    A thread on String Theory would be perfect.

    And Knots - they're good, too.

    I would find it hard to keep up with a thread about knots though.

    Silly string came in a pressurised can so it could be squirted out in a long stream. I once saw it being used to check for trip wires on a military combat competition.

    My hubby was investigated for TIA, they said it was optical migraines. He says that people's faces go all weird like in a horror movie - scary stuff.

    Yes I remember now, that silly string. Someone sprayed our cat with it, many moons ago.
    I have never seen it now for years.

    We have a friend visiting for a few days. I have just been forced to visit the local shops to buy some beer as we didn't have anything he likes.

    All this talk of wind and rain, carrots, silly string and beer - sounds a lot like a summer barbecue!

    A mild breeze here but still very mild and more importantly dry.
    typical Lincolnshire, really - though not of the past few years which have been wet.
    In fact the only difference in seasons over the last few years has been how warm (or indeed cold) the rain was.

    Are we seeing a return to normality?

    In the weather of course, not on these forums.

    I have just been told by my hubby, that we are going to have a tropical summer.
    I think the word should be typical, but I will live in hope.
    You just never know how the posts will go here.
    Silly string, cars, often food.
    But no cherries as yet.
    Have a lovely evening.

    Well it's raining by here today. I was supposed to have bought some beer and lemming juice yesterday whilst out, but only came back with beer.
    At least I got my priorities right.

    I shall have to brave the elephants if I want some juice for my lunchtime fish.

    No rain here, but VERY windy!

    Hubby said he has a doctor's appointment at 2.30. I said are you sure it's not the dentist

    Here is a lemon for you Fruity

    I can order elephants if you want.

    I nipped out between heavy showers and bought the juice of a freshly squeezes lemming, and bought a couple of books in the local Hospice charity shops.

    As far as elephants go, you probably know that there are four.
