I see that the sum total of yearly pensions that the Kinnock seniors will get, is more than most people could hope to have as a total pension pot in their lifetime. Bet they won't be helping the Welsh steel workers though. Kinnock junior has just resigned his position in the shadow opposition, distancing himself from Corbyn.

Punkdoc, show us your pics. I've never been on safari, it's on the list. Some neighbours went, they have some fantastic pictures.

Sounds wonderful, punkdoc.

When we came back from Papua New guinea last time, we had four flights and 36 hours of no sleep. I can't sleep sitting up. We got home and went straight to bed. At some point I woke up, looked at the wardrobes, and said " do you know, this hotel room has the same wardrobes as we have at home"

I still think that most of jet lag is lack of sleep. The only time I have got off a long haul flight and felt decent was the time I had a meltdown when I checked in at LA , was told the seats we had booked had been given to someone else, despite this being three hours before take off, and we ended up being upgraded to business. Lie flat seats.  Eight hours of sleep in a twelve hour flight. Bliss.

I see that most of the Labour shadow cabinet has resigned, and there are calls for the president of the Eu to resign, because they were so hard on us. I think that the aftershocks to the earthquake are still happening.  German car manufacturers have said they still want a free trade deal with us. Of course they do. That's all we voted for in 1975. We did not vote for a United states of Europe.

As someone said on question time last night...

The peasants are revolting and have just given the politicians a bloody nose. Now what are they going to do about it? 

All I see at the moment is a lot of headless chickens, scared for their jobs.

KT53, have you never heard of a wonga loan.  You can't afford the interest on the first loan, so we lend you some more to at the first lot back, and the interest is 12,000%

Making compost

I have used all green stuff, it just needs to be chunky so that it doesn't end up as a slimy mess of grass cuttings. Stirring it regularly with a fork helps too. If all I have is grass cuttings, I mix it well with the part rotted stuff below it.

I got six Thunbergia alata to grow from seed, I have planted them to use the Lily stems as sticks. Plan is the lilies will flower, then the climbing black eyed Susan will take over and flower until the frosts. I need a space for some Asarina to climb as well. A lot of plants, I grow as plugs in plug trays from seed. It saves pricking out and easy to drop into holes.
