Have I. Become a Victim?

I don't understand the relationship of the heading to the question being asked

However, the answer is in our own hands - I have learned so much from using the internet to answer my questions (as well as using my own books and the library) - the thing is not to stop when you get the answer, but to ask another one - why, how, when etc, and go on and on researching the subject. 

It's not the tools; it's the way you use them.

What you need is 'satiable curtiosity

Copper beech foliage in spring is indeed a glorious coppery colour

 but in the summer it darkens to a dark purplish colour


I love the Royals......

Look what I've just read "And Turner, who set female fans’ pulses racing last Sunday by skinny dipping, said: “Cornwall is a great place and we’re coming back in September."

And when are we holidaying in Cornwall?  ........ September!!!  and where?  You've got it, right in the middle of the area used for filming the Nampara Estate and the tin mine

Good morning all

We're going to head off to the coast in a bit   I know there's lots to do in the garden and it's going to rain the rest of the week, but we just feel the need for a good stomp on the beach etc ......
