Remember that tune - Strange World etc - but absolutely nothing about the programme.

My Ma was supposed to have gone, but now with the care she receives she is thriving. They say she could go on another 10 years - don't want to think about it.

We are searching for annuities now for OH.  not easy

Have you looked at Saga - we got what I think is a very good deal from them. 




No - went on a web site thing and was surprised at difference in payments.

Have to make mind up by end of month. OH not 65 till next year but FA says we can get money/ annuity now. Certainly will make life a little easier until state pension kicks in.

Some de fogging of the ole brains gone on today, that's a lot for a Saturday morning

I'm frozen brrrrrrr, tempted to light wood burner but fear I shall regret later when I'm sat in 1000 degrees of heat

The other girl from the Waltons was Erin, and the boys were Ben and Jason. Belle and Sebastian was the one with the little boy living in the Pyrennees with his mountain dog, Belle. And then there was White Horses....showing my age!

I've put the washing on, hung another load out to dry, stripped the bed and am about to clean the bathroom. Weekends - who says they're for resting??

Don't have the aged parent problem yet, although its fast approaching - and am glad the aged grandparent isn't my responsibility.

Erin that's it ....! Thanks .

Thanks Dove - just been on Saga web site and looks as though worth checking further 

Fridge has just satrted making a very strange noise, as it is usually more or less silent 

Got out manual, OH opened and closed doors, still making it.

Bunny ...
Is it the fan needs cleaned rosa? Quick Hoover . Ours does it and gets hot between the two doors (us style one) , stops when clean fan .

Mine is a sort of US type one - don't have a clue where fan is

Stopped now so what you said makes sense. 

Bacon sarnies on the way - homemade tomato ketchup - not brown sauce

Bunny ...
Fan is at the back of ours at the bottom so fluff, dirt, dog hairs will so congregate OH pulls fridge out , has a cover over it he unscrews . Feel gap between both doors if hot could be fan .

Homemade ketchup even better, easy to make ? I make chutney so guess similar way ?

Gave bottles of it to family members for Christmas


Bunny ...
Mmmm think I shall make some ,

My mother died last year aged 87 and my father died 4 years ago aged 86. Daddy was well before and it was unexpected but Mummy broke her hip and went downhill from then. It was a worry, but I have other brothers and sister in England. I still went over every 2 months or so when she was in a home.

Loved Champion the Wonder Horse when I was little, like the Lone Ranger and Wagon Train too and used to watch Little House on the Prairie with my daughter when she was little. They showed it in France too.

Back from shopping managed to procure a raspberry and white chocolate br??l??e tart, made locally, yum yum. Bacon sandwich first, beef stew for tea. I love Saturdays. Watching Italy play Scotland.

The Virginian? Sorry to resurrect the conversation, just thought on that one.
