I think the worse thing about module trays is they provide board and lodging for slugs.

Where is my grass?

Calm down, Edd.

All you have to do is put a link in to something else on the web, instead of cut and paste.

Very good dive this morning. We have progressed'll need a refresher course at $80 each (not a chance) to putting us in with the numpties for a dive. I asked what happened to my hours dive...well they arent all as good at diving as you he said. Today we got the select group, got an hours dive, twice ,and found a nice yellow seahorse. Result.

Have a good evening folks.

Ive just seen the news. I hope everyone is OK. Verdun, keep off the beaches. I'm sure spike will cope with a quickie in the back garden.

DD, hubby had a heart attack when he was 40. Cue total reassessment of priorities. He still works away a lot, but earning money is not as important as it was.
