Was it Ryan's Opuntia that gave rise to Hosta singing the whole of Bare Necessities on here not long ago?

Hazel, when you get an email thread notification there are two links you can click on - the first one will take you to the thread and the second one will enable you to disable the notifications for that thread. 

If I want to disable it  I go straight to the second link and click on it - without clicking on the first link.  That seems to work for me.

So proud of my beautiful clever Wonks!!! 

I know how nervous she gets with exams and tests and stuff like that - it's absolutely brilliant that in the last few years she's married her lovely huh,  learned to control her nerves and get a really good degree and pass her driving test. 

Oh, and won a prize for gardening

Apparently Pa Womble is currently holidaying in Brazil - he'll have a surprise when he gets back  -  I imagine he's trying to dodge the mosquitos - and apparently he's going to be fumigated when he comes back

Lily P - Mighty Atom is a snowdrop which was discovered at Benhall in Suffolk, near my childhood home (not far from Sizewell 'atomic' power station).  Magnet is another snowdrop

Hello SuperShrimper

As Nut says, that's what they do in the first year - then the bulbs will multiply and you'll get more flowers next spring, especially if you take the seedheads off when the flowers die off.

Nut, you won't have to bother about the circumflex any more - I'm going to miss it tho

That's a very good point David - if someone wants to keep an eye on a thread they started, when it gets to around 1000 posts they can start a new one and ask Nora to lock the old one

As I said, for me any Chat-type threads I start are something that I feel I offer to the members to do what they like with (within the rules of the board of course ).  If a thread dies out after a few posts that's fine, and if it runs and runs like the proverbial Mousetrap, that's because of the forum members, not because of me

However, with David K's Sweet Pea threads it's important that they can be identified as his, because we're searching specifically  for his advice
