Moonie, that's good of you to send Yogi a snow plough

 

Yogi walked by the lough (means loch) with the plough, finding it tough as she went through the snow doing a thorough job though had a cough and later a hiccough.

An unusual sentence showing 8 different ways of pronouncing words ending in ough.

 

 Love it, El 

 

Thanks for the snowplough, Moonie. We had some sleet this afternoon and some of the snow has melted.

Most welcome Yogi 

Hold the Sunset starts on Sunday on BBC1 at 19.30 before Call the Midwife. 6 part sitcom.

 

Edith's dreams of retirement to the sun with her long-term suitor Phil are shattered when her 50-year-old son Roger arrives home, seeking to recapture the happiness of his boyhood.

 

Considering that Edith is played by Alison Steadman and Phil by John Cleese this looks promising. It's also got Peter Egan in.

I’m not overly keen on John Cleese but I do like Alison Steadman and Peter Egan so I’m going to give it a go

Oh my goodness! I feel like violet in Charlie & the chocolate factory after she balloons up like a giant blueberry!!!! Pancake day has been so much fun, I’ve cooked for 2 different parties and done one dressed as a Disney princess! 

 

I hope you've all had a fab day  

 Sounds like a lot of fun, Summer

 

Goodnight and sweet dreams, Summer and Ros

Good afternoon Buddies  

We have had the kitchen sink today. By that I mean, it’s been windy, cold, snow, sleet and now rain 

I actually managed to find a dry bit to bank though 

 

I am back in the warm now and plan to stay indoors 

Have a good day but stay warm and cosy

I’m glad you managed to do your banking during a dry spell

We’ve had snow, followed by sleet. I haven’t ventured out so I’m warm and cosy.

That’s good news Yogi 

It did everything before I went out and since I have been back, so very lucky 

Moonie, that was good timing on your part

(x - y) times ((x+y) equals x² - y². If x = 80 and y = 2 then x-y=78 and x+y=82 so 78 x 82 = 80² - 2² = 6400 - 4 = 6396.

I knew that El 

*crosses fingers behind back* 

And if you think about it, it means that the difference between the squares of two whole numbers cannot be a prime number.

 

Yogi, I won't ask you to differentiate with respect to you

Good morning everyone

 

Sunny and less cold here. Temperatures closer to normal for the next few days but in the latter part of next week for the following couple of weeks there's a possibility of the temperature crashing down to being really cold.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

The weather has changed since I posted this morning. There is now an icy wind and it has started to rain.

 

El, I have saved that pic to show the tiddlers.

 

I hope they like that photo  I didn't post it here because the article says that all the photos are subject to copyright.

 I’ll only show it to the tiddlers then delete it.

 

On second thoughts, I’ll save the link and delete the pic - to be on the safe side

I've found that the photographer, Grant Thomas, has a website of his photos and you can buy prints of them.
http://www.grantthomasphotography.com/Gallery

 

The photo on the BBC site is on his website, the first one included on the marine life section (that's where he's put it ) It costs £1.95 for a small print, various higher prices for larger sizes up to £58.95 for the largest size. I don't know if there's postage and packing charge on top.

You can get a much better view of  the picture on his site compared to the BBC.
