I had to get a chicklet to make it work for me ...

But when i did it was good - just takes even longer for me to read the mag ....

Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

I absolutely love Bridge over Troubled Water, the whole album, really. Cecilia has to be played loud and sung badly, too!




So does The Boxer - heard someone busking it on the tube last week and embarrassed the Chicklets by adding the cymbal sounds at the appropriate point (lai-de-lai......... tschh-tschhhhhhhh)


the occasional outburst of "I am a rock!" works in a garden setting too



The first one I've seen this year - 2014

Indeed Dove - but they are such handsome birds.  So long as they leave a few for us ......

Well done Daniel et al  - hope it hasn't disrupted too many of your weekend plans .  I occasionally have to work at the weekend, and it is guaranteed to put me in a grump - so real, genuine thanks from this yellow, fluffy tweeter

Going to get my windowsill propagator out and sow my first batch of seeds - lupins, delphiniums, dahlias, rudbeckias, agastache and chillis.  sowed some wildflowers in  seedtrays outside a few weeks ago and the corn cockles are coming through - but no sign of the others yet.  Oh, and out for supper this evening, so need to got to GC for a pot of flowers ....... Might have a sneaky peek for bargains whilst i am there

Very sad - he should get himself a garden - it does wonders

Lizzie - if you find the posts from the "verdun" that only has 7 or so posts, and ignore that one, then the real one and his posts still appear

I've reported it - although might not be too many moderators around at the moment.  In the meantime that ignore button should do the trick .....

Reported  - its like catching the kitchen spammers

Stacey - i put mine in the ground.  Some say you then lift them in the autumn, and store the corms/bulbs like dahlias - but mine seem to survive left in the ground - we are both in the south east so think that might work for you too
