Point of order - What about fish or crustaceans?

How are they conversationally speaking? If their quiet and un demanding and a good shoulder to cry on keep them about good friends are hard to find.

It was yesterday but my street mumma cat allowed me to stroke her whilst she was eating her dinner and she's getting up and coming forward when I start opening the drawer where all the food is. It's very very exciting and makes me very happy. Also her babies make me smile every single day. I'd post a video but I have no idea how to do it if it's not on YT and I've never loaded a video to YT either so just imagine a hand gently stroking a very beautiful cat.

This was actually on Friday, but still pretty happy about it - elder son received his green card in the post, so we are now all card carrying aliens

People should pay attention to young people. They often have a clarity of vision that is free of the compromises of adulthood, and sees what is right.

Went up the Monchique mountain today and found that our favourite restaurant had escaped the terrible fires The owner had been surrounded at one time. Just him and a half dozen exhausted fire fighters from the North of Portugal. He had already battled for two days alone ,to save his business.They came on the third day and helped him put out a fire on the mountain slope opposite. In the end the fire surrounded his property ,coming within fifty feet .He saved his lovely dog, his feisty cat ,and his two cheeky parrots ,plus his family and restaurant. That made me smile
