Hoorah for the Paralympics

Posted: 09/09/2016 at 18:53

I find some of the groups  confusing. I know each group is supposed to be equal disability, but I watched a butterfly swim race. 5 had one arm, one had no arms, and the winner had two arms., that both seemed to work properly.

 I also find it heartbreaking, that the reason we have so many brilliant para athletes is the fact that many of them had bits blown off , "peace keeping" in the middle east. I think I would have given up long before. The problems that these have overcome humbles me.

Why do threads get taken down?

A bit like a fake review.

 New poster A who has never posted before  asks if anyone has used XYZ services.

Another new poster B pops up to say they are brilliant. A third new poster C posts a link to XYZ services who have a special offer on.

A, B and C usually work for XYZ services and  have a conversation with themselves.

All designed to lure someone in.

Fortunately this forum has a lot of regulars with excellent Bull poo detectors.

My tulips tend to fade away after three years anyway.

tulips naturally grow in rocky  soil that gets baked in the sun. I see no problem. give it a go.

Are you bringing them back in soil with roots, or as cuttings? Cuttings need to be shaded until they have formed roots. Bringing in plants in soil could bring all sorts of diseases into the country.

Plant identification please

The blue one has flowers like a lithodora or lithospermum, but the leaves don't look right.

The builders bags that are approx 1 m cube hold a tonne of gravel etc. I would consider 4 cubic metres to be 4 tonnes.

I bought one last year in Lidl. I repotted it and it went crackers.  It spent the winter in my mums conservatory, then got chopped, and is currently on a 4 ft pyramid. Not bad for 4.99
