Turfed Lawn

There is a lesson for all there and I also feel very angry that this should happen. I employ people to do work for me although my way is to make sure they are local. they have addresses in my local area that I can contact, make sure there are both land line and mobile numbers to contact, get a written quote on headed paper though I will pay cash for a job well done. This has resulted in work properly done to my requirements, a good tradesman does not object to you inspecting the work. Granddad has been ripped off, the clues were there to see and he should have acted, he will not see his money unless he goes through a long process and those kind of jobbers just vanish or go bankrupted. The cheapest quote is not always the best bargain is worth remembering.

Stockton on Tees, if this keeps up it will be Stockton in the Tees. The coastal front appears to be directly above us and quite cloudy though warm. We would love some of that sun Verdun is basking in, I may even consider moving to Cornwall that is if they could afford me. I do not charge much for my visitations could probably do something with the fish and Scones though feeding the grockles may take a while.

Thank you all for the good wishes, am back on my feet not quite running yet a steady sort of half gallop or trot as we say. I never dwell on things as reading various boards there are so many people in a worse situation, I count my blessings.

DD my comments on SCD may be somewhat acid until the dross has gone, look at the feet is my way.

Hazel, All OK, my motto has always been if you can fix it do so, if you cannot, leave it to those who can and do not worry about it. The bad news you hear about the NHS I only ever had the best care and treatment, wonderful people doing a brilliant job.

P.P. if this keeps up you may need a few humps as life preservers as we vanish into the Great lake the UK will become. I am just over 100 feet above Sea Level here, it usually all goes down hill, now I am beginning to worry.


Strictly 2016

Posted: 04/09/2016 at 11:48

Watched the start up last night of Strictly and from the very beginning my heart sank. Over the years the show bizz bit has overtaken the actual Dance although most years the dance won in the end. This year my forebodings tell me dance will lose, it will become much like the American dancing with the stars all show and little substance.

I ask where did they get those so called Celebs, who are they, what have they done. My feelings are at the moment leave it off until week five or six, they may have got rid of some of the dross by then. Once again I say poor Anton, they never load the scales in his favour.

Rain all night a pond where no pond ever existed still raining though not quite as heavy, I ask what has Stockton done to upset the Deity, cannot get on my knees they creak a bit but the person doing the Rain Dance please stop.

DD, have just manage to catch up with what I missed whilst in the care of the NHS bless them. Sorry to read the effect it has on your life, never happened to me though I did see friends part and not all in a friendly way. My one piece of advice is take control of your own life, you are the one in charge now so steer in the direction you and only you wish to go. It will be hard at first though in time all things sort themselves out, you will reach the place you want to be. Take care DD my thoughts are with you.

"Oh me oh my"  Rain from waking this morning until now and looks set for the rest of the night. The clouds rush from the Atlantic across P.P's. lake over the Pennines and stop as they hit our coastal front off the North Sea. Any one watching the weather map this year must think it follows rail lines straight to us. Global warming??? what happened to summer.


Things I don't get

I am with you Ladybird and hate the thought of animals being destroyed in a random way, it comes down to money. Had the Government put a quarter of the compensation they have to pay Farmers into Veterinary research there may well have been at least a working vaccine by now. Some Farmers believe in culling others do not, as with all these things there are many schools of thought and no one knows the answer.
