Re: What is Happening, part II

Re: What is Happening, part II

I had some odd looking pumpkins come out of a compost heap at a house I was renting. They were bright yellow and the shape of a short, fat marrow or kumikumi without the ridges or an overgrown yellow...

Re: Zel's Automotive Antics & Occasional Distractions.

The vast majority of our taxis here in Wellington are hybrids. My younger son had a second-hand Toyota Prius for a while. Problem was, he was a weekend user, as he and his wife both lived in the...

It's been happening all over the world. It's not just the lack of pilots. Every aircraft has to have a complete check before it comes out of storage - right down to every inch of wiring. Before he...

It's the redwoods I'd want to see. There was a row of them on the northern boundary of my parents farm which was visible from a mile and a half away. A storm in 2015 blew the tops off some of them...

Re: New MoM playground?

Ginny, my daughter can't spell either so I'm used to sorting out the meaning of what looks like an un-related collection of letters.

Vegemite and Marmite are yeast spreads. I'll have some grainy bread toast and butter to go with that for breakfast.

I can't use latex - but then, neither can my Doctor! At least that means there's no argument about it.

Re: What is Happening, part II

A mind-picture for you Ginny. Imagine a broad-leafed, dark green grass, about six feet high. The grass leaves can either be pointing upward, or droop from about three-quarters of the way up. Above...

Keep it up Ginny - your typing is coming out well, not nearly so many double letters and scrambled words. Hoping that will make reading much easier too.

Re: What is Happening, part II

I got told that a sum of money coming from Ireland was going to be paid by "Eurocheque."
Who still does cheques? Certainly my bank doesn't accept them.

You probably mean linen, Ginny. It's made out of a plant with a little blue flower, which also produces linseed, a dietary supplement. It's often fed to show animals and horses to improve their...
