Hello Forkers December

There is always some light at the end of the tunnel [ even if it is only a train coming the other way ]

Wandering round the garden just now, when 4 ducks flew off the pond, not had any for a while, so it was rather joyous.

Came in and opened todays cards and there was one from Turkey. I don't know anyone there, but I noticed it had been redirected via MSF. I can only assume it was from someone in the hospital in Syria. How amazing that anyone going through the traumas that they are, would take the time to wish me the best, for a festivity they don't even celebrate. Despite all the s##t, there is still so much goodness, it is just sometimes hard to see it.

My mood has been elevated so much by these two simple things.

Can't remember who asked, but we are going to Grenada.

Hi all.

Decision made that we will now stay at home for Christmas, rather than OHs sister, OH actually seems very happy about it!

Getting closer to departure for the sun, so hoping I can keep going till then.

Hope everyone gets everything done that needs doing.

Just checking in. Nothing very positive to say, so I won't bother.

Enjoying reading your "noodlings"

A joke from one of his thought for the day pieces.

A jewish lady walking home at night

A man jumps out of the hedge, opens his coat wide and flashes at her.

" Call that a lining" she says.

On yet another day from hell, it raised a smile here.

Mount Keen maybe an easy Munro fg, but a long walk in up Glen Tanar, as I remember it. Should have cycled the first bit.

I really really did not want to reply to this thread, but there are things which I think are alarming and potentially dangerous for folks.

The stomach does not regulate the bodies acidity, it is full of acid, but control of acidity is by the kidneys.

Anyone trying to control blood sugar with cinnamon, is a fool and potentially putting their health at risk.

With regard to seed sowing, don't you think you are unnecessarily complicating things. Seed germination is about replicating the conditions found in the wild, in the places where that plant naturally grows.

Hi all.

Thought I would just drop in to say hello.

Can't get my head around stuff at the moment. I know most of them are things I have no control over, but I can't seem to stop worrying about them.

Love to everyone who has their own problems and thanks for the messages of support.
