And it's Thursday...

Greetings, Earthlings! Not much to report; i must go up and collect my pills. i've been waiting for the Pension Credit review phone call and bang on time, around 2.30pm it came in. No, no other income but State Pension [which would be less than the minimum allowed without Pension Credits, due to working overseas for a long time]; no, i don't own any property [i live in a Council flat] - no investments or any money of any kind coming in [except DLA, which they know about and is a benefit not income] and no, i won't be doing any paid work in the future. Check what the balance in my current Bank and savings accounts was on my birthday 15th December last year and that was it. Upshot: my entitlement to Pension credits should/will not change - just as well, as the letter telling me what i will receive this coming financial year, arrived last week. Thank you's all round, 'bye.

i will be doing some volunteer reading through/for the Library in their latest Reading Aloud project, if all goes well and i'm interested in the CATCH project as i'm the Patient Representative for my local Doctors' surgery as there's a new interactive [so-called] programme between the NHS/Government/doctors' surgeries/patients. This is supposed to make sure we get the required amount of care and funding. Just how involved i get in the latter has yet to be determined.

A few interesting pictures, as always.. Lioness rescuing her cub, some animal inspired Chinese art and some truly amazing street art

Still a bit cool, inspite of some drier and indeed, occasionally sunny spells. We have had a bit of rain but mostly overnight, so we shall have to see what transpires towards the weekend. Stay warm and take care

We've had so much snow lately, it is really a bitch (wrecking my back shoveling & trying to keep the car cleared off). We are supposed to get warmer temps & rain this weekend, so I'm hoping the snow will all be gone soon (knock on wood). I really need Spring to come soon (a snow storm in April is actually normal in Iowa, our planting season starts in June).

I love the photos you post, they are all so beautiful and interesting!
