    NB.
    Apparently, checking T cells to Covid is not an easy test and assessment is difficult.

    I wasn't sure whether to post this art. Done for friends in Oz who work as advocates for domestic abuse situations.

    If the mods think it is inappropriate here then feel free to remove it.

    I will add that if you or someone you know suffer as a victim of abuse you can call Refuge on 0808 2000 247, you can also get immediate help and protection by dialling 999.

    It would be outrageous to see this as inappropriate IMHO. Thread is full on chat and Domestic Abuse must adversely impact so many things including bg. Good on you Sir.

    Such men didn't give way to self interest or not keeping their word.

    What kind of example are the current leaders setting the young?

    Have made something similar in the past, using spring onions, there should be sufficient butter incuded to produce delicious golden puddles.

    Fbg 6.1

    My daily painting for today.

    In Procreate. I did the same effect I did yesterday, but I didn't overstretch the coloured pixels from the black like I did yesterday. I did about two-thirds less stretching. This now meant when I made the swirly marble psychedelic effects, then I could reduce the opacity and there was still colour. Whereas yesterday's one that I overstretched the pixels, reducing the opacity produced muddy brown colours.

    So now I could put a picture underneath. I thought the mermaid face I did a week or so ago would work under this marble, psychedelic effect. I quite like it!!! It is unusual for me to really like something I have painted. I am usually always thinking I could do better.

    Here it is...

    Good Morning and 7.1 for me today. Probably the cocktail of Paracetamol and Ibuprofen I have been poisoning myself with. This face pain is not going away.

    Sorry no art I am in too much discomfort.

    Kiln dried logs arriving today, usually tipped on drive so I need to try a ignore this pain to get it stacked.

    Keep well,keep safe.

    6.2 this morning, looks set to be a nice day out so gardening it is.

    @Muddy Cyclist sorry to hear your pain is ongoing. I'm guessing you've tried the walk-in at the dental hospital?

    Good morning all. Autumn weather seems to be behaving nicely this week, let's see if the Brits can. All round sub-optimal but nothing to worry about day. Fbg 5.3 via Stabbo, weight 74.4 kgs (BMI 22.7), SPO2 97 and temp 36.1, 7 hrs 31 for an 85 sleep score - at a guess slight cold from a granddaughter (or 2) is responsible for the off data. Store cupboards being prepared for Lockdown: The sequel. 5 litres each of EVO, Mayonnaise and ACV, frozen chopped avo in freezer and Vit D on repeat order. Flu jab booked at local Pharmacy. I know where to acquire the next 1/2 pig. Tradies lined up to complete phase 2 to make the place sellable or bearable, MIL's move to within 5 mins walk of us and No 1 son well underway and grass growing. Hug for the tooth issues @Muddy Cyclist I used to so enjoy stacking logs. Spurs were rubbish, Aussies collapsed in cricket and Tom Brady scored a TD on his first drive for The Bucs. I made a gate out of a pallet so Sunday was ok. Toodle Pip Chums.
