    Good morning to you all, it's a sunny morning with a cloudless sky after a frost, I will go out for a walk and buy a bottle of mulled wine to take with me to Russia, they don't have it there, apart from that I may take a video if something interesting shows up...... have a good Wednesday.....

    Weatherwise it's a beautiful day with a high of 74! Today I have my mammogram, no big deal except that it's a pain in the butt.

    It's a late afternoon appt and it's a traffic nightmare to get to and even find. I was there for my MRI but I'll have to take a look at driving directions again.

    Good morning I am awake but not entirely with it [​IMG] I am going to meet up with my daughter Caroline for lunch at the old library in Worcester, which is now a museum and cafe since the new "Hive" one has opened......there is evidently an art exhibition there, not sure which artists though.

    I guess I need to go and wake up properly and have a shower ................. have a good Thursday.....

    Good morning and Happy Thursday. Still nice weatherwise with a high of 72. Today I have PT again and although I like the massage and it's helped tremendously..the exercises are mind numbing boring, lol.

    Today I have to rush home instead of stopping at Trader Joe's which is just across the street because I have a plumbing company coming out at 11 to give me an estimate on my leaking hot water heater. [​IMG]

    Have a good day everyone!

    Well it was a pipe flex ...cost $280 for new pipe.

    Then I get a call from Fresno Imaging saying my mammogram is cancelled again and rescheduled for Saturday.

    Only good thing today was PT...arm and shoulder are feeling better.

    Good morning friends, it's 7:30 am here and we have a tinge of red in the sky, so a shepherds morning I guess......... I am driving to Thornbury, a small town near Bristol later this morning, to catch up with my French friend Laurence, who has been in France with her husband renovating a house they bought there last year, she fell off her bike while in France and evidently injured her hands badly.


    I will go and wake up now [​IMG]enjoy your day .....

    Good morning everyone...well third time is the charm and my mammogram is on for today at 11:30.

    I'll have to leave a lot earlier because it's in one of those medical plazas that are tricky to get to...it's all straightforward until the last block, then if you miss it you're driving all over because there are no left turns or u turns...I think the drive is stressing me out more than the mammogram...in fact I know it is, lol.

    It's in the same place as my MRI was but I'm still anxious.

    Good day to you all, well it's evening here after a damp cold drizzly day, though I have been out for a walk and some shopping.............. I had a lovely day with Laurence yesterday and because it was a sunny one, we decided to go for a short drive into Thornbury a nearby town, (L lives in a country area about 3 miles away). We then walked for around 6 hours apart from stopping off at a country pub for lunch.........we were talking all the time about everything under the sun [​IMG]

    I think I mentioned L had injured her hands, they together with her wrists are both in splint/casts, so she is helpless, it was an interesting experience helping her on with her coat, buckling her seatbelt in the car, plus cutting up her food and partially feeding her in the pub.

    When I eventually returned home Caroline called in on her way home from her Oxford university course, which had been all about suicide, so we discussed that for a while.................... then she went with Cathy to stay with friends near London.................tonight they are treating Cathy to a surprise pre-birthday (it's on the 19th) treat at a London restaurant, where you dine in complete darkness london http://london.danslenoir.com/en/home/ there is a branch in St.Petersburg where the waiters are actually blind, but Lisa doesn't fancy it [​IMG] most of the reviews are positive, but I am not sure how I would feel about the experience [​IMG]


    Here are a few watercolours of the "Lake District" in the north of England...

    I can't recall where this one came from, it was amongst my saved images, it's certainly not the Lake District [​IMG]

    I couldn't possibly say [​IMG] ........... seriously my partner Lisa lives in St.Petersburg @Gloria Mitchell , we met on the internet some 15 years ago, so I spend about 5 months of the year with her there, plus Lisa has a married daughter with 3 children living near London, who she visits twice a year, and Lisa and I also go on vacations together from the UK ............. some of my history is here http://www.seniorsonly.club/threads/my-russian-experiences.1972/

    Good evening from a cool dark Worcester, a frost is forecast tonight and tomorrow will be cooler at 6c (42f) ................. my day went well, it was a cool sunny one so I walked to Aldi and bought the first batch of cheese, all the Double gloucester they had, so will go back tomorrow when they will hopefully have restocked. While I was in Aldi they observed the two minutes silence at 11 am for Remembrance Sunday, everything stopped and their was complete silence, I must admit I was moved to tears the war and the loss of so many innocent lives, hit me hard. I wouldn't normally even be aware of the time or the two minutes silence, so it was a valuable experience for me.

    I went out again this afternoon and took the dog for a walk, which we both enjoyed....

    Cathy came back an hour ago from her weekend in London, the dark restaurant was an amazing once in lifetime experience for her and her friend, but Caroline had a mini panic attack at the start, and was consoled by one of the waiters who said it happens sometimes.
    Eventually Caroline settled and really enjoyed the evening .................. because there are no distractions, you talk much more and food takes on a different dimension because of your heightened senses .............you guess what you ate at the end of the meal and they give you a photo of the dinner plate that was served to you........all the waiters are registered blind and extremely helpful and caring, and the food was wonderful (they all choose the Vegetarian menu)

    That's interesting! I don't know how I would feel....isn't part of the enjoyment of food also visual?

    Yes I would agree @Chrissy Cross but evidently most people who have been give a positive review .... though it's not for everyone I guess, my daughters and their friend loved it. I think the heightened sense of taste, texture and scent, give you a very different experience of a restaurant and the food. There is one in St.Petersburg but I know Lisa would never go, so I doubt I will ever get try it out.... ;)

    Here is a video of the experience...

    That was interesting. I'd try it but wouldn't want kangaroo or ostrich.

    I'm also surprised they don't knock over their bottles and glasses.
