Best sign I saw at the coast was "Eat a seagull keep the place clean".
Back in the seventies when those car stickers on rear windows were popular, I bought one for my BIL. It read : 'Preserve wildlife - pickle a squirrel'
He worked for the Nature Conservancy Council .....
How about the saying "smile it makes people wonder what you have been upto?"
Roll on the spring!
Very true Lily, how lovely to come on and not see all that 'rubbish'
Always loved that song Don't worry, be happy, do,do do, do, do,d,do -try to stick to it as much as I can. The tune will be stuck in my brain all day now, ear worms!
PP I'm singing Python's Bright side of Life in my head, problem is it sometimes comes out of my mouth
Ha ha KEF, I've just had The Carpenters - Top of The World on my iPod whilst outside, all the neighbours probably heard me as I forget when in my little gardening world
Heard you from here Tracey,
One of my favouries Tracey.I saw them live many years ago.They were amazing.I love Karen's voice.Music and gardening-a great combination.

I can't listen to Karen Carpenter without getting teary. Such a waste of a huge talent. A very accomplished drummer too.
KEF another one of my favourites. You wanted want to hear me singing it though
Tracey, takes me back to the 70s, I only had 3 tapes for my Philipps cassette player, Bridge over Troubled Water, AmerIcan Pie and The Carpenters, loved them all and new every song off by heart.
Can't go far wrong with those choices PPetal
James Taylor and Joni were top of my collection. And lots of S&G and Linda Ronstadt. JT's Mud Slide Slim is still my all time favourite album.
Mr Garfunkel could teach those 'singers' of today a thing or two. Like how to hold a note without all that 'twiddling'.
I sound like my mother now....
One of the advantages of having Sky is getting the two Arts channels. There are some lovely interviews and concerts on it. There was a great Don McLean one recently. What a lovely man he is.
