Clarington. To the left of the settings option at the bottom of the youtube video is a caption button. I think that will put subtitles on.

Thanks Edd. I've just given that a try - its a bit hit and miss but better than nothing!

Can you easily put subtitles on your videos Rusty Spade? That's what I really struggle with just looking at the Gardeners World videos on this website - no subtitles means all I've got is too much time looking at the person rather than the plant and wobbly camera work!

The two small garlics were ones that had split off a larger bulb and haven't divide themselves. Still should be a nice addition to a meal sometime!

No fancy web videos here but this is what I pulled up last night: bit of a range in size and the onion is one seedling / bulb that spilt in two hence looking a bit on the small size.

OL - I did wonder about the mother not seeming to be concerned about her child, very strange since it wasn't even as if he was old enough to catch a bus home if she'd left him! (I seem to remember he was still in a nappy). Perhaps she was unwell and thus her attention was lacking but I know taking the children I used to baby sit to the park was the most stressful time of me life and not worth the money I was paid (I swear they plan ahead to run in separate directions!)

Glad your pampering is working. Leave that ironing - what's the point in a back massage if you ruin it all stood over an ironing board?!

Sounds like you had a lovely time Percy - get that garden tidied up! If she's on first name terms they might appear for a cup of tea one day!

Meant to be some of the best tasting too if you asked some of the older sewage workers I met on a project!!
