    Heat.

    I'm sorry but I really felt this was deserving of a thread,


    so you could all see how hot it is today ( has been today )



    My candles melted.
    I couldn't resist taking a photo of them.

    "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
    Of cabbages--and kings--
    And why the sea is boiling hot--
    And whether pigs have wings."

    love is like a flower; it needs warmth and light as well as some space and care in order to grow. if you take care of it it grows and blossoms and you can taste its scent and touch its velvet surface and look at its bright colours. if you don't, it dies. and of course a flower has no meaning either if you don't give it to someone or have it growing next to another one. flowers are delicate. and so is love.

    It's odd looking at that pic when it was as low as -3 degrees Fahrenheit here just two days go.

    Hahaha

    Wow those are some funky looking candles.
    I'd be quite happy with that.

    It must be scorching... I'm freezing my bits off over here.

    What the?!


    That's why I live here.

    No heat.

    No cold.

    Hardly ever, I mean.

    You people are nuts for living in places where it gets to be 100 degrees or where it snows...what is wrong with you? Most of the time here it just feels like...air. Not hot or cold. Although it has been a bit rainy recently and I like it. I like it when it's a bit cold.

    It's either hotter than usual,

    or

    they're using different material to make candles, that are less resistant to heat. Once they've been changing materials on everything, for ecological reasons, maybe it is possible.

    And it gives an eve[n] (psichological) impression that you're under greater heat, when it might not be so ... Do you have a thermometre at home? This might help you find out the truth about the matter.

    I ... have to admit that I thought it was your imagination, and I was about to say "all right, Jean ... we all know women speak more than usual ..." When I saw your candles, though ...

    So, sorry for the prejudice. Even so, I should say that you aren't (among women) one who speaks less. Which isn't necessarily a bad characteristic.

    (What would be of men if women did no talking at all?!! World would never be the same.)

    -- I'm sorry if this sounds offensive to any member. It isn't meant to, so, please don't take it as so.

    It was around 46 degrees. I dunno what that is in Fahrenheit. But i'm thinking it's past 100.

    Please send some of that heat my way. Until today we were frozen over.
