"I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it."
--Rev. Billy Graham, in a 1981 Parade magazine article

Charlee has some grey hair under her chin, noticed one at the start of the year, now she has around 7 or 8, but she is 5 which is around 36 in human years so she is middle aged now. Time seems to go quicker with a dog.

The video turned out good, but was a tear jerker.

I miss the old days of forums for fish, they were so busy and friendly, oh the good ole days.

Annual throw out day coming soon in our district, love this translation!

December 4-11 The period of time between the end of the period and the period of time for the completion of the slag covering the whole district. Residents of the property can be contacted for information on the demolition of the property and the exact time of completion of the slurry by sending a newsletter to their mailbox.Because people who do not produce slags at the designated time are committing a public pollution offense, residents may only prepare slags after 18:00 on the date specified in our official information letter to preserve the public order and cleanliness of Budapest.
So, do not put out your slags before 18:00!

There is a bloke in high vis next door, the development site, who has been holding a long wooden vertical stick with something attached to it for a good hour or more. He holds it , looks puzzled, wanders off and comes back again to hold his stick.
He's probably getting paid for that.

He'll be an expert. Any photos to assist in formal verification?

Something like that but not as posh.

I think it ended up with a stick being tied to our boundary and some spray paint on the ground which will now be gone due to a lot of diggering .

If you divide housing cost by square feet, it doesn't seem so bad, so from now on I will state, I pay $3.05 per sq foot.......

It might be colorful but don't get bit.

It's for site levels and site layout.It is a very useful bit of kit in the right hands you could call it a laser level ant sat nav.
