Hi girls nice to see you all  :-**

We went on our monthly trip to Niagara Falls yesterday, the show was "Spirit of the Dance" mostly Irish dancing that was excellent. We had the Celtic Ladies ( singers ) and 4 opera singers who sang well known opera songs, so all in all it was very enjoyable.

Lillian,  enjoy your show with  Diana Ross, I always liked her, I wonder will she still have the Big Hair  :) I sent Liz a PM awhile ago but haven't had a reply yet, I think she checks in now and again but doesn't post.

Jean,  I'm sorry to hear about your brother, I hope things will improve soon, I know how you feel :-*

Bernie & Sarah I hope you all have a great weekend, Breda Happy Belated Anniversary  :-**

Hi everyone, not sure how long I can stay but just wanted to say a big thank you to all my friends who cared to ask about me and the ones who sent me PMs.  this may sound strange to you but it's all because of a chair.  my last one went down with me on it and  although I was not hurt I've been afraid to sit on a chair at the computer again.  this was the second time I've gone down, just like the Titanic :D  so you can understand how I felt.  anyway we've been looking for a chair all this time.  I've been sitting on the edge of a chair while holding on to the desk so I could use one hand but could not type.  I could open all the mail and have been enjoying reading them and keeping up with all the biss.  I'm so sorry for making you all worry.  right now I'm on a chair that Roisin brought over from  her  house , it's a computer chair and it's a big and tall and can hold a lot of weight which makes me feel safe.  we've been all over the place, even the states looking for a chair to suit me and this one is about the best so far.   I had certain things I needed from a chair which is why it's been taking so long.  I really missed you guys and so much has been going on  with you all, some good and some sad for which I'm so sorry, I might just have to stay with this chair as any other one  seems to be the same.  you would not believe how much I would pay just to get a chair and get on my computer again.  I never thought in my wildest dreams I would pay that amount for a chair :o , anyway this one was not getting used except the girls played on it , swinging round on it :D  they will miss that.   the only thing is, each time I go on it , it never is in the same place so I've been working to see how to work with it, I place the chair then sit down and it moves so that decides  if I can type or not.   I know how this all sounds so lets hope from now on I can say, I'M BACK. :D   once again thank you all for your concerns.  I thought you might like to hear this.  I had a few overseas PMs and my sister , who lives in Belfast , tried sending emails for me to them but they would not go.  I thought it was funny and reminded me of  the times some of my family who were not talking to each other, would phone me to find out how they were doing, imagine phoning me in Canada to find out how someone was who lived a bus ride away  :D .  anyway I'm trying to get this all in now as the next time I sit down I might not be in the same position to type.  oh lord  that should be my biggest worry.  anyway guys I need to go.. I hope you all have a great day and god bless.  love Liz  *

Ruby, your trip and the show at Niagara Falls sound brilliant.   :-*

McNamee, I have 5 grandies as well.  The two in Perth are blonde and blue-eyed and the three here in Melb are dark-haired and brown-eyed.   :-*

Liz, it's so good to see you on. You've been missed.  I can understand you being nervous about trusting a chair again after two falls.  Take care.  :-*

Hope everybody else is well.  :-*

All great here.

I had heard Diana Ross is a bit of a Diva.....Who does she think she is.... :D

I remember her reaction to being frisked at some Airport, think it may have been London. :)

Well Ladies, all I can say is Miss Ross was no Diva, and take it from me I have come across a few. lol. She was great and the dresses WOW. Sang all the songs, no stuff you would not know. But the last song she sang was not her own, it was Gloria Ganyors, I Will Survive. The place was hopping. She was only gone from the stage for about 2 minutes between her costume changes, Not Bad for an old broad.  ;) And was interacting with the people and telling people to sing along and dance. So I don't need to be told that twice, So I had no voice the next morning, the feet OK and I only lost $20 in the Casino. All in all a good night out.

Hi guys, was just having a problem with a prescription being renewed, my own dr is away for a wk and because it's a narcotic they won't renew without a new presc.  the last time my dr. gave me a yr's worth, but having only one month left I should have did it last month. anyway long and short the dr's office  renewed it for a wk and then it has to be renewed again.. anyway thank god that's taken care of.   this morning it was dull and then the sun came out but it's dull again..i hope anyone going out or having a BBQ will have a good time and no rain.   I was talking to my sister early on and she had just come back from Black Pool, she said it was lovely, they go every yr. but she took this pain in her knee and could not even put her foot down or walk so TG she could go to the dr's  they said it was arthritis so when she came home she went to  her own dr and he gave her pills for it and she has been able to walk some but I hope I can say this without anyone taking offence, it was so good that she was somewhere she did not have to pay out a fortune to see a dr.  Has anyone been watching a new show that's on called  Missing, your man Nesbit is in it, I saw the first one and was not impressed but I want to give it a chance.  anyway time to move...love to all...Liz :-*

Okay folks here's some recipes from the Kindergarten Cookbook ( For the adventurous cooks )that came home today, the kids told the teacher what they liked to eat and how to make it and she wrote it down word for word. This teacher is a gem :-*  just a few of the recipes...I won't use their names, these are 5 and 6 year olds.
   Rice Krispie Squares:
   
   1500 Rice Krispies
    50 marshmallows
    1cup of butter
    15 drops of milk

Mix the Rice Krispies, marshmallows, milk and butter in a pan and put it in the oven. Bake at 5000 degrees for 50 minutes. You will know when it's done when it beeps. Take it out of the oven. Serve on a tray and eat it with apple juice!!

   Vanillla Cake:

   1 package of flour
    3 eggs
   2 icings
   5 spoons of vanilla
   1 jug of milk
    2 spoons of butter
   1 cupful of sugar

Mix the flour and all the other stuff in a bowl with a mixer. Put it on a cookie sheet but for cakes. Put it in the oven. The oven should be 40 degrees. Bake the cake for 10 minutes. If you open the oven and it looks good --- take it out and put candles on it and sing Happy Birthday to someone. Serve it with a knife so you can cut it up for everyone.

   Eggs.

   3 eggs
    A bit of butter (a teaspoon)
   A little salt (a teaspoon)

Crack open the eggs into the frying pan, put butter and salt on top. Turn the stove on to 7. Cook the eggs for 3 minutes. Do not flip them. You will know when they are done when your Mum says so. Eat them with toast..maybe.

 Velvet Cupcakes.

  1 bag of red stuff (it might be velvet)
  1 cup of flour
  2 cups of milk
  Maybe some sugar
  1 or 2 eggs.

Mix up the stuff and put then in a little cupcake pan. Put them in the oven for 60 minutes at 1 degree. It usually dings when it's done. You could also use purple velvet if you can't find any red.
   
And the last one.

 Chicken with bones.

  20 pounds of chicken
  1 yellow cup of syrup

 Buy a chicken at the store. Cut it into pieces and then you go wash your hands. Put the pieces on a pan to put in the oven. Pour the syrup over top. Cook at 100 degrees fo 29 minutes. You'll know it is ready when it looks cooked. Take it out, put it on a plate and then you eat it with a fork and knife and mashed potatoes and broccoli.

The egg and chicken recipes are my two grandsons.  :D   Btw each book comes with a warning:
            Don't Try These At Home!!

Hi guys, remember what I said about the way I sit down well i'm sitting sideways and trying to type :D  .  CG, DMW and Jean, thanks for the welcome back.. those recipes were precious and can only be told by little ones.   can you belive it's almost the end of  July.  well remember my prescriptions,  I get mine delivered, the guy came round this afternoon with them and  the one I was having trouble with, was with them so that's me till next wk.  my high till next month, only joking guys. :D  it was raining early on.   my sister's daughter and her family are just back from the states , they were there for near 2wks.  they  rented a car and travelled round but they stayed for 5days I forget where but they said it was very tiring and would not do it again.  I remember just going to   Spain was a big thing and now people travel half way across the world just for a stag wk end.   ::)  things have really changed.  well I hope you have  a good night's rest and a good day tomorrow.  no rain.  before I go, last Thursday  my cleaning lady came, she's a really nice person, she said she got up really early to go water her friend's flowers, the friend is on holiday,  and while she was here it was like a monsoon  she was mad she watered the flowers, if she had waited the rain could have done that for her  :D  good night and god  bless. Liz :-*
