The white ones are Hymenocallis, also called peruvian daffodil. They are part of the amaryllis family.

Got drunk at a live show. As she said, she doesnt normally drink after cancer treatment, she hadnt slept for 24hours, and had a bit of a meltdown when her dogs when missing. One rule for  Jonathan Ross and Russel Brand, another for Those with health problems like Bill Oddie.

If you take a cutting of about 15cm, and just stand it in water, it will root. You can try both the water method and the soil method, you should be able to get loads of cuttings off of that plant. The original plant will shoot again, just add a spoonful of phostrogen or baby bio to the water when you water it.

It makes me laugh when politicians were against people having their own money to look after. I think if you have saved all your life, you're not likely to waste it  just because you've turned 60.

These were the same politicians that thought it a great idea to pay housing benefit to the tenant rather than the landlord. Tenant spends it, doesn't pay the rent, gets evicted and then there's another problem. At least if rents were paid direct, the tenant would still have a roof over their head. Before someone goes ballistic, I'm not suggesting all tenants do that, but drug addicts, alcoholics, and those incapable of handling a budget do, and some just play the system.

I signed it. my pittance of a private pension comes at 60. First they moved my state pension to 63, then 65, now 67. I already had a letter saying I have done 35 years full time , so accrued enough NI.  Now I find that the "full pension" we were promised won't be because they take some off because of the private pension.

Wouldnt it be fairer to say if you have enough contributions, you can retire? A lot of men with physical jobs cant keep going to 67. The joiner across the road from me is  cream crackered at 57.

I might draw it all out and but a second hand ford  fiesta.  Anyone got enough for a lamborghini?
