I watched the forst episode on catch up BBC i player. Brilliant. The bit about expecting dinosaurs to come out from the gunneras is exactly how I felt when I last went.

I've put the rest of the series on to record.

****** NHS box tickers. I need to vent

Posted: 11/11/2014 at 20:05

I spent five hours today, with dad at the hospital for pre op assessment. He promised the nurse he would try to eat a bit and drink more, and do a bit of exercise. When we got home , he went straight to bed, refused to eat or drink..the NHS is doing its best, but the family are made out to be lying bullies, and I've wasted two days so far this week, when dad wont even try to help himself

I probably ought to put this on the rant thread, I'm just so annoyed with him.

Kef, there is an apple shop in Meadowhell. The geeks in there can show you lots of things , and how easy everything is.

My first one was given to me on loan, with no instructions, dead easy to use, everything very intuitive, and after i took it back, I went straight out and bought one.

They are more expensive, but saves a lot of hair pulling out and frustration.

Having heard OH pulling his hair out after PC workstation crashed, I would always recommend that windows based computers are consigned to the compost heap , and indulge in an Apple product.

20 years of Apples and I've never had a problem,unlike PC's I have to use at work.

Anyway, surely Apples are best for gardeners.

Composting - where am I going wrong pls?

Posted: 10/11/2014 at 19:14

Actually,oldtimer, I think you'll find that a lot of us use recycled beer and wine in this way.

Even recycled tea and coffee the same way.

I encourage all males of the household to water the compost heap rather than traipsing muddy feet up stairs.
