Hi Rose. How are the weather conditions over your way. No roads closed for fires, floods or anything?
1:15 am
flosey

yes, just looked out, mild winds, but oddly, the cat decided he wanted to come in - seldom happens, he has decided he is an outdoor cat and wishes to be fed at the office door
1:16 am
grannyrose

we have had some pretty bad fires, but lots of rain in the last 24 hours. praying that it is heading to the fire areas. we did have a lot of smoke for nearly a week.
1:16 am
flosey

maybe he senses a storm???
1:16 am
VolleymomDee

sure could be
1:17 am
grannyrose

and you anike? how is it for you? did i read you were packing? for where?
1:18 am
anike

I noticed that there were fires around Bendigo and the Calder Hwy so I'm hoping the rain has put them out but not created floods. Packing for Phillip Island...again!!
1:19 am
grannyrose

*giggle* you poor thing! haven't heard of any floods over here. adelaide was the worst hit with the rain.

just about every type of meat...chicken, lamb, beef, pork, with all the gravies, sauces etc
1:33 am

1:33 am
puglet

was it a outing just for you and Don? Or did others from church go too
1:34 am
grannyrose

oh, meant to say, roasted meat. roast vegies, and the cold buffet is to die for. cold bbq chicken, ham, shelled prawns, king prawns(you shell those yourself) salads, hard-boiled egsgs
1:36 am
grannyrose

just don and i went. i am thinking of holding his 60th birthday there in april. oh and the desserts, there was a range of 10 different desserts to choose from. everything was in small portions, and you could go back again and again

3:32 am
puglet

sister is fine and besides my mouth, Iam fine and how about you
3:33 am
sprite

again a little bit better, I think. Still low on energy and a bit downish, but otherwise fine. Anything you can do about your mouth?
3:34 am
puglet

OO gave me some help yesterday and tomorrow Iam making some calls
3:34 am

awesome. Our o-o is a good one.
3:35 am
puglet

if my roof wasent so sore and swollen it wouldnt be so bad--it hurts to eat oatmeal-lol
3:36 am
sprite

oh that is horrible :(
Gentle hugs for you... hope you will get help soonest.
3:36 am
puglet

is there a reason for the downish or its just there
3:36 am
sprite

just there, and mostly because of being low on energy, I think. It seems it is not unusual after a flu.
3:37 am
puglet

that flu once someone gets it, it just seems to linger forever
3:37 am
puglet

are you going to make group tomorrow
3:38 am
sprite

yes, will go. I think I only have about 6 days left, will make the most of it.
3:39 am
puglet

and then what?
3:40 am
puglet

Rose says she has phy. tomorrow too
3:40 am
sprite

just heard that my psychiatrist will stop her practice starting 1-1-2015. Because of the insane new rules that the insurance companies insist upon. So I guess it will be very hard work to get myself ready to do without as soon as group is over.
3:41 am
sprite

lovely. She is getting there, babystep by babystep.
3:41 am
puglet

you cant find another one
3:42 am
sprite

pug, it took me ages and ages to find her... she is specialised in ptsd and thinks outside the box and is a great person too. Am not positive I can find another one like her. And I have had my fill of bad therapists, to be honest.
3:43 am
puglet

can she help you to find a replacement---or do you think you can handle things on your own
3:45 am
sprite

will contact her this week and talk things through with her. I think I am almost ready to go out on my own. We could probably manage to wrap it up this calender year. And I want to know what she is going to do... seems she will go work together with the psychiatrist who does the family constellations... so maybe I can do something there.
3:45 am
puglet

or can you pay her for personal help if no other way then online help

3:56 am

3:56 am

lol don't push it, o-o... we might end up with a 700+ grid on a week day and that would frustrated me big time :)

hi Liz! You should visit rose and hide in her airconditioned bedroom :)
4:03 am
sprite

yes pug, could very well be.
4:04 am
sprite

it has an awesome view over the lake, pug, and very tasty food.
4:04 am
puglet

sounds lovely
4:04 am
Lizlin

We've also got air con but we're using the fans at the moment! Will use the air con to cool the bedroom later tonight though.
4:04 am
Lizlin

Just googled it - saw the lake. Looks lovely.
4:04 am
puglet

can you sit outdoors
4:05 am
sprite

I guess you have to be selective... or you'd go broke on power. Is there always enough power where you live, Liz?
4:05 am
sprite

yes, huge terrace
4:05 am
Lizlin

Could do but probably won't this evening. Usually enough power, though it goes out in storms sometimes. The worst was for 48 hours last January after Cyclone Oswald!
4:06 am
Lizlin

Ah! Outdoors at the restaurant. Silly me!
4:06 am
sprite

argh, 48 hours, that is nasty
4:07 am
Lizlin

It's not often as hot and humid here as it is today and probably tomorrow.
4:07 am
sprite

lol yes Liz, not outdoors where you are, I think. Too da4 hot.
4:07 am
puglet

have you got a storm coming in Liz
4:07 am
Lizlin

it was nasty! Thank goodness for the barbecue, so we could cook and make coffee etc! Cooked up a load of meat from the freezer, so didn't lose too much of that!
4:08 am
sprite

smart. Would really be bad to lose so much meat from your storage too.
4:08 am
Lizlin

Worst thing was that even in summer it gets dark about 6.30 - 7.00 here, so the nights were really long!
4:09 am
sprite

oh, how strange! That is so different from here!
4:09 am
Lizlin

Especially as we buy meat in bulk.
4:10 am
puglet

did you get your car problem fixed Liz

I miss long summer evenings - it's one of the things I enjoyed about our holiday in Canada last year and will look forward to visiting the UK later in the year.
4:10 am
Lizlin

Should get it back tomorrow. They're replacing the gear box.
4:10 am
sprite

did you hear anything back from your niece, Liz?
4:10 am
sprite

ouch... expensive repair
4:11 am
Lizlin

New car, sprite - had only had it 3 days but it's completely guaranteed.
4:11 am
rubyfoo

that is what is nice about here. Although it's dark before 5 in Dec, it uickly lightens up and by June,there is still some light at 11PM
4:11 am
puglet

are they covering that Liz
4:11 am
puglet

good for you Liz
4:11 am
sprite

oh, great, am glad. Well, not that it needed repairs, but that you won't suffer from it.
4:11 am
Lizlin

You mean my friend? Either way, no, not yet, which is a bit strange but she can be a bit scatty at times!
4:12 am
sprite

yes, it is really nice where you live, ruby. I like your place a lot.
4:12 am
puglet

brb
4:12 am
Lizlin

In the winter it gets dark about 5.30 - so not a lot of difference between winter and summer.
4:12 am
rubyfoo

I never noticed it in the US although I lived all over, but here it is very dramatic
4:13 am
Lizlin

Sprite - I'll chase her again in a few days - possibly on Skype.
4:13 am
sprite

oh sorry, your friend. Ok, I am a little bit worried that she feels bad about it. She really needs to let me know her costs so I can repay her, Liz... I so hope she doesn't feel taken advantage of.
4:13 am
Lizlin

No, I'm sure she doesn't and as i said, if she doesn't want to send it, we'll sort it later in the year.
4:14 am
sprite

no hurry at all, Liz, later in the year would be just as fine :)
4:14 am
sprite

I actually would prefer it, lolollll.... if it means I get to meet you in person!
4:14 am
Lizlin

We're pretty definitely visiting my nephew in Paris then and if it's not too expensive, we'd love to do a quick day in Amsterdam!
4:15 am
puglet

4:20 am

4:22 am
puglet

yes
4:23 am
sprite

I like knowing where you guys are in the series... kind of enjoying it second hand too :D
4:23 am
puglet

I dont think we said anything to hurt OO, do you
4:24 am
puglet

how did you find these small stories in those books(like has 4 stories)
4:24 am
sprite

not that I am aware, no. Though sometimes things touch him in a wrong way that I didn't see coming. Anyway, I hope and trust that he knows we would never intentionally hurt him in any way.
4:25 am
sprite

do you mean how did I like them or how did I discover them?
4:25 am
puglet

and that one little book about the tapistry
4:26 am
puglet

how did you discover them
4:27 am
sprite

through the reading list. Atalante (she is a babbler too) pointed me to the series and gave me a reading order list. The short stories were on it and I bought the anthologies.
4:27 am
puglet

oh, cause those are not on list thats online
4:28 am
sprite

no indeed. But the reading list I sent you should be complete, up to Styxx. I just saw that Son of No-one is the next one in the DH series.
4:29 am
puglet

Is she not on here any more? I dont think Ive ever seen her on here
4:29 am
sprite

and there is another short story, House of the Rising Son. That has not yet appeared online, I think. Once I have it, I will make sure you get it too.
4:29 am
puglet

is that after styxx
4:29 am
puglet

okay thanks
4:30 am
sprite

no, she doesn't play much anymore and never chats. She is living a whole other life now, got divorced, moved, got a new job.
4:30 am
sprite

yes, it comes after Styxx.
4:31 am
puglet

sometimes I can pick up books at the secondhand stores at a tiny price---Ive been on the look out for styxx
4:32 am
puglet

but I still have several before I come to that book anyways
4:32 am
sprite

awesome! Styxx is beautiful.
4:32 am
puglet

you have already read it
4:33 am
sprite

yes I have
4:33 am
puglet

and it goes with the DH series
4:33 am
sprite

yes it does. You will meet Styxx earlier in the series.
4:33 am
puglet

okay
4:34 am
sprite

oh pug, did someone tell you there is a jn5/20 in today's grid?
4:35 am
puglet

Yes, I asked Rose for the stats and I got it on my own
4:35 am
puglet

I dont know what it means yet though--will look it up later
4:36 am
sprite

good, wonderful! A very uncommon letter combination, that is why I asked.
4:36 am
puglet

I know--it is
4:37 am
puglet

Iam down to 99---dont have any 7 or 8 's but I got all day off and on to get what I can---I got over half so Iam pleased
4:38 am
sprite

good job!
4:38 am
puglet

Iam suprise that ca8 isnt a word--like people like joso and crossy
4:39 am
puglet

I keep wanting sardines to be a word--lol
4:39 am
sprite

the def of the jn is: knowledge acquired through meditation and study as a means of reaching Brahman
4:39 am
sprite

it is a word, but it is capitalised and therefore not valid in this game
4:39 am
sprite

lollll yes that is a lovely phantom
4:40 am
puglet

is brahman a god
4:40 am
sprite

no, brahman is a state of enlightenment, I think
4:41 am
sprite

oh, and it is also a god, yes! Brahma, or Brahmin, or Brahman.
4:41 am
puglet

and I thought what you sit on in a auto would be a word but its not
4:42 am
sprite

pug, do you know that you can also click the question mark next to the work in your word list to go to the definition?
4:42 am
ivesy3

i say this as a compliment, pug you have come so far in playing this game!
4:42 am
puglet

a God to what group of people--if you know and dont go to any trouble finding out
4:42 am
sprite

the auto word is probably two words
4:42 am
ivesy3

good morning all
4:42 am
sprite

hi ivesy! So true. I keep telling pug she is such a quick study!
4:43 am
puglet

why thank you Ivesy---and hello
4:43 am
sprite

in Hinduism, pug
4:43 am
sprite

how are you today, ivesy?
4:43 am
puglet

thanks Sprite
4:44 am
ivesy3

sprite, being a diabetic i think you will understand when i say i am just not feeling right and i dont know what it is
4:44 am
sprite

hairy-nosed dolphin babblet and school babblet alert
4:44 am
ivesy3

i know i am not eating right, but i cant seem to get a handle on it and it makes me mad
4:44 am
sprite

I know what you mean, ivesy. Can you check your BSL?
4:44 am
puglet

Ivesy, could it be your new meds?
4:45 am
sprite

oh god, I know that feeling, yes. Almost like standing next to yourself and watching yourself do the wrong things, and not caring either way.
4:46 am
ivesy3

oh it def is the new meds pug. make me feel , for lack of a better word. fuzzy. it also kills appetite which is not good for a diabetic... so do i want headaches, or control over diabeties..
4:46 am
ivesy3

i think its def helping headaches.
4:47 am
sprite

that is awesome, ivesy. And give the new meds a little more time. Side effects are usually worst at the start. In a few months, see where you are standing then.
4:47 am
ivesy3

throw in trying to quit smoking and i am just one big mess lol
4:47 am
puglet

maybe you should tell your doctor Ivesy--not trying to boss or get into your buiness
4:47 am
sprite

lol ok... I am all for quitting smoking as it is unhealthy and filthy. But are you sure this is the right moment?
4:47 am
marigold

.
4:47 am
sprite

hello marigold
4:48 am
puglet

Sprites right,, it might just be too much all at once Ivesy
4:48 am
ivesy3

i dont think its the right time sprite.and pug. dont worry about being bossy you are just expressing an opinion..
4:48 am
puglet

Hi marigold
4:48 am
marigold

hi everyone
4:48 am
marigold

4:48 am
marigold

4:49 am
sprite

maybe you can make a deal with yourself, ivesy? Give yourself time to get used to the new meds, give your body a chance to settle. And then quit smoking. Perhaps at Lent?
4:49 am
ivesy3

i feel like one big bundle of nerves lol...but so happy the headaches have eased up
4:49 am
ivesy3

thats a good idea sprite.. oh pugs. i tried the ecigs.. i dont like them lol. awufl taste
4:49 am
sprite

too much stress is bad for the sugar levels too, grin. Maybe you need a smoke now and then at this moment.
4:50 am
puglet

like Sprite said things may become better as your body adjustes to the new meds
4:51 am
ivesy3

i know not eating right plays a big part...:( i am not a good diabetic..but at least the side effects from the shots have stopped.
4:51 am
sprite

perhaps allow yourself a set number of ciggies a day? That way you are preparing for quitting, you are already doing good things for your body and you can still handle the stress better.
4:51 am
sprite

that was a really bad sentence, I believe, but you get my drift
4:52 am
ivesy3

good idea sprite..exactly what dr. said.. not cold turkey as that will trigger headaches..permssion to smoke sir!!
4:52 am
puglet

do you have to take shots Ivesy( for your sugar)
4:52 am
sprite

good :) Should have become a doctor, lolol. Oh, did I tell you guys? My daughter seriously considers studying medicine.
4:53 am
ivesy3

yes pug, once a week.. relatively new med..side effects were awful..
4:53 am
ivesy3

aawesome sprite!
4:53 am
puglet

wow Sprite--that would be great
4:54 am
puglet

my sister takes 4 shots aday
4:54 am
sprite

she is incredibly smart, so that part will work out. But it is also a very long and hard study with lots of pressure and competition... I am a little worried she will suffer.
4:54 am
sprite

wow pug, that is a lot
4:54 am
ivesy3

omg pug... is she type 1
4:55 am
puglet

no, I think shes type 2
4:55 am
ivesy3

it is a very hard disease to control.. and takes a lot of discipline.. which i dont have lol
4:56 am
sprite

pugs is telling me to eat more regularly too, ivesy... I am not so good at that either.
4:56 am
puglet

she wouldnt either Ivesy if I didnt help her
4:56 am
ivesy3

so pug. its 9 degrees here today
4:57 am
puglet

its improtant Sprite and have a set time---my sister's doctor says live with a army schedule
4:58 am
sprite

oh god, pug, and we are such a relaxed family in that respect... we have meals at all times, depending on the schedule of the children
4:58 am
puglet

Iam not sure of the temps here but its cold and we are to have 1-3 iches of more snow today--and then we break the record of having the most snow ever
4:58 am
sprite

pfew, not a record you wanted to break
4:58 am
ivesy3

yes pug, i take my shot the same time, same day once a week..and have to set up the new med the same way.
4:59 am
ivesy3

If you do start lending consider it a gift that you'll never get back.

7:10 am

or as Maggie says, think of it as a gift and never assume it will be returned
7:11 am
MimiCat

I already did...have sent several hundred over the past 6 months. The thing is, we are having a falling out and I'm not really speaking with her except to be cordial and she sent me an em asking for $150 in a tone that just assumed I would send it. I just told her "Sorry, I don't have it right now" which is actually true since I won't get paid until Tues.

sand coming out of your hot water taps??
8:00 am
Trifioso

yup. according to what I have googled, I need to bleed the water heater.
8:00 am
crosshair

obv you have a sandpoint well and the mesh filter is rotted through and it is drawing up sand into your water system
8:00 am
Trifioso

ONce I am able to discern which of the scary mechanical looking things in my terrifying crawl space is the water heater, I will give it a go
8:01 am
crosshair

make sure you turn off the power before you drain the hot water tank or you will burn out the elements
8:01 am
Trifioso

I just got a new well put in about 7 months ago, so I am rather hoping thats not it
8:01 am
Trifioso

okay, thanks!
8:01 am
crosshair

is it a sandpoint well?
8:02 am
Trifioso

I have no idea.
8:02 am
Trifioso

I am so useless at this stuff. Its a miracle the place is still standing, frankly
8:02 am
crosshair

it sounds like it, and if it is only 7 months old,they buggered up the installation
8:02 am
Trifioso

I know NAUGHT about infrastructure of a home
8:03 am
crosshair

call them(they who did the installation) it is less than a year
8:03 am
Trifioso

im thinking at best I will have to wait until spring.
8:03 am
crosshair

because draining the tank is temporary. will not fix the underlying issue
8:03 am
Trifioso

in as much as the ground is frozen solid, and the well is under two feet of icy snow
8:04 am
crosshair

but report it now
8:04 am

People can get in trouble when they start supplying "friends" with money.
1:58 pm
MimiCat

You're right, sam...she helped me in a minimal way last year with small bills so I did feel I owed her...but this is too much and I'm done. When she asked for more today, luckily I honestly didn't have it to give but when I told her I didn't have it, she responded in an em with, in caps..I NEVER SAID THAT TO YOU.

More money molly...
2:07 pm

was it wildcat that collected for Jellen? I dont remember that
2:07 pm
rururocks

Maybe Tim s death made it go through
2:07 pm
MollyL

Wow, I never considered it was the amount of money donated that made the difference.
2:08 pm
Riverdance

for some reason I dont remember that being wildcat
2:08 pm
rururocks

Significant money
2:08 pm
MollyL

It was Wildcat that collected for Jellen. She made mention of that when she started the next donation drive. And Jellen chimed in and said that she got the money when the scam was mentioned.
2:08 pm
sammysmom

well, if any of you have a few bucks that ain't nailed down,. i am acccepting donations to the sammy fund heh heh
2:09 pm

it was alot of money I remember
2:09 pm
Riverdance

I dont remember who....just remember paypal.....
2:09 pm
rururocks

Lol Sammy
2:10 pm
MollyL

I think the difference in the two was, all money donated to Jellen went through PayPal. Which goes directly to the recipient. People sent checks the next time. That is the money in question.
2:11 pm
rururocks

Maybe
2:12 pm

2:12 pm
MollyL

I only know what I read here Ru. And what I read was that the money donated through PayPal was received, but the money sent via checks directly to Wildcat was not.
2:13 pm
Riverdance

I dont do checks anymore.....only pay online and if I cant do that you dont get paid....hehehe!
2:15 pm
MollyL

You can send money to someone in another country via Western Union and some other money transfer places. That is the safest way to do it.

Oh of course, it's gospel. *Blesses self*

Peri, having the cookie was okay and shoveling is strenuous exercise. Which is why people with heart conditions are cautioned not to do it.

bichon, bats use sound, not radio. other than that, the clue works. sort of....
2:49 pm
sammysmom

two minute4s later , there were 7, vehicles in front of the house next dfoor adn cops all over the place, city cops county sherrif and plain cars that we find were fbi and postal inspectors.... walter went intl ourdriveway with his coffee to see what the hell was going on ... they asked him if anyone was home next door and he saide i dlnt think so since noone licves there... they approached the house with guns drawn and knocked once, then used a battering ram adn broke down the front door
2:51 pm
sammysmom

after searching the place and hanging around for an hour they left.. they did close the door though and we got no explanation except their id s.
2:51 pm
sammysmom

they left a card with a number for us to call if anylne came back to the house
2:52 pm
sammysmom

which they did later on that evening
2:53 pm
sammysmom

i called the police station and walter called the postal guy who did not answer his phone.. the police NEVER came
2:54 pm

TY Brandyjack. I was spelling the second half of the clue with a c

The police were probably told not to interfere with a federal investigation. Creepy stuff SMom.

2:54 pm

i called to speak to a detective that i have talked to before the operator put me on a loop line with all the detective phones and there was noone there.

i called the chief of police,, he was not there
2:54 pm
brandyjack

i was trying to put the da in twice.... never thought of the c trick....
2:55 pm
bichon

Geez, weird things like that never happen to us. The excitement last night was that the water main broke and we had to fill up the bathtub
2:55 pm
bichon

If the second half of the clue was not speeled with a c it would mean something totally different
2:55 pm
sammysmom

i asked to talk to whow was in charge and he told me that the detectives do not work on the weekends , only monday thru friday 8 am to 4 and 4 to midnight only
2:57 pm
brandyjack

you're right. I didn't clue into that. i guess this is where two wrongs DO make a right....
2:57 pm

it seems that our police protection is damned near nil adn we pay more taxes than the posh communities east of us.

the sad thing is we picked this community 40 years ago to raise our 4 kids because of the school system and the very low crime rate and the tax base and several other factors......... and things have changed so dramatically.. none of our kids will live here they all have moved to other burbs.. we feel like we are hanging naked in the wind and THAT , nmy friends, is a lonesome scary feeling

sammysmom, if this makes you feel better (probably not), it sounds like the investigation isn't over yet. so why would they tell anyone what they are doing? for all they know you have your neighbors on speed dial and can let them know everything the police tell you
3:08 pm
Nef

Smom, is your neighborhood dangerous, or do you just feel that way since this happened?
3:09 pm

it is in deed... i am going to go and sit with my men for a while.. being together seems to ease our minds a little

Really puzzled by references to Irish dilapidated house????
4:17 pm

In the US, Irish people from poor town were referred to as sh**** Irish. Their houses were referred to as sh******. The word actually means sea song.

Probably an ignorant term used to refer to people of the sea. Lots of Irish prejudice here when the Irish first immigrated.

It seems as though as soon as I get every piece of dirty laundry done, my DH throws something else down the clothes chute- it's like he thinks it's his duty in life

Ahh. Soodle, another of those never-ending story tasks. My husband does the shopping but since he has a cell phone it is as if I am also in the store making selections. (Not my idea of a really good time.)

No one has ever been allowed to put clothes in the hamper in my house unless they have been worn all day. Part of the day? Hang it back up. Unless you got gross and sweaty in it.
5:23 pm
cosdem

Same here Molly. If like today I put on a shirt to run to Target, get home. hang shirt back up. no need to wash it it worn a hour or 2
5:23 pm
Nef

Oh, I know, stidg. I'm not too fussy and will use towels and washcloths and even some pants more than 1 time; but it's the fact that I specifically ask him if he has any more dirty clothes and he says NO and then 2 hours later (after I've put in the last load) he throws down something....
5:24 pm
stidgmere

Good rules Molly, I'm ready to do a little crossstitch with modern rules for Babblers.
5:24 pm
MollyL

Oh Gran Mere, it defeats the whole purpose of someone doing the grocery shopping for you if they have to call you 8 times while they are doing it.
: (
5:25 pm
stidgmere

That's what I think, too Molly. Hang up the cell phone sweetie.
5:25 pm

Thats why I don't let Ryan do the grocery. He always texts and asks this or that? Ugh

5:31 pm

When we were kids, we had 2 sets of clothes for the week: one set for school, and when we got home from school we put on the everyday clothes for the rest of the day. But we also wore bib-like aprons at mealtime and never got food on either set of clothes (and I'm not the only one who spills on our shirts here)
5:31 pm
MollyL

As the person who does the grocery shopping, I am constantly dodging the lost looking individuals who are on their phones saying "Hey, do we need Cap'n Crunch? Okay, Crunch Berries or regular?"
5:32 pm
stidgmere

Yes, Molly. Too many choices about things that don't need the variety.
5:34 pm
Nef

I hate any kind of shopping. If I go; I get in and out of the grocery store as fast as possible: I have a list, use coupons if they are cheaper, and will buy extras only if I know we need them and the price is better than usual. DH will always take 2-3 hours; but if the 2 of us go together; it's about 3- 3 1/2 hrs and the bill is humungous!
5:34 pm
jaxx7

My husband had five brothers and a mother who didn't have time to run after him. As a result he now does all the housework except the ironing and we go shopping together at the weekend. We have never had mobile phones so we don't have that problem. We write notes and talk to each other. Not bad after 44 years together.
5:36 pm
Soodle

I neither take nor make calls whilst grocery shopping. I know what the weekly requirements are & I know whats running low. As I'm the one who is paying, the buck stops with me!

It turns out that the floods in Surrey were caused by the flood defences built to prevent the homes of millionaires from flooding. They did but the water had to go somewhere so it flowed down the valley and inundated those who aren't millionaires.

jaxx, I've seen some really bad pictures of those floods. I feel bad for the people there. I've lived in both Fargo North Dakota and Grand Forks, ND, and know how awful those floods can get. (That area used to flood 8 out of 10 years because the Red River of the North ran north into Canada and when the mouth of the river is frozen, the water has no where to go but out
5:56 pm
jaxx7

They pay their CE more per year than our Prime Minister earns for running the country - if you can call it running. I think we should stop supporting Oxfam and get the money to Somerset and Surrey instead.
5:58 pm
Lizlin

They should actually start a flood relief appeal on UK TV. They do this in Aus - with outlets at banks and supermarkets, so everyone who can contribute, does.
6:00 pm
Nef

I saw that a couple of those areas have flooded a bit in the past; but nothing like this before, right?
6:00 pm
MollyL

Does the UK have anything like The Red Cross, in terms of national disaster?
6:01 pm
jaxx7

One of the newspapers here has started a petition so the money (Β£11 billion) spent on overseas relief to countries like China and India who spend it on journeys into space and bombs, should be diverted to the people affected in this country. The government has so far refused to do this.
6:02 pm
Nef

I bet that won't happen (it doesn't happen here, anyway)
6:04 pm
jaxx7

As far as I know the Red Cross has been singularly silent on the subject. Ironically the RSPB had persuaded the Environment agency to remove sea defences in Somerset so they could see whether the land could be made fit for wading birds etc. They have the waders but not the ones they expected.
6:05 pm
MollyL

No, I was wondering if the UK funds it's own disaster relief organization.
6:07 pm
jaxx7

They have flooded in the past but the problem has been compounded by idiots like the RSPB and the last Labour Government which allowed building on flood plains. The water has nowhere to go. It cannot soak into concrete and the trees that would have soaked up some of the water have been cut down.
6:07 pm
Nef

what's the RSPB? In Grand Forks, after the terrible floods and then fire back in 1997, the states (ND and MN and the feds all condemned the homes near the river and they built levis there now
6:08 pm
MollyL

Royal Society For The Protection Of Birds
6:08 pm
Nef

levees not levis
6:08 pm
jaxx7

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, most of whom are bird brains themselves.
6:09 pm
MollyL

That's okay Nef. We didn't think you meant they built jeans. : D
6:09 pm
jaxx7

I rather suspect that Levis wouldn't help in flooded areas.
6:10 pm
Nef

Sounds like they need a Royal Society for the Protection of homes, jaxx
6:10 pm
MollyL

I agree Nef.
6:11 pm
Nef

Levis might help --if filled with sand and used as sandbag dikes! ;-)
6:11 pm

jaxx7

Talking of sand bags there are a group of rotters going around selling sand bags to the elderly and saying they will deliver them tomorrow but don't.
6:14 pm
Nef

usually we start hearing about March what the projected flooding of the Red River Valley (of the north) and then they start sending out calls for "X" number of sandbags needed to protect both Fargo/Moorhead and Grand Forks/East Grand Forks. Because this happens so often up here, lots of people even here in the Twin Cities (200-300 miles away) will go and help fill sandbags.
6:15 pm

A heroic effort was made to save Grand Forks ...

Filling sandbags is not an unknown activity
6:16 pm

The folk in Somerset have been forced to sit on their sandbags to prevent other victims from pinching them. The army is out in the Thames valley now doing their bit but it is too late for the people of Somerset.
