Calm down, Edd.

Its to do with copyright issues and plagiarism.

I've  had pancakes with strawberries and coconut ice cream.

Very good dive this morning. We have progressed'll need a refresher course at $80 each (not a chance) to putting us in with the numpties for a dive. I asked what happened to my hours dive...well they arent all as good at diving as you he said. Today we got the select group, got an hours dive, twice ,and found a nice yellow seahorse. Result.

Have a good evening folks.

Ive just seen the news. I hope everyone is OK. Verdun, keep off the beaches. I'm sure spike will cope with a quickie in the back garden.

Clarington, its time your boss got the sack. Total incompetence. There is no reason whatsoever that he couldnt do a direct bank transfer ,unless there is no money in the account and he is stalling for time. I'm off to the managers cocktail party. Pina Colada, here I come.

Seedlings take about three years to flower. Dont give up hope yet.

Last year I cut them down to about a foot, and used all the side shoots as cuttings. They grew into good strong plants, better than seedlings.

DD, hubby had a heart attack when he was 40. Cue total reassessment of priorities. He still works away a lot, but earning money is not as important as it was. 

Squirrel Sabotage of my Wildflower meadow

Posted: 07/02/2016 at 23:53

Squirrel buster plus is excellent. I just bought a new one after a ten year onslaught.  One of them learnt how to unscrew the top. We had to make a  modification fastening the top down.

We have odd crocus coming up in the lawn. We never planted any. A neighbour planted a 1000 and he didnt get one. The squirrels either ate them or relocated them.

Please, if you have a trampoline in the garden, either sink it so the bed is at ground level, or net it. My friend is a radiographer. She gets to x ray an awful lot of kids who have come off trampolines.
