Re: What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading "I know a Secret" by Tess Gerritsen Before that, I read "Murder for Christmas" by Francis Duncan, an author I didn't know so far. The book was a christmas present, and I liked it. It's very Agatha-Christie-Style (the author and Mrs Christie are contemporary)...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

My colleagues are on sick leave one after another. :D I just hope I'll be spared the flu this year.

Not much to do currently, so I'm a little bored at work. :D

I treated myself with Sherlock, Season 4, and a new book, but I have yet to watch Sherlock.

Re: Pets...

I remember Jessie and Lea getting like that. Timmy's about 8 years now (we don't know his exact age, but the vet agreed with our estimation), and he's still full of energy, and playful. Right now, he doesn't like to go out that much, due to the weather, so he lets off steam indoors :lol: We've taken...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

I think we're on about the same latitude, Paddy. We've had some very blustery days here, with horizontal precipitation, ice sandwiches (a layer of snow, a layer of ice, a layer of snow), and wind chills below 0. The high today is -5 C by 5 PM, which is warmer than we've been for quite a while. That...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Who would have thought real life might outshine House of Cards? Bad weather over here. America may face its coldest winter of all times (according to a certain President-impostor), but we're facing hurricanes over here right now. Bad blizzard yesterday, bad hurricane today (literally). The train and...

Re: Sad and shocking news

I'm still in shock. Such a special person, and such a special voice. Still no cause of death has been named. Apparently, she was dealing with mental health problems (bipolar), like so many people. I'm not speculating whether she has committed suicide - it's tragic either way. https://www.youtube.com...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Seriously? That was a beautiful belated Christmas Present! I had a very nice belated present as well! Our boss granted all of us a one-off extra payment. And even though 50% goes off (taxes), the payment was large enough to keep my balance in credit. None of us expected this to happen (hehe, his son...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

t's not simply a matter of voting him out of office - he needs to leave before something happens that none of us will recover from. And I mean the whole world, a nuclear nightmare. We have nothing to stop him, legally, from pressing the button. I know it sounds crazy, but tackling him or disobeying...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Here we are, 2018! I needed some rest. It wasn't just that I still can't bend my knee (at least I don't need to use the crutches all of the time anymore, but I'm still wearing the bandage) - I felt so exhausted, I couldn't bring myself to switch on the computer. For the first time, mom and I did rea...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Leg still hurts, I'm still using the crutches. It's getting better, but as soon as I put off the bandage (or the splint, I wear it in the evenings) , it cuts like a knife through the knee. Back at work, nonetheless. I have a makeshift leg-rest to put up my leg (made out of a cardboard box, and a cus...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Yes, night driving (especially night and rain and during wintertime) is a nightmare. I hope it's better with the new ones. Takes a couple of days until my eyes have fully adjusted to the new ones.
