well started with rain.. then sun then the heavens opened.. we took nipper to the circus.. thought best place in the rain.. and my god we could hardle here the ringmaster over the rain on teh big tent roof.. and then it started coming in..

but the acrobats etc soon took our minds of it.. and had lovely afternoon... except for the 12 daughter of the cricus owner being bender than a bendy rubber.. and nearly made my stomach churn with her folding over..

i understand your ocncersn.. but i dounbt it will lose posters through it.. this is a forum and i use lots of them.. and this ones has the lest problems of them all for running..

was told never to complain about something i could use for free.. and  i am sure they were aware if it before anything was said.. have you heard back form them to say why it was not running right?

i once again put it down to maintainence. which is required every now and then to keep it running as it does.

Yes we all pay a lot to use this forum and they must spend time sorting out this for us.


Oh, sorry, it's free and they get nothing out of it (except certainly costs of hosting/storage etc and perhaps even a negative effect as we all get answers from each other instead of subscribing to the magazine....)


I pay for most of my other fora...................


i have to agree with you there.. it is a free site and at times must need maintenance on it.. so runs slower or not at all.. but that is all part of computer systems for ya.. if i cant get on i just switch off and do it later.. there is nothing on this forum that is so urgent it will harm u if you dont respond or ask a question about that instant you able to get on..

this is a brilliant forum and i wish to keep it... so please lets not moan about not being able to post for some hours while its on the go slow..

Last  night promised rain all night and all day. Well not one drops.. it is heavy and humid and rain.

Our water butts emptied weeks ago now most of this month been watering from tap and used water.

Not had rain since 19th may here.. even my long standing large perennials are now wilting and withering. Have lost 10 plants so far.
