Good morning Chicky   it gladdens my heart too   Split infinitives have long been thorns in my side   (that's not to say that I don't split them myself of course, but only when required for artistic purposes).

Think it's going to rain on Thursday, according to the forecast ... what the heck! 

But we'll have to make sure Panda stays warm and dry, with her chest!  I think warms drinks, cakes and scones will be compulsory - on health grounds don't you know! 

Oooh!  They do proper lunches too ......Hot soup and jacket tatties - that's what we'll need!

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

I've just heard from brother - he's in Alice Springs heading for Uluru - apparently it's 'quite hot' ... he's heading for Tassie next week.  

Edd - that's so sweet - love Saint-Saens   Try him with Britten's Young Person's Guide next?   When I was very little I was very keen on Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kijé (I loved the story as well as the music) and Peter & the Wolf of course.  Also some of the music for Coppelia - there's some very accessible stuff out there for youngsters.  My son says he always feels 'funny inside' when he hears Greig's Peer Gynt Suite - I used to play it a lot when I was pregnant with him 

Hosta, hope all goes well today ((hugs))


I usually have no problem in growing Morning Glory - I grow it up tepees of bamboo canes - I've even known it self-seed in my last garden which was a north-facing inner city 'yard'.  The trick is not to plant it out too early or the leaves turn white and it's stunted.  



Unusual behaviour of Magpies

Edd - I remember reading that too - sort of starter nests which will only be finished when the female makes her choice and the finish the nest together.

Inspiration needed.
