Hi DW - struggling a little now - the radiotherapy is blitzing my throat and the PEG line to the stomach has killed my appetite, so this weekend is proving a little bit of a struggle. Not helped by the heat, which means I have to hide inside (have to keep out of the sun). I realise out 80 F + is nothing compared to areas of the US, but it's a heat-wave for us without a/c. Have no intention of caving in to any of this - but it is harder than it's been for a while.
Well Tony, feel the spirit and be creative in your nourishment and keep fighting. You've got backing all 'round.

Ah ... it's said that it ain't the heat, it's the humidity. Press on, mate!

not to change your clothes - yet -
I heard the sun WILL come out today as
hot as ever, just cloud in the early part..
[the forecast says]
I feel guilty, you had everything done & dusted
and I'm not long up(:
I'm inclined to agree about the Royal baby
NO FAULT rests with Kate + William,
[whom I wish very well]
it's the media saying things like 'everyone around the
world holding their collective breath waiting for
the news'!! WHAT??(:
LOL. I'm holding my breath alright but it's more heat induced lol
Wishing everyone here a fair day.
And the sun will rise tomorrow! Bet your bottom [U.S. dollar]...:)

Oh, speaking of financials .... it's touted here that 'baby royal' is good for the economy there with all kinds of goods offered in commemoration of the blessed event.

But how I wish I could fly the flag from my window...
Well, there's the thing ... hope. Maybe the event will have an indirect blessing on an uptick in supplying food banks and such "in the baby's name" by charity of the congregations, the capitalistic marketers gaining profit, the Royal Family, and dare I say it ... Parliament? If at least some come through, it should help.

After I'd visit her on a frosty night on my way to
The car when all the stars were out
But I could feel the bitter cold,
She taught me not to complain,
But to appreciate the fact that I could see them.
In her earlier stages of Alzheimer's ..
when trying to explain something and when
She became befuddled, she taught me ..
How I took communication on an minute by minute basis,
for granted..
When alone in a room full of her friends and relatives,
yet not recognising ANY of them
She taught me what I had taken for granted..
Friends there, and yes,
All one had to do was join in-
But, alas, not always so simple;
plus a myriad of other things I took for granted,
She silently pulled me up
And MADE ME THINK,
Since she and I ..
during our times together, couldn't converse,
I had all the time in the world ..when sitting by her
to observe, ie, times when she would pull out a feeble hand
Out from under the bedclothes
and direct it to her face, yet never reaching the face,
she would withdraw her hand again, I remember thinking,
'Maybe a simple thing like her nose..was itchy'
but she couldn't scratch it!
I had never thought of that before,
but I knew now, because she taught me..
She gave me, by her teaching, an appreciation
of what it is like to 'live' every day..
not merely to exist in a
No man's land..like she had to do,
And because of it I have an extra sense
of being alive..
Strange that such a frail old lady,
Altho' lost in a forest of confusion,
had these hidden powers to affect
others, in a silent way..
and for the good...
I am very glad I knew her.
Grace,

Few people would have gotten all that out of the experience as you did.

But then, few are as insightful and introspective as you.

Indeed ... I think grand poobah of General Motors back in the day (Durant? or Sloan?) came up with that concept; and it certainly blossomed over time!
I got "tunnel-visioned" and neglected to comment on the sorrowful train wreck tragedy in Quebec. Such a catastrophe for that little town. Looking like the train engineer takes the hit as the direct culprit
the environmentalists are trying to figure out how to minimize the size of the landfills, while the big manufacturers are figuring out how to make poeple buy a replacement every 2 or 3 years instead of 10 years like it used to be .. these numbers apply to computers built currently versus those built circa 1990. But it applies to almost everything ... people replace furniture every 5 or 6 years, but when I was a kid most poeple were telling me they had tables, chairs, and sofas that were over 20 years old.

You mean...you are NOT holding your breath about the Royal baby?
lol
There are apsects of their lives I do not envy, Kate and William
that is, but then again, they have it made in a lot of respects,
his by his birthright, hers by choice, but one thing I cannot
understand is, how on Earth is this new baby going to give us
Hope? How? I mean will it relieve those who have to rely on food
banks or worse, Hope? I don't get it. I just do not get it at all.
Another Royal is expecting too..and that is Zara, Princess Anne's
daughter. Good luck to her also.
But a happy medium would be nice and that I would like to see some
pleasure at the very least, here in Wales, when the new baby arrives.
Sadly that won't happen. Tends to push me in their corner if you
know what I mean.
Good point about the HOPE ... the media tends to exagerate and use colourful language in order to give themselves something to write about and get the public all hyped up about an even that happens millions of times a day.. The only HOPE I see being fullilled is to continue to have heirs in the family line ....

I'm more interested in how the party for the little cutie turned out. Details! We want details!
Ha! Happeeeeeeeeeee SINday, to you, El and Grace, and Franko of course. The party was a success. When you order a celebration cake, they give you one they call a smash cake, just for the baby at no cost. I watched him dig his fingers in there, shove it in his mouth. His hair. His entire face, the high chair, was wearing butter cream icing. Shae and her hubby R J made fried chicken, there was two kinds of dip, icecream, punch, it was a nice get together. EL... had to work today and NOOOO yesterday was not your typical day for me. I do work all day Saturday though.

Good day El! I see you're back from holiday... A friend of mine sent me some pics of my Rover 2000... check out the avatar! Check your PM box, and send me a quick one. I should have the rover in my possession in a week or two, if all goes well. The interior is red. well, I'll have to change that! Time for a spot of tea, then I'm putting this to bed!

D'you know Quincy, I honestly couldn't say without looking
it up.

It's a huge amount of pressure you are right, one thing, the
new parents will be fantastic parents, they are both wonderful
with children, you see that when they go walkabout.

Will there ever be World peace? Seems to be conflict everywhere
you look.

The realistic part of me would agree....then why did I switch on
the news this morning in eager anticipation of the birth being
announced? Beats me.....:)
