Absolutely agree with Gardening Granny - get them in now

Has anyone successfully stopped a planning application before?

Tootles says the building is already listed.

Whoops!  Missed that

That could be good news then - there are restrictions on things that can be done/built in the area affecting a Listed Building.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Cousin in Australia had it years ago - he's fine.  Niece had it years ago - she's fine.  Friend in Scotland keeps having bits removed - has been having them removed for years.  She's fine - just keeps having check-ups.    If you've had it once you're usually monitored regularly.

However, that implies that it's 'nothing' - it's not, it can be serious and whoever has the diagnosis needs to take and act on medical advice -  anything we tell you on here is only our experience and isn't really going to help you. 

The best way of easing your worries is to know the facts and the only way you're going to get the facts is to talk to a doctor. ((hugs)) 

This might be helpful

However, this forum isn't the place for medical advice - it really isn't

A shallow stream - usually quite formal when used in garden landscaping terms nowadays, although I think it can refer to any pretty trickling watercourse.

Coffee Grindings

I've never thought that the caffeine might be strong enough to deter slugs and snails, but I've hoped that the gritty texture of the grounds might help to keep them away from my hostas

Good morning Lyn and Lesley

Did anyone see the moon last night?  It was beautiful

Lyn, I think there's some sort of competitive element at work - some people seem to need lots of posts on 'their' threads   That always puzzles me - if I start a thread I don't regard it as 'mine' - this forum is about sharing
