Stardust on the Moon

Post by Stardust on Fri 25 Mar 2011 - 11:06

Sunshine, digging Spring clothes out of their wardrobe prison, Summer is on the horizon.   sunny

Mustn't forget to put the clocks forward on Saturday night.  :idea:

What an auspicious day to start a new blog thread, beautifully warm and welcoming.

Leaving work early today. We'll sit at a café terrace slowly sipping Schweppe's tonic water and watching the world go by.

Bought a packet of those tiny little chocolate eggs.
They're very good if you're watching your weight.
Why?
Because it takes such a b..... long time to find the seam or edge where you can catch the foil wrapper to peel it off!
Going nuts here... What a Face

I'm still not sure if I have this section set up properly. Stardust, you seem to be posting in the 'Comments' section of your first Blog now, but on a different subject, rather than a new subject on a different day. That's why the extra posts look smaller, because they are actually the comments - which I think others can post use, to comment on your blog of the day (?) confused

I suppose trial and error will get us there.... eventually. study


ETA: Think maybe when you go to blog on another topic - different day, you need to click 'NEW TOPIC' rather than 'REPLY'. (?)

Testing options

Post by Stardust on Tue 5 Apr 2011 - 8:54

Okey-Dokey, I'll try that, Kitkat, though it seems a strange way of going about it. Shocked Very Happy
----------------
Added to post later:
Well I tried 'New Topic' instead of 'Reply' but it posted up as a new blog, Kitkat, so I deleted it.
I tried adding a post title but that made no difference either.
But it looks good like this, doesn't it? Probably takes up less room too?
----------------

We have real April weather here, sunshine one minute and showers the next.

Still peeling away at the wee choccie eggs, even though I have help 'disposing' of them. Very Happy
Everyone knows chocolate goes well with orange but it's great with cranberry juice too.

Spring sunshine

Azure sky and bright sunshine today. Got rid of the coat at last and wore a jacket. Feel full of energy.

Escape from 7-years bad luck

Post by Stardust on Fri 15 Apr 2011 - 10:19

Dropped a double-sided (back-to-back) mirror on the floor yesterday.  
But luckily only the support broke into several pieces, both mirrors remained intact. Phew!

Script ?

Post by Stardust on Wed 20 Apr 2011 - 12:29

Keep getting messages whereby a script on this site is slowing down Adobe Flash Player on my computer. I wouldn't mind if it was only once when I log-in, but it pops up at regular intervals and is driving me quietly potty.

Hi Kitkat.

It started a little while back, I think when this new forum was set up, or thereabouts, but it also happens on LAL too (which it didn't previously). That could just be coincidence though.

It could have happened after one of my computer updates, or lack of. It's one of those lovely old Macs that puts their tongue out at you and swivels, but it's unable to accept all updates because it doesn't have Intel inside. I'm very fond of it but I can't install Snow Leopard, for instance, so obviously things are going to start getting complicated soon as theres a new version (Lion, I think) and my poor computer already feels left out. We'll have to get a brand new companion in the near future but this model was unique, the new ones are static.

Okay, I know what you mean now. I have had that once or twice before. I have an idea it may be connected with the Spiritlove widget running the latest activity there. Seems even more likely when you say it happens on LAL too, as there's a similar widget there. (May possibly be when it gets a bit "heated" over on SL giggle )

Hmmm ... I think I've sourced the problem now. It's quite possible that it may be something to do with the 'new post' image - the tail-wagging, miaowing cat (or is it a fox?). Only seems to be happening when new posts are made here. I think I'm going to have to change it.

Paper sorting yesterday. Took hours.
Not the way I'd planned to spend my free Monday.
At least this will be a short working week though, that's some comfort.

It was very cold on the way to work this morning, but now I've got the sun reflected off a window opposite straight into my eyes. Seeing the computer screen through a haze... have to wait a wee while...
Ah, that's better, no more reflection.

Just heard on the radio that there will be trees lining the aisle in Westminster Abbey for 'The' wedding. Whatever next? I can keep an eye on the action live via internet, Kiit-Kat.

I'm looking forward to the royal wedding. Too many folk in my home area are anti royal. I think it's almost become a fashion. To me, they are simply two young people with all the usual hopes and dreams-which can go sadly wrong for them as well as the rest of us.A toast to William and Kate---

I love the Royal Family, have done since a child, and all the pageantry, glitter and sparkles, uniforms, Prince Charles' ecological views, the gorgeous dresses and hats, horse-drawn coaches, beautiful cars. I love it all.

Didn't see the wedding direct because I was working but caught the highlights later. That dress was oh so lovely. Alexander McQueen would have been proud.

Butterfly

Post by Stardust on Tue 24 May 2011 - 14:05

A beautiful red/brown butterfly came and rested awhile on my open window this morning, it's wing movements catching my eye or I might have missed it. I watched this bright little creature for several lovely peaceful minutes, until it flew up and away into the sunny blue sky. I felt I'd been given a blessing.

Another allergic attack

Post by Stardust on Fri 10 Jun 2011 - 12:32

Got another allergy. Damn and blast!

I don't know what caused it this time either, but it's a pain.
I never used to be allergic to anything - no allergies at all.

Then it started...

First, as an adult, I had an extreme allergic reaction to penicillin,
then gradually some pollens, dust, feathers, creams and shampoos
decided to join the club too, then it was certain fruits...

Where will it all end!?!

The worst is when I can't pinpoint the origin,
because then of course I can't eliminate or avoid it.

Sorry to learn about your allergies, Stardust. I also became allergic to penicillin in adulthood. I am allergic to sticky bandages too. You could look up the commonest allergies and see if you have come in contact with any of them recently. Doctors can do tests but I think it's a long process as there are so many products which could be the culprit.

Hi Feather.

So we have an allergy to penicillin in common too.

I can usually pinpoint myself where the allergy came from. It's annoying when something eaten for years, like certain fruits (even peeled), suddenly provokes an allergy (probably pesticides to blame).

Seems like most of our food is polluted these days by one thing or another.

Is that strange, all three of us? Or are there more people allergic to penicillin than I thought?
So now we're officially a club.
Walking to the bus stop passed workers siphoning the drains, the smell was ghastly!!! Shocked
Now it seems impregnated in my nose and I can't get rid of it. No Yuk!!!
Have some essential oil spray so I'll try that, hope it does the trick. drunken

Something good will happen today, I can feel it.

Halfway through 2011 already - time is speeding up.

The media are starting to talk/write more and more about December 2012 being the end of the World. Cheerful lot, the media people, always something to brighten our days (NOT!).

Nobody else in the office today - I can play Bollywood music to my heart's delight while I work.

Life is so sweet sometimes.

Don't you just love all the new technology and other stuff. Progress is wonderful.

Running a razor under the tap this morning I cut my finger, so instead of one cut I have three parallel ones from the marvellous new three-blade razor. Thought it would never stop bleeding!

Ever tried to type quickly with a plaster on your index finger? It's not easy!

Bastille Day

Post by Stardust on Mon 11 Jul 2011 - 10:39

We have the day off on Thursday (July 14th) and the troops have been practicing their march down the Champs Elysees; there was even a mock fly-past. Weather forecast is fine but not too hot so they'll be grateful for that.

A good deal of fun on the agenda. Lots of local picnics and parties, dances arranged at the fire stations (traditional), fireworks, and more fireworks.

Everyone will burst with pride and a good time will be had by all.

Lots of rain and cold the last couple of weeks and no end in sight yet.
Supposed to be Summer ...
Everything concerning the weather and Nature in general seems to be going haywire.

I'll take a look at the exhibitions and museum programme later and see what's on indoors.

I like the sound of the rain pattering on the bus roof though, and on the canopy of tree branches in the park.

There's always something positive if you look for it.

My kind of weather. I love the day-to-day unpredictability of it here in the UK.

Glencoe looks very mysterious with purple mountains and clouds and brooding darkness even when the sun shines.
Visitors can appreciate the whisky and absorb the atmosphere.

I wanted to see the date of these posts, but the dates here don't include the year. I wonder why - it would be helpful if they did.

Tis the season of red fruits - cherries, strawberries, raspberries... mmm!!!
Even better with fresh whipped cream or a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
Bliss! (Closes eyes with a sigh of contentment...)

That's weird, Stardust - because the year definitely shows for me.  shrug  (For instance, your penultimate post here is showing [me] the date as Wednesday, August 10, 2011).
Perhaps it depends on the date preference you have set in your personal Profile(?)

Well it was on my own time. I juggle my hours to suit work and always do too much overtime. I wouldn't want to give the impression that I'm cruising the internet at times when I should be doing work. But yes, a break always boosts the energy levels, you're right there, Kitkat.

It was the birds that made me happy this morning, it was bright and sunny and they were all singing away cheerfully. Storms predicted for the afternoon but at least I've had the bright spot of the day already.  happyheart

Je suis Charlie

Post by Stardust on Mon 12 Jan 2015 - 11:31

As the entire world has shown in the last few days, following the tragic events in Paris, if we unite in love and light we will always conquer hate and darkness. We've witnessed millions the world over coming together as one, united with a single heartbeat under the unique banner: "Je suis Charlie".

My faith in mankind is restored, in spite of the wicked few who aim only to destroy and kill. But I also feel pity for those who let themselves be indoctrinated.

Long may Sunday 11th January 2015 continue to vibrate in millions of hearts and homes. I was there too in the massive crowds and it felt so uplifting despite the sadness. This is how the world's populations should be all the time, walking together in a silent march against terrorism, holding hands and hugging one another as brothers and sisters. So sad that 12 at Charlie, then 5 more in the Kosher supermarket, had to die to make this possible, but we honoured their memory in a community of souls.

The savage attack on Charlie Hebdo tilted the balance but we also remember all those who have already given their lives and continue to die the world over because of terrorism.

Seeing in all the marches worldwide this last week that human beings are capable of such unity and love makes it so much easier to believe in an afterlife; that death cannot be the end.

I love you all. We are all Charlie.

Yes, it's wonderful to see people all over come together to unite in solidarity, but as you say, Stardust, what a crying shame that it takes such a horrific disaster in order to make this happen.  Has not this ever been the case throughout history(?)  Wars and disastrous events bring people together the world over in resolve - for a time at least ... until the next one comes along ....



Photo: AP  Several thousand people gather in solidarity with victims of two terrorist attacks in Paris, one at the office of weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo and another at a kosher market, in front of the presidential office at the Hofburg palace, in Vienna, Austria, Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015.


Tens of thousands of people gathered in cities around the world on Sunday to honor the 17 victims who died during three days of bloodshed in Paris last week, and to support freedom of expression.

The biggest event was in Paris, where over a million people, including more than 40 world leaders, streamed into the heart of the city for a rally of national unity, days after the attacks on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, police officers and a kosher grocery.

A look at the gatherings in other cities across the globe:

Hello Feather, you lovely lady. I've been busy with changes at work so it's a while since I was here, but all is fine, as I hope it is with you too. happyheart Are you mended now (in mind and body)?

I've just had to edit some of my previous comments here because there was a weird green overexcited alien jumping up and down and waving in there and I had to zap him.

Maybe a problem with Photobucket, I never go there anymore though I still have an account. It was pirated once already so I locked it, but maybe hackers got around that again, their security system leaves something to be desired I think. Somebody had added some undesired photos to my account and it niggled me no end, plus I'd carefully adjusted the size of each photo for forum or avatar and a lot of them had been tampered with, so I gave up. Bye bye Photobucket.

No, not Photobucket after all, I see the alien is in the Smileys, but he's making me go crosseyed and twitchy so he'll stay zapped.

Must be nice in Orkney at the moment. Here it's sunny and bright, but makes me sad to think the days will soon start becoming shorter again.

Take care, my friend, and give Chica a cuddle for me.

Hello Stardust. I'm so glad you're back. I too have been absent for a while. I seem to be on the mend physically and mentally.I'm relieved about that.

We have had no summer in Orkney.In all my years I have never seen the like of it. There has been no heat. The wind has remained cold and too strong every day. There are frequent showers as well.

My son, Ray, is in Nantes with friends over this weekend. There is an event in which his kind of music is being played. I use the term,"music" , loosely. It's all Heavy Metal rubbish.

I haven't yet made any plans re holidays yet. I may take a trip to Inverness later as I have a cousin who lives there and the shopping is good.

I must take Chica for a run on Scapa Beach so cheers for now. I'm happy to be in touch with you again. Love, Feather.xxx.

Great to hear you're improving and getting better, even though it's a slow process.

Miserable weather doesn't do much to raise the spirits, I hope it turns soon.

Heard something about this music festival on the radio yesterday but can't remember what they called it, some of the music's ok but not generally my style either.

Ah, holidays... not always restful but the change is a boost, new surroundings and people, and it's grand to get back home again afterwards.

Sounds fun, does Chica enjoy running along the beach and does she go for a dip? (Too cold).

My coffee's getting cold. Have to be quiet as others are sleeping, Sleep tiptoe... gotta put the computer away so I don't spill anything on it. Bye for now.

So sorry, Stardust .. wary   I think it may well be my fault that you have been invaded with little green men .. sidestep

Not intentionally, of course, you must understand  surprised  ...  All I did was to add a new smiley to the forum (a very animated little green man - which I really took a liking to giggle ) and all the smilies have to be called something - so I called him 'Alien' - not realising that we already had a smiley here calle 'Alien', so what seems to have happened is that our new little green man must have replaced it (whatever it was  shrug ).   sorry   Poor 'Alien' has been abducted by aliens ....   (They must be from the Moon, because they have obviously taken a liking to Stardust's blogthread here, called 'Stardust on the Moon'.  Perhaps they felt they might feel at home here.  cheesy ).

alien

Yes, I know ... time to get my coat .....

Oh help!
You mean to say, dear Kitkat, that any previous Alien smileys I used in other posts will also have been replaced with this new over-excited green Alien? Every time he bangs his chin on the table I feel it too, poor wee Alien, he's in a right old panic.
Oh well, such is life... sigh...
cheesy

Hot, hotter, ever hotter, hottest ...

If it gets any hotter I'll be a melted puddle on the floor.
Now I understand the true meaning of "wilting".

Been trying mind over matter, imagining a huge tub of ice-cream or bathing in a cool ocean, but not having much success so far.

I've been feeding myself round pink radishes, they are very refreshing, and drinking fizzy water. If I drink much more water we'll hear it sploshing around when I walk.

How is it up there where you are, Feather, shall I send you some of my sunshine?
