AND ALL SORTS OF COMPLEX SITUATIONS HAVE EMERGED. FIRST THING IS NEITHER OF US BELIEVED THAT LIZ WAS DEAD AND THAT IT WAS A PUT UP JOB. HOWEVER, FOR TOM TO FIND OUT ABOUT HIS MOTHER WITHOUT HER KNOWING ABOUT HIM IS A COMPLKICATION AS SHE IS THE HEAD OF A POWERFUL SECURITY ORGANISATION WITH LINKS TO THE WHITE HOUSE. THEN THERE IS THIS BILLIONAIRE WHO EVERYONE WANTS TO KILL BUT HAS SAID HE IS LIZ'S FATHER. ALSO, IS TOM STILL ALIVE OR DID THE KIDNAPPERS KILL HIM? AS FOR RED; HE IS IN LIMBO LAND RIGHT NOW NOT REALLY KNOWING WHAT TO DO FOR THE BEST AND WITH ONE OF HIS MOST TRUSTED ALLIES GOING AGAINST HIM..... WHAT WILL HE DO WITH KATE, HIS FAITHFUL AIDE AND GO TO PERSON FOR CLEAN UP OPERATIONS AND THE LIKE? THE SPECIAL TASK FORCE HAS NOW REALLY CROSSED A LINE WITH WHAT THEY ARE PREPARED TO SANCTION AND WHO THEY AR PREPARD TO WORK WITH. JUST IN THIS ONE PARAGRAPH WE HAVE A COMPLETE NEW SERIES AND I RECKON THE ACTORS THEMSELVES MUST GET FRUSTRATED SINCE EVEN THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT UNTIL THEY GET THE SCRIPT WHEN THEY WALK ON SET. BEING ONE OF THE SCRIPT WRITERS MUST BE REALLY STRESSFUL AS THEY ARE SWORN TO SECRECY AND CANNOT EVEN TELL THEIR OWN FAMILIES WHAT IS GOING ON, AND THEY MUST BE UNDER CONSTANT PRESSURE TO REVEAL ALL. SO NOW WE WAIT TO SEE. IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG ONE BUT THEN IT IS THE MARK OF A GOOD SERIES WHEN IT LEAVES YOU WITH ALL SORTS OF THEORIES AND CONJECTURES SO THAT YOU KEEP HAVING TO GO BACK FOR MORE.

SPEAKING OF SERIES; WE HAVE JUST COME TO THE END OF THE CURRENT RUN ANOTHER LONG RUNNING ONE, NAMELY NCIS. THIS ONE HAS SEEN THE END OF ANTONY DENOSO AS HE HAS LEFT TO LOOK AFTER HIS AND ZEVA'S DAUGHTER AFTER TRENT CORD KILLED ZEVA WHEN HE BLEW UP THE FARMHOUSE SHE WAS IN. IT WAS REVEALED A LONG TIME AGO THAT HE WAS LEAVING BUT HE IS GOING TO BE HARD TO REPLACE AS HE HAS BEEN WITH IT FROM ITS INCEPTION.

ALL TRISH AND I HAVE LEFT NOW IS TO WATCH MADAM SECRETARY, WHCIH WE LIKE BECAUSE IT DEALS WITH REAL ISSUES IN ITS OWN WAY AND REFLECTS SOME OF THE DIFFICULT DECISIONS THAT HAVE TO BE MADE. IT ALSO FEATURES A WATERED DOWN VERSION OF POWER POLITICS AND THOSE WHO SEEK TO BE AMBITIOUS BY BEING RUTHLESS AND DISCREDITING PEROPLE EVEN IN THEIR OWN SECTION. AGAIN, WE HAVE BEEN TAPING THE SERIES, BUT THIS TIME WE HAVE NOT SEEN TOO MUCH OF IT THROUGH TIME CONSTRAINTS AND WATCHING OTHER BITS AND PIECES. ALSO, THERE ARE OTHER PROGRAMMES THAT WE TAPE AND BECAUSE MARY WILL WARCH THEM THY HAVE TAKEN PRIORITY.

BUT BACK TO THE BLACKLIST. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE.

SHERRY, I WILL BELIEVE . SUCH AN EASY THING TO DO WHEN YOU ARE IN A HURRY.

1. The first playing of the hymn "Silent Night".

2. Murder the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket

3. The ride of Lady Godiva naked through the marketplace of Coventry. (IF I GET THIS ONE WRONG I SHOULD BE SHOT AS COVENTRY IS MY HOME CITY).

TODAY I AM GOING WITH SUPERSTITIONS TO DO WITH DEATH.

1. If three people are photographed together, according to superstition which one will die?

The one on the right.
The one on the left.
The one in the middle.
None of them.

2. Why should mirrors in a house with a corpse be covered?

A person will see an evil image of the deceased.
The deceased's soul will bounce off the mirror and be forever trapped in the house.
You will be forever haunted by visions in every mirror you pass.
A person who sees themselves will die next.

3. Why should you hold your breath while passing a cemetery?

You will breathe in the spirit of someone recently deceased.
Out of respect for the dead.
You are inviting death into your body.
Five years of bad luck will come your way.

BEST OF LUCK.

TUESDAYS TRIVIA.

1. It's a cold, clear night in a small town near Salzburg, Austria, shortly after the end of the Napoleonic Wars, and the stars are brilliant in the heavens. From the local church comes the sound of a single guitar, and we wonder what's happened to the organ. Doesn't matter really, because what we're hearing now is just so right with the guitar. What are we listening to?

The first playing of the hymn "Silent Night".
One of Bach's sons is playing a new tune he's just composed but since the organ is broken he's improvising on the guitar.
Christmas carollers warming up before going out through the town.
A Christmas recital by the Von Trapp family singers.



2. It's another cold December and we are listening to a very angry king rant on about the person who was once his best friend and is now his sworn enemy. We notice four of our companions nod to each other, as if agreeing to something and then they slip out of the room. We learn later that they are about to commit an act which they hope will please the king. What is it they are planning to do?

Murder the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket.
Kidnap the young Mary, Queen of Scots, from the French court where she's been sent for safety.
Imprison Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of England for plotting against her husband.
Arrest Cardinal Thomas Wolsey for failing to arrange the king's divorce from Katherine of Aragon.



3. It's a hot day in July in the year of Our Lord 1040 and we are at the weekly market of our town. We have been forewarned of an event that is to take place on this day and when it occurs, in respect we avert our eyes, all except one of our number, whom we hold in contempt thereafter. What is it that we chose not to see?

The ride of Lady Godiva naked through the marketplace of Coventry.
The turning out of the scapegoat in the hope that it will alleviate the drought.
A girl child of 12 years put in stocks for killing her child though we know she had been raped.
The funeral cortege of King Canute passed through the town.


GOOD LUCK MAC............ IT'S HISTORY SO I DOUBT YOU WILL HAVE ANY PROBLEMS.

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.

IT'S 2016..

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.

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..

SW... 220 LBS... 15/4/08.

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.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon MAC......... YOU ACED IT BUT I KNEW YOU WOULD.........

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEVER WENT WITH MARY TO TAKE YOUR GRANDSON TO HIS RUGBY TRAINING............

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.......

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.

emoticon

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.
