Default Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Apart from my garage being a sauna to ride my turbo bike, I'm enjoying the weather. However, as we're on the coast, we're getting a cool easterly which has meant it's been ok. Only at night is it a bit too warm, but as the last few years have been miserable and cold in June and July, I'll take the heat.

I nearly made myself ill after doing a session on my turbo trainer, but it's probably good conditioning for my trip to France in a couple of weeks

Definitely not complaining. I love the heat - give me more!

A few overnight showers would be good to freshen up the hedgerows though.

I was moaning about winter dragging on a couple of months ago. So now I've got what I wished for. (perhaps a bit more than I wished for)

Luckily as I was perusing the very nice hedge trimmers the showroom was air conditioned so I took my time. Fatal though as I now have a Stihl long reach battery job which has emptied my wallet somewhat but definitely belongs in the smile thread. Now if it would only cool down a bit I can go out and test it.


Oh we have, or close to and a 2 week fire on the nearby moors (it looks like mist until you remember) and one of the reservoirs is now pretty much empty.


Still just young enough to enjoy it

How did Paul Simon get to be 76 years old? "Bridge over Troubled Water" was only released yesterday...or so it seemed, but 1970 in reality.

I'm not religious but I always liked this line from a hymn: "Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all its sons away, they fly forgotten as a dream, dies at the opening day" (Isaac Watts)

I guess I'm feeling melancholy today (another grey day).

That's a lovely line Seeker. Maybe reflective rather than melancholic...

Yep, they are depressing places. I've just been referred for genetic testing. As I've mentioned on here, mum has dementia, but it's a rarer type called frontal temporal or Picks disease. Apparently it can be passed down via a combination of specific genes. If you have that combination you will definitely get the dementia. What's more it is usually early onset, from the age of 45. Mum didn't start to show symptoms until her late 60s buy I'm 47.

So I've decided to get tested. Some friends have said I'm brave or stupid. Opinions vary. But I'm no longer in a relationship, I have no children. I'd rather know if I'm going to need full time care. That way I can a) plan for the inevitable b) not worry too much about how my pension is performing and c) start doing my bucket list before the illness makes me swear at people in the street, overeat junk food, stop feeling any empathy for everyone else and start running around naked with no concept of preserving my dignity. All symptoms of this disease.

And before anyone says it, yes I know I already do a lot of those things, but this way I'd have a proper excuse!
