I've been growing watercress in pots in deepish water. Do you do this? How often do you change the water?

I visit; Wisbech, King's Lynn and Downham Market libraries. They very rarely have new books by authors that I know, so I have to experiment with new (to me) writers. Last week I took out 6 books and they were all badly written rubbish (how do they get published?) So I read none of them. I would be very p....d off if I had had to pay for each one. I agree with the poster above who said that we already pay - this is true, but in the current situation I can see that we will have to contribute more towards their upkeep.

Also do the libraries really need to stock shelf after shelf of Mills and Boon type novels, does anyone read them?

A Jack Russell is very good at this too But, as above, don't get one just to deal with rats; they need walks, vet visits, affection, food, fun, lots of games...rather like having a child, but you don't have to help them with homework.

Modern Technology etc.
