GG I've heard it all Years back went to fat club, then straight into the Wimpy and then the pub. Wasn't anything else in our High Street at the time. Owners must have loved Tuesday nights. Person who ran fat club did say to us on one occasion that it was a fat club, not a chat club. It's surprising the things you get to talk about other than your weight.
This one is not any particular organisation - just a group of friends supporting one another. I'm related to most of them! So there's no pressure. I have lost a bit of weight, but I cheat like mad, and so do the others!
Verdun- restaurant...you are naughty!!!
My computer slow too. Relieved to hear you all say that as I was thinking it was my new laptop...there was a lot of sweary words...
I had a friend who went to a sewing bee but they didn't do a lot of sewing there either! I'm sure a lot of cake was eaten
Glad I've just read your post Fairygirl. Was about to remonstrate with son about the new provider. Never had a problem all the years I was with AOL. Will hold of until tomorrow.
The computer slow as well - may be forum.
Verdum thanks for that seeds will be sown some when - sure my plastic green house will be getting full then.
was raining a bit today but still went out later stop raining finished digging front garden tryed to level the dirt hard that - then I used Nemaslug to make it safer for more planting try stop them eating any plants I will buy.
Maybe they are releasing the new gremlin free version ??
Ever the wishful thinker
No gardening today, had to work in local community shop where i am a volunteer. Sorting out year end wages, tax etc...nightmare and not finished yet. Home to cook invention test dinner which was worth 6/10, and a portion for tomorrow. Hopefully not many calories as mostly vegetables and a chicken breast ( no skin...shame).
Have just heard the amazing news that the weather may well get much, much better. It will be interesting to hear all your views on how madly the gardens grow when given a few degrees of help.
Talking of degrees I heard the lovely idea the other day that as you get older you can express your age in centigrade. I am only 19....again. what about you??
Well it is raining like made a minute so not sure it will get much warmer yet
in cenigrade you say well do you double it and add 28
Good Evening All forkers .......... what you all been up to today then ?

Forum is slow tonight. Wonder if Daniel knows about it.....come in mr Brumbull, your department I think.
All , i have put a response from Daniel on the Morning Forkers thread regarding the tech probs we have been having
Evening. Chopped all the shrubs in front garden and finished cutting back the Passion Flower in back. Takes just as long to clear up doesn't it.
Fished a dead frog from the pond and then spied another. Fished that out too only to find it was two frogs having a good time! Gently put them back again. That's about it. Good day though,
The sun came out, I've been gardening and the first of the seeds I sowed 3 days ago are up. Some mixed agastaches
All's right with the world
Hmm must have been very upstanding English frogs if you thought they were dead
Apart from harranging the customer service depts of german retailers about watering thier plants not done very much today. Been wet and a tad cold and keep nodding off. yesterday I decided to use plastic mushroom type boxes in my propagator to allow water to soak up the pots and moisten the compost from below. The reward today is germinating chilli plants. The little plastic greenhouse i got with a free gateau turned out to be ideal for under a 10 pack of germinating snap dragons. Some of my verbina now has true leaves.
I know a lot of people use fine stone chippings for seed pots, would granite chippings be good for this?
Anybody growing this -: Euphorbia characias 'Silver Swan' ? any advice would be appreciated
WW, I'm 19,too! That's even better than the 27I usually admit to.
Lots more potting on done and visited elderly SIL in hospital. She's happy because she's coming out next week, despite all the porkies she told hospital staff to fool them into thinking that she could live on her own. She'll continue to live with her brother and get carers.
I'm disappointed to have discovered that you can't take hellebore cuttings and that dividing them does not work well, either. So its collect seed and plant it.
Blackest-I use lots of the containers we get fruit and meat in as seed trays or propagators. Some of the Easter eggs the girls got had really good high plastic cases as they had mugs as well as eggs in them and they've been put to good use already!
