HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 28/08/2015 at 21:49

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!

Morning all. Got back from son's (helping with house move and 2 little granddaughters) yesterday.

New house, lovely, mix of old farmhouse and barn conversion, but still lots of work to do on it, 5 hours drive away. 3 hours country  roads, got fed up with following queues of caravans and camping cars, 2 hours motorway. Car has got noisy, think exhaust needs looking at, going to garage soon.

Haven't read back yet, except this page. Is Wonky moving? I hope Pat is OK.

Lily P, Matty is OK, but has been busy and her new rescue dog has been a bit of a handful because of her nerves, but is settling down now.

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

Posted: 27/08/2015 at 22:12

Thick long branches won't work as cuttings. You need small thin pieces of new growth with a growing tip on them, cut just below a leaf node. Don't feed until after they have taken. It may work just by putting the shoots in a glass of water. Then pot into compost when roots appear.

Bit fed up but always a silver lining......

Bother, I'll miss it again. Going to son's to help with moving house.
