The only veg waste that doesnt seem to rot down is Avocado stones. Citrus peel, I always throw in the heap. Its a bit much around Christmas, but its fine so long as it is mixed up well with other stuff.

I changed my surname back to my maiden name when I got divorced. The solicitor handling the divorce said I could call myself anything I liked so long as it wasn't for fraudulent purposes. I started with my passport, and then most things such as bank and utilities followed. All I did was send a letter, along with a copy of the decree absolute and a copy of my birth certificate.  When I got married again, I stuck with my maiden name, far too much faff to change everything again.

On the other hand, it will give you a base for new turf.
