Morning all bit dull here just now but forecast good now off to work have a good day all Dove hope you enjoyed the show and your hangover is not to bad .
Morning Andy and all. Well it's rained already here, going to try to do something else today otherwise I'll be moping around the house feeling sorry for myself. I'm a bit like Monty, gardening keeps the blues away, I hate winter because there's so little gardening and I get so frustrated in the summer if it rains. There's still so much to do in the garden and the year is rushing by.........
Have just sent an e-mail to GW web adminstrators to do something about this kitchen spam, e.g. put a spam filter in. Whether it will do any good is in the stars, here's hoping!
Morning all. Well done Sue. Was wondering myself whether to do something similar when I saw that one just now. As Dove said yesterday it takes time and attention away from serious posters- many who are new- who should be getting answers to their queries.
Well done Charlie N.
Know what you mean Daisy. Cloudy here but dry. Hoping it stays that way. Annoying when you're not at work and you want to be outside and the rain prevents it.
Does it mean you're doing ...HW?
Morning all. 17C here but drizzling.
Will do something in garden today even if I get wet, need to be outside.
I think we should try and ignore kitchen things until moderator does something. I know it messes posts up for newbies, but I can just picture someone sitting there posting them and then laughing at how it winds us up.
Has been raining hard,but has just stopped although very overcast and stormy looking.does,t look like I will be able to do much outside today.
Sorry to have to do this ,but I might have to do HW
Well done Sue,hope the administation team will be able to help with the spammers,such a waste of everyones time,and spoiling our forum
KEF- the problem is - will they do anything? I know what you mean about spammers doing it for the hell of it but I'd hate it if it puts new people off using the forum when they need some help.
Perhaps Sue's email will have some effect. Perhaps we should all email - how did you do it Sue?
Were you needing a bit of rain KEF? Ground's getting dry here too. Unusual for this part of the world so I shouldn't complain!
Fairy, we do need some rain, I hadn't realised quite how dry the garden was until I pulled up some radishes and I was able to shake the soil off. I've been watering crops, or thought I had, and watering new & transplanted things.
What we need is the wand on the go, gentle rain each evening from midnight to 4am, was going to say 5am but Andy would get wet.
If nothing happens about spammers we'll have to have a rota, but I don't want 4am shift
Raining again,looks like it means business this time,hope it gets down to the roots as our ground has also been getting hard and dry.
Will join you in a protest to administrators if we think it will help Fairygirl.I wonder if they can totally block a website from the forum.

I'll make one.
Sorry to go on about spammers,but why are so many people viewing them? that is what they want.......Free publicity.
I'm off to work - starting to think I'm in an old Monty Python sketch today!!!
you know the one I mean....
Spam spam spam spam......
Have a good day all
Home work's ok Fairy.
Gilly that's what I wondered, maybe spammer looking at own posts.
What a sad life they may lead KEF,probably as sad as their kitchens
Morning all. Warm and dry right now but rain due soon. I know what you mean KEF when you say you will be out in the garden wet or not. If I have a plant to move, place, etc I have to,do it regardless of the weather.
Havent really checked the spam situation so far...so it may be bad.....but it don't really bother me too much. Agree though that the moderator should be able to stop it.
Made a bit of a bloomer in garden...got geranium Orion flowering.....looks superb....but forgot I also have verbena Rigida next to it that has decided to bloom too now. Colours so similar that they do nothing as companions. Knew this in the winter and meant to move Verbena. It's a question of exchanging it for an orange echinacea or orange helenium or even a deschampsia grass. Trouble is they are in their right places. Ha, ha, if that's all my problems will be today I'll be a happy guy! So many problems for people and I'm "worried" about such a trivial matter!
Never grown gaillardias .....people like them? Anyone recommend varieties?
Rain or shine have good day folks
Been out and emptied the moth trap, lots of Poplar Hawk moths today
After very hot day yesterday it is raining for which I am grateful as everthing is so dry. Who would hve thought that might be the case a few months ago.
yesterday as i ambled around "planning" I thought how odd; although some things are still about a month behind other plants seem actually to be ahead of time. Has anyone else noticed this.
All cannas and dahlias now out and some more of my worst chore [ staking ] done.
No high culture for me, off to see Bruce Springstein tonight. He is the OHs favourite having seen him about 20 times. My tastes fairly obvious from forum name.
Have fun everyone and as Verdun said, Seize the day in case its your last.
Everything is out of sync. Punkdoc. Things that don't usually flower together are doing so.
The catalpa, always late, isn't fully in leaf yet, not much chance of beans this year

Went to Home, scrolled right down to bottom of page, clicked on Contact Us, and hey presto, mail page comes up!
Interesting to look at the names of the posters, don't sound very European to me!!
How about emailing the spammers and telling the to f... off
