1:42 am
negativeneil

Is which, westford?
1:42 am
negativeneil

1:42 am
negativeneil

'negativeneil' is an online monikker I've used for a few years now.
1:42 am
westford

I knew a Neil but he was Cornelius
1:42 am
rururocks

1:43 am
negativeneil

There are tons of Neils, westford.
1:43 am
westford

ruru it helps to pick up the grid and shake it
1:43 am
negativeneil

Very common/popular name for some reason.
1:43 am
rururocks

tried that already west ...lol
1:43 am
negativeneil

No, ruru... Postive Pete is my antithesis.
1:44 am
negativeneil

Actually you coudl be right. My brother is a very sunny, positive person and I'm always saying I'm his antithesis, because we're total opposites in so many ways. I tell him I naturally oppose him.
1:44 am
negativeneil

His name isn't Pete, though.
1:45 am
rururocks

I am the polar opposite of my brother
1:45 am
negativeneil

Ummm, "could". Typing is suffering.
1:45 am
westford

you have such a warm pleasing personality in here Neil
1:45 am
negativeneil

Yes, I would say I am too.
1:46 am
negativeneil

Why thank you, westford. I won't show you the video I shot of myself freaking out in a Singapore hotel room last year then... because there was a car race going on right around the hotel and I couldn't sleep because of it!
1:46 am
westford

lol that's a good reason to flip out
1:47 am
rururocks

don't stay in NYC and expect any sleep either neil
1:47 am
jillibus

Gotta go back to the kitchen and do the dishes...
1:47 am
negativeneil

I don't think I seem too warm and pleasing in that. You'd have to plug your ears at the end of it too, becauase of my language.
1:47 am
westford

I thought everyone behaved in Singapore
1:47 am
negativeneil

Oh I have stayed and slept there, ruru. Much better than in that Singapore hotel room, lemme tell ya!
1:47 am
westford

or else ....
1:47 am

1:50 am
negativeneil

No, SamathaJoy. I videotaped myself so I could post the clip on my Youtube page for my famliy and friends to see... and so they could hear and see what was going on. I wasn't sure they'd believe it otherwise... what hotel has a race track going right around it with a car race going on ALL NIGHT?
1:50 am
jillibus

Oh, nice picture -- I like your longer hair
1:50 am
negativeneil

Well not taped... you know. With a digital video recorder.

Ugh, Jilli? My hair is an unruly mess if I let it grow in!

I guess so, Samantha.
1:51 am

I wish we had known about that BEFORE we booked ourselves into that hotel. Geez!
1:52 am

you need a dish pan neil
1:54 am

I hope you posted the name of the hotel
1:54 am

1:57 am

1:58 am
rururocks

*uh right*
1:58 am
westford

or so I'd like to believe
1:59 am
negativeneil

Of course I do my dishes, ruru. Think I want my sink and counter full of mess? Uhhh, no.
1:59 am
westford

that was me neil
1:59 am
rururocks

I like dishwashers personally.. no muss no fuss
2:00 am
westford

me too
2:00 am
jillibus

2:00 am
negativeneil

Oh it was westford that said that, sorry.
2:00 am
negativeneil

Haha, I'm too tired.
2:00 am
rururocks

I'd prefer a personal assistant and a dishwasher however
2:00 am
negativeneil

If I had room for one I'd have one, ruru.
2:00 am
negativeneil

But you see my little galley kitchen?
2:00 am
rururocks

hmmm
2:02 am
westford

could you have one built in?
2:02 am
rururocks

no.. I didn't.. but I had a tiny kitchen when I lived in Palo Alto
2:02 am
rururocks

no.. I didn't.. but I had a tiny kitchen when I lived in Palo Alto
2:02 am
jillibus

You're still in the same place, neil? But on the road a lot too, right?
2:02 am
negativeneil

I'm only one person, don't have that many dishes to wash.
2:02 am
negativeneil

Meaning I still live in that same apartment, yes. But I'm not there now, however... I'm not in Dallas, TX.
2:03 am
negativeneil

Flew here this morning... or yesterday morning I guess I mean now. From Charlotte, NC.
2:04 am
negativeneil

No I couldn't have one built in, westford. I don't really have enough kitchen cupboard/storage space as it is, withoug doing that.
2:04 am
negativeneil

Without even. Geez. I can type better than this!
2:04 am
jillibus

neil -- what's that funny white plastic thing to the left of the sink?
2:05 am
negativeneil

It's a coffee pot, Jilli.
2:05 am
negativeneil

A glass one with a white handle and lid attached.
2:05 am
negativeneil

The lid is up.
2:05 am
jillibus

Oh, I see now, lol! Hadn't seen the glass part.
2:06 am
negativeneil

Oh, ok.
2:07 am
rururocks

oh.. I just looked at your photos neil.. your brother is a very, very talented person..
2:07 am
negativeneil

Yes, he can certainly sing. If I sing, I can clear a room.
2:08 am
rururocks

me too
2:08 am
negativeneil

Haha!
2:08 am
negativeneil

There could be money in that, couldn't there?
2:08 am
rururocks

he and Jennifer Hudson are the greatest talents that show has ever discovered
2:08 am
negativeneil

Just think. Maybe we could get hired at closing time in some bar to sing.
2:09 am
rururocks

yeah.. that would be good pay..
2:09 am
negativeneil

At least in my case, that would make the patrons leave. In a big hurry.
2:09 am
negativeneil

They would run out the door screaming.
2:10 am
jillibus

over halfway at last.
2:10 am
rururocks

i haven't found much now..
2:11 am
negativeneil

Clues wanted? I have one eye shut and the other is about half closed now.
2:11 am
rururocks

I'm going to take some medicine and head to bed. I didn't sleep much last night
2:12 am
jillibus

Still too many missing, thanks, neil.
2:12 am

ruru, what are you going to do about that knee?
2:12 am
negativeneil

Did you see me as a little toddler, ruru? I was cute... once.
2:12 am
westford

I'm back and had to scroll who is your brother Neil?
2:13 am
rururocks

no I missed that .. but the elephant shot is a trip
2:13 am
westford

I always check mail at the 'burp'
2:13 am
westford

ruru are you ill?
2:13 am
rururocks

I destroyed my left knee west.. it's a mess
2:14 am
rururocks

yeah I was a cute kid too.. but with big ears
2:14 am
jillibus

so what are you going to do about it, ruru?
2:14 am
westford

oh I'm so sorry what are you going to do?
2:14 am
westford

snap jilli
2:14 am
rururocks

A doctor friend of mine is helping me get an appointment with a specialist in SF
2:15 am

oh good, ruru
2:15 am

you'll get a replacement and be good as new

Oh man. Hope they can do something for you, ruru.
2:16 am
negativeneil

Didn't work? It worked for you, jilli?

Of course I had curls!

My hair was just tamed there.

I just made it to 100 and the wi derelict was my last word
2:21 am

Interesting tattoo...

rururocks

i'll shut up now
2:22 am

I know him..you should be proud neil

2:24 am

No kidding;. not broadcast in here anyway.

Painkillers aren't going to be the answer, are they?
2:26 am
jillibus

Poor ruru -- hope you can get help very soon.
2:26 am
rururocks

no.. and they aren't really working anyway.. Mrs Ru knocked me over by accident and I just about passed out from the pain
2:27 am
Haz1558

Then please, for your own sake, don't put up any excuses for not having surgery sooner rather than later.
2:27 am
jillibus

I guess you can't work, ruru?
2:28 am
rururocks

no..I'm working.. just moving a lot slower than normal
2:28 am

we discussed surgery tonight and I am caving in .. the pain is too great
2:29 am

sometimes pain can be your friend
2:29 am

so she knows what's best then
2:29 am

I was thinking a face lift and a tummy tuck at the same time.. what do you guys think
2:29 am
Haz1558

I'm glad you've seen sense. I put off gall bladder surgery for years (no comparison with the pain you're suffering) and it was such a doddle I wondered why I'd put up with the thing for so long.
2:30 am
westford

I'm ashamed of myself. I just assumed the doctor was a man.
2:30 am
rururocks

I've never had surgery Haz.. it's kind of intimidating to me
2:30 am
jillibus

tsk tsk west
2:31 am
Haz1558

I tried asking for liposuction at the same time but they wouldn't contemplate it. The anaesthetist confirmed that liposuction wasn't subtle. Now there's a man who knows how to understate.
2:31 am
westford

I have to get out of the 19th century
2:31 am
Haz1558

Yes, but ruru, don't forget that those who are doing the surgery ARE used to it. They have training, they know what they're doing.
2:31 am
rururocks

you are so tiny haz.. liposuction you gotta be kidding us
2:31 am
jillibus

ruru, I've had lots of surgery and you just sleep through it, lol.

Speaking of sleep...goodnight all...*poof
2:33 am

It's not bad ruru. You don't know anything about it until it's all over. You get put under and it seems like you're coming to again right away. No sense of time passing.

2:36 am
rururocks

I am pretty pain tolerant.. I usually don't complain .. I handle pain pretty well.. this is way beyond my limits
2:36 am
rururocks

no.. I didn't have to.. I just needed to not do tennis for 3 months. and the tendon healed itself
2:37 am
Haz1558

Yes, but have you not noticed that there's no nightly medal ceremony handing you a gong for tolerating pain well?
2:37 am

I got 8 weeks of physical therapy and was as good as new
2:37 am

damn... I've been waiting for that ceremony.. now I know it's not coming..rats

Physiotherapy can be great - painful but it works.

Sorry to disappoint, ruru. It's like me waiting for the Christmas inspector every year, coming round to make sure I've done everything perfectly. He/she never comes.

we'll have to cough one up here for you this holiday season

It's actually quite liberating once you realise nobody is going to inspect your house or question your guests about the quality of the food etc. You can just relax.

hi Diz - just trying the very thinly sliced biscuityvariety - so just baked in a shallow loaf tin. You bake it again after a few days and after you slice it up
3:31 am

That presupposes that someone doesn't eat it before it gets baked again?
3:32 am

Missed your return, lynxx and hello, dizgrannie.
3:32 am

I made lemon slices as well which will be more attractive to that 'someone'
3:33 am
Haz1558

Lemon slices sound good as well. I remember years ago that Friday was my mother's baking day. We hardly knew what a shop bought biscuit was.
3:34 am
Haz1558

She'd start in the morning with all the different breads and then move on to cakes, apple tarts, biscuits and buns. I moved in for the kill when bowls needed to be scraped clean.

The lemon slices are delish - very tart.........http://www.taste.com.au/r

mmmmm - never made buns - nor bread if it comes to that. Think I am worried about yeast

I've just looked up the lemon slices - we make the same one here, except the biscuits of choice are called Marie biscuits. The icing is lovely and tart.

The breads she made didn't have yeast - potato bread (flat things done on the griddle) plus soda bread, wheaten bread etc. Typically Irish stuff made with buttermilk.
3:37 am
lynxxx

Yes, we have Marie biscuits too. The Granita ones are v. similar except a bit thicker and probably have oatmeal in them
3:37 am
Haz1558

The oatmeal would give a nice texture.
3:38 am
Haz1558

I take bursts of baking but have never had an established day every week.
3:39 am
Haz1558

Anyway, that almond bread, why does it have to be baked twice?
3:41 am
lynxxx

After the inital bake, you wrap it in foil and store away for a couple of days. Then slice it VERY thinly and rebake until lightly brown and VERY crisp. It really should be called almond biscuits I guess
3:43 am
Haz1558

That's interesting. I suppose it's still edible after first baking but improves with being sliced down. Someone in my house would probably try it just to be sure.
3:43 am

I was throwing out Mum's recipe book (I know - feeling guilty) and flipped through all the recipes she had written up - obviously when she was visiting at friends
3:44 am
Haz1558

Did you copy out quite a few recipes?
3:44 am
lynxxx

Here is a similar recipe...http://www.bestrecipes.com.au
/recipe/Almond-Bread-L553.html
3:45 am
lynxxx

No. I saved a couple to try. Thought I would give the Apricot Chicken casserole etc a miss otherwise!
3:48 am
Haz1558

Just looked up the almond recipe - with no marge etc it's probably fairly low fat. Have you got to the stage of tasting it or is that a couple of days away?
3:48 am
lynxxx

Mum was very much a burnt chops, mashed potatoes and boiled peas type of cook (just what my Dad liked!). It was only when she was in her late 40+s that she got more adventurous
3:49 am
Haz1558

I'm laughing at the idea of boiling peas - were these the dried peas, soaked and cooked sort?
3:49 am
lynxxx

Hopefully it will turn out like ones I have had a heap of times...very crispy - excellent with coffee
3:50 am
lynxxx

oh no - never dried peas...we kids were very good at shelling peas
3:51 am
Flask1

Good morning ladies!
3:51 am
Haz1558

We had fresh peas from the garden when they were in season but those were the days before freezers etc so we used to have these dried things in the winter-time. They'd be soaked and brought back to life again but they bore little resemblance to the original fresh green pea.
3:51 am

Good morning, Flask!

I'd still use them if I were making soup along with lentils, barley etc but I'd never dream of serving them as a vegetable now. And yes, I remember when roast chicken was tasty!
3:52 am
lynxxx

mind you - Dad chopped the head off the chook and hung it on the Hills Hoist (rotary clothes line) before mum gutted it in the laundry trough
3:52 am
Haz1558

Hello, cosdem.
3:53 am
Haz1558

I take it you had your own chickens?
3:53 am

Ken seems to have a fascination w. dried peas - throws them into rice when he cooks it. A packet of dried peas actually costs a fortune nowadays
3:54 am
lynxxx

Didn't everyone?
3:55 am
Haz1558

I suppose if you lived out in the country there'd be chickens pecking away.
3:56 am
lynxxx

keeping chickens here has become a bit of a thing here lately - in the inner suburbs too
3:56 am
Haz1558

Husband's uncle used to have a little factory and at Christmas time he ordered turkeys for the directors and share-holders. They were sent out to hang in father-in-law's shed and husband remembers having to duck his head to avoid all these ghostly birds hanging about.
3:57 am
lynxxx

Our building blocks used to be quite large so when I was growing up so it was usual for most families to have a chook shed (40s and 50s).
3:57 am
Haz1558

They'll definitely taste better - the commercial varieties are only a matter of weeks old when they're slaughtered.
3:58 am
lynxxx

Turkeys have only become usual fare here in the last 15-20 years
3:59 am
Haz1558

Chickens are surprisingly stinky. You don't want to be downwind of a field being spread with chicken manure.
3:59 am
lynxxx

Huge demand here for organic free range chicken and eggs - cage variety and even barn raised varieties are definately on the wane
4:00 am

dr7 - rearrange the first letters of Mr Stewart, singer, then the Spanish for 'will be' as with the Doris Day song.
4:03 am

Rod Stewart and Doris Day - now that would be an unlikely duetting couple.

9:34 am

they are very realistic and have scented ax often. can use with greens on mantel with no fear
9:36 am

So they'd be good at Christmas. A local department store already has Christmas goods out. Maybe I should tell them about the flameless candles.

9:42 am

i am with you molly
9:42 am
72 Temple Owl

well haz, let me put it to you this way: it is not wind that kills, it is water. no avoiding that and the fact that we have had over 13 inches of rain so far in august. there is no preparation, really. in the old days people ould be taken in by the calm before the storm, having no idea of anything to come.
9:42 am
car.eeyore

No, don't love those aspects.
9:43 am

Yes, July, so hotel prices in May should be more reasonable.

They are taking this pretty seriously. East Coast ground transit has been shut down.
1:19 pm
JBV

wait, just passing by and saw your post Molly, transit shut down but people are expected to evacuate? are they kidding?
1:20 pm
JBV

where do they think all these people are going to go? I heard someone say last night, just stay with friends. As if there were nothing to it, as if everybody has friends, as if the friends are also not in the same target area. Makes me crazy
1:28 pm
MollyL

I don't know JBV, it's the RUN FOR YOUR LIFE mentality. Sure, people on the immediate coast should get to higher ground. Further inland, they are concerned about downed wires and big time power outages. We just got the recorded message from our power company. BE READY AND DON'T CALL US WHINING.
1:30 pm
JBV

I got a call from our local police department, recording with same message - don't be scared be prepared
1:37 pm
MollyL

People are going to start realizing the importance of having a land line. Cell phones are usually useless in emergency situations. And you need to have a "non-wireless" phone to plug into that land line connection.
1:39 pm
JBV

What do you mean by "non-wireless" phone - will my cordless phone not work? I have no idea how it works
1:40 pm
Riverdance

wireless phones take electricity
1:40 pm
Riverdance

if no power then no phone
1:41 pm
Riverdance

just popped in to see if mrp was here - guess not - must get back to work - be safe in the storm everyone...will be batt'n down the hatches myself
1:41 pm
JBV

so what's the point of having a land line then? am I doing something wrong? please explain
1:41 pm
Riverdance

I do have one regular phone direct - not a cordless - that will work without power
1:42 pm
MollyL

You need an older model, push button, non-wireless phone to maintain your land line phone service in a power outage.
1:42 pm
MollyL

I still have a rotary phone, that rings : D
1:42 pm
JBV

oh, OK, I have one of those in my bedroom, the phone wire is plugged into a phone outlet on the wall!
1:42 pm
JBV

So will that one work even if all the other (cordless) phones don't?
1:43 pm
Dorens

hullo
1:43 pm
Riverdance

that is an oldie.. you are all set then JBV - gotta run - poof
1:43 pm
MollyL

Yes it will JBV. The wireless phones need to be plugged into an electrical outlet. That phone in your bedroom does not.
1:43 pm
JBV

I think I have a box of rotary phones in the garage - why? don't even ask, but I'm sure I can't find them
1:43 pm
JBV

hi dorens, everything battened down??
1:44 pm
MollyL

Hi Dorens
1:45 pm
Dorens

not at all battened down, trying to get off the island tomorrow morning... in martha's vineyard.. had ferry reservations for sunday!!
1:46 pm
Calllie

Landlines carry the power they need to operate a phone that plugs into them. Cordless models use electricity from your house service, so if that goes out, the cordless phone base is nonfunctional. If the phone lines are damaged, you won't have service, but as long as they remain intact, a corded land line will work. The instrument can be push button, so long as it draws its power from the landline and does not depend on house current. Wireless phones are not particularly reliable in emergencies (like our recent earthquake) because towers can be damaged or lose power or be overwhelmed with callers. Phone service via cable is as vulnerable as the cable service itself.
1:46 pm
MollyL

Is that the Rhode Island ferry? I read it's shutting down Friday afternoon.
1:47 pm
Dorens

no molly the steamship authority! (great name isn't it?)
1:48 pm
Dorens

might try to get out tonite - depends on if they can get extra ferries in.... they're all booked up for cars already.
1:49 pm
MollyL

Hope you get home safe and sound Dorens.
1:54 pm
JBV

oh! you're still in Martha's Vineyard - wishing you a safe trip, doren
1:55 pm
JBV

thanks, Callie - I do understand when you explain it like that, I guess it's something I've never really thought about, fortunately we have never lost phone service here (been here 21 years)

hi all - am leaving in a minute but wanted to drop in!
3:30 pm

Removed what?
3:31 pm
carleekat

after the tongue lashing i received...i decided it is not worth the trouble...and nor is it worth the trouble for those in your circle for whom it could make trouble
3:31 pm
negativeneil

If that's you, didn't want you to remove anything... just make those changes I described.
3:31 pm
negativeneil

What tongue lashing? Huh? Didn't see any such thing there... what are you talking about?
3:31 pm
carleekat

i deleted the circle entirely
3:31 pm

its ok ... NN.. i have had enough crap in my life... i dont need more crap..i appreciate your kindness.. truly :)
3:32 pm
negativeneil

If you mean J, I didn't see any such thing there? There was nothign nasty about it at all... how are you seeing that?
3:33 pm
negativeneil

Well I didn't see any crap there and neither did anyone else that I'm aware? Just asking Laura.
3:33 pm
carleekat

it is because he knows very well who I am... and he knows my story...
3:33 pm

its ok... :)

and honestly..i dont want to ever embarrass.. nor miss click on anything that could jeopardize anyone there
3:34 pm
uusue2

hi, mrp! good to see you!!!
3:34 pm
negativeneil

Ummm, no. Apparently he didn't know who you were, because the name you're using isn't familiar to him and he didn't recognize the photos you're using. He's probably never seen them before. So all he knew is a total stranger was tryign to add him and that's a big privacy concern. I can't understand why you want to think that, but whatever?
3:35 pm
carleekat

he woul dknow from the nic name just as you did dear :)
3:35 pm
negativeneil

All he was doing was trying to find out who it was, for pete's sake. Totally understandable. Nothing nasty about that... he clearly didnt' know.
3:35 pm
carleekat

its...ok he is right
3:36 pm
carleekat

for privacy.. i rather not...for your's and his..and others
3:36 pm
negativeneil

Umm, no. I didn't know from the nickname at all, because it's nothing like the one you use here... so obviously he didn't know it either. The only way I had any idea, is that when you joined you were automatically added to my circles... which meant you were someone I had invited. He had no way of seeing that. so that's a very unfair assumption.
3:36 pm
mrpresident

how you going girls and boys?
3:36 pm
carleekat

carleekat... and the email dear :) as he said...everything was visible
3:36 pm

3:38 pm
carleekat

yea... i have really been missing him...
3:38 pm
mrpresident

well frankly!! darn it sue!
3:38 pm
negativeneil

All he sould have seen is that name that's nothing like the one you use here. And photos he wouldn't have recognized I'm guessing. So that's not much to go on. The only reason I suspected it might be you is because of the automatic connection to my page when you joined... so that had to be on an invitation, see? He couldn't have seen or known any of that though. Hope that's clearer? There's no way he could have known who you were.
3:38 pm
carleekat

this must be one of those waves of grief
3:38 pm
carleekat

its ok NN... no worries :)
3:39 pm

those waves are tremendous, but eventually do come down to small splashes on the sands of time

he is also retaking physics 2 (having gotten a D in it in the spring - mostly because of his life having been messed up for reasons I won't get into again), and taking English 103 and Communication 100 (typical freshman courses, although he's a sophomore)

I need to talk to him, scrabs; he's on top of a ridge so no problem with floods; no tall trees next to his house so that should not be a problem either. Mostly I worry about what would happen if his power goes out for an extended period of time.

well, molly, she was quite ill herself, wanted more round-the-clock care than he could give her, and became quite frightened when he was injured and gone for 5 weeks; I understand that. I even understand why she wanted to go into assisted living near her sons. I don't understand why she is insisting on a divorce instead of just living apart.
7:25 pm

7:27 pm
uusue2

indeed, sprite! she said (in response to his latest overture) that she feels like he cares more about the house than he does about her. He doesn't, but he sees himself as a provider, and part of that is providing a place to live (my interpretation).
7:28 pm
uusue2

carlee, the whole story is still in my profile, but you have to scroll past all the physics babblets to get to it :-)
7:28 pm

That is the part that I don't get Sue. And as I've said before, this all stinks of involvement from her son.

7:29 pm

colour + equine, hi cwest
7:30 pm
uusue2

well, he was there the last time I visited, molly, and had a very long talk with my dad and me. He really heard what my dad had to say; as far as I can tell he relayed it to her faithfully. I did talk to her right after they argued (back in February) and she said right then that as far as she was concerned the marriage was over. So it is certainly not originating with him, although he is certainly on her side (as I am on my dad's)
7:30 pm

u just take 2L of milk ( I am using whole milk ) and mixing in 4 tbsp of yogurt with active culture in it...( read the label )... mix it in thoroughly....cover your bowl with celophane... and place in a WARM place 9 I set on the floor in front of vent for the moter for my fridge..I place a blanket around it to keep it toasty..and let sit for 12 hours....voila..yoghurt
7:40 pm
sprite

ok don't know a yoghurt starter, will check it out
7:40 pm

I actually have a yogurt maker that keeps it at the right temperature overnight, and you can use a couple of tablespoons of fresh yogurt as a starter
7:40 pm
sprite

ah I see! Thanks :)
7:40 pm
MollyL

Okay, I have always thought yogurt was gross. Now that I know how it's made, I think it's even grosser.
7:40 pm

(sorry bout the typos..am guardin gmy ice cream from a dog...)
7:41 pm

mine says to boil the milk, so I do (before putting the starter in, because that would kill it) but apparently it is not necessary
7:41 pm
carleekat

cheese is gross to molls...and STINKS if you ahve ever been in a cheese factory...and BEER..is ICKY!!!!!!
7:41 pm

and you can add extra powdered milk to make it thicker and higher in calcium
7:42 pm

Yes, but cheese and beer are not slimy.

it's an acquired taste, molly :-)
7:42 pm

again, molly, it depends on the cheese. It is possible for (perfectly good) cheese to be rather slimy in texture (or rather yogurt-like, anyway; I've had food go slimy in the refrigerator, and it is not the same to me)

Hi Molly. Well, we haven't found new jobs yet, and the house nearly flooded tonight, but otherwise we're fine. All in good health, since Other Half's hand has now healed after he accidentally drove a screwdriver through it. :-/
9:14 pm
Jacula

Me and Beloved are off on a pre-booked and paid for holiday for a week in a few hours. So, that's good.
9:15 pm

That is good. Time to get away from it all and re-charge your spirits.
9:16 pm

Yes.
9:17 pm

I'll be back home in the Rhinog mountains in Wales. It'll probably rain most of the time, but the views and the way they make me feel are worth it.

I shouldn't be up now - I've been cooking and doing packing like a whirling dervish all of yesterday, and then the saving of the house from flooding, then more packing after the shakes and the tears had subsided after i'd done it, then more packing.
9:29 pm
Jacula

Beloved got home from work just before midnight, went to bed at about 2am and will no doubt be up at 7am to pack the car and want me ready to travel by 8am. In his dreams! No point anyway, since the earliest we can get into the caravan is 3.30pm.
9:31 pm
Jacula

He's still young enough to manage on 4 or 5 hojurs' sleep. Me? I need 8 minimum.
9:35 pm
Jacula

Speaking of sleep, I think I've calmed down enough, and it isn't raining at the moment, to get some rest now. So, unless anyone urgently needs clues within the next 20 mins., I will go to bed.
9:37 pm
crosshair

what is this sleep you speak of?
9:38 pm
Jacula

Hi Crossy - sleep is the state where the body relaxes and the brain switches off enough to let the body lie still and relax. The brain doesn't stop, of course, since it has to keep funtions funtioning, and give us weird dreams etc.
9:39 pm
crosshair

crossy sleeps from midnight till two then from 5 am till 7 am or so
9:39 pm

9:40 pm

That's a bummer, crossy!
9:42 pm
Jacula

I often get woken on the hour, every hour, by night sweats. But, if I have a little too much alcohol, I can do at least 4 hours, wake and then another 4 or 5. Not the best solution, though!
9:42 pm
crosshair

ever get the leg aches jacula?
9:43 pm
crosshair

best fix is a long body pillow placed lengthwise tween the knees
9:43 pm
Jacula

When I do sleep well and haven't gone to bed too late, I wake up at a normal time, full of vigour, put a full day in and fall into bed at 10pm.
9:43 pm
Jacula

Crossy - no leg aches yet.
9:45 pm
Jacula

intermittent claudication is a condition I'm all to aware of, Crossy (re your leg aches query). An ex-b/f of mine, who died too young last year, suffered from that in his 40s and 50s.
9:45 pm
Jacula

He was an alcoholic.
9:46 pm
Jacula

Also a smoker.
9:46 pm
Jacula

Stopping both didn't save him.
9:47 pm

a good note is i gave up the smokes in 2002
9:47 pm
