Amazing foxglove

  I have a similar one in my garden, it's from seed sown this spring and planted out in the summer.  Mine's been flowering for a fortnight or so.  

Well, he won but.....

 He's touting to get the job as the US Ambassador to the EU - he's going to make sure the EU works for him, after having made sure it can't work for the rest of us

What also worries me is that some of the people who are really excited about Trump's victory are Marine Le Pen of France's Front National and the German Right-wing populist AfD who see his method as an example to be emulated.

Debra - I sincerely hope that your faith in DT is justified ... however I have deep fears that you may be wrong.  Time alone will tell.  Good luck to you and to the rest of us who will doubtless be affected by the fallout, of whatever ilk.

HELP! Pop-up Ads.

The change to the new layout has not been without its problems, but NoraGW and the team have worked hard to implement many of the improvements we've asked for.  I'm certainly finding uploading pictures much easier to do.  

It's the adverts that pay for the site, so I'm putting up with them.  Alternatively you could download an Ad-blocker - many people have found that very helpful and quite straightforward to do.  

Don't know why  you're getting pics and symbols to post randomly   don't think that's been a common problem.

Maybe send a message to NoraGW?

HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 09/11/2016 at 16:24

Hello again folks   Tennis was fine - just half a session - serving underarm and no probs.  Physio was pleased - did another lot of 'cupping' on an area where it's still a bit painful at night, and that's my lot of NHS treatment, but I can go back privately if anything needs tweaking.  

The weather has been really grim today - a chill and blustery wind and rain - but at least we've not had any snow.  Hope Wonky was wrapped up warm. 

Supper simmering on the hob - we'll have it with rosemary roasted crushed potatoes and lamb's lettuce.

Cat mess and veg patch!

Toxoplasmosis can remain active in the soil for up to 18 months.  

I've worked with children who have been terribly disabled in the womb because their mother contracted the infection whilst pregnant.  

I'm well past the age when I might become pregnant, but I use wire netting to keep cats from fouling my vegetable patch.  Any 'deposits' found anywhere in the garden are cleared up scrupulously and binned.

Part of the reason Trump got in was because of a backlash against the reality of a black president - the same demographic will never vote for a woman, especially not a black one.

Although only a portion of the Trump supporters are racist, they will now feel that having a majority vote with them and that their abhorrent views have been validated - there may be trouble ahead.
