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.

Worked out happy and well in the end for the homeless couple and the dogs in that last video. :thumb:

Stardust, you are lucky to live in such a beautiful city. Have you been to all those secret places in Paris shown in the video?

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.

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

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.

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.

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 9 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
