Hi Pat - best thing to do is to put some music on the radio and keep our brains occupied. ((hugs)) 

Technical improvements to the forum

If you use the Search facility you can select whether you want to search the whole site, articles, plants or the forum. 

While you were away Edd, there was a consultation of members by the GW team, also some members visited the offices and worked with the team on possible improvements which may feature in the upgrade.  It's a huge job - hopefully we'll be noticing differences by the spring.

Good morning all G'day Pat

A very sad day - our thoughts are with friends in France and all those affected.

I'm blaming Topbird, she's a bad influence - large G&T taken here - VERY LARGE  having been doing 'hard sums' with my pension chap I think I've earned it, even if I've had to sit down rather suddenly

However he's assured me I don't have to stand on street corners down by Carrow Road this winter - there may come a time if I live long enough

Did someone say Edd has a sense of humour

It's my birthday

Just a suggestion...

If aspirin will work against tomato blight, I wonder if it will work against peach leaf curl?

Hello Gertie - I can see you - sorry you're feeling ignored   Don't think you've upset anyone - you're far too nice to upset people - just sometimes some of us don't remember to respond to everyone individually - I'm afraid I'm one of the worst at that - I tend to talk to everyone at once a lot of the time and hope people feel included.

Have a sit on the sofa and a cuppa with me
