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?

I woud say it's warm with a refreshing breeze. I can't stand too much heat but I'm enjoying today as we have had no summer till now.Poppies and Lupins are blooming in my new garden. Roses are budding and most shrubs are shooting up and spreading out.This gives me enormous pleasure. An Escallonia hedge has been planted and five Golden Leylandii at stratigic corners for shelter.

I don't know all the plants you mention, but your description conjures up a gorgeous picture, it sounds grand, Feather. A deckchair to sit in and rest in the garden, magazine handy, cool lemonade, Chica snoozing in the grass, birds singing in the bushes, bees and butterflies flitting among the flowers. Your own little paradise.

Odd fireworks still going off, had this for the last few nights, now we've got the fire engine rushing past with it's siren blaring at 1.15 in the morning.
Lots of smoke earlier this evening, I thought our block was on fire, but false alert.
More fireworks tomorrow, and the day off too, just as well after these late nights.
Just had several very pretty fireworks blazing the sky with bouquets of sparkling silver sprays and stars, great while it lasted.
Seems to have calmed down now. Oh well, never mind, time to lay our sleepy heads upon our pillows and drift away into the land of dreams.
Goodnight...  zzz zzz zzz

Blue moon on Friday 31st July.
Full moon twice in the same month, doesn't happen very often.

Heavy rain over my way today but was pleased to have the cooler temperature after the heatwave.

I found a new garden centre which is at least half the price of all the others' so I've got three new plants. toast Pic up soon!

The term 'once in a blue Moon' means that that something is very rare. But just how rare, depends on your definition.

In astronomy, a Blue Moon is a full Moon, which doesn't quite fit in with the months in our calendar. However, there are two completely different ways of calculating which full Moon is a Blue Moon.

It's funny how my reaction to the moon has changed over the years:-
When I was at Uni, there was a song which said it all for me at the time.

I see the moon, the moon sees me
Down through the leaves of the old oak tree
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love.
Over the mountains, over the sea
Back where my heart is longing tobe,
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love.

I often sat in the students' common room, looking up into the sky with such a longing in my heart for home and Morris.

Now, for me, the moon is just a deceptive chunk of rock pretending to be something magical.

Another day of gales in Orkney. Poppies are doing a frantic dance to cajole the wind into submission but the wind is having none of it and is determined to chop off their heads. This is the summer that never was. I hope it's not a trend for the future. hairpull

I bet it's not as bad as here though. surprised   Devon and Cornwall have got it real bad: (see the video)

Devon and Cornwall beaches closed amid bad weather

Cars have been moved by large waves and people have been advised not to enter the sea at a number of beaches after a big swell and strong winds hit the south-west of England.

Several vehicles were battered by the waves, which crashed over the sea wall at Ilfracombe Harbour, in north Devon.

Beaches including Croyde and some in Newquay, Cornwall, have been "red flagged" by the RNLI because of the dangerous conditions.

The charity said Tolcarne and Porth in Newquay were the only beaches currently open.

Red flags warn people not to enter the water because of the dangerous conditions.

I love your description, Feather, very poetic.

I'm actually sitting here in 27°C with the shutters closed to keep in the cool. Outside it's bright sunshine and much hotter of course.
Sorry you're having a rather miserable Summer, I hope it cheers up soon.

Road workers with extremely noisy machines and flashing lights kept us awake for hours. I would have thought it wasn't allowed for them to carry out road resurfacing work in the middle of the night. They had this great big lorry-like contraption going back and forth, up and down the road, and other vehicles with flashing lights - great when you're trying to get to sleep. The road is now very much higher than before, practically level with the pavement, it looks really weird.

So shocked and saddened to hear of the recent events in Paris.  I hope you and yours are safe and well, Stardust. 
Of course, everyone the whole world over is affected by these terrible events, but those who are there in the midst of it all must surely feel the full force and horror of it all - and may well personally know or know of friends and/or relatives of some of those whose lives have ended so horribly.   Sad


From The Telegraph:

Paris terror attacks: Everything we know so far on Saturday night




At least 129 people have been killed in seven separate attacks across Paris, including 82 during a hostage situation at Bataclan, a music venue

It took a while to identify all the victims. Some of the families were frantic with worry, going from hospital to hospital looking for a loved one, knowing that the longer it took the less hope there was.

One by one, we followed the searches, hoping with the relatives and friends, sharing in their tears, until one by one the messages were posted that Marie, Mathias, Valeria, Elif, Djamila, Mohamed, ... were gone, departed from this life, taken before their time.

All they wanted was a pleasant evening out, a happy start to their weekend, but what they got was sudden oblivion or a terrifying race to save their life.

So many victims were young, smiling in the photos, full of life and looking forward to bright futures. Muslim, Jewish, Christian, other religions, from all different origins, skin of all colours, joined together in a macabre journey to wherever we go after here.

A wife, dying in her husbands arms, a young couple in the Bataclan joined for eternity in death, strangers trying to run to safety cut down and falling as one in a mass of bodies... a horror, meaningless, needless...

May all these blessed souls now have found peace.

Stardust - Where aaaaaaaaaaaaare you?

Post by Kitkat on 4th March 2016, 15:52

Stardust - where did  you go?  We have not seen you around here since your post about the size of the avatars:
here  arrow  https://krazykats.forumotion.co.uk/t776-avatars

Added (edited) after clicking Send:
As soon as I posted the message the avatar size went back to normal, so what happened there then?
shrug Shocked

There's no change and no glitch.  In the Blogs sections the avatars are smaller and they are to the left of the postings.  It's always been that way.  There are other differences in the Blogs sections also.  (That's why I was asking the Bloggers (in Feather's Blog I think it was) if they prefer it set out as a Blog - or conforming with the rest of the Forum.)  Both you and Feather said you prefer to keep it in Blog form.  Smile

I do hope that's not the reason for why you haven't been around for a while - and I'm also hoping that you are OK and all is well with you?  Your cheery philosophical musings are greatly missed around these parts.  sunny  Please do pop in, if only briefly, just to let us know that you are okay.  happyheart
As you will see from my reply to that post, the avatars resizing only happens/happened in the Blogs section of the Forum (this area).  This whole Blogs section has now been changed back to match up with the rest of the forums, so the avatar pics and profiles show the same details as the rest of the Forum.

I started out with the forums so I've stayed on here and on LAL. I've grown attached to some members who are like an extended 'virtual' family and I like to know how everyone's doing.

We seem to have gone over all the aspects of spirituality over the years, so there's not much new to add now, but there are plenty of other topics and I don't intend to stop visiting as long as the forums keep going. It's nice to be back.

Aspects surrounding spirituality, life and death can never be depleted.  There is so much yet to discover.
I am currently compiling a comprehensive list of noted now deceased scientists, parapsychologists, investigators & researchers of Spiritualism and Psychic Phenomena.  Still a work in progress, that list can be found here:
http://lightafterlife.freeforums.org/noted-deceased-scientists-researchers-of-spiritualism-psi-t1250.html

These people contributed so much to our current understanding of life and death as we now know it and there is much to learn by simply clicking into each indvidual's name on that list to discover the fruits of their dedication.  

There are still questions to be asked, research investigations and studies to be carried out - and there always will be.  Many prominent scientists, psychologists, philosophers and researchers still living today are dedicating much of their fields of speciality into attempting to answer some of those questions and their research is ongoing.  They (and we) now have the added advantage of the internet to assist in sharing and making available much of the results of their investigations and the further questions which arise as a result of their findings.  It's a never-ending quest for knowledge and we have it all available at our fingertips.
