Still Alive (& well)

HI PEOPLE I'm still here. Haven't been online as no computer at home. My freak of nature tooth wasn't a tooth at all. It was a piece of toenail clipping or kettle scale (so to speak) erupting through the gum. It's now sitting on my TV set, waiting for the dentist to look at. I googled the matter and apparently you can get bits of bone working loose and coming through the gum. How weird is that.
I hope you're all okay. Sorry I can't hang around today. The internet gives me panic attacks. Well, kind of. Take care xx

Spring at last/My freak of nature tooth

I've got an extra tooth sticking out of my gum kind of NEXT TO the last tooth. I had an impacted widsom tooth in that corner but it was EXTRACTED. How can I possibly get 5 wisdom teeth? In fact I suspect I have ANOTHER unemerged tooth beside the one that's sticking out. It looks like a razor blade of white stuff sticking out of my gum. Nowhere near as red and horrible as the pictures I've googled up but they're surely "all time worst" teeth. (I hope.)

UGH! This is what mine looks like, but not as bad. Freaky, huh?

I'm going to the dentist just as soon as my paperwork is sorted out. I am pretty sure they need to let it emerge as much as it's going to before yanking it out, and it's only partially emerged. I really need an exray. Ugh. I HATE TEETH!

Dog found dumped in graveyard had "every bone broken"

AN ABANDONED DOG found in a Merseyside cemetery was found to have "nearly every bone in its body broken."

The 10 year old crossbreed, who was named "Elmo" by his rescuers was found covered in urine and faeces with multiple dislocated and broken bones. He was taken to a local RSPCA centre but had to be put down.

RSPCA inspectors said it was the worst case of animal cruelty they had ever seen.

  • Elmo found with a dislocated hip, shoulder, broken legs and paw fractures
  • RSPCA said every bone - all 319 - had previously been broken during life
  • Animal had to be put down and RSPCA now trying to trace cruel owners

Season's Greetings and Happy New Year 2016!


Are you like this too: every time you seem just about to have got around to mastering one thing then another (which cropped up ages ago, unnoticed) has gone so ridiculously neglected it's like the enchanted forest around Sleeping Beauty's Castle... Well my life is like that!

Anyway, have a happy new year as well XxXxXxX

J'adore cette chanson

AVE MARIA: this isn't the tune most people think of when you say Ave Maria but it's a beautiful tune nonetheless. (Music by Gounod Overlaid with Bach's Prelude in C Minor)

This is the "proper" Ave Maria. There are loads of versions and although this isn't the strongest version it's the best non-operatic Latin version I could find without spending all day at the computer...
I'm listening to it again. It is quite good. What an amazing tune!

No news is good news

I'VE BEEN so boring of late. Haven't done any scandalous thing. Have been giving clean tests at the druggyclinic. Wow. The "cleaner" I am the more my mood cycles round and round but I don't care really. I have been concentrating on my writing. I need to learn to draw now ~ to produce lovely illustrations for my stories. Right I've got to go. No internet at my house so I'm very stretched for time here at the internet caff. All the best to everyone ;-)

Rare Duck! Near Where I Live ~ Shock Horror!

I SPOTTED THREE GADWALLS the other day. They are "quite uncommon" according to the bird book. They look like ordinary brown (female) mallard ducks, except they're smaller, have yellow bills, and dive a lot. That's how I first spotted them, by the diving.
This is what they look like. The nearer one is the male. I saw three females but they got really nervous with me crashing along the river bank and hiding near a wasps' nest. So they all took off and pinged away.

Today I saw a male and a female. They do look just like in the picture. Wow. I can't believe that I, of all people, actually saw a rare piece of wildlife ~ WOW!
This is a female. Notice she is more duck-shaped than a duck! (Ie a mallard.)
This is a female mallard. Notice the bright blue speculum (that's the coloured band on her wing).

I'm being really respectable these days. Have been writing a LOT. I might have to start up another blog ~ a "writer's blog".
Take care everyone :-)
