.... 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

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

About 10 years ago we spent a midsummer holiday on Skye - we had torrential rain and strong winds almost every day - but the day we spent in glorious sunlight at Dunvegan Castle and out on the loch will stay in my memory for ever - it was absolutely beautiful 

Vitopod propagator

I've not got one - I use a simple  'windowsill' heated propagator.  

I think that the difficulty with the bigger ones is that once you've germinated a load of tender plants and pricked them out, you need a heated greenhouse for them to grow on in until the weather is warm enough for them not to need heat - that's why I've not bought a bigger propagator.  

My seedlings have to survive on windowsills and the little cold greenhouse until summer arrives.

Oooo - missed your birthday Hosta - happy B for yesterday 🎈🎉

sitting having a posh coffee in littlest Chicklets coffee shop - having just had my mane tamed 🦁🦁🦁.  Very nice treat.  Must head home in a minute .....

sitting on my own, so using my demon phone is allowed 🙀.  Might read the headlines before I go 

See original post

 You're obviously an unthinking puppet of the mobile phone companies Chicky    Enjoy your coffee    I had my mane tamed yesterday - at the end of the procedure there was more hair on the floor than there was left on my head
