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.

Good Evening. Heading off but just wanted to come in and share a link and then get out and go to bed. I went to bed too late last night after fixing up my blogforum, so I am taking off early.

Thanks GERU. She's 90 so probably won't heal fast but she's a tough old bird and determined to stay independent as much as possible. I cracked five ribs at once Sandy. I like to do things properly. lol  Slept sitting up for weeks and went into panic mode at the beginnings of a sneeze. Breathing was difficult, coughing was worse but sneezing was the most painful.

Stay safe GERU. Fires where you are and storms and floods over here right now. Mother Nature is not happy with us.

It's good that you can start unpacking Sandy and don't have to just sit around waiting. It will mean less to do when you actually move in.

We have the same problem with insurance companies here Geru but instead of fire it's flood areas here.  We are getting more and more problems with floods.  Already in my extended area here we had a bit of heavy rain a couple of days ago and many suffered flash flooding.

Same here this last couple of days Mozzie with the electric storms.  We had a doozy the night before last.  The worst we have had for a long time.

Yup, I had the sitting up all night for weeks as well Wendy.  And doesn't it seem as if one wants to cough or sneeze more often than usual then?  Bloody agony it was.

I hope you had a good night Beckea.

We were all meant to go out for breakfast this morning to meet up with Jess and to meet her boyfriend for the first time, but I've just been told it's cancelled as Jess isn't feeling very well today.  I'm not sorry because it would have been a bit of a rush to go out for breakfast and then get over to the flat to wait for the cooker and fridge delivery.

I hope that comes early as I don't want to have to wait in an empty flat all day.  Although as I say I do have some more unpacking but not enough to keep me busy until 5pm.

Geru the Osteo gets bad for me in winter and with this wet and stormy weather we're having it's very painful!

Hiya Mozzie Smile yeah the weather is not the best and I've had hail and thunderstorms thrown in the mix. The gusty 100km an hr wind is what kept me awake most of the night as the noise was not good.

Morning all and I am slowly catching up with a few boards. Still haven't visited other boards but hope to get around it over the weekend.

Wendy .. sorry to hear about your mum's fall and lolol on good that your brothers stepped up!

I ended up waiting until 5.45pm yesterday for that bloody delivery.  To add insult to injury because I hadn't paid an extra £75 to have the cooker installed they were going to leave it all still boxed up in the middle of the living room.

"Oh no you are not" I said "There is no way that I can unpack that and put it in place myself" - "But it doesn't say you are having it installed on the papers" he said, shoving the paper under my nose. "That's because I'm not having it installed by you" I said.  "Just unwrap it and put it in the gap, I"m already very unhappy with this delivery service, don't make it worse".   They then unwrapped it and put it in the gap.

After contact with their customer service I have now also had my delivery charge returned.

I've got to pop over there this morning for Les, one of the workmen from the office to come and actually install it for me.  I am sure he would have unpacked it and put it into place but why the heck should he when I had paid for delivery.  What sort of bloody customer service are these companies dishing out nowadays.  This would never have happened years ago.

No it wouldn't and good for you getting the delivery charge back too. No pride in their jobs these days a lot of people. Then again no respect or security for them from the companies they work for either. No such thing as rewarding loyalty any more.

I hope Jess is feeling better soon and you get to meet the boyfriend at a more convenient time. I wouldn't be very sociable at breakfast time anyway.

Arrived at mum's with her groceries and ten minutes later one of my brothers arrived with his 9 month old Shih Tzu so it looks like they are doing their bit Martha. Miracles happen. Mum was quite chirpy and tucking into her lunch when I left.

You know Sandy over here when you pay for delivery it literally means they deliver; nothing more unless you ask for it and of course pay extra. This has nothing to do with the service as such but more with insurance claims when said delivery guys might do their back in!

Everything these days is focused on insurance claims believe it or not! Common sense and decency have gone out the window and every man and his dog are suing for the slightest thing!

I'm on my 2nd cuppa and then need to get stuck into some washing and do a little bit of shopping. Must not forget to grab a pressie as well as I have a birthday to go to tomorrow.

We've had more rain overnight and it looks like another wild and wet few days. Good part is that I don't have to worry about watering Catherine's gardens hahahaha.

One company here will only deliver it to the front door, even if you live in a purpose built block of flats that have a lift.

It's not only the delivery service that's not customer friendly it's the telephone customer service.  It's so bloody wrong that you have to listen to recorded crap then push goodness knows how many buttons of choice before you get a human on the end of the line.  By the time I get to that person I am so bloody angry it's hard to be civil.

The secret of not getting tired Becks, is not bloody do so much, lol.  It took me ages to slow down and not try to do everything in one day.  Now of course I have slowed down too much, and my motto is, "There is always tomorrow".

I'm going to be really bored now this week waiting to move next Saturday as I only have the carpet being laid on Thursday and then do some shopping on line to be delivered to the flat either while waiting for the carpet chappie or while waiting for the removal men to get to me with a loaded van on the Saturday itself.  I haven't decided on that yet.

I'm really late which might become the norm for a while. Called to another mini crisis with mum before I was even dressed or had a coffee. Not a good time to expect me to be functional. lol All sorted now but if I do disappear from time to time over the next couple of weeks that's probably where I'll be. The district nurse and carer couldn't get mum up because of her pain so called my brother but she wasn't having any of him either. Got her up and dressed now. It wasn't so much the pain although I know cracked ribs hurt like hell. It was more she'd slid flat in bed and her lungs had clogged up. I remember I slept sitting up for weeks. She was in a panic about not being able to breathe more than worried about the pain. Once I'd calmed her down and got her out of bed so she could cough properly (albeit hanging onto the ribs) and clear the fluid she's much better. I know the feeling well. It's scary waking up and not being able to get any air.

  We have another nice day here, bit overcast , but muggy and dry .  Fires still prevailing and burning out of control in places, some folks can go back home , but lots and lots are still displaced.   We need rain . something we usually get plenty of in BC Canada



Whisper:   oh boy , you are having a time of it with your mom, I still remember all the pain, could not even lift a a 1 ltr jug of mild  out of the fridge with my right hand , breaks were on that side . Was on Tylenol and Ibuprofen for a long time , even then , pain pain pain , I could feel  a rib actually moving , so it must have been broken right through  .


They don't bind you any more  in Canada , people have died , because they could not breathe  . Sleeping needs done  in a reclining  position , and not flat ,  partly elevated  , so you don't get Pneumonia . You would think the caretaker would know this . Sending good wishes for your mom, for speedy recovery .  



Martha :  I love your Marbels .... lol , only you could come up the saying ...."  I am from the future "   lol , and you are soooo right .  Arrow   I am from your past ..... hope it was good .



Dazzle:   hello , how are you ?, what's new ?

 
Sandy:    Yup , customer  delivery service, customer phone service are absolutely drastic , how come when I press one for English I still can't understand  the language .  Your stove ( cooker ) story sounds so funny , thanks for the reminder , got to buy a lazy boy and have it delivered and unpacked and put together maybe , must have this  arranged before hand for sure , THANKS for the reminder

Beckea : Have a good rest , don't work to hard .



My next undertaking is trying to find cheaper Internet service and maybe a streaming device , big job, my brain is smoking from advise ..... Shocked

Oh heck Wendy.  If she doesn't sleep sitting up she is going to have to be very careful regarding pneumonia.  I really feel for her.

I got a really good deal on my internet, tv and telephone service for my new flat.  The initial contract at half price for it all lasts for 18 months before the price goes to it's normal charge.

I hope you get that rain soon Geru.

I am washing curtains and bedding today ready to iron and pack away.  I have borrowed a set of bedding from Sarah so that she will wash those when I'm gone and I wont have to take any dirty ones with me.  I have so many boxes piled up in front of the window now it doesn't matter that I am going without curtains for this last few days, as no one can see in passed the boxes.

We'd tried to make the bed so mum couldn't slide down but she'd managed it somehow so some rearrangement was necessary. My brother went and got her up this morning before the carer got there. The carer helped her get dressed and a different brother is there now so I'm catching up on things here this morning. Got jeans and sweatshirts drying outdoors. It's actually sunny and hot. Need to keep an eye on it though. It's building up for more heavy rain. The doctor has given mum some added pain relief and also some antibiotics because her chest sounded a bit dodgy. Hopefully that will keep the infection at bay. I got double pneumonia when I cracked mine and that was with no binding and sleeping sitting up so I'm happy in this instance for a bit of preemptive medication. I'm not usually a big fan of abxs being doled out but I think it's warranted this time.

My guinea pig guest is tucking into cabbage, apple, carrot and red pepper for breakfast. She seems particularly fond of peppers which surprised me a bit. Still hasn't made a sound but she's certainly packing away the food.

Hi Everyone.

Oh my goodness, Wendy.
I hope your mother is feeling better soon.
In her case, it is probably a good idea to start the antibiotics.
She does not need pneumonia on top of the problem with her ribs.

Almost at the finish line with the moving, Sandy.   Smile

Two of my granddaughters spent the night last night.
I'm taking them swimming in just a little bit
then maybe to a nearby park.
I could use a nice walk near the lake at the park.
It has finally cooled down today
after days of hot and humid weather.
It will be nice to open all the windows
and let the breeze come in through the screens.

Hope everyone has a great rest of your day!

Gheez Wendy no rest for the wicked Wink is there! Hope the abxs kick in fast as the last thing your mum needs is a pneumonia!

Thanks Geru Smile it has been wet and windy here and I wish I could have send some of that weather to Canada to help with all those horrendous fires.

Monday morning here for this future woman so about to rush out the door and start my busy day.

I do so wish I had a swimming pool nearer to me.  For me to go swimming it's such a chore to get to the baths have a swim and then back again, that all the joy is taken out of it.

What is so irritating is that there is a holiday camp just the other side of the stream from me, within about a 6 minute walk, but they have stopped allowing outside visitors to pay to use their pool.  It's for their staying guests only now.

Well, if she is tucking into her food then she can't be unhappy or upset that she has been moved to a new home for a while.  As you say, maybe she just isn't a chatty one.

I don't now about rushing Martha, but I too have a couple of bits of things to do today.  That's if Aimee decides keep to her agreement to run me into town quickly.  Although it's really her that has to nip into town and I am hitching a lift really.  But with her, there is always a chance of her deciding that she doesn't have to go after all.  If that's the case then I will have to go by bus.

Nothing happening here this morning. Big black clouds out there at the moment so I think we're in for some downpours. I need to get some housework done. Not having our usual lunchtime get together today. My sister agreed to swap a shift with someone so she's working. Maybe the timing is for the best. I doubt mum would be up to leaning over having her hair done anyway. I'm sure the two old dears will manage without their hairdos for once. I don't think the queen is visiting either of them this week.

I hope you and your granddaughters had a nice outing Kerri. That is a shame about the swimming pool Sandy. Extra income for them and great for the locals. Did they have trouble with some locals abusing the privilege or just too many people and their guests were complaining?

Nice day here , sunny and not to hot yet 20c , but dry as a bone .
Things are not improving weather wise with the no rain situation , not in BC Canada or California USA , it's fires fires fires, there are 700 of them in BC alone , it's a dreadful situation by now . so scary , we are all traumatized .    Don't forget , BC is full of trees and more trees , makes for good fire material .   

Kerri:  sending well wishes for your husband, sounds serious , enjoy your time in the pool with the grand children .  Ps, I invited Tara to join us here, hope she makes it in here .

Whisper:  Is your mom at home ? and is her rib--cage bound ?     If so .... a lazy boy is what I slept in for 17 month, You do not move around , it stays in one propped up position .  I lived alone then , and it sure saved my life !! . Sending well wishes for your mom. 

Sandy:  Good luck with all your moving work and getting settled in your new apartment ( flat)   you are one busy lady right now .  And... you got a good deal on the Internet etc , I will chat about this again when there is more time .

Martha;  hope your rushed day of Monday was not to hard on you and you got everything all done  as wanted .
 
have a great day everyone .

Yes she's at home GERU but not bound. They haven't done that here for a long time due to the risk of pneumonia. She's doing much better now with the extra pain relief for a few days. It was getting her out of bed that was very painful for her. She's complaining the meds are making her sleep all the time now. lol She nods off frequently anyway but she'd never admit that.

Another very dreary start to the day. I'm doing more boring housework this morning and then visiting my brother this afternoon.

Hope you had a great time with the Grandkids Kerri.

I would be grateful if I were her sleeping a lot like that Wendy.  Sleeping makes the healing time seem to go faster.  I would have loved to have fallen asleep when I broke mine and then woken up when the pain was gone.

Yeah, not long now for me Geru. 

I got my errands done yesterday with no problem.  Today, changed bedding, taken down curtains and both are now washed and hanging on the line.  Tomorrow packing up the rest of my stuff.  Thursday carpet being laid.  Saturday moving.  Oh my!!

By the time you are moving I will be having more time on my hands Sandy as Catherine & Dan will be back from Europe this Friday.

It's a cold evening and it has been raining that much here that I need to seriously figure out how I'm going to hang my washing inside. I was hoping for 1 good day but no such luck.

I managed to get 2 sets of pajamas's for half the price and even though they are 1 size bigger then what I normally get; I grabbed them anyway. Smile More room to move hahahaha.

That'll be great with you having more time to play.

I too desperately need more PJs.  Because I wear them to lounge in during the day when not going out I really need more for chopping and changing.  I do wish they made some really nice day pyjamas though.  I'm sure they do but I just can't seem to find any that look more as day wear and less as night wear.

I have to dry my clothes indoors at all times when in the flat, but I bought some over the door hangers which holds 5 coathangers so I put my wet clothes on coat hangers and hang them on that.


Actually I have two of them.  I hang them over my unit doors.  Everything dries overnight.

Good morning everyone it's another one of those hot as hell days and can't wait for summer to be over with.

Nothing much going on today especially not in this weather but, do laundry so that's what I'm dong right now before the heat kicks in full gear since I have to use the dreaded drier.

Dewey's by my side rolling around lol being adorable as always. ♥️
Hope everyone is having an awesome Tuesday.
