How's your day?

Recommended Posts

It must be cold as when I let my two dogs out first thing they were back in very quickly (and they are part husky), usually they are out sniffing around for a while. They are both laying on their beds near the radiator! No walk today then I am pleased to say.

I plucked up courage to take my greyhound out for his walk. He kept nagging me until I put my coat on and then pranced in excitement as I got his lead. Then he couldn't understand that I was stepping tentatively on the slippery pavement instead of walking briskly along. Must admit I turned round and came home as soon as he'd 'been'. He's lying in front of the radiator now.

Well I've 'been', and I'm back in bed after coffee and porridge. I'll hang on a bit longer before making a decision !  :sleeping:

Get that fence panel secured Margie !  Clearing now, as I can see the houses over the back garden.

Better make a move I suppose.

The fence panel is just leaning against the oil tank - it needs removing really!  Pleased your fog is lifting now

One of our cats has decided it's sunbathing weather - she's sitting on the garden table... can you see her shadow?   Told you it was sunny here!

All greyhounds must be the same regarding "prancing" Maisie does it every time, there is no chance of a walk here the bank is to steep in either direction. We have not seen a soul today and I am not surprised according to the forecast we can expect snow, but they have been wrong before. Take care everyone we ain't as young and nimble as we once we're.

Brrr, bit cowd in southern Missouri at 14F, still, that's balmy weather compared to places in the northern states. One place in Minnesota is at MINUS 49F which translates into MINUS 45C, cold by even Antarctica winter weather...

Perhaps the cats thought you'd opened up a hole in the hedge to invite them in?

Everywhere is forecast to get some degree of frost and fog today. So my sympathy goes out to those who have to drive, or to those who are intending flying, and are stuck in departure lounges. 

Lets hope it improves by tomorrow ! :tanning:

 

Well we've certainly had "some degree of frost and fog" today, in fact its never lifted and the trees have been white over all day.  The birds have been mobbing the feeders all day too. A pity its not still the RSPB bird count as I'm sure I've had more in today than the whole of last weekend!! I don't think improvement is on the cards for tomorrow, if the BBC is anything to go by it's going to get worse....not that we have had the snow they promised! :wacko:

Yes, Loppy. I agree. Mine is a multi fuel stove but the heat is much longer lasting than central heating, gas fires, etc. This morning is freezing cold, ice everywhere but just tipped a couple of logs and a bit of smokeless fuel onto Clara the Clearview, as she's known, and off we go from last night's slumbering warmth. Moggies love it. We'll soon be told we can't have em any more though. Bad for the environment or some such tripe!

Rubbish Jill theres nothing more natural than wood. If it is bad for the environment don't think anyone would have any wine from this area. At the beginning of winter when it starts to get cold. We go outside and all we can smell is wood burning. Not a nasty burnt smell but a sort of sweet smell. Sounds daft I know but its nice.

I heard yesterday. We are just getting rid of the last snowfall, still lots of ice around but tonight we are in for a real downfall ( so they say) . Schools are already closed so think I may have to cancel my physio again. Its amazing when the sun shines as it does most days although its freezing cold the dogs sit on the doorstep sunbathing and we keep the front door open and they come and go when they want. If the door is closed and we go towards it they think they're going out again.

Ok, apologies folks for being a bit slow/stupid, but not knowing how to start/ask a question i thought perhaps go to a popular post and try my luck. Simple question, why do members want to be anonymous?. When after they reply, we know who they are !!

If I told you my views on such behaviour Waddo, I'd be on for days. I've been moaning about it for years.

Yay Yay Hoorah. Happy Days are here again....Oh Boy have I had withdrawal symptoms, haven't known what to do wimisen today. I shut the lid down on my Laptop last night to watch summut on the tele for half an hour. I lifted the lid afterwards and it wouldn't come back on?, and that's how it stayed until a few minutes ago when no 1 son found a site on his Laptop. He typed in Acer and asked for advice..it was as follows.

Turn Laptop over.

You will see a tiny hole near the label.

Push in a paperclip about half an inch, until you feel it contact, and gently press..........Wallah. That's it. Job done.

Turn Laptop back over and on it came.

Can't believe it, as simple as that!

Carni is happy again. Missed you all.:)xxx

 

Sorry, can anyone work a miracle, and reduce this space please??????

 

 

 

GONE

I agree, nonna, but the environmentalists are gunning for stove owners. So many people have them now. I suppose it's summat else we'll either be taxed on or told we can't have! I'm certainly making good use of mine at present!

Re anonymity. Lizzie summed it up a few weeks ago. NPD. Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

It means a constant craving for recognition, arrogant, self centred, demanding and manipulative. That's just for starters !

Well it's a bit warmer here, low 30'sF Stove making a lot of nice comfortable heat.

Split a few logs to keep our wood stove running....

Talking of tree huggers, a couple of months back the EPA informed those in the "bush" of Alaska they will be fined heavily if they don't stop using wood as a source of heat..... Laughable, as it's their only source of heating in winter, how can they use anything else when they are cut off for a few months from civilization??

I know what the locals would do if the EPA tried their dirty tricks around here, they'd be sent packing with buckshot wounds to their rear ends....LOL
