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.

Hello! Smile
It's a sunny Wednesday afternoon here in Vancouver. I'm taking a quick break from some light housework.  I'll poke around here for a few minutes before getting back to it Smile

It's a cold and windy, dull day here so I'm catching up on computer stuff and then will shower and watch a movie while having my lunch I think.

Sandy perhaps make the font color black for in this quick reply; that should help a lot with the fading part/flowers in there.

His daughter is starting on decorating the room this week anyway Sandy so he wanted to get the window done first. To be fair they did a good, clean job anyway and it's not the window causing the room to need a spruce up. It did make the old gloss look even more in need of a refresh though.

I've been pretty sick the last couple of days. Painful cough that's giving me a blinding headache too but nothing too serious I don't think.

Recycling is out and I've done a few other chores but I think I'll be taking it easy for most of the day.

The problem was Martha was the opaque code that I had to use at the time was also making the black text opaque.  I simply couldn't figure a way to stop that.

If I just made the image opaque and not use the code then it uploaded with a black background.  I have worked on the image itself this morning and managed to get it uploaded now with a transparent background.  So now I have removed the opaque code and used an opaque image instead.  This enables the text to come through black.

Sorted!

Sorry to hear you aren't too well Wendy.

Sorted out some new glasses yesterday and with the help I get from the NHS towards the lenses, and by using my old frames, even with having them transitional they are only going to cost £160.  Well pleased with that.

I really do have to get off my arse today and do something.  My flat is a tip because I haven't done anything for at least a week.  It's coming up lunch time now, so I will get something down my throat and then make a start.

Raining here this morning. Workmen are demolishing the old brick wall out the back now they've finished enclosing the new houses with their own fencing. A bit noisy for 7.30am which is when they started. I'm still coughing and can't shake this headache so that's making me grumpy about the racket.

I've thrown a load of towels in the washing machine and I'm grocery shopping this morning but nothing else that can't wait. I'm hoping the noise will have finished by the time I get home..

Aimee picking me up this morning at 9am to take me to the hossy for a blood test.  It's a starvation one which I hate.  I'm sitting here dying for my morning cup of tea.  Food is easy to go without but not my tea.

Once I get home I want to fix up my bathroom as most of the bits that I ordered have arrived.  I'm just waiting on a couple more.

I put my bedding in the machine yesterday and then when I went to take it out all the emergency lights were flicking on and off and I can't open the door, so something must have gone wrong in the wash cycle or my machine is breaking down.  I'm going to run it all through again in the hopes that this time it will go through the whole cycle and was just a quirk.

Bummer you are feeling so shitty Wendy, hope it all clears up quickly.

It's a lovely rainy day today. I've made my special vegan buns and am soaking cashews to make the vegan cheese spread to put on them. I'm also planning some meals for Roomie to have whenever he wants. He can have sweet & sour chicken legs today if he likes & tomorrow I'm going to make meatballs in gravy. The sweet & sour sauce is basically just made with grape jelly, tamarind paste, pomegranate concentrate, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. He says it's the best S&S sauce he's ever had. I'll take his word for it, lol
The day is running away from me now. It's almost 2PM & I haven't showered yet. I better get on that Smile

Just got back from the eye glass store. Was going to take the bus to the mall , missed the bus,
               so decided to to walk to the Iris store instead .    I needed two pair of glasses , one for
                reading and one for distance .  Needed thin lenses do to the prescription strength .
                Blue cross will pay a good part towards it ... but only every two years , but it sure helps .


                 I will head for another trip to the mall by bus  soon , do need to go and get rain booties 
                  Weather is sunny and windy right now , had rain earlier in the day .
                      
                    Hope you will feel better soon Wendy , painful cough sounds kind of serious , best get 
                      checked out  , take good care .
                      Hello  Elaine, your food sounds yummy , Sandy .... enjoy the new glasses , hope all 
                        turns  out well with the blood test .  Martha, crawl under a warm blanket and enjoy 
                        your movie .
                         
                          Have a great day all .

Elaine I watched The Space Between Us The Space Between Us and it was alright; nothing too exiting but just a nice feel good movie.

Sandy this is better on the eyes while typing in the quick reply box; thanks Smile 

Feel better soon Wendy! I hate coughing as it always gives me headaches too.

Oh that S&S sauce sounds nice Elaine! I'm too lazy to make it myself but might try this one.

Yeah the price of new glasses is never cheap so glad you both managed to get your discounts on them Geru and Sandy.

I've cleaned my bedroom, laundry and bathroom but I really need to clean the kitchen and living room today as it's a mess.

I hate those tests too Sandy. I always cheat and have a coffee anyway. I wouldn't be fit to drive without one. I hope your washing machine completed the cycle second time around. Could there have been a power cut while you were out?

I'm sure I'll live GERU. I don't do doctors unless I'm already unconscious and don't know anything about it. That has happened once. lol I hope you found some glasses you like. Great that you can get something towards them at least.

Your roomie is very lucky Elaine. Spoiled from the sounds of it.

The machine went through with no problem the second time.  It was really wierd how it stopped with all the alarm lights like that, but your idea of a power cut, even a short one, is more than possible.

All that food sounds really nice Elaine.  I wish I was the type of person that could be bothered with all that cooking, but I'm not.

My whole flat is not so much a mess Martha, but certainly needs cleaning a bit more thoroughly than it has been having lately.

Hope you find the glasses you want Geru without having to pay out too much for them.

It's now 10am here and all I have done is have my shower and played on Youtube.  Not very productive.  But hey, it's Saturday.  Doesn't that come under a lounge around day?

I must get some food down my throat though because unusual for me, I have woken up hungry.  I don't usually eat until midday.

Morning everyone. I'm still feeling a bit rough so taking everything slowly. Getting through a few essential chores gradually but anything not vital can wait.

Glad the machine is OK Sandy.

Had a nice catch up with my Cali friend last night before she heads off to her sister's for a few days. Sadly her brother-in-law died last week so she's going to help out with arrangements and keep her sister company since the kids have to go back to work tomorrow.

Thanks Martha. They're doing OK. His death was expected but much quicker than anyone thought it would be. A blessing in many ways.
