Good morning all   ((Hugs)) for those that need them today - looks like we've got some wounded soldiers amongst us and our families 


Please help ID these trees.

3 might be a fruit tree of some kind, but hard to tell from those photos I'm afraid.

There are some areas where the numbers of grey squirrels are in need of some sort of humane control - the damage they do to garden bird populations is huge - you know they rob the nest of eggs and nestlings

Hi all.

I don't get my state pension until I'm 66. and some months.

........................... What happened to the idea that we all retire early, make jobs for the young, and attend courses pre-retirement to learn how to adjust and fill your time?  


No government was prepared to be honest with us about how much we'd have to pay into the State Pension for that to happen ....... they relied on the profits from oil and gas and that got sold off cheap 

Right, off to work for a bit longer - have a good day folks - I've watered the toms, but can you keep an eye on the plug plants I pricked out the other day please  - they're in a shady place on the terrace - Cheers!

I do hope not Sue - that's why it's good that people who get steamed up about these things can press that ignore button if they want to.
