We get the best strawberries around February. Got lots of strawberry farms around here. Florida strawberries are very sweet and taste good, but you just can't get "real" cream here :(.
Still, I will be starting Chemo on Monday, so I doubt I will have much appetite for cream anyway. LOL

Mr A, I live on the West Coast, not far from Clearwater Beach. Daytona Beach, on the East Coast, is indeed worth a visit, and you can still drive all along the beach. I would also certainly recommend a visit to St. Augustine - the oldest city in Florida. I look forward to you popping in for a coffee...

Hi everyone, sorry about not posting in a while, but what with doctors' visits etc. I just haven't had time. Still don't know what treatment I will have to have, as they are still doing tests to decide whether I would benefit from chemo or not. Alberto wasn't too much of a problem for us. It was mai...

Well, you are all making me very jealous with your holiday plans, but I wish you all a great time. Get some well-deserved R +R. Had some less positive news today. I may have to have chemo after all. Won't know for definite though until I see medical oncologist - so it might be a bit longer than anti...

I will make every effort to be there next time too. I hope to be able to come home sometime later in the year, after I finish all of my treatments.

Well, it looks like you all had a good time. So sorry I couldn't be there. But, maybe I'll manage to make the next board meeting. Operation went well. Got more good news too - lymph nodes were cancer-free, so I probably won't have to have chemo - more than likely just 6 weeks of daily radiation. So ...

Yes, it was St. Cuthberts and it did burn down. I used to go there as a kid.

Thank you all for your good wishes. I am a tough old bird (I am a Sanddancer after all) and I don't give in easily. Actually, in a way, I am thankful that I live here and not still in England or Germany. Here, they do routine yearly mammograms from age 40 on. In England and Germany, they don't start...

Well, I'm afraid I am not going to be able to attend the board meeting after all. Unfortunately, I have had to cancel my trip home, because I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer :( So, instead of coming home to Shields, I will be undergoing surgery, followed by radiation and possibly chemoth...

Unfortunately, Mr. A, they can't predict that far ahead. They know approx. 5 days ahead of time, roughly what direction a hurricane will take, but even then, they are not always 100% accurate. But, as I have said before, don't worry, I'm sure you will be fine. And if you have the misfortune to exper...

I've used both AVG and Avast in the past and was happy with them on the whole. However, when we wanted to install one or the other of them on my new computer, we found that the free versions were no longer available! I don't know whether this applies just to the USA. Anyway, I now have Avira Antivir...

Hey, I will be in the Marsden area. You could come with me Delilah. I don't have a car, but we could get the bus down and a taxi back - or maybe my Dad will take us and pick us up.

Well, the meteorologists were telling us today, what to expect this hurricane season. It will apparently be very active again this year. Reason: Extremely warm water temperatures in the Atlantic. Today, however, they actually said that these warmer water temperatures are a normal, cyclic occurence, ...

Don't worry Lisa, you'll get used to it after a while if you are planning on flying back and forth to the USA. Not exactly pleasant to spend 9 hours in a plane all cramped up (wish I could afford to fly first class), but like most everything else, it becomes routine after you've done it a few times.
