Still got problems with Forum

Posted: 26/09/2013 at 19:55

Daniel knows about the issues and has replied on various other threads. The tech team are working on it and hoped to have sorted it by today but looks like it will be tomorrow now. Clearing your history seems to help as does submitting an empty post just to get to the latest ones - you can then edit or do another post.

Hang in there- it will be fixed!

Are T&M having a laugh!

You know that saying - if it sounds too good to be true- it usually is? ....

I think as long as they're out of really exposed windy sites they should be fine. It's cold winds  or severe frosts that tend to frazzle them a bit, but it doesn't usually see them off. There's a large sandstone house set back from the road near where I used to live and the front garden slopes down to the road and is shady with lots of trees. It's full of white paniculatas and they look stunning just now. Passed them today and they really glow. 

Good Evening FORKERS

archie that's way too  much cake and pudding for you - send it all up here. I ran out of shredded wheat so pud will be the ideal substitute 

Well done to  nephew  Verd - a b****y tough job.Good chance for you to practice your little smileys!  I'd better not send you any bulbs  - you might eat them by mistake and have to dial 999...

fidget  - I had a similar situation with my ex partner when he had a heart attack.  I can't fault the speed of arrival or the care given by all of them. Terrific. The best care I ever experienced though was when my Mum died. The way the doctor dealt with my Dad ( 89 at the time)  was outstanding and I think of him often and what a credit he is to the medical profession. Dad would have been 95 today.

Easy veggies and fruit

When my girls were small they had a playhouse and I made a window box which they could grow stuff in and I made some similar ones for the fence next to it and planted strawberries. They're easy to grow and don't take much looking after. Having them off the ground helps keep slugs etc away. Lettuce crops do well in containers of any type and actually do better not in full sun. Mange tout are easy and don't take up as much space as the bigger beans and peas. I used to grow them in amongst the ornamentals too.

My main bit of advice to you would be - don't grow anything that you don't actually enjoy eating!

Hi again cat- I just saw your other post and fidget's reply. She says it's common fumitory- Fumaria officionalis and the flowers provide a yellow dye.

They're hoping to get it sorted by end of today (Thursday) so don't give up hope all ye who enter here!! 

I clear  my history first then it seems to work if I do ctrl + f5. A pain though.
