Hello Forkers - April edition

That's reassuring, Joyce, thank you. Maybe Dordogne and Scotland are just too rural, but it wasn't always like this.

Birthday thread usually appears on my email notifications. I'll have a look for it.

Oh dear I've almost missed Wonky's birthday. I hope you had a lovely day.

Rubbish Internet, can't imagine what they repaired when it went off yesterday. Friends in the village said theirs was off too and is also rubbish. Pages here won't scroll, haven't been able to type. At least I'm typing now but there's a pause before each letter arrives on the page. Usual thing though, emails are OK and other forum, it's just this one. I also get a security warning from time to time. Wrote to Nora, she can't help if the problem is Internet my end, but why is it just this site? Well, others are slow, but I can write on them.

Done weeding, digging, ivy cutting back, now I ache. Hot chocolate with  pain killer coming up.

What a lot of seeds you've got! I hope they do well.  It all looks very neat.

I started to write yesterday, but lost Internet.

Morning all.

Just after last post here and contacting Nora (why didn't I think of sending a PM?) the Internet disappeared altogether.  France Telecom told me they'd been having problems and they were working on it. I wasn't the only one with the problem. They said it would be back this morning, which it is. Seems a bit better, I can type, scrolling is still a bit jerky, but it hasn't got stuck - yet! They also said the technician was coming at lunchtime to repair the line that the tree fell on, it's been temporarily repaired and is still on the ground. So I went to look in the afternoon but he hadn't been.

Did gardening yesterday.

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well, Pat, but it was a good thing to get everything checked out.

Delphiniums and rosebuds Pansy?? It's only just April! 

Looks like a nice day here, I should be outside. Spent ages trying to get onto the site. It just doesn't work properly when Internet is poor. No problems when we are in Norfolk.

Hope you feel better soon SGL.

Morning all.

Good news about baby's passport, I hope they will be able to visit as soon as baby is well again.

Trouble typing on here again. I think more people left the forum because the site doesn't work properly if you have feeble Internet, rather than because there was any unpleasantness between posters. I'm getting to the stage when I feel like leaving, it's such a waste of time clicking and clicking and nothing happens. In Norfolk the Internet is good and I don't have troubles. I post on another forum and there is no bother with that. Does anyone know how to contact Nora?

Apparently dead gazanie

They are usually grown as annuals. Fairly cheap to buy, plant new ones every year.
