Well what a day, took SWMBO to the club at lunch time, bright sun and very little wind gave us the opportunity to sit outside and watch the world go by.

Good frost out here this morning,getting the trike out in a bit for a ride to the doctors for me tablets then a short-ish 15 mile ride the long way back home, if theres still some frost on the cycle/foot path when I get out I might be able to do a bit of "drifting" on the trike, whoopee

I'm having a couple of days off too. Car has gone in for service this morning and there's plenty to do getting the bathroom ready for work starting in 2 weeks' time. As per NBL's advice, I'm having a new Baxi boiler with filter and a completely new bathroom. I'll be glad when it's done cos the house is full of boxes of tiles!

Er, well yes, I occasionally purchase a small bag of dog biscuits and give it to people who sit begging, as their animals need looking after too. Also, it can't be spent on drink, drugs or fags .

Thanks Ben but I think you have to be Gas Safe registered! I'm sure you can find something useful to do with your loose end! From what you've told us, you wrote the book on it! smile2

Can't fault you fly,it's not the dogs fault and they need looking after as well but for genuine homeless I feel for them but,no one was born homeless on the streets of this great country of ours,earlier this year when my world was turned upside down I didn't know which way to turn and could have easily ended up homeless (at the time I didn't know what to do and who to ask and feared the worse) for me things turned out ok for which I'm grateful,

I know a lot of these "homeless" aren't genuine but some are, last week Mrs P bought a "homeless" person a cup of coffee and gave it to him,he said "I don't drink tea I prefere the money" I would have poured it away but Mrs P just said "it's coffee" and left it with him, I never give them money but a hot sausage roll and a cup of hot chocolate don't hurt ,it's on their conscience if they aren't genuine,

My mum was the sort of person who would help anyone. She had a kind of sixth sense which told her who was genuine and who wasn't. She was never wrong!

 

A little help is worth a deal of pity, she'd say but she also maintained that God helps those who help themselves! Woe betide anyone who took advantage!

 

She never failed to tell me every time I had a moan about something trivial: "Count your blessings!" As ever, she was right. I've got absolutely nothing to grouse about.

Like the middle sentence Jill. I ALWAYS maintain that life is what you make it. Dad always said 'You only get out of life what you put into it . So true ! I still try and adhere to that statement.

Yes Rog, glad things turned out fine for you. I have lived the ultimate highs, and suffered the most despairing of lows. All due to my own stupidity I might add, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Certainly no complaints.

Preached yesterday p.m.  I thought for a light opener I'd ask 'em how many had heard of Guy Fawkes.  How many had heard about Bonfire night.  I think about two hands went up.  So I told 'em they were a bunch of colonials and needed to learn their history.  :biggrin:   After all most of 'em came from England at some point.  So there is now a bunch of Georgians who know their history.  After all if GF had succeeded, America's history might have been different too.  We did get into the Bible eventually, but hopefully they learned summat.  ;).  We were never really taught much of the history underlying the event when we were in school.
