Thanks Aqua. Haven't seen you for a while. I was wondering if you were okay.

Over 30C in your part of the world in May does seem a bit much, Bonny. Hope you're feeling better today.
Yes, everything's ok, I've been busy working, and working out and playing the guitar, I've learnt quite a few songs, actually. :guitar2:

You know what I'm doing now that it's 30 deg C here?
Knitting a jumper. :biggrin:

Good to see everyone having a laugh. I've just been hammering away at the piano. I need a break from all this physics from time to time. On the up side, I can tell you what a Higgs boson is, if you've ever wondered.

Ah that's great, how's the piano working out for you?

Found a very strange bug in the garden earlier today, wish I'd taken a photo...

Damn, that's not very practical, but I guess that where you draw your astonshing and renowned fearlessness.
You should make a comics of your adventures, you could call it The Astounnding Somnambula.

Nonono, poly, you don't play the piano with hammers, it's not the proper way, or perhaps if you belong to the John Cage School of Bricolage and Music.

I've read a bit about the Higgs boson when it came out, it's overrated, imo. ;) Just kidding, that's awesome actually.

Another awesome thing I read about yesterday was articles about the discovery of gravitational waves, check them out.

Very funny!

Meanwhile, not very funny at all, is London right now.

Or Eindhoven...

My old bosses from the newspaper round had had enough on their plate last year - husband Henk suffers diabetes and had a long list of problems with his eyes, feet and kidneys - as he was brought home from dialysis, the taxidriver helping him let him slip and Henk stubbed his toe on the taxi porch. Harmless for most, but because of his diabetes and ill foot health, it meant he had to amputate two toes. In the hospital the wound got infected and he gradually lost more and more, then the infection spread to his other leg - now both legs are amputated.
Henk and Nel were hoping for a quiet year after all that happened - but yesterday they were pulled out of their house at 1AM by the fire brigade. Something burning had landed on the balcony above them and set fire to the entire block. Their flat is now uninhabitable. Lines of inquiry are into an aimed attack.

Damned, that sucks!

The same thing happened to my grandmother (on my mother's side), she had diabetes, hurt her toe, had it amputated, then the leg, then the other leg, and then she died. It was strange seeing her disappear piece by piece, but after the first leg, I knew she wouldn't last long. She was not the kind of woman who would finish her life in a wheelchair.

Sorry to hear that... poor woman...

Police no longer think it was arson, so that's a plus I suppose...

Wow. That certainly changes the mood. But I can relate. My mother is really far gone with dementia and it kills me every time I visit. And my exam today was complete disaster. Luckily it was only for part of that particular course and I have a chance to redeem myself with the exam for the other part in a week and a half.

Damn, sorry about your mother Poly, that's really a difficult situation to go through.
As for the exams, i'm sure you'll do just fine in 1&1/2 week, come on, we know you can do it. Actually, we know you WILL do it. ;)
