Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

LYNETTE - I'm sorry about all the bother you've had. OG has a point about using a bigger screen, if you have one. Years ago, I ordered two new office chairs instead of just one... OH - Good that you and J are both better. ANNETTE - my brother has what he describes as pins and needles all down his right side but has more power in his right hand so that can only be a good sign. He has a lot of new meds, moaning about that of course ! Grey day here. I tripped on the stairs early on Monday morning so limped to Tesco this morning. Nothing to complain about but I must learn to move a bit more slowly, maybe!!
Morning all: Sounds like many of us are 'in the wars' as my mum would say.
Heather: Re your bro - that is encouraging - I'd think.
Clare: The person with the patience in our house isn't me I'm afraid, but maybe that's because OH is a world-class procrastinator: "Let me think about it," being his favorite response. (Between you and me, I've stopped asking about some stuff.)
OG: Wow, That's amazing about your minister. I've tried using timetables for various household chores and it really does help; stops me from overdoing it in the garden. Not that I've been paying any attention to the garden what with all that's been going on inside the house, but they're forecasting a definite cooling trend this weekend, so it's on my list. I'm also limiting my time writing letters to Democratic voters (who haven't voted recently) in various states otherwise it gets tedious. We're provided with a typed introduction and have to add our own handwritten "story" about the importance of voting in a couple of sentences. Envelopes are handwritten too - and we supply the stamps. Our group here (coordinated by a larger national group) has completed more than 1,000 letters so far. Meanwhile, one of my friends up north is writing letters on behalf of the Sierra Club (a nationwide conservation group). I like it that your church gardener is also a poet.
Still wondering how bjane and wendyb are doing. Also Diane and her fight with the powers that be, which are heavily Republican in Indiana.....
Misty here today; have worked up a list for groceries, but it's the same old same old and I'm thinking I should be more adventuresome. Sigh.
