Am I the only one to think it a bit crazy to start military games with live shells within spitting distance of the border of a belligerent unpredictable neighbour? A neighbour who doesn't recognise said border and who'd sent messages asking for the shelling to stop or they will fire?

Maybe better to go back to hiding head in sand.

Indeed, it does seem a bit... unwise, shall we say?

Of course, anyone in control of that many weapons has to be a little nuts. A little commonsense would go a long way, I say.

--Hey, that holds true worldwide!  afro

Unfortunately, commonsense is decidedly lacking in the human race... sanity, too.

Today is a porridge day. Definitely. LOTS of snow overnight. My car is a meringue. The road won't get cleared as it's not a bus route. I'm stuck.  Angry

Midnight last night 4 lads broke into my next door neighbours garden. Made a lot of noise breaking a fence ready for their getaway. Police called and my neighbour and his mate (both young fit blokes) gave chase and caught one of the intruders. They'd leant their bikes against a skip ready for quick getaway. The captured one argued with the policeman that they were exercising their Human Rights to ramble! LOL. Meanwhile the neighbour's giant Japanese Akita dog slept in the garage.

No snow here.  Sad  I quite fancy a bit of snow.

Last weekend the local paper said snow was on it's way at the beginning of the week. Monday it said, arctic storms were coming and the county would be hit by snow within a few days. Yesterday it said there's a risk of snow by the end of the week. I reckon I could be a weatherman: tonight it will be cold and dark and there will be a very low risk of some weather.

I can't get going on anything this week. I reckon my bio-rhythms must be at a low ebb.

I think I'll have another coffee.

Del, try this out. Best money I've ever spent: http://www.amazon.com/Proteus-Light-Sound-Machine-System/dp/B000RCHFI6%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAJASE6HSSVXTNREYQ%26tag%3Dsmtfx1-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB000RCHFI6

Yes, it actually works. I mainly use it to get to sleep but the wake up, learn, and energy functions all work too. All this and it's trippy as hell.  Wink

I eat the porridge, view the snow, and play metaphors with the meringue.  Wink

It's the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States, and I've got several family members here for a few days: mom, dad, sister, and two aunts. After spending the last couple days doing extra shopping, cleaning and tidying, it's good to relax and spend some time with them. Being separated by a few hundred miles means I don't see them that often.

It seems to me, playing metaphors with family might be dangerous... You may learn more than you want to know.

No, you can play with meringue, but it's frowned upon. We like a bit of blood, you see, so you need either something hard like a shank, or a really fresh steak... we're not particular on the animal. afro

I can't believe you haven't heard of it, Pharo! The metaphors fly free in my neck of the woods... if we don't catch them.
