    Yesterday it looked like we would get the 'eye' of Aileen but perhaps it will miss us. Can't say I'm disappointed! Summers been over up here since June! Smile. Derek

    Last night we put our heating on, what ever happened to summer. We worked outside for years, jeez I'm glad we are retired. The older we get the less we can take the cold weather, hopefully we will never be in a position, to have to decide between good food or turning the heating on, as so many old folk have to do. We are one of the richest countries in the world, yet people go hungry or cold, its a total scandal, in a country that can afford nuclear powered and armed submarines.

For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    We awoke to sunny skies this morning, but during the day the rain arrived! It really is strange weather at the moment.

    I read that " Storm Aileen felled trees, burst river banks and brought down power cables across parts of the UK.
    The power of the storm – fuelled by gales of up to 75mph – was undeniable as it knocked electricity out of thousands of homes and snarled up transport networks.
    Inevitably however, there were parts of the country which were spared Aileen’s  wrath. Amidst a flurry of dramatic pictures and hair-raising accounts, those luckier pockets of Britain have detailed their own lesser experiences with mandatory lashings of sarcasm..."

    Well we were ok ... the wind did whirl around for a while, but no damage - hope other readers were fortunate too!

    All the best Jan

    Not been out today but we seem to have missed the worst of the storm no reports of felled trees or any major damage in the local area  Very Happy

    Yup got my heating on now too.

    We got howling winds and rain bucketing down most of the night. I didn't go out to look yet but I heard a few trees had gone. I heard a neighbour's bin blow over in the street. I had the sense not to put mine out until this morning, then realised I still hadn't done so, collected up all the recycling - a month's worth as I often don't have enough to be bothered to put the bin out every fortnight - then went and tipped it all into the landfill bin. Grrrr . . .

    . . . had to pick up the bin and tip the contents into the Blue Bin. Those suckers are heavy, man.

    Before the storm arrived it was a really decent sunny day for a change, so I walked over some other fields and sat on a different grassy bank for a while.

    Still no sign of the Kites, though a neighbour the other end of the road has seen them more often than me, he doesn't know where they are based either.

    Strangely no Buzzards. In fact not much of anything except the sodding pigeons. A few Skylarks, what I first thought was seven Yellowhammers on the power lines, but through the bins only two of them were actually Yellowhammers, the rest were the customary Linnets. Not even many of them, probably about twenty, trying to count the flock that flew up onto the lines and the ones left among the stubbles, and a slightly windblown House Martin.

    Never mind, I caught plenty of sun for the first time in ages.
    Today, not so much.

    Hi Chris, do you feel cold with your thyroid problems?

    A bit when I overtreat it and it goes low, but not nearly as much as I used to when I was HCLF.
