HELLO FORKERS!

I sometimes find that when there are a lot of photos the thread blocks, has happened on Marion's photo threads and on Garden Gallery, especially when the photos are big. Don't know whether it's my lap top or the site. Usually find that when others have posted and a new page is started it's OK again.

Morning all. Only 37 years til retirement for me so I guess I ought think about getting up! Enjoy retirement Dove, but don't be like my future mother in law who upon retiring has volunteered for so much you wonder whether she ever sits down!

I'm starting to think that's what I've done!

Stacey mentioning ski ing. Spending kid's inheritance. Something I never understand is why is the money the parents have spent their lives working for and saving up (which they often use to help their children anyway) for their retirement, the children's inheritance?

If I use large pots for annuals I don't change the soil down to the bottom, just change the top few inches of compost.

I must dig out all the Vinca minor that is taking over the end of my big herbaceous border and smothering plants that are in there. I never planted it in the first place - don't know where it came from! Have another unplanted patch under a conifer, it can stay there.

We had guests a couple of weeks ago who gave me a box of Belgian chocolates with 3 layers. I ate them all in 2 days! Anyway chocolate contains an anti-depressant

Pam, I may upset people too because I completely agree with you. I have lived in the country most of my life. Fox hunting is the way of killing that foxes do themselves. The fox either gets off free or is killed very quickly at the end. Shooting can leave foxes horribly injured.  The fox gets away and sometimes the huntsman thinks he's missed, when what he's done is riddle the poor fox with holes full of shot, still alive.
