Punkdoc, correct me if I'm wrong, but I had understood that modern medical practice is to treat the patient in an holistic way, rather than regard him or her as an assemblage of discreet parts to be treated without much regard to the whole, as used to be the case with some surgeons many years ago. 


I think that is a rather neat analogy with good gardening practice, where leaves on a lawn may well have a role to play in the well being of the whole garden.

We've got lots of worms in our garden ... They take the leaves underground.

Hosta  H e says that initially it sounded quite alarming and he got out of bed to check that they weren't being attacked by cats ... But then he realised the cause of the squeals  and he got back into bed and left them to it

There have been helpful suggestions - several of them - but you've always got an excuse for not using it - so you're just going to have to carry on bending over and picking the stuff up then aren't you.
