Thinking of growing a Cob Nut tree

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 16:08

Question 1. Are there grey squirells in the vicinity. If so, dont bother. I have quite a few hazels in the hedge. They set nuts every year. Every year the squirrels eat them before they are ripe enough  for us to eat.

Ha, love it Dove.

I have been known to extract up to £15 from a man suffering from Manflu,whilst on a one hour Sunday Rota, (like we used to do before the supermarkets decided to have 24 hours opening and shove a pharmacy in the corner by the booze aisle.)

Mansize tissues, obviously, preferably those with extra soft or added balm.

A hot drink type thing(works better in a special mug). probably some lozenges or a throat spray. Some Vitamin C to aid recovery. Olbas oil or Vick Rub.  A bottle of Lucozade. Sorry, cant help with the bell or the nurse holding a towel to wipe the fevered brow.

 Womanflu---- Two paracetamol four times a day, keep warm and drink plenty of liquid. If bunged up,  a sudafed tablet  three times a day.

Afternoon everyone Blue skies and sunny here.  I seem to have spent all day in supermarkets, but the freezer is now full,the fridge is full, the fruit bowl is full, and the biscuit tin is full.I shouldn't have to go shopping for a bit.

I heard Jeremy Vine on the radio. 300 million to India when they have enough money todo a space program? Maybe they could spend the space money on the starving indians living in slums, and we could spend 300 million on the south west of the country and our infrastructure. Our roads are like a third world country. IF they were repaired properly they would last longer.

Time to call a state of emergency and send in the armed forces., and every ablebodied man on unemployment benefits to help with labour and get the mess sorted out.

 Failing that there are a few fat cats in London who need fairygirls wand up the rear end.
