....... IT WAS A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS THAT THIS GOVERNMENT ALLOWS SUCH A PROLIFERATION OF TARIFFS FOR TRAIN FARES. A JOURNALIST SAID YESTERDAY ON THE PAPERS THAT IN FRANCE THERE WAS ONLY ONE TARIFF. HOW DOES THIS COUNTRY MANAGE TO ALLOW PEOPLE RIP OFF THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS LIKE THIS? 



 When we had British Rail there was a far simpler pricing system with less opportunity for obfuscation.  The current situation is due to the privatisation of the railways -  a process started by Margaret Thatcher and completed by her successors  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privatisation_of_British_Rail


It was obviously never going to be to the benefit of the British public, but is making a great deal of money for businesses and their shareholders.

There are all sorts of computer 'mice' available to people with conditions which make it difficult or impossible to use a conventional one.  There are also voice activated systems - a former colleague had no hands but was able to use a computer at work just as well as the rest of us.

To go back a page 'mid post' I open up a second GW tab and navigate through that to check facts or whatever, then return to the first to continue posting.


Hope that helps - if I've not explained it clearly let me know.

.... Anyone know how to turn on lights in the house when away from home? That would be great if I could do it from my phone.




 You can, with the right set up http://www.wired.co.uk/article/how-to-bring-hive-to-your-home

There's a huge oak tree across the rise and every morning it's leaves have glowed a wonderful golden orange in the morning sun - suddenly, this morning, there are no leaves!


Morning Topbird, Flowers and Pat and everyone as you come along ...

Keep that back warm Topbird - hope the meds work 


Now we're nicely stuffed with Chicken and peppers with balsamic and collapsed on the sofa in front of Strictly.  


Have a lovely evening folks 

Is there an easier way?

I would do as Posy suggests - not necessarily getting in some men, there are women who can do these jobs, but possibly not many around when you need one.  


Then I would hire a stump grinder from B&Q or Homebase or similar - they're no bigger nor harder to use than a petrol rotor mower or cultivator.  Get yourself some goggles and sturdy boots - or find someone who's already got their own and let them get on with the job while you provide bacon sarnies and coffee. 

Shelf life of grease balls for birds

I'd put them out and see if the birds are interested in them - if not get them in and replace with fresh. Some birds are fussier than others
