Welcome Shelly and thank you for the lovely decorations. Salt is definately the best way to get rid of slugs,snails and leeches.

AuntySherlock Report 8 Dec 2009 23:10

I am sending you a link. This was sent to me and I have passed it on to my friends and aquaintances who have sent me soppy, nauseating, sugary, warm fuzzy emails throughout the year.

So with hearts and flowers, lukewarm fuzzies and a Merry Christmas to all of you. Bah Humbug!!! Here is your Christmas video.

Sound turned up.

Cut and paste the link below. (OK clicking it is not going to work, is it??)


RockyMountainShy Report 9 Dec 2009 00:13

AuntySherlock Report 9 Dec 2009 03:07

Oh goodness RMS. Not you too!! Enough to make a thinking person throw up!!


RockyMountainShy Report 9 Dec 2009 03:16

maybe because I don't understand what it is about !


Mazfromnorf Report 9 Dec 2009 06:23

morning alll
aunty i liked that the meercats are brilliant well rumour has it i have the afternoon off


AuntySherlock Report 9 Dec 2009 07:00

No I didn't understand it either. The only info I have is that it is an excellent Christmas video.

Maz, afternoon off. Are we visiting or expecting visitors. Has Her Maj visited your establishment and decreed a half day holiday. Excellent, catapult her worshipfulness over here to do the same. Although I think I can hang out for the next few days and then we have big holidays.

I have to go send a detailed explanation to Ancestry on why I don't like something because it does not work properly. Don't know why I don't keep my mouth shut!!!


Mazfromnorf Report 9 Dec 2009 15:36

lol Aunty I finish at 2pm everyday but today I am at home until youth club this evening I have just shampoo the stairs and landing ,,Well it is nearly christmas
I have made a start I now need to look and see what bedding I have as I have a house full for christmas ,Daughters Fianc`ee is allegic to cats lol .so this will be fun and they love him
on the video link when i looked its got about three links the one i saw was animals singing but there is another link with a proverb too


AuntySherlock Report 9 Dec 2009 19:04

Hi Maz, It is the animals singing. Not very long. I think the proverb comes in at the end. Reckon it's a do gooders video.

Understand your reluctance to download anything DET. Are you driving or walking between the two h ouses. If driving why don't you ask the workmen the best place to cross the roads. And if walking well they could always put you into one of their wheelbarrrows and trundle you across!!

Q for LG. Nervous about the next game??? Liverpool isn't it??

On the Leader Board of Thread Killing I reckon I might just be on top, or very near to it. Oh I have been practising, and had lots of success.

Just had reply from Ancestry re my query. They are working on the problem and hope to have a solution soon. Information is very welcome because it means I was not having a senior's moment and doing something creative.


YG Report 9 Dec 2009 21:00
