A heart so big...

Post by Stardust on 20th January 2017, 20:23

How's this for giving from the heart...

https://www.thedodo.com/homeless-couple-cares-for-dogs-2201697997.html

This couple are on the streets with hardly enough to feed themselves, and yet they managed to take care of several stray dogs and share with them the little they had.

Secret Paris

Post by Stardust on 22nd January 2017, 16:07

Not every one of those in the video, but there are a lot of other secret places to see which are not in that particular film.

The one shown here which I know best is the Petite Ceinture, which used to be a train service round Paris which was later replaced by a bus service (known as the PC) and now tram, presently being completed so it goes all the way round the city. Parts of the old railway line are now green 'nature' walks which are absolutely lovely in the Summer.

Cold remedies

Post by Stardust on 30th January 2017, 14:09

My poor friend is miserable because he has a bad cold which (hangs head) I probably passed on to him (oops!). Except he has it much worse than me.

It’s that time of year though and my own remedies include eating lots of onions, as well as using thyme, ginger, lemon, honey (eucalyptus is best), drinking warm herbal teas and going to bed after drinking a glass of 3 parts hot water, I part each of lemon juice and rum with a couple of teaspoons of honey mixed in.

Mustard (smooth or as seeds) is also good, every little helps on the road to recovery.

Other suggestions you might have would be most welcome.
 
This is what I found on Boots WebMD:
http://www.webmd.boots.com/cold-and-flu/flu-guide/treat-colds-flu-naturally

Also some great suggestions for cold/flu cure recipes here:
https://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelysanders/delicious-diy-cures-for-a-cold-or-flu?utm_term=.bi3aGNeyz4#.sujAVL2nxy
(most suitable for vegetarians, but not all).

Ocean pollution

Post by Stardust on 16th February 2017, 15:31

Is there no part of our planet that polluting humans will leave clean and safe? Now even creatures living in the deepest parts of our oceans are suffering from ingested pollutants.

PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers) were present in all samples of species of amphipod taken from two locations: the Mariana trench in the Western Pacific and the Kermadec trench north of New Zealand (up to 10,000 meters deep in both locations).

Weather forecast definitely said nothing about strong winds and hail... Shocked 

Why does more work always come in on Fridays ? shrug Rolling Eyes confused.

More strong winds, more rain, more cancelled meetings...
more getting drenched every time we have to go outside.
The weather is really miserable at the moment, I pity the poor birds. I guess there's not much chance of hearing one sing at the moment, except this one:

We have a magnificent sunny day starting here, just the one unfortunately because rain is back tomorrow, so we'll have to make the most of today.

Little bird sang to us this morning, as usual for the last few days; it's lovely to lie still a while and just listen to the melodious song before getting up to breakfast. I hope that bird stays with us and continues to brighten our mornings.

This week noticed buds on the trees and bushes, soon be seeing birds collecting twigs and other bits and pieces for their nests. Only 9 days till the Spring, my favourite season.

Nostalgia

Nostalgia, a sigh, a whisper, an echo far far away...
a piece of life gone forever except...
it lives on in the heart and in the soul.

Not everyone's cup of tea (the films), but I love the Bangra music and dancing as well.

Have you seen the recent advert on TV with the chameleon dancing to the music?  Just cracks me up every time I see it.
