That is tragic Grace and so sad. I love trees but fear them too. A woman and her baby were killed a few years back when a rotting tree that was weakened by a previous storm, fell on the mother and her child as they were walking through a park. Just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Who can understand such tragedies? A neighbor's tree next door to us was struck by lightening about 5 years ago. Luckily, no one was near the tree at the time. Nature can be so unpredictable, mysterious and yet beautiful.

<quoted text>we were hunter gatherers ... so we picked plants and berries that grew naturally and hunted wild game. The point of the Paleo diet is to buy food that has not been genetically altered and fed grains when animals of the past hardly ate those (grass fed is better) and no steroids and other things injected into the meat. The trouble is finding all that at your local store .. almost impossible, it requires WORK to track down food that is as it was 10,000 years ago. SO, not an easy diet to follow ...
This comes pretty close Franko.....

Actually Grace, I was speaking out of sheer frustration as it
goes on here yet the authorities are slow to act. If it
were dogs then they have some form of standing, cats do not
appear to have that protection. You are very kind as usual.

That man was so unlucky, stating the obvious, five seconds more
or less and he would not have been in that situation. Such
a sad loss and an amazing accolade as you say.
The young girl of 17 also, who was killed when a
tree fell on her mobile home. Not her normal home but where
she was sleeping while the main house was renovated.
Both sadly missed.

Well, we have been incredibly lucky and I am thankful for that.

Your kin are some hard-core sailors! Whoa I see a high sea and my instinct says 'stay back'! Some brave folks there, but I'm sure if you can enjoy the extreme it's probably worth it.
Sad for those who passed, yet also keeping in mind it could've been much worse.
We have a monster cottonwood tree at the edge of our neighbor's property, overhanging most of that side of the property and even a little of the house. Our neighbor doesn't much care about it, but we feel it's quite a threat. To get in and out of our area all the folks on the lane have to pass under it. We tried getting an estimate a couple of years ago to just get it down ourselves; $7500 just to get it on the ground with us cutting it up and hauling it away. No wonder our neighbor feels it isn't a threat. It doesn't make good firewood at all, as it is a heavy and dense softwood. I often say a prayer of protection on account of that tree, for all of us.

It sure was Sir Tally.....the South of England was hit particulrly hard
some good news this morning is 100,000 homes have had their electricity
supply restored, 60,000 are still without power. Five died in this storm. British Rail are gettng some flack for stopping train services, but they erred on the side of caution and that is a good thing, considering there were trees across the lines.
TONY....hope you are not one affected by the power cuts an that you was able to keep to you hosp. appt yesterday the roads being as they are.
Was thinking of you being relieved of the PEG, hope it happened.
KRYPTEIA....was that a goal or was it not a goal? Roll on goal technology whatever it is called.
Nice day here, think I wlll sweep up some of those leaves.....
Good Morning Everyone and wishing you all a good day.
No problem - the worst of the storm bypassed most of the West Country Dorset caught it badly, but it only reached its height by the Isle of Wight. All the services were ready, so the one tree that fell across the road was clear by the time we drove through at 0730.

The line came out like lightning! She-who-must-be-obeyed had to drive me in as after a sedative, you're not allowed to drive. She anticipated that I would be in for most of the morning as I was when they fitted the peg line, so had lots of plans of what to do in Plymouth whilst I was in, including lunch with a chum. That all went to rats when at 0915 the hospital rang her to say I could be collected at 0945! Don't think I was flavour of the month!

Tomorrow is the monthly check up - will let you know how that goes. Nice to see PP on here, she doesn't drop by that often.

That's great to hear Tony...really moving forward now.

But you men! I am sure you do it on purpose! P was at the Eye Clinic
yesterday, a mini bus collected him as he was not to drive in case he
had drops inserted. I had this planned, that planned, and what happened, he was back within one and half hours. He was one hour early for his appointment, expected to wait around, but no, he was called in for his check-up within ten minutes, checked by two technicians followed by the Surgeon, and home before he knew it! Also good news, his eye has stabilised.

Certainly cannot complain about the NHS here either.

Will hope it is more good news for you tomorrow...
