I will check it out thank you. When you recommended the movie, I didn't know if Jack was a real person or character so I googled. Looks interesting. ;)
All us Jack Reacher fans couldn't believe Tom Cruise was playing the part. Reacher is 6'5" and about 240 pounds. If you see the movie you will want to read all the books :)

Good morning/afternoon to all!
Lady El, did you know that our beloved pets can develop diabetes!? Drinking or hovering over the water bowl is a clue. You may want to check on the web. Hope all is well with your pet.
Peace.
Never ocurred to me that it could be diabetes Boomer...am grateful
to you for mentioning it as I found a very helpful site which
advises on diet and the fact that it is treatable, not jumping
the gun here (pun!) but I will give her less carbs although she
does have quite a lot of protein already so no huge changes in
diet..
The Vet is very good and no doubt will do a blood test tomorrow...
Thanks for your concern..:)

I read one of the Reacher series some years ago. Right on! I pictured him as a stone jawed NFL lineman. Cruise is too short and really doesn't have the machismo like wrestlers turned actors.

Thank you Brighteyes...she is a little semi-feral who was
abandoned by her mother under our garden shed, oh, 10 years or so
ago...she is a house cat now..tiny little thing. Diagnosis is half
the battle, so we will take one step at a time. The Vet has all
the patience in the world, helps to have a good Vet.

Has she lost weight? Overly lethargic? I understand the same symptoms if diabetes in human are also for felines. Going out all the time or to her box?
I think like people sometimes they just feel like drinking a lot......or in the case of my older dog, not eating breakfast all the time.
She has...looks healthy but light as a feather and very lethargic.
Not going to her box often...nor drinking much, just hovering.....
She is always ready for her food, hearty appetite.
Worrying when your older dog refuses his food...

Hi Denny...I watched The Graham Norton Show last night, always good for a laugh, it certainly was last night as Billy Crystal was on, plus
our own John Bishop, Liverpudlian comedian, and an Australian actor
who name escapes me...anyway that aside, Tom Cruise was a guest as was
his co-star in Jack Reacher...have to say Tom Cruise came over really well, bit of a nerd at times, but very pelasant and charming...AND..
does all his own stunts...
Had planned on going to see Jack Reacher today..but things cropped up.. next week hopefully.

Pretty much the same in Rome and in Spain generally.
This one was in our garden though and so I felt partially
responsible....

Hi Everyone,
I'm back,
had a wonderful post Christmas holiday..
Every day was special and wonderful and
evoking that Christmas feeling, from
traveling that part of FRANCE, observing the vineyards
and wine tasting ... to sumptuous meals and
massive log fires,
but I won't go on, as, hearing every detail about another's vacation can be boring..

Hope everyone's well.. and I DID *especially* come by
on New Year's eve to sincerely wish everyone here a
Happy New Year..

Who knows what's in front of each one,
and, as well we don't! but, having said that,
we, each must make the best of what 2013 holds
in it's heart for us all..

I always have cats in my yard. My wife puts out food and cats love to live in my boat. One time we had a feral cat that had kittens. It was very cold so I rigged a light in a box to keep them warm. The next morning there was a cat and kittens and a baby possum all cuddled together :)

How R you?' Been thinking of you and Mrs Fish and the clan. Mele Kalikimaka and happy new year to you. I forgot if you're native or an halo.
Is the weather behaving? We've had quite the mild winter here. Work is going well and the holidays were busy. Played it low key today.
Be well and stay well! Glad ya came and found me :-)
(hi El, and thanks for letting us talk in your kitchen)
Things are OK lately, it's a long story.
It stormed last night, strong wind and lots of rain. The rain was good, it hasn't rained hardly at all for a LONG time, the plants needed it.
The Mrs and I are from Oregon and are of many mixed European backgrounds. I have French, German, English and others, and some native American, my dad was born on a reservation.'halo' is spelled 'haole'-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haole
Yep, could be called that. I'd say I fit in more with the locals than the new haoles though. Left the mainland in '83. Haole is a derogatory term, and nobody calls me that to my face, lol.
I have a German heritage story... My Grandma (on one side- obviously) had a maiden name of Blank, which was said to be a shortened form of Von Blanc (sp?). So a long time ago, I was talking to a German girl and told her I am part German and my Grandma's maiden name was Von Blanc, and she said that's not German! That it's from a small country next to Germany, as I remember. So, I don't know much really.

EL,

I like Graham Norton,

He is Irish you know, I suppose,
he is SO good at what he does..

Glad you got over CHRISTMAS ok...

Me too but I was dead tired,
I REALLY feel age is rapidly catching up
on me, really, I do!
can't hack it as before! really.

My sons were *nothing* short of superb.. wouldn't
let me wash a cup, sent me to bed the day
we arrived, as I was washed out tired from a
very early flight.. they had a beautiful dinner laid
on when I got up later..
attended my every need.

there was simply tangible love circling between us..

but..

enough of that.

you mentioned

'Mrs Browne's Boys'
lol

it's a scream, I agree,
and .. loke you say

there IS more to him than that.

I remember a live radio show..
a woman crying, stating that her child
must have unusual urgent medical
treatment that would cost 5grand..it
was completely out of range of
'her' finances..
before the programme ended, Brendan> "Mrs Browne'
rang in to cover the cost entirely..
saying he wasn't looking for praise for doing it..
but that ONCE he had been
where she was, financially speaking!

Nice thought..
