Morning all, grey and damp.

Thanks for pm KEF, you are very wise and kind, although I would prefer to think of you as in Dove's cartoon!

Going to drag myself into town, to try and find pressies for OH.

Roll on the lighter days and my holiday in the sun in January.

I can assure you Pdoc, it's a very good photo of KEF

Now I have more time in the day, when I go into town I try to find a nice place to have coffee and sit by a window and people watch - don't know why but I always feel a bit better about myself afterwards

expensive???

You're right to avoid goats - they prefer shrubs to grass - but geese would be very happy cropping and fertilising your lawn, and think how much you could sell them for at this time of year!

Preposterous question....

While loath to blow my own trumpet, I do all the cooking in our house along with the bulk of the housework. The Christmas dinner will be prepared and cooked by yours truly 

Same here   I've also run two businesses, driven tractors and trucks, mended roofs, worked 'hands-on' in education, social work, the arts, farming and building amongst many other things ... whilst bringing up a family and working for two degrees.

I think the only thing that was affected by my gender was having my babies

....  One little correction; seed potatoes are not grown in lovely warm spots, rather they are produced in cold places where aphids don't thrive.

Traditionally Scotland produces the best virus-free seed potatoes.

Well there's these http://www.buzzfeed.com/hannahjewell/inventions-by-women-that-changed-the-world 

And then there's these http://www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0906931.html

Yes, a few are duplications of the first list - but only a few.

Plus women had to fight for their own emancipation whilst also fighting for the abolition of slavery - eg. Sarah and Angelina Grimke http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimk%C3%A9_sisters

I could go on ........... and on ........... and on.............
