Come one, come all, share your daily thoughts, conversational chit-chat, maybe a joke or two and all the little things that really don't need its own thread.

There are plenty of seats available, so don't be shy and come chat!

Happy chatting! summer

My daily thoughts for the last couple of weeks would have been totally unprintable because it has been ridiculously hot and hasn't rained - and so I've had to keep going out to water both my front and back gardens all the time.
And heat has a very bad effect on my health mad

I'm definitely not as tough as some of you USA-ers, eh ?? lol

I won't send you any hugs Mad since that would make you hotter but here's some flowers that don't need watering. flowers

Mad, I can't do with the hot weather either. It's been very warm here though I don't think our temps have been as high as yours. It's the humidity that gets to me, I feel I'm melting away to a wee greasy spot! lol
Ana, I hope you have fully recovered now.

Mad, I hate the heat too. I just don't do well in it.

We are having a heat spell here but with an occasional shower... which is not helping our farmer trying to get his second cut of hay cut and bailed... which is what we are waiting for.

Had to start watering the tomatoes yesterday. The optimum for them is at least 1" of rain per week. I was weeding and it was SO dry. Hard to believe just 10 days ago it did nothing but rain every day!

Heading in town to get groceries today. Very hot again.

According to our weather forecast, we will be starting our "excessive heat warning" days on Wednesday. I also hate the heat. It makes me so tired that I don't feel like doing anything.

We aren't having any heat yet because the San Francisco Bay cools us off nicely, but we didn't get 1/2 the rain we should have over the winter on this entire coast. There is talk of water reductions, as the reservoirs did not fill with snow melt-water. Been through it before. Not water rationing, but voluntary cutbacks by homeowners and businesses. The parks will be allowed to dry up. It is sad to know there will be no gardening this year.

We're having a beautiful day here, but the wind is coming up this afternoon so it's a no-go for boating again. Still, it's lovely out there, so I'll pot up some plants I bought the other day.

Where you are sounds like when Rosaboobie was living on Sanday in the Orkney Islands! The wind there was constant and gale force most of the time!

Drac, I did not know that Rosaboobie had left the Orkney Islands. Where did she move to?

She's been living in a small community called Rogart in Northern Scotland for a couple of years now. She found a gorgeous home in the Scottish countryside!

My guy had a really good day today so we were able to get out for a bite to eat at the big resort down the street -- their pub is huge and can easily accommodate the spacing requirements, so we were pretty confident it would be okay. Afterwards we drove south down the coastal highway for a while until he started to feel uncomfortable. It was just nice to get out for a while.

Yes, our wind is persistent here. It's partly because we're in a very narrow stretch between Vancouver Island and the Mainland, so the wind just howls through here.

And of course, so does the water, since the channel is so narrow and all that water goes through there twice a day as the tides go in and out. At the narrowest point, just before the channel turns north, the water whips through so fast it creates 20-foot whirlpools and water at different depths going in different directions. They aren't super deep, so if you're careful AND confident you can just blast around them (which we do). But it's not for the faint of heart because if you panic and hesitate, your boat can start spinning around.

And it used to be much worse through that narrow point because there was a massive rock -- really an underwater mountain -- in the channel, called Ripple Rock because it was just under the surface and created only a ripple so you couldn't see it. Many ships smashed into it, even into the 20th century, so in the 1950's it was blown up by tunneling underneath it and placing dynamite. It was thought to be the largest non-nuclear detonation on earth at the time, and still ranks up there.

Wow, hagatha! I had no idea you lived in such an interesting place! Adventures abound and glad your hubby had a good day and you could get out for awhile.

I've actually driven the boat though that water a few times myself and the first time it was truly scared You have to push forward, because you can't turn around in it.

There's another very narrow spot called Surge Narrows, where the water is about ten feet higher at one end. Again, very narrow, You literally ride down the shute to water that is lower. But throughout the islands, the water can get pretty darned scary. There are no boat rentals around here for that reason. People kept getting into trouble. But the fast water brings all sorts of goodies into the area for the salmon and the whales. We have giant octopuses here, too, and there is a big diving industry.

It's a great outdoorsy are. The town itself is deadly dull, but we have Courtenay and Comox nearby, with some sophistication and good places to eat, so it's al good. My husband loves it here, so it's been worth it.
