    Yes it is a real problem. Heart problems etc.etc.etc.but I've been able to eat more because it tastes good. And I do know this! I'm going to look like an old fat hen with chicken legs. Ask me if I care.

    Oh me oh my...but it sounds like you're shopping till you drop for your family. And carrying all of it in is all day weight lifting.

    Don't tell my wife that. She put the tree up last night. I don't know if it's tradition in the Philippines or just a family thing. But my wife's family members start decorating when the months start to end ber. I have her scaled back to Nov.

    Good morning everyone, don't know if I will see Opo today. It is raining and 65° this morning. High of 75° if the sun doesn't come out. I don't know if Opo will.
    Hope everyone has a good weekend.

    Very frosty and cold here this morning, but nice and sunny. It should warm up quickly with the full sun. Hoping we see 50F by the afternoon.

    The weather map for the eastern U.S. was pretty scary-looking last night. I'm sure glad I don't live on that side of the U.S.

    That's funny. I like my little tree all year long though. Joe buys me a little addition for it every once in awhile.

    Most people visit Florida in the winter because the weather is supposedly so great. I personally, like the summer better then even here in Ohio. And those overcast days in the winter are really gloomy because they're so unusual in Florida.

    Lola didn't surface at all yesterday and only came out today because I dragged him out for a warm soak.
    I think he has noticed the colder weather and light levels .
    He ate really well today though so I am not concerned about him.

    Good evening/afternoon all.
    Glad to see everyone is OK and that the forum is back to normal again.
    All is good with me but had a busy week in work and picked up the sniffles from one of my little darlings, I don't think it will last too long though.
    I went out with friends to see a band last night and lost my mobile phone - it must have dropped out of my coat pocket when I got into my friend's car. Miraculously it was handed in at local pub so got it back a few hours later.
    I say 'miraculously' but the good thing about having a cr*p phone is that no one else wants it!!!
    Today I've been busy putting Lola's new hide together and lining it with another layer of insulation. I may saw the little legs off it and replace with lockable castors for ease of moving, then I just have to figure out the best type of heating for it and find a plastic tray for the floor and substrate. It won't be long before Lola is toasty in it and I can save some money on my gas bills.
    Hope everyone is having a good Saturday.

    Me too - Xmas eve is soon enough and it's down again on or after 12th night (I can never remember which I'm supposed to do)
