Good morning, Dove. Happy Birthday to our other halves.

Is there any coffee or just that funny moisturiser. ?

If its the yellow allium moly, the bulbs proliferate like crazy. Dig up and bin.

Good morning, Pat and Edd.

A years worth of tablets, Edd!!!!  Still, better than elephantiasis of the gonads.

Pat, like you, I keep well away from snakes, especially in Oz. My friend over there told me not to creep about in woodland, but stomp so the vibrations warn the snake and it slithers away. The worse snake is a startled snake, it lashes out in defence.  I do find sea snakes interesting, very poisonous but only small mouths, you would have to poke it with a finger to get bit.

I'm up early because last night I binged on a whole tub of salted caramel haagen daz ice cream. Not a good idea. I feel a bit sick...

About three years to flowers, although some one year old seedlings nut sent me, flowered the following spring. I grow them on in pots until the corms are the size of a £2 coin.

Its probably too hot and dry. Keep it away from draughts and radiators.  Citrus prefer to be on the slightly damp and cool side in winter.

I feel really aggrieved that a soldier who had two legs and an arm blown off had to go to Australia and pay £90,000 to get prosthetic legs. I think that anyone in his position should get what it takes to give him some semblance  of a reasonable life, without having to fork out for it himself. 

Did I miss the grass thread?   Only to be expected, it is Friday.

OH has been at Drax power station today. It took him two hours to get on site. Firstly health and safety took exception to his beard, in case he was required to do a job requiring breathing apparatus.  Then they said he couldnt possibly work there as he has a nut allergy. This is because they burn biomass which might contain peanut waste. Err well firstly , be isn't doing a job requiring breathing apparatus. Second hes allergic to brazil nuts ,peanuts are not nuts, they're legumes. Eventually he got exceptions. He got a very odd look from security on the way out. How did you get in there with that beard?  Well its a tossup between  beard stays or no job. Suit yourself.
