Thank you Wonky. Have been trying to clean the place up! OH says "why, when it will be a mess again after the BBQ".

I agree with you, Liri, about intolerance.

Hello all. Been preparing for tomorrow's BBQ for Emmaus. Having 32 to lunch. It is a Christian thing, but non Christians support the Charity events I hold too as I have friends of all sorts of beliefs. I haven't met a horrid Christian yet.

Dove, I think I agree with Fairy about the bamboos!

Sorry about your car. Mine is repaired now, such a difference. Garage man said I was lucky the engine didn't fall out during my 5 hour drive. Yet I'd been to 2 different garages about the vibrations, the second one balanced the tyres. I thought the car was vibrating because of old age. When I said that to the first garage he said Oh it will last some while yet.

Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Bamboos will need quite big pots, they grow big roots. They will need regular watering. Some bamboos, when planted in the ground get very invasive and try to take over the garden! Different sorts of bamboo grow to different heights.

Could the honeysuckle grow up the wall of your house? You could attach wires to support it. Don't plant too close to the foot of a wall, the earth will be too dry.

Christianity is not supposed to be like that, it should encourage tolerance and loving others.

Oh dear, I am a practising Christian. Christians are supposed to care for people no matter their colour or creed or whatever. We are all human with feelings whether heterosexual or homosexual and I find discrimination such as Hosta and his OH have met to be repugnant. My OH's nephew was gay and his partner was welcomed into their family and helped financially by the family when the lovely nephew died from cancer. Christianity is supposed to be a loving and caring religion, but, unfortunately, people don't or can't, always behave in a caring way. I hope I am not narrow minded.

Collected car from garage, it was a support moteur, which I think is an engine mount. The car has been vibrating a bit, it was serviced recently and I told them, but no change so I had its tyres balanced and was told there wasn't much problem, but it still vibrated.

Then on the way home (403kms) yesterday the vibrations were much worse and there was a low deep sort of noise. Garage man said the engine mount had broken and the engine had actually slipped down and I was lucky to get home. Well, why didn't they take any notice when I first thought something was going wrong?

I did acro branching with my daughter and friends a few years ago. I was absolutely terrified. There were 10 levels of difficulty. I only managed the first 2!

Now preparing for charity BBQ here on Sunday. Went shopping for it this morning. Lots of clearing up, cleaning and preparation to do. Place is a tip!
