Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

I thought of something else whilst brushing my teeth this morning.  A while ago we were told not to rinse after brushing but just spit out the tooth paste, because according to experts the tooth paste continues working in our mouths if we only spit and not rinse.  Now we are told that we need to rinse because of all the tiny little balls of plastic in the tooth paste and we mustn't swallow them.

Once upon a time it was eat an egg every day, then they changed that to only eat an egg once or twice a week.  Now once again it's advised to eat an egg a day.

You really do have to laugh.

As for sleeping, it depends where my bed is.  For years because of lack of space I've had to have a single bed and it always has to be up against a wall.  I always sleep facing the wall.  Depending where my bed is it could be on my right or my left.

Same here Martha with having dinner midday and tea in the evening.  In fact I often still call our evening meal tea, even though we are having a dinner.  Maybe having dinner at night is the reason a lot of people don't have supper anymore.

I'm finding the coding on here a lot easier now I am understanding it.  Oh btw Martha, I left a tip for you over on my skin test site.

I'm doomed then. lol I always sleep on my right side and rarely move at all during the night. 

A grey start but the sun's come through and there's a bit of a breeze so I've just optimistically hung my bedding out to dry.

Bin men are clattering away out there now so I'll grab the wheely in next before some charmer fills it up for me again. I need to run some scans on here and get a shopping list off mum for tomorrow. That tends to take a while. After that I haven't decided what to do today.

That's one good thing about living in here in the New Forest.  The facilities here are the best in the country.  We have collections once a week, whereas elsewhere it seems everyone has them fortnightly.  We do not have bins of any sort makimg all roads look like rough estates, instead we put the black bin bags by the gate and they are picked up from there.  Plus the dustmen if they make a mess they clear it up.

Ok, the rates are higher here but well worth it.  They really know how to juggle the money in this council.

I've been playing in the background of the site today to entertain myself. 

Sunny day but very chilly still.  Still having to wear a coat to go out.  Aimee's fella is coming home from Ireland for two weeks today, I thought it was meant to be tomorrow, and then he is off to Iraq for 6 months.

I tried using a mouse left handed once. I was hopeless at it. lol I hope it heals quickly Martha.

Our collections alternate so once a fortnight is right. We have wheelys for rubbish one week and then  blue boxes for glass, cans and plastics, a brown wheely for compost (but they're bringing in an extra charge for that collection) and a white sack for paper and cardboard the following week. The sacks are useless as they blow away half the time and you have to jump through hoops to get a new one. 

Grocery shopping this morning. It's dull and damp at the moment. They keep telling us we're going to get a nice day but I'm still waiting.

It's lovely sunshine out there this morning. A hard frost but far better than wind and rain. I have a few chores to do but mostly I'm going to be very lazy today. I need to try and think of birthday presents for two elderly ladies. One will be 93 in a couple of weeks time and my mum's 90th is in May. Hopefully I can come up with something before then. They're so difficult to buy for. They have everything they could possibly need or have room for and neither of them are really mobile enough any more for a lot of the outings or events we used to treat them to.

PostSubject: Re: April Chin Wag   08/04/17, 10:36 am

So a bungy jump experience is out of the question, lol.  I find it so very hard to buy really nice pressies for people now because as you say, everyone seems to have everything they need and want.

It's very sad about Yuku Geru, but I don't think anyone seems much inclined to fix anything over there anymore.  I honestly don't think CG want to keep it going.  I"m sure they are hoping eventually everyone will move to their Freeforums.  For years I fought against closing my board on there and moving to another system, but even most of the members there are sluggish now.

Other systems have so much more to offer.  I tried to persude Yuku to add things like html pages, portal pages and goodness knows what else over the years.  They just weren't interested.  They just wont keep up with what people want from a message board.

I lost a heck of a lot of images as did others a couple of years ago.  I didn't even report it because those that did never got their images back.  And Yuku didn't seem to care.  When they do fix anything it's just a sticking plaster they use to keep it going for a short while longer.

And as for their Freeforums system, one can't even customise the html or css at all.  One can add a back ground image and change the colours and that's it.

I am so pleased I moved off of there and found this system for a board.  Although I still love being part of Yuku regarding posting on there and having a profile.  Their profiles, even with bugs are far better than anywhere else on the web.  But even the profiles have stopped being used by members, which I find silly because they are a great way of advertising one's board.  I don't think Yuku will last much longer to tell the truth.

I think our streets look apalling nowadays with all those wheelie bins stuck out there.  So many people don't bother to take them back into their garden after the collection.   And since the bin collections have been privatised the streets are filthy where the dustmen just don't pick up any rubbish that they scatter around as they pick up the bins.  This simply doesn't happen in the New Forest area.

When was the last time you saw street cleaners coming around?  Heck they don't even bother to pump out the drains anymore in the Autumn after the leaves have fallen.  No wonder more and more flooding is occuring.  

Lovely day out there.  The place is very quiet here.  Aimee has gone off to Cornwall for a few days with her fella, Sarah was out all night staying with her fella and Jess went out galavanting through the early hours so she will be in bed until just before she has to go to work about 5pm.  That girl certainly burns the candle at both ends.

We still have the street cleaners here Sandy and the drains will be done soon too i preparation for the winter rain.

Yes it's a sad state of affairs at Yuku and I only go there now to quickly check a few boards but most of my old friends seem to have disappeared or hardly posting. I'm keeping my 2 skin boards going as they are of use to those who already have boards going.
I think Geru that only the older members are trying to hold onto Yuku but how long does one put up with all the downtime and things not working properly?

Wendy how about an updated and framed family photo for the birthday girls?

We put money in an bought my mum a new side table to put beside her recliner chair and I find out today what she thinks of that as they are celebrating her belated birthday today.

My thumb is not throbbing much now so I am spending a little time on the computer Smile

Oh good to hear Jess arrived home safely Sandy. How is her thumb?

Nothing much going on just a whole lotta rain but, I was able to sneak out here and there to get some flower shots of some Spring. lol Wink 

The last I was able to sneak out was yesterday morning and was able to get home in the nik of time while the rain was just starting.

Love the new skin in here Sandy it's beautiful especially the background. flower

Hi everyone.

Sandy,
It is crazy how the different experts have changed
the opinions about what we should and shouldn't do
and what we should and shouldn't eat over the years.
I suppose most people just judge for themselves
what works and what they figure out is hurtful
to their situation.

Martha,
Glad the thumb is throbbing less.
My thumb hurts just thinking about it.

Wendy and Geru, I hope you get some warm sunny days
your way.

Linette, Glad you were able to get some
nice Spring flower shots.
The Spring flowers always lift my spirits.

We have 71F and sunny here today.

I ran some errands this morning
and it was a little chilly.
I'm planning on getting out a little later today
and enjoying this sunshine.

Have a great rest of your day!

Frosty mornings yesterday and today Kerri but lovely sunshine and warming up nicely. Back to the cold and dreary stuff tomorrow sadly.

Yes I think the jump might be a no-no Sandy. lol The photo would be a lovely idea if they had any space left Martha. Their walls and various cabinets are like a rogue's gallery of photos. Both have just got photos showing five generations too. Plus they got digital cubes not long ago. I'm sure your mum will love her table. Unfortunately mum already got one of those to go with her new recliner. It's a nightmare coming up with ideas. We're such a big family so between birthdays, Mother's Days and Christmas we've totally exhausted our imaginations over the years.

Sounds like your girls are having a great time Sandy. It must be nice to see them all happy again. It will be great to get your own space again too though I bet.

She said it hurt for a good 3 days of her holiday Martha, but it was all clean and no infection.  I'm pleased to hear that your's isn't as bad now.

Thanks for the compliment @Linette.  I must admit I've loved this background for ages.

I think they do it to justify their existance @Kerri and also of course the papers use the story as a way of padding out the news.

Yeah, I'm so proud of both Aimee and Jess Wendy because they have both turned out to be hard workers and mix with some lovely people.  Although some of Aimee's boyfriends certainly haven't been marriage material if you know what I mean, lol.  I have liked them all, but known that they wouldn't last long before her moving on to the next one.  However it's very different with Zarron.  I'm hoping that she will end up with him.  He is perfect husband material.

It seems that Jess and James have amicably split up.  They spilt up just before they went on holiday, but still went away together so as to not waste the money and to have a last good time together.  And they did both have a lovely time.  Their relationship started not long after they left school and it was bound not to be a forever one because of them both being so young.  I"m sure they will remain friends as they both have many of the same friends.

I am thrilled that Sarah has found Martyn because not only am I sure they are perfect for each other but it also means I can move out earlier if I get the chance and not feel guilty.  Woo Hoo!  To have my own space back again will be terrific. 

Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that the place they offer me will be in a great position.  With 7 blocks of flats to chose from on the complex and flats both back and front of each, there are really only 2 blocks that face where I would hate.  So 2 x 7 = 14 faces and to have only 2 faces that I would really hate to live in isn't bad odds.  Although there are another 2 faces that I wouldn't be over keen on.

Flippin heck!  I came here from Yuku thinking I could post right away. *scowl*

Damn you wimmens is long winded... Martha i hope your opposable digit is feeling better.  I unlike Sandy care. tongue

Well, if you came more often you wouldn't have to spend so much time catching up now would you, lol.

Hope your Daughter is feeling a lot better now treatment is over.

Don't sympathise too much with Martha, you will start her whinging again, rofl.

If your Grandmother had wallpaper looking like this background, gawd her place must have been that dark you couldn't see to eat.

You can come and just post Dougie. What are you whinging about?

Oh well. As long as both are happy with the break up Sandy that's what's important. Good that they could go away together as friends and still have fun. As for Aimee, at least she has the sense to know which ones to move on from after having her fun. lol Smart girl. The best of luck to Sarah and Martyn. You may have to start buying hats soon.

I assume you can say no to a flat if you really don't like it and hold out for a better position? If you're intending being there for a long time you don't want to accept one you hate. Fingers crossed it doesn't come to that and you get a prime spot.

I could refuse and wait for another but it would mean going to the back of the queue again and could be another long wait.  It's the sun that I need.  I get very, very low if I don't get much sun indoors.  I suffer really bad during the winter months because of it.  I will just have to wait and see.

I've saved enough money while I've been here to get me moved back, buy a new carpet and a new cooker which I will need.  I also have to buy a fridge freezer because a couple of weeks before I moved mine went kaput.  All that will dry my bank account up but it wont take me long to save a bit again.

Morning yo all`s. 

Thanks Sandy. Carrie is very happy it`s over with, now it`s the healing from the radiations burns. Better than the other though.


Hey I have 16 points!! Sweet!


It`s more the pattern Sandy than colour. So when are you going back to Yuku? tongue  

Martha I really really hope your thumb is on the mend.  Just because that curmudgeon is heartless doesn`t mean the rest of us are. Wink

Just post Wendy? How do you expect me to keep a roof over me haid. Rolling Eyes

Hi Dougie and thanks so much for sympathizing with me and my sore thumb. I really appreciate it

I bet Carrie is glad it's done now and yes healing from that will take some time too.

Just a quick stop in as it's already very late .. or very early depending how you look at my clock lol.
