    aw, you poor thing. I know delivery men or even charity collecting men are not allowed to use stairs because their insurance doesn't cover. Personally I think it's quite absurd myself. Well done you for getting it as far as you did on your own. ...

    "Nibs" commented on Barb's Blog "Of unnecessary chapter breaks (and goats)".
    I always thought chapter breaks were meant to be the end of what we see or read of a scene, then the next chapter kind of connects sometimes but generally starts off with a new scene. Or has this been one of the many mistakes I always make.

    OFP Not particularly a fan of T lady, I'm afraid, coming from a poor working class family in the valleys where wages are nothing to boast about, we used to call her 'Thatcher the Milk Snatcher'. As she made people have to pay for milk in infants ...

    Jenny, There are already shorts on youtube declaring him as the 'true' messenger of God. or even God incarnated. I don't deny I'm deeply troubled. People have said for many years, quoting words from prediction texts that the 3 previous presidents ...

    I suspect she knew exactly what she was doing but got frustrated and hoped the studio interviewer didn't understand. I'm getting the feeling that the trump admin team are fully presenting themselves as 'rulers' - now I know he is president and his ...

    wow, that's some story. Computer technology just keeps evolving and through the years you've been able to discover more and more. It's an amazing story so far and can see there's lots more to come to light. I can feel by the tone that the story has ...

    Are you perhaps one of those Whisks, who can plan it and begin it , then allow it all go to head in what ever direction it wants to go? never mind what you wrote to get it off the ground. Maybe you just need to look at it with different eyes and ...

    Oh, and the show 'Neighbours' did a famous poem about a teabag swirling around then put out to pasture - something rather more poetic than that but it was a very very long time ago. :)

    Wow, I love the comments on this blog as much as the subject itself. I agree with everyone else. Break a plot down to it's skeleton and there are thousands 'similar' not 'same'. Write your story - I was told once many years ago that 'no writing is ...

    Hi Nibs, no, I'm not feeding Woody dog food - not biscuits, anyway. He foraged that one all by himself - who knows where from?!

    Hi Nibs. Thanks for encouraging mail. I am so pleased that you are seeing more clearly! Wonky vision is really scary. Thank goodness for caring nurses.
    Have scan on Tuesday - start the gunk meds tonight! Good thing I wrote it on here or I would forget again!
    Healing vibes to you. TLC for yourself and I will give some to me.
    I went to a church concert last night - it would have been easier not to go but it was worth making the effort just to see/inhlae the blue in the magnificent stained glass window. I have been in that town for 25 years and never been into the church - I am used to a village parish church so was quite bowled over by the size of the window. The first part of the evening was not so good but the Goodall's Requiem was very moving.
