It's a bit late, as far as I can see, the objections had to be registered by Dec 4th.

Dove, is sending a PM to Daniel the same as 'report to moderator'?

I see loads of people have looked at your posting, so I will be the brave one; what are bunds, and what is an Abri?

A few years back, I discovered a cardboard box with, I think, a computer in it under my oil tank; it had been there for 10 months! It was addressed to my neighbour!

I agree with Mrs G. Even when I worked like a navvy, I still found time to do small decorative projects, why? Because I care about such things. Perhaps smflyman has different priorities?

It is driving me crazy; I stopped getting email responses to threads earlier this year. when I rejoined the forum a couple of weeks ago, I told the powers that be about this; they did a technical investigation; hurrah, I got email responses for ONE day. Since then; nothing; I have complained to the moderator again; nothing happens.

What should I be doing?

Christine; I have had a big problem all year with these email responses; I recently complained and had one day, yes, ONE DAY OF RESPONSES. Now; nothing, so have complained (nicely) again, but nothing! If I can get them sometimes it means that there is nothing wrong with my computer set-up.

Verdun; up until about 120 years ago, carts collected the 'night soil' from London houses and put it straight onto the fields that grew the veg which were sold in, guess where? London! Even now, in the Fens, there was a very large and mysterious pile of very fine gray dust by a field where I walk the muttette. A neighbour told me it is re-cycled London (that place again - I'm sure I've heard of it before...) sewerage. I'm pretty sure he is right as it was covered in tomato plants in the late summer, before the farmer and his tractor dug it into the ground, WITHOUT WEARING A FACE MASK!!!

Basically, though, plant growth is circular; manure feeds the seeds, which grows the plants, which get eaten, which creates manure...
