Morning All.

What a busy lot of posters you have been.

I can remember Horace Batchelor in the distant past and Radio Luxembourg in my youth.

Nice pic Gary,- it's a bit ghostly round here, everyone must be at work or getting ready for the day, and of course Ernie aka Geoff has gone back to bed

I've not been to Luxembourg, did consider it last year, it looks lovely, lots of different areas, but isn't it a bit out of you way coming back from Spain Geoff?.

I'm please Sid has gone from SCD, he gave the impression that he didn't get on with Ola. It was a good show on Saturday.

Have a nice day

We had an earthquake in Lincolnshire about 4 years ago at about 1 am. The epicentre was a bout 20 miles from us. It was really frightening  Everything shook and as we were asleep, just for a second or two we were disorientated by it all, except my OH who slept through it. Our daughter was staying with us at the time, she came rushing through thinking it was a train derailed on the line at the end of the lane..Quite a lot of structural damage was done,not t our house but in the area, chimney pots etc. Not pleasant at all, so pleased you are okay Inkadog.

It's been a horrible day here, wet and miserable and now it's dark

Better go and get the veg on for tea, then will settle down to watch tv for an hour or two.

Thanks for posting the recipe for the soup. I have downloaded it and will be making some when I can get some celeriac, sounds delish. We love soup, so a new recipe is always appreciated.

Frank, your dinner sound lovely, as aways - I can almost smell it from here, a bit of beef and yorkshires takes some beating.

We are having roast pork, apple sauce, sage and onion stuffing, with various veg (to be decided when I go to garage to get them). pudding will be fruit of some sort. Try to keep off the sweet stuff.

Have a nice day folks.


What's the weather like in your area?

Nr Lincoln.

Light rain here, but no frost last night. The wind had changed direction to a westerly, so we'll get more rain, but it's better than the north/east wind we had yesterday, very chilly.

Good morning fellow halloweenies

Had a very late night last night I think, never sure what time it is when we alter the clocks. Could have been 2-30 or 1-30 am

I was going to alter my name but didn't want to confuse you anymore. I came across this cartoon, and thought it might be suitable



 She is a bit young though.

Not much planned today, just got to catch up with SCD and do a few jobs, then relax, it is a day of rest after all Now to get brekkie, Bacon, egg etc, Sunday treat.

Catch you all later.

Nr Lincoln.

Hard frost last night, but soon cleared this morning. It's been a bright cold day, and have seen several cars with snow on them.

Kate, sorry you'r still feeling poorly, these pesky bugs seem to take some shaking off.

We had cavity wall insulation years ago, rock wool I believe. OH said it was the best thing we did, made to house feel a lot warmer. Yes they do make a racket when they do it, but it's worth it.

Must go and get ready for evening out, SIL is rather eccentric so anything could happen and probably will

Hi you mad lot. I thought I had got the wrong forum!

It's great to hear all the news, whatever it is. about kids, animals and general goings on, it gives me a laugh and boy do we need a laugh some days.

Well Ernie/Geoff don't read this, it will only upset you. I have seen my first C****** tree of the season, fully decorated in someones window. How sad is that..

I have bought my treats for trick or treat, I usually get caught out if any one calls and I am determined to be ready this year, I bet nobody comes If they don't no doubt OH will snaffle them, he is partial to sweets of all kind.

We are out this evening to SIL with posh cat, for a meal, so don't know what it will be. I'm no fussy I won't have to cook which is a nice change.

Becks. Do you take Jess trick or treating? or is she too young as yet. We don't have many children round here, mainly oldies and  young couples without children,

Have a good evening everyone.
