We have considering getting rid of the tree but it is so big and does look nice...also nice privacy from the next door neighbor...so it is a bit frustrating...

It is so nice and sunny out there right now...would love to have the sheets in the sun
Have you ever considered calling a bee keeper? They would love to have the bees. They smoke them and can remove them while they are sleeping from the smoke. It doesn't harm them. And he gets the honey. If he is a nice bee keeper, he will share the honey with you.

Actually, I couldn't even get him to go. He needs another wake up call...

It is going to be another wonderful day...sunny, warm, just perfect!

We are going to fertilise the whole garden front and back today...big job! Also a bit of a tidy up, some pruning etc, to nice a day to be stuck inside

We will also go for a nice walk later this afternoon

A sore throat just came on me all of the sudden today. By the end of today I have pretty much lost my voice. Caaled the dr. to get a script right away. Sure hope I don't have to delay surgery because of this. Training new help today took alot of extra talking. Greasing up with vicks tonight & got some biaxin from the doc, lots of fluids too.

I find that 25,000 to 50,000/day IU of Vitamin A works really well for sore throat. Don't take them for more than 10 days - 2 weeks, really. I think it works because Vitamin A has to do with skin and mucous membranes.

We have been out in the garden and done all the fertilising...takes ages but that is what you get with a big garden

It is actually warming up out there, going to be 29c today...Summer is back for a few days by the looks of things
