Ma used to offer vegetarians a ham salad - after. all, you must have some meat ... it's protein 

I popped and saw Wonky today, she's off work with 'flu ,,, she had hoped to go back tomorrow but has just texted that she still has a high temperature and is shivering ... bless her ((hugs))  I've had a flu jab so I should be ok

Definitely don't cut up the box  - but you could get a colour laser copy made and someone with a jig saw could cut out a piece of wood the right size and shape

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,: Courage to change the things I can,: And wisdom to know the difference. 

Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971)

And I believe we will change more by continuing to treat all our fellow humans with tolerance and respect, regardless of race, religion, politics or our own self-interest.    Tiny steps, but forward ...

Good morning all 

Pdoc ((Hugs)) never was the word tragedy so apt.  I just don't know what could be done to make things better that wouldn't make things worse elsewhere. It seems that every time we try to right wrongs we cause yet more obscenities. The road to hell is paved with good intentions ...  I think one of the problems is that historically the west has thought that it has the answers to other peoples problems ... And it patently hasn't. 

Chicky, OH and I were just bemoaning the closure of the little cottage hospitals and convalescent homes. It's the lack of these that causes bed blocking. Southwold had a cottage hospital, partially funded by Adnams brewery, and it was wonderful that Pa could be sent there when he no longer needed to be in the big hospital 25 miles away. Sadly even with the additional funding from Adnams the NHS have ended it's function as a hospital and now only houses clinics. The repurcussions are immense both for the big hospital and the local community. Eventually I expect someone will come up with the idea of opening little local convalescent hospitals!  We keep reinventing the wheel. 

Today I will be driving around Suffolk. I have to see solicitors re the Aged Ps' estates, so I'll deliver cards and presents in that area at the same time.

Black mulberry tree

Outside your area, but this place is superb and they sell black mulberries - they also sell more mature trees although whether they have older mulberries I don't know - you could email or ring them

Yep, once they get like that they're just food for slugs - no need to encourage the blighters

Gazanias are tender perennials and won't over-winter in most UK gardens so they usually get treated as annuals - if they've gone slimy my guess is that they've had their chips - I'd pull them up and sow fresh seed or get plug plants in the spring
