HELLO FORKERS AUGUST EDITION

Ooh Liri - you have my sympathy - I'm not the best sailor! 


Sympathy to Brian Rix's family. He was a great advocate for those with learning disabilities. He wanted to slip away quietly ... I hope he did. 


Going to bed now. Alarm set for 1:20 am so I can cheer Mo home ...

I know Hosta - it's so sad - but it was bound to happen - some people are so distanced from nature and weather and tides and winds etc - they seem to think that every holiday destination is just like Center Parcs - all risk assessed and safe.


Also some people are so used to all experiences being second or even third hand - mediated via a screen of one sort or another, that they really don't understand the possible dangers of reality.

Past experience certainly leads several of us to believe that they can be very economical with the plants they sell for quite substantial sums

Hmm - now I've found this

which is certainly a standard - but as I said, yours has growth from lower down on the stem.

Are you sure these are 'standards'?  The one on the right certainly has growth coming from low on the stem.

where the care instructions differ from those you quote 


How far from the fence are your trees planted?  They look far too close to me - magnolias can grow into huge trees

I'm sure he had no idea that other people were selling rubbish kitchens purporting to be in his name - perish the thought!!!   I'm sure he's a good boy and his mother loves him ................

I think you should still let the police know about this incident, even if there's nothing they can do at the moment - it helps build a picture in case something happens that necessitates their involvement. 


Good luck.

Seems a waste of good alcohol if they can't do anything more creative with it than that
