    Just a statement to smile at...is it the same?

    It is the same if you view it to be. Therefore, it is the same for me. Presumably, from what you have written, it is not the same for you.

    Crowan, your like the man with the golden arm...a bit confusing but delightfully interesting?

    This is an appropriate thread to share that although Crowan and I can hotly debate issues, we largely share the same values and I admire and respect her knowledge on current environmental matters e.g. her recent post disclosing how solar panels are made (although I don't totally buy into the hypothetical predictions!)

    Thank you, Amy. And, although I would say that the 'predictions' are based on the science and are not hypothetical (and are shared by increasing numbers of climatologists), I would also say that the respect is mutual.

    Certainly, Healthy Pages is the only forum I have been on that doesn't descend into abuse as soon as there is disagreement.

    Sorry, Zandalee - I'm sure this is clever and pertinent, but it's gone right over my head. My only understanding of the man with the golden arm is as the title of a 1950s film in which Frank Sinatra played a heroin addict (and was so keen to do so that he agreed to audition for the part). I'm afraid you're going to have to explain.:confused:

    Well, I'm glad. Not really anything else I can add.

    OK - I am also a gardener (naturalistic) as is Crowan - a more established one. Crowan is a she! (Others have made the same mistake).
    I can't say I have really noticed her wit though! *quickly retaliates....[​IMG]

    My goodness...I adore my mistakes. They all have a learning lesson behind them. You can trust the complexity of life and the imperfections. Have a wonderful night.

    Ahhh. I grew up on an island (Singapore) and though we lived inland, we used to see the sea (and swim in it) at least once a week. I missed it so much when I moved to London. It's always been my dream to live beside the sea, but I never thought it would happen and then in 2015 I was able to buy a flat overlooking the English Channel, which is now a holiday business, but we get down when it's vacant. Wonderful to lie in bed at night and hear that surf pulling back on the pebbles (thankfully there is sand to walk on at low tide) and I wouldn't say the English Channel was blue, but it is sometimes! I have to pinch myself every day for such a blessing. :p
