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 11th July 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.

Happy Bastille Day, Stardust. sunny

I hope you enjoy your day off and all the celebrations.

(Slightly different "celebration" marches in Northern Ireland yesterday - 12th July)
Every year heralds trouble on that occasion.

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.

I once spent a day in Glencoe, Scotland where we experienced the four seasons all in the same day. Brilliant.

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 love you I love you

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...)

The little pleasures of life are sometimes the best of all.  happyheart

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(?)

So nice to get the chance to have a little "me time", isn't it - especially when you get that chance at work. sunny

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 12th January 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.

happyheart   happyheart

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.

Feather wrote: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.
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 ).

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...

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?
