Izal toilet rolls were made in our village. ............Once a mega roll slid off a lorry and began to roll down the hill into the village. ............

That  could have wiped you all out

Some plants need more water than others.  Your hibiscus probably has enough water to grow, but producing flowers needs more water than merely growing.

My late sister in law had partial hearing loss - not diagnosed until she was 7 - at school she was made to sit at the back of the class where she couldn't hear the teachers.  

At the age of 9 she was sent to attend a boarding school for the deaf in Sussex - her parents were on a very low wage and couldn't afford the train fare to visit her so she only saw her family during school holidays.  

This wasn't in the Dark Ages, this was in the late 1960s - don't you just love the Good Old Days

Vinca will root anywhere the tips touch the soil - new little plants should be easy to find.

Izal was very good .....for putting over a comb to make a 'musical instrument'.

But as for using it anywhere else

Oooh, but didn't it make your top lip feel funny?

Or even squares of newspaper hanging from a nail in the outside two-seater privy - don't want to go back to  that either

...  Bekkie - courgettes taste better when home grown sliced and cooked in butter

I find the flavour of sage works well with courgettes - I like to make a courgette and sage tart.
