Re: What is happening

That link used to work, then it stopped working. I picked it up from a previous posting of yours and it worked for a while and then stopped again. It doesn't work when I type the address in either.

And it won't be when the only message that comes up is page not found.

Re: What is happening

There's nothing like a couple of cats in full "midnight crazies" mode racing up and down a wooden-floored passageway for keeping someone awake!

Re: Printer Hall

Just as a matter of curiosity, how do they cut skybroom if it's super-hardwood?

And Lady Nadona's just being picky - If she wanted the portraits big enough to be seen across the room what was...

Re: What is happening

The Doctors would be more than a little bit alarmed about the "cardiac problem" too, especially if they are not sure what is causing it. It doesn't take much to put the anesthetists off either. ...

Re: What is happening

As for blood clots in the lungs - been there, done that - twenty years ago. And had major surgery a year later. However, I was in my early 50s and otherwise fit, and we do have a state-funded...

Re: Way forward?

I'd say yes. It's much easier to clarify your ideas when you can bounce them off someone else. But I've got a few questions of my own. Like, what was the nature of that collaboration and how much...

Re: What is happening

We're going to have an interesting situation of a similar kind here. A post-lockdown spendup by my landlord has scored me the new stove that I've been waiting four and a half years for. Trouble is,...

Re: What is the tithe rate?

That makes sense, at least for the major routes. Mining would involve the same skills and tools. At the time I asked I was writing a fanfic that started in an isolated hold in Nabol, and the Lord...

Re: Fur and textiles on Pern

People also spin the fur of samoyed dogs, and we know that Pern had canines. I have also seen a very beautiful cloak made of narrow strips of fur from a white, long-haired dog. In a museum, before...

Student project on Pern

Just to show that people are still thinking about a movie about Pern. This project suggests to me that the author warped a question about gender supremacy to express her own interests. I did the...

Our whole country has had that for a week, with at least four more weeks to go. Except, no groups at all. We're expected to stay in our own "bubble" even when exercising out of doors. My bubble...

Re: What is happening

Bread freezes quite well. So does milk. I live on my own so I often freeze both. The main problem with freezing bread is the amount of space it takes up. Stale bread gets turned into breadcrumbs...
