Evening all, thank you for all who have wished me well - going great guns right now, eating for England (and the rest of the colonies!!) and feeling very good. Interesting week ahead - keep your fingers crossed for me. Weather is going to be good for those of you in UK area for next 7 days - that's a promise - not too hot, but no rain and more than a little sun.

I have to admit I have never read it. I was merely quoting
a well known line or two out of the book.
Certainly is weird weather, everywhere. Wicked in Pakistan,
so many losses of lives. We in the UK have just been forecast
a decade of rain!!! Three weeks ago they promised us hot
Summers of old were returning. For this they are paid!
we've had more rain and colder weather than normal this June as well ... had to wear a jacket the past few days ...

Hey TOny, glad to hear things are going well for you.

I will be tracking that UK weather since I will be watching all the Wimbledon that I can.

I feel sorry for Federer, he has a bad draw, has to face Nadal, Djokovic and Murray in order to win the title ... they say if he manages to win, it will be his greatest victory ever.

'Evening Tony...most certainly will be thinking of you early
next week...remember, you are half way there!
Heard that the Lions won....it's a-l-l good.
Cheered immensely by the news of fine weather ahead, thanks so
much for that...:)

Hi Franko...I believe Rafael Nadal is in line for Player of the Year, if I have to be honest, he is my favourite player, but all
are so good, so just looking forward to watching some good tennis.

Personally I don't like Rafa quite so much but he is an awesome player. RIght now the top 4 are so good, any one of them could have been world number one at any time in the previous 50 years of tennis. It is rare to have so many good players all at once.

I too will be following Wimbledon - usually miss much of it with working at Glastonbury, but because of my treatment, can't go this year. Be interesting to see if Murray can win - it seems to be something of a jinx for him in SW London!

Watched the Lions' game as weather curtailed the sailing - I have to say that they were lucky: not a great game, although 23-21 sounds close. Some very good individual performances, but neither side really played like a team. Some dreadful refereeing didn't help the cause, but I think the Ozzies were a little unlucky not to win - with a decent kicker, they would have.

Wimbledon has been a jinx for all englishmen for a long time.... also for British women .. the last british woman to win was Virginia Wade, 1977.

At least you had the game to fall back on, I heard (as I
didn't watch it) that the Lions were lucky to win, but
glad they did, it's a good start for them the first test of
the series.
Looking a tad overcast here btw!

Morning El and all,going for my annual review with the nurse shortly for my Hypertension review,had to fast for twelve hours,bloody typical normally I'm ok but feel I could eat a whole dolphin on toast at this precise moment,
Well a great win for the England under 20's and a win for the Lions,the ref was a complete muppet typical Southern Hemisphere,how O'Driscoll got two penalties against him I'll never know and the last scrum was a complete farce giving Australia a chance at goal,I'm afraid that ref needs re training..

Good Afternoon Everyone..
it's like Winter here.....it really is.
Can I appeal to you guys to sign the petition
as below, not being on Facebook I have no where
else to put it, it would really help toward
the goal if you do and kindly pass it on to
like-minded friends.
Thanks so much.

I was stunned by the link El,
it left me cold and sickened and equally
filled with admiration for *your*
bringing it to our attention here ..
I signed the MINUTE I read it..

Only by putting the spotlight
on these matters will something ever be done.

El,
Might I make a suggestion, since
you don't do FACEBOOK,[neither do I.]

Would it be a good idea if you gave this
a thread of it's very own, it's important enough..
and, with a catchy thread head to attract readers
I think you'll get a many more votes that way..
for such a worthy cause..

Just a suggestion, but it' your call...
and thanks SO much again, for highlighting such
grave injustice.

<quoted text>WEll the provinces in Canada are quite large compared to most states .. after all, we have 10 provinces and 3 territorries in the same area you have 50 states. Only ALaska and Texas match most of the provinces in size. Except for the easternmost provinces, which are smaller for some reason.

SO Calgary is about 1000 miles east of us even though it is the next province to us.

Vancouver is "used to the rain" and spring runnoff, so the area has been better prepared with higher dykes at any creeks and rivers that have previously flooded years ago. Yet, if something really out of the normal could happen and we'd end up with floods too.
Be safe. Someone's pissed off Mother Nature big time and she's really been showing he wrath these last couple of years.

When my friend retired back to Canada, she found an apartment in Ottawa by the river. Never mentioned the name but you may know which. Water is beautiful to live by but really dangerous.

Big old fashioned kitchen here, always the smell of freshly brewed coffee, fresh baked bread, why
not grab yourself a coffee, and take the weight off..........
