Brilliant Brumbull, I like it. Reminds of the gag,

Two goldfish in a tank, one turns to the other and says, 'How do you drive this thing?'

When to plant Norway Maple seeds

Posted: 26/11/2013 at 12:19

I have some Norway Maple seeds picked up from the local park. I have just read in December GW that this is the month to plant tree seeds. Do I need to soak them first? and will normal Mufti-purpose compost do?

The Leaky Cauldron, or is that Greenhouse

Posted: 26/11/2013 at 12:01

Hi, I have an old alum greenhouse and the roof is starting to leak. There is no broken glass, it seems to be coming in-between the panes. Is there some kind of tape you can buy?

Weather Forecasting? Don't get me started

I have a BIG interest in the weather, obsessive my wife calls it. So what REALLY gets blood a boiling is how come in February, Accuweather predicted that will were going to get a heat wave in July, yet the BBC and Met Office cannot get their chats right!

I watch the weather in the morning on breakfast TV, it predicts one thing. You press the 'Red' button the charts say something different. Then you go to the BBC weather website five day charts, totally different again!

And that stupid BBC weather advert drives me crazy. It's the one where you just see someone looking up the next day or even hours weather on their i-phone and making plans on the results, as if its that accurate!

Does anyone feel this strongly, or do I need to lie in a darken room?

In the past I have had some really bad jobs! But now I work for an oil company in Aberdeen, good pay good working conditions, my own office listening to Classic FM.

I look back on the past jobs and think I'm so glad to be where I am now

I have noticed some coming through the gaps in between the slabs on the patio. I have started putting some seed pods along the rest of the gaps, hoping they germinate before the weeds and grass does. It would look lovely to see viola's all over the patio.
