El, still having a nightmare of a time with my computer. Running to each window around 30 minutes at a time. So Logged into my ownership name and it seems to be at top speed. Cant explain it at all. I am glad you liked the card. Happy FRYday!!!! Grace, did my card finally arrive to you as well? This version does not even have left and right arrows, I have to keep clicking on Offbeat to get back to the menu. I need to get it fixed as soon as possible, I need to read the updated version.
The joys of modern technology!
Happy new year Vee :-)

Pickled herring on New Year's Eve for health in the new year (I think - always hated the herring....yuck!) and red cabbage on New Year's Day for prosperity (love red cabbage anyway).
good luck herring ... yuck too! Ex-wife's family being Lutheran always had herring-their-way for New Years. I just couldn't acquire the taste for it.

Try anchovies. Great on a good pizza with lots of fennel.

Maybe my mom got the idea handed down from my grandma--she was a German Lutheran. My sister and I hated it!

Morning All...
Spent yesterday in wellies as the back was flooded...had to laugh at one point, the 'kitten'
forgot about the water outside the kitchen door, flew out of the kitchen in her normal manner,
straight into the water! Like something out of
a cartoon.(wrapped her in a warm towel afterwards, but her pride was hurt) hahaha
It has receded now thankfully.
One more weekend and then it will be close to a brand New Year.
Any resolutions anybody?
I have decided to get myself back into shape again .. get back to my premarital weight LOL!!!!!

This is the wettest December on record - if there's a problem it's climate change rather than global warming, which will bring wetter weather with it. Scientists agree it is happening, but whether mankind is to blame for it, or merely climate trend (back in the 1750s, the Thames froze over every year: it stopped long before the mass use of fossil fuels) is what they differ on. Whether it is us or not, doubt very much that the emerging nations of China and India have any interest in slowing their progress to halt it, nor that any of us will give up our way of life to effect less carbon gases.
I wonder what it will take to get people to change ... I suppose when there is no ice cap at all over Greenland and a minimal cap over Antarctica, no ore sking in the ALps, tornados daily in most of the world, and the ocean levels are such that Manhatten needs a 30 foot high dam surrounding it ... maybe then they will realize something is amiss ....

But, if could well be a normal cycle .. geologists do believe that ocean levels have previously been higher than currently by about 20 to 30 feet.

<quoted text>Now climate change is something I believe in :) It has been both hotter and colder and is part of nature. How vain we are to think we can control the climate :)
Is there a difference between CONTROl and INFLUENCE the climate?

I do believe that a major change in atmospheric conditions can affect the climate.

I beg to differ ... apparently those teens who are "cutters" do so to let themselves know they are alive ...

I preffer normal sensations or pleasurable ones such as a nice massage or enjoying a nice meal to remind me I'm alive
