Put your feet up and relax then Frank. Honey and sugar-glazed ham is lovely - and lots of cold cuts (well, there are in this house when I do it!)
Funny old world, this virtual message board lark. Getting locked out for no reason is frustrating. Could be worse - we both of us remember the worst of the Beeb boards, which rather coloured perception of all that was good!
That said, I have to say this is a friendly board - and we don't see lots of modded posts, often for little or no reason! (I just hope I haven't put the hex on it by saying that!)
Tulips: the older I get, the more I relish a real blast of colour in the spring. I can admire Monty's restrained colour palette, but don't want to replicate it. I want lots of vibrant colours (white, cream and lemon yellow just don't do it for me), and tulips are perfect for providing a real statement. I'm already looking forward to next year, since I shall plant some in pots that can, if necessary, move with us, as well as the bedding varieties that may be left behind.
