Monday morning, a new day and a new week.The sun is out, the sky is blue, mum is knitting!!!! and beautifully too, she hasn't knitted for months but I thought I would try it after breakfast as I think the colouring book and dominoes are not so popular with her at the moment.I am going to risk going upstairs to change the beds and get the wash on.Sounds mundane? But it is normal, joy oh joy I cannot tell you how brilliant " normal" feels!

We had a visit from my cousins daughter with her children at the weekend. Six under 8's what fun. Saturday at the beach hut, bangers for lunch with added sand in the sandwiches, sandcastles and trying to stop the tide! Then a day at our daughter's yesterday with the silliest games in the garden ( photos on my FB page if you care to look? Wendy Ann Simon) I still cannot blue clicky here ! Luddite me.

So a happy normal weekend, feeling so much better , thank you for all your love Rainbows.

much love and mojo all round

Hopping on board the good ship Jane to see how everyone is doing......Wendy, you are amazing, just keep on keeping on! Nigel, I hope you can ahead of those challenges.

We are focussing on our new family member now - our expected grandkid - although my brother who has gone will always be with me. It will be a well travelled kid too, it is currently in Switzerland with its mum who is performing in the Basel Tattoo; she plays French horn with an Australian Army Corps band.

Nigel, thank you for telling us more about your health challenges. It sounds like I should double the dose of mojo I'm sending!

A few months ago I was having trouble with my phone connection to the web. My son came in and set up wifi, which was lovely. Then I started having trouble with that. It seemed to be the power strip that everything was plugged into, so I checked it in another outlet and it wasn't working. Last night I bought a new strip, but I still can't get my connection to work. Using my phone is tedious. I'll read often but post less, and I'll still send mojo, love, and prayers to all.

Our part of Maine got about 4 inches of rain, gnu, but no troubles with electricity. When I'm home we're working outside from about 5 AM until dark, so staying cool isn't in the picture - with the bird chorus at dawn and the tree frogs trilling at dusk, we're fine. Need any snails? There are thousands...our chooks are eating them up! I found yet another active robin nest in the pollarded Box Elder in the peony bed.

Nigel, thinking about your friend Ian... Do you not realize you have continued Ian's legacy of encouragement to the crew and passengers right here on The Rainbow, as well as to me regarding song composition? He lives!

Janie- Despite the heat here, we've had so much rain my Bloodroot patch is still in leaf. Last spring the Purple Gem rhododendrons bloomed twice. I wonder if that will happen again?

Fair winds to all,

Maeve

Most fortunate of men am I that I should have your love & friendship. I'm overwhelmed, lost for words, but deeply grateful.
    Pete's right, the sight loss is normally a very gradual deterioration, often taking several years before one has to face up to things like quitting driving. My hearing loss seems determined to push ahead, regardless. The most recent audiogram showed moderate to severe loss over a wide range of frequencies, taking account of my music activities. Ageing plays it's part, but most of the damage has been caused by steroids. Three years of taking steroids (Prednisolone) for Polymyalgia Rheumatica has caused Type 2 Diabetes, Osteopenia & Fatty Liver Disease. For the sake of completeness,I may as well throw Dystonia & an Anxiety Disorder into the mix too, although I can't blame Prednisolone for them.
      
       I've been avoiding this sort of 'medical rant' for ages, but I'm mad as hell at the irreversible damage caused by the steroids. I can't hold it in any longer.
       With Love to you all, my Dear, Loyal Friends,
                                                                         Nigel.

You're always here for others, and when you give so freely, it feels bad to ask for anything. You have the right to do that, and everybody who reads this thread will, I'm sure, agree.

My Dear Wendy, your courage & fortitude in the face of adversity never ceases to amaze me. From where did you find the strength to remain calm in such a stressful, distressing situation? You truly are a wonder! The news about BB's job is something good & positive amongst a sea of troubles.

Janie, two voices in harmony, one guitar & a beautiful song. Might the pearls be our 'pearls of wisdom' to which we frequently turn?

Need some support myself. My Diabetes, even though well controlled, is beginning to affect my eyesight & hearing. Early days yet, but the conditions are irreversible & progressive. I've met with the Doctors concerned & they are monitoring my situation closely. Am I worried? Yes. Am I desperate? No, not yet, there is much I can do myself by paying even closer attention to my GL diet in combination with medication. Some ear & eye mojo would be greatly appreciated,
                              With Love,

Well,......

Had THE most dreadful hour with the brother Monday evening, very upsetting, he was vile, some of the things he said I cannot repeat, however I kept calm and just repeated " we have to sell mums bungalow"

result........... getting valuation today and giving the tenant notice, the estate agent even "might" have a buyer in mind, fingers crossed.

Very sad that he has said things that can never be forgotten, I am always quick to forgive however Billy is very angry that I have been hurt.

Good news BB has started a new job, fund raising for a hospice, I think three months of retirement was too much and it is good for him to get away from the house at the moment.

Sailing on

much love to all

I'm very relieved to hear that 'Arthur', whilst being a nuisance, doesn't seem to have left a trail of devastation in his wake. Quite what King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table would have made of it, I really can't imagine! (Plenty of opportunities here for 'Arthurian jokes', but I can't string anything together...need some inSPAWation).

Rumanci, great to hear from you. Just knowing that you're there, thinking, reading, keeping us close in your thoughts...that means a lot to me personally & to everyone else, I'm sure.

I use the Canadian Hurricane Centre and the US National Hurricane Center. The Canuck one is better, IMO, but the US one is good though more 'complicated'.

Rain? I had to clean the covers on two catch basins out front that were clogged with (ignorant) peoples lawn clippings and also with leaves and small branches. I had two huge snow shovelfulls* to dump in the compost pile. I shall have (polite) words with the fellow across the way and ask him to send his clippings lawn side or sweep them up.

I enjoyed it. When I saw on the radar that the rain was over, I flung open the windows and Mum Nature serenaded me to sleep with the wind in the trees. B**** woke me up a few times too but 'bad/good' eh?

Common usage here but it's the first time I ever saw it in print. Shovel fulls. Nope. Shovelfuls? Aha! Thanks spell checker.

Our NC coast handled it pretty well. I was hoping for some rain from it, but it was so small in diameter the rain bands didn't reach here. Earliest date for a hurricane to come ashore on the NC coast since they started keeping records official records, in the mid 1800's. However, there are unofficial records that indicate such storms have occasionally hit the NC coast as early as June.

All good in Moncton. Some trees down. But, not far to the NW, about 100 km, many without power... 50,000 in Fredericton alone.

This is not an unusual summer (or winter storm) for here. 90 kph NE is seldom a problem in my city.

Storm 'Arthur' seems to have been largely ignored by the UK media. Is everyone out there ok? Several of you appear to have been in it's path, or close by. Is this kind of storm a rarity for July? We've had some heavy rain & lightening, but short-lived & not destructive, unless, of course, you're unlucky enough to get struck!

We're glad your mum weathered (!) the stormlet, gnu. We only had four inches of rain and a lot of gusty wind here. All of the Meyers lemons and most of the lemon flowers stayed attached though. The snail population is the highest we've seen in 16 years or so...our little bantams have tried hard to gobble them all up.

Some of our robin families are raising their third, possibly fourth broods of the season. I've planted four varieties of tatties/spuds/potatoes layered in half whiskey/whisky barrels due to the high rainfall this spring, and the blight-resistant Yukon Gems will at last go into the larger veg garden hoping most of the heavy rain is behind us.

So sorry to be more absent than active on duty here, folks. Life is challenging- has been for some time. I am always interested in what's going on with all of you but find it hard to post even when I'm home.

As gnu often says, Thoughts and Prayers are ongoing for all.

I use a 432g box of cake mix with two eggs and 75 ml of oil. For the people way behind, the Imperial measures are One Betty Crocker, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup oil.

I have a carrot cake mix (spice cake preferred) so I need to add ginger. I now have it on good authority that one should try a 1/4 tsp in the first batch. (Doesn't seem to me it will be enough but I would hate to serve up ginger-ginger carrot cake cookies to Mum.

Also, Belgium and the Nether Regions will win today. I assume this is because the are counties Mum visited (and loved) while my old man was stationed in Germany with the RCAF.

Thanks... The bloody hurricane has kinda stalled. Looking at the various radar sites, I find Arthur to be the oddest storm I have ever seen on radar. Northern half of Maine and all of NB but NOwhere else??? Not bad here but I see one helluva lotta rain in Maine. It's pretty windy but the wind is forecast for this evening. 60 with gusts to 90 kph so it ain't bad.

Even though it's not going to be bad, Mum is upset that it could get worse than it is. I try to calm her down with calls and updates but she is still on edge. It gets to the point that if I don't call enough or call too often, she gets agitated so I try to find reasons for contact. Earlier, I paid some bills and brought them to her. I changed plans in the supper menu on a ruse of the burger still being too frozen. I shall call again in a while and ask her about a cookie recipe, ask her who she thinks will win in the World Cup today... etc.

Gnu, I thought of you and your mum when I read the storm warnings.....take care, my friend. Another friend lives in Amherst, N.S. - I shall email her soon to see if all is well with her, too.

I echo Nigel and add I Hope all on the Eastern Seaboard stay safe as Arthur is packing a punch. Supposed to be 'not bad' here with winds only up to 90km. Lots of rain, tho. Temps in the high teens so I'll be baking Swedish Meatballs and cookies for Mum (I don't do sweet stuff). Been over 40H (Humidex) here for several days so the break will be nice.

Bless all.

Not daft at all. Especially if it represents a place in one's heart.
