or is it just very quiet here tonight?

Just wondering as there as been a series of films on one of the channels this week, disastrous storms and time vortex thingies ( I missed the end of the one tonight...did the plane get back, or forward as the case may be ?) ... have you all been beamed up or is everyone just out enjoying themselves ( or in enjoying themselves) :-D

lol Wend, careful when you peel it off, it can hurt :-0

I've come upstairs to avoid the kitty, who seems to have a bit of a mad half hour just before bedtime. Dan is doing college work and so no company at all lol. I did get one of the FT boxfiles out to have a look, but the cat decided it looked ' inviting to play in' so that was a no no too :-D

As the weeks go by this site seems to lose more and more posters, you're even off soon aren't you Rose?

~~~~ to all <3 <3 :-D :-D ;-)

That's just it Lynda, I am off in 2/3 days time and I was hoping it would be lively on here before I go ;-) out with a bang and not a whimper maybe :-)

I've been having a new NCIS fix.........4 back to back,


Wend Report 17 Jan 2014 22:26

Lol Rose and Sue, you is gawjuss, especially those begonias - I'm just about to check mine over in readiness for Spring, hee hee :-D

I've been very absorbed checking out my German rellies to-day, after reading something on Find Ancestors earlier and I'm very pleased with what I've found. The surname is a very tricky one, but when you have first names like Antonius/ Antonii, Engelbert/Engelbert/Engelbirth and Josephus/Joseph, not to mention Margarethae, it makes it even more difficult :-0

Kay I think I have watched every NCIS there is lol. burning question: Gibbs, with the moustache or without ? ;-)

Glad you have found something useful Wend :-D

Rose, perhaps everyone is saving all the best discussions
Until after you have left ...

So as not to tempt you to "pay" to stay, and go shoeless
