MyLot member, yanzalong @yanzalong, wrote recently about a dinner party put on for staff members and site workers as a thank-you for their ‘working spirit’. In addition, in almost three years there had never been an accident which...

Days-out with pupils rarely pass without something extraordinary happening. If the teacher is lucky, it's something funny or at least something one can laugh about in hindsight. Once I had a class of ~14 year-old-pupils, boys...

We all know that laughter is healthy. On MyLot, I'm always thankful when someone gives me my first laugh of the day. But I also have certain videos on YouTube I can always go to if I need a laugh. I just mentioned this in a...

Val My current go-to for laughter is our new little kitten, Charlie. It's like having laughter on tap

When we go out using the chain-saw or cleaning up rubbish, I always wear jeans and a long-sleeved shirt. This protects me a little from scratches and scrapes. Sometimes we will be loading branches onto the trailer then later...

Val My work clothes have now become my round the house clothes. And Kevin's old t-shirts make good nighties!

There was a time that Pencils where the most popular writing tool. But modern technology led to its decline. Nowadays I rarely see people using it anymore, come to think of it, the last time I remembered using one is when I...

Yay, the snow is almost all gone now. There is only a tiny bit left of it. It’s supposed to be in the high 30’s again today. I’m waiting for Spring to arrive. Hopefully, it will be here very soon.

My husband got his new schedule and it was quite a disappointment. He only has one day on the schedule. Now we will play the waiting game and pray that they can find him more work in another department. I know that we will be...

I love winter. When this one started, I was happy. We had many pleasant days of snow, and then it turned bad. Now, with the third ice warning in affect for tonight, I'm so depressed, I WANT SPRING. I surrender. If Mother...

A few days ago @Corbin5 wrote a post about dance hall girls being paid to dance with men in years gone by. These days there is a version of them on some cruise ships, but they are usually mature males. There are a lot of widowed...

I tripped and fell on some uneven pavement while I was out for a walk the other day, and my first thought was "I hope nobody saw that". No such luck, a man and woman seemed to materialize out of nowhere and were very concerned....

Val Yes, I'm inclined to feel foolish too. Maybe it's a getting older thing.

The next time you feel down and out about having a piece of your writing rejected just take a minute or two to read the image I have provided. Each and every person on this list has received a rejection letter concerning a piece...

Val That last sentence is really important. It's so important to keep on trying if yu believe in yourself and your work.

It has been said that in the kingdom of the blind those who rule are the one-eyed ones. But still they are blind in one eye. A case of the blind leading the blind is a very dangerous thing for both of them will fall...

I like having fun here. I am not serious about earning here. (That is no brainer actually..anybody can tell). But I was just driven into assessing how much I earn and wow... I found I earn enough for my locker rent at the...

Val These days I don't even earn enough for a cafe coffee a month! I just don't have the time needed to earn that much.

I've seen them around, spoke to them, had the wife in our condo, received a package addressed to him, answered their questions about our car, and chatted in the hallway for three years without knowing their names or forgetting...

I hope I am right when I say hissing. These two cats Lolly II, and the one that does not meow are busy hissing at each other. They have both arrived at the same time which is not the case every day. They arrive at different...

I can think of a few things I'd change in my life right now (less lower back pain; better vision, so I could play outfield in softball without glasses), but the one that led to this post is music. One thing I'd change is that...

I admit it. I am a mouse. I am not a speedster when I drive on ice. No thank you. The roads were sweet and clear this morning. This afternoon the skies turned ucky gray. Then I look out the window.... white. Snow. I...

Val I can be both bold or a mouse in different situations. I'm lucky I rarely have to drive on ice here.

When I visit someone's profile that I haven't visited for awhile, I tend to visit their most recent post first. Maybe it's because I'm lazy. I've noticed that when I hear from someone I haven't heard from in awhile, it's often...

Ting, ting, ting! My phone kept making that sound yesterday, the 18th of February from 6am to 11pm last night. Happy 14th was the greeting, a subtle way of reminding me of my age. I had dinner with 19 important people in my...
