radellaf: I'll take any excuse to light candles or eat pastries. Chinese Moon Festival cakes are especially tasty. Apr 19, 2021 21:16:13 GMT
ole: I light a candle for every meal, even breakfast. It makes it more special. However, I'm very much in favor of pastries and will eat them even if there are no candles. :) Apr 20, 2021 22:29:00 GMT
mistero: : I am not sure if candles makes part of the ramadan ?? I don't celebrate it, and my neighbors seem to simply turn on the light, from what my mother told me (they have shared Christmas and Ramadan meals before I was born). Apr 21, 2021 14:48:14 GMT
mistero: (rofl) but I take one pastry per breakfast. After all, Ramadan happen once in a year, so I shall enjoy it my way too. Apr 21, 2021 14:49:17 GMT
radellaf: There's a Ramadan lantern. I like that part. The fasting? Won't do that for even my own Jewish heritage. Tried dieting like that but, really, 12 hours is not what I'd call a "fast". That's a "short" Apr 23, 2021 22:44:08 GMT
eefa: Lemon meringue cake day tomorrow!! May 3, 2021 18:21:08 GMT
ole: Huge fire next door. Sky high flames. Fire trucks (4) leaving now. Luckily the wind was going away from me so my buildings are OK, but downwind had lots of damage. This is the 3rd fire in recent years next door, so I'm getting used to it. :) May 4, 2021 23:07:36 GMT
davidv: 3rd FIRE!!! May 5, 2021 3:33:13 GMT
ole: Yes the 3rd. Though to be fair this is a new owner. The problem is that people think there are no rules when the move to the country. May 5, 2021 15:25:07 GMT
Catida: Oh wow, I'm glad to hear your home is safe, ole! May 5, 2021 16:51:58 GMT
Catida: I just read in the news that a guy who has so far lit up at least 44 arsons around here (one of which was nextdoor to my workplace), has finally been sentenced to involuntary treatment. May 5, 2021 16:56:38 GMT
ole: I decided to bring my old local news site back to life so I could post about the fire. coco.coalmont.net/ May 8, 2021 1:53:04 GMT
radellaf: "burn barrel which, while not being watched for a short while, set the dry grass on fire" a neighbor nearly set my house on fire that way. 1" of dry grass can go up really quickly. Dunno if it would have ignited the metal mobile home tho. May 9, 2021 17:42:04 GMT
ole: so you know how scary it can be. Metal mobile homes burn too though as you can see by an earlier story of mine. May 10, 2021 1:11:44 GMT
ole: Also, when I wrote "not being watched for a short while" I was being careful. The fact is he just left it until reminded by the fire department showing up. May 10, 2021 1:12:23 GMT
radellaf: It was scary. Grass was a thin layer so I think it would have burned out before igniting the trailer. There were chickens + dog in the yard that would not have been happy. May 10, 2021 19:04:55 GMT
radellaf: Fire truck did show up but the road was so muddy and uneven they had a hard time getting there, even though you can see the fire house from the porch of that trailer. May 10, 2021 19:05:27 GMT
Steph Walford: Hey all hope you are well out there? May 12, 2021 18:51:27 GMT

Steph Walford: WOOHOO nice one you going away? May 14, 2021 20:24:51 GMT
