Hasn't happened for months and months - total PITA but they've obviously found a way through the system that's been put in place to keep them out - the techies will sort it out again and plug the hole 


If we get a lot of them sometimes it's helpful to bump up other threads onto the top of the first page - it helps move the spam down the line quicker

From past experience, the best way to deal with the Spam is for whoever reports it to the Mods first, just post on the thread that it's been reported, then no one else post on that thread, then it'll move down the page and disappear quickly.

 If we keep posting on them it'll keep them on the front page, which is what they want.

Yes, report odd threads to the Mods.

If anything else odd occurs email the web team on this address 

We used to have problems with spam, it's been quiet for a while but it was bound to happen again.  It'll get sorted. 

Just don't click on anything you don't recognise.

Hello folks  I'm back from my day out with son and then visit to Aged Ps.  Now my feet are up and I'm outside of a large G&T.  

OH says we have coconut and lime icecream for a late evening nibble

Philippa - I know what you mean - we get both in this garden and sometimes I think 'Was that a wren, or ...........'

I usually have a listen to the audio file on here and then find the wren and listen to that one and then all becomes clear again 

Leaking Oak Barrel

The problem with wooden barrels is that when they're empty the wood shrinks - hopefully the wood should swell now that it's wet and the joints should soon tighten up again.  

Not desperately practical in a climate like ours when we can't keep the barrel permanently full

Mike, what a nuisance!  But the others are right - you should report it, even if it's just for 'statistics' - it all contributes towards local traffic planning etc if nothing else.

Sometimes you can feel a bit targeted can't you?  My son's had several really horrid/sad things happen to him lately, and then his beloved red Alpha (elderly but cherished and shiny) was hit not once but twice, whilst parked in different car parks. The first one is going through the insurers, although the other party, after admitting liability is now denying it - although how it can be son's fault when the car was stationary and the engine switched off and he has witnesses and photographs I fail to see!  I think she's just scared of her husband.

 The second one was a hit and run, although witnesses saw the van driver get out of the van and repeatedly kick son's car to disengage his wheel arch from the front of son's car and number plate - all details were given to the police but as it happened on private property they said it's not a RTA offence so they're not interested - not even when it turned out that the van driver was uninsured - they said they couldn't prove that he'd driven it on the road - even though there was a witness saying he saw him get back into the van and drive off, and they really weren't interested in proceeding against him for Criminal Damage - too much paperwork!!!  Fortunately son has No Claims Bonus Protection on his insurance, but I bet it will still put premiums up!

Life's not fair - but we know that anyway - otherwise my runner beans would have germinated

Lily - Clari's OH forgot to book a day off work to celebrate his birthday, so all her plans have had to be shelved 

On the other hand, Clari booked a day off so she has a day of peace and quiet in the garden ............
