Good morning/afternoon all - another bright and sunny day but very, very icy!!
Hopefully it will stay dry all day.
There is a possibility of snow here tomorrow - I hope it misses us.
Have a good Saturday.

Hi Heather!
I like the snow but can do without the ice.. I don’t like having to drive in it at all... when it snowed a few weeks ago, I was unprepared and could not find my insulated clothes. I think someone borrowed them on our camping trip and failed to return them.. I’ve just got in a new set (which I needed anyway) so I’m ready for at least one more snowball fight.. lol

When I had my knee done recently the doc drew 2 big arrows - one pointing up to my knee and the other pointing down to it. It made me smile that maybe they needed to make sure they knew exactly where the knee was as well as which knee to do.


Yep, part of what is involved in “surgery prep” aka “surgical skin marking” helps ensure the surgeons & team operate on the correct part of the body. There are specially designed pens out there for this one purpose. I’m sure everyone has heard horror stories about incorrect things being chopped or removed...

➡️➡️ Purple Surgical Skin Marker Pens allow for the precise marking on skin prior to and during surgery.

I thought there was something with wrong with a link I tried the other day, but just tried the link for Alecks tort name and same happened again. Anyone else having this trouble?

I thought it was, but just seemed a bit OTT at the time:)

I’m feeling a bit better this afternoon. There’s widespread snow across the UK, but we missed out and got chilly sunshine instead.

We went out for a welly walk at the country park on the outskirts of town. (UK Wellies = wellington boots = US gumboots)

The area is upriver from the flood barrier, a long dam that protects our town from the worst of the flooding, and it gets very muddy indeed at this time of year.

Still it was good for all 3 of is to be out in the fresh air. This photo was taken over the main lake as we finished our walk.

Your probably right. They schedule so many operations on a certain day that they probably need a reminder.

It happens to me too - on all of Josh's forum, bearded dragon, gecko, tarantula, etc.

Looks like we will be getting some heavy snow tomorrow from 5 am but easing off by 10 in morning. Trouble is the temps won't be more than 1C so it will hang about.:(
Brrrrrrr!!!
