    Don't feel silly Zurie. Sometimes threads 'hang' and we simply don't know what's going on in the background on Zaar. But I am pleased to say I have found this new thread edition. Yay!!!!!!! And now I am back to a decent net connection, so I can start posting in the adventure thread again. Life's good.

    Oh Legs!!!

    I am so sorry about your lost posts. I'm behind you ALL the way, and I posted in your Africa thread about what happened.

    (Once I was writing a sorta light chick-lit romance novel because a local publisher asked me for something like that. I confess that at the time I was completely computer illiterate. Not like you. I was just sooo stupid about a computer. My story was right at its suspenseful end .... when I wiped it. Don't ask. I'm not going there again. No, there was no back-up. I didn't know what the word meant. I'm only telling this to say I know what it means to lose a lot of text .... icon_twisted.gif The novel was lost, and I was not prepared to try and rewrite it again. icon_evil.gif )

    ok. I am back... sorry I have had so much to do, the back is just about fixed, am still just being careful not to go life things like heavy pot plants.

    Madeleine, sorry about problems with your son.... they are always such a worry - my grand daughter (15) is running wild and she knows what she can get away with law wise, its awful.

    Also I think your bread machine is new pack it up and take it back there is something wrong. that sounds dreadful to say the least

    I will go and try vicks tonight. I know that it also takes the pain away from insect bites as well. wish they did a shower gel of vicks then


    my thumbs are turning in toward my palms - kind of folding under, if you know what I mean, but anything is worth a try I will do that this evening after I have done all the usual.

    Zurie those photos of the children are just a delight and you look great.... looking at them I do wonder where all the years go, I remember when your Grandson was born!!!

    Hi Chef Africa - good to see you back. by the way

    regards this volcano thats such a worry in iceland, I was looking through the kitchen window its a long large one, and it just didnt look right so I get the window cleaner and clean the outside and all the kitchen towel has got like a lemon/lime green colour all over it - really badly, its just got to be something from the volcano.

    o.k. I have to get a move on, I took my cousin into hospital for an angiogram - its his wife Marilyn that had been treated for cancer.... she moaned and groaned so much about having to wait. and kept on it was embarrassing, as others could hear her. so eventually I aid, that I had not counted all the hours I waited in hospitals for her - she shows no compassion at all. I had to lug Johns overnight bag back to the car (which he had to take in - in case) as he was not allowed to carry it, her excuse was her knee was hurting - o.k. vent over! but i am feeling 98% now. so I might be able to go with Simon for a planned weekend to France after all YAY

    Peggy, its just great to have you back on air again - you really are taking people on a wonderful tour of where you went and they re enjoying it so much - thats obvious icon_biggrin.gif

    It's great to hear everyone's news and see photos. I'm still in Africa withdrawal. It's not severe, but ever present.

    Joy, especially good news about your improvement. And Zurie, thanks so much for feeling my pain yesterday.

    Peggy, I'm glad I don't have to write long posts right now.

    The *&^% 3G modem on my laptop keeps disconnecting. I so miss broadband (we don't even have a landline in this cottage in Stellenbosch).

    I've hardly signed in here, and the dreaded "ping!!!" comes, alerting me that I'm disconnected. icon_evil.gif

    I hate this signing-in and the time it takes.

    I also hate it that I, as a paid-up member, have to sign in, while every Tom, Dick and Harry can open Zaar and "steal" all the recipes they want without having to register or sign in.

    Morning all,

    Joy - the ash! What a nuicance it is becoming. Sister is watching nervously in Africa because her flight to us is via Schippol and right now that's one of the no-fly zones. The news coming to us here is that in 1821 - the last time this volcano erupted - the eruption lasted 2 years! That would certainly put airlines out of business and would wreak havoc with the world's endless quest for making money...

    But I doubt that the slower, more romantic pace of sailing on ocean liners will come back. I sometimes think that the world has rushed itself off its own feet and I wish that a quieter more steady pace would just come back. That's the one thing that I can truly admire about the Amish people. They got into a natural rhythm and chose to stay there.

    Zuri, I know about those damned pings all too well! We chat via Skype daily so that the children can see their oupa and ouma and just as they are getting into the swing of it, off goes the video. Tedious, to say the least.

    Miss Leggy, I must be the only one on earth who has not read your thread. icon_eek.gif icon_redface.gif Sorry. I will find time to read from the beginning soon, I promise.

    (I shut down the laptop for a while. I hope maybe the damn connection will last a little longer now).

    I've seen the most horrific photos of that "jokull". As far as I remember from my German III at university, "jokull" is Norwegian/Icelandic for "volcano".

    My imagination runs riot!! We did the Norse mythology in German too, and there was this wonderful poem about the Gotterdammerung (sorry, I don't know how to put the little thingies on the o and the a on this laptop!!)

    The poem forecast the "end of the gods and the end of the world", and started out something like ... "when the sun and the moon disappear" ... (the ash cloud!!) then the Last Bugle (or something) will be sounded by the Watchman of the Gods, Heimdall. And the last days of the gods and the humans will dawn ...

    Okay, okay, I'm not taking Norse mythology and an old German poem seriously!!

    But I must try and get some of those photos on here. Seriously scary, at least for the people who live so close to the volcano!! icon_eek.gif

    icon_twisted.gif Little family gossip: my oh-so-perfect sister-in-law from America is still here in SA, and due to fly back to NY on Saturday.

    But there are no direct flights to America (not since the days of Pan-Am) and she needs to fly via Heathrow ...

    Well, she's up in the Limpopo province with brother-in-law and new wife, and I hope they last for the duration .... icon_cool.gif

    I received many photos, but here is no 1:

    Eyjafjallajokull 2:

    Here the scariest for me were the tiny homesteads and farms, against that background of snowy mountains ... and then the volcanic cloud, like a huge nuclear bomb:

    Amazing photos, Zurie. Thanks. But sorry your computer connection is driving you crazy.

    Madeleine, drop in when you have time. I like your idea about slower moving times.

    Joy, hope every day brings more improvement.

    Hey, great!! Last I heard your airports were still closed.

    At least sis-in-law will be able to fly home on Saturday! icon_wink.gif I'm never comfortable with her in the same country as me. rotfl.gif
