Dove Pete Duel   he was Haynes not Curry. I was a member of his fan club until he shot himself that new years eve  Ben Murphy didn't float my boat, only blonde I've lusted after was my OH 

You're right   It was a very long time ago   There were rumours of a man being seen running away ........

that was on ITV and we weren't allowed to watch ITV

Neither were we when we were children - our tv was so old it would only get BBC

but fortunately by the time Smith & Jones aired (note the laundry reference ) I was a newly married (teenage) bride and in charge of my own television

Oh no Dove OH will be gutted 



Hopefully he'll recover   I never went for blonds - it was always the dark haired one for me - remember Alias Smith & Jones?  Pete Duel as Kid Curry ............

Mine used to look like David Soul.....

I was a Starsky fan 

I rarely iron now that I'm retired and live in tee shirts and jeans - most things get folded as they come off the line and they're fine.  Going out clothes are the only ones that need ironing nowadays.

Hosta - my OH isn't the biggest toughest bloke in the world, but I've always thought he has a look of the younger Clint Eastwood about him

Advice on cutting back an overgrown hedge

Posted: 21/08/2015 at 16:26

The RHS advice is as follows:

"When undertaking work on garden hedges check that there are no birds nesting, as it is an offence under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 to damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built. The bird nesting season is usually considered to run from 1st March to 31st July (though it may last longer for certain species or multiple broods so always check if in doubt). "

Hope that helps

I'm worried ...............

Does anyone else suspect that Harlequin ladybirds may well have arrived in the UK as 'ecologically sound aphid predators' purchsed for commercial greenhouses
