stormy weather

Jolly blustery night, even here in the east - I've just been out to re-stake the windbreak fabric around the PSB - I'll do a proper fix when I'm dressed

We're going to go to Cromer later this morning and eat fish and chips in the cafe on the cliffs above the pier and watch the wind, waves and weather from behind strong glass - that's perfect entertainment for a day like this

Good morning all G'day Pat

Pdoc's stream must've been very loud in the night - it had me dreaming of rivers, streams, ponds, pools, bridges - and beautiful rainbow coloured talking fish   

It's very blustery, even here!  I've just had to go out into the garden in my jimjams and fix the windbreak stuff around the purple sprouting - only did a temporary job - I'll do a better fix when I'm dressed. 

Hope everyone else has got their hatches well battened down!!! ((hugs))

Edd, I've already cleared the cache - no change - and yes, it happens however I open it.

I get a message telling me that something about Google is unsafe and I may need to download a new 'root'     (You'd think a gardener could do that wouldn't you?)

Anyway, I've spoken to son who thinks he knows what to do so as I'm seeing him on Tuesday I'll take my laptop with me.  If he can't fix it I'll take it around to the shop I bought it from, which is near where son lives - I shall just have to be patient.

Great cake Fairy

Don't think it's hardy - I've only ever seen it grown as a house plant. 

Those little green knobbly things are the flowers.

If you cut a stem off  and put the leafy palm-tree like bit upside down in some water it'll grow some baby plants - that's what we did with them when we were children. 

We called it Umbrella grass

Thank you Hosta ((hugs))

I think I'm going to have to access Mozilla support next week - and I've got a really busy schedule next week

Huge firework display and big booms out there tonight!

Thanks Edd   sadly Firefox won't even let me access that site - the only way I can access this forum is to click on a link in the Newsletter in my email - it's all very frustrating.  When I get a chance I'll use OH's laptop and see what I can find out from that

But parents of children are young compared with a lot of us - I think that the reference was to older people, not people in their 20/30/40s - of course their loss is going to affect children.

More bad news in France. It is a Train this time. It just getting worse for them.


This seems to be a derailment due to excessive speed


Thanks for the link to the adblocker - however Firefox is not letting me access Google - something's amiss - any ideas?
