But wait... I just remember I already sent that fern pictures around. Anyway, I think I did. And that doesn\'t have to be right.

Pat, thanks for the Courthouse picture. It\'s a very nice building.

Liz, you are so right. I learned to talk Irish and Aussie together. And it is great to jump from your post here to Webbie\'s and to Pat\'s and to Mar\'s and Phillis\'. It\'s like a little journey each time. You must be excited before your flight to Sydney. To see your grandson Byron is a treasure, too. Will you stay there over Christmas? I\'m sure you will have a nice time.

I was several times in Prague but never saw that Kafka statue. So I googled that and saw it was just put up about six years ago... after my visits there. Something new to see on the next trip.

Pat, I took some photos of fern shoots with that little curl at the end in Ireland last year. But it was a huge fern and you can\'t really say it was a \'little curl\'. I\'ll have a look where they are stored. And as you said spores are actually no seeds.

I was in Monticello last evening after dark, and the County Courthouse looked so wonderful all lit up for Christmas that I took a few photos of it for you, but I don\'t know yet if they will be too dark to send around, I haven\'t put them on the computer yet so I can really see them.

I hope you are all having a nice weekend. I\'m off to start my dreaded Saturday chores. I don\'t like housework. Bummer for the third time.

Bye!

That\'s a nice shot of the fern on CAM 5 today, Mark Westlake. Pattern on pattern on pattern, right from Mother Nature. I think those little dots are called \"spores\", but I don\'t think they are actual seeds, Annette will know. My ferns spread from the roots, which are very strong and wiry, and make little shoots come up from them to form new plants, you can separate them off and plant them somewhere else. I love the line of those new shoots, an arc that has a little spiral curl on the end, it is one of the most beautiful shapes in nature, to me. It reminds me of that spiral curl carved on old Irish stonework which nobody knows the meaning of, but I think could be derived from a fern frond. That carving is not as graceful as a fern, but if you are carving stone, it must be hard to make it that pretty.

Mornin\'...

Rainy day here, will probably rain steadily all day, too, though it isn\'t really cold, probably about 60F. Bummer. I will have to find indoor things to do. I\'m leaning my back against the battery powered foot massager my daughter sent me from California, it works on backs, too. I still have a backache in the mornings from the wrestling bouts I had with the monkey grass. Bummer, again.

I got some Christmas shopping done yesterday, it looks like the year of the Snugglies, those blankets with arms and hoods to cuddle up in when it\'s chilly. Erin asked for one for Christmas, she loves to curl up to read on the sofa, and I ended up with one for each female in the family, and one for me as well.

Jack, so sorry about your leg! But at least we live in the age where they can try to fix things...hope this next one cures the problem. Liz, hope you have a good and safe trip to Sydney. Mar, you are just a party animal. I enjoyed your resume of activities. Clever!

Perth sounds like my kind of place: never snows! Today in the 50\'s, tomorrow in the 70\'s! Warm weather means we can finish the fence! Snows one week, spring the next. Annette, I\'m with you--no way am I ready for Christmas, but I am enjoying all the lights and decorations. Enjoy the weekend everyone. Be safe.

Geez, what word is that? \"prbably\"... hard to speak I guess.

And of course, Kafka was born in Prague.

Mar, enjoy your party.

That\'s really an interesting sculpture on the Cam today. He was born in Prague. That\'s why they prbably put that sculpture up.

Phillis, we also use that word \"kafkaesk\" in German. Nice to know it\'s the same in English. AND don\'t hesitate to ask all your questions. There\'s always someone who can answer it.

I can\'t really sum up all the things that I learned here on this GB over the years. It\'s a real treasure to me and I never want to miss it. I learned many new English words and sayings, I learned about geography, temperatures, landscapes in other countries, about art and architecture, about traditions and specialities in other countries, we changed recipes and pictures and and and... And even though I not always agree in the opinion of everyone here I learned to accept other points of view. And I thank all my GB-friends for that.

Hello everyone! I keep being busy busy busy, tonight I go to a huge dinner and party with the work colleagues, 40 people from my office all together eating and dancing! I hope I\'ll have fun, we\'ll see. Now I\'m going to sleep a quick and short nap (to be fresh in the evening) and then to get pretty and charming, or I\'ll try to do it, we\'ll see... I hope you\'re all ok and enjoying, I\'ll talk to you all this weekend. Take care and have all the fun you can, a huge kiss for you all!

(the resume of the coming hours for me...)

Jeez, another week\'s shot by, and we\'re another week closer to Christmas. I\'m not ready.

If any of you ARE ready, please don\'t mention it. I don\'t want to have to come there and tear your arms and legs off.

I\'m going shopping today, I think.

Bye.

I always read Micilin\'s Observer on Friday to keep up with the news-of-the-week in his area. I saw that piece,(maybe you wrote it, Micilin), about the Trust organization to find homes for elderly horses, since people can\'t afford to keep them in the current economic situation and the only alternative would be to put down an old and faihful servant before it\'s time, which is a shame.

We have that situation here as well, but no organization to coordinate that good work (that I know of, at least). That\'s how the donkey population in my neighborhood grew from a single Yonkey the Donkey to the 5 we have now. People are looking for a softhearted person to take their currently unaffordable high upkeep pets in, and my good neighbor is known for collecting strays. She\'s very nice.

I enjoyed seeing that Kafkaesque statue, too, Phillis. A little nightmarish and unexplainable, but that\'s the idea. Actually I don\'t really like it, it\'s unsettling, but it\'s very good work, to put something like that in the physical context of a piece of sculpture and have it clearly and immediately read as intended. It\'s being located in Prague helps, I think, and you would have to know it is entitled Kafka, or it really would make no sense.

Thanks, Mr. O\'Muiri. That is one of the most interesting CAM 5s we\'ve had.

Which reminds me that I now know what Micilin meant by \"swede\", I googled it. Rutabegas are called that, and that makes sense for a \"mash\", doesn\'t it?

And it is NOT a Swedish person, as Webbie is trying to make us believe, I knew that because I was married to one of them once, and that would be a \"Swede\" with a capital letter. Annette, Webbie has just discovered large, bolded fonts, and is practicing using them. That\'s all that large \"Erica\" means. He\'s just trying to make all his GB girlers jealous.

Mornin\'...

Jack 2, Good Luck on that second medical procedure. Sorry the first time didn\'t work.

Phillis, it is good to be curious and ask questions. We all know those people who haven\'t learned a new thing since they were 20 years old, never had to change their thinking about anything, and to me, that is sad, so boring. There\'s a world of interesting things to know out there, and our lives are enriched by asking and learning something new.

I feel sorry for all you people in the Northern Hemisphere,while you are freezing with your winter here in Pert Saturday is going to be 37 Celsius(98.6 Fahrenheit) and Sunday is going to be 39+Celsius (100.4 Fahrenheit) as you can see it is our summertime. It NEVER snows in Perth.

I have got to go back to the hospital as what they did didn\'t work (better luck next time)that is why I was in a lot of pain.

The statue on Cam5 is a clear definition of what is meant by \"Kafkaesque\", a phrase used in America for something surreal. I enjoyed seeing it.
