Re: Weather!

What a mixture of sun, rain and a light hail here in Basel this afternoon! I could see the blue skies coming my way as the rain battered against the windows.

Forecast for the next two days looks like spring: sunshine and 13-14°

Oh yes! I went out to the store in between rain showers and was amazed at the "fresh spring showers" scent!

Now, I could come up with some philosophical (esoteric?) explanation for that.

But I won't.

Re: Weather!

Not sure what Curley would say, but i am already tired of these black and red ladybug looking things! There is nothing exciting for them in our place, nothing! Sure they don't live off my farts?! .... Do they???

well, curley would say you either don't need any luck or don't come moaning on EF when things go wrong!

So they all moved in with you, huh? I haven't seen any for weeks now
I find them very pretty by the way. You're welcome to send them back to me anytime.

You must be very lucky, then. Buy a lottery ticket. Lady bugs are good luck!

Well, there the pretty ladybugs, which i love too, but there are the pesky ones, that play drums in my lamp shades...

Waiting for the right weather to welcome spiders in - i find them helpful.

Well I’ll probably regret this but I’ve just put the Big Coat back in the cupboard.

Well, this is British or American ..... we don't speak English in Europe, remember?
So this does not concern us

There's more spring today. God exists, he heard my prayers...

And a bug report from Romandie - no bugs. Venus, stop farting!

Just this week I caught strep throat, my car broke down and I need minor surgery. I think I have bad karma

Re: Weather!

Today I am going to pretend that Spring is not only here, but here to stay! So in celebration I am planting onions, shallots, potatoes and lettuce in the garden. And the weekend rain can water them all in for me

And neither is the Republic of Ireland by Curley's logic.

If you believe in karma you know what (who) builds it up
So turn the rudder. If it's not karma it will still help

Not according to the Brits as you should know better. They always "travel to Europe" when they enter the ferry

Do they?
I've never heard anyone say that ever in all my years of travelling on the ferry and trust me I've done it an awful lot over the years.
