    Joyeux Noël

    (Markus, how can you forget French? It has the 11th most speakers in the world, right above German!)
  • Member, Beta Tester
    It seems it was not listed at the side i copy-pasted it.
  • Member, Beta Tester
    Who cares? It was a nice gesture. Peace and goodwill to all men.......including the French. :))

    Merry Christmas!

    Have a good one Mike, and you Ken(s), and Markus. Likewise all the rest of you guys. I hope that Kathy Quade decides to look in here over the next day or two, so Merry Christmas Kathy. Don't be a stranger.

    They were saying on the news tonight that thousands of people further south are unlikely to have their power restored by midnight tonight. After that there will be no crews working. I don't mind cold turkey but I draw a line at raw. Some Christmas they are going to have.

    Markus, I hope you know I was just teasing you. Richard is right. It was (and is) a nice gesture and sentiment.
    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

    Yes Ken, it did open and it is as you described. :))
    You may have given me an idea. *-:)
  • Member, Beta Tester
    Now look what you've done !!! ;))

    I'm dreaming of a new hair-piece
    Don't want folks knocking me oh no.
    Pray that Santa will listen
    And my new locks will glisten.
    Not something from the Muppet Show.
    I'm dreaming of a Twtter Christmas
    With every message that I write
    World will learn I'm always right.
    And I'm not always looking for a fight.

    I'd to clean up the final line. It was previously about talking might. ;)

    I was reading online about the Big Freeze of 1963 that started with a massive blizzard in the UK on Dec 26, 1962. Richard and/or Paul, do you have any stories or memories from them?
  • Member, Beta Tester
    Richard can tell you stories about the Great Blizzard of 1902. He was just a wee laddie. But he remembers.

    You are going to have to cut back on those hallucinogenic mushrooms Mike. Stick to the cannabis like your shrink advised. Do you stilll have the same nurse? What was her name again? Was it Debbie? She'll look after you. She'll watch you don't fall. :D
    The only thing I remember about the weather in the sixties Ken is that prisoners from Aberdeen's Craiginches prison volunteered to do some snow clearing in the area, and that they completely cleared the snow around our house. When you are young you don't have much of a personal data bank to go on. You assume that there is nothing exceptional about weather events like that. Back then we even used to have annual summers. People didn't have to go abroad experience those.
  • Member, Beta Tester
    I was only 8 but I remember the snow drifts were twice as high as I was and it seemed to last for ever .
    an interest point was that my dad worked for the Ford motor company on their testing. The decided to go to test the cars in the cold so they went to the North of Finland for six weeks however for the 6 weeks it was colder in the UK. The are a couple of good YouTube BBC programs if you search it for 1963 winter uk

    Did you know that all snowflakes are formed round particles of dust? You may as well learn something whilst you're here. :)
  • Member, Beta Tester
    And I thought they were formed from God's dandruff. I have wanted to try some marijuana for my back pain and tremors. But I am having trouble getting some. About the weather. We used to have more rain. Which is saying a lot living in a semi arid zone. And it has been getting warmer. Just one or two degrees. But basically the weather around here is normal. I know what many of you read about the fires. But we have vegetation that hasn't burnt in years. So get an especially dry and windy time. Nature. With the help of man . (firebugs) Can go on a rampage.
    And I really must speak up about the Trump cartoon. I did not like it when bad things were put up about Mr. Obama. They were and now are the President of the United States. So I must protest!
  • Member, Beta Tester
    Mike, The following isn't fake news, it's junk news. =))
    The Golden State will have recreational marijuana starting in January 2018, but the state and individual cities and counties are still working out the details. Local officials are currently working to regulate the licensing for dispensaries before January, but there will be many limitations on the drug.
    How old? 21.
    How much can you have on you? Up to an ounce.
    Can you buy and sell? Yes, through licensed dispensaries.
    Can you smoke it publicly? No.
    Can you grow it? Yes, up to six plants per residence.
    In any cae I'm sure Mikey could get you some at the drop of a hat.
    Donald Trump is rapidly turning the whole world against America. I have never seen any president being publically lampooned in the UK until D.T. took over. He asks for it practically every time he opens his mouth. Have a look at this lot.

    The world is getting warmer. That's a scientific fact. Deserts arre getting bigger and droughts more common. Mass migration is already well advanced as people try to get out of the countries where they are struggling to exist. You say it yourself Mike, "We used to get more rain" consequently your ground temperature is hotter and its moisture content is lower these days. Fires, no matter how they get started, will burn more strongly and become more and more difficult to put out. The tempereature of the seas has risen and results in stronger winds that help to keep the fires burning and reigniting. All of these fires create masses of new CO2. That helps to further increase the temperature of the oceans and things will continue to get steadily worse. I know I keep harping on about it, but somebody has to. In the last 20 or 30 years I have seen the numbers of birdsm animals and insects plummet in this country. Things are getting scarcer and scarcer in a country that was previously famed for its diodiversity. Think abnout it. Have you fewer birds and species at your feeders? Are there fewer insects splattered across the front of your vehicle after a long drive? Are you noticing less roadkill. The evidence is all around us if we only stop and think about it. Everybody who has grandchildren should stop and have a good hard look at themselves.
