Never said a thing....(tapping side of nose and crossing fingers behind back)

Got that about the temp conversions Franko.....t/y.....

I can convert easily enough from C to F......it is in reverse I come unstuck.

Funny thing, we are all complaining about having to go 'European', yet the
other day I fiddled with the display on the dashboard of the car and unintentially
changed the reading to that of Farenheit. I was lost, I am now thinking in
Centigrade.....P changed it back.

An old Southern remedy:

1. Boil a pan of water.

2. Drop Vick's Vapor Rub into the pan.

3. When the pan is simmering, breathe the vapors off the pan.

4. If this doesn't open you up.....eat some boiled shrimp with a bunch of red pepper seeds and Red Hot Louisiana Sauce.

5. A big cup of coffee, honey, and vodka to follow!

6. If this doesn't cure your congestion....Why the f++k care anymore?

Did you enjoy the movie Flower? It's one I hope to see myself on
the big screen, there are one or two misrepresentations in it
apparently, unfortunately I forget what they are. lol
Rather miffed this evening as it looks like I have missed The Grammys,
I understood it was on tonight but cannot find.
Love, El..<3

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.
Hello and stay warm Grace ... still cold here.

According to The Mail, there is concern for him.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-25473...

"Fears are growing that Michael Schumacher could remain in a 'persistent vegetative state' for the rest of his life even if he wakes up from his coma."

Awaiting good news from you :)

So late getting here today, well, I did look in earlier, after all
I am not going to Grace's news....but am committed to doing
some research for a FHS (Family History Society) so a trip
down to the Archives this afternoon, luckily I found what I
was looking for.
Occasionally I do this when extra funds are needed, I have an older
cat needing surgery......
Watched the 'Red Carpet' this evening as the Grammys are not
shown here until tomorrow night. Some cool dudes on that carpet
lol. Good to see all the various Gendres represented, I look
forward to seeing Ringo and Paul perform together...although would
have liked to hear them sing a 'Beatles' number. 50 years eh?
Amazing.
We are expecting a cold snap mid-week onwards.....
Hoping to fit in a visit to the gardens at Chirk Castle sometime soon
they have a wonderful display of Snowdrops.
Will bid you all Good Night and enjoy the rest of your evening.
Gracious! I only seems like 20 years ...

It was twenty years ago today
That Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

I hope your research is going smoothly and you do get to Chirk someday soon.

You say Ringo can't sing? I have been listening to Mick Jagger for 50 years and have no clue what his lyrics are! Kris Kristophersonn? was being interviewed about being a famous singer and Kris replied, "Singer!?" "Hell I can't sing!" "I'm a writer!" I went to my basement years ago and tried singing while playing my banjo. My wife called the ambulance.
Oh, I've enjoyed Ringo's singing since he wailed that Buck Owen's number "Act Naturally".

Well, I bet you I'm gonna be a big star ....

Kris K is quite right though in what he says, he is primarily a song-writer...and an actor,

See Pete Seager died, grand old age.
Indeed, in his 94th year Cuz El. What a full life eh wot?! Really.

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;"

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 ...

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.......

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!

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
