What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 12:29

My favorite author is Scott Marini and his Ben Hope series, nine in total. Its like Jason Bourne meets Indiana Jones

tools missing in action (MIA)

The great tidy up has begun, and already I have lost two pair of scissors and a trowel. No idea where they are. They are down as MIA!

What items do you keep mislaying, and do you every find them?

now I have seen everything!

I was in my local GC today, and on demo was a remote lawnmower. I kid you not. They had it on some artificial grass and it was going up and down. It looked like a great big green ladybird. I think it was made by Viking?

Petrol Lawnmower any suggestion.

Thanks Alan for the spec. I will have a look at this one and Honda that others have mentioned. Take care

Hi All

I'm think of getting a petrol lawnmower, the electric one is really not suitable for our garden now. I have been holding off for a while, but now is the time to hang up its power cable. What makes would you suggest?

Also, I wish they would stop kidding us that the Sunday show is live when we all know they continue filming once the the live transmission stops. We like to pick a a woman in the front row of the audience and remember what she is wearing. You will notice she is wearing the same item on Sunday night. No woman wears the same outfit twice. Also the BBC would not get everyone dressed up for a half hour show.

I was actually getting bored with it. Bruno is getting a bit tiresome with his arm waving and those sketches they have at the beginning is a bit amateur. I miss some of the old professional dancers like Vincent and Flavia. Also less gimmicks at the beginning of the dance routine, it seems deliberately done to waste time.

Winter greenhouse

Hi Moira

I have a cold greenhouse over the winter. You have to keep the greenhouse well ventilated to stop dampness. You could start off some handy annuals off in pots

Thanks all, some good points from all of you. I have an idea what to do now. And you were right with the name Victoria, I knew when I saw it.
