Why can't people return text messages/phone calls when they know you urgently need to sort something out......not garden related at all but needed to get it off my chest!!!

Slugs don't eat my Hostas (smirk, smirk) 'cos they are surrounded by pea shingle, which I don't think the slugs like that much.

Tracey... I agree with you soooo much; young chap designing my website has about 20 photos from my portfolio and didn't respond to either a text or email for a week

I was incandescent...had he emigrated to Tierra del Fuego? with all the evidence of the last 30 years of my work? I finally caught up with him...'Oh I didn't get your text (Oh right, and the dog ate your homework!) ...and I was away for the weekend...'

That's rubbish Artjak and slightly more serious than mine, but still frustrated! I'm trying to organise my sisters hen do, need to book train tickets before the price goes up, what is up with people!!

Who learned the colours of the rainbow by this rhyme ?

Richard of York, gave battle in vein.  

Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet.

Bring his bones back to Yorkshire & rest him in York Minster.  Better than in a damn car park.

There was a song...RED and YELLOW and PINK and GREEN, ORANGE AND PURPLE and BLUE. I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, you can sing a rainbow too.



Lily is that a rainbow?

Red, yellow, pink, green, orange, purple & blue

Know what you mean I think.


Soz I meant vain, not vein, maybe I was after blood  

 Kef............I don't think Leicester planned to just dump him back in the car park... ( think of the uncollected fees he must owe already without adding more ) ...........I think .they should leave him in the vicinity of Leicester tho...............that's where he has lain for ages......why move him now other than for "tourism" purposes.  If nothing else, it sets a precedent for various other ancient bodies when discovered and shuffling them around the country to appease various historians. 

As a matter of interest, how old do human remains have to be before we begin to treat them as "archaeological finds" rather than bodies to be treated as bodies (if you get my meaning ).  A lot of controversy over remains discovered and exhibited for us to examine and peer at.  I wonder where the line should be drawn ? 

Or we could just give them to Edd..............recent ones for composting and ancients for bonemeal........


Philippa I know his remains won't go back into a car park

I don't think it's a tourist thing, doubt many would come just to see a slab or whatever. Just think if his relatives who have come forward would like him back in Yorkshire his bones should come back.

Why would Leic' want his bones ( since he's not in his final resting place any more) if we rule out tourism?

Blood, fish & royal bones

Why do the government have to change GCSE exams, which now means a 12 year old is choosing his options which determine his life, just so he can get enough study in to be able to pass Feeling sorry for myself because my little man suddenly has to grow up up so fast and it's not fair

Tracey hugs, not something I've encountered but must be so worrying.

Think when I was a  school we had to decide what subjects to study for GCE qualifications when we were 3rd yrs, so were 13/14 yrs old. Did 2 yrs study prior to final exams, no class work considered, just down to the day. Suited me but some had exam nerves so results didn't reflect their ability.

Orchid Lady

That's more or less what it is going back to now KEF in the main subjects, not good for my little man as he is already nervous with exams and is much better with coursework, but we'll see.  They do get lots of practice at school so fingers crossed.

Kef, lol not sure, just remember the song


Orchid Lady

WUMs are the scum of the earth!!!!! Sorry but I needed to say it 


star gaze lily

Unfortunately,  Tracey, I think its the same one back again. Just a bully.

Orchid Lady

I would actually say a coward Lily, these people hide behind their keyboards in a faceless society to carry out their bullying, but if we saw them in public they probably wouldn't say anything that they are prepared to say on here......


I've reported it to the mods as a personal attack on Mike. I personally think that's the best way to deal with them. The mods look and they make a decision. 

Orchid Lady

It actually doesn't neither me directly, I couldn't give a stuff about their silly games.  It's the way they are targeting certain people that bothers me....anyway, not saying anything else on the matter and if it happens again I will report too.  

Happy Weekend everyone and hopefully a sunny one 


That's the way to go Tracey, report then ignore button. Don't let him know you've even noticed
