Develop a taste for it, encourage it, determine to eat it

I've discovered that as soon as a plant discovers that you actually want it to grow so that you can eat it, it does all it can not to grow

Stupid question but I thought pilates was a type of yoga..?

Similar but different - pilates doesn't involve the held positions that yoga does, and sometimes also uses equipment.   It was invented by someone but can't remember who ...

Wow, stayed in Gourock, You're way too posh for me. 

It was a bit!!!  All the guests stayed in one hotel - the morning after the wedding several of us, plus bride and groom went on a little ferry and rode bikes around an island and saw eider ducks and other wildlife .... and I got a terrific suntan

Wonky, that suggestion from Lily P is spot on - silver dressings - I remember that's what the pharmacist gave us when you had that 'light bulb burn' in your teens! 

LilyP  bdooly backs eh!  ((hugs)) Anyone would think we weren't designed to walk upright We have 'backs' in our family and 'backs' in OH's family as well as friends 'with backs'.  I think OH and I are the only people we know 'without backs' ...... so far, touch wood!!!  And then even I did my back in three days before Wonky's wedding and spent the day doped up on painkillers!!!  But that was muscular caused by cleaning the windows - I won't make that mistake again

I'm like Hosta, I have 'a knee'  instead of 'a back'.

Fancy you coming from Greenock Hosta one of the few places in Scotland I've been to - I went to a friend's wedding there a while back - we stayed in Gourock for a few days before and after the event
