    Hello, Happy Saturday. What's the remotest, most isolated or most unusual place you've ever stayed? I was looking through some old photos recently and found a picture of a hotel I stayed at in South America. The hotel was in the middle of the Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia. I remember we drove all...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 16th of May.

    Hello, Happy Saturday. :wave3: Do you collect anything? How long have you been collecting? I collect tiny little Hello Kitty dolls. Wherever you go in Japan you can get these dolls dressed in a way that represents that area. They're tiny enough to attach to a key-ring, so my collection...

    Good morning. :wave3: I've been doing a lot of gardening lately, so I thought we'd have a garden related question. Do you have a favourite flower? Do you have much success growing them? What flowers do you plant around your house or in your window boxes? My garden is kind of wild looking, so...

    Lock Down Project

    I've been keeping myself occupied lately with a project so that I'm not tempted to go outside too often. I decided to rebuild the deck. Here's a picture of the house with the original deck. At first my plan was to clean off and repaint the deck, then fix the broken steps. When I took the steps...

    Good morning. ☀ What is the oldest item of clothing you own that you still wear? I'm wearing my gardening/painting clothes at the moment. I have on a light grey hooded sweatshirt that I borrowed from my sister 20 years ago and never gave back. I don't know how long she'd had it, long enough...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 19th of April.

    Hi everyone, how are you coping with the lock down? I'm trying to think of it as my own personal retreat, so I'm doing things like having a spa day and colouring my hair whenever I have too much time on my hands. Are you a bath or a shower person? Mornings or evenings? What kind of products do...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 28th of March

    Good morning. A question for all of us who are currently self isolating, social distancing or just plain hermiting. What are you looking forward to being able to do again when things get back to "normal"? I want to go to some galleries. I'm not much of a one for socialising, but I like going...

    Question Of The Day. Saturday 21st of March

    Hello. :wave3: It's a gorgeous spring day here. I've turned the heat off and opened all the windows to let some fresh air in. The breeze is stirring up dust bunnies that must have been hibernating all winter and is chasing them throughout the house. :hmmm: Do you spring clean? What needs to be...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 14th of March.

    Good morning. :hellocomputer: I thought I'd take a few ideas from other Lounge threads I've seen this week and combine them for today's question. Did you have a crush when you were younger that makes you cringe now? Who were considered the heart throbs of your younger years? Lots of people I...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 29th of February.

    Good morning. :wave3: Everyone seems to be talking about prepping recently. Whether they're worried about the fall out from Brexit, trying to avoid getting sick or just holed up for the winter in an area where there's a lot of heavy snow. If disaster struck how long could you survive on the...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 22nd of February.

    Good morning, I have just been checking through some documents and realised my passport expires this year. I'll have to get a new one, even though I'm not planning on going anywhere. I've heard the new passports for the UK are going to be blue, after Brexit is done. Have you got a passport...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 15th of February.

    Good morning. Which do you prefer, tea or coffee? I can't get through the morning without coffee, but I probably drink a lot more tea. I usually start with coffee, then have English Breakfast tea, then try to stick to herbal teas in the afternoon, so I don't get too jittery. I sometimes treat...

    Question Of The Day. Saturday 8th of February.

    Good morning. :sunshine: So, I was thinking about all those poor people on the Diamond Princess who aren't allowed to leave their cabins for two weeks. They must be so bored! Then I thought going on one of those cruises must be so boring anyway. Being on a big ship and just wandering around...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 1st of February

    Hello. We we're snowed in this week. We had two days of heavy snow and it got to about mid-thigh level, so no going outside for me for a couple of days. It happens every year, so I was well prepared. If you had all the essentials, food, fuel, and everything your cats needed, what else would...

    Hello. :wave3: What do you wear on your feet around the house? Do you prefer slippers, socks, bare feet or do you keep your shoes on? I like bare feet in the summer, but as we have hard wood floors it's too cold for that now. I used to wear slippers. However, I keep stepping outside onto our...
