  4. i *SEE* you

    home safe and all seems well.... and Sam Neill playing Odin, too. epic stuff. Mind you, i love the 'reprise' of the Hulk 'Puny god' scene....
  5. i *SEE* you

    our great spotted woodpeckers do that, usually right outside the bedroom windows of the volunteer accommodation at about 5.00 am! hate this weather... More damn snow And I have to drive north again tomorrow, cos we have geese at 5.00 am on Monday...hope the pipes are all intact when I turn the water back on Could be no fun.
  6. i *SEE* you

    Andy made it over ok after work, but going back around 90 minutes later was all ice and eedjits and antilock brakes and antiskid.... Quick change and not for the good. We (me and BelovedMuppet) are going nowhere unless it's improved... She has a bone density scan appointment on Friday, but if we can't get out safely they can whistle for it..turning up with a broken arm or such would be rather ironic!
  7. i *SEE* you

    home safe. Weird weather, bits where there was no snow at all, clouds, brilliant sunshine, and mini-blizzards (with lots of idiots driving with no lights on) and the occasional bit like this , which is a layby with a loo!
  8. i *SEE* you

    we are braced for snow, blizzards, ‘worst winter weather since 1963’ ... by which i am thinking they mean an inch of snow in Kent... there is a big nasty lump of cold heading west from Siberia though, which could bring some nasty stuff... starting tomorrow, just in time for me going south again. i DO get a bit of a head start on it, fortunately, (worst day is supposed to be Thursday) and with luck should get there in reasonable time. Poor paws.......
  9. The Daily Bugle

    sci-fi and fantasy with a brain. i’d recommend ‘the left hand of darkness’ simply for the way it makes you think.
  10. Happy birthday, Goli!

    i, too, am growing old disgracefully and intend to keep it that way.
