Yes, if you're quick.  I bought 2 packets on offer.

I've just had an exceedingly good almond slice with my afternoon coffee.

Well it comes in with one hand and goes out the other.

My complaint about the time it was taking to transfer my pension had two effects. It was transferred three days later. Today I got an apology for their poor service, it will be used as a training exercise apparently. I also received a £200 cheque by way of compensation

The garage phoned. My car failed its MOT with another broken spring, and it needs a new tyre. So the £200 and more besides has just gone out again. Apart from that it's good for another year.

What Sedum is this?

They all look alike at that stage. When it flowers, send us another photo.  I would snip off all the brown bits now.

I saw a photo of the sturgeon next to one of Jimmie Krankie yesterday. Spitting image or what.

Re the arguments. Over a year or two we have lost a lot of forum members. Many of whom I miss. I think everyone has a part to play and something to offer. A larger forum has a much bigger joint knowledge base. Just stop the wind ups and bickering. It's not necessary. If you don't like someone just press the Ignore button.

The Red Phone

Nicola Sturgeon, Donald Trump, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for.

The Devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin calls Russia and talks for 5 minutes.

When he was finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a cheque.

Next Donald Trump calls the U.S. and talks for 30 minutes.

When he's finished the devil informs him that the cost is 6 million dollars, so Trump writes him a cheque.

Finally Nicola Sturgeon gets her turn and calls Scotland for 4 hours. When she's finished, the devil informed her that there would be no charge and feel free to call Scotland anytime.

Putin and Trump go ballistic and ask the devil why Nicola Sturgeon got to call Scotland free.

The devil replied, "Since Nicola Sturgeon became First Minister of Scotland , the Country has gone to hell, so it's only a local call."

Use gritty ericaceous compost, or you can get special citrus compost at some garden centres.

Put in a pot a couple of inches larger than the existing rootball.  Putting it in a much larger one is not necessary.

We've had it all today. Sun, hail, rain, cloudy and cold.

I managed to repot some Roscoea purpurea into a big clay display pot. Then I planted a few rosy mixed primula which all appear to be singles. I wait for each potted on plug to flower so I can have the colours where I want them. I also managed to do a bit of shredding before hail stopped play.

No laptops in the cabin on airplanes is going to cause havoc. How many will disappear out of luggage do you think?
