Glad you're enjoying growing stuff. 

Be careful with importing soil ... it may contain seeds  ... you won't be very popular if you introduce ground elder or Japanese knot weed to the allotment site

I remember when friends were choosing a gravestone for their father ... they were very taken with some smart illustrations of Italian marble ... until I reminded them that he had endured a particularly difficult time in Italy when in the British Army in WW2 ... I thought he'd revolve in his grave if he thought he was being memorialised with an Italian headstone ........... fortunately they saw my point of view and chose York stone ... much better suited to him and an English country churchyard

A former colleague (younger than me) grew up in London in a children's home close to where Sting lived when he was first famous... apparently he and the other boys would chase Sting and he would jog faster and faster thinking they were going to cause trouble ... all they wanted to do was jog around the park and streets with him
