Thanks for your poems Grace ... yes, I did read the Frost one up the way earlier, too!
DW,

Thank you for this,

I find sometimes thinking on deeper things,
it's more easy to put thoughts into rhyme,
you can go deeper somehow! at least I feel: lol

Hope ....... AND wish you the VERY BEST there is..
as we ALL set sail from the pristine shores of 2013.

Caught half of it before I fell asleep on the sofa (paying for that now - wide awake so a brief burst on here and a large mug of tea). Was written by the same guy who writes Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes (who is a bona fides peer of the realm: Baron Fellowes of West Stafford). He won an Oscar for the sreenplay for Gosford Park. What I saw seemed pretty accurate historically - Victoria's mother was a scheming cow.
Um! thanks for that snippet & interesting Tony
to hear 'twas by the same person responsible
for the inimitable DOWNTON..
Yes, indeed it had that touch.. most certainly.

LOL

On another note,
I know the feeling of falling asleep BEFORE bed
at the risk of spoiling a whole night's sleep(:
think, we've ALL been 'there' lol

Hope you weren't too tired next day(:

Morning/afternoon to all!
Yes El we have two. My avatar is our "tuxedo cat" Panda. 3 years old, 38 inches long, a little more than a meter, and a whopping 12 pounds, 6 kilos; our other is a Maine Coon mix, Simba, is half the size and weight of Panda. Both were rescue cats.
Two is just nice. Panda is some cat at three feet in length, quite
a handful. We have a couple of heavy weights and in MillyMolly's
case, a lightweight, but she is only tiny. I am trying to get weight on her. Does Simba favour the Maine Coon's personality traits? Beautiful
natured cats.
Two of our youngest were thrown out of their 'home' on Christmas Eve,
three years ago, we thought they were rats when they ran in the kitchen
desperate for food. They are chubby little souls now, puddings on four legs, lol. I was too late aving the female spayed...Rosie Probert is her one kitten...she is a blue/cream tortie with orange eye colour, quite a distinctive little cat.

Wow El! I did not realize you fed them individually! Two are hard enough! But we love our animals, don't we?
Well yes, as they all have different dietary needs. Their
weights vary from 16 lbs to 5 lbs. I knew a lady once who
had two cats, one was big as a house, lol, as he was a fast
eater and ate his own, and his companions meal, the latter
was very skinny. Taught me a lesson. All this bunch have
their own little dish....:)

Look at a map and go 90 minutes east and or southeast and give us the closest town or city. Let us all review and pick the point.
This is like the Around the world Race!
LOL!:)
I was messing about with a map earlier just for the fun of it...and picked a place which is equally accessible to all.
Memphis Tennessee!

<quoted text>Good morning El. How are you doing this fine day. I have been sick for over a week and it is muddy out so the tile floors are a mess. I have company coming tomorrow so I have to mop and I just don't feel like doing it but it must be done :(
LOL Denny! You know that whatever we feel like discussing here
still goes...always has, always will.
We can't always be right, but there are enough of us to put the
other right, and still remain friends.
We can only discuss the weather and pets for so long, right?
Enjoy your company Darlin'...and good luck doing the tile floors!....:)

DENNY CRAINE:
Firstly,
Sorry to hear you are feeling LOW...
To *ell with the tiled floors..
just put YOU first & explain to your guests
that you are not feeling the best -
make NO apologies for putting YOURSELF first..
I'm sure your friends have ALWAYS valued YOU more highly
than any floors or how clean they might appear.

Best of luck & health
and I mean that.

Good story. Did you do much acting?
I'm hesitant to say too much on Topix, but guess I'll take a risk. Since I'm talking about me,(I am actually the center of the universe- BTW - but my wife won't buy it), my grandma on the other side had 'Young' for a maiden name, so you and me might be related? She was a good Catholic. She was also very musical, so I think I might be related to Angus Young of ACDC. I know, he is an Australian, but, aren't all the Caucasian Australians descendents of convicts from the UK? LOL? Her brothers (from New York) did kind of look like Angus (I would not say she did! lol). They were outgoing and a little 'wild and crazy'- for 70 or 80 year olds.
Thanks Fish. Not really, a few small parts, blink and you would
miss me, but it was very renumerative.
Young. Anglo-Saxon...ancient name.
Based on the information you have, can I suggest you apply for your
grandparents marriage certificate...it would give you a generation back.
Please feel free to PM me if you have anything private to relay..
I read of the crimes those convicts were guilty of...sometimes something
as small as stealing a loaf of bread in order to survive...
Your ancestors sound characters by the way...:)

Wish I had known it was on Grace, I was so taken up with
watching a re-run of Clocking Off, I missed it.
That was a long time to outlive her husband!
Bitterly cold here today, how is it across the Irish Sea?
I was talking to a lady in the Vet's waiting room the other day, she always seems to be there when I go, has a Dalmation who is being monitored for weight loss....
She remarked that when she was travelling to the place, she
was struck by how green the hills were in the near distance,
they would be 'in relief' and outstandingly beautiful, all the
moreso when they are capped with snow.
This lady is English also, so not coming from a mountaineous
area, perhaps we notice it more rather than take it for granted..as some would.
Well, off shortly to put on an early meal..
Do hope you are feeling much better today.
Appreciating this and your reply
re THE WICKLOW MOUNTAINS, EL..

So glad you enjoyed that trip & yes indeed..
some of our home spun scenery here is breathtaking.. admittedly
and renowned to be so..

Having said that SO IS WALES...

LOL

something we hold in common.

Did you see 'POWERSCOURT GARDENS' in your Wicklow travels?
I always remember with certain fondness .... the pet cemetery there..
and the heart rending inscriptions.

'Thank you' for asking El..

Yes, I feel MILES better today, glad to say
the cold was kind enough to know
'where it wasn't wanted' lol... and so left me.. rather promptly(:

Very much alike Grace...and both matched equally by the beautiful
Lake District in Northern England...again a place beloved by poets.
Unfortunately no I did not see Powerscourt Gardens, an excuse to
come again!
Glad to hear you gave that cold it's marching orders, well done!

Thank you...she is looking better already.

Please don't be put off by my inviting other than 'kitchen'
talk...personally I could talk pets and food until the
cows come home, lol..but that doesn't suit all.
You mentioned recipes....I noticed a thread here on offbeat
soley for recipes, but still hope you will find time to post
us a few on here...in fact, am depending on learning how
to make your famous sausage gravy!...:)

Our Maine Coon mix is a REAL cat! Very aloof until he wants to be petted. The tuxedo is more dog like, very needy and liked to be held.
I do hope all are well. Denny is suffering a bug; Quinn is checking her map... We will break bread this Spring no doubt! There will be a posting for our North American folks to meet!

Maybe I should never say this,
but, sometimes, it is good to be true to self!

even old Shakespeare said that(:
Now why on earth would you think that you're not one my favorites Grace? Granted my sense if geography initially was bad in confusing you & El as far as who is in Ireland and who is in Wales. What did I say to offend?

Interesting also that you should say that. When I first arrived in the kitchen, I kind of thought the same thing. Some of you have known each other longer and I felt the outsider......and kind just sit back and watch the sports talk since I'm not familiar or big on US sports and certainly don't know anything about European sports. So I've got nothing to contribute there.....

Animals, US politics or food, I'm you're girl and then won't shut up!
