The collar looks good Gertie - that's always a tricky bit


Yay!  We have our tv back and it works £32.00 + VAT

Thought there might be a fair bit of choccy lab there somewhere - which size labradoodle will she be?  They seem to come in the same range of sizes as the poodles don't they?

Saw him earlier this year - a most entertaining afternoon - just seemed like a genuinely nice guy. 

That's the impression I get too - do you remember that series, was it called Big Dreams-Small Spaces or something like that - there were people some of whose ideas I would have called totally bonkers, and I remember one that turned out to be just plain 'wrong', but MD never put their ideas down or made them feel twerps - he just showed them ways they could get as close to their dream as possible.   The one that turned out to be 'just plain wrong' didn't take any notice of his suggestions.

Hello I'm back - with tennis racquet ( less than half price in sale )

Hello Bushman - glad you're ok - coffee's always on the go here.

What on earth have you lot been up to - not chatting that's for sure ...

OH says while I was out he had a phone call to say the tv has been repaired - we can go and fetch it when he's had his lunch!

I agree, I'd cut them back and keep them almost bone dry.

This is so funny! 

I'm also on a foody forum - there's a thread on there at the moment on what people find annoying about tv chefs - I think I must be really easy going - I just watch and accept people as they are, all different, all with their idiosyncrasies that make them human and interesting. 

I would hate it if all tv presenters, be they gardeners, chefs or even Top Gear presenters, adopted some approved middle of the road innocuous corporate style of presenting.  It would be the modern equivalent of  the received pronunciation that used to prevail on BBC TV back in the 50s and 60s.  Heaven forfend!!!
