NO news yet El! this baby is taking it's time
must know it's chilly out there:)
Glad you enjoyed the read about BRENDAN O' CARROLL.
YES, very clever too, as you say, he is a member of MENSA.
Who woulds have thought, when watching MRS BROWNE:)
We don't hear much about SCHUMACKER now,
I sense the outlook isn't good,
such a sad turn of events.
Cold here, in fact VERY COLD.
Greetings of the day to one & all.
GRACE......

A member of Mensa then, I don't that was mentioned in the article,
he (Brendan) has been on one or two chat shows over here and
came across as a thoroughly personable guy. Very clever show,
a lot of thought goes into it.

It does not sound too hopeful as regards Michael Shumacher, only
time will tell. It must have been horrific for his son to witness.

Well, it has actually been dry today in North Wales, and, sunny, but
quite cold. We are lucky here, parts of the South of England is still
under water from before Christmas.

I'll just say Goodnight now.......

<quoted text>we in Canada spent most of my life converting to metric .... most people I know (over age 50) still understand miles per hour better than KMH despite our speed limit signs having been in Kilometers an hour fro 20 years now . We still describe our height in feet and inches. We buy gas by the litre but still thnk in terms of miles per gallon when thinking of fuel efficiency.(due to USA commercials for cars still using that). Europeans go by liters per 100 KM ... no one here can comprehend what that means....
SO, this has been a long, slow and painfull transiiton
It is relatively easy to compare C an F TEmPERATURES ABOVE FREEzIGN, SINCE WE HEAR THOSE TEMPS DAILY. iT IS THE BELOW FREEzING THAT IS LESS COMMON AND THEReFORE HARDER TO PICtURE.
Did you know that there is a temperature where F and C are the same number???
I will let you guess before I give the answer ...
How about weight Franko, do you measure that in stones as we do here? The rest
is pretty much as it is here for the past 20 years....although the speedo on one of
my son's cars is in kilometres, it's a mystery!
I can't even guess the number where F and C are the same!

A wonderful article of which I had no knowledge until, mostly aptly, this evening.
Thanks to you {{{Cuz Luke}}}.......
I take the liberty of copying a para from the article..
"The song proudly proclaims Ry'n ni yma o hyd, er gwaetha pawb a phopeth which translates as "We're still here, in spite of everyone and everything." It relates to the continuing survival of the Welsh people and their language "until Judgement Day" - a reference to a famous conversation recorded by Gerald of Wales between King Henry II of England and an elderly Welshman during one of his campaigns in the 12th century. Of the continued survival of the Welsh language the old man tells the king;"
Thank You for this bit o'history.:)

<quoted text>my favorite Ringo song is Photograph
Yes, good show! I've liked Honey Don't, Octopus' Garden, and two from the double White Album; Don't Pass Me By and the very last one on "side 4" Good Night with orchestra backup (a song by Lennon as a lullaby for Julian).

My favorite that Ringo sang is With A Little Help From My Friends. But for the song, I think the performance of Joe Cocker nailed it.

I don't know if we in canada ever used stones .. certainly not in my lifetime.... we used pounds, now all food is sold using Kilograms/grams or by milliliters (canned soup for example).

Most people are still using pounds for their own weight.

Miles are equal to 1.6 kilometers.

So 100 miles per hour would be 160 kilometers per hour. 50 MPH is 80 KMH.

minus 40 F equals minus 40 C. So this only occurs in really cold parts of the world.

My wife is European and asked how cold it was. I said "zero" meaning realized she was thinking Celsius. I made a small conversion chart and taped it to the refrigerator.

I was in Brasil when it was 37 degrees. Santa was wearing shorts!

Degrees Celsius + 17.78 X 1.8 = Fahrenheit

Degrees Fahrenheit -32 X 5/9 or .555555 = Celsius

Good morning El and all in the kitchen. Watch Obama's state of the union addre4ss. Fact check came through and again he will tell any lie for political reasons. He claimed he has created 8 million jobs where the number is really 3.2 million. Less jobs than when he took office. He says he will by pass congress and just do things by executive order. King Obama!

WalMart just laid off 4% of their workforce the other day from Sam's Club.
Do you know why unemployment is down?
The funds ran out for the individuals!

This is nothing about feet/ inches verses centimeters / meters.
It's about medical discoveries in "Men and Women!"

The doctors discovered when a woman has an orgasm it is the same calorie burn as running for many miles!

The doctors also noticed, "men, when you have an orgasm....it's better to run the miles."

I miss the old monetary system....LSD. All our individuality has gone since
we joined the EU (European Union).
At least we still use the old system for our own weight. I am 10 and half stones.
Way too heavy for my 5 ft 5 and half inches.

That seems easy enough to do in the head....lol.

My own system is a lot more simple. Today is 5C. To convert I double that
making 10 and add 30. Voila...40F.....:)

Good Morning Denny...just creeping towards afternoon I think.

I watched President Obama's State of The Union Address this morning on Sky TV.

We thought it was brilliant. What puzzles me about what you claim, and I am not
doubting you as I don't live there, is, why is everybody in the audience clapping?
Even military men.
Somebody must be happy with his promises.
Personally I think he was saying....this time you won't hold me back....I will do it

A conversion chart conveniently is pretty helpful.

I previously posted a source with such a chart to save the link and use. The formulas are on the bottom of it, too.

And with a little more exploring, I found a pretty nifty type-and-see converter -- easy, peasy:

To every thing (turn, turn, turn) there is a season (turn, turn, turn), and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A bit o'personal history for you,{{{ Cuz El }}}. My ex-wife and I used Judy Collin's rendition of the above as one of the recorded pieces in our wedding ceremony.

I won't bore all of you with the whole selection (which I'd have to dig out of my music collection, anyway). Though I can tell you that we replaced the traditional Wedding March with Pachebel's Canon [Neville Marriner/ St. Martin-In-The-Fields] and used the ending of Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture with cannon [Arthur Fiedler/Boston Pops Orchestra]
