Poor Lawn

That looks much shorter than my lawn at this time of year. 


Do Green Thumb have an explanation for the condition of your lawn?  It's not a very good advertisement for them

Improving Composting for the Elderly

I agree with Jo, the most difficult part of composting is turning the compost - fortunately I have  a much younger partner so until I've worn him out he does it for me 

How old is your houseplant?

So did my tennis racket this morning

Hosta, she obviously spotted that you're extremely stylish and thought you'd want to keep up with fashion

Tennis was very good - then I went to the PO and spent a fortune on stamps for Christmas cards - now for a bowl of soup

Right - stumps ground out and everything packed away and gone.  Just time to get to tennis - see you later ... yes Hosta, my knee is strapped up properly

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

It comes up first on the Talkback Forum 'cos it's been 'pinned' to the top by Admin - that's what the symbol means.

Don't know why it would have come up first on Latest Posts - could you have clicked on Talkback by mistake?

Good morning all  G'day Pat

Sorry to hear we have a poorly Panda - hope you're snuggled down and warm ((hugs))

Man with stump grinder due here this morning so I'm not sure whether I'll get to tennis or not ...

Hosta, just 'cos that knee feels ok don't you go and overdo it - it's just trying to trick you!

LilyP, love Agas - have had several when I've lived out in the countryside, all sorts from the solid fuel to oil then electric - loved them all

Glad you're home ok Hosta - now take it easy some more and let that knee rest!
