I don't think we can win with middle east wars. If we go in we are the baddies. If we don't we get blamed for doing nothing. Hospitals and Red Cross used to be respected and not fired on, but this lot play by no rules that civilised people would. That's probably the wrong word. Civilised people would not wage war anyway.

 I wish all people of all religions,  " Peace on Earth" not just this month, but for years to come.

I am glad it is not a reflection of you.

I was going to recommend something for a bad back.

So you don't think this is just a scam to get a mailing list together so that they can bombard us with emails and dubious offers?

My mums old cat Tiger used to try and hide in the caravan when she was getting it ready for holidays.  He would be left with a neighbour feeding him. Apparently he used to si on the path and howl while we were away, as soon as we were back he would disappear for three days, before forgiving us and coming home.

 My friends Jack Russell in Perth used to greet me every time I went to visit like a long lost friend. We went for walks together on the beach, and she got  spoilt at the beach cafe.  She would move in to my bedroom while I was there and sleep with me. As soon as I started packing the suitcase she would start sulking, and refused to even look at me when the taxi came.

Interesting shadow in the reflection on the ball(nose)

Garden gnome?

Anyone know this plant?

Or even Cyperus papyrus. It likes lots of water. Makes a good house plant for a bathroom.

Anyone know this plant?

Looks like Papyrus species but could be Cyperus.

When I was courting the first husband, I used to arrive home late and go to bed and find it prewarmed. The Colsation used to be on it if it was vacant and would slink downstairs to the sofa when I came in.  One particular night I was very late, and the dog was still there. When  I told her to shift, she growled at me, obviously decided it was hers for the night.

I'm saving the Henrys wives series. I'm currently binging on the box set of Quantico. I have to watch it in batches otherwise I lose the thread.

We're watching the Royal variety performance. The soldier doing the card trick made me choke a bit. I'm not surprised that him and the bomb squad got a standing ovation. Maybe I'm just overtired and need to go to bed. I think I picked up a virus from the in laws at the weekend. Either that or I've not recovered from the party going on  beneath our hotel room until one  on Sunday  morning.  We did get the hotel bill cut in half when we checked out Sunday.

Still awake here too. Likely to be for some time. No one told us when we booked this quiet hotel room that the Saturday night disco directly beneath our room goes on until 1am.
