... to all our friends and readers, and especially to those who found their way to the "donate" button through the year. I didn't realise we had so many fans working for "Big Oil" but, through their generosity, Mrs EUReferendum has kept the bath well-filled with coal. What's more, we've even had a few tripe butties and the odd crisp and salad cream teacake.

'Appen, today's official forecast is for fine weather, so she can tek a break from shovellin' t'snow off backyard. Once she's broken ice int' wash tub, and tekken in the washing, she'll 'ave plenty of time to polish the doormat and shampoo t'whippets. Then she can roast the squirrel fer Christmas dinner, fer when her old man gets back from pub. It's shaping up to be a reet grand day.

Tee-hee! Eeeeh by agw, I love it! (Sounds better than "Eeeeeh by gum!" More modern, like, ya knaa wot Aa meen?) Me brutha married a Yorkshire lass and they really do still have a coal fire. Muck, brass, etc.

Anyhoo, from somebody from North of the Tyne I repeat my good wishes of yesterday and hope there are indeed better times ahead for voices like yours.

May your shadow grow longer.

Yeah, well it's not helped by Mrs EUReferendum filling the bath with coal either. I really don't know why she does it. We've got gas central heating!

Wrong side of the Wash?

I'll have to take exception to that lad! :lol:

Nice Robin, I miss the bird song, too bloody cold for the little bu**ers at mo', that was the strange thing when we had global warming, hearing the blackbirds singing spring mating calls in December.
The frost is sharp, I have (in some ways missed the cold - though not all the time) been watching the sunsets, they have been and are spectacular, could be the particulates in the atmosphere from volcanic activity around the globe, all adds to cooling but sunsets are a compensation. Winter makes you appreciate spring, I'll be up at the crack tomorrow, to enjoy the silence and the frost before off to give thanks.

Merry Christmas, Dr North and to one and all on this blog. PDT_Armataz_01_34

Is the purposse of this post to contrapoise the poor liddle birdie, confused by the messages of "Come North, Liddle Birdie, it is warner now" with North's laughter of Northern Warming?

And a Merry Christmas from Florida, which is a bit "less than sunny" this weekend! We're catching the edge of the cold front that is hitting Georgia this weekend, which means that we'll have some of that, "If you don't like the weather, wait ten minutes" crap. Yesterday, the temp was in the high 70s F, today it was in the low 40s. Tomorrow? We'll see. PDT_Armataz_01_05

LOVE the bird photo! Who is Emma? Great photography! PDT_Armataz_01_36 PDT_Armataz_01_37
