Must have been something I said Joyce  

Privacy ideas

That's often the best solution for an upper window if you feel a bit vulnerable - a few attractive shrubs and a small pergola/screen is more efficient than trying to physically block a window. 

You'd need something very large to do that - which is seriously counter productive!

Or maybe visit 'kellsnake' - his wife is having the same issue apparently....

Or maybe they're twins...

Nut - round here it's willowherb and bittercress that's holding it together!

Morning all / afties Pat  

Happy Star Wars day - how many people will vote for Chewbacca do you think?  He couldn't do a worse job! 

I can sympathise Wonks - spent many days soaked to the skin in my previous job. Very wearing. I think it's why I hate wellies now! 

Another steady looking day here, but still that breeze. I don't care what it does though - because I looked out the window this morning to see these two  

I see the spammers have been out again - I'm afraid I'm losing the plot now and may say something I'll regret! 

Off for a quick look round before another fun filled day at work.....have a good day all

Monstrous? Bit over the top.....

I don't want to live in a mud hut or a cave foraging for twigs and berries, thanks. I like a shower in the morning, put clothes on and have my breakfast (using the electricity to cook it) before I drive to work to earn the money to pay the bills and indulge in my hobbies. It also pays the taxes which in turn pay for all the services we use in life. I grew up in the hippy era. Nice ideal - but a load of old b***ocks. 

We all 'play God' in everything we do. Even if we think we don't. It's naive to think the world is any other way.

Doesn't surprise me Joyce. You'd think they'd notify people by email instead nowadays, but I think the system's not fit for purpose  

Everywhere looks good for the weekend! There's two at Glen Lochay I've not done and it's a boggy old route, so it would be a good time to do those. Spoiled for choice

Hi Ellen - thank you for letting us know. How very sad. I didn't know he was ill - but I saw his posts regularly. He obviously did love his gardening, and it's nice to know he enjoyed being a part of the forum. 

He thanked me privately for some advice I once offered and it was kind of him to do that. It's always appreciated. 

Much love to all those he's left behind x
