iPod issue. Nowt to do with gardening.

Posted: 16/11/2017 at 18:23

I've just done a search using "transferring music from ipod to ipod" and there do seem to be ways to do it.  First link I went to gives a step by step walkthrough.  Certainly worth having a look.

I'm always amazed at the range of tools Monty has.  I suspect many are provided free by manufacturers in the hope of making an appearance on GW.  Most, I suspect, are actually rarely used. 

How many of us have more than a couple of trowels and hand forks for example?  Look in Monty's shed and the wall seems to be covered with different trowels.

Hoe, hoe, hoe?

I've got one with a heart shaped head, sharp on all edges, which I find very effective.  Unfortunately no name on it so I can't provide a link.  There is a similar tool at our local garden centre but the head is much lighter, and the handle far too short for my use.

The software used to put music onto the iPod should allow it to be copied the other way - I think. Once copied to computer connect the other iPod and transfer to that one.

Problem that you face in the garden

Deep shade on the north side of walls and fences.  If you can get the sun to move round further before setting that would be wonderful.

Judging purely on the dance off, and that is what they are supposed to consider, it had to be Ruth going home.  Hopelessly out of time on the section before they came down the steps, almost being dragged round by Anton at times, and then tripping over her own feet towards the end!  Shame she had to go out that way as her original performance was much better.

Best mower for timothy grass

Thanks for the description Dove.  I know what Timothy grass is now.  It's not the sort of thing you'd normally find in lawns and that's where my knowledge of grasses begins and ends.

I presume part of the problem is the stalks wrapping around the workings of the mower and causing it to jam/overheat.

Best bet for the OP is to speak to a specialist garden or agricultural machinery company and get their ideas.  As they're a charity they may even get a good deal too.

As usual for me, I only started watching last week (4th November) and was amazed at how high the scores are.  10's flying everywhere.  In previous series it was very rare that the 10 paddle made an appearance many times before Blackpool, now it's starting to look as if they've been told to be nice to everybody. 

That said, I do agree that some of the scores and comments this week seemed unduly harsh.  Maybe the producers have thought the same and told the judges to revert to the standards of previous years.

I have to admit that I'd never heard of Timothy grass, and wondered if the question may have come from abroad.  I don't think the question regarding currency was unreasonable.

I'm intrigued as to what search criteria were used to determine that the sanctuary is around Manchester?

Having a Tree Preservation Order removed.

As it seems you can demonstrate that the claims made by the council official regarding heave are wrong, you should certainly approach the council again to try to get the TPO removed.  If that doesn't work, a letter from a solicitor to the council claiming for damage to property might concentrate their minds!
