It's still cold here and my daughter has caught something the children brought home, though she's getting better, so we haven't seen them for a bit. We'll have to go shopping in a couple of days though.

Good morning. I have been nursing an allergic & itchy dog. Poor thing had scratched herself raw (close to where her walking harness rests, so we halted all walks for awhile.) We do all the usual remedies & she still itches. Finally was able to take her on one of our walks, this morning. She had the biggest smile on her face!

We've got cold weather coming in from Siberia, but as it's come at us over land it's very dry. One of our cars has been in for a service, and we picked it up this morning, with the temperature hovering around freezing, but there was no frost to be seen anywhere luckily. Scraping the car's windscreen before you can go out is no joke.

The gym we go to has been refurbished - we should go back and see what they've done. I suspect though that they've done a lot of painting, to get rid of the logo etc from the previous administration, and not nearly so much renewing the old machines that were broken a lot of the time.

Think not. Do.

Eventually, we were able to sit out in the sun for a bit.
I bundled up a bit, for a walk in the sunshine. Air is cool. Sun feels wonderful. Walking is my only exercise, at the moment. Usually I take the dog, but, she is healing from an allergy outbreak (patch of scratched raw skin), so I am only taking her out for short spurts. Under DRs care & improving.

It's been quite cold here in Wales, 6 go 8 C, or low fifties F, and damp as well. When we drove back home from our sons' place on Sunday it rained the whole 5-hr journey. The local gym is being refurbished at the moment. I hope they aren't just painting the walls but replacing the old machines as well - we shall see. Eventually.

Good morning. I hope y'all are having a good start to the week.

Since it's too cold to swim, right now, DH had the idea that we could go up to the pool area of our complex, sit in the sun & read. Sounded like a good idea to me. This morning started out @ 41 degrees. Just got back from a walk. I had bundled up! It's now 57. Hope it warms up more. May have to scratch that sitting outside plan. LOL

Minot disaster - my memory stick failed, and my backup as well. My computer dude managed to get a lot of the information back for me, but last yearj's NaNoWriMo book version is 42k words instead of 54k words. And while rushing round I trod on the small backup laptop and broke the screen. I'm now redoing the projects, and making sure they are now backed up in half a dozen different places. And I've bought another small cheap laptop to carry round with me.

Think not. Do.

We're back in Wales now, and catching up with things. I was off the internet for four days, so I'm working through my unread emails. But I had more in Junk Mail than I had in my inbox.

My SIL got the sack from his job in July, mainly because he wouldn't go full-time. My daughter works from home proofreading, so he's needed to help look after the two boys, especially in the school holidays. She said it would hardly be worth him working full-time if it meant she had to stop her proofreading work and lost her income, especially as she can earn more per hour than he would. Also his parents have a smallholding and he's needed to help out with the work (they live not exactly together but they've split the farmhouse between them). Anyway, now he thinks he will start his own business doing things like grasscutting and handyman, and gradually progress to services to other smallholders. There's plenty of them in this part of the world. He's a good mechanic and can build useful machinery out of odd bits and pieces of other old machines, and he has his own little digger he uses on the farm and has his chainsaw licence, so he's quite handy. Just waiting for the go-ahead from the Job Centre so he gets some support for the first six months.

Think not. Do.

Pay monthly and get a credit per month for any book. The credit costs 6.99, and many of the books cost over 20. Don't think Powys library service provides audio books, they've just cancelled their subscription to the Oxford English Dictionary which I rely on heavily to look up first recorded uses of words.

I joined Audible recently, which has proved cheaper than buying audiobooks individually, if you are careful. I listen to them at the gym (when I go) and sometimes at home, but they do have a very soporific effect. It's not always easy to go back to where you nodded off.

Me too - they don't seem to put them out in Kindle format so much. Which makes for a storage problem for me. Also I don't bring them over to France with me, so my writing is full of notes amounting to "Look this up when I get back".

I haven't noticed the books getting musty, but I read mostly Kindle these days. I did take out some old dead tree books the other day to read and they seemed fine. I suppose keeping air circulating round them would help.

We're in France (with some more books kept here permanently) and my Woman Shed is up, woodstain painted on, and desk assembled. Still needs its electricity supply and some other adjustments, but we're nearly there.

Are there tips somewhere on how to keep books... nice?

Yes, I even have a 6' tall bookcase in the kitchen for cookbooks, and still can't get them all in. I have all my old college books - and I studied French and German literature. I even have my school prize from when I was 11. Then there are Richard's books.

In the house in France there was one metal plate with a switch and socket, the switch for the shower room light. Every time you touched the plate you got an electric shock. We were told that when the old factory up the hill closed down these metal switch/socket plates were taken out in their hundreds and installed all round the village. And every one gave people an electric shock. Richard used to keep a rubber glove by it so he could switch the light on without electrocuting himself.

Think not. Do.

It's said to be from around 1900. Late Victorian at any rate, from the red quarry tiles on the kitchen floor. But it has had lots of alterations over the years, you can see from the stonework.

We do now have indoor plumbing, and the rewiring is just about done. Our electrician said the wiring was about 70 years old. We said did he mean from the 1970s, but he said no, 70 years.

I haven't got rid of many books, I hang on to them like a miser, though I have culled a few. But the storage problem is real. I have bookshelves in nearly every room of the house, and there are still piles of books I don't have shelf space for. Nowadays I tend to buy physical books only if I can't get the ebook version.

Think not. Do.

Just got back from a couple of trips to France. We've finally saved up enough money to have the necessary renovations done, and have also agreed to sell the end bit of our garden to a neighbour. Currently the house has one functional tap, in the kitchen sink, no heating apart from portable gas and electric heaters, and the shower and basin and all the old radiators and boiler and pipework has been taken off. The roof is also being renewed, so is still only half retiled. It's like camping out but in a building.

Think not. Do.

Hello Doreen, and MaryAlice. Long time no chat with you both. I haven't checked in for quite a while. I read back on a month worth of posts. Glad to read you're both well. I figure Doreen got over the sniffles/cold already?

Doreen, a while back, maybe many moons ago, I bought and read both of Fee's books, and reviewed them on Amazon. IDK how they are selling but I enjoyed reading them. I haven't checked back into them. Hope they're doing well.

I've been busy, editing 2 story novel/books now, and of course, my own writing is in process. A bit of a stumbling block when co-author is in a lag and not writing much at all. I can motivate myself, but motivating him is difficult sometimes. Oh well.

Mom doesn't think all romance is fluff. She was just talking about fluff in general. She just happens to read more romance fluff. I've read mystery fluff and sifi fluff and there is quite a bit of fantasy fluff out there. There are a large number of people that think romance is all fluff, but like you said much of it is anything but fluff. She was mostly saying that you should read what you want to read, it's all good. and a book that will get you mind off your problems without filling it with things that will keep you up, will help you get a good nights sleep.

I like your Mom's attitude to Romance, though I don't entirely agree that it's fluff - some of it addresses serious matters, even in Mills & Boon. However, what's wrong with a happy ending? Life can be sad enough without looking for sadness in your reading matter too. Long may she read her romances.

When I was doing bookkeeping for my RSA certificate I had a system - if in doubt, put it in a suspense account. So that's what I did in my exam when there was an amount I just couldn't reconcile. I had a feeling they'd put it in just to see what you did when faced with that sort of problem. Anyway I passed with distinction, so I suppose it was the right thing to do.

Just back from France and going over again next week. We have one functioning tap, the toilet has to be flushed with buckets of water, the heating system never worked and has been ripped out now - two of the radiators had split in a cold winter a year or so ago. There is no wash basin or shower tray, the plumber has gone back for a break in England and the electrician has returned permanently. The DIY centre has sold out of the floor tiles we were going to use. Situation normal ...

Oh, and my tins of baked beans exploded.

Aldous Huxley

Good Afternoon. I've been a bookkeeper for 30 years, I've seen just about everything, but today took the cake. I've been working on accounts that needed major clean up because the people didn't know the difference between income and expense. Today all my accounts were pretty boring, they were all right till I got to the last one. All I have to say is he didn't do anything stupid. Anything he didn't know what to do with he put in an account called Ask My Accountant. I have never seen that account before. At least I know where the problems are.

There is an autistic child that lives down the street. There is a big fence around his property. Every time I have walked the dogs for the last 5 years the boy has run to the fence and stuck his hand though to pet the dog. Last night, his father was opening the gate while the family got in the car. The boy saw Mutt and took off running right into the street. I took Mutt to his side of the street, the father was yelling for the boy, the boy had both arms wrapped around Mutt, squeezing him something fierce, Mutt's tail was going 90 miles an hour. I told the boy Mutt would walk him to the car. Mutt walked very nicely to the car. The boy held Mutt's collar, his eyes as big as dinner plates and a smile that went ear to ear. The father just stood there shaking his head. I'm not sure what surprised him most, that the dog would let the boy treat him that way, the dog would walk the boy to the car, or that in less then a min I had gotten the boy back to the car with no yelling or fighting.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
--John Quincy Adams (sixth President of the United States)

It was raining this morning, so no walk. instead I got a running video of running in Argentina. I was riding my stationary bike watching a video of running across a glacier. I don't know who's bright idea it was to run across the glacier at 4 miles an hour, it looked pretty stupid to me, Now when they were running along Glacier Bay, that was oh so pretty, I wished they would slow down to a walk.

I was talking to Momma, Mom is 82, a minister, a librarian, teaches chair exercises at the senior center, and volunteers at the food pantry. Oh and she gets very crabby if she doesn't get her 12 miles of walking in every day. With all the ice she hasn't gotten much walking in a week, anyway she said that several people had asked her why she read stupid romances. She said they were't stupid they were fluff and made you live longer. She said it doesn't matter which genre you pick, just pick some fluff, books that are easy to read, you don't have to think about, and you pretty much know the ending, before bed read a few chapters, it will clear your mind, get rid of the worries of the day, you will sleep better and everyone knows worry kills more people then then anything else. Oh they may call it something else, but worry is either what got them there or what made it worse.

Good Morning, I'm going in an hour late this morning because yesterday was, well lets just say we all high fives each other for getting though the day and my boss said that because of the stress and not getting our breaks we should take an hour comp time this morning.

I read fast and if the book gets to me not much else gets done. When I do buy books in parts it is when I can get them as a boxed set.

I did read a Part 1 the other day - it was being given away free. I did like it so I've put the whole thing down on my wish list - it costs less than getting the other three parts individually. I read quickly so see no point in getting a book in dribs and drabs.

get better Doreen

I will read most anything, but if a book is a cliffhanger that author is on my do not read list. I will make an exception if the book is a stand alone and says so in the blurb on the description page. If it is a series of stand alone books that should be read in order I will wait till they are all out to read them. So many authors forget hat a book has a beginning middle and end, and call a part a book that I have gotten to the point that unless when looking at the reviews I can tell what kind of end the book has I won't get a book that is in a series.

I like re-reading, especially if it's a series and I've just got the newest one and forgotten a lot of what went before.
