Hey, you weren’t effected by the chemical haze down there were you, I do hope not
No, fortunately that was further along the coast. Fortunate for me that is, not for all those affected by it. Peculiar event, I hope the authorities can track down what happened… As you can probably imagine it’s all over the local news around here, just glad so far that no-one was seriously hurt by it.
Yes thank goodness for that and so glad you’re not effected either. I do hope they’re able to figure it out, before imaginations start to run riot
Too late for that! All speculation so far, but it’s been blamed on French industry blowing across (apparently not, wind conditions weren’t right for that), someone having a fire on the beach, and I think the latest theory was that it must have been somehow released from a boat in the Channel…
I suppose anything is possible but to be honest I’m doubting they’ll ever get to the bottom of it.
Glad I’m on this side of the pond!
While sitting here nodding, I just realized I ate two packages of Pizzelle (Italian waffle cookies)! Usually we have anisette or vanilla, but this time my bride bought dark chocolate. At 25 calories per cookie, and 9 cookies per pouch, I just consumed 450 calories. If one burns 90 calories while sleeping, how much more can I burn if I snore - loudly?
Can I be the first to say we will be happy to not hear your snore!
Wonder if we’ll earn a good 50…
With a paddy cake in tow
Look at our Big Heart !
Only thing is… I don’t snore. Just ask my wife. Oh wait… don’t ask her. She wakes herself up with her snoring and tries to tell me I woke her up with my snoring. I wonder how many calories I can burn by holding my hands to my ears and pressing. Never mind, I’ll just crash on the couch. That way the dogs can wake me up when they have to go outside. And as an added bonus - which also burns calories - I would have to run up the stairs if one of the girls wake up (so as to not wake the baby). Or, I can do what I’ve always done in the past - don’t worry about the calories. I’m only 27 lbs/12kg more than I was when I was 18. Not too bad for 64! But I do wish the weight hadn’t shifted around so much!
Ooh, they look good think I’ll be nipping to Aldi sometime in the near future…if I can just get this painting finished today, that’ll be my reward. I’ll have burnt off enough calories to justify a packet
The good thing about aniseed and cinnamon is the kids don’t like them, they prefer ginger, all the more for me then. Just need to keep them out of hubby’s way 'cos he’ll just eat anything I swear that guy’s got no taste buds
Reminds me of the TV commercial (USA) for a cereal. Two sisters are debating whether or not to try a new cereal. One says to the other, “Let’s let Mikey try it. He likes everything!” (Your hubby’s name isn’t by chance “Mikey” is it?
No, he’s an Ian
We have very similar tastes, so if I cook something and we don’t like it, he’s not afraid to tell me (and visa versa), but we’ll eat it anyway so as not to waste it But there has been the odd occasion when I’ve just had to bin it and he’s gone right on and finished it anyway “It fills a hole doesn’t it” he’ll say
I always eat slowly - first one to start and the last to finish. Whenever anyone asks me where I put it, I tell them, “I have hollow legs!”
Yes, that my hubby too, and so is his mum
Wow! Forty-three minutes without a like or a reply! Since Em’s last reply to me, I was outside with the girls - they were making “potions” - went to the Post Office, returned and separated our mail from our son’s and DIL’s, fixed the 3-yr.'s skirt (she had it on backwards ), grabbed a cup of coffee and sat down at the laptop (expecting to see several likes and replies on my icon. Nothing! Nada! Guess everyone is busy looking at snow and ice.
As an aside: I just heard on the radio that the price of gasoline (petrol for those across the pond) will be going up from 10 to 25 cents per gallon, depending upon where one lives in the country. The northeast is expected to rise about 10 cents. Of course the price of anti-freeze will probably shoot up even higher (it always does).
Here’s a random tip…never paint walls with a radiator roller
I thought the 2 walls that my son did were done (well, one and a bit as one has windows and radiator). Now looking at it I see the one whole wall is all patchy and I’ve just enough paint to do the half that won’t be hidden by the wardrobes
Guess I’ll be painting late into the night to get the woodwork done
Sorry Jim, I’ve just run out of “likes” for a few hours…
After looking back to Sept., 2016’s “Space-X rocket explosion today” topic, I noticed “… insect close to the camera…” as a possible item for the check list on what they were seeing “near” the rocket. That reminded me of the “rods” that appeared in some old photographs from the first satellite launches. Even the FBI was in on the investigation to determine what was “zooming past” so fast they were unable to make out what it was. That was back in the days of photography (still and motion) when cameras were just not as fast as they are today. Through the use of high-speed photography, the “rods” were determined to be moths! The standard 30-fps cameras would pick up the moth’s body as a rod and its wings as a “curled ribbon” of sorts. The high-speed cameras showed the moth in its splendid motion of flying - thus dispelling all notions of it being something from out of this world, something inter-dimensional, spiritual, etc…
Oh, and I only posted this to give some certain people one more thing to like before the end of their day.
That remind though of last weekend at the end of the family sports day, sitting round the fire pit that night I raised my camera to take a pic and through the lense I could see this beautiful blue wavy light up in the right corner of the camera’s screen (almost like an apparition) hovering over my sister. But when I looked at the real life scene there was no blue wavy light there…it was actually the flickering light from the fire
