Hurrah!  Phone call from garage - they've fixed the car's electrical fault and within the price of the diagnostic check!  Phew!!!  Now I'd better call a cab and go and fetch it ...

Bushman - so sorry to hear your sad news.  Hopefully soon the happy memories will replace the sad ones ((hug))

Don't talk to me about idiots who don't know that their cars have indicators

Good morning all G'day Pat

Thinking of Chicky and family today ((hugs)) 

At last the sky is clear - I've been out in the garden in my jimjams and dressingown  and seen Venus, Mars and Jupiter shining brightly in the east .  Couldn't see Mercury 'cos it's further down towards the horizon and the hill's in the way, but I know it's there

I've also just managed to sort out the "quotes" thing. 

Why not have something where we can just click on the start of what we want to quote, and click on the end of what we want to quote?

What's the point of " un-quote"? Surely that suggests we're cancelling something?

It's all going to be sooooooooooo much better when the upgrade happens

Verdun - many years ago (about 25 actually) I was in hospital for a small op.  I was scheduled 'to go down' after lunch.  Then two patients who were scheduled before me were sent home (they had to get dressed and taxis were called - I found out later one woman had to get the taxi to take her to her husband's workplace on Felixstowe docks as he had the house key).   Fortunately they were able to 'slot me in'. 

It's not a new problem - if  emergencies come in and operating theatres are occupied something has to give. 

I don't know what the answer is.

We now have the most amazing blazing red sunset over the whole western-half of the sky.  We have a large picture window facing west and the whole room has been bathed in pink light

What is more, the rest of the sky is now blue - it's been thick cloud all day until about 40 mins ago when several  Tornadoes (from RAF Marham presumably) carried out some very noisy combat-type manoeuvres overhead for about 10 minutes - that seems to have scared the rainclouds away somehow
