'Bright Eyes'
I love your present avatar.
Today is is snowing,
I was out near the mountains with the dog...
and coming home, I was lucky enough to
spot some wonderful scenery..
Tall trees and even high TV masts,
seemed as tho' they were stretching out
their 'arms' inviting the fresh falling snow to sit with them..
and it seemed the snow took up the invitation
enfolding them in sparkling white robes!
[I was imagining all this] lol.
then, at the edge of a field.. stood rows of yellow daffodils,
made fluorescent by a glittering mantle of snow..
I stopped the car and stayed there ages,
savoring these moments.
and thought...
If it were a picture in an art gallery,
it would've been advertised at a high cost
and, yet ...
there was NO price on this..
as I witnessed it..as it was
in glorious natural surroundings.
Awwwh! you got me Dear Grace! That was very beautiful and thank you so much.
Now mine.......for Els Kitchen and all my friends here.

My Wish for You

May the sun shine upon you,
to brighten your day.

May the stars guide you,
wherever you may go.

May the wind push you,
when you think you're at the end.

May the earth ground you,
to nurture your very soul.

May the Angel's protect you,
everyday of your life.

May the moon remind you,
that we are always connected.

May the rain fall upon you,
to cleanse your heavy heart.

May you always remember,
as long as there is you.....
there is me.

Boomer,
the secret is..
one can do both..
'THINK' AND 'ACT' at one and the same time..
or perhaps ..
'multitasking' is *only* the gift of womankind (:
LOL Dear Grace. Boomer does to much multitasking. Doing laundry, cooking dinner, doing crossword puzzle and everything else he can think of doing at any given minute. Sometimes it drives me crazy but I am very thankful also. Our one cat is the same way as Boomer, ADHD and the other cat is like me, very laid back and complete one thing/get it off my plate. Oh, and it has to be done correctly. LOL

Sadly, not to be the grand slam this year - the best side on the park won - have to give it to the Taffs, they played superbly and left England looking very ordinary. Just think - had they woken up the first week of the tournament and realised that they were supposed to be playing rugby, we would have had them crowing for another twelve months! God bless the Irish!
That was the first rugby match I have watched from beginning to
end Tony, just not England's day, but never mind, makes them more determined next year. I enjoyed it, the atmosphere was amazing and I actually picked up the rudiments of the game along the way..with a little help!
Tough game. Makes the footballers look soft!....:)

Good morning/afternoon to all! My thoght last night was to push a little humor into the political banter. Politics and religion I avoid. It serves me and others well just to do volunteer activities! I have served at the soup kitchen, the homeless shelter, and various other kitchens in town.

For me, it is about "doing". It is one thing to sit and carp; the best thing to do is act! Don't like the way things are happening, be the change! Make it better.

We are volunteers here in Columbus, Ohio, with a group named, Community Festival or ComFest for short. On their website, the Statement Of Principles regarding ComFest is what attracted me to volunteer. Check out the website. We were voted Best Festival in the state of Ohio in 2010! Imagine that! 3K volunteers can't be wrong!!

It is nearing lunch time here. My lunch will be leftover ravioli. They are 6 cheese and jerk chicken. Yum Yum.

Brighteyes and I have a meeting this evening with a sponsor of another festival that we are putting on. Hopefully, it will not be too long. I hate to miss Hell's Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay.

Enjoy your day all. Chat later!
Good day to you Boomer. Keep up the positive works!

Dang! How could I miss Gordon?!?!

It is no doubt late over the pond and still somewhat early here in the mid-west USA However, I have felt the need to pose a riddle if you will.

WHo do we look like compared to an actor/actress?
With all due respect to the Kitchen folk, I will guess that Lady El and Dame Judi Dench...

Who is next?
Let's bring in Spring with laughter!

Thanks.

Happy Spring Equinox Everyone, beautiful day here, every day
is beautiful.

Boomer....what a brilliant idea and how flattering is that. I
adore Judi Dench...we do share one resemblance in that I am very
quietly spoken also, and can dissolve into giggles at the drop
of a hat....

I found this immensly flattering in a way also. Years ago when I live in NYC...I had gone down to the foyer where I met a lady who
as it happened was wheelchair bound, we got talking. Suddenly she
exclaimed 'my, but you are like Jackie 'O'.' Well thankyou I replied, I am so flattered.
'Oh I don't think she's good looking' was the reply.....hahaha
Never forgot that.

Good to start the day with some laughs around here....who's next
on our list of look-a'likes?

All are enjoying conversation in the kitchen.
(there is a wrap at the door)
Good afternoon Lady El or should I say Dame Judi Dench!
(Laughter erupts from the kitchen)
Good afternoon Brighteyes and welcome to the kitchen.
(Brighteyes) So obviously I missed something?
(Lady El) Well my Dear, Sir Denny was saying how great Judi DRENCH was in Skyfall!(laughter)
(Brighteyes walking over to get some tea)
Well my only question is...... is Denny Cranes avatar really him? Maybe we should do his
look a'like next?
(looking across the room) Sir Tallyho, what say you?

Tony, would that be the original Frankenstein OR the Mel Brooks version?

However, in the original, the "monster" was quoted as saying, "...friends, good!"

Dame Judi turns around from taking a tray of chocolate muffins from the cooker....
'Why, if it isn't Felicity Kendal, how lovely to see you my dear'
Brighteyes looks puzzled....then remembers Felicity Kendal starring in The Good Life....loved you in The Good Life Judi remarks, we need somebody with your love of plants and your green fingers around here...she was about to add 'and your delightful persona' but thought that Brighteyes might be a bit taken aback that coming from a woman...
as they spoke a rather handsome gent came strolling into the kitchen....

I made a humouress (or humourless whichever way you look at it) remark about football players yesterday, which was tastless really.

A heartwarming story in the press this morning
concerning a player who not only plays for his tea...Barnet...but manages as well. Without pay.

The other night he and his team were travelling along in their luxury coach, going home after a match, in which they had been defeated and faced relegation, when he spotted a group of Barnet fans huddled at the side of the road, their coach had broken down, they had a long journey home.

The player of whom I speak, upon reaching a service station, requested his team to dismount, and asked the driver to go back to where the fans were waiting in the freezing cold, and bring them back to the service station, where he bought them all coffee and they met the team, who gave them of their time, posing for pics, etc., then he arranged transport for them all to reach their homes safely, over 200 miles away.

He said it was the least he could do for the fans.

Well done EDGAR DAVIDS.
