Good morning all

Well done Panda   Never mind Runnybeak - ham salads are to blame for a lot of things

A lovely morning here - 14C at the moment and climbing - it got up to 28.6C in the shade here yesterday

Such a shame......

That's a valiant try by your hubby Pat   but last year's result and yesterday's score are not comparable  The Australian High Commissioner in London was interviewed on R4 last night - he coped with admirable fortitude apparently he has tickets for Sunday - the Fourth Day - he said he'd probably take his hiking boots and go for a walk

I like to think that Pa and Richie Benaud who both went to that great Cricket Stand in the Sky within a few days of each other earlier this year, will have had a lot to talk about - and that Pa will have enjoyed having the upper hand

Soz Dove forgot your shopping  Mum's dad died this day in 1936 in a pit disaster she was eight so been quite a sad day as she is getting older things like that seem to emerge and hugs needed. Extra cream bun helped

LillyP - you'll be fine - they'll support you - a young person I used to work with was claustrophobic - she also had uncontrolled epilepsy and cerebral palsy with associated learning disabilities - she thought she'd be scared, but she managed it without a meltdown - you'll do it too ((hugs))

Dove Yes, he is from a Hereford Bull, by AI. We will keep him until he goes in the beef ring at market. Some of the Hereford X heifers we might be keeping as our son wants to do sucklers.

Thought so   we used to keep Hereford x bullocks on the small-holding - four at a time - always called Eeeny Meeny Miny and Mo - fabulous beef

It's ok, humans don't catch mosaic virus

Are you sure about the diagnosis - plants with mosaic virus don't usually crop well?
