Hi Lyn 

I'm fairly certain Daniel has said that they're going to look at the scrolling issue.  Re the edit button, I'm aware that at least one person found out how to manipulate the Edit function that we used to have in order to cause mischief - do you remember the rather obscene and racist pictures posted at one time by a certain person.  They disappeared before the Mods saw them and were replaced with something much more innocent.  Also really inflammatory posts were changed and made to look totally innocent after people had responded to them angrily.  I found out how that was done using the edit button.  We might have to put up with typos and spelling mistakes in order to avoid that sort of manipulation.  

Perhaps a Preview option would work ....... although on the foodie forum I use people sometimes forget to hit Submit after they've seen the Preview, and then their post disappears into the ether.  

Hope you'll stay around ((hugs))

Just discovered that the road into Southwold is closed from today onwards for a few days for gas mains work - we'll have to go the long way round via Reydon Marshes ............. missing out the a12 and access to Woottens all together.

Morning! - lovely day! 

...  Hope the planning goes well Dove. On a positive note about having to do it at this time of year - lots of journeys past Wootens... 

See original post

 Well, I have to make just a tiny detour ........ and there's horrendous roadworks on the A12 at Blythburgh at the moment ... might have to give Woottens a miss today, if we're going to have time to eat icecream ...

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

Beautiful morning here 13.8C was the lowest overnight temperature (yesterday it got up to 27.1C) and the tomatoes are romping away.  I'll have to pot them on very soon.  

The bluetit parents are popping in and out of the nestbox by the back door and the nestlings are chirping inside and the trees and hedgerows are full of birdsong.

BL ((hugs))  so sorry about your friends. 

Lots to be done today, but not all in the garden ... I've a meeting down in Southwold with the vicar and I'm afraid that's going to take some time.  Don't want to carp, but couldn't Ma have chosen a time of year when there's less to do in the garden???
