Did you have to resort to spelling it fuschia David? You see that all the time!

 

There came to be numerous adaptations, Fairy......think I used to post 'fooshia'.

A Day Out

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 09:29

That's quite spooky, pansy and not something I've ever encountered after quite a few years using various forums.

In my BBC message board posting days (most are closed now) they used to have a curious system which involved the text turning red while you were composing the message, if Big Brother thought you were attempting to post something offensive. The upshot being that you couldn't use the word 'fuchsia' because the text turned red as soon as you entered 'fuc'......very inconvenient as it was a gardening forum.  

Let's Remember Them

My cousin was killed in France during the D-day landings, until now I've not known much about the circumstances, where he is buried etc.

I've now found this great War Graves Commission's website & been able to trace the circumstances of his death & where he was buried......even was able to download a certificate that could be framed if required.

This is the website, I post it as it may be useful to others:  http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead.aspx

Dove, you understand me so well. I do love working dogs, they know their place and would I sound silly if I said I would welcome them into my home.

Dove - font of wisdom always. xx

However, they know me too well for the 'seed packets spread out' line.

Thing is I drool over the affection between man & dog in 'One man & his dog'. or any working dog......just can't stand these smelly lap dogs.

Oh, and if you didn't notice, I'm a tad house-proud & fussy.

HELLO FORKERS!

Btw, I have a outhouse or summer house that I could make available, although I would imagine that suggestion would be met with some horror.
