A friend of mine got a pig cake for his girlfriends birthday. Only it didn't have a face, just a rear end with a curly tail in the middle. Everyone except his girlfriend thought it was funny. They split up two weeks later.

I ordered an extra stand for the greenhouse today, complete with 15 seed trays.

 Mainly because the benches are already full.

I wonder if I could get some high level shelves in?

Tea and biscuits anyone?.

I showed OH the chillis, Stacey, he thinks you photoshopped them.

It reminds me of when we used to sell a capsaicin cream called "Fiery Jack" (a rubbing cream for arthritis). We used to tell the men they had to wash their hands BEFORE they went to the toilet.......

I did wonder if its time to start a new thread for chat, and abandon the "forkers "title altogether. I think it has been spoilt .

We could move into a virtual log cabin for a fresh start.( The potting shed won't be big enough) 

Dove said to me that she would be OK with that. However I don't want to start one and have the divisions we had when the old morning and evening forkers threads were abandoned.

What does everyone else think?
