Morning everyone! Muriel, do you use a lot of salt? That will raise the blood pressure.

Hope everyone had a great week-end.

Posting this here, as we need prayers for Doris, and Jan/Mekos's son please.

This is a message Jan posted on the sweet interruptions thread! Scroll to the bottom to see her post.

Everyone please say your prayers for Doris and Jan's son?

For those of you who know Doris Klein aka Kareoke she has had a heart attack and need our prayers badly. Please remember this beautiful lady as you pray.
I am afraid my head is just not screwed on good right now, Jaye the problem I was having and thought was for my friend and cousin, well it turns out NOT. My baby son had a wreck on his motorcycle last week, and was thrown off and hit his head bad and woke up in the trauma department in the hospital. He wanted to call to get someone to go get his motorcycle and they wouldn't give him a phone so he walked out of the hospital and is not getting treated. I have no idea as to how he really is.
He is hard headed but he doesn't mean any harm. He just does stuff the wrong way. So I had not even checked in till now and I am going to bed and try to get some sleep. But I love you all and pray God's Hand of protection and love to you all.

Lucy, I hope you had a wonderful anniversary dinner! DH took me out for my birthday. We have a tradition, and we've gone to the same place for the last 11 years! It's our favorite Italian restaurant, and our favorite waiter (along with the entire room) sings "Happy Birthday", and the owner buys us dessert (their exquisite Tiramisu), one to eat there, with a candle in it, of course, and one to take home for later. I had the Zuppa di Mare (clams, scallops, calamari, mussels and shrimp over linguini in a very delicate white wine sauce), and Tom had Chicken Marsala, his favorite. It would not seem like my birthday if we didn't go to Al Fresco. Their Tiramisu is lovely, and I make a darned good Tiramisu myself, so that's a real compliment!

Group hug Group hug Group hug for all that need them!

Love to all,

Bonnie

Dear Bonnie, that sounds delicious! Sarah loves Italian food I have my own pasta maker as she likes homemade pasta, and linguini with clams! My nieces love Cannelloni or of course homemade pizza. My father and I are Lasagne lovers! I often make it for them, and leave the sweet for Sarah to make as she is better at sweets than I am.
I do hope you are both well/
Regards.
Neil.

This is so true and so clever, it is quite unreal!
I do hope you enjoy it!

In the queue at the shop, the cashier told the older woman that she should bring her own bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.
The woman apologised to him and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day."
The cashier responded, "That's our problem today. The former generation did not care enough to save our environment!"
He was right, that generation didn't have the green thing in its day.
Back then, they returned their milk bottles, lemonade bottles and beer bottles to the shop. The shop sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But they didn't have the green thing back in that customer's day.
In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn't have an escalator in every shop and office building. They walked to the grocery shop and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two miles.

But she was right. They didn't have the green thing in her day.

Back then, they washed the baby's nappies (Diapers), because they didn't have the throw-away kind. They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts - wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.
But that old lady is right, they didn't have the green thing back in her day.
Back then, they had one TV, or radio, in the house - not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief, not a screen the size of a Country. In the kitchen, they blended and stirred by hand because they didn't have electric machines to do everything for them.
When they packaged a fragile item to send in by post, they used a screwed up old newspaper to cushion it, not polystyrene or plastic bubble wrap.
Back then, they didn't fire up an engine and burn petrol just to cut the lawn. They used a push mower that ran on human power. They exercised by working so they didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.
But she's right, they didn't have the green thing back then.
They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water. They refilled their writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and they replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.
But they didn't have the green thing back then.
Back then, people took the tram or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or rode in the school bus instead of turning their mums into a 24-hour taxi service. They had one electrical socket in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And they didn't need a
computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest Pizza Hut.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful the old folks were just because they didn't have the green thing back then?

Good points Neil. I didn't even fill my pen when starting out, had to dip it in the ink for a year until we wrote well enough to be allowed to use a fountain pen.

I was a bit disappointed in the restaurant where we have gone many times, although not during the last year. Granted I usually don't eat seafood so had breaded medallions of veal. Short on the veal & long on capelli sp? noodles. Caper butter with sauce (ok) & grape tomatos. I'm not big on pasta, would have prefered rice. Nice cup of clam chowder (New England style), Rich small chocolate cake with ice cream at the side.

John had haddock with potatoes & a bed of tomatoes & spinach. Plus the chowder & same dessert.
Now in this area you expect sea food but the choice of beef dishes were at 8oz which amount I can no longer eat. Only 2 dessert choices & the berry bread pudding sounded too much starch for my food allowance. I don't know if new ownership, different chef or too early in the season. It is alongside a tidal river so got to watch an egret hunting for its dinner.

Neil: Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing too true...yet many of the ways I still DO reflect: cut up some corrigated earlier to shread for the compost when I have time later, and chopped some veggie waste that is already mixed in. I do regret that I cannot complete the task just now because I must go (yes, by car) to the local grocer's as dawg is out of food which I will cook this evening when the 'off peak' period starts after 7. I did make some lemonade from scratch in a recyclable plastic jug though.

But Neil..."Pizza HUT"?...yeech! Much more attractive to make it at home. (I have a great infuence too because a very close girlfriend went to work on a cruise ship back in the early 70s. She married a crewmember from Italia before they even spoke each others language (verbally at least) and brought him here. They lived with us until they could get work and a new apartment and he could REALLY COOK!

I stood in stunned silence the first time he picked up my large flour cannister and dumped the entire contents directly onto my counter. Took a deep breath when he dug a hole in the center and began to crack eggs into it; drew another when the mess was balled up with no real mess a'tal, and to spare details will just say that we enjoyed many more of Franco's meals thereafter. Whilst his culturally different trainings did not leave my girlfriend with an acceptable marriage partnership in the end, good meals were had by all while it lasted!

Dear Lucy, I am sorry the Restaurant was not by the sounds of it too good! That is such a shame when that happens to what is a special meal! I am afraid if your Husband wants proper Fish & Chips, then he must come here for it! 8oz steak, whenever we see the TV programs about America they are always eating 64oz ones! Rolling on the floor laughing

Dear Jamie, it is such a shame that the traditional Sunday Dinner is being replaced with 'Pizza Hut," as the youngsters like it! To see the family across the road, get all their Sunday Dinner delivered by this disgusting place, breaks my heart! Who on earth wants to eat that for Dinner, let alone at all! As you may know I love making bread, pizza dough and pasta by hand, that is the only way to do it!
Maybe they have a satellite now that you get onto and it does it for you! Rolling on the floor laughing
Regards to you both and Love to Inky!
Neil.
