    characters in @OldButBold posted video with the boom box are called J and Silent Bob in a film called “Dogma” - required viewing for anyone wishing to brush up on all things ecumenical.

    Just read the synopsis. Highly unlikely to be ecumenical - can't imagine Catholics and Baptists working on that project together. Don't even think about the (real) Menonites - how would they ever know? (real soft spot for the Amish me. Loved the barn raising in Witness)

    It's sometimes very difficult to choose the correct rating there just isn't the one that you would like to express. I read with interest and attentiveness all your posts on this thread, seldom venture to other threads, I feel your passion, Please keep it up.

    Thank you for seeing me as an always balanced person. I like to think I have a sensible outlook and try to be nonjudgmental and respectful of others opinions and beliefs. However as Mrs MC will tell you I can put my foot in it big time and I am known for my want to be a conspiracy theorist.

    I have done the same, I put a babygem base, a broccoli base and a savoy cabbage base. So far I can just see the baby gem sprouting but they are very tiny at present, I've also some tiny purple cabbage sprouts on the cabbage core - why purple I haven't a clue. Waiting patiently to see what happens, maybe I will try some carrot tops next. Used to grow them as a child didn't realise you could eat them. Same with swede tops we always just throw them away but might give these a try too. I've had had them grow inadvertently before when they were left in a cupboard and forgotten about.

    Interesting days ahead.

    Thank you for the painting of the Pier between Roker and Seaburn in Sunderland, recognised it immediately. Loved your other watercolour as well. You are very talented.

    @Muddy Cyclist your painting reminded me of a post card I once bought of the sun glinting though spruce trees. I liked it very much.

    Well mine hasn't gone down this morning, still 5.6 hoping it is a phase but starting to think my next HbA1c if that ever occurs will be higher than I was anticipating. Was regularly seeing low 4s to 5s during the day, now it seems to be low 5s to 6s. Which is still ok but I think I have lost my mojo a bit. Motivation not great at the moment.

    @OldButBold, great that you are improving - amazed that you have been able to post even through the trying times you have experienced but so appreciative that you have been able to do so. You are inspiring.

    Love this...



    Thank you Ryhia, can't say I feel inspiring outside of the notion that I refuse to let the darkness overwhelm me ;) Take care

    I wish I could put you in touch with two of my friends, one who works with Amish craftsmen for harness and carts, the other who drives for local Amish farmers. He hasn't participated in any barn raisings that I know of, but his house is Amish-built.

    7.3 this Monday morning. Yesterday I had a nice long walk along my street, felt like I was on Mick Jagger's cloud --
    "It was so very quiet and peaceful, there was nobody, not a soul around."

    Agree..as President Obama says we have to at least look, because they might just have a point.
    THEN make up or own minds.
    Too many sheep in this world, sadly.

    Like your style, give me a man of passion then a fence Sitter, Any day of the week.:)

    The only way to never make a bad decision is not to make any.
    We won't get everything right, but we should
    Look, evaluate, act with clarity, and have passion.

    The option to not investigate and make decisions for ourselves just leaves us at the mercy of others, who may not have our best interests at heart..T2D EATWELL advise ring a bell ;)

    When I walked into the grocery store yesterday I was confronted by row upon row of chocolate Easter rabbits. It was as if Alfred Hitchcock had done a remake and called it "THE BUNNIES".

    @Debandez and @DJC3 Thank you for posting about the Queen's speech. I was able to find the video and watch it.

    I wonder if it is also the stress and the uncertainty of all this that is helping to raise our blood sugars
