Hello all

Salino quote...from New allotment she is trying to get an allotment

Gardengirl...I'm in East Anglia..Fenland area...the soil I have been told is excellent on the site and it doesn't flood..

Dove are you from that area?

was sunny now looks a bit grey

Salino is over to the west of us on lovely black fenland - we're just south-west of Norwich, on gritty free-draining sandy loam - part of the belt of terminal moraine that runs up to the Cromer Ridge - the Ice Age stopped here

We've had rain all morning, but it's brightening up here now.

Hello folks - just popping in - as KEF has told you the best laid plans of mice and men gang oft awa - or something along those lines - anyway I'm still on borrowed laptop and can only have it when OH isn't using it, and he uses it quite a lot.

Fidget ((hugs)) hope to hear your Dad's a lot better soon.

Don't stamp on them with worn smooth Crocs - like ice skating   Drown them in salty water, or beer if you're feeling kind.

Cleaning an older dog's teeth is not uncommon - like with humans, if tartar has built up it can cause inflamed gums and the loss of teeth which will in turn cause other problems.

It's not a cheap treatment however - your vet should give you an idea of the cost before going ahead.

There's some info here http://www.purina.co.uk/content/your-dog/helping-to-keep-your-dog-healthy/regular-dog-care/looking-after-your-dog%27s-teeth

I would imagine that he's contravening his tenancy agreement. 

I would also assume that the Fire Service are going to be notifying either the council or the police or both - all sorts of rules and regs are presumably being conravened.

If I were you I would also make a formal written complaint to the council re noxious and possibly hazardous fumes.

They can issue him with an order to make him clear up his property - and if he's physically/mentally not able to do that they can arrange for it to be done.

Oh, morning Lily - didn't see you there

and I should have said good morning to everyone - but I've been reading back for ages .... well, obviously it's not me that does all the talking

5' 7"   and I (used to) have the same measurements as Twiggy

Blue skies and sunshine here - just waiting for load of towels to finish in the machine so that I can hang them out before going to visit son and Aged Ps, and hopefully pick up new laptop so that normal service can be resumed

I've found various suppliers online - http://www.wassledine.co.uk/hazel.html these seem good, but as usual it's the cost of carriage that spoils things.  I'm growing my own but I'll have to be patient

Morning folks!  Just had a catch up - good luck to daughter and grand daughter Liri

Enjoy the shopping KEF - rather you than me

Hugs/cheers or whatever's appropriate for everyone else

Lovely Builder arrived just as the scones were cooling - he had two mugs of tea and two scones and re-sealed the bath - we'll test it tonight when it's 'gone off properly' and phone him with the result.  Charge for an emergency visit on a BH?  £15  

Identify please.

It can be very invasive - I keep a strict weeding regime at the foot of the fence separating our garden from next doors
