Well Lazy gardener if you read my original post i just wished the old man good luck for his retirement and that was all,, at 85 i think  he deserves a rest,i made No comments on religion nor will i except i remember i was sent to Sunday school untill i was 13 never missed,and yet my mum and dad now gone were not even religious and it wasnt untill mum was very ill that in a conversation i actualy asked her why i was sent to Sunday school ?she smiled at me and said "when you and your brother and sister went to Sunday school that was the only time your dad and i had to ourselves ""i smile even today when i think about mum and dads sunday afternoons, and you wish i hadnt brought this up ,,i didnt did i,  the very first reply did ,mycomments were all in good taste and best wishes for a fellow human and im told he was a very keen gardener   Good luck all

Hi Lyn i remember when granma and everybody in the street used to scrub the floors the front door step and sweep the causeway on the road outside there house everyday and they still got ants in the house especially in those old larders with the drop down fronts, the ants used to nick the sugar,the people used to moan about them even then and i still  see the old larders in the auctions now and again no ants though-bit of a b----y nuisance for you, hope, you get rid of em ,good luck Lyn
