I used Manila for vanilla, Milly!:)
Thank you, it did. Had battery replaced too for good measure. It was cranking slower in these winter days now. After a quick lunch-ish bite, a spate of Christmas shopping was enjoyed/endured. lol
The worst is our private road; slush frozen. Highways are clear though wet.
Dec. 16 historical significance ... the ties that bind.
1689 – The Parliament of England adopted the Bill of Rights, declaring that Englishmen possessed certain positive civil and political rights.
1773 – To prevent the unloading of tea that was taxed without their consent under the Tea Act, a group of colonists destroyed it (pictured) by throwing it into Boston Harbor.
and it isn't just about mis=spelling.....

I had a lot of calls to make when I went to town this afternoon, the last of which
was the library. I had renewed my books twice over the 'phone, today I actually
got around to return them, and take a couple out whilst there. So there I am
staring at all these books, and the name of the author whose books I was so keen
to take out, left me. The Librarian is so helpful. Sh went through all the Liverpudlian
authors she could bring to mind, while I am, no, it isn't her, e v e n t u a l l y it comes
into my tiny mind and she leads me over to where I can choose from six books written
by her. After all that, the book I wanted was out, lol.

Glad all went well for you today Cuz....

always interested to know what happened 'on this day'.......t/y

'ave a bannanna!

Hi there Denny......at least you had a great time, that's the main thing, genuinely sorry
to hear the pheasants were scarce, just means somebody else will benefit from them,
maybe someone not such a good shot. A lane here is chocca with pheasants, we
try to avoid them when driving down. I did pick one up newly killed, put it in the
boot, then hung it for a week in the shed and cooked it for the cats. I couldn't
stomach it, silly really, but still, it didn't die in vain.

Hello, franko. He did. Good afternoon/evening, Kitchen-eers
parts of bio article
... holds the record for the most Academy Award acting nominations without a win. He won four Golden Globes, a BAFTA and an Emmy, and was the recipient of an Honorary Academy Award in 2003.
In 2003, the Academy honoured him with an Academy Honorary Award for his entire body of work and his lifelong contribution to film.[33] O'Toole initially balked about accepting, and wrote the Academy a letter saying that he was "still in the game" and would like more time to "win the lovely bugger outright." The Academy informed him that they would bestow the award whether he wanted it or not. He told The Charlie Rose Show in January 2007 his children admonished him, saying that it was the highest honour one could receive in the filmmaking industry. O'Toole agreed to appear at the ceremony and receive his Honorary Oscar. It was presented to him by Meryl Streep, who has the most Oscar nominations of any actress (17).

BTW ... finding the above, I found Joan Fontaine's obit/bio article. Passed 12/15. RIP
i AGREE, the lifetime award is a bigerhonor, YOu win an individual award sometimes by luck, being in the right movie at the right time (NO ONE THOUGHT forest gump WOULD AMOUNT TO MUCH WHEN THEY FIRST STARTED FILMING), BUt you get nominated frequently only by being top notch for a long long time.

Had a good day out shopping yesterday,
Usual Christmas crowds but sweet and easy in another way.

The charities here, unfortunately are being hard hit this year,
since a controversy has been revealed that a lot of the monies
from these charities were being creamed off .. to top up
salaries of already well paid 'fat cats' involved in these organisations.
Very sad indeed.

However, have a good day everyone.

As well you might Grace.

But, here's the thing.

After my brief sojurn as 'spelling police'....lol....I reverted
to being who I am, which is,'to each his own'.....

It isn't how you and I were raised, or what we would do ourselves,
and if it were up to me these birds would not be bred for this
purpose, but, rather someone who is an expert in that field
rather than some amateur who would perhaps only cause injury,
that is why I was sorry it was a wasted journey for Denny in that respect.

I can't in all honesty, condemn anybody for their life style simply because
it isn't my own.

Although......I make no pretence, if I were starving, if I knew anybody who
was starving, I would kill to provide food.

A very Happy Birthday to you today Krypteia, I will raise a glass (Baileys)
to your good health this afternoon.

I couldn't understand why Daniel Defoe wasn't brought on, but still, it just
wasn't their day and of course the Manager suffered, I don't think that's
right, what do you think?

So very sorry to hear of your mate passing away, the only blessing, it
was a short lived illness.

Today though is your day....enjoy!

Hey Grace......

fortunately I am not, and do not know anybody who is,
which spares me from that, more importantly, from
doing the deed.

I am one who, even reading about any cruelty to animals,
keeps me awake nights.

There are other means of feeding the world other than killing
animals, as you yourself so rightly adhere to.

So whether I could or not, it's doubtful.

We would have a lot more vegetarians if people had to personally kill their own food. If it weren't for olives in my Martinis, I would starve to death.

That's true enough, although at least the animal would be spared the horrors
of the abbatoir.

I am rapidly becoming more vegetarian day by day.

That's quite a walk you have lined up, hope all goes well for you both and
very nice indeed to see you here MH.

I am out of work now. Between 2:00 a.m. - 5:00 a.m. I walk my Chihuahua and my glass of vodka through my neighborhood and then later in the day. If I need to shop it is a 4 mile round trip.

You definitely make a good point about a professional vs
some amateur doing half a job and causing even more suffering.

I always remember that wonderful scene in the movie QUEEN when Her
Royal Highness saw the beautiful deer up close,
and, it's beauty and majesty shone in her eyes,
she 'shood' it away before it was shot as someone had a gun
at the ready.

I made sure too, when the lads were young and became vegetarian,
not to be pestering others about what they eat.

Anyway no bad feelings,
join me in a glass of Xmas spirits..
it's good, it's Irish:) will warm the cockles.

I hope you haven't a thief like this among
your gang! lol..
if you had, it would cost you!!!:)

here is a thought: as the USA was being settled it was estimated that 70 million Buffalo were roaming the plains

now, if no one killed the Buffalo , do you think we might be walking on tip toes in Chicago just trying to keep our noses above the Buffalo crap??????
