The Loch Tay Monster.

Tippy rounding up the Loch Tay monster!All readings are taken from a sheltered location in our garden and cover a 24 hour period starting at 6pm.
Low Temp: -5.1C
High Temp: 9.9C
Rainfall: 0.0mm
Strongest Gust of wind: 0.7 mph.
Weather Today: Warm in the sun but very cold out of it. A very hard frost last night.
This picture was taken this morning when me and Tom were on our morning walk, it was nice and sunny with everything covered in silver frost.

Today I had to go to the garden centre to fetch something for work so whilst I was there I got a couple of cheap pots for myself. I think I already told you that rather than pick up the left overs from the garden at work I would try and grow my own veg in containers at home as I don't have a big enough garden to be able to have a plot just for veg. So here is one of my new pots planted up with Spring Cabbage and a few primulas.
In this pot there are three Cauliflowers and somemore Primulas. I'm wondering if I'm over doing it by putting three plants in one pot. Its all trial and error at the moment so we will have to learn and modify if need be.
My hand is getting much better now, in fact its progressing so well that I may even show Vicki later. I daren't show her before or she may have whisked me off to the hospital - she's like that LOL! By the way Jeanette, you can't beat a few germs now and again, it helps keep the immune system tuned up!

Thanks for your advice about the anti virus software Jim . I've always had 'Norton Internet Security' on my computer but on Saturday I changed this to 'Norton 360' which as you say Jim gives you the chance to hook up three computers too it. I managed to put mine and Fallon's computer on to it but something happened when I was putting Vicki's on and now there is an error when I try to install it. I tried to download it again but it said that it was already downloaded but I don't think it is, not properly anyway as I can't find it anywhere on the computer. Anyway what I've done for now is to put her on what was left of my 'Internet Security'. There is another 10 months to run on it so she may was well use it up. Thanks for the advice anyway.

The Scotland picture tonight is of Tommy and Tippy taking a dip in Loch Tay.


Tuesday 18th February 1992.
His lordships cat has flees in its ears. When his lordship was told of this he instructed me to take it to the vets. He said that Dave couldn't do it as he has enough to do already, I suppose he thinks I haven't! I was livid. I'm busting a gut trying to get this place presentable and all the thanks I get are insults like that. In the end Dave did take the cat. Vicki has had a terrible headache all day.

I guess looking back taking the cat to the vets was no big deal and he probably wasn't taking any kind of a dig at the amount of work I had to do. The thing is though this sort of thing was happening day after day one way or another and it all just gets too much in the end.

Y'all take care now,

Hi Bob;

Your walk with Tom looks lovely...what a beautiful serene time of day for you.

Your pots look great, I can't believe after all your hard work that you'd want to do any more gardening. You must truly love what you do ;-)

I can imagine how frustrating it must be to work so hard and have so little notice taken. Best to always do your best though, as in the end you win!
