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!

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!

.....but can they read their names on the dishes?

Firstly,
Sorry to hear you are feeling LOW...
To *ell with the tiled floors..
just put YOU first & explain to your guests

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.
Here!! here !! Grace. People come to visit people, not inspect how clean our homes are.

HA HA HA! I just saw the poll...you came to the right place, lol!
How are you Dear Rose? Finish the bathroom off?! I know the felling, did mine on Wednesday, back breaking but worth the effort.
Not familiar with hypoglycemic condition but it sounds related to diabetes, so it is a genetic disorder? Wasn't aware of that.
I was so relieved she was negative, I really did not relish the idea of daily injections, not at her great age, although she is very much the kitten cat. The Vet put a tablet down her little throat and squirted water down her...I never do that, but I couldn't say anything. I pride myself I get the tablet right at the back of the throat halfway down the gullet. Hope I am not boring you, haha.
Pretty cold here but still no snow, did you get more after all.
You have a wonderful weekend, keep warm and well nourished...
Best....<3
Love-n-Hugs
Hi Lady Eleanor...
Diabetics have to much sugar in their blood and Hypoglycemic means you have to little... My sister was diagnosed with borderline diabetes but was able to get it under control before it got serious..
I was diagnosed as being hypoglycemic about 14 years ago.. I had a really bad spell one night my sugar had dropped really low and I was so sick I thought I was going to die... I passed out, woke up and was sick to my stomach and on my way to the bathroom when I felt like I simply had to have a glass of Pepsi right then, so I did and within 15 minutes I was right as rain... Went to the doctor that week and got tested...
Now I make sure to keep Pepsi in the house at all times along with some hard candies... I still get a little shaky at times if I don't eat right... So far I haven't had anymore really scary episodes...
Now about the snow.. We've had three... two were just dustings of 1 inch or so but this last one was around the 5 inch mark... We have more rain than anything... Today wasn't bad though.. kinda gray but it was in the 40's.. The forecast does call for some rain again this coming week... It's the stuff that just went through Dennys neck of the woods...
I blame Flower Child all the time for the rain...hahahaha
I know if they have it in Texas 3 days later it'll be here...
I hope that I haven't bored you with all of my ramblings...hahahaha
;o)
Sending you all of my best wishes for a Wonderful day filled with the joys of laughter and the comforts of love...

Thanks for your reply RM, and..
It's all good.

Sometimes, as is often said, it is hard to get the full

An error of judgment can be made.

I have something in common with you
re the 'sport' lol
In fact ! Among personal friends here,
when they go to major sporting events I'm often pulled
In as the babysitter! and they can do so without any guilt(:

Total opposites then. The kitten..the blue/cream tortie for
all her prettiness is a real cat...she refuses to be petted
(flattens herself on the ground) lol unless SHE wants to..
while the eldest, Dai Bach follows me around everywhere and
is very verbal. He is 16 and half and has always ruled the
roost, I thought age had caught up with him until I saw, with
my own eyes, a powerful male who comes by run like the Dickens
when Dai shown his face in the garden. Although he is pedigree,
there is nothing lost in the breeding, yet he is gentle as
a lamb with the rescues..and has babysat quite happily when I
rescued a cat who was two days from giving birth.

Quite exciting to think of you all meeting up...following it
all with interest from here.

British Shorthair, particularly the British Blue, are very

<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 :(
I can't apologise enough Denny....I thought you was having
a larf. Don't you be worrying about the tiles, it's YOU
they are coming to see, not the tiles, people understand when
you have dogs, floors get messy this weather. Hope by now you
are on the mend and Bommer's and Quincy's suggestion of chicken
soup sounds a great idea.

'Morning Grace,
I did exactly that, an error of judgement,
I misread Denny completely. I felt awful!
I recorded the film last night, will watch it later.
Heard of a new series coming to television, on BBC2,
apparently it compares with Downton according to the
critiques, now you are not going to believe this, I
have forgotten the name of it, lol, something about
Peaker...and about the Shelby family in Middle England
just after the war (don't mention the war) lol.
Slightly more violent than Downton but factual.

'Morning Rose dear...so that's what hypoglycemic is...you was
lucky to hit on the Pepsi of your own accord, I had those weaknesses
and knew it was blood sugar related but have had no diagnosis...I
travel with a little pack of glucose sweets at all times, seems to
do the trick. It was my misfortune that when I needed to replace them,
the Chemist himself was behind the counter, he asked me why I needed
them, then advised me against them advising me it could be diabetes and
to go to the doctor. So I came out minus my glucose sweets and didn't get around to going to the doc. lol
Not being careless, there is no air circulating in my doctor's waiting
room...I avoid it like the plague.
I was watching a football match yesterday and thought it was snowing onto the pitch, but it was bubbles. Manchester United were playing West Ham whose theme song is 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' and the whole
stadium fills with bubbles, in the late afternoon light, it looked so pretty. Boring yeah? hahaha
Manchester United won.
Flower is redeemed..she cheers for Man U...
Have a wonderful day. <3

God bless you and your sister. While hypo- is still not pleasant, you just need to make you eat enough carb at regular times. My doctors failed me and I ended up in the hospital with a blood sugar of 800.

I miss Pepsi since it was my drunk of choice instead of alcohol. Took a while to get used to diet pop.

Be well & keep the Pepsi or OJ handy!
