How's your day?

The problem is the fitted wardrobe is not allowing enough air to circulate.

 Insulated board may solve it but there is no guarantee, treat it with a good quality anti-mould paint

Hold your hand on the top of her head, and hopefully, both of you will be still.

@radfordred  I never thought of plants committing suicide .....  I think if you you don't transplant them properly then they will go in 'shock' and take some time to recover (or even die off) , but committing suicide implies a consciousness and ability to make decisions which I don't reckon plants have.   I think they are more like a simple animal like a stick insect,  just responding to outside influences.

Who knows?   This is getting a bit deep for 'How's your day' isn't it!

I've had a busy morning with our Toddler Group, so I could do with a bit of care and attention, too... or perhaps I'll just have a nap!

Rog, I've just read a few reviews/overview of the book and it's not really the kind of stuff I'm interested in, but thank you for thinking of it for me

Getting used to looking after myself - Mrs PP in Tenerife sunning herself :tanning: 

Diligently feeding the cats - they are all over me, smarmy little boggers. Cooking OK with micro and ceramic hob. can't be trusted with naked flames. My pal showed me how to start the dish washer to wash what was left in it. Wash up as I use now, but only one of each, plate, mug, knife, fork, teaspoon, table spoon, dish, saucepan and three glasses in use. Makes me wonder why we need cupboards and drawers full of cutlery, utensils and crockery?

I went to do a bit of shopping at Tesco in Ely this morning.   I had to go in on the bus as Paul was at a meeting and needed the car, which is fine as our buses run every hour.   As soon as I got into the supermarket, the lights went out for about half a minute, then came on again, so I continued walking round.  They went off again about half an hour later and then came on again (people seemed to think the high wind was somehow causing it).  The checkouts were still working at this point but the cafe was closed as all the machines had stopped working, so I couldn't have a hot chocolate.  I just sat down in the cafe for ten minutes as it was a bit early for my bus home then, as I left, some of the doors were closed and security staff  were stopping people coming in.  There were a lot of disgruntled people waiting outside!  

I'm  so pleased I got in before the power failure or I'd have had a wasted journey and a long wait outside for the bus home.  It's very cold and windy even now.

I expect lots of people would have driven over  to Sainsbury's, Aldi or Waitrose instead of waiting outside Tesco... but people who had arrived by bus would have had a longish walk with their walking sticks and shopping trolleys as it's well over half a mile to another supermarket.  They'd then probably miss  their bus home!

Margie,In one chapter of the book two plants were experimented with,they were in seperate pots, one plant was treated cruelly and the other plant responded, strange stuff going on in the plant world that we haven't got a clue about

This is where I don’t understand the self righteous attitudes of some vegans and vegetarians. Plants too are living organisms and they are ‘killed’ to be eaten. We are omnivores by evolution and I see no problem in eating meat. If people choose a wholly vegetarian diet I’m fine with that. My wife bought a Greggs vegan sausage roll for me and to be honest it was quite tasty; it just needed something to harden up the texture. Most veggie products that ‘pretend’ to be a meat equivalent I find unpalatable.

Phil, I think that it's only animals that are  considered 'sentient' (their words) that vegetarians object to eating, although fish are often included as well, aren't they... Is a fish sentient - capable of feeling or perception?    I wonder if a vegetarian would eat insects (which is what I heard we will all be eating soon to boost our protein intake!)

I presume that plants aren't considered sentient by vegetarians.... as I expect they mow their lawns, pick flowers, pull up weeds (screaming?) and prune their roses?   But as you say, each person has a right to their own opinion on these matters.  I suppose it's a sliding scale..

Each to their own I suppose. Our daughter is a veggie. She used to eat meat but stopped when we kept a few sheep. I love vegetables, especially salads. It's veggie foods that pretend to be meat that I don't like - apart from Quorn sausage rolls!

A short video from one of my favourite sites. Do plants feel things? This guy says that not only do they feel but one of them can count!

What folk choose to eat is entirely their concern. I know a number of vegetarians and a vegan and none of them have ever presumed to comment on my diet. Just as I wouldn't presume to call their values and beliefs 'self-righteous'.

My daughter-in-law has been Vegan for a couple of years, plus she hasn’t drunk cow’s milk for several years.  It’s difficult to have a reasoned discussion with her about her chosen diet, plus she’s from Czech Republic and is a bit ‘in yer face’ with her ideas, for instance she refuses to get the child vaccinated.  She’s a yoga teacher and in fantastic shape but what I don’t and will never agree with is that she’s bringing our granddaughter up as Vegan.  The little one is nearly 6 and quite tiny compared to her contemporaries.  I just hope she’s getting the protein needed to grow big and strong.   Difficult as it is for me, I won’t get involved, I know there’s no mileage in that ;)

Is there such a thing as "Grandparents rights" Lizzie, or somewhere you could voice your concerns, just don't sound right to me,little ones need all the protein they can get when they are growing

Well, this vegetarian won't!!  However, the moggies are fond of bluebottles and spiders...which aren't insects. I'm told they taste like prawns?

I'm not about to check that out.  I draw the line there other than checking out a bit of dog biscuit.  They smell good, taste bland. :biggrin:

I believe doggies have low tolerance for salt, which may explain the 'blandness'.

Pleasant surprise today...  Someone on another forum advised me to change some of the 'moves' I do when weight training.  It is already producing results.   I was very poor at proper press ups and struggled to get from 'chin on the carpet' to a full press.  After a week or so of changes, mostly aimed at chest and triceps, I can now do a set of ten press ups minimum..in fact usually three sets.  Real progress.  He also said to 'keep muscle tension all the time' when doing bicep curls.  So, not relaxing at bottom or top of the move.   That's already showing progress too and got me 'upping' the weight.

 

Watch out you Mexican Laydees!!  ;)
