Good morning, world! Fire is nicely laid, and coffee cart is ready. Just watch out for cougars, be they real or imagined, 2 or 4 legged... Enjoy.

To the strains of the "Ride of the Valkyries" (or was that Freya)? Anyway, happy Woden'sday.Wednesday is derived from "Woden's day", "Woden" being one and same person as "Odin", chief among the Norse/Germanic deities (I have also seen it as "Wotan" in Wagner's operas). So, time for some flagons of mead and wild feasting!
Saw the dentist today for a much delayed annual checkup and regular cleaning. All is well. Discussed my gap with him and I have booked a consult with his dental surgeon partner about the feasibility of an implant (we can cover the cost, this is more about making sure it is actually a good idea health-wise).
Brunnhilde, Odin's daughter, was the Valkyrie (played by Tessa Thompson in the Thor movies, BTW). Freya was his wife. I was thinking the "Entrance into Valhalla" from Das Rheingold myself.To the strains of the "Ride of the Valkyries" (or was that Freya)? Anyway, happy Woden'sday.
The caffeine in tea and coffee affects me totally differently, and Wednesday, I unwittingly did something stupid. I haven't had two cups of coffee in a morning in years, except maybe the very odd time on weekends. Apparently, I can no longer tolerate that amount of coffee caffeine. I was as jumpy as a skinned cat all afternoon; it was horrible.Makes me think I should skip caffeine too.
Not half as odd as some of other goings on over there but, as I said, it may be the city. Which is still odd, since we've always only had city trees on my side of the street where there is a sidewalk. Not sure why that would change.@Mendalla - that's odd.
I usually have a glass with dinner when I'm on vac at an all-inclusive or in a place like Italy where wine is relatively cheap (I was paying less for my wine than for Little M's pop when we were in Milan).I have about a 1/3 of a glass of wine with dinner. just enough to have had wine, but, not much.
In my city, homeowners can request the city to plant trees on the front property. The City owns a longer distance from the centre of the street than most people imagine - up to the water shut off valve that is in the lawn. But I digress. Here the homeowner can choose from a limited selection of trees, and then just wait until their # comes up on the planting list - sometimes takes more than year. When we did it years ago, the city dropped off a stake that we were to place where we wanted the tree planted. I did - and no tree arrived in subsequent weeks but Halloween did. I didn't want kids to trip on the stake at night so I removed it. Of course before I put it back in the ground the city came to plant a tree - and finding no stake just put it where they thought it should go. Doh!!!Not half as odd as some of other goings on over there but, as I said, it may be the city.
