Well done TGS that is awesome. My day has been alright, worked 12hours in a child filled play centre, with 14 parties runnning so plenty of screaming kids, my ears are still ringing. We have also had f*****g snow for the last two days and got more to expect tomorrow (thank god it's my day off) I hate snow it's cold and wet and cold. Hope everyone else's day hasn't been too bad. :D

That sounds like one heck of a day, much as I like childeren, fourteen parties of them !!!
I am glad itis not just us 'oldies' who hate the wet and cold though, makes me feel much better.

Fired up the fireplace for the first time in eight months. It's a pre-turn of the century ( 1990's) model not allowed in this state anymore ( it burns wood). Had mil over. Invited some friends at the last second. We did corned beef and cabbage. The beef was good- not all those 'fat layers'. First red meat we've cooked in- I can't remember. It was a good night.

I am going to take a course in writing stories. That and I think you can't learn everything from books, or I have been making bad purchases.

I will see how I do and depending on that I will adjust my expectations.

To whoever feels slighted or wronged, I choose to talk in civil discourse. Because that is the way good productive talk that is of benefit is said to have helped. I say this since I don't like to talk to people when they feel that way.

Got some progress done on my project. This past week I decided I needed to reorganize my writing files. Yup, bigger task than I thought it'd be but I'm getting through it.

Neighbors complaining about disappearing cats and wild coyotes...
I swear... A few well-placed paintballs, especially to the genitals, would go far to re-instill some much needed respect for boundaries. I mean to the coyotes, not the neighbors.

.

A new culprit. I have heard pet farms, fur traders, and Chinese takeaways blamed, and reputedly there is a roaring trade in rare breeds. Personally I don't believe any of them, much. Cats are like that, they go walkabout and find somewhere else. Besides I reckon any half decent cat could give an agressor such a hard time there has to be something easier to attack. My brother trapped a feral cat in his kitchen , it bit through a motorcycle gauntlet and down to the bone in his thumb when he caught it.
A favourite Kipling story, 'The cat that walked by itself'. Children's story? Well kids like it too :)

One of my favourite illustrations too, http://www.victorianweb.org/art/illustration/kipling/23.html

I took a peek at my FB page today and man, that was a risk. One guy started several rants and the next thing we knew the threads were exploding with garbage of rants, cursing and you get the idea. It's amazing how contagious aggression can be, especially in the written word.

That's precisely why I don't like Facebook and others in my family. It has no control over what goes over there. It's sort of like the real world. It ought to be studied as silly as this sounds because a lot of people use it. (psychology).

FB- Think of it as hot coals you have to walk across. After awhile the soul becomes impervious. See what I did there? Eh? :)

Eye clinic at Moorfields yesterday, Glaucoma and field test. Boy, they were busy. 2.45 appointment, got seen just after six! Everyone was very apologetic, I felt sorry for the staff, they had an evening clinic after they finished with us. Been having a slight flare which had affected my visual field in right eye, but back tonormal now, there is a bit of a lump behind the eye which swells when I flare and presses on the optic nerve.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve very good news to impart:

The stoma hole in my gut is, for all intents and purposes, closed. There’s a sliver-slit of a hole, but it’s nowhere near as bad as it used to be.

Got told off in the office this morning for working on my novel at my desk between tasks! Sickener is that the guy who I'm pretty sure told my boss used to be a run a small press. Poor form!

When inspiration takes hold you just gotta write! The squealer is just jealous. Poor form indeed :(
