Another game in which we need to give a hats off to the keeper. Two brilliant saves for England's Jordan Pickford.
Here is one of them

Thanks Venus...I will! I have an app on my phone from my work and health care insurance provider that lets me earn gift cards. I get $75 for getting my health screening done on Monday and I may just pick a card where I can buy these.

Great post MantaLady! It sounds like real progress to me.

Well done England, the two sides played too similar a game for it to be a classic. Russia or Croatia in Moscow in the Semi-finals. I really hope it's Russia.

sounds like you need a Lepidopterist - that's a moth collector, not a leopard collector.

or did you want me to mansplain how to hit a moth with a newspaper?

Slash just posted this pic on Instagram with the caption "Woo-Hoo!!" (I guess I'll be cheering for England ~ oh yeah I think that's where he was born so that makes sense! )

I don't want to kill it.

I did the low-tech thing and opened the doors and turned off the lights. He did what moths do.

I just did that with a buzzy fly ten minutes ago. I have a clear plastic cup and cardboard right here ~~~~>>>>

For just that.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I also have bug spray because vaulted ceilings, no screens, big spiders, and a desire for sleep. I also have a cat who likes to kill and eat the crawly things.

I'm probably not the right person to ask. I took advantage of the match by going to the supermarket - it was deserted!

Hi Snuf! I love that word...knackered. Had an awesome walk in the weather that has finally cooled to enjoyable 80s. Now onto second match Russia VS Croatia.
I know the Russians would love to have their host team in, but I am cheering for Croatia for my friend Silvie and her family.
