Went out to restaurant for lunch today with the friends who we are going to Lake Garda with. Still feel full. Other friends arrive tomorrow, they will be staying in our house while we are away. I first met her on this forum sometime ago and I've been to her house and we became friends.

I'm hoping to go on a boat on Lake Garda, but that's not the same thing as real sailing! My brother used to race, but I preferred horses.

Went to the big hypermarket with friends who are staying, they are coming to Italy with us. We lunched at the Wok place, Chinese, they cook your meal in front of you.

Mike, I'm sorry you have met rudeness here, but this site has suffered from some strange people in the past and I think it could be because you didn't explain the whole problem in the beginning, so it sounded a bit strange. I hope you find your answer.

I suppose it's Windows 8 Dove. When OH got his new one he had to change from Windows 7 to 8 and he found it very confusing at first.

Morning all. Our guests had breakfast outside in the sun, but it was only 13° in the shade, too cold for me! But should be 25° later.

Autumn starts around the 21st September, the equinox. So most of September is still summer.

Should I use rock salt to kill weeds

I would rather use glyphosate than salt.

Wood changes colour with age. Different batches of wood can be different colours. Also it looks as though the dark wood has been stained, which is a wise thing to do anyway to help preserve the wood. It wouldn't be hard to stain the new wood a darker colour.

Not selfish. My mother was great about it. After her fall and her hip replacement she asked to go in a home and she had already put herself on the waiting list of the home in her town. They looked after her until she died.

Good luck in your new home and garden, Sweet Pea and may it be much better than the last one, with a lovely landlord.
