HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

FG, I need an edit button too.


Clari I found the numbers, further down than I thought. I don't like the purple at the bottom either, not restful.


I wish they could have kept the previous format, but with improvements.

Just looked at messages, a box appeared to send a message to myself. Where are all my previous messages? I wanted to look at something someone sent me and it's no longer there.


To send a message to someone else do I click on their avatar?

How do you look back at the previous page? No page numbers at the bottom and I'm sure there are posts I've missed this afternoon.


I really don't like this format, too big and too white.


Just seen pages on the bottom, sure they weren't there a minute ago! To much scrolling with this format.

Just found it, no oak tree, but something that looks like an E on the right had side, is easier in fact - that's if it works!

This is just awful. I feel as though an old friend has gone forever. I agree with all the above comments.


It's too white for me, I liked the old format. You can only see one post at a time, have to keep scrolling to see what people have said. Lots of wasted space. Why was there a need to change it? It was fine before. I don't have a phone to see it on anyway, I have an old phone, simpler and cheaper to run and fits better in my jodhpur pocket when riding.


How do you send photos? No oak tree.


Our avatar pictures are much smaller and you can't see the number of posts people have done, which I like because you can tell if they are a newish poster.


How do you turn back to the previous page? No page numbers, or have I missed them.


This thread also appeared on the first page when I had it set to appear at the last page.


If the forum stays like this I will be another one leaving, after 4 years. Just can't cope with it.

So...............

This thread got very interesting with people's memories, but no one would know that from the title, so I've started a new memories thread. Hope no one minds.

When We Were Young

Did anyone like school dinners? Hated Spam and corned beef, beetroot with spiky bristles in it and lumpy mashed potato without butter. Quite liked tinned peaches. Hated tapioca and sago. The was a jam tart called "battlefields" with dessicated coconut on it.

When I went to nursing school I thought the food was great and there was a choice.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Hope you are better soon Archiepem. Rotten luck having man flu in May.

I realised when I'd been weeding the upper and lower trellis beds that there are 2 glaring holes that desperately needed climbing roses. Especially as one of the very old woody Mme Alfred Carrière didn't survive the hard pruning and the deer damage. So after lunch went to a small nursery and bought 2 roses. They didn't have any that were on their website that I'd chosen, so came back with Pink Cloud (bred in the USA) and Belle Epoque. Neither is familiar to me. English websites show Belle Epoque as yellow bronze and French websites show it as pink flushed with bronze.

I want a clematis Niobe for where the Mme Alfred was. Can't find one. Gardening club have told me of 2 places where I might find one, but an hour's drive away.
