    Sad days.
    Old people will have to die because Tories won't wear masks!
    When will they ever learn?
    The role out has failed amongst the young cos the Tories believed the pandemic was over!

    And this lot are going to deal with something really difficult like climate change? Their joking.

    That they will repeat the past again and again.
    Its about time the official scientists came out and said what's happening rather thinking about their career prospects.

    The problem is that in climate change and the Pandemic it is business interests that will be the inhibition in finding the best solution.

    Good morning all on that day when waking at 4.15 am and overthinking seems so overrated by 7.45. How does one look at things rationally without curling up into the fetal position and howling or turning into Bertie Booster? Maybe one day I'll select one of those options but not today you lying barstewards. Today I have 2 granddaughters to cherish, the attached to admire and Spurs on TV later. How do I keep the gels warm whilst opening all me winderz, obviously all fully masked, eh Saj? It isn't normal pal. Tempting as it is to excuse Elsie delivering a 6.3 due to the COVID booster yesterday it is too convenient. Her glory glory days are done. Tempus fugit and Elsie needs renegotiating. Oddly, 'tis sausages today.

    Thanks for that @dunelm. I use something similar but I'm not sure how robust they would be in an environment where I could go to a gym, then swim, then use a sauna, then shower and have breakfast, obs. Alternatively, I just don't bother whilst on holiday - if we go. Love the city scape and I hope you manage to secure the services of the removal people you desire.

    He is in a very bad way. Tested positive for FIV. Bad enough.
    But much worse, the xrays revealed that he has been shot. Probably some weeks ago. Am guessing this is when his voice first changed as one of the pellets is right by his voicebox. I got the impression it would be difficult for the vet and dangerous for the cat to try and remove it. The vet is keeping him for the day. We have to go to their clinic this evening to discuss options.

    @lindisfel it isn't the Tories per se just the bloc that Booster needs to keep on side - think opinionated Telegraph journos. The majority of his cabinet and MPs know he is useless as a PM (one can see it in their faces when asked to defend any of his policies or his behaviour generally) but will win them elections just now. Self first, party second, nation?? His basic speech is always nothing more than are you not entertained? which always ended in the same place as your concerns.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who skipped the light fandango along wif scool lessons.

    Blood sugars this morning were 5.5 on that scheming devious meter.

    Me and me’s have just got home from a routine ultrasound scan on my liver, the operative word is routine. The young rather attractive radiologist who performed the scan was partly deaf and relies on lip reading, a little difficult when the patient is
    A wearing a mask.
    B never answers a question with a straight answer.
    C has to have these scans at least once a year.
    Perhaps next time they will let me have a koffy…..
    Now with the climbing covid infection rate it is really important to remember the stays.

    Than
    Thank you @Krystyna23040, am trying to distract myself by doing some clearing up. We had a windstorm last night and things are out of place. No power. Some small damage. Also almost all the apples have been shaken out of the trees. Will take a while to pick them all up.

    Think this happened right at the start of the hunting season here, so now nearly a month ago. Poor Errant did have a slight limp for a few days, but he has had a longstanding problem with his shoulder and if he gets into a fight, he often limps for a short while afterwards. So I didn't realise it was more serious than that.

    Oh my goodness @SlimLizzy
    I am so sorry.
    I hope the vet can find a way round this.
    Maybe Errant can live with that bullet if the removal option is too dangerous?
    Errant has been through a lot in his life. And so have you with him.
    Hugs for all of you x

    Deceptively simple looking little infographic from here attached - weirdly where I want/ feel I need to be. Then poor old Ian scratches his head (and other parts). How the chuff do I afford 160 gms quality protein per day? eat that many without gert dollops of fat? just how many meals and snacks would that require? Who are these people? Actually, my ideal body weight is 172 to 178 pounds according to this. - I'm 162 pounds today. Not a chance in aitch eee ell of me wanting to be that heavy (unless I suddenly become able to play good standard team sports again) or eating that much protein. Don't tell Julie as her theory is I don't eat enough so my body is eating itself.:arghh:

    I did this from the end of my garden. And I photographed the yellow moon in the early hours of this morning, and placed the rest of my creative over it.

    I am dog tired, not sleeping. I have lost this picture twice because I fell asleep at the iPad...

    I had better post it before I fall asleep again...
