      Good morning everyone...*Huggles* for all here and not here!

      Well, this morning I called to make an appointment with my hand surgeon. Going on Thursday. Very excited to get my hand repaired - buy three new knuckles () and repair the bones. I might have an almost normal hand when AT6 comes along! (Hopefully)!

      So we have a discussion about being a "fan" club.....NO WAY! Fans are made up of people who do strange things, say strange things, probably drink too much, and.....hmmmm sounds suspiciously familiar!

      Seriously, we are people who appreciate a really good thing when we see it! And his directing is fantastic so.........

          Or, er, might not be the same one as Benjabubs' version doesn't have pressy buttony thingies (just lift the flaps).
          Yep, that's the one He just has the noisy version. But he's also able to make lots of the noises himself if you ask him what a lion does or what a snake does or what a monkey does (the last is the cutest )

          OK, questions:
          When there's ice on the lakes and deep puddles do you guys traditionally grab your ice skates and head out? Is it more a thing for kids to do?
          ...Do you own ice skates?

          I'm curious.
          Seconding Jumble's no for the UK. I think also it could be because it's really very rare for any outdoor body of water to freeze solid enough to skate on. There are quite a few outdoor rinks set up each winter, but again those are artificial.

            Ah yes that makes sense.

              I'm glad to be seeing the surgeon as well. Have no idea when the surgery will happen, only going to see what I need to do, etc. But I suspect within the next few months for sure. Heard the doctor was out sick, but he is back again so.....

              As for ice skating outside. That is not an uncommon thing in some states, but most of the US have no frozen bodies of water all winter. But places like Wisconsin and other such states, yes, they skate on lakes and river beds as long as the ice is thick enough. Plus ice hockey is a very popular sport especially in cold country.

              As for writing, I'm trying to finish the book I'm working on, but if not, I won't get much done. I tried typing this note left handed and it took way too long. So..
              I gave up and used both hands then correct the mistakes I see. But I am having more and more problems holding things in my right hand, and occasionally I drop them. I have to take care of this.

              So are all you UKers still covered in snow?

                  You could get yourself one of those computers that types out whatever you say to it........... mind you, that could be fun in the editing stage

                  I still have snow, and it's forecast to freeze tonght (-8C), so it could be very slippery out there tomorrow Doesn't bother me, I don't usually go out on Wednesdays

                    Poor thing!

                    I have no ice skates either. My knee doesn't like skating anymore but I used to love it when I was younger.
                    Meh. No 'Elfstedentocht' for us then.





                    Same goes for the Dutch.
                    Small country, lots of water...
                    Which is why the Dutch and the Canadians have such good speed skaters!

                    There is a small river near where I live. Twice in 20 years it has frozen over before we received any snow. Most wonderful experience to be able to skate over the entire surface, icluding in and around trees, bullrushes, etc. Beautiful patterns in the ice when air bubbles are surrounded by frozen water. On one of those occasions it was actually very warm one day when we went skating, warm enough that there were golfers out on the course along the river. I wish i had a camera with me to show the golfers coming over the hill and us on the ice skating!


                    Thanks to Pengyn, SamJackShipLover and Mala for the sig.

                      We're not allowed to skate on our river,mostly because it never freezes.. so those skating rings for us too, though I don't skate much. Skiing I like, but was forbidden to do it, because I don't know how to stop. But I always watch those skating shows, you know when there's a bunch of skaters and they do it with music and they have cute/crazy/horrible outfits.

                        Me on ice-skates?

                        Hm.

                        Why does that make me think of the dancing hippos in Fantasia?

                          Ice-skating is confined to ice-rinks, where most people hire skates

                          Yeah, what she said. Although I did used to own ice skates as a kid. From about 10 until I was 16. I was a regular at Richmond Ice Rink... then they closed it.

                          Well in that case, I guess we're part-way towards being The Official Martin Wood Fan Club

                          But only part-way
                          Fan clubs need chairs and treasurers, trustees, that sort of thing.... nah, far too organised!

                          I've had a lovely (hopefully for a while anyway) last trip to Tower Hamlets. I decided sod the congestion charge cost, let's drive through the centre of town and take in the sights. London is a truly crazy, jumbled up city. Just when you think it's nothing more than a grubby mass of hideous tall tower blocks, the road opens up and there in front of you is a wonderful open park, or an amazing statue, or the most awesome architecture. Beautiful in its own wonderful way.

                                It is the architectual details in the old buildings for one thing. Modern buildings all glass and steel do not have the same charm. Love the ease of getting around by way of the underground. Love the museums. Love the history.
