Morning all Have been up for a while but decided to watch a bit of wrestling with OH before he gets up to do some more painting, he has a rdo today, and after the rain last night it is not too hot as yet, hopefully it will stay that way. Ducky nice to see you pop in ,and it worked the bedbugs didnt bite last night :-), maybe because it was also a bit cooler. ~~~ to Dreekie not is not me on the roof its my Oh even though his long hair might confuse you for a moment. Whats ya doing tonight Tony??????? :-))))))))) did you like the fotie pic I sent? Lyn welcome home and if I dont catch you again before you go, have another good break :-) Going to do some more fh today so I will be about checking in from time to time. Got sick of the posting last night and gave up. I tried to edit my post and it actually added another one??? Strange, anyway I will see how long it takes this to load. I cant think who mentioned it but I thought it is a good idea not to delete this thread and just to start anouther one if thats what is decided, then we can still refer back to this one if we want to check up anything. Anyway as it was said we will have to see what the boss thinks when she resurfaces :-) Tonights the night :-)))))))) Cheers Sue

Morning all, including Fanny. Been up for 1 and a half hours doing family history! Dreeks - thanks for your offer, I nearly took you up on it, but then Ian from Perth offered. Since he was a full member I sent the info on to him - but be warned, I do have my scottish rellies, and I'll see what queries I can find for you!!! I think it wants to be a sunny day today, no clouds in the sky - but then that could all change. Hope you all have a great day - oh, and thanks Ducky for all your pickles which I received courtesy of Laurie. Some great shots too. Deebs restaurant certainly looked very pretty in the pics. Love Jood

Morning all (well it is qtr to 1 in the morning!!) Went out to a Trivia Night at the Oatley Pub - and yes of course we won!! Shared $200 between 9 mini brain pots!! Have just had time to unpack my case from the 5 night stay at Mudgee and now we are off again (today) down the South Coast until the weekend after this. Thank you to all the gorgeous Wattlers who made the Mudgee Meet such a special weekend. Also of course to Lew for her fabulous organisation and such a wonderful night at her beautiful abode on the hills of Mudgee. Goodnight all - have to pay some more bills before retiring for the night. Talk to you when I return to Sydney. Lyn

She's just got a new puter. Oh queen triff, how could such things happen to you just now.I could send the Genie if you like, but bags. the bottle. ts time for a bit of tv viewing so goodnight {i sincerely hope so}Love and hugz to all wot needs 'em Me

Must have had the tremors Tassie lol I meant 21100 (I think?) It honestly does not worry me whether we start from the beginning or not. Is Ancestry still free this week? I need to look up a census in 1871 & 1881. I hope you werent standing on the roof waving your top at Dreekie, Tas ! Jood

Evening Wattlers Well cant say I have had trouble with posting messages on here, Cat and myself certainly didnt this morning :-) When the number was up for grabs lol. But if others are having trouble and the majority want to stat again Im fine with that too. Jood 211000 will take a while to get to that as we are only at 21000 lol I know you accidently added another 0 :-) Took Dannielle out to a service to commemorate the Scouting movement going 100 years. The rain had ended by the time we had tea, but at least we got some :-) and no leaks HZ. Glad you liked my top Dreekie :-) OOPPSS Spoke too sooon, Just had trouble loading this message:-( Cheers Sue

Why does No one listen to me!!! You can have as much rain/water as you want from Yorkshire as it's been chunking it down (Being polite Ladie) lols since last night. A bit of flooding in Leeds as usual, I live at the top of a hill so I'm ok! Lookup offer's I go to my local LDS centre every Tuesday, they have GRO's etc for England, Scotland Wales and Ireland, if anyone wants help etc let me know. Have done some resarch and about to take some photos for GR friend in Wollongong. (seen photos of there Samdra, looks lovely) see uze later of for late brekkie Dreekie

Thanks Jood, Just got rest of photo's, names to faces. Mudgee's and non-Mudgee's. thanks Dreekie


Judy Report 22 Feb 2007 09:30

I bin thinking!!!!!!!! If everyone is having trouble getting on the Wattle thread, why don't we stop at 211000 and start from 0 again????? Just a thought. Merle where didya buy your empty blue bottle from (they are the best). Good luck with your oils. Mary, I hope you have been reading your emails - but don't worry if you can't understand them (I probably wouldn't either), your son might, though. Quiet tonight, maybe everyone is doing nekkid rain dances. My 'sort of' cousin in Lockhart is estatic, they got 33cm of rain yesterday. First time since I don't know when. Laurie how is Ray, what was wrong with him? Is he ok now? Jood

Good evening Wattlers, I’m having a great little chortle here reading my Email and looking at pickles and jokes, loved the bear on the exercise machine, Sandra I’m glad our treadmill at curves doesn’t accelerate LOL !! Lew, your Folly is a magic place and you are indeed lucky to be in charge of it. Drat Trifles, how b…y annoying about your bathroom. It must have heard about our roof above the kitchen which has also been an ongoing issue whenever water is about! Either toooo much , or NOT ENOUGH !! Anna, Anna, you too could have danced nekked if you wished – feel free ! Tony have a great night out I’m sure your sister will love her gift…. And will remind you about Inflation, and Interest etc …… Yes a couple of times in the last few days I have had GR probs, perhaps we need to follow Dreekie''s hint and start a new thread. Merle I can imagine your aroma oils from here, love them but lavender gives me a bad headache. Will be interesting to see how you go tonight. I feel sorry for the couple you mentioned, having a shop right across from a courthouse, we get to see a bit of similar activity here. Tonight we have a challenge at home, DD15 will be auditioning at school tomorrow for a drama department play, she made the shortlist of 15 for 8 roles ( Years 10 and 11 together), they have to prepare a given piece and research a synopsis of the play and its’ characters for the interview. She’s really rapt to be given a chance because she’s not in the Drama elective. It’s a Tom Stoppard play so she’s googling and getting plenty of information. Keeping my fingers crossed for lunchtime tomorrow! Tassie, hope it’s raining and that nothing leaks lol….. Catch you all tomorrow………. ~~~~~~~~~ Hz

Hi Cats (speakin of which, our Cat has just taken a swip at our Jack Russel for walking past him, she's now on my lap as I type. *loody male's eh. Merle, Try and use oils during the days as your body will absorb it and help at night. Tony, I've upgraded my broadband to 8mb, still taking between 5 to 15 minites to post a reply. I mentioned this the other day on this thread. GR's computer can't handle size of this thread, every time you join thread or add reply it first searches whole data base before it starts then when you add reply it does the whole thing agaiin. 'Fraid only answer is to start a new thread!! JA just got you PM, will reply shortley Derek
