I recieve many memos etc from the various establishments. Most of a scientific nature. These usually includ new information on crops, earth sciences etc. I have today rec'd info of even more pestilenses affecting out trees. Might I ask the mebership. Would any of you be interested in me passing on to you, the general bits and bobs.

I'd be interested in learning new information

06/08/2014 at 09:21
Me too

Sounds good

I'm sure I'd find at least some of it very interesting - we live in the centre of the area being badly affected by Ash Dieback, and have two large ash trees in our garden which we're very fond of, so any information on that in particular would be interesting.

We have it here in the midlands too, very sad

  • Provided it was pertinent, concise, not more than two paras nor  more than two years out of date, it could be worthy of consideration.

Mike just get on and do it, you don't need posters permission, you'll soon know if posters are interested as it will promote discussion, if it doesn't lets not have an inquest into why no one posted on the thread or why they did .

The young Ash I have in my garden was quite badly affected by die-back in 2012/13. However this year there is not a sign of it,the tree has never looked healthier

The Swansong of ancient Greek literature maybe?

PS liked the poetical stuff very much.

Hopefully not pansyface. And thank you for your very kind comment 

I'm hoping the Ash will continue rallying against this nasty disease. Let's hope enough trees can develop a resistance to it. In fact nature is rarely responsible for a species to be entirely wiped out. Some colonies of rabbits developed immunity to myxomatosis when us humans introduced this awful disease.So here's hoping for a similar outcome with the ash tree.

Besides,I know a very poor taste joke about myxomatosis which I'm not going to repeat here 

07/08/2014 at 19:04

Oh go on. I love a joke in poor taste.

07/08/2014 at 19:10

If you don't want to tell it here, what about a new thread

We did have a jokes thread. Can't remember what it was called though so won't be able to find it.

How about a new one called  'Poor Taste'?

I like jokes but I can't remember them

07/08/2014 at 19:29

I just posted a Chicken joke on Hello Forkers but it was in good taste

I agree with Nutcutlet......a new joke thread would be fun........each one could always have a warning similar to those we see plastered over everything these days.......or could carry a rating........X......XXX........Really Bad, etc

07/08/2014 at 20:58

OK I relent.

I was walking past a rabbit warren the other day when I saw a rabbit on the grass,shuffling his feet together.

I said 'what are you doing Mr Rabbit?'

He said.......





I'm mixing my toesies 

07/08/2014 at 20:59

 really bad

07/08/2014 at 21:13

It may be offensive to rabbit lovers? 

07/08/2014 at 21:43

Oh dear Fishy......LOL!!!  I do love rabbits, but I'll let you off because I like you too and don't think you would want to offend anyone 

07/08/2014 at 22:04
How things deviate!

OK a Joke.

A chap asks his wife. What would you like for your birthday.

Oh! Something shiny and fast. Nought to 160 in two seconds.

So he handed her a set of bathroom scales.

That's when the fight started.
