I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

Piles to be sorted

(viewed 566 times)
Had to move all sorts of stuff fairly quickly to clear the cellar space for Bertha - she is sitting in the area that used to be my old coal cellar - also a large space neede to be created to take the sacks of pellets hence the piles of 'stuff' the second pile fills the space that used to be taken by the stone stairs to the cellar. To the right above that the door still opened! These piles have now been sorted :)

Bertha the pellet boiler

(viewed 660 times)
Was fitted in the second week of March. She is rather grand and works well although we will have to wait until next winter to really test her. She could be my only source of heating, but I of course have my stove on which I will now burn only wood, this now just heats the room and the hot water (Bertha heats water too if needed to)
