The weather & driving to work yesterday was so dangerous --- snow, ice & low visibility ---- the normal speed limit would have been too fast. If I was too slow feel free to go around me instead of riding my back bumper.

I got to work without hitting anyone or anyone hitting me.

<quoted text>Thanks so much for this DDR,
Yes, it has been very controversial over here..
we were talking about it here on El's K..
and some interesting views.

only today, another controversy has arisen
about the same thing!

Hope you are gently easing into Spring..
Bring back one of those lovely
GARDENS you did so well..

Life is sad,[for me just now] could do with the fragrance
of Spring flowers wafting around...
Hope you're soon feeling a bit better Grace.

Thanks sincerely, RM.

Just worried about my friend who is terminally ill..
Trying to 'fit' in to my thoughts,

Something that won't rest easily..
but -
as in all things

It will HAVE to.

Thanks again.

A sprinkle of snow in these parts
And ever so cold.

Not at all, El...
and great of you to steer me towards
the Co Cork programme.
My friend is v ill.. too rapidly, goin down hill,
we,[her friends]
have been visiting regular as we can, talking, wondering, crying...
everyone here knows how it is -
as we have all had similar experiences.
I understand that:
By way of light relief,
my son [who was home for 4 days] & I
went to see LINCOLN the movie..
Very good, certainly,
but waaay below the hype it has been
universally given -[in MY opinion]..
Having seen the two movies -
I'd rate "JANGO UNCHAINED"
STREETS ahead of LINCOLN,
in every way - as movies go -
then that's just ONE i
opinion .
All good greeting El, and to everyone in
the kitchen.
Good morning Grace my friend. How are you this fine day :)

I know - I know!

We've *ALL* been here .. one time or another..

One of my times ..... is NOW.

Hi Grace,
I wish I could give you a big hug.....it really sounds like you need one about now. Just remember, all of us here in the kitchen love you and there is a big group hug coming your way.
Thinking of you!

Am sorry to hear this, Grace..we all feel helpless.. WHEN someone we love or an acquaintance is I'll and will not recover. All you can do is BE THERE for them..DO NOT IGNORE THEM...they WERE a part of YOUR life, when they were well.
NOW, they need your strength and courage.. to face their fate...YOU are the link to WHAT they will be losing..LIFE!!..I nedx a cup of coffer and a slice of banana bread....to go, I also have a pal dying of cancer..please, heed my words and Grace's...UNTIL you have someone close dying or yourself... YOU VALUE.. ALL THOSE WHO will be left behind....MISSING YOU!!

You can just pray Grace. And be strong for your friend
who is fortunate to have such good friends around her.
Let her go with an easy mind having made her Peace with God.

I am sorry too to hear you have a friend
in the same position, and I offer my sympathy to you..

yet, I found your post to me
strange,
you ask me not to IGNORE the person??
and to heed your words..

odd thing to say, when I am attentive [to her]
to a fault and broken, I went into the hospital the other night,
only to be turned away by the nurses,
that hardly indicates 'ignoring'

Well, I'll stop there,
as we are both in the same boat in this regard..
and perhaps I'm not in the humour to be writing about this..

so I'll stop.

Good day to all!
Grace it is most unfortunate when someone near and dear becomes ill. There are a lot of words to say or write. However, that really isn't enough!
Sometimes we have to summon the courage from deep inside, find the love and the light, to pass on to our friends and loved ones.
May Light and Love Bless your friend.
Peace.
