HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all

just fed my Christmas cake, now its my turn  .....but maybe not with brandy at this hour

3 deer looking in at me this morning when I opened the curtains - Mr and his mini hareem - practically had their noses against the glass.

((hugs)) for Pdoc. You will be able to provide great support for your SiL - sometimes hospital speak needs a translator/interpreter.  Really hope Mrs Pdoc's bracelet turns up too - calling in the metal detectors sounds like a great idea.  I was very upset when I lost one of the earrings I wore on our wedding day .....still have the other one, but it doesn't get much wear (not trendy enough to pull off the odd earring look).  Keep reading, even if you're not up to posting ......we know you're there.

My favourite bit of the GW mag is from Mr T too ....but I always read it first.  Instant gratification in tune with modern society.  Hate phones at dinner tables too .....but did spend the day marvelling at how one tiny device could let me chat on here, chat for real, buy some Christmas pressies, show me how to get from Kings Cross to my meeting, play my music, while away some minutes with candy crush () take a couple of cheeky photos, and give me the address to write on the birthday card I needed to send.  In the old days I would have needed a suitcase to carry around everything I needed to accomplish that.  If only people could learn to put them away occasionally .....

I'm on a train heading for the big smoke, and the sun hasn't even peeped over the horizon yet :O. Bit of a shock to the system - but nice, in a way, to be returning to some sort of normality

Bush fires must be a constant worry Pat - your OH is a hero for the work he does

Is this mahonia?

I agree it is not mahonia - does it flower at all?  I'm not sure what it is from just the leaves ....but I am sure others will be along soon who will know
