I had a lump, until the skin and flesh totally dissolved and I had a raw hole I could have rested a golf ball in. I could see internal structures I couldn't bear to look at....and there were black edges!
I suspect a false widow bit me but that is only based on the symptoms, I never actually saw it. I'd be horrified to know what bit you.

That sounds nasty Maz.....

Snakes bothered me a bit. I met a rattlesnake in California, a big Brown Snake near Dubbo and a red-bellied black near Perth. I did a pic of the latter and was congratulated by a man for standing still as it passed. I didn't know the bugger was poisonous! So that's today's tip, stand still!

We were always taught to stand still and yell as loud as you can. ( snakes are deaf but rely on vibrations to detect where you are).
Trouble is, it is human nature to jump about when you see one!
I was unwinding the hose one day when I huge lizard fell out of the loops onto my foot. Frightened the life out of me! I couldn't stand still. I jumped about like a woman possessed!
I won't walk anywhere near the river near our home unless I have proper boots and socks on...

I never saw a wild snake in England so I tend to forget about them whilst I'm walking about here, a stupid thing to do, but every now and again I get a shock reminder. I treat them all as poisonous and avoid them. We get plenty of lizards here, Maz, and I like seeing them. I've found small ones inside the apartment several times. They get under the flyscreens. They're harmless and good for killing the mozzies.

In California schoolteachers who are in charge of a class where a child is bitten are instructed to catch the snake so the venom can be identified. Susi was a teacher and said that on the whole she would pass!
When I was at Dubbo I stayed with a family where the husband worked for a big mining company and his ute had a ship to shore radio. I went out to it one day to retrieve something I'd left in there and once I was inside and my eyes had got accustomed to the relative gloom I saw that there was a BIG Brown Snake coiled up on the hood. I got on to the ship to shore and called the house, he came on and told me not to mess with the radio but when I explained why he came out with his shotgun and blew its head off. He knew there was one about and had been after it for a while.
If you have a cock-up in the shed or sewing room, don't get angry, keep calm and get even by doing it again but right this time!

One thing I have missed on this version of the site is the fact that we lost an easy way of acknowledging a post without necessarily replying. I don't know whether Ian has modified the list but he used this one :good: and I don't think I have seen it before. I shall be using it in future!

If you are feeling the cold, put a Damart vest on. Like having a warm hug all day!

The thumbs up icon is all very well but the face behind it looks a bit on the sad side! Also it reminds me of hearing recently about the man years ago who complained that he saw a penis during a theatre production but the judge defended the producers and said it was probably the actor holding his thumb up in that position!

Lighten up Tiz! I think it's a big improvement and a handy little thumb, whatever it looks like!
I was mashing spuds yesterday and justifying them to myself in a low carb diet. My attitude is take good advice about diet and enjoy the benefits but don't be afraid of experimenting with individual items to fine tune the regime to what suits you best. We all have different metabolisms. So that's today's tip!
