That was a stroke of luck, Pansyface, never thought you would have found them.

Love Dick Francis, think I've read all his books. If you'd mentioned racehorses and Dick in the same sentence, Chey, I'd have known straight away.

Thank you, Moira. Glad he's feeling better. We do worry about him, we are all real people behind the messages.

I live down a forest track in France. They used to leave us stuff to repair it but our lovely Maire got cancer and died and the track is neglected now. It's a public right of way, doesn't belong to me.

LB, the point of vodka is to put your summer fruit, like raspberries, in it, add sugar and leave for several weeks. Then you have something delicious to add to a glass of prosecco or white wine.

OH gave me 2 jumpers and a Steam and Clean, which vacuums the floor and steam washes it at the same time. He didn't want to give me that, said it wasn't romantic, but I wanted it so he he gave in, bless him. I'm wearing one of the jumpers and I've just cleaned the big farmhouse kitchen tiled floor, it's brilliant, never looked so clean.

Kitty, when we first came to France in 1985 we were surprised to see decorations up until February, but nothing was started before December, I had trouble finding a tree for sale until after mid-December here in Dordogne. But now decorations are taken down much earlier and there are signs of Christmas from October, trees for sale end of November. The French often used to leave their decorations until 2nd February which is Chandeleur/Candlemas. That is also the French pancake day when loads of frying pans on special offer are displayed in the supermarkets.

Thank you Hazel. Nice to see you too.

My Plant is dying. I need help!

Pretty sure it's drought. Have you watered them at all since you moved in? As Dove says, at least 3 buckets at a time or it won't sink right down into the soil around the roots. Planted really close to the fence with a slope on the other side means they won't be getting much water unless you give it to them. The previous owner of your house must have watered regularly.

Forgot about George Clooney. OH 's niece was hoping to see him a few year's ago when she went but he wasn't in.

Good morning all. I hope you all had a good day yesterday. We did.

Popping in here to say hello as no one is up yet on the Forkers thread yet.

What a nuisance about Mr. Muscle's specs, hope you find them. No spare pair?

That's early Rubee, here the French often leave them up until February, but I know what you mean. Good to get back to normal.
