It's a shame, Lighter, I've always loved big gatherings, especially the ones where everyone brings something for the table; it means you can all enjoy food together without any one person having to do a huge amount of work for it.  But the dynamics can be difficult and it's such a shame that people can't just be polite or just avoid each other for a couple of hours.  I stopped having them where we lived before because by the time you'd worked out which people couldn't stand each other, which ones would be offended if they didn't get an invite, which ones would turn up without food but want to eat and which would bring kids/dogs/partners that didn't behave themselves, it just got too much to deal with and it's such a pity.  What a shame they couldn't all just get along for a while or at least be polite enough not to draw you into their drama.  Sometimes I think it's easier to stick to kids parties and make the adults stay at home lol xx

Try rubbing cauliflower down with oil and butter then spices to roast in the oven whole.  You can cut a little dent into top for more butter and spices to sink in as it cooks.  Pretty popular with us right now.

That sounds yummy, it's making me feel hungry!  Definitely on the list for next week xx

One more Preen question, Lighter.

Best timing? Beds are still a mess and I'll have to hire somebody to clean them out for me.

thanks!

Thanks, Lighter.

And I have to edit myself:

Hypnosis is like intense concentration using all your mindpower, while in the deepest state of relaxation you've ever experienced, without being self-conscious or worrying about anything.

There are also plenty of sources that teach SELF-hypnosis (handy during pandemics!). The only important thing is to be certain you're trusting teachers/guides that are certified hypnotherapists with professional training. It is part art, part intuition, part neuroscience.

The chattiest male neighbor doesn't like the Lady doctor and her ukulele/guitar building world class mountain climbing husband I THINK bc of a bear altercation involving a mama and cub.  It was reported the cub was shot.  Authorities were sent out.  Only the dog was injured and the shot was in the air, but everyone on the community message board went nuts for a while.

The chatty neighbor was quiet and stand offish one minute, then making my elderly neighbor lady titter over things.....I assume funny sly jokes were told with eyes shifting to oblivious doc and hubby who reminds me of Mr. Rogers.

Chatty also talked about the I'll behaved puppy, which is rich, bc he has an even worse behaved puppy of the same age and size.  The new puppy ticked off Pug and a Corgy with no social skills....so there were dogs fighting.

The next day Chatty man commented about the doc, mainly, and how odd it was she asked for smoked chicken skin silence she runs a hospital and should know better.  He also felt she should know better than to attend our gathering without a mask, which we all did, bc it was all outdoors.

Sometimes it feels a little like they want me to choose between them.....they do nice things for me.....Mr. Rogers made a custom wood worked fake owl mount for my roof and Chatty jumps into lots of my projects....comments....suggests.  Mr. Rogers chopped a big root for me the other day.

Only Chatty says negative things....also a little anger issue going on....you see it with his dog.

I know never ever to do a large gathering again.  We had small ones on my porch and they were much more fun, esp catered bbq instead of smoked at neighbor's.  Too much work and no goid deed goes unpunished.

I love cauliflower curry, Lighter, I'll have that one night next week, not had it for ages!  I feel safe enough to eat fresh, I'm just still trying to avoid the shops as much as possible (and deliveries are still tending to mean you get the crappy stuff that no-one bought!).  I've just got into a bit of a rut with food, I suppose, plus I've been trying not to over eat due to being home so much and healthy food just doesn't make me want to fill my face in the same way :)

The moss work sounds great; you've got a good system going :)  I hope the next holiday lady does enjoy it and spreads the word a bit, I'll bet plenty of people will be wanting to take advantage of all the holidays they've missed once things open up again properly.

My mother wished been an architect.

The Hol Hut sounds just right for that space and for Hol.  I'm so happy she's IN!

How does your house feel now?

That's really interesting, Lighter.

Would the Preen stuff be a good thing to put on my clapped-out veggie beds once all the rest is pulled up?

thanks,
Hops
