Good morning Pat   You snuck in there while I was typing - yes, I had a bit of a lie-in and OH brought me my first mug of coffee in bed, rather than me coming down and doing the honours!

Good morning all

The migrant situation is sadness and desperation beyond belief - we have to do something to help, and it has to be done in a positive organised way, not reluctantly and piecemeal - so that those who come here have the support they need to integrate and feel part of the communities they have fled to, rather than become alienated and resentful - otherwise there will be generations of trouble ahead for Europe as well as the Middle East.

And Hostafan - get your point

Same here Tetley............... remember taking stilletos off to run down the road, cos I had to be in by 12 ............. and the bus back from town got in at 5 to.......... 

In by 12??? I had to be in by 10!!! and the gorgeous boyfriend was taking me to Diss Cornhall to see the Tremeloes and his car broke down on the way and we had to push it home and I never got to see them and we were late and I got a telling off and the parents never believed that we hadn't seen the band

Just love C. Vince Denny - not seen that before.

Hello folks - got the car back in full working order and checked over for our holiday- they charged less than they said over the phone!  I shall use them again. 

I've just had a sandwich for lunch and now I'm yawning - why does eating bread always make me feel tired

Do you speak flower?
