Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please)

Thank you Soberboots and United. You both give very good advice indeed. I have known both him and his (now ex) wife for about 20 years. So I did reach out to him last november when I realised she had gone. We have been in the habit of helping each other out with animals and equipment for a long time...

Re: The Book Club

Oh Mark, this really struck a chord in me today. I have read some earlier works of his but this one was particularly poignant for me today. I am trying to remember a poem or short story - or was it just a saying. Something along the lines of two feuding brothers/neighbors. They lived on each their o...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please)

Thanks you too, Trojan <:)> You guessed correct - we no longer have a police office out here. Everything seems to be being centralised (of course this means everyone out here drink-drives at least on occasions - it's so far between people's houses and there is only one taxi-car). I am too late now, ...

Re: The To Do List

Hi all, Been reading all the posts - and nodding, sending sympathy - and hurra for big and small accomplishments. I have a Google-home speaker (our house-christmas present - i had no idea these things existed until my daughter got a mini one). I think it can be programmed to do things - but I just u...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please)

Thank you Pickles, Danny - and Mark <:)> <:)> <:)> You are all right - but it IS very hard when you try to be kind but then someone in pain exceeds our ability to care. Pickles, and maybe you also, Danny - we have gone through this before. I remember the school teacher (after numerous "episodes") sa...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please)

Hi all - I apologise in advance for a long posting here, but it's maybe a place people see most readily. I'm not in crisis - but I am in a position where someone else is seriously planning to take their life (said person has been having suicidal thoughts for several years). I posted elsewhere that a...

Re: The Games Thread

Ahhh, I got the easy one V ivaldi :) ps the next obvious one gives me the chills - after I read about his background and activities during the war. Quite spoiled the music for me. As did Elton John when I watched an interview with him - he was obviously "blootered" and on other stuff and he complete...

Re: The Games Thread

Loving this game :D J .com by J ethro Tull (1999) - but not half as good as the classic that formed a large part og my youth - The Broadsword and the Beast . Oh I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Being nerdy playing Dungeons and Dragons in someone's smelly bedroom, sneaking fags and nicking bo...

Re: The To Do List

Last out, first in :\: Good morning. Inspired by Rachel's earlier post on tasks and the art of not getting overwhelmed, because there always is something to be done, somewhere. Several of us in here live in some rather unmanageable houses and some of us are more organised than others (I am not). But...

Re: Gardening - Herbs, Roots, Veggies, Flowers & More

Hi Danny, Raches (and all) Are the raised beds you are talking about like the hinged wooden frames that were originally designed to go on pallets and can be stacked in height? Here they sell for about the equivalent of a tenner for cheap untreated ones - and up to 20 or more for more substantial or ...

Re: The To Do List

Pickles, dear - I sometimes think you are not being treated with respect. Having all these home offices IS trying - and having someone constantly talking on meetings likewise. But some basic politeness goes a very long way - and I feel sorry that you and your daughter got humphed at - for trying to ...
