Blasted squirrels!

Somewhere on these threads I have seen that you can sprinkle nuts with chille. Perhaps bulbs? Squirrels hate it, birds don't notice it.

Our dog is very good squirrel chaser. Always wonder what i'll do if he catches one!!

I love ZD as well. Trying to find a suitable place for it. At moment all i can think of is to put it to grow up an old concrete washing line post about 8ft high. Would it be OK there?

Morning late with present mark this morning. 

Jist come back from swimming - today was encouraged to put nose in water and blow bubbles. As I have a thing about face in water was quite hard but did manage it a couple of times. did keep my chin under the water though that is progress to me

Bearded iris collection has come today that was in GW mag - more potting . Question should I pot and put in greenhouse (not heated) or pot and leave outside?

Last night I caught up on last weeks apprentice on iplayer, so still have to remember to catch up on yesterdays.

Had to buy tomatoes today, up to now we've been eating our own. Roll on next summer

See you all later

Never volunteer!

Wasn't there something in the depths of my memory that Green Shield Stamps were what became ARgos. Would be about nearly 40 years ago, as got my first set saucepans from Argos using green shield stamps!

It reminds me we both need new passports and I need a bus pass - never had one before. Both need photos. When we moved had to have the new style driving license

School boat Inka? Sorry if everyone knows all this but i'm a fairly new Forker.

I went on a cruise and there was a grey whale but at that moment I was on wrong side of ship!! Just my luck. one day i will see them in the sea. It's on my list of ???? things to do before _____

Perhaps one day we'll all have to have our finger stained when we vote so we can't do it again. Was that in Iraq or somewhere?
