Hello everyone ,A wet and windy Sunday ,Maurice is working today so Ive been chilling here .Then decided to go up to the town centre,,so braving the elements,the drizzle and the wind,off I set ,Just got back right, its chucking it down now.,there was a fantastic array of breads,cheeses meats wines/cider,oils ,I enjoyed looking and wandering, I did buy some rather nice pate ,Ive just sampled  some on some crusty bread  Id  bought from Somerfield yesterday !! As you know I worked three days last week so Ive been playing catchup ,with jobs in doors and journal alerts to say nothing of recharging my  energy.We discovered on Thursday ,our phone was dead ,Maurice called BT  on his mobile, I cant get a signal on mine at home ,did all the checks when we unplugged the modem (from another socket not the phone one  )we found the phone was OK ,so its phone OR online at the minute ,not both ,I rang AOL,who suggest the modem might be at fault so ,sending me another meanwhile..................Are you still checking Dodgers progress at Woodgreen? they do an update each weekday ,on Fridays one you can see a pic of Kate with Kerrie ,Woodgreens manager and Dodger of course ,Kate tells me Dodger went over to Peterborough, to the Forward press offices ,and there were more pics taken ,so Im  looking forward to Mondays update,every one at the office to quote Kate were well up for meeting him ,and hes loving all the attention ,makes you wonder about his history,no one has claimed him and there has been alot of publicity HMMM?

Now before I go, its got to said ~~~Well done to all the vivi award winners.........Im new to journals so didnt qualify to be nominated so ,its not sour grapes !!!But there are some damn good brit journals, that are as good and often better than the winners ,and when you look at the work and time  effort and research some of our people put into their journals Well Im disapointed ............So there ,      you know who you are folks ,in my opinion your simply the best ,better than all the rest ,Ishall keep reading your excellent journals,    With love Jan xx

Morning Jan - It's raining here too, I nipped to the shop this morning it is 2 miles down the road - (nearest one to me)- the supermarket is about 9 miles away....thank god for cars....I would not want to get the bike out in this weather....I have not seen the awards list yet so will take a look at that later - but I do agree with you about the journals We read - they are great....Have a lovely Sunday....Ally

I agree Jan, maybe AOL could give recognition awards to the journals who have obviously put in a lot of effort. Wouldn't have to be a first place etc. just a list recognising peoples work. We have wind and rain here in sunny Brighton too!! I love Somerfields Rosemary bread, have you tried it? Yummy! Jeannette.  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels

Horrible day here as well Jan.  So dark it could be night, pouring with rain and very windy.  Those foods sound delicious and you have made me quite hungry. As for the awards, well that is the way the cookie crumbles as they say.  It seemed more of a popularity contest to me.  Sad that Sylvia did not get anywhere, she has so much trouble in her life, Sandra and Sara should have been there as well in my opinion. When you have been journalling for quite a while it is nice for it to be recognized but at the end of the day, it is voting that counts and maybe it is not journals that count but how popular you are.  This is not sour grapes but if people want to take it that way, let them.  I would have liked to have seen more Brit journals up in the awards.

I`ve just looked in at the shelter and seen the girls.  The appeal seems to be doing really well.  That food sounds lovely and I just love pate, the coarse type you know, spread on warm crusty bread....my mouth is starting to water now...lol!  I agree with you about the awards,  my nominees are the winners to my mind. :-)

I agree with you about the awards. It does look like some of them have a lot of followers and I guess I am partial to the journals I read. Sorry you all are having so much rain there. It is so dry here if a firebug were around a lot of the forest would be ruined. Helen

I'm sure Dodger will find himself a new home without too much bother, he is adoreable :o)  Your pate on crusty bread sounds adoreable too, lol!!
I was dissapointed not to see more people I know winning Vivi awards, we all want our favourites to win don't we ;o)
