Saw Mr Petty many years ago Dove. He was stunningly brilliant.   The J du P programme would have been a repeat I expect - Sky Arts channel. You can't have Placido Dove - I saw him first...

I don't have an i pod ( or an 'aye' pod ) so I have to take a radio or cd player outside with me but I'm also very aware of keeping it at an acceptable level.

He'd make a good roast though Dove.....

trillium's right - sandpaper the area a little, to get a key, as well before you apply anything 'sticky'.

But there's more of him to go round Dove so he's good value 'pound for pound'..........

Looks a bit like the ornamental pear - Pyrus salicifolius. It's a very pretty small tree - gets to a few metres or so  height and spread but you can prune it. I had one in a previous garden

I'm a bit like Dove - it could be almost anything from James and Joni to opera - too many to mention but definitely Placido  (who I'm secretly in love with    )  or Mozart (ahh the Clarinet Concerto - Jack Brymer recording) or Oscar Peterson  or Andre Previn (playing Gershwin - Dad was a jazz musician) or Stevie Wonder or Tom Petty or Elton or ....and so it goes on.  I mainly keep the louder stuff for when I'm driving though!

Dove did you see the programme about Jacqueline du Pre recently? Another huge talent taken too soon. She was superb.

If all else fails - a sniper on the top of your shed should do the trick Duncan...

I'm kidding - just in case the 'literal' police are reading 

I mentioned quince Janet - it's a lovely shrub isn't it? I fancy the white one  for my back fence if I can squeeze one in somewhere. Nice for early spring when it's a wet dreary day and I'm inside looking out!

Good luck with it Duncan, whatever route you go down. It's possibly best to build a defence and not get too involved in case you get targeted. Wrong I know, as bullying should not go unchallenged, but ignorance in others is very hard to deal with successfully. We're all here to support you with it and offer help anyway.
