Apparently gravel is also a good burglar deterrent as they can't approach the house quietly - neighbours will hear them crunching around on the gravel driveway

Ok, bearable ... but is that guaranteed?  Might it go up to 23, or 24 or even more?

Morning Fg Chicky and Hosta and any others I've missed - I didn't see the MS programme either, but hope that help materialises.  My friend's daughter was diagnosed with it while at uni .

We watched a brilliant programme on Egyptian history last night - but watching on tv is fine for me - can't do the heat - it must be my Viking ancestry

Good morning all   G'day Pat and Ginger

Glad you're feeling better Hosta  and the same to Wonky and Steve - hope DD is on the mend too and all other poorly people.  Ditto poorly cars!

I'll try that link again

but if it doesn't work I'll explain ... the day after New Years Day a woman was walking her dog near the cliff tops on the Norfolk coast.  The dog went over the edge for something (it's a sloping, not a steep cliff) but for some reason the dog wouldn't/couldn't get back up so the woman decided to slide down to the dog - however there had been a sort of landslide of mud earlier and she tried to walk across it and sank into It like a quicksand.  If she had not laid out flat she would have disappeared in the mud, but she couldn't get up.  It was cold and wet and she was becoming hypothermic before a walker heard her shouts - even then she was so covered with mud that he couldn't see her - just her dog that was standing on her.  She was rescued by helicopter and coastguard.  She's so lucky that walker found her.

Clari - be careful when you go sliding down banks - slightly bigger bank I know, but this woman would have died if someone hadn't heard her
