Hi Everyomne

I am just on my way out.
My deep freezer died this morning in a big flash of sparks so I am off to buy a new on and wait for the insurance to pay me back..
Electrician said it is fusion so we are covered .....thank God.

Wet and winding at the moment and it looks like rain for the rest of the week.

I will check back in tonight ,have to go shopping.



Susan Report 25 May 2010 13:07

Hi Again Everyone

New freezer up and running.

I got so panicked that all my meat would go off I went to town and went from shop to shop and pushed for the best price.
I think I saved myself $160 by doing it.

I went for an upright this time insread of the chest freezer,so good so far..

Hope you all have a lovely day.
I don't think I will be late in bed tonight.


Tina Report 25 May 2010 13:12

Hi Just started today. Have put my grans details in,her date of birth and where she was born, but no matches have come up. I do not know where to start as i don't have much information. Could you give me a leading tip. I would be very grateful for any advise. Thank you Tina.


Cynthia Report 25 May 2010 13:51

Hi folks - I'll send Tina a pm to help her out.

Cooler today and much nicer to be honest. Had quite a busy morning at my volunteer desk today and oohed and aahhed over a 2day old baby. So sweet.

Sue, I have an upright these days....much better on the old back!!

So how was Victoria Day with you Sylvia? I said, how was Victoria Day with you [just in case you have gone deaf with the cannon fire]. lol

Back later - school run and probably tennis..arrghhh.

Hi all

I wore ear plugs!

Sue ...... we bought an upright freezer a year ago ....... it's much easier on the back!!

I got tired of having to hang head downwards over the edge to see what was right at the bottom of the chest freezer .... so when it started to give up the ghost, out it went.

Well, we had had it for about 20 years, and we got it second hand from a friend who'd had it about 10 years!

Raining this morning.

OH starts rehearsals tonight for the last Student Opera of the season ........ Magic Flute, his favourite. The performance opens in early June. They're actually a month later than usual in doing the last show ............ alll because of the Olympics back in February.

There was a Cultural Olympics associated with the "real" Olympics ....... and all normal activity of the winter season was postponed.

The Graduation Ceremonies begin at the university tomorrow (Wednesday) ....... there are 23 ceremonies spread over the week days from tomorrow to the following Wednesday. That means 4 a day on most days.

OH is the Student Marshall, and goes to every single one of them! He gets all dressed up in his doctoral gown and hood from Liverpool Uni ....... they're a lovely bright red.

off to mooch around



SylviaInCanada Report 25 May 2010 19:56

but I've got to have somewhere to keep the fish pie and shepherd's pies


Cynthia Report 25 May 2010 22:07

I'll find space in my fridge Sylvia - fret not. Sounds like your OH is going to be one busy chappie this week - make sure you leave him something to eat whilst you're at my party.

I'd better start moving furniture around on Friday I think.

I'll leave it to the men to bring the 'bottles' I'm sure they can come up with something Scottish :))


FRANK06 Report 25 May 2010 22:17

Oh Sylvia,

I meant have the freezer delivered rather than lugging it home with your bad back ;)

Sorry...........just my sense of humour.

Hey Cynthia, how about Barrs Irn Bru........that's made in Scotland from girders !


Dozey Report 25 May 2010 22:41

I got it Frank. Must share your sense of humour.



SylviaInCanada Report 25 May 2010 22:45

i never even saw it!


FRANK06 Report 25 May 2010 22:51

Heh heh heh...........cheers Jeanie ;))


Dozey Report 25 May 2010 23:12

Well I may take a long time to catch on with this computering lark but I do occasionally get jokes! Not very good at telling them though.

Night night



Dozey Report 26 May 2010 08:07

Haven't got time to troll through all the pages on this thread. Can someone please tell me when the party is so I can see if there is a gap in my social calendar:-))))



SylviaInCanada Report 26 May 2010 18:16

Morning everyone

OH was up at 6am this morning, so he could get out to the university in plenty of time for the Graduation ceremonies that start today ..... the first one is at 8am!! 6 days of this between now and Wednesday next week. 23 ceremonies in all ..... and he goes to every one of them. He's the Student Marshall.

I was also awake early ... so ended up getting up much earlier than usual .......... and made myself a cooked breakfast. Very unusual for me to have that at home ..... bacon, 2 fried eggs, and a slice of fried bread. But I did use Canola oil for cooking! And I drained the bacon.


May 29 ...... this coming Saturday ............. it's Cynthia's birthday

she wants us all to get dressed up as our favourite historical character

or histerical

but we're not supposed to tell anyone, just drop hints, and let others try to guess

I'm have a continuing debate with myself as to whether I should come as a Canadian figure that no-one will have the slightest idea about!

I know ............... I'm a meanie!!

oh ........ we're also supposed to bring a bit of food.



Dozey Report 26 May 2010 19:02

Hi Sylvia

Will dog food do? There seems to be more of that around here than anything else!

Must put my thinking cap on to see who I can appear as.

Haven't done much inputting on my tree this week but it's been a good one for getting new leads.

Catch you later.



Cynthia Report 26 May 2010 19:43

Right..get googling famous historical Canadians quickly!!

Jeanie, we will need plenty of dog food in case FannybyGaslight pops in - she does occasionally frequent this thread - she has dogs and they're beautiful.

I'm actually having trouble trying to decide who my favourite character is to be honest so will have to concentrate harder.

The certificate I have been waiting for arrived this morning...the mother's name is right but no father! #%#%*#%*#&*%# *&%#*&%# or words to that effect!

Sylvia, that breakfast sounds wonderful - wish you could have saved some for me - I love fried bread. Bet your OH looks simply splendid in his scarlet gown - I love traditional wear for special occasions. Will you be having an early night after such an early morning??

Frank, Irn Bru will be lovely thanks.

Right no messaging done yet so had better get cracking.


SylviaInCanada Report 26 May 2010 20:02

not sure about the early night

OH will be late home ....... he's staying out on campus after the last ceremony, will find something to eat out there, because he wants to go to the Graduation Concert tonight that includes several of the students he's been with in the Student Opera shows. It isn't really worth coming home for 30 minutes or so!

I'm also usually a late bird .............. so I may just stay up

have to go for my annual squish tomorrow .......... so that will also be an earlish morning, even if I manage to sleep through his alarm!

wish me luck with that one



Cynthia Report 26 May 2010 21:57

Oh Sylvia....ouch! Hope all goes well. Sounds like OH is the one having all the fun.

Ummm....Josie? Anne? Evelyn? Okay I hope.


Dozey Report 26 May 2010 23:12

What's a squish? Or too rude to explain on here?

Sorry to hear about the (unrepeatable) Certificate. How disappointing for you.

You could view my beautiful Melody in the Rogues Gallery on the Hampshire Greyhound Rescue site. Hasn't been updated for about 18 months because of illness - I'm supposed to be the editor - but I've had nothing to edit.

I think I've decided on a character and I'm working on some clues. Some might be a little difficult to slip into the conversation though.



SylviaInCanada Report 26 May 2010 23:18


squish is my word for mammogram

Not too unspeakable to mention, even on here ..... but more descriptive in my mind!!!
