Toerag Wera died last friday night, it was so sad brought tears tae ma eyes. Seemingly for health reasons she had to give up work she is an ill woman , in real life. So she had to be written out. A brilliant actress and will be a great miss in corrie.

Ach Betty that is sad about Vera, I really enjoyed her on the show! We will not see it for months but will be watching when it comes on over here! Thanks!
tammy
Holey Moley! What have I missed???? I always miss everything! LOL! I come on to see what's happening and see the new rules and wonder what has been going on??? Aww Keelie, sorry about your wee cottage being canceled, I know how excited you were for it. But, wasn't that lovely of the woman to offer you a free weekend when it's up and running again. Angie, how was your Mum's birthday? Is she doing better now? Georgia are you a granny yet???? Today was my first day off, and I spent it cleaning..as usual! I swear to god!!!!!!!! And I'm nowhere near finished. You'd never know that 4 other people live here, because nobody thinks the place needs cleaning. And don't say leave it, because I did..and so did they!!!! I really think I need a housekeeper!!! Well I had a wonderful birthday, got spoiled and am still receiving things from friends. I'm really overwhelmed by all the kind wishes and gifts. I've brought in a box of chocolates because I need help eating them all before I become twice my size!!!!! Well, I'll go have a wee peak. I haven't had much time lately other than poping into the gallery quickly to see wee Blossom show us all her clever new moves!!! Talk soon. Oh Betty you off to Vegas??????
tammy
Toerag, I have heard that the woman who plays Vera has the beginning of Azheimer's not sure if it's correct information mind. I will miss her also.
Java

Never got back on been checkin out travel insurance, really quite high for the usa and my age, also wance you give youre medical background phewwwwwwww
betty2
Past ma bedtime good nite zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Isobel
Betty not sure if this is of any help to you . For years Jim and I paid travel insurance then four years ago went to the bank to get it and the girl informed us that we did'nt need it. Apparently if we book our trip with our master card we have a million dollars insurance. We looked into it and sure enough it was right. Last year I had a claim ,no bother I got my money, so check it out.
Isobel
I am getting ready right now for my trip going once again to Dominican for the month of February . Not much snow here this year,but oh so cold. Always nice to get away at this time of the year.Need that break, makes the winter seem so much shorter.
betty2
Thanks Isobel but dont have mastercard ah just use my bank card. for all transactions

This was a problem for me when paying my hotel booking apparently it could only be done with a credit card, I had to withdraw the money from my bank , give it to my daughter and she done the necessary with her card. Ready cash bein refused wink.gif hard to understand
Catherine
Guess it depends who's bookin it betty.......naebudy seems tae waant Monoply money fae me an ahv goat hunners of it annaw........bloody typical laugh.gif

We're insured wae our Visa, but is Medical no different Isobel?
I always take out Medical for me an the boys when we travel, never had tae use it but if anythin biggie happent it's worth it ah think, cripes that's aw ahd need!!

We'd the snaw storm here this afternoon, wis jist oot ma nightly walk there an wis huvin a rerr terr peekin in aw the windaes ah passed.
Ah love tae see how others dae up therr hooses, some wid cry me nosy but ahm jist interested ...y'no.
Ah counted three telly's oan in bedrooms upsterrs, only passed wan wae therr telly in the livinroom {most folk here huv their tellys in the basement......livinroom's like the Front Parlour, ahm readin a book oan Jane Austin the noo so ahv went aw hither an dither an wherr art thouest dearest...Oh prayeth for noteth the malais the malais laugh.gif }
Ahm gaunni kill ma pal cos she telt me she'd hung the mirror we shopped fur ower three weeks ago an it's no hung yit.....cos ah wis peekin in an her blinds wur open...ah mean how COULD ye no hing it as soon as ye'v goat it, that wid send me ower the edge.
Geoffs intae his second day in the new job, so far so great.

Ahm offski up the sterrs furra read, no sure if this books gaunni make it but ah'll plod oan incase it grips me.

Whit dae ye make of Heath Ledger that actor eh....bloody shame.
Jist goes tae show disnae matter how wealthy or famous, when yer sad yer sad an ye jist hope ye remember tae look for those brighter days. God Rest him, so young .
tammy
The things you learn when you come on and visit with your pals here. Isobel, I never knew that abou Mastercard either. Interesting. We're still trying to find somethign reaonable for Spring Break, it's maddening to see how they jack the prices up at that time. We only have this year and next to worry about school holidays thank god. Angie, I'm laughing at you saying planet revolves around me. LOL! It's the same here, we have 4 phones and nobody answers it when it's ringing, dives me nuts! They all look at the call display and if it's not for them the don't bother. Grrr! Had a couple more birthday cards arrive today, one from a friend in Alberta and a wondrful card and gift from my pal Keelie. She sent me some bautiul silver and topaz earrings. Very pretty indeed. An Jakka had sent me about 8 packages of bath gel/foams..smell lovely! I really did get spoiled. I'm gonna leave my cards out an enjoy them for awhile. Angie glad your Mum enjoyed her birthday too. Catherine, where is Geoff's new job???? What's he doing now? Well tea's ready and I have snuck in some of Phil's chocolate covered biscuits, so enjoy. He doesn't need them. LOL! Catherine, I'm the same as you, I always look in the windows at night. If they don't want anyone looking in, they should pull the blinds.
Isobel
Catherine to answer your question, yes it does cover us for medical.We have a gold card it covers all the members of our family. If you go on their web site you can read up on it. If you take even just one holiday a year its well worth it.
Have to tell you my pal and I go for walks at night and we always look in the houses. If they leave the drapes open what do they expect. I wish you could hear Marie and I as we walk along. She will say my god Isobel take a look at that or maybe we will be blown away with the paint colours. I know we are just a couple of busy bodies.

Tammy glad you had a good birthday, was it a special one.
Angela Chick

Cream cakes keeps the jaws in action an strengthens the muscles of the tongue when some a the cream squirts oot.
Last but not least ye'v the choaclate, picture Fat takin the place a Guilt an afore ye no it ye'll hae burned aff mare than whit ye started wae.
