    Yes @Chrissy Cross I guess you are ultra careful ;) my daughters experience was that it was ultimately a lot of fun, and an interesting experience, but you would only really go once, because of that, most of the time we go to a restaurant simply to eat and enjoy the company and the environment, I guess you don't know until you go, I could well not like it all......

    Good morning it's 7:00 am or it was when I started, on a bright frosty morning, I am going cheese hunting again today and will begin my packing ready for an early leave on Wednesday.
    Have a great start to a brand new week.......

    LOL...it's not for me either CC....I read the reviews and I'm not keen on groping for my food... but you know ostrich and kangaroo are lovely if you like red meat...it's too gamey for me, but I still have some in my freezer from when my o/h ate meat but he doesn't now that he's a pescatarian so maybe I should chuck it away

    Anyway Good morning all..

    I only slept a few hours but this morning it's sunny, albeit freezing cold..

    I had a real problem with my computer yesterday it wouldn't upload anything... no pictures to any forums at all... not loading pages, and those it did it was taking an age to load... I thought I must have got a bug somewhere, so I had to leave a note for my o/h to look at it when he got up for work if he had time...and bless him he did, and it seems to be running ok again this morning, so hopefully it'll be ok..

    I'm supposed to be at the dentist this morning but I won't be able to go, so when they open at 9am I'll ring and change my appointment...

    Hope you get all your cheese ration stocked up @Terry Page

    Have a good day all

    Well I hunted down as much cheese as I could at Aldi and topped up from Asda, I have just done a trial packing and returned it to the fridge until tomorrow night, I have split my packing between two suitcases for the hold this time, to make them more manageable.

    I also serviced our elderly gas central heating boiler this morning, which is 30 years old this next January, the only thing that ever goes wrong is the thermocouple which lasts about 4 years and when it goes the pilot light won't stay on. I replace it every 3 years to make sure it doesn't fail while I am away, it only costs $5


    The right hand copper piece . I am sure you are interested [​IMG]

    Ive never even seen my furnace, it's it the attic I think. I hardly use it though...it's as old as the house, 18yrs.

    My hot water heater is in the garage and I just spent $280 to have a flex pipe replaced.


    That's a lot of cheese! But...Yum.

    Good evening to you all, I have been busy sorting out odds and ends before I leave early tomorrow morning, I will be in Russia around 20 hours from now, assuming all goes to plan, I am looking forward to being with Lisa until virtually the end of the year 28th December....

    Apart from the cheese which is residing in the fridge until the last minute, all packed I checked in and printed my boarding pass this morning, so I can relax now until tomorrow.

    I hope your days are going/went well..... [​IMG]

    This is Florida???????? This morning it was 49 degrees! It was 32 in Denver, CO and the area, but I'd expect that there. Here.....NO! Funny, each year, during November and into Dec., Jan and Feb, we complain about how cold it can get here. And, there are folks that absolutely love this cold air. if we lived in Colorado or Wyoming, we expect this temp, but Florida?

    Good afternoon from my second home here in St.Petersburg, though I spend more time here than in the UK [​IMG]
    It's a grey damp day at 40f with some snow flurries at times, Lisa is working so I am settling in and sorting out my clutter[​IMG]

    The taxi ride last night took longer than expected, because having booked a taxi at the airport kiosk, when it arrived Lisa knew he wasn't a Russian by his look and accent, he was from the Caucasus region, he was friendly so everything was fine, but halfway to Lisa's apartment we were flagged down by the police.

    The driver became nervous, and after a 10 minute conversation with the police he told us he was being detained by them and rang his son to come and collect us.................after another 15 minutes our driver returned, rang and cancelled his son coming and took us the rest of the journey............ he had obviously paid the police some money for his release, this is common practice here, because the police are so poorly paid they rely on bribes for their income.

    In the baggage reclaim, they now employ a cute looking black and white spaniel as a sniffer dog, who jumps on the belt and examines every suitcase, it was fun to watch and everyone was taking photos, I took a quick one but it's obscured.

    My suitcases were also x-rayed on the way out, and I had to explain that the strange images were cheese, so I was allowed to go through [​IMG].................. all is well that ends well [​IMG]

    Enjoy your Thursday [​IMG]

    Good afternoon to you all, I am still a bit out of tune with the time so tending to get up on UK time, 3 hours late [​IMG] it's 1:30 pm at the moment.
    Lisa is at the university again so I have just made a chilli bean casserole for dinner and bought a bottle of monks wine to go with it [​IMG]

    Enjoy your Friday and the weekend...

    Good Morning (5).gif Be-Awesome-1024x683.jpg

    I'm really looking forward to today. In a few hours I'm going shopping for my childrens and grandchildrens Christmas tree ornaments.

    I have been buying ornaments for them since each of my daughters married and for each grandchild every Christmas since they were born. I buy a joint ornament for each married couple and individual ones for the grandkids. I used to give them to everyone at Christmas...but now I give them out on Thanksgiving so they can hang them on the Christmas tree which my daughters pretty much put up now right after Thanksgiving.

    It has been fun through the years checking their trees out and seeing so many ornaments that I picked out for each of them...and knowing that as my grandkids get out on their own whether alone or in marriage...they will have a collection or ornaments to start off their first Christmas trees with. :)

    My oldest grandchild has 20 ornaments from us now...while our youngest will get his second this Thanksgiving.

    Shopping for everyone's Christmas ornaments is my favorite shopping day.

    Be blessed everyone and may you all find joy in some of your favorite things today too. :)

    Good morning! High of only 64 today and some rain, Yay. I have an early morning drs appt. and hopefully I'll get the results of my mammogram..thinking everything is ok since I had it last Saturday and nobody has called me.

    Had my oil changed yesterday so I feel better about my drive to my daughter's on Tuesday. Much more expensive here but lesson learned....

    Have a great day everyone!

    Good morning, all.
    @Terry Page , your pictures this morning are filled with pure joy. :D

    For some reason, the picture of the lady holding at the window resembles Lisa to me.

    Good morning friends although it's 12:30 pm here, so I guess it's really good afternoon [​IMG] it's another grey dreary day and cold out, so apart from popping to the corner shop, for essential items like wine and beer [​IMG][​IMG] we are staying indoors... we will spend more time on the Mexico vacation project, though the plan for the next summer one is looming, because Lisa's daughter Katya wants our dates, so she can plan her time away with her husband James next July.

    We had planned on coming to the US for the next two summer vacations, Massachusetts 2018 and California 2019, but the deepening cold war and visa unavailability seems to have blocked that for now.
    So it looks like Colombia is the next project, Bogata and Cartagena both look interesting [​IMG]


    I hope your weekends are going well, here is some Italian rustic art by Eugenio Zampighi :
