News guy just said tomorrow is 35c with humidex it will feel like 42c American style temps 94 f feels like 108f

Sorry Barb that you are uncomfortable, but it is so short lived can't you learn to love it. Think Feb. Exposed skin freezing in 60 seconds. 3 layers of clothes then a coat just to survive. Hurts to breathe.

......... Me and humidity will never be friends . But I definitely prefer it over winter weather.

I'm almost (not quite) rethinking my I'm loving it position.

I went for a bike ride this morning so naturally i needed to cool off. Gee, lets pick a suit that should be outlawed after the teenaged years

it sounded like a perfect idea at the time...take a rest on the air mattress while I float around.

Except for the falling asleep part...OUCH.. My pasty white skin looks like boiled lobster.

I look and feel like this guy..

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Wild strawberries---

Long ago I was heading to my folks house for fathers day---and I spotted some wild daisies--

My dad always liked daisies--so I stopped to pick some.

That was the day I discovered that wild daisies and wild strawberries grow side by side--

I picked strawberries until the knees of my jeans were red---dad got daisies and a bucket of straw berries that day---

Now, about this time of year I look for wild daisies so I can snack on strawberries---
Just love those sweet little things---Mike---

Mmmm, yummy! Wild strawberries are better than any other kind. We had some out in the field behind my mom & dad's house when I was growing up.

I've been buying regular strawberries from a local farm this week. Hopefully, next year I'll have some of my own (if the rabbits don't get through the fence to eat them).

Mike, do you think wild strawberry plants would survive if you transplant some of them?

Barb: I think they would be hardy enough. Like any plant, just not when they are flowering

I suppose that the wild ones would transplant well enough--the berries are so small-- I wonder if it would be worth the effort--boy they sure do taste good.

Hi! Kids!
I hope you've been good "boys and girls" while I've been away!!!
I've been replacing solid-core oak doors - not pre-hung....
What fun!!

I have to do some serious, computer maintenance -
I might "knock myself out of the box"!
If you don't hear anything from me for a while - OOPS!

The good news is -
Next week - I'm probably going to buy/build a new computer!!

So - I can get something with Win XP or Win 7
I'm leaning toward Win 7.
I know there's some of you who have "7" -
What do you think of it?!?

Where's some more recipes??!!

Rossi

I've got windows 7 ----seems to work fine--but I'm not to sophisticated --so My word shouldn't carry much weight.
