Yes, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's just that every time I find myself in a group of people I seem to be the one whose thoughts and outlook are different from everyone else's. When I was younger I was forever getting criticised for not fitting in and generally not even trying to fit in - some of my high school reports made depressing reading, it seemed that what the teachers wanted most (apart from the homework issues) was for me to be like my 'peers'. I've certainly found that the older I get the more it seems that I get looked on as being a 'character', rather than deliberately awkward. I think that you get away with more eccentric behaviour, the older you get - which is more than useful for me!
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

Gosh, DIANE that is horrendous. Thinking about you...
Have just seen pics online. A dreadful situation.
Put up our small tree last night - beginning to feel festive now. :-) We went to a nursery at lunchtime today to buy a real tree for our conservatory but after we had chosen it, my OH went white when the man stated the price - I don't think we'll have one next year!!
OMG nothing on news about weather calamities but yet another Space celebrity. MSNBC the only channel showing anything right now. Sooooo tired of celebrities.
Diane: Looks like more storms forecast through today and tonight????
