The Terms & Conditions and Code of Conduct have always been there - most people understand why and abide by them.

Verdun, I think it was Lyn who pointed out the other day that downloading Chrome will restore the toolbar. It's certainly helped several forum members.

Putting 'alum slugs gardening' into Google brings up nothing at all, so if there are gardeners out there using it successfully they're certainly not talking about it - that doesn't make me very hopeful that it works.

A bit more reading reveals that exposure to low levels of alum can cause serious lung damage, neurological disease and some cancers.

Clari, Wonky told me that the crocuses in her pots were doing that!  Turn them around I said.  A couple of days later they'd evened up

We've got some lovely pink fluffy clouds - just like candyfloss

Good morning all  G'day Pat

Re my Tasmanian cousins ... my aunt tells me that there's going to be a tv programme about how they and the community of Dunalley have rebuilt their lives following the devastation of the bush fire.  Don't know when tho'.

Yesterday was chilly, the temperature didn't get above 7.9C all day - the low overnight was 4.1C in my sheltered back garden.

BLizzie - hope you're beginning to feel 'at home' in Norfolk. 

 

We've had our crispy duck pancakes - now we're too full for our sweet ones but the batter has been made and is waiting, so we'll have a rest and I'll make them in a while.

Hosta, it's egg in the middle wrapped in a mixture of sausage meat and black pudding.  I bought these from Waitrose's deli counter   but I usually get these  http://www.handmadescotcheggs.co.uk/scotch-egg-menus/handmade-scotch-eggs

as they're stocked by a shop local to Ma's Lovely Home.
