Lived in KW many years ago, didn't have heat. One chilly morning it was in the 60's and we had to turn on the oven to take the chill off.
Did many die from hypothermia that morning?

Re: Sublime Sunday @ the MSC

We live in VA & have a wood burning stove for the main heat but also propane heat as backup. Hubby cuts the wood for the stove & I pay the propane bill so it works out :lol: I've always lived in VA and we have always needed a heat source - would not know what it's like to live without that...maybe ...

Re: Sublime Sunday @ the MSC

Well it's Monday morning and of course the wet weather has abated.

Forecast is for mid to high 80's and an evening storm. Not only has Spring sprung, Summer is a knocking too.

Re: Sublime Sunday @ the MSC

Afternoon BNers It's all about Beta in this area. Mike Siedel is in Port Lavaca TX. Larry's parents had a house there for years. TWC still doesn't know where Beta is going to make landfall. Looks like it might not make hurricane status but lots of rain. Guess we will wait and see. This use of Greek...

Re: Sublime Sunday @ the MSC

We have a furnace in our attic too.... doesn't everyone? We don't have a furnace at all. I guess choosing to live where it doesn't snow was the correct choice :) As a kid it always had me stumped when on US tv shows they always had this behemoth of a thing with flames in it in the basement. I alway...

Re: Announcing the Saturday Special @ the MSC

Summer must be on it's way.

A day or so before the Vernal Equinox and the first Eastern Koel is currently calling out.

Let's hope it's just not as dramatic as last Summer!

Cleaning out our linen shelves. How can we be missing sheets? We have a flat but no fitted sheet. Or fitted and no flat. And so many extra pillow cases. I give up.
The result of too many Toga Parties?

Re: What are YOU reading?

In a surprise two sitting effort I have just devoured From Snow to Ash by Anthony Sharwood. The blurb: At the start of the hellish, fiery Australian summer of 2019/20, Walkley Award-winning journalist and suburban dad Anthony Sharwood set off on a journey. Abandoning his post on a busy news website ...

Re: What's Up FRIDAY @ the MSC

Hi All, Just finished reading 'From Snow to Ash' by Anthony Sharwood. It is about a trek he made on the Australian Alpine Walking Track last summer. An interesting insight into solo long distance trekking. The adventure takes a few turns, especially when you remember last Summer's fires in the high ...

Re: Monte Cristo THURS @ the MSC

How, exactly, are they allowed to call themselves a hotel without a bar? Surely that makes them a motel or flophouse! There are MANY hotels in the US that are very nice, but don't offer a bar. Another case of two cultures separated by a common language. Hotel has two distinct meanings here in Oz. B...

But I have to agree that Greek names are much prettier. Not sure NB is on that list though :wink:

Re: Monte Cristo THURS @ the MSC

Can't tell you how many times i have come in from a late day at work, and taken an Uber from the airport to the McGuires with my luggage. Taken my luggage into the bar and had dinner and beers, then Uber'd it home from there. Get some funny looks coming in with luggage and everything else. :pirate:...

Never had one, and never even heard of one..........but now i really feel stupid......
Don't feel too bad, we'd never had a real one until we first visited New Caledonia, it's a French territory so is dripping with wonderful French cuisine.

It's heresy, I tells ya! Dog Damb Heresy. Calling a Croque Monsieur a fried ham and cheese sandwich. I have never heard such a culinary faux pas.

Looking at a 85°F day with heavy smoke haze. sounds like you are hangin with Moog? Except ours aren't quite so out of control. But I guess we need to get used to it as this will be the new norm. More storms, more and bigger fires, but as the western world govt's seem beholden to fossil fuel compani...

Re: Middle of Sept TUESDAY @ the MSC

Well Spring has sprung. And the grass is riz. I wonder were the birdies iz? No need to answer that - they're all in our back garden, squawking and fighting. Apparently WWIII is happening in our callistemon (bottle brush) trees. We have a few pairs of Rainbow Lorikeets that we feed semi-regularly, al...
