I use one for the driveway. I dont have the energy nor time to dig out the cracks by hand regularly and unfortunately a bi annual pressure wash and sand session only seem to last a month or two before the weeds are back.

It isn't very large nor powerful but then neither is my car and in levels of damage to the bugs etc...

Morning all. Very high winds here throughout the night but I think we're mostly undamaged. I'm taking the truck to work though; the little Peugeot always feels vulnerable in bad weather (plus being high up you can see the damage across hedges and gardens better!)

Pat I think you've anabfed to get better access to our weather reports than I have!

So sad for you Pat 

It's a hind leg, Clari. And he's a skinny dog which also helps. But he's 11 years old, so getting on a bit for learning new tricks.

See original post

 Oh bless; the parents dog was around 13 when she went deaf and learnt sign language. Age Is only a number when there's enough cheese based snacks around!

It's dust on the window; make sure you rinse your car windows well before applying the wipers - don't want scratches.

Raisin: front leg or back? I knew a farmer whose working dog had an injury which resulted in amputation. The dog still would round the lambs up and in fact the only hindrance he had was while things were fresh he'd fall over cocking the "wrong" rear leg! I hope your hound recovers quickly.

Punk: that sounds scary. Please please don't delay getting in to hospital if you need it.

Hosta; the man speaks sense.

It might sound a little lazy: But I lawn mow up all my leafs: so they get nicely shredded and chuck that under the trees etc. They seem to break down very quickly over winter.

I was told to water them with what I thought was a good amount. Then put the same again on. I think they are very thirsty things.

Good luck for the storm everyone

Lily; you mention it being dark. I was thinking that too. But then We are so close to clocks going back I think the warm weather is tricking us in to not believing we're later into the year.
