  1. Woohoo! Congratulations to @lynxster4 @DrewDale & @Pixey Lovely entries!
  2. Ooooh I missed your birthday. I am so sorry for missing it & for you feeling poorly too. May it pass quickly!
  3. Thank you all! I had the most fantastic day both at work & at home. The most amazing things happened & I could not have asked for a better birthday.
  4. Wishing you a very happy birthday, @Manc!
  5. And we are so pleased to have you back. I know you will rest
  6. Congratulations @Pixey, @lynxster4, & @AndrewDavid. Very nice entries from you all! It was a great theme! So lovely to see & share how we all view the world even in mundane things like letter or mailboxes.
  7. Thank you so much @ReMake. What a big job! You are indeed a
  8. Australians love football a lot. So much so that they have flown in 2 teams AND their families to play a game on our minuscule footy grounds (we are a provincial city of around 80,000 people!). The grounds at best will hold around 5,000. Oh well done Rocky! (Rockhampton). Supposed to inject $2M into our economy. Hmm. I'm not that great at maths but I fail to see how. Lovely isn't it? Well it would be if the borders between us & the state the players & families were coming from & to top it off, a known out-of-control Covid hotspot. Some locals are telling folk so long as you don't attend the game, you will be safe from Covid & state they DO know how the virus spreads. We have been so fortunate up here that we have not had a single case at all. A few scares, but we have never been seriously affected. I work with vulnerable people. I have only had my first shot, so yeah, I am worried that I still have to wait 2 weeks before I can get my final dose. I haven't mentioned the vaccine shortage here, have I? The biggest danger from Covid, I perceive, is stupid people. I am really very angry now.
  9. Inspired by a sphere of Australian Mookaite, this 1920 x 1080 wallpaper is called Mooka, which is of course, short for Mookaite. Aussies like to play with names of things.
  10. Oh no! Please do post it in your gallery. I didn't get to do any. Working in the yard today KOed me good.
  11. That is what I felt like today. Hot in the middle of winter have 30 deg C! The colours in this one are rather soothing too. I keep getting drawn to the centre & imagine that I am looking at the core of the sun! Good work!
  12. Gosh, how different we all are! I see on the telly that people get letters dropped through a slot in their front door. Our houses are very different as are our streets. How cool to have letters dropped through your front door! I have to walk down the stairs, along the garden path to the mailbox to collect any letters. Not that we get many. Just some bills BUT crystal deliveries are soemtimes found in there too Wayyyyy too big for a slot in the door. Hope to see your entry soon. Doubt if I will get time but you never know
  13. Oh really? I did not know that! We have to take our mail to the post office. Only incoming mail gets dropped in ours. How cool!
  14. Interesting entries in the letterbox comp. In Australia we call them mailboxes. The boxes are very much like the US type but they don't have a flag so you have to go out to the mailbox & open it to see if you have mail. Lovely entries so far too!
  15. I have not seen it so I can't say. However, we should be mindful that animated/flashing images can cause issues for people, so yes, please, @Pixeycan we remedy?
  16. Beautiful entries! Congratulations @Pixey& @MJW! Well done @Manc, @Ladybug& @ardneh!
  17. Ok, AZ shot done! Either I am really a sooky lala or this thing really did a number on me. Raging fever, headache from hell (mind you I put a lot of that down to the optician's drops to dilate the pupils just so she can tell me she suspects the beginning of glaucoma), aches that roam & hit different spots, nausea & of course the fatigue. I would hate to get the virus then. I can only hope the second one won't be as bad. Normal flu shot in a fortnight. Sux being old!
  18. Hey @lynxster4! Happy birthday! May all your wishes come true on this special day 🎂 💝 🎁
  19. Happy birthday Sasha! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

  21. Congratulations @Pixey @lynxster4 @DrewDale and @Ladybug! There sure were great entries & I must give a special mention to @Djisves for a clever entry. Thank you again for hosting @lynxster4 Well done to you all!
