A heart so big...

Post by Stardust on Fri 20 Jan 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.

happyheart

Secret Paris

Post by Stardust on Sun 22 Jan 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.

happyheart

Cold remedies

Post by Stardust on Mon 30 Jan 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 Thu 16 Feb 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.

happyheart

Nostalgia

Post by Stardust on Sun 19 Mar 2017, 12:17



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.

Be okay tomorrow I guess ...

Well it's been over a month now since hearing a peep out of our Feather since that last post - and even longer to have heard from Stardust.  I must admit, I'm a starting to get a wee bit anxious now for both of them.  It's just not like either of them not to pop in over such a length of time.

Please, girls - if  you happen to read this, let us know that you're ok.

  (You don't even have to post words if you're not feeling in the mood for it - just give us a thumbs up smiley or summat ...)

I apparently got your message through the ether, Kitkat, since something made me pop in here during a pause.

Been very busy and still lots to do and a new project coming up soon too.

Hope everyone's fine.

Love to all.

Tortoise does a runner

Post by Stardust on Fri 09 Jun 2017, 15:04

Home early the other day.

As it was a lovely sunny day I decided to stroll through a couple of quiet back roads with pretty houses and gardens all along both sides.

Passing a small supermarket, I got in some groceries and was walking home admiring the gardens when I saw a tortoise walking towards me right smack bang in the middle of the road.

Shocked Huh?

I rang the bells on the garden gates round about, no answer. Shouted out for anyone there, no answer.

Walked a bit further, keeping up with the tortoise to make sure it wasn't run over. I couldn't pick it up cos loaded with groceries (me, not the tortoise).

cheesy

Eventually I heard a scraping noise in one of the gardens and a lady came out to see what the fuss was about, closely followed by hubby. Once I'd explained and she saw the tortoise she picked it up and took it to safety in her own garden, whereupon her hubby said it might belong to a couple of girls who lived further up who had a tortoise. Lady went and rang their bell and sure enough the escapee was theirs and they promptly went along to retrieve it from the neighbour. All's well that ends well. I hope they found out how and where the tortoise got out and blocked up the hole.

So, I saved a tortoise and it felt great. happyheart

Hi Stardust,

I hope all is well with you. happyheart

You will notice that your cute little peeping cat avatar has now changed back to your previous one.  
This is because we unfortunately lost a lot of images here on the board when Photobucket decided to place a charge on the use of their site and they now demand a fee of $499 if anyone wants to view their pics (even the ones that were quite legitimately uploaded as free at the time!)  See https://krazykats.forumotion.co.uk/t1031-photobucket

Still finding the odd blank space where a PB image used to be. The ranks have been affected also, so they have been scrapped for the moment, also some of our smilies have disappeared, but we will gradually get back to near enough how it used to be.
Maybe it was time for a change anyway.

Thanks, Kitkat. The avatar you've put back goes well with my username so I guess I'll keep that one.

Photobucket just gets worse and worse in my opinion, and now they want us to pay...
I guess that's the end of my account there then.

Not been on the forums or even NASA for a while. We're working on a new project that takes up a lot more time, plus other things happen in life that require time too, so all in all the forums dropped by the wayside. Don't worry if I disappear again, I'll always be back when I can.

It doesn't look like Feather has been here either. Have you heard from her and is she ok, Kitkat?

Very Happy

Post no. 283 on Feather's Blog (Feather by the Sea) explains Feather's absence.  I have heard from her more recently since that.  She's OK - she was soon to have the other eye done at that time (that was about a week ago).  She told me she is definitely coming back on the forum, just as soon as she is able.

Good, and thanks for the update, Kitkat.
I do remember reading Feather had a cataract op but I thought the other eye would have been done too before now. Poor Feather, must be going around in a haze. I hope she's back soon.
Very Happy

Actually, just checked, and it was more than a week ago (17th August, to be exact!) when she said regarding the second eye - she has 6 more weeks of drops to clear fluid at the back of the eye, and she was seeing the eye consultant in few days' time (from then) to check up on the first eye done.

Sometimes things get so hectic a person yearns for an oasis of calm to recharge the energy levels far from the noise and the crowds.
confused.
Still, there have been some lighter moments:
Stranger in the supermarket told me to take care cooking my broccoli because he'd reduced his own to a mushy pulp.
Then he stopped me again later to ask advice on bottled water because he'd never tried one of the two I bought.
I've noticed a lot of people like to look in other trolleys or baskets to see what other folk have bought. I do it myself at times, it can be quite an eye opener...

I know the feeling. catlick It's times like those that you need to seek out that inner oasis of calm - within yourself.
10 mins of meditation can work wonders. Wink

You'd be surprised how much you can tell about a person just from the contents of their supermarket trolley.  pirat

I hope tomorrow will be a calmer and less hectic day for you Stardust. wave

Hello,everybody. I've been selfish just thinking about myself when all of you could have helped me get over the anxiety/depression I've had all summer. It's a horrible affliction which recurs and is very hard to cure. It makes me draw into myself as it takes all my energy to do anything. It affects me physically as well as mentally. I don't want to be bothered to do anything much. Each day is the same as all the others. The monotony is awful and I often cannot eat because of the adrenalin pangs shooting through my stomach.That's the nerves that go with anxiety. I've lost over a stone in weight.Very few people seem to understand how debilitating the condition is. I constantly make mountains out of mole hills. I'll shut up now.

Hey there, dear Feather, it is sooooo lovely to see you posting here again and to learn how you are.

Apparently, making yourself smile even a fake smile does in fact release endorphins which lift your mood a little and it all helps to combat that dark depression which drowns you in the depths of the darkest loch, so pull your lips into a smile whenever you can.

There are no molehills in such a state, every day presents an Everest to climb, but you can do it, I have great faith in you.

The trouble with your eyes can't have helped, so I hope they are better now and you can see well again. The world is beautiful, most mornings I watch the sunrise from my window if I'm not already out, though it's a rarer sight now it rises later every day. I remind myself how lucky we are to have this gorgeous planet (even if people too often spoil it). Nature offers us so many gifts each day, so many reasons to make a heart burst with joy. Don't bow your head under the weight of your anxiety, lift it up and look at all the reasons to be happy. It's hard to grope a way through the depression but you must never give up trying, dear Feather. We are all linked together, so you are never really alone.
happyheart

Sounds like maybe your Dr should change your medication, since the present treatment for your depression doesn't seem to be helping much?

Catch the positive waves that I am sending your way... hug

Good morning, my dear friend. Your advice and kind messages are always appreciated so much.You have in abundance some very fine qualities--wisdom, compassion, generosity and intuition. To think that we have never met seems impossible. You are a truer friend tome than many I have met.I treasure that fact. I feel the same about Kitkat. Bless you both.xx.

You're too kind, dear Feather, and you could address those compliments to yourself you know. There's more light emanating from you than you give yourself credit for.

Have another great big warm hug.
