The Bakewell Show

Posted: 07/08/2015 at 11:41

I usually try to visit Bakewell show, but this  year decided to give it a miss because parking has proved almost impossible on previous occasions.  I was there on Monday of this week to visit the market.....even then, parking was very difficult.

Lizzie, in view of your interest, perhaps you may enjoy these pics of Shrewsbury Flower Show:

I was never very thrilled when Microsoft introduced Windows 8 (or 8.1)  but now they have seemingly learned from their mistakes and introduced what seems to be a very interesting operating system in  *Windows 10.

I'm contemplating updating my Dell Inspiron desktop with Windows 7, with this in mind I called in on PC World today and was blown away by this Apple Mac.

  • Intel® Core™ i5 processor
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 M290X

Any views from Apple users?


*Free upgrade for Win 7, 8 & 8.1.

I was there yesterday, Rb (for the market, not the show) the weather was glorious...we then went on to Buxton via the Snake Pass....beautiful scenery.  I  can say that much of the framework for the show is complete and ready for tomorrow's opening.

I'm not attending the show this year, but I'm sure you'll have a lovely day....btw, I think Pansyface lives in the area.

Cheers for that, Chicky....I have to change to 'basic editor' to post anything at all.

Pleased to hear your news about Eagle SPs. I'm sure you understand, I wouldn't recommend anything unless I was sure of my facts....I know the expertise & hard work done by Eagle to produce the very best.

For me Whitney Houston had one of the most amazing voices of my era, only to be cut short by ironically in similar circumstances her daughter Bobbi has died today.....RIP.

Hi, granma....generally speaking it isn't advisable to feed azaleas after the end of this month, the reason being that it will induce new growth that may be damaged by frost.
