  1. Healthy Eating

    I live by the rule - to eat as healthy as I can afford. My other rule is - if it comes in a tin or a packet then man has no doubt played with it and it is probably not very healthy for you.
  2. Storm Ophelia

    Very unusual weather today compliments of Ophelia. At 9.30am it went very dark and stayed that way for about an hour. It felt very surreal. By the afternoon we had beautiful sunshine. Fortunately very little rain here and not too much wind. Hope our brothers in Ireland are okay.
  3. What an illuminating post - giving an insight into how differently we all live.
  4. Black Hole

    Just makes you realise how insignificant man is in comparison to Jehovah's creation.
  5. This young sister's faith is an inspiration and I feel humbled in reading her experience. Thoughts are with her family.
  6. What a terrible tragedy. My thoughts are with her family.
  7. Yes, this works for me as well. The other thing I find helps me is to link the name to a funny picture in my head e.g. the name Shelly - I would picture a beach full of glowing shells. Often it is easier to bring a picture to mind than to try and think of a word.
  8. So difficult for our poor brothers and sisters. They have been subject to persecution for many years. Sometimes I think we take our precious freedom for granted and don't appreciate it.
  9. Sip or Slurp?

    Unfortunately, I am not Chinese.
  10. Sip or Slurp?

    In our house, mealtimes were a time to chat and voice our opinions - there was always quite a lot of noise then. However, my parents considered it good table manners not to be noisy when you ate your food - hence no slurping.
  11. Sip or Slurp?

    Must admit to being a sipper. As children we were never allowed to make any noises when it came to our food. I guess the habit has just stuck.
  12. The peace and tranquility broken only by birdsong. Watching older ones grow back to vital young people. Knowing I made it along with all those I love. The thrill of hearing what the new scrolls will contain. Jumping out of bed and actually being thrilled to start a new day. These thoughts keep you going.
  13. Travel by Train

    I agree that train travel is about the best form of transport when you are on holiday. It is all of the things mentioned above. I travel to work every day by train and even though it is not as relaxing as when on holiday, it is a great way to see the lovely countryside where I live and gird up your loins mentally for the day ahead.
  14. We are faced with many hard questions on a daily basis. I found Abrahams example encouraging.
  15. A little bit like the Mona Lisa in that it is quite enigmatic.
