    @Chronicle_Cat I just did some Googling on the Canadian Wheat Marketing Board out of my curious/skeptical mindset. VERY "interesting" info out there!!!?? ;)

    Thanks @ianpspurs @shelley262 and @ziggy_w for your comments. Readings a bit off most of the day but 2 hours post (very early) dinner was a respectable 5.3 so hopefully sorting themselves out. @shelley262 hope you got back safely from your mum’s.

    I just learned that there is a different kind of HiPo --
    HiPo -- apparently a nickname for a Highland Pony --
    and now I want one --
    with all that lovely elevation I think he would bring my #s down!

    Night everyone just back from freeman’s in Newcastle I haven’t been very well and what I thought was a cold they think it’s the dreaded rhinovirus back. Rhinovirus is a big pain in the bum I’ve had it 3 times this year :banghead: anyway I’m going to try and get a good nights sleep. Good night everyone

    Good call Emma...I attended a DESMOND course a couple of years ago...I'm still traumatised by it...one of the most useless ill informed courses I have ever attended...I couldn't believe what I was hearing...you've missed nothing.

    Morning...wide awake at 04:00 for no particular reason...not wanting to waste any time thought I'd do a spot of early morning banking...the wonderful TSB are 'updating' their online banking service (again)...after the last update to their online banking services it was impossible to use the site for several weeks despite their reassurances it would be completed over a weekend...so I won't be holding my breath...woke to a 5.6.

    Hi! It’s never “aired” in the UK to my knowledge but it has a bit of a cult following. I’ve been watching it for several years, obtained via the internet. The most recent ‘new era’ seasons were picked up by Netflix and I believe they now have all of it in their catalogue. Yeah I’m aware that Mr. Lahey recently died. Very sad :(

    Felicitations fellow prick-and-tellites. Today's story from the Jackanory meter was 5.3 which is not in my 5 year plan but is evidently all I deserve. Oh well, good result last night, nothing appears to have dropped off overnight and I have found my England rugby hoodie so things to work with there. Yep, those straws are being clutched tightly.

    4.7 greets me this morning. Along with the feeling a herd of elephants trampled all over me last night. Aching all over is something of an understatement. But, no rest for the wicked as they say so putting a smile on my face and hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday :)
