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.

Happy St David's Day.

It's not very spring like here this morning.  High winds and rain.

I slept so late this morning which is not like me.  So I am sitting here now having my first cup of tea with a fuggy head.

I need a while to wake up proper.

Aha good to see my little post went through. What a scary night it was and not many people would have been able to sleep through that noise! More to come today and tonight so if you don't see me posting later on you know why.

Sorry you had a bad night matie.  I hope it doesn't kick you off the web today.

I'm awake early because I was in bed by midnight last night which is good for me.  I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit out there before I take Louie for a walk.  It's a lovely sunny day but very cold at the moment because it's still quite early.

Another week nearly over.  They really are flying by for me at the moment.  They do say the less you do the faster the days seem to go.

As you can see I spent a lot of yesterday playing on here and adding bits to the board.  There is so much more you can do on one of these boards than you can on Yuku.

I love thunderstorms. Hate gales. I hope you don't float away though Martha. Just a mix of sunny spells and heavy showers here today.

I'm feeling remarkably lazy and plan on doing very little today. Unlike my dogs the cat doesn't nag me to take her out for a walk. That's not a good thing. I've become so lazy since my last dog died. Probably hasn't helped when it comes to keeping my weight down either.

I see all sorts of new things you've done here Sandy Smile All good fun hey!

Well the towels I had hung up outside yesterday afternoon got an extra rinse or 6 hahahaha.
The storm started out as a dry one which is oh so dangerous with our dry conditions here. Then all hell broke loose and I had to put a towel near my front door to stop the flooded water from soaking my carpet. The deluge was unbelievable and over as quick as what it started. Rain continued all night but at a more slower pace.

Today we lost power for a bit so I've had a day of lazing about and in between that doing a little housework. Still haven't mopped my kitchen and bathroom floors so that is for tomorrow.

We're on storm watch for the early hours of the morning and I hope they've got it wrong as I always have a busy Friday morning and the last thing I need is more storms!

Sorted out the birthday luncheon for Saturday with the family. It will be a scorcher long weekend here and all of next week will be around the 35C mark.

Ok I better get to bed and get some decent sleep.

Yikes that sounds like a bit too much water a bit too fast Martha. Better than a dry storm though like you say.

Busy day for me today too starting with grocery shopping for me and mum. Nothing exciting happening just a bunch of errands to get done and some appointments to book.

Morning all Smile
  March came in like a lion here too. Not so bad as where you are Martha...but a ton of wind and a bit of rain. I want to take my umbrella with me but there is no use in it as the wind is so strong.
  I notice the wind more at night though as we live on the top of a building and the wind is worse there. So it is not that easy to sleep with it banging the window "things". Lol. I've lived here since 2004 and I still don't know what those things are called. They are like big metal blinds on the outside of the windows here.
  I was reading back through the February chat and saw y'all talking about Brussel Sprouts. Yuck! I do not like those little things. I call them gas balls. I think they taste like I expect gasoline would. Nasty little dudes. I do find it odd that I hate them though as I love cabbage and broccoli and cauliflower etc.

Yup, I'm really loving this system.  It's a bit slow to load images but that I can live with.

I found going for walk Zona hard after my Bayley died.  I became so lazy like that.  At least having him got me out every day even if it was for only 20 mins on rotten days.

Now of course I have Louie to force me out.

I agree with Wendy Martha.  Too much water too fast. 

I read a book Zona, called The Magic Army.  It was written by an America solider that was sent over here during world war II to practice for D-day.  The first few chapters were hilarious because the American soldiers had to adapt to our ways.

Americans then had never seen a brussel sprout and there's a short bit about going to a local restaurant and a couple of them tried the "tiny cabbages".  They couldn't believe that we ate such things as they thought them revolting.

The very beginning of the book started off with them landing in the middle of the night and having to find their way through our county lanes in the pitch black with no road signs.  Obviously we had taken the sign down during the black out to slow down any German landings.  I had tears running down my face with laughter while reading it.

If anyone gets a chance you really ought to read it.  It's one of the best books I have read - https://www.amazon.com/Magic-Army-Leslie-Thomas/dp/0749321849

I am meant to do some washing today but for the life of me I can't figure out how to work the machine on the right setting.  Sarah's machine went kaput last week but the land lady had left a really old spare one in the garage which she told us to use.  I'm waiting for Sarah to get home from work to tell me which setting I need.

A warm welcome Marie.  So far this year has been good to me.  Keeping my fingers crossed it's going to get even better.  I'll be glad when the winter is over though.

Hi everyone!
 i think I'm properly registered here now. I thought I already was registered but neither of my info keepers (Google & Blur) had record of me ever being here, so either I'm clairvoyant or crazy!  cyclops LOL
Had a busy day so far, running around this crazy city, getting paperwork to add to applications at prospective new homes, post office, Costco for meat, then home to portion/wrap/freeze it all. I'm tired & will probably get to bed early tonight.
Have a very nice weekend! ♥️

Hello you.  A very warm welcome to you.  Nope you never found your way here before.  You found Martha's board but not this one.  So nice to see you here.

I managed to get my washing done and the kitchen cleaned, but not a lot else.  I've been playing on here figuring out what else I can add or play with.

It looks like you couldn't quite decide on your name on here Elaine, lol.  If you want to have Elaine as a username you could put Nutbar in the "Real Name" area or vice versa.  Or if you choose to use Nutbar as the username then I can stop anyone else registering with the name Elaine.  It's up to you.

Hello to Everyone from Ontario! It's been a very cold couple of days...we're back into the minuses with double digit wind chills. Brrr. March 1st the day started really warm...around +13 (C) but by late afternoon it was cold and we had a cold, windy rain. These last two days no rain or snow just cold, cold, cold! Right now it's -8 C and feels like -12 (C).

I am not a fan of brussel sprouts...I haven't eaten them since the mid-1970s and am thankful for that! LOL. I know so many people really do enjoy them but I just don't like the smell of them cooking nor the taste of them.

Currently, I'm a huge fan of snap peas...have them quite often each week as well as baby carrots...and I don't get tired of either.

Hope everyone has a great night.

Brussel sprouts and celery. Both disgusting. lol

Morning everyone. Not a bad day weather wise today. Mostly dry and the sun may even poke its nose out for a while. Then back to heavy rain tomorrow. I've done a few chores but have decided I should get out and about and make the most of our best day for quite some time. The trouble is I can't make up my mind where to go. Maybe after another coffee....

I have no idea how to friend anybody here and am most likely overlooking it somewhere that would be totally typical of me, could someone please point me in the right direction please?

I woke up to a dusting of snow on everything this morning out there with temps of -3 Celsius. brrrrr
It's supposed to be sunny for some parts of the day otherwise nothing much going on today, I did it all yesterday.

Omgosh even ToeTapping is here as well as Elaine. :cheers:

Ahhh, that's because I haven't got the friend/foe feature activated. 

If it's wanted though I can turn it on.  I think once it's activated you go to someone's profile and there will be a button to click to friend or foe.  Although I doubt foe will ever be used.

Who would have thought that Sprouts would be discussed over 2 pages, lol.

I've just noticed Elaine that you have the same birthday as one of my older Sisters.  And ChrisW has the same birthday as my Sarah, so I can never forget hers.

I spent yesterday doing a little change around of my website.  It used to have the same skin as my Yuku board but I've now made it to match this board.  Got rid of a couple of pages no longer needed and had a general tidy up over there.   Now it's winter in Aussie I expect Martha will have a play of hers again soon.  She keeps threatening to.

She must be having a whale of a time with her friends and family this weekend not to come on the boards at all.  I hope so anyway.

Dull wet day here for us.  I expect it's even worse for Wendy being up in the midlands.

The Midlands? !!!!! How dare you? I'm in the North West. lol You'll be making me a southerner soon. Only one county north of me before you hit Scotland.

Surprisingly the rain hasn't arrived yet and it's 11.30am but a soggy afternoon is still forecast.

I've done a few small chores this morning but I'm not planning on doing much less. A busy week coming up so I'm hoping to just chill out this afternoon.

We have several cm of snow here in Vancouver this morning. So far no road crews on our road though. Roomie and I are hoping to get to the theatre this afternoon to see The Great Wall, a monster movie starring Matt Damon. Depends on the weather though
