I remember Aberfan so clearly - my cousins lived nearby and my aunt was a teacher at a S Wales village school.  Absolutely horrendous

what to plant now

Posted: 21/10/2016 at 07:27

Not a lot can be planted at this time of year, but now is the perfect time to sow broad beans variety Aquadulce 'Claudia', to overwinter and provide an earlier crop than spring sown seeds. I shall be sowing mine today.

Ah, clicked send too soon ... P'doc, I know what you mean by needing the 'fix' of the drama - I used to work in the arts - the quieter times of preparation then the highs of performance gave me a buzz. - not like yours but a buzz just the same.

Later on there was a buzz when I was working in child protection - when one of 'those' phone calls came and I was out on a visit with the police I got that same buzz - it didn't mean that I was glad a child was needing protection - just that I worked well in that heightened situation.  

Couldn't have done it day after day - no wonder so many people burn out - but my role meant that there were quiet periods followed by a spell of highly intensive work and it suited me.   There have to be people who get something out of those situations - people who didn't wouldn't be able to do the job.

P'doc - ((hugs))  I don't think there's any such thing as total altruism - we all get something back - it doesn't mean that the act is any the less for that

You'd think they'd be like scones, but they're much lighter and crisper - more like a pastry than a scone.
