Flo, what were you going to do with those mushrooms?

I think I read somewhere that the Shamen in Lapland used to eat those mushrooms and that's when they saw reindeer flying. The ordinary people weren't allowed to eat the magic mushrooms so they'd look for the yellow snow where the shaman had been so they could go on a trip too.

Good morning Ghosties and ghoolies,

Lovely day here and going for a walk in the woods later with my daughter and grand-children. In the middle of making a big pan of soup from turkey legs for when we get home.

Poor Americans, it's going to take a lot of clearing up.

We weren't affected too much by Michael Fish's big storm but was chaos a few years later here in Cornwall. We didn't have electricty for 6 days as there are only two houses down our lane so we weren't a priority. A tree branch had fallen on the power lines to our houses. We eventually had a team from Ireland mending our line as so many lines were down the local work force couldn't cope. In a way it wasn't too bad although we did go round to a friends in the evening who had a rayburn. we later got a second hand oil-fired one ourselves. Very expensive to run and have not turned it on yet but at least if the electricty fails I'd be able to cook and keep warm.

Good morning fellow ghouls and ghoolies,

Glad everyone seems fine this morning and Inka has not been washed away.

There certainly seems to be some extreme weather around the world lately. Are the Mayan Prophecies starting to happen?

I'm devastated that Downton finishes next week. Sunday nights won't be the same. Perhaps there will be a Christmas special.

Good morning all. Get better soon all you poorly forkers.

Really cold with a north wind. Ideal haunting weather.

Love your fungi photos, Flo.

Thanks for your entry, Geoff.

Gary's upcycling ideas are impressive but I don't think he can enter the competition. Ideas have to be original.

First prize is some video tapes to put your ideas in practice.

Kev seems very funny, Geoff, should be a good night.

Oh Jo, hope it gets a bit warmer. The whole house gets upset when a job like that is tackled.

Thanks for identifying the fungus, Gary. That looks like the one.

There must be a use for all those video tapes. Using the tape as bird scarers, tying things up! How about making that today's competition.  The most original use.

Good morning all. Really cold here.

I wonder if Gary could identify this fungus. Took this photo this morning. Strangely in spite of the damp weather not too many toadstools about. I'm usually picking lots of field mushrooms by now but not a sign this year.

Good morning all.

Poor Jo, hope you feel better soon.

Hope you've put your speedos away, Geoff. Looking forward to some gossip when she gets home.

It's been chaos in Cornwall since Kate came down. Floods on Wednesday. Mysterious bangs on Thursday and yesterday the centre of Truro was abandoned because an unitentified package was found in a bank. They sent for the Bomb Squad but couldn't get the robot into the bank so sent a poor chap dressed like the Michelin Man in. He came out with a camera that had been put inside an ice  cream carton and taped up, that someone was posting on and left it in the bank.

Lovely day here. I'm just waiting for the dew to dry off the caravan then I'll put the cover on for the winter.

All the shrubs and trees have gone mad this year and tempted to cut some back although I know you are supposed to wait until the spring.
