    Are they called Kiwi fruit or Chinese gooseberries down your way? I had Cill’ s contribution to the header laying some before wondering if it would work for him.

    I’ll jump in on Ezzy’s browser if I may. I’m Roy, Cill’s dad. They are “Kiwi Fruit” down this way, Spawny. We snitched them from China a generation or so ago and made them ours. In China itself they are called Kiwi Fruit, most of them imported from New Zealand.

    Compliments of the season, Spawny and Tarn. I understand this time of year is a Wiccan celebration, Tarn. How interesting that sounds. Sometimes I wonder if my wife is a witch. She certainly has me under her spell.

    Seasons greetings as well to Fuzzie and Yoda and Farm Boy. No doubt I’ll be back here before long to bore you all, don’t worry!

    Thks for the burritos! Mum and the aunts are flat out preparing the feast which they love doing here as everything is straight out of the sea and the garden and the forest. Today we will eat until we are content and relaxed and full. My cuzzie Jim will bring out his guitar and play blues he makes up as he goes. Jim gets manic and he’s brilliant. He also gets depressed and he won’t notice people when they try to get through to him. Jim is funny and brilliant today and everyone wants to be close to enjoy Jim.

    No. Tom is a mate of Jim’s. They were both in a home for disturbed young men. Tom has made it good. Jim still has his demons. Some time ago I mentioned a couple of Dad’s brothers had bad divorces and both of them are now dead. Jim is the son of one of them. He always had Asperger syndrome but was doing fine until that divorce and his father’s death just seemed to finish him off.

    Molly was back to pestering me again yesterday. There’s a place around the cliff where you can take an 80 feet dive at full tide. She has seen me do it and I won’t let her do it. She’s like a bloody bulldog and won’t let it go. I know what’ll happen, if I give her an inch she’ll take a mile. Let her do it once and she’ll be at it all day and sooner or later she’s going to get the timing wrong and break her neck.

    I’ve made a recording of my voice saying “no… no… no…” that I’m going to play whenever she’s around.

    That Molly is the biggest enthusiast you’d ever meet. Every activity is a thing of wonder to be embraced with joyous delight. “Boots and all” is our Molly. She put a fart cushion under her great grandmother’s seat and almost laughed herself unconscious. We all ended up laughing at her laughter until Dad choked out “okay that’s enough”, otherwise we would’ve laughed all night.

    I hate cameras. It’s an irrational phobia. As far as I know there are no photos of me except for one that I agreed to (but I only agreed reluctantly which is why I look a bit pissed off). As you may have guessed, the little guy in the photo is one of my favorite people.

    Very few people know about my place here. There are 2 groups of visitors. One is my family. The other is a very close, discreet group. None of them take photos of my place. If it became known that this place is inhabitated and there are facilities here, I’d soon be over-run by the great unwashed.

    It’s all right to tell old jokes. To some, who haven’t heard them before, they’s be new.
    When I heard the most common method to line dry a teddy bear is to pin him up by his ears, it hurt to just think about it.

    Just fished a comment by Bloom out of the Spam Filter, think it’s worth a look.

    Bloom’s asking for insight on a psycho-ex-girlfriend problem

    Bloom, I dunno if u’ll see this comment, but I don’t think she sounds dangerous (from what u’ve said so far), she sounds like a sore loser, annoyed that her ex-bf has found true love while she hasn’t. And very immature.

    Personally how I might react is (assuming u 2 haven’t been introduced yet), if she were skulking behind me in the shadows, I’d turn to her with a smile and say “Hi, I’m X. It’s nice to meet you”. Be calm, friendly and don’t let her see that her behavior is bothering you. The more pple who are around, the better. She has the choice between being friendly and civil in return, or being impolite and unfriendly and then appearing like an unreasonable b-tch in front of her other acquaintances.

    Alana, I agree with your advice for Bloom. She’s a real battler who deserves a good life.

    Spawny the chameleon, I do hope you stick to that avatar, mate. We can then all see the truth re the movie star good looks myth. Windsor’s pensive look is in keeping with your character, too. (snort, choke)

    The only improvement I can think of is you slip a Ned Kelly tin hat over his head at some stage.

    Call it a vanity check, if you will. I’d recommend $0.02c USD for each appearance of the avatar. If Hilary becomes next US President, I’d recommend shifting the currency to Renminbi.

    Btw I was just reading some of the earlier comments–I share your dislike of cameras! Haha. I take photos mainly only while on holiday, visiting a new place etc. I like photo-taking on the right occasion, but cameras are getting a bit annoying because so many pple overuse them, taking photos 20 times a day, of every meal, at every angle. Grr. Not to mention the excessive selfie-taking. >.<

    β€œsusurration” – it’s an onomatopoeia (Tuesday’s word – The formation or use of words such as buzz or murmur that imitate the sounds associated with the objects or actions they refer to)

    A soft, whispering or rustling sound; a murmur.. A quiet whispering sound, like gentle waves on a sandy beach

    As you might have gathered, Molly is slightly dyslexic. More than slightly. She’s got a stellar IQ but words are not her strong suit. I think it’s because her mind doesn’t work in words. It works too fast for words to keep up.

    We don’t have squirrels Alana. They look cute in pictures but the ones I’ve seen in the flesh don’t look so cute!

    “As you might have gathered”, no, not gathered that at all.

    My eclectic interest in words coupled with an immensely advanced age and playful personality means I hoover up interesting words that are not oft encountered and tend to indulge myself by dropping ’em into conversation. Intending that the experience is entertaining for all. Especially conversations with bright youngsters that enjoy banter. I see it as encouraging people to look in the nooks and crannies beyond the modern, everyday parlance and enjoy the experience. I hated Eng Lit in school, never liked poetry. But I do like playing with words.

    “Top Gear Patagonia special”

    I’ve been a Top Gear fan ever since Clarkson tested an open single-seater and his face rippled as if in a wind tunnel. I recorded and replayed it and the sight of it had me laughing for days.

    “mellifluous” is my mood right now. I want to lean back and click on every Like in sight. When I arrived back from China I brought a few days of bad weather with me. Since then it has been weather made in heaven. In China the other team is catching up on the project now. I could be called back there any day. If I’m suddenly not here, you’ll know why.

    I’ll leave R and A in charge, and Molly might choose to stay here as well. I don’t use the world wide web in China. If you want to make contact, leave a msg in the Molly gmail. I might set up a gmail for R and A as well. We’ll see.
