Referendum, Doesn't it make you spit!!

I thought it was stretched when I worked in the NHS in the 90s so I can only imagine the pressures it's under now. I feel fortunate that although I had to wait a couple of months, I've have access to out patient physio in my local hospital. I'm so glad we have it. It's far from perfect, but we are so lucky.


I just heard on the radio that there's a bill or proposal abolishing the bursary schemes for student nurses. In it's place will be the student loan route. That's not going to help with recruitment of new British staff. In or out of the EU.

Anyone Into Nostalgea?

When ever I  hear this word I think of this tune. Nostalgia by Emily Barker, was used on Wallander some time ago.

Those spikes look an excellent idea Sheps, I've never seen them before, are they made out of plastic?

 

Beetroot

When did you plant them flower power? They do take a while to get going, slowly you should be able to see the beet part forming at soil level.


I think if you pick them when they are smaller they tend to be sweeter

They can grow into large plants Dove and they seem to adapt to different growing condtions. The first picture is fab. Gorgeous smell too


I think they are classed as invasive in some parts of the US
