Hosta, the tories can do what they like now...the further cutting of disability benefits seems very harsh. Surely the fraudsters have been weeded out now so it is the genuinely disabled who are affected. The "fifth richest country in the world"?  So why are we cutting to the bone? ...

To keep the bankers and their ilk in the obscene lifestyles to which they've become accustomed ...

JL will give a trade in when you're buying the higher end tvs Verdun, but not on a 20 year old tv when you're spending under £350.

Fairy   I was thinking of binding the pot tightly with wire to try to stop the crack from opening up when we re-pot the fig - but if it does, do you think this would do the trick?

Go for 3D Dove.  Sport is fantastic 

We'll get an HD one, think 3D is a step too far for us. 

 

Hosta - the old tv used to belong to my Aged Ps - when they moved into the Lovely Home it was too big for their room so we got them a smaller one and we had this one.

Before this one, the only tv we had was a 14" portable - if we go up to a 40" that'll be huge for us!

Sun's just peeping through here Verdun   Let's hope we all have a lovely gardening day

Sorry to hear you had a bad night Hosta ((hugs))  but you're doing better than you were   Try not to lay there and get frustrated by not sleeping - do some meditation exercises and try to think that at least you're getting some rest

We're going to JL for the tv - a 5 year guarantee is not to be sneezed at and they'll deliver it and make sure it'll talk to our hub etc (for a small fee) and take the old one away - got to be worth it. 

We've been looking online and think we've found a fairly reasonable one that'll suit - we're going for a slightly bigger screen than the one we have which is a 32"  - this sitting room is quite large and we sit a fair distance from the tv and when I'm watching Wimbledon it's hard to see the scores in the top left corner, so slightly bigger will be good.  As long as it's not too big.

Hello

Hi Joannie and welcome

Looking forward to hearing about your garden and the plants you like to grow.  Which part of the country (roughly) are you in?

You'll find non-gardening chat on the Hello Forkers thread (and elsewhere ) and you'll soon see there are walkers and cyclists there too

Plug Plants

Hmmm, the blurb says   "... Fill your borders with colour for years to come ..." 

it doesn't say they're going to flower this year, so I think they're perennials in their first year (or even biennials in the case of the foxgloves) and they're unlikely to flower until 2017..

It's amazing how copy-writers can turn a negative into a positive

Good morning Nic

Are we talking about fennel the herb, or Florence fennel the vegetable?
