If my dad hadnt  had that job with BICC I wouldnt be living here now. They worked round the clock on that job, it never stopped. He made a lot of money enabling him to buy a big house in London, then gradually progressing to this where we are now. I am a very lucky girl.

And Fishy, you are a very naughty boy.

'Scuse my ignorance Frank, but what is the difference between the internet and the web? I cant really remember how much info was on the net in the 80's didnt have a computer then!

I think the expert book on veg growing is very informative, my dad used it and now me, how can things have changed so much for growing a cabbage or putting stuff on the compost heap, or liming your ground.

I weigh mine on digital scales, its the thickness, but I have a cardboard size chart from the post office so I can see if they go through the slot.

I just put the stamps on, you can get the type of stamp needed from the post office internet site.

I try to keep plants flat if poss as inder one inch they go for large letter rate.
