Hi Jim not seen you around for many months, good news about your weight loss. How's your garden doing?


Don't think I'm very good at that OL. The girls brought me this sign back from their holidays.....

Think we have something in common Jim....


Orchid Lady even virtual can have a devastating effect.

Kef  Glad to be back with ya.

Garden improving slowly but surely as I'm trying to lose weight going to grow my own veg so any tips and suggestions would be welcomed.

My tip is.....don't take tips from me LOL!!  I'm still new to growing veg and have learnt lots this year but have a way to go.  This forum has helped me no end and I couldn't have done it without all the help and support and answers to silly questions 

Well done Jim. Keep up the good work, you'll get there eventually and feel better for it. Several years ago I lost 7stone. It took me 18 months to go from 18 stone to 11 stone.

Wow Pauline, that's fantastic.  I need to lose about 2, maybe a bit less now. It's so hard when I like food so much, but have upped the exercise 

Pauline 7 so many congrats to you  it helps others like you to help people like me who need a bit of encouragement  by reading your success.

I have now got to concentrate on exercise as that has been my downfall also avoid sweet treats.

I didn't go to any slimming clubs or follow any set diet. I just had black coffee and dry toast for breakfast, a plain salad brown roll(no butter) for lunch and a balanced meal no later than 6 O'clock in the evening. And NO nibbles between meals except celery or carrots. 

Salino's that time of year.....a touch of the 'silly season' about the place at the moment.... but I'm not naming names....

It's the full moon Salino.   I can feel it's effect and it's calling me  


..I'm not sure I've noticed any difference where you're concerned Verdun...

Well, I awoke with a beard and still have a shocked appearance 

But,  I like it 

So did i Verdun, quite normal for me tho

That's why I couldn't sleep last night......there was an article in the news last month that people,find it hated to sleep when it's a full moon 

It's still the best forum I've been on overall, we just need to rise above the rubbish 



No rubbish on my forum this morning OL.
i've done some ignoring and it all looks lovely


Hi David, yes, there are gaps in a few threads and whole threads have gone if they were started by the person you have ignored.

The latter has proved to be an advantage.





Not surprised to hear it's gone  David.

I won't be seeing the next one fortunately
