TH recently heard a young man (about 22) sincerely saying that it's what's inside that counts.

More than trivially happy, in fact deeply thankful, that we live where the weather is not extreme.

Just had photos from Newfoundland, where some of our loved ones' houses have vanished under a mass of snow... Cannot post links but google Newfoundland snow emergency.

Praying they are safe , from this safe place . Lighting candles.

Watching the videos - I noticed how little snow is on the roofs (or rooves) of the houses. Is that a design thing to prevent snow accumulation or just bad insulation?

Did not see this on the videos I watched and just checked/ rooves well thickly covered.
Some of them are totally buried. Rooves invisible

May just be gravity? as they build to cope with the weather so insulation is automatic. Not like here!

Or maybe wind effect? That was quite a storm.

For various reasons I cant get my hair cut atm, so its at the almost too long but makes me look like a 'reasonably attractive aging human female'
So Im being a bit precious about it, esp as there is a person I want to look attractive for BUT not look like Im trying to look attractive.

A little confusing I know, but I like the teeny tiny butterflies that go with that.

Overhearding that I was having a hard time with something nb in my life(not the above) my friend's little boy who is proudly 5 years old.
who hates girls(smelly and stupid) gave me his colouring book as its reflective of our common star wars interest.

Yesterday I was using it to colour in and I found that he had coloured in the Princess Leia page in gorgeous pastel colours and stayed inside the lines, so I think he has found a 'girl' who isn't 'smelly and stupid'.

The particular th of this is...........he coloured in her kick ass gun a dark stand out brown. Smark kid recognising a powerful woman when he sees one.

Reading people talking about the taste of milk in plastic containers in the TA thread.

I'm TH remembering that I used to hate the taste of milk from those as a kid too. And even though my mam had five kids and a lot going on at the time, much bigger things to worry about, she used to buy me a separate carton for myself. Of course I was completely ungrateful at the time. But looking back, she was the best. TH.

I’ve had worse

My happy is the book I’m reading is so good that I’m trying to drag it out and prolong it, rather than my usual “one more chapter” that turns into five more chapters and me finishing the book overnight
