Just saw your post about daughter coming back after I posted the above. So glad for you all. Must have been a worry.

We had our pancakes with sugar and lemon for lunch as OH is going to choir AGM tonight.

Had powercut for several hours due to the snow.  Electricity back now.Par for the course.

Some of those woman were quite attractive and some looked nice rather than powerful, but I hadn't heard of most of them.

Look after yourself Bjay, keep warm.

Well said Gardening Grandma, Obelix and Lyon Greene.

If there was more tolerence, respect and understanding of our fellow men the world would be a better place. By the way, the average income for a Catholic priest in England is about £10,000 a year. C of E nearer £25000. (I'm not a Catholic, but I do think Christ's teachings are good).

Mine is in a large pot, moved her there when she was young, some years ago and she's flowered reliably ever since.

It opened for me on my laptop. Lots of lovely photos of their garden. I don't prune Nelly Moser every year, but when she gets a bit big or messy or the tips of stems have died off in winter I trim off the tips to healthy buds around March.

This isn't really that sort of forum but, discodave I think you are being rather hard. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. He's 85 and he is the first to resign for 600 years, which I think is a sensible decision.

What's the weather like in your area?

We actually had a little bit of sun this afternoon, I pruned a climbing rose - have I said that already or was that Fork Handles? Were watching lovely penguins on TV, picture broke up, snow on satellite dish. Not forecast, all is white again.

We were watching the lovely penguins programme when picture broke up. Snow! Unforecast! OH had to go out and sweep it off the satellite dish. Glad the heating oil arrived today (except for the horrendous bill) and we did a food and dog food shop.

University Challenge was extra hard tonight, only got 3, don't know why I bother. OH likes it, he's good at physics and maths.

If you click on your name it takes you to your personal page and you can click on "messages" and write to anyone on this forum if you know their forum nickname. Then only they get it and not everyone else.
