    After all the rain and flooding it might be long gone. Interesting spot!

    It's all or nothing with this rain isn't it?
    Why can't it just fall regularly but in moderation and preferably at night.
    It's rained all night and day here so far but nothing too heavy.

    Nope, sorry - you'll not see pics of me on internet - unless on the Crimewatch website!
    I am very camera shy, and also can't do selfies on my ancient phone with a broken lens.
    Hair is nothing special just a layered style that needs minimum fuss.

    Good afternoon/morning CDRers.
    Hope you are all having a good Weekend Eve.
    The land is having a good soaking today which it needs.

    Lola has taken a step backwards today - and I don't mean he's been moonwalking like Michael Jackson.:)
    He stayed in his hide today until I got him up and then refused to come out of his shell even in his soak.
    He is wandering now but hasn't eaten anything yet .:(
    I hope he isn't having a relapse!
    Maybe it's something to do with the rain and sudden drop in temps.

    Waiting to hear from a friend about a trip to our Eisteddfod so I'll say TTFN and go and get organised.

    Not really - if it's a bad cut I will just put a bag over my head and still go.
    They'll think I'm a druid!:)

    It's not will power.
    I just forget to eat.
    Get focussed on something and don't notice the passing of the hours.
    If it were will power, i would fail. :rolleyes:

    Good afternoon, Linda! :)
    I had to look at the calendar to check it was Friday.
    It's very confusing, sometimes. :confused:

    Good afternoon, Lena! :)
    Morocco, of course is the chief supplier for the European market.
    Many people grin and suggest that's why I live here, especially when I tell them I've stayed with friends a couple of times in Ketama, the centre of the region responsible for cultivating the stuff.
    But it's not true, I never touch it, not for decades.
    Not due to an overwhelming sense of morality or upholding the law, I just really don't like it.

    Good afternoon, Lyn!
    Hope you get to the Eisteddfod.
    Have fun.:)
    Yes, Lola is probably just annoyed about the change in the weather. I find the torts here are very responsive to meteorological conditions.

    They also provided the wrong coordinates at first. Not surprising. You know, the entire hobby only depends on providing the correct coordinates. :facepalm:

    I didn’t know that about Morocco. Saw a lot of that stuff when I visited Bishkek over a year ago, even near my childhood home. Though people say it’s not effective because it’s not cultivated or something.

    Been writing the Moroccan history Blog
    And indeed, prehistory.
    I did know that the earliest known anatomically modern Humans were found in Morocco, dated at 315,000 years old - and they collected fossils!, but I didn't know that the oldest human adornments, jewellery beads made from seashells with holes drilled in, are also from Morocco and dated at 82,000 years ago.

    And I didn't know that the Vikings invaded Morocco.
    In 859 the Vikings landed 62 Longboats in Morocco, to deal with Moroccan raiders who'd been muscling in on their trade routes. They defeated the Moorish army, stayed 8 days, got bored and hot and went off to pillage Spain instead. :rolleyes:
