Did I not say look away, Frank? It was Cyndi Lauper - 'Time After Time'.....you'd have loved it.

Btw, U-tube is under the sink, this is YouTube.   

Keep dancing!

My onion stems aren't drying out

Adrian...really is time those onions were lifted, dried  stored by now. Put your fork under each bulb and prise them out of the ground, then after they have died down you can dry them off and store them.

Problem is, the sun's day length is shorting quite quickly now, so you may have to dry them indoors....somewhere like the greenhouse staging.

Interesting you thought so too, Lily. I did play the said words back a couple of times before posting here and could only conclude they were as I thought......Alas, I do think Angela is probably right.

Yes, Frankie is a petite little thing who should do well.

PS. Just replayed it again and have to admit (listening very carefully) it does sound like 'fall'.....subtitles next week?

David, I think Jennifer said "Don`t let me fall" "I managed to do that without falling", Its the Dublin accent that's hard to understand.  Her dance partner is from here as well, so it will be hard for people to understand. But don`t worry, I`ll translate for you.  Love Pixie, and Mark is very easy on the eye....

 

Thank you Angela....in that case I withdraw what I said.    Perhaps the fact Mrs Brown's Boys revolves around bad language influenced my thinking.

I'm sure you'll enjoy it, Lily.

Btw, not impressed with Jennifer Gibney (Mrs Brown's Boys) either......nothing to do with her dancing. In the pre-dance clip she said 'just don’t let me fart', after the dance she said to Tess  'I managed to do that without farting'.

Not very ladylike, but not surprising I suppose.

 

preparing ground

Hi, Mozey, welcome to the forum.

You have my sympathy if you have chickweed on your allotment, although it's shallow rooted and can be pulled-up easily, it's still very persistent.

Unless you intend to planting on the ground you intend to dig, I would leave it and winter dig it, anytime after next month. This involves just turning the soil and leaving it rough for the frosts & elements to break down.

Well that’s week one over with.

Pwoar!!….Frankie Bridge and Kevin what a combo and she can dance too.

I really enjoyed Alison Hammond’s dance who put in a performance that didn’t disgrace  the size 16 + s.

The sooner barrow boy Gregg Wallace goes the better, for me…..sadly my favourite professional Aliona Vilani will be out too.

Never liked a poser, so not keen on Thom Evans…..who would spell Tom wiv a ‘h’?

Wow, what a sunset!

What on earth lost the three points (wait till lily sees this)



Very kind of you, Lesley....but it's far from perfect and those achieving full marks (not sunsets particularly) were far better.

As a subject, competition sunsets are quite common and for them to stand any chance they must include other interesting features....this is why I chose to include an interesting cloud formation and silhouetted trees.
