It has to be the weather Rose, that is such an extreme increase in
temps, difficult to adjust to that I would think (not that we have
that problem over here) lol..go with what your body tells you and
rest up, you must need it. I truly hope that by now you are feeling more rested and energized.
Am coming in late today, had a million things to do, not saying I did them all, but I did empty and clean out the fridge/freezers something I have intended to do for a while, changed the beds and etc.
Will take it easier tomorrow.
I was sorry that the videos didn't turn out, that they arrived merely as photos, I have an idea on how to get round that.
Feel better soon....:)

Hey Lady Eleanor...
Well I managed to get in 5 hours of real sleep last night but then I was up and wishing I wasn't... It's rained most of the day here so that isn't helping...
I did manage to transplant two hostas this morning between rain showers after I walked the pack... It was raining when I took them out this morning and I just came back in from taking them out again and you guessed it... It's raining...hahahahaha
I made Ham and Cabbage for dinner and it was good... but other than that and doing the dishes, I haven't accompliished much of anything today...
I also made up a batch of chocolate cup cakes... Topped with vanilla icing.. but I did that while the cabbage and ham were cooking...
OK so I think now I'm gonna kick back in the recliner... If I sleep I sleep if not then at least I'll be in a relaxed position...
I do hope that you are doing well and that your weather is being kind to You and Yours..
Sending you all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Hello to all in the kitchen!
I have been off line due to my CPU dying!
Many regrets to the passing of Mrs Thatcher. Popular with some and not others. I thought she rocked...
I am on the mend from my spill. There are still times that I experience some vertigo. That is waning....
Manchester U is still in first place and here in the USA the Masters Tournament is in full swing! Man the best person win...

For Denny, Brighteyes bested me in our NCAA brackets. I owe her a steak dinner. We are currently tied in our Sunday pool escapade, 2 to 1. This month will be the tie breaker! She is one competitive lady!!! Nice.

Hope everyone is well.

Peace.

I will chat about lamb recipes on Friday.

El,

From what I hear and read on
the INTERNET, there is a foreboding
about Margaret Thatcher's funeral..

a lot of unrest and threats of violence..
both in parts of the UK and NI..

there even have been very angry exchanges
over here as to why an Irish representative
should attend her funeral!

As I said before, I think this is uncalled for ..
and the dead (no matter WHO) should be allowed
RIP.

Have you heard anything where 'you' live?

Regardless of the typo Franko, a very enlightening post, speaks a great deal of sense and thanks.
I get a little lazy about cleaning up typoes if they don't make a difference in the essential meaning of the post ... but it sure is embarassing if your typo is on the key word in the sentence.

I mentioned this to P and he reminded me of when he had his motor cycle accident as a young man, his leg was smashed, both fibula and tibia had compound fractures...yet he never felt a thing. He came to the following morning in hospital, leg plated and in plaster having had a metal plate screwed to the tibia, the fibula they left to heal itself. Yet, he felt NO PAIN.
Ironically, when he returned to work three months later, he slipped the first night on a piece of string, and twisted his right knee. That was agonizing, he was taken home and the doctor was called, back to the hospital. His leg had weakened having been in plaster for so long.
Now a few years ago, I DID dislocate my knee whilst out walking with the dogs. So had to be over 10 years ago actually. On that occasion I screamed blue murder...LOL! Same knee...(:
very strange that he felt no pain ... I guess it depends on where the pain receptors are?

actually ive had an operation for a blown disk while ago, so i guess thats considered broken. Worse pain ive ever had, worse than giving birth and i think of myself as having a high tolerance for pain, but honestly if that operation didnt work i'd been just as happy to die on that table right then and there..
I've been lucky, despite having occasional back pain it was not as bad as other folks I've known ... tolerable and i could still function except for heavy lifting. Still, it made sitting at my work desk quite unpleasant, had to get up and walk around every 10 minutes ....

Sincere condolences to the people in the UK for their loss of Maggie. RIP
Boomer & Brighteyes
well, a few days late and a few dollars short for me ... I wasn't in Offbeat the past few days ..

Yep. Maggie sure made an impact. Her fate was to be the Prime Minister at a time when some pivotal decisions had to be made ... either choice was going to be popular with some and unpopular with others ... I felt she was in a no win situation sometimes .... But she stuck to her guns and I think many say it was her steadfast unwillngness to back down that ultimately won her the respect of many of her opponents.

SPEECH BY NIGEL FARAGE, UKIP
"I am the Government's Worst Nightmare. I am a White, Tax-Paying, God fearing English man. I am a hard working Brit and I work long hours to earn a living.
I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others. I believe in British products and buy them whenever I can.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and not to some governmental functionary, to share with others who don't work!
I think owning a home doesn't make you a capitalist; it makes you a smart Brit. I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it. Join in with the majority!
I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.
My heroes are fellow Brits like Freddy Flintoff and Winston Churchill and I know I've missed a few thousand!!!!!
I don't hate the rich. What I hate is the way they always manage to avoid paying proper taxes. I don't pity the poor, I just hate the way they are always moaning that they are hard done by!!
I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!
This is ENGLAND.....We like it the way it is and even more so the way it was...so stop trying to change it to look like some other socialist country! If you were born or legally migrated here and don't like it... you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the House of Commons, the seat of our biggest problems.
I want to know where the "Do Gooders" get their money from, and why are they always part of the problem and not the solution?
Can I get an AMEN on that one?
that is quite a speech .. it should resonate with most of the voters in the UK .....

'Afternoon Krypteia...that brings back pleasant memories of home actually, nice.
As for unions, I have never in my life joined one, but I recognize the need for them in the beginning.
It was funny yesterday, no sooner had I read yours about the UKIP when
I had an e-mail forwarding the speech as above from my friend in the UK....I just posted it for the benefit of our cousins across the pond really so they would know what we are talking about.
I am not saying I agree with it all btw. Oh, and my friend's daughter-in-law is Muslim!
Many folk on this side of the pond have similar sentiments as to how our countries are being run ...

How does that saying go "those who cannot learn from history are destined to repeat it"?
I did not hear and can't think of a worse idea. The gov just did a major overhaul of mortgage regulations which go into effect in January. Lots of hoops on both sides. Let the market figured itself out. It's a nice idea but not everyone can or should own a home (sorry if that puts a cramp in your R/E business :-)
I have been in sales or owned my own business over the past 300 years ...

My belief is .. if a customer is unhappy with a product, or if they cannot afford the product, then they are truly not a customer .... which falls in line with your comment that not everyone should own a home ..

The "unhappy" part deals with the salesmen who find a way to close any sale, often by conning the buyer into believing they should buy something ... I never agreed with that approach ... I want a customer only if they want the product, not because I found a way to push it on them.

I think it was Clinton who decided everyone should be able to own a home. His administration loosened the loan requirements and encouraged loans to people who otherwise would not have qualified for one.

Nice sentiment but not reality.

That is exactly what Margaret Thatcher did. She made it possible for people to buy their 'council' homes, which otherwise belonged to the local council..the houses were previously built for those who could not afford to buy their own homes. Further, she ensured that the tenant would receive a discount off the purchase price, regulated by how many years they had been a tenant.
On the downside, it tended to set people apart from the remainder of the estate as they would immediately put their own 'stamp' on the property, i.e., new front door, etc.

Hey Dear Rose....seems to me you got more done than most, in spite of being under the weater...literally that is.
After 'speaking' to you here yesterday I set to to water the garden, could hardly believe it was pouring down as I unravelled the hose..I just ignored it and watered everything anyway, my philosophy being, the rain does not fall in pots. Still waiting for that Hosta which I put in the ground, to show, will then split it and transfer it to two nice pots I have standing by..too many slugs and snails here to leave it in the ground.
Cabbage and Ham sounds nice.....have you any ideas what I can make with Pliladelphia cream cheese, I found a stack of them (within the use-by date) when sorting out the fridge yesterday.
Two of them are the new chocolate cream cheese....I made a cheesecake using one a few weeks ago, it was so so.
Glad you had five hours solid....it will do you the world of good.
Have a wonderful day....don't forget, and don't overdo things!...:) <3

Actually it was Carter who passed the community reinvestment act but it was Clinton who pushed it forward. People have a short memory and think the value of a home can only go up. Watch for big price increases and another bubble coming
