Can I ask two things, please?

1) How do you stay in here to watch the thread as it goes on?

2) Anyone got an olive shrub?

Hello Geoff! It is a change to be on when the chat is going on. It is usually late when I pop in.

I think it was last year's Christmas one--it ended with Matthew proposing. And thanks for no spoilers!

Here's wishing all forkers a happy, healthy New Year--along with better gardening weather!

Geoff - are you and your Kindle staying awake until midnight tonight?

Norm - it may take you a while to work out Geoff's thought processes but you'll soon get used to them

Who said it's possible to work out Geoff's thought processes? Norm, don't even go there  That way madness lies

I must admit to being lost on the sleeping one Flo, I had better luck with the advent calendar

I've have 2 olive trees (shrubs) all wrapped up like ghosts in GH at moment. What do you want to know.

I just click on latest posts  but there is probably an easier way never asked

Inkadog, I have been to Vancouver, Vancouver Island and an island off the latter. Are you on that one?

31/12/2012 at 17:46

Well Caz-that is the conundrum-I did post a sleepy head last night-but sometimes it is a bit fiddly-but as the sirens and fireworks might wake me up -I might just pop in-might be grouchy though

Sasha-not sure what you mean-it wont-update before your eyes-you have to go out and come back in again- so to speak

Tinkling, yes, olive tree although still like a shrub and in a big pot. At the moment it is sheltering in the outhouse but I wondered when it is the right time to prune it as it the branches (if you call them that on a shrub!) seem to be pretty long for the height of the tree

NYS, thanks ...shall do that then.

BTW the gremlins are about....for some reason I suddenly got a page about Radio Times just now .

I think have just done a daft thing . Had started to put all the OOD/old seeds into the kitchen compost bucket. Dawned on me that they wouldnt all be killed as my bin wont get hot enough. So fished out as many as could get & put into council food waste caddy instead.  Wonder if the wormery would like the bucket contents instead? I then add that compost, as an accelerator, to my bin no.1 to continue the proccess. Still I bet in 1-2 yrs from now I get all sorts popping up in strange places.

Need to shift myself now to do meal. J.

My olive shrub stays outside all winter and has done for years.

Thought you cooked all day yesterday Jo for the rest of the year

I have a really good link on Olive care , I found it hard to find anything about them. I'll look for it , back in a minute

31/12/2012 at 17:53

Sasha -what browser do you use-is it Firefox??

31/12/2012 at 17:58

Took a while to find it. Think I will have to ssave the link again

31/12/2012 at 18:01

Browser? No idea NYS! How do I find out?

Just made a huge sacrifice....had cooked some cheese straws to take as my contribution for a party tomorrow and guess what ....some broke up as I took them off the baking tray and well.....I just had to eat them 

31/12/2012 at 18:05

Tinkling, many thanks for that and amazingly I have even managed to save it ....phew

31/12/2012 at 18:06

The browser is where your e-mails, bookmarks,favourite sights are-it is usually either internert-explorer or firefox-  or it might be something similar

What happens when you switch on?

31/12/2012 at 18:08

NYS, errrr need to think....

I think it could be Internet Explorer ....sorry to be so dim

31/12/2012 at 18:09

Tinkling, many thanks for that and amazingly I have even managed to save it ....phew
