Ah, but we're all out of virtual cheese. I've got these virtual zucchini I've been wanting to grill... and these virtual portobello mushrooms - shall we throw those on and see what happens?

I can't eat virtual red meat anyway, but I have some chicken breasts.

I just went up to fix the broken link and decided to update that photography page: about half the pictures are new, at http://www.asterlil.com/ott/photography/PhotoGall.html .

And the piece of wood actually reminded me of a male torso, now I come to look at it again.

It looks a bit like a torso, or perhaps the back of a hand... There's definitely an organic muscular quality to the wood surface.

Like those infrared photos! Have you photographed any wild animals yet?

A guacamole! I love guacamole and dips for breakfast!


I went to an exhibition of horse art with my mate Carole the Artist last night. She had three or four pieces entered. (Which reminds me, I must add an announcement about the exhibition to her website.)

The most arresting piece there comprised a couple of pieces of wood taller than they were wide, and a large red oval glass ball. The piece of wood on the left was about 14" high, and had a knot hole near the top left, behind which the glass ball had been placed, and a smaller knot hole bottom left. The grain swirled up and around the knots. The piece of the wood on the right was placed slightly behind the piece on the left and was wider though with similarly curved grain. It had no knots.

The astonishing thing was that it *did* look like a horse. It was, however, like the optical illusion - is it an old woman or is it a young girl - that one. As you looked, it could have been a horse looking forward, but depicting only its right eye, or it could have been a horse in profile depicting its left eye and jawline.

A truly stunning piece of work. I had my mobile with me, but I didn't think to photograph it.

Oh dear it's the cattle prod for me then. I'll take it bravely smiley - brave

The terrible, terrible events in Russia infiltrated SWG and the feeling of horror is felt world wide, I can assure you.

Amy, the funny thing about sunsets is that they do seem absolutely glorious on the worst of days. They have always given me hope that there are better days to come.

*settles into a chair on the terrace*

I love Indian Summers, this weekend is forecasted as scorchio.

The best sunsets are caused by the worst things. Usually fire... When California was combusting two years ago, SLC had the very best sunsets. We also have great sunsets when the smog is terrible.

I hope yesterday's sunset wasn't the result of fire smiley - yikes. If it was, then Bradford has gone up in flames and no one has noticed smiley - silly. Perhaps Orm will be along soon to reassure us.

Lil, I'm always available for a cookout. Sounds like we're having grilled chicken breasts topped with Monterey Jack and portobellos. You can't get much better than that. For those of us not low-carbing, I'll whip up a quick batch of kaiser rolls to hold those and some fresh salsa. Oh, and I have some hand-cranked peach ice cream and a large platter of snickerdoodles.

Good beer, but I hate the marketing. You can't tell what's in the bottle half the time. Is "Potion #9" an ale or a lager or stout? And what the heck is "Hocus Pocus"?

I had completely forgotten I was first to the forum once. Thanks for the tally, DD. And this is a lovely and extremely useful golden clothespin /* Demonstrates by putting it on his nose */ Jersey Gummo still smells but not quite as bad. I expect another day maybe.

FG, I have the same problem with a tree and a sewer line, but unfortunately no landlord to pay for repairs. I don't want to kill the tree that's doing the damage, so I end up having the drain rotorootered every 2 or 3 years. I hate dumping obnoxious poisons down the drain to kill the roots because of the environmental damage that it does. There is supposedly a newer product that is far less obnoxious and damaging, but strangely you need to be a licensed plumber to obtain it. Meanwhile the destroy-everything-in-its-path chemicals are available at your local hardware store.

LTP, go into your Internet Settings, advanced tab and shut off the javascript debugging and error warnings. There are better tools if you need them, and they may drive you insane if you leave them on.

Now that I think about it, it may be too late smiley - winkeye

Lil, my condolences on Lazarus. He looked like a beautiful animal. But he was lucky, that is probably an exceptionally long life for a wolf.

Wolfgang, can I get one of those breasts with NO portobello, since I'm allergic to mushrooms? Thanks. And low carb. Even better.

I had the tree root problem once. The big oak in my grandparents' front yard. And all those years, my grandmother told everyone that things backed up if you used too much soap!

I had a similar problem with my septic system back in Florida. There was a chinese elm that infiltrated the leach line with hair roots.
