Way back in the 70s a car stopped at the top of our farm drive and a couple got out and started walking down the drive towards our house picking our daffodils!  You should've seen Ma's face!  She sent Pa to send them away - I thinik they'd have been more scared if Ma had gone and seen them off!

Sorry Matthew, I posted in a rush this morning   when I used the word gullible I wasn't pointing the finger at anyone, let alone at you.  You were not gullible because you sought advice from elsewhere rather than falling for their plan.   What I really should have said was that the website was hoping to find gullible people who would fall for it.

I really didn't mean to cause offence.  Please accept my sincere apology

Apparently it has to be absolutely dark - a dark room won't do it - passing car headlights, moonlight etc will stop it colouring up.
