It is salad days -ham salad would be lovely

Flo-this sounds about my level

I hate computers and stuff

Ham salad it will be.

Geoff have you broke it?

Still spasmodic-perhaps they do all the necessay work on a Sunday afternoon it is the connection that seems to be the problem and I have checked everything at my end of the pipe-must be a blockage upstream

You could put a tenner on Bradley Wiggins to be holding the yellow jersey on the Champs-Elysees in a fortnight's time...

But I won't gloat about it.

Just went out and anointed the garden with comfrey tea---it's very stinky outside, but it's supposed to rain later on, so hope that will take care of it. Are you excited about the Olympics yet--was a great party in Vancouver last time, but we are still paying for it. I watched on telly, crowds not my thing.

 

Gary Hobson

We've been excited for weeks, ever since Wimbledon. Hoping the weather holds, it will make such a difference for everyone. We'll all be watching on telly (those that like such things). Geoff (on here) watched the torch pass near his home - he posted a couple of pics on here, a few pages back. BBC will be streaming 24 channels, don't know when we'll get much time for gardening.

I did not put my tenner on, this was his lucky charm.

Gary Hobson

Thank you. Brad and the boys will be so grateful for your selfless action.

Neighbour decides grass needs cutting at 4.30-this will take at least the next 2 hours

Geoff you will need an i-pod, I can recommend The Pogues for lawnmower noise.

No TV needed I am off to visit in-laws. Will give lympics feedback.

sotongeoff

He has only cut the front after all-has all day to do this-never mind- (big sigh smiley)

sotongeoff
