Glad the coconut drink substitute is working out. They have stuff called almond milk here. You can supplement the loss of calcium with tablets and the vitamin D with sunshine (although sometimes on strict ration this time of year - Aussies excluded). Some currently singing the praises of coconut water these days. Wouldn't know anything about that meeself - don't do fads.

you're doing that just for the halibut aren't you Bluey. Move along please otherwise I'll salmon the Frying Squid.

Beautiful start to the day here, slight wind but on the terrace 20 C.

Power washer went TU. Dealer wants more to repair it than it would cost to replace it so will take it to bits again myself, probably a 5 euro valve stuck.

Keyboard is doing funny things, seems to have changed from a QWERTY to something else, alt keys are all different

That's odd I had to log in. It usually happens automatically.

Got guys in putting up a 100m fence around what will be a fruit and veg area. It was contained by a bush fence but we couldn't keep the goats out and the cattle kept breaking in. This will fix them.

Very dull morning to you.

Had banana custard for breakfast and have just nicked one of the trouble's bangers for elevenses.

I think with quite a few sites, every so often the cookie says 'make the lazy bugger sign in to check he's not died'. Or something like that.

It can be a real pain when you're forgotten the password and this is why I break all the rules by having virtually the same one for each chat site I use. I figure that if someone cracked my passwords and started sending you all begging letters I know that you would tell them/me to sod off!

Woody42, glad the trouble has got the thumbs up for a while.

You should have just told them to moove along.

Had some violent weather here last night. We must be out of cats and dogs by now. Our cats, however still making their displeasure felt as they were kept in. Even our porch, where they normally kip, got drenched last night. They were freed just now, after eating of course, and nearly took the dog door off its hinges.

Glad to hear MaWoody is doing well

Ibbie-copying someone's sim card seems a bit hooky to me. And I blame you for all this rotten weather we are all having. You had to go and aggravate Bluey. Bad Ibbie

Bright, sunny day up here. A bit fresh but weather good for the ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of the sinking of HMS Royal Oak

Looks a bit more like Edward to me.

All that water flooded the Lower Luton Road so badly they closed it this morning. Had to divert through the back streets of Harpenden and was stuck in a traffic jam trying to exit onto the main road. Didn't arrive at work until 8:25. One and a half hours to drive 14 miles! Traffic the other way was backed up all the way from Harpenden to Junction 10A at Luton and moving at walking speed. We just can't cope with weather in England. No wonder its our main topic of conversation.
