ping

Me too, maybe it's my age but I don't understand the 'ping' thing. Can anyone enlighten?

It's the kitchen spam problem John. If we just bump up a topic by just puttting a post on it -or just a word- the spam gets pushed down the page and the genuine topics stay up. 

Hope that makes sense!

It is just to put the thread back to the top John

You should use a different gardening related word each time, but one letter on alphabetically. 

I don't know why.

My Mam had a load of Goldfish and Koi that were eaten by the local Heron. She was quite upset but when she saw the Heron. She took pity on it as "it looked so thin" she said.

The next day she got a load of Mackeral from the fishmongers and laid them on the lawn to feed the Heron. Needless to say the Heron ignored them but we were frequented by lots of Gulls for quite some time!

Keyser....

Buggers aren't they!

They are but would swap all our Magpies for Herons any day!

Glad John asked about the "ping" thing.  I didn't know that either.    Will do that myself then.

Hate to say this but it's the girls who seem to cotton on to these things whilst us blokes plod on indifferently.  However, we are more cleverererer...........!

Daft things I do?  I only sprayed a dahlia in a pot with strong insecticide last week .....I over concentrated it and poured it over the dahlia.  Knew it made no sense at the time.....it was meant to control bug worm in geraniums......but still did it.  Dahlia now looks dead...it's not. It will recover.  But wot a silly billy I am at times.  Ironically, I'm replaciNg with soap sprays so won't do that again.

Keyser I was talking about the gulls!!

I love herons. The day after we bought three new  koi for the small pond at last house three herons flew overhead. They must have thought -'that's handy , one each for tea'! Neeedless to say we got the net on very quickly! They're beautiful birds - apart from when flying - they look a bit daft then. Pterodactyls  

No Verd- we're more cleverererer than you - definitely...and better edjukated.

Children..really ..behave.

I've just had a mad moment. Inspecting runner beans and saw a lily beetle, not that I'm constantly looking for them. Oops not a lily but a bean flower. Lily beetle on beans  I will get my coat.

sorry i confused some of you, in the old days when i were a lass and we used the bbc forum pinging was commonplace 

29/06/2013 at 18:33

That's where I discovered what it meant litttle-ann.  Thought everyone had gone mad with their 'pings' and 'bumps'.
