Quite so Hosta   and consequently now would seem the perfect time to cut ourselves adrift from our European neighbours with whom we share a lot of common interests, and become even more dependent on the US  ........

 

Perhaps I'd better explain that my tongue is very firmly in my cheek and I'm using irony (which of course few Americans understand).

and now, I'm really not going to talk about it any more

Hi John

Check your Contact Preferences in My Settings and make sure that you've enabled (and saved) email contact from GW. 

If that doesn't work contact the team (Contact us at foot of this page) and I'm sure they'll find out what's up.

The website is undergoing an upgrade/revamp at the moment, so there may be some blips happening that they're not aware of.

Sounds like everyone has a good weekend planned

Can someone look at the Crape Myrtle thread - I can't ID the bugs

 

Edited to say:  I've managed to enlarge the pic and I still don't know what they are

Good morning all   G'day Pat

A bit late on parade this morning, but I've been out there hanging washing out, taking advantage of this gorgeous sunshine. 

Topbird, the Greek theme for our meal is because our guest is veggie  - I wanted a meal that I could cook ahead as I'm not sure what time she's arriving; she's a pretty high-profile journalist and is giving a lecture at the UEA this afternoon,  when she does get here bottles will be uncorked and lots of nattering will be done.  I thought  Greek-ish food would fit the bill, and Spanakopita is also one of OH's favourites.  Pud will be warm figs with chestnut honey and Greek yoghurt.    It certainly seems to have encouraged the sun to shine too

Hmm  It's been dull and overcast here ... just as well it was a cooking day. 

Spanakopita, Gigantes plaki , Baba Ganoush and frittata made all ready for supper tomorrow when friend arrives - I'll make some hummus and a tomato salad tomorrow and retrieve some appropriate bottles from the garage  ......... I'm likely to be AWOL for several hours from 4pm tomorrow   ..........  speak quietly on Sunday morning please

If you're only wearing gloves and a woolly hat no wonder you're cold - you should put a vest on! 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 26/02/2016 at 15:33

When I came in from my shopping expedition I noticed that the viticella clematis by the front door was growing new shoots and I'd not cut it back, so I grabbed the secateurs and chopped it down to knee level - I gave the buddleia its proper pruning - so a little bit of gardening done on what was supposed to be a cooking day
