Have you tried asking your boss about them

Any suggestions please.

I know you said you did not want a trellis but have you thought about vertical pallet planters They are very affective and can have casters/wheels on the bottom so they can be moved easily. You can then grow just about anything you want.

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 06/09/2014 at 23:16

Hi all. 

So with the promise of some work with old friends and a trip of a life time. I set off from Liverpool on the Miller to the Azoures! It was a 3 masted schooner but has fallen on hard times and is being done up in different parts of the world under new owners (west country last). The 3 masts were 2 (hence the restep job) and it was fire damaged and it did not have its bell any more!!! ( i should have stopped at that point) Just a  blip, i thought and it would all be sorted out in a week or two, with my help. 

 The promise of sun soaked days, desert-like landscapes and volcanic mountains again, sounded good to me as i needed the break and had promised myself i would do it again if all was well.

 

 So i do request to know which one of you sent the maelstroms from day one??? I was only sick for two weeks and a further two days land sick!!!! (did not know that even existed)   That was not a good start. Things were just not right from the start so i said i would head back because my LO started school this week and i wanted to see it. They said the sea would be level and it would be calm. 

 

So who sent over the two hurricanes, you know the ones that have brought you nice weather??? High pressure might bring sunshine to you in land but you need to see what it does on the sea with the winds.

The sea was level as they said, unfortunately it had 20 metre bumps in it, just like most of my lawns! Back out again next week! god help me.

 

There is no internet on the island out there and everything is on generators so no plug attachments work!  Strange thing is i'm looking forward to it!!! 

 

Looks like we have been hit by the dreaded blight while i have been away. Hope you all have had a better end to the summer and from what i hear it might last a bit longer. Hope you all enjoy.

 

Kind regards

 

Edd.

Thanks hun.

(i bet it costs)  not for me..

 

Perhaps some of you could come up with 10 things to do and visit before we die??? 

Now that would be something.

 

Isn't nature wonderful? 

 

We all have our own secret places. Would you like to share??? Of course not what was i thinking! They are your places and yours alone.

 

Try. Venezuela's Catatumbo river as it has 3'600 flashes per hour!!!!

Its my next on the list! ( if i can afford)

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 30/07/2014 at 00:21

Hi all.

Back from surgery on my head and it looks like everything is the same here as it was before ( sorry). 

I was doing work with the Malcolm Miller and promised my self that if all was ok then i would take a trip with them. Its a tall 3 masted sooner that helps people explore the world.  So im off to the Azores!  (or a little island to the south, of it on a half voyage.) I promised myself i would do this if i came out ok. So its a long time thing that has taken alot of arranging.

I hope to be back before Christmas, as that would be cruel to my LO. 

OH, its a  good thing as i have contacts over there and i have work there ( as long as it lasts?) 

I will miss all your summer photos and new pond experiments but i will find new and exciting things in a new zone on this planet. (worms are a big part of course.)

Hope to see you all before Christmas and hope you all have a perfect time.

(not sure if i will have any internet connection at all, over there, but there is lots of diving and sun!!!!

"gan canny, man"

Regards

Edd.

Hi again Mike.

Can i have permission  to alter the above statement for those who do not have grass? 

I hope for it to be funny (only time will tell, with that) and that it is no disrespect to you but i would like your consent to alter it and hope you find it funny and like it too.

What i am trying to say is would you mind if i take the piss out of the above statment as long as i do not cause offence to you as it is not meant. Bugger me im sh*t with words????

Any objection. Mike ? Just say.

Regards

Edd.
