Book Lovers and Library Users

Posted: 05/11/2014 at 09:06

I haven't used a library in 40 yrs. Did have a look in our re-furbished one quite recently but found it poorly stocked.

As a child and teenager I was an avid user and even asked if I could take out more than the two a week that  junior members were allowed.

Library is 10mins walk away and we have a central one 6 miles away.

I don't know if we have a mobile one.

Aged 56

If I used it I would prefer a small annual charge.

At what age would charges apply?

Verdun that's not good  I mean the scare not the funny.

Dove you've survived a year without work bet it's been really terrible  I'll wave back at 6pm with my Sparkler

Dove your post reminded me of another book I've got, dunno if NGCARDS would like it as it's not really about gardening does have some pics and references to Sissinghurst the author Nigel Nicholson lives there, he is the youngest son of Vita Sachville-West & Harold Nicolson.  The Portrait of a Marriage (Illustrated edition)

Morning again

MrsGarden no frost here, wet and 6C. My lavenders are okay over winter in the garden, granted they are in a well drained area, I thought it was excessive wet that did them in not cold

I have tulips in pots as well as in the garden, I planted the garden ones last year when bulb fever hit the forum  I'll have to wait and see if they show.

I've only had indoor hyacinths once OH found the perfume unappealing making some comment about tomcat. Might try a white ones.

Bill lovely Autumnal colours

Edd if bicarb gives you that much enthusiasm I might have to have some, Clari it might be cure to prevent hibernation. I remember my grandma taking it for another reason  well I guess that would also prevent sleeping too long.

Good morning

Great to have you back Edd. I need more tea before I attempt to read last evening's posts.

Best wishes to the workers

Hi Bill great to hear from you   slowly slowly catch a monkey  Do us a favour and keep the snow your side of the pond. Seriously hope you & MrsB are both okay and don't you go doing too much.

Been out for a good long walk today, taken some pics and as usual messed most up  as I've said on camera thread I'd better spend the winter months learning how to use this camera.

Hope all stay warm and have a nice evening. We are off out for a few drinks and a meal later, so time to make efforts to look like a girlie and not a lump of mutton
